Sports and the Death of Impostor Syndrome
Here’s something I love about the whole doing-sports thing I’ve gotten into lately: it completely wrecks your impostor syndrome.
Like most mortals out there, I suffer from a sometimes-paralysing sense that, unlike everyone else in the world, I’m just…

Everytime my husband tells me about some sporting stars achievements etc, I just reply with ‘yeah but he’s ugly’ and he gets so mad but he can’t say anything because he knows this is what women go through every single time we achieve something.

Anonymous asked: Bisexual is when you just see men and women as men and women. You don't date transgender, you don't think people can be out of the binary. Pansexual is when you date whoever you want, regardless of their place in the LGBTQ. - For the incredibly lazy anon who can't be arsed to google.
No okay no. Some bisexuals date transgender people but that’s besides the point, what really aggravates me is that you say “bi people don’t think people can be out of the binary”. Hello I’m bi I totally think people can be out of the binary. This message seems kind of uneducated, even if you had good intentions, this really hurt me. -Vicky
This message was biphobic as all hell. Bisexuality means “attracted to your gender and other genders.” It was also transphobic since trans men are men and trans women are women, so a bi person who was into men and women would be into trans men and trans women.
I also see bisexuality as “attracted to people with whom relationships would be perceived by others as het, and attracted to people with whom relationships would be perceived by others as queer”. It’s got nothing to do with binary gender.
Also, I’m not sure what “pansexual is when you date whoever you want” is supposed to mean. It feels like it’s implying that straight, gay and bi people aren’t dating who they want to, which is one hell of a fucked-up assumption.
