The way straight men talk when they don’t think anyone else is around is fucking terrifying.
#so many trans women FUCKING DESPISE men #like #really really hate men #this is why
see, this is what I shoulda said in the original post. She made it better.
I’m gonna delete the original now cause all those notes are annoying me.
Seriously. Absolutely fucked up. I never thought about this, but wow, cis women don’t even know. This makes a lot more sense now about why cis women are sometimes genuinely surprised to hear my serious criticism of a man for the way he acts around me (or what I easily can tell from his social behavior.) “Really?” Because this experience has been part of my life pretty much since I started grade school, I never consciously realized that others didn’t know what men are like.
I’m also now realizing that my aversion to men that I had so much trouble explaining and weird feelings around expressing now make total sense.
right? like there’d be these guys and cis women would be like ‘oh, he’s so sweet’ and i’d be like…. what?? that guy??
i mean, ive got a whole lot more reasons to hate men than this, but this is a huge part of it. most women really don’t realize, like, how much collective solidarity men have in not judging each other for this shit and keeping it secret and everything. and hell, there’s been a few times where i’ve specifically tried to warn cis women about certain guys and of course they didn’t believe me.
but, no, seriously, cis women: guys are way more awful than you think. that sweet, friendly guy? you don’t even want to know what he says about you when you’re not around.
So much this.
Like, cis woman think that when we say stuff like “when you are a trans woman, you get to see how cruel men really are” that we are only talking about when they are enacting transmisogyny on us.
And while that would give insight, by then we already know how horrible they are. When we are closeted and parsed as other men, they are completely open about how fucking disgusting they are.
Another reason why trans women being male-socialized is such bullshit. Being around men like this doesn’t force us to internalize positive messages about men, we internalize the negative we hear about women and we are scared.
My father and someone who has helped me a lot in AA happen to be ones I get these messages from regularly.
agreeing with this so much.
Repeating for emphasis: “Being around men like this doesn’t force us to internalize positive messages about men, we internalize the negative we hear about women and we are scared.”
this is why I’m functionally a lesbian.
ANNE FRANK WAS BI
HOW DID NO ONE EVER TELL ME THIS
I FEEL FUCKING ROBBED
Excuse me while I memorize this list
I keep trying to tell people this but nobody believes me.
haha yea they edited bits of her diary out which included anne expressing attraction to girls and it’s even been banned from schools because of this!! fun fact
“Unconsciously, I had these feelings even before I came here. Once when I was spending the night at Jacque's, I could no longer restrain my curiosity about her body, which she'd always hidden from me and which I'd never seen. I asked her whether, as proof of our friendiship, we could touch each other's breasts. Jacque refused. I also had a terrible desire to kiss her, which I did. Every time I see a female nude, such as the Venus in my art history book, I go into ecstasy. Sometimes I find them so exquisite I have to struggle to hold back my tears. If only I had a girlfriend!"
Tadaaaaaa~ first character !
Ok, so she’s named Ditzah, wich is an hebrew name (meaning “joy”). And she is a Gorgon ! She is 16 and scales have started to take a good part of her body (she has a lot on her legs).
Growing scales doesn’t hurt that much because it’s a very slow process, but god it scratches ! The areas of her skin wich are slowly turning into scales tend to be red due to the scratching but also the fact that it’s growing.
Her little snakes tend to have their own mind at the beginning, it takes a lot of pratice to have control of them (wich is why she goes to a support group for gorgons, with yoga and a lot of relaxation) but in the end they’ll be a complete part of herself ! They to bite off her hair, making it shorter and shorter and slowly making place for her coming snakes. But with no control over them, they tend to also bite things that are near, like her friends and people on the bus. Awkward yea. They also sotimes keep her awake at night, poking her face tehehe
She has that kind of very peppy perosnnality, always up for everything, jogging on saturday mornings, excited about a new chapter in science !
I hope you like her. :3 ♥
(The first time I drew her I had these beautifules ladies in mind and decided to found that photo again while drawing this !)
She is just too cute, oh my gods! And I love the way the snakes are biting her hair to make room for other snakes. <3
Whaaaaa??? Lesbians can live past 17??? OUTLANDISH
it’s a trailer for a really great movie pls watch it oh my gosh
omg that looks so sweet
Sometimes I see movie trailiers/gifs/wev and I almost avoid hopping over to Rated R to check on whether I can see them or not, because never seeing them might be less heartbreaking than knowing that I can’t.
THIS ONE’S CLEAR THOUGH
