I can’t believe I will be graduating in less than 12 hours… I guess I’ll have to change my description from high school to college now. In a way, chibird has embodied my high school experience in all its innocent optimism. I’ve been so blessed to be able to share my life and drawings with you all, and I thank you all for everything (especially the sweet messages that never fail to touch my heart). <3
It is such a bittersweet feeling to close this chapter of my life, and I’m not sure how the next one will go or how chibird will fit into it. After almost 3 years of drawing nearly every day, I will be taking a short break, a real one. I’ll be going on a trip with my friends, and I don’t have any drawings queued up for the next few days. That’s okay, right? I’m always scared that I will disappoint people, but this time I have to think about myself.
I will be back in a few days, so chibird will be back soon, and hopefully better than ever!
edit: And thank you so much for the congratulations everyone! <3 I was replying to everyone who replied, but I reached the tumblr ask limit. Please know that it means so much to me that you guys care.
It makes me sick to think that people think its just us girls. Anyone can go through it. Guys “have” to pretend that absolutely nothing gets to them because if they break down, they’re a “baby” or a “wuss” and that’s not true.
At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes.
Go trigger warn some shit
That’s not transphobic, though. He’s making a point that because the LGBT agenda is “barreling forward at full-speed” that the B and T of LGBT is being left behind. Everyone is focusing on the L and the G that there are people who have no idea what the B and T even stand for. He’s not being transphobic or making a slight meant to make fun of or harm the bi and trans* community. He’s making a point that no one is focusing on them because they’re focusing on the lesbian and gay community.
Mother. Fucking. This.
People really need to realize that EVERYTHING Colbert says while on camera is satire.
Satire: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the cotext of a play, novel, fiilm or other works.
He is not making a transphobic joke. He is not honestly saying that bi and trans people do not count/matter/exist. He is making humor in order to shed light on the fact that they are forgotten.
He is doing this to raise fucking awareness that there is more to LGBT than LG. He is raising a big flag that says “Hey, don’t forget about these guys. They count. They matter. Why aren’t you doing anything about them? Why aren’t they discussed?” He is not trying to say “They don’t matter.”
So please stop with the self righteous, self pity, “social justice” comments unless you know what you are talking about.
I do appreciate that Bisexual is matched with bacon. I rather enjoy bacon.
This is why I love the Colbert Show.
Yeah, drawing attention to bi and trans erasure through satire is not in itself biphobic or transphobic.
Come on guys. Satire.
