Explanation of Post Flood

Okay, so as the eleven of you who follow me (Hello! I’m baffled but pleased) may know, Tumblr has lost it’s actual shit. After it was removed from the Apple App Store because of it’s long standing problem with pornbots and CP blogs, Tumblr is cracking down on adult content. Not just the ‘bots and the CP blogs. All Adult Content.

Even Adult Content that … isn’t actually adult content. Like artistic nudes. Like Mario (yeah, the video game dude) in swim trunks. Like Social Justice conversations revolving around sex, sexual identity, and sex work. LGBTQ+ conversations and posts are now Adult Content.

And starting on the 17th of this month, all adult content is going to be blocked.

So, there’s a mass exodus. Some of us are backing up our posts on other sites (Which is what’s going on with mine!) or jumping ship entirely while moving our content to other platforms.

Feel free to … basically ignore everything while I get my shit sorted out.

the updated gilbert baker flag, with added colors from the philly pride flag and the victory over aids flag as well as a white stripe to represent the nonbinary community, taken from monica helms’ trans flag!

under the cut, each stripes’ meaning!

Both Culturally Important and Pretty Colors.

This made me cackle

a-fragile-sort-of-anarchy:

Someone told my ex-dad (not a sex thing; he just disowned me) that I’m trans and now he’s threatening to come to work and make a scene, and I know I should be upset, but like. What’s he gonna say exactly? And to whom? Because imagining a haggard and likely shitfaced Pennsylvania construction worker barging through the grocery store like, “HEY!!! THAT BROAD-HIPPED 5’3” EFFEMINATE KID WITH THE CONSPICUOUSLY BIZARRE NAME WHO SPEAKS IN A CARTOONISHLY AFFECTED CARICATURE OF MASCULINITY AIN’T GOT NO DICK!!! YOU GONNA BUY SCRATCH OFF TICKETS FROM SOME KINDA DICKLESS ABOMINATION??“ is wild. What’s it going to accomplish? Or is he gonna call my manager? “HELLO, I’D LIKE TO REPORT A FRAUD IN YOUR DELI DEPARTMENT. THERE IS NOT SAUSAGE AS ADVERTISED.” What the fuck.

Odds are he’s more embarrassed of having a trans ex-kid than I am of being outed at work, so what if I go to his job and tell everyone I’m trans first? What then, coward?

That’s such a power move.

This is exactly the struggle I’m having with my own mother right now and honestly? i sort of did that, but at the church i grew up in. my mom was like “oh so what if i tell the whole church youre trans” as if she had forgotten that nearly everyone who goes to my church is actually gay, like elderly retired gay couples, so i was like “haha okay,” and told everyone.

And lemme just say, watching a 5’2″, 87 year old gay man stop my mother mid-sentance to say “Actually, I think he prefers to go by Aiden now.” was the BIGGEST dick energy ive ever seen.
