Nope. I don’t like the way he writes. I think he’s got a wonderful imagination and I enjoy his world building, but something about the way he writes… when I put a book of his down, I generally don’t pick it up again.

Anonymous asked: I know i should feel bad but i am female and i have no problem that women should be on the same "level" with male but i feel that women arent just asking for equality some women i know say men owe them ... as if they want power instead your take?
I think that there is a society-wide perception imbalance - if a person (such as a teacher) pays an equal amount of attention to men and women, did you know that men perceive it as imbalanced (toward women)? I think we’re seeing this on a wider scale. Men (especially cis men) do not see or understand that they have privilege, as they have never really been confronted with it. Because of this, they don’t see feminism as a way of correcting an imbalance. For example (just a basic example on the axis of sexism, ignoring intersection of racism etc. for the sake of keeping it simple), men (and society in general) perceive that the pie is split 50/50, when in reality it’s split 30/70. Feminism wants the pie to be truly 50/50, but men perceive women taking the 20% to make it equal as ‘unfair’ because they’re not acknowledging that there’s an imbalance to begin with (so they see it as men having 30% of the pie and women having 70% of the pie now). It’s basically this:
Anonymous asked: The thing with "why do gays always talk about sex" is that its real. I don't know many gay vloggers or anything, but I could name probably 4 gay people I know socially who are like this. I'm not calling it a bad thing, but they are gay guys who talk about sex constantly. They will actively hijack a conversation to change it to their experiences with sex. I have noticed a couple of gay comedians gear their comedy largely to the sexual side, too. So, it is a thing, not inherently bad though
So basically like most cishet guys then? Like have you heard cishet men have a conversation. I don’t think this phenomena is singular to gay men lol.
Anonymous asked: Hello; Im not sure if this is the right place to ask but here I go: So Ive been friends with this girl for quite a long time now; and we have a lot in common but as we grew older, we kind of got into diff critical theory fields, she deals with Feminism and women's rights, I focus more on LGBT issues. Recently we've been discussing trans issues, especially transwomen and she said that she wouldnt feel threatened by lesbian trans women if they just wanted to have sex with each other (cont.)
(cont’d) but most of them seem focused on becoming involved with cis lesbians and she feels like this is a proof trans women are actually men who feel entitled to lesbian bodies. Im a cis bi girl, I dont know that much about trans issues, I relate a lot better to LGB issues and Im trying to stay educated on the T part too but this time, except attempting to explain why its shitty to call trans women ‘men’ and frame them as sexual predators, I didnt know how to address the issue. Any thoughts?
It’s straight up transmisogynistic and your friend isn’t a very good feminist if she excludes trans women from her feminism. Sexuality and gender are completely separate (although obviously they relate to each other). I mean, think about what she’s saying here - lesbian trans woman are ‘proof’ that trans women are ‘actually men’. So are straight trans women actually women? What about bi/pan trans women? What about asexual trans women? Are gay trans men actually straight women who just want to infiltrate gay subculture? Where do non-binary people fit into this? Like really, what the fuck.
Calling trans women ‘men’ is an act of transmisogyny and is an act of verbal violence, the result of which can get trans women killed.
Anonymous asked: i dont really know how to word this, but do you think minorities(?) have the right to get kind of annoyed at other people sharing their position for playing into fetishization? eg. asian women who accept "yellow fever", fat women who accept the "bbw" label etc. i dont want to be seen as a fetish and seeing people play along with these sort of things really bug me, but i dont want to come after women who are using this as income (this is common with sex workers, the porn industry, etc)
I think that members of oppressed groups have the right to call out issues (such as internalised racism or transphobia, for example) within that group and/or be annoyed by them, yes. But outsiders shouldn’t really do that so much.
For example, as a white person, I shouldn’t call a black person out on internalised racism. Another black person would be totally okay to do that though.
Anonymous asked: Hi, so I was wondering is not finding penis's attractive trans phobic? Because honestly I find guys,girls, and transsexual guys, girls cute but I just don't find penis's attractive. Sorry if this is offensive in any way
I’d prefer if you asked a trans woman or if a trans woman commented on this. But to flip it around, I don’t really see it as transphobic if someone’s not interested in/attracted to vaginas as long as they acknowledge that not all trans men have vaginas and that equating gender with genitalia is transphobic/cissexist.
