Some basic stuff about me: I'm from Texas, but my Dad is from El Salvador. Despite this I do not speak a lick of Spanish, though I can German fairly well. I also English well too, please note the lovely vocabulary that is my blog title. I attend a University and study Geology. Rocks are my passion, unlike fashion.
Warning: I do post ponies. Why? Because it's a good show. You should watch an episode, it's surprisingly good.
My blog is not typically saturated from them, but it's definitely one of the regular things I post.
There's a lot of Scenery, Geology, Animals, Pokemon and whatever I find humorous or interesting on this blog. Essentially, I re-blog anything I like, as this is my personal blog you see.
I just recognized why the term “privilege, ” pisses me off so much. It’s usually in the form of a “you message,” not an “I message”… for you psych majors out there.
To the LGBTQ movement, “you messages” put people on the defensive. It’s attacking them. It also sounds like the blame is being laid on them, even if it’s a call to the system, it still sounds personal. “I messages” are messages that express your feelings and opt people to listen and they can still adress a fucked up system.
“Cis gender people have the privilege to go to the restroom whenever they want without being harassed.”
“I want to use the restroom without being harassed just like everyone else.”
Which statement sounds more approachable? Which one do you think will have a greater impact? Which one, do you think, will cause more people to listen?
