will always look
Free bleeding because razor burn + underwear + fleece-backed pads can suck my giant fucking ovaries. Also because i have the softest fucking jersey sheet that some idiot used as a dropcloth for painting and is now only good for being folded up with the paint inside, super soft under my naked ass collecting menstrual blood. I will be surprised if i even bleed much tho, this feels more like an endometriosis period than a real one. So much trapped blood trying to get out that my fucking labia and thigh pits look bruised.
And yes I’m posting this because this is my fucking life and I’m tired of coddling everyone else, pretending I’m fine and sparing their delicate sensibilities, just to be told I’m making a big deal out of nothing just because they’re ignorant about my fucking reality.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little oppressor? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my Gender Studies class, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on oppressive tumblr users, and I have over 300 confirmed labels. I am trained in internet warfare and I’m the top caller out in the entire Portland anarchist collective. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this site, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, douchecanoe. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of queers across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, fucktruck. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your blog. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can call you out in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with bullet points. Not only am I extensively trained in theory and criticism, but I have access to the entire arsenal of my college’s zine library and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little cissy. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little homonormative comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit femme realness all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
"radical queers" are a bunch of liberal fashion punks who wouldn’t be able to recognize their own articulations of patriarchy if one of them smacked them right in the glitter-encrusted, stick-on mustache
At least not in most people’s definitions.
Not because I believe in captialism or assimillation. But because I don’t have the privilege to be able to reject these systems and still survive.
Most of the ‘radical’ queers I know don’t work (or work for very little/radical orgs). Most of them I know have college educations that were paid for by their parents. Most of them I know police who is and who isn’t radical with no regard to privilege and power.
All very not radical ideas, if you ask me.
So I am very uncomfortable defining myself in that way. Maybe it is just my experience that lends myself to not IDing this way.
Has anyone felt similarly? Or want to say what being a radical queer means to them?
Thank you for this. It reflects what I have often been thinking about “radical queers”, who, although they claim inclusivity, seem to be mostly young, white, abled, Americans with a degree from somewhere other than the local Community College. Their language, too, is rather classist; it is highly steeped in academia, and when asked to explain the response is sometimes—more times than it ought to be—“it’s not my job to educate you.” Ostensibly, this is because they don’t want the cishets knowing what they’re talking about, but it’s also rather alienating to actual queer people who’ve never taken Gender Studies.
You don’t need to bash skinny people to say that bigger people are beautiful.
You don’t need to bash men to promote women’s rights.
You don’t need to bash white people to promote racial equality.
You don’t need to bash a certain genre of music to promote another.
You don’t need to bash straight people to promote gay rights.
You don’t need to bash anyone to advocate your opinion.

I FOUND INTELLIGENT LIFE ON TUMBLR DOT COM
If you honestly expect people to stop saying ‘boy/girl male/female etc.’ in general and replace that with ‘penis/vagina owner’, you are a new breed of stupid.
Yes, acknowledging the existence of trans* people is soooooo stupid. Next we’ll be taking steps to keep them safe and treating them like people.
This obviously needs to be stopped.
Yes, reducing people down to their genitalia and reminding them of what they do not have is *truly* what this society needs! It’s not like it’s completely counterproductive and offensive to transsexuals at all!

Old school queer anti-militarism
Also, what if the person grew up in an area where, culturally, a turban was something you just did?
cultural appropriation is putting fireflies in a jar
and letting them light up your bedroom
as you drift off to sleep.
and when you wake up all the lights have flickered out
but only when you’re older do you realize
you slowly suffocated them so
that you could enjoy their glow.
"misandry does nothing more than hurt feelings!"
-dozens of infant boys die from botched circumcisions
-honest men lose jobs and go to jail from child custody biases
-the definition of “rapist” is actively in the works of getting changed so that literally only a man can be a rapist (even successful in some other countries)
-men are driven to successful suicide nearly 4x as often as women
-prostate cancer kills nearly as many men as breast cancer does women, with practically none of the attention or care.
Educate yourself about actual men’s issues before you degrade them all to “stupid neckbeard fedora crying over the friend zone lol”
WOAH WOAH HOLD UP HERE
These are all very legitimate issues that affect men, but it’s not about “misandry” or “mens rights”. All of these issues are actually due to misogyny and patriarchy!
