please unfollow this blog and re-follow "vastderp"
the derp is vast. long vast the derp!

this blog is now closed.

even if you were following me by the name vastderp before the Event, you will have to unfollow this account, and re-follow vastderp.tumblr.com, because it is a separate account and followers will not carry over.

to those of you who don’t make the transition: thanks for several years of hilarity, migraines and porn <3

testing to see if my account has been unblocked!

edit: nope. still broken. after so many months, think i might have to just give up.

everyone who sees this and still wants to read my talk-vomit should unfollow this account and follow “vastderp”. it’s a different account but i changed the names around.

changed my blog handle from that-darned-sock to make it more obvious that this is my old account

it’s been months D:

this account is still disabled due to a tumblr bug, so i am still over at the new vastderp.tumblr.com.

[As some of you may have noticed, I’ve switched to another blog and changed around the username and layout to make it clear which one I am currently using. This is  due to a fairly nasty Tumblr bug has disabled most of my account’s features—I can’t post on tags, send asks, reply privately to some asks, and when I reblog, reply or like a post, it’s eaten or appears only on my blog, generating no notifications for the other person. Other people’s reblogs and replies, meanwhile, often don’t show up for me on my dash.

Tumblr has been notified and they say the bug may not be fixed for some time. I will put everything back to normal as soon as this is fixed. This account will exist solely to hang on to my archives until that time.

Later skaters!]

quick update: my account is still broken as of today (4/22/14) and I remain active at the new  vastderp.tumblr.com

Why indeed? Here are ten possible reasons. I’ll leave figuring out which one is correct as an exercise for the reader:
1. Because i am not and will never be a victim. I found out when i was very young that blind pacifism is feel-good nonsense. Step up or get stepped on.
2. Because “just ignoring” bullies is the favorite advice of victim blamers the world over, people whose goal is not to stop the bullying, but to keep the fuss down at any cost. People who are perfectly willing to push that cost onto the victim, who has already been proven to be a pushover who won’t make a stink about being bullied and then blamed for it. Was that wagging finger ever aimed at the people who told me to commit suicide?
3. Because there is nothing wrong with confronting people who hurt you.
4. Because victims shouldn’t be manipulated into thinking of permitting abuse in terms of “being the bigger person”. It’s not, and that’s disgusting.
5. Because a lot of people who respect me have thanked me for always standing up to bullies and for never backing down, and i value that about myself.
6. Because i have no duty to pretend i don’t see a viral post and recognize the op as someone who has attempted to bully me, and i am not under a gag order about it. I do not participate in Tumblr Peekaboo, where you have to pretend not to notice people until a certain set of circumstances make them visible. I am much happier pointing and laughing, thanks!
7. Because if i acted in the right way to make a bully somehow magically decide to leave me alone, the bully would then go after someone more vulnerable instead. Given the choice, I’d much rather they wasted their time and effort on me.
8. Because it’s not an act of kindness, respect or compassion to allow someone to be abusive and say nothing against them.
9. Because behind every anon concern trolling about how i prefer to entertain my unwanted guests, there is a person pretending really hard to not be aware of the sort of damage bullies can cause if they’re allowed to run wild.
10. This space has been left blank, because i don’t actually need a reason to fight back when i am attacked. You could save a lot of time by asking yourself instead why you don’t just ignore me. 

ok look, i know this is a devalued cliche, but goddamn if i didn’t just hear a fuckin mic hit the floor.

This is probably a silly question, but what does "truscum" even mean? I keep seeing the word pop up, especially in your and your friends' encounters with the loonier fringes of Tumblr social justice, and I still can't make heads or tails of what it's supposed to be in the first place. Thanks, and sorry if this is a dumb question!

i don’t even fucking know anymore, at first i thought it meant transpeople who believe you need dysphoria to be transgendered (which on its simplest level seems kind of like a no-brainer to me, who would voluntarily endure what happens to us if they didn’t feel transgendered?), but every single person who i’ve seen use the term in conversation has either been a tremendous douche against people who don’t identify strictly within the male/female binary, or a trash heather who wants fae/flutterself pronouns and believes there’s no such thing as gender at all, for anybody, and that you should continue to live and dress as female but call yourself nonbinary just to make a point, or you’re “transphobic.”

so what i decided is, regardless of what it means, the term is a honeypot for douchebags, like the whole cutey patootie cishate meme.
