Carly: an Ohioan folk punk nerd feminist and all around (wannabe) badass currently living in the east bay. Just another boring white, cis, middle-class girl who likes to read, travel, craft, engage in activism, learn, laugh, and hang out with her dog, Taco, and her fiance, Grant. BGSU alumni/SFSU grad student. Apparently now writes in the third person.

Anonymous said:So when you say "the gay community" who exactly do you mean? Cos that phrase is a large part of why a lot of people want to use "gay" as a label. Gay people get rights and a community and marriage and all that cool stuff. The rest of us get nothing. If they didn't want other people using that word they shouldn't have forced it on us. If we only get rights by assimilation then who are you to bite us for assimilating to survive?
