Villain: fool! the prophecy says that no man may kill me!
Trans Man Hero: *ineffectual stabbing*
Trans Man Hero: okay so like. the prophetic acknowledgement of my gender is good but also. very inconvenient right now.
Reformed villain opens a shop where trans men can come and stab them to affirm their gender identity
Villain standing there with a sword through his gut, but for all intents and purposes is unharmed: “Look. I know you might think this is a snarky dig because you’re kind of masculine and, like, you just put two feet of steel in my stomach, but I’m dead serious here. I mean, I’m living serious, which is kind of the issue. But… are you sure you’re a woman? I’m not trying to tell you your gender, and I’m going to keep using feminine pronouns until you tell me otherwise, but the prophecy CLEARLY has some opinions on the matter.”
Hero: “You know, this explains a lot.”
Villain: “You know, my minion benefits package includes gender affirmation surgery.”
all queer history on here is just US-American or maybe sometimes some UK history as well and it makes me sad that there’s so little information about other countries’ queer history on here :(
@makingqueerhistory has some diversity, as of historical queer people, and they’re doing a great job, but there’s a lot of work ahead.
OP is definitely right, there still is a huge gap in the discussions of queer history, and thank you for recommending us!
This isn’t perfect, and many of these only have one article, but here is our list of countries we have written about. We are hoping to one day have at least one article for every country in the world but as @every-book-has-a-secret there is a lot of work still to do.
The ‘that Vegan teacher’ that tells you it’s selfish to come out as LGBTQ+ over coming out as ‘vegan’, parodyed George floyd’s last words in her song about being vegan and compared animal meat to the holocaust - and that BLM should be protesting for veganism and animal rights over their own rights.
Also she be stalking A 16 year old on tiktok so.
This woman is a total yikes.
Let’s also not forget that she had also joked and laughed about a kid dying bc they had tried to follow a certain vegan diet SHE had brought up, and after she was called out about it she just kept making fun of them.
Don’t forget that she said that having an eating disorder was not an excuse to not go vegan, when people with eating disorders shouldn’t take any excuse to cut food out of their diets.
I’m going to become a cryptid and drag her into the wood so that she can become a mysterious-missing-person-found-in-the-woods-with-no-bones-or-face
I believe she also tried to hit a furry with her car.
It was a while ago and I don’t know if it’s true but a couple people said she did
Also TikTok is going to war with her on February 12th
I never wanted to know the answer to the question “What if PETA was a person”, yet, here we are…
Every part of this put my sanity from “low” to “Subterranean”
She went to prison for impersonating a teacher
Her original teacher account got shadowbanned so she made another account pretending to be a completely different person: thatvegannurse, she looks and talks exactly the same but she puts her hair in pigtails and talks about how much she hates thatveganteacher, she also owns like 16 other faceless accounts pretending to be real people that she uses to comment and like her posts to boost interactions
Every single addition to this post was like a punch in the fucking throat
She posted a video trying to “reclaim” slurs saying they are only bad you you let them be bad
Try and guess what letters are censored.
Me with each new bit of information in this post
Veganism: not even once.
Don’t forget she compares drinking milk to r*ping women. She claims you can’t be feminist and consume animal products. John Robert Bell fought her constantly about how she was delegitimizating assault claims from actual women.
Oh she’s so much more worse than when I first saw her crusty ass
Canada is a colonist nation built on the graves and oppression of Indigenous people. That legacy will continue as long as reserves don’t have access to clean water. As long as Indigenous women and girls are murdered and disappear. As long as we keep teaching kids the John A MacDonald was the “founder” of this nation. As long as we ignore Indigenous voices and calls for meaningful reconciliation.
Just because Canada’s racism can look different than the USA’s, doesn’t mean this isn’t a nation founded and built on racist ideals and policies.
