Do you have x-ray visions that you look to peep into stalls and check the genitalia of strangers or do you just confront every non-cis looking person, ugly person and/or masculine looking person and accuse them of having a penis and therefore not being women?
Are you fine with trans *men* using the *women’s* restroom because some of them don’t have penis?
What about the trans women who don’t have penis? They can have a go?
Also you’re wrong I am 100% a woman. Policing me for certain traits as not counting as womanly will blow-back on cis women, like that cis lesbian who was not allowed to use the woman’s restroom.
I dunno bout you but the idea that there are cis women out there obsessed with checking other women’s crotches if they don’t fit into heteronormative standards of femininity makes ME very uncomfortable.
In my 20 + years of life I have yet to see a single news story about a cis woman being attacked by a trans woman in a womens room
You know what I have seen though?
I’ve seen plenty of stories about US getting attacked by bigots when we use a womens room
I’ve seen news stories about us being dragged out and beaten in public by bigots while people stood around and did jack shit to help
I really couldn’t give a fuck about what paranoid bigots think or feel about trans women using womens bathrooms
WE’RE the ones in danger when we use them, not cis women
^ realest of the real talk right there
what’s the use of praying if there’s nobody who hears?
#oh #*oh* #oh this hurts a lot #because they were children #forced to grow up too fast and made to watch those who should protect them turn on them instead #and some of them never had anyone kiss them #and some of them were never cradled #and all of them fought #fought for a new world they were never guaranteed to see #fought for their lives and their homes and their friends #fought because a boy with angry green eyes showed them the way #and a boy with pudgy hands and a worried face taught them they could #and a girl with flaming red hair proved that no one was too young #they were schoolchildren and civilians and veterans and revolutionaries #and they faced tyranny with shaking hands and haunted faces and sweat dripping into their eyes #and refused to back down #where’s that new world? #it’s in the hands of orphans and children and newly-created ghosts #in cracked walls and broken promises and blood-soaked stones #it’s in summer’s days that kill and the promise of rebirth with every sunrise that follows (via kingedmundsroyalmurder)
There is truth to stereotypes, but this does not mean that somebody should feel pressured to follow one because it’s what society says they should do. A christian gay does not have to become agnostic. A femme does not have to become butch just to be seen as a lesbian (an issue known as Femme Invisibility). A masculine straight girl should not have to prove that she is straight by becoming feminine!
Stereotypes are not a tool for you to find out somebody’s sexuality or gender identity.
This is important

When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words. All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers. By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.
Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”

re-bloging again because it isn’t right that learning and knowledge result in tears of frustration and in people feeling inadequate about themselves because of education.

Hades appreciation post.
He is kind of one of my favorite Disney villains.
He’s so sassy! I love it!
He’s one of the reasons why I point out this movie is hilarious.
YES, I KNOW IT’S NOT THE ORIGINAL FRICKIN’ MYTH. But it can still be good/funny for what it is.
“Mr. Zeus. Mr. High-and-Mighty. Mr. Hey-You-Get-Off-of-My-Cloud.”
Fun Fact: They rewrote most of the dialogue for the part after James Woods auditioned. Many of the oneliners were improvised. The top gif was his greeting to the writers when they were first introduced.
This is true! Everyone they were auditioning for the part were acting all large and scary and “I AM HADES, LORD OF THE UNDERWOOORRRLLLLD” and James Woods was like “fuck it” and walked into the room like “Name is Hades. Lord of the dead. Hi, how ya doin’?”
AND THEY LOVED IT.
James Woods has told Disney he will always reprise this role whenever it arises. He loves the character that much. It’s him in Kingdom Hearts. It’s him in House of Mouse. And he will never give up this role.
