i just want to steal regina, belle,ruby and hook
they’re mine now
but can we get #whereislavernecox to trend on twitter? because thats the only social media site the mainstream seems to listen to these days.
tweet @TIME with why you admire ms. cox and use the hashtags #TIME100 #whereislavernecox
in #once upon a time related news
i just want regina to be happy jfc i would be totally for giving her a pointless love interest
im that desperate
i mean i understand if youre a fan of his show or whatever or you just like him but honestly what the fuck has benedict cumberbatch done that is influential
i wish i could speak up about oppression at school but i can never talk right in those situations i always mess it up plus it involves outing myself which leaves me r e allly vulnerable (i mean it’ll comes down to them wondering why i care so much about these issues and its because some of them actually effect me personally)
the awful shit people will say about minorities when they think that minority isn’t around…
plus there’s this one girl who is being pretty active about this stuff, but she always turns it into a joke about being “politically correct” and nobody ever takes is seriously so if i speak up about it they’ll just turn it into a joke as well because they don’t understand how serious it is. its not about being politically correct its about not being an asshole
i need to write a report or speech or something on it b/c thats really the only way i’d be able to talk about it, have people listen, and actually get the point across instead of nervously mumbling about bad things.
im gonna go watch once upon a time >:(
very angrily >:(
the idea of oppression being such a problem because the people in power silence the oppressed, leaving the general public unaware there is even a problem relates a lot to the whole deal with laverne cox and the time100 problem.
laverne is an activist for trans women and the horrors they have to face, but people who aren’t trans don’t really know about it. thats why its so important she gets in the magazine, or gets articles written about her. so people know about these problems that she’s trying to spread awareness of.
i feel like time magazine left her out, even though she had overwhelming support, because they didn’t want to have to deal with such a sensitive topic but they don’t seem to understand that by doing that they’re only making the problem worse.
the thing i hate most about oppression is that the majority of the time it’s really just a matter of the oppressed trying to be viewed as people and be accepted while the oppressors essentially silence them. it comes down to a point where there are probably thousands of people who would most definitely help fight against the oppression but the people in control have enough power to make sure that they never know about it, and so they can’t help.
and then it’s really a matter of the oppressed fighting back, being silenced or demonized by the oppressors and people not involved thinking they can’t do anything about it, if they even know about it at all. >:/
people who talk or think about autism like it’s a disease i would like to be as far away from as possible because ew
at the very worst it is a disorder. the only actual bad effect of autism is that society and allistic (non-autistic) people stigmatize and bully autistic people for quite literally thinking differently and the fact that society refuses to adapt to their needs and expects them to “suck it up and act normal like everybody else”
i read this cool article on stimming that compared it to scratching an itch, except everybody is telling you that it’s wrong to do that
like holy shit parents literally treat their kids like fucking animals because they stim and the only harmful side effect is “it’s embarrassing for the parent”
its just repetitive actions to deal with stress or sensory overload and people act like its some kind of horrific defect with their child i just >:(
The sassiest fungus around.

Go to your nearest target. Buy a two pack of pushup bras (24$ for 2), and target’s bra inserts (12$). Then go to your nearest Walmart and buy the Vasserette Control Shapewear Panties (2.50 each), they do wonders for helping your tuck. There you go! You just saved yourself a lot of money, you can afford to buy enough to wear every day, and best of all you look fabulous. -@twidx
recs for trans women are so rare on tumblr!! spread this, people.

Willaby is not a wallaby, or a kangaroo, or a hare, but something rather in the middle of all three. Tina is most assuredly a hedgehog, although she’ll tell anyone who asks that she’s a porcupine, and Tarquin is perhaps the world’s prettiest pig, although he does rather wish people didn’t keep assuming he was a she as a consequence.
There are no excuses for TIME not including Laverne Cox other than blatant bigotry
#is there a way to call them out on this bull shit
