Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.
Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.
Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.

SCREAMS SAVE HIM
Welp, glad you really like my blog (normally) and I’m sorry if the post offended you. I reblog posts for various reasons. They
- made me laugh
- made me smile
- made me think
- made me angry
The only thing that was “transphobic” about that post would be the first comment, which I did not agree with.
The gif of the man’s reaction to finding out his girlfriend was trans is to be expected, you know. She’d been lying to him for their entire relationship, then SHABLAM! I’m not the sex you thought I was!
And when he stands up and throws over the chair, I believe that is from a different part of the episode. You can see, as you’re watching his face work through things, that there’s a jump in the gif. I have not actually watched that episode (or that show, for that matter) and I believe that’s his response to something said to him.
In summation, I did not view it as transphobic and will not apologize for posting it, only for your discomfort.
this is why i get angry at people. this is why i insult them. if you’re nice and ask them why they would do such a thing, they jump to the “sorry you’re offended” excuse instead of the “sorry i posted something extremely problematic” and they don’t want to correct themselves. they see nothing wrong with their behavior.
i would rather vent and call them the scum they are and laugh at their wounded cis pride than get some half ass fake apology.
the content reblogged in question was a transphobic gif from a jerry springer episode (which was probably scripted) in which a woman reveals to her cis male partner that she is trans, a titlecard from the show comes up saying “she is really a he” and the man explodes in anger. the post is complete with transphobic comments, the first one talking about how the cis male probably assaulted the transwoman.
you can see here where Alyssa thinks that the man’s response was to be expected. trans people should expect their partner to freak out when you disclose your identity, it’s only normal says Alyssa. you can see where Alyssa has said that the transwoman was lying to her partner by not disclosing her identity AND saying that the transwoman is not actually a woman.
Alysa doesn’t view this as transphobic. they didnt view the caption from the show that said “she is really a he!” as transphobic. they didnt view the man’s violent outburst as transphobic. they didnt even view their own speech towards transwomen as transphobic.
and that is why i am not polite to transphobes, least of all casual transphobes. because they will all pull shit like this. they will ALL say “well i dont think its offensive, so i’m not sorry for posting it and i won’t learn from my mistakes but i’m sorry you were bothered by it” suddenly making the content questionable only by my viewpoint rather than from an objective viewpoint.
cis people do not care. cis people do not want to learn. cis people are not our allies. cis people are never going to understand how harmful these “jokes” are. and you will never catch me trying to play nice with them again.
First of all, I genuinely was sorry that what I’d posted insulted you. I didn’t interpret it in the same manner as you because, for one thing, my mind probably works in a different way. I STILL don’t see it as transphobic.
Secondly, “wounded cis pride”? My pride isn’t wounded. I’m shocked that you’re behaving in this way. I was being civil and explaining my viewpoint. You say cis as if it’s a bad thing. Cis shaming isn’t helping anything. How dare not have a problem with the body I was born in?! That’s just utterly reprehensible! I should be burned at the stake!
Thirdly, I assumed she was lying to him because if they were in an actual RELATIONSHIP this kind of information would have been shared beforehand. Why the hell would they be on Jerry Springer if it wasn’t a confession?
Now, I admit that the subtitle on the bottom, “She is Really a He” is offensive. I just didn’t look that closely at the bottom of the gif and examined the cis man’s face.
You can expect surprise from a partner when you’re revealing something so big about yourself. Gender identity, sexual identity, fuck. I’d be surprised if I found out my boyfriend’s hair was a different color. OH DAMN, HE DIDN’T TAKE EVERYTHING IN STRIDE AUTOMATICALLY. HE EXPECTS TIME TO ADJUST? OR TIME TO FIGURE OUT IF THAT’S WHAT HE REALLY WANTS IN A PARTNER?! FUCK HIM.
And, as I mentioned before, his chair flipping? I believe it is in response to something UNRELATED. Don’t pull things out of context to make yourself sound like a goddamn vigilante. You’re not helping yourself.
Now, when the hell was MY speech transphobic? Seriously. Clarify that one for me, because I’m just not seeing it.
You know, I really respected you for speaking up about something I posted being upsetting. I wish I could still respect you.
By the way, because you didn’t actually ASK, I reblogged that post because the man’s facial expression was humorous. Did I care what he was making a face about? Not particularly. Did I care if he was an actor? No. His face looked funny. AND NOW I’M A GODDAMN TRANSPHOBE, APPARENTLY.
[Trans* person tells you something is transphobic]
"NAHHH I DON’T THINK SO! It’s all good [false apology]"
It’s not just transphobic because of the caption, it’s also because he was angry at his partner for being trans*, something that shouldn’t have to be explained before every relationship? Why should someone’s gender be an issue if they are trans*?
What the actual fuck is cis shaming? Please explain what’s so bad about being cis? Because I’m laughin at you right now
Why do you think trans* = not being happy with the body you’re born in? It’s not about anatomy, it’s about gender. So +1 on the transphobia for you again!!!
“Did I care what he was making a face about? Not particularly. Did I care if he was an actor? No. His face looked funny. AND NOW I’M A GODDAMN TRANSPHOBE, APPARENTLY.” While you’re at it why don’t you post some racist and homophobic shit for the facial expression, sounds good to me!!!!
Again, it was a genuine apology. I don’t like upsetting people generally.
How the hell do you know he’s angry at his partner for being transgender? What I took from it was that he was angry for not being informed beforehand. Everyone has the right to decide what they want from a partner in their relationship, maybe that just wasn’t something he wanted. Everyone has the right to hide things about themselves, but if you’re going to let your significant other know something so important to your being, you should expect at least A LITTLE surprise. And if you’re so goddamn concerned about their reaction, don’t do it on TV in front of a crowd.
There’s nothing wrong with being cis. There’s nothing wrong with being trans*. There’s nothing wrong with being yourself. Cis shaming is when someone tries to shame someone else for being cis. Just like slut shaming is when someone tries to shame someone else for being a “slut”. Just because they’re shaming you doesn’t mean there’s actually anything to be ashamed of.
Transphobia does not equal slight misinformation. I apologize for have been wrong with the fact about the anatomy.
All in all, fuck all y’all for trying to make me out as a bad person when you can’t even see that you’re attacking a person for a gif on a website. I’m done. COCKADOODLE DOO, MOTHA FUCKAS
I don’t know what just happened but Alyssa is literally the sweetest person so if you cant see that i suggest cha cha sliding out the door
UK grading system
Time to move to the UK
Dude I would kill for that grading scale
wait, so what is it in america then?
Anything below that is an F
is that real??
Right, here’s the crack.
The UK scale is wrong, that’s the private school grading scale. At GCSE and A Level they have A* down to U, no + or - grades (although at advanced GCSE Maths you can get an Â but that’s irrelevant right now). Grade boundaries are based on how well everyone else did so there is always the same proportion of grades across the country no matter how hard the test is in order to standardize the grading from previous years.
So this post is essentially just wrong.
Among the things Moffat talked about during the 11th Hour panel was John Hurt. Apparently, when he got the role and later when they were shooting TDotD he kept asking him if he can tell people he’s the Doctor and does it count and but Steven will the fans like me can I do conventions but please tell me i r e a l l y am ~the doctor~ ohmygod
that is the cutest thing oh my god
