*calmly waits for the day that “go back to tumblr” is no longer a common response to calling people out on their ignorant bullshit and people are actually decent to other people who aren’t exactly like them*
guuurl I’m fine. I got cut off by a woman in her 70s who didnt signal and was forced between her and the curb and I fell, mostly on my shoulder. Its kinda swollen but I was able to finish my shift so I’m fine, just needs a couple days of not riding I think
hi. i’m a girl. do you wanna know what it means to be marginalized (in the [emo] music scene)?
i recently went to a show. a guy from a touring band stood next to me while my friends’ band was setting up to play.
me: hey, good set.
him: oh thanks, what’s your name?
me: Lindsay, what’s your name?
him: (name). so, are you with the band?
me: with? i mean, i’m friends with them…
him: oh, so you’re a groupie?
me: uh, no?
him: then are you dating one of them?
me: what kind of question is that?
him: what do you mean what kind of question is that?
me: first of all, i’m a lesbian, so no, i’m not dating any of them. they are my friends. i like music. in fact, i play in a band with my partner. [he stopped listening after the first sentence]
him: you’re a lesbian? i love lesbians! i have all of your movies!
need i say more? this is not about a genre. this isn’t even necessarily about music. it’s about how because i’m a girl i was made to feel like i did not belong. it’s because i’m a lesbian i was made to feel like a sexual object. while i think it is great to compile lists of bands with girls in them and all, there’s a lot more to this story. chill with the labels. treat me like a person at a fucking show. treat me like a person playing guitar. k thx bye.
This is fucked up.
You know you’re really sexist against bronies.
