I dont care ur instance on discourse, i really dont but please.... dont try to change our history , dont change our experiences, dont do this, this is for all not trans women/transfemenine people, please for the love of god, im tired in see a really heavy term for me (terf) into tumblr discourse, believe me when i tell u than terfs want me death, no matter how much i pass they want me death, they want my trans sisters death, dont compare this to discourse thats not comparable...just dont
yeah like oh my god trans history has just been nothing but suicide and death filled violence, hate crimes that have been unsolved and or acquitted, and “revolutionists who equate women with vaginas.” nothing good comes around the term “terf” and to compare it to ace discourse is honestly downright disrespectful and transmisogynistic. it makes me honestly depressed for my trans sisters and transfeminine siblings out there who are hurt by terfs and radical feminists everyday, whether online or attacked in real life.
aerf is not a good term. point blank. its a horrible term that takes the bloody struggles of trans women and throws it all up in the air as if the death of thousands was a mere joke. ive literally had my frustrations up to the tips of my hair regarding this.
to anyone who think its “funny” or a “joke” to use aerf unironically, just know that you’re coinciding with violent transmisogynists.
Any tips for getting an ask blog for an oc up and running? Yours took off so quickly, and I was just hoping for a piece of advice or two! - A fellow OPOC ask blog who's blog is a sideblog and can't send asks
Hmmm! To be honest, I’m waaaaaaaay surprised about how well Enas has gotten this far !! I don’t think she would’ve gotten where she was if I hadn’t announced her through my Bellamy? I think making a main blog for your character will do a bunch more recognition wise, because you can send asks through them and make people see them when you follow others with it! (You could use a different internet browser if you don’t like logging out to make a new blog!)
I think following other blogs and interacting with them is the best way to gain attention back
I’ve never read a book that treated its characters with more tenderness, generosity, and sympathy than Benjamin Sáenz’s Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Even when the characters don’t think they deserve it, especially when the characters don’t think they deserve it, the narrative holds out cupped hands full of love and patiently waits for them to take it. It makes my heart ache so much; it’s a book that genuinely makes me aspire to be a kinder person.
“The moment we sat down and talked to each other, we had like a natural connection right away. He said to me afterwards that the most important thing for him was to feel comfortable. He had to be comfortable with me and I had to be comfortable with him to do all the stuff that we did this season. I think we just clicked and he felt as much as I did.” (x)
