sideblog for CLAMP things because I definitely don't have a problem at all

about me


the fucking worst is when people are like “you hate people for having a different opinion than you!!!!” like im not shitting on this guy because he thinks pistachio ice cream is gross im shitting on him because he actually believes that i and people like me dont deserve basic human rights and respect and safety

ashesmith whispered : i was going to follow you, really i was. I love a lot of your Metas for TB and your image posts. However, your idea that the Tokyo Babylon tag is YOURS to police sickens me as much as the instances I've seen you ranting about here. Im sorry but i just cannot support someone who preaches social justice but doesn't have the wisdom to see that a dissenting opinion is not and out and out attack on the community. Its a shame too because there's so much good here too. I wish you luck here and in life

I’m not quite sure what possessed you to send this, though I’m flattered you like my meta.

First, to my own recollection the singular time I called someone out for posting something in a clamp tag, it was the Tsubasa one and never TB, because it was with respect to the new TWC announcement. Second, the op asked me to drop it after a few exchanges, which I respected and have not since brought up.

Third, ok, fuck you. I am a goddamn queer woman and I feel unsafe literally everywhere because of it. Even among my unusually supportive family, there are veiled digs at my identity and painful “”“opinions”“” I have to fucking put up with all the time. My parents don’t think I should be legally allowed to get married. But I suffer those opinions.

I don’t want to excessively involve the post I’m assuming you’re referring to as, again,  the op said to goddamn drop it, and I don’t want to imply they’re the kind of lovingly homophobic my ultra Catholic parents are. But don’t fucking give me shit for speaking my mind when this is where I’m coming from.

The only “policing of opinions” I will ever do is when I, personally, feel unsafe having heard them in my safe spaces. Previously this fandom had been one of those safe spaces for me. Even if you think I’m out of line in doing so, don’t you dare boil this down to the pathetic stereotype of social justice I see everywhere on this site. It’s about me, and my fucking right to object to “opinions” that feel threatening to me.

I am angry. I don’t want to make more of this than it is and I certainly don’t want this to blow up, but I am publishing this with all my anger included because I would like to make myself clear once and for goddamn all on this point.

Once again I am confined to mobile and didn’t fucking get the inbox notifications - so to the like 3 ppl who’ve sent me stuff in the past. God knows how long I will try to respond when I can!!

Reminder that my me appreciation blog tag (also the about me link in my sidebar) continues to be my favorite thing I’ve ever done on this blog and the best representation of me possible
