leaving Laverne Cox off of the Time top 100 despite the overwhelming support she received is an act of violence and erasure towards trans women

vicoactus:

it’s really great how female-assigned genderqueers get to be in trans spaces AND women’s spaces AND women’s-and-trans spaces, and will usually find programming that accommodates them in all of those spaces.

but trans women are increasingly decentered and/or outright erased in trans spaces (see: PTHC workshops) and, if even allowed in at all, almost always decentered and/or erased in women’s spaces and women’s-and-trans spaces.

by ‘really great’ i actually mean ‘do you even realize how fucking much you are hurting trans women with your selfishness’

Now I feel worse for Fitzpatrick.

From the description

"This song was specifically composed to torture pianists, which I could have guessed after playing through the game. The reason is the middle part, which lacks any distinct melody, chord progression or rhythm (or maybe I just can’t see them). There’s not a single repitition in that part, which makes it a sheer test of your will to get through. Took me about a year."

"This is the 13th take”

 

Society often blurs the lines between drag queens and trans women. This is highly problematic, because many people believe that, like drag queens, trans women go home, take off their wigs and chest plates, and walk around as men. Trans womanhood is not a performance or costume. Janet Mock, Redefining Realness  (via girl-germs)

P.s. I miss you. Next time we meet, bring the cat. I promise I wont steal.

You’ve never shown interest in stealing my other cat, and he’s more accessible to you, although admittedly not as entertaining. You only want me for my cat.

Oh yes diy is not my forte.

Let’s talk about the ratio of successful surgery fundraisers for trans masculine vs trans feminine people. I personally have seen a handful of successful surgery fundraisers go thru but never even one for any amab person I am aware of. I had a donation post once and the…

Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks

Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.

No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip…

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

Tagged with: so fucking tired of larry summers and his bullshit and even more tired of that question of his being framed as a question that 'no one dares to ask' summers isn’t ‘brave’ to ask that question he’s a clueless asswipe to ask that question failing to respect the fact that the convo has been had many times before and that he could just go LOOK IT UP if he actually wanted to know but nope he’s so ‘brave’ asking the ‘unaskable’ questions ACADEMIC FREEDOM!! and in the meanwhile Neil deGrasse Tyson continues to be awesome
