I am EXTREMELY over “women & trans” events. THIS JUST IN: TRANS MEN ARE MEN. And trans women are women. Do you know why you don’t have any trans women coming to your “community building” events? Because your criteria of who’s invited shows that you still think of trans men as “woman enough,” which means that you think of trans women as “man enough” too.

Arya had to change her identity to survive so many times, like Arry and Nan, and now that she’s finally on her own, like going wherever she wants to go, do you feel that she’s still attached to who she is as a Stark or do you think that she is someone new entirely? How do you play that?

"Let Me In"

Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart

This illustration is a parody/mash-up of sorts that I (Megan Lara) created— I based it exactly on Mucha’s art nouveau pieces “The Cowslip" and "The Feather,” which I quite often see as a diptych.  I have several different versions of this available as prints and things!  I packed a ton of references into these pieces, some more subtle than others. :)  I hope you enjoy it!  I had a blast creating it. :)

The original version, with the exact layout based on Mucha’s pieces, can be found as a print on Redbubble.  

The cropped version, which I think frames better than the original version, can be found on Society6 (currently has a promo for $5 off each item and free shipping!) as a print, mug, pillow, tote bag, etc!  

The version I created for t-shirts (in order to get rid of the boxy design, I used several of Mucha’s flourishes to make it more aesthetically pleasing, and added text) is available as a shirt on Society6 ($5 off plus free shipping until midnight on April 13th-also available on things other than shirts), Design By Humans and Redbubble (kid’s clothes available on Redbubble and Society6 btw!) and Teepublic (the cheapest option!)

AND finally, signed prints available in my Etsy store. :)

P
hew!

Cis Researchers Get Rich While Their Trans Subjects Starve

odofemi:

Some group of researchers just sent me mail on here to invite me to participate in their study about trans peoples’ Marginalization, Mental Health, and Empowerment — offering a “1 in 25 chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card.”

I sent them quite the response.

Let me put this out there: I have been working in social services, including working on multiple provincial and national research projects, for six years, and I can tell you that this project is pure exploitation.  Trans people are massively overstudied, and always for things that are not actually useful to trans people obtaining access to healthcare, employment opportunities, stable housing, or decarceration (which I would argue are the four most pressing issues facing marginalized trans people). Instead, these studies pad the CVs of the mostly cis people doing the research, make one round of people oo-ing and ah-ing at the results, and then are relegated to cyber dust.

So, if these people are going to exploit our mental and emotional labour by making us take their studies, the very least they can do is offer decent compensation. Not a “chance” to “win” compensation. That’s just exploitation.

Do not do studies for a chance to win something, because the only people who actually win are the cis researchers.

And cis researchers: why don’t you try researching something that will actually have an impact in organizations gaining access to funds for crucial work around access to healthcare, HIV-related health care for trans people, decriminalization of sex work, decarceration of trans people in prisons, access to trans-positive housing, and the creation of employment opportunities? You know, things that will actually make a difference in our lives.

This is why I don’t do trans surveys anymore.

just saw a real quote from a twerf that accused trans women of stealing the “gyn-energy” from cis women to survive 

is this why i became trans after being bitten by another trans woman and also can turn into a bat that is cute. a cute bat.

that is absolutely why 

what is gyn-energy measured in? Volts? Watts? Joules?

It can’t be volts, watts, or joules, ‘cause all three of those are named after men. I believe that the SI unit is raymond.

Harry Hay with hammer, Oregon commune 1970’s
"East Coast queers like to believe the gay rights movement was born on their turf but nineteen years before Stonewall and eleven years before Frank Kameny started the DC chapter, Harry Hay co-founded the Mattachine Society in Los Angeles in 1950. (Before him, Henry Gerber created the Society for Human Rights in Chicago in 1924, which suffered a quick demise after members were arrested.) "Harry Hay would be 100 today. He is a forgotten hero of American history who deserves far greater recognition; you could make a case that his contributions were more important than Harvey Milk’s. Yet it’s easy to see why Gay Inc. prefers to ignore him — he wasn’t mediagenic, he was a Communist, he was strongly anti-assimilationist, and he and his longtime partner John Burnside also co-founded the Radical Faeries."
