what if there was a show where every character was gay and you had the token straight guy character who acted really stereotypical and was into cars beers and women and everyone was like OH STRAIGHT LARRY YOU’RE SO FUNNY AND STRAIGHT
#sounds like ace attorney from certain fanfics
DUDE FORGET FANFICS IT’S THIS WAY IN CANON TOO.
LARRY IS THE ZANY STRAIGHT FRIEND, THINK ABOUT IT. he like, always has these short term girlfriends and is always falling in “true love” with a babe of the moment and there are lots of jokes at his expense about his ~wacky lovelife~ when pretty much every main/core character is portrayed as (generallY) more respectable and also implied to be gay. wowie. bless
maaan, one of the places skitty and i are thinking of moving to for college and job purposes is boston, but if we moved to boston i’d have to learn how to spell massachusetsmassichusetsmasschewingmaspablooping Massachusetts
Do you ever think about how tv shows and films have no trouble portraying gay men as intrinsically effeminate? But then when a story is about lesbians, all of a sudden it’s really important to break down barriers, and show lesbian girls that “you don’t need to look butch to be a lesbian!”, and suddenly every single lesbian you see is femme as fuck.
I’m not saying that it has anything to do with femme lesbians being more appealing to the male gaze, and I certainly don’t want to point out how fucked up it is that even stories about lesbians are catered towards heterosexual men with a fetish…
“One really pernicious aspect of pop theories of gender (e.g. queer theory) is how they rotate the gender hierarchy to appear horizontal. With this rhetorical/pictorial sleight of hand, the oppressive power relation between men and women is not depicted as a hierarchy but rather as a neutral flat line, a ‘spectrum’, as if gender is just a ‘level playing field’ and not at all the imposed roles of oppressor and oppressed.”—Depoliticizing Gender by RANCOM! (Posted on June 29, 2011)
“And some women do call themselves “humanist” while claiming they are working for a more equitable society. The big problem with that, though, is that no group is identified as disadvantaged. There is no pattern of racism, there is no pattern of sexism, it’s just one unfortunate individual after another experiencing some random bit of misfortune. The “humanists” are simply too wishy-washy to identify the aggressor or his pattern of aggression, which renders them unable to stop the pattern of aggression committed by a repeat offender, but that title does allow “humanists” to feel good about themselves in spite of their worthlessness.”—
do u guys understand how creepy the pledge of allegiance is though like every day when ur a kid everybody just chants how great america is every morning it’s creepy
after i found out you’re not legally obligated to say the pledge at school i stopped saying it and was repeatedly sent to the principal’s office for it but after the first or second time they’d just tell me to go back to class
girl fact #285: makeup gives us super human strength. if you see a girl with perfect winged eyeliner and red lipstick, approach with caution. she’s got the power to slay her enemies with one look and use their blood as blush.
girl fact #286: makeup is a tool used to line the pockets of white men by promoting misogynist and racialized beauty standards as the only way to achieve success in this hellhole of a world. you’re a fucking idiot because you know what you need in order to ‘slay your enemies with one look and use their blood as blush’? hint: it’s not fucking eyeliner, it’s actual goddamn power. which men have and we don’t.
Yeh, it was just one level in a fairly big game, but it used assets from Space Funeral and Eversion and... Ib, I think? A random wizard npc quotes the "my house got internal bleeding again!" line at the end of the level. If you want to look it up, there's a lp on youtube, search "asmbxt 32" and you should find it.
I think all that has to do more with transsexual acceptance and understanding than trying to undermine lesbian attraction. People say the same exact thing with ftm transexuals on tumblr as well. I'm asexual and genderqueer and while I do agree that society needs to stop assuming everything revolves around their penises, I don't think slogans for transsexual relationships is an example of it.
People say it with a lot less frequency when it comes to ftms though. In queer circles it’s generally bitterly accepted that it’s a sad fact of life that gay men are generally not interested in ftms. Maybe occasionally there’s some anger at not being allowed into gay bars and some personal sad posts by rejected ftms. It doesn’t often go much further than that.
However, when it’s about lesbians not being interested in mtfs, then the enraged threats of rape and physical violence come out. The cotton ceiling workshops sprout up. The smear campaigns bloom. Queer allies are rallied up to harass and send threats of violence to lesbians. Having been both a liberal feminist in the past and a lesbian feminist in the present and having seen both sides, I can say with certainty that lesbians are MUCH more likely to be told their sexuality is bigoted than gay men.
I’ve never seen faab genderqueers or ftms or allies on their behalf threaten to murder or rape gay men for not being attracted to them, or threaten to cut off their genitals and barbecue them (sadly I am referencing a real post with the barbecue thing, I only wish I was making this up). I have seen this kind of talk from mtfs and allies on the behalf of mtfs and maab genderqueers plenty, though, and it’s always either ignored by allies, excused as a legitimate reaction to cissexism/rejection, or the person bringing it up is accused of fabricating it even when there’s plenty of ‘receipts’ so to speak.
uuugh i'm a homosexual lady specifically because i don't like penis and all this erasure crap makes me feel so bad about myself like "you have no right to call yourself a lesbian if you don't like someone who identifies as a woman just because they have a dong between their legs" how should i even defend myself when someone says something like that??
you can’t really argue with these people because they will always pull some emotionally manipulative bs to try and make you feel wrong for your same sex attraction (sound familiar? HMM). all you can really do is tell them that anti gay conversion therapy doesn’t work and it’s really none of their business who you’re attracted to
Have you seen that post going around that is a comic of a gay man who dated/s someone who was transgender, and underwent hormone treatment, but they still have penis-vagina sex and says he's still very much completely gay? What would be your opinion on that? I honestly am not sure what I think of it, and with your recent posts, it made me think of it.
No, I haven’t, but PIV is objectively the least homosexual thing in the world.
Sighhhh people seems to forget that not everyone likes penises, even if they are on a woman. I'm a mtf who is gay but I understand if someone do not wish to date me because of my genitals. It makes me sad but I do not like penises too so I understand. I do not want anyone to feel guilty because they don't like them.
Yeah… despite their banter about being your own person and liking whatever you like, the queer community has reached around and become very rigid and controlling about what people are allowed to like. Very much the opposite of the image they want for themselves. :|
Sorry to hear about your dysphoria. Best of luck coping with it, I know it’s not an easy thing to deal with.
can queer theorists just fucking STOP TRYING TO DEFINE OTHER PEOPLES’ SEXUALITIES FOR A SECOND, YOU ERASING FUCKWITS. NOT ALL OF US HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING ABLE TO PRETEND WE LIVE IN A MAGIC POST MODERN PRETEND WORLD WHERE ~WORDS CAN MEAN ANYTHING YOU WANT, MAAAN~
i cant believe a large group of adult men rigged a survey to vote for the best animated kids show of 2013 by creating scripts that automatically vote for my little pony a million times i feel like were living in a bizarro alternate universe of the real true timeline where bronies are fairytale creatures that only exist in legends
It’s weird that I’m a hairless, talking ape with custom crystals suspended in front of my eyes so I can see, and I live with a tiny panther who just accepts me as a part of the world around him and attempts to interact with me despite the fact that he doesn’t understand my language and I don’t understand his
is it possible for you to still drop the class w/ the hidden component? if it's a part of your degree program, most schools won't count anything below a 74 as credits counting for your degree, even though it's still technically passing, and you'd have to retake it. it's better to drop a class and lose the money than fail or almost fail it and have it devour your GPA.
nah it’s way past the drop date, there’s like less than two weeks left in the semester
