white people literally caused the worst epidemic in human history because they didn’t bathe enough and then have the audacity to say Muslims are dirty while Islam has required its believers to wash themselves five times a day for 1400 YEARS

Anonymous asked: I totally fail to understand why anyone would think that the way you speak to strangers on the internet would be remotely similar to the way you are with your boyfriend.

ixnay-on-the-oddk:

I agree. People just want a reason to complain about how they feel I portray myself online. My relationship allows them the opportunity to complain in the form of a question. “what does your boyfriend think about *insert complaint about my personality here*”

People need to stop treating public figures as public property.

Happening NOW: 30,000 Chinese workers strike at the world’s largest producer of athletic shoes such as Nike and Adidas over pay, benefits, and the right to choose a union. The strike, China’s largest in decades, has shutdown production for two weeks and caused the company’s stock price to plummet.

Bloomberg News reports:
"Workers have disrupted production in Yue Yuen’s Dongguan factory complex, which employs more than 40,000 people, since April 14 in a dispute over pay, benefits and the right to pick their own union. More than 50 percent of the workers were on strike today, Liu said. China Labour Watch, which estimated the striking workers at about 30,000, said a small number had returned to work, without quantifying it.”

“I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them."

Sara Eckel, This is Why You’re Still Single (It’s Not Why You Think)

Surely, if anything, the tendency goes the other way.

In some ways, the term “pansexual” came out of biphobia and a need to stipulate that one was not transphobic. If you take the binary view of “bisexual,” then a sexuality specific to an attraction to men and women could be seen as being noninclusive of transgender men and women. On the other hand, transgender men and women want to (and should) be seen as simply men and women, meaning that they would/should be included in that very binary; not including them tends to be much more phobic and noninclusive.

Then there is the thought that the binary view of bisexuality can be seen as phobic of anyone who identifies as genderqueer, or somewhere along the gender and sexuality spectrum, not identifying as male or female, man or woman. But, as I mentioned before, the true definition of “bisexual” is being attracted to those who are the same as me and those who are different from me, encompassing all genders and identities. The often-repeated argument that “bi means two” ignores a simple fact: “Same” and “different” are, indeed, two groups.

"

The Bad ‘B’ Word: A Need for Bisexual Acceptance (via alchemy)

I gotta say, nothing frustrates me like allegedly queer friendly folk insisting that trans people don’t get to belong to their gender, but rather need a special third or fourth bracket to call their own. A trans man is a man. A trans woman is a woman. It’s not hard.
