Hello friends, I have an announcement that I thought could be helpful for you whether you’re a transgender male or a shy lady or just hate the sound tampon wrappers make when you open them. Tampax Radiant Plastic brand tampons are virtually silent when you open them and are resealable too. The wrappers are softer and smoother than other brand’s wrappers and even when you take them out of your pocket, you can hardly hear them, if not at all. I thought this announcement could help some people of tampons proved to be a problem for you, so If you do think it’s helpful at all, just spread this around and let some people know about them.

The fight for marriage equality under the law is over.
Now let’s fight for trans friendly bathrooms.
Let’s fight for gender and same-sex sex education lessons in schools.
Let’s fight for holding hands in public.
Let’s fight for identity.
Let’s fight for love.
Let’s fight for actually being equal.
This is just a step.


Meet The Badass Transgender Talk Show Host Who Wants To Be China’s Most Influential Woman

SHANGHAI – They call her “poison tongue.” Jin Xing has verbally bitch-slapped TV hosts, stormed off sets and carved out a reputation as a straight-talker who does things her own way.

“My words aren’t like massage oil – they’re like acupuncture needles,” Jin Xing (pronounced “jeen shing”) told The WorldPost. “They go right to the nerve and twist it.”

This is my little (but tall as fuck) sister, Amber. Her name used to be jon, but she realized that deep inside she is a girl and she is one of the most beautiful girls I know. Yes, it had taken me a while to get used to the fact that instead of having a little brother to get into fights with I now have a little sister to teach me how to do my make up so well.

I just wish my dad would see her the way I do. Every time he calls me he brings up amber and how he’s soooo uncomfortable with it and starts making fun of his son and what he’s going through. And it’s like, I’m trying so fucking hard to support the both of them but it’s really hard because I can’t even call him on Christmas. He asked what Amber got for Christmas and 2 of the things were a purse and some make up. And he immediately goes

“no I’m good, I can’t ever imagine getting my SON a purse”

He feels like his son has died. But it’s just like..your son may have died but a daughter is being reborn.

I think of amber as a beautiful, spunky hilarious girl. My dad thinks of her as a rebellious cross dresser.

I love my dad but goddamn, it’s getting to be too much.


10 Backhanded Compliments You Should Never Give Trans Folks

Despite the rise in awareness of trans issues, people still say some pretty offensive things. Trans people shouldn’t have to reassure people that it’s OK to wear bright pink lipstick, combat boots and have visible body hair all at the same time.+

Here are 10 things you just shouldn’t say to us:

1. “I never would have known you were trans.”

Well, clearly. There’s not just one way for a trans person to look. It’s also not necessarily a compliment to comment on how well someone “passes,” because it insinuates that if you had known you might have treated me differently. (And if that’s the case … get your stuff together!)

This lawmaker wants to make it illegal for transgender people to use the bathroom 

Rep. Frank Artiles. is a Miami Republican in the Florida legislature who thinks that using a restroom is a choice — especially if you’re transgender. That’s why he feels no compunction about his introduction of the Single-Sex Public Facilities Act, a law which would make it a crime for transgender people to use single-sex public bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity in restaurants, workplaces and schools. “Violators” face a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail.

Utterly absurd logic he’s using to hide his transphobia

This is HUGE! It happened in TEXAS! And the world should know about it! #Transguy Mel Gonzales won Homecoming King of Austin High (which is just outside of Houston.) Absorb Mel’s words posted a few days before the election… (And thank you Trina Pham for the photo!)

“Homecoming court 2014. In case I don’t get a chance to speak… I never wanted to make it as a popularity contest. Rather, I wanted to prove that an openly transgender male could make court. I don’t want to be just your homecoming king – I want to be your female-to-male homecoming king. It may not be a big deal to you, but this is for my LGBT community, for my Gay-Straight Alliance, and for my underdogs who don’t get enough representation. You are capable, so always keep at it. ‪#‎ftm‬ ‪#‎trans‬ ‪#‎homecoming‬ king”

9 Transgender Men of Color You Should Know

“These men are using their life experiences to make a lasting impact on the transgender community.

Janet Mock’s advocacy and activism. Laverne Cox’s rise to fame in Orange Is the New Black. Even Caitlyn Jenner’s recent Vanity Fair cover. All eyes are on these trailblazing transgender women who have helped to highlight the people and issues surrounding the trans community. But what about the often less visible faces of transgender men of color?

Here are just nine of the many trans men of color who are advocates, writers, ministers, scholars and entertainers making a lasting impact in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer space.”

November 20th is Transgender day of Remembrance (TDOR). I have changed my profile picture to memorialize and honor all of the beautiful transgender people who we have lost. May their memories be for a blessing

There are stars whose light reaches the earth only after they themselves have disintegrated and are no more. And there are people whose scintillating memory lights the world after they have passed from it. These lights – which shine in the darkest night – are those which illumine for us the path.

Stages Of Transgender Grief.

Denial: “I’m alright, I can live being a boy.” “I want to be a girl but they say I’m a boy so I guess thats okey.”

Anger: (Also known as puberty) “body stop the horrible things you are doing!” “I’ll cut you if yo don’t stop! I’ll starve you if don’t stop!" 

Bargaining: "As long as I can have long hair, I’ll be okay. If I can be a little feminine I’ll be alright.” “I don’t need all that transition stuff. I really want it but it’ll be easier to just keep hiding it.” “No one will believe me anyway.” “I should have said something as a kid but now it’s too late.”

Depression: “I can’t even have nice hair…” “I can’t be me at all…” “I’m so tired of this…” “if I have to shave one more time, i might just use the razor differently” “I’ll never pass anyway…”  

Acceptance: “Alright! I’m going to just do it! I’m going to transition!” “I’ve decided to fight for me!” “Help me please!”

Revelation: "Everyone I want you to know who I am, who I really am.“ "please don’t hate me!”
