the idea of gender is offensive to my people

WARNING: IF YOU LIKE NASH GRIER, DO NOT READ THIS

Normally I am one too lazy to type out rants when a particular subject is exploding in my mind, however this complete douchebag is the exception.

Yes everyone. It’s this piece of trash.

Look, I dislike Nash but not to a level that I want him to die. More to a level where i want him removed from the internet so he isn’t able to further the corruption he has left behind.

This dude literally pisses me off so much that just hearing his name wants me want to punch a wall. 

And what I can’t stand more is when his fans defend him.

REALLY? DO YOU LOVE THIS ASSHOLE SO MUCH THAT YOU’RE WILLING TO STAND UP FOR HIS RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC, MISOGYNISTIC  REMARKS?

Let’s start with the infamous video that started it all. “What Guys Look For In Girls”

This MOFO spends 9 minutes ranting about what makes girls “acceptable” to date and expresses an extreme disgust women’s in body hair. To top it off, he slut shames his audience and then proceeds to say that the most beautiful thing to be is yourself. Um, Trash Grier you basically just contradicted that statement with 9 minutes of stupidity.

Then he apologizes for the video by not.apologizing. No instead he defends himself, stating that he wanted girls with those attributes to feel good about themselves and that his main message was for girl to be themselves. THAT’S NOT A PROPER APOLOGY YOU BUTTHOLE. A proper apology would to accept that you are wrong, promise that you’ll never do it again and move on from this. But of course, your Jupiter-sized ego can’t handle that.

The fans that defend him always sAY stupid crap like “But he was young and didn’t know better!”

EXCUSE ME? He was young??!! The kid was sixteen in the video, the age I am NOW. I was twelve years old and even I knew this was wrong. HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE TO REALIZE THAT WHAT YOU’RE SAYING IS WRONG? AT SIXTEEN YOU SHOULD BE INFORMED AND EDUCATED BUT OF COURSE TRASH GRIER APPARENTLY WAS “TOO YOUNG” TO HAVE A SINGLE BRAIN CELL FLOATING AROUND HIS SWELLED-UP HEAD OF STUPIDITY AND EGO.

I know this video was uploaded a million light years ago, but the fact he hasn’t properly apologized to this day, still pisses me off.

Does the kid realize how much subscribers he has? From what I know; A TON. His influence reaches millions yet he decides to upload uneducated  crap like this is disgusting.

And then there’s this.

Nash uploaded another infamous video, a “Vine” it is called, basically informing his audience that homosexuals are the only ones affected by HIV/AIDS.

The video starts off with a commercial and then cuts to Nash’s UGLY-ASS FACE (I’M SORRY BUT THE KID IS SO FREAKIN UGLY THAT HE MAKES ME WANNA PUKE. BLUE EYES MY ASS; I’VE SEEN BETTER. JACK HARRIES HAS NICE EYES AND HE’S NOT A BUTTHOLE)

Nash the trash hole proceeds to yell “FAGS!” Into the camera with his stupid-ass voice and then the 6-second video of ultimate homophobia and stupidity is done.

I CAN’T STAND HOMOPHOBIC PEOPLE. I’M SORRY BUT THE FACT THAT PEOPLE CAN’T ACCEPT THAT TWO PEOPLE OF THE SAME GENDER ARE IN LOVE LITERALLY BLOWS MY MIND. DUH HELL DOES LGBTQA RELATIONS HAVE TO DO WITH YOU?

Nash the trash hole basically just told the world that Homosexuals are the ones susceptible  to contract HIV/AIDS. Not only was he offensive and derogatory, he was also extremely WRONG. He was spreading a dangerous message to his audience that wasn’t EVEN TRUE.

I’M SORRY NASH BUT HOW STUPID COULD YOU BE TO EVEN REMOTELY THINK OF AN IDEA LIKE THIS? TO SCREAM INTO A CAMERA ABOUT FALSE INFORMATION, OFFEND HOMOSEXUALS AND THEN POST IT ON THE INTERNET?

