Laverne Cox and Lupita N’yongo literally have inspired so many trans women and black women and have done so much to encourage them and meanwhile they are less influential than an ugly oatmeal reptilian alien and a manchild who wrote a scene where two pretentious terminally ill teenagers make out at the Anne Frank Memorial

I just realized that the abbreviation for datemate would be DM. As in Dungeon Master, the person who runs tabletop fantasy RPGs. This seems oddly fitting for some reason.
‘political correctness kills creativity' if you can't create something without furthering the oppression of minorities, you aren’t a very creative person.

This. Being a good ally is not like getting a certificate and then it doesn’t matter what you do after that, you always have a certificate. It is something you need to work at every single day of your life, to be aware of everything you do and say, how it impacts people, and to always always listen. A lot of allies believe that once they become an ally that it means they’re ‘good’ and every thought they have from then on is a progressive one, and therefore they no longer have to consciously vet what they write or create, it’s just automatically going to be good because they’re good right? And then they react to criticism by flashing their credentials, as if that changes what they’ve done.
