Anonymous asked: Is it okay for me as someone who now identifies as male to still allow people to call me by female pronouns or by my old name? I've been exploring my identity and for a long time I rejected the idea that I could be trans because I felt like people would just give me grief over it but now I'm becoming more comfortable with the possibility but I kinda don't want to trouble those who've known me for years with a new set of pronouns and a new name.
Just as an aside, rather than calling them male/female pronouns, call them ‘he/him or she/her’ pronouns (if that’s what you’re referring to), as many non-binary people use those pronouns and it’s erasive to imply that these pronouns have a specific gender!
But to answer your question, yes. It’s okay to use whatever pronouns you like in order to be comfortable. Pronouns and names don’t have to be gendered, so you can do whatever you want with them! Whatever makes your life easiest. However, if you would be more comfortable using new pronouns, I would hope that your friends and family would respect that and try to get used to it!

Not that I’m aware of, though there is a blog dedicated to being critical of RWBY called rwbycritical.
Anonymous asked: I've been trying very hard to keep myself from committing cultural appropriation, but I'm honestly curious now about something. Is having a dream catcher in your room cultural appropriation? Also, what about sugar skulls? I have a pair of gauges with sugar skull designs that I would like to wear- Because I like them- but I also don't wanna be a dick.
Okay, let me be clearer on that last bit. I understand that sugar skulls are a symbol for Dia de Los Muertos, and I respect that. I’m not looking to wear them because they’re ‘fashionable’ or anything like that even though yes, I like how they’re designed. However, if anyone out there that has the right to speak up about this issue of morals I’m having has a problem with me wearing the gauges, then I will not.
I’ll pass this one onto my followers, as I am white.
appreciate brown eyes more bc the people with brown eyes are grown up forcing to believe fuckin blue and green and grey are beautiful and either detest or get incredibly happy when someone compliments their eye color stop letting this happen
there are people with brown eyes reblogging this and theyre talking about still being sad with their eye color and this is exactly why we need hype about brown eyes
Anonymous asked: There's a post going around tumblr talking about how people shouldn't abandon toxic relationships, saying it's selfish to leave. I'd just want to say, that if anyone is in a toxic relationship, leaving isn't selfish. Wanting to be treated with respect and wanting to take someone out of your life whom does damage to it and to you is not selfish at all. People confuse self respect and selfishness these days, and respecting yourself enough so that you don't want that in your life isn't wrong.
Why would anyone want to force someone to stay in a toxic relationship, that would be abusive. Thank you for the message.
Anonymous asked: Hey at around 3:33 in the new Diablo 3 let's play Ryan makes a joke about starving African children being strong. Idk if that constitutes as something people should be aware of, but it made me feel really uncomfortable so I thought I'd let you know.
Thank you for the warning.
Anonymous asked: I recently had the revelation that my life has no meaning. It was a bit numbing. I've tried really hard to have some sort of purpose, but I just don't. Honestly I just don't know what to do anymore. I don't think Im suicidal exactly, but I feel stuck
I know that feeling all to well, and it can actually be a symptom of depression (you don’t have to be suicidal to be depressed). My honest advice to you would be to maybe see your doctor (or more ideally, a therapist) if you are able to do so. At the very least, you’ll learn a bit more about yourself. You should spend some time thinking about your mental health, though. Because I know so many people who just drift on feeling like that hopeless, stuck feeling is the norm and it often isn’t. I’m not saying it’s not normal to feel that way, I’m just saying that people often make the mistake of thinking that that’s just the way it is and nothing can be done about it.
