“White women elected Trump. Black, brown, trans and queer women have been doing this for far longer and at far greater peril.” Any kind of real solidarity from allies has got to start with acknowledging these truths.
Acknowledge white privilege, and acknowledge who has been fighting for equality from day one, and then use that privilege to help put marginalized people in charge.
I’m only about 2.5 weeks post op, and I’m Not supposed to raise my arms anywhere near above my head– but marching with women for women felt like the best excuse to do so. (I only took off my shirt for this photo, I’m not completely neglecting my scars or healing).
aphroditelesbians, a lesbian blog built on excluding trans lesbians and bi wlw, has 1900 followers. I want to think that tumblr is better than this, and there are more trans inclusive blogs than exclusive on here.
my goal for this blog is 2000 followers.
yes, I know, that’s a lot, and I currently have 0 followers, but hopefully with a little dedication and enough positive reinforcement, I’ll still be able to spread love and happiness to my fellow trans and nb sapphics.
anyone is welcome to follow, including non-lesbian and cis allies. I don’t know much about being a witch myself, and I just hope I have enough people surrounding me to guide me in the right direction.
expect lots of trans/nb positivity, art, moodboards, and icons! I may take icon/moodboard requests in the future since I found a pretty decent online photoshop program that’s free!
together, let’s remind everyone what aphrodite is really about!

being autistic is a lot to live up to tbh. people like your cutesy aesthetics and sophisticated sense of color, but they hate explaining jokes, watching you stim irl, and get offended when you don’t have the spoons to have a conversation with them. being a sapphic autistic is really hard, bc all these messages get to you and make you feel undesirable and you start to doubt you’ll ever find a girl who really, genuinely likes you and accepts you. I make a conscious effort not to flap in front of my girlfriend, who loves me very much and reassures me I’m not a freak 24/7, because so many people have told me I look weird doing it. and I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure that’s fucked up.
