I was in an angsty mood, so I draw and angsty Ragnarok sketch yey <3 dying loki and sad thor <3 Don’t know how it was in comics and don’t care x)))
That’s not good faith though, it’s blatant misinterpretation of slut-shaming and an attitude that contributes to misogyny and homophobia.
please do explain
because what I read was a question by someone who didn’t understand what it was like to base a relationship entirely off of sex because they’re, y’know, asexual
The original post clearly implies that all “sexuals” are basing their relationships solely on sex, and that they’re all “missing out on the little awesome things” in a relationship such as “the pure enjoyment of cuddling with their partner” and “making out.”
Focusing exclusively on the sexual aspect of a relationship to the exclusion of everything else (respect, friendship, support, non-sexual physical comfort, etc) is pretty classic sl*t-shaming. As a member of two minority groups affected by this (as a woman, and as a lesbian) it pisses me off.
uh how does this lead to homophobia again?
and yeah OP is being ridiculous, you’re right. like I said, though, I’m reading it as a badly-worded question.
Because being oversexed (& having unhealthy relationships founded only on sex) is a common stereotype about lgb people.
okay but that still has no relation. just because queer people are oft stereotyped as being oversexed does not mean that this person was even implying that, nor does it mean that asexuals not understanding relationships based on sex cause homophobia.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it really looks like you’re just digging for reasons as to why what they said is bad at this point.
I don’t think there’s really any point in taking this further because I honestly don’t know what else to say. Implying that people who are in sexual relationships don’t understand intimacy and are incapable of truly connecting with others is frankly dehumanizing.
These things impact women and lgbtq people more because nobody gives a fuck about the quantity or kind of sex men, straight, and cis people have.
If you’re interested in excusing homophobia & misogyny, go do it somewhere else because I’m obviously not getting through to you, and frankly I shouldn’t have had to explain this basic fucking shit in the first place.
facts are for winners, y’allstraight cis male sex is invisible. That’s why sexual supremacy isn’t a fucking thing There is a reason dumbledore was cited as a “pity he’s not ace” character.
The best part was when I tried to explain this picture to my own mother. I think she kinda got it? Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day tumblr!
ok someone please knock Loki up for realz. cuz Mommy Loki is the cutest
I kinda love that fandom (and Thor) have embraced this.
No matter how remote you may think you are from the events that changed the world during the brutal summer of 2014, you have someone on the Wall. Maybe they’re a cousin, maybe they’re an old family friend, or maybe they’re just somebody you saw on TV once, but they’re…
FUCK YOU TUMBLR. I will reblog this every god damn twelve hours. You will NOT erase this woman’s story just because HONY is a bigot who is full of shit. Tumblr staff is full of shit. They are ALL full of shit. And fuck every single one of you shitty people for thinking that you’re going to win. You will NOT.

“This one is very serious, guys:
I came upon these two on the sidewalk. They were having a conversation. “Excuse me,” I said, addressing the girl: “I’m sorry to interrupt, but is there anyway I can take your photo?”
“Why would you want my photo?” she asked.
“Because you look beautiful,” I said. And she did. She was Sudanese. There is a very distinct beauty among people from the Sudan, and she was filled up with it. Suddenly the man cut in:
“I was just telling her she was beautiful,” he said.
Naively, I assumed I had just walked up on one stranger giving a compliment to another. I wanted to capture the moment. “Let me take your photograph together,” I said. The man seemed reluctant, he started smiling nervously and inching away. But the girl called him back.
“Come take a picture with me,” she said. Encouraged by her attention, he returned. She put her arm around him, and I took the photo.
As I examined the photos on my camera, the man started whispering to the girl. She answered him in a loud voice: “I told you! I’m not that kind of girl.” She seemed agitated now. Finally sensing that I had misread the situation, I stepped between them. The man began hurrying down the sidewalk.
When the man left, the girl’s demeanor changed completely. She seemed shaken. Her eyes were tearing up. “He just offered me five hundred dollars to go out with him,” she said. “And then when I said ‘no,’ he offered me one thousand. Why does this always happen to me?”
“It happens a lot?” I asked.
“All the time,” she said. “I’m sorry I’m getting emotional. I just can’t go out of my house without this kind of thing happening. I have a son. I’m a mother. I would never degrade myself like that. I just don’t understand why this keeps happening.”
“Do you mind if I tell this story?” I asked.
“Please,” she said. “Tell it.”
Let’s hope this man, and all men, realize the emotional damage they are inflicting on the women they try to buy. In the meantime, feel free to SHARE.*
Dear Tumblr, fuck you for trying to erase this.
I’m saving this post because as many times as Tumblr tries to erase this woman’s story and act like anything about this was okay, that’s as many times as I’m reposting it. They can either cut me off or stop being assnuggets about this. whichEVER.
i will always reblog this. because if this woman were white, the mass-erasure of this image and story would not be happening. and that just speaks volumes to me. the bigotry that contributes to this woman’s constant harassment is the same bigotry that led to the erasure of this story in order to ‘protect’ this man. they are COMPLETELY connected. this is a vicious cycle that perpetuates anti-blackness and the degradation and silencing of black women and women of color as a whole.
oh look trubr0wn just deployed more truth bombs.
i am the truth bomb terrorist.
Hey this disappeared off my tumblr how strange
anyway, here it is again, supporting this lovely lady who has to put up with this crap just because she exists and goes outside, and to call shame on a society that would actually force her to put her arm around the creep who just upped his price after she told him that she wouldn’t whore for him
Here it is, calling attention to the FACT that the aggressor, the perpetrator of this outrage was the one protected, and the victim is just supposed to disappear
To that I say no
Open season on Black women is OVER.
I’m going to back up my Tumblr.
But I just want to see if Tumblr will ignore the e-mail I just wrote to them getting unwanted messages by users I’ve told to leave me alone and will send me another e-mail about “violating copyright,” if not try to delete my blog for reblogging this picture and story that needs to be seen and heard.
I’m not claiming ownership of anything, BTW. Picture, story behind the picture, and the erasure of the picture copyrighted2012 by humansofnewyork.tumblr.com . And reblogging this picture has an educational reason behind it — to show how black women are dehumanized, and then silenced if they ever speak out.
Tumblr deleted this post from everyone’s blog. Here it is again. And people have saved copies to their computers, including me. Story’s not going away. The internet is forever.
