Futanari basically means born and identifying as female, but with a penis, whether born with it or not. So it is different from trans. If you want to be really specific it means she has both a penis and a vagina, but other than the penis is totally female (and thus different intersex as well). Futanari also isn't just a "male fetish" as there are many non-male people who enjoy it as well. But it is generally accepted that there is a distinct difference between futanari/newhalf and transwomen.

That’s what I thought, hence my confusion. My intent in drawing Elsa with a penis wasn’t to portray a realistic trans or intersex person, but rather what you described.  That being said, I understand that the porn industry overall is not at all kind or considerate of actual trans folks, and regardless of my idea of what “futanari” means or represents it will carry different connotations to different people.

I’m a confident heteroromantic asexual. 
I may or may not be falling in love with my gay best friend, who is beautiful and clever and selfless and basically perfect in every way. 
I value our friendship too much to ever tell him. 
I can’t even be sure how romantic this crush is because, through an ace lens, it’s a lot less clear where the boundaries of platonic friendship end and begin.
Thinking about him is wonderful and heartbreaking. 
What’s an ace girl to do?

gaymeme:

can we please fucking destroy the idea that pansexuals are automatically flirty and that asexuals are incapable of flirting or being outgoing and romantically social? can we please clarify that these stereotypes are just as incorrect as the stereotype that all gays are sassy and all lesbians are masculines? please??

pokekin are so great oh my gosh i mean just think about it you can hug your favorite pokemon you can give them forehead kisses that’s so great i love pokekin 

it’d be so so cool to make poffins or pokepuffs or candy berries together and they’d be delicious and super cute and you could even feed them to each other and be extra adorable 

and you can discuss all those pokemon theories together and talk about the different pokemon types and play the games together and maybe even make a cosplay for their kintype 

and depending on their type you could do lots of cool activities together, you could visit a stream with a water type or a forest with a grass type and you could sit out in nature and discuss what the inside of pokeballs might be like

"The Oppression Olympics"
I just want to be clear, as far as I’m aware, nearly all GSM communities are very accepting of asexuals. The queer department at my uni is super accepting.
Just… every now and again it comes up that asexuals ‘aren’t oppressed enough’ to be queer, or to have a letter in the alphabet soup (however, allies WHO ARE HETEROSEXUAL are allowed???) and then there’s a huge long debate about it and it’s seriously peturbing. Not least because of all the erasure that goes on which is exactly the kind of thing we have the biggest issue with.
Anyway, some of my friends and I are running an asexuality 101 workshop in the queer lounge for Asexuality Awareness week and that’s why I drew this.

Based on past comics posted here, I feel there may be some disagreement on this, which is why I hesitated reblogging it (the artist submitted it) for a while. However, I decided I’d rather promote healthy discussion than silence people in our own community. Please be respectful to the artist even if you don’t agree with their assessment of the situation.

Hello, Friends!

perksofbeingace:

I’d just like to leave a friendly reminder that not all aces dislike sex or have sex just to please their partners. Some aces have sex because they enjoy having sex. It sometimes seems to get lost that there are some aces who aren’t sex repulsed or indifferent. I mean, I identify as ace and I can vary from thinking sex is the bee’s knees to disinterest. Thank you and have a lovely day, friends!

To everyone

If you do not like otherkin people, please just leave them be. Unless one is directly bothering you, you are merely being an Internet troll, and making an asshole of yourself. If you bully me for being otherkin, I will report you for harassment.

Just because you do not understand something does not give you the right to mock it and bully people for it. I am astonished at how many of my recent bullies on Tumblr have been GLBT people, even some transgender people. Of all the people to bully someone for how they feel inside, I would have thought GLBT people would have been the last to do so. Do you not know, intimately, how it feels to be belittled so? I think you do. And therefore, I do not understand why you would “pay it backwards,” to coin a phrase.

I do not care how weird you think I am. I speak from my heart; I do not do this for attention any more than a transgender person or gay person does it for attention. My feelings and my frustrations are as real as yours are. I am not bothering you, so why are you bothering me?

I wonder if shitbaby is offensive to babies and that’s why it’s ageist

Well, it’s ageist (I’d say adultist, to be more precise) for the same reason “b*tch” is sexist.
