i love those those sweet lovelorn posts like “you know you’ve got it bad when you picture them sleeping next to you” or something to that effect. but i never see “combing their archive for read mores or scanning their tags on literally everything to learn more about them because they’re so cute and amazing in person”
cuz yeah dude, hoooooly shit do you have it bad then
PEOPLE ARE DRAWING AMETHYST SKINNY
“How was your day?”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.
We can’t hate ourselves into a version of ourselves we can love.

Wahoo! I found the music that played during the Cloud Cuckoo Land scene in “The Lego Movie.” Sadly the theme that is on the soundtrack was not used in the movie as far as I can remember. But I definitely loved the techno music that played in that scene instead. So here it is, “Jag in a Jungle” by the Brite Futures. :)
Hey! I identify as pansexual and non-gender binary but I keep to myself often and I tend to be unaware of whats going on inside the LGBT community. However I notice some things when they pop up on my dash enough. I'm wondering if you could help me understand. Whats the deal with trans* men? Everyone in the community seems really unhappy with them, but I haven't quite figured out why.
Generally, transgender men have a tendency to fall into patriarchal roles where they exhibit oppressive behaviour like: sexism, transmisogyny, classism, racism, binarism, ableism, etc.
- Some use slurs that do not apply to them, and they have no right to use. (i.e. the t slur)
- Some speak for the entire community when it is not their place.
- Some spread misinformation and perpetuate the “trans enough” mentality,
- Some body shame folks who look differently or do not “pass” according to their own bigoted normative standards.
- Some tone-police and try to silence folks who are not fellow transgender men in supposedly safe transgender spaces.
- Some deny their privilege and play the victim when being called out instead of taking responsibility for their actions.
- Many take up trans safe spaces and make trans women and other gender non-conforming folks feel unsafe or unwelcome.
- Some are just plain truscum and exhibit all of the aforementioned behaviours.
- I can go on and on…
And when I repeatedly use the word ‘some’, I actually mean ‘most’. This is not new information, anon. This has been going on for quite some time now, and the fact that people still have a hard time seeing this everywhere they go - in the media, on the streets, in our “safe spaces”, on the internet, etc. - astounds me to this day. It is fucking terrifying and sad.
Here are some more specific examples I have compiled.
The person I reblogged this from deserves to be happy.
The most important reason why we need the word “cis” in our lexicon is because it tells the thousands of young trans people out there right now who are struggling with their sense of identity, some of whom do not even realise yet that that is what they are doing, that there is something that you can be that is not what you were told you could be.
I did not know the word “cis” when I was 8 years old, imitating the handwriting of the girls in my class. I did not possess this language when I was 15, and attempting to put on makeup in secret without the guidance of my mother or my aunts, and copying the clothing styles of the girls in my high school. I did not have this language when I was 24, with hair down to my waist, wearing my girlfriend’s clothes to work. I did not have this language at 33 years old, before I proposed to my wife, or at 37, when we decided to have a child before we got any older.
I didn’t even know this language at 40, when I finally understood that the days of my life were not going to be many more in number if I did not attempt to find out if the feelings I had been feeling all my life would lead me to a better life.
But I certainly knew the word “transsexual”. I knew the words, “Renée Richards” and “Wendy Carlos”. I knew the word “freak”. I knew the word “mutilation”. I knew the words “liver damage”. I knew the words “shorter life span”. I knew the words “no children”. I knew the word “faggot”.
We need the word “cis”, because those children need to know that their choices aren’t limited, not anymore. Those children need to know that the alternative to “man” isn’t “freak” and the alternative to “woman” isn’t “abomination”. Those children need to know that “abnormal” means “statisically fewer in number”, not “unnatural”.
We need the word “cis”, because all the children of this Earth need to know that “cis” is just one thing you can be, and not what you necessarily are.
