Anonym fragte: hey aquila have you signed the nonbinary petition?

medicine:

nope.

not all nonbinary trans folks have the same feelings on it. i don’t think nonbinary folks who are for this petition are bad, oppressive people. i’m speaking from the perspective of a cafab nonbinary, intersex black person who is a descendant of enslaved africans who were forced to assimilate to the colonial gender binary enforced on us via white supremacist conquest in the usa. this is the context i’m speaking from. the hierarchy of gender and sex binarism i have engaged with because of my history is coercive. i am not speaking as a “person of color,” i am speaking specifically from how descendants of enslaved peoples interact with colonialism in the usa.

now lemme tell ya why that’s relevant

Personally I’m real fuckin annoyed that the homestuck fandom saw Dirk, one of our TWO characters that are undoubtedly into guys, no question they are queer queer (with the humans. Horrus/Rufioh was a thing yes but many people miss/forget it. I even forgot it in the first draft of this post)

and decided to have dirkroxie and dirkjane become massive flush ships.

Here’s an idea

Leave the queer dude in the queer ship.

You know, I agree with this, except…

Except why do you say “queer”? Why not “gay”? There’s nothing wrong with the word gay. A queer person could be bisexual! But Dirk is gay—and that’s okay.

I guess I am an odd one because I believe in biphobia, but i dont believe in monosexual privilege for gay/lesbian people. I believe there is monosexism, but not like a privilege behind it for gay/lesbians. Biphobia is a result of monosexism so.

I just can’t see how gay/lesbians have any privilege. That said, I don’t believe bisexuals have any privilege either. Stats and research just don’t support bisexuals having privilege.

now for the boring retread: not every act is a radical act. applying lipstick is not very radical. i’m not going to make a skateboarding joke except through allusion. burning down a government office? i have no idea how you define radical, but this is a bad idea.

Like, bloomersuit was saying the other day, I am also not a big fan of very specific labels for specific intersecting oppression for few reasons.  Or specifically, I don’t like to use the word “lesbophobia” instead of saying “homophobia”  or “homophobia towards gay women” or something like that. (obviously I think “sapphophobia” and “monosexism” are toilet terms used by people who live and work at the toilet store)

I mean, the biggest thing is I don’t like to use words that random people who aren’t hip to the latest anti oppression lingo don’t know.  I mean, obviously language evolves and there is often a need for specific terms, but I still feel like it’s important to be clear when you can be and I also think that you lose a lot of unconscious emotional connections when you use a more obscure term.   I mean, just, in my head saying an action is “lesbophobic”  just feels less like a condemnation than saying “that was homophobic” because we live in a culture where we at least pay lip service to the idea that “homophobic”  is a bad descriptor. 

And really, importantly in the context of dumb tumblr fights when you narrow down descriptors you lose the ability to talk about internalized homophobia or misogyny.   When bisexual women are hostile to lesbians or talk about “monosexism”  or perpetuate this idea that lesbians are retrograde or less politically down,  they are perpetuating internalized homophobia in trying to distance themselves from homophobic stereotypes.  That is important!!  They may have that complicated kind of straight privilege that bisexual women sometimes can benefit from that allows them to be more rewarded for this internalized homophobia.  But the idea that bisexual women can institutionally oppress lesbian women is absurd.  

And at the end of the day all this sniping focuses people’s energies on the shitty behavior of other lesbigay women, and then sometimes on straight women and *crickets crickets*  at straight men, who, at the end of the day,  have the greatest institutional power in terms of gender and sexuality and do the most to perpetuate misogyny and homophobia.


gay monosexuals”

Intersex people have all sorts of gender identities.
Assuming that intersex people automatically have a non-binary gender identity mis-genders most of us.
Having a non-binary gender identity does not automatically make you intersex.

This is the scene at the high school near me right now. The pupils have walked out of school. Why?
Because the school have decided to ban the pupils from wearing bracelets specially designed to support a fellow pupil who is battling leukemia. 
I’m totally with the pupils in this protest. I can’t believe the school have made this decision.
I’m just making this post to spread the word. If you want to reblog that would be fab, I’d love to show the school how many people are with the pupils. 

I’m so grateful for all the support you have given this so far!! Thank you all so much. Keep going, I entirely plan on using this to show them how you guys feel if they don’t change their mind soon!

UPDATE: The School dismissed the protesters as "anti-social" pupils. No change has been made. Most of my town is disgusted at the school. It would be great if this could get to 1000 notes. That would be an incredible message to show them. Thank you guys, I’m so grateful for this.

"the concept of crossdressing in itself is transphobic because it genders clothing" like certain clothing isn’t tailor made to fit certain gendered builds lmao
Snow: I really don’t think the concepts of masculinity/femininity being associated to men/women will ever significantly change, no matter how much these people pretend to be outraged. 
I mean really, ‘transphobic’?? Really?
