being told i was smart and above average from a young age was probably one of the worst things to happen to me because now i have a complex and question my entire existence when i dont excel at something right away
y’all getting really specific like “where are all the indie boys with messy shoulder length brown hair and blue eyes who are between 6’ and 6’4 whose favourite vampire weekend album is contra but knows mvotc is their best album and drinks their coffee black with 3.2 sugars and smokes cheap cigarettes on a balcony at 2:23 am” like….. chill
there are 10 kinds of people: those who believe in the gender binary, and those who don’t think bisexuality is transphobic
me: stop being racist please
family: listen… liberal hippie trash ….u dont know anything abotu the world….

Yeah, what about us? You literally do not give a flying fuck about us until we’re convenient to make a point regarding gender identity politics. Then we’re the magical third sex, the proof that people can be female while being male or vice versa. Only THEN are we worth mentioning.
The thing that irks me is that only our existence is worth a casual mention. Not our trauma, the unneeded and/or unwanted surgeries, the constant reminders that SOMETHING about us wasn’t GOOD ENOUGH AS IT WAS. That we didn’t fit into a neat little bullshit box of boy or girl so parts of us were stripped away and removed to make the box fit us better.
The fact that things about us were so wrong, so abnormal and not right that our bodies, our genitals were cut into, excised, pulled back, tucked and stitched should be offensive. It should offend you to hear that children, persons under the age of eighteen, were forced to undergo unnecessary, painful surgeries just to make their parents feel better. JUST TO GIVE THEIR PARENTS A MORE DEFINED SENSE OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAD A BOY OR GIRL.
Even though there is nothing wrong about us.
So no, not ‘what about intersex people?’ You do not have the right to speak about us in such a fashion and certainly not over us. We aren’t political puppets. We’re people. We matter.
Reminder that I’ll be competing in a Smash Bros Melee tournament streamed on twitch here in a couple hours (8pm EST), and I’ll be trying to talk to the chat when I can.
Yup I’m going to keep posting all this crime against our people!
WHAT THE FUCK??????????????
“We are here to serve & protect”FUCK THE POLICE
AT this point why do we even bother
Fuck this man
Can someone tell me where/when each these gifs are from?
Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.
Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)
There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident), that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.
According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.
According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.
Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)
The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]
Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.
It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.
And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.
PLEASE SHARE!!! EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON.
