You will have to excuse the glare off our dirty window (window washing was a task I did not get around to doing this weekend). But Minky has been having a grand time with the road construction that is happening a street over from us.  We saw dump trucks, a road grader, a road crushing machine, a front end loader, and a “tamper downer” (or at least that is what Richard Scarry calls it). All over lunch!

@parents who don’t let their trans kids transition by buying binders and clothes because you say that you are not ready for it: you should know that not letting them transition is going to do a lot of harm. this isn’t about you. this is about your child’s mental health. this is about when your child is ready to transition, not when you’re ready to let them. there are so many harmful things you’re doing mentally to your child by not letting them transition and you’re really gonna ignore all that because you’re “not ready for a change like that…”?

cis people ignore this

to fellow trans people: support trans kids who actually do believe cisphobia is real and/or the trans community is unjust to cis people in general.

yes, they don’t understand how oppression works, but bear in mind that ignorance often stems from inexperience, and just because they haven’t been abused to the point that they hate cis people as much as you or i doesn’t mean that we should yell at them or laugh at them etc. try to find patience for them and be joyful that there are still trans children out there that don’t need to hate cis people and not trust them. be joyful that they don’t have to understand yet. most likely it won’t be long until they’re as deeply scarred as we are, and try to view it as a blessing that they don’t grasp how dangerous cis people can be just yet.

My 3 year old brother is so awesome about my name and pronouns. One day I just looked at him and told him my name is Nathan and I’m a boy and he looked at me like alright, makes sense, and ever since he has used my name and pronouns and even corrects other people. He refers to me as Nathan when he’s talking to other people. It’s awesome. Why can’t everyone make it seem that simple???

every time a trans kid acts pro cis i want to bang my head against the wall but ya kno. have patience.

So, I'm planning to write a story about Trans kids who find out each other is Trans because they walk into the correctly gendered bathrooms when their parents are not looking (siblings). One is nb, and I was wondering for the sake of settings, where exactly are gender neutral bathrooms located? I had a list but I lost it. Sorry if I'm wasting your time!

hey! @ school: nurses/office/gym bathroom, single stall, etc. everywhere else: small, local restaurant/diner with neutral single stall bathrooms, target has a girls, mens, and single stall bathroom all right next to each other so that would work well for yr story, etc.

I headcanon that Hiro was born Hiroko, and the bullying from identifying as male and presenting as male at school pushed him to graduate to get away from it all, but afterwards he didn't want to go to college and get more of the same treatment from people. He couldn't face more of that. But Tadashi was always super-supportive so his friends know about Hiro, and they get it and treat him as the gender he really is, not what he was assigned as at birth.

YES! I love this! Imagine Baymax being completely loaded with info on how to assist trans kid. I also like to think Hiro grows up and devotes a lot of time and effort to creating inventions that will help trans and non binary kids.
Also, in some of the non-english version of the films, Hiro’s voice actor is a cis woman.

‘Success Kid’ helps father get a kidney

“Starred in a meme. Saved my dad’s kidneys.”

The father of one of the most recognizable boys on the Internet will get a life-saving kidney transplant thanks to supporters of his son’s famous photo.

Eight-year-old Sam Griner was once the pudgy-faced, fist-pumping toddler who spawned the Internet meme known as “Success Kid.” The original photo shows Sam clutching a fistful of sand on the beach, moments after smashing a sandcastle. His steely-eyed expression helped the photo go viral in 2007, spawning thousands of captioned images about success. Sam’s face has become ubiquitous on message boards, comment threads and social media across the Internet.

It's Ok to Be Neither

Teaching that supports gender-variant children

By Melissa Bollow Tempel

Alie arrived at our 1st-grade classroom wearing a sweatshirt with a hood. I asked her to take off her hood, and she refused. I thought she was just being difficult and ignored it. After breakfast we got in line for art, and I noticed that she still had not removed her hood. When we arrived at the art room, I said: “Allie, I’m not playing. It’s time for art. The rule is no hoods or hats in school.”

She looked up with tears in her eyes and I realized there was something wrong. Her classmates went into the art room and we moved to the art storage area so her classmates wouldn’t hear our conversation. I softened my tone and asked her if she’d like to tell me what was wrong.

“My ponytail,” she cried.

“Can I see?” I asked.

She nodded and pulled down her hood. Allie’s braids had come undone overnight and there hadn’t been time to redo them in the morning, so they had to be put back in a ponytail. It was high up on the back of her head like those of many girls in our class, but I could see that to Allie it just felt wrong. With Allie’s permission, I took the elastic out and re-braided her hair so it could hang down.

“How’s that?” I asked.

She smiled. “Good,” she said and skipped off to join her friends in art.

‘Why Do You Look Like a Boy?’

Allison was biologically a girl but felt more comfortable wearing Tony Hawk long-sleeved T-shirts, baggy jeans, and black tennis shoes. Her parents were accepting and supportive. Her mother braided her hair in cornrows because Allie thought it made her look like Will Smith’s son, Trey, in the remake of The Karate Kid. She preferred to be called Allie. The first day of school, children who hadn’t been in Allie’s class in kindergarten referred to her as “he.”

I didn’t want to assume I knew how Allie wanted me to respond to the continual gender mistakes, so I made a phone call home and Allie’s mom put me on speakerphone.

“Allie,” she said, “Ms. Melissa is on the phone. She would like to know if you want her to correct your classmates when they say you are a boy, or if you would rather that she just doesn’t say anything.”

Allie was shy on the phone. “Um …

tell them that I am a girl,” she whispered.

The next day when I corrected classmates and told them that Allie was a girl, they asked her a lot of questions that she wasn’t prepared for: “Why do you look like a boy?” “If you’re a girl, why do you always wear boys’ clothes?” Some even told her that she wasn’t supposed to wear boys’ clothes if she was a girl. It became evident that I would have to address gender directly in order to make the classroom environment more comfortable for Allie and to squash the gender stereotypes that my 1st graders had absorbed in their short lives.
