Gendered Intelligence is running its ‘Imagining Our Futures’ event, for young trans people to meet trans people with established careers, passions and interests.

We have a range of amazing trans, gender queer, non-binary and intersex guests who work in various professions/ trades / vocational careers etc. for you to talk to, hear their stories and inspire you! 

Our guest professionals are:

  • a senior lecturer in Sociology
  • a software analyst 
  • a playwright and stand up comedian
  • a graphic designer
  • a special needs teacher 
  • a Green Party activist and local council election candidate
  • a medical staff member
  • a plumber
  • psychologist for a Children, Adolescent Mental Health Service
  • an associate director at a civil/structural engineering firm
  • an administrator for the circus
  • a social worker trainee

When: Saturday 26th April 2014, 1.45 - 5PM

Where: Central School of Speech and Drama, London, NW3 3HY (Map)
Meet in main foyer outside the Embassy Theatre at 1.45.

This session will also be a SOFFA session, where significant others, friends, and family members are welcome to attend. This is a good opportunity for family and friends of young trans people to meet each other and gain mutual support.

The venue is fully accessible. Travel bursaries will be available, for up to £7 per person, with a receipt. Light refreshments will be provided.

I’m so excited to be going to Central in the fall, and actually being around for these events!!!

LOL WOULDJA LOOK AT THAT? THE BOOTSTRAPS MYTH: GONE WITH THE WIND.

They actually needed a study for this?!

Latest research from the university of obvious put out by the department of “ya don’t say”

breaking news: water is wet

fam

i try so very hard at college and i have decent grades, but then i see other people who i go to school with who don’t try at all but “it’s ok lol my parents give me money, i can afford to pay to get into uni even if my grades don’t reach the requirements, i don’t even actually need a job right now either “

the more i am at college the more i feel like unless you have money you are fucked, no matter how hard you try or how skilled you are

ugh

They lie and tell poor people everything they need to do to not be poor and it’s all crap. =/

I have to say that this is NOT exactly true in my case. And that’s important, because the reason I will be better off with a degree, is because I won’t be in debt after undergrad, and A LOT of circumstantial things worked out (w/ jobs and school), I have white/abled/nt privilege, and I’ve had cis/straight passing privilege for several of my jobs, etc.

(Although I’m still nowhere near as set up for wealthy jobs as wealthy kids w/out a degree.)

DON’T USE individual examples to support the bootstrap myth.

A persistent osprey — likely in league with a mate — has been trying since late last week to build a nest smack dab in front of a traffic cam keeping watch on the eastbound U.S. 50 approach to the Bay Bridge.

i have made a post like this but here it goes *deep breath*: 

TRANSETHNICITY IS A REAL THING IN ADOPTION TERMS. 

it is when a child of one ethnicity is adopted by parents of another ethnicity.

white people just hijacked this term from adoptees and are using it for their racist motives. ‘transethnic’ is a real term. you’re just using it wrong. 

^Individuals who grasp this simple fact reaaaally shouldn’t be as rare as they are.
