Why do people keep inviting me to makeup parties?

I am allergic to makeup. Stop inviting me to these things.

I couldn’t ask about queer clubs at the Aberdeen applicants day because my mum was there, so if anybody knows about any lgbt+ societies etc at Aberdeen university I’d be glad of some direction? Pretty confident I’m going to meet my conditions so going to Aberdeen is almost a guarantee & I don’t want to not have anywhere to meet other queer ppl?? Anyway if anyone knows about such gatherings I would be glad of a rec or two

Here is the Facebook fan page for the Ab-Fab Society at the University of Aberdeen, which is “the nationally award-winning LGBT*/LGBTQ+ society at the University of Aberdeen.”


There a few others that are married, but they don’t post their ages (because they’re smart like that). 

I only did this silly thing to see if I was over or under the median. 

To be honest if I’m married by October 21, 2019 I will be shocked. I’d also be worried that I’d rushed into it too quickly seeing as how I’ve yet to have a serious relationship yet, let alone my first kiss, and I am not the kind of person that would save the first kiss for the wedding ceremony.

connoririshwright asked: They did it that way so cis people who are assholes couldn't abuse it and put in vampire or potato and mock people for whom this is important. The down side is there is only so many they could pick. I'd recommend sending an email or tweeting saying thank you but could you add pansexual on the next update. Best I can think of! sorry!

If someone wants to put that their gender is a green martian with six penises I don’t care. I will gladly take all the assine gender statuses for the ability to have my own gender represented

Also, pansexual is not a gender, it’s a sexuality. 

I think that this whole gender Facebook missing my gender thing really boils down to is from before I can remember, I’ve doubted that I actually was supposed to exist and sometimes I doubted I was human.

I don’t know when I was told, maybe I always knew because of doctor’s and neurologist’s appointments, but I’ve always known I was an emergency cesarean section. I always knew that I was losing oxygen during labor to my brain and that the brain damage was significant. About the time I began to understand what death was was about the time I realized that oxygen deprivation = had it persisted, I would have died.

So, I began to question if I should have died. If maybe living had been a mistake. I had a lot of social and emotional problems. I felt disconnected from the people around me. I didn’t understand emotions of others. I felt like an alien because I had compulsions that I couldn’t fight. When I went to school, everything only got worse because the children told me what a freak I was, and the teachers didn’t do anything to stop it (this was during the let them fight it out for themselves phase of bullying theory).

So, you know, Facebook giving us only 50 gender options despite having the technology to make it as customizable as a profile name field, and finding out I’m gender identity 51 is like another part of my life that sends me back to the question I’ve been asking myself since I was at most two-years-old, “Was I not meant to exist?”

Which I know sounds overly dramatic, but I mean that’s my knee-jerk subconscious reaction to think like this. I’m once again the outlier. Once again, I’m not common enough to deserve respect. Once again, I don’t exist in the eyes of people who have some kind of power.

I mean I can’t even access the “wish them a happy birthday” option unless I choose a gender that I’m not. So I’m still stuck with female, which is sort of kind of true but a lie, but not quite as big of a lie as say genderfluid, which is like saying “other” but not using the word other. I don’t want to select that because it sounds like something it’s not and it sounds like something I’m not.

I just want to put “gender neutral, female” because frankly, that’s the best way to describe what I am and it’s a term that makes me feel comfortable in my gender identity. I want to hack my breasts off and keep my vagina and answer to all pronouns and wear all types of clothing. That’s what I’ve always wanted and it’s been a struggle to accept that part of my own identity because whenever I say anything like that I’m met with lectures from everybody.

I’m not quite “female” but I’m not a fucking catchall term either. I’m not.

But why can’t my gender be as customizable as my name field? I mean yes it’s more inclusive this way but I’m kind of left holding the bag. It’s like how I had to fight to use boys skates in gym class because the girls shakes didn’t fit the width of my feet unless I went up two skate sizes. It’s like how if I ever said “I have trouble reading this can I have it on white paper? I’ll pay for the copy” I got told no because the yellow or purple or red or whatever paper the teacher had printed the whatever on was supposed to “facilitate learning” and I “was lying” and “trying to create problems.”

Why does this always happen to me? I don’t understand.

I mean all I wanted to put was “gender neutral female” because that’s the best way to describe my gender, but it’s not an option. I’m not 100% gender neutral, but I’m not 100% female either.

Can you just skip it? Or tick a box saying that you’d rather not say?

Oh I’m already marked as female from the old system, but if you choose female you’re not allowed to choose ‘wish them a happy birthday,” so I would have to choose bi-gender or gender-fluid because gender neutral female isn’t an option, which is a more accurate representation of my gender preferences. So, I either have to pick something that I don’t identify as to get to the gender neutral birthday wishes or I continue on as usual, which I’ve decided to do because I don’t want to mislable myself.

But I don’t want to put gender-fluid or bi-gender. That’s not accurate.

D: I can’t select a custom gender on my happy birthday thingy unless I choose a gender description that doesn’t fit me. What is this?

None of these are my gender. Why can’t I have an input box instead of a drop down menu?

Someone shared a photo on Facebook about boycotting Coke because of the multilingual commercial and I just kind of went off in a status message just now, and I’m going to repost this here because I feel the same way about Tumblr. If you are boycotting Coke because of their “America the Beauitfiul ad, unfollow me now. I’m just going to copy/paste because I am so done with all of this that I don’t have it in me to modify the status to fit Tumblr terminology.

If you are boycotting Coke for airing an ad in which “America the Beautiful” was sung in many languages, please unfriend me right now. Do you even understand what you’re saying with this boycott? Do you realize how much history you’re ignoring with this boycott? For one, English is NOT the native language of the United States. The native language of the United States are the languages of the indigenous people who came before the Europeans. For two, the English settlers weren’t even the first non-indigenous people in America. The Norse and the Iberians both beat the English to North America. For three, I don’t know about you, but a lot of my ancestors did not come from English speaking nations. Why would I cling to a misguided notion about America that would harm the events that put me here in the first place? The boycott is horribly racist and horribly ignorant. If you’re taking part in it, I want no part of you on my Facebook.

Oh thank goodness Candy Crush Saga came up with that dream stuff because I got to a point in the main game where it got too hard to progress in less than a month of trying.

So I thought I’d post some of these because a friend was (monkey see, monkey do.

Have some commentary with them.

1. Apparently WWIS would like you all to know that Ben Whishaw will eventually be knighted.
2. I was not created by egg and sperm but battery icon and bad computer doodles.
3. Puppets and mannequins are things I’ve always been D: about. This might be a Doctor Who thing.
4. This was one of the best made me sound stoned statuses WWIS threw at me.
5. I’m going to assume this was made in the spirit of StarGate SG-1.
6. Pretty sure this has never been off by itself as a proper status, but I say this frequently.
7. This is actually very very true. I mean I live in a town of about 15,000 people are we are not 100% white.
8. Ah yes, that Classic Who serial Mark Gatiss was in, “Vengeance at the Diner.”
