The inner dialogue with Dean in the dream walking episode is actually the most beautiful thing I think I’m gonna cry. And him getting mad about his dad and him being all “I didn’t deserve what he did to me” like, yes Dean, you deserve so much better, so so much better.
if people were serious about being pro trans or an advocate for trans people you would like Jared Leto giving a high stake performance that got recognized by the highest authority of film. But no you are not happy cause you can’t stand a straight cisgendered man has done more to help trans people then you.
Ya’ll fucking bitter basic bitches.
You sound severely cis.
Lol yes. Thank you so much for perpetuating the same transmisogyny that gets trans women killed and assaulted and arrested and sent to men’s prisons and even more shit. Thanks for continuing the idea that trans people just dress up like the “opposite” gender but you can still misgender them and have it be perfectly okay. Thanks for literally doing the exact opposite of anything good for the trans community in general, and direct harm to trans women.
Such a great ally. Really and truly, taking on this one movie role and getting paid and praised for it by every cis person out there means so much more to our community than any of the advocacy and radical as hell existence done by actual real trans folks.
Much thanks. Very ally. Wow.
This show is a treasure. It’s too bad that tumblr spends its time bemoaning the brony phenom and making fun of the fanbase and conveniently forgets that the core material is pretty fantastic and worthy of praise.
I keep noticing awesome themes as I watch this show, and it makes me happy.
This show is awesome. So beautifully awesome. Like, the amount of hurt that I could have avoided if I had been able to see this kind of reaction to not learning the same way as others. Maybe instead of pushing myself to be better than those around me to the point where I’m 22 and burnt the hell out, I’d actually be able to enjoy my life. Hell just seeing it now is hugely important and healing to me.
But I still hate bronies because they’re misogynistic and are actively causing harm to the kids this show is designed for who so badly need shows like this.
Because kids should be able to interact and talk about this show without adult content being everywhere and adult men pushing them out of physical spaces meant for these kids.
Plus sexualizing pony analogs for little girls is creepy and disgusting and I want folks who do that and their art/writing about it 100000 miles away from any and all children.
Liking a show directed at children is fine and good and okay. Taking that show and using your privileged position in society to make your demographic the priority for it is not.
Why do you have to scream right beside me holy fucking shit it hurts and I hate it and it makes me jump and get all pin prickly.
Like it’s a fucking hockey game. You can be excited without letting out loud ass screams.
You wonder why I hate to spend time with you all? This shit is a huge part of it.
people knowing that i’ve cried and people seeing me cry are two different things like i don’t care if people know i’ve cried because like everybody cries but when it comes to people actually being there and seeing me cry in the moment??? no. nope. nah. no thanks. i’m good. no thank you. let’s not
It upsets me so much when people see me cry which just makes me cry harder and it’s an endless cycle of terrible
Yeah it’s really hard! I mean on the one hand it’s absurd that there ought to be a certain vocal range associated with gender when biologically it makes no sense, given most people’s vocal ranges cover a far greater distance than the statistical difference between male/female vocal ranges. And it’s equally absurd that trans people should be obligated to change their voices if they’re at home with their voice as it is. Like all power to trans folks who change their voice and want to do so, but it’s equally legitimate to keep your voice exactly the way it is.
But then again it becomes a huge problem with how people gender you, and it’s incredibly frustrating.
Yes to all of that. Especially since cis folks can have all kinds of voices and not have their gender questioned (even if they may have jokes made about it or whatever, they’re still considered men/women because they’re cis, and therefore “really” their gender), but heaven forbid a trans person has a variation of any kind in their gender expression and it’s an automatic way to misgender them.
This is not the lowest cut shirt I own. And I’m not sure why I’m biting my lip.
I’m actually so excited about how amazingly lovely you look in this picture I can’t put it into words cuz I worry it’ll come off weird and creepy.
But like damn everything about this picture is amazing and you’re amazing and serious outfit/existence inspiration : D
Abortion was not just legal—it was a safe, condoned, and practiced procedure in colonial America and common enough to appear in the legal and medical records of the period. Official abortion laws did not appear on the books in the United States until 1821, and abortion before quickening did not become illegal until the 1860s. If a woman living in New England in the 17th or 18th centuries wanted an abortion, no legal, social, or religious force would have stopped her.
Reminder that records of contraception and abortion exist all the way back to 1550 BCE in ancient Egypt!
This was a really fascinating read. Until the early 19th century, abortion was legal until “quickening,” or when the pregnant person first felt the baby kick - anywhere from 14 to 26 weeks into the pregnancy. Society only began to condemn it when people decided white, middle- to upperclass women weren’t having enough children soon enough in their lives, and when male doctors started taking over traditionally female health care fields, like midwifery.
Yep, shockingly enough, it’s never, ever been about the life of the fetus - only about misogyny, racism, and classism (ableism, too, though the article doesn’t discuss it).
