not saying I️ DIDNT do this to an extent or didn’t think “i fucking knew it” about a few of the famous men who turned out to be rapists and abusers but I️ think the weird response of the dispassionate “lol of course” or “[celebrity name] is next” is….unkind towards the wrong people. I️t’a only a good thing that all of this is being exposed now but the tone of glee surrounding all of it at least online really like… to me fundamentally overlooks survivors (and even women in general) who have to go through the trauma of realizing what they already know
GREAT vibes! When I first came out 1 of my friends was being reeeal transphobic (Using slurs&going out of his way to deadname me when he only ever used my nickname before etc) We didnt talk for a while bc of it but recently he turned over a new leaf? Hes been asking genuine questions so he can learn abt stuff he never knew & he started using the right pronouns & today he goes "Hey im sorry about before. I just dont get it.But youre a cool...*guy* so...I want to understand. Are we gonna be good?"
