people saying it’s not realistic to have entire friend groups of queer kids in films or TV shows because ‘that never happens’ and instead they just have straight kids and one gay person like…… my friend group in school was made up of a trans boy, an asexual, and three bisexuals…….. like………… we exist
all i know is that when you come back from ramapo you have like 4 new tags and i gotta go and learn about all these new wonderful ppl from your posts
oh hey fair point also worth mentioning that they’re on my Cast & Crew now
But for easy reference:
I had a tetrad(? ongoing foursome?!) called the Lifeboat, which consisted of myself and:
The King of Bad Decisions. Ramapo returner. Young, brilliantly stupid, history buff, risk-taker. We kind of dragged him into poly haha whoops
The Man with the Ember Heart. Another returner. Openly poly. He spins fire, has dual citizenship in England, and kind of un/intentionally ships lots of illicit things around the world sometimes.
The Girl with the Waterfall Laugh. Also young as fuck oops. Not sure how she feels about poly in that “Oh yeah I’m down. *is ragingly jealous/insecure about it while drunk” way. New Ramapo-er, recruited by Ember, who goes to school with her. Reminds me a lot of me when I was just out of my freshman year.
Then, for the last week of camp, everyone else mostly had left (since there are less kids that week and it’s optional to stay or not). I found myself sleeping with the Nomadic Carpenter, a new Ramapo coworker who is unique in that 1) he is much older than most of us and 2) he is the father of one of the campers. He’s an artist, craftsman, and a wanderer and also in an open relationship with someone completely removed from camp life.
do not sexualize young girls. yes, I am kink shaming you. because you should be ashamed of yourself for sexualizing young girls, and no one’s sexual liberation is more important than protecting young girls.
I have a lot of time to reflect on the summer right now and that is good but it also leads to remembering weird-ass things like
on the last night a bunch of us played never-have-I-ever around a campfire and someone said “never have I ever had a foursome” and I cursed them out (in good fun) for targeting me specifically and nobody reacted in surprise.
