Seriously though it can get really addicting to tie your self-esteem and self-assurance to cosplay because 1) it’s a very visible hobby and 2) it’s relatively easy to get positive attention once you’re doing it

but the problem with that is 1) it’s not good to invest all your self-esteem and self-assurance / confidence to a single hobby / interest because it’s fickle. Cosplay fame isn’t real at the end of the day and has pretty much 0 value in the real world. It can be gratifying and exciting to get attention for it but, you know, nerds in costumes! And 2) Oftentimes it leads to ego trips and elitism and generally being a gross person to be around so just pull an Elsa and let it go. Just let it go and don’t let the grossness take over.

The funny thing about this is not that it’s correct but that this is true for basically anything. If you invest 100% of your self confidence into a single aspect of your life, you’re going to have a bad time.

LOL YUP it’s funny cause like trying to become a well-rounded individual with balanced interests and investments in different things it’s better all around!!

The Shot Glass Heard Around The World
In 1969, the Stonewall riots — precipitated when the NYPD burst into the famed gay bar and started being their usually abusive selves — defined the modern gay movement.
Among the first to physically resist the police was Marsha P. Johnson, the now infamous transgender rights activist who co-founded S.T.A.R. (Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the ’70s.
At 1:20 in the morning on Saturday, June 28, 1969, four plainclothes police officers entered Stonewall Inn and announced “Police! We’re taking the place!" 
Officers forced the customers to form into two lines divided by perceived gender and show them their genitals to confirm if it matched the gender on their identification card.
At some point during the raid, Marsha Johnson proclaimed, ‘I got my civil rights!' and then threw a shot glass into a mirror, adding on to the tension and creating an atmosphere of resistance. Some witnesses and historians believe her action is what instigated the riot.
Patrons began to refuse to produce their I.D. and police decided to arrest everyone still at the bar. Those who were not arrested gathered outside the bar and quickly drew a crowd of over 1,000 queers. As rumors spread through the crowd that those inside were being beaten by cops, they began throwing pennies, beer bottles and other items at police.
A drag queen who was shoved by an officer in front of the crowd responded by hitting him on the head with her purse as the crowd began to boo.
Soon after, an unidentified lesbian was hit on the head with a billy club after complaining that her handcuffs were too tight. She faced the bystanders and shouted, “Why don’t you guys do something?”
Police threw her into the back of a patrol wagons, at that point the crowd became a mob and collectively resisted the police.
——-
Along with Sylvia Rivera, the two transgender revolutionaries created S.T.A.R. and STAR House in which they housed, fed and clothed homeless drag queens and trans* youth by hustling in the streets of NYC so that their children didn’t have to.
Marsha P. Johnson is often credited for inciting the Stonewall Riots, yet she receives close to no recognition by mainstream Gay Organizations and the queer community. I have no doubt that the erasure of Marsha’s participation in the riots and the Gay Liberation Movement is due to her being a black, transgender radical. Had she’d been a white gay cis-male, her name would be permanently embedded in every queer’s mind.
I know Marsha as a courageous queer revolutionary, a queen of Queens, a Stonewall Veteran, a dedicated activist, a mother of S.T.A.R. and a personal idol. She deserves more than anyone I know, to be recognized by the queer community.
In July 6, 1992, Johnson’s body was found floating in the Hudson River off the West Village Piers shortly after the 1992 Pride March. Friends of Johnson claims she was harassed near the spot where her body was found. The police disregarded this and ruled her death a suicide without any evidence. However, in November 2012, the NYPD re-opened the case.

white liberal queers shit themselves over Stonewall yet continue to ignore, attack, exclude, belittle, and engage in violence against trans* and queer POC, without which there would be no fucking Stonewall. Know your roots, queer is community.

transwerewolf:

if you misgender someone dont pull the “im sorry im trash„ im sorry aaaa im garbage” shit stop making this about you just apologize normally and dont guilt people into coddling you by insulting yourself

completely ignoring that some people seriously have self esteem issues and are so self critical that every mistake they make just makes them hate themselves more and more until they see themselves as completely worthless

its still an incorrect way to apologize, and having self esteem issues doesnt diminish that you hurt someone, youre still making it about yourself and putting the responsibility on the person you misgendered to try to make you feel better. even if its unintentional its still shitty and im fed up with people putting themselves down because its just another way for people to make things all about how they feel and not how the person you hurt feels

its also really manipulative and it basically sends the message that you shouldnt correct someone because itll make them feel bad and its like

a fairly common tactic thats been used on me in like 636547467 different situations, misgendering is just one of them

Bonus points for jumping to ‘you correcting me is upsetting and hurtful’ without ever actually hitting the apology step.
