That an openly-gay woman can be elected to the Senate while men who make light of rape cannot, we give thanks, O God.

Our first ever black president has won a second term.

We now have openly gay and pansexual senators.

We now have a female veteran who lost both her legs in combat in office.

Puerto Rico is going to become a state.

More than one state has made marriage equality a reality.

We are living in a time of change, and it feels really fucking good.

Some of this is taken from other posts. Ladies makin’ history collage.

Mary Gonzalez is the Representative-elect for Texas and will be the first openly pansexual official in the United States. She acknowledged the existence of non-binary identities when she came out.

Mazie Hirono is the Senator Elect from Hawaii and will be the first Asian-American woman in the Senate.

Tammy Duckworth is the Representative-elect for Illinois. She lost both her legs in the Iraq War and will be the first disabled female veteran elected to the House.

Tammy Baldwin is the Senator Elect from Winsconsin and the first openly gay person ever elected to the Senate.

(There was some misinformation over her stance on transgender issues (admittedly, the whole incident was a bit fuzzy at the end) but to clear things up, she has publically spoken out against transgender discrimination and advocated for their rights as recently as last year.)

GET IT, GRRRRRRRRRRRL!

This is also a historic election because there are now more women in the senate than in any other time in US history!

LGBTQ* Musicians, Blues, and Music History You Should Know

Gertrude ‘Ma’ Rainey

Gertrude Malissa Nix Pridgett Rainey, better known as Ma Rainey (April 26, 1886 — December 22, 1939) was one of America’s earliest successful blues singers. 

What’s Queer* about her music?

‘Ma’ was openly (in her circles) bisexual. She was once arrested in Chicago (1925) for hosting an ‘indecent party.’ The party was shut down due to the room being full of scantily clad women and the raucous being hosted by a female driven party.

‘Ma’ highlighted her love for women in her song ”Prove It On Me Blues.”

They say I do it, ain’t nobody caught me

Sure got to prove it on me;

Went out last night with a crowd of my friends,

They must’ve been women, ‘cause I don’t like no men.

It’s true I wear a collar and a tie,

Makes the wind blow all the while

Don’t you say I do it, ain’t nobody caught me

You sure got to prove it on me.

Say I do it, ain’t nobody caught me

Sure got to prove it on me.

I went out last night with a crowd of my friends,

It must’ve been women, ‘cause I don’t like no men.

Wear my clothes just like a fan

Talk to the gals just like any old man

Cause they say I do it, ain’t nobody caught me

Sure got to prove it on me.

Teacher Tips: transphobia and cissexism are never okay and are just as hurtful as homophobia and heterosxism. Feel encouraged to step up and speak against them.

“ Gabriel Aguiniga, a gay employee at a Chick-fil-A in Colorado, also said the hardest part hasn’t been hearing Cathy’s comments. Instead, “[it’s] constantly having people come up to you and say, ‘I support your company, because your company hates the gays,’” Aguiniga, 18, wrote in an email. “It really takes a toll on me.” ”

In other news, people are monsters. Excerpt from “Chick Fil A’s anti-gay controversy: Gay employees speak out“  (via invisiblelad)

The religious stood together today outside of Chick-Fil-A’s nationwide.

More, in fact, at one time than we’ve ever seen waiting for a chance to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, or stand up for social outcasts whom society has marginalized.. like the entire homosexual community.

You know, things Jesus actually told his people to do.

Irony is a bitch.
