straight is not the template

let’s start acting like there are infinite ways to experience sexuality / gender

being straight / cisgender is not the ‘normal’ way to live – it’s just one of many alternatives.

let’s stop forcing heteronormativity & the gender binary as if it’s the only way.

let’s stop expecting kids to be straight / cisgender – there’s a good chance they won’t be.

let’s stop telling kids they’re too young to know they’re LGBTQ+ but old enough to know they’re straight/cis – these double standards WILL harm them.

by basing the world on straight / binary models, we ignore a huge part of it

as well as continuing the marginalisation of LGBTQ+ people

let’s stop acting like it’s ‘normal’ to be straight / cisgender and ‘abnormal’ to be LGBTQ+

straight is not the template
