whats goin awn why is there bimbo discourse 😭😭
Hello hello so I blocked out the first part of your ask just because I don’t want to incite anything on my blog and while I don’t agree with the way the original anon approached me, I also don’t want to encourage any negative energy/opinions of them because I mean. They were on anon. There’s no way of actually speaking with them and discussing how their approach was inflammatory and rude, you know? The point is, it didn’t bother me and all we can do is hope that they’ll eventually recognize that their behaviour is problematic and speaking to people like that isn’t okay.
For the second part of this ask, I’m not entirely well-versed on it as I’m just learning about it myself, so please take this all with a grain of salt! And I highly encourage doing your own research as well. I believe it’s because the origins of the term ‘p*ansexual’ in the 70s can 1) contribute to bi-erasure and 2) the specification that the term includes trans people can be linked to TERF beliefs as it contributes to the idea that trans men aren’t men or trans women aren’t women. I think it’s because there’s a delineation? I don’t want to assume too much because again, I’m still puzzling through it, but in general because of the problematic history behind it! I used this article here to inform myself and I think they’re a good publication to use! I couldn’t find anything speaking to the contrary.
sorry but all this bimbo discourse..... y’all cannot be for real....
saying that women / people socialized as women can’t reclaim that term and that kink without having to analyze the historical context of it (which literally affected them) when they do... like you cannot be for real here saying that it’s wrong of women to reclaim their own trauma and their own stereotypes for something empowering without hashing out the often traumatizing history of it....
are y’all really saying that they have to relive trauma like that just because someone else decided that they didn’t like the kink? everything has historical roots... but saying that women / people socialized as women who like or write bimbo/bimbo reader need to relive that trauma in order for their reclamation / healing to be valid...
like... a lot of kink EXIST because of social and societal trauma. there is a reason for it. i can assure you that every woman / person socialized as a woman has experienced the trauma and invalidation of this stereotype to a degree in their lives. why are we saying that people who want to reclaim that are being enemies to feminism when it’s LITERALLY their trauma?
there is something sitting wrong with that.
that’s not right..... come on.....
I love when I see pmcyt agreeing with sfw/non pmcyt. Because it's like bestie, they hate you too. You realize that? All that stuff they're saying to us about being disgusting and disrespectful? Yeah, they think it about you too. They might be quiet about it right now, but you better believe as soon as they think poppytwt is "handled", you're the next one up.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. But that won't last forever.
Warning, the following post is an angry rant I made about c!Dream apologists. Involves mentions of child abuse and death. Also /neg and discourse related.
“c!Dream is morally gray you can’t just tell people not to be apologists for him” yes i can and i will. He abused a child. And the entire point of us not seeing his perspective is to make sure he is the only morally black character on the server. He may seem morally gray to the writers bc they know his story but we do not. Shut the fuck up.
You can like his character without being an apologist, y’know. I fucking love c!Dream’s character, he’s fascinating as hell and we know almost nothing about him. But I also despise him. Because he abused a child. Like i legit saw someone say it was cute he didn’t want c!Techno to die because “he saw what happened to Tommy.”
That isn’t fucking cute. He murdered a child and didn’t want his only escape to get murdered as well. That’s like blowing up a building with innocent people to prove that using explosives is bad. I’m just. So tired.
c!Dream is literally just a terrible person. Why does twt feel the need to defend him. You don’t have to defend him in order to like him.
And it is honestly upsetting seeing c!Dream analysts who don’t defend him getting mixed in with apologists whenever I mention this in an online space. Because you have people who are like “his backstory is so fascinating i hope we get to learn about it” and then you have people who jump off of that statement with stuff like “yeah because then it’ll show how he’s actually in the right!”
TLDR: You can like characters who are awful people without being apologists for them and being an apologist for a child abuser is fucking awful why would you even try to do that
I'm literally bisexual but sometimes I see questionable bi visibility posts and I have to second guess myself about whether the op is panphbic and the saddest part is that most of the time I am right
Its actually really fucking sad that some people in the DBD fandom have shamed and made fun of me to the point where Im starting to get embarrassed of my self ship with Talbot and I'm nervous to post about it now
There was nothing stopping you from just shutting up and leaving me alone. If you dont like something dont look at it its literally not hard. way to fucking ruin something that I enjoyed that was harmless and fun.
since I started self shipping with Talbot it has caused me nothing but fucking grief. Now im blocked by almost every single popular dbd artist and im scared to interact with anyone because ill just end up blocked with Private quote RTs on my tweets. Or how about people making fake "fan edits" of my art to make fun of me. Or how about big artists straight up publicly posting lies about me and nobody correcting them or saying shit. When im looking for Blight content I stumble upon accounts that have me blocked every single day. Whats the fucking point.
i want to make this very clear: i don't hate you if you like knifetrick. i don't think you're a bad person. i don't think you should be ashamed. i think you're fucking wonderful, and beautiful, and perfect, and i'm really sad that this is affecting you in any way--personally i wish that this never happened! i think that the fan community that was built around knifetrick was amazingly talented and super supportive, and i'm sad that it breaks boundaries. it fucking sucks.
if you'd like to talk about this, i am open and free. i will gladly discuss it with you. (i will be logging off for about a week in the coming days, but before or after that is fine <3)
the problem is not with the readers, the people who enjoyed it, or fuck, even the people who worked on it! the problem is that it broke boundaries--ranboo expressed several times he isn't okay w/ shipping, adding later on "in any way with anyone." things can be fixed--romance isn't the main plot of the fic, it could easily just be edited out. does it suck? yeah. does it have to? no.
point being: don't feel bad about liking/writing/engaging with knifetrick or any other /r beeduo fics. ignorance is an easy problem to fix and it isn't anyone's fault. just be open to discussion, y'know? <3 <3
me for literal years: not labeling abusive behavior as abuse or excusing it due to neurodivergence/mental illness will normalize it in people's minds which is bad because it will make people unable to recognize abuse either when they are being abused or when they are being abusive- [gets called ableist]
some rando several years later: well im mentally ill and IVE hurt people irl does that make ME an abuser?
so linda evangelista has an enlargement of fat cells (and still IS NOT fat, to be clear) and is calling herself "brutally disfigured" and being praised for her "bravery" for talking about it. cool cool cool.
99s hxh will let kurapika say that the phantom troupe should be chained up in the depths of hell but theyll erase the heavens arenas trios disabilities.........okay
if you will not believe that aphobia is real, at least believe that aspecs are not privileged & that being aspec does not protect us from problems unrelated to being aspec
