protip if a nerd dude tries to give you a pop quiz about the fandom on your shirt/bag/cosplay by asking you to answer a banal and obscure trivia question to prove you’re a Real Gamer, turn the question back on him. ask him about the thematic implications that bit of trivia has…

I have no idea what half these words mean. Why is a simple question a problem in the first place? There are gamergurls and gamers that happen to be girls. We want to find out which you are. That’s all.

that’s… exactly the problem… ur assumption that it’s somehow a necessity to harass/accuse girls of being Fake just because they happen to like a thing, while in reality doing that serves literally no purpose outside of preforming a great theatrical shitshow of misogynistic self-obsession. the appropriate questions to ask a girl who displays her like for whatever ”nerdy” fanfic would be the same ones you’d ask anyone else - questions like “oh who’s you’re favorite character/what do you like about it/etc” that engage her interest rather than questioning it on the sole basis of her gender

this isnt hard

"i have no idea what half these words mean" oh lawd

I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.

A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?

It is a big deal because i’m a transman

It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.

Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.

At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.

At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.

TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

Awesome!

wow this is awesome

Magnificent sequence of Kiki’s kind nature to help her elderly customer bake a pie in a traditional method, even costing her health and engaging activities in order to deliver the goods to the birthday party of her customer’s granddaughter. It shows that no matter how hard you work, sometimes it goes under-appreciated. In truth, you and I have been in that situation before. The beauty of Studio Ghibli films is that we can relate to a lot of the hardships these characters go through in a very realistic circumstance.
