lol notes

someone just replied to a text post i reblogged a while ago about putting a lot of parmesan on pasta saying something about it “increasing cancer growth in your body. that is totally something to enjoy.” like geez dude u must be fun at parties

Just to be clear:

  • November 20th is Trans Day of Remembrance.
  • March 31st is (International) Trans Day of Visibility.
  • Both are very important dates.
  • TDoR was founded in 1998 to remember the murder of Rita Hester (and the fact that we know about her death is due to the diligent work of her community, that is, Black trans women: discussion here), and thus memorialize trans people who have fallen victim to attacks and raise awareness of continuing violence.
  • TDoV was founded much later, in 2009, by Rachel Crandall as a celebration of trans people, specifically citing that the sole holiday for trans people at the time was TDoR, a more somber day.
  • Both serve to educate and raise awareness, but come from different historical contexts.
  • My friends: don't get dressed up all weird and witchy, it's just a causal thing.
  • Me: yeah okay sure! *turns up in a floor length black dress with complimentary lace cape - decorated in moons and stars, covered in layers of crystal necklaces with herbs and flowers tucked into and falling from my large black hat*
