"Google isn’t the company that we should have handed the Web over to"

not on tumblr today, In Protest

queer community politics, labeling Show more
"For me, the ugliness and unwieldiness of LGBTQ add insult to injury. As does the fact that it is not a label that accurately describes me or any other American. It describes a coalition, yes, but not any actual person."
me: ...actually i use all the terms in that acronym for myself depending on context
i guess i'm not the author or 'any other American', tho, so i'm not a counterexample
opinions about language Show more
look i'm not super optimistic about gender-neutral Spanish getting widespread adoption as the way of talking about mixed groups or people of unspecified gender, and i certainly don't expect we'll get rid of grammatical gender, but 'gender-neutral Spanish is the only correct way to talk about nonbinary people unless they use binary grammatical gender for themselves' is a hill i'm willing to die on
media being shitty about nb people, all caps Show more
someone should hire me to write a style guide for talking about nb people in Spanish. the first line of it will say 'YES I REALISE THIS IS NOT RAE APPROVED, THEY CAN GET FUCKED'
except, y'know, in Spanish.
media being shitty about nb people Show more
