people is fake

There’s so much dissonance around the boys. They’re portrayed as dicks in the press but everybody who’s met them sing praises and speak well of them. We have the fans that believe everything about them, but somehow don’t believe they’re dicks. We have the fans that question things based in years of bullshit, but are vilified for picking up what the boys put down themselves…

Can we ever get some consistency here? Can that be a thing one day? in less than 20 years preferably?

it is ridiculously ironic that the su-critical tag contains people who will make up fake problems about the show but ignore how ridiculously inconsistent the animation is as if that doesn’t deserve criticism somehow 

oh! forgot to share about this

this past saturday the lgbtq group at my seminary held a retreat, and we had two wonderful guests–a married lesbian couple who had both transitioned mtf.
and they shared their stories with us and honestly just educated the group on a lot of things, like setting us up with a couple new vocab words, such as:

instead of “coming out,” trans people choose to “disclose” their history (they said coming out is very specific to what lgbp people do and isn’t necessarily the same process for trans people)

instead of saying someone “passes,” say that they “blend” in. (because the word “pass” implies that people are somehow faking their gender presentation which couldn’t be farther from the truth)

Other notable things they said:

“When you meet one trans person, you’ve met one trans person.” (as in everyone experiences this differently so don’t make any sweeping judgments)

“Transgender isn’t who I am, it’s something that happened to me”

I thought I would share what I learned, because it was very kind and patient of these ladies to educate my friends and me a little more, and honestly, us lgbp folks can always stand to learn more about how to be better allies to the trans community, which is part of our community.
(also if any of what I learned is weird or off, trans followers, please correct me)

Y'all know how Antis will always talk about how people make fun of “fake triggers” but respect “real PTSD” like those in war vets???

Sure. Okay. Whatever y'all say. Enjoy your fantasy world where people don’t mock any and every mentally ill person.

Don’t let people treat you like a cigarette, they only use you when they’re bored and step on you when they’re done. Be like drugs, let them die for you.
I don’t care about losing people who don’t wanna be in my life anymore. I’ve lost people who meant the world to me and I’m still doing just fine

The worst feeling is when you trusted someone and they turned out to be what you least expected. I feel truly embarrassed when I give my time to people who take advantage of my trust. I feel as if I’m mentally naked and exposed. It’s a horrible feeling.

I’m an observer. I stay quiet, lowkey, taking in everything I can. Stolen glances, facial expressions, the way our eyes can light up, or as if there’s a whole universe imbedded in them. I pay attention when you think no one is looking, that’s when you learn the most about someone. The little mannerisms that make everyone so unique. I’m fascinated by the way people interact with each other. How someone looks at the person they love when their talking about their day. How completely focused and consumed a person is when reading a good book. The way you can tell how much hardship the world has put someone through when they talk about pain. How trusting someone is by how much they share about themselves because they’ve never been hurt. I feel disconnected from most people I come across, and I’m a very good judge of character because of this. Every conversation I engage myself in you may think it’s just a normal talk, but I analyze every single aspect of it. I notice the little things that mean so much to me.

Best friends are supposed to be there for each other. Best friends are supposed to get through issues and problems between them. Best friends are supposed to have each other’s backs no matter what. So what happened between us? Best friends aren’t supposed to cut each other off without warning. I guess we weren’t really “best friends” after all.
