You know what sucks? being so used to misgendering that you regard someone simply acknowledging your pronouns as an act of kindness.

buckbarrow:

do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend

Because it’s still happening, i’m making this post

STOP USING THAT MILKY WASHED OUT PSD ON PEOPLE WITH OLIVE/BROWN/DARK SKIN

not only is it ugly anyway, but it lightens skintone, and that’s obviously a problem. that psd is only made for pale people and its meant to only compliment pale people - do not use it on brown/black! this is problem not only found in the 5h fandom, but all around tumblr as well. you need to understand that whitewashing poc is wrong and if you honestly don’t know why please google it.

don’t be afraid of vibrance and high saturation, it doesnt matter if it was a 2011 trend or w/e, it looks better than those milky psds. use more yellows and reds in your curves - brighten your colors!

i’ve made two things to help people edit less like this and here are the links:

tutorial on coloring edits with dark skinned people

psd that doesn’t lighten dark skinned people

if you want another psd or tutorial you can request me, i’ll do it

JUST STOP USING THAT UGLY MILKY WASHED OUT PSD

Y’all remember that time when I told these roleplay helpers to stop whitewashing people of color’s skin when they make edits, and lost some friends over it? Yep.

arodorable:

Saying ace and aro are the same thing is like saying brown hair and brown eyes are the same thing.

Yes, they have some similarities.

Yes, some people have both.

But they’re very, very different. Neither is a prerequisite to the other. Neither is an umbrella term for the other. People can have one without the other.

They are different things.

If you casually use “tumblr” as a thinly-veiled euphemism to criticize or mock any kind of marginalized group then you’re, uh, wait here lemme check my notes here:

  1. Boring
  2. A disappointment
  3. Not fun to be around
  4. Pitifully unfunny
  5. Orange juice
  6. Bread (wheat and white)
  7. Cereal
  8. Napkins
  9. Sorry you’re so boring I lost interest in insulting you and started writing my grocery list by accident

cisharming:

If a trans woman is telling you that a term you’re using is misgendering her and offending her, here’s how you properly argue against her:

  • you don’t
  • you are wrong
  • you are misgendering her
  • stop it

letsbreelhere:

fun brain teaser for cis journalists: write an article about trans people without using the phrases “used to be a…” or “biologically”
