I walked out my front door today, and right into one of those people who was going door-to-door handing out their religious pamphlets. I'm pretty sure it startled both of us.

We LOVE image captioning here. We are very pro captioning. It can be hard to get used to doing so on a regular basis. I highly recommend following @PleaseCaption

This bot is very non intrusive and will just DM you if you forget to add captions. If you do, you can just delete-and-redraft and add captions without losing any of your info!

(You can find "Delete and Redraft" under the ... icon on your toots.)

The phrase "just to put a smile on it" poses the question What is "it", and where on "it" does the smile go?

I just want to see a girl save a cute boy and fall in love, presented in earnest and not just as a joke or an idea

I don't care about a "strong woman who needs no man," i think girls should be able to indulge in this kind of sexual/power fantasy rather than be expected to rise beyond it

I think we don't see it not because we don't want a girl to save someone but because we're afraid to see boys in feminine positions complete with all the trappings of the role

I think it's a good time to remind everyone that every once in a while it's good to look at ppls bio's and read them and see if something has changed.

like pronouns
oo oo
or when they say NO DM'S UNLESS WE'RE MUTUALS

I am 33.
I am not too old for very short shorts, T-Shirts with funny prints, Pokémon, video games, fangirling, showing affection, electronic music, colorful hair, comics, superheroes, <you name it>,
because, however, I am too old for all those fucks to be given. ☝️

Hey Fedi, question: I really dislike titles, and a form is requiring that I provide one. I don't mind "Mx" and "Ind.", but being cis, I don't want to appropriate something that is more used by enby and agender folks.
Do you feel like I'd be appropriating? Would you object to a (slightly non-conforming) cis dude using them? Do you know of a title that just really means "titles are stupid"?
Boosts ok.

canada has done and continues to do some real fucked up shit to minorities and indigenous peoples and memes about how canada is some sort of utopia of equality irritate me

I think it's silly for cis people to worry about appropriating stuff from trans people and/or non-binary people. Unless you're appropriating claims to oppression that don't apply (and tbh w/ gnc cis ppl they might actually apply) then go hog wild with your presentation, clothing, accessories, pronouns, titles, names, whatever.

We don't want to just create an expanded but equally rigid system of gender. We want everyone to be liberated from the strict gender system that controls our behaviors