Some homosexuals have been bullied their whole lives, being called the offensive term “fag”. AND IT PISSES ME OFF THAT YOU DECIDE TO DO THIS AND SPREAD THIS WORD TO ENDS OF THE GLOBE BECAUSE YOU WERE AGAIN, TOO STUPID TO REALIZE YOU WERE WRONG.

Look Nash, you may not accept gay marriage but guess what? NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SPREAD YOUR MESSAGE OF HATE TO THE REST OF THE GODDAMN WORLD.

This, I will give you credit for. Finally you have admitted your mistakes. However, I would probably accept it better if you actually made an apology video. Writing down a bunch of words does not give much significance as much as a video of you ACTUALLY SAYING THE WORDS AND MEANING IT would. 

And then the last:

So not only is the kid a misogynistic, Homophobic asshole, he’s a misogynistic, homophobic, RACIST asshole.

Another quality added to the list of why Nash grier is the Biggest Asshole on the internet.

I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND RACISM. I, as a Person Of Colour, absolutely detest racism, especially white ignorance.

Look, I understand that ever since 9/11, America has been cautious of Muslim people. and when I say “cautious” I mean racially prejudiced against Muslim people.

It disgusts me that Americans have not realized that the vast majority of Muslim people ARE NOT TERRORISTS. Yet still to this day, Muslim people face racism, specifically from Nash Grier.

THIS NASHHOLE decides to tweet that his “biggest fear” are Muslim people. Seriously?

As if Muslim people don’t face racism on a regular basis, now this butthole has to tweet his racial prejudice. Excuse me, Trash Grier, for your information, many Muslim people are very nice people. UNLIKE YOU ,THE BIGGEST DICKHOLE ON THIS ENTIRE PLANET. IF YOU HAVE EVEN A SINGLE BRAIN CELL YOU WOULD REALIZE THAT NOT ALL MUSLIM PEOPLE ARE TERRORISTS! But of course, because your empty head does not have the capability to receive education, you decide to tweet racist crap like this. 

Honestly, Nash Grier is what is WRONG with this world. Notice how he is a straight, white male? He fits into all three categories of the most privileged one could be. That’s why he thinks he could get away with spouting this shit.

It disgusts me that he has millions of adoring fans, even with these remarks. Honestly, i’m concerned for society if this is what many people look up to.

I think that Nash should get off the internet. He is influencing the world for worse and we already have so much bad shit going on in this world. A racist, misogynistic, homophobic asshole like this shouldn’t be reaching millions across the globe if he is going to continue spreading this shit to his audience.

AND NO NASH FANS, the fact that he’ s “cute” (i just barfed in my mouth) is not a redeeming quality at all.

I’m not saying to hate Nash but rather to STOP DEFENDING HIM FOR CHANNING TATUM’S SAKE.

Because you have to realize that as much as you adore your idol, if he’s spouting shit like this, it’s WRONG.

Hate me all you want, I don’t care. If you’re too blind to see that Nash is a horrible person, that’s your problem not mine.

You know maybe if you shut your mouth and stop saying crap, this wouldn’t happen!

I would respect Nash if he ever actually genuinely apologized for all of this shit he has corrupted the internet with. Until he does, all I say is “Get this Nashhole off the internet, so he doesn’t cause even more damage than he already has.”

anonymous asked:

Different anon: Can I ask something about the butch/femme thing? Do you think it is more offensive for lesbians to be subjected to that because isn't that just playing on the whole heteronormative idea. That someone has to be the man (butch) and someone has to be the woman (femme) in the relationship?

First of all I don’t feel like I am qualified to talk about this so maybe you should also talk to a lesbean blog about it.

But in my semi-qualified opinion I’d say that it’s heterosexual people’s problem if they project their heteronormativty onto same gender couples. There are lesbain couples that consist of two butches or of two femmes, there are lesbians who don’t use those terms at all… and lesbians shouldn’t be policed about how they are allowed to identify themselves in order to prevent heterosexual people from being lesbophobic scumbags.

