T I R E D // Although it doesn’t look like it in this picture I think Toby is suffering from a severe case of end-of-term-itis. He’s so tired, we’ve had a lot of tears, and moaning that he doesn’t want to go to school. Just a few more days to get through though, and tomorrow is his first school disco. He’s very excited about it but it’s going to mean a later bedtime than usual for an already tired boy - I predict there’s going to be a few more meltdowns before the week is out!
Meanwhile I had a lovely spa day at @ribbyspahotel today with @tots100, @lindy_ and @goingonanadventureblog - so I’m feeling relaxed and refreshed at least! #tiredboy#endofterm
Being straight (by the very conventional definition) isn’t just about being interested in having sex with the ‘opposite sex’ but everything that comes with it—the almost always generous acceptance from mainstream culture is part of that ‘everything’, the possible absence of self-denial regarding ones own sexual orientation is another, curiosity from people of another sexual orientation and the need to produce an explanation for them is almost non-existent. (I personally love curious straight cisgender people who ask me questions because every time I explain my understanding of gender and sexual orientation to them I understand myself better.) Apart from those surface floating ‘facts’ and what they affects conventional straight people’ minds and living experiences there are much more.
I guess in this sense it’s fair for me to not identify with the ‘L’ in LGBT+, but in this sense I’m not gay nor straight (both with a ‘trans’ male identity I no longer fully identify myself with) either, I’m something else. I don’t need to know, I just know that I love people that are not ‘helpless’ and no one with a good heart is ‘helpless’. So theoretically I‘m potentially able to love everyone at least in a platonic way, then the rest ... I’m lost
