[Image description: White text on a black and gray background, reads “I think that trigger warnings are ridiculous.” Ridiculous has been crossed out and replaced with, “An important part of keeping the internet accessible.” Small text in the bottom left corner reads, “no1curr-opinions.tumblr.com” End description.]
[Image description: White text on a pinkish-red background, reads, “I think being obese is okay. People say they aren’t unhealthy and they know their health better than me.” Smaller black text at the bottom says, “no1curr-opinions.tumblr.com”. End description.]
[Image description: White text on a blue background, reads “I believe everyone is bisexual.” Everyone is yellow and italicized. Bisexual has been crossed out and replaced with, “Whatever sexuality they say they are.” Small, white text at the bottom says, “no1curr-opinions.tumblr.com” End description.]
[Image description: White text on a black background, reads “Dear 14-year-old girls, You are not bisexual. Stop making a mockery of what the word actually means. You word is ‘bicurious.’ Start using it.” Parts have been crossed out in red and it has been edited to read: “Dear 14-year-old girls, You are whatever you think you are. Stop assuming you know other people’s sexual orientations better than they do. Your word is whatever you want it to be. Start using it, or not, it’s up to you.” In addition, the following text has been added to the left in red: “Funny how people never imply that a straight kid might not have enough sexual experience to know if s/he is truly attracted to just the opposite sex.” At the bottom it reads in yellow italicized text: “NO1CURR about your biphobic & ageist bullshit.” End description.]
I am bisexual and I had had crushes on both boys and girls by the time I was 14. I considered that I might be bi, but didn’t really understand it until college, partly because of the sort of nonsense expressed in this image. Most of my other gay, lesbian and bisexual friends had at least some inkling, even if they weren’t able to piece it together yet, by the time they started high school, because they had had same-sex crushes by then. I don’t understand why people think LGBA kids mature at a slower rate than heterosexual kids.
By the way, the bit on the left is not to imply that straight kids’ labels as such should not be taken seriously. I just find it quite telling that people who claim to be concerned about teens “applying labels too soon” never care when that label is “straight.” And this is despite the fact that there are probably more LGBAs who identify as “straight” at 14 (like me) than straight people identifying as gay/lesbian/bisexual/asexual at that age, since in most high schools it’s not that easy to be a queer teenager.
I don’t see why not. You can do it yourself and submit or leave us a link. Since tumblr no longer allows links in messages, I’ll go enable link submissions.
Silly tumblr. :/
[Image description: White text on a navy blue background reads “Fat people creeps me out.” Both “fat” and the s in “creeps” have been crossed out and replaced with other text in red, so it now reads “Mean people creep me out.” At the end in red, this has also been added: “no1 currs about your sizeism, srsly” End description.]
[Image description: White text on a blue background reads “I like being straight.” Below in red text reads “Congrats! So does our entire society! That is why you are able to get married, to not get fired from jobs, to not get beaten up for your sexual orientation, and other things that are not accessible to gay people. No one cares about your privilege-denying bullshit.” End description.]
The text accompanying this was all about how she wondered why there was no “straight pride” movement. Seriously?
[Image: White text on a blue background reads “In my opinion, if the girls nowadays didn’t dress like such whores and sluts, showing off every pore possible, there would be a whole lot less rapes. Guys have passion too, which they sometimes can’t control. And I’m a girl - and I think slutwalks are absolutely fucking useless, when you’re dressing like a prostitute.” Parts have been crossed out in red and rewritten, so that it now reads “In my opinion, if people valued enthusiastic consent, there would be a whole lot less rapes. Guys have passion too, which they can control. And I’m a girl - and that doesn’t excuse me from victim-blaming.” End description.]
[Image description: White text on a blue background reads “I like being straight.” Written over it in red is “No shit you like being straight. You can marry the person you love every state and country in the world. STFU, no1curr.” End description.]
An anon asks: I just don’t think that I can follow a blog that would celebrate a past that had some pretty objectionable practices. Are you aware that some of your followers may consider themselves a southerner, but not be white? Maybe change the name of this tumblr to Rules of the Southern White Lady. Then its a little less misleading.
The OP replies: Yeah, I’ll be sure to take that into consideration since NO other culture has ever engaged in “objectionable practices.”
I’ve crossed out ‘engaged in objectionable practices’ and said, ‘brought millions of people to a continent against their will and formed an agricultural economy based on slave labour’.
no1curr about your apologism, srsly.
