I'm a CSE major at UCSD, spend most of my time coding and sleeping. I like to write and read in my free time, and am trying to figure out a social life at school. I'm bisexual, polyamorous, and very verbal about social justice. Feel free to use any OC on here however you wish, but please notify me beforehand.

i just asked this dude out and he’s hella uncomfortable with the idea of me also dating arjun and he’s getting so serious about it it’s like i asked to get married im laughing this one of the weirdest experiences i’ve ever had

It is not a good idea to date monogamous people. It may seem like a good idea, but it is not.

Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

I think what is important to remember here is that the Dark Ages ONLY HAPPENED IN EUROPE. During this time period the rest of the world was doing as well or far better than they had been doing. Stop thinking of the world in terms of pre, during, and post Dark Ages because white people tell you that that is history so they don’t look so goddamn awful.

1858. Because of Lena’s acting when Joffrey died.

Okay I want to talk about this for a second, because while I’m not here to disparage the submitter or OP, I do think this scene needs to be talked about. Cersei’s whole life is built around her children, especially Joffrey, and in the books her grief is apparent immediately, even from Tyrion’s perspective. But all I saw from Lena was rage, part of what was critical to the scene, but not the core of it. Honestly I was really disappointed with the way the scene was done, and wish it had been more powerful. I expected to hurt on Cersei’s behalf, but all we saw was more of her malice.

If a trans/nonbinary person tells you something is transphobic… IT’S TRANSPHOBIC.

So this happened on facebook today….

BOOM

i remember being really annoyed when a guy was like “um, you’re too wet and it doesn’t feel tight anymore” like umm i’m wet because i’m aroused and that is how it is supposed to be? do you want me to not be aroused??

?????

Noo transphobia doe

But also hella ableism because not all vaginas work the same way???? Like, stop making sweeping generalizations like this because I know for sure that you’re going to be saying awful shit.

How is this transphobic in any kinda way??? And how is this ableism when talking about a common misconstion. That’s like talking about how legs work and you say it’s ableism because I’m not including every little thing that can make legs work differently than usual.

Nah, generalizing about how legs work is ableism too. People’s bodies are different, by birth or injury or what have you, and some of those differences make life considerably harder. Layering constant reminders of how ones body is different, and erasing those differences, on top of an already physically difficult reality is an unnecessary cruelty. It’s transphobic because the claim is that vaginas are female. 

At the end of the day, two well educated people just told you that this post is problematic, your objections are bullshit, and I don’t understand why you’re more dedicated to silencing social justice than you are to combating oppression.

Impulse - $6.99

Buy me all of them

I’ve seen this on my dash at least six times this week, so, friends: don’t buy from Impulse Cosmetics. They are known for stealing other company’s photographs and passing them off as their own product. They also appear to use neon pigments in their eyeshadows, which are not FDA approved and may not be eye-safe. 

Frankly, Impulse photoshops the shit out of their product swatches. Check out how pitiful Lobotomy really looks when compared a similar color produced by another, better respected indie company. It looks nothing like Impulse’s photo. It’s not matte, it’s not true to color—it’s not even opaque. Pretty Zombie Cosmetics, Morgana Cryptoria, Limnit Lipsticks, and Performance Colors are indie companies that all have amazing colors and practice good business.

If someone has told you that a particular word hurts them and perpetuates oppression on them and people like them, what can you possibly have to gain from continuing to use that word casually? Like why do you need it. Why do you need to say shem*le or tr*nny or n****** or any other words like that. Like forget over sensitivity and forget concepts of political correctness and forget the idea of reclaiming slurs (because they’re not yours to reclaim if they don’t refer to you) and just fucking think about what you want from this situation. What do you get from using these words.

snarkbender:

see also: there are literally thousands of words in English that you will never use over the course of your lifetime. adding a couple more to that pile will not affect you in the slightest.


The modern idea of PC is really helping oppressors stay comfortable with using slurs like “Idk what’s PC so I’m still gonna say n*****” and that way wealthy white people never have to question if they’re right or not. PC is dead, time to just not use slurs, super simple.

Before I had tumblr I had no idea there were any sexualities other than heterosexual and homosexual. I never considered gender inequalities still existed.

That doesn’t mean I was purposely trying to discriminate or upset people.

There is a difference between being just ignorant of something and purposefully discriminating.

Give someone a chance to learn and be enlightened before you slam them as rude, horrible people

god bless

No but also there is serious merit to not tolerating ignorance any more than intentional discrimination. Whether you intend to or not, you are hurting people, and contributing to a system that hurts people. Furthermore, it is not our job as oppressors to tell the oppressed how they can and cannot express themselves, and it is very important that we remember that. The voices of the people we hurt, whether we intend to hurt them or not, are incredibly important. Whether or not you feel hurt by the way those people choose to express themselves, YOU HURT THEM FIRST. Remember that, next time someone yells at you over the internet, or next time you read a social justice post that offends you. Our job as people of privilege is to shut up, listen, and swallow our pride long enough to truly hear what is being said and start changing to fix it. Otherwise our ignorance turns into malice, and we are just as bad as the people we think we’re better than.
