i’ve stopped trash talking comic sans after learning the font is actually one of the only dyslexia-friendly fonts that come standard with most computers and i advocate for others doing the same
my hairs doing a weird flippy thing
I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE
i lost a follower for supporting education before persecution
you know theres a lot of people on the internet who hate on groups like otherkin and its like? why do you do that man. like i get that some otherkin will act aggressively but thats probably because theyre constantly having their identity denied by people who dont understand them…
its ok to not understand things but if youre going to hate a group on the basis that you dont understand them then thats not okay.
stop trying to say “this is how I think your identity works, even though i have no idea since i dont have that identity, and youre not allowed to identify that way”
stop hating otherkin just because you dont understand them
i don’t think i’ve ever set aside time to mourn for my adolescence haha
Melissa May - “Dear Ursula” (WoWPS 2014)
"You, big lady, were the only Disney character who ever looked like me. And while you may not have had the waist line of a princess, I’ll be goddamned if you didn’t have the swagger of a queen."
Performing during prelims at the 2014 Women of the World Poetry Slam. Melissa placed 7th overall in the tournament.
This is perfect.
okay i’m having some trouble organizing my thoughts on this but basically: i advocate for the end of gender as a system. i believe the best way to do that is to destroy masculinity and manhood because manhood is the position within gender that is granted more social power. if we destroy masculinity and gender along with it, femininity will also be destroyed b/c gender will have been eradicated
woman is an exploited class under patriarchy. man is an exploiter class. the society we are struggling for would have people whose physicalities we might think of as “male” or “female”, along with others we wouldn’t have ways of talking about. there would almost certainly be people who would have things about them redolent of men and women in the Old World - a tenderness of voice, a scrutinizing eye, a tendency to spread one’s legs on public transit. but they would no longer have the weight of history pressing against them.
this post-sex/gender society is the end product of a struggle by the exploited against their exploitation. this struggle takes place against the backdrop of heteropatriarchy, and its participants exist in heteropatriarchy.
the oppressor class has nothing to offer this struggle; the oppressed class lives it and in a sense cannot escape it.
i am a woman because women not existing is not yet a possibility. if i should be a man under the same logic, i would be part of why it was not yet a possibility. it could only be hypocritical to yearn for a world without men but participate in the construction of male power with my words and actions, in a way it cannot really be called hypocritical to yearn for a world without women
OKAY, I’M REALLY PISSED OFF
DID YOU ALL KNOW THAT GIRLS BODIES ARE SUPPOSED TO STORE MORE FAT THE BOYS BODIES?
AND YET, IT’S MORE ACCEPTABLE FOR A BOY TO ‘BE BIG’ THEN IT IS FOR A GIRL TO ‘BE FAT’
WE ARE STIGMATIZED FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY BIOLOGICAL
