*post about people making cishet jokes being AWFUL with 15,000 notes, thread of comments saying stuff like “OMG this needs to stop. Stop treating allies like shit.”*
*post about a trans and gay people being abused and even murdered in some places with like 200 notes, a comment saying “please signal boost this so people know whats happening and that it needs to be stopped”* *every cishet ally flocks away from it*
i have these male-gendered pants that i got for really cheap because they were a factory reject or something.
the reason they were sold as that, is because the pockets were small. The color was fine, there weren’t any holes, or manufacturing defects, it just had pockets like girl jeans.
So to recap, if it has small pockets, it’s ok for girls, but if they’re boy jeans, then it’s a factory flaw and not worth full-price.

I have read bits & pieces separately, and I read his collection of Lenin’s letters, and he is a very flawed person who from time to time manages to make some good critiques of ideology, individualism & the importance of experience.
However, he is very casually racist towards Romani people, and very condoning of anti-Romani sentiment in Europe.
His critiques of multiculturalism fall very flat, are steeped in racism & generally just bad.
He once made a remark that if you followed strict Marxist theory, Venezuela would be exploiting the US economically in terms of oil trade, which is an extremely gross understanding of Marxism.
He’s funny to make memes about, but as a whole not worth much else.
catcalls and other street harassment are a form of violence and expressed hatred for women and don’t ever think of it as anything but that because a man on the street can go from “hey baby you look sexy tonight” to “bitch don’t fucking ignore me” in .002 seconds
it’s not about appreciating a woman’s beauty or boosting her ego with a little compliment, it’s intimidation and a source of empowerment for them
i unironically believe that the only thing you should need to do to access medical or legal transition is ask.
ok, new theory. maybe we should play so quietly, no one can hear us
well maybe we would sound so bad if some people didn’t try to play with big meaty claws
what did you say, punk?
WELL THESE CLAWS AIN’T JUST FOR ATTRACTING MATES
BRING IT ON OLD MAN, BRING IT ON
no people let’s be smart and bring it OFF
OH SO NOW THE TALKING CHEESE IS GONNA PREACH TO US
—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)
Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?
I didn’t know this.
When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.
And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this. They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.
knife his corpse
NEVER READ ANY OF HIS BOOKS AGAIN. AND READ HERS INSTEAD. CONSIGN HIM TO OBLIVION.
Fuck I didn’t know this fuck ugh god why fuck ugh
Yep. All true. Learned about his trifling ass studying creative writing and English lit. at CSU. Didn’t read ONE of her books on high school, yet we’re taught how amazing and talented he was. Makes me sick. xBx
Um. I thought it was common knowledge that he was an asshole?
I WAS JUST FUCKING TALKING ABOUT THIS WITH MY MOM
God bless Out of Context Joffrey.