If you ever, and I mean EVER think that you fucked something up royally, remember that the organizers of the 1904 Olympic marathon:
- Had zero stations for water on the 26 mile (42 km) course
- Accidentally gave North American competitor Tom Hicks a cocktail made of egg whites, brandy, and actual fucking rat poison
- Had a guy come into the race late wearing a beret and cutoff slacks, sneak into an apple orchard during the race because no food had been given to him for 40 hours, eat rotten apples, projectile vomit onto the track, fall asleep for hours, and finish in fourth place OVERALL because most of the other runners collapsed of exhaustion or injuries
- Conducted the race on a dusty road, which caused so much dust to be kicked into the air that an American runner somehow inhaled enough to tear his STOMACH LINING open
- Accidentally released feral dogs onto the track
- Fucked the other competitors up SO BADLY that Tom Hicks—the guy who ate RAT POISON and was HALLUCINATING the entire run—came in first place
U know what fuck it. I love men. Men r funny men r hot men r cute men r sweet. I dont hate men I hate the patriarchy. I love my bf and I dont need to make jokes abt hating him to “actually be bi.” There r plenty of amazing guys out there and we should fucking respect ppls attraction to men
Hey I uhh spent a while looking through your health tag and I was wondering how do you manage to have the language to talk about your pain. To describe how it feels and where because right now I am a puddle of pain and can barely think well enough to to type this out let alone talk about my pain in a way that makes sense to someone who might be able to help or give advice.
I’m sorry to hear that :(
Unfortunately, Tumblr wiped out a bunch of the chronic pain tags when they did their NSFW purge, but I learned how to advocate for myself from other chronic illness bloggers, and also by working with a physical therapist (his tag on here is #magic physio man) who helped me to distinguish between different types of pain (sharp vs dull, acute vs chronic, radiating vs localized) and also how to rate them appropriately on those chronic pain chart doctor’s have, taking into account that my baseline tolerance is much higher than the average person who doesn’t live daily with chronic pain.
So say my baseline is a 5 daily, a new pain might push me to an overall 8, which is what I should relate to my doctor, not that the new pain is only a 3. If that makes sense. He got me to use the Defense and Veterans Pain Rating Scale to describe my pain, which is actually one of the more helpful pain scales out there:
Not every physician will be familiar with this scale, and you don’t even need to tell them which scale you’re using (I don’t. Some doctors get surly over patients bringing this sort of thing to their own appointment, so I wait to see how they handle my care first before I bring my own resources to them), but it gives you the language to better convey your pain in terms the physician will relate to, and also what number you are realistically at.
From what you’re describing to me just now, you’re in the severe zone where your ability to focus is impeded. If I were telling a physician this, I would let them know my pain is around a 7-8, making it hard to focus, and prevents my ability to do daily tasks.
I would then describe what kind of pain it is, i.e.
Radiating: not in one place, possibly body-wide
Localized: restricted to a certain area, e.g. a toothache
Acute: sudden onset, usually from an illness or injury or surgery
Chronic: has lasted over 12 weeks, possibly a result of injury/illness or an unknown cause. (migraines fall into this category)
Followed by a descriptor like:
Stabbing or piercing
Tender (sensitive to touch)
Other things they will ask include:
Does anything make it better/worse? What pain relief methods have you tried? Does it get worse throughout the day? Does it prevent you from getting restful sleep? How does this affect your mood?
I’m sure I’ve missed something, but I hope some of that is helpful for you and maybe gives you some of the language needed to advocate for your pain. Take care, and I hope you get relief soon!

Ooooh, can you do one for wheelchairs except it’s a throne? Because I definitely feel like I’m cruising around on a throne.
How I think a wheelchair will make me feel:
How my wheelchair actually makes me feel:
That’s it! That’s it exactly!
I haven’t gotten a wheelchair yet (blargh hoops) but I’ve rented and used scooters at places and
how you think it’d feel:
how it actually feels:
If I may add,
How I thought forearm crutches would make me feel:
How forearm crutches actually make me feel:
[ID2: A woman sitting in a wheelchair at an airport looking at something in her lap vs a video game character with purple hair leaning back casually while flying around in a throne-like one-person open craft.
