I love it when you get really into something and start writing down your feelings, it makes me want to get into it too or gets me thinking about it more/in a different way. ur a treasure erica

You know what?  Thank you!  I wish I could just respond to anons privately because I don’t wanna keep drawing attention to the whole thing, but I do want to respond to you, because honestly… HONESTLY…?  That’s why I do it.  That is why I do it.  Sure, yeah, I’m also doing it because I genuinely like talking about the things I’m talking about, but I very rarely even make posts like that completely out of the blue.  I do it every month or so I think, usually talking about the Simpsons, but if I posted every intense feeling I had about a cartoon every time I had one, I’d never shut the fuck up.  Y’all are lucky I’m sparing you, honestly, haha.  

When I DO make a really rambly post about a cartoon, or some really lengthy tags on a reblog, a part of why I’m doing it is because your blog is a platform for you to talk about shit that you’re into.  And if people are following your blog, there’s a chance they give a shit what you have to say, or are at least vicariously interested in your interests.  Maybe you can spread a little bit of info, or a helpful review, or pique someone’s curiosity about something new.  I know I’ve definitely gotten into stuff because someone I follow online mentioned it before.

Like I guess tumblr kinda took the idea of a blog and condensed it into this rapid-fire way to just spread dumb content as quickly as possible and a community developed around it where no one feels right commenting on posts or giving feedback/input, but FUCK that!  A blog is literally an online journal, you can post about whatever the fuck you want, that’s THE POINT!  Ahhhhhgggh.  

And then the one time you decide to actually use it like that, people feel compelled to discourage you from it?  Like, I don’t honestly give a shit, my feelings are not hurt because some stupid kid who can’t spellcheck made a mean comment in my inbox, I’m just bothered that anyone has the audacity to go out of their way to be a jerk to a stranger on the internet when it’s 1000 times easier and takes 0 energy at all to just  f u c k  o f f  i n t o   t h e   s u n.

If someone saw my post and thought “oh cool, I like Erica, and she likes Bob’s Burgers, maybe I’ll check out Bob’s Burgers”, and then they end up with a new show to watch, FUCKING GREAT!  That’s frankly all I might’ve been trying to accomplish in the first place.  

ANNNNYWAY, thank you.  Thanks everyone who’s sent me nice comments in the wake of this or any other stupid meaningless post.  I’m not like, actually upset or affected by it, which is why I don’t usually respond, but I do appreciate your guys’ concern, and I appreciate knowing that y’all appreciate my dumb blog.  Thanks.  And keep posting about shit you like and sharing it with people  you like!!  That’s what it’s all about man.

i'm kinda amazed at how ballsy everyone is being about harry playing that game when everyone was catastrophizing louis appearing on the show haha. spill your guts fill your guts has the chance to go real het real fast and everyone's ignoring that (which is fine! but just seeing the difference between how people are reacting to harry vs louis on the late late show is interesting)

Don’t use the q-slur as an umbrella term

Okay, sit down and buckle up, because we’re going to get into why ‘queer’ as an umbrella term is not a slur.

First off, do me a favor and read these:

Have you read those? Thank you.

Now let’s piece this apart:

  1. There wouldn’t be entire branches of college curricula titled Queer Theory if ‘queer’ was a slur. That sort of bigotry wouldn’t fly.
  2. If bi people already get shit for not being ‘gay’ enough to fall within the acronym of LGBTQ+, then I can guarantee you that there are a lot of us who would be left out– because surprise, surprise when we only go off the alphabet soup then we get into the oppression olympics and people who need safe spaces don’t get the room to live that they need.
  3. Let’s look at my own identity:

    I’m not a woman, so that automatically discounts me from being lesbian (by the strict definition).

    I’m not a man, so I clearly can’t be gay (if we’re assuming the definition is as narrow as a man who is only attracted to men).

    I’m asexual, so I can’t be bisexual; and likewise I’m aromantic, so I can’t be biromantic. And since I’m not demisexual/romantic or gray-asexual/romantic, that clearly takes bisexual off the table.

    Well then how about trans? Well guess what? I don’t really identify as trans either for a variety of reasons (one being the way it tends to overwhelmingly be used to refer only to trans women and men in the collective imagination, and the other being that through logic-argument definitions in order for an enby to be ‘cis’ then they would have to be some type of intersex– and let’s not get into how damn problematic and wrong that whole concept is), so even though I’m not cis then ‘trans’ wouldn’t fit either.

    Okay then, what about ‘Q’. What do you imagine ‘q’ stands for? If you’re thinking ‘questioning’, then okay– let’s play along with that. I’m not ‘questioning’. I know exactly who I am. So that’s off the table.

    And then there’s the +. Let’s face it, most people forget about the +. So when it gets thrown out the window all we’re left with is LGBTQ. But, if we include the plus, then we’re compartmentalizing a LOT of identities into a narrow little box that doesn’t get spelled out. Pansexual, Polysexual, Intersex, Non-binary, Ceterosexual, Demisexual, Asexual, Aromantic, Panromantic, Biromantic, Heteroromantic, Homoromantic, Polyromantic, Cetero-romantic, etc, etc, etc. When we expand it then it very quickly gets out of hand, but when we just leave it unstated then all of those identities that aren’t made visible by the ‘main’ letters of LGBT tend to be blocked by gate-keepers from having access to the safe spaces we need.

    I am not cis, I am not straight, and I am not alloromantic in any way. But by those gate-keepers’ definitions:
    Not a lesbian woman or gay man = straight.
    Not trans = cis.
    Not homoromantic, biromantic, or panromantic = must be heteroromantic and therefore straight.

    If I’m cishet then sharks shit rainbows and give live birth to unicorns.

  4. By all of that^^^, then the only word that encompasses my identities and the identities of everyone else who doesn’t fit within those narrow definitions is ‘queer’.

So to roughly paraphrase what @bluefall-returns said in the third link I provided, ‘You will not even pry the word “queer” out of my cold, dead hands, because they will put it on my tombstone.’

If you don’t like the word, fine– but that doesn’t mean you can take it from anyone else.
