i’m so confused at the amount of fellow cis people who think cis is a slur
it literally means not trans that is it what the hell is wrong with y’all
I would never give anyone a label that they have not already applied to themselves.
I would not call a trans-person “trans” unless I heard them say it about themselves first, to me.
Likewise I would not call a cis-person “cis” unless the same happened.
Labels are not always welcome.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen ‘cis’ used in a non-negative way. It’s usually followed by the word ‘scum’ and an explanation of why such people are ignorant, close-minded bigots.

Don’t make friends with an artist just so you can use them as a trophy.
Don’t make friends with an artist just to brag that you know them.
Don’t make friends with an artist just so they draw/write/sew stuff/make photos for you.
Don’t make friends with an artist just so you can use them.
I agree with these statements 100%. BUT, at the same time, I would add:
"Don’t assume that everyone who is nice to you wants to use you for your art. People CAN be nice without ulterior motives."
"Sometimes people just like to talk about their friends. That doesn’t necessarily mean they see you as a trophy."

Next time you want to send someone a message on Tumblr, try this: if it’s something nice (a compliment, sympathy, praise, etc), send it anon. If it seems like a waste of time to say nice things knowing you won’t be recognized for it, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.
Protip: Things like “I want to see you in your underwear” do not count as nice things to say anonymously.
Conversely, if you want to criticize or give negative feedback, don’t send it anon. If you don’t believe in what you’re saying enough to back it up with your name, you probably shouldn’t be sending them in the first place. If you’re afraid they’ll get angry at you, then make sure what you’re saying is constructive (“You could do this to improve.” rather than “Wow, you suck at this.”). Let them know you’re trying to -help-, not belittle.
If you want to send something mean-spirited or rude, then DON’T. No, not even if you’re angry. Remember: there is another living, thinking human being getting that message from you. They have feelings just like you, and words -can- hurt. If hurting other people makes you feel better about yourself, well… just stop for a minute and think about what that says about you. No, seriously. THINK ABOUT IT. You can be better than that.

bangormc3rd asked: Random fact: Pembroke Welsh Corgis are the best dogs. That's not even my opinion. They've done studies. Bombarding various dog breeds them with science rays, and corgis were proven to be the best. There are (one assumes) charts and everything!
Yes but are they better than cats?
The answer is no.
We’ll have to agree to disagree, my Belgian chum.
