I'm Birdy. (I am a peacock.)
21. English major. Books are great. Music is great. Video games are great. Webcomics are great. Books are really great.
This blog has a lot of Homestuck things, queer-related things, and feminist things.
I'm still waiting for someone to laugh at my blog title.
YOU CAN TALK TO ME. I love to listen to people's stories. And I've had people turn to me before with problems they can't talk to anyone else about. It's okay, really. You can even text me if you want. 4349893665 (Because it's just so much easier to talk to a complete stranger sometimes, you know?)
Why does everyone feel the need to be fucking activists on tumblr
i know right?? its almost as if people think that others deserve rights??? and its almost as if you arent seeing how they act irl ??? thats so stupid of them! fuck social justice!! am i right ladies ?
the thing is though i dont think i’ve ever met a single dude who genuinely made an effort not to be misogynistic but still actually takes offense when a woman says “urg, men”
and pretty much every white person who is able to recognise and unpack their privilege gets what i mean when i say “urg, white people”
and straight people who are legit supporters do not get huffy when i say “urg, straight people”
and like im cis, but when trans people say “urg, cis people” im not horribly wounded
because when you’re aware of the system you also understand that it’s not about you
and i understand that nobody hates me for being cis, they hate the power that i have over them because im cis (or light-skinned, or able-bodied, etc)
like remember that quote that was like “no, i didn’t say all white people, but since that’s what you took away from it, yes, all white people”? pretty much, the more angry and confrontational you are about blanket comments, the more those comments are directed at you
which makes them a really convenient and effective thing
When you started out you were all…
You had some initial problems, but it was fine, you were just like
But eventually, nothing was working, and you were all…
Finally, you got really honest with yourself, and were like…
It goes in the drawer. Now is not the time.
One day, though, you know you’ll open that drawer and work and work, and in the end you’ll be all…
what no I’m not ready for this exam somebody pause time real quick
You could go with either a small or medium, but I wear a small on the largest clasp set, so a medium might work better?
