In new to coming out as genderfluid, are gender fluid people consider part of the trans community on days theyre not their "assigned" gender?

Genderfluid people are considered part of the trans umbrella, yeah. Whether you want to use the label is up to you though; labels are here for our comfort and we don’t have to use them if they don’t feel right for us ^^

Resistance to Trump has become a new national pastime, at least for the millions who swelled Women’s Marches across the country, besieged airports, upended town halls and who continue to hound politicos on everything from healthcare to immigration. This summer, when LGBTQ people and their allies hit the streets for annual Pride celebrations – in cities from coast to coast, in states red and blue – they will confront the question of how to mix partying with protest. It’s a question that’s faded in and out of urgency over the past half-century as the gay rights movement rode the currents of post-Stonewall liberation, AIDS anxiety, “don’t ask, don’t tell” compromises and same-sex marriage, all the way to last summer’s massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. This year, with a far-right administration taking office, the stakes are once again high. Pride organizers – who, at this point, oversee a year-round operation that’s far bigger than one day or one parade – are looking to history for inspiration. Activists like Firas Nasr, meanwhile, see the coming culture war less as a battleground than as a dance floor. Pride 2017 has three months to figure out its message.

  • Reggie [after being injected with 'truth serum']: I love butt stuff. I hate spiders. I stole a pen from the bank. I cried during ‘About a Boy’…the soundtrack! I can see why women find Clive Owen attractive to the point where I might just as well be attracted to him. I use comparisons to Hitler to win arguments on the internet at the drop of a hat. I know nothing about wine. I’m more turned on by women in pajamas than lingerie. I just wanna know that they’re comfortable. [starts sobbing] I didn’t get Inception. I didn’t get Inception! There’s so many layers.

hey guys, 
i don’t know if this is going to resonate with anyone really, but all of the people who watch jack’s videos that I have spoken to have been the most inherently kind and caring people that I have had the luck to talk to, and it’s nice to remember that considering all the hate that is going on everywhere, that a group of people will happily befriend others, based solely on one common factor (that we all watch Jack). It’s just something good to remember. 

Late to the party...

So, along with a few mishaps about my existence and a misspelling on an ROTC form, I’ve ended up late to this weird college. The RAs were saying something like ‘leave milk and creamers out’ ‘always wear iron and carry salt’ ‘don’t trust people that look shady (something like that)’ ‘word everything really carefully and don’t use please and thank you and you’re welcome’ and stuff like that. This is going to be a great year. -.- Anyways, I am, through the air force, coming to this college and am going to major in engineering. @knowone-else @paintedface-eu @tiredgremlin @nickname-elsewhereu

Hello, my little smutlings, I’ve got a question. 
I see a lot of “aesthetics” here on Tumblr. Picture compilations to set a certain mood or to represent a certain character. I think that’s very interesting, and I want to try that, too. 
My question is, where do you guys get your pictures from? 
Pinterest? Google?  I can’t seem to find the decent stuff.
Do you have a certain website for all those gorgeous pics? 

Flailing with Finesse

All of a sudden, I have become a serious community organizer.  
It’s like I am getting my wind after adjusting to having two kids or something.

I mean, I have served on boards and been involved with putting shit together for many years now, but now it really feels like I am involved in creating something new.

Specifically, what I feel like I am a part of creating is a thriving local fiber economy in Northern Michigan.

  • Tip of the Mitt Fiber Fair - Founding Member & Workshops
  • Wagbo Farm and Education Center - BOD & Volunteer
    • Organizing a silent auction
    • Finally feeling like there is some life back in the organization
  • Creekside Collective - Founding Member & Marketing
    • Trading Post
    • Makers Space
    • Workshops
  • Trying to keep up with my own fiber&textile projects
  • Still being a loud mouth at my “real job” about issues I care about.

Oh yeah, and Chich and I are planning our wedding.

I just hope I actually do have my wind here - and I am more juggling than flailing.  Or flailing with finesse.
