“…we know nothing about Sappho. Or worse: everything we know is wrong. Even the most basic “facts” are simply not so, or in need of a stringent critical reexamination. A single example. We are told over and over again that Sappho “was married to Kerkylas of Andros, who is never mentioned in any of the extant fragments of her poetry” (Snyder 1989:3). Not surprising, since it’s a joke name: he’s Dick Allcock from the Isle of MAN. It’s been over 139 years since William Mure pointed this out… yet one finds this piece of information repeated without question from book to book, usually omitting the dubious source, usually omitting any reference at all.”

Holt Parker, ‘Sappho Schoolmistress’, Transactions of the American Philological Association 123 (1993)

i am genuinely delighted by the number of people reblogging this and tagging it ‘dick allcock from the isle of man’.

Oh wait now I get what triggers are

Yeah, see, THIS is a trigger. Something that prompts a horrible flashback that makes someone go into a literal panic attack. It is NOT something that makes you slightly uncomfortable, so can we all just stop tossing that word around like it’s nothing.

thank you Wreck It Ralph

Reblogging for valuable commentary

Also, can we talk about how Felix dealt with it? He NEVER used that word again (only once in front of Ralph, never by her), there was never any talk about how she could get over it, and in their wedding they all made plans to help her with her paranoia by recognising her fears and showing she was safe by pointing guns at the window and having extra security.

A++++++ on dealing with mental issues magnificently, Wreck-It Ralph!

Will never not reblog this when I see it

fandomsandfeminism:

If you think “monosexism” is a problematic term because it groups people of various identities into one category, please also stop using the following terms

bisexual-books:

bidyke:

  • Sexism - and the word “men” - groups together white men with men of color, cis men with trans men, abled men with disabled men, etc. It means that a a queer trans man of color can oppress a white cishet woman.
  • Heterosexism - and the word “heterosexual” - groups together cis men, cis women and trans/nonbinary people, white people and poc, abled and disabled people, etc. It means that heterosexual disabled working class women of color can oppress abled white middle class gay cis men.
  • Cissexism - and the word “cisgender” - groups together cis women with cis men, white people and poc, abled and disabled people, etc. It means a cisgender lesbian woman of color can oppress a white trans man. (You know? I bet this is an argument that radscums actually use.)
  • Ableism - Okay you get the point
  • Classism - Or so I hope
  • Ageism - Because this is ridiculous
  • Etc.

Why is this ridiculous?

  • Because this is not how intersectionality works
  • Each term represents one axis of oppression
  • No one term can take all axes into account
  • Nor should it, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to talk about the oppression of any specific group
  • No one axis of oppression trumps all others
  • To say that monosexism inherently and necessarily trumps all other axes is to derail the discussion
  • Is a black lesbian trans woman privileged over a white bisexual cis man? Of course not.
  • But that is not the question
  • The question is: is a black lesbian trans woman privileged over a black bisexual trans woman?
  • Take a look at some of our statistics, and then think about that.
  • Then take a look at how I, the person who wrote the monosexual privilege checklist, wrote, time after time, about how the list is meant to draw attention to straight people and away from gay and lesbian people.
  • Then take a look at my book, which includes the list, and is about intersectional bisexual politics, with chapters about how monosexism works at intersections between bisexuality and women (including trans women), men (including trans men), trans and nonbinary people, and people of color.
  • And was written by a bisexual genderqueer disabled person/woman of color.
  • FFS
  • Then after you acknowledge all that, maybe we can start having a discussion.

[Note: I trust tumblr will ignore this post much like any other that I make about monosexism and monosexual privilege because I guess I’m making too much sense? But - just in case it gets around, know that I may not be following up, as per low spoons. Hate to my ask box will be deleted.]

Anonymous said: Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.

tstarksbitch:

  • i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
  • i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
  • i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
  • i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
  • i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
  • i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
  • i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics 
  • i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled 

listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t

Ginny Weasley should have confronted Voldemort and possibly destroyed the horcrux. Its her story. Its her body he violated. Her mind he corrupted.

Lucius and Voldemort treated her like a pawn. I wish after Harry killed the snake, Ginny could have been the one- the oh so vengeful one- to take that fang and fucking stick it into the diary. To smile as she heard toms scream reverberate through the dark chamber as he disappeared. Scaring Harry almost.

This horcrux belonged to Ginny as much as the locket belonged to Ron. And the war belonged to Hermione.

I want Ginny to show she has a personal stake in the fight that goes beyond the weasley s stake of good and right. I want her to egg harry on. I want my beautiful wild impulsive Ginny- because that’s my canon Ginny- to grab Harry by the hand and say fuck voldemort, we will destroy him and that’s how they lose their virginity instead of breaking up as harry intended.

I want her to follow Harry, Ron and Hermione in book seven and when confronted, to yell angrily that this is her battle too. She gave her heart and soul to a boy and trusted him over everyone. And how can Voldemort be anything but personal to her?

I want that hard blazing look in her eyes- that look when she kissed harry- in her eyes when she next sees Voldemort- only he’s Tom to her now. And god, I want her to call him Tom casually when they are discussing Voldemort. I want you know who to never slip out of her mouth. I want her teaching harry how tom is like- because he fed her his soul too-

I want Harry to wonder sometimes whether she sees him or Tom. Or whether she saw him in Tom. And who really came first. And this awful unfair comparison to Voldemort never bugging him more than when he’s with Ginny. And Ginny of course teasing him telling him she has a type. Because god, its a relief to finally joke about this nightmare.

I want so much.
