2. Anonymous asked: you are a pretentious prick who is also a transphobic piece of trash, go to hell



    There is so much of this stuff in my ask box, and most of it not even anonymous, but I don’t want to call out any particular user because I know they’ll then get a lot of hateful asks and the cycle will just continue.

    First off, there’s a comma splice in your ask. I just have to let you know that, on account of how I’m a pretentious prick.

    I hope that I’m not transphobic. I’ve been public and vocal in my support for the rights of trans people for years, and I’ve tried over the years to amplify trans voices, from T Cooper to Stephen Ira Beatty, rather than pretending to be able to speak for them. 

    Look, I am a person, and I am not a particularly good one. I am screwed up and make a lot of mistakes. But I am not a piece of trash. I would imagine that you are also screwed up and make a lot of mistakes, but you aren’t a piece of trash either.

    But it is still hurtful—very hurtful—to hear people call me a piece of trash. It just makes me sad to hear, the way I think it would make most people sad to hear. The certainty and lack of nuance in that characterization reflects a broader lack of nuance in online discourse these days that just bums me out. 

    Stuff like this? It’s not activism. It’s hate mongering. 

    And it’s not even correct. Just because you levy an accusation at someone doesn’t make you right about it.

    This is the kind of stuff that will ruin the internet, if we let it. I hope we can get ourselves together and end this so we can have good things.

    the constant struggle of “should I reread one of my favorite books because it’s so amazing and it makes me happy every time i read it” or “should i read a new book and expand my horizons” is SO FUCKING HARD

    hey fun fact: puttanesca literally translates to “whore sauce” in italian because it was cheap and quick to make so prostitutes made it before going out at night

    I’m italian and I’ve always thought to myself “it can’t be that, there must be some other english pun or something”. But apparently there isn’t. Count Olaf speaks italian.
