@AvrisIT on Twitter: the world would be so beautiful if the “i'm not an expert, but…” folks just shut up and let the experts talk. just this week i saw: a translator schooled about the language, a programmer about software engineering, and the gay community about discrimination. just. shut. up.

I used to think that the biggest advantage of the Internet compared to the old-fashioned media is that the communication doesn't just go one way. It's not just a few people broadcasting to everyone, but instead it's everyone having an equal voice.

But having spent years on the Internet has taught me something more: most of those “equal voices” are stupid and spiteful. And that's I don't have to listen to all of them.

There's plenty of reasons to love Daði Freyr's song (and my personal favourite for the 2020 Eurovision win) ”Think About Things”. But the most important reason is this: Daði is singing about treating his child like a human being. And that's why the song brings me to tears.

Having lived in three different countries and interacted with people from all around the world made me realise that Polish names have some pretty unique quirks – to which, as a native speaker, I didn't give too much thought, while foreigners find them quite strange.

For me, gender is over.

Not in a sad, “Game Over” way.

In a happy, “Mission accomplished” way.

If I had to chose only one song that I would be allowed to listen to for the rest of my life, I would be brokenhearted about all the wonderful music I would lose, but I wouldn’t hesitate for a second about which track I’d choose.

@UrFavGay_ on Twitter: Pansexuality is gay

My bio says I’m “pan/gay”, which might seem pretty self-contradictory, right? It’s one or the other, right?

Well, here’s why:

I think we should see other people... No, I’m not breaking up with you, quite the opposite.

Seeing other people might be beneficial for a relationship. How? Well, let me introduce you to the concepts of “NRE” and “compersion”.

So it turns out, coming out is still something that I have to do sometimes 🙄. Surprisingly, though, it’s the other way around now. That’s a brand new experience to me 😅 So here it goes:

I just had a chance to watch a prerelease showing of “Blinded by the Light”.

I started crying during one of the first scenes and I couldn’t stop till the end.

@PoddanyKorony on Twitter:

It might be obvious for most people, (you know, those who know the meaning of words), but apparently, judging from the tweet above and the answers to it, (where Polish right-wingers show WNBR as an example of how the LGBTQ community has “deprived” the West), some people still confuse naturism with exhibitionism and they think that it’s gay...

Well, here’s why it’s neither of those things:

@PoddanyKorony on Twitter:

Być może dla wielu jest to oczywiste, (dla tych, którzy znają znaczenia słów), ale sądząc po tweetach z prawej strony, niektórzy mieszają naturyzm z ekshibicjonizmem, i myślą, że WNBR to przykład tego jak społeczność LGBTQ seksualnie deprawuje Zachód...

Well, naturyzm nie jest ani ekshibicjonizmem, ani domeną homoseksualistów, a oto dlaczego:

It was definitelly the craziest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life – and I enjoyed every single second of it!

Berlin squat eviction

I need to rant.

I’ve had enough of Germany. I know, I know, it’s given me opportunities that I could never expect in my homeland of Poland, I’ve spent amazing three years here, I married the love of my life here... But now it’s not time for good stuff. Now it’s time for a complaint.

Here’s (some of) the reasons why I want to move out from this country.

W języku niemieckim są dwa słowa na to, co po polsku nazywa się po prostu “zazdrością”. I bardzo słusznie, bo to dwie zupełnie różne rzeczy. Kiedy widzisz, że ktoś ma coś zajebistego, i pragniesz również to mieć, to po niemiecku powiesz “ich beneide dich” = “zazdroszczę ci tego”. Kiedy natomiast chcesz mieć kogoś tylko dla siebie, mówisz: “ich bin eifersüchtig” = “jestem o kogoś zazdrosny”.

A zatem na pytanie, czy jestem zazdrosny, musiałbym odpowiedzieć: neidisch – tak, eifersüchtig – raczej nie.

Esperanto flag

I don’t really like Esperanto. As a language. As an idea I love it from all my heart! ❤️ That message of unity, peace and understanding though a common language! That brilliance of simplification and unification!

But I’ve always seen it advertised as “extremely simple”. Simple indeed, but extremely? You can certainly do better!

Being gay is not easy. Depending on where you live, it might mean different things to you. Best case scenario – some minor inconveniences. Worst case – even danger of death. LGBTQ youth has a higher suicide rate than their straight & cis friends, they fear getting disowned by their families, thrown out of their homes, in some countries being sentenced to prison or lashes... We don’t have equal rights, we can’t always show affection in public. Being gay can be scary, lonely and awful.

But there is also a good side to that. The side of being gay that I really really love!

Nationalism: my country is better than yours because I was born in it.

Ktoś mnie ostatnio próbował przekonać, za pomocą słów jakiejś wojskowej przysięgi, że syryjscy mężczyźni powinni zostać w kraju i walczyć za ojczyznę. Niestety, jako pacyfista mam totalnie w dupie wojskowe przysięgi, jako feminista nie godzę się, by przedstawicieli jednej płci traktować gorzej niż innej, a jako liberał nie zamierzam mówić nikomu, co ma robić ze swoim życiem. Także mnie nie przekonał...

Dawno temu pisałem tego bloga anonimowo i pod innym adresem. Nie byłem wtedy wyoutowany (ani jako gej, ani jako ateista), natomiast byłem całkowicie zależny od rodziców. Czyjś zbyt długi język mógł mi naprawdę nieprzyjemnie namieszać w życiu.
