Hi Lemon! I just want to clarify that I wasn't saying you can't be angry or swear. I certainly do hear swear words frequently. (I'm in college) The intent behind my comment was to say that when you respond to posts in an attacking way, rather than explaining your rationale, it doesn't cause people to take interest in your side. I also want to clarify that I do not discontinue reading, I simply am less inclined to see the humanity and compassion behind your views. I hope that makes sense!

If you stop reading because someone said ‘fuck’ that says more about you than it does about me. I explain my rationale quite sufficiently regardless of how pissed off I am and frankly you can’t have read many posts of mine if you’re accusing me of ‘attacking’ people when I respond to them, as swears and anger in a post, again, are actually pretty rare for me.

Likewise what you’re doing here is called ‘tone policing’ which is a silencing tactic that has been employed for centuries. People don’t listen when I’m polite and don’t swear either, so don’t act like it’s me saying ‘fuck’ that is doing that when I’m actually pretty nice most of the time.

Your asks -both of them- were unnecessary, rude and a silencing tactic that is wholly unappreciated, and yes, you are telling me I am not allowed to be angry about having my rights stripped away.

If you cannot see the humanity in me because I’m upset that I was misgendered or told that I don’t own my own body then that says a fuck-ton more about you as a person than it does about me.

I love how those white bashing blogs act as if we can help how we look. They insult how we look, call us ugly.I remember once the whitepeoplestealingculture blog told this gorgeous young woman that she was ugly as sin and that she should die cause she was wearing dreads and it broke my heart because she had serious self esteem issues and cried really hard. These blogs don't realize the emotional damage they can cause people-then again they probably don't care because"all white people should die"

Did the person who wrote this have “He Said She Said” by Ashley Tisdale playing in the background?

Never have we said we want any honky to die. I do admit that white people who wear stolen artifacts of POC culture are as far from gorgeous as that “My precious” thing from the Lord of the Rings, but to wish death upon them? Never happened by any one of us beautiful women that run this blog. *Nicki Minaj voice* Do you fucking research.

I also think it’s hilarious how this mayo stain cares more about the racist’s feelings than the millions of the POC that have serious self-esteem issues from being told their skin is ugly, hair is disgusting, and culture is anything but beautiful due to white supremacy.

But when a white person wears/does/”is” the POC culture, it IS beautiful and gorgeous, etc. Not to mention Blackface, Redface, Brownface, and seeing people actually dress up as you in a demeaning way every year for Halloween or for a [insert continent with POC] themed party. Let’s forget about how white people accessorize POC as if we’re some necklace to wear along with their white privilege outfit.

Nooo, let’s all pay attention to the poor white girl stealing from an oppressed culture. She “cried really hard”.

Why is their no such thing as reverse racism or white fetishization. I worked hard born from poverty and earned what I got today through judgement cause where I work is no place for a women and people say it's cause I was privileged with a silver spoon. Saying how weak I am & I am un cultured and loose. easy to control. All white women are when you learn how to train one. But that's fine right because the hate I felt all my life, it's not real, since there's no such thing as reverse racism.

fucknofetishization answered:

How is that our fault though? You do realize that fetishization of white women occurs because you’re the standard of beauty and womanhood. The fetishization of women of color and white women are not the same. ”Reverse racism” is white supremacy backfiring on you, your people are immensely infatuated with white supremacy to the extent of not only hurting people of color but yourself as well. If you want this to stop, stop your obsession with white supremacy and dismantle it.  -G

Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality. 

It is just…so fucking weird how threatened people feel when it comes to Asexuality.  I still can’t wrap my mind around it.

I’m so happy this post is being reblogged by LBGT+ people who aren’t asexual. I keep on reading posts by non-ace LGBT+ people of support to the ace community, and of being stunned by this reaction by a movement which should know better than to judge. AND THAT MAKES THIS ACE SO FREAKING HAPPY. The woman in the first photo expresses my sentiment. I know I belong in the queer/LGBTQIA movement. I want to belong. But I just don’t know if I’m welcome. I’m so happy that there are so many people on Tumblr who do not fall into the catagory of outright refusal of asexuality.

I know not a lot of people understand asexuality. And I know there’s confusion about it, about our experiences, and about how we fit in the movement. But let’s talk about this. Let’s have this conversation.

I mostly don’t delve into the ace tags, but I hear there’s a lot of ace-hate that and I really don’t get it.  I don’t understand how asexuality is threatening.

You know what I (as a queer ace-spectrum person) find most threatening?  Getting unwanted sexual unwanted advances from both queer and straight people. I’ve gotten them from people of all spectrums and it always makes me profoundly uncomfortable, and often unsafe.  It just boggles my mind how people are upset by the concept of asexuality.  That’s like getting really mad at someone who isn’t hungry.  What’s the point?  Just shut up eat your own sandwich. (And stop chewing on me.)

Wow, the fuck the people in those images.

Nobody has the right to disrespect anybody else’s sense of self. It may not be for, you but that does not give you the right to be an asshole.

We really need to push more for LGBTQIA+ to be a standard, instead of just LGBT, especially considering that even the B and T are already invisible in much of the community.

Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.

Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.

It really, really does bear repeating.

I couldn’t be further from ace, but for serious.

If we’re not in this together, we’re not in this at all.

This makes me so angry. I have friends who are ace, and they are just as much a part of the queer community as I am.

We need to embrace asexuality and treat it with the respect that it deserves.
