if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you

"abnormalize" by Ling Tosite Sigure (凛として時雨) - Psycho Pass


“These days, before we talk about misogyny, women are increasingly being asked to modify our language so we don’t hurt men’s feelings. Don’t say, “Men oppress women” – that’s sexism, as bad as any sexism women ever have to handle, possibly worse. Instead, say, “Some men oppress women.” Whatever you do, don’t generalise. That’s something men do. Not all men – just some men.

This type of semantic squabbling is a very effective way of getting women to shut up. After all, most of us grew up learning that being a good girl was all about putting other people’s feelings ahead of our own. We aren’t supposed to say what we think if there’s a chance it might upset somebody else or, worse, make them angry. So we stifle our speech with apologies, caveats and soothing sounds. We reassure our friends and loved ones that “you’re not one of those men who hate women”.

What we don’t say is: of course not all men hate women. But culture hates women, so men who grow up in a sexist culture have a tendency to do and say sexist things, often without meaning to. We aren’t judging you for who you are but that doesn’t mean we’re not asking you to change your behaviour. What you feel about women in your heart is of less immediate importance than how you treat them on a daily basis.

You can be the gentlest, sweetest man in the world yet still benefit from sexism. That’s how oppression works.

Of course all men don’t hate women. But all men must know they benefit from sexism (via punkrockmermaid)

The first time the Incredibles took over a post and I am so happy about it

reminder that stratogale was in high school when she got sucked into the airplane propeller and died

do you ever just think edna sat in the back of the funeral in the little hometown church
the sound of sniffling and crying surrounding her
wearing a floor-length black dress and a black veil to hide her puffy eyes as she takes out her sketchbook and starts ripping all her design ideas for costumes out
whispering “no capes. no capes. no capes.” over and over, knowing that it was her fault a high school student died a horrific, painful death to the point where they can’t have a body to bury

WHY

Anonymous asked: Hi, you posted an ask about a Japanese woman working at restaurants who is tired of having people practice their shitty japanese on the staff; would you say it is ever appropriate to speak to restaurant staff (or staff in general) in Japanese? I was at a Japanese market recently with a friend and he asked why I didn't respond to the cashier in Japanese (I'm currently studying and she was speaking Japanese) and I couldn't really explain why but it would have made me uncomfortable / feel rude?

thisisnotjapan:

It depends on context, but if you’re in the US and you didn’t feel right speaking Japanese to her, then you shouldn’t speak Japanese! She’s working a retail job, which generally isn’t very fun in the first place, and if your level of Japanese isn’t fluent, then that makes her job harder to figure out what you’re saying—you’d essentially be treating her as an unpaid tutor and adding stress to her life. Especially since Japanese is such a popular language that many people probably do it to her already. Lastly, she might not even be Japanese, or she might be ethnic Japanese but not speak Japanese.

My family/some of my friends are confused as to why I don’t speak Japanese at Kinokuniya, when I go to restaurants, etc. in the US and yep this is basically it.
