And above we see one of the few non-slut-shaming bisexual jokes ever made in television history.
we have to put our trust in to bob’s burgers, people
so you know how everyone is always like lol illuminati 666 hail satan the south will rise again etc.
well today i was like hey what exactly was the illuminati anyways? and i
Next time on: I didn’t know I was a member of the Illuminati.
Plot twist: Tumblr is literally the Illuminati.
am i in a cult
"well, it seems we are at an impasse."
"so we are. carry on, cat"
"same to you, bird."
someone put into words why i hate when people rib that all homophobic people are just secretly gay
being queer isnt some ironic punishment
THERE WE FUCKIN’ GO
additionally pretending that all the homophobes are self hating gays lets straight people feel like homophobia isn’t their problem and laughingly distance themselves from the uncomfortable fact that they’re the ones who created a culture in which gay people hate themselves and each other to the point of screwing one another over to get ahead and win favor from… straight people.
Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

To the anons (or, quite possibly, one persistent anon) asking me about “but I really want to play with no limits,” I think you haven’t really considered what “no limits” means.
You may indeed want to experience pain and not able to stop it, or to be forced into sexual activity and not able to stop it. You may indeed be okay with things that seem icky like being peed on. But “no limits” doesn’t just mean those things. It could also mean:
(extra-strong content warning for many kinds of abuse)
- Making you unable to get to work, so many times in a row that you lose your job
- Marking a public part of your body permanently so that for the rest of your life you have people at the post office and on the bus asking you what happened
- Telling all your friends, family, and coworkers awful things about you
- Doing something that gives you an infection and you have to be on antibiotics for months
- Permanently destroying your possessions—both sentimental ones that mean a lot to you, and ones you really need like your computer and your clothes
- Making you eat something you’re allergic to and not really caring if you need to go to the hospital or can’t breathe or whatever
- Hurting your pets
Obviously I’m not saying that your average BDSM player will do these things if you forget to specify “by the way, attempted murder is a hard limit.” But that’s because they’re assuming some limits even though you inconsiderately made them guess.
I want you to face what “no limits” really means. It doesn’t mean sexy BDSM or satisfying punishment amped up to 11. If you want that, ask for it. Don’t just stay you have no limits. No limits at all includes some shit you do not want.
I’m getting very tired of ‘inspirational parents of transgender children’ who get praise because they accept their trans children for who they are. Because they give a nice speech and use the right pronouns. Congratulations for reaching a level of basic human respect for your child. Now do you wanna hear about my ‘inspirational parents’ stories?
I know a dad who took a second job and saved all the money because his trans son might want surgery one day.
I know a mom who lef behind the country where she was home to go to a country where her trans child could be safe.
I know a dad who fought 4 men on his own because they had been harrassing his trans daughter.
I know a mom and dad who opened a shelter for homeless trans kids.
I know moms and dads who change jobs, change state, change church, change their politics and sue and fight every transphobe they meet for their trans children. THAT’s inspirational.
You use the right pronouns for your trans kid? Good for you. But it’s going to take a lot more before I consider you anything more than ‘not as bad a parent as you could have been’
Some family member sent me one of those articles and it left such a bad taste in my mouth… couldn’t put my finger on the why until reading this.
ESPECIALLY don’t expect any decency cookies if anywhere in your transparent self-congratulation article or blog post or video or what have you you at all, at any point, allude to a metaphor that your pre-transition child has “died.” No, I don’t care that you made a rebirth metaphor right after; that’s still a really messed up way to think of your child.
Erik Stegman: Racist mascots continue to hurt our Native youth
Erik Stegman of the Center for American Progress discusses how racist mascots hurt Native youth:
“Our cheerleaders dressed up one of our own [students] in a Halloween ‘Pokehottie’ costume and tied her to a stake after dragging her out on the field in shackles against her will. They proceeded to dance around her, acting as if they were beating her and treating her like a slave. This is the most sickening halftime show I’ve ever witnessed.” That’s how Dahkota Kicking Bear Brown described one of his experiences playing his rival team, the Calaveras Redskins, in high school in California. Stories like this are not only common for too many Native youth in our schools across the country—they’re part of a much larger problem for American Indian and Alaska Native people, especially youth.
