transphobes: I refuse to respect your gender or your pronouns
truscum: I refuse to respect your gender or your pronouns
Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.
Man what in the FUCK
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.
A saltire was burned today. I’m still disgusted. People have been stabbed and beaten today. Nazi salutes were thrown infront of a war memorial today. Young people have had abuse hurled at them left and right. Do not ignore this. Do not ignore what’s happening in Glasgow tonight.
if you’re not gaelic or not residing in scotland it is your duty to make this blow up.
under socialism everyone has to wear black skinny jeans. thats what socialism is. that is all marx was ever trying to say
how can you not see ableism as a feminist issue
autistic girls, especially black autistic girls, are misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed because of the focus on white cis boys and how they present as autistic
disabled girls and women often have their consent violated, both in medical procedures and otherwise, our bodies and minds are often not considered are own and we are dismissed as not having the capacity to make our own decisions
on top of that many disabled girls are seen as delusional and their speaking out about the abuse they have face, by whatever communication method, is often seen as them making things up and over reacting
many disabled women are fetishised and seen as an outrageous ‘thing’ to fuck, but are not seen as human
disabled girls, especially physically disabled girls, do not live up to ideas of beauty in our society and often have extreme self esteem issues
disabled women and girls face more shit than you could ever know and I need you to understand
Ableism. Is. A. Feminist. Issue.
"on top of that many disabled girls are seen as delusional and their speaking out about the abuse they have face, by whatever communication method, is often seen as them making things up and over reacting."
This is such a huge problem in the mental health field in addition to the physical health field, and we need to start talking about it. A huge number of mentally disabled children, especially those who are institutionalized, are continually abused by their caretakers, and they often aren’t believed even if they are able to speak up about it.
For readings on the correlation in horror between puberty and the monstrous, see:
I will add Carol Clover’s Men, Women, and Chain Saws here, although she’s concerned more with identification, monstrous-feminine as men’s horror, and the maternal aspects of possession tales (including a section on possession as oral penetration). Although both Creed and Clover are important feminist horror theorists who work in Psychoanalytical lenses, Barbara Creed talks more about transformation than Carol Clover does. And transformation is key to horror movies about how women are terrifying.
For variations on a theme, watch Ginger Snaps, Carrie, and Teeth together.

I’m 90000% sure I wrote the text below this but it doesn’t link to (probably ff) anywhere. it’s important to keep sources in posts so that you don’t disorient authors about their own pasts,
Hi guys! Money’s been a bit tight lately, and I need a bit of a buffer… thankfully, I’ve had much more time as of late for personal art, so I’ve decided to open up commissions! EMAIL ME AT email@example.com IF YOU’RE INTERESTED!
As explained above, I am doing FULLBODY, BUST and ICON commissions! You can choose to have em in Black & White, Grayscale, or Full Color! Here’s a repeat of the info above, except with 400% more commission examples:
Black & White: $45
Full Color: $70
+ additional character: $25
+ background: $25
examples of full color commissions: 1, 2, 3, 4
examples of full grayscale commissions: 1, 2, 3, 4
examples of full B&W commissions: 1, 2, 3, 4
Black & White: $30
Full Color: $45
+ additional character: $15
+ background: $15
examples of color bust commissions: 1, 2, 3, 4
examples of grayscale bust commissions: 1, 2, 3, 4
examples of B&W bust commissions: 1, 2, 3, 4
What you will get:
- a hi-res PNG of the final commission
- a layered PSD so you can root around and deconstruct how i made it
- a link to the process video! I will probably be doing these commissions over livestream, so I’ll save the capture and give you the means to view it!
WHAT I WILL DRAW: pretty much anything! I don’t really have many boundaries as to what I will draw for these commissions, but I do reserve the right to turn down requests if I find them too offensive for my tastes. I don’t really see that happening too often, though! Also, I tend to jump around a lot in terms of ‘style’ and treatment, so please let me know if you want your commission to look specifically like how I’ve done another piece (cel shading vs. paintey, lineless vs inkwash etc etc etc)!
Additionally, since I’ll most likely be doing these commissions over livestream, please let me know if you’d like me to sync up my schedule with yours so that you can watch the commission get done, IN REAL TIME! hohmygod!!!! I’m also more than willing to answer questions and stuff like that during the stream. Also, when I’m done, I’ll post it up here on tumblr and pimp the SHIT outta ya, haha!
Payment will be coursed through PayPal, and as much as possible I’d like payment upfront, although I am flexible and can settle for 50% upon starting, and 50% on delivery if upfront payment is not an option. Yer gonna have to sign a contractual agreement, though! (Icon commissions are an exception though, those are upfront payments only.)
Thank you all so much for your time! Reblogs and signal boosts are always super duper appreciated!!! ilu all 5ever!!!!!!!!!!!
GUYS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS POOP’S ART!!!! He’s SO creative and does the BEST COLORS OH MY GOD COMMISSION HIM YOU CRAZY PEEPS!!!
GO COMMISSION DAVE
Joseph Stalin raises his head, a sly twinkle in his eye as he meets the bald man’s suggestive gaze. “Walter…” He purrs, dragging his tongue along the underside of his mustache in anticipation. “I see you’ve finally arrived.”
"Oh, Walter," The man chuckled, mustache quivering in delight. "I am the police.”
