When someone who presents as one gender is not allowed to joke (in a harmless way) about the idea of them being not that gender - I don’t like that. I don’t like that at all.
Joking about identity is pretty often the first step to actually exploring your identity and the idea that you might not be what you thought you were. Jokes about being a different gender or sexuality can be the gateway to realizing that the jokes aren’t actually jokes. They aren’t always, of course - sometimes people joke about that in a harmful way, and sometimes people joke about it but still end up being what they originally thought they were. But joking about the idea normalizes the idea.
To be clear, I’m not truthing here. I believe Tommy when he says he’s a cis straight dude. It’s more the fact that - well, honestly, Twitter’s response to his jokes stinks of TERFiness.
There are gonna be closeted (or unknowing) trans girls who see that and learn that they’re not allowed to explore their identity because identity is Serious Business, and you’re only allowed to have fun with your identity if you already know what it is. And they’re going to take the part of them that wants to make those jokes because it just makes them happy, and they’re going to squash it down and step on it, and it’s going to take them a lot longer to realize who they really are.
Gender is fun. Sexuality is fun. Both of them are fluid and individual things! You’re allowed to have as much fun with them as you want!! Everyone is allowed to have fun with their own gender, and that includes people at every stage of the questioning process, including people who currently identify as cis. Twitter is on some TERF shit and I will not abide it. Their response to Tommy’s jokes is exponentially more harmful to queer people than the jokes themselves.

no but like people’s lists of irredeemable media on here won’t be like. actual media where bigotry or pedophilia or something else gross is the MAIN FOCUS. its always like “dni if you support irredeemable media (a cartoon made for children, superhero movies for manchildren, a minecraft roleplay, fucking Homestuck, whatever shitty anime is popular right now)” and everyone will just be like. this is so true fuck those things! and it’s so stupid

I want to give a massive FUCK YOU to all the people that harrased and sent death threats to Hbomb on Mcc14 and called him a cheater when he exploited a glitch that has always been there and has been exploited by other players long before this mcc.
Now that your favorite streamer used the same exploit, its all cheers and calling him cracked at the game?
Yeah, genuinely, i fucking hate you, and ur fuckass double standards, go fuck yourself.

Y'all really need to stop acting like nonbinary is a magical third gender that gay men and lesbians cannot be attracted to without switching their sexuality label
There are nonbinary gays, there are nonbinary lesbians, saying those sexualities immediately exclude nonbinary ppl is to spit in the face of the nonbinary members of those communities

you don’t see selena gomez talking about the shittiness of north korea and it’s autocratic government. you don’t see bts speaking on the issues palestinians are facing right now. you don’t see harry styles talking about income inequality in the united states.
so why are these fucking minecraft youtubers expected to know absolutely everything about every possible problem going on in the world right now as well as being expected to speak on it whenever people bring it up.
half of these people are fucking teenagers who wanted to make content on the internet because it interested them. they aren’t activists. they didn’t sign up to be activists. stop treating them like one.
they are content creators existing to provide content. entertainment. if they want to use their platform that they built to speak on issues that they’re passionate about? great! amazing! but this entire belief that if they don’t speak on something or aren’t educated on a problem means they’re racist or homophobic or transphobic or literally anything else is such a dangerous mindset to have.
content creators are not activists. they don’t owe you anything. it’s great if they feel they are responsible and educated enough to speak on these issues and help people, but expecting them to do anything other than what they’re signed up for, which is creating content for entertainment is a fools dream that shouldn’t be indulged.
you don’t see older fandoms asking their ccs to say “can you please say gay rights?” or asking for their opinion on racial issues.
BECAUSE IT’S NOT THEIR FUCKING JOB
of course fucking gay rights. of course racial issues are valid and should be talked about. BUT THEY’RE PLAYING A VIDEO GAME ABOUT FUCKING BLOCKS.
TALK TO AN ACTIVIST IF YOU WANT AN INFORMED OPINION. THAT’S THEIR JOB. NOT A MINECRAFT YOUTUBER. NOT ANY YOUTUBER UNLESS THEY HAVE ALREADY EXPLICITLY SAID THEY BELIEVE THEMSELVES MATURE ENOUGH TO TALK ABOUT IT.
i am sick and fucking tired of everyone using twitter as a way to educate people. twitter threads are not reliable sources of information. you know what are?
ted talks
websites formatted specifically by activists
organization pages without fucking character limits
stop expecting content creators to know everything. they don’t. they never will. they’ll mess up. they’ll make mistakes. that doesn’t make them fucking racist.
mcyttwt is a fucking joke and i hope that app burns

