(edit: a few people have been saying it’s because Keith is jealous since he likes Allura, tbh you can take it either way you choose, it’s an either/or situation. I just like to believe he’s jealous over Lance because I’m an avid Klance shipper, but I still have nothing against Kallura. So it’s up to your preference in the end :) )
There’s a trend on tumblr that is more than rampant, and since it’s been going on for so fucking long i feel the need to speak on it.
Tumblr hates trans men.
“But thehomosexuals!” you might be screaming. “I see positivity posts every 5 minutes on my dash! They’re always saying trans men are valid!” And to that I’d ask you how many of those were about trans men, and how many of those were about feminine trans men.
If you said that more than 90% of those posts are for feminine trans men, then you are definitey using the same website as I and thousands of other trans men are.
Now, feminine trans men are so fucking valid and they deserve all the love and support, but when every single positivity post is about feminine trans men….. that kind of reaks of something more malicious. While it’s true that feminine trans men would face more discrimination for wanting to adhere to traditionally feminine things while also identifying as a male, there’s something more insidious going on.
It’s not an unknown fact that tumblr has ill will toward every sect of men. It’s went beyond the type of “down with cis” joking attitude to actual malicious will. And in my opinion (and others opinions as well, believe me this isn’t the first time i’ve brought this up to anyone), this is bordering on fetishization and erasure.
there are people on this website who are more than happy to praise feminine trans men for their femininity, but the minute a trans man wants to be more “traditionally masculine” theyre seen as disgusting and horrible and adhering to toxic masculinity. there are people on here who believe that feminine trans men are superior and Braver. there are people on here who think masculine trans men deserve fuck all and could basically be the cisgender people of the transgender community. there are people on here who use feminine trans men as a token that they don’t hate men, when really theyre attracted to the “female” aspects of their identity and erase the fact that they are men from their minds.
you heard me right. there are people on here who use the femininity of some trans men to erase the fact that they are still men. there will be post after post saying that men who look like women are wonderful. not valid as men, not manly as hell, they’re wonderful. and thats true, but theyre still men. theyre not your UwU babbies to love and cherish like little newborns. they are not women. they are not for your eyes. they have their own identity.
again, im gonna end this with the fact that feminine trans men are wonderful and valid and theyre still manly as hell even if they adhere to all “traditionally feminine” things. they are still men. they are still valid.
and using feminine trans men as your scapegoat for “not hating men” while simultaneously only harping on the “female” aspects of their identity is transphobic.
something i’ll never forget is something i overheard while i was skyping with a stoner friend, lance, who lived in a little cottage on a weed farm that his dad owned (really cool guy despite that background i just gave you)
lance’s dad came over to visit and they were having a chat while my friend chris and i were still on the call but lance forgot to mute his mic so we could hear their chat
lance’s dad has a pretty notable bostonian accent and he was a matter-of-fact kind of guy who was super real. the kind of dad who you’d wanna be friends with despite their being an age gap
the one thing that he said that really stuck with me was
“sometimes i wake up in the morning and i think ‘im still fuckin here? why havent i died yet?’“
Ladrien Concept that I may or may not use for tlatb: Adrien accidentally facetimes Ladybug instead of calling her like he meant to, and is very surprised when a very sleepy Marinette pops up on his screen instead of his very “should be wearing a mask” girlfriend. She’s obviously exhausted becuase she doesnt even bat an eye, and Adrien just decides to play it cool despite the fact his whole world is kinnda warping in around him.
Marinette: *yawns* hi Adrien, what’s up?
Adrien: h-hey… um… b abe? I was just calling to tell you goodnight and that I love you haha what the fuck is happening
Marinette: awww, I love you too! I’ll see you tomorrow okay?
Adrien: haha yeah see you tommorow Maribug- I mean Ladynette- I MEAN BEAUTIFUL GIRLFRIEND WHOM I AM EVEN MORE IN LOVE WITH NOW ALRIGHT BYE
i don’t know what makes me sadder, the fact that dirk could have had the same dream for two consecutive months or that he always wakes up to find he’s still alone and trapped in the last place he wanted to be which made his childhood a nightmare.
Her voice can return you to life, His music can change it.
See? Still nothing special (early sneak peeks 1, 2). Musical AU (read it as a noun and also as an adjective… Don`t even dare to compare with “La La Land” or smtn like this) or… Miraculous sounds AU? This name almost like a ref to other ML AU, so I don`t really want to use it.
*coughs* I decided to make it mostly as a comic and Im gonna post a Pilot part very soon.
Summary facts for the begging: - Aged-up characters (+ 4-5 years) - Totally different universe. No magic of Miraculous. - Chat Noir as a rock/rock-n-roll singer/musician. Ladybug as a jazz/swing/blues singer.
