"The Way Things Were"

Posted by Queen of Noise , Aug 29 2014 · 545 views

I know I can never go back to the way things were before and I’m not deluded enough to think that. That’d be damaging anyway because it’d mean I didn't learn anything. I just want to be able to have relationships with the people who matter to me again, with whatever changed boundaries are necessary as a result of our actions.

I don’t want to pretend nothing happened and I don’t want to ignore the consequences of what I've done. So I know it can’t just “go back to how things were.” That’s not what I’m looking for.

Some of the things that were done to me were not fair, but I also was unfair and wrong to do some of the things I did.

Introducing the BZP Gender Squad

Posted by Queen of Noise , Aug 20 2013 · 1,667 views
gender, feminism, lgtbqa and 1 more...
I'm very proud to announce today something that's been in the planning stage for a while now, and recent onsite events show that the timing could not be more critical.  After many weeks of planning, we are excited to debut the BZPower Gender Squad.

Gender and sexuality can be complicated subjects, especially within the difficult social context of this world, but understanding them is critical to understanding each other and making that world an equal and safe place for us all.  Women, men, and non-binary persons of all flavors face enormous pressures regarding these issues, both conscious and subconscious - and the unprivileged face enormous discrimination.  

It's no secret that this discrimination exists on BZPower as well, as has been shown time and again.  Indeed, many feel particularly unsafe and unsupported on BZPower, which is a very sobering reality about a community that is supposed to be safe, welcoming, and family-friendly.  We can't call this a safe community when members are attacked and degraded for expressing or even merely mentioning a gender identity that doesn't conform to cissexual heteronormity.  

We want to do something about that.

Our main goal is to provide a support network for LGTBQA+ and women members on BZPower, a community of solidarity and support.  We want to make sure that no-one has to feel alone and no-one has to feel unsafe.  Whether you're casually mentioning something about your gender identity, or being hurt by bigots someone is here for you.  We know how you feel; we've been there too - and we've got your back.  

Do you need a support network to listen or help concerning your gender/sexuality issues?  Do you need to talk about something and have no-one to go to, onsite or off?  That's what we're here for.  Is someone spouting hateful things to you and you're too hurt or stressed to reply?  Talk to us.  No matter the situation, you are not alone and we care.  This support network is the most valuable thing we wish to provide.  We all want to feel safe and supported.

While support for LGBTQA+, women, and questioning members will be a mostly private affair, a more public application of the Gender Squad will be education.  As said, gender and sexuality are complex, multifaceted issues with lots of social context to examine.  We'd like to provide a resource for education about these issues here on BZPower - a visible, proactive presence in the community rather than just a reactive one.  We'll be posting essays and articles in the blogs as well as running a Gender Q&A where we'll do our best to answer any questions and clear up any confusion you may have.  We'll also be running an offsite blog as a headquarters for this operation, destroythepatriarchy.tumblr.com.  My blog, Camp Equality, will be the onsite HQ.  

We want to be a positive presence in this community.  We want all members to feel safe, supported, and equal; and we firmly believe that the first step to erasing ignorance and bigotry is education and example.  We're here for all of you, with glitter and kisses.  

I'm proud to be a part of this and looking forward to engaging positively with you all!  

Now it's time for me to introduce you to Team FEMME, the elite action committee of the BZP Gender Squad:

Andi is a punk princess who spends most of her free time playing guitar or reading feminist literary criticism.  She's also an accomplished cook whose banana bread is famous throughout the Mid-Atlantic.  Focus area: Feminism (incl. transwomen issues)

Becca is a gorgeous pansexual who only figured it out after entering a heterosexual marriage. She is a Sailor Senshi who will punish you in the name of animu.  Focus areas: Feminism; LGBTQA+ and Christianity
 
Bryan dies a little inside every time he hears "straight pride". Focus area: Teaching the 12 steps of Oppression Anonymous

Canama is a agendered or genderfluid - he's not 100% sure, because gender can be confusing sometimes!  He also suffers from Chron's disease and depression and may have a history of hositle hospital takeovers.  Focus area: Non-binary identities

Jessica is the proud mother of BAC.  She is the force of LIBERNTY GUIDING THE POEPLE.  Focus area: Transgenderism and people being shmucks

Ran is an angry transgirl who has absolutely zero time for your offal.  She's also adorable but won't admit it.  Focus area: LGBT issues and being steamed about all this stuff all the time

Rob is a useless piece of smut who has a thing for butts.  But he used to be known as the "BZP Staff Therapist" and that's because he's a wonderful listener.  Focus area: being cishet scum

Ryuujin likes music, science, and everybody being equal everywhere forever.  Focus area: sympathy and support for those facing the pressures of life in the closet

Shane is NOT Windrider's gay lover no matter how much he claims to be, because Andi has filled that role since 2004.  Shane, instead, is a lovable screwup.  Focus area: Gay and Bisexual issues


Destroy the patriarchy!

! Please Stop and Read This !

Posted by Queen of Noise , Aug 16 2013 · 843 views

This is just an open letter to, well, everybody, in direct response to the goings-on in the blogs currently.  Please take a moment to read it.
 
1. I understand this is probably all overwhelming for some of you and I don't blame you for that but please don't say that we need a "change of subject."  Because even if you don't want to talk about these issues, they are important and need to be tackled head-on if we want to work to make our community truly safe and family-friendly.  We're finally making some real headway towards safety and equality on this site and that should not be stalled just because you don't want to read about it.
 
2. It's not the right of the privileged to tell the oppressed how to act or be.  That's relevant both in terms of the actual oppression and in how you treat response to it.
 
3. Please don't confuse "everyone should be treated equally" with "everyone's views are equal."  We are all equal as human beings, and part of that means we all should be held equally responsible and accountable for our beliefs, words, and actions.  Some beliefs are toxic.  Some words and actions are harmful.  These things should not be "respected" or be exempt from criticism, because they hurt people and that is wrongDegrading a human being is wrong no matter what you believe.  Criticizing and calling out toxic and harmful beliefs, actions, and words, is NOT wrong - and in fact is necessary if we are ever to move forward as a safe, peaceful, and respectful society. 
 
All right, that's all.  Thank you for reading; carry on now and please remember these three points in your continuing discourse. 
 
Glitter and kisses,
Princess Grr
 
ps: destroy the patriarchy!
