An Updated Tumblr Dictionary

incorrectusage:

Lesbian- Someone who says they are a lesbian. Male, non-binary, in an opposite-gender relationship- it doesn’t matter!

Bisexual- Oppressive transphobic scum.

Pansexual- The only people capable of seeing “people not parts”. 

Asexual- Someone who loves sex and has it all the time, just doesn’t have sexual attraction.

Sexual attraction- An impossible to quantify feeling. When someone wants to have sex with a specific person, remember, they may not be sexually attracted to them!

Trans- Someone who just doesn’t “feel like a woman” or “feel like a man”. What does that mean? Who knows!

Gender dysphoria- A useful tool for winning arguments, or a colonialist social construct society imposes on you, despite ample evidence to the contrary! Use whichever is more convenient! 

Science- White male cishet scum words with no value.  

Queer- A totally radical and not-at-all offensive word. What’s a slur?

Stupid, lame, dumb, insane, crazy- HORRIBLE SLURS WHICH HAVE LITERALLY NEVER DEVIATED FROM BEING A SLUR AND HAVE NEVER BEEN USED AS COMMON, NOT-REFERRING TO THE MENTALLY ILL WORDS.

Appropriation- Not sticking to your own culture and no-one else’s. Eating food from another culture? Appropriation! Enjoying neutral, non-sacred clothing items? GET BACK TO YOUR EUROPEAN OUTFITS. 

White- Scum.

Male- Scum.

Cis- Scum.

Het- Scum.

Transphobia- Anything a trans person disagrees with. Hanging the toilet paper on the wrong end is totally transphobic, you guys.

Privilege- The more of these you have, the worse you are.

Oppression- Collect as many of these as possible, and when in an argument, stack YOUR oppression stack against your opponent’s. The one with the larger stack wins! Until you tell them to kill themselves, that is. 

Kill yourself- How to win an argument. Sling this at your opponent!

Maybe white people always do/wear things that are specific to other cultures because white people as a whole have no culture (unless you count bland food and mayonaise) so white people don’t really know what it’s like to be a part of a culture or know what’s innapropriate
Like you can’t get mad at people for simply not being informed or cultured like for real

Be careful when you read this post that you don’t cut yourself on how edgy it is.

I think it’s funny because it’s the exact same rhetoric that floats around that I almost thought it was this other post I saw but then I noticed the notes
Which is to say it’s not funny at all because there isn’t really a single original joke here. If you’re gonna make fun of white people ‘stealing’ from other cultures, at least don’t steal your jokes

It’s not a useful post but there are so many of these right now. So very many bored people just filling the world with this negative poo.

It has already been deleted. Seriously, if you going to post this crap, you better expect that you can get called on it

"white people have no culture!" yep that’s sure not treating whiteness as the default while exoticizing everyone else, good job OP

So like when I say “dysphoria” I mean “acute and significant discomfort/upsetness/or other malaise due to having sex organs and characteristics normative of your birth sex.”

What I do not mean are the feels you get when you work yourself up over someone calling you “dude” or “girl” just because you feel like they see you as a hairy man or a prissy lady.

What I do not mean is feeling uncomfortable because you’re in a dress today and you don’t like dresses or you’re in a tie today and you don’t like ties. I do not mean feeling awkward because you’re dressing normative to your sex and you don’t like that.

What I do not mean is the fact that your boobs/facial hair is not your favorite part of your body, but you figure you’ll survive.

When I say dysphoria, I mean the shit that makes it contentious whether you will survive or not. So I think it’s cute when I mention “dysphoria” and people think I mean just being uncomfortable with your sex’s assigned social role. Almost no cis woman is comfortable with their sex’s assigned social role. #PatriarchalBeautyStandards #HarrassmentAndThreatOfSexualAssault #WageGap etc. etc. Does that mean they are all trans? Fuck no.

The other thing about dysphoria is that it is not feeling crappy about your sexed parts just because they’re the reason people call you a “girl” or a “boy.” “I don’t like being called a girl, people call me a girl because I have boobs, therefore I hate my boobs.” No. Your issue is body image and social discomfort with the female sex role. When I say dysphoria, I mean the intrinsic and visceral that exists outside the social roles. Feeling crappy about your sexed parts because they are those sexed parts attached to you, not because they get a certain reaction from society. The former needs medical treatment, the latter needs good therapy. Both are important, but only one is dysphoria that makes you trans.

Can we talk about this

This is why gender compass type talk is bullshit and hurtful. If you struggle living with a female body day to day, but have no issue with engaging with femininity and shit, you shouldn’t have to live with that struggle when transitioning would give you a significantly better quality of life. This is why “cis” cannot mean “conforms to stereotypes of one’s birth sex.”

we’ve done it kids the trans umbrella no longer contains people with sex dysphoria

Girls can totally be strong and still like boys. So fuck u.

Why do straight feminists hate lesbians? - “I’m a feminist, but…”

“Cause girls have to be weak”

They don’t even see us as women.

