trans scott

  • untitled by amorremanet (Not Rated, 234 words) So trans girl!Scottie decides to tell her t’hy’la that she’s trans, and Stiles handles this very very well. (Scott/Stiles)
  • Five Times Stiles Sent Scott a Dick Pic by taylorpotato (E, 5k)  Plus one time they boned. (Scott/Stiles)
  • untitled by tofixtheshadows (Not Rated, 393 words) Stiles is constantly calling him dude or buddy or saying things like “That’s my boy.” Scott DESPERATELY wanting to be good at lacrosse and get on first line, Stiles being thrilled for him when he does. All of Scott’s fears over losing Allison, his doubt that he was never good enough for her. (Gen, Scott/Allison)
  • the shape you take reflects who you are by bleep0bleep (T, 1k) The bite gives Scott a few unexpected changes. Stiles thinks Scott is a werewolf; Scott hasn’t even noticed that part yet. (Gen)

trans stiles 

  • All That’s Best of Dark and Bright by morganoconnor (T, 28k) It’s not a gender identity crisis if you’ve known all along what the problem is. If you’ve been purposely trying to ignore it since you were old enough to consciously make that choice. But what happens after that, when you finally learn how to let go? (Derek/Stiles)
  • The Heart Remains the Same by heartslogo456 (T, 29k) When Stiles left for college, he already knew the truth… Stiles wasn’t a ‘he’ at all. Dropped into a new, exciting, liberating level of freedom that came with going to college somewhere without anyone who knew her, Stiles began to explore her true self and began her quest to become the girl she knew she had always been. Her fears of everyone’s reactions back home led to skipping the first holiday… and then a second. And then the next. Two and a half years after leaving Beacon Hills - two and a half years spent living an entire new life as a trans!woman - a call in the night forces Stiles to go back to Beacon Hills to face the people she had left and the friends she had abandoned. “Stiles… it’s your dad.” (Derek/Stiles)

I hope every single one of those 234 girls are found unharmed. This is fucking important and it shouldn’t matter that they’re black. They’re human. The colour of their skin does not identify their worth. A celebrity with a blemish on their face could get more damn publicity. If that doesn’t sicken you then you need to reevaluate yourself.

Why I do not support the petition for US intervention in Nigeria

Today, I’ve found myself having to explain why i disagree with the US intervening in the current situation in Nigeria regarding the 234 girls kidnapped. Many see their intervention as an answer to this problem. I completely disagree. 

I first want to stress the importance of understanding Nigeria’s history and the formation of Boko Haram. I also want to stress the importance of understanding the US relationship with countries in Africa. It is a relationship of exploitation, abuse and manipulation which have left many (if not all) countries crippled economically, socially and even psychologically (Jean-Paul Sarte, Nervous Conditions)

Far too often, we have looked to the US as a savior when in reality this is not the role they have played in history. What I am seeing are people who lack in depth knowledge and understanding of this country advocating for what I consider an invasion. I am seeing people who are working on essentially what I would call white savior complex. Please do not forget that America is not a country that works on empathy. There is always a gain for the US and usually that gain means leaving other countries in complete and utter chaos. 

I understand the frustration of many and I admire the attention that this cause is receiving but let me stress the importance of understanding boundaries. You cannot speak on behalf of a country you do not understand. Even I, a native of Liberia, cannot speak for Nigeria as I am not Nigerian. I do not completely understand the inner workings of this country. Me, inputting my perspective in a matter I have little education of is not a gain. 

Yes, let’s bring awareness to this situation. but no, let’s not become the voice for Nigeria. Before you begin to advocate, please check your savior complex. 

234 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped about two weeks ago by Boko Haram, a terrorist group based in Nigeria. I can only imagine what they are going through right now. A handful escaped to tell the story. This is heartbreaking and I weep for Africa. All they wanted was an education. Something must certainly be done about this. Two weeks is too much a time for no action to be done. #Bringbackourgirls #Nigeria

PLEASE STOP USING FULL NAMES TO INVOKE EMOTION.

It’s dangerous to the families and the girls. If they decide to speak this in future it should be their choice whether or not they want to be named. Use first names, initials, or false names. We should not need names to support these girls and their families, as a people we should have already formed solidarity. For more information research Nigerian or some African media outlets, the western media is doing a shit job and giving out false information.

I’ve deleted our post about these young women’s names, you should too.

Salaams, Please make dua for those 234 abducted girls in Nigeria. Some have escaped but most have been sold into sex slavery and mass marriages. Please pray that they are somehow safely returned and are safe. May Allah give each girl and family members sabr to endure this and strength from falling into despair. May Allah swt protect us all. Ameen.

Wsalaam,

May Allah swt protect the girls and keep safely return them home. May He grant the families sabr and strength. Ameen.

I’m sad beyond words. I cannot bring myself to say how much emotions are coursing through my veins.
3 weeks have rolled by since 234 Nigerian school girls were abducted from a physics class in Chibok, Borno state, Nigeria by Jihadist group Boko Haram.

Somewhere in the midst of the tears of 234 parents, 234 missing girls, 234 dreams about to be crushed lies a thieving, corrupt, ineffective, inept Nigerian military and government. Please let’s spread the word, let the world see the level of decadence and how much the Nigerian government has taken it’s people for granted. #BringOurGirlsBack. Help a mother see her treasure again, help a father see his princess again. Please re-blog this and spread the word.
