QUEER REPRESENTATION IN THE MEDIA, a powerpoint by me.
i wrote a paper with a more in-depth version of this argument, if you want to read it just send me a message!!! and please feel free to add your own commentary to this, i rlly want to hear other people’s opinions.
anyone who makes you feel guilty for your happiness or who mocks the things that you’re proud of is manipulative and emotionally abusive and you don’t owe them shit
I almost forgot…..Nevada State Senator Kelvin Atkinson comes out as a black gay man today
I love those words.
What I also appreciate is that he had to tell somebody else about themselves.
man i love how my dash just did this and threw up the criticism and counter-argument right by each other
look, if you think boycotting ender’s game is such a horrible thing i really suggest you stop and read this and actually understand how movies work
using the correct pronouns is just as important when that person isn’t around to hear you use them
pronouns and NAMES.
be respectful of them both.
feminists who don’t know the difference between sex and gender, refuse to acknowledge trans* and non-binary identities, and equate women’s rights with having a vagina while proclaiming women are anything but their genitals, are not feminists
Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt
You are NOT supposed to bleed
If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.
This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.
I just really want women to know this.
