Anonymous said: The person who made the post included two posts dealing with gender which are in fact serious. The birth control th ing. There's nothinf wrong with saying people who can get pregnant. Also, the bigender thing. That's not insane. The creator of the post mocks trans people and sexualities and is in fact a cismale lol

Anonymous said: OOH I get it now, thank you for clearing that up uou I got really concerned because I DO recognise the word sex as gender and I thought you were saying "people get upset that you can't use their anatomy as their gender" but I was just confused aaahh
I’m sorry I couldn’t be clearer so you understood the first time around
foervraengd said: the misconception behind that word is because not everyone has english as main language. Thus many languages have two separate words for sex(genitalia stuff) and sex (intercourse). Whereas "sex" in most countries that aren't english speaking, refers to the act of intercourse. I didn't know sex also meant your biological gender until like three-four years ago.
Yeah I understand that but I’ve seen several people get offended over the use of sex in reference to someone’s biological sex or congratulate someone on using “anatomy” in place of “sex” even though in that context they mean exactly the same thing. I understand that english as a second language can explain ignorance, but still I somewhat doubt that’s the case with all of these people.

It doesn't make any sense and in the tag (I can't quote it bc I'm on mobile ug) something abou t 'genitals you have not the genitals you like' or something and I am?????? I really need help understanding what you're saying because I know plenty of people who could and would go apeshit about something like th at
OH WELL there are multiple parties whom I have seen who seem to think that “sex” refers exclusively to the act of sex, and then by extension when used in context along with someones biological attachments between the legs it still refers to the act of sexual intercourse. I think. I dont know I’m not sure but that’s what I assume because a lot of people think that sex in that context is queer/transphobic

Tumblr insanity hall of fame.
Oh my god some people on this website are fucking crazy.
And that’s the most frustrating thing about depression. It isn’t always something you can fight back against with hope. It isn’t even something — it’s nothing. And you can’t combat nothing. You can’t fill it up. You can’t cover it. It’s just there, pulling the meaning out of everything. That being the case, all the hopeful, proactive solutions start to sound completely insane in contrast to the scope of the problem.
It would be like having a bunch of dead fish, but no one around you will acknowledge that the fish are dead. Instead, they offer to help you look for the fish or try to help you figure out why they disappeared.
This is actually a really good way to explain it, I think.
I WILL NEVER NOT REBLOG THIS
Favorite line will always be “No, see, that solution is for a different problem than the one I have.”
