So it’s come to my attention that a couple of people are upset about a post I made about the series premiere of Fargo last week, because I pointed out that more people seemed to be focused on the scene where Martin Freeman takes off his clothing than the scene immediately preceding it where he murders his wife with a hammer.
My problem was not that people enjoyed that scene or that people enjoy risqué scenes in other violent, problematic shows involving violent, problematic characters. Fuck, I watch Game of Thrones. I was upset because the scene was extremely problematic, and the problematic part was completely ignored.
So if you wanna have a conversation about how fucked up it is that Fargo showed a scene where a man beat his wife to death with a hammer and tried to play it off as “dark humor”, then yeah, I’m all ears. But if you’re gonna try and start something because you’re tiffed that you think I misinterpreted your reasoning for swooning over some actor, I really don’t care.

❝ When you’re a trans woman you are made to walk this very fine line, where if you act feminine you are accused of being a parody and if you act masculine, it is seen as a sign of your true male identity. And if you act sweet and demure, you’re accused of reinforcing patriarchal ideas of female passivity, but if you stand up for your own rights and make your voice heard, then you are dismissed as wielding male privilege and entitlement. We trans women are made to teeter on this tightrope, not because we are transsexuals, but because we are women. This is the same double bind that forces teenage girls to negotiate their way between virgin and whore, that forces female politicians and business women to be aggressive without being seen as a bitch, and to be feminine enough not to emasculate their alpha male colleagues, without being so girly as to undermine their own authority. ❞

I’m sick of people wrongly defining bisexuality. It’s not ‘attraction to both men and women’ it’s about being attracted to ‘bi’ things like bicycles, binoculars, bilinguals and binary coding smh
