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.

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

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
