Quick PSA: “Fuckboy” is actually a homophobic slur. Just so you know what you’re actually saying.

in america maybe, over here it’s just any dude acting like a dick

That’s what it’s become, sure, but it doesn’t really change the fact that it’s basically the same as calling someone lame by saying they’re a fag. That’s where the term originated from, insulting a guy by saying he’s a bottom.

Anyway, I done seen people mad about this term being taken by white people and made into a skeleton meme and it’s like… Really?

obv urban dictionary isn’t perfect but this is the first result on google

fuck boy

A person who is a weak ass pussy
that ain’t bout shit.”
dunno if that’s a valid point or not to be totally honest

Yea, but if you look a few down, or if you go to the “fuckboy” entry, there’s a lot of definitions that revolve around how a fuckboy is someone who gets raped in prison, and other things like that.  It’s a lot like butthurt in that it’s a way to call someone a faggot without calling them a faggot, nahmean?

My point is that regardless of how it’s used currently, the term originated as a homophobic one.  Additionally, the people who are concerned with social justice so closely that take offense to AAVE being appropriated by people outside that community are totally and blatantly ignoring the very fact that the term originated as a problematic one and alienates gay people and the insult relies on the assumption that 1: gayness is bad, 2: being the receiving partner is bad„ and 3: being raped (in prison or otherwise) as a man is your fault.

That it’s tumblr’s term du jour is just fucking icing on the cake, there’s layers to this shit, son.

liartownusa:

LiartownUSA has always celebrated ONLINE SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS. Now, spurred by popular demand and a deep desire to properly honor the internet’s bravest, most productive heroes, I am very pleased to announce the very first LiarTown item to consensually enter the physical world.

First appearing in a December 2013 post and honored by rave reviews from Jezebel.com (“The absolute best cat calendar!”) this now-100% real publication is officially available for sale. 

This full-color, 12” x 12” grid-style wall calendar is presented and shipped in plenty of time for the holidays. Each month features a charming kitten professionally photographed in a heroic pose appropriate to a small cat defiantly speaking out on the hottest social justice issues of the day. A sassy, uncompromising declaration erases any doubts about each precious cat’s passionate convictions, sense of humor, and tough-as-nails attitude! 

Each of these twelve adorable kittens was subject to a week-long, grueling interview process to ensure there was absolutely nothing problematic in its beliefs. Unlike bland, privileged garbage kittens chosen for nothing more than shallow good looks, Social Justice Kittens radiate fierce strength in the face of untold adversity, and all are gifted with a dazzling array of genders and orientations to go with their tiny, oh-so-kissable faces! The patriarchy WILL NEVER accept these kittens! 

After thousands of years of CIS-HET BULLSHIT, here at last is a calendar that DARES YOU to speak truth to power. A calendar which boldly announces to the world that you aren’t going to sit back and let others speak for you. A calendar that holds you up high so others can see you’re able to stand proudly on your own!

It comes down to this: Do you want to financially support the ideals embodied by this unique, functional gift, or refuse to purchase a copy and become a hateful fake ally who actively embraces injustice and the murder of innocents? The choice is yours.

One more time, to be clear: This is a genuine 2015 calendar, printed on big machines and then mailed out by mid-November.

Last but not least, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported this project during its formation!

don’t say you’re a writer if you just write fanfiction for your entertainment. you’re only a writer if you kill a bear with a typewriter to appease the spirit of hemingway and slather yourself in ink in tribute to shakespeare, the one true over-penis of literature.

u wanna go brah

hemingway wouldn’t bless these people with his piss if they were on fire
