Shout out to interracial, bisexual, pansexual, genderfluid, and otherwise “gray” or “mixed” people who get to deal with shit from pretty much every angle all while having your identity erased, ignored, or redefined for you whenever another group sees fit. I see you, love you, and want to make things better.

why havent i seen any aus where bucky has a prosthetic limb. why havent i seen any art of it. you’re all missing out on the opportunity to have and au with pre serum Steve and Buck as angry disabled kids who fight ableism and Bucky gets in a lot less trouble because of course the kid with one arm couldn’t of punched anyone and Steve and Clint talk in ASL together
SUCCESSFUL HELP WITH INDIVIDUAL EDUCATION FOR LEARNERS WITH DISABILITIES
YES, YES, YES.
OH GOD WHAT IF IT’S AN UNIVERSE WHERE ALL OF THE SUPERHEROES ARE DISABLED AND ARE STUDENTS?
(One of the TAs or teachers needs, NEEDS to know ASL for multiple reasons. Including a homage to a CODA teacher I knew.)
When people think Naoto is a girl and not a trans man
Or gender queer or bigender or just.. yeah. Yeah every time someone in the game says “she” when referring to Naoto I lose a little respect for them.
Filming a rainbow when suddenly.
what the fuck
The gays are angry
You have angered the queers. Institute equal marriage rights in all states and perhaps their wrath shall be impeded.
At least for now….
dragon age shaming!!!
every time I use “they” to refer to a single gender-unknown person on Tumblr, another piece of my grammar-filled heart shatters, and the pieces scatter at the bottom of hell
“They” has been a singular pronoun for hundreds of years, you melodramatic dipshit.
well… actually… no… they is plural. people use they when they should use he, she, or it.
dense motherfucker, the pronoun “they” is an english equivalent for the third person indefinite singular and has been for literally centuries. it remains morphologically and syntactically plural therefore you don’t need to shit your little pantaloons at compromising your surely rock solid grammar rules.
i guarantee every fuckin time you’ve ever had to refer to a person of an unknown gender you’ve used “they” subconsciously. (“The post clerk gave me a message for you.” “Oh, what did they say?”) but you only have a problem with it when people specify it as a pronoun for themselves because you’re a shitlord i fuckin guess.
grammarized straight into hell

"I almost wonder what your design for Merrill would be now—she was, as I recall, the other DA2 character we had the most trouble nailing down." - David Gaider.
Man, we’ve learned so much from 2 to Inquisition. Merrill finally worked for me, by the end. I wouldn’t change her, but knowing how she turned out, I would draw her more like this.
writing trans narratives is hard and confusing even if you live one
i’m torn between realism and negativity vs happy escapist scenarios where nothing goes wrong
because on the one hand it can be really upsetting to have to read the Bad Stuff all the time, while at the same time it can be really frustrating to see some fictional character have life be super easy breezy!
i want to write things that trans people can relate to but that won’t upset them; i want to agree with them that sometimes the process of being trans hurts and sucks hard without making a tragedy of it; i want to remind them that sometimes things work out and sometimes being trans is fun and bright without making light of situations
it’s a tossup and i’ll never be able to appeal to everyone at once but i want to be able to write some of both, not least of all because sometimes i really want to write about how it is rough to be trans, just because it’s cathartic to an extent. it can be really tiring to see every fic have the same ‘being trans sucks!!’ plotline but sometimes i need it
just as sometimes i need happy-go-lucky coming out stories where everyone accepts everyone.
tl;dr cliches are hard to navigate but they exist for a reason
french weed joke:
im disgusted that i understood this so quickly
its on my fuckIN DASH BOARD ARE U KIDDin omg
oh my GOD
We’re all familiar with the sexy-armor problem, right? You play a game or watch a show or flip through some art, and if there’s a lady in armor, it’s like the least useful suit of protective gear ever conceived of.
