If you notice me reblogging
- a repost
- stolen art
- false information
please let me know, you’re not rude or annoying and I actually do give a fuck and I will correct my mistake, thank you
Also, if you notice me reblogging things from
- anti-sj blogs
- TERFs or SWERFs
- other shitty people
please give me a heads up. I’ll never get angry at you for letting me know and I’ll actually be really glad that you kept me from giving some awful person more visibility.
reminder that asexuals/folk on the grey-spec sexually can call others sexy without wanting to have sex with them
reminder that aromantics/folk on the grey-spec romantically can call others attractive without actually being attracted to them
reminder that anyone on any spectrum can call anyone pretty or cute or whatever without actually wanting to do something with them
homophobia is not an opinion. transphobia is not an opinion. ableism is not an opinion. racism is not an opinion. these things just make you a bad person and you can’t defend them at all. i don’t want to talk to you if you think these things are okay, and i don’t care about your feelings if you’re upset that i’m mad at you for these things, because you obviously don’t care about the feelings of the people effected by it.
Dear Therapists, Doctors and Counselors everywhere: I regret to inform you, but the Internet is real.
Yes, friendships on the internet are real. Bonds are formed. Common interests are explored. Support is mutually given and recieved.
Romance on the internet is real. People meet through any forum from Eharmony to World of Warcraft. Then, for whatever reason, the relationship blossoms and they decide to fly half way around the world and get married.
The bullying, harassment and terrorism is also real. When we recieve messages that tell us to go kill ourselves, we genuinely feel sad and bad because those messages are real. When we recieve threats that someone is going to rape us or burn our house down, we feel the amount of stress and fear that is appropriate for recieving those threats face-to-face.
The internet is real. As technology becomes integrated with our lives, it will only become ever more real. No, we can’t just “quit the internet” to focus on our “real lives” because, sadly, the internet is real. As employers increasingly ask us to put our resumes online, as jobs require us to have smartphones and email contact 24/7, as universities offer correspondance courses, and goods and services are paid for with Paypal or Bitcoin, the internet has proven itself to be a very real form of interaction.
The Internet is like real life, with good people and bad people and job opportunities and scams all rolled into one very new form of communication!
Please stop telling us to “just quit the internet” to solve our problems.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT PRAISE JEEBUS
I have such a hard time explaining this to my irl friends.
Steve Rogers did not go to war so he could be close to Bucky what the actual hell. Steve Rogers did love Peggy, and did not think that Bucky was somehow better than her. For that matter, Bucky Barnes actually has things going on in his life other than the care and feeding of Steve.
If you have to erase everything about two characters to make them some generic, preconceived couple, there’s something wrong.
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
