"At 5 you’re too young because 5 year olds believe they’re superman. At 11 you’re too young because puberty hasn’t set in yet. At 16 you’re too young because puberty hormones mess with everyone. At 18 you’re too young for the same reason. And after 18 you’re too old because if you were really trans you would have said something by now.What people really want is for trans people to stop existing so we stop challenging the common, incorrect idea that men and women are as separate and uncrossable as if they were separate species."

"Flat adverts that may be breaking the law"

syntheticaudio:

What a crock of shit.

Do you know why people advertise like this? Because if you’re not white, straight and cisgender, there’s a huge chance you will have some sort of issue looking for a flat. Even down to safety issues. If people didn’t feel like they were unable to get accommodation because of who they are, there would be no need for adverts like this.

I ended up in a very lucky position where I had a friend who needed a flatmate. I’ve not had to properly search for a flat as a not-straight, transgender man. The idea of having to do that terrifies me. I’ve had to live in a flat with two homophobes before, which was scary and ended with one of them breaking into my room while I was away. Not to mention the verbal abuse I got off them, and the fact I had something thrown at me because one of them accused me of trying to hit on them.

So great, crack down on these all you want. Just know you’re putting people’s safety at risk, and that’s despicable.

The Top 6 Reasons Why You Should Hate Dan Savage

fuckyeahtranspride:

forgetpolitics:

1. Dan Savage hates trans people and uses transphobic slurs.

“Children have a right to some stability and constancy from the adults in their lives. Perhaps I’m a transphobic bigot, but I honestly think waiting a measly 36 months to cut your dick is a sacrifice any father should be willing to make for his 15-year-old son. Call me old-fashioned.

Unfortunately, your ex wasn’t willing to make that sacrifice (selfish tranny!), or it never occurred to him to make that sacrifice (stupid tranny!)…. If your son can’t deal with having his dad/mom/whatever around right now, support him and tell his dad/mom/whatever to leave the two of you alone for the time being.”

2. Dan Savage believes that bisexuals do not and should not exist.

“I’m not saying bi guys are bad people, or they don’t make great one-night stands. Bushes, bathhouses, and sleazy gay bars are crawling with bi guys. But if a guy wants more, he’ll have an easier time getting it from another gay man.”

3. Dan Savage has admonished women for not putting up with their partner’s sexual desires and has criticized female rape survivors’ stories.

There the guy was, boned for you, and he was brave enough to put his desires out there, to make himself vulnerable (which is what the ladies are always saying they want, right?), and you lobbed the ol’ “What?!?” bomb at him and made him feel like a freak. Is it any wonder that he quickly moved on to “other things” and, one would hope, better sex partners?”

I’m extremely sorry that you were raped, DRARS, although your baseless accusations of rape make me doubt you when you claim to be a survivor of rape. The feminist bloggers are going to accuse me of thought crimes: If a woman says she was raped then, by God, she was raped. (Tell it to the lacrosse team.) But if my reaction to your letter is a thought crime, I can only plead entrapment: I wouldn’t have had these illegal thoughts if you hadn’t sent me such a stupid letter in the first place… Finally, DRARS, I hereby withdraw my consent for you to read Savage Love. If you continue to read my column against my will, well, we all know what word to apply to your actions.”

4. Dan Savage thinks that racist gay white men are less of a threat to African-Americans than homophobic African-Americans are to gay people.

EDIT: The quote below is indeed Dan’s response to Prop 8 and black homophobia, I have added some more of the senseless shit that has spewed out of his mouth so that no one will be confused as to how much of an asshole he is:

“I do know this, though: I’m done pretending that the handful of racist gay white men out there—and they’re out there, and I think they’re scum—are a bigger problem for African Americans, gay and straight, than the huge numbers of homophobic African Americans are for gay Americans, whatever their color…I’ll eat my shorts if gay and lesbian voters went for McCain at anything approaching the rate that black voters went for Prop 8.”

EDIT: Here are some more lovely gems from our resident asshole Dan Savage on his rampant hatred for everything not white, male, and gay:

5. Dan Savage thinks asexuals are secretly “fags”.

“I appreciate the feedback, Stephanie, and I’m sorry I offended you. But… um… I couldn’t help but think, as I read your letter, that your boyfriend is either a fool or a fag. But if it works for you guys—if a romantic relationship devoid of sexual attraction and activity works for you guys—then it works for you guys. Who am I to argue with success?”

6. Dan Savage is fatphobic.

“First off, LARDASS, you neglected to include a sign-off, forcing me to create one for you. I tried to create one that captured the spirit and tone of your letter, and I think I did pretty well… I am thoroughly annoyed at having my tame statements of fact—being heavy is a health risk; rolls of exposed flesh are unsightly—characterized as ‘hate speech.’”

