Hey, you know that Vexarian guy? The one in the Homestuck fandom, with the big ol’ hateboner for John/Karkat?
Well it turns out, he’s kind of a massive transphobic doucheweasel. To the degree that even lil’ old cis me was getting a migraine from his crap.
Y’see, a little while back, he got it into his head that people cared about his thoughts on trans* people and the terms “man” and “woman”, and, well…. suffice to say that his thoughts on the matter included the phrase ‘all women have a vagina and all men have a penis’. Verbatim. Then, when several people (including me) tried to point out how that was kind of incredibly wrong of him, he dug his heels in and started arguing that if trans*people used terms that were created for and by cis people, it would ruin everything ever (slightly exaggerated), and that cis people’s right to not be confused clearly came before trans* people’s right to pick their own damn terms, since there’s more cis people than trans* ones (not exaggerated in the slightest, believe it or not). And so on and so forth. I’m not going to recap every incidence of his dickery here; it would just give me a migraine again, and you a screen fulla text. If you feel like you have the stomach to read the whole exchange, I’ll be posting screencaps later tonight.
Now, let me make something clear. This post isn’t meant to be a smear campaign. I’m not trying to make him to leave the fandom; I’m not trying to “shame” him for his horrible opinions (mostly because I know it wouldn’t work); and I’m not encouraging people to go over there and troll him (anons who were trying to one-up him on the transphobic crap, I’m looking at you.). What I’m doing is saying that, if you’re in the in the Homestuck fandom, and you’re trans*, you might want to steer clear of Vexarian. The things he says can be pretty obnoxious and triggery, and arguing with him about it goes nowhere. You’re better off avoiding him and saving yourself the headache.

I have never developed a seething hatred for anything quite as quickly as I did for this AU.
I’ve only read one blog post, but it told me literally all I needed to know about it.
I feel vaguely unclean now.
… and I thought Promstuck was retarded.
ooh sweet award ten douchebag points to both these fine people
At least I will never write a nonsensical gay Rapunzel fusion AU that needlessly demonizes Vriska.
….what the fuck kind of excuse is that?
“hey, that language you used was kinda offensive!”
“well at least i didn’t write a badfic!”
