"straight girls with short hair are often mistaken for lesbians" factoid actually just statistical error. average straight girl is mistaken for a lesbian 0 times per year. pixiecut georg, who lives in the xojane offices and is mistaken for a lesbian over 10,000 times per day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted

noyau-rationnel:

Lately I’ve been wishing I could just completely leave “queer” behind. Even when I considered myself queer I had a kind of uncomfortable relationship with the radical queer community, always feeling like I didn’t really fit with them. I don’t have piercings or tattoos, and I’ve never had a lopsided haircut. If I weren’t so physically androgynous I’d just look straight, which has always made me feel like I stick out in a bad way in groups of radical queer folks.

Last weekend I met up with one of my friends in a park where he was busking, and I was unexpectedly confronted with that sort of feeling again. I wound up standing next to and then kind of in the middle of a group of people who all had that “radical queer” kinda look, and I’m sure it was partially just good old social anxiety, because I have plenty of that, but I definitely got the feeling that people were giving me that “what are you doing here?” kinda look. I talked to my friend about it afterward, and he said that he noticed it too.

It feels really weird, because, from a certain perspective, I was probably one of the most gender non-conforming people in the park. I spent years being called a “queer” with all the vitriol that word can carry and had people I thought were my friends laugh at me for being “just too gay,” and now I’m not queer enough. I guess that’s been one of the most confusing aspects of transition for me. I can often fit in as gender conforming now, and that generally gives people fewer chances to pick at the scabs I have from sex dysphoria, although I do wonder if that’s because people don’t see my wounds or if it’s because they see wounds that women are supposed to have. Either way, there are certain benefits to not standing out.

But somehow radical queer politics still picks at those scabs. If you’re openly trans it tries to put those ridiculous identity/gender-centric bandages on you, which both prevent us from actually addressing sex dysphoria and enable outright misogyny and erasure of the effects of being female. And if you’re not openly trans, you’re the enemy, somebody who aspires to be “cis” and straight.

I guess I’m not really sure where I’m going with this. It just feels so sad and infuriating that radical queer politics are so dominant when they’re actually so anti-feminist and deeply unhealthy for so many people involved, and it’s shocking how difficult it is to completely purge this stuff.

one of my roommates has a bunch of friends over for a dinner thing and i’m obviously in my room but am trying to convince myself to go out there at some point as not to be rude. someone brought another dog in addition to the two dogs who already live here and i just heard a person say to their dog, in a serious manner “you really need to respect that dog’s boundaries” lol what a weird world how did i end up here.


darnhomosexuals:

but let’s take a moment to appreciate movements that want to be accessible to all and break down class barriers and such but then can’t not accessible language but instead uses a highly specific (often even specific to whatever sub-org they are) vocabulary that renders their writing a highly impenetrable mass of latinate loanwords that need a glossary appended

Mulitsexual people face more discrimination than gay people yet we’re treated like we’re not an important part of the queer community because some of us are attracted to the “appropriate” gender and might wind up in a committed relationship with someone of the “appropriate” gender in which we will still be queer and still be discriminated against. Meanwhile gay people can be a waterfall of toxic sludge on the queer community and their still somehow more entitled to be a part of it than us, smfh.

how do multisexual people face more discrimination than gay people

monosexism homophobia because this IS

Gee, I wonder if you’re an asshole who’s not actually interested in an answer to that question. Of course that doesn’t really matter since I already gave you an example us facing more discrimination, but evidently you think it’s perfectly okay for gay people to tell us that we’re not queer enough and we don’t matter even though we face higher suicide rates than you, higher sexual abuse rates then you, high intimate partner violence than you, higher rates of mental illness than you, and have waaaaay less access to queer scholarships and resources than you.

But sure, go ahead and pretend that drawing attention to a high risk group is somehow homophobia.

i’m not gay, i’m bisexual

and i find it interesting that the one specific example in your original post is not “higher suicide rate” or “more intimate partner violence” but “wahh wahh gay people are mad when gender conforming bi people with gender conforming members of the appropriate gender claim to be oppressed”.

I WISH I WAS A LESBIAN. Or that my best friends were lesbians. Why? LOVE MAKES US SO STUPID. DONT EVER FALL IN LOVE WITH MEN THEY ARE INFERIOR BELITTLING MANIPULATIVE MONSTERS WHO SUCK HAPPINESS AND ALWAYS MAKE US FEEL LIKE SHIT/NOT VALUABLE. JUST HAVE A LOT OF STEAMY SEX WITH THEM THEN THROW THEM OUT TO THE DIRTY MUD SWAMPS WITH ALLIGATORS WHERE THEY BELONG.

Beyoncé Makes Susan B. Anthony Look Like A Shit-Sucking Gutter Feminist

From our sister publication, ClickHole

The ironic thing about this article is that it’s satire that’s supposed to be making fun of Beyonce’s feminism by comparing her to a “great” feminist like S.B. Anthony, when actually, Beyonce /is/ a better feminist than S.B. Anthony. Like S.B. Anthony was a fucking racist puta who only care about white femininity and stepped on black men and women in order to achive ~suffrage~ like… lmao ??  Susan B. Anthony /IS/ A Shit-Sucking Gutter Feminist

I won’t deny that Susan B. Anthony wasn’t the greatest and I’m not going to defend her in saying the next statement: What the fuck has Beyonce actually done to fight for women’s rights and freedoms except for act as a face for a needless movement and attempt to ban the word “bossy” because it’s “oppressive” to women? She’s another star capitalizing on the fame and success fans have given her, she just happens to be a woman. I don’t understand what makes her so much greater than Susan B. Anthony because she hasn’t actually done anything.

Remember Beyonce’s insanely sexist song “If I Were a Boy?”

Why the hell are people comparing Susan B Anthony to Beyonce? Susan B Anthony died in 1906, morons, over 100 YEARS AGO. Comparing the two would be ridiculously inaccurate. Standards for feminism back then, when women lacked suffrage and many basic rights, and now, where women are equal to men in about every way, are completely different. And Beyonce isn’t an angel, she’s proven herself to be insensitive. She used the soundtrack of the Challenger explosion for one of her songs.

I like Beyonce, but I think people need to be real with themselves and admit that they wouldn’t be gassing her up for all her feminist ‘achievements’ AT ALL if she was white. Because, as it’s been pointed out, she hasn’t said or done anything that hasn’t already been said or done before. And speaking of insensitive, how about when she sang with her husband on a track where he makes references to the domestic abuse of Tina Turner, but in a sexual manner?

aroavenger:

where would aroace folks even fit into the ‘monosexuals are bad’ dynamic? like, the concept of monosexism is literally so faulty it doesn’t even take into account non-multisexual and non-monosexual identities, which is ironic since like half of the basis for claiming it’s a thing is erasure


orca-kin:

wqats monosexism

 the idea that straight AND gay people can oppress multisexual people and that gay people are privileged because of their homosexuality 

(it’s really just a way for multisexuals to disguise their homophobia)


My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.

“Any system so embedded must serve a purpose, and there’s a clear hierarchy: man over woman, boy over girl. This isn’t a valuation error whereby femininity has been inadvertently priced lower than masculinity, and we can’t rectify it with a market adjustment that declares “man” and “woman” equal but distinct categories: it’s how gender is supposed to work, a patriarchal innovation that trains boys in activity and girls in passivity to keep the breeding stock in line.”

Reminder that if you’re unwilling to have sex with someone because of your sexual orientation, you’re being either heterosexist or cissexist. Don’t do it, thanks in advance! (^_^)
