Not really sure when our hiatus is going to end!

the mods of this blog are both going through a lot, not to mention school is back in for one of us.

Somehow we still have over 1K followers though! I dont think we will be posting again for another month at least though. Thanks for sticking with us.

that blog is so so so so beautiful I can't even describe it! <33

Oh that is so very kind of you to say! thank you. unfortunately we’re on a bit of a hiatus right now. All of the mods have some serious personal stuff to deal with and don’t really have the time or energy to run it. But soon enough we will be posting again.

In the mean time, feel free to submit as many posts as you want, and we will get to them. it would actually be a huge help.

<3

"Relationships are personal matters, so be considerate towards the people in them. Respect their feelings and privacy."

My own attempt at rewording the following:

“People Tip: What happens in a couple’s relationship is not your business unless they tell you themselves. Do not sabotage or shame the relationship, regardless if you approve of it or not”

Several flaws:
1) Relationships are not limited to "couples", as seen in the polyamory tip
2) "Is not your business" is rather harsh and does not capture the sense of respect as succinctly???
3) Actually...I feel like my version accidentally leaves out the " Do not sabotage or shame the relationship, regardless if you approve of it or not" portion, or rather, that is implied through my general statement.
4) If one is "considerate" and "respectful" to the people in a relationship, the issue of abuse is caught: Being "considerate" includes helping others and being supportive when they are in an abusive situation.

I'm not sure if I should put this into ask or Submit since it's more than just a submission? Eheheehehe I can do so if neccesary. I'm good with my name attatched.

Thanks

Apparently tumblr is being a dingus it will not let me post this! Hope it works this time.

First off thank you for the input and constructive criticism it is very appreciated.

Secondly we see your points and we agree. It certainly was not our best post ever and we apologize for that.

Specifically we apologize for that thoughtless erasure of poly relationships, that was our bad, we should have caught that in the submission! We are gonna delete that tip because it is a bit sub par. We certainly do not think that one should allow an abusive relationship to continue.

We hope that makes up for the shoddy modding on our part.

I personally feel that "uterus-bearer" as a term has the effect of reducing people to their reproductive organs. At the very least I prefer a term like "people with uteruses" because emphasizing that they're people and not just vessels for baby-making seems worth a little extra wordiness to me.

That's just my feelings, though. Take it as you will.

Actually thank you that is a very good term! Personally we are inclined to prefer more cut-and-dry medical type terms and we had heard uterus bearer before but we now see why people might find it dehumanizing!

People with uteri is much better thank you. We will be sure to use it in the future.

"uterus-bearers" is a really gross sexist term, and abortion is a women's issue even if it doesn't always just affects women, because misogyny is part of the reason why it's such an issue in the first place.

Actually no no it isn’t! See, many people with uteri are not actually women. Many transgender men and genderqueer people have uteri. I’d say that abortion is very much an issue that affects them. I can see why you are worried it is sexist, but really it isn’t. It is merely trans-inclusive.

Hey guys this is a post about tags

elephantsonehundred:

Okay so I’ve seen a lot of posts lately from people who have epilepsy talking about how it bothers them that #Epilepsy is the tag that people use for flashing images because it means that they can’t check the #Epilepsy tag for actual discussions of epilepsy.

Now a few people have talked about this, and a lot of us think it would be a really good idea to switch to #Epilepsy Warning because it still has the #Epilepsy part in it, so tumblr savior will still catch it if someone has #Epilepsy blocked.
