there are people who are praising ahs for being ~inclusive~ b/c they hired a trans woman to play the role of a trans woman in a series titled “freak show” when (a) they were only looking for a man to play this role and (b) she had to audition as a dude to get it.  they only got a trans woman to play the role of a trans woman by accident and against their best efforts, you can stop lauding them as progressive for calling us freaks now.

here’s a source

Project ROSE aims to change lives, traumatizes sex workers instead, critics say

redupnyc:

“It’s a very isolating job,” she said. “Because of initiatives like Project ROSE, it makes it extremely difficult to create a community to make it safer. It pushes sex working even more underground.”

a thing that’s fucked me up pretty badly and that i am still trying to deal with is the way i’ve gendered patterns of feeling in my life. the ways this has manifested lately have mostly been around dismissing desires for/crushes on women who aren’t close to me as “gross dude shit.”

like oh, you’re really into some girl who you don’t know super well? that’s gross dude shit.

for whatever reason, i still have a hella strong association between unexpressed desires for other women and feeling like a horrible gross dude. which is all kinds of busted, obviously, but it’s still there. it’s one reason why being submissive has worked out so well for me, because i’ve been able to count on partners to be more forward and dominant and make it less scary for me to express desire.

but i don’t want to be afraid of expressing desire at all! the problem is, of course, that shitty transmisogynistic culture paints trans women as overbearing, male-socialized space-taker-uppers at best and rapists at worst, so it’s not the most helpful context for working out apprehensions and fears that there are a million reasons to have in the overlapping context of a culture that is terrible with consent generally and with teaching women how to express desire specifically.

"Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the under wood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated."

when people say that raising the minimum wage will hurt workers because of layoffs or inflation they’re really just admitting that capitalism is structurally unable to provide an adequate standard of living for the working class

National Coming Out Day Reminder

theinvisiblegender:

Coming out is not about choice for everyone for some, it is a luxury that they can not afford. Staying in the closet doesn’t make someone any less a part of the LGBTQA community.