Blocked (: just bc someones not understanding does not mean you dont correct the fact that theyre coming off offensive. And then go off about other people trying to help anon bc THEYRE being offensive. How hypocritical can one be

Did you even read any of it? I didn’t correct them because up until now I didn’t even know it was offensive, and I didn’t say it was offensive to try to help the annon I just asked them to not assign them genders on my blog because I, from personal experience, don’t think it’s a good idea and think gender is a very personal journey. But you’re free to leave if you’d like to leave? I’m not forcing you to stay subscribed to my content. Have a nice day.

anonymous asked:

Hello, I had a question about transphobia. In my story, I'm writing about an alien character who is trans. The problem is that his race has a certain sexual dimorphism, where the males are much bigger than the females, and they have red fur. My character is transgender, so he does not have red fur and he's smaller. Would writing this in a profile be seen as transphobic to some people?

Hello Anon!

We can’t presume to know what prospective readers will or will not find offensive, so I can’t make a call on that. However, as you’ve established this is an alien species with alien physiology - they wouldn’t conform to human ideas of gender presentation by default. Beyond that, a character’s biology has no bearing on their gender identity anyway. If your character is transgender then they’re transgender. How they choose to express that is entirely up to them.

anonymous asked:

Honestly I might be the only one here who feels this way, but personally I feel like there's nothing inherently wrong with making a villain of any kind a certain race, gender, or sexuality. I dislike the idea that POC/LGBTA+ people should only be good guys and shouldn't be villains or evil. Yes, you do run the risk of stereotyping and can be called out on it, but clearly you meant no harm and you didn't do it in an offensive way, so I don't see why people are acting like you're crossing a line.

i feel what you’re saying but i don’t think that anon was saying that i had crossed a line just that i should look at my headcanons critically and make sure not to cross any

i do think you’re pretty right (though i can’t really speak on the race thing since i am VERY white) but i really hadn’t thought about the whole criminal aspect in regards to that headcanon which was a mistake on my part

Here's My Thing About Women in STEM

Whenever I get the chance, I speak in favour of supporting women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and encouraging girls to pursue careers in those fields.

Recently, however, I had one (or possibly more than one) anon accuse me of superficially pushing this agenda for the sole purpose of attracting women with some sort of fake feminism.

My natural reaction was to immediately question my motives, pore over past posts to make sure that the accusations didn’t have merit. I am, by virtue of my own talents and hard work, but also my gender and race, in a position that requires the utmost care. If I misspeak, or write about any idea that could be seen as offensive to the very people I claim to be supporting, I could potentially do further damage.

So, I checked. I even spoke to close female friends in STEM fields. The responses I got shared the same theme. If someone read it that way, it is possible that that is the only reason that they can come up with for me to speak up that fits in their worldview.

That sickened me.

When I was about four years old, I somehow managed to replace the root directory on my parents’ computer with an educational Sesame Street game called Astro Grover. To this day, nobody understands how I managed to do that considering I barely had a rudimentary understanding of English, let alone MS-DOS.

I continued to tinker and often found ways to break software and computers that were brought into the house. So, that’s where my mother came in.

I haven’t always had the best relationship with either of my parents, but if I was like either one of them, it would be my mother. My mom got a degree in Mathematics (there was no Computer Science at the time). She worked as a programmer for a large insurance company, developing actuarial software back when computers were enormous and code was run on punchcards.

She left that job to raise my sisters, and then me. So, when computers came into our home and I started playing with them and breaking them, it was my mother who took it upon herself to teach me to write code.

My mom.

A woman taught me to code.

I was sheltered, though. It would be many years before I learned that that was not common. I spent my formative years with the understanding that my mom’s brain was kind of badass. I was even lucky enough to have some extremely talented and STEM-minded female teachers early on. So you can imagine how far my jaw fell the first time I heard someone tell a girl she couldn’t do math or use computers well because she was a girl.

I am not proud to report that I didn’t speak up that first time. In my defense, I really had absolutely no idea what the ever-loving fuck was happening. Why would her being a girl have anything to do with it? Why did the others not look equally confused?

Eventually, when I figured it out, much like after I checked myself in response to this anon, I got angry.

