Heads-up: this is a private, personal account. I ask that people @ me before follow-requesting so I find out if I'm comfortable being open in my locked posts in front of them. Please look over my profile and pinned toots and tell me:

- Where you found my account from,
- Who you are, and
- Why you are interested in following.

You need to understand what lets me feel safe and tell me enough about you that I do, but your toot doesn't have to be elaborate as long as it /does/ tell me; "someone boosted one of your toots and your account looks cool - I'm an autistic trans furry too, can I follow" would still likely show enough.

(If you are seeing this pinned toot because I copy+pasted the above into your DMs, thank you - I appreciate your going to this effort.)

As with most philosophies, this can’t really be proven or disproven; there’s no sense trying to argue someone out of the opinion that Phil is an asshole for not acting the way famous people are supposed to act – or, crucially, for not acting the way *we* would act in his place. This is a popular argument because it’s an argument you can’t lose – no one can empirically prove whether Phil is or isn’t an asshole. What gets elided in this argument is the assumption that famous assholes – people who don’t act the way famous people are *supposed* to act – deserve to be *punished*.

Hey so, I'm putting together a transmasc resource site (to include compilation of folks' self-reported experiences with transitioning, legal info stuff by state, a community/media side of things, and eventually hopefully community submissions).

I'm really interested in transmasc folks sharing what sorts of info they'd like to have covered, whether that's personal experiences they want represented or questions they'd like answered.

Pls send me yr thoughts, and boost this if yr comfy with it.

Because I was looking it up for other reasons: "How Terry Pratchett helped me hate a party and keep it real" by Maureen Johnson. maureenjohnsonbooks.tumblr.com

Content warnings for food, alcohol, and people being rude. Also, mention of death. But it's kind of comforting, regardless.

Here is the annotation if you cannot listen to it genius.com/Porsha-olayiwola-an but I really love how she goes from "I'm super dainty" to "I'm pissed the fuck off" with a quickness.

Every couple of months, I think about Porsha O's poem "Angry Black Girl" and just how true it really is.

Me, every once in a while: "it's kinda odd that I know the genital configuration of like, most of my friends."
