Pariah Me Outcast You

threadsofgender:

So if you’re transgender or queer or disabled or different in a statistically significant way, you probably have some armor on, or you have in the past. I did. I was bullied, ridiculed, harassed, demeaned, and belittled all because I wanted to wear some different clothes and emote a little…

It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live.

Hmm ;-)

a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.

Something like that anyway

Hmm, but maybe there is actually a female mind, only she wasn’t the owner of a very pure example of one. It looks like she was actually a bit of a mixture there. That’s kind of the whole problem really, the members of the hybrid classes get to create and define the reality of those at the more dimorphic ends of the spectrum, and no one individual can really understand or speak for the inner experience of another. Are most feminists really very feminine?

In which case, you fail by default.

I just adore JK Rowling. Forever and ever.

Hmm, seems a somewhat familiar situation somehow.

I think the first touring show I saw was Me and My Girl. I just remember the show ending and me thinking, Oh my gosh. I want to do that. I want to do that.

Gosh, I love Sutton Foster

Images are Maya Angelou, an elderly Black woman, speaking to the camera.

Captions are:

"Take up the battle.Take it up. It’s yours. This is your life. This is your world"

"I will be leaving it long before you under the ordinary set of circumstances"

"you make your own choices. You can decide life isn’t worth living."

"And that would be the worst thing you can do. How do you know?"

"so far? Try it. See. So pick it up"
"Pick up the battle and make it a better world. Just where you are."

"and it can be better. And it must be better."

"but it is up to us".

This!

ineverthoughtasinglething:

I was thinking, this really is like going through puberty again. I’m confused, I have no idea who I am or what’s going on, I’m discovering my sexuality, and I’m kinda scared and unsure.

This really is hard. Harder than I expected, and I’m not even full-time yet. Just dealing with myself is…

Hmm, bit of a bumpy ride ahead. Or maybe that parts actually behind me now.
