"So, you’re probably a girl, right? Wrong? No, I was right the first time. …wrong?"
-Gravity Falls Season 2 Episode 5.
The scene takes place at the entrance of a Hot Topic-esque clothing store in a mall. Soos (the character on the left) enters, says the line, and we cut to the next scene. The character on the right doesn’t say or do anything.
I’m really disappointed and frustrated. This is not acceptable, this content is harmful towards trans people.
Being gendered by strangers is a daily trial for me and many trans people. I don’t appreciate making a joke out of such a situation. We have almost no media representation or agency so when you make jokes like this, it speaks over us. Even in this scene, the character on the right doesn’t get to say or do anything, they just get to stand there and be the butt of an incredibly disrespectful joke.
I was taken aback when this scene happened because I didn’t expect the writers of Gravity Falls to stoop so low.
Not the first time they’ve made jokes at trans people’s expense tbh
Upon cleaning out the darkest depths of my grandmother’s fridge, I discovered food that is older than me. This expired in February… 1987. This can saw Reaganomics. This can saw The Challenger explode. It saw the fall of the Soviet Union. It was around when Tupac got shot. Both times. This can is older than The Simpsons. #bruh

TUESDAY AGAIN NO PROBLEM
take me to the museum and tell me i’m prettier than any work of art there then try to pin me up on the wall with the other paintings as security guards rush to stop you
but their efforts will be in vain, as true beauty can not be contained by human hands.
an incredibly moving observation. thank you platonic-analfisting
Sending a big “FU” to the corporate side of the fashion industry.
As an increasingly successful fashion blogger, I have been targeted by several brands, large & small, one of which is quite a large corporation.
Because I am undermining a very important part of their money making system.
Today, the fashion industry is split in half.
You have Women’s fashion & Men’s fashion.
You will find designers here and there who produce androgynous designs but for the most part, the industry (brands & corporate companies) want designers who either design Men’s wear or Women’s wear, and follow a very gendered structure. Everything from the tailoring to the materials has to be specific to the binary boy/girl gender system.
This is why you can’t find feminine style’s of clothing tailored for the average males body type in any department store, thus creating a “mens” & “women’s” division.
Every time I modify the clothing I buy in department stores to fit my body type and then model it for people to see, not only am I inspiring people to step out of the box with their fashion choices, but I am merging two markets into one.
Why is this bad for corporations?
More markets equal more advertising and marketing opportunities which ultimately leads to more sales and more profit.
When I successfully inspire people to be less mindful about if they look like a girl or a boy, ultimately I am inspiring them to go against the gendered market system that brands and clothing companies make so much money off of.
I have received several hateful emails, discouraging my efforts as a fashion blogger. I was even asked by a large corporate clothing company to STOP buying their clothing and modifying it to fit my body type. They stated that by doing so, and sharing it with my audience that I was creating the illusion that gender did not exist, and that I am leading a bad example for society. …
A GENDERED SOCIETY CREATES A HUGE PROBLEM.
IT DIVIDES PEOPLE.
IT DISOLVES ANY & ALL ORIGINALITY.
FUCK YOU, to any clothing brand, company & corporation who’s got a problem with who I am, what I believe in & how I express myself.
This is just so important! Gendered clothing is such bullshit and I want more people to realize!!!
