cari, i'm going to seoul to study for 6 months. but i don't know whether to go on the first semester or the second semester of the year. i'm torn because of the weather and the festivals and holidays... what do you recommend?

That’s so hard!! I was here for a whole year, but thinking hard about it I’d suggest…second?

First semester:
Rainy hot weather when you get there, then it becomes autumn and the leaves and weather are amazing. There is Chuseok and a ton of holidays in October so you’d get extra days off, and then depending on when you go home, there is a long winter break.

Second semester:
If you come early you can take advantage of the long winter break (most schools dont start until March) and it will probably still be cold and icy. Then you have cherry blossoms and warmer nights for staying out late and enjoying.

Yeah, I’d say 2nd semester! Your heart will break leaving Seoul in the middle of summer, but at least you have all the extra daylight and warmth to stay out and spend as much time as possible :) But both semesters are great!!!

Yeah I can’t really see how it’s surprising that the word “pussy” was used a lot in protests against a man who is infamous for saying he “grab[s] women by the pussy.” That’s not about transmisogyny, JFC.

In general, the modern feminist movement really has to find a way to be inclusive to trans women and to be able to talk about how much cultural misogyny is based around wanting to control cis women’s reproductive capabilities. It’s good to acknowledge that not everyone who gets abortions identifies as female, but not if you’re going to obfuscate the fact that much of the cultural opposition to women’s rights is rooted in seeing it as a “women’s issue.” Not everyone who opposes abortion does it out of misogyny, but enough people do, particularly the people with actual power over legislation, that we can’t leave that out of the conversation.

Like on the one hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a lot of women at the protests who didn’t realize that having a vagina/ovaries/etc. is not central to being a woman! And that could be out of hatred or simple ignorance. The one I attended had a lot of older white women who probably aren’t up to date on online feminist discourse and didn’t think through that, so I appreciated seeing younger women (cis and trans) carrying signs that advocated for trans women’s rights and inclusion. And hearing Wendy Davis include trans women in her speech at the march.

We need to be more inclusive with our language. But that shouldn’t mean we have to shut down conversations about really common forms of misogyny – especially when we’re protesting someone who engages in them.

ETA: Hey guys, original version of this post had something about how trans men on HRT can’t get pregnant – I’ve been informed by @earthboundricochet that that is not true. I can’t do anything about the reblogs, unfortunately, but I’m fixing it here. Just a head’s up.