I have my mom’s genes. I learned my first algorithms from her. I ran my first compilation under the tutelage of the same woman who packed my lunches for school.

If she and other women like her are not made to excel in STEM, then neither am I.

That Girly Stuff: Did you skank your way to the top?

I saw on SDN this thread on what to wear on rotations and to be fair it was from 04, but everyone was horrible and they all just pretty much were saying all women were skanky looking unprofessional sluts who use looks and sex to get ahead like wow i get everyone should be dressed appropriately but do people really think women can’t earn their professionalism by hard work? - Anon

First of all,

 CONSIDER THE SOURCE

Sounds to me like the dudebros that were writing on that thread have very little respect for their female colleagues. 

It doesn’t matter that it was written 10 years ago. Someone probably wrote or said the same thing yesterday. But let’s be clear: you don’t get into medical school on cleavage and legs. You get in and get through on hard work, brains, and a touch of personality. Those women earned their place in medical school. It wasn’t traded to them for sex. If anything, they may have had to work harder than their male counterparts just so people would respect more than just their figures.

 

Regardless of how the women were dressed, it sounds like the guys are jealous that they’re not getting all the attention. Heaven forbid a guy have to work hard and go the extra mile to be noticed and appreciated.

anonymous asked:

are drag queens and kings offensive/rude to trans people?


I’m cis, so it’s not my place to say what’s offensive to trans people. 

With that said, there are a lot of elements of ‘mainstream’ drag that rely on distinctly transmisogynistic tropes, and some cis queens use transphobic slurs or play into extremely toxic ideas. The more cissexist the environment, the more  chance those performing in drag will end up playing into dangerous transphobic beliefs (especially if it’s a drag community trying to appeal to cishets). There is already a huge problem with cishets conflating drag, gender nonconformity, and trans identity, and knowing that broader societal context, it’s extremely irresponsible and dangerous to play into that confusion/ignorance.

However, there are also a ton of trans people who perform in drag, and before the trans community was more solidly established a lot of trans people were able to gain validation, acceptance, and community through drag. It’s an important part of trans history that I don’t think should be disregarded, especially because a lot of closeted trans people are still able to find comfort in drag even today. 

And I think a lot of young people who are gender nonconforming in whatever direction– drag gives them a way to ‘try on’ an exaggerated version of a style they might be a lot more comfortable with later on. A lot of (cis and trans) butch lesbians and (straight and GBPQ+) trans men start out performing as kings, and if they get positive reactions & acceptance through that, they feel safer to embrace that part of their identity publicly. 

Ultimately, I don’t personally believe that the act of performing in exaggerated versions of culturally established genders is inherently problematic, but within the context of a culture which is violently transphobic– and especially transmisogynistic– it can easily become a tool of violence and oppression. It’s important to be critical and aware of this when entering drag communities. And I 100% trust the judgement of trans people to make the call when those communities should and should not be supported.

whats the dif between bi and pan? i used to think (and sorry if it's offensive) bi = likes men and women, pan = likes everyone, men, women, non binary, intersex, trans, etc. but i've seen posts saying those 'definitions' are wrong and are offensive (sorry!) so idk

I have no idea. I have literally no idea what the difference is. The good news is, we are not alone.

No, wait, that’s not good at all. The way I describe “bisexual” is “being attracted to my same gender and to others.” Some people use that definition for “pansexual” as well. The only definition I don’t like is the one where people say, “Bisexuals will have sex with cis men or cis women, but pansexuals will have sex with transgender people, too.” Because that’s just kind of a shitty thing that seems like a way to justify transphobia as being as innate as a person’s sexuality, and therefore unchangeable somehow. Seems like a “I don’t date transgender people because I’m just not attracted to them” cop out.

anonymous asked:

My ex-gf just found out I'm now dating a guy and she's being really hurtful. She posted that Alex Vause quote that's like "never fall in love with a straight girl" and she keeps telling people that her first love "turned out to be straight so fuck straight people". The thing is though.. She always knew I was bi. And I hate how she's telling everyone that I'm "actually straight" when being bi has been a part of my identity for so long. Any ideas for how to deal with this??

