When you try to legitimise the use of stupid, contradictory terms like “heteroromantic homosexual” you are erasing romantic & emotional attraction from homosexuality, you are reinforcing the idea that homosexuality is purely about having sex & has nothing to do with love. This is so hurtful for gay & lesbian young people whose families & peers believe their sexual orientations are based in sexual deviance & perversion. I know so many homophobic people who can’t even comprehend the idea of someone falling in love with a person of the same sex. I can’t even convince them that lesbian women & gay men in happy, loving relationships exist because as soon as they hear words like gay or homosexual they think of predators grooming children into their “disgusting lifestyle” & that is the full extent of the image they want to have about homosexual people.
I abhor that people take words & concepts that are useful for specific contexts & apply them to contexts they are most definitely not meant for. Hint: romantic labels are for asexuals only. Romance is a component of sexuality so if you’re not asexual there is no point in calling yourself “homoromantic” this or “heteroromantic” that, & you are not a lesbian if you are romantically interested in men. Lesbians are women who are romantically & sexually attracted to women. Stop trying to change the meaning of words & stop taking words that aren’t meant for you so you can create your very own special snowflake identity. I don’t care if you only fall in love with men & only have sex with women or vice versa. Find another word.

I just realised I was baby talking a cat gif (more precisely a baby leopard gif). Was this the first time or have I been doing this for weeks, months, years?? and not noticing?
Went out to the country today, near where I grew up, with a friend. I think she liked it.
