Who taught me to suck in my stomach,
or my cheeks?
Who told me to stand with my legs apart
and my hips thrust back
to create the illusion of a gap
between my thighs?
Who made me believe that the most beautiful part of me
is my negative space?
the thing is though i dont think i’ve ever met a single dude who genuinely made an effort not to be misogynistic but still actually takes offense when a woman says “urg, men”
and pretty much every white person who is able to recognise and unpack their privilege gets what i mean when i say “urg, white people”
and straight people who are legit supporters do not get huffy when i say “urg, straight people”
and like im cis, but when trans people say “urg, cis people” im not horribly wounded
because when you’re aware of the system you also understand that it’s not about you
and i understand that nobody hates me for being cis, they hate the power that i have over them because im cis (or light-skinned, or able-bodied, etc)
like remember that quote that was like “no, i didn’t say all white people, but since that’s what you took away from it, yes, all white people”? pretty much, the more angry and confrontational you are about blanket comments, the more those comments are directed at you
which makes them a really convenient and effective thing
how to piss off a northerner in 1 simple step
CAN I SAY THIS IS SO TRUE.
Like just reading this actually made me angry.
ppl who complain about bands changing their sound are the literal worst like what did u want them to do?? make the same record 6 times in a row???
don’t talk about tumblr outside of tumblr not because it’s some cool elite website but because it’s fucking embarrassing
No, it’s because we can’t have the people on the outside (i.e. people who aren’t on Tumblr) to find out about this colourful, magical world we log into multiple times a day
see this is what I’m talking about
Robots getting really concerned when a human yawns and then another human does as well and wondering if this is some sort of group signal that they need to respond to so they just awkwardly go “aaaaaa” to try and imitate them.
Robots jumping and getting really scared when a human sneezes and rushing over to check on them “DID YOU JUST BLOW A FUSE ARE YOU ALRIGHT DO YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE”
Robots getting all worried when their human is blushing because “your surface temperature has increased and your pigment is off are you alright?”
Robots trying to understand human bodies (◕ω◕✿)
Or that you’re making it up/being hysterical/oversensitive/whatever. Mental illness is real, and it’s hard.
IF YOU BLAME YOUNG GIRLS FOR NOT KNOWING HOW TO REACT TO UNWELCOME SEXUAL ADVANCES FROM ADULT MEN I WILL DESTROY YOU, I WILL ERADICATE EVERY PROTON THAT COMPRISES YOUR WORTHLESS BODY, HOW DARE YOU

Alright, I’m done raging, thus done with this for the foreseeable future.
I guess this gives a bit of hint into my Cecil and Kevin headcanon.
Got the opposites going: White eyes vs black eyes, pale vs tan (they seem to have radio shows at opposite times of the day?), Night Vale’s purple vs Desert Bluffs’ yellow. Both towns share the charcoal and white colors, so they both get charcoal vests and the same white tie (One of them mentioned their ties being the same in episode 19a/19b). Why white hair? Iunno.
I like the third eye for both of them in the shape of their respective towns’ eye symbol, but I like em more as abilities/spectres rather than actual eyes in their foreheads.
I really want a showdown on air between them. Really reeeeaaallllyyyyy want it.