i do NOT understand why people feel like they’re suddenly ‘betrayed’ by their bisexual ex when the person dates someone of another gender. like… who you are dating now has ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT WHATSOEVER on the relationship you had with her when you two were together!

and it’s honestly so disgusting she wants to pull the alex vaus bs, holy shit? i’m really sorry, that’s so unfair to you and offensive and inconsiderate and so many other things.

if you two are still on positive speaking terms, you could reach out to her and tell her that the things she’s posting are hurting you because they’re 100% biphobic comments and they are actively erasing your identity as well as erasing the relationship you two had, which is not something she has the right to do.

if you two aren’t on good speaking terms, the best thing to do is just block all this negative content and try to surround yourself with people who acknowledge and respect your bisexuality and who won’t jump on the bandwagon your ex is steering atm. while i can understand, to a degree, feeling jealous or sad or a lil upset that an ex is with someone new, this is just like very beyond any acceptable lines and she needs to chill the fuck out with this crap. 

in summary:

  • biphobia out the butt
  • who you date after a break up is not your ex’s business and even if they find out, they do not have the fuckin right to blast such offensive crap like this to garner sympathy by being biphobic like wtf
  • if possible, try to have a conversation to explain that this IS offensive and how it directly hurts you and your identity
  • if not, just block and make urself a pretty bisexual flower crown and remind urself that ur FABULOUS and VALID

anonymous asked:

So after seeing so much backlash you can get when you bring color, or race, or what have you into a character description, I've made it a point to hold back describing anything physical about any of my major characters aside from gender and style(clothing, tattoos, hair length). What's your opinion on a choice like this? Good idea? Bad idea?

I think it’s a bad idea, because you’re stripping your characters of a huge part of their identity and life by making the reader assume. You gotta ask yourself why you’re avoiding it. Are you worried about describing a person of color in an offensive way? There’s a solution to that! Are you worried that a bunch of racist people will be upset that some of your characters aren’t white? Fuck those people. They’re not worth anybody’s time.

Don’t let fear hold you back as a writer. Don’t be afraid of describing people as clearly as possible. You owe your characters and your readers to be inclusive.

The Christian Perspective on Homosexuality

It naturally depends on what your faith or beliefs is, since people of different religions perceive things differently, according to their holy books (i.e Bible, Ko'ran, etc)


If you don’t have any beliefs in any particular “deity” then I should say that, this doesn’t relate, or apply, I guess to you in a certain sense

Now, though I have done my share of time studying other “religions” I can only talk from a Christian perspective, since I have never come across anything in the other “religions” regarding the subject of homosexuality

So, the thing I must put out though is that, realistically speaking even in a social or a worldly view, homosexuality is still considered to be immoral or unacceptable


Putting that aside, in Christianity, it promotes or focuses love towards other people regardless of what “their” sin is since all people are considered sinners and therefore have no right to call others out on it

But also, a lot of verses say to “love your neighbor even your enemies”
which doesn’t imply to *love the sinner*, and hate the sin*, but to simply love the sinner, Period!

*Personally, its contradictory since loving the sinner but hating the sin, doesn’t make sense since it implies that you accept the sinner though he sins,
it doesn’t complement nor support each other so, you cannot hate the sin but love the sinner, Also putting the fact that Jesus never said a statement, its questionable*

Though it is true that some “certain” Christians do not follow this statement,
you cannot lump people based on their individual opinions cause that is impractical and one sided

Look at what the sources of where their “religiousness” comes from (i.e.) Each religions respective “holy” books

If they fail to do those things that are stated in their respective “holy books” then they are not following it, not being “proper” believers and are also cast away from the “actual” and “legitimate” ones

Its as if I’m saying that the entire Muslim community is violent, because ISIS is Islamic

People should be mindful of this, cause you will look ignorant

Being a “religious” person, I myself find it offensive to see people of the same “religion” to do something stupid against the Homosexual community…

Personally, I am against the idea of homosexuality

But that doesn’t mean that I have “right” to judge them or force my opinions on them

I do not hate gay people nor do I accept their way of thinking..
I am just against what they believe, not “who they are as a person”
They are people first, gender second…

So are Christians against the LGBT community, or homosexuality as a whole? Without a doubt yes!

