Expect politics, veganism, feminism, queerness, and a lot of bifurious-ness.
I tag triggers and nsfw posts, so let me know if I've missed something you blacklist. Also, if you want me to answer an ask privately, just start it with a 'P'!

If you call yourself a survivor of the “abortion holocaust” don’t even look at me don’t even be within a 100 feet radius of me
Did you ever realize how much your body loves you? I mean its always trying to keep you alive. That’s all your body has to live for. Your body is making sure you breathe while you sleep, stopping cuts from bleeding, fixing broken bones, finding ways to beat the illnesses that might get you. Your body literally loves you so much. It’s time you start loving your body back.
Other compliments that do NOT focus on appearance:
It’s so nice to hear your laugh.
It’s good to see you.
I’m glad you’re here.
That was clever.
You’re so thoughtful.
You make me laugh.
I enjoy your company.
gotta say you’re a pretty shitty feminist if you reblog pictures of women that have been severely beaten up, when you have no idea about the consent involved.
it’s easier for people to remember what bisexual means because of the bi- prefix, so i just use it as a blanket term for the LGBTQ community (i hope that’s okay)
When RuPaul and his supporters defend the use of the words “tr*nny” and “she-male,” it gives the power of those words to those who would “castrate or put us on an island and drop an H-bomb on us.” Defending those words is tacit permission to others to use those words as weapons, to openly manifest their hate, against people who lack the ability to fight back. We police words, because they have the power to drive us to despair when we live under an unending torrent of hate. …
The excuse that they’re reclaiming the language does not hold water: you can’t reclaim it while it’s still actively being used against you, and especially if the words are being used against some other group than your own. I can’t accept the excuse that policing language is somehow a greater moral wrong than the harm of that language on the people it is being used against.
RuPaul is not transgender, and does not define himself as such. Yet, he has decided that he can unilaterally dictate what language is offensive to transgender people, a group that isn’t his own. Imagine for a moment if one of the most popular and prominent members of the transgender community was encouraging straight people to use the word f*ggot when describing gay men. Imagine if they refused to step back from the use of this word. Would there be a similar debate?"

I feel like we have such unrealistic expectations- I want to see how many times this gets reblogged to prove that rounded stomachs are natural, healthy and beautiful!
Most guys do not have to deal with the world of women. They’re born from us, they live around us, but for the most part, we take care of our own shit. We buy our own tampons. We deal with skeevy guys who catcall us. We deal with crappier work situations. We deal with getting told we suck at things because we have a vagina, and that we need to be prettier. […]
Then, they had daughters. […]
The girl goes to school, and you watch how she’s never called on. You hear someone insult someone else by calling them ‘a girl’, and it stings. Your little girl is awesome! She’s brave and smart and funny! Why would anyone use that as an insult? Then, you remember all the times you did it.
And then, you realize that, all along, you’ve been a part of the problem."
It’s like when a man has a daughter he suddenly wakes up and realizes, “Oh my God, boys out there are going to treat my daughter the way I used to treat girls”. That’s why men are so protective of their daughters. They know how awful boys are because they acted the same exact way. And instead of teaching your sons not to be assholes, you hide your daughters away.
Tired of this shit
tired of casual cissexism tbh.
"we deal with getting told we suck at things because we have a vagina". literally no.
