This blog is a mix of body mod stuff, political outrage, general (often macabre) art, and occasionally other things that catch my interest. I try to provide sources for most things; feel free to message me if I make a mistake in that regard. I can be found on skype; feel free to ask me for my skype username.
I try to tag trigger warnings. If I've missed one that impacts you, let me know, and I'll make the effort to learn it. Genderqueer. Neutral pronouns for now, or I will slap your shit.

alright so ive seen this compilation post, uploaded by batmanisagatewaydrug around a million fucking times and i’m reuploading it instead of giving it more notes because it’s already at like 220k or something ridiculous like that and i’d just like to say

  1.  theroguefeminist isnt exactly known for phrasing things well & is not always well liked among sj people. what i think they were trying to say is that it’s important to recognize valid parts of people’s identities, as the original post seemed to endorse the “I don’t see you as (x)” sort of mentality
  2. i call bullshit on the messages. OP just wanted notes at the expense of feminism
  3. thebitterfrenchcanadian’s faq confirms that this is a joke and you are all gullible
  4. wolfstirfry’s sidebar says ‘that post was a joke’ on it
  5. it’s not anyone’s responsibility to educate people who are hurting them, and the commenter was making the point that OP was unlikely to have experienced that
  6. troll anon. see use of vuv and incorrect understanding of cultural appropriation
  7. emeralddragoness has deleted but honestly i think this boils down to what a person is comfortable with themselves and OP was rlly rude in response
  8. troll anon again
  9. the way this is full of buzzwords and the cutesy emote at the end makes me think its a troll post although dating, as it doesnt exist in nature, is technically a social construct (not that that’s a bad thing)
  10. this was posted by a literal neo-nazi white supremacist, formerly known as sophia-kaminski. she’s literally the furthest thing from social justice you can get. also, a note to the commenter, race is not just skin color

conclusion: tumblr is gullible as hell and will take any excuse to hate minorities who are sticking up for themselves

I’m grossed out by the kind of stuff tumblr does to its users over an extended period of time

Grammar and punctuation is completely lost on some people, to the point where their posts are unreadable and irritating

And tumblr fosters and feeds this incredible narcissism and need to impress people- people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Anonymous said: Tbh this new idea that loads of nb people are just "teenage girls trying to be cool" (which is not true at all and the teenage girl part reeks of misogyny) kind of reminds me of the whole "teenage girls pretend to be bi to be cool" myth and think that saying that helps the real bisexuals/real trans people™ when all it really does is make people doubt their identities and feel insecure about them.

P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your “gender identity” on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.

The more often I see this piece of junk post, the more patently arrogant and worthless it strikes me as being. No trigger warnings, huh? So I guess you live in some alternate universe where films and music albums are not rated on content and warnings of the type of content provided along with those ratings? Where nude beaches are not explicitly identified as being nude beaches and laws about indecent exposure don’t exist, so that people who for whatever reason are vulnerable to such things as nudity remain unprotected while in public? Where pubs are not blatantly recognisable as pubs and restaurants don’t keep alcoholic beverages on a separate menu, thus leaving alcoholics and other people for whom alcohol is triggering at constant risk of exposure to their trigger? I could go on a while yet on this topic, but if you haven’t gotten the point by now, you’re probably too narcissistic/too much of an awful person to ever get the point.

And wearing a nametag with one’s gender identity is “laughable”, is it? Strange, because it strikes me that acknowledging and respecting someone’s gender identity is a part of the basic human decency that everyone deserves. If you laugh at someone for preemptively providing a way for you to know what their gender identity is, so that you don’t misgender them when you start speaking, I would posit the problem is less with them having done that, and more with you being an awful human being who lacks even minimal empathy and consideration for others. You talk about the “real world”, but newsflash, in order to face that very “real world” of which you speak, and interact with people and with society at large, you’re just going to have to learn the empathy and consideration for others that you so obviously lack at present. 

"You’ll have to learn to be an adult" - strange, because there’s nothing remotely adult about laughing at someone’s gender identity and/or brushing off their psychological vulnerabilities as irrelevant. I think the appropriate word for that would actually be "sociopathic". 

Also differentiating between the internet and the “real world” like that is ignorant at best. Comments and photos posted on the internet can constitute invasion of privacy, revealing of privileged information, defamation, etc, just as they can when these things are spoken/given to someone face to face - the only difference is the scale, wherein on the internet it’s actually more severe. The internet is an absolute necessity to get a job in today’s world for the vast, vast majority of people (and if you think I’m wrong there, I challenge you to prove it). Networking with people all across the world provides people with a much wider and stronger social net and support system. Use of the internet also not only provides opportunity to educate oneself further, but it’s essentially necessary for college and university students due to the wide variety of articles published online - sometimes exclusively online - that’re often difficult to obtain in hardcopy for reference. Tell me, in what way is any of this not “real” enough for you?

Anonymous said: When girls go out wearing tiny, tight, skimpy outfits, I mean they have the choice to wear something else. some thing less provocative, so really girls are asking for it.

scalelectricity:

If you’re out in public and I see you’re not wearing any protective headgear does that give me the right to smash in your skull with a hammer? I mean you asked for it, since you’re not wearing something to protect your head.

yeah that sure makes sense

Dirt isn’t considered safe to eat, but nobody minds eating food grown in dirt.
…do you see how utterly fucking mindless that sort of reasoning sounds?
There are valid reasons aplenty to loathe Monsanto. Don’t reduce yourself to this kind of utter nonsense. This is propaganda. Why waste time with propaganda when the truth will serve the same purpose?

Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?

This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.

Can someone from the science side of Tumblr explain this?

Basically this argument uses a flawed understanding of (i) the process of evolution and (ii) the evolution of humans and other apes.
What you have to understand is that evolution does not mean that every individual of species A turns into species B over time, without any individuals of species A persisting - this is transmutation and, while it does occasionally happen, it is not the main mechanism of evolution. Rather, evolution works by gradual mutation and selection acting over time, such that species A at time 0 can give rise to species B at time N. It is possible for species B to arise from species A without species A having ever gone extinct - when this happens without any gene flow between the two populations, usually in some kind of geographic isolation, we call this ‘allopatric speciation’. It is equally possible for species A to give rise to species B and species C, while at the same time going extinct itself.
This means that if you trace lineages backward through time, they converge. Each convergence is the point where the two lineages have a common ancestor. The most recent common ancestor (mrca) of a set of lineages is the most recent point at which all lineages were the same species.
Chimps, Gorillas, and other apes, are not our ancestors. Rather, they are other lineages that diverged from a common ancestor of our group. That common ancestor was an ape, but it was not an ape that is still around today. 
I hope that helped. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
Yours sciencerely,

Essentially this oft-repeatedly and rather irksome question is the evolutionary equivalent of asking “If I’m descended from my great grandfather, why do I have cousins?”

This is pretty much what I suspected.

Don’t let ‘em spread their lies and filth. All this because they refuse to arrest one murderer. Entire community turned upside down, media silenced and threatened whenever they try to do just about anything, innocents repeatedly arrested, town militarized, people of Ferguson being violently attacked at every opportunity based on false pretexts… all this could have been avoided if they had just arrested officer Wilson. Fuck ‘em all.
