boundaries & stuff 

• favourites, boosts & replies are all cool!! (unless specifically stated otherwise)
• feel free to follow request :)
• i'm more likely to accept your request if you have your age & pronouns in your bio (though i understand there are some reasons not to)
• i probably won't accept requests from cishet dudes, even if you seem alright
• i use the word queer without a CW
• friendliness & compliments are welcomed but please don't flirt or be sexual

why tf listen to elon musk talk about anything, but especially about being autistic as per today's non-news news, when you can read any or all of this instead

idk,, someone tell me if i've worded these badly, it's just something that's been on my mind

it's okay to have nuanced feelings about a pop culture thing and still keep it in your life

Show thread

the fan of "X" may have done their own critical analysis of their thing, like you've done analysis about "Y"

Show thread

"X" pop culture thing isn't more problematic/capitalist/evil than "Y" pop culture thing *just because* "X" isn't interesting/important to you but "Y" is

dated/transphobic terms 

sometimes i remember that some cis people still don't see the difference between "transgender", "transsexual" and "transvestite" as terms and uh.. just no

Putting "Asian and Pacific Islander" in your Youtube video/stream heading will get it shadowbanned (no notifications to subbed) if you aren't an approved 'corporate channel' or celebrity saying, 'the right things' about AAPI during this AAPI history month. They don't want us Asians and Pacific Islanders being heard, apparently.

@monace got me excited and thinking about ace non-fiction books. I have dreams of building a little library of all non-fiction books related to asexuality, aromanticism, amatonormativity, compulsory sexuality and so on.

Books I already have:
- Asexual Erotics: Intimate Readings of Compulsory Sexuality
- The Invisible Orientation: an Introduction to Asexuality
- The Importance of Being Monogamous: Marriage and Nation Building in Western Canada to 1915

Books on the list:
- Minimizing Marriage
- Understanding Asexuality
- Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex
- Asexualities: Feminist and Queer Perspectives
- Asexuality and Sex Normativity
- Undoing Monogamy: The Politics of Science and the Possibilities of Biology

This is actually a sadly short list. Its possible to collect them all on one shelf.

Any other book suggestions?

#asexual #aromantic (although no books specifically focus on aro stuff, some monogamy critique fits)

how did i only just find out about jordan from the axis of awesome being trans- that's epic!!
