Causal reminder that the top statistic is higher than it is for gay and lesbian kids.
Actually, they’re all higher. Look at the source links.
Does it really matter whose statistic is higher? We’re all part of the same community and we all get shit thrown at us from people in different ways sure, but it hurts all the same.
It matters when most of the visibility and resources in our shared community go towards helping white, cis, gay and lesbian people, when other parts of the community are in worse shape and are consistently ignored and erased.
and then there’s the fact that a lot of the shit thrown at us is from the lg part. like. really there’s cishets, cisgays, and then there’s everyone else in an ever expanding pool of oppression and i’m so sick of it soooooo sick of it
