Looking for Black Transmen

Hello, my name is Shahan Bellamy. I am a graduate student under the direction of Dr. Marlon M. Bailey in the Women and Gender Studies Program in the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University. I am conducting a research study to understand how Black transmen construct and express masculinity on Tumblr and in the real world.
As part of this study, I will be observing and interviewing Black transmen who use Tumblr to help express their masculinity.
I am recruiting individuals who identify as Black American transmen and who are over the age 18.

With your permission, I would like to observe and interview you for a period lasting 1-8 weeks. Each interview is designed to last approximately 2-3 hours and will be video and audio recorded with the participant’s permission. Interviews will include questions about transitioning, masculine gender expression, and your use of Tumblr.
Your participation is completely voluntary and you may exit the study at any time. If you have any questions or would like to participate in the research, I can be reached at shahan.bellamy@asu.edu.

Don't you think the new pride flag is less inclusive with the brown and black stripe? Before it could include everyone, but now, where for example do asian people fit in?

We literally owe all of our rights to BLACK trans women.

Not every trans guy is a skinny white dude.

Hi cunt women are lesser animals,with usually smaller brains, less neurons, and less synapses. That's why women rely more on instinct and emotion, rather than logic or reason. That also explains women's relative lack of intellectual accomplishments or invention over the past 3,000 years (and more). Your gender's main contributions have been singing, giving birth, cooking and cleaning, Nearly everything women have accomplished is with help from men or from a group of men. Women deserve no rights

Hi dickhead I’m feeling petty this morning so I’m gonna eviscerate this swill part by part. It seems like the concept of basic science confuses you. I’ll start by citing this article for you and provide some choice quotes. It used a heavily peer-reviewed study and the methodology was completely sound (i read the whole goddamn original work and several of its external citations).

“On average, for example, men tend to have a larger amygdala, a region associated with emotion. Such differences are small and highly influenced by the environment, yet they have still been used to paint a binary picture of the human brain,“

“Depending on whether the researchers looked at gray matter, white matter, or the diffusion tensor imaging data, between 23% and 53% of brains contained a mix of regions that fell on the male-end and female-end of the spectrum. Very few of the brains—between 0% and 8%—contained all male or all female structures.” 

A list of early inventions by women (it includes elevated rail-lines, Kevlar, and the submarine telescope! the lack of patents taken out by women early on is actually because men made it illegal for a woman to hold a patent in her name until the early 1900s. those darn men, always inhibiting progress)

 A detailed list of several well-known contemporary female scholars

Here’s Wikipedia’s list of Muslim women who made significant intellectual achievements

A list of 30 Black women who made history

A detailed history of Asian women’s contributions

Notable Native American women from the past 350 years

Here’s TWO articles on the contributions of trans women in contemporary culture (the first one also includes nonbinary people, just a heads up. It seemed more relevant than many of the others tho)

You know what fuck you here’s 50 more women who did important shit

Wikipedia’s history of lesbian literature (which lists a lot of books and authors)

Tbh I do agree with you on the singing being a main contribution, just because women have nicer voices (in my opinion) and are much more likely to use their songwriting expertise to push activist and progressive agendas.

Maybe don’t come into my inbox with this shit when you don’t know what you’re talking about? Put away the 18th century medical book and take a chill pill.
