Oof, too real. My step father (Who I cut off all contact with for years) is not dead, but he recently gave me the equivalent of half a year’s rent in an attempt to rewrite the narrative of himself as a father figure and my first instinct was also to burn it.
But then I remembered that while he did spend my entire teen years trying to get my mother to disown me and joking about gay bashing, I’ve been the one living below the poverty line and paying for years of therapy, so I both earned and need that money and will also probably burn an effigy of him at some point anyway.
Oh and like the first thing I did was hit up the paypal and kofi accounts of a bunch of my fellow dirty, dirty queers who just needed a couple extra bucks to get by and that felt real good. I recommend it.
It’s gay money now!
From now on whenever I get money (from any source) I’m just gonna shout “it’s gay money now!!”
And you will be *completely right*
This hits a nerve. My grandmother is still alive and I am not looking forward to the possibility of a similar problem. I always thought it would be fun if she leaves me any money to donate it to a gay charity so that some good can come of her hatred. She’d be furious!
It would be really nice if shitty people dying brought more closure. Thanks for this, Archie.
oh my goodness this is perfect timing holy shit i needed this
This really hit me, more so the part where Ari was addressed by their/her(sorry forget what pronoun Ari uses) agab. However, the gay money at the end made it all better.
Not quite the same, but the uncle who I see the most in my hometown is very very homophobic, and every year he gives us each $100 for Christmas. Nothing makes me happier than spending at least half of that on round of drinks for me and my friends at our gay bar ?
this is so good, Arch. thank you. <3
Every time my partner’s parents tried to give us money my partner and I had two very different reactions: they would keep theirs and use it for, I don’t know, that same kind of gay rent and internet usage. I would donate it to Trans Lifeline and mail them a receipt.
