no more cis men playing trans women
no more equating trans women to men because they have the same genitals at birth
no more cis men getting awards for trans women roles while actual trans women are getting ignored
more trans women playing cis women. more trans women being treated like women instead of men in makeup. more trans women.
I was going to post iStockphoto image of that but I googled it and found iStock porn and I believe that’s a sign I should not proceed in this venture.
We arrested these five on Zandar. Check out the rap sheets. (x)
My son though the trailer was meh. I may disown him.
I support this
Very sad news to report today.
Bob Casale of Devo. Born: July 14th, 1952 . Deceased: February 17th, 2014
As an original member of Devo, Bob Casale was there in the trenches with me from the beginning. He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got. He was excited about the possibility of Mark Mothersbaugh allowing Devo to play shows again. His sudden death from conditions that lead to heart failure came as a total shock to us all.

I’ve heard a lot of people talk about how important it is for bisexual people who are in “straight-appearing” relationship to out themselves as bisexual. That that is the way that you can help contribute to the eradication of homophobia and biphobia: by showing people that YOU are a member of that community, even if you aren’t currently with a same-sex partner. Dating a women doesn’t make you not bi, and making sure your friends/family know about your orientation (safely and when you’re ready, of course) will help them realize that bisexuality is normal, acceptable, and closer to their lives when they realize. Also, calling out homophobia directly is another way to be in solidarity and use your male privilege to benefit others. I hope this helps, take care.
Man, okay I continue to feel pretty weird/uncomfortable with misandrymermaid answering questions like this. I can’t find it in her blog summary, but I’m fairly certain mm is straight/cis. (If she’s not, then that’s different).
Bisexual people are not responsible ‘for eradicating homophobia or biphobia’. Being open about our orientation is not a ‘lesson’ for people around us, and we have no obligation to be. Nor do bisexuals have any more responsibility than any one else in lgbt to counter our own oppression. Homophobia effects bisexuals- a bisexual calling out homophobia would not be working in ‘solidarity’.
The experience/acceptance of bisexuals, and particularly bisexuals in straight-appearing relationships is a pretty intense topic, and the Anon’s questions and concerns are very valid. I’ve had these thoughts myself. But this is not a conversation for people who are straight/cis. It’s a sensitive and personal topic that should be discussed within the community.
- I prefaced my reply by saying it’s what I’ve heard members of the LGBTQ community say many times (AKA not a solution I’m assuming or coming up with on my own). I am happy to just ignore questions like this in the future if my answering of questions like this genuinely bothers people.
- However, isn’t it a bit ironic that you’re assuming my orientation because I’m in a M/F relationship on a post about an anon who is bisexual but assumed to be straight for being in a M/F relationship? Hah
Honestly, I think what bothers me most is the statement implying someone who’s cis/straight isn’t part of the community. I learned the anagram as LGBTQQIAA. The second A being for ally. If we’re secluding straights and cisgendered people from the community, aren’t we just working against equality and such?
Being ally is nice, but that’s not the same thing as experiencing oppression of the group you support. Allies aren’t going to be allowed into all discussions or spaces because there are things they are not going to understand, and a true ally would understand that oppressed people deserve to have conversations and events that are there own. Allies are most helpful when they respect the boundaries of oppressed people.
Allies don’t get to be part of the acronym. (Good) Allies are fantastic to have, but they don’t have the same things to face. That’s why they’re called allies, they stand on the sidelines or on the outer core and hold up and protect the participants, they know that they’re here to fix a wrong happening while knowing they’ll never experience those wrongs firsthand. Anyone who demands to have a seat at the table is basically the tourist from “Common People” with a conscious. And everyone hates a tourist.
Look at this beautiful, hilarious thing
Wii U Prototype
im super cool + good at selfy’s
look at my adorable girlfriend
I really like this anime. That there is a boy. And he’s not gay or anything, he just loves cross.dressing. Theres also the girl who loves to cross dress a a boy and she’s not a lesbian either. I absolutely love the direction of this anime. It’s a slice of life that is realistic in the sense that society has told is what is right out wrong in terms of how a man or woman should be.
Believe it or not, I think it is so much harder as a man to express their femininity or dress however they want, because if fear if being called gay. And must of the time they are not. And they can’t say “it’s a hobby”, for fear of being called a freak. That’s because men are idealized. And yet girls can dress however they want, and won’t be laughed at, but be seen as “cool”, or perhaps a few times be called a lesbian. And that’s why I really like this anime. Because it shows us that side of people.
#okay but what anime is it
It’s called Hourou Musuko, but he English title is Wandering Son.
THIS MANGA IS AT MY LIBRARY AND I READ IT
that’s not a boy that’s a fucking trans girl. I can’t believe that even when a character is canonically trans, cis people will STILL say they’re cis.
fuck cis people
when you see a show specifically about a trans woman and say “wow it’s so progressive when they show him doing what he wants”
fuck off you transmisogynistic fucks
also way to say “well it’s not like they’re gay!” as if it’s a bad thing.
cishet people pls
well who know if they are gay or not or trans or not, its adorble and thats all that matters
she is LITERALLY A TRANS GIRL
THE WHOLE MANGA IS ABOUT HER AND HER FRIEND BEING TRANS
SHUICHI NITORI IS A GIRL. SHE SAYS SPECIFICALLY, EXPLICITLY, AT MULTIPLE POINTS IN THE NARRATIVE THAT SHE SEES HERSELF AS A GIRL AND WANTS TO BE SEEN AS A GIRL
SHE IS NOT CROSS DRESSING
SHE IS A GIRL
SAY IT WITH ME
FUCK YOU AND FUCK THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON AND FUCK YOUR SHITTY FUCKING READING COMPREHENSION SKILLS THAT CANNOT TRAVERSE THE MOUNTAINOUS PLAINS THAT IS YOUR SHITTY CISSEXIST BULLSHIT
FUCK CIS PEOPLE OH MY GOD
Well who’s to say, besides the freaking canon.
the canon says she’s a trans girl
Reblogging for the commentary. Ridiculous that someone thought this wasn’t about a trans girl. Wandering Son is a big part of my literary inspiration in my life. (the manga, I didn’t even know there was an anime actually)
So sick of trans erasure from fans of media. There are so few trans roles out there, even less good ones, and even if it’s the entire lifeblood of the story it still will be ignored, it’s incredible.
