Awkward Mermaid Adventures

I'm an awkward mermaid, and these are my adventures as I learn how to life, and also, at the same time, to tumblr.

I HAVE A NEW URL

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

UPDATE

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

  • Teenage Expectations: A big group of friends, sneaking out of my house, making out, late nights under the stars, crying on my best friend's shoulder, passing notes in class, going on adventures, getting out of my town, campfires, telling secrets, feeling what it's like to fall in love, not caring about how you look, not caring about people's opinions, road trips, parties, driving around, getting lost, endless laughter, happiest years.
  • Teenage Reality: Feeling lonely, staying in, waking up early, going to school, worrying about your looks, worrying about your weight, crying over people's crudeness, crying far too often, school, homework, bitches, people trying to ruin things in your life to make you unhappy, being stressed, trapped in the town I hate, feeling nothing remotely close to love, keeping every little emotion bottled up, spending too much time on the internet, waiting for the better years to come to you.

Clarification because you all failed biology

transradfem:

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
