Tumblr believes contradictory things it’s almost like this website isn’t just one person

alt-j:

ppl on this website be like your grades don’t measure your intelligence but whether or not you drink tea and like dr. who does

Tumblr is not a monolith, those are mostly 2 different groups of people saying those statements

Were gonna contact the northwest network again this week cause we are forced to depend on shitty organizations to survive. Love being queer and crazy

On January 5, 1993, a 22-year-old pre-operative transsexual woman from Seattle, Filisa Vistima, wrote in her journal, “I wish I was anatomically ‘normal’ so I could go swimming… . But no, I’m a mutant, Frankenstein’s monster.” Two months later Filisa Vistima committed suicide. What drove her to such despair was the exclusion she experienced in Seattle’s queer community, some members of which opposed Filisa’s participation because of her transsexuality — even though she identified as and lived as a bisexual woman. The Lesbian Resource Center where she served as a volunteer conducted a survey of its constituency to determine whether it should stop offering services to male-to-female transsexuals. Filisa did the data entry for tabulating the survey results; she didn’t have to imagine how people felt about her kind. The Seattle Bisexual Women’s Network announced that if it admitted transsexuals the SBWN would no longer be a women’s organization. “I’m sure,” one member said in reference to the inclusion of bisexual transsexual women, 4 6 the boys can take care of themselves.” Filisa Vistima was not a boy, and she found it impossible to take care of herself. Even in death she found no support from the community in which she claimed membership. “Why didn’t Filisa commit herself for psychiatric care?” asked a columnist in the Seattle Gay News. “Why didn’t Filisa demand her civil rights?” In this case, not only did the angry villagers hound their monster to the edge of town, they reproached her for being vulnerable to the torches. Did Filisa Vistima commit suicide, or did the queer community of Seattle kill her? (4)

i’ve been talking around this for a long time but yes the systematic desexualisation and segregation of trans women from communities of intimacy and care literally makes us die so haha

(via anagrammaton)

I brought this up recently, although I don’t remember to whom or in what context, beyond pointing out ways cis women have caused the deaths of trans women.

Realize the strengths of children with autism, not their weaknesses.

I was a liar and a cheater as a kid
who even wrote this

To answer your question that I think was probably rhetorical but I’m taking as not: the author is the same one as the “Ten Things Every Autistic Child Wishes You Knew” or something like that. She’s an allistic mother of an autistic kid.

was rhetorical, but I have seen something like that going around the tags. I read it once and it seemed pretty acceptable.
but that’s gross.
(yeah same author)

We realllllly don’t like the 10 things every autistic child wishes you knew thing.  It reminds us of the sort of shit our parents would probably  make up to make themselves feel like good parents if they were to write something similar.

STOP CALLING AFAB NB WOMEN INVALID OR INCOHERENT

ihopethepeople:

We are not “actually cis,” we are not “trying to be afab trans women,” we are real people with a unique set of experiences and issues.

I for one had been an nb girl for two and a half years before I’d even heard of #myc. Nobody EVER fucking insinuates that afab nb men are incoherent or invalid like they do to us.

Disabledgirl.ism is tumblr user Celestia, who is a TWERF. Stop reblogging from her. There’s a lot of other disability blogs that aren’t run by TWERFS

We often want to know things about our childhood but the only people available to ask are our abusers so we just settle with not knowing basically anything about that time.

if your brand of feminism is that oppressive institutions can stay in place as long as a woman is in charge regardless of the less privileged women she exploits… maybe like try harder

do you ever just look at little kids and think

“damn, you’re gonna be one fine as fuck piece of ass in ten years”

I work at a preschool and this thought has crossed my mind a creepy amount of times

you people should literally never be allowed around children let alone work with them for a living

what the fuck