-circumcision is a big issue but stating that it only affects men is pretty cissexist! circumcision affects people of all genders! “female” circumcision is also a very big issue in developing countries and has a traumatic and lasting effect on people with vaginas. circumcision is an issue that many feminists involve themselves in and it is definitely being addressed.
-custody issues are completely based on the idea that a woman is better at taking care of children than a man is which is very misogynistic and is an issue of the patriarchy which we are trying very hard to fix
-men are considered the “only rapists” because claims of women raping are dismissed because women are “emotional and could never rape someone”, men are considered emotionless and animalistic because of the patriarchy!!
-this isn’t fact, but i’m guessing that men are more likely to commit suicide because their depression isn’t taken seriously because they’re too emotionless to be sad. women are considered overemotional so their suicidal threats would be taken more seriously. many men hide their depression because feeling is a “feminine” trait (patriarchy)
-attention is only drawn to breast cancer because it is objectified to the point of only being important because SAVE THE BOOBS, boobs are considered the only important part of a woman. if you would rather us completely objectify and exploit your prostate then i don’t even know what to say to you (this is also a cissexist point of view, not all men have prostates/ not all women have boobs)
I hope this explains to anyone reblogging this post why it is actually complete bullshit!!
-You’ll have to provide proof of feminism’s aim at combating circumcision of male infants, because the only thing I’ve ever seen is derailing of discussions of MGM to talk about how much worse FGM is, despite not being legal or practiced in America. You’re literally using other women’s struggles to derail, which is also something I see many people on this site complain about when it’s done to them. Really, can you ALL stop using people outside of America/Canada/England/Australia as tokens when you don’t care about them any other time?
-The Tender Years doctrine which favors the mother as the primary caregiver of children in custody cases between heterosexual couples was pushed for by feminists.
-The point about rapists is weak. Stop trying to apologize for female rapists and shuffling any discussion about it away under the banner of ‘patriarchy’ (Please just call it like it is. Sexism)
-"this isn’t fact, but i’m guessing that men are more likely to commit suicide because their depression isn’t taken seriously because they’re too emotionless to be sad." I’m just gonna ignore this line of thought because it’s obvious you are just making stuff up at this point.
-ACTUALLY breast cancer receives so many awareness campaigns and so much research funding because it’s the most common cancer type diagnosed in women and is also earlier diagnosed and more fatal for women. Your feels over reals argument about objectification/save the boobs is a little weak. In reality, research on prostate cancer not receiving close to the same amount of funding, despite having similar fatality and incidence rates as breast cancer is probably due to another factor. I would think that it’s because prostate cancer tends to affect men later in life, when people are more likely to be considered burdens on society, and therefore is a combination of male disposability and ageism. Again, that’s just my line of thought given the statistics of both cancers. I think it’s more logical than “boobs are the only important part of a woman”, because I don’t think anyone really believes that line.
So, actually your comment doesn’t explain at all why the OP is ‘complete bullshit’. Please consider actually contributing something other than lel patriarchy or nitpicking over cis-centric (not sexist) terminology.
A friendly reminder to not wear offensive costumes this Halloween that are appropriative of other cultures.
- dressing as any culture whatsoever because cultural appropriation
- dressing as any animal because otherkin appropriation
- dressing as any fruit because fruitkin appropriation
- dressing as a Homestuck troll because trollkin appropriation
- dressing as an athlete unless you are one in which case it’s not a costume
- dressing as anything cube shaped because cubes can be triggering
- dressing in scanty clothing because it could be shaming of people who would not feel comfortable wearing that
- wearing full coverage because it might look like a burka if you wear too much and that’s cultural appropriation
- using makeup of any kind because clownkin appropriation
- wearing anything because it’s appropriative of someone no matter what it is
- wearing nothing because nudist appropriation
- don’t celebrate Halloween because Samhain appropriation.
Thank you for reading and thank you for not being a racist shithead.
happy national coming out day i spent a minute thinking about whether finding fictional ladies attractive translates to actual bisexuality but then I remembered that media texts are created through the male gaze and everyone is meant to find fictional ladies attractive and considering that finding attractive and being attracted to are different concepts especially in reality my scientific conclusion is Nah i’m still straight pls carry on
