Why is biphobia almost always directed towards queer women in relationships with men? What about bisexual men that are in relationships with women? Why is that ok? I’ve been seeing so much biphobia over tumblr lately and every single time it’s been directee towards women….

Wtf? I feel like everyone is totally taking this out of context. I’m against biphobia completely considering identify as queer. I just am making an observation that biphobia is almost always directed towards bisexual women. That’s it. It’s that simple.

But you’re wrong.

Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: ‘You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society. Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via anarchei)

The vampire logic of work sucks out our life force while building a deviant social cohesion composed of failure and shame. It usurps in this way the possibility for a different way of living. We cannot be free in these circumstances. And not free, changing course is impossible. 'Laborless Day', Bernard Marszalek (via thesubversivesound)

I’ve been seeing so much biphobia over tumblr lately and every single time it’s been directee towards women. Might as well call it the LG community, with all the phobias and sexism running rampant. It disgusts me.

Well keep in mind that tumbr is disproportionally women. Out in the real world men and nb people face plenty of biphobia. It is okay for bisexual men to date women and it’s biphobia that says it’s not. This post is shit.

Q: why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