If your digestive tract doesn’t look like this:
Tumblr media
Or like this
Tumblr media
You might not be an herbivore.
If your teeth don’t look like this
Tumblr media
Or this
Tumblr media
Or even these
Tumblr media
You might not be a herbivore.
Humans are omnivores. We possess intestines that are in between the average carnivore and herbivore to help us digest some meats and some plants. Our teeth follow the body plan of a carnivore but with molars that resemble that of an herbivore.
Humans are omnivores by design. Stop trying to pressure people into taking on an unnatural diet.
If you can live off plants and fungi alone, that’s great! I’m happy for you if you choose to live that lifestyle! But this whole business of sneering at people for choosing to eat meat or eggs is frankly both childish and privileged.
If your friends sneered and gagged every time you ate quinoa or drank soy milk or showed you graphic videos of rainforest decimation and enslaved workers being beaten and dying in the fields, it wouldn’t make you change your diet and suddenly eat meat exclusively.
So stop doing the same to the people around you who aren’t vegan.

hey did any of these people ever stop to think of the lesbians who like the jokes? who see comfort in them? because let me tell you something
the fact that tommy, a teenage boy, sees lesbianism as something cool and not as something sexual is such a breath of fresh air. the fact that he doesn't say lesbian with disgust, the fact that he talks about homophobia, the fact that he cares about us without sexualizing us is such a comforting thing for so many lesbians, including myself. lesbians are rarely talked about in a good way, and the fact that tommy talks about us so frequently is such a good thing.

that "jack manifold is the best ally because he's not afraid of gay people" post hits different after ranboo got cancelled because he mentioned the joke that Fans made about him dressing like a lesbian, and tommy getting cancelled because he said he understands lesbians (because he also likes women you see), and finding out that the "was hitler a lesbian?" joke technoblade has been cancelled for a solid 4 months in a row for was in response to a skull thought to be hitler's turning out to be a woman's, and tubbo getting cancelled for accidentally writing "happy ptide," and techno getting cancelled again for helping to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the trevor project without apologizing to twitter first, and dream getting cancelled for donating 140k to that same charity, and-
maybe cc's would be less afraid of talking about gay people if people didn't act like That

a thread from Ana Mardoll on how the concept of "consent" has been misused to harm queer people (and in ways that can harm other vulnerable people!)
however, note that the 'hypothetical' spousal consent laws mentioned already exist in places like the UK. these dangers are real and they are here

okay so i’ve cropped out this persons name because i don’t want people to just go and be rude, but this take sits weird with me. no matter what country you’re from, 26000 dollars is a lot of money and it’s incredibly privileged to look at that and say it doesn’t matter; i can almost fully assure you that a young lgbtqia+ person in crisis isn’t going to ask if technoblade’s donation to the trevor project made their call for help possible, i think they’re just going to be thankful that someone will listen to them and help them in their time of need. this account later goes on to call techno’s donation “performative” which i don’t even want to try and unpack, but no matter what you thought about techno’s tweet and whatever you think about techno in general, surely it’s indubitable that 26000 dollars from him and roughly 100000 dollars from his fans and supporters is going to do so much good and has the power to genuinely save thousands of young lgbtqia lives, is this not the “actions over words” mentality that is so sought after?

I was going to post a very, long thing about why the "Don't trend MCC because of what's happening with Derek Chauvin" is actually bad, but the I got fed up at half of the post because I know that no matter how much or what I write people will not change their minds, so yeah, a tl;dr
MCC is a charity event, we've reached 21.000 USD for the Trevor Project and the EVENT HASN'T EVEN STARTED YET. It's not a normal game, it's not a normal tournament, it's not dsmp or anything else related only to twitch or youtube. It's MONEY FOR A LGBT+ ASSOCIATION, FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION, IT'S C H A R I T Y.
There is literally NOTHING that we could do against black people by trending a CHARITY EVENT FOR THE LGBT+ COMMUNITY. This is because 1) Twitter doesn't trend only one thing at the time, it doesn't work like that 2) The event is only today, and we can all (and should!) tweet our rage against that fucking idiotic sentence (only 22 years?????) today, tomorrow, monday, and every single day until we are heard
Saying that by trending a LGBT+ charity event we're going against black people is actually an illusory competition against minorities which are, once again, being pitted against one other. If you go right now on Twitter, you can see other things trending in USA and the rest of the world - dear god, a Vocaloid trended. But people are asking that a charity event should be moved instead of, like, being HAPPY that money are going TOWARDS THE LGBT+ COMMUNITY.
Don't ask people to stop trending a charity event, ask people to START TRENDING AGAINST THE SENTENCE MORE

some people need to understand that mcc was originally started by scott smajor and tiffy ihascupquake just as a way to play minecraft and have some fun with their friends. nobody planned or expected mcc would become such a big and popular event! but some people need to remember that mcc was started as a for fun event and it is still a for fun event
that’s why scott’s close friends always have a guaranteed spot in mcc if they want to play. that’s why a person’s viewer/follower/subscriber count doesn’t matter in whether they get into mcc or not. that’s why scott takes so much care into balancing every team’s skills and making sure every player has good chemistry with their teammates
having fun playing minecraft with friends has been and will always be the entire point of mcc and it sucks so damn much to see some people (viewers and players alike) forget that and act in ways that make mcc not the fun and enjoyable event it was always meant to be
