if y’all have had the benefit of never coming across r/tumblrinaction they’ve harassed multiple people i know for being gay or trans and basically spend every day laughing at whatever preteen or minority they find especially funny that day
it’s on the level of r/mensrights as a haven of abusive fucklords and one of many reasons why reddit should be burned to the ground, really
out of touch with a lot of cool internet friends and wishing i wasn’t
dapperqueer asked: you've got nice art but both le1f and azealia banks have said some transmisogynistic shit - not sure if they're the best queer idols?
first of all thank you! second, i do know that a bunch of the gay male rappers have said some misogynist things in their lyrics (Cakes and Le1f and Mykki to name a few) and that both Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj have very public feuds and some pretty questionable/objectionable lyrics
the thing is that if i search for queer rappers that are literally clean of all of these things i’d be left with like one person (Big Freedia who is an actual angel sent from heaven) and i’m trying earnestly to present a wide and varied representation of the queer/feminist-friendly rap community, which is small to begin with
these folks are not perfect and while i don’t excuse their behavior, i do think they’re important in terms of being visibly queer/feminist in an industry that has a bad reputation for being homophobic and misogynist (and i especially want to battle the current narrative that alleges someone like Macklemore is the first rapper to discuss queerness, because it fits into white supremacist views that rap is homophobic/sexist/bad because it’s predominantly black)
there’s also gonna be lots of words in the book to accompany each drawing that warn about certain content in each artist’s lyrics in case that’d be a dealbreaker/deterrent for any readers. i truly think each of these people are great at their craft and they deserve recognition for that. i’m also not trying to shut down any dissenters, i realize this is a kinda tricky subject, and so i’m still open to hearing people’s concerns, if you have any links to media/interviews/quotes/etc that show any of these artists doing/saying things abhorrent please share them!
i’m pretty sure the jump to endgame is the only hurdle left to play with your friends in wow anyway and it’s there because killing all levelling content and world quests except for end game shit would be a fucking awful move
idk what else you think is in the way
Seth McFarlane called me and Brett an “edgy couple”.
