Hello! Truth be told I have no idea how you ended up here, but welcome. I only have the one blog, which means it gets filled up with a lot of unrelated things. There will be numerous fandoms, posts about privilege and oppression, and lots and lots of pretty pictures. Frequently school gets in the way and this Tumblr goes dormant, and then break comes along and I queue up a flood of posts, so don't follow if you like your dash to be somewhat regular. I'm working on plans for a hobbit hole mansion that me and my friends will live in. If you have ever thought about your own dream-home, then pretty please will you tell me about it? I don't put up pictures or much biographical information about myself, but you can call me Sakura Nicole. Despite my name I am white, and I’m sorry if I ever misled anybody on that account, it would have been completely unintentional. Oh, and even though this blog may not always be active, I will always answer my asks, so that's open if you ever need to talk to someone or rant. P.S. I do occasionally put up personal posts, usually under a read more. I would never ask anybody to not read something I put out there publicly, but if I know you in person could you at least pretend you didn't read it? Please and Thank You.
Also, important about why GSM/GSRM is an incredibly flawed term to refer to the LGBT+ community:
Lars Ullerstam, who coined the term in his 1966 book “The Erotic Minorities” included and defended pedophilia and incest - equating it with homosexuality and transgender people.
So yeah! REALLY FUCKING AWFUL TERM TO USE TO REFER TO THE LGBT+ COMMUNITY
HELLO FANFIC AUTHORS IT’S TIME FOR A VOCAB LESSON
- wanton: sexually immodest or promiscuous
- wonton: a type of dumpling commonly found in Chinese cuisines
YOUR CHARACTERS SHOULD NOT BE MOANING LIKE A CHINESE DUMPLING OKAY THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT
there are sjws out there that make a great deal of effort of protecting their bigotry and going about saying “when i say i hate straight/cis/white/ people/males i don’t mean i hate all straight people i hate the oppression”
if you don’t mean it don’t fucking say it
you know that that’s not what you’re trying to say and instead of phrasing it to make it so that people don’t get mad at you you just go “oh i didn’t mean this and blah blah blah”
it’s your fucking fault that you said such bullshit in the first place
stop blaming others for your inability to say what you really mean
Fuck it, I’m feeling educational today.
There’s this thing that none of you seem to know about called metonymy and it’s where you use a whole to stand in for a part. To give you an example, metonymy would be when someone says, “Washington is so corrupt these days,” and you understand that they do not mean that every citizen of Washington, D.C., or even every congressperson in Washington, D.C. is completely morally bankrupt, and that they are actually talking about the idea of Washington, D.C. and the structure that is in place being corrupt. When “America” goes to war, every single American does not simultaneously take up arms. When “the internet” attacks someone, every person with an internet connection does not become a hivemind of anger aimed at an individual.
So when I say, “I hate straight people,” I am saying exactly what I mean. “I hate the system of oppression and homophobia that was set up by and benefits straights.” Metonymy. Boom.
But furthermore, it’s not even that I “hate the oppression” (although I do). I also hate those who are complicit, who benefit from a system that I can’t access, and when I demand entry, deny that they had any part of it or received any benefits, and tell me that I should make it the same way they did - without any help.
I do not care whether you get mad at me for saying that. I could not give a flying shit if that upsets you. I will say what I want to say and you will accept it, because as an ally that is your job.When you decided to call yourself an ally, you didn’t just sign up for the rainbow bracelets and the pretty gay marriage .gifs. You signed up to support the queer community and that means supporting queer people in what they say, feel and believe. Don’t blame me because you didn’t read the fine print.
It’s time to take a few words back from the ignorant mouths of those that applaud injustice.
1-Victim. Victim is not a bad word. Stop using it as if it were a negative. The entire point of the word is that something happened that a person had no control over. If you say things like, “You’re making them out to be victims, like they’re children or something.” You may now leave Earth. Rockets board at midnight.
2-Offended. If you are a person who says things like, “I’m sorry you were offended” you are likely a person who is offended by offense. Which makes you, the least interesting character in every TV show, movie, book and imagined scenario. If someone is offended, it doesn’t make them weak, wrong or “Politically Correct.” It makes them a human being who is offended. By the way, just to reiterate, when you complain about people being offended, you are saying that you are offended by offence. Now that is what I call weak.
3-“Politically Correct.” Ever notice that being “PC” is tantamount to not thinking it’s funny to step on people? Isn’t it telling that you can be called “PC” for simply doing something decent? Don’t you hate when you’re just walking down the street and someone says something, oh I don’t know, racist. Then, you say something like, “Yeah that’s not okay.” Then, their head expands and explodes in slow motion as the words “PC Police” fall from their lips? Funny how you only hear this from bigots. Hmmm…I wonder why?
4-Ironically. When used to describe something you said, wore, ate, drank, watched, ect [Read: All things “Hipster”] what you’re really saying is that you don’t have the backbone to stand up to your friends. If you need the “I was just doing/saying it ironically” excuse, you have no strength in your own convictions and are using the “Ironically” comment to make it seem like you don’t REEEEEEALLY like what you are wearing, what you said, what you drank [PBR? Really kids?] etc. Find your backbone. PS-There is no such thing as being “Ironically” racist. You’re just plain old racist.
5- Illegal Alien/Illegal Immigrant. It’s Undocumented Citizen or Undocumented Worker. Learn it. Use it. Go forth and be great.
“chuffed doesnt mean what you think it means”
