So excited for and proud of my buddy Stitch who got a column, Fan Service, on talking about fandom issues! Stitch has analyzed and spoken about fandom racism & antiblackness for years and I cannot think of anyone more deserving. Catch Fan Service every two weeks on Teen Vogue, with the first two installments already out:

Who Actually Gets to “Escape” Into Fandom?

On Fanfiction, Fandom, and Why Criticism Is Healthy

a gentle reminder to not assume that all nonbinary people are either transmasc or transfem (some of us don't specifically identity as either)

Here's a fat person picrew! (They're so rare ._.)

- 4 body types (with and without an apparent chest)
- hair customization
- different eye styles (the fact that there's no white in the eyes is very strange, especially with darker skin tones)
- decent amount of clothes (even though a lot of them are just oversize and shapeless, the coats especially)
- face modifications I rarely see (wrinkles! Body hair! Even though beard & eyebrows can only be black ><)
- pride flags

white queers stop comparing our experiences with queerphobia to racism yesterday kthx

I watched midsommar! Some quick thoughts 

Okay wow really enjoyed midsommar, the continuous brightness and sunshine whilst extremely wrong and scary things were happening was so disconcerting but also a very cool change from most horror.
Florence pughs acting was :pinched_fingers: *chefs kiss* not gonna lie, I felt her grief and pain so clearly.
Her boyfriend was awful and the way he treated her at the beginning made me so angry. I talked with my mum about it who had also seen the film and I said how terrible it was the way he treated her, and she said oh he was just in a tough situation and didn't know how to break up with her and I was like??? Umm no sorry he wasnt listening to her, manipulating the situation so she had to apologise to him and making her feel bad for asking him for basic decency, that is NOT a good dude.

Was a little odd to see chidi from the good place there at first because I associate him so strongly with that show so my brain had to get used to that haha but he's a very good actor, it was great to see him in something else.
I did not like that her sister who was bipolar killed herself and her parents tho, seems to me to be the same 'mentally ill people might kill you' trope as a lot of other films.
Also, never wanna see such an uncomfortable sex scene ever again 😅

My wife decided that the best way to learn Russian is to have me read children books outloud to her.

Do you have any favourites growing up? Or modern classics? Looking for something at the level of something like Dr. Suess / Reading Rainbow.

like gay people don't say "love is love" to each other, as a slogan it has the same sentiment as "gay is OK :)", it implies that a.) I'm asking for your permission, and b.) I should be constantly aware of the reality that I should be grateful for your permission, and it's possible to revoke it.

Don't suppose anyone has any horror recs? But things that aren't based on ableism, racism, or sexism? I get no media is perfect but media that at least tries to avoid those kinds of tropes would be great. Films/books/short stories/podcasts whatever!

I don't want you to put "BLM" in your display name. I don't want you to put "Black Lives Matter ✊🏾" in your bio.

I want you to unfollow the friend who posts racist jokes.

I want you to confront your parents when they make racist comments.

I want you to stop ignoring the racist coworker b/c they're old.

I want you to donate your time/resources/expertise to local groups making a direct impact on their communities.

I want you actually SHOW black lives that they matter while they're alive.

transmisia, UK, domestic violence support 

"‘If they sound like a man, hang up’ – how transphobia became rife in the gender-based violence sector"

"gal-dem’s investigation into the sector reveals an underbelly of transphobia that has alienated trans survivors and pushed some workers towards a collective fightback."

This is an outstanding piece of Black investigative journalism, worth reading in its entirety. It looks at the public and actual positions of organisations in the sector, and goes deep into the roots of TERF ideology.

birdsite, trans, wholesome 

“So, as a trans woman I’ve gotten a lot of strange comments over the years about my body and appearance.

“And one that always sticks out to me is: ‘You know, wearing a dress doesn’t make you a woman.'”

So, she posted this video. ^_^;
