hey friendly reminder to trans men and afab non-binary/genderqueer people that yr ability to take up space and resources that are designated as specifically for women (and i’m thinking especially about space and resources for lesbians/dykes) is contingent on ideologies of bodiedness/biology and socialization which paint trans women—especially trans lesbians/dykes—as entitled male rapists

the reasons that u can call yrself a dyke/lez/lesbian and go to lesbian bars or exist in lesbian communities and feel safe and welcome are the same reasons that my sexuality, my body, and my existence are considered violently misogynistic (i’m a trans dyke btw if that wasn’t clear)

okay, this is one of those things where like, yes i agree! a lot of concepts of desirability and trans inclusion in women’s & queer spaces are hinged on transmisogyny and that needs to be thoroughly rooted out in the places it’s rotten.

AND/BUT ALSO i would really love to see a shift in understandings within trans theory where we can recognize that my female socialization as an afab non-binary person with a trans masc transition history DOES NOT cancel out your female socialization as a trans woman. they are BOTH real and that shit is powerful, though obviously not at all homogenous because clearly there is no such thing as a singular overarching “female experience”.

e.g. i had a white middle class canadian prairie small city hetero-nuclear family female socialized upbringing. and yet, i still find that i have more in common with other people who experienced female socialization in any north american context and who don’t identify as men (cis & trans women, non-binary/gq folks, some trans masc people), than i do with the boys i grew up with who now identify as men.

Welcoming people [into the trans community] who otherwise might have been able to get by in a cis identity weakens the ideology of cisness, not the ideology of transness.

It’s saying, “we can do things for these people that you cannot because of your narrow ideas of gender.” It’s saying, “these are our people to cherish, not your people to shame.

still rolling this one around in my brain. while i agree with the above sentiment, i also appreciate and agree with the need for some kind of term or identifier that indicates shared experiences of transition as a process (social, medial, surgical, and otherwise). when the trans umbrella continues to grow and grow, it still leaves the same people (i.e. primarily trans women of colour) on the margins instead of centering their experiences with language.

that said, fuck cis normativity and supremacy. i have no solid answers but the questions are so important.

I’M 23 AND MY PARTNER IS 30 AND WE ARE FREAKING OUT ABOUT KANGAROO GENITALS

Ok, so I had to look this up for an article and

Kangaroos have 3 vaginas.

Why do they have 3? Well, they are used for different things.

The two on the sides are for sex, and the one in the middle is for giving birth.

You see, they have two uteruses, so naturally they have a vagina for each uterus. When they are pregnant, they grow a third vagina so the joey can crawl out.

The little joey, barely more than a fetus, crawls out of the third vagina, up the belly fur, and into the pouch, which has a sticky mucus membrane lining with nipples on the inner walls. The joey plugs a nipple in its mouth and becomes permanently attached to it until it is developed enough to climb out.

Now, you may be wondering how a single penis can fit into two vaginas at the same time, and the answer to that is, the smaller species of kangaroo have penises with two heads.

I don’t know how the two biggest species of kangaroo do it, as no sources specified. However, they did care to add that kangaroos do not urinate through their penises.

Oh, and the penis is actually located behind the testicles.

And the semen forms a mucus plug in the reproductive tracts after the kangaroo ejaculates.

And kangaroos can pause the development of their fetuses and give birth to them later.

“She warned us against becoming a movement only for white middle class people, this was 41 years ago, and today, so much of the ways in which LGBT equality has played out has been about white middle class people.”

“Outside the lab, Piff found that the rich donated a smaller percentage of their wealth than poorer people. In 2011, the wealthiest Americans, those with earnings in the top 20%, contributed 1.3% of their income to charity, while those in the bottom 20% donated 3.2% of their income. The trend to meanness was worst in plush suburbs where everyone had a high income, and never laid eyes on a poor person. Insulation from people in need, Piff concluded, dampened charitable impulses. Poorer people were also more likely to give to those charities servicing the genuinely needy. The rich gave to high-status institutions such as already well-endowed art galleries, museums and universities, while Feeding America, which deals with the nation’s poorest, got nothing.”

So for the last four months or so, I have taken part in the body positivity movement on Instagram, including posting photos of myself in my bikini and underwear/bra. Keep in mind that none of my photos have ever been sexually explicit or suggestive and that I have always been fully covered. As far as nudity goes, I show no more skin than a thin woman in a bikini. Below is a photo I uploaded last night, with the caption “I love my belly. ♥”

image

At approximately 2:05 am, I received an email from Instagram stating that a photo had been removed from my account for “violating the community guidelines.” I went to my page to find the above photo missing from my account. Angry and determined to make a point, I went to the tags on Instagram to find photos of women dressed in as much clothes as I was. I found entire pages dedicated to sharing women in sexually explicit and suggestive poses in half the clothes I am wearing in the above photo. I also found men, completely naked with the photo cropped to just miss their dick being in the photo. I reported these photos for nearly half an hour.

At exactly 3:58 am, I was logged off of my Instagram account while using it and then told that my account had been disabled for violating the community guidelines. My entire account containing over 560 followers and over 500 personal photos and memories of my self love journey were removed without warning.

I went to sleep crying, disgusted and angry that Instagram would do this. When I woke up, I found that every pornographic image I had reported was not only still there, but so was the pages offering to send people nudes in direct messages. That is the moment that I became enraged and determined to fight this.

This is not the first time that Instagram has practiced size discrimination. Meghan Tonjes went through a very similar situation and her story went viral. I am asking you to make this go viral as well, because THIS is not okay. By removing my photos and the photos of women of size and not the others, Instagram is effectively telling women that our fat bodies are more offensive to the eyes of children and their viewers than thin women half naked and blatant pornography. They are silencing us and telling us that our bodies are to be censored while the rest of the world can practice “cocks in socks” and post Victoria’s Secret Models.

I will not be silenced. After years of struggling with my body through depression, anxiety and self harm, I WILL NOT let a website tell me that my body is censor worthy simply because it is a fat body with cellulite and rolls. END SIZE DISCRIMINATION ON INSTAGRAM.

Anonymous asked:

I am asking you this out of ignorance, not arrogance: re the post about murdered trans-gendered women. Other than their attackers being the scum of the Earth, is it possible that the cause of their deaths could have been a lack of honesty with sexual partners? Not everyone is understanding of transgendered people. And while transgendered people may have been born female on the inside, men are so 'no homo' that if you inform him the person he just slept with used to have a penis, he may freak.

A

the cause is transmisogyny, full-stop. anything else is transphobic victim-blaming. 

real ALL of this - #4 directly addresses your question. part 2 of that article is here and #10 is quite relevant (again, read all of it).

honestly, trans women deal with so much bullshit and bigotry… you can assume that 100% of the harassment and violence they face is the result of transmisogyny and NEVER a trans woman’s fault in any way, because i guarantee you she is just trying to survive in a world this ignorant.
