When I asked my grandmother if I could use her sewing machine, after she set it up, she drew my attention to these sewing scissors that she had stashed nearby. “These,” she told me, “were your great-grandmother’s scissors. You may use them to snip your thread.” My great-grandmother was a legendary seamstress. Sewing was not just her profession, but her passion. After she passed, my grandmother said, our relatives in Scotland held onto the scissors for her. My great-grandmother, my grandmother, my mother, and now I have all loved to sew. The fact that I was holding these scissors in my hand…it felt like I was continuing Gran’s legacy. It was a rite of passage. Sewing is in my blood; these scissors represent that.
And I used them to sew my fucking Nyan Neko Sugar Girls cosplay.

gey-meme said: hello. :D but yes, i see you have been tagging lgbt+ stuff with gsrm? i would like to kindly point out that that is actually pretty problematic, as gross men used it to include pedophilia, kinks, and even rapists, the man who actually coined the acronym was a pedophile. a better acronym would be "mogii" it stands for "marginalized orientations, gender identity, and intersex". have a nice day!
THIS IS NOT TRUE.
The term ‘sexual minorities’ was coined by Lars Ullerstam in his essay “The Erotic Minorities: A Swedish View”. This book DID include sexual deviants, including pedophiles, ‘kinksters’ and sexual abusers in its definition of sexual minorities. He did NOT, however, coin the term GSRM, in which the term ‘sexual minorities’ has been reclaimed and redefined by the queer community.
To add to the debate: unlike sexual orientations like hetero-, homo-, bi-, pan-, etc., pedophilia is still defined as a psychiatric disorder and only accurately describes a person’s preference for a certain age group. Simply put: it doesn’t belong in the same category as sexual minorities any more than any other sexual deviancy, such as bestiality, would. Let’s not allow pedophilia activists gain any more ground by letting them shoehorn into other people’s spaces, yeah?
