I fucking love you, Tumblr. I know I’ve been all distant and aloof lately… and like we don’t talk and I never call or return your texts… but I fucking love you, man. I love you. You’re always there for me, you know? At 4am when I’m supposed to be writing a paper, during practicum when I’m supposed to be submitting clinical notes, even now when I’m supposed to be finishing a presentation. You don’t care, you don’t judge, you just welcome me back with open arms and open dashboard. I just… I want you to know that even though I’m that douche friend who totally ignores you until I’m bored or I want something from you, I really appreciate you. Seriously. Thanks, dude.
straight people aren’t oppressed for being straight
whoops looks like you forgot how the world works
sorry about your ignorance
Your commentary had and still has very little to do with oppression (which I am most certainly not denying) and a great deal to do with generalizing and assuming things about the people you ironically claim are generalizing and assuming things about someone else.
Whoops looks like you forgot that you don’t win a Get Out of Being an Asshole Free card just because you’re passively pointing out someone else’s oppressive behavior.
Sorry about your hypocritical commitment to the structure of double standards you seem so awfully upset about.
Nevertheless, if you feel I am a safe place at which to spew your anger and your hate, by all means, spew away. I am, thank goodness, sure enough of myself to stand against your pillar of self-righteous prattling. Let it out. Shhhh, let it all out.
If, however, by some miraculous turn of events you would actually like to have an intelligent conversation about the flaws in your (what I am very generously calling an) argument as it is currently presented, step the fuck up. Ask box to the right.
queer people shipping queer couples often do it because there is a lack of representation
straight people shipping queer couples often do it because gays are a game to them
there’s a difference
also they hypersexualize us so they can masturbate to us
while reducing us to only cissexist/heterosexist stereotypes
…Oh my goodness. Please stop. Stop drawing hypothetical lines between groups of people. Stop buying in to the hypothetical lines other people draw. Stop with the us v. them. Just say no.
If you do not want to ship queer couples, don’t ship them. If you do want to ship queer couples, you go right ahead on. But do not presume to know and label and explain the motivations of others and clarify how it is or is not ok for two people to exhibit the exact same behavior (based on some allegedly inherent personal trait)*. No. Not based on race, not based on gender, not based on sexuality.
* Single possible exception: scientific peer-reviewed research based theoreticizing
Ship and let ship. Love is love. Let love in.
For future reference, below is a list of differences between “straight” people and “queer” people:
1. Sexual orientation
me every time ruby/red transforms back from her wolf form (via -bawsten)
….also me every time I see Dianna Agron.
That awesome moment when your girlfriend ships it just as much as you do…
We interrupt your (ir)regularly scheduled scribbles for the following very important letter:
Dear Dianna Agron,
First and foremost, congratulations on your entire existence. Secondly, thank you for providing me with the scribble material necessary to lure my future trophy wife into my nefarious clutches (fyi tho I can still be immediately available if things somehow don’t work out with the chele). Now if you would please just nudge her in the direction of accepting my super romantic proposal***, that would be wonderful. Much appreciated!
ps: you will be our wedding photographer y/y?
*** “… Can’t you just marry me? What else are you even really doing with your life???” #charming
