MTV has just launched a pilot of a new TV show called ‘Faking It’. Here is the synopsis from MTV’s own website:
‘Faking It’ is a new romantic comedy about two best friends who love each other — in slightly different ways. After numerous failed attempts to become popular, the girls are mistakenly outed as lesbians, which launches them to instant celebrity status. Seduced by their newfound fame,…
Uh…… you mean like this?
wow. let it be known that tumblr legitimately changed my opinion on something today.
I’m sorry but is there an advert about toilet paper in there. They are legitimately trying to sex up toilet paper.
Honestly, people say that because they DO have an issue with queer people. If they do not see queer folk, they can pretend they do not exist. Hell, even if they have queer friends they expect them to hide their lives from them because they can pretend they are straight/cis. They have a major issue with queer people because if they didn’t, they wouldn’t care about it being thrown in their face. Their issue is that if queer people are openly queer then they have to acknowledge that queer person is real and an actual person and that terrifies/upsets them. If anyone ever tells you they have nothing against queer people, but don’t want queer people to ever talk about it, they have major issues with queer people and do not want to confront their own queerphobia.
chirex asked: Except in cases of rare genetic disorder like Kleinfelter's Syndrome, there is only female and male, XX and XY chromosomes.
Except in cases of rare cis enlightenment, there are only cis people who don’t know anything about biology and cis people who parrot eighth grade biology at trans people, uninformed assholes and willfully ignorant pissfrogs.
Why does every casual cis person to stumble along assume they know more about a subject they probably haven’t even thought about since freshman year of high school than women whose lives revolve around it, and who routinely have to educate their own doctors?
Do they assume everything they learned about playing house in kindergarten is all their is to marriage? Are they confused when players don’t tear the flags off each other in the Superbowl? Do they get into their first college calculus class and scream “This is bullshit! There’s only plus and minus and times and long dividing!” No. They realize what they were taught as children is a simplified version of the world. So why is it they can’t remember that simple truth when talking to trans women about our own biology?
