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