CANADA JUST LIKE FULL GAY
I’m gonna be lazy and copy and paste some stuff from a presentation I’ve already given:
Nearly half of all bisexual women [46%] will be raped in their lifetime, compared to 13% of lesbians and 17% of straight women. This is horrifying, and it comes from the hypersexualization of bisexuality, to the point where simply being bi is seen as an invitation for sexual advances. It also comes from “rape culture,” the social attitudes that tolerate and promote rape and then victim blame women who are seen as overly sexual.
Over 40% of bisexual people have considered suicide compared to 9% of straight people and 27% of gay people, and these rates are much higher for bisexual women than for bisexual men. This is also very alarming and speaks to the power of biphobia and also the harm of gay communities failing to extend their support to bisexual people.
28% of bisexual people are in poverty compared to 18% of straight people and 22% of gay people. While gay people earn 2-3% less than straight men, bisexuals earn 10-15% less. Bisexuals also have higher rates of hypertension, poor physical health, smoking, and risky drinking. Many if not most bisexuals don’t come out to their healthcare providers, which limits their access to complete information and resources, for example, regarding safer sex practices.
Bisexual women in a relationship with a monosexual are much more likely than a straight or lesbian woman to experience domestic violence, whether they are in a relationship with a straight man or a lesbian woman. Compared to lesbians, bisexual women have significantly lower levels of education and higher rates of poverty, are significantly less likely to have health insurance coverage and more likely to experience financial barriers to receiving healthcare.
So pretty much that’s bullshit and sorry bout it but lesbians have monosexual privilege over bisexuals. I know gay men and lesbians get really angry being told that and some bisexuals even shirk away from the word, but too bad, because there’s no other way besides “monosexism” to explain the evidence of institutional oppression of non-monosexuals. And if you have a system of oppression you have a privileged group. (psst just like white privilege or cis privilege it doesn’t make a monosexual evil, just privileged, nor does it mean monosexuals are on the same level as heterosexuals because, you know, intersectionality is a thing)
Passing privilege is not privilege, and plenty of lesbians can pass as straight too. That’s because everyone is assumed to be heterosexual. Only heterosexuals can access heterosexual privilege, because privilege is so much bigger than how a random person on the street perceives you. I can have a public relationship with a guy. So what? Does that change the fact that I’m way more likely to be raped, consider suicide, be in poverty, or be abused by a partner? No. If a closeted lesbian doesn’t have straight privilege then neither do bisexuals. Having my identity erased because people perceive me as something I’m not isn’t privilege, it’s monosexism.

The Story Behind the asdfmovie Songs
Aside from being a fun way to dip into the back stories of the more popular characters from my asdfmovie series, the song are, in all honesty, advertisements.
Back in 2011 I was frantically fighting to get out of a shitty contract I’d signed with Hot Topic. Essentially I’d asked them if they wanted to sell my stuff in stores and after working together to create some awesome designs this is what they put in stores. Please note that this was the reference material I sent them. Are you fucking kidding me?
The shirts were obviously a huge flop (pun intended) and didn’t sell at all. I made £300. £300 from Hot fucking Topic. I had to fight quite aggressively to get myself out of that contract and by the time I succeeded we were 4 asdfmovies in and I had zero merchandise. I was absolutely broke after spending all my savings on paying off my student loans. I needed money or I wasn’t going to be able to move to London and keep up this whole YouTube thing.
Luckily I was introduced to Brandon, a nifty straight-talking dude who said he could set me up a store on SharkRobot.com and help design my shirts. Within a couple days we had a store full of designs but… No way to tell the people that it existed! With the hype of asdfmovie4 winding down I knew we needed to act fast to get the word out. The fans were upset that the I Like Trains kid hadn’t made an appearance so… We gave ‘em what they wanted!
I had only recently begun working with Todd ‘LilDeuceDeuce' Bryanton, my composer, and we agreed that if co-wrote and produced a song for my channel for free he could release it on iTunes and keep all the revenue it generated. This quickly became the basis of our entire professional relationship.
I approached Joshua ‘Zeurel' Palmer with the song and, as he always did, very quickly produced the perfect animatic (animated storyboard) set to the song. The full animation was completed only a handful of days later. Damn he's good.
With everything ready, the video went live and bam, people were buying shirts, downloading Todd’s music and subscribing to Josh’s channel. Everybody won! … Except your wallets. At least you weren’t naked anymore though!
Since then we’ve honoured the most popular asdf characters with their own songs to raise awareness of the store and thank Todd for all of his wonderful music. Thank you, Todd!
Also it’s worth noting that Ben ‘Wonchop' Smallman has pretty much exclusively taken over the role of asdf-animator having animated asdfmovie4, asdfmovie6, asdfmovie7, asdfmovie: deleted scenes, Mine Turtle and now Everybody Do The Flop. He’s a bit of a hero.
In short, all hail to Todd and Ben! Also Brandon. Also Josh.
Buy a shirt <3
Apologies in advance for any spelling errors, I’ll fix stuff in the morning…too tired now…
oh hey it’s a tutorial on glowing stuff I guess…I already made one 2 years ago but I don’t make things glow like that any more :|
…also when I’m manually doing colours I pick things like this as if I was shading.
there’s a lot more I could put in as well, but it really varies on the picture how I do the glow…it is usually just fiddling around with styles and colours though.

I know this is the second post I’ve made about this, but I think I was unclear in the first one??
I am selling these as iron-ons and magnets. They iron-on to dark shirts, bags, hoodies, etc.
I am going to be experimenting this weekend with transfers that work on light colored shirts. They will be priced differently because the iron-ons are cheaper.
The iron-ons come with materials needed, and instructions.
I am also making magnets. Which, y’know. Don’t require instructions cos they just stick to things. Metal things.
At this time:
Iron-ons: $10 no shipping in US
Magnets: $6 no shipping in US
Contact me for shipping outside of US.
My e-mail for inquiries and my paypal email address is spastasmagoria @ gmail.com
Money goes toward the Get Tammy to 221B Fund.
I did a mailing on Monday and will probably do another this coming Monday, so lemme know :)