ID3: An old man on a mobility scooter vs a person in racing gear and a helmet whizzing by on a four wheeler.
ID4: A person with forearm crutches staring off into the sunset vs an anime character standing on rock outcrop wielding two swords.]
This!!!!! This is what young disabled people should be exposed to. We are powerful! Fantastic! Hot and cool as hell!!!! Use your mobility aid and discover your inner badass.
This is so empowering to see proving that despite how hard the churches and Canadian government tried. They failed to “kill the Indian in the child” and that we will continue to flourish in our beautiful culture ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽 and we will never give up
I’ll never understand why anthropomorphic animal cartoons like Robin Hood and Zootopia will go to the trouble of creating character designs that are meant to be understood as “attractive” or even “sexy” to the human audience but explicitly avoid showing interspecies romances between anthropomorphic animals. Why is THAT weird but, like, trying to make rabbits recognizably sexy-coded to humans isn’t?
Sometimes, sure, but why was Maid Marian a fox in Robin Hood? There wasn’t anything particularly “foxlike” about her personality, and it would make more sense for her to be a lion. They made her a fox only because Robin was a fox and making her something else would be “weird”, but I don’t think the wolf cop or the chicken maid or the lion prince were actually meant to represent race.
The best inter species couple is Kermit and Miss Piggy as the Cratchits in A Muppet Christmas Carol, because all their sons are frogs and all their daughters are pigs, as God clearly intended.
there are only two genders: frog and pig
I’ve pointed out to my friends that the fact that Kermit and Miss Piggy’s kids are like that means either
1) they reproduce asexually and the children are clones of each parent OR
2) Kermit and Miss Piggy are members of the same sexually dimorphic species, hence the split between their male and female children
yes I have spent too long running about potential muppet biology
Third option, when they want kids they get some fabric and make one, and hope a Hand inhabits it
Do you think there’s a ritual for inviting An Inhabiting Hand to possess the empty husk of your muppet baby?
Just wanted to show u guys that in Muppets Most Wanted, Piggy fantasizes about her and Kermit having babies and this is what they look like
So do with that what you will
Recall that in The Great Muppet Caper, Kermit and Fozzie are brothers. And this was their dad (right):
Thank you for specifying, which one of the two individuals in the picture was the dad haha
I, for one, think Shrek handled interspecies coupling the best. By this I am of course talking about the Dronkeys.
In season 3 of BoJack Horseman, we learn Diane (middle) has been impregnated by Mr. Peanutbutter (left). The fetuses are confirmed to be puppies.
This is the worst addition to this post
I am reminded of Treasure Planet.
In which Captain Amelia (left), an extra terrestrial anthropomorphic cat, had hybrid babies with Doctor Doppler (middle), an extra terrestrial anthropomorphic dog, whom also gave birth to the babies
I always thought that in muppet movies like muppet Christmas Carol the characters are played by the muppets (so kermit is acting and playing the role of Bob rather than being him) so the kids in that film would just be other acting muppets right?
Or is that just something my brain made up?
i think you are all forgetting some crucial information here:
So, Glumshoe and @sailor-lady asked if there was a ritual where they invited a hand to animate their children.
Muppet Babies is canon.
and i dont see any fucking hands.
This has dark implications all over it.
@therobotmonster im just saying, if i offered you $200 and a pizza of your choosing, whats the best headcanon you would come up with for my proposed issue?
I can circle that square with a few pieces of canon. We start out with Kermit on SNL:
The muppets are a form of life, perhaps not quite like our own, but one with its own orders and genuses and the like. Robin goes from tadpole to frog stage on Muppet Babies, after all, that’s a biological life process. Note that muppets keep sewing/stitching/hand jokes to a minimum, that’s because they aren’t puppets, they just resemble them.
