daggerpen: Ashley Del Valle is a transgender woman from New York who was arrested in Georgia for indecent exposure after she allegedly showed her breasts, but then was housed in an all-male jail. I just. You arrest her because her top is too sheer and shows her nipples, something that is only a crime for women. And then you jail her as a man. Fucking fuck. What. Geez. What is wrong with...
ponticat: earthyqueer: superyouandinvisibleme: “You can’t be asexual because you don’t reproduce by self-replicating” is basically the same argument as “Your nose can’t be running because it doesn’t have feet.” oh my god this is going on my list of fave asexual posts

gay-mo: The child I babysit sometimes is 5 years old. Last time I went to take care of him I noticed he has this awesome painting of the moon in his bedroom. He told me his mothers friend painted it. After he told me the artists name he then explained to me “She used to be a boy but she didn’t feel good so now she just takes medicine and it helps her to be a girl. She feels better” It’s...
How is Same-Sex Marriage Affecting the Wedding...
I’ve been pondering this question for a bit, so I decided to do a little research. According to this article ( http://www.bookmorebrides.com/same-sex-marriage-and-the-wedding-industry-hype-or-salvation/ ) and many others like it, it seems that same-sex weddings have given many wedding-oriented businesses a huge boost in profits.

Unfortunately, this only links to a preview of the article, but it’s still cool to see. The article is about the surgical transition of a trans teen and his process of applying to college. From the preview it kind of reads like another article that’s mostly an introduction to the basics of transgenderism, but I guess that that sort of article is what a lot of people still need to...
