AND IT IS HTTP://GRAPE-VIOLET.TUMBLR.COM
I have no idea why “grape violet”. They’re kinda similar in color sometimes, I like the sound, and it’s consistent with my loose desire for a fruit theme in my names.
Anyway. I’m slowly moving over most of my blog-follows, so if grape-violet follows you and you follow me, you should try to follow her!
IT’S BEEN NICE BEING MORALLY AMBIGUOUS WITH YOU
I THINK THIS TUMBLR IS BECOMING ENTIRELY TOO STRESSFUL FOR ME
I am seriously thinking about making a new Tumblr. I will use that tumblr to reblog cat pictures and things that are nice to look at and actors and actresses and media people, and I’ll make posts about my art and my writing and things that happen in my life. I’ll start relying more on IRL media to learn about social issues, because while I’ve learned a lot of things about race and race relations on Tumblr, as far as sex, gender, sexuality and feminism I think only 5-10% of people who post about it have any idea what they’re talking about. And I can’t weed out the good from the bad and it is STRESSFUL OKAY
So I’m going to post my new username here when I think of it so you guys can follow me if you want over there. I’ll re-follow most of you whom I follow already!
THIS HAS BEEN A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Sex = male and female
Sex =/= social construct
Calling someone male =/= calling them a man
Thank you and good night. You’re all undoing decades of trans movements trying to get sex accepted as separate, sex and gender are not the same thing, they have never been the same thing, they will never be the same thing.
Gender as it is perceived on Tumblr is basically about as well-thought-out a concept as teaching ravens to fly underwater, but that’s a story for another time.
I had suspected as much! :I I ought to add “books about trans acceptance movements” to the list of things I need to pick up now that I have access to the library at a state university. I’m beginning to think that, on the whole, Tumblr isn’t a good place to learn about gender and sex issues. It’s very personal for people and no one really gets anywhere in an argument.
Are there any specific books somebody could recommend, or should I just wing it?
white people read scholarly books about racism to learn how it works. i read scholarly books about racism to learn how to articulate what i experience every day.
Me being white people in this case—but yeah, still. I totally do that! I can confirm that as my experience :I
