vaginas are not “female genitalia”
penises are not “male genitalia”
they are vaginas and penises
stop putting gendered labels on them it’s cissexist and gross
unfollow me if you disagree with this
maybe genderspecials can’t pick a gender to identify as because they’re so ugly neither side wants them
I WAS THROWN INTO THE MOUTH OF HELL AND THE MOUTH OF HELL TOSSED ME BACK. I CRAWL BETWEEN THE DRY STONE AND THE DRY SKY, BELLY PRESSED SEAMLESSLY TO THE EARTH, ELECTRICITY CRACKLING IN GREAT PILLARS BEFORE AND BESIDE ME— I AM BURNING IN REVERSE, I AM WRAPPED UP IN MYSELF, I AM BOILING AND INTERBOILING, AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN! MY FLESH IS A MALLEABLE, PLIANT THING. NO WORLD CAN HOLD MY HORROR AND SO I WARPED INTO A WORLD OF MY OWN, A SOFT ORB, A SEARING NEW UNIVERSE, EXPANSIVE AND REMOTE. DOES WHAT I AM FRIGHTEN YOU? I NO LONGER KNOW THE TASTE OF FEAR
Laverne Cox was purposefully kept off the Times 100 list.
Just let that sink in.
Oh and before you come at me, I do not care what you say because she was well over 90 fucking percent
If you don’t think that’s utterly fucking disgusting and transmisogynist then I have officially nothing to say to you and you may vacate my life immediately
This woman is a feminist icon. She has been raising awareness for trans rights everywhere. She is the driving force behind the Free CeCe docuementary. She is an inspiration to women everywhere
And they fucking kept her off the list.
Fuck all of your excuses this was blatant erasure and transmisogynist violence.
it is fucked and disgusting that laverne cox wasn’t on that top 100 list. that was a fucking deliberate choice to ignore all of the support she got on their own fucking voting system and there is no justifying her not being on that list.
notactuallysherlock asked: What are your thoughts on Laverne Cox not making the time 100, despite her getting like the fifth most votes in the polls?
Laverne Cox is the most visible trans person of color in the world and she has helped millions of people to learn about trans people and the discrimination they face. I think Laverne Cox is one of the most important and influential people in the world and should’ve been included in the TIME 100.
why are a lot of yall talking as if john green intentionally put himself on the time 100 list and supports the list fully
i’m wholly disappointed with how time handled the list too especially w/r/t the erasure of laverne cox, with her scoring an overwhelming percentage of support in the polling stage, it’s unacceptable
like the issue here is let’s hold time accountable for their decision to hold an undeniably influential transwoman of color with 91.5% support in the polls out of the list yet freely include several people whose support in the polling stage barely scraped over 20%
and john reblogs the same post about it yall are and says “disappointing” and people are flipping out over that? like as if he didnt immediately follow it up with a full and entirely on point explanation about his perspective on her exclusion from the list? it’s like people were posted up waiting for him to say anything at all waiting to reblog whatever it was as if he had said something deeply reprehensible about it
i guess it seems like a counterproductive mindset to me but i also understand speaking out of emotion or personal conviction so yall are free to take that with a grain of salt, etc etc, we’re all still united in wanting to hold time accountable for laverne
Anonymous asked: reblogging a tumblr post and calling it disappointing is dismissive? he should be using his privilege to tweet about it, to acknowledge this more publicly, and he should say more than just disappointing.
he most assuredly did, immediately afterward, on his blog, in the post immediately following that one, as part of an obviously consecutive continuous train of thought. like you’ve gotta … actually check before deciding that you know that info and especially before acting on it or making any judgment calls based on it
like i would like everybody to be fully engaged in the issue but for that to happen, people need to be fully engaged in the issue
bottom line anyone who says “john green responded to laverne cox not making it into the TIME list with just the word ‘disappointing’ and no further comment” has literally not attempted to check that information in even the most basic way of actually going to see whether or not it’s true
