I'm officially rebooting my tumblr to force it into becoming a total thing. I'm not internet savvy so pardon my lack of abbreviations. I am a singer as tacky as I know it sounds, I'm not a singer by trade or profession but by birth and mostly by a lack of passion for anything else. I'm a 20-something with an apartment, a fiancée, a Saint Bernard and two bunnies.
I think it’s irresponsible and inaccurate to “grade” someone’s sexuality, which is by nature an inherently fluid and unfixed thing (even the notion of a ~sexuality~ is a function of this heteronormative need to say that something is ONE thing, yknow?), through assessments of their sexual history and past experiences. It leaves no room to accommodate for the changes in identification and self-understanding that inevitably occur as one ages and discovers different “versions” of themself, and has more experiences that may counter what contributes to their prior Kinsey scale classification. Mostly, I reject and renounce anything that seeks to qualify and quantify identity; not only is it out of touch with how queer (esp bi or pan identifying individuals) people live their lives, but from a political standpoint (which is, I would argue, is ESSENTIAL) it is puts us at a standstill- it gives us no identity from which to make claims, no community within which to organize, and no sense of uniqueness or groupness or belonging upon which we can be recognized. I find the whole concept of a scale, or anything else to “measure” sexuality, unhelpful and inaccurate.
