why do white feminists think ‘BUT WE NEED MORE LEADING WOMEN IN THE ACTION GENRE’ is a good excuse to watch lucy do they honestly believe hollywhite just completely missed GRAVITY and the ENTIRE MOTHERFUCKING HUNGER GAMES FRANCHISE what do they think the funding for ‘lucy’ is coming in the wake of?

they boycott pacific rim (which, yknow, had a japanese woman shoving some of hollywhite’s most racist & sexist tropes so far back up its own ass it was still tasting them the week after) for not passing the bechdel test but blatant violence and racism, well that can slide, that’s great representation, that’s empowering for women.

"you speak english?"

boy i sure do feel empowered seein people who look like my dad & my friends get murdered for not speaking english IN TAIWAN

i am so incredibly angry right now.  there are so many things that are stressing me out, and i just had to clean up a rain of overflowing toilet water at 5 am on a 12 hour shift.  i’m going to keep my cool and go home.  because i have to sleep in order to work my 12 hour tomorrow night.  i’m going to be ok.  but fuck, i am just so filled with rage.

They’re making a movie about Stonewall.

Directed by a straight cis white guy and starring a straight cis white guy. Awesome…

I think I’m going to barf if I see another “Jeremy Irvine staring in Gay rights movie” headline (because apparently trans people don’t exist and didn’t take a large role in Stonewall).

So angry!

UHHH what the
fuck

by my understanding, twoc started it ???

this makes me so incredibly angry.

when i needed my letters from a therapist so that i could start hormones, she used to refer to me as my old name when wore boy clothes (because i was coming directly from work or school, where i was not out), and she would use my actual name when i came in wearing skirts (because i dressed the way i wanted whenever i didn’t have to go to work or school).  she got really confused and thought i was ‘making progress’ or ‘seemed uncertain’ based on these outfit constraints.  i stopped seeing her as soon as i had my letter.  a lot of folks get good stuff from therapy, but tbh i have never found it to be particularly helpful to talk about my transition with a cis person.

so apparently baeddels are a thing, and from checking out tumblr they seem like the worst people ever who set the trans movement back decades

honestly if anyone thinks that a handful of young, angry trans women being angry on their own blogs is setting anyone back tens of years, i think you need to go outside for a while.  the thing about being a young trans woman is:  its impossible not to be angry.

what movement?

presumably the movement of internet feelings?  i’m honestly not sure.

you realize young angry trans women (of color) started the stonewall riots and are the entire basis of the queer rights movement, right?

yes, i totally do.  which is exactly what i’m saying is NOT impacted or “set back” by baeddels being pissed off - which again, it is impossible not to be.  basically, if your ‘movement’ relies on trans women shutting up and being polite in order to move forward, i don’t care about it.  is what i’m trying to say.
