I do not want to hear about how ugly you think a billionaire is.
I hate billionaires too, but I’m never going to wanna hear that someone we both hate is ugly. Never.
The ‘beauty is good, ugly is bad’ thing is always always absolutely terrible.
It feeds the idea that our self-worth is connected to what we look like and no amount of ‘body positivity’ is worth shit if we continue to pull this crap just because we wanna joke about someone we hate.
& Same goes for ‘small penis vs. big dick energy’ and every other joke we make that connects our quality as people to our bodies.
You want to permanently free people from the pressure to look a certain way?
Stop assigning value to beauty full stop. Stop calling people you hate ugly. Stop making jokes about the bodies of people you dislike.
@queeranarchism I'm glad I wasn't the only one who found the big dick energy very dodgy... It also seems kinda sexist and rude to trans people to me? Associating confidence and "goodness" with big dicks is a pretty status quo thing to do. Many trans guys will have "small dicks" after metoidioplasty or just HRT and the amount of "big dick good" and "small dick haha funny" that you see every day is something shitty that many trans guys will have to deal with.
To be honest I am not sure how 'don't joke about billionaire dick sizes' helps with not being reminded of the existence of dicks.
I mean, there will still be mentions of the existence of genitals in our vocabulary. Hopefully primarily positive mentions of the existence of genitals.