I swear the majority of the people on tumblr have the wrong idea of what feminism really is and it’s really pissing me off.

Real Feminism isn’t hating all men

Real Feminism isn’t believing that only women are treated badly. 

Real Feminism isn’t just “hairy lesbians who want to rid the world of men.”

Real Feminism isn’t just for women.

Real Feminism is when people work together so both genders are treated equally and with respect. 

real feminism isn’t about lesbophobia

real feminism isn’t about equality, it’s about the liberation of women from patriarchal oppression

Thus making women equal with men so it’s still is and also will be a fight for equality. If it wasn’t about equality it would be a fight for women to be superior and neither sex is superior.

equality isn’t, necessarily, a good thing. 

making women, say, sign up for the selective service is equality, but it’s not liberation, because it means being forced to participate in male violence*. (not that it’s good men are forced to participate in war either, but feminism isn’t about men.) 

*yes, I am aware that women can be violent, start wars, etc., however, the majority of wars are started by men, against men. 

also, so you agree that your statement about lesbians was, in fact, lesbophobic? or what? i notice a distinct lack of commentary about that.

dear followers (all 13 of yall)

i promise i will post about something other than monosexism soon


punwitch:

Why yes, the word monosexism does indeed lump together vastly different groups of people in order to describe a single axis of oppression. Just like literally every single other privilege dynamics word does.

Maybe you could complain about the trash discourse of privilege dynamics itself instead of literally only targeting bisexuals while still using other words that work exactly the same like ableism/disablism (which lumps abled lesbian women in with abled straight men as an example lmao lmao lmao)

Lmao just saying

but…putting abled lesbians and abled straight men together (on the basis of their abled-ness) is different than putting lesbians and straight men together on the basis of their sexuality. because they, as a class (abled people) have institutional power over disabled people. but lesbian and gay people do not have institutional power over anyone because of their sexuality. you can’t be privileged on the same axis you’re oppressed on.


theoutlawtamikaflynn:

honestly. saying ‘monosexism’ is real is like saying ‘monoracism’ is a thing. because yea, mixed race ppl do face unique forms of oppression that i as a mono-racial black person does not have to deal with.

•i don’t have to deal with anyone, black or white or otherwise, denying me/erasing my blackness ever.

•i don’t have to deal with ppl dehumanizing me by upholding me as some exotic symbol of “post-racialism”, or as something ‘better than’ the rest of the black community.

•and i don’t have to deal with that unique form of othering vis-a-vis fetishization that mixed race ppl have to ordeal in white and black communities.

BUT!!

that doesn’t give me some sort of ‘monoracial privilege’ and i don’t “benefit” from ‘monoracism’. because mixed ppl deal with unique forms of oppression due to the fact that we all live in a white supremacist (and anti black) society. mixed ppl and i are both seen as things that shouldn’t exist in a white supremacist society, so white supremacy has created complex ways to ostracize and erase us. like, the same thing applies to bi/pan/poly-sexual ppl and the unique oppression we face due to the heterosexist and heteronormative society we live in. gays and lesbians aren’t supposed to exist, and because they shouldn’t exist then neither should any of us, because we disrupt heteronormative and heterosexual patriarchial ideals about sexuality and gender. so ofc this same society has created unique and complex ways of ostracizing and erasing us. and ofc all of us in the “community” have internalized these ideals, and some of us are perfectly fine with being complacent to the oppression many of us face so long as we get to gain some sort of superficial ‘benefits’ from the very society that wants to destroy us all. idk how to end this, and i don’t even know if any if this makes sense, but golly i am SO BORED of monosexism and monosexual privilege.

Anonym sagte: what's your opinion on the term 'gold star lesbians'? in my opinion, i find it to be hugely condescending to bisexuals-- like myself-- and lesbians who aren't 'gold star'. i don't think they love woman any less or worse just because they've been with a man before. i know i love women, i know i do, but i don't see any reason to revoke a perfectly loving relationship i already have just for 'queer cred'. then again, i'm not entrenched in 'lesbian culture', so maybe i'm seeing it the wrong way?

(Gold star lesbian isn’t a term used for bisexuals anyways, you’re in the clear.)

Honestly I have no idea why “gold star” is even a thing people say without irony. Sorry comrade, can’t help you out there.

The term “gold star” is not meant to aggrandize lesbians who’ve never slept with a man, it’s actually the opposite. It’s meant to shame lesbians who’ve never slept with a man for acting (at least in the speaker’s eyes) superior to lesbians who have slept with men.

I’ve been called a “gold star asexual” for having never had sex and that sure as fuck was not a compliment, the person was trying to bring me down a peg and scold me for allegedly talking over asexuals who have had sex before. 

If someone is using “gold star” in a positive context, I can almost guarantee they are doing it in a reclamatory way. It is unambiguously an insult. 

Interesting that you’ve seen it that way. I’ve seen it used in the exact opposite way, to shame women who HAVE had sex with men. 

Weird.
