“In her view, a trans person is “constructed” by a medical discourse and therefore is the victim of a social construct. But this idea of social constructs does not acknowledge that all of us, as bodies, are in the active position of figuring out how to live with and against the constructions – or norms – that help to form us. We form ourselves within the vocabularies that we did not choose, and sometimes we have to reject those vocabularies, or actively develop new ones. For instance, gender assignment is a “construction” and yet many genderqueer and trans people refuse those assignments in part or in full. That refusal opens the way for a more radical form of self-determination, one that happens in solidarity with others who are undergoing a similar struggle.”

basedmountaindew replied to your post: is canadian fanta weird because this i…

Canadian fanta is fuck weird looking and I’m afraid to drink it. In the us fanta is just like crush (worse) but up here it looksall misty and juicy and filled with natural mystery and that scares me I want my orange soda as caustic and fake as possib

it doesn’t taste that bad, like “budget orangina w/o pulp” is the best way to describe it

but it’s definitely not american fanta and that’s a little offputting

where am i going to get my fake orange flavour now

…i applied to paint murals for the arts lounge in like april

i dont feel bad that i got turned down for this but im laughing because whoever did these was the sort of person who did the same colourful swirly paintings for every assignment in art class in high school 

i can just see them now with their final project for grade twelve: “hope”, a 9x9 acrylic painting of a turtle but the shell is a swirl and there’s a few dove shaped splotches!!!

sights n sounds in the arts lounge: for some reason, board games are everywhere and there is a severely mediocre bunch of paintings hung everywhere

don’t fucking tell me that my talent is a “blessing” or a “gift.”  it wasn’t given to me at all.  i got to where i am today because i picked up a crayon in kindergarten and i haven’t put it down for 20 fucking years, not because some supernatural entity decided to sprinkle a little magic talent dust into my dna
