Adams, Eve (1891-1943) - a personal friend of EG’s. Born Eve Kotchever, she and her partner Ruth Norlander sold Mother Earth, The Masses, and other radical papers around the U.S.; later they ran a gay-friendly anarchist café in Chicago called The Gray Cottage, where “the ideology of libertarian socialism was foregrounded” (Kissack 175). Later she moved to New York City and opened “a lesbian speakeasy and tea room in 1925 called Eve’s Hangout” (Wallace). Convicted of possessing obscene material (including her own collection of short stories entitled Lesbian Love), she was sentenced to a year in a workhouse, then deported in 1926; she died in Auschwitz.

No, I can’t

I can’t with people trying to appropriate the history of the black triangles to mean “asexual”

it’s not okay.

Who were the people who were ACTUALLY labeled with black triangles? Mentally ill, disabled people, some Rroma (others were marked with brown triangles), sex workers, and homeless people.

GO SIT IN A CORNER AND THINK ABOUT THAT. STAY THERE UNTIL SOME NON-SHITTY ASEXUAL PEOPLE COME TO COLLECT YOU. THX.

This is hilarious because a) the ace triangle isn’t black and b) there is actually a black triangle used for a sexuality, and it’s black lesbians. Go get mad at them for using it.

The hilarious thing about THIS is I linked to the fucking context, but you couldn’t be bothered to actually read shit, apparently.

How about YOU go actually learn some history about the Porrajmos (Black lesbians: DEFINITELY AFFECTED, so I’m not gonna “go get mad at them” while tumblr demisexuals and asexuals continue to justify their appropriation of the upside-down coloured triangle imagery with shit like “BUT BLACK TRIANGLES WERE USED TO MARK “ANTISOCIAL” PEOPLE THAT TOTALLY MEANS ACES RIGHT? OMG YOU CAN’T GET MAD AT US BECAUSE BLACK LESBIANS!!!1” - Black lesbians have every right to use that symbol, aces don’t, IN ANY ITERATION, and don’t give me that “but the ace triangle isn’t based on the triangles used in the Holocaust” bullshit because even the person WHO DESIGNED THEM initially said that they were and then BACKTRACKED when called on it) and stop being such a racist fuck, and I block your ass? Sounds good to me.
