“Your aggression is scaring away people who would want to help you!”
The war against racism will be a hard one, and white allies, real white allies, used to be willing to get attacked by the dogs, beaten up, and even lose their lives for the sake of equality. Now you’re gonna tell me that in 2013 I’m supposed to coddle a white ally who can’t even deal with me expression my disgust for his brothers and sisters do? Fuck outta here. No weak allies. If you can’t handle a couple of sassy black folks on a blog, you’re not equipped with the ovaries of steel required to fight against racism.
What if our actual lives involve saving the world with our friends and doing really epic stuff
but in this dimension we’re in someone’s high school AU fanfiction or something
well what a shitty fanfiction this is
it doesn’t even have smut
it’s just angst and tragedy
- go here and download this script and install it to your web browser. for chrome, you’ll need to open the menu and go to tools—>extensions and then you can just drag the file onto that page and it’ll install; for firefox the greasemonkey extension should allow you to install it.

- you’re done! that’s it! now facebook will use “they” as your pronoun. hooray!
if u honestly think women cant be trusted in positions of power “because PMS lmao” please lock yourself in a closet and think about your life for a minimum of 9 months and rebirth yourself into the world as someone who isnt a total idiot
i love straight people talking about how they feel left out of or ostracized by the queer community. cry me your straight tears. sustain my life force
today a guy confirmed that at boy sleepovers they do in fact talk about girls and who they like a good majority of the time i just thought this would be useful information
Why does this have so many notes? What did you think we do at sleepovers? Meth? Animal sacrifice?
Well thats what girls do
Erm, seems appropriate since it’s father’s day, so
Trojan actually has a higher level of failing the stress tests with condoms than Durex, so use Durex
if you’re allergic to latex, Skyn is a REALLY GOOD BRAND and one of the only non-latex condom brands commonly sold that have extra large condoms
And if you need really thin condoms that are effective, Kimono is a really good brand
that is all, carry on
I really enjoy the fact that you can basically sum up the ending of Hamlet with this gif
that’s the play
No longer will the Social Security Administration require surgery to change a person’s gender within their database.
Following guidelines put forward by both the federal government for passport changes, and many States’ DMV, individuals can have their gender changed by sending a letter from their medical provider (a sample is shown within the following link) https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0110212200
HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK
I WAS JUST AT SSA EARLIER THIS YEAR TRYING TO DO THIS AND THEY WOULDN’T
REBLOGGING SO I HAVE THIS LINK CAUSE I NEED IT LIKE BURNING
Hi. So, I’ve been lurking around your blog for close to a year now (no tumblr account, afraid it will eat my life if I join), and trying to get my courage up to write this for a couple of months. I’m from a super-conservative family in a super-conservative part of the country. In December, I realized that I’m a lesbian. It was a big deal. I was upset. I felt like my life was over because my parents/church would never accept me, and I didn’t know anything about being a lesbian.
But I’d been lurking here and at your wife’s blog for a while, and you two were so AWESOME. You were nerdy and funny and smart, and the two of you were adorable about your relationship. You were the kind of people I like hanging out with in real life. You were normal. You were happy together. You weren’t the monster under the bed that my parents had warned me about. And it gave me hope that I would eventually be happy, too.
It gave me hope that I would figure this out and accept myself and maybe even fall in love with someone and build a life with her. I came to this blog for your art, which is awesome. I got interested in your wife’s blog because it’s hard not to like anyone who is that enthusiastic about Tolkien. I know that your blog isn’t about your sexuality, and that it’s maybe not entirely fair of me to turn you into some kind of icon,
But there aren’t a lot of people in my life or in the media that I can look to for an example of how this works. There aren’t very many people I can look at and say, “This is going to turn out okay.” You gave me that by being out about your sexuality in a way that made it feel normal. Being with a woman is part of who you are, but it’s not all of who you are, and seeing that has helped me start to accept myself and figure things out.
I realize a 5 part ask is kind of crazy, but I really wanted to thank you (and your wife) for being you and being out there about who you are. Please know that your blog is important and special beyond fandom and that it’s making a difference, at least for me.
This is a wonderful multi-part anon that was sent to me tonight. To be honest, I don’t know what to say. This is one of the most heartfelt, honest, most sweet things anyone has ever said to me.
When I was young, I was a vicious little homophobe. It’s something I am upfront about, not just because I am very ashamed of it, but because I want to show that everyone has the ability inside of them to change. Some fight it more than others, some change with the wind. But everyone has the ability.
Anon, thank you for letting me know that my lovely wife and I have had a positive influence on you. And I want you to know that when you are faced with opposition (and sadly, you will be), everyone in them has the ability to change, and to learn. I hope that your parents fall into that group. I know that mine learned, and accepted, and loved…and believe me, they had a lot of problems when I came out. And so did I. To the point where I didn’t want to be alive anymore. But I’m glad that I changed.
I don’t make a big deal out of my sexuality and my relationship with my wife, because I don’t see it as such. If, by doing that, we have helped to dispell any of the notions you were raised with, I am glad. I am proud and I am humble to have had any positive effect at all.
And I’m proud of you, anon. Anything in life that is worth doing is hard, and being yourself is the hardest thing of all. I want you to make a tumblr (even just for an hour) and send me an ask, so that I can send you my email address, and I want you to get in contact with me whenever you need to talk. Being yourself is hard, but it’s easier with friends.
Thank you again for your incredibly kind words, I don’t cry over much
THAT’S A LIE, but I cried over this.
Flatbear replies to an ask and all our hearts grow three sizes.
I know this anon’s feeling so hard core…. I have no gay role models in real life. I don’t personally know any gay adults. So being able to find someone ANYONE to look up to and to look at and say “okay…we’re going to be okay” means more…more than anyone could ever ever know unless they’ve been there.
God we fuck up teenagers’ heads. We tell them that biological conditions are moral punishments and then we get all shocked when they don’t practice rational risk management of biological conditions. We teach them “sex is super desirable and all the cool kids do it, and it’s hideously shameful and will destroy your life” and we wonder why they act an eensy bit neurotic about it. If you tried to design a system for making sexually active kids confused and unsafe, you couldn’t do much better than the American media and school system.
And for once, the answer is relatively simple. Just talk about sex like it’s a part of life. Some people have sex and some people don’t, because people are different. STIs aren’t bad because they’re Dirty Crotch Rot; they’re bad because they’re contagious illnesses like strep throat or whooping cough, and you can ask a doctor to check for and treat them just like you would with strep throat. Unwanted pregnancy isn’t a scarlet A; it’s a mostly-preventable accident that sometimes occurs when people are going about their normal business of having sex. You can ask the school counselor about a variety of topics, including career planning, problems at home, questions about sex, or conflicts with teachers.
If we could just get the goddamn stick out of our collective ass and accept that sex is a human activity and teenagers are humans, maybe there wouldn’t be quite so many plaintive “I don’t understand my body and I’m confused and scared and I don’t know anyone I can ask in person” messages flying out into the world.” —The Pervocracy - “Teenage Panic.” (via klonazepam)
