Bleeding Profoundly

I am; a parent, a trans man, a polyamorous pansexual, married to a man, in love, living with chronic pain and fatigue, fighting depression and anxiety, an insomniac, an artist, a dreamer, looking for happiness, a feminist, an amateur philosopher, politically active and aware, interested in serious debates about any and all serious topics, following my own code of honor, otherkin, honest, thinking of baking something, a lazy poster, extremely tired, a fan of facts and information in general, and about a thousand other things...

This is what the cast of a Stonewall movie should look like, not what’s being cast.

These are just a few of the beautiful, incredible, unbelievably brave people who made our movement possible. Pay respect to the people who were involved in the Stonewall Riots by boycotting this planned whitewashed film about cis gay men and drag queens because it’s false and disrespectful to the trans women of color and the other extremely important marginalized groups that sparked the movement we have and benefit from today. Don’t allow this movie to further perpetuate the whitewashing of history and lies about who really was fighting in the Stonewall Riots.

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.

Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.

So here’s how to use it:

1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:

“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”

2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.

3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.

4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.

5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!

Um, yes. I will be doing this.

Yes. I support this movement

exaltedcoffee replied to your post: “How do you feel about Neil Patrick Harris playing Hedwig?”:

…both. Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig recently in the Broadway Musical but also Neil Patrick Harris transmogrifies himself into a white snowy owl and takes to the skies.

1. eccccch, theres plenty trans women who’d probs be stoked to play hedwig

2. i approve wholeheartedly of NPH being an owl

The thing about Hedwig (spoiler alert) is that the character is never presented as a trans woman per say, but as a gay boy who’s forced to transition for a man, who then leaves him, mutilated as a result of a botched surgery, to live his life as a “neither quite a woman or a man” in America, and at the end of the story he stops trying to be something he never really was… and his bass/guitar player (don’t remember which) comes out as a woman… 

So… for Hedwig to be played by a man… I don’t see a terribly big problem with that… 
If we would want to pick the right person to portray being forced into womanhood that they don’t identify with, a woman might not be the right choice, trans or otherwise.

Anxiety is a heartless mistress…

I have worked hard to overcome my timid, nervous, shy nature, to be “me”, even if that means I appear different than others, even if that means I stick out… 

.. and it’s become more difficult than it used to be. 

I find myself second guessing, hesitating, doubting, not just what I do, but where I do it. 

I find myself pulling away from Tumblr, avoiding certain conversations, avoiding the creation of certain posts, because I have people following me here which I know in person, because I’m identifiable.. 

.. and I don’t want to draw too much attention. 

Not because I have anything to hide, as such, but because some of my things, my beliefs, my wants and needs and things, are a little bit out of the norm.

I avoid talking otherkin stuff, because of the “fluff” factor.
I avoid talking kink stuff, because of the “weird” factor. 
I avoid talking certain political stuff because of how that would reflect in context of my work with the lgbt group.
I avoid a lot of things. 

I have neither shorn nor brushed my hair in close to two years, and I’m fighting an urge to take a machine to my head, “shaving” it down to less than an inch of fuzz… 

As the stress in my life increases, the worse this gets, and I start realizing that I’m living in a constant state of “fear” with no clear threat identified… and I hold back… and anxiety starts to make decisions for me. 

But I’m trying.. really hard… to hold it together, to keep myself from disappearing behind a veil of “defensive masks”, to stand up and be seen, honestly and openly, as who and what I am,… 

… but no amount of logical and rational thinking will stop that nagging voice that whispers to me every moment of every day and reminds me of how ugly, how broken, how strange, how irritating, how annoying, how stupid, how flawed, how weak, how arrogant, how timid, how shy, how cocky, how idiotic, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, I “look” to anyone who glances my way. 

Cute underwear

I bought cute undies at the mall today. The lady shopping next to me said “I have to ask, my son is trans, I am buying him underwear… I mean her, still working on the her thing, sorry, but could you help me? Please!”


I almost cried.

We’ve extended our search for a transgender contributer

Reblogged from neutrois

bisexual-books:

We’re looking for another contributer to join us here at Bisexual Books! 

When Ellie and Sarah started this blog a year ago we had no idea if anyone would even care about bisexuality in literature.  Well, besides us.  We were grateful to bring on Evan last fall but we still want to expand!

Sadly we can’t pay you.  This is a labor of love.   However, you’ll be joining three kick-ass bisexuals who are passionate about the power of stories and information to improve the lives of real people.

Now down to business.   

We feel like we’ve got this cis thing covered, so we’re looking for a transgender bisexual to join our motley crew.   We’re using transgender as an umbrella term here so as long as you identify as trans in some way, that is good enough for us.  

 What else are we looking for? You must:

  • Be a reader, i.e. you must read a lot.  You self-define what this means.
  • Have the time to put up one review or analysis of at least 3 paragraphs once a week or more
  • Have time to add cool things of interest to the queue a couple times a week
  • Speak and write in fluent English
  • Be over 18 (since we review erotica here)

Some things would be neat but not required:

  • If you regularly read adult fiction (especially science fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction)
  • If you read in another language than English
  • Members of historically disadvantaged communities encouraged

Interested parties should email us at bisexualbooks@gmail.com  Tell us a little bit about yourself including your age, location, and preferred pronouns along with a writing sample.   This could be a review of a book, or an analysis of something relating to bisexuality.  Anything you’d like.  We want something that tells us who you are and why you are awesome :)

New deadline is April 30th.  

Please help us share this as widely as you can

Tony Abbott Questioned by Newtown High Students
[x]

The fact that a group of year 9 students can blunder the countries PM is pretty telling.

Tony abbot from living under his own ears

Female Student: “Why are you so against legalizing gay marriage?”
Abbott: “I’m all for people having loving permanent relationships”
Female Student: “Becaise I have a lot of friends who are gay and it’s sad to think they can never get married just because they’re attracted to the same sex.”
Abbott: “I see where this is going. Can we have a blokes question?” 

"Why do you think following in Howard’s footsteps and turning back asylum seekers is a good idea?"
Abbott: “Do you know how many boat people drowned last year-“
"Too many!" 

Abbott: “I’ll allow one more question”
Student: “Do you know it’s a human right to seek aslyum in another county?”
Abbott: [laughs] “That’s the same question as before. Another question!”

Just wanna say all these students cheered their peers when they asked these questions, and Abbott had nothing to say. 

These kids were, what, 16? And yet I’d trust them running my country more than this dibshit. 

#actually year 9’s are 14 or 15#so even more of a point#he got fucking slayed by a bunch of 14 year olds

Let’s have a blokes question…LETS HAVE A FUCKING BLOKES QUESTION!? No matter how many times you say you aren’t sexist, it’s little gems like this that prove you are.

fuckyeahdisneyfanart:

repeat after me everyone: respecting the basic human dignity of oppressed people is more important than having a philosophical discussion about how anger is supposedly the same thing as hatred and how much better the world would be if we were all just nice to each other!!!!!!

because “don’t fight hate with hate” only means so much when you shout it in the faces of the oppressed, but barely whisper it in the direction of the oppressors

can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

#Arthur was my childhood jam and really stuff like this is one of the reasons why

There are only a few episodes that I distinctly remember and this one tops the list. My father is a chef and used to do a lot of catering (like Arthur’s dad) at around the age I would watch this. I was actually worried when I saw his dad in the kitchen fire.
