As much as I love BBC - and I think we all know I love BBC - when do we get to meet this man in that ‘verse?

"Your too fat."

"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

"Cosplay to your size!"

"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

I really like you C:

Anonymous asked: But breasts ARE sexual organs? They release oxytocin when stimulated, that makes them sexual.

algrenion:

ive had to deal w this argument before ok listen here

boobs do the oxytocin thing when theyre stimulated yes, nipples are an erogenous zone. Men’s nipples do this too. Now read over those two sentences and let the double standard dawn on you okay? Think about it if both kinds of nips release oxytocin when you do the touch touch on them, why is only one kind of nip considered a sexual nip? sexism that’s why

it’s ridiculous and technically makes a dude’s nipples more inappropriate than a lady’s nipples because boy nipples serve virtually no other purpose than to be stimulated by temperature change or by sexual activity, while girl nipples serve the added purpose of oh you know, feeding babies no big deal

but nah man nah both can be aroused so both nips are sexual or no nips are so make up your mind

you know where else is an erogenous zone?? ears. Are you wearing an ear bra/?? Why the fuck arent you wearing your fucking ear bra you trash put on yoourfucking ear bra youre not allowed to show your fucking ears thats so inappropriate and its makinng me horny its distracting me from my school work youre not following the dresscode wear your fucking ear bra yo ufucking

1st binders can be pretty expensive and hard to get especially depending on your living situation2nd clothing and hairstyles have no gender and applying genders to them is incredibly cissexist the clothing you wear does not define your gender3rd not everyone has parents or family members who are accepting and physically transitioning can be stressful or even dangerous for them4th there is no preset criteria for what level of masculinity or femininity you have to reach before you can be considered trans the only thing you need to be considered trans is identifying as trans5th you use a troll face in your shitty strawman argument your point is instantly invalid

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Let’s talk a little more about why this is not only a shitty attitude to take, but also a very dangerous one as well. All the points noted above are completely true, so lets build on top of them (though in a slightly different order).
First, gender identity and gender expression are both incredibly personal and also highly public. Many transgender folk live in situations where their gender cannot be safely expressed in a public fashion. This does not invalidate their gender identity. Some live in highly controlling homes, some are dependent upon parents, guardians or others for various things needed for bodily survival, and some might work in jobs or careers where their ability to express their gender is limited by bigoted minds in power above them.
Though we tend to see the internet as a haven, online gender expression is not nearly as safe a space as you might think either, as many people (especially young ones) live in situations where their online activity may be monitored to some degree. Similarly, many jobs monitor their employees online behavior, and even rumors that an employee is not behaving “appropriately” online can cost them hours, promotions, or even their career. Over 90% of transgender individuals have experienced some form of harassment at work, and 26% have lost their jobs because of their identity. Not everyone can afford to lose their livelyhood because of their identity.
This means that even if they WANTED to express themselves in your outlined fashion, they might not be free to do so (and this is ignoring your highly problematic use of “girly”, because totalmoetoolbag pretty much summed up the issue with that in item no. 2 on their list). Though it should be a right, having the freedom and safety to explore and express your gender in a free fashion is currently a privileged in our society, and many people live in situations where being trans would put them at risk for homelessness, abuse, violence, and possibly death. 
Second, as stated above, binders are expensive. And considering that transgender people are four to five times more likely to live in poverty (DOUBLE the numbers in general population), basing someones gender expression on their ability to bind is classist. Just because you can afford a binder doesn’t invalidate someones identity if they can’t. 
Third,  41% of the transgender population have attempted suicide. Let that sink in for a moment. If you had a room with 100 transgender people in it, forty-one would have attempted suicide at some point in their life. Research lists some of the contributing factors that lead to attempted suicide as discrimination, bullying, harassment, feelings of isolation, and the disapproval of family and friends. Do you know what you’re doing when you tell people their gender identity is invalid because it doesn’t meet your pre-set criteria? You are, however unintentionally, siding with the people that contribute to these stress factors. And yes, it is entirely possible to experience oppression while simultaneously being the oppressor in this situation; you can be harassed for being trans and still be contributing to the harassment of another transgender person.
If someone says they are trans, take them seriously. You do not have the right to make that call for them, no more than others have the right to make that call for you. Your experiences as trans do not invalidate another experience as trans just because it doesn’t meet your idea of what being trans means. By continuing to perpetuate the idea that gender identity is dependent upon a specific means of gender expression, you are in fact continuing the very social model that continues to make your life as a trans person difficult at best, and deadly at worst. So stop it.
