less real

Y’all, I’m not gonna lie. My favorite extension on xKit is postblock. I don’t have to stay salty about posts I don’t like that everyone else loves, I can just click that little button and not see them any more without having to block or unfollow people simply because I’m a grumble butt about some things. It has made me a much happier tumblr and I cannot recommend it enough.*


*I of course mean things that don’t need addressing. I don’t post block problematic stuff that needs to be discussed or called out, just stuff that I’m grumpy over and don’t need to rain on anyone’s day over.

Nico was in border patrol, but it was just so he could  be surprised.

Can you believe this could be the first time Nico can celebrate his birthday with people that like him since his mother died? :))

Real Life Court: A judge and jury carefully consider evidence and testimony gathered over months of careful investigation, whilst adhering to strict legal guidelines and regulations.

In which John discusses whether human life has real meaning (and if constructed meaning is less real than derived meaning), thinks about thinking, offers to attend pretty much any wedding with an open bar, reveals his favorite two-digit number, and answers real questions from real nerdfighters.

Reasons Why Dan Has Basically Come Out

1. he didn’t
2. all he did was paint his nails
3. although the fact that him painting his nails is WONDERFUL if you seriously think a man painting his nails instantly makes him gay you are just stereotyping all queer men and you should be ashamed :)

My dear trans sons, 

This letter goes out to those of you who are tired of positivity posts calling you cute, precious or adorable. 

I understand. We could argue for hours now about how cute is gender-neutral - but it’s not about how comfortable I am with calling you cute, it’s about how comfortable you are with getting called cute. 

If you don’t like to get called cute because it makes you dysphoric, that’s okay. I understand. 

If you don’t like to get called cute because it makes you feel as if people fetishize you or see you as less of a real boy than cis boys, that’s okay. I understand.

If you’re tired of those posts because they’re often aimed at teens and you’re not longer a “cute boy”, you’re a grownup man -  that’s okay. I understand! 

Not all trans boys are “cuties”, not all trans boys love flower crowns and glitter. Trans boy does not translate to “cute girly boy”. You deserve to not be reduced to that. 

Trans boys can be rough. They can be strong. They can be independent, headstrong, though-skinned. They can act aggressive or unemotional. They can dress rugged. They can wear leather jackets and despise bright colours. They can take up space. They can lift weights. They can do or be anything that’s traditionally considered masculine. 

They can be anything but cute. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

PS: If you’re a trans boy and you like being called  cute, that’s great, too! This letter is not aimed at you. 

My dear agender kids, 

People may often forget to include your idenity in lgbt+ posts. People may not understand. People may even make fun of it. 

It doesn’t make your idenity any less real. You are agender, and that’s real and valid. Your idenity deserves recognition and respect.  

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom
