P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your “gender identity” on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.
I think this ridiculous dichotomy that “tumblr” and “the real world” are two different things is so fucking stupid. As though what people say and do on the internet isn’t real.
And so what if it’s important to people to create a space where they can feel safe and comfortable in a world that doesn’t give a shit about those things? Is that so wrong, to want a break from people being constantly awful? And is it wrong to respond to people’s ignorance harshly when, in the real world, people with oppressed identities are forced to just accept the bullshit all the time, for fear of physical, emotional, or political retaliation?
Plus, I put my preferred pronouns in my email signature.
tl;dr: fuck off.
^ THANK YOU for saying what I wanted to say when I saw this post earlier, but I was too tired to elaborate.
Interesting to note that while a history of animal cruelty is widely accepted to be a link with becoming a serial killer, the link between cruelty towards women and killing women is still up for debate. If a guy abuses a cat and then shoots women we say "we should have seen it coming that guy was nuts", but if abuses women and then shoots women we say "we had no way of seeing it coming that guy was a perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human”.
i love catfish so much because they act like theyre fbi agents or something when theyre really just using reverse google image search
i thought you meant the animal and let me tell you that was a wild minute of me trying to figure out the psychology of fish thinking they’re federal law enforcement
