Hiya! I'm Markel, or Markelius here on the internet. I'm a 19 year old Native, Queer Multi-identified (demi/poly/lesbian), feminist, Canadian girl and I like to hang around here on tumblr a lot. I'm in a wonderful polyamorous relationship with my girlfriend and I love her very much. Also a huge Morrowind and Elder Scrolls fangirl and you'll see me post TES stuff a lot. I also mod Morrowind and make mostly graphical mods and occasionally I produce electronic music as well. I do parkour, urban exploration, urban climbing, and infiltration in the summer months too. That's a fair amount of information so if you wanna know anything else send me an ask!
You know, I have really have grown disdainful of the supposition that trans men are somehow better than, or excluded from the calling out of men. I very often see posts, and hear people talk about how “cis-men” do this, and “cis-men” do that, rather than just saying “men”, as if trans-men do not do many of the things cis-men do.
Of course, someone’s going to try and shit on me and say “oh, not all trans men are like that!!” and “trans men are different" here’s the thing. They aren’t. If you are living under the assumption that trans-men are somehow fundamentally different to cis-men in some huge impactful way that allows them to get away with doing the shit that cis men do with a free pass, you’re not only likely invalidating their identities, but are using the exact same excuses cis-male apologists use.
Trans-men can, and do perpetrate misogyny, transmisogyny, racism, and literally everything else cis-men can perpetrate. The mere fact they were not assigned male at birth does not exclude them from this fact. Yes, trans men can still fall victim to transphobia, and other types of discrimination, but this does not change the fact, that they are men.
If you are actually serious about treating trans men just as you would cis men, then you have to do it in feminist spaces as well. Too often are trans-men’s voices prioritized over trans women’s. Too often is the ideal image of a trans person a white, trans man. This is actively erasing trans women, perpetrating transmisogyny, and proof that trans men have male privilege. The base thing to remember here is that trans men are men, so treat them as you would men.
sometimes transguys follow me and I’m just like
why are you even here
I wanna start a bunch of text posts being like “x days not-on-T” or “anti-T” or something as a doctumentation for my blockers/hormones and as a response to the obnoxiousness of trans guys on tumblr

If dudes are expected to have a lot of sex
But ladies are expected to stay virgins until marriage
But homosexuality is bad
I’m really confused who dudes are supposed to be having all that sex with
Guys I got it
Society is literally telling dudes to go fuck themselves
i cant think of a single goddamn thing that would not benefit from the presence of more lesbians
the mainstream, cis-male centered porn industry
we need less lesbians there and more in queer porn
white people (via queergremlin) —
When aliens in galaxies 70 million light years away look through a telescope at Earth, they see dinosaurs.
Is that why there has been no alien contact? Because as far as aliens are concerned, there is legitimately no intelligent life on earth?
shit son there still isn’t intelligent life on earth
yo I’m p. sure galaxies far away would be observing the star that our current solar system is made up of instead of what came as a result of it’s supernova
we literally wouldn’t exist
I literally feel nauseous because of how pissed off I am like I was pissed off already and then my Mom came home and now she’s been on the phone with my Dad/Stepmom for like 15 minutes and like I DON’T FUCKING WANT THEM IN MY LIFE ANYMORE
FOR MY SANITY, FOR MY WELLBEING, LET ME FUCKING MOVE ON
I’VE LITERALLY BEEN TRYING TO CUT THEM OUT OF MY LIFE SINCE I WAS A TEENAGER AND THEY KEEP FUCKING FORCING THEMSELVES BACK IN AND I’M SO FUCKING ANGRY
let me move on
probably a white person —
on the topic of my voice many mics literally distort and pitch it down at least 100 cents like I don’t have this problem with professional mics but with shitty internal ones I do and it pisses me off because it’s not even how my voice sounds like and it makes me really self conscious
