I’ll Be In SF Tonight

And am not encumbered by any plans tomorrow. Which means that, for the first time in months, it would actually be reasonable for me to spend the day in Berkeley. If anyone in Berkeley would like to hang out with me tomorrow, please let me know!

(Note that getting around will be difficult, since half the reason I don’t go to Berkeley is my inability to use the BART without being harassed/threatened/robbed/etc. However, I’ll try my level best to get to somewhere near you.)

I would really appreciate it if people would spread this around! What YouTube is doing to LGBT+ videos and content creators is affecting intersex people, and, between the lack of intersex voices on the internet as a whole and the lack of people talking about intersex issues at all, this has a huge impact on what little we’ve been able to put out there.

One of the reasons we’ve been unable to create as much as other LGBT+ groups on the internet is because the stigma against us and how strong it is. What YouTube is doing is revoking the visibility we are getting and reinforcing the stigma that keeps us hiding.

The solution here is not as simple as turning off restricted mode. This sends a message to people that who they are is unfit to be seen, especially when done by such a huge, popular company whose tagline used to be “Broadcast Yourself”. And this still affects kids whoee parents won’t let them turn off restricted mode.

Please don’t just let this get 10 notes and disappear, please reblog this and make people aware. And, if you can, I encourage you to support intersex content creators on YouTube, including Emily Quinn (Intersexperiences), Pidgeon Pagonis, and Jenn Levine. You can find plenty of other good videos if you search “intersex” on YouTube.

Tonight You’re Mine (2011)

“Nobody is going to save the planet but you folks, you know that? You cram a hundred thousand people together, no music. What do you get? A riot. You give them music, we’re all in this together. Music turns a mob into a movement.”
