also I hope initial anon takes some time to think about how responding to someone’s reblog of a post which they didn’t share their feelings on with three links to other posts where people are having lengthy discussions about their opinions is rude and insulting
first of all, I didn’t ask. Second of all, YOU didn’t ask ME for MY opinion. Third of all, I have every right to feel however I feel (and you didn’t ask how that was) about posts that I take to invalidate my identity. And sometimes, how I feel isn’t your business
like maybe even just ask me how I feel next time. Before you throw links at me assuming that my feelings are “wrong”.
turned anon off for a bit because I don’t want people harassing me for my opinion like they always do after this sort of thing
that’s like the last thing I need right now
these folks all make valid points but I feel the same way about that initial post that I feel when people make posts like “why draw thin people when you can draw fat people” or “why draw straight relationships when you could be drawing queer relationships”, both which are harmful to folks with eating disorders, bisexuals, pansexuals, and polysexuals, among others.
I don’t take it as “stop exploring your queer identity”. I, as a queer person, take it as the person who made a “why be straight when you could be queer” post honestly believes that being queer is superior to being straight monosexual and that you can choose not only the label you use to define your identity, but your own feelings. dothewordything has a valid point here that how we define our identities is a choice, but in my opinion, our feelings are not our choices, they are our brains and bodies reacting on a subconscious level.
That’s my opinion and that’s why I reblogged that post. You’re welcome to be upset about it but I won’t ignore things that make ME upset.
"why be straight and cis when u can be queer and tr-"
hi lets not treat lgbtq+ identities like fashion trends
memes are people too
Magic, Living Doll, The Dummy, and Dead of Night are all very good, and all on my list there.
I love watching Magic every year. The thing about these four is that they’re about grown adults dealing with the dummy/doll in question. Magic is especially good, being longer, because while it’s definitely a question of “is it the dummy?” the answer isn’t quite that simple.
The Dead of Night segment about the ventriloquist (likewise, the Twilight Zone The Dummy episode) is less “is it the dummy?” and more “it’s the dummy, please god let someone else see that it’s the dummy” from the get-go. There’s much more a feeling of dread there.
It’s (almost) October which means it’s time to watch scary things!!!
I thought I’d help out and compile a list of links to my favorite scary movies/TV episodes/etc. about my favorite scary thing: spooky dolls and ventriloquist dummies.
