in case everyone ever forgot: part of the reason cis people hate trans people is because they think the things a lot of trans people have to do to their bodies is gross and wrong
Hatred of transitioning bodies is a pretty decent sized part of transphobia js
While I enjoy many of the Fleischer Bros animated “Popeye” cartoons, they and all the other film and tv adaptations give little hint of the rich characterizations of the original E. C. Segar cartoon strips.
One example is “Olive Oyl”. Segar’s strips often parodied the “Damsel in Distress” cliche, which the animated cartoons were to unfortunately embrace and use ad nauseam. I the original Popeye universe, if you couldn’t have Popeye himself on your side in a fight, Olive Oyl was probably your next best choice, as she was almost as tough as he was and at least as resourceful.
Olive is lot tougher in the comics! In the cartoons, she’s a lot sillier. I love them both! =D
(Marginalised Orientations, Gender Alignments, and Intersex)
- a blanket term referring to everyone who isn’t a dyadic cisgender heterosexual and heteroromantic person.
- it’s shorter, more inclusive and easier to pronounce than LGBTQIAP+
- not a slur like “queer”
- doesn’t have a history of including dyadic cishet kinksters, paedophiles, or rapists like GSRM (Gender, Sexual and Romantic Minorities)
- doesn’t include dyadic cishet women while excluding binary trans men like MOGII (Marginalised Orientations, Gender Identities, and Intersex)
- Allies can’t take the “A”, because “Marginalised Orientations, Gender Allies, and Intersex” wouldn’t make the least bit of sense
it’s important to realize that any narrative that portrays heterosexuality as endangered in any context is homophobic by nature because it prioritizes a completely metaphorical situation over what actual gay people face everyday
and by making a heterosexual romance the main plot, in a context where it is forbidden, even if every single character isn’t straight, it is making sure the narrative knows that the heterosexual romance is the most important, the most real, and the most genuine
now add this in with a premise that assumes sex=gender and that outlawing only heterosexual sex causes a rift between 2 genders and casts the only androgynous/ambiguously gendered characters as the villains
and yes, you get a plot that is entirely transphobic and homophobic and i’m so sorry you consider this to be “tumblr complaining” when the erasure and invalidation of our identities is a very real issue especially when so many people are uncritical of this

Don’t you talk to me
honestly Tommy Wiseau is the only person I wouldn’t even care if he did something problematic because I don’t think he will ever understand how humans are meant to function and he’s just doing his best to pass as a real person
