I have a serious fucking problem with a current trend relating to acceptance of queer and nonbinary folk.
The fact that there are so many posts where it’s like “Son, you aren’t allowed to have that dress. … It would look hideous on you, this is more your color.” The fucking SCARE factor to emphasize the relief of acceptance is horrible and I loathe it so much. If you’re going to accept someone, ACCEPT THEM, make them feel welcomed, validated, okay, normal. Don’t trick them into believing they’re about to me put down like they always are. It’s manipulation and it’s gross, even if it’s with good intent.
If one of my parents pretended to be upset that I was bisexual and then went “lmao jk we love you” I wouldn’t punch them because I’m a pansy but I would walk out and ignore them for like a week or five and be seriously pissed. I don’t want to be the butt of your joke. I don’t want to be the source of your amusement over your fucking manipulating emotional jumpscare.
It’s not funny.
It’s not sweet or cute or inspiring to trick someone to manipulate them into feeling a certain way, especially not for the satisfaction of them being relieved you were lying.
I hate it.
Can we talk about what’s happening in Scotland yet?
parental figure: “sit like a lady”
friendly reminder that the only reason fictional characters “choose” anything is because real actual people write them that way
I always feel this kind of excuse means The Worst Muse made a second visit to help them justify their “creative” decisions.

THIS IS THE GREATEST THING I HAVE EVER BEEN A PART OF ON TUMBLR MY LIFE IS WORTH IT.

#finally a show that allows its women the moral spectrum we don’t even evaluate when looking at male characters#because we so entirely take it for granted#a show that affords them the ABILITY TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES#so many women and such different women that we stop ranking them by how ~good they are#different women IN THE SAME STORIES even#just imagine (via notahammer)
i love how racists say they have an “unpopular opinion” like um no actually your opinion is so popular that there is an entire structure of oppression based around it that controls the entire country cool story

We know why.
Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.
And Sean Penn.
And Michael Fassbender
And Bill Murray
And Gary Oldman
