i never ever want to hear a cis person making someone’s pronouns a huge goddamn issue when it shouldnt be and some big ordeal they PERSONALLY have to go through. u act like yr trans positive shit but boo hoo it’s sooo hard for you to use different pronouns for a person you love and care about when YOU KNOW 100%  what you should be using in a sentence! ‘but “they/them” doesnt sound right!’ ‘but im used to seeing them as ___’ wow it must be so hard being you :( imagine going out of your way to change a word in a sentence to make someone feel comfortable and safe :( tbh eat several knives and never speak again i hate you

chutzpadik:

experimenting w gender identity is always something to be encouraged. transness is not a precious commodity. it’s not something u can appropriate. and even if u discover that you’re actually cis, that you feel most comfortable as a cis boy or girl, exploring gender will always teach u something new and important about yourself.

you’re not a “transtrender” if u aren’t or haven’t always been completely confident in your transness. u and your identity are 1000% valid.

  • Stop calling people who practice palm reading, scrying, and tarot readings g*psies
  • Stop calling women who wear head scarves and flowing skirts and metal jewelry g*psies
  • Stop calling nomadic people g*psies
  • Stop calling free-spirited people g*psies
  • Stop calling hippies g*psies
  • Stop using the term g*psy in your title, header, url or links you put on posts
  • Stop thinking that Hollywood “g*psies” are actual accurate representations of the Romani people

Fun facts about the word g*psy

  • It’s a slur
  • If you’re a white bread kid calling yourself a g*psy it’s bullshit and racist
  • If you know people of Roma descent and they say g*psy, that’s their right because it is a word that they can choose to reclaim or use but you can’t (think of it like the “n” word. You may now POC’s that use it but you shouldn’t if you aren’t a POC because that’s not right)
  • The term being “gypped” or being cheated or swindled originated from the racist slur g*psy so try saying something less fucking racist like “i got ripped off”
  • Basically
  • Stop using that fucking word because it’s racist
  • it’s not up for debate
  • don’t do it
  • ok

What you can call them instead:

  • Roma/Romani (because that is the commonly accepted term to cover all branches and groups of the Romani peoples)
  • If you know that someone falls under the blanket term Roma, ask them what they would preferred to be referred to as because that’s just as fucking important as using the proper pronouns believe it or not

Love,

Someone from another minority which is regularly ignored, fetishized, and disrespected through the use of racist terms that people can’t get through their thick fucking skulls

Small note on what’s mentioned regarding “PoC” using the N word; no, if you aren’t Black you shouldn’t be using the N word.

"GAUZE"

If I remember correctly it was in 1999 in a studio in Los Angeles where I first heard this word as a contender for the album title.  Thinking about how long it’s taken us to name other albums, I think that we named GAUZE at a very early stage.

I could not have imagined that seven years later I would be returning to Los Angeles to play live.

I wonder how long it’s been since I listened to this album from start to finish.  Since I only listen to old songs when we decide we’re going to play them on tour.

So since we will do the GAUZE tour for the first time in fifteen years I listened to all of GAUZE. I’m going to write about what I thought, felt and remembered from listening to each song. If I wait until the next issue I will probably have completely forgotten. (laughs)
