Driving through North Dakota right now and using someone’s phone and it’s very confusing lol. There is a screening of Queen Bee Empire tonight in Minneapolis at M.D.M
See ya thererereree www.queenbeeempire.com
I hope you aren't annoyed by this question.. but just to verify: the flyer for the event tomorrow at the Cockpit says 18+ after 10:30. Does that mean that the people under 21 can't get in for the bands, but can see the screening of Queen Bee Empire? I would really like to see the screening.. so if you could answer this, or post something on the event page that would be spectacular. Thanks :+)
oops, sorry if that’s confusing. it means that the show part is all ages, and the film screening part is 18+
omfg I had a dream about Samuel Shanahoy ln and it was cute but rlly rlly sad bc we were in luv or sm hahaha but like Sammy didn’t want me anymore and eeek I got dumped by Samuel Shanahoy….someone needs to console me on this??!!!
i h8 to ask, I know it's been asked before.. but Queen Bee Empire? will it be online soonish?
it is with much sadness and heartbreak that i must confirm that its not going to be online anytime soon, or at least not for another month. i want it be online so bad and i want for everyone to see it asap, its literally been sitting fully completed on my computer for 4 months now. i even have an online distributor which im stoked for. unfortunately for me to release it online thou i need to find a place to house the 2257 forms and for someone to be the custodian of the forms, which is proving very difficult for me and taking alot longer than i anticipated and theres alot of legal things i have to do. im leaving at the end of the week to go on tour for 5 weeks, where i wont have the time or internet access to be figuring out all this stuff. trust me, i really wish it were online, i really wanted it to be a summer release. sorry to string everyone along for so long, it was actually shot a year ago now! one day it’ll be online, and in the mean time there will be screenings.
cont. truscum are also often misogynistic,racist and gender essentialist. they believe that unless you have a GID diagnosis you're not really trans and should be excluded from support networks, communities online and irl and medical care. they are disrespectful of pronouns, bully young genderqueer/nb bloggers and basically consider themselves gender gatekeepers. in short, I'd be wary of aligning yourself publicly with problematic groups without looking into their actions first.
OH GOD dammit, i didnt know any of those things. ive seriously never come across the term before. sounds horrible, i definitely dont support or agree with any of that.
if you've never heard of 'truscum' heres why some people might find it problematic to hear you say you agree with their politics; truscum are largely ftm guys that believe being trans is solely a medical condition, that you are only trans if you experience dysphoria and want surgery, that people who fall outside of the gender binary are not trans and that they are apropriating their identity and therefore dont deserve support medical or otherwise bc their 'trendiness' harms 'real' trans people.
ohhhhhhh, thanks for the info. i was literally just going off one sentence i found on urban dictionary. gosh, people on the internet just need to chill and live their lives and let other people live theirs.
Are you truscum? Anyone can be trans. Trans is a feel. I'm fucking glad not to be cis. Reject the gender binary. Reject oppression. Gender exists for the oppressor. I am trans. I have no dysphoria but I'm still trans.
what the hell, i have never heard that term in my life, i had to google it, but when i read the definition i was like ‘yeah i agree with that’. (EDIT/UPDATE: ive been informed now what the term actually means and i dont agree with it or care to associate myself with it.) i dont think that being trans is a choice (however being publicly out as trans is for some) and even though anyone can be trans i mean that in a -people all of different sexualities, class backgrounds, cultures, nationalities, levels of education, occupations, ages etc can be trans - kinda way. i do think that there are factors that define someone as trans or are part of the trans experience. i wish i was cis, but i not every trans person does and thats legit too. i know many cis people who do reject the gender binary and who do not uphold societal gender norms and who actively reject oppression. i do understand trans peoples frustration with cis people, i often feel extremely misunderstood by the majority of cis people in my life and it effects how close i can be with friends or how much i can share about my personal feelings and experiences with others or how trusting i can be of others. but at the end up the day i dont think cis people are the enemy or that they dont understand or believe in gender liberation. i dont agree this whole “gender exists for the oppressor” thing…. dammit, you are totally a troll arnt you?!?!?! whatever anyway, i feel like that attitude is similar to when people think that androgynous cis women are more queer or genderfuck or progressive or radical or destroying gender norms than femme cis women which is total bulllllllshitttttt. also gender is a real thing, if it wasnt than there wouldnt be trans people……. many awesome and amazing trans people have a gender and that gender is really important to them. i do think that non binary people and their experiences are real and i also think that gender is real. the enemy is the state, fuck societies made up gender norms and gender roles, fuck the oppression of women, fuck the patriarchy, and fuck weirdo trolls on the internet.
ok lil update: i google it more about found out the word is said as tru-scum, i thought it was trus-cum, lol, anyone someone said that truscum believe thats people need to have surgery… i dont believe that cause 1. thats not in the best interest of some individuals lives, 2. its not an option for everyone, 3. people have all different types of dysphoria and surgury may not be the best solution 4. its none of my business if someone has or hasnt had surgery or if they will or wont. i was just saying that the urban dictionary definition made sense to me as it reflects my personal experience. honestly fuck all this weird internet lingo, it just sounds like people being haters or thinking that they are better than others.
another update: ok so people are telling me more about what truscum means. it does not sound at all like anything i would want to associate myself with or have on my blog. im just keeping this here for reference as now all these people think that i identify with truscum 1. ew 2. as if 3. seriously though…. it kinda seems like the opposite of everything i stand for, i feel like truscum people would hate me
