do not support your friends who turn out to be rapists.
do not doubt your friends who have been raped.
unfriend the rapists.
protect the abused.
we may never touch queerness, but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality….the future is queerness’ domain. queerness is a structuring and educated mode of desiring that allows us to see the future beyond the quagmire of the present….we must dream and enact new and better pleasures, other ways of being in the world, and ultimately new worlds….queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.

Anonymous asked: I was assaulted by somebody who everyone is still friends with. I don't know how to deal with it. My anxiety is too bad to ever tell anyone what he did to me.
I don’t know how long this has been in my ask box because I never seem to get notifications about new messages, but I’m so so sorry for not responding sooner.
I don’t know who you are, and I don’t know the specifics of the situation, but I DO have my own experience in what sounds like a very similar situation. I know what it’s like to be assaulted and betrayed by someone you trust and to not feel like you can tell those around you because that abuser is someone close to your group of friends. I know what it’s like to hold it in for a year, but I also know what it’s been like to start telling those you love and seeking the help that I, at least, very desperately needed. I also understand how anxiety issues certainly don’t make anything easier.
Again, I am so sorry for not seeing this ask sooner. If you feel comfortable coming off anon, I will be here to talk if that’s the kind of support you need.
In the meantime, here’s a link to a masterpost that might be comforting or helpful for all kinds of related issues: http://zalfiesleighs.tumblr.com/post/60423162211/here-is-a-list-of-blogs-websites-or-videos-that
The fact that you even sent this ask was probably heart-pounding nerve-wracking awful, but I’m so so glad that you did. Every teeny tiny thing is AMAZING. Please don’t hesitate to message me if you want to. You deserve to feel safe and loved and supported.
