*person posts lengthy thing about how “we” (the entire LGBTQ community as if that was their fucking place) should just reclaim ‘she-male’*
*immediately unfollows that person*
Why is it such a bad thing if someone who is transgender or intersex wants to use that to describe themselves in the same exact manner that you use gay and queer (those were slurs not too long ago)? Why should we be condensing towards them by telling them to not use that label as if they don’t know any better?
Merits of going over to my boyfriends house unannounced while he is asleep and letting myself in and crawling into bed with him? Discuss yay or nay!
The only difference between romantic and creepy is how hot the person is…
Weird, not even sure why but thanks!
So looking through the post of various people i follow, whether for porn or otherwise, i noticed something very interesting, at least for me anyways. This has probably been said and done but some of you may find a fresh perspective on the issue. this was written at like 1 AM so if there are some mistakes…sue me
While that might be true but that behavior is prevalent in most social groupings that gather under an identity. It helps people cope with the complexity of sifting through people they want to interact with based on the identities we ascribe to them.
It also helps solidify the conformity and identity under said label. So my take is that it can be both positive and negative depending on how dependent you are on said label and it takes a certain amount of self worth to be able to use it as a tool rather than depend on it.
As for the avoiding events social events where people you don’t “like” are at; being in the same social space as someone you don’t like creates a stressful environment that will drain any joy that you might get out of it whether you see them or not. Some people are conflict aversive and hence prefer to not put themselves in an environment they perceive as stressful.
