listen, your tv show/manga/anime/movie/book isn’t feminist unless it is explicitly beyond a shadow of a doubt feminist
a piece of media showing not-shitty female characters or any semblance of feminist ideals isn’t an indicator of a feminist creation, it’s just an indicator of the slight shift in social perceptions.
I was SHOCKED at how unfeminist that movie was after I saw how much people on tumblr were gushing over it. It’s a great monster movie, but trash if you want something feminist. One female character who knows how to fight does not a feminist film make.
Hello there. The following is an incomplete list of Domestic Violence shelters for Queer and Trans* People of Color in all 50 United States. This list will also contain reading resources with tools for addressing abuse and domestic violence in queer communities.
Signal boosting this project that March of Tigers is leading. I won’t reblog the whole list because (luckily) it’s huge but do click through the link and check it out. Also, support March of Tigers by either further helping spread awareness of this resource or by contributing with further data.
For about three months this year I lived with a roommate. Neither of us is religious, and one day we were talking about the tradition of saying “God bless you” when someone sneezes. It doesn’t really bother me when someone says this to me because I believe for so many people it is automatic and they don’t mean “MAY YOUR HEATHEN SOUL NOT ESCAPE INTO THE AIR FOR I FEAR BREATHING IT IN AND ABSORBING YOUR EVIL WAYS.” I tend to not say it when other people sneeze, because it feels silly and hypocritical when I do it but it also feels weird to not say anything since it’s so normal to comment when someone sneezes. I like the idea of an agreed-upon alternative among friends. Sometimes we go with “Fuck you”, and it’s hilarious when you sneeze and your roommate says “Fuck you, Katy.”
I like this so much. I feel strange saying bless you to strangers, as an atheist. At the same time, if random people don’t fucking bless me, I think that’s super rude (as an almost-southern person and an occasionally polite individual).
I usually mock my dogs when they sneeze by sneezing back at them. Maybe I should start doing that for people.
and today my girlfriend said that she gets offended when people don’t bless her and thinks “THAT’S MY FUCKING SOUL”
Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality.
It is just…so fucking weird how threatened people feel when it comes to Asexuality. I still can’t wrap my mind around it.
I’m so happy this post is being reblogged by LBGT+ people who aren’t asexual. I keep on reading posts by non-ace LGBT+ people of support to the ace community, and of being stunned by this reaction by a movement which should know better than to judge. AND THAT MAKES THIS ACE SO FREAKING HAPPY. The woman in the first photo expresses my sentiment. I know I belong in the queer/LGBTQIA movement. I want to belong. But I just don’t know if I’m welcome. I’m so happy that there are so many people on Tumblr who do not fall into the catagory of outright refusal of asexuality.
I know not a lot of people understand asexuality. And I know there’s confusion about it, about our experiences, and about how we fit in the movement. But let’s talk about this. Let’s have this conversation.
I mostly don’t delve into the ace tags, but I hear there’s a lot of ace-hate that and I really don’t get it. I don’t understand how asexuality is threatening.
You know what I (as a queer ace-spectrum person) find most threatening? Getting unwanted sexual unwanted advances from both queer and straight people. I’ve gotten them from people of all spectrums and it always makes me profoundly uncomfortable, and often unsafe. It just boggles my mind how people are upset by the concept of asexuality. That’s like getting really mad at someone who isn’t hungry. What’s the point? Just shut up eat your own sandwich. (And stop chewing on me.)
It baffles me that this is, like, an actual issue or something, for people who aren’t asexuals. And what is so difficult to understand about it? What the hell? What is the problem?????
It baffles me that ANYONE’S sexuality is an issue for anyone else.
