but i'm tired of fighting it

I used to be the kind of person who whenever people told me they didn’t like girl groups, I was like, “Oh okay, I can respect your opinion,” but I am honestly at the point where I can’t do that anymore. I’m so tired of hearing my fave idols get slandered because someone made a judgement based off of two girl group songs they heard 10 years ago. If anyone said anything remotely bad about boy groups, those fans would lose their shit, but girl group stans are expected to sit there and take it. They have to listen to people calling their faves sluts, untalented, etc. They have to listen to people complain about sexy and cute concepts when boy groups can do bad boy concepts out the ass and not get any shit. They have to listen to people talk about how their faves “can’t dance” and how “annoying” their voices are. And if a girl group stan says anything about it, the rebuttal is always, “Well everyone is entitled to their own opinion :)).” I’m not respecting an opinion that is based off of poor judgement and ridicules women. I’m not respecting an opinion that is hypocritical and disrespectful to another human being. Female idols deserve respect and I’m so tired of having to fight for people to see how talented they are. I’m so tired of having to say this shit over and over just because people refuse to treat female idols like humans. Girl groups deserve so much better.

Binary trans people don’t get a say in how nonbinary or genderqueer people conduct their lives.

This includes how we present, how (or if) we transition, what pronouns we use, how (or if) we experience dysphoria, how we relate to our agab, how (or if) we have children, and much more.

Binary trans people don’t have domain over all things not-cis.

No one does.

When you try so hard to keep a person in your life, I think it’s the perfect time to let go. I believe that love or friendship should not be so goddamn hard to keep; if they want you in their life they’ll do whatever it takes to keep you. If they don’t, then you’ll find yourself doing whatever it takes to keep them.
