white people: made fun of on the internet
black people: profiled in real life and can be killed for looking out of place in a neighborhood
yeah i feel u it really does go both ways
Just because you believe one is worse doesn’t make it okay to do either
believe? where do personal beliefs come into play here. call me old fashioned but i’m pretty sure being murdered is still objectively worse than being fun of.
Morning guys. I hope you remember today that if you slip up you can restart your day at any time. You don’t have to wait til the next day to start over. Just sit down, breathe for a few minutes, and start again.
I like this. I really like this.
Reading this everyday for the weeks to come.
the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
Pangender shouldn't be used by anyone right?? Bc there are so many different culturally exclusive genders and genders for specific types of people (nuerodivergent people for example) that site just impossible to call yourself that?

Pretty much. Ive seen it removed from p much every big gender masterpost/blog, including mogai archive (not sure if they did to begin with).
Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.
Do NOT out anyone.
AND DON’T “COME OUT” AS STRAIGHT OH MY FUCK
Also please don’t feel like you HAVE to come out! Only come out if you want to and it is safe for you to do so.
And if you come out, feel free to tell us about it! We love coming out stories of all kinds.
here is a great website that outlines a lot of ableist language that people still use today, as well as talks about WHY these words are ableist and gives alternative words to use.
please read this page and phase ableist language out of your daily conversations, it does make a difference.
From the link:
”One important note: Many people who identify with particular disabilities or disability in general may use descriptors from this list in an act of reclaiming the language. You may well too! BUT if you do not identify with a particular disability/disabled identity, it’s probably appropriative to use some of those terms.”
I get really nervous around other non-binary people because I'm pretty sure I'm non-binary -because- of past trauma. I keep telling myself that it doesn't invalidate my identity, but I oftentimes feel I should keep quiet lest people use me as an 'example' of how it's 'just a trauma thing'.

I identify as agender due to past abuse and also mental illness sustained by my identifying as a specific binary gender, or as a part of a binary gender. it does not invalidate me, it does not invalidate you. if people use you as an example for that they are being ableist and cissexist(like invalidating nb identities) and you should shove them out of your life. if you cant do that, ask them if they identify as their gender because of a mental illness reason (generally not a tact i would use, but the other person started it and they deserve to know the discomfort caused.
edit: i should have said ‘do you id as your gender due to past experiences or mental states?’ not how i originally put it. my bad
I don’t think I ID as non-binary because of any trauma, and I will defend you claiming the non-binary label if you want to. anyone who says it’s “just a trauma thing” is talking bullshit and completely wrong and just needs to shut up.
whether trauma has influenced what you ID as or not, no one has the right to say it’s not valid because of the trauma. NO ONE.
TRAUMA DOES NOT MAKE YOUR IDENTITY (or identities) ANY LESS VALID.
