This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
misogyny aside, facts “save the boobies”-type campaigns overlook:
- mastectomies are necessary sometimes
- people without “boobies” can get breast cancer
also not all women have breasts and not everyone who has breasts is a woman
Lots of other folks have been saying this but I figured I’d add some visuals. This one’s in honor of all the aromantic non-ace-spectrum folks.
(Image 1: A circle labeled “asexual spectrum,” containing a smaller circle labeled “aromanticism.” The image is captioned “No.”
Image 2: A circle labeled “asexual spectrum,” overlapping with a different circle, labeled “aromantic spectrum.” The area of overlap is labeled “aro aces.” The image is captioned “Yes.”)
I saw this post by bi-privilege and I whole-heartedly agree with the notion that this is a preferable term or at least a good alternative to the LGTBQIAP+ acronym.
No more people complaining about “how many letters are we gonna add”,
no more groups getting forgotten because someone is too lazy to type out the entire acronym,
and to me it has a more inclusive and equal feeling for all included groups.
Plus, as punkrockluna pointed out, MOGAI could also be used as an adjective replacing the word “queer”.
Queer is being used by a lot of people within the community but we should not forget that it is also a slur and not everyone is comfortable with being labeled or even labeling themselves as such.
I would absolutely love it if we could make this a thing.
(I really really hope I didn’t forget anyone in the little description, please tell me if I have)
Re signal boosting
I like this!
I’m glad this is going around! I’ve seen MOGAI used before but didn’t know what it meant. This clears things up nicely!
This is extremely helpful
I’m ok w other ppl using this but please don’t use it to refer to me. like in any way.
