WATCH THEM ON HAPPY CAMP

Also I guess you should also watch The Best Debut (here’s the first episode)

That’s all I have for you. Please love UNIQ and do not sleep on these five wonderful boys!

regarding the release of lane boy

it’s okay to:

  • like the song
  • dislike the song because it’s not your style
  • dislike the song because you think it’s problematic
  • point out why you think it’s problematic
  • point out why you think it’s not problematic
  • have a mature discussion about it

it’s not okay to:

  • send death threats to people who disagree with you
  • tell people tyler and josh would be happy if they killed themselves

please remember that tyler and josh:

  • love and respect all their fans
  • can handle constructive criticism
  • would never want to hurt anyone
  • would never be intentionally racist
  • are not perfect people
  • want the clique to be a safe and positive environment

i’ve never appreciated anything more than this

Third person gender-neutral pronouns

Alright, I’m coming to you, tumblr, in the hopes that some of you have more reliable tagging systems than I. I’m looking for any posts - rejoinders, anecdotes, especially scholarly works - discussing the validity of ‘they/them’ pronouns in academic use.

The short version is that my English professor docked points from my essay for using 'they/them’ as a gender neutral pronoun, and when I tried to discuss it with him, he claimed it wasn’t grammatically correct, it sounded ridiculous, and that while some style guides might allow it, it wasn’t proper for a scholarly essay. (Apparently if I tried to write my thesis at USC and used they/them, it would be handed back covered in red pen for corrections???).

Needless to say, I’m more than a little torqued and came away shaking with fury. It nauseates me that any of my trans or nonbinary friends might’ve run into people like this, and I may not be good at confrontation but I can’t just take this one lying down. Seriously, any resources y'all have got about the use of they/them would be appreciated (send anything for the other gender neutral pronouns too if you’ve got 'em. I’ll be using one of those for my next essay (because the only thing that sounds fucking ridiculous is 'he or she’) and I have a feeling he’s gonna be throwing another hissy fit over the use of xie/xir or whichever I end up using). Much appreciated!
