Nerd is my Gender

Woke up with some serious bed-head.  Decided I should rock it like this all day.

“Now from a transsexual perspective, such claims that we reinforce or uphold the gender system seem rather odd. For one thing, I didn’t transition in order to better fit into the gender system - as a bisexual femme-tomboy transsexual woman, I am still regularly viewed as gender-non-conforming. For me, transitioning wasn’t about conforming to society, but about self-actualization, about becoming the person I know myself to be. In fact, I would argue that changing one’s sex is generally viewed by most people to be the most extreme act of gender non-conformity that one could possibly engage in. When I had come out as transsexual to straight mainstream folks, I have never once had someone say, “Thank you Julia for reinforcing our gender binary! You’re such an outstanding gendered citizen, thank you for being you!” In fact, quite the opposite happens: People often become bothered, or confused, or disturbed. So the notion that my gender somehow reinforces the gender system does not have any bearing on my everyday life.”

If I know I’m going to be eating at a restaurant later, I’ll pick out what I want to eat from their online menu, so I don’t have to make a decision on the spot. #ADHDcopingmechanism

Anonymous asked: genderqueer people have always had a place in lesbianism, i'm sorry what? since when?

theheathermcnamara:

Since butch. Since “bois.” Since studs. Since all kinds of things. Lesbianism was not invented in the year 2000.

Yes, unless you’re bi, in which case you might as well be bigfoot for all you’re recognized to actually exist within lesbian “community”.

“The only way that trans folks are going to be safe in prisons is for incarceration of people to end. The only way that trans folks are going to be safe in prisons is for us to fight against these laws that criminalize things like drugs, sex work, poverty. People of color and trans folks are finding clear pathways to prison because of laws like that and that’s where we need to put our focus here.”

A lot of people think that feminists don’t believe comedians should cover controversial topics. Not true. What we believe is that they should not be reinforcing harmful beliefs. It’s not that fucking hard. Instead of reinforcing rape culture, these people are cutting through the bullshit to take it down and unveil how fucked up it is.

I am going to call his song “no means yes” from now on.

'Q.U.E.E.N.’ definitely is an acronym,' Monae explains during an interview at Fuse HQ. 'It’s for those who are marginalized.' She says the 'Q' represents the queer community, the 'U' for the untouchables, the 'E' for emigrants, the second 'E' for the excommunicated and the “N” for those labeled as negroid.

'It’s for everyone who’s felt ostracized,' she adds. 'I wanted to create something for people who feel like they want to give up because they’re not accepted by society.'

Jeff Benjamin, on Janelle Monae

Quote is from the post: Janelle Monae Says “Q.U.E.E.N.” Is For The “Ostracized & Marginalized” on Fuse TV. I cannot express enough how much I adore this song and her!

How to tell a non-sports fan:

Ben: I don't feel like I should be wearing this Kansas City Chiefs hat anymore. It seems like it might offend somebody.

Andy: Well... I honestly don't think it's that offensive, but of course you shouldn't wear things you're not comfortable with- hey wait, did you just throw it in the trash?

Ben: um... yeah.

Andy: wow.

Ben: Well isn't it Native American appropriation?

Andy: Oh you mean *Indian* chiefs! I thought you were worried about offending people in St Louis by supporting a team from Kansas City!
