Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.

Reblog to inform! And if there’s any I missed or anything that should be clarified, please message me! Always looking to expand the proper vocab. : )
NO NO NO!
Stop lumping intersex people in with trans people! And for the love of G-d, STOP reducing us to these, poor, sad people whose only lot in life is to be mutilated and then otherwise only exist when someone wants to shittily justify the gender binary!
Yes, this. Thank you mod c. Also I wanted to point out that not every intersex person has “ambiguous” i.e. non-binary genitalia. And not all of us have dyadist surgery. The correct definition is as follows…
Intersex: Individuals who are born with sexual characteristics outside of the sex binary.
Sex Binary: The false, dyadist social construct that there are only two sexes, erasing intersex people. Sex is ACTUALLY a spectrum, much like sexuality/sexual orientation and gender.
Dyadism: Discrimination of intersex people.
Dyadic: Not intersex. (Much like cis is to trans.)
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever
