Anonymous said: whenever i read your text posts it reminds me how glad i am that i follow you, but also that i'm kinda sad that i'll never meet you in real life because you seem like the sort of person i'd love to get to know. but probably also have an awkward crush on, so perhaps not meeting you is for the best.

honestly I really think I’m only appealing to anyone on the internet because of the inherent unattainability. people don’t exactly stay interested in me for more than a month or two once they really know me.

but thanks this is very kind

in reality though bacon tastes really good if you’re the kind of person who enjoys eating tablespoons of salt and lard mixed together

meistens:

people react positively to almost everything I post and still I do not have the legion of followers promised to me by the internet gods. the key, I think, is to be controversial. fuck bacon. that stuff is the worst food in the world.

someone just unfollowed me. I have reached the pinnacle of controversy. things are looking up

Anonymous said: would you consider yourself a feminist?

I never responded to this, sorry

I definitely am in the sense that I believe in and desire true gender equality (and I mean absolutely all genders, not just the cisgender binary) and that I will actively call people out on sexist bullshit as I see it

that said, I’m an able-bodied straight cisgender middle class white male and am therefore a member of the second most privileged group in the entire world (replace middle class with upper class and you’ve got #1). I have exactly zero experience of oppression in any way whatsoever. I can’t ever know firsthand what oppression based on gender, race, class, etc. feels like.

my bandmate rowan pointed out that in our society, we’re still at a point where men who are feminists are lauded for their opinions, despite the fact that women share their views and are not treated in anywhere near the same way for holding them. I try to avoid actually vocally labelling myself as a feminist at the risk of society deciding to spotlight my views rather than proudly spotlighting the countless women who hold the same views and who fight for them every day, because I think it’s fucking time that men stopped trying to speak for women.

but yes, long story short, I would definitely say I’m a feminist, but I’d rather just do my part than be that guy who talks about doing his part.
