time for some Opinions
blurgh okay disclaimer that this is not a vaguepost about anyone in particular it’s just like, a general Thing that i was seeing a lot a while back that’s still REALLY FUCKIN BOTHERING ME
listen i know that people jokingly calling themselves aphobes arose from that whole aphobe block list thing and from what little i know of that it was in fact pretty ridiculous but uuuuh. seeing people describe themselves that way, even facetiously, is still! really fucking uncomfortable!!
like speaking as an asexual lesbian here, the amount of discomfort i experience from seeing that is PRETTY COMPARABLE to how i feel about those “””funny””” comments where someone acts like they’re gonna say something super homophobic then swerves at the last second, which is to say, it’s not at all funny and makes me wildly anxious
what it boils down to is that there are too many people already who genuinely think that i’m sick or broken and need to be “fixed” for people talking about hating me and people like me as a joke to be remotely funny
i’m just really tired basically
