    actually ive had some thoughts about microlabelling for a while now and i want to talk about it. i think we all look back at our confusion and attempts to break out of boxes by building new ones and forget that the fact that there was a box at all in the first place was an earth shattering revelation. is it any wonder that when we left platos cave and saw colours and light for the first time we described them in terms of shadows? this isnt a mistake we made that shouldnt be repeated, its how learning works.

    and like, dont get me wrong, it is bad that we are clinging on to a prescriptive use of language, a thing which has been taught to us by a society marred by colonialism that is obsessed with creating standards to be measured by. but i think its good, actually, that microlabels exist, because it means people have a smaller, less scary first step into exploring themself. i once saw someone claim microlabelling has created more confused lgbt people, but looking at the trend of more and more people realising theyre not cishet, are we sure its not creating more lgbt people to be confused?

    i think the best way to stop people from reinventing the wheel isnt telling them what theyre doing is useless, its showing them a wheel.

    i get that people dont like the way creating descriptions of specific experiences under the lgbt umbrella has become more about tribalism than community and vocabulary but i really do like the mlm flag. iirc it was created around the same time as the lesbian flag and designed so that its like the same color scheme on the opposite side of the colour wheel as a show of solidarity bc we have distinct experiences but they mirror each other which is really accurate to the relationship between gay men and lesbians imo. its like friendship bracelet flags :)

    #it reminds me of my best friend whos gay #we r like that #opposites but the same #dils declares #besides that i think having community to describe specific experiences that differ from others is good. #like in the same way black people have things that people who arent black wont understand #and the way black queer people have experiences that people who are one or none of those things would understand #etc etc #as long as were aware this is descriptive and not prescriptive i think its good #we all unite under the rainbow :)

    why am i experiencing pronoun buyers remorse!!! ughhdhshhd its so annoying i want to be perceived as neutral so im going by they them pronouns but some people view genderlessness as a gendered thing and like i dont, they means they, but i dont want to like. discourage the use of he/him pronouns, not because its right but because its neutral, like if people think of me masculinely, they are no longer thinking of me in the context of gender until they are made aware im not a man. and i LIKE they/them pronouns, i refer to myself with they/them pronouns pretty instinctively but i also dont dislike he/him pronouns and have been referring to myself with tbem a lot more frequently lately. i think being they online is fine but i genuinely like when people refer to me as he/him sometimes but its because of the cognitive disonnance between me and the pronouns ive realised, like theyre not my pronouns, theyre someone elses.

    oh. i think i want to be a drag king.

    anyway. i think the coyote of the painted plains has a lot of potential as a full series if they get a sensitivity reader and take a red pen to it. and chance should be a he/him lesbian.

    i dont really know what makes me so appealing to people who like lesboreyev but id like to say just fyi i dont like it as a concept for the following reasons

    its very important to me as a black transmasculine nb lesbian who uses masculine titles like sir that juno is a black(ish) transfeminine nb bisexual man who uses feminine titles like lady. in fact hearing juno express he prefers being referred to as lady is what led me to realise this. i understand plenty of people view juno as an nb trans woman or as completely unassoicated with binary gender, but i do not, and i dont see that supported by the text, personally.

    it seems very reminiscent of the terf rhetoric that trans men are self hating women to take a character that has been described by the creator and actor as a gay man and has been perceived by large swathes of trans men as a gender non conforming trans man and declare him a gender nonconforming lesbian instead. im not a trans man so please let me know if im overstepping here.

    vespa is canonically a butch trans lesbian. it feels transmisogynist that we look past a canon trans woman who is somewhat gender nonconforming, which is a genuinely radical and important piece of representation, to undermine something near and dear to a lot of trans men and reassociate him with his agab. again, im not a trans woman, so check me on this if you experience transmisogyny.

    we have a tpp story that is about lesbians, which didnt get picked up for a full series like junoverse did because of interest. id rather the coyote of the painted plains be remade as a full series (preferably with more appropriate casting, a bit of a rewrite and a sensitivity reader) than wrestling lesbian representation out of text that doesnt seem to support it to me.

    chase your bliss, but you wont find it here, and be aware its not without valid criticism.

    #dils declares#tpp #the penumbra podcast #i didnt want to like say anything bc im just here to meta and funniepost #but i gotta be honest it makes me a little uncomfortable when lesboreyev blogs follow me. #i also want to see a he/him lesbian. as a lesbian who has gone by he/him pronouns. #not like this though.
