“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS 
LIKE GOOD LORD 
OLDEST FANDOMS REALLY ARE POLITEST

Saying that gender is performance elevates traditional victim blaming strategies into a sociological philosophy. If the status ‘woman’ is earned through presentation, behavior, and self-identification, then all the violence women receive for being women is easily depoliticised and cast as their fault; after all, look what she’s wearing.

If gender was ‘performance’, then there would be a way to perform that didn’t result in rape for women. But men rape feminine women. Men rape butch women. Men rape traditional housewives. Men rape teenage crustpunks. Men rape every type of woman. There is no way for a woman to be that doesn’t risk rape. There is no way to perform that lets women escape the confines of gender because gender is not performance; it’s the designator of who can rape and who can be raped, who hurts and who is hurt. Performance has nothing to do with it.

— 

Huff Yupp

Judith Butler said gender is performance. In drag, it is - but that’s only one shallow aspect, and just shows male privilege since they (gay men) are able to quit doing it; women still get pressured into femininity.

What if the performance is not voluntary, if women are pressured to trade in authenticity for “femininity”? Then they are punished for playing their role either too well or not well enough.” - Cat

People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???

that was the point???

like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???

It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?

You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote
