yes, please find a way to communicate those feelings respectfully, people with mental illnesses deal with a ton of shit and it adds to our suffering when you make that suffering the punchline of a joke. please don’t.
anxiety and depression aren’t cute or endearing stop romanticizing them they’re horrible afflictions that tear you away from people you love and can ruin your life so stop with the “lol i’m so awkward and depressed uwu” bc you walked into a door or you feel sad sometimes it’s not cute and you’re totally debasing the difficulties we face every day
being a feminist means changing your behaviour to better support women, not re-labelling everything you do already as ~an empowering statement~
I s2g I get off Tumblr for like 24 hours and come back to a WOC being compared to an Oompaloompa, ugh this is the worst website
agh that language makes me squirm
I just, WOC are compared to animals all the time? like this is the way my redneck extended family talks about WOC sometimes, and it’s never my place to criticize a POC, but seeing a WOC compared to a flea- and disease-ridden rat just
it just leaves an incredibly gross feeling and as a white person I feel complicit in that sentiment, in comparing WOC to animals, if I don’t vocalize that I object?
I’m just very unsure of how to navigate here and in future similar situations because I don’t want to exercise my white privilege like an asshole but I am uncomfortable being silent while WOC are called rats
If putting naked pictures of your ex on the web for other men to pleasure themselves to is “revenge,” what does that say about pornography in general?
"Hence they have completely misinterpreted my research."
Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a good day for I had two vegan muffins when I was suppose to have one. They were delicious and some crumbs even got on my keyboard (oh no). Anyway I am not here to tell you about my muffin eating adventures (hehee) but something that has been on my mind for some time.
Non-fluid lesbians are real because I am a non-fluid lesbian. Fluid lesbians are real because I know two and one of them made me some yummy vegan muffins (full circle).
We both can exist, how you may ask? Well for me anyway it is about perspective, labels and sexytime with people. I personally don’t take the word “lesbian” seriously because of the fluidity talk, OMFG right? Not really, it is just *I* feel that most labels really should be taken with a grain of salt and I rather tell people my sexual preference/orientation is often with beautiful women pointing south (sometimes north if I am frisky) EXCLUSIVELY, not “lesbian”. I use lesbian/gay/queer as a political term for sexual politics and equality.
A lesbian who sleeps with men often or once in a while might confuse me for a bit BUT it does not stop me from only wanting sexual/romantic relationships with women (this list includes trans women/cis women/cis-gender women/oh-girl-I-like-your-top women).
Yes it’s annoying when people conflate identities but you live with it because we all want to be seen as equals to straight people. Also what most I-will-never-be-attracted-to-men lesbians I find are really annoyed about when it comes to the whole sexuality is fluid is that unfortunately gets conflated with hetero-sexist and sexist rhetoric like, “Oh you just need to find the right man.” So to them sexual fluidity sounds like, “sexuality is fluid=you will find someone of the opposite sex attractive and therefore non-fluid does not exists, you’re in DENIAL!!! (evil cackle)”
Non-fluid lesbians just need to be more secure about their identities and just kindly remind that “you go glen coco on being fluid but it does not apply to me!”
In conclusion fluid lesbians/gays/bis/etc. exist and non-fluid lesbians/gays/bis/etc. exist too. NOW CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG LIKE WE USE TO IN MIDDLE SCHOOL? I JUST WANT EVERYBODY TO BE HAPPY DAMMIT!
Ugh I ran out of yummy vegan muffins
"A lesbian who sleeps with men often or once in a while"
wtf am i reading
So here’s a person (Bra, the commentet) who is agreeing with Boehner et al that…there is no way to define being gay or lesbian? Lisa Diamond was pointing out that these homophobic douchebags were twisting her work so they could defend DOMA…and now a lesbian is agreeing with them that lesbians (and gay men, by the way) don’t exist?
Yeah, I’m with that gif up there.
"lesbians just need to be more cool with non-lesbians appropriating their identity and sexuality and culture" lol
also like what is with the baby talk thing, the lesbian erasure is bad enough, but now I also can’t decide whether or not I should feel condescended to and it makes this post 10x more annoying
here’s the thing:
- respect sex workers, but
- do not defend the porn industry
friendly reminder that
- your orgasm isn’t more important than women’s safety
- your kinks aren’t above criticism
- sexual proclivities don’t exist in a vacuum away from social influence
- if you think otherwise you’re probably a misogynist
"guess since im a white man im not allowed to have opinions"
your opinions have shaped the world we live in today not being catered to for 83.9 seconds will not fuckin kill you
