Imagine Person A is going into labor with Person B’s baby. They rush to the hospital and B holds A’s hand as they give birth to the new baby. Person B seems even more nervous then they should be, which Person A notices but ignores. When the doctor pulls out the baby, they find it is a duck crossed with a human. Person B pulls their mask off to show that they are a duck. B apologizes, but A kisses them and tells them they love them, human or duck.

If you are a cishet pagan/witch and you use the term “coming out of the broom closet” please unfollow me thanks
I’m just going to admit to the fact that it literally took me half on hour to understand what they were saying. I thought they had just misspelled cis somehow and was really confused about what my gender had to do with anything. Then I realized it was an abbreviation for cisgendered heterosexual. Them it made a lot more sense and I stopped being offended because I don’t even call into that category. Cis, but not hetero. I will say that from personal experience of coming out of both “closets” in about the same couple of years, it was so much easier to come out as a bisexual (though I now identify as pansexual). Many of my friends identified as homosexual, bisexual, etc, many were trans or gender queer, so me finally admitting that I liked girls made me almost normal. But when I admitted to being pagan? I lost a lot of friends, received death threats, people would threaten to burn me even pulling out lighters, people targeted me for bullying (at least until a rumor went around that I cursed and sacrificed my enemies), even my parents were hostile towards my faith and not my sexuality. I could date any girl I wanted but worshipping Apollo would send me to hell. Depending on the area one is from, “coming out of the broom closet” is a very accurate term because it can be just as dangerous, if not more (as in my case) to admit to being a pagan. In some countries it’s just as much of a death sentence. Like in, oh I don’t know, Syria? No, the two are not even close to the same thing. Religion is a choice, gender and sexuality is not. But it’s not always seen that way and both can be a very dangerous thing to make public.
I have to say, this is something that has been bothering me a lot lately. This whole idea of self-segregation. All of this “This is mine and you can’t use it because you’re not like me” crap. I’m tired of it. Why? Because this very attitude is what gets people into trouble. This attitude is the reason there is so much hatred running rampant in the Universe. Hatred which will only destroy us. Somewhere along the line as cultures collided we neglected to learn that we are all human beings of the same species. We are all made of the same basic materials; of skin and bones, blood and scar tissue. We all hurt and we all bleed. We have all been scarred and damaged and made to believe that we do not deserve to be loved or to live a life filled with joy and contentment. We all have something that we are afraid to say out loud, something that we hide deep within ourselves. So what if someone is cis, white, & hetero, does that mean that their secret is any less legitimate, that their fear is any less justified? I just wish that we would all stop trying to one up each other with our battle wounds and instead connect over them. We’ve all been through things we shouldn’t have had to go through and the last thing any of us needs is for someone to deepen that wound by saying that we didn’t suffer enough. No one should have to suffer. Ever. So stop making others feel less than just because you’re trying to protect your own pain.
And if my ramblings aren’t good enough for you, here’s Ash Beckham saying these things a lot better than I can:
