I hate when people act like genderqueer is not a valid identity just because it’s a “new” thing or because the word genderqueer is a relatively new term. BECAUSE I MEAN OBVIOUSLY nothing can exist until the language is created to describe it, AMIRITE? I mean we all know that people didn’t exist until the first word for “people” was created except OH NO WAIT THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL. In real life, descriptions don’t create things; things exist and then the description follows. Eventually. Maybe not for a long time. That doesn’t mean that the people that existed before the term was coined somehow didn’t exist. That’s just ridiculous.
And I mean, even if people with non-binary genders only started existing in relatively recent times, that wouldn’t invalidate their genders. All gender identities are valid.
Not “both” gender identities.
Not “either” gender identity.
ALL GENDER OR AGENDER IDENTITIES.
EVERY GENDER OR AGENDER IDENTITY.
ALL ALL ALL IN OR AROUND OR OUTSIDE OF THE INFINITE GENDER-THING.
I’ve tried Googling it but I can’t remember enough of the wording to find it. I believe it was a semi-long bullet list, outlining some problems that come up with allies and I think some inherent problems with allyship as well. I think the last time I saw it was at least four months ago so I don’t know if it’s disappeared or not, but it was a really good post and I want to read it again.
I’m making fried tofu at 5 am.
Why don’t I have more friends, seriously.
And it seems like everyone wants tall guys when describing their dream partner. What about the short dudes? They didn’t do anything wrong.
Come to me, short men. I’ll kiss you on your forehead. Or something.
I honestly feel like this stems from the idea that womyn aren’t ‘allowed’ by society to take up as much space as men are, so a lot of girls (or people who have been socialized as girls) who date guys feel really self-conscious about the idea of dating a guy who’s smaller than them in some way. I know I used to be terrified at the idea, because I knew dating a guy that was smaller than me (in body size or height) would make me feel bigger, but once I challenged the idea that being bigger was somehow bad for me as a female-bodied person (‘cause it’s NOT bad!) I completely got over it.
And I mean, I don’t want to make generalizations, but I really think most of it is somehow based in that. I mean preferences are one thing, but SO many girls say that they won’t even consider dating a guy that’s shorter than them and I really do feel like it stems from the bullshit gender roles of how men should be bigger and womyn should be smaller.
DOBBY’S SOCK I’M FUCKING IMPATIENT
Literally everyone is getting a cooler Pottermore username than I did. ALL OF MINE WERE JUST SO BAD.
WAIT WHAT IF IT DOESN’T WORK
HOW DO I TELL IF IT WORKED
i realize this doesnt make sense just disregard this
I’m 100% convinced that the Pottermore times are fake and are meant to throw people off AND I’M BAD AT RIDDLES SO WHY AM I EVEN TRYING
I don’t fucking know how to catch spiders. Most other bugs I can catch, but spiders are too fucking fast and I’m convinced all of them are severely poisonous so I’m too afraid to get near them. BUT THERE ARE TOO MANY FUCKING SPIDERS IN MY HOUSE. THERE’S ONE ON THE FLOOR RIGHT NOW. And obviously I don’t want to kill it so i just try to pretend it’s not there but I mean if I just leave it surely it will inevitably die sometime because it’s stuck in the house so I feel like it’s just as bad but I just don’t know how to catch it. D:
catching so I can put it outside I mean
