It’s good to know that we weren’t the only ones driven crazy by people who “axe” questions.
Okay, see, we talked about this linguisitic phenomenon in my grammar class. I don’t remember what it’s called, but it happens with other words, too - my professor used an example of “uncomfortable.” When you say it out loud, most likely, it sounds more like “un-comf-ter-ble,” thus mixing up the position of the r and the t, like how the k and the s are mixed in this speech pattern. However, not many people are out here acting high and mighty because someone said “uncomfterble” like they are with “ax,” and that has absolutely everything to do with academic biases - because “ax” is associated mostly with Black people (and occasionally lower-class whites), it’s viewed as “improper” speech, whereas most people, even middle & upper class white people who are thought to speak the most ~proper~ version of English, say “uncomfterble.”
tl;dr actually caring about whether someone says “ask” ~”correctly”~~ is rooted in racist & classist biases of language so, consider, not.
Most linguistic pedantry is inherently racist in nature.
This is called metathesis and is a widespread phonetic occurrence across just about every language. Eg:
- Latin miraculum > Spanish milagro
- Old English thrid > Modern English third
Well documented in Hebrew, Greek, French, Finnish, Turkish, Arabic, Navajo, Japanese, Telugu… and just about everything else.

go figure that trans men would feel “safer” at a women’s college, any man would feel safe in a space where he has violent coercive power over every single person there
if you’re not attracted to the same gender, stop thinking you know more about homophobia than people who are or that you have a get-out-of-homophobia-free card just because you’re asexual or poly or whatever, it’s both untrue and offensive
to clarify (because people in the notes clearly can’t read), HETEROROMANTIC ASEXUALS know nothing about homophobia.
asexuals that are attracted to the same gender do understand homophobia
I apologize in advance for jumping in without knowing the context this was made in but I disagree that knowledge of homophobia is something to be drawn along strictly identity lines - homophobic violence affects people and communities regardless of identity, real or perceived, and is oftentimes connected to ideologies of gender conformity (!!!) and norms surrounding sexual practice. It’s not uncommon for heterosexuals to become targets of homophobia because of their gender expression, and I wouldn’t be surprised if an asexual person was mistaken to be gay by the fact alone that they don’t show interest in sex (it’s a pretty common assumption) wherein the homophobia follows suit.
Idk, identity labels are not the best tools to understanding somebody’s personal experience, I think context and empathy go a long way.
I do agree with the get-out-of-homophobia free card comment though - I’m sorry if you’d had to deal with people who felt exempt from that because that’s also super shitty. :/
okay but someone who isn’t gay/lesbian/bi/pan experiences homophobia in a completely different way. being mistaken for gay is nothing like living your life as someone marginalized by homophobia. having other str8 girls in jr high make fun of your pixie cut or w/e says nothing about your ability to understand living as a lesbian.
living as a lesbian isn’t an offhand comment, it’s growing up feeling disgusting and perverted, internalizing EVERY homophobic comment you hear your entire life whether or not it’s aimed at you (because really, it is), it’s knowing as i know that my extended inlaws will never get to know who i am to my gf and in turn the same for her with mine, it’s using gender neutral pronouns around strangers, it’s being scared to even mention my gf at work, it’s hearing straight women talk about dykes and being mistaken for lesbians like we’re dirt, it’s being terrified to come out to your parents, and it goes on and on and on for the rest of your life.
because when straight people experience homophobia it’s still us who’s being insulted, not them.