EDIT: I’ve got a lot of requests for citations, so here they are. They get even worse, believe me — the sexual kink that Savage admonishes the woman for was because he believed it was totally ok for her boyfriend wanting to put his nutsack into her vagina. Because that is a totally unsurprising sexual desire to request for.

TRIGGER WARNING: These articles contain transphobic comments/slurs, victim-blaming, racism, hatred of all kinds and colors

1. Transphobia

2. Biphobia (Here’s another where he basically blames Bisexuals for their own oppression….yeah.)

3. Sexism (kink) / Sexism (victim-blaming)

4. Racism & Prop 8 (Here’s another bullshit article he did on the same topic)

5. Acephobia

6. Fat-shaming (Here’s a rant where he says that Iowa should ban fat marriage instead of banning gay marriage because that totally makes more sense)

Dan Savage is one bigoted motherfucker.

Things I learned from TV.

super-eklectic1:

dumbthingswhitepplsay:

  1. All Asians look like John Cho.
  2. Asians know everything. Seriously, everything. And they can probably fly in secret and they just don’t tell us.
  3. If an Asian person tells you to do something, for the love of god, do it. NEVER cross them.
  4. Black people are all hard. Every one. They’re hard as fuck. You can’t break them with a hammer.
  5. Despite being really hard, black people tend to die very easily and repeatedly.
  6. Despite black people dying really easily, cops still need to shoot them and/or taze them and/or tackle them in large groups to the floor.
  7. Attractive white men will rarely suspect suspicious attractive white women. The only people who will are black or latino people and other attractive white women.
  8. God is black, but only a tame kind of black.
  9. All black people look alike.
  10. White women are very delicate and special.
  11. Despite white women being very delicate and special, they often seem to live through entire shows.
  12. Despite white women having higher survival rates than probably anyone else, everyone falls over themselves to protect them, almost as if they are in danger.
  13. Black people know all other black people. All of them. Seriously every single one.
  14. Most Latinos just look like white people.
  15. The ones that don’t are very, very HARRRRRRD.
  16. Muslims and Middle Easterners who aren’t completely Americanized down to the tiniest degree are barbaric and horrific. But at least you can count on your Americanized ones to side with white people on just how barbaric they are.
  17. Brown people love the shit out of arranged marriage. In fact, they are all arranged married. Even ones who have lived in America for several generations. Or sometimes they play a doctor (who just isn’t arranged married yet).
  18. Darker-skinned black people all come from the skreets. Suburban upper or middle class black people are all light skinned. Very light skinned.
  19. Non-white trans women only hold two jobs; prostitute and casualty of prostitution.
  20. Lesbians are all white.
  21. If a trans woman isn’t a prostitute, she’s definitely white.
  22. Trans men are also all white.
  23. Gay men are mostly white except for black guys who share their massive black dicks.
  24. The few massive-black-dick-sharing gay guys are all on the down-low.
  25. There may be a few secret queer Latinos.
  26. Gay Asians don’t exist. Gay Indigenous definitely don’t exist.
  27. Indigenous people are werewolves, or they teach white people lots of things and send them on spirit journeys and stuff using magical native potions. Also spirit animals.
  28. Despite PoC having so much magic and giving white people so much education, they always need to be saved by white people in the end. What the heck are they using all this magical education for????

Privilege Speaks! (trigger warning for discussion of rape, violence, and talking to a privilege denying dick)

What I see in popular culture, and even in some people I know

steppingoncracks:

TW FOR HOMOPHOBIA, SLUT SHAMMING, TRANSPHOBIA

Is this wave of people just raving about Gay Rights and Gay Equality and the LGBTQ community.

They take things like New York legalizing same sex marriage as this huge victory (I believe it to be an amazing step and a victory). And they view programs like Glee and super stars like Lady Gaga as these safe heavens for queer youth. And I just don’t buy it.

Is it awesome that on one of the popular television series in the world we saw two boys kiss? Yes, it is. Is it cool that there seems to be no “Q” or “T” at all? 

Is it cool that Lady Gaga is hailing Gay equality? Yeah, that is. It it cool for her to appropriate others cultures? Nope. It is cool for her to make transphobic remarks? Nah.

I know acceptance and equality are all cool subjects right now. But There are so many people being pushed aside still. How about maybe the first time a Trans Woman was showed in their full self in popular media it was used as a site gag. 

How about the ever lasting amount of Slut Shamming? Sexism? Racism? We see from friends and family. and police. and governors. and politicians.

Why can’t we convince people who are jumping on the equality bandwagon to understand that Queer kids are not the only ones being oppressed and marginalized?
