always correct

anonymous asked:

Is it ok to have a habit that refers to people to 'they' pronouns, whether their gender is confirmed or unconfirmed? It's troubling me...

I think it’s probably safest to default to they when dealing with any kind of person. It upsets the least amount of people. And if you mess up you can always apologize and correct yourself. Best not to make a big deal out of it in general.

I understand there’s been some confusion online as to whether it’s ever right to punch a Nazi in the face.  There is a compelling argument that all speech is equal and we should trust to the discourse to reveal these ideas for what they are and confidently expect them to be denounced and crushed out by the mechanisms of democracy and freedom.

All I can tell you is, from my perspective as an old English socialist and cultural liberal who is probably way to the woolly left from most of you and actually has a medal for services to free speech – yes, it is always correct to punch Nazis. They lost the right to not be punched in the face when they started spouting genocidal ideologies that in living memory killed millions upon millions of people. And anyone who stands up and respectfully applauds their perfect right to say these things should probably also be punched, because they are clearly surplus to human requirements. Nazis do not need a hug. Nazis do not need to be indulged. Their world doesn’t get better until you’ve been removed from it. Your false equivalences mean nothing. Their agenda is always, always, extermination. Nazis need a punch in the face.

(And the argument that such assaults allow Nazis to get more attention doesn’t work so well when they were already going live on a national television network, because this is where we are now. This is how normalised their presence in our culture is.) 

Glad we got that cleared up.

reading articles about transgender issues for video research and hOLY shITTT does the media not know how to talk about trans issues

- not all trans people are “born in the wrong body”

- trans people don’t identify as the “opposite gender” because there is no opposite gender because gender is a spectrum and not a binary

- trans women are not “biologically male” and trans men are not “biologically female” the term you’re looking for is assigned male at birth (AMAB) or assigned female at birth (AFAB)

- use a person’s correct pronouns…. always…. even if talking about them pre-transition

- not all trans people want to have all the surgeries under the sun and that’s okay, having surgery is not a qualification for being trans

- the parents did not lose a daughter and gain a son. they never had a daughter to begin with (or vice versa)

- probably more but im mad and that’s what i’ve noticed after reading only like 3 articles jfc

Stiles x Reader

Requested By Anon



“Do you know what she said, she said let Stilinski talk, he knows more than google.” Stiles snapped as he rambled on.

“Stiles you do always correct her.” Scott muttered and adjusted his straps.

 

“Yeah and I wouldn’t do that if she wasn’t always wrong.” Stiles waved his arms about and glowered at where you were sat reading.

 

“But she isn’t always wrong that’s what she gets so annoyed about.” Scott smiled at you and let out a sigh as you caught onto what Stiles was saying and slammed your book shut.

ladies in film: elle woods (legally blonde)

“At the very first day at Harvard, a very wise professor quoted Aristotle, "the law is reason free from passion!” Well, no offence to Aristotle, but in my three years at Harvard. I have come to find: Passion is the key ingredient to the study and practice of law, and of life. It was for passion, courage of conviction, strong sense of self that we take our next step into the world. Remembering the first impressions are not always correct, you must always have faith in people, and most importantly you must always have faith in yourself.“
