Today’s Gender of the day is: Ayyyyygender!
tumblr you can keep your glorified nostalgia about the wild thornberries and tony hawk’s pro skater and getting to hold the flea-ridden stuffed lion during the d.a.r.e program and what have you because THIS right here. now THIS was the essence of the 90s
YOU’LL CALL NOW
oh man it took me literally 2 seconds of this video to remember exactly how the rest of it went
I hated this commercial. Turns out I still hate it.
OH MY GOD THIS DAMN COMMERCIAL
I CAN’T FUCKING STOP LAUGHING its as awful as i remembered it
i cant quite explain this commercial and how it came back to me like
i couldnt remember the exact words by heart but. everything they said chimed in my head like a song i’d heard a long time ago. it was almost rhythmic, buried deep in my memory. it was probably the most bizarre way ive ever remembered something.
I didn’t even have a TV growing up and yet this commercial somehow became part of my very being…
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
okay but like, strippers started it
why is it only impressive and worthy of respect when we frame it as “not sexual whatsoever”?
perhaps the more relevant question would be: why do we stigmatize stripping and try so hard to distance ourselves from it, to the point of denying pole dancing’s roots in sex work?
Does anyone want to help me move furniture to my 2nd floor apartment? My mom will be driving a van full (or 2) of stuff, and we’d really appreciate any extra muscle. <3
Never say that you “don’t care” about a person’s orientation, gender, disabilities, illnesses, ethnicity, religion, or any other aspect of their identities
Because all of those things are inherently a part of that person and their identity and by “not caring” about those things you are saying that you don’t care about them as a person, and also erasing important aspects of them
"Not caring" is not the same as being accepting, and it is certainly not respectful
But also please don’t care in the wrong ways… assuming that someone’s orientation, gender, disabilities, illnesses, ethnicity, religion, or any other aspect of their identities play a huge role in their life can also be damaging.
The safest thing to do is meet people as just people and let them tell you what matters to them!