Thats all for now, I guess. I have a feeling that I`m already destroying the whole intrigue (if there`s it can be)
patrick poured his blood, sweat, tears, heart, and soul (no pun intended) into soul punk and its so OBVIOUS when you listen to it like not to get corny but his spirit just Radiates through the music and the fact that it was so poorly received by fob fans at the time is never going to fail to piss me off bc he was so excited to share it with everyone and y’all showed up specifically to boo him and tell him how much u hated it and wished he was doing something different (read: being anyone besides His True Self) that he still to this day feels bittersweet about it when he should feel nothing but the utmost pride and accomplishment!!!!!!!!!!! not to mention its a straight up musical masterpiece from start to finish!!!!
oK hey guys. so you see, on friday i have to go to school because we dont have a public holiday unlike the majority of people. so i’m trying to convince my mum to let me stay home so i can listen to reputation as soon as i can rather than having to wait a painful 6 and a half hours until after school. i created my mum a slide show explaining why i should have the day off (https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/180_z459i6YziK5h3DfiYGRGaUtvFEVQJHtV8CVO4CR8/edit#slide=id.p) and i also got as many people as possible to comment reasons why i should be allowed the day off on my instagram post (https://www.instagram.com/p/BbIMNJkD6tB/?taken-by=swiftoholic) yet my mum still won’t let me take one of the most important days off. except today, she mentioned “unless you can get taylor swift to give you permission to have the day off, you are going to school”. so you know what im going to try do? get exactly that done. if you have a follow, please help a girl out by reblogging this to get taylor’s attention so i can actually listen to rep without having to wait long, agonising hours!! ((these are straight up facts, im not making this all up just to get a notice lmao)))
i really dislike it when people try and shrug off what bakugou did to deku as just “bullying.”
there’s a line where bullying turns into abuse. and bakugou crossed over that line a lot. bakugou didn’t tease deku til he cried, he didn’t poke fun at deku until he was upset; bakugou abused him. he tormented deku into crushing his self esteem, he suicide baited him without a second thought, he’s mercilessly beat up deku multiple times from they were young and he’s done it again in the manga. he’s hurt him so much that deku has reached a point where he despises bakugou, even if he still admires him.
point is, bakugou isn’t just a bully, he’s an abuser.
Honestly I’m still, 2 weeks later, pissed the fuck off over the Maggie/Kara conflict, ie. blatant lie the CW made up just for conflict purposes. I can’t remember a time Kara has ever tried to solve a problem by punching her way out before she has tried to talk her way out of things. It’s a lesson she learnt in Human For A Day and has always tried to talk to people, usually before Alex can have a chance at shooting them. Remember how much Kara tried to talk down Astra for most of season 1 and she was getting through to her, and Alex went straight for the kill? If anything, the words/fists argument should have been between Maggie and Alex, since Alex shoots first asks questions never and even went as far to blow up CADMUS while she was in the building.
And then in Resist, when Kara tries to talk Rhea down from invading Earth, and in fact fucks the whole plan to blow up the mothership because Alex had to wait to fire the cannon and then it got destroyed, because Kara wanted to talk to Rhea.
I’m not even gunna talk about the fact that Maggie just happened to know who Guardian is despite never being told, and the blatant reuse of the mind controlled family member at the end of the penultimate episode that has to fight Kara into the final episode.
Honestly it’s like they hire a new writer every week and make sure whoever they hire hasn’t seen a single episode of Supergirl.
-the fact that kirishima purposefully teased bakugou into helping him study when he could’ve easily just gone to momo’s like literally everyone else??? (and learned shit without getting smacked lmao)
-the fact that they decided to go out??? they could’ve just gone to like? idk a library or something?? (but i guess they’d probably get kicked out cuz of bakugou ahaha)
-okay just imagine that conversation?? tsundere ass bakugou somehow coordinating a meet up with kirishima??? FUCKIN MEET ME THERE AT 6 OCLOCK SHARP BITCH!!!!
-bakugou’s outfit?? the popped collar?? asdfghjkl idk if we’ve ever seen him wear this before honestly it looks like one of his nicer shirts and stuff- he kinda dressed Up for the occasion and kirishima is just wearing lazy studying clothes LOL
ok people, listen up. freeform still hasn’t announced the renewal of three of their shows and shadowhunters is one of them. i don’t know what is taking so long considering the fact shadowhunters is one of their more successful shows but freeform is random like that, they will cancel the show even if it’s doing great. last year, we trended that we want shadowhunters season 2 so i can’t see why we can’t do the same this year. we need to act and show that we do actually want a season 3!
edit: tag your tweet with #ShadowhuntersSeason3 !!
the fact that the skam kids are younger than me still trips me up like damn man sometimes I’m like “I wanna be cool like them when I’m older” and then “wait what do you mean I am older” it’s honestly a struggle
