I’m not really surprised that because of the fact my body is small and thin which looks “cute” to people and that I’m really femme makes people take me less seriously and undermine my skills. Yay for sexism/misogyny.
If you are a feminist but do not support your trans sisters, your non binary siblings, or your brothers who are also harmed by the demonization of “feminine” things; you are doing it so fucking wrong.
Wario, what's your opinion about Anita Sarkeesian stealing artwork? cowkitty[.]net/post/78808973663/you-stole-my-artwork-an-open-letter-to-anita
Wario thinks the most important thing in this situation is that Anita reaches out to resolve the situation with the artist privately; which according to the artist, she has contacted her and it working on a resolution. The artist has also stated that she would not like this to turn into a witchhunt, and that she wants discussion of the topic to remain civil. But those updates are being left out by many in favor of a narrative where Anita is a master thief, silently sneaking into museums to steal artwork from purehearted artists for her evil feminist videos.
Wario likes to imagine Anita is used to googling assets and using images with the assumption they are official art and/or liable for Fair Use; not a good assumption to make when you’re making something of a high quality with a sizable budget like Tropes vs Women, but everyone makes mistakes. Hopefully Anita will take greater care in the future to make sure content is fair use.
It’s always a little disappointing to see someone with a controversial message like Anita make a mistake like this, since it will inevitably get blown several orders of magnitude out of proportion and be used to justify the hate against her. If this same situation involved a male content creator with controversial videos about gaming, it would not even register for most people as a blip on their radar.

How to Cope with Transgender Stress →
Being transgender is hard. It is no surprise that transgender individuals experience a kind of stress that cisgender (those who identify with the gender they were assigned at birth) individuals do not. People who identify as transgender can and often do experience stigma, discrimination, violence, and internalized homophobia/transphobia. People who are transgender also are at higher risks for “loss pileups.”
if you still think tumblr oppresses cis people just remember that this website got the petition to have robert pattinson on supernatural finished within a month. meanwhile the one to have nonbinary genders recognised isn’t even a quarter of the way there
and if tumblr puts actors on a tv show above basic rights for a large number of trans people, i highly doubt they respect our community enough to put us on top.
About the Asterisk →
There always seems to be an abundance of people in need of links as to why the asterisk after trans is transmisogynistic or just flat out unnecessary so I browsed Google for a while and found some good explanations about why we should stop using the…