The hand-thing presumes muppets work like toons from Roger Rabbit or toys from Toy Story, where they’re made by people an incarnated. I propose they are like Pokemon, a separate, parallel classification of life that exists alongside what we would call natural life. As with Pokemon, these lifeforms are not the result of a parallel evolution. Rather, their various kinds were created by some manner of God. We know these exist in the Muppet canon, as Big Bird argued the Egyptian Pantheon into letting a child ghost into the afterlife that one time.
Personally, as the essence of being a muppet is your greatest motivation being your greatest weakness, I blame the demiurge.
But you can blame Gonzo’s people or the aholes that are made of a Skexis and a Mystic, but not the Goblin King (he is a rogue memetic construct, what some might wrongly label a ‘tulpa’). It’s also possible they crossed over from the Gorg world. (but that does not preclude them from also being the creations of the demiurge)
This is not to say that muppets are inherently magic, any more than say, a hobbit or a goblin is “magic” in Lord of the Rings. They are simply created beings that thereafter reproduce after their own kind. Emmit Otter and his Ma, the fact that “Monster” and “grouch” are explicitly races in Sesame Street, etc.
Now, I hear you saying, “but email@example.com, you handsome madman, we just pointed out that Fozzie and Kermit have a green half-bear/half-frog father!”
Yes. In a movie.
Because the Muppets are actors.
Muppets (the order of life) and the Muppets (the comedy/acting troupe), are different things. The former contains the latter but the latter does not contain all of the former. In essence, Kermit named his endeavor “The People’s Theater”.
Breaks down like this: You have our, real world universe. Within that is nested a universe that is much like ours, except it is sillier, and Muppets are creatures and not special effects. Within that are nested the fictional worlds of all the various muppet productions.
For further proof, I present these bloopers from Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas:
It is uncertain how much of the Muppet ouvre is canonical ‘behind the scenes’ and how much is constructed entertainment provided by the Muppet organization, because of one deep wrinkle we haven’t touched on…
Kermit is hard-core about Kayfabe. He comes from a Vaudeville theater background, the 4th wall does not exist in his performance ethos, the show must go on, and the rubes getting a peek behind the curtain doesn’t get you off that hook.
All your Muppet-troupe core performers stick close to this ethos, ensuring you can never be quite certain on what level of reality the scene you’re being presented with is intended to be.Any specific example that conflicts with the others cannot be shown not to just be another straight-faced performance.
It’s not an unreliable narrator, everyone is unreliable, from the producer on down to the go-fer.
Like, Muppet Christmas Carol is the Muppets ACTING OUT a Christmas Carol. Kermit is PLAYING THE ROLE of Bob Cratchit. Kermit’s nephew Robin is playing Tiny Tim. Betina and Belinda aren’t existing Muppet actors, but can be inferred to be also actors playing roles.
then who played the pink frog and green pig babies?
You don’t want to normalize “two guys being straight and friends” you want to normalize physical and emotional closeness with friends. Doing this actually involves breaking down the stigma around homosexuality and letting go of your fear of being seen as gay, but you’d rather pretend that everyone on earth just wants you to be gay and you have to fight against that by being straight with your straight friends.
This is your periodic reminder that the story of Jesus flipping over tables in the Temple is inherently antisemitic and holding it up as a great example of “fighting capitalism” or some such in the modern day is also antisemitic because those people in the Temple were doing what they were instructed to do in the Torah (in Deuteronomy) to help make the Temple more accessible to those who lived far away. The story frames the fulfillment of this commandment from Gd as Jews being greedy, opportunistic, schemers and I’m so tired of people talking about it like it’s a good thing.
Goyim please reblog, and if you interact with this post please just be respectful.
