Today I learned that I am not two-spirit.
It’s a term I’ve been enamored with—
A body with two souls, two hearts,
A being to bridge the worlds,
To fill in the spaces,
To light the shadows,
To link the poles,
Define the space.
See I was told today
By a legitimate two-spirit person
I always marvel at the ways in which non-white children survive a White supremacist U.S. culture that preys on them. I am equally in awe of the way in which queer children navigate a homophobic public sphere that would rather they did not exist.
Y’all do realize feministsfacts is a blog making fun of the seemingly contradictory things feminists say, and this is just an example of it?
It’s mocking the notion that you can be discriminated on as a man for being effeminate and it’s misogyny, and then it’s also misogyny…

“The only way you can explain the behavior of women in most mainstream comics is that there has to be some sort of orgone accumulator that’s broken and driving everybody crazy. Why else would you be presenting your labia?” laughs Fraction. “Comics have done a lot of fucking wrong to its representations of women, let alone women’s sexuality.”
And maybe that’s what sets Fraction apart—and what makes Sex Criminals his most daring book yet. It’s not just that he realizes that there’s a serious sex problem in comics, or that he knows how to discuss it in incredibly nuanced ways, or even that his work often functions as counterprogramming. It’s that it so obviously pisses him the hell off. And in an industry that often seems trapped in a reductive and inane conversation about whether or not sex in comics is “good” or “bad,” Fraction loves both sex and comics, and loves talking about both in equal proportion to how much sex in most mainstream comics makes him want to facepalm.
This is a great read. mattfractionblog is a smart dude.

So it’s shitty enough when gay men say fucked up things like “I want to date a real man, not a girl.” with their masc4masc shit.
But what gets to me is when bi men buy into this (I’ve seen it on OkC way too many times) and say things like “If you’re a man, actually be a man….

Some of my thoughts on the "rapists are despised" quote:
Oh, sure, we despise rapists. Except when they’re celebrities, or football players, or upstanding members of their communities in every (other) way, or rich (the woman’s just trying to get her hands on his cash,…
The claim that “rapists are despised” ignores the fact that it is the inaccurate and stereotypical image of rapists that is despised. Yes, in our cultural mind’s eye, rapists are monsters. The problem is that most offenders don’t look like monsters — instead, they often seem trustworthy, charming, caring, and respectable. These individuals are the opposite of “despised,” they are too often lauded as “nice guys” and community leaders who could never commit this horrific crime.
