Light’s dialogue in Death Note is SO much better if you imagine it as an OKCupid profile.

They/Their' as a singular pronoun is correct English.

Stop excusing your transphobia by saying it isn’t. You’re wrong.

"I do it for me"

Oh really? You know, I do wonder how likely it would have been for you to have begun shaving off natural body hair if you hadn’t been informed from day one that natural hair on women is “gross” and that this was the beauty standard to aspire to.

The “I do it for me” choice-y feminism thing is bogus and please dear everything, apply critical thinking as to why it is we do the things we do.

I really really really love this post because as a woman who does shave I’m all over this. I don’t shave because I want to. I shave because I’m afraid of social backlash. Point blank. I wish I was strong enough and bold enough to face the criticism, but I’m not. I applaud all women who don’t shave and I hope one day I can say fuck it and just not shave. I think though once we all stop fooling ourselves with the ‘I do it for me’ thing, maybe we can have a real change with this stigma…you don’t ‘do it for you’ you would have never ‘done it for you’ if generations hadn’t told you that shaving was the ‘appropriate’ thing to do.

Sorry this is actual bullshit.

TMI time!  Stop reading if you don’t want to hear gross details about my pubic hair.

Yes, I shave and/or trim for me.  I cannot actually just let my bush grow free and it’s not because ~*society taught me that it’s unseemly and gross*~.  It gets caught in shit all the damn time and it’s painful; I cannot put any goddamn thing near my vag without it getting caught up in the hair and pulling and tugging.  On top of that, I have really sensitive skin that’s already prone to psoriasis (though not down there so far, thank God) and infected hair follicles.  Vaginal discharge gets caught in the hair when it’s long and just sits there, irritating my skin and eventually infecting hair follicles.  This is also very painful and not fun.

So I trim as close as I possibly can.  I would just shave, believe me, but that whole area is also really prone to ingrown hairs which, surprise surprise, get infected and painful.

As for my legs, yes most of the time I shave because of reasons I cannot prove weren’t just taught to me by society.  But also I really like wearing tights and leggings and occasionally wear stockings for costuming purposes and pretty much anything with elastic in it — including stretchy jeans — is going to tug on my leg hairs.  So again, I do sometimes actually shave for personal reasons.

And I shave my armpits (not often but that’s mostly because it doesn’t grow that fast) because I think it’s gross and I can’t properly apply deodorant when it’s too long.

In short: Fuck Off.  You have actually no idea what the fuck you’re talking about.

Wait but hear me out

  • ravenclaws that hate studying and procrastinate every assignment
  • hufflepuffs that curse like sailors and that look like they could definitely fuck you up if they wanted to
  • slytherin that are really nice and sweet who constantly ask how your days going and if you need help with something
  • gryffindor that are scared to kill the spider in the corner of their rooms because who knows if that shit can fly or if it’ll attack you

ahhh yeah i feel u, im femme genderqueer afab. theres just a lot of people out there who are transmisogynistic like “only afab people matter, amab trans people are gross!” so i thought id make sure thats not what u were about

No problem!  I can see where it could be concerning.

Especially being posted by someone who was sure they were cis up until a few months ago and probably made a total of three posts about Personal Gender Feelings (tm) but has otherwise made no real effort to identify themselves as Probably Not Cis (tm).

The Woman From Italy is Mount Vesuvius: A deconstruction of the terrifying poem

flikky:

Back in January I posited the theory that The Woman From Italy in the Welcome to Night Vale episode of the same name was actually the personification of Mount Vesuvius and promised a full fledged essay on the subject that I never got around to writing.

This isn’t going to be an essay, per se, so much as it’s going to be a line-by-line interpretation of the Woman From Italy poem.

Trigger warning: Some links contain graphic descriptions of volcano eruptions and images of the plaster casts made in Pompeii.

OH

MY GODD

This is especially interesting when you consider the repeated insistence that there’s no such things as mountains.

Perhaps speaking of “The Woman From Italy” was the only way to warn of a possible coming eruption without outright admitting that mountains and volcanoes exist?

Alternatively, perhaps in the world of night vale, some mountains and volcanoes really DO NOT exist, but have indeed become god-like creatures who walk among us and cause destruction. Dana did speak of huge warriors, and that mountains exist. Who’s to say she didn’t mean the same thing when she spoke of them? (Yes, I know she walked on a mountain… this is where my theory is stretched a little :P …soooome mountains started walking? :P  )

Oh shit, I didn’t even think of that!

I mean I had gone with the idea that the broadcast was essentially reporting on the tremors that COULD be a precursor to an eruption and the back and forth was the split attitudes among citizens — either it is actually foretelling an eruption and it’s time to flee, or it’s just a tremor and nothing to worry about.

But yeah, you’re right!  If the citizens of Night Vale don’t believe in mountains, there’s no reason to think that they’d believe in volcanoes either!

Even better!

I’d still read a comic about lesbian lady Lex Luthor too, tho, tbh

isn’t it kind of bad to headcanon every lady character as afab tho? like shouldn’t there be some amab trans women representation in there

Sure if I wasn’t just making a silly joking post in direct response to the idea that the only way to trans is to never dress/present anything near your assigned gender because it creates a situation where Enby O’Brian was amab and likes to wear dudely clothes but or Trans Dude Diorio was afab and likes to wear skirts but they feel uncomfortable doing so because 1) people will misgender them, and 2) some of the trans community will pull the Not Trans Enough/Not Really Trans card because we can’t get over the idea that clothes and fashion are gendered and if you don’t wear the clothes associated with your gender then you’re Doing Gender Wrong.

I have actually literally seen someone decide an afab enby person was not actually trans and clearly must be cis because they presented femme and I am not about that, especially since that is the direction I’m generally barreling towards, personally.

Also as much as I adore the few characters out there who are afab and share my general attitude of “*SHRUG????????*” towards their gender in canon, it would be really very nice if at least ONE of them liked wearing skirts and makeup and heels and sparkles instead of the shapeless boxes that make up most dudely flavored clothing sections.

But it was easier to make a quick gag post than write all that out.

For the record, I don’t actually intend to do anything with any of my headcanons except maybe private RP’s with my fiance and I don’t actually blanket-headcanon anyone wrt anything.

Except maybe the Bat-family … All of them are amab as far as I’m concerned, except for Steph and sometimes Cass, and Bruce is the only one who’s consistently cis.  I am actually really really devoted to the idea of amab, trans woman Babs, and amab nonbinary and/or gender-fluid Dick; and my fiance’s effectively sold me on amab nonbinary and/or gender-fluid Tim, and also afab trans man Tim.

But yeah I PROMISE I AM NOT ACTUALLY PRETENDING OTHER FLAVORS OF TRANS DON’T EXIST NOT EVEN IN MY HEAD?????  It’s just the old “Boy it would be nice to have some representation” song and dance.