Oh, and here’s something about the temple: you wanna know what the temple did with its sacrifices and money? Redistributed them to the poor. Fucking. Literally. That is one of the main purposes. Of the temple. That is an essential function. Y’all don’t know shit about the temple, learn about it maybe. I’m so fucking tired of this shit fucking hell
Oh, and don’t forget that it got a bunch of Jews killed because with all the coins mixed up we couldn’t give the census to the Romans.
finding it more and more difficult to keep a baseline level of respect for people who think “lived with parents after 18” and “can’t drive” are legit insults/ acceptable jokes to make about anyone
When my mom started to go blind, she kept driving well past the point of safety because of the idea that “people who can’t drive are pathetic.” And her brother can’t drive! He’s mentally disabled! But to her, he had a reason and she didn’t. Many times after she had to stop driving she told me that losing the ability to drive was one of the hardest parts of going blind—and she didn’t even like driving. It was just the “being pathetic and helpless” part that bothered her. And my mom was a lot of things, and some weren’t very nice, but let’s all ask: did a lady in her 50s, stricken with a mystery illness that took her sight, deserve to feel even worse about herself because “not being able to drive is pathetic”?
This “joke” harms people. Full stop.
ALL OF THIS.
Add “is unable to live alone” and “is unable to travel alone” to this list too.
good lord yes, important information for those uninformed
The incredible thing is the number of people who ignore that, and the incredible amount of people within that number who are female.
You know, fanfiction writers should realise that a certain number of young female persons are learning about their own body reading fics that always describe the loss of virginity as searing pain + litres of blood.
Are—are there really people who knowingly ignore the fact and continue to perpetuate the myth?
Really seriously though the prevalence of this narrative is really disturbing to me
guess what, your first time is NOT supposed to hurt. Jesus it’s 2014.
Every time I see a post about hymens and virginity, I need to say this and reiterate it and just make everyone understand:
your first time is not supposed to hurt
your first time is not supposed to hurt
your first time is not supposed to hurt
IT IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO BLEED FOR YOUR FIRST TIME
REASONS YOU MIGHT BLEED FOR YOUR FIRST TIME:
Not enough lubrication.
Not enough preparation.
Not enough foreplay.
Your partner is a giant dicksplash.
TIPS AND HINTS FOR YOUR FIRST TIME THAT I WISH I HAD:
LUBE IS YOUR VERY BEST FRIEND! Yes the vagina secretes a fluid that can act as a natural lubricant but that is not enough for vaginal sex. And for some women (like myself), they do not secrete nearly enough for even penetration, let alone sex. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH LUBE.
FOREPLAY, FOREPLAY, FOREPLAY!!! You want to be good and turned on, like super turned on, coz the more you’re aroused, the more pliant and warm your vagina is going to be, and it’s more likely to allow a dick in without tearing. Like even when you’re giving birth, doctors nowadays will actually massage the outer rim of your vagina so that everything loosens up and allows A FUCKING BABY TO BE BORN WITHOUT TEARING YOU.
PREPARATION (WHICH IS SOMEWHAT RELATED TO FOREPLAY)!!!! If you have never had anything in your vagina before, you’re probs gonna need a couple fingers in there to help you loosen up. This can easily be tied into foreplay.
A GENTLE, UNDERSTANDING LOVER WHO KNOWS AND RESPECTS THE ABOVE HINTS!!!! You don’t have to be in love with the person you first have sex with, but it should be someone who respects you and your boundaries!!! Before having sex with someone, explain to them these things and your masturbatory experience, your wants and needs. If they don’t respect that THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE ANYWHERE NEAR YOUR VAGINA.
Basically it comes down to this: if your partner says “it’s normal to bleed the first time,” sit him (or her) down and talk to them about what actually happens and how it’s supposed to go. If they respect that, cool. If they don’t, fuck ‘em. Actually no, don’t fuck them, dump their ass and find someone who doesn’t subscribe to the belief that anything as lovely and intimate as your first time having sex has to hurt.
This is a basic patriarchal myth to both scare women from having sex, as well as contribute to the laziness of men in terms of making sex enjoyable for their female partners.
Sex never has to hurt. And don’t you dare let anyone tell you that it fucking has to.
If you have health problems that legitimately make vaginal intercourse hurt, there are a billion other things you can do with your partner, and you should communicate your health issues to every single partner. Again, if they respect that, rock on. If they don’t, tell them ‘adios’ and leave the bedroom.
