a man and a women

What to do if someone comes out to you as trans:

- ask their preferred pronouns

- ask their preferred name

- ask when and where they would like to be referred to as their preferred name and pronouns

- ask if they need anything (this broad question allows them to tell you what they need rather then prompting them into a situation that might give them dysphoria)

- ask if they have support and if they’d like help getting in contact with anyone

- telling them that you still care about them and that them coming out does not change the relationship that you have with them

It’s Okay to Take Transitioning at Your Own Pace

It’s okay to be afraid to take the next step in your transition.

It’s okay to feel like things are going too fast and want to slow it down.

It’s okay to want to get everything done and over with as soon as possible.

It’s okay to transition at a pace your feel comfortable with.

It’s okay to take transitioning at your own pace and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. 

Jonghyun covering “This Woman’s Work” is so beautiful, i started crying. It’s so beautiful in fact, that’s it’s blocked in Korea. I know a lot of you guys haven’t seen it, because if we had, we wouldn’t be able to shut up about it. Watching this would be 4 minutes of your life well spent.

I think the main reason why Joss Whedon is famous as a “feminist” and Zack Snyder is not is because the differences when it comes to how they’re promoting their ideals both in movies and in real life. in Joss Whedon’s movies women are the same troubled side characters with little distinction included in few minutes of badass fight scenes to make them noticeable & appealing to the general audience. In Zack Snyder films, women have real personalities; they can be vulnerable but fight ferociously to protect their loved ones, they can be feeble on the outside but strong on the inside, and most importantly they have proper character development. Lois Lane in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman is more than a great example.

In real life, too; Joss Whedon is really outspoken about how he thinks he empowers women in his films. On the other hand, Zack Snyder doesn’t lash out at critics even when they get the message he’s trying to send completely wrong, like about how women fight back against their abusers in Sucker Punch. He quietly but boldly and properly depicts women equally in his films and it’s understandable how sometimes people misinterpret his intentions.
