kinda wish someone was touching me inappropriately right now
When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
This should be required learning, internationally.
You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten.
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now.
Make it stop?
I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.
My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable.
I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and our current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph 175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph 175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.

"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This
This just punched me in the heart.
I don’t go to pride events due to this reason. I’ve gotten so much hate, and street harassment directed at me I just can’t deal with it. It kills me to say it, but I’ve gotten more hate hurled at me by gay men then I have from anyone else. It ranges from being called a “breeder” to horrible comments about my body-type and weight.
I don’t understand, and it hurts. A lot.
Same same same.
In my experience, there’s not a whole lot to understand. Being a member of one oppressed group doesn’t mean that you’re not complicit in the oppression of others - and a lot of gay men within the activist community are horrible misogynists. They’re going after bisexual women because they can get away with it. As a bisexual dude, I get hassled by some LGBT activists, too, but I don’t get it one-tenth as badly as bisexual women do, and you’re fooling yourself if you think even for a second that it’s not just bog-standard misogyny finding an acceptable outlet.
