Laverne Cox was purposefully kept off the Times 100 list.

Just let that sink in.

Oh and before you come at me, I do not care what you say because she was well over 90 fucking percent

If you don’t think that’s utterly fucking disgusting and transmisogynist then I…

I’ve been trying to quantify some things within my own psyche lately… really digging my fingers into my brain and seeing what I can uproot. I’ve run into a situation I don’t really know how to resolve.

Basically, I feel like Jane Goodall. Gorillas in the Mist.

I am a woman. I know this to be…

“I’m sorry. This is the first time I’ve hired a maid.”

The only woman on this movie whom I saw fit to raise a child, and she was the only one who couldn’t.

WOW THAT COMMENT WASN’T OKAY

Love these two.

Quote reblogged from willow with 1,080 notes

Anyone trying to tell trans women that their quality of life while closeted was improved because they lived in a patriarchy (a patriarchy which actively tried to destroy them and remake them in its image), for instance, is making a sick and violent joke.

I’m just so fucking gobsmacked that Millennials don’t think people are trustworthy. Could it be that starting with Generation X, we were all sold a bill of goods about college being a golden ticket, minimum wage is only for teenagers, we’ll all be homeowners, and that if we really work so very hard like our grandparents we’ll all be better off?
We look around and see our crushing student loan debt, our parents losing their jobs, pensions, and homes, and we thank our lucky stars that we found a job that pays fifty cents over minimum wage, we curse the landlord over another rent hike, we subjugate our dignity to an economy that thinks we’re worthless, and it’s a question of whether or not we find people trustworthy…

Any drag queen who thinks it’s ok to use the word shemale should first take the same beatings that other trans women have gone through after hearing that horrible word repeated over and over again after each blow

and for some it’s the last word they ever hear before their life is cut short

Maybe then they will realize just how fucking offensive it is

Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Kids who are smarter than adults though.

Experts have repeatedly debunked the myth that transgender non-discrimination laws give sexual predators access to women’s restrooms, but that hasn’t stopped conservative media outlets from promoting fake news stories to fear monger about trans-inclusive bathrooms.
For as long as the transgender community has fought for protection from discrimination in public spaces, conservatives have peddled the myth that sexual predators will exploit non-discrimination laws to sneak into women’s restrooms.
That fear has been an extremely effective tool for scaring people into voting against even basic protections for transgender people, which is why conservatives routinely use the phrase “bathroom bill" to describe laws prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations. When conservative media outlets attack non-discrimination laws for transgender people, they almost exclusively focus on bathroom and locker room facilities.
But that fear is baseless - completely unsupported by years of evidence from states that already have non-discrimination laws on the books. In a new 
Media Matters report, experts from twelve states - including law enforcement officials, state human rights workers, and sexual assault victims advocates - debunk the myth that non-discrimination laws have any relation to incidents of sexual assault or harassment in public restrooms

Alt-text from XKCD: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”
