Monument to the Children of Nicholas II Near Ekaterinburg
A mounment to the children of Tsar Nicholas II was unveiled in 2011 on the grounds of the Ganina Yama monastery complex, where the remains of the last Russian Imperial family were found murdered by the Bolsheviks in 1918. The consecration of the monument falls on the birthday of the Grand Duchess Olga Nicholayevna, who was born in 1895 [3 November Old Style).
The monument was consecrated by the Metropolitan Vincent of Tashkent and the Uzbek, who previously served as the Metropolitan of Ekaterinburg. He noted that the idea of creating a memorial to the children of Nicholas II came to him just weeks before he was transferred to a new place of ministry. The statue created by sculptor, Igor Akimov, said that his work was created based on photographs and portraits of the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and the Tsarevich Alexei.
The height of the monument, “Royal Children” - stands nearly 3 meters, its weight - 2 tons. According to the sculptor of the monument, the children of Nicholas II descend from heaven on the inclined stone plinth, with crosses in their hands. They are huddled together and looking cautiously around. The expression on their innocent faces relates the fear they must have endured at the hands of their murderers.

Young ● Queer ● Mom? Teen parenthood is not just a straight problem. Many LGBT Youth have unprotected “straight” sex too. Find out how you can protect yourself and your friends from HIV, STDs, and unplanned parenthood today.
Comments & Caveats:
While it is true that some people engage in — frequently hypersexual - heterosexual behaviors in an attempt to convince others (and themselves)
that they are heterosexual, many do it becasue they are in fact Bisexual
, the “B” in LGBT.
Remember that: Bisexuality =/= “in the closet”
or “on the down low”
. Instead Bisexuals = people who can ♥ people of SAME Gender as themselves + can ♥ people of DIFFERENT Genders/Gender Presentations from themselves
Remember that male
and otherwise identified Bisexual people actually exist
. That Bisexual people are the largest portion
of the LGBT Community. That most people (not all but most)
who Say they are Bisexual do so because they Are Bisexual. But that like everyone else Bisexual People, (especially Bi Youth)
are susceptible to arm twisting by authority figures.
So Don’t Be That Person
who — becasue of Your Own issues/non-acceptance — teases, torments, redefines, lectures, bullies and coerces a Bisexual Person back into the Closet (as straight/hetrosexual)
or the “2nd Closet” (as gay/lesbian)

Best scene from the teen titans. Period.
here’s a thing: don’t police how anyone trans* or intersex views or interacts with their gender!!! even if you are trans* or intersex yourself!!
everyone has the right to feel safe and comfortable and if they are proud of the fact that they are not cis that doesn’t invalidate if you would rather be treated as cis?? because no one is the Sole Representative of Not Being Cis and everyone should be allowed to find a way to feel comfortable with their own gender!!

It doesn’t matter what fandom you’re in.
That shit’s devotion and deserves respect.
