Yeah, I know there are some specific textures, tastes, and sounds I’ll seek out, but sight and smell are definitely just means to an end, and I’m usually not seeking generally, if you know what I mean? Like, I normally won’t seek out anything that I don’t know to be a safe texture/taste/sound. It’s when I start seeking out things that are known to give me a lot of discomfort (discomfort which, suddenly, has disappeared) that I view it as abnormal.
Sometimes I’ll just randomly switch from defensive to seeking in one sense and my internal reaction is: “what.”
I don’t think the defensive/seeking dichotomy is really as much of, well, a dichotomy as some people make it out to be. I am often… well, always some degree…
…I changed my password settings and then was really confused about why my phone wasn’t sending e-mails.
People who seriously misgender or otherwise mishandle trans characters in fanworks… :/
In sixth grade, Peter liked a girl. Her name was Vanessa. She didn’t know he existed.
“I asked my dad what I should do,” Peter said one day, as he and Michael lay on their backs under the climbing frame at recess.
“What’d he say?”
“Don’t build her a bunch of robots; it might seem like a good idea at the time but in retrospect your descendants and the scientific community at large are going to think it was kind of creepy.””

Him: I don’t date black women. It’s just a preference.
Me: Based on what?
Him: Nothing, it’s just how I feel.
Me: Impossible, deliberate aversions come from somewhere.
Him: Its just a preference, that’s all.
Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.
Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?
Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.
Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?”
Oh, bitch. Read down!
Good gender neutral baby names:
This isn’t even half of my presentation. I just wanted to post these because these answer some questions i get a lot
If you think something needs to be corrected please let me know. My definition for genderqueer might be a little off, because everyone seems to have different definitions for it, so if you have a better definition for that let me know. I also included genderpunk, even though it’s not an official thing because people have told me they like it because it’s like genderqueer but without the reclaimed slur.
I’m open to all feedback about this.
Why do we need a word for cis gender.
Because it’s a thing???
And it makes it so being transgender isn’t this “other” and “strange” thing.
If you wanna be asking questions about why we have words for things, you should probably be asking why we have a word for the plasticy bits at the end of shoelaces, which are called aglets btw. because that’s WAY more useless than the word cisgender but no one questions aglets.
