Dude, no one is taking you seriously, and you look dumber with each response. Please, to save face, stop responding, because I feel you’re going to say something really stupid soon and I’m going to have to own you. 

your hatred for women is so fucking blatant and it seems to take up a good portion of your blog and i really don’t know why you’re sitting here acting like you’re anything other than a vacuous clown but i am totally terrified that you are going to own me with your razor sharp wit

Well, I’m sure if anything you say is true, you could easily provide the evidence that I hate women. I’ll wait…Oh, let me guess, you don’t have any. You guys try the same shit with the Men’s Rights Movement, slandering them for being misogynists yet cannot prove a single occurrence of sexism on their part, and you wonder why people are turning away from feminism. 
Hint: If you want people to believe you, you must provide evidence for your claims.

wow that was easy

"MA’AM" stands for "Men against amazonian masterhood", which everyone should be against. You literally could have spent 20 seconds to google it, but you just couldn’t handle knowing you possibly had something on me and jumped the gun.
Wow, you’re an idiot.

Complicit Narratives

Complicit Narratives

 tw: child abuse, ableism, abuse against autistic people, murder mention

“Coping with adult children’s autism, parents may face ‘least bad’ decisions,” an article for the Washington Post is headlined. It offers “reflections” on the case where two autistic twins were locked in a dank, barren basement. The headline says it all. “Least bad decisions” while locking kids in basements.

This justification - the justification to the abuse and neglect of autistic people - cannot occur any more. There cannot be anymore cries of things heard in the article:

"But it’s possible that, in their minds, this was the least bad way to deal with this,” Bucknam says.

And this, and the Washington Post’s article, just cement that, as Ari Ne’eman of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network writes, “there is no crime so depraved that the autism parent community will not defend it, if… committed by a parent against an autistic child.”

But they are still wrong, if they consider that the “least bad way.” What would be the worst choice? Murder? So locking them in a basement seems okay by comparison? The answer is still no, it is not okay.

We’re human. A lack of services does not translate to abuse or murder for thousands of other families who have people in those families with disability, significant or otherwise. I will not deny the inadequate services across the country, but as Julia Bascom (also of ASAN and the Loud Hands Project) writes, “don’t hold those conversations, those desperately needed conversations, in connection to crimes like these. When you do that, you hold us hostage. When you do that, you say “give us more funding—or the kid gets it!”

The time for those discussions is somewhere else, sometime else when we – the disabled – haven’t just been abused or murdered. The topic at hand is not more services, but on the fact that we are human and that alone should dignify respect and human rights. The topic at hand is that this cannot happen anymore. I know I will write more posts like this, because it will happen again, regardless of my and thousands of others’ insistence that it cannot. These types of statistics, where people with disabilities become crime numbers, need to hit zero, and we will not rest in our fight to get to that number.

___

The Washington Post is doing people with disabilities a disservice – more than that, it is complicit in constructing a narrative that allows our abuse and murder. Write to them Here to tell them that these narratives are not okay. And for anyone reading – as Julia Bascom wrote in the same post, “Please don’t inadvertently help build a narrative where hurting someone with a significant disability is ever, ever “understandable.”

"GOD why does fandom have to make everyone GAY??"

i know right??? why not interpret some people as bi or pan, or asexual, or maybe an aromantic demisexual, or—

lol i’m so sick of this homophobic ass post

(the appropriate response to “UGH why GAYS??” is never “i know right??” i don’t care how clever you think your reasoning is)

You just stated that making all characters gay instead of representing other sexual and gender identities, or even making them gay IF they are canonical something else than hetero- or homosexual is a good thing.

You need to sit down and reconsider what you did there.

lol i didn’t even, and fearmongering about how a particular marginalized group is taking over some domain just by having some representation in it and is going to force ~~everyone~~ in it to be part of that group under some kind of oppressive hegemony on their part that has never existed is classically bigoted

you can't divide by zero

Let’s talk about the ratio of successful surgery fundraisers for trans masculine vs trans feminine people. I personally have seen a handful of successful surgery fundraisers go thru but never even one for any amab person I am aware of. I had a donation post once and the small amount of money it…

300 notes on this post and the situation has not changed. I was recently denied disability on top pf being unable to access obamacare, medical assistance, housing assistance, or any other social service that i desperately need. Let’s talk about the social function of denying care and support systematically to a marginalized group. Let’s talk about how the system is not broken when it is doing exactly what it is designed to do when it excludes bodies like mine. The cumulative weight of being told no a million times on matters of my own bodily integrity and wellbeing. Even if i had insurance i would be fighting every step of the way for inclusive coverage. How is this acceptable. This is a genocide and i won’t stop talking about it until it has ended and there is reparition for me and my sisters.

lets put some money where our mouth is. I need surgery to address the scars, cramping and acute genital discomfort i acquired as an intersex child forced to undergo normalizing procedures the wrong direction. Such injustice so outrage i cant even access basic care that helps w this without coverage (inaccessible) or a bankroll (are u serious i have no income) So if you give a shit and want to help save a poor disabled weirdo queer trans butch out. My paypal is agaglady@gmail.com please share even if you can’t donate. Prove me wrong, give me some hope.

pedophilia for ts

adults with an interest in barely-legal type of situations are basically admitting the only thing stopping them from pursuing and assaulting underage minors is the legality of it. they have no moral compass and feel entitled to young girls. they’re nauseating.

they’ll split hairs between “well, pedophile means this” and use less common words (it is pretty well accepted that pedophilia in the vernacular includes post-pubescent children) because they want to downplay the horrific nature of their own desires.

APA, DSM, LGB

bananapeppers:

here’s the thing about the American Psychological Association’s declassifying same-sex desire:

following a campaign of repeated protests and a presentation of evidence to the APA by the Gay Liberation Front and other LGB activists, the APA removed Homosexuality from the DSM-II in 1973, but diagnoses aimed at lesbians and bi women and gay and bi men remained in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders:

  • with the declassification of Homosexuality came the creation of Sexual Orientation Disturbance, which was later rebranded as Ego-Dystonic Homosexuality. it was removed for the publication of the DSM-III-R in 1987, but the World Health Organization lists “ego-dystonic sexual orientation” in the ICD-10.
  • currently, there’s a subtype of obsessive-compulsive disorder marked by questioning one’s sexual orientation—sexual orientation OCD (SO-OCD), or homosexual OCD (HOCD).
  • borderline personality disorder had a similar criterion until the DSM-IV.

(while the BPD criterion covered questioning and internalized homophobia, many professionals went/go above and beyond, construing a stable bisexual orientation as symptomatic. e.g., the authors of I Hate You—Don’t Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality released another book in 2004, Sometimes I Act Crazy: Living with Borderline Personality Disorder, whose BPD checklist mentions bisexuality by name [12].)

if I’ve had symptoms of a cold/sinus infection for two weeks that means I should probably see a gp or something, right? I forget how to deal with lower-level med problems

If your getting a cold. Put jello in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Add honey. Gelatin coats the throat and prevents any more infection and honey fights off the bacteria

this is probably the least useful medical information I have been handed by this shitstorm of misinformation in the form of a social media website in the last four years
