*waves*

I'm a 30-something white cis/het married American Midwestern woman with dyscalculia, ADHD and anxiety. I also like to take pictures, draw, read, write, ride my bicycle and sing really, really loudly.

Now that I've introduced myself, let's get down to business: This tumblr consists mainly of posts focusing on 1980s-1990s nostalgia, social criticism, science, history, language arts, fat acceptance, LGBTQIA-friendliness, disabilities, feminism, video games, comic books, self-care tips, media criticism, silly reaction GIFs, cute pictures of all kinds of animals, arty things, commentaries on geek culture and stuff. LOTS of stuff. Viewer discretion is not particularly advised.

  • "Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

    It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

    It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

    But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it."

    i support trans headcanons, but please diversify them

    i’ve seen “wait but what if this character was a TRANS MAN like they have the same presentation and the consequences are minor but they’re TRANS” way too many times to be honest

    give me muscly dmab characters that ID as genderfluid or as trans women

    dfab trans characters who don’t bind

    trans characters don’t have to experience dysphoria, just like trans people don’t have to experience dysphoria

    give me characters who can easily afford gender affirming surgery but don’t want it

    give me nuanced trans characters who are out in some social circles and not others

    This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

    This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

    I think every writer/artist has that one story/drawing that gets completely skipped over, and they’d never say it aloud, but inside they’re like

    'fuck all y'all, that's one of the best things I've done'

    plus one story/drawing that everyone loves

    'really? that one?'

    Today’s Gender of the Day is: If you’re cis don’t make these jokes

    Just to elaborate on this submission, this is basically a summary of my actual position, but there’s more to it than that.

    Cis people making these kinds of gender jokes is at best, awkward and strange, and it makes you question what the intent behind the joke is. At worst, it’s very offensive and dehumanizing. Between those two extremes is the bottom line that it’s just not being a very cool ally to trans folk. It’s similar to straight people making gay jokes. It’s just not cool.

    And as I’ve said time and time again, if you feel strongly about gender humor, so strongly that not having gender humor would be a subtraction of enjoyment from your life, you should consider that you might not be as cis as you think you are.

    This was how the myth of Black criminality started, for the record. After the abolition of slavery, a lot of states made laws targeting Black people specifically, and then put them on chain gangs to get free labor from them.

    Oh, and the US is still disproportionately incarcerating Black people and private prisons are making huge amounts off them.

    Yeah, I believe that black people are twice as likely to be arrested and convicted for committing the same crimes as a white person. Draw your own conclusions.
