There were a few attempts by working-class and young lesbians in the 1950s and ’60s to build institutions other than the gay bars. The most notable was the softball team. During those years many lesbians formed teams or made up the audiences for teams all over the country. Women’s softball leagues usually had at least one or two teams that were all lesbian, and most of the other predominately heterosexual teams had a fair sprinkling of lesbians. The games did succeed in providing legends and heroes for the lesbian subcultures, as well as offering both participants and viewers some possibility for making lesbian contacts outside of the bars. However, as a Californian woman recalls of her softball playing days, ‘We had no place to go after the games but the bars.’ The bars were often even the team sponsors, providing uniforms and travel money. And it was ‘an unwritten law,’ according to a Nebraska woman who played during the ’50s, that after the game you patronized the bar that sponsored you. Young and working-class lesbians who had no homes where they could entertain and were welcome nowhere else socially were held in thrall by the bars, which became their major resort, despite attempts to escape such as the formation of athletic teams.

i found it interesting that we’ve been trying to get away from the bars-only life from the very beginning. :/ in my softball league, we’re still often sponsored by bars, end up at bars, or have alcohol there at the park.

I 100% think we should eat mac n cheese together and also how did it go??

*fist pump*

it went… not very well. the slowly developing positive side of my brain is telling me that this was my first audition and it’s not likely that i’ll be good at this when i’ve only just started. basically i think i was too stiff and not expressive enough and the chance that they’ll call me back is under 1%. but there will be others. and in the meantime i will allow myself to look silly by practicing in the mirror.

Light reflects from your shadow

It is more than I thought could exist

You move through the room

Like breathing was easy

i’m honestly feeling terrible tonight. i think wearing that bra for the audition really did some damage, you know? i think the fact that i shaved didn’t help either. it all set off my dysphoria majorly. long after i’d changed into my normal clothes, i stopped at the mall to pick up a couple groceries on the way home and passed by one of the floor length mirrors. i almost burst into tears right there. even though i was wearing my binder, my chest looked huge and unmistakable, (whereas usually to me it looks flat and ambiguous). i wanted to drop everything and run and hide to be alone with my self loathing. it’s been a long time since i’ve felt so dysphoric.

after i got home i curled up on my bed and fought not to go into my closet and bring out my knife. i feel like all i need is just one cut. but i’ve been clean since february i think so i guess it would be bad to give in now.

Do not hate homosexuals, bisexuals, asexuals, ect
But do not hate heterosexuals.

Do not hate trans*gender, agender, non-binary people
But do not hate cissexuals.

Do not hate people of color
But do not hate white people.

Do not hate women
But do not hate men.

Do not hate Christians
But do not hate atheists.

Hatred only breeds more hatred. Is it that hard to understand?

This needs more attention than it’s gotten.

Posts like these literally get more attention, more notes than any post about marginalized groups and lgbtq people. This whole “hatred only breeds more hatred”, while a great quote, is often a way of overshadowing and undermining real issues of power imbalance, systematic oppression, and inequality. I understand yall wanna tell people to simply not hate one another. But when I notice more white/cis/hetero people reblogging posts like these, all while never reblogging any posts about systematic racism, white privilege, transphobia, and the blatant hatred and oppression of marginalized groups, it’s easy to tell the difference between “hate breeds more hate” and “stop being angry at your oppressors”. The latter is not okay.
