When you come out as trans, people sometimes take a while to adjust to your new pronouns, or don’t quite understand.

So we launched a new campaign to help! An article that introduces the topic, a video with a rundown from trans young people, and a web app where you can learn and practice pronouns!

Here’s our easy way to help your friends and family get your pronouns right and understand why it’s important.

GUYS. CHECK THIS OUT. THIS APP WILL HELP YOU LEARN TO USE DIFFERENT PRONOUNS AND ALL THE INFO HERE IS RLY COOL AND ALL OF IT WAS WRITTEN AND DEVELOPED BY TRANS YOUTH!!!

too early to call child protective services or….?

already fucked up by naming him kieran.

Just to add another layer of WTF, the name Kieran/Keiran means “black" or "little dark one" in Gaelic. The kid’s name is basically Black Romney.

WOOOW, while people stay reaching.

"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"

aka

Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently

image

image

Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.

At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."

The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.

This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media. 

image

We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.

Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.

You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.

Ellen.. I was rooting for you..

why? why were u rooting for her? she often mocks and disparages black women’s bodies as well. ellen been problematic. par for the course. the nerd was barely funny as a stand up comic, but that was before a lot of yall time so a lot of “current” ellen don’t know who the fuck this saltine really is. boo this woman. but i mean hey yall root for the white gurl, some easy bake basic shit, cuz hey white gurl fuck yeah!….. nope

OH MY GOD, THIS FUCKING BITCH
