Hi everyone! So sadly, today is the last day of pride week. It’s been an amazing week and I’m so glad I got to celebrate with y’all. For the last day, we’ll be “taking action”. I’ve created a list of things you can do online and around your neighborhood or house to spread pride. Do as many as you can! (I’ll be posting the link on discord and…[Read more]
1. Most likely to live in a cottage in the woods:
2. Most likely to fall in a well:
we have a tie between @uraza169 and @leilamofwoodsbeyond
3. Most likely to have more than 5 kids
4. Best username:
We have another tie between @royalfudge and @boomboompancakes
5. Best at…[Read more]
If there was a most annoying category, I would have won by a landslide xD
Omg no you’re so nice! (You almost won best rper and most likely to fall in a well btw!)
ANI YOU ARE ******* AMAZING YOURE BOT ANNOYING IN THE LEAST
These are remarkably accurate.
Also- when the heck did this happen? I knew nothing about this XDXD
It was the activity thing for Friday I believe. Maybe you didn’t get a mention or something? Idk XD
I love how my defining trait is most likely to fall in a well XD
I did? Oh, nice. What for?
“I bet it was fall in a well.” (That’s my imaginary friend, Ava.)
Yeah, I would be wandering around with a book, and just, like, trip or something.
Actually yes XD, you got most likely to fall in a well and most like agatha.
Btw did I get voted at all? These are great and I just wanna know what people expect I’d do :}
You did! You were voted for most likely to die their hair a neon color and most like Sophie!
You were voted for most like agatha and you got quite a few votes for most active!
Briley you should know that I’m neverrrrr having kids irl XD
I mean plans change so no guarantees, but like- not planning on any, much less over 5 heh
I totally agree Leila….If I have children, I’ll have one and adopt another.
6th panelist post: Today is another pretty chill day. We’re talking about stereotypes. So comment a stereotype you’ve heard about your sexuality or another sexuality and if you’d like to, you can explain why it’s false.
Calls: zoom at 1pm EST and hangouts at 6pm EST
Cards against humanity game at 3pm EST
Also I think the pride festival is today…[Read more]
Less a stereotype, but more a misconception: of a bisexual is dating someone of their gender, they are homosexual, and someone of the opposite, they are straight. Bisexuals’ (and pansexuals and polysexuals too, and, well, many people really) sexuality is not defined by their partner!
Very common one: Queer/Bisexual/Trans/Fluid/NB people are just confused
If you have ever said this unironically, I will punch you in the face
my least favorite ones:
1. Lesbian girls are all tomboys. all I have to say is, AHHHHH-
2. We shame girls in the lgbtqiap+ community who have boyfriends. AHHH-
3. (this one goes for all the people in the lgbtqiap+ community) “iT’s JuSt a ChOiCe” bish if I had the choice to not like my ex-best friend who hates me I would 100% not but here we are…[Read more]
literally if sexuality was a choice i would only be attracted to women like have you ever SEEN a girl hecking crAP-
My brain: h-hey
My brain: girls
Me: …. interesting
My brain: b-but also consider
My brain: boys
Me: you make a good point…
My brain: also
Me: what now
My brain: everyone
My low self-esteem: they’re prettier than you
Me, used to it now: yeah everyone is but I WANNA DATE THEM
My brain: then what’s your…[Read more]
I have ✨no idea✨ what mine is. People tell me I am Ace but like bruh that isn’t your place. A
yas girl the only one who can decide your sexuality is you (
and your unhelpful brain ), don’t let anyone else tell you anything
The one I hate a lot is that lesbians are all tomboys. IM A ******* FEMME WHO LIKES ART AND FASHION. I HATE SPORTS. IM STILL GAY.
Bisexual isn’t 50% gay 50% straight. That ain’t how it works. Bisexual is liking 2 genders, not being half and half
1. All nonbinary people present androgynous! This is a hurtful stereotype because it enables people who say “you don’t look ___.”
2. The “effeminate” gay man. First, the idea of being “effeminate” feeds into toxic masculinity, where there is a certain “manly” way a man should act. Second, assuming all gay men are “effeminate” perpetuates myths…[Read more]
Thanks Cats for reminding me of this one:
6. Nonbinary people are half male, half female. So untrue, and can lead to so many uncomfortable jokes. I experience this one basically daily, actually, by my parents, classmates, teachers, and random people I meet. It seems like this is the one stereotype no one ever gets called out for making.
Okay, reading these, I have realized how privileged I am. Like, I am a half-Caucasian, middle-upper class girl, and I have never been bullied. I haven’t had to go through all the stuff y’all have, and now, I want to punch someone. I’m your mom now.
