For real though, Tumblr feminists. What do you want?
“I deserve to be seen as sexy too, even though I’m not a blonde, white, size 0! I should be called sexy just as often as those girls do!” “Sexy?! How dare you call me that! You’re objectifying me!”
And no, it’s not that half of them say the first thing and half of them say the second. They pretty much all say the first thing all the time, and say the second one when anyone compliments them.
I unfollowed someone once because every other post was a picture of themselves going “I’m so sexy!” “Sexy femme for life!” “Sexiest queer bitch on Tumblr!” but then when an anon was like “You’re right, you’re totally sexy!” she went all “HOW FUCKING DARE YOU CALL ME SEXY?! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY I’M SEXY! I’M NOT HERE FOR YOU TO OBJECTIFY! HOW DARE YOU EVEN LOOK AT MY BODY?! FUCK YOU!”
wanting to not be held to heteronormative, ciscentric, white supremacist, ableist, fatphobic beauty standards=/=not wanting to be seen as sexy.
wanting to be empowered in your sexuality and not put down for how you look=/=wanting to be seen as a sex object.
As a trans woman this really bugs me, because we are CONSTANTLY objectified and hyper-sexualized or considered unloveable & unfuckable. I don’t want to be objectified (outside of a consensual kink based relationship). I want to be admired. Huge difference. I don’t want my fucking identity fetishized. It’s degrading and dehumanizing.
