It never fails that every day that I have off of work the weather is shit but when I have to spend the entire day inside a warehouse the weather channel is calling for “abundant sunshine.” Fuck you sunshine
I guess I’m mad because they could use this opportunity to further trans education, but they’re not. In fact by continuing to misgender etc they only perpetuating the ignorance and it’s hurtful to the community. They’re completely missing this golden opportunity and it’s upsetting.
So my parents are watching Dallas Byers Club and like….
Dunno if they’re just accurately portraying that time period or what. But if you take out the offensive homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic language it’s kind of a good movie with a compelling story.
I just wish they (actors producers etc) would make a disclaimer about the proper way to treat trans people but honestly I don’t think they have a fucking clue because they (Leto etc) keeps going around making these speeches misgendering and acting like he’s god’s gift to the community and seriously not making any effort to being educated on the topic
Yes, Leto’s performance is pretty amazing purely from a theatrical standpoint but that doesn’t mean he can speak for the “Rayons of the world,” which honestly is kind of an offensive statement because it dehumanizes the trans community.
Dunno though man, because it is pretty cool that they even did this movie with an A-list cast etc, but it doesn’t mean they can continue to misgender etc.
This gorgeous person graced us with their face at the Five College Queer Conference today! Come see us tomorrow at or on Sunday in Boston #weareyou #welovecolor
Okay but y’all don’t understand I am so unreasonably excited about my RodeoHs. I got the notification that they’ve been shipped and Omg this is a real thing that is happening and I want to tell everyone because I am just that excited but I can’t. Because it’s for sex toy. Total conundrum.
Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's new book Americanah explores the ‘strange construct’ of race in the United States. “You have to learn what it means to be black in America,” she says. In the interview she tells Terry Gross about why she aspired to have straight hair living in Nigeria:
"[T]he rite of passage from girl to woman is when you can go get a relaxer and have your hair straight. I remember looking forward very much to my last day of secondary school. … When I graduated secondary school, what I really wanted to do was go straight to the hair salon and get my relaxer, so my hair would be straight. Then I came to the U.S., and … I couldn’t afford to get a relaxer at a hair salon here because I thought it was just needlessly expensive. So I went to the drugstore and bought the relaxer kit and decided to do it myself, which didn’t end well. Having then a scalp with really bad burns, I suddenly thought, ‘Why am I even doing this?’ And that’s when I stopped using relaxers. And it took a while to accept my hair for the way that it grows from my head."
