STEER CLEAR OF THESE GUYS!
Get them all fired, broken up withn and evicted. Ideally strangled to death but that’s illegal. Dox away my friends
More people should learn that stupidity has consequences.
Okay, I’m going to make this post ONCE and that’s all.
Many of you have probably seen the above gif floating around the internet. It’s been reposted on Tumblr(one post has over 137K notes and wasn’t credited at all) what seems like a hundred times, it’s showed up on Imgur, Reddit, iFunny and other places around the internet. I’ve seen people fight about “posting it first” and arguing with others who had “reposted it from them”. I’ve seen people confuse it with behind the scenes footage from The Avengers(??) and I’ve seen people credit other cosplayers and cosplay groups for it.
This gif belongs to me. It was created last year around this time for fun and the original post had two other gifs that went along with it. So not only were myself and my fellow cosplaying friend not credited but the whole gifset wasn’t even seen. I want to set the record straight now because I’ve seen hundreds of comments around the internet of people asking where this came from and very few had the correct answer for it.
Original post: Do I look like a reindeer to you?
Loki: the-bucky-barnes (DA Account )
Tony Stark: colonel-bastard
And you can look at my Loki Cosplay Tag for other photos and gif sets(yes there are a lot more!).
PLEASE REBLOG THIS, I want to get the word out there as much as possible. And please, please, please do not steal and repost cosplay material from someone without properly crediting the source! Thank you!
No seriously it really irritates me when people say “Oh, transphobic feminists aren’t real feminists, we’re not going to call them that”
Like, are you fucking kidding me? They were the ones producing the majority of all the fucking feminist scholarship from the 1960s to the 1990s, and you want to tell me that they don’t count because the idea of them being included makes you squeamish about the label feminist?
Tough. Fucking. Shit. Transphobic feminists are feminists. Feminism(s) today are still influenced by their shit and still haven’t emerged from that fucking shadow they cast. And not in a “oh they helped so many women” chirping away, in a “you need to critically examine all of the transphobic shit and transmisogynist shit that’s lingering like a fucking stink cloud over YOUR, that’s right, YOUR feminist practices, or it’s not worth shit.”
No excuses. You can’t jettison them just because you are at least evolved enough to realize their ideologies are shit. You can’t pretend that YOUR feminism bloomed like a lovely lotus blossom from a surrounding mud pond of TERFs and racists and eugenicists and middle class white ladies not giving a shit about anyone who wasn’t a middle class white lady. That’s not how it works.
Own up to your movement’s history so you can take responsibility and make it better than it was before.
Of course, if all that you do is harass trans women online while gleefully jumping in bed with Christian fundamentalist organizations and defending Payday Loan companies as a day job, then I’m very sorry, but the label of “feminist” doesn’t apply to you, even if your activities and beliefs do have a rich history in the movement.
