Redefining Body Image: [TW: rape, fat shaming] →
lavender-labia: sugaredvenom: thefatgrackle: sugaredvenom: The discussion about fat people and rape NEVER HAPPENS ENOUGH. We’re getting raped all over the place because we’re ‘easy targets’ and then told we should be thankful??? I have not once, EVER seen a thin…

brandx: The scene is Stockholm’s Museum of Modern Art, on Sunday, April 15th. The event is the celebration of World Art Day, and the 75th birthday of the Swedish Artists Organisation. Sweden’s female Minister of Culture, Lena Adelsohn-Liljeroth, approaches the cake with a knife in her hand. She performs…
@nataliereed84: Oh, you're cis? Nice to meet you! So, what's your vagina like?
@nataliereed84: Wow! You look great! I never would have gussed you were cis!
@Mowgli3: "But how am I supposed to learn what cis bodies are like if I can't ask you everything about yours?"
@AndyTehNerd: But how can you be sure that's your gender? What if that's just what you were raised to believe?
@nataliereed84: But are you SURE you want to remain male? How do you know for sure this is right for you?
@AndersStarmark: Of course I support you. But I just want you tone it down. You're scaring people, and scared people are dangerous.
@nataliereed84: But "cis" people might regret not transitioning! We need strict criteria for diagnosing cisgenderism to prevent that.
@AndersStarmark: I don't believe Cises get raped. Who'd fuck one of them?
@LanaLangton: Yeah you can come clubbing with us but only if you promise to act like a girl.
@AndersStarmark: This magic ring will keep your gender the way it is.
@nataliereed84: People with mental health disorders might think they're cis when they're really not. We can't trust their choices.
@LanaLangton: You must declare your cisism immediately when you meet me or any of my friends else you are deceiving us.
@nataliereed84: It's not my fault I'm not attracted to cis ppl. I just find your bodies icky. It's just my sexual orientation!
@nataliereed84: No, but what's your REAL name? You know, the one you actually chose.
@nataliereed84: Wait, so you think you're a womon-born-womon? Isn't that just equating sex with gender and buying into the patriarchy?
@LanaLangton: sorry if you find what we say offensive it's just we're not used to actually talking to cis people & its only 'banter'
@nataliereed84: Look son, I understand you identify as your birth sex, but why can't you just transition to being a butch lesbian?
@AndersStarmark: No, I'm sorry, you may not use the ungendered restroom. A gendered one? No, never heard of them. Wouldn't work anyway.
@nataliereed84: Isn't it a bit selfish to go around claiming you're really your birth sex and expect us all to just go along with it?
@nataliereed84: You may think you're a woman because you're XX, but I think of you as male, and you need to respect my beliefs.
@nataliereed84: But if we let cis men use the men's room, what's to stop one of them from raping your children!?!?
@kinetictheorist: I'm glad your granddad died before finding out your cis
@PeregrineTwist: so you mean your cock is ATTACHED!? How do you sterilise and wash it properly?
@maeveregan: Oh, your new partner is cis? So do you actually have sex or what?
@nataliereed84: Son, you say that you're a boy, but I think you're a bit too young to be making that decision.
@nataliereed84: Honey, I know you think you want to remain male, but are you sure this isn't just a mid-life crisis?
@AndersStarmark: I'm a psychologist. I can help you cope with your reluctance to transition. Just relax. Let me help.
@AndersStarmark: You know, for a cis you're pretty attractive. I'd even call you fuckable.
@MaeveCaitKelly: Wow! You're such a convincing cis person, I just thought you were normal! Well done.
@sashapixlee: Dude, she looks like she might be cis. Be careful, bro
@sasugakirin: Just because "grue" is used to hurt you cis people all the time doesn't mean I can't reclaim it.
@BecciCath: No, Cis Identity Disorder shouldn't be removed from the DSM, I mean, being cis is a lifestyle choice, so u must b mad
@Dru_Marland: You're cis? -honestly, I'd never have known, you look so good
@AndersStarmark: If you cis people didn't scare people of we'd have opposite sex marriage a long time ago!
@Dru_Marland: "Are they real?" (gropes stranger's breasts)
@AndersStarmark: I think you're taking it a little hard when someone truegenders you. It's just a label, it's nothing serious.
@LadyJaya: You mean your breasts started growing when you were 12? Can I feel them? They seem so real!

Tributes to the White Gods of Earth
brandx: Swedes are imagined as and imagine themselves as the most white - therefore the most aesthetically perfect and genetically valuable - of all Western nations on earth (and ultimately, of all humankind). At the same time, Swedes have proportionally adopted the most non-white children in the world, and numerous Swedes have entered into intimate relationships with non-whites and accordingly...
The Foundations of Whiteness
brandx: The historical construction of Swedishness can be traced to the pre-eminence of the Swedes, along with the Norwegians and Danes, in the construction of the white race as the elite of homo sapiens. In a scientific discourse hegemonic for almost 200 years, the Swedes and other Scandinavians were considered the most physically and aesthetically perfect people on earth. The nation’s...
gorgonetta: Oh my god, this week took me from virtuously determining that I would eat frugally for the next few weeks so I could save up for a tattoo to “DO YOU KNOW WHAT’S A GOOD INVESTMENT, RUM AND PIZZA ARE A GOOD INVESTMENT.” And they are woooooooooooooooooooooo This is my entire life up until now
gorgonetta: I had a lengthy conversation with a co-worker about Sharon Needles today. I’m telling you people, librarianship is the fuckin’ bomb. I feel cheated. If I bring up Sharon Needles or anything else I am interested in at work they just look at me funny and change the subject. They’re still trying to get over the fact that I like comic books that you read backwards.
alwaysanoriginal: You know those book hangovers when you wake up in the morning after finishing the book the night before and the FIRST thing you think about is the book, and then you have all these feelings still and you don’t know what to do with them, and no one around understands, and it feels like reality is still moving around you but you’re stuck in that book hangover and still cannot...

Come help vote FOR gender neutral pronouns →
kriegspeil: Swedish doesn’t have an equivalence of the singular they, and in recent years the pronoun “hen” has gained more popularity (it’s like a mix between han and hon which are the two gendered pronouns). Obviously, there are also a fuckload of haters. They’re talking about it on Swedish Radio P3 right now, and there’s a little poll about if it’s good or bad to have a neutral pronoun, and...

tofslan: You guys, I am super disappointed in everything. When I said “don’t do anything I wouldn’t do” that really did include running rampantly transphobic blogs dedicated to denying the femaleness of trans women. Don’t do that shit.
