I need feminism because tumblr - Page 152

post #2266 of 5586
I have to apologize for an incident I was a part of. On Facebook, I was involved in a heated conversation in which I derailed the initial intent, misgendered several Alliance members, and contributed to a less safe space for all gender and sexually diverse people. I’d like to first apologize to those I have misgendered. To Elliot, Allen, and ND I am sincerely sorry for using the wrong pronouns and not immediately correcting myself after I was informed they were not correct. Bonita has corrected me on your proper identities and I will refer to you all with those pronouns until you each inform me otherwise. To anyone trans or gender-nonconforming who were affected by my comments, I apologize and commit myself and the Alliance to dismantling transphobia and cissexism. I apologize to BlackOut/ and my organization, The Alliance For Sexual And Gender Diversity for my behavior on Facebook. As a President I am disappointed in my actions and should have acted with tact, class and respect for others including all those involved. I now know that I should have allowed Matthew the opportunity to answer Bonita’s call for accountability, as he did later. I understand that speaking over Bonita, a Black ciswoman, was at best disrespectful and at worst misogynist. I also apologize for my hostile comments to Bonita that derailed a conversation centered on allies for racial justice in light of the Darren Wilson verdict. My hostility came from a place of knowledge about multiple incidents between Bonita and Matthew. Instead of having a dialogue with Bonita directly, I derailed and attacked. I ask for the community’s forgiveness as well as the forgiveness of all parties involved. I hope that my snap judgment and structurally violent actions do not harm the progress that is being made at Georgia State and the greater Atlanta community, such as continued education and gender-neutral bathrooms.

I'm going to require a trained interpreter.

It’s a rare day that I take time to promote princesses, but these are no ordinary royalty I’m writing about today. The Guardian Princess Alliance is a series of educational books about a group of racially and gender diverse princesses who take action to protect living beings and the planet for future generations.

snip

The latest Guardian Princess is named Ten Ten, a young mixed heritage girl from East Asia. She’s gender independent and likes to wear her hair short and practice martial arts, which are traditionally meant for boys. In her story, she fights not only air pollution, but gender norms, like many young feminists today.

Now, maybe it's just me, but I'd say the concept of "princess" and "gender diverse" together is like having your cake and eating it too.

"She’s gender independent and likes to wear her hair short and practice martial arts, which are traditionally meant for boys"

translation; she's a lesbo

do the people of East Asia approve of the feministers appropriating their culture for their message of power?

Funny, we were discussing Christmas at dinner, and my son said, "dad, pirates, Legos, and all other manner of badass toys are great and all, but preachy, sanctimonious princesses are really where it's at this year. My friends and I were just talking about food justice at snack time today, so I think I'll tell Santa that's what I want. "

He said it in Spanish, too, so thank God for the link at the bottom.

I need someone to share my facepamly outrage over this.

A mall Santa turned away an autistic kid, whose name is Abcde, because she brought her "service" pit bull along with her Christmas list. Her parents then made a big stink about it because people who name their child Abcde are inevitably going to have an autistic kid and believe that entitles them to bring the family pit bull wherever they damn well please.

Alphabet in Portugeuse is abecedário. Alphabet in English comes from alpha beta. I don't know where I'm going with this.

 

Name your kid Alphabet.
