if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you

Think this is the only song these guys ever made but I got hooked on it after hearing a snippet from an old Gervais XFM show.
the only thing that would make les mis better:
adding a Cosette solo right before one day more in which she goes on a monologue about her love for Marius and her relationship with her mysterious father figure and about how complicated everything is for a minimum of five minutes while Marius just bangs his head against a tree
straight white guys more like
a brony called me unattractive
because i have hair on my legs
You know what I find unattractive? Narcissism, fishing for compliments, refusing to believe that someone finds you unattractive, and feeling the need to throw someone’s hobby in like it’s an insult
cool anyway im beautiful
If someone ever tells you a certain song is important to them you should turn it up and lay on your bed and close your eyes and really listen to it even if its 10 minutes long because at the end you will know that person much better I think
My love for this post is unbelievable.
I had a dream the other night that they made a Night Vale movie and that Cecil was introduced with a very dramatic shot of him walking down the station hallway until it pans down and you see he’s wearing light-up sketchers
This is an important message on how privilege really works.
a very good post.
privilege is not a sin or moral failing that you have to correct, nor does it mean you have nothing relevant to say; tumblr uses the concept completely wrong most of the time.
the actual sense of the term is more like ‘defaultness’ — being the baseline in society’s eyes, not standing out, not being the sticking-up nail or the squeaky wheel. and the reasonable response to realizing this is not to apologize and feel bad — and it’s certainly not to try to be less default, that goes to really weird places — but to consider your new level of awareness and apply it to the society around you. it’s a useful tool. it’s like a UV camera that shows up fingerprints and bloodstains so you can investigate a crime scene. it’s like a polarizing camera filter that cuts out glare so you can see details. once you’re aware of what society deems ‘other’ or ‘exception’, you can see where to focus change to fix it.
the theory of privilege is a lens for seeing society more clearly, not a hammer to hit people with.
