22 Is the number (other than 0) I’ve been waiting for. And it’s Leap Day, so that’s pretty cool
FAAB trans* folks,
iragray: I notice that a lot of you refer to your chromosomes (ie “xx boys” and such), and I ask you this: How many of you have taken a test to prove it? Rarely does anyone take a test to prove it despite gender assignment, and the existence of intersex persons proves genitals don’t necessarily coincide with a specific chromosomal set. I’m not trying to burst anyone’s bubbles. Just asking a...

"Moderate" Republican: I'm not anti-LGTBQ but I'm voting for a candidate that is.
LGBTQ Person: That's anti-LGBTQ.
"Moderate" Republican: Nuh uh! I love gay people! I just believe in systematically oppressing them because I think the economy is more important.
LGBTQ Person: Oh, well in that case you're still anti-LGBTQ. Go fuck yourself.

[TW: mild description of dysphoria] So, just so people are forewarned, I’m not having a good day. My dysphoria monster looks like a cross between the strange animated thing in Monty Python and the Holy Grail and the child of a Fury and a Gryphon. And now I have to change for Movement class…I don’t… Right now, I don’t want to take my clothes off for about seven...

Apparently there is an Apple TV

unholy-coffee-erection: thanks, olivia! I…just… I cannot even… I need to get off the internet. So does everyone else, except Sir Jessington and Olivia. We all can just go home.
I really have never “fanned” over another person/celebrity/etc. Ever. Except apparently Benedict Cumberbatch. Because I literally want his exact career as an actor, and I want to look like him when I grow up. Also, he drives a silver Jag convertible. Obviously, we are the same person. This is a problem. I’m too old for this shit.

A more flushed-out article on the shooting yesterday morning. They claim in the article that the shooting was “random” when they describe the student walking up to a group of other students specifically and opening fire. They claim it’s not about bullying, yet site something the student wrote about his isolation and negative interactions with the other students. The group of...

So, one of the people that runs the podcast I applied to intern for wrote me back! To let me know they got my stuff, and that they’re “excited” I applied, and will be officially following up soon! YES. I’m really excited, and I’m not sure entirely why. It will make me much more busy. I don’t get any money. It has nothing to do with either of my majors or my...
coffeewithants: So it turns out that, no matter how careful you are in placing trigger warnings on your own blog and facebook posts, e-mails, and conversations, you can’t ensure that everyone else is as careful, and sometimes you get fucking triggered by an ally— someone who otherwise “gets it.” Please, put trigger warnings on your shit. I know I talk about this a lot, but it’s so important to...

trannyboy: I was on the bus and I had my music playing in my headphones but I kept seeing these two girls looking at me, I turned my music down a little and I could hear their conversation. They kept saying is that a boy or a girl? I dare you to ask what ”it is, Oh my god I think it’s a he-she. Then one was like ”I dare you to go bye it when it gets off so I turned around and gave them the...
