[130609 Fansign] Lay said that if they win first on a music program, he'll be able to withstand someone blowing on his neck for 10 seconds. Upon hearing this, Xiumin went and blew on his neck, causing Lay to kneel down. At the side, the members echoed and said that it's really true that Lay's neck is really sensitive~ can't stand his neck being tickled.
Beep boop this is your regularly-scheduled reminder that:
- non-binary trans people exist
- passing privilege is a thing
- not every trans person socially or medically transitions
- you cannot always tell by looking at a person if they are trans
- being ‘stealth’ or ‘in the closest’ does not mean that a queer/trans person lacks self-respect or confidence because there are many Very Serious barriers to social transition/openness about trans or queer status and it’s very presumptuous to assume that everyone has the luxury of being out to everyone 100% of the time
- a trans person presenting as their assigned gender does not mean that they are not trans
- no one has to adhere to the social preconceptions of gender regardless of trans status, but people who do adhere to them are not weak or less deserving of respect
- there is no such thing as Trans Enough
- trans people can be transmisogynist, binarist, cissexist, heterosexist, racist, sexist, sizeist, ableist, and any other -ist, and their trans status does not make them immune to criticism
- trans people aren’t inspiration porn or pity porn
- it is okay to change gender labels multiple times because gender is fluid and it doesn’t make you a ‘special snowflake’ or whatever
- all pronouns are imaginary and invented so shut up about ‘weird’ pronouns
- respect pronouns, respect gender identities, don’t be an asshole

"But How Is It Offensive": That I Profess Attraction to Trans Men
Suppose you made a post with something like this in mind:
“I’m a lesbian: I love women and FtM’s”
“I love androgyny, FtM’s are so hot.”
“Trans men are so much better than cis men.”
Chances are you received at least one frustrated and upset response from a trans man and you may not understand why. Let’s start with the first one:

“Feminism that’s based in a link between gender and genitals doesn’t just exclude people who’s bodies don’t fit – it’s a fundamentally flawed analysis that perpetuates an essentialist idea that feminism partially exists to combat. Feminism that centers a trans feminist take on gender, that recognizes that woman ≠ vagina, offers a more accurate gender analysis in general that benefits everyone.”—Jos Truitt, On trans issues within feminism and strengthening the movement’s gender analysis
hey guys this is important
CTV is a somewhat prominent news station in my province and the poll today (im assuming it’ll be for two more hours since it’s 10pm here) is should the government fund gender reassignment surgery and the vote is mostly no
public opinion on this site/broadcast station is probably more likely to be noticed by politicians and such so if you could help boost up the “yes” it would be awesome

B.A.P in Taiwan lets slip that they ‘use their fists’ when they have arguments
Korean Hip Hop boy band B.A.P reveals to fans what happens in their dorm “behind the closed doors”. Since they shared a room together before, Himchan said “fights are often inevitable, but we do try to talk them out.”
When asked if they ever fight with each other, the 6 boys shook their heads simultaneously. However, leader Bang Yongguk revealed “There are times when we use our fists.” Realising his mistake, he hastily added “But we don’t actually fight!”
