"you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.
pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company
meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names

What if we trained English teachers in Linguistics and taught them how language actually works instead of how a bunch of white men in Victorian England thought it should work? And then our English teachers could teach kids that their dialects are important and valid, but that it is also important to learn how to write and speak “standard English” to be able to navigate certain parts of society and be respected there. Wouldn’t that be way better than bringing them into class and saying “You’re wrong and your entire culture is wrong. Speak like this.”
