I’m freaking out I don’t usually reblog this stuff but this is like incredible
One of the unfortunate things I’ve noticed recently is that feminine things are automatically put under more scrutiny than non-feminine things.
Thank fucking you, PinkiePony.
I got so much flack as a kid for enjoying barbie. I still enjoy barbie. it pisses me off when people hate on her so much. Like, come the fuck on. Barbie was doing ‘male jobs’ long before feminists began making their mark. In fact, I’ll go as far to say as Barbie was the original feminist. I know that’s not historically accurate, but come on, think about it. When Barbie started doing things like becoming a doctor, joining the army, racing in NASCAR, it inspired other young girls to do those things! But not just that, she still does things that are by nature ‘feminine’. She still does ballet, and designs clothes. She’s still a princess and a fairy and a mermaid and what the fuck ever! She is whoever she wants to be.
Please… remember that the next time someone tells you they enjoy barbie. I almost had my love for her crushed by ignorant people who simply followed the crowd of hate. I encourage you to make your own opinions on her. Look at both sides. Make your own decision.

If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!
yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead
I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.
No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.
Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.
Did you guys even watch bee movie
you really really must call a bee keeper!
My family’s house had it’s entire attic taken over by bees one year. They slowly started appearing in the house, and then they were everywhere. We called a bee keeper, and he removed what he said was the largest domestic honeycomb/bee nest he’d ever seen. I was so terrified I’d gone to stay with a friend. My folks called me to meet the bee keeper, and he led me on the most magical journey through the house. He explained the bees were harmless if you move calmly through them and don’t swat at or harass them. He was only stung once because he accidentally put his hand down and smooshed one. The bees landed on me, walked a bit, then buzzed away. All honey combs and bees were safely removed and relocated. Call a bee keeper, they are awesome!

Let me talk about shame. We’ve all experienced it to some extent, but for those rare few who haven’t, I define shame as a feeling of complete and utter worthlessness. The sense that there could not possibly be a place for you in the world, that you are utterly alone, unknowable and frankly not worth knowing. Shame can be associated with abuse, neglect or ignorance and often leads to hostility, isolation and unhappiness.
As someone who has experienced this kind of deep, overwhelming shame, I don’t understand why anyone would want to make others feel this way.
I have Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (CAIS). This means that I was born with female external anatomy, internal non-functioning testes and XY chromosomes. I was that weird phenomena that happens when our XX/XY chromosomal system breaks down and creates something that’s a little bit of both and none of either. When I first got my full diagnosis at 17 years old, I was consumed with shame.
My parents told me to keep it secret (I wasn’t even allowed to tell my sister) and my doctors treated me like some prized freak. I had no idea what to think because no one would talk about it with me and I had never heard about it before. So I assumed the worst — that I was an unloveable oddity bound to live alone on the fringes of society forever.
Naturally, it didn’t take long for the shame to sink in. It ate at me, made me untrusting, sad and small. For years, it was all I could feel. I didn’t trust that anyone could love me with the knowledge of my “condition."
I kept asking myself questions like, “Am I supposed to like girls? Boys?” or “Who am I? Is it worth even trying with people because they’ll never understand.” The girl who used to chatter incessantly became stuttering, silent, angry — unable to trust her own thoughts. Shame made me into a cold, selfish person I didn’t recognize.
It’s taken me years to rid myself of shame, and even more years to start to appreciate my intellect, recognize my strengths and begin to speak out for myself and my community. But without the example of people who inspired me to be fearless and open about myself and a group of wonderful friends, I might still be in that black box of shame with room to breathe but no room to grow.
Last week, however, Fox News made me feel that shame again. Some of their commentators made me, and my community, a punchline to their joke.
Instead of celebrating a move Facebook made to give its users a chance to fully express their gender or sexual identity, Fox News correspondents decided to mock it. Unable to realize their own ignorance, they snickered at the thought that anyone could identify as intersex, even asking the question, “What if you want to identify as a pinecone?”
By laughing at our identity, they proved they’d rather spread ignorance than grapple with the complexity of our truths. We are all different, and our differences don’t make us any less human.
Their commentary added to the chorus of those in power who continue to force us to accept a binary that isolates and leaves out people like me. I feel so sorry for those people.
They forget that if we would accept others and be more open, like Facebook is trying to do, maybe we could stop making each other feel so deeply screwed up. Maybe, just maybe, we could even make each other better.
I applaud Facebook for its push to make it easier to share our complex identities through social media.
Difference is not something to spit upon and laugh at; it is something to celebrate because in the end our differences are what we all have in common.
But Morris’ apology did not address the root of the problem. As Inter/Act member Emily Brehob said in response:
This host’s apology doesn’t make up for what was said, but it does demonstrate a rare willingness by a Fox correspondent to learn from his mistakes. Fox’s reporting on intersex issues is far from perfect, but this segment gave us reason to hope for better in the future.
It is our hope that one day we will live to see a future actually free of stigma and shame.
Bigotry against intersex people is NEVER ACCEPTABLE
And neither is treating them like a joke or something to be laughed at
They are human beings and deserve respect the same as anyone else <3
I watched the video of the Fox anchors that was linked in this. When the smarmy white, hetero, cis-male opened his face and said “Well, I just changed mine to intersex”, I broke down. For the first time, in a long time, my being intersex hurt me.
I hate these humans with a burning and fiery passion. I know, I’m “supposed” to win them over with kindness. Fuck them.
