Thing is is, as much m/f that is produced in the world, as a bi woman, sometimes I want to see a man fall in love with an obviously queer woman. I want to see a man realizing that the woman he is interested in is gnc and that isn’t going to change.
And women fall for GNC men! I want women who are enamored with their soft queer lover.
I want to see masc/masc and fem/fem m/f ships. Wlm and mlw can and should be queer in media.
You know what, Im seeing my own post again and wanna say…. I wanna see queer makeover scenes and I wanna see the love interest gush.
I want the nerdy conservatively dressed girl bestfriend get her hair done and her fancy clothes on and she appears in a pressed suit. And I want the love interest to loose his breath because she’s so handsome in a bow tie and slacks.
I want the guy in a skirt or a dress, I want his love interest so blown away by the way his nylons look.
I wanna see the girl give the boy a corsage.
I want gnc bi love. I want gnc love period ngl.
Historically, when performing long, repetitive tasks like churning butter or weaving cloth, people would sit together and tell stories. Folk stories, fairytales, and even stories about mysterious ape-like figures living in the forests. So, yes, pioneer women did listen to podcasts about bigfoot while churning butter
it’s actually embarrassing how many adults don’t understand how to have peaceful disagreements like if your ‘friends’ have to agree with every little opinion you have down to your fave game of thrones ep you are collecting hostages not companions
nd another thing is you can realize you’re just not compatible with another person as friends nd acknowledge that your povs are totally different nd just not try to be friends. like 'conflict’ isn’t inherently negative nd being honest abt how you feel is literally the basis of a healthy relationship nd i just feel like as you mature you should have the discernment to know what does nd doesn’t require a big dramatic blowup. and also understand that nothing will be fixed if you never tell ppl how you feel. anyways it’s pho time
Honestly I really wish instead of losing all her memories post season 4 Donna had been like temporarily displaced or some other handwavey scifi bullshit so that she could’ve been a River Song or Master type character where she just shows up sometimes and The Doctor is like DONNA MY BEST FRIEND DONNA and their current companion(s) is like “Whomst??? The fuck????” while Donna is just like “ey oh what’s POPPIN”
#god this #can you imagine catherine tate #just showing up in a fucking nebula #doctor’s all like DONNA SO GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN! #HOW’S IT GOING #same old same old seeing the wonders of the universe through involuntary and unpredictable time-space travel #you? #oh you know seeing the wonders of the universe through voluntary but still unpredictable time-space travel #new companion’s like *what are you* #Donna: I’m a temp
Temp is short for temporal anomaly.
i ADORE the anomitinity of tumblr. when i post stupid ass shit from my mush brain on like snapchat or whatever i gotta deal with messages like “are you okay?” and “what does this even mean”. here i can just post 30 pictures of dinosaurs in a row and my followers will be like YEEEEEAAAA BABBY
the other day i posted something on snapchat saying “if we gave monkeys guns i think deforestation would end” and someone sent me a link to an online therapy site i hate it here
Tag yourself I’m LESBIAN
my aesthetic is conservatives trying to make things like this sound scary when really this is ideal
“Married a single father” ??????
Lives with “partner”
Married a single father
Muslim with hijab
Single mother of lesbian daughter
Officiated a “gay wedding”
I literally didn’t even realise this was meant as an attack when I read it. I was just like oh cool. Because really, none of these things make any of these people less people or bad in any way. They’re just info about their life.
this is the future that liberals want.
people on this website be like “it’s actually school’s fault that i don’t know how to read because i wanted to write my essay on the divergent trilogy and that BITCH mrs. clarkson made us study 1984 instead. anyway here’s a 10 tweet thread of easily disproven misinformation about a 3 year old news story and btw, who is toni morrison?”
i KNOW most of y’all are lying about being in the gifted program as children because none of you could pass the basic reading comprehension assessment they give third graders today
this post is mean and I never read divergent or whatever the fuck but 1984 sucks and is rape apologism so if somebody wanted to write about divergent or whatever good for them
this reply is like literally exactly what op is talking about lol. like firstly ops point isn’t “1984 is good”, ops point is that analysing complex stories teaches you how to form opinions and think for yourself. and like secondly in 1984 you’re supposed to think damn it’s fucked up that he’s thinking that way about her, i wonder if this ties in with the central theme of “a society like this will fuck you in the head”? (this is the thinking for yourself part). like do you think orwell just put that in for fun? do you think that just because winston is the protagonist you’re supposed to agree with everything he does?
