Bisexuality misidentifies two genders. There are, in fact, as many genders as colors. Pan-sexual refers to all genders. Please let me know if you'd like to talk to me about this! I'm happy to! I think you're a hilarious person. :)

I disagree — I identify as bisexual but I don’t believe bisexuality excludes everything but traditional definitions of male and female. I’ve had history with trans men and trans women, as well as a non-binary person. Like I said, a lot of people who identify as bi do so because they’re attracted to their own and other genders. Those are the two parts of the “bi.” The term bisexual is older than the term pansexual, and a lot of older people (and younger people, too!) choose to identify as bi for various reasons. 

Honestly, I meet the criteria for both terms, but I choose to identify as bi. One of the big reasons is that I find gender to be a big influence in my attraction — I find different things physically attractive about different genders, for different reasons!

It’s a big semantic argument, and one that I find frustrating. People in the LGBTQIA+ community shouldn’t be fighting — we should support each other and celebrate our differences!

I first of all want to thank you for responding to me. I read through the handout on the semantic differences between (too late, as it turns out), and I’m pleasantly surprised to learn that I agree with you. I feel like arguments in the “I’m more supportive than you are” vein are inherently toxic, and I thank you for identifying one of mine. I don’t make that mistake often and I’m a bit embarrassed about it. 
Secondly, how you choose to identify is your business, and your business alone. I guess I’ve got a hair trigger when it comes to people assuming gender is binary. I’m a less powerful advocate because of that weakness. Thank you for reminding me. 
I’ll have to think about how these differences change my opinion on how I identify (team ‘bi’ or team ‘pan’). Thanks again for giving me a chance to think. I wish (as always when I err this way) that I had done so sooner.

I am absolutely delighted to have had this discussion with you! You seem like an awesome and open person, and I appreciate you hearing me out and taking what I said to heart. All in all, I think this is one of the best tumblr interactions I’ve ever had on this subject. Thank you so much! My inbox is always open if you ever want to discuss things further. :)

Well, that was unexpectedly civil. Listen and learn.

A designer for Tumblr says Tumblr is blue, and “dark,” because nobody notices blue. “Everything’s blue,” he says. “Posts are bright on that blue background and lifted up with shadows.” Blue is for the parts you “don’t need immediately.” You can make your Tumblr any color you want; it will appear that way to you, and to people to come directly to your page on their own. Your Tumblr doesn’t have to be blue until it shares space with others.


Internet, Why So Blue?

The sky suggests infinity but the little screen on dad’s phone seems to supply it. What is the answer, then, when a child asks: Why is the internet blue?

Because blue is the perfect color, obvs.

You know how there will sometimes (often) be that one story that saturates Tumblr all day to the point that you just want to scream “SHUT UP ABOUT X ALREADY!” 

Today it’s Zou Bisou Bisou.

Oh good

Now I get to see nasty ‘shopped nudes of LiLo all over my dash.

Ha, that’s me on the drums in the video.

I would fall off the Internet party circuit a few months later, completely nauseated with the “sameness” of it all and the utterly nonsensical questions about “why social media” and “how social media” and “when social media”, etc. At one point I was so fed up with being in the NYC internet scene, that when I gave a presentation in front of a group of people at a 92 Y Tribeca Mashable event, I said that the secret to success online was “being a girl and milking it for what it’s worth.”

Yes, if I had stayed in the social media circuit I would now have 6,000 more Twitter followers to add to my stagnant 5,500, I’d own more schwag, and I’d be closer friends with Caroline McCarthy… but truth be told I much more enjoy saying “I used to do that” than “this is what I do, have done, and will continue to do.”

So social media doesn’t interest me as much as it used to anymore. Big fucking deal. I still love the internet, technology, and being an early adopter. That’s how I got into it to begin with and that’s how I’ll get into the next big thing, be there first, become a known “first-er” and then drop off the face of the earth. 

I guess you can call me a legitimate internet hipster. Too cool for mainstream social media and overcrowded meetups. That’s so 2008. 

2012 is… hmm… what is 2012?

2012 is Loutallica covering Immigrant Song.

WHAT IS 2012?
