Thoughts and Plots turned 3 today!
(This showed up in my email a couple of days ago and I just now noticed it. It’s pretty cute though so I thought I’d share. But HOLY COW I’ve been on tumblr a long time now! I had no idea it had been this long.)

Thoughts and Plots turned 3 today!

(This showed up in my email a couple of days ago and I just now noticed it. It’s pretty cute though so I thought I’d share. But HOLY COW I’ve been on tumblr a long time now! I had no idea it had been this long.)

Rule #1, always post the rules.

Rule #2, answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 11 new ones.
Rule #3, tag 11 people then link them in the post.
Rule #4, tell them you tagged them.
Rule #5, tell the person that tagged you when you’ve answered the questions.

I was tagged by my good buddy redrushman.

1. If you could instantly learn one new language right now, which one would you choose? Mandarin Chinese.
2. Spelunking or skydiving? Spelunking.
3. What color is your favorite fruit? THIS ONE IS HARD. Orange? Orange or red.
4. A genie will grant you 3 wishes. What are they? The ability to master any skill in a week, the ability to perfectly solve world crises with the snap of my fingers, a dozen more genies.
5. If your life were a movie, what genre (fantasy, sci-fi, spy thriller, romance, etc.) would you want it to be? An over-the-top buddy comedy musical, complete with absurd slapstick sequences that would never happen in reality.
6. You discover a time machine. When do you go? This is another hard one, but probably the future? Let’s say… 200 years from now?
7. On average, how long do you keep your fingernails? Pretty short. They have a nasty tendency to snag and tear otherwise.
8. What is your Hogwarts house? Explain your choice in detail. Hufflepuff. There’s just… no other house that would fit me like Hufflepuff would. I don’t think I’m that hardworking or even particularly loyal, but I think Hufflepuff is concerned with being caring and conscientious of one’s impact on the world in ways similar to me. People from the other houses might obviously share this trait, but I think the way they’d go about it is distinctly different than how a ‘puff would. Plus, I’d be next to the kitchens. That’s important to me.
9. What is your favorite random trivia fact? Uuuuuh… the giant squid has eyes approximately the size of a dinner plate? That’s just the first random thing I thought of.
10. What was the last movie you watched? Mrs. Doubtfire.
11. Are you wearing pants right now? NOPE.

My questions:

1. What is your favorite day of the week? Why?
2. What are your thoughts on crusty French baguettes?
3. Do you prefer bolding words or italicizing them?
4. What length of hair suits you best?
5. If you could grow wings and fly, would you?
6. What is your least favorite type of plant?
7. Trains, planes, or automobiles?
8. Do you know what an ungulate is?
9. Photos or videos? Why?
10. What’s at the end of a rainbow?
11. What’s the most interesting story you have about a person whose name starts with “E”? (If you don’t have one, you are allowed to make it up.)

I’m tagging: churchyardsale, queerjourno, mahleriana, phantomcheckers, hungry-feminist, and redrushman you can do this one again if you want because lord knows I don’t have 11 different people to tag unless I want to start including strangers. BUT HEY STRANGERS FEEL FREE TO DO IT TOO I DON’T WANNA EXCLUDE ANYONE

asker

churchyardsale asked: I'm pretty sure you would be a waterbender because you're so good at reacting to situations you're very adaptable and flowy okay that is what i think

Oooooh, thank you! I am glad you think I’m flowy. That’s such a nice adjective! *high five*

What kind of bender would I be?

bonus round: explain why it would fit them best!

The new computer I got for my birthday was so awesome, it couldn’t stand the pressure and promptly experienced a major malfunction.

Why does this feel like an amusing analogy for my life?

this graphic, while adorable and well intentioned, is confusing gender with gender identity.  i think that this distinction is important in order to really understand things like sexism, transgender, transphobia, and even intersex.gender is a set of ideals and expectations that society imposes upon people based on their perceived sex.  got a vagina (or do you look like you have one because of your high cheek bones or breasts or hips etc)?  then it’s pinkness and weakness and daintiness and dresses for you.  got a penis (or do you look like you have one because of your broad shoulders, flatter chest, and taller height)?  then it’s blue and rough and strong and active with short hair and pants for you.  
gender IS very much a stupid pink and blue binary that puts you into one of 2 boxes based on how other people perceive your sex.  that’s why you’ll hear feminists talk about how “gender is a social construct”.  gender is a social class created by people and imposed upon you beginning at birth —  and that’s part of why it’s bullshit.  gender is also bullshit because it exists to maintain a hierarchy that values men/maleness/masculinity over the “inferior” [social category] of women/femaleness/femininity.  enter sexism and sex-based oppression.  in case you were doubting that gender is a social category created by people, keep in mind that some societies have 3 or 4 or 5 genders.  (side note: gender should not be confused with sex, which refers to roughly defined categories of genitalia, hormonal levels, chromosomes, etc.  how we categorize someone’s sex is also a social construct.  for example, when a baby is born with ambiguous genitalia, parents will often arbitrarily choose the sex their baby resembles more.  the intersex child is thusly raised as either a boy or a girl.  and we’re back to gender again — a social construct based on perceived sex.)
i digress.  all of the above is the reason why gender identity is highly varied.  gender itself is not highly varied because it’s a binary social class.  the fact is, people do not fit into those two boxes.  our identities and understanding of ourselves is not 2 dimensional.  there are many personal, real, and valid ways to understand one’s own gender beyond the binary that society enforces.  our understanding of our own gender is shaped by biological and social factors (nature and nurture, for the psych nerds) and results in the self-concept that is gender identity.  despite this fluidity, society wants you to only have the gender identity it assigns to you: man or woman.  this compulsory gender identification system is the result of cissexism - or the belief that you must have a gender identity that matches your perceived sex.  and if you identify otherwise?  enter transphobia - or discriminatory treatment based on one’s gender identity.
transphobia may also be rooted in gender expression.  gender expression is how we choose to present ourselves to the world, in any combination of ways which are deemed feminine/masculine/androgynous by society.  those whose gender expression does not comply with what is deemed appropriate for their perceived sex have historically been subject to discrimination and violent attacks — especially those whose sex is perceived as “male”, but who are women and/or express their gender in a very feminine way.  this is the result of transphobia colliding with misogyny and is sometimes referred to as transmisogyny.
gender roles are moreso rooted in sexism than transphobia.  gender roles refer to the behaviors people are expected to have based on their perceived sex (roughly works out to male roles=dominant and active while female roles=submissive and passive).  
anyway
damn yall if it aint confusing as shit

This is perhaps the only thing I have ever read that TRULY helped me understand all of the distinctions involved between gender, gender identity, the associated problems when a society doesn’t accept the idea of multiple genders, et cetera.

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.
