I love Sesame Street videos too much.
Unpopular opinion: The best show in the history of television is not I Love Lucy or Mad Men or The Sopranos or Breaking Bad or Seinfeld.

*very quiet voice* queer spaces need to be safe for people of faith too
I don’t think about this enough. How do I make spaces more inclusive to people of faith.
By not talking about how silly and gross religion is and by not comparing sexuality to other things forbidden in the Old Testament like shrimp, etc.
Also don’t take a queer person of faith’s identity as an invitation to ask them invasive questions about their sex life, don’t shit on people who maintain a certain sexual code for religious reasons, don’t shit on them for any other religious guidelines they might follow (like if they can’t do or eat certain things at an event) and don’t generalize all people of faith as “closeminded and stupid” (doing this also has classist and xenophobic implications and is just generally a dick move). Also in general be willing to listen to the narratives of queer people of faith and don’t dismiss any issues they might have with the community just because of their religious affiliation.
The police raided a church because they believed that the church was offering hospitality. The police raided a church because giving people a place to rest is against the law. The police raided a church because caring for people goes against the aims of empire and must be stopped.
You cannot serve the United States and the Kingdom of God. You cannot honor a badge and the cross. You cannot love the state and your neighbor.
locusimperium, you were saying something about wanting to know how Ferguson organizes? I think we’ve found part of an answer.
(you know, in case any of you were wondering)
