so my mum told me that as a kid she would peel an apple and throw the peel over her shoulder, and the peel would take the shape of the first letter of her future spouse. naturally, i decided to do it and
i’m fucking crying
it says ‘no.’
it literally says NO.
oh my god
with a period, end of story.
nitlon asked: paige i'm sorry if this is a stupid question and obviously feel free not to answer it but could you explain the difference between trans and trans* and why the asterisk is no good? i know (i think?) it has something to do with nonbinary exclusion but i'm not sure and google is being unhelpful??
this isn’t a stupid question at all! it has more to do with the over inclusion of white nb folk and exclusion of trans women, tbh.
- someone asked me, not too long ago why/wherefore trans* is transmisogynist…
- The case against “trans*” & the politics of erasure
- someone sent me a question a while back about the arguments around including the asterisk after trans
- so lets talk about the fucking asterisk
it’s also harmful to indigenous non cis folk, tho i cant find good source for that. also my apologies bc i have noticed that most if not all those link are sourced to white ppl and this more affects twoc. if there are other links ppl would like to share or viewpoints. please feel free.
also i super appreciate that you tried to find this stuff before asking about it, thank you!
Am I the only one who dislikes the word “queer”?
idk it sounds wrong
I hate it. I hate being called it by other GSRM people.
It implies that I’m ‘abnormal’ and I don’t like it being used on me specifically. When people call me that I want to politely rip their throats out.
I just feel weird when I hear it, idk, I don’t like people labeling me as “queer” or smth
yup yup all of this
Like, I don’t even like to label myself as “gay” anymore, mostly because using all or nothing words like straight and gay miscommunicate what we’ve come to understand sexuality to actually be like: a spectrum. I prefer to use language that accurately describes things, which is why most of the time I say that I prefer guys or something.
penis is such an ugly word we should call them dingly-dangly-diddly-ding-dongs
Love it when a girl plays with my dingly-dangly-diddly-ding-dong.
I fucking choked on my tea
Next you’ll be choking on my dingly-dangly-diddly-ding-dong.