You know I feel like this post just gave me an epiphany for what is wrong with how Tumblr Fandom/Internet Fandom responds to media-or not *wrong* but makes it very hard to respond to anything but a morally correct, and heroic protagonist.
When an English teacher, or reader, taught or picked up 1984, it wasn’t with the intention they were going to love the protagonist. They picked it up with the intention of reading a whole story and trying to grasp the theme or catharsis from the story. If the protagonist was a *shitty* person it played into the the themes or the story, because it wasn’t about morally judging the book or *liking* or feeling attachment to the protagonist. Sometimes and often times, books were just about gaining another perspective.
No one read Lolita expecting to endear, or like, or be inspired by Humbert. You are supposed to be upset by his behavior, you don’t read Lolita with the intention of being inspired. You read it to learn more about what the fuck is going on inside someone’s head when they behave like that. How children get sucked into abusive situations. Or read “The Great Gatsby” not because they want to fall in love with Gatsby or Nick, but to better understand and analyze the experience of the 1920s or destitution of the American Dream.
A lot of internet and fandom culture has changed that though. When we say something like “I love the Great Gatsby” it comes with the idea or association that means you must *love* or relate to one of the characters. And maybe you do, but the first assumption is not longer about the quality of the work or themes, or cathartic impact-it’s about character admiration. And with that character admiration, in tumblr stan culture, or kin culture, or exalting characters with fanart/romance/so on you don’t just ‘admire’ or find that character ‘compelling’ it now translates to ‘you LOVE that character’ or you ‘DIRECTLY relate to that character.’
You can’t say “I love how Humbert is written, it’s so fascinating and dark”, without it directly translating you somehow relate to a child abuser or condone his actions. Taking in media has become an act of worship and connection. We no longer watch meant to just see the story as a whole, we watch expecting to connect to a character and if we offer them our “worship” as it’s become, as opposed to just attention or interest study as it traditionally was, it means we are condoning the character or saying we directly empathize with all their actions.
I think that’s why there is often now so much fuss over *toxic* characters or not. Or whether that classical novel is showing good or bad things anymore. We’re treating the characters as people we should love or want to draw or write about. Sometimes a story is just about getting the the theme or catharsis or learning another perspective. We don’t NEED to like the character. Or we don’t HAVE to like a character to be impressed by how they’re written or intrigued by their behavior.
I think if internet culture could learn to view stories as small insights into other lives or single takes of one perspective instead of purposeful moral inspirations we’d be a lot less worried about how toxic or not toxic they are.
There is this idea that you’re supposed to identify with a protagonist, you’re supposed to see yourself in them, and therefore the protagonist has to be good, or at the very least sympathetic
If you dare to get into the head of a less-than-sympathetic character, it means that you sympathize with evil, and it apparently says something about you.
You guys realize you’re interacting with other human beings on here, right?
I just think that maybe some of you should be like, normal
and by that I mean that like. you need to realize there are boundaries with interactions with strangers
racial + realist = racist.
Like, look at it
It looks like a sunset
#the sky is bi confirmed
You wanna get people to hate you? Just claim the whole fucking sky belongs to your favorite kink.
the sky belongs to bisexuals now sorry str8s
I have legal rights on the sky purely because you called my sexuality a “kink” you piece of shit. You’re legally not allowed to look at the sky any more. Fuck you.
When you reject religion but keep all the shitty politics associated with it.

So apparently a lot of Twitter users are jumping ship and coming here (which is hilarious) and I’ve seen a lot of “welcome to tumblr” posts going around (also hilarious)
But I don’t think I’ve seen a single one address how clout works on this app. Namely that it doesn’t exist. There’s no verification system. There’s no way to check how many followers someone else has. You can have 5 followers or 500,000 and no one is going to care either way.
Also, simply being on tumblr negates any clout you may have elsewhere. Taylor Swift uses this app. No one cares.
Yes this is a selling point
in an all-muppets reboot of hannibal nbc, which character do you think should be played by the sole human? answer wisely
I haven’t really watched the show, but I still feel very strongly that not casting Swedish Chef as Hannibal would be a wasted opportunity.
