    Sorry about the raindrops on my lens but it was the cloud forest so it rained constantly.

  5. Anonymous asked: you are a pretentious prick who is also a transphobic piece of trash, go to hell

    fishingboatproceeds:

    There is so much of this stuff in my ask box, and most of it not even anonymous, but I don’t want to call out any particular user because I know they’ll then get a lot of hateful asks and the cycle will just continue.

    First off, there’s a comma splice in your ask. I just have to let you know that, on account of how I’m a pretentious prick.

    I hope that I’m not transphobic. I’ve been public and vocal in my support for the rights of trans people for years, and I’ve tried over the years to amplify trans voices rather than pretending to be able to speak for them. 

    Look, I am a person, and I am not a particularly good one. I am screwed up and make a lot of mistakes. But I am not a piece of trash. I would imagine that you are also screwed up and make a lot of mistakes, but you aren’t a piece of trash either.

    But it is still hurtful—very hurtful—to hear people call me a piece of trash. It just makes me sad to hear, the way I think it would make most people sad to hear. The certainty and lack of nuance in that characterization reflects a broader lack of nuance in online discourse these days that just bums me out. 

    The sentence “I hope that I’m not transphobic” hit me hard. Sometimes it just makes me really sad to realize that, sometimes, the best one can say is “I hope that I’m not transphobic/racist/sexist/etc..” That you can never really be 100% sure how problematic or oppressive your behavior and opinions are, and that no matter how much painful, exhausting energy I put into trying to make myself a better person and treat people better, it seems like there will just always be moments where I catch myself thinking or doing something oppressive and terrible. That there are these things that are a part of me that I really do hate, that affect how I interact with people, that affect who I think can consider me a good friend, that I want so sorely to remove, but I’m not sure if they ever truly can be. It’s kinda strange being faced with notions of ‘everyone deserves a good self-esteem’ right along with ‘you are human garbage if you are oppressive in any way,’ and as a privileged person trying to make myself better it’s pretty easy to just go with the latter notion and disregard the self-esteem thing altogether. I also realize that the pain on the other end is entirely different and way worse and something I’ll probably never understand (I don’t anticipate being much more gender fluid in the future, I guess (or part of an ethnic minority)), and that maybe this just sounds like a straight cis white guy complaining about how changing his internal biases is hard. Maybe that’s true. Tell me if it’s true. All I know is that sometimes I feel really, really low about this stuff and it doesn’t feel very healthy to never say that.

    Reducing an out of context picture of strangers to inspiration porn is so dehumanizing.

    Oh internet you are so full of dark and light I just don’t even know what to make of you sometimes!
