trying to figure out someone else’s shower
it’s going… i still have a ton to do before I leave on Tuesday and I have to work two bake shifts in a row! FUN
I wasn’t gonna do any more of these but I couldn’t pass this one up
This was deceptively tricky palette to work with
Tumbr.txt actually held me back from realizing I was trans because I associated the kind of transness I needed with “the bad side of tumblr” when I first started using this website, like I believe there was such thing as “the good SJWs” and “the bad SJWs”. Like, it literally kept me my certain kind of miserable for another six months longer than I would have been otherwise. I was like, nineteen, twenty years old but I actually had to say to myself, “No, this mean-spirited twitter account is wrong, these trans women have good points.”
What I’m saying is, I mean other than “cis dudes are idiots”, is that it’s really surprisingly easy to keep a lot of people willfully ignorant. It’s easy to prey on the insecurity that comes with not really knowing who you are or want to be and say, “you’re not like these freaks, are you?” and keep them in the dark for as long as you want. Oppression’s primary tool is isolating people from potential support systems and filling the role of moral and social compass, and it’s scary how easily a person can pick up that tool and have as much fun as they want with it.
