the worst feeling about trying to draw is being a mediocre artist. You realize you’re not terrible and family and friends who can’t draw at all tell you all the time how amazing you are, but you, as the artist, have seen what amazing really is and you realize that it isn’t you.
oh my fuck god
This is how I feel anytime I re-read anything I write.
Here is a quick reminder to not touch other people without their consent. The gender or sexual orientation of the people involved are irrelevant: don’t do it!!
I don’t give a fuck if you’re a gay man, you have no right to a woman’s body simply because you are not interested in doing anything sexual.
Transmen, too, you do not get to touch a woman without her okay, either.
In general just don’t be an asshole and respect women’s space, boundaries, and bodies, okay.
Please don’t be an asshole!
a world where gaydar is not an excuse to be ignorant and stereotype but is instead a laser gun developed by years of gay labor that fires powerful radiation waves at the cishet opponent setting them on fire. flaming homosexuals? more like flaming heterosexuals. the cishets are on fire. this is anarchy.
a series of complicated social constructs that vary from culture to culture, often even decade to decade within the same culture
fluid and flexible and not necessarily static from the date of birth to the date of death, but sometimes it is, and both are okay
male or female or both or neither or sometimes one or the other or both at the same time or —
And a person’s gender is their gender and none of your business. A person’s gender is what they identify as and that is the only qualifier necessary. It can change from year to year or even hour to hour, and it is still valid. Their pronoun preferences deserve to be respected, even if you don’t understand them. “But zie isn’t a real word” is not a valid excuse. “But they is a PLURAL” is not a valid excuse. “But I see you as” is not a valid excuse. Call a person what they wish to be called. Any reason you can come up with for denying them that basic respect makes you an asshole.
