I would just like to personally thank gerard way for the phrase “unapologetic apathy” because. that’s just it. that’s my entire life and my entire identity, my mascot and my mantra, I wanna scream it from the rooftops till my lungs bleed. those two words are gonna save me
I HATED to see Tyranny and Osvaldo weren’t a perfect match! (STILL BITTER) They were the cutest couple ever. But my overall favorite moment in this episode is where Osvaldo was HURT/ANGRY/DISAPPOINTED AF and punching the bag/about to cry, and Eddie just grabs him and HUGS him. Like a genuine HUG.
TWO GROWN ASS MEN. MEN OF COLOR WHILE WE’RE AT IT.
FRIENDS. SHOWING EMOTION. BEING VULNERABLE.
HUGGING. ONE CRYING ON THE OTHER’S SHOULDER.
OTHER GUYS GATHERING AROUND THEM IN SUPPORT.
THE PUREST THING I’VE EVER SEEN ON MTV.
I can’t even say how touching this moment was. I was already crying about Tyvaldo, but this moment DID IT for me.
Males will always hurt women, always. The new push of transgender ideology is a new way for them to hurt us, by not only putting us in the inferior role like good old fashioned misogyny, but by absorbing our very selves, claiming femalehood as their own and insisting they do it better than females ever could.
It’s the same misogynistic tropes repackaged for today.
“Cis” men don’t want to hear about our periods because they’re “dirty” and “gross”. Trans women don’t want to hear about our periods because it’s somehow hurtful and exclusionary.
“Cis” men hate feminism because it doesn’t cater to them, trans women hate it for the same reasons. Always the motif of women not being allowed anything for ourselves.
Conservatives and trans activists alike uphold rigid misogynistic gender
norms and expectations. Where conservatives say something like “a girl
can’t do [insert "masculine”-coded thing here],“ trans activists say
"she can do ["masculine”-coded thing] but actually she must be trans!“
Both groups are extremely reliant on classic misogynistic gender
stereotypes for their agendas and worldviews.
"Cis” men expect
lesbians to try penis and give men a chance. Trans women expect lesbians
to try penis. Both actively manipulate women into considering it and
actively push lesbians boundaries. Only trans women get to act like it’s
oppression and bigotry and people sometimes take them seriously.
men like reducing women to femininity and things like makeup, dresses,
the color pink, etc. Trans women do the same…and in fact most of their
“coming out” narratives actively rely on these stereotypes. “I always
knew I was really a girl because I liked [dolls/pink/dresses/heels].”
Also listen to trans women talk about their experiences once they try
hormones: suddenly they’re these over-the-top weepy messes who watch
rom-coms and eat ice cream…because that’s what they think being a
“Cis” men threaten to beat us if they don’t like our
opinions or if we aren’t subservient to them. Trans women make TERF lists
and talk about beating, raping, and killing “TERFs” because they don’t
like our opinions and we aren’t subservient to them. Sadly they even get
brainwashed libfem women to go along with this and call it progressive.
“Cis” men think that they are better than women at everything.
Trans women think that they’re even better women than real women are.
groups carry the same male entitlement, socialization, and privilege.
It’s sad and frustrating how more people don’t see this and/or aren’t
willing to admit to this. It really is sad to see women defending
trans women with all their might. Trans women so rarely reciprocate and
trans women still carry all the same male bullshit as “cis” men do.
