You disregard the majority of my post just so you can say “hurr I disagree” and I’m the rude one?
I listed methods of creating representation using the most powerful tool humanity has ever had, and you still want to tell artists that their work is shit because it doesn’t give representation?
Yeah, their work isn’t shit but it could be better but it’s not.
I don’t care if it hurts feelings. They should do better.
Why? Why should they? They create a character that fits into a setting. Why should they force token minorities in there?
When I sit and read Wheel of Time, I don’t think “there should be trans women in this” I lose myself in the world, there is exactly one character in all fourteen books that could even vaguely be considered trans, and the only reason that character exists is the big bad decided to be a dick when reincarnating one of his head minions.
Does this mean Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson didn’t do good enough? Fourteen books that have kept me entertained for over a third of my life, a story that brought me to actual tears in the final book. Is that not good enough just because of “lack of representation”?
No, it doesn’t mean that at all. You’re just looking for a reason to complain. Why not make an OC and write short stories about them? If you have a knack for drawing, why not try making a webcomic?
Writers do not owe you representation, and they don’t deserve to have their work bastardised by headcanons.
Kat pronouns are so counter productive, whenever i someone refer to themselves as Kat i immediately assume that's their name and then I'm like, why aren't you using pronouns you uneducated fuck. But then those ARE THE PRONOUNS WHAAAAAAAAAAAT
A new food trend is hitting the streets of Culiacan, Mexico, and it seems to be taking off elsewhere around Mexico and the Southwestern United States. The dog is not only not cooked, but isn’t even dead. A small does of halothane knocks it out sufficiently, and provides a mild high to the eater. The puppy is eaten, innards and all, and must be a great delicacy as one vendor already claiming over 10,000 “perro-itos” sold over a six month span. Be on the lookout in your own town for this latest in taste sensations!
"A demisexual is a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone. It’s more commonly seen in but by no means confined to romantic relationships.”
99% of the world would be considered demisexual…but I guess on tumblr, almost everyone acts like a huge slut, so they think they’re ‘demisexual’.
What do you gain from shitting on other people’s identities? Only because you can’t be bothered to understand what demisexuality actually is, you don’t have to invalidate a term that has helped so many people understand themselves better, stop thinking of themselves as “broken”, and find a community.
It’s not “wanting to have sex”, it’s actually having sex, which almost every tumblrina brags about how they have multiple sexual relationships. Identities? Why do people on here act like they’re sexuality dominates their whole identity? Because they’re people with no real personalities who have to act like special snowflakes in order to feel good, hence the reason why the adopt multiple sexualities and shove it down people’s throats. Most people use the excuse “I’m demisexual” for “I can’t actually find a boyfriend/girlfriend”, so they can again, feel like a special snowflake. This is the example of the special snowflake plague that has hit tumblr.
What? So that’s your definition of “sexual orientation”? You realise that you are saying everyone is asexual until they have sex, right? Do you seriously believe that?
Sexual orientation doesn’t dominate most people’s identities but it /is/ a part of it? Are you trying to dispute that? Especially when they are questioning their sexuality, it’s going to be on their mind a lot.
Do you seriously believe this “special snowflake” shit? How about there are people with (gasp!) different experiences than you who finally find a word to describe these experiences, consequently feel less alone. A lot of them felt like there was something wrong with them before realising that there are other people like them. (contrary to your belief - they are happy to have found a community, they don’t want to be “special”, they want to be “not alone”) So they are happy about this term. Wow, what assholes. Better take them down a peg, right?
(Also, tumblr is not a hive mind.)
WTF are you talking about, I never said everyone was “asexual until they’ve had sex”. Your tantrums are getting old. Using the term demisexual or any of these made up sexualities, which I honestly cannot keep track of because tumblr make up so much shit with these things, to decline personal responsibility is a sign of immaturity or instability. People on here need to grow up and quit hiding behind imaginary bullshit.
So let me get this straight. Your definition of “sexual orientation” is “people I have sex with”. Not “people I am sexually attracted to”, but “people I actually have sex with”. That’s what I’m getting from your posts, at least, but please tell me if I’m wrong.
I’m not throwing a tantrum?
Nobody is making up any sexualities, we are making up words to describe already existing sexualities. I fail to see the harm in that.
And I’m not sure what you think we’re declining responsibility for?
People you choose to have sex with are people you’re sexually attracted to. (Unless you’re hiding the fact that you’re gay or bi?) Here are the sexualities:
People. Are. Making. Terms. Up. On. Tumblr. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone made up a term for being sexually attracted to toast. You’re declining responsibility by choosing to make up, or listen to, a fake sexuality and hide behind that, instead of choosing to accept the fact that you have the same struggles as other people, actually grow up and be a mature citizen of society, instead of making up shit and adopting the special snowflake attitude. Grow up. I’m done reblogging this. Bye.
