Storyboard Text

  • Have you ever thought about the privileges that we have that our friend in the LGBT community don't?
  • We don't have to worry about facing harassment in the bathroom.
  • We don't have to be questioned for what we post on social media. 
  • INSTAGRAM NOTIFICATION 
  • jsmith1234: Hey, why are you dressing like a boy? You're clearly a girl. 
  • We can openly express our relationship without fear for our safety. 
  • I love you so much! 
  • We don't have to worry about being discriminated against in a court case. 
  • Your Honor, if SHE  didn't pretend to be a man maybe then she wouldn't have had this happen.
  • These are things that I don't think about every day. That's even a part of my privilege. The norms are in society because they punish anything that "stands for non-reproductive sexual activity" (Mulvilhill). We grew up not knowing that being cisgender wasn't the only thing that existed because "sex education is very heteronormative and doesn’t address the needs of LGBTQ young people" (Kravitz).  We need to acknowledge our privileges and be allies to those who who are a part of the LGBTQ+ to make the world "safer and more welcoming for everyone" (Bongiovanni).
