Hey followers! For those of you that aren’t aware, the “womyn” spelling of the word women is:

1. Traceable back to its start at MichFest, so we know exactly who they meant to keep out when they invented it, and

2. Heinous. The intent of making a word like it is noble, yeah, I guess, but words have history. Again, invented at MichFest. And used as short-hand in “Womyn’s Spaces” for “Trans women stay out!” for like, 30 years? Why does nobody know about this?

So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.

~SO SICK OF PUNKBROS WHO JUST USE SHOWS AS AN EXCUSE TO PARTY AND BOTHER WOMYN AND GET DRUNK  
~SO SICK OF PUNKBROS WHO THINK PUNK IS ONLY ABOUT DESTRUCTION AND RULE BREAKING  
~SO SICK OF PUNKBROS WHO GET “OFFENDED” WHEN THEY’RE PRIVILEGE IS BROUGHT UP
~SO SICK OF PUNKBROS WHO USE PUNK AS A GUISE FOR THEIR INSUFFERABLE ATTITUDES 
~SO SICK OF PUNKBROS WHO THINK I OWE ANYTHING TO THEM
~SO SICK OF PUNKBROS WHO THINK THEY’RE ANY DIFFERENT THAN THE FRATBROS THEY MAKE FUN OF 

so sick of punks who use the word “womyn” unironically

rememberwhenyoutried:

Obviously not all trans men are arseholes and not all trans women are angels but power dynamics are power dynamics and it’s up to trans men and cafab queers to not abuse the power they have over trans women, and it’s up to everyone to not punish trans women for pointing at those abuses.

This ought not be a controversial statement? It seems like it wouldn’t be if I removed the word “trans” from that paragraph.

So hey, it turns out that Gillian Anderson dressed up like Morticia Addams was something we all needed in our lives.

Q

Anonymous asked:

hey! can i ask what's wrong with bioware? I love the games but know nothing about the company and I'm really curious to hear more about your issues with it if you wouldn't mind. Thank you so much!

theubergrump:

This is a very good question, and I am happy to answer it! First of all, I am so sorry about how long this is.

This is a very difficult thing to explain. I’ve been pretty active in Bioware’s various fandoms for around four years now, and it took me a really long time to catch on to what I’m about to explain. I do not, in any way, think less of you for not knowing the stuff I’m about to talk about, because some of it was “you had to be there” grade stuff, and some of it took me literal years to really grasp the scope of. Most people who’ve played the games without really thinking about the company haven’t really been on top of this stuff like my tiny section of fandom has. That’s not a bad thing! But it does mean that it’s hard to explain succinctly what the issues are.

The only way I can really answer this question is with a very long list of things. No singular event or fuck-up created my overall view of Bioware. All the stuff I’m about to get into has contributed in some way. It’s been a long slog of little things (and big things) that have steadily degraded my opinion of the company as a whole. I’ve been actively a fan since the release of DAO, and I actually played Neverwinter and Baldur’s Gate a long time ago. (not that I blame people for not liking Bioware no matter how long they’ve been into the games, I just want to head off the idea that I just haven’t BEEN here long enough to UNDERSTAND)

I’m uncomfortable with the feeling that I have to compromise my morals in order to continue playing games that I enjoy and interacting with stories and characters that mean a lot to me. I’m grateful to the Bioware team for making those characters and stories, believe me. I think there are some people there with entirely good intentions, who are doing their best to bring us games that actually push the boundaries. I believe a lot of the staff really believes what they say in interviews and on their blogs.

But I’m going to talk about why I’m also extremely ashamed to be so heavily associated with their brand. I’m not 100% hate and venom for this company or the people who work for them, my feelings are lot more complicated than that. 

This is a long list of individual events. It’s easy to look at any one of them and go “oh, it’s one little slip-up, most of the time they’re really good about X issue” but when you get all this stuff together, it’s hard to ignore or hand-wave away. Yeah, if it was all one person, or one group, or one franchise, you could blame them in particular. But this is spread out over everything and it’s all stuff that Bioware put it’s seal of approval on. My point isn’t that they’ve made a lot of mistakes. My point is that these things aren’t mistakes at all, they are evidence of a far deeper problem.

Let’s tackle this one issue at a time. I’m going to do a readmore, because this is going to be LONG.

  • knight: so how does the whole summoning thing work? i'd think harnessing the power of the gods would be pretty tricky.
  • summoner: that's not quite accurate. it's less "gods" that i summon so much as...
  • summoner: well, it's hard to describe easily. manifestations of the aggregated beliefs and commonalities of our cultures, represented through a shared symbology that i can tap into.
  • knight:
  • knight: so, memes?
  • summoner: i don't - what?
  • knight: you summon memes.
  • summoner: no, no it's completely different from - i don't summon memes!
  • knight: hey, Y U NO SUMMON ME? haha
