IF YOUR IDEA OF SATIRE IS MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE IN THE EXACT SAME WAY THAT THEY ARE ALREADY MADE FUN OF EVERY FUCKING DAY THEN YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT SATIRE MEANS

People want to believe gender is something that’s essential, and people repeat these essentialist ideas all the time. “Oh, women do that” and “Oh, men do that” and the reality is that all women don’t anything. We as individuals do what we do, you know, and sometimes that’s informed by gender and sometimes it’s just who we are. And I think all that just makes people really, really uncomfortable because they don’t want to think about who they are.

terf: science is just a branch of patriarchal power, used to regulate and damage the lives of women, esp in reducing us down to our genitals and acting as though biology is destiny

punwitch:

Cis people get kind of mad when you point out that their gender assignment comes from a quick glance at their junk and a pen mark on a sheet of paper by a random dude with some degrees and not the Gods Themselves From On High In The Great Citadel Of Genitalia

#abuse #recommendations #MF derse #onceuponymous


onceuponymous: I've got two fanfic recs! "Just Saying Get Better", at ribswrites on tumblr, is an incomplete but good fanfic following the trolls as patients and the beta kids as orderlies at a mental hospital. It's not skeevy that I've seen - there's research behind the diagnoses and everyone is treated like a person, not a label. Reading it was actually really helpful for me, but you probably want to check it out on your own (cont.)

The onther fanfic rec is Brainbent, at brainbent on tumblr. Another mental hospital one, except which characters are patients and which re orderlies depends on which they best fit, not canon species. The mods are really nice, it runs on input from readers, lots of representiation and research and character development. There’s a trans character whose reason for needing help is not based on gender, several sexualities, Bro’s abuse explored… it’s really good.

konekoyoukai: Do you have someone on the spectrum running the blog with you?

I am just going to say this: if not, then as someone on the spectrum myself, you guys have legitimately offended me.
~MF derse:
do i make pages to just entertain myself?
and i dont have a diagnosis, but i got an array of “signs”, like sensory issues, social issues, INCREDIBLE problems vocalizing/communicating, and the list goes on. in case that was what u were getting at.
all of the (good) pieces on autism were done by mCAT, the person who wanted this blog created specifically because of the awful ableism in the fandom. theyre labeled with their name.
please tell me were not regressing to the days where i cussed ppls asses out for not READING THE SHIT I BUSTED MY ASS ON. this was answered on two of the pages i made. it takes scrolling and clicking.

Anyone out there got any recommendations for fanworks that improve upon homestuck’s various problems? Any that are inclusive? Any that could apply to this ask?

corey-45: While we're on the subject of "comics that do the job better than Homestuck does now", surely there are some fan works (fanfics, fan comics/MSPFanventures, whatever) that seek to improve on Hussie's original work and maybe even correct some of the mistakes he's made?

~MF derse:

Well, two things come to mind:

  1. Nukestuck
  2. When Breezy was still super into HS, they made some fanfiction that may be up your alley. I’ll have to find them…

There was a post we reblogged with subsets of the community/blogs/projects that we recommended. ill dig it out for you.

Ill also open a question for this.

Hospital

#MF derse #other


Ok so;

Remember when i had to go to the ER a few months back

That was due to a disastrous medicine mishap. Ive since been out of school, as some of you know (or have caught on) on a mandatory health leave. I cant actually go back to school until i do some things, the main thing being that i have to attend another school elsewhere for a semester. My scholarship wont help me pay for this (apparently necessary) expenditure and me and my family are dirt poor.

Considering how school is p important for me (and how Ive been trying for the past year to get employed or get accommodations for my disabilities), Ive decided to make a post about it (more details follow). If you can help, even by spreading it around, Id appreciate it!!

Back to your regularly scheduled…this.

How to like problematic things

#clippings #oppression #media #privilege #ethics


starvedforjustice:

  • know they’re problematic
  • know why they’re problematic
  • don’t dismiss people’s feelings/dissatisfaction with them
  • don’t silence people when they’re talking about the problems in your media, because your enjoyment is not more important than that discussion. 

Congratulations, you’ve reached the minimum level of decency for being a person who enjoys things that might be problematic. 

I will not be handing you a cookie.

Be the better person. Call out the assholes.

This is not an AU or an RP Homestuck blog.

This is a blog dedicated to taking responsibility for all the horrible shit (with a particular emphasis on racism and ableism) that is rampant within Homestuck fandom. We can't pretend that it's not our responsibility to just let this pass by—the oppressive behavior of Homestuck fans has caused many people, fans and non-fans alike, to feel downright unsafe around anything Homestuck-related. This is OUR SHIT to clean up.

And this isn't just about fan stuff, either. Andrew Hussie is by no means exempt from being called out on his bullshit, since he's spewed fuckton upon fuckton of it, whether through characterization or plots within Homestuck itself or personal statements he's made.

It's time to make this fandom safe.