Luckkkyy bullying s.ucks:(
ugh i hate it when people say **** males are soft and lesbians are boyish and sporty like seriously
1-pansexuality is just bisexuality
2-pansexuals are attracted to pans
3-pansexuals just want attention
4-pansexuals are greedy
5-pansexuals are indecisive when it comes to love
6-pansexuals are attracted to every singe person they see
7-pansexuals are more likely to cheat on their partners
8-pans and bis hate each other
9-pansexuals date…[Read more]
9- That’s POLYSEXUAL GET YOUR TERMS CORRECT YOU IGNORANT HOMOPHOBIC PIECE OF TRASH
Y’all I think she’s just listing the stereotypes, not that she believes them.
Angel polysexuals don’t date multiple people at once. I mean unless they’re a ****
Thats rude to say and hurtful and I doubt you have proof to back up your claims
And why are you hating on pan people and half of those things you said are false. and i’m pretty sure pan people respect others people identity more than you do
No guys she’s listing the pansexual stereotypes that she hates. She doesn’t believe in them
OHHH I’m SUPER SORRY I thought she was saying what she believed in. I’m SUPER SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!
5th panelist post: Today is the pride festival! Y’all can comment any questions about anything and all of the panelists can answer.
@boomboompancakes and @skyeoffoxforest will be hosting a party and we’ll be doing SGE superlatives. https://forms.gle/QLPLKq46VSvDBxVT8

WAIT the party post was supposed to be today???? FRICK I thought it was tomorrow–I usually do NOT mix up things like this FRICK
*is about to rush off the start setting things up when Berry grabs me by the arms and starts pulling me back*
“Um. IS it okay for it to be tomorrow or–?”
Good morning! 4th panelist post: the theme is Demisexual, Asexual, Aromantic, and Graysexual/romantic. The panelists are @goodandevil5050 @lucyeverynameoflumaria @rhianmustdie and @ivypool2005
Info about today: Today’s actually just a pretty chill day. @gris was gonna make a seeking sanity post but I believe she had to take a break from the site…[Read more]
Ok so I’m not one of the panelists but I am Demiromantic (possibly also demisexual) so yeah. So I knew because I have a crush who I want to be in a relationship with (basically what a crush means), but she’s the only person I feel attracted to. Like ever. Like I see other people but I’m just like “meh.” Basically that’s what happend for me
I love what Lucy said to me about this: since the ace/aro spectrums are all about not feeling things, you don’t know for certain that you never will experience a certain type of attraction – but you’re still allowed to identify as aspec/arospec, because 1) we’re smart and can make educated guesses about ourselves and 2) it’s not a big deal if you…[Read more]
Hello! I’ll try to answer this question.
I think it depends on the person in all honesty. You don’t know straight away that your that se.xuality. Like some people may know after their first crush that, “Oh, I’m this.” but some people it could take research and having 3 crushes or no crushes at all to discover what sexuality you are. It really…[Read more]
I’m not a panelist either, but i’ll say anyway. I’m aroace (aromantic and asexual). I’m kinda new to all the LGBTQ+ stuff because i never really knew it was even a thing, i just figured people date and get married, idk. I’m asexual because the idea of having s*x always grossed me out and just…no. I guess i was always asexual, even if i didn’t…[Read more]
@alexofroom66 I don’t mean to be rude but that could mean many things. I’ve only ever had a notcrush, and I don’t feel attracted to people but I don’t think I’m well…anything yet. I believe it’s all your own definition, because it’s your s*uality!
*many things for different people, I’m not trying to say that your s*xuality is wrong or any of that *swear word*
Demisexual means that you only experience s*xual attraction toward people with whom you already have a close relationship (usually, this means your friends). Similarly, demiromantic means you only experience romantic attraction toward your friends. Some people use demisexual as an umbrella term encompassing both demisexual and demiromantic, just…[Read more]
Hi! 3rd panelist post, y’all know the drill. The theme for today is Queer and Pan. Panelists for today are @everimagine and @kittencaravalsge
Info about today: @pencilpeytie is running an art contest! Check this doc for info: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ogSVlMfDwg8fXlTPHlbqacDpLX6iqQN4aLAbxDn-c30/edit?usp=sharing

Do y’all queer folks ever feel pressure to figure yourselves out and find out what your sexuality really is because your internalized homophobia is telling you that queer isn’t a real sexuality PLEASE I CANT BE THE ONLY ONE
Absolutely! Queer is a relatively newer term, and being a reclaimed term it isn’t for everyone. As such, not everyone knows about it or what it means, which is where defining oneself as queer can seem controversial or invalid, in a sense. But this is no way a case! All sexualities are valid, all feelings are valid, everyone is perfectly valid.
So I came out to my parents about 9 or so months ago as Bi, but lately I’ve been back to questioning whether or not I’m Pan. Any advice for how to figure that stuff out?
I would recommend trying to define being bi and being pan based on what the terms mean to you, not just the textbook definitions.
