MAAB, but I feel more and more feminine each day.  I just recently started wearing makeup in public, and I’m feeling pretty dapper.

Sharing because I love this look!

Anyone who says this, so ignorant…
You know who uphold the gender binary?  People who are born, raised, live, and die the same binary gender, and expect all others to do exactly the same.  They walk among us.  So lets stop making enemies out of fellow trans peeps, mmkay?

Her arms are folded over her chest and she has an incredulous expression. Top text: “You choose not to eat dairy and wheat,” Bottom text: “so you can’t complain that my choice of restaurant leaves you out.”]
My mother said this to me, after I tried to explain how frustrating it is that I really can’t eat out with them, which is usually the only time I get the chance to see her. I’m sensitive to lactose and gluten; it’s not a bloody choice! If I eat either I get psoriasis and eventually arthritis. Both of these conditions will get worse the more I eat lactose and/or dairy over my lifetime, so it’s crucial that I eat little or none of them. 
But because my mother doesn’t have to live with the effects of food sensitivity (that she’s aware of), she tells me it’s my choice. Yes, I choose to be left out, and to make restaurant choices a pain for her! [Sarcasm.] I’d love to be able to go out to a restaurant every week and eat whatever I want. 

It shouldn’t matter even if it is a choice.  If you wish to connect with someone on a personal level, you simply must be sensitive to their food choices to make them more comfortable.  Otherwise, what’s the point of going out to eat together?  If you’re doing it for the enjoyment of the food alone, go out by yourself.

[Picture: Background: 8 piece pie style color split with red and teal alternating. Foreground: White guy with glasses and light shadow wearing a sweat shirt over a button down and short black hair. Has a smug, arrogant facial expression and crossed arms. Top text: “I totally understand where you’re coming from about not having enough money.” Bottom text: “I mean, I don’t even have cable!”]
Said to my mom by a Sierra Club telemarketer phonebanker. Listen, asshole, when she says she doesn’t have enough money, she means “I do not have the money to join your elitist hipster club, because I am going into debt by buying my groceries, even though we’re on food stamps”. She does NOT mean “I won’t have the money to pay the cable bill if I join”. And when she says “I can’t afford it”, LET IT GO. Say “Okay, have a nice day!” and hang up. DON’T ask her 3 more times.

It’s not cool when people don’t understand poverty.  However, a lot of these phone workers are being monitored and have to follow certain procedures in order to keep their jobs.  They may be in a situation where it’s either work making calls or don’t have money for food.  (Seriously, would you want to be a phone worker?)  If you’re not the type who is willing to simply hang up on them, I’ve found that stating “I’m not interested” 3 times in a row will do the trick.  They don’t want to waste time with someone who isn’t interested, since they probably have a quota to fill as well.

Because you have to CHOOSE!!!//sarcasm. I mean, I personally prefer women over men, but that statement does sound a little sexuality-erasing to me :/

Top text: “Defining racism as racial privilege plus racial prejudice”   Bottom text: “will lead to people making blanket statements like ‘White people are bigots’ and ‘White people are oppressors.’ ”]
Fifth of six PDD submissions meant to represent an email I received from a white-privilege-denying dude recently.
But white people are the only ones with the racial privilege to be able to be racially oppressive. It’s not oppressive toward white people to say to a white person, “You are being racially oppressive: please stop.”
 The word “racism” has  been used that way by sociologists and antiracist activists for  decades. Oppression is privilege plus prejudice. Racial oppression is racial privilege plus racial prejudice. Using “racism” only to mean “racial oppression” is the only thing that makes sense in anti-racist activism. The disproportionately vast majority of legislators, government officials, and others in power in the U.S. are white. No racial prejudice against white people in the U.S. has oppressive power. Racial prejudice against white people is nowhere near as socially harmful as racial prejudice against people of color.

I actually had a white guy call me racist for “seeing race”, when I pointed out how rude it is for him to assume that someone with a “foreign”-sounding name can’t speak English.  He makes the prejudiced assumption.  I tell him it’s rude.  He calls me racist.  I just…

fuckyeahcutetranschicks:

This is my wife, Jamie. She discovered that she was trans about a month and a half ago, and immidiately began living as a woman both in and out of the house. For the past 24 years she had been incredibly suicidal, self hating, and depressed. In the past two months she hasn’t had a single suicidal thought, is happier, and is much more social than she ever has been. She’s now persuing HRT and SRS. I’m proud of her for having the courage to live as the gender she is comfortable in, instead of the one society gave her, especially in this very small very redneck town that we live in.

My boss made this joke to a client while standing right in front of me.  He is very wealthy, but I live paycheck-to-paycheck as I’m working my way through school.

Joking about how casually you can ruin my life isn&#8217;t cool, and it just makes me not trust you.  Not very healthy for a workplace environment, methinks.

Look, it&#8217;s the new &#8220;some of my best friends are gay&#8221;!

Her arms are crossed over her chest and she has a smug expression.Top text: “ [I HAVE A BI BOYFRIEND SO NOW I REALLY KNOW IT DOESN’T BOTHER ME!] ” Bottom text: “ [I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF FOR BEING A TRUE ALLY! I MEAN, ISN’T THIS GREAT?] ”]
There was a commenter on Jezebel a while back who basically wanted people to pat her on the back for being able to date a bi guy.  I get it that there are a lot of people who won’t date bisexuals simply because they are bisexual, but that shouldn’t be the case.  And the people who aren’t like that shouldn’t be asking for cookies for actions that, ideally, we should expect of everyone.  Plus, it was just generally gross that she was treating her boyfriend like a litmus test of her degree of allyship.

Look, it’s the new “some of my best friends are gay”!

Quote, described below.

"The only thing that anyone can diagnose, with any certainty, by looking at a fat person, is their own level of stereotype and prejudice toward fat people.”

-Marilyn Wann, “Fat Studies: An Invitation to Revolution”

Are you on crack? As irresistible as that offer may seem to you, spammer, I’m ace, so take it elsewhere. 


Wait, is anonymous a cake? I might actually want to see a naked cake. Does naked cake have facebook? *searches*OH GOD DO NOT SEARCH THAT.

Actually, it&#8217;s not all bad, even for an ace.

Go ahead and say that increasing taxes on the rich is &#8220;class warfare&#8221;.  It&#8217;s not like politics need to be reality-based or anything.

My father joined the U.S. Air Force at age 18, learned a trade, and worked hard as a mechanic for 30+ years after that. His health failed and he could not afford treatment; his diabetes became worse and he was eventually disabled (and summarily dismissed by his workplace without a second thought). We lived in a car for two years while he sought benefits, and was denied many times. My mother worked since age 13 but had a stroke 5 years ago, paralyzing one arm. She is nearly blind in one eye and prone to seizures. Their combined disability income is not enough to pay for both rent and medicine. My father suffers with diabetes, cancer, and Parkinson’s, while my mother requires meds for heart disease and seizures. She still has to work under the table cleaning rich people’s houses with one arm, just so they can eat. We are the 99%.
