About

I'm a professional geek, and this is where I come for my daily doses of fandom squee, cute stuff, and social justice. I post original content elsewhere online and use this account for an alarming amount of reblogging. You have been warned.

Did you ever just feel so lucky for knowing someone you met online?
Like.. I was one click away from not following you. I was one second away from never even knowing of your existence. 
I would never have been this happy.

Then one day you turn around and find they’re like a balloon, so far out of reach that they’re up there in the sky, a tiny little speck of color, and you’re not even sure you have hold of the string at all. And, of course, it isn’t as though people were standing still while I was putting my shit back together. They were doing their things, living their lives, achieving their goals, growing and changing. So now as I’m turning around and realizing that there’s distance there which wasn’t there a year and a half ago, that someone(s) I was dearly close to are people at the end of that proverbial string, the question is: are we even friends anymore? Is there a *there* to find? It’s an incredibly painful realization, that the cost of what I’ve been through may be that I’ve been a shitty friend, both due to disconnectedness and to pain, and I have definitely, and may have lost more friends than I know as a result. That’s a price that I didn’t count on paying.

'Sex' doesn't sell. Erosion of female self esteem does. The feeling of superiority over women does. Turning women into 'things' to be studied, scrutinized & judged and then calling it 'sex' does.

These are a pair of onesies. For infants. One reads “i’m just a cupcake looking for my stud muffin” and the other reads “girls dig chubby guys”. Heteros really need to stop trying to force their lifestyle on children.

People are really creepy about pushing heterosexuality on babies in general. Like “oh, he loves to smile at girls, he’s such a flirt” and “What a pretty little girl; your daddy is going to have to beat the boys away with a stick”

Like can you not even wait for your infants to gain control of their neck muscles before you start pushing your sexual preferences on them?

oh my gosh this this this this this

so much

it makes me so uncomfortable

Just remove the “hetero” part and leave the “sexual”/”sexuality” ‘cause that’s the fucking creepy part. Doesn’t matter what orientation precedes it, sexual and child are not two words that should ever need to be used together.

Very true.

No, stop trying to derail this and act like heterosexuality ISN’T the one sexuality that is constantly forced onto children and considered socially acceptable to do so. People say shit like “oh you’re going to have to keep the boys away from her” or “oh he’s such a ladies man” about babies ALL THE DAMN TIME. I have seen cishet adults joke about pairing up presumed-other-sex babies when they were a few days old. If you complain about the notion of presuming a child’s sexuality (even if you phrased it as ANY sexuality), you’re told to get a sense of humour. There are NO social consequences for pushing heterosexuality onto children.

You know what would happen if queer people did that? We’d be accused of child abuse, paedophilia, trying to shove “the gay agenda” down people’s throats, and bad parents/guardians.

One time when I was sixteen, I was sick of listening to my relatives ask my cousin (who was around seven or eight at the time) if lots of boys flirted with her at school. So I asked her if any girls flirted with her. My relatives were disgusted. Absolutely disgusted. “I should HOPE not!” I got filthy looks for the rest of the day. I probably wouldn’t make those comments now I’m older. Partly because “do people flirt with you” is inappropriate small talk for a child, yes, and it probably wasn’t fair to ask that just so I could try to get one over on bigoted relatives. And also because I would rather not have accusations of abuse slung at me for pointing out the hypocrisy of cisheteronormativity!

No, you shouldn’t presume a child’s sexuality or gender until you’ve been told (and then you should fucking listen to them, not dismiss them as too young to understand themselves). But let’s not pretend that cisheteronormativity and hypersexualisation of queer sexualities aren’t pervading social phenomena here. There are VERY different consequences depending on which sexualities you presume.

    Yes, you are, you are asking a tremendously large amount. Which is not to say you aren’t able to craft this existence — only that it will require a considerable amount of risk and effort.

    Good luck, dark thing, good luck.

    seananmcguire, are you sending anonmail to the Evil Supply people again?

    Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe.

    I’mma be timeless and without form.
