trans pride

I always start giggling to myself when I watch movies that have a group of straight friends with one gay friend.

Like, do the directors realize

It doesn’t work like that.

I mean, in my friend group, there are two bisexuals, an asexual (myself), a Genderfluid, a demisexual, two lesbians and one gay guy.

We do have a straight friend so yay for representation.

Androgyny is the presence of both masculinity and femininity within a person. Forget ‘androgyny’ and focus on HUMANITY!

We ALL have masculinity and femininity within ourselves!!! Society and its norms hinder this healthy dual expression, instead forcing us to suppress one and exaggerate the other depending on what we were ‘assigned’ at birth. We should be assigned nothing but HUMAN!

Love yourself and ALL its parts! Be proud to be YOU!!!

anonymous asked:

What does the logo mean exactly?

brendogfox designed our logo.

It uses the trans pride colors (”baby” blue and pink, along with white). The symbolism of the phoenix is two-fold. Overall, it symbolizes the rebirth that comes along with the acceptance of your identity.

It was also a slight homage to me. One of my nicknames was “the Firebird.” You can come to your own conclusions as to why that was. — Misfitreindeer

DEBI JACKSON, MOTHER OF TRANSGENDER CHILD, GIVES MOVING SPEECH

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

if you were previously homophobic but realize you were wrong: that’s ok, u are learning
if you are struggling with internalized misogyny: that’s ok too, keep fighting to overcome the sexism that society perpetuates
if you were accidentally trans phobic but are fixing it: great, we need everyone on our side
if at any point u were wrong and are trying to fix it: we accept you and we were all there. keep working to be a good person

With One Single Word, President Obama Just Made History at the State of the Union

President Obama just made history by mentioning one single word: transgender. 

"Although this is long overdue, it’s an important — albeit symbolic — historic first. No other living President of the United States has ever made mention of those who are transgender in a State of the Union speech. He also referenced bisexual Americans, something that has also never been done in a State of the Union. Social media was quick to applaud the President’s choice of words.”

Read the full piece here, including why “while this is a important step in the right direction, it’s not nearly enough.”

alright sit down everybody because I’m about to tell you all a little story of my friend Shannon. Shannon is a transgender girl that I’ve known and been close friends with since we were about 10 years old. She’s one of the most talented people I’ve ever met, an absolutely amazing dancer, actress, and singer. And now, the whole world is going to know all about it. For this month, J-14 magazine is featuring her as the “Real Life” story of the month, which is something they do every issue that highlights one ordinary teenage girl, just like Shannon. This is such a huge deal, because the more we see stuff like this in mainstream media such as magazines aimed at teenage girls, the more acceptance people like Shannon are going to get in their everyday lives. This is such a huge deal, and I’m so incredibly proud of Shannon for everything she’s accomplishing. Pleeeease reblog this to spread the word, share it on facebook, instagram this picture or one of you holding the issue using #shannonj14, tweet it, spread this like wildfire because this is such a huge deal to me, to her, her family, and trans teenagers and allies everywhere. 

also here’s some of Shannon’s links to social media stuff, check her out!