That’s absolutely right! And a quick test: Could you imagine yourself dating guys? Could you imagine yourself dating girls? Could you imagine yourself dating nonbinary folks? If you answered yes to two of those questions, you’re probably bi. If you answered yes to all three of those questions, you’re probably pan. (Remember that bi just means…[Read more]
Hi! So this is the second panelist post (plus info about today). Comment questions or anything related to trans, fluid, or non-binary. The panelists for today are @ivypool2005 @kittencaravalsge and @pencilpeytie
Info about today: @leilamofwoodsbeyond and @ginger are running a poetry contest with the theme “stuck in the wrong body”. I believe Leila…[Read more]
At any point, did you try to gaslight yourself and say that you weren’t actually trans/nb/fluid, or were you afraid of what the consequences of coming out would be?
OH yeah. I came out as FTM trans before 8th grade because I was feeling a lot of pressure to “just choose one.” All through 8th grade, I knew that living as a boy didn’t feel right, but I tried to convince myself otherwise for a long time because I thought that if I changed my mind, people would invalidate me in one way or another. Came out as NB…[Read more]
This is because I know someone who is trans, like used to be male but is now female.
So this trans person before becoming a girl married a girl when she was a boy. She then became trans. Does that make the person she married trans or pan or gay?
Hey jess alex and I are running the poetry contest too
Omg I’m so sorry, I forgot that. Peep my disorginazation and terrible memory
Y’ALL, COVE AND ALEX ARE RUNNING THE POETRY CONTEST TOO!
Ahh it’s completely cool, just though I should let you know XD
Hey, where do you submit the poetry entries? I want to submit a poem
Hi guys, the post is actually is my activity, and you have to put your submission on the document provided in our information post. Can’t wait to see the submissions!
How do you explain being trans/non-binary to people who have doubts about it, don’t understand, or otherwise ask?
First of all, I’d suggest reading a lot of articles, posts, etc. explaining those topics. Reinforce your own knowledge so that you’re able to answer most questions off the top of your head. Most people who have doubts just don’t know enough, and if you can answer their questions with certainty, it’ll help a lot.
For brief interactions, you can…[Read more]
If that wasn’t the answer you were looking for, tell me 🙂 cause I think I may have misinterpreted what you meant
I’m curious what you do if you’re trying to explain the gender spectrum to someone who doesn’t think it’s real, or are transphobic, or might just be having trouble understanding it.
It’s really hard to try to explain anything to a person who isn’t willing to listen, and most of the time, I’d say it’s not worth your effort. That being said, here are some things you can say when faced with ignorant comments (plus a lot of potentially unnecessary starring so the censor doesn’t kill my words):
Your gender is defined by your…[Read more]
Forgot to include the ultimate response to any ignorant or hateful comment:
“It’s my life. Why do you care so much about tearing me down for something that doesn’t really affect you?”
So this is the first panelist post! Basically anyone can comment any questions,
experiences, etc. related to les, gay, bi, or questioning (since that’s today’s theme) and the panelists for today- @gris @fairytalegirl123 @thecoven4ever @sapphy @malin @hester112 and @carrot123 can answer, give advice, and give support.
Also, if you want to, sub…[Read more]
hello everyone! im one of the lesbian panelists so ask me anything 🙂
can i be bi and just not say anything about it?
@queendeansophieofwoodsbeyond I’m not a panelist for this day but I would like to answer this – yes! Absolutely! You have no obligation to come out / be out to anyone, and it doesn’t make you any less a part of the LGBT+ community if you choose not to say anything about your sexuality.
I’m a questioning panelists feel free to ask me anything at all.
I’m also one of the questioning panelists, go ahead and ask me some questions!
So, I was just wondering how you guys…..like knew that you were bi/gay/les?
alright, @anadil777 and @bookworm123456789, storytime!
i had always known i was “different.” i had never liked a boy before and it seemed every girl, even in fourth or fifth grade, wanted a boyfriend and had had many boy crushes. the only lgbt person i knew, and it wasnt until fifth grade that he came out, was a friend who had come out as a…[Read more]
How do you/would you explain your sexuality in a few sentences?
I might explain it as who you love, how you love them, or what you identify as for your gender.
Oh sorry I got this question wrong:
I would explain it as:
I am attracted to people of the same *** and the opposite *** but I do not like to be called a girl. I don’t like what the word implies and though I am fine with the pronouns, I consider myself non-binary, or I don’t really consider myself one gender or the other.
I’m one of the questioning panelists too! I honestly don’t know who I am at this point, quarantine has been getting to me.
So tomorrow is the first day of pride week! You’ll be getting quite a few notifs throughout the week, and I encourage you to try to look at as many as possible because most of them will have important info! So just check your mentions every now and then. (and also read this all the way through cause it’s extremely…[Read more]
@smyleethechikin hey! so i just wanted to check in- you offered to host the monday and tuesday calls. does that still work for you? Also the monday discord call has been canceled due to the fact that not many people can come to it, so you’ll be running the monday zoom at 7:00pm EST, the tuesday zoom at 6:00pm EST, and the tuesday hangouts call at…[Read more]