But, we do not seek to aggressively force you to stop nor claim that hell is your destination in the afterlife, etc. at least the informed Christians don’t, I don’t know about the stupid ones though

And we (Christians) are also called to love you, since you are a sinner much like all of us…

We have no right to judge you or persecute you…

Looking at it in a more social point of view, its not okay to be gay

Rather it is ~FAAAAAABUUULOUS!

Well, that’s my opinion at least…

~Cheers

I’m 100% for correct representation & I support a good deal of what people in the rpc are saying (cis people not playing trans characters, white people doing extensive research of cultures/history if they’re gonna play a POC) but if we’re getting to the point where we’re gonna completely limit everyone to only playing faces that have the same gender/race/culture/EVERYTHING as the mun………. it’s a little much in my opinion? It’s fine if you personally choose to only play faces that have your exact experiences in every way, but you shouldn’t police other people to the point where there’s no creativity allowed. Again, I agree that offensive portrayals or portrayals by those who have no idea what they’re talking about shouldn’t be allowed, but some of this is getting overboard……….

I’m gonna tell you guys a lil somethin
don’t be like put off by women who say “I WAS A FEMINIST BUT I’M NOT ANYMORE BC IT’S SO EVIL AND TERRIBLE!!!”
I’m telling you here and now
a woman who says she “WAS” a feminist and “ISN’T ANYMORE”
was NEVER a feminist lmao
having a TRUE feminist awakening is a point of no return
it’s not just “hmm men and women SHOULD be equal” bc any ninny could figure that out and any ninny could JUST as easily have that fucked with and have some man show up and be like “hey did u know ur feminist friends are evil…”
a real feminist awakening is like……it fucks with your head………when you’re first getting into it……..it’s shit like hey btw gender is a construct and do you really like what you like??? or do you like what you like because society told u that you as a woman should like these things????? btw are you even straight lmao?????? or are you only straight bc society told you it’s the norm??? have you beeN REPRESSING?!?!?!?! ? THESE THINGS?!??! BC OF DFJAIOEGJREIOGJAREOIGEGOIJGR BTW ARE YOU AWARE OF HOW MUCH ADVERTISING SUBLIMINALLY AFFECTS YOUR IDEAS AND OPINIONS ABOUT NOT JUST MEN AND WOMEN, BUT PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES AND SEXUALITIES??? ARE YOU!! AWARE!! THAT YOUR FAVORITE SHOW!! IS!!! RIDICULOUSLY!!! SEXIST!!! AND OFFENSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MY POINT IS
YOU CAN’T JUST “GO BACK” LMAO
ONCE YOU’RE IN IT, AND REALLY TRULY IN IT
YOU
CAN’T

anonymous asked:

Non binary ask here. My character exists in a world where the concept of non binary gender is widely supressed. They don't know about it until later in the story. The foreshadowing is about how they discover being non binary.

This kind of thing really, really depends on your character. I know that in my experiences, I often did and said things as a kid that at the time I thought were whatever, but looking back, wow, I have always been nonbinary. 

For example, when I was a kid I knew I was something like nonbinary but I didn’t understand what a weird, controversial, almost taboo topic it is in society and I would try to convince my parents of it all the time. I’d say, so when do I get to be a boy again? since I had this idea that short hair = boys and long hair = girls and when I was a baby, I had short hair. I wanted to be able to fluctuate between genders. I understand now that fluctuation happens regardless of physical appearance for people like me, but as a kid the feeling had to match up with the physical appearance re gender roles. I also took great pride in looking androgynous as an elementary schooler - it was never offensive to me when I was asked to clarify my gender. It made me feel proud. I didn’t know why, because the concept of gender identity was so foreign to me - I thought you just were whatever your parents said you were - but I knew it made me happy to not necessarily exist within the ideas of male vs. female. 

Hopefully this makes sense and gives you some ideas. -T
