Tried to make a lucky star out of a felt strip… It kinda worked I guess.
MOGAI= Marginalized orientations, gender alignments, and intersex.
MOGII= Marginalized orientations, gender identities, and intersex
For anyone who doesnt know, they’re blanket terms referring to anyone who isn’t a dyadic cisgender, hetereosexual/romantic person. They’re much shorter than LGBTQIAP+, not a slur like “queer”, and unlike GSRM (gender sex and romantic minorites) does NOT include cishet pedophiles and kinksters.
Now i have to bring up how MOGAI is wayyyy better to use than MOGII. You see, technically cishet dyadic women are still a marginalized gender IDENTITY, however they aren’t a marginalized gender ALLIGNMENT because they allign with their assigned gender. So basically MOGAI doesnt include cishet dyadic women and MOGII does (which kinda defeats the purpose)
"But won’t invasive allies try and steal the A??"
Ahh but theres the beautiful part about MOGAI, it simply wouldnt make sense if they did!
you see in LGBTQIAP+ where every letter just stands for an orientation or gender alignment, its easy for allies to go “it stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allies!!” (I mean we wouldnt have this problem if the MOGAI community supported asexuals/aromantics over cishet allies but that’s for another time)
However in MOGAI the word ally would make no sense! Marginalized orientations, gender allies, and intersex????? See my point? That just sounds silly and makes zero sense.
So to summarize, MOGAI is a great blanket term for anyone who isnt a dyadic cishet, which isn’t a slur, isn’t too wordy, and has no room for invasive allies. So basically its a pretty great acronym to use.
There’s a little backstory here. Take a seat, grab a cup of coffee.
LGBT(QIAP)+, as you probably realize, is long, unwieldy, and often leaves marginalized peoples out. It also tends to fetishize the L, prioritize the G, criticize the B and forget the T+.
An alternative, GS(R)M was proposed. Proposed in 1966, it stood for Gender, Sexuality (and Romantic) Minorities, and it seemed like a great fit! Until people learned that it was coined by a pedophile, who also wanted to include cishet kinksters, pedophiles, and even rapists in the acronym, as well as other criticisms of the acronym itself. So that was obviously out of the question.
Then MOGII came along, but that one had some evolution. The original term was MOGA, for “Marginalized Orientation and Gender Alignments”. That was cool, but then people began to use MOGAI to include intersex folks who are often left out of important discussions (MOGA… and Intersex). Then it was pointed out that the “A” was somewhat unnecessary and allowed shitty allies a way to weasel themselves in. So, MOGII was born. MOGII stands for Marginalized Orientations, Gender Identity, and Intersex. It’s an excellent catch-all, uses no reclaimed slurs, and makes it entirely about the minorities.
Better picture of the hair here.

What is this from? I want to know the things that I do not know any more.
I reblogged your selfie.

Did you get that ‘we detected a security breach’ thing? Cuz I got that awhile ago an’ it locked me out for like 2 days cuz of some email mishaps.
Nope. I got on my computer, logged onto tumblr, and then like 30 mins later chrome crashed and I had to sign back in because my chrome is dumb and doesn’t save my passwords and logged in sessions and I couldn’t get in. I checked on firefox as well and it was definitely the password that had been changed so I googled how to fix it -shrug-.
I reset my password but I still want to know why that happened. I think someone changed my password and I would like to eviscerate whoever did it.
In the past 30 mins of being awake something has made it so I am unable to log into my tumblr on my computer. :/

OOOOOOOH MY GOD CIN THIS IS THE CUTEST AND BEST…
I’m glad you like it :3
I gotta figure out how to make the colour changing pattern on your tail but I think I have a good idea how it’ll go, so keep an eye out in the next day or two for it. I meant to ask a while ago, what kind of hair ties do you use for bundling your hair? Right now I have one of my hair ties but imma use yarn for it eventually.
Jordy and Maris’ heads, based on this pic Jordy drew (their heads are caricatures of the minecraft au headcannon we have) I have to make an eyepatch for jordybordychan and a tail for teamrtist but in general they look like they should.
I know I should really be finishing up Char’s vavgirl doll but I did have the heads already made and eyeballs were attached so I didn’t want to waste them and I figured since they’re the wrong size head (I used the wrong pattern when I wasn’t paying attention) but were intended to be Jordy and Maris anyways, I’d make the disembody head plush pillow thingers Jordy likes to draw.
The bonus is I finally figured out what to use that hook stand for :D
