"Have you ever kissed a boy?"
Lacy looked up from her 17 Magazine. It was the issue from the month before that Drew had hand-me-downed to her, but she didn’t care. “No, but I think I’d like to.” She gazed down at a glossy picture of the hottest celebrity guy of that month. “Why?” She looked up at her friend Adriana, who was sitting on the other end of the bed.
"Because Mark asked me to be his girlfriend, but that just means he wants to french kiss," this was common knowledge. Mark kissed girls and then moved on, a real seventh grade player. "And I kind of want to say yes just to try, but I’m scared I’ll be bad. I thought you might know what to do."
Lacy looked at her friend sympathetically, and tried to think up a solution. “You could practice with me.”
Adriana looked mildly horrified. “What? No! I couldn’t do that.”
"Why not? My sisters kiss girls all the time."
"Yeah, and Miranda kisses girls too and it’s okay, but it’s her girlfriend. Things are different in the Demeter cabin, we don’t just kiss people!"
Lacy was young, but she was able to notice hypocrisy in people, and bias against her cabin. She got this all the time, she didn’t want it from her friend too. ”Well, that’s what you want to do with Mark, so make up your mind! If you don’t want to kiss me than fine! Who asked you anyway?”
Adriana got quiet. “I’m sorry.” she whispered after a short pause, she could tell Lacy was upset. “Look, you’re right, what’s it matter anyway? It doesn’t mean anything.”
Lacy perked up and scooted closer to her friend. “Exactly, and trust me, my sisters do this all the time, it’s no big deal.”
Lacy was slammed up against the wall of the tool shed and pinned there. She grinned and pulled the girl who had put her there closer. She kissed her girlfriend fiercely, holding her tight by the straps of her tank top.
Lacy’s hands slid from the straps of Adriana tank top, down her waist, and began fooling around with the waistband of her cotton shorts. They had had five years of practice at this, she knew exactly what she was doing.
Unfortunately, she was unprepared for the knock on the door.
"Adriana! You went in there fifteen minutes ago! How long does it take to find a Goddamn shovel?" Her brother Josua yelled at her from the outside.
"I’m busy hang on!" She shouted back.
"You’re in a supply closet! What the hell could you possibly be doing?"
"Me!" Lacy yelled at him. Joshua went silent, and they didn’t hear from him or anyone else for the rest of the afternoon.
idk if this is really my place to say and any bisexual person(s) can come lay the smackdown on me if im out of place, seeing as i do not identify as bisexual but….
people who argue that they can pair nico up with girls and call him bisexual mostly mostly rub me the wrong way??? because it’s like… yeah are you really? really. are you really? you fought so hard for cishet!nico to pair up with reyna or thalia or your painfully transparent self-insert OC
so are you really gonna respect a bisexual nico??
are, you. really.
A response from a bisexual:
I am a bisexual woman who has only ever had serious relationships with men. It is very possible for the sexual behavior of a bisexual to sway more towards the heterosexual rather than the homosexual.
However, I will not deny having relations with a girl, having crushes on girls, and feeling attracted to girls.
That’s where the difference between me and most bisexual!Nico headcanons come in.
When people play the bi!Nico card to pair him with a girl, it isn’t “Oh I’m bisexual and now I’m dating a women, I’m still bi, I still like guys, bit right now I like this girl.” it’s “Oh my god, I never want to be with anyone ever again, you are the light of my life! Percy who? Feelings what?”
So to answer your question Radycat, from what I’ve seen, no, most people will not respect Nico. Rather they will use the label “bisexual” to squeeze him farther into their herteronormative box.
(I admire your enthusiasm)
New Rome really did have the best hot chocolate she had ever tasted. The late September air was still pretty warm, so the drink didn’t really fit the season — it felt awkward and out of place, but still enjoyable.
Speaking of things that made her slightly uncomfortable, but she still loved —
Their smal, causal date had gone well, but Annabeth was still worried she would mess something up and push Reyna away forever. So she gripped her cup tight with both hands and kept walking in time with Reyna. They weren’t saying much.
Finally, they got back to where Annabeth was rooming. While dinner and desert had been full of colorful conversation, the walk home was filled with tension.
"Well," Annabeth started, "Good—" She was cut off swiftly. Reyna quickly moved in and kissed Annabeth lightly, as if to test the waters of the relationship.
Annabeth blushed and muttered a meek ”night” to finish off her word.
"Goodnight Annabeth." Reyna said, before walking back to her room alone.
Annabeth walked into her room and shut the door behind her. When the shock settled, her competitive drive moved in. Next time, she was going to kiss first.
Reply to this with a queer shit (could be gay, lesbian, transgender, or anything really that isn’t heteronormative) and I’ll pick a few to write a short drabble about their first kiss.

HAZEL IS NOT TAN
ALL AMERICANS ARE NOT WHITE
FOR GODS SAKE SHE WENT TO A
SCHOOL FOR WITH “FOR COLORED AND INDIANS” IN THE EFFING NAME
This fandom gets shittier and shittier everyday it’s astounding
Oh how cute.
You guys call me a whore or slut, implying that I’m shameful, or ashamed of myself. I’m not. I’m perfectly happy with my life and my relationships, and they’re my business. Unless I’m sleeping with you, stay out of my affairs, because they have nothing to do with you.
And never call me or anyone else a whore or slut again. Just because a woman (cis or trans*) has slept with someone other than the person she’s married to she is not some whore of Babylon that you can just push around. Whether I’ve slept with one person or 200, I am a person, I am a woman, I am a human, and I will not be devalued, or unvalidated, because I still enjoy seeking pleasure and passion while not having time for a committed romantic relationship. I am a woman in control of her own life and will be defined by my accomplishments, not by the people I sleep with.
I also love how you think bullying a bully makes you guys a good person. Yeah, I was (and still am, although not as bad, I worked some things out) a shitty person. But the last thing you should do is turn around and be shitty back.
If people are rude, return that rudeness with well-crafted arguments, not the same loud hate speech present to you. Return hate with sincerity, honesty, and intelligence and people will be caught off guard and not know what to do. You will stand out amongst all the yelling buffoons. You attack a shitty person with even shittier things (calling somebody a whore) and you just look like more of a shitty person. Bullying a bully doesn’t make you a savior among men, it makes you a bully.
So be mindful about what you say and how you say it, because it could make a huge difference for you.
And for the love of the gods, please stop slut shaming me and my sisters, and stop characterizing us as airhead bimbos with enough MAC to last a life time. We are not your stereotype.

reblogging because apparently homophobic!Hazel has become a thing?
holy shit all these people like “hazel would be homophobic because she grew up in the 40s in a catholic area!!1!” need to stop
- hazel is openly critical of the nuns at her school and has expressed no sympathy w/ the religious beliefs around her
- hazel has had decades away from that environment
- the 30s/40s are not some kind of queerphobic hivemind what the hell
- hazel’s dealt with too much of her own shit to be unsympathetic
- being uncomfortable with pda doesn’t mean being uncomfortable with being queer
- hazel is unfailingly compassionate and very close to nico, do you really truly believe she would turn her back on him because he has a crush on percy
- if you do you’re a bag of dicks because hazel is a million times better than that
Many many people have been submitting headcanons about Hazel being homophobic. This is why I’m choosing not to post them.
