The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

Q
In response to your post about correcting pronouns/names: Well what if the exasperation coupled with the "sorry" is self-directed? When I realize that I used the wrong name/pronoun for someone, I get really upset with myself bc I realize how triggering/uncomfortable that could make the person. I'm certainly not annoyed by using the pronouns/names that make them comfortable.

How do you think it makes that person feel knowing that something of theirs (their name or pronouns) is (albeit indirectly) causing someone else to get mad at themselves? We don’t want your exasperation to be self-directed either. It’s nice to have someone understand how it can be triggering, but please also understand that for some of us, it happens often enough that we’d rather not have each one be a big deal.

Also, try to remember: it isn’t about you. Even if you’re getting mad at yourself, you’re going to make that person feel like they have to comfort you in some way, even if that’s just by saying “it’s okay.” Don’t put us in that position where we have to make YOU feel better, it just makes everything worse. When you make a mistake, if you say sorry do it in a calm way. But honestly I prefer if people just correct themselves. So for example, for me, you can do: “she - sorry, they - blah blah” or “she - I mean, they - blah blah” with my preferred method being the second one.

***ATTENTION*** This is the latest anti-Semitic/ racist salute. It was first claimed to be anti Zionist but has escalated to anti-Jewry and anti-semitism all around. If you see anyone doing this salute called the/a “Quenelle” swiftly punch them in the face, scold them, whatever you feel like, just recognize that this is a symbol of hatred!

Please be careful guys (esp. Jewish, queer, or disabled people, or people of color.) I’ve seen Neo-Nazis do this, and they can be really dangerous groups of people to be around.

Q
what do you think about "the fappening" celebrity photo leaks? are you as triggered as i am?

"The fappening"?! Ugh that’s disgusting. I hate men. I haven’t heard that, or much about it at all tbh. I’ve been steering pretty clear of it I guess - in the fact that I haven’t stumbled across anything and haven’t gone looking - but yeah it’s a pretty triggering thing :/ I’m sorry anon, hope you’re ok *hearts*

that awkward moment after you make a joke and laugh about your illness only to realize that everyone else around you is quiet and looks uncomfortable.

Haha I relate to this on every level

Masculinity is and has always been just as performative as femininity. The only reason why it is seen as natural and neutral is because of patriarchy.


When people say my name wrong or use the wrong pronouns for me, and then go, “SORRRRY! ugh! SORRY!” I would rather them not correct themselves at all. I’d rather they use the wrong name and wrong pronouns rather than have my name/pronouns associated with that kind of exasperation/annoyance. My name/pronouns are happy things, if you aren’t going to use them naturally and positively, don’t use them at all.

I took the idea of putting rubber bands in a figure eight to keep cream/milk thermos's closed from Blue Chip Cookies at UBC and used it at my work and my boss, coworkers and customers couldn't stop talking about it for months
