forgetpolitics: 1. Dan Savage hates trans people and uses transphobic slurs. “Children have a right to some stability and constancy from the adults in their lives. Perhaps I’m a transphobic bigot, but I honestly think waiting a measly 36 months to cut your dick is a sacrifice any father should be willing to make for his 15-year-old son. Call me old-fashioned. Unfortunately, your ex wasn’t...
[TW for transphobic slurs] Fun with pop stars.
Katy Perry: You can’t be a full tranny every day of the week. That’s an exaggerated part of my personality.
Lady Gaga: I just don't feel that it's all that sexy. It's weird. And uncomfortable. I look at photos of myself, and I look like such a tranny! It's amazing!
Ke$ha: Freaks are what make everything mildly more interesting in life but with trannies, they make me want to be a better woman. I see these men who have way better bodies than I do, more beautiful faces, better complexions, beautiful makeup, and they're more fun than any person I've met in my life. They make me feel like I'm not a very good woman.

dionthesocialist: Motherfuckers are really going to believe that Taylor Swift didn’t know what a swastika was. Really. That’s her actual response. And people will actually believe it. Because she’s a cute white girl and it’s totally believable that she’s innocent enough to not know what’s going on around, because there’s no way someone as pretty, white, and blonde as her would ever do...

girlebony: I believe I’ve seen a comprehensive description of consent once before. Figured I’d contribute as it’s a subject that bears repeating. Consent is: Non-coercive: If you’re cojoling, threatening or otherwise trying to “convince” someone to engage in a sexual act with you, you…
