Anonymous asked: Also, what privileges do i, as a cis individual have?
-no one questions your gender
-no one invalidates your gender
-always a restroom for you (except in the cases that theyre are no bathrooms at all, but if there is a male’s there will be a females, if theres a females theyre gonna be a males)
-no chance of verbal or physical attack based on the bathroom you use
-not referred to as it
-access to gender exclusive things
-date freely without worrying “will my gender both them”
-the world caters to you
-less work discrimination laws
-not spending years convincing people you are infact a girl/boy
-you are a male/female. not a ‘male in a dress’ or ‘just a tomboy’
i could go on tbh
ok ok ok i tried to pass this but i couldnt..the world caters to us? are you dense ? like really the world doesnt cater to anyone, ever. and you know what if said person loves you they arent going to care about gender
Yeah it does. Everything in this world is designed exclusively for cis people. Your needs are the ones that are considered when products or programs are designed.
There is basically nothing for trans people. We don’t get to see ourselves in media. everything is always about heterosexual cis people and their lives and needs and thoughts and desires.
This is true for every form of privilege. The world is designed for the most privileged. Marginalized people are lucky to even be an afterthought. And even when there is major legislation mandating the needs of a marginalized group be considered it barely changes anything.
And if you’re privileged why would you notice anything wrong with how well the world caters to you. You take out for granted when it caters to you but notice when it doesn’t.
If I consider you a close friend chances are I’m gonna be at least a little gay with you
I am still thinking about this
Actually, the fruit of a tree is technically a reproductive organ, since it holds the tree’s seeds and all.
So, it wouldnt be cannabalism, you’d kinda be feeding them their own semen.
I’VE BEEN DRINKING APPLE CUM??
okay now i’ll reblog it
sorry I just wanted to point out that since fruit hold the seeds/ovules they’re technically ovaries and so you’re not drinking apple cum you’re drinking ovary blood
apple semen would be pollen from apple trees and it would just be powdery and awful
You’re really passionate about apples
Actually since fruit is fertilized eggs, you’re drinking liquefied apple fetus.
liquefied apple fetus.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WORSE, APPLE PERIOD BLOOD, APPLE SEMEN OR LIQUEFIED APPLE FETUSES.
Can we just talk about this post for a moment…
HOW DOES THIS KEEP GETTING WORSEwell this escalated quickly from worse to horrifying
This is the worst/best post in tumblr I swear
Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
Reblogging for the last comment.
second to last comment was dope, and very true.
but for real, is the reason behind skin color really not common knowledge? I mean….
there seems to be some assumption going on that darker skin is the adaptation.
in fact, darker skin is the ‘original flavor’. but evolution likes to get rid of traits that aren’t needed, especially if they cost energy, and maintaining a melanin shield is expensive. we also need sunlight to synthesize vitamin D, and melanin blocks that. so in latitudes that get less sunlight, folks evolved to produce less melanin.
vitamin D deficiency is actually a problem for dark-skinned people living in areas with long, dark winters, btw. take your vitamins!
light-colored eyes are also an adaptation to less sunlight. if real life was like science fiction, blue-eyed people could see in the dark. but reality’s not that cool.
I have trouble seeing in bright light. Idk if that’s because of the blue eyes or because I prefer being inside because I’m super pale and burning sucks.
Brown-eyed followers, do your eyes adjust to bright sunlight, or are you always squinting?
Pretty well, I’d have to say, unless I’m coming out of a relatively dim area (like an office/warehouse) to like, a clear bright sky. Even if I have to squint, I only have to do it enough so I can see through my eyelashes and the adjustment is fairly quick.
i have green/gray eyes and i have a real problem with bright light, especially glare off water/snow. this is all anecdotal, but it occurs to me that if pigmented eyes are a good defense against snow glare, that might explain why, when you reach the snowline, the population’s eye color darkens again.
