So y’all know. I’m not gonna be around Tumblr for a while.
Queerbaiting hurts because it’s just authors fucking mocking you for daring to hope that queer subtext might lead to explicit canon queer characters but “nope no representation for you you silly queers it might make cishet people uncomfortable and we value them more”
but people who get all ‘think of the children!’ when you mention putting queer characters in kids shows piss me off so much
because I am thinking of the children
the queer children who are living in a world that tells them they are wrong at every turn, that denies their existence and refuses to allow them a happy ending
I’m thinking of those children
I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.
I’m 6’2 and weigh 180lbs
ready when you are
Or if you’d like to have some more options….
and have 9 years of combined martial arts training and 3 years of being a Line Backer in football.
Just in case you are looking for variety.
what about a lady and a feminist. warning, combatives certified soldier.
because of that last post, I just want to note to dudes who say, “Well men don’t notice/care about [insert body feature women might be insecure about here,” as a way of trying to help women with their insecurities, you should note before you speak that:
-not all women are attracted to men
-even women who are attracted to men don’t necessarily care about what you think about their body
-emphasizing your feelings about women’s bodies and what is beautiful (even to say that you think certain things society deems undesirable on women are desirable) perpetuates the idea that women’s beauty and confidence is about and should resolve around male desire and regardless of your intention that’s hella problematic
so next time you’re gonna say, “men don’t care if you have a thigh gap” or “I as a man like women with body hair” or something along those lines, stop. don’t speak. just sit down and listen to women.
