A feminism comic I did for my uni’s newspaper. I wish I had a bit more time to work on it, but I’m pleased with how it came out considering the tight deadline!

*NEWS FLASH*

trans people don’t have to be ‘passing’ to be valuable

trans people do not have to adhere to heteronormative standards of beauty to be valuable

trans people don’t have to look any certain way to be the gender that they are

and if you hold trans people to any sort of beauty standard, may you live long and never prosper

Stonewall Was a Riot

bisexual-community:

transfrequency:

The Stonewall Riots were started by trans PoC, and making a movie about it, directed by a cis white guy, and starring a cis white guy. is probably one of the biggest slaps in the face to the trans community to date. Transwomen of color started the riots, and were swept under the rug as drag queens by the cis gay community. Making the movie with white cis male actors is disgusting and transphobic as hell.

This is so true it was Queer Youth together who stood up at Stonewall. And who then, with their politically aware and active elders IMMEDIATELY began organizing and did not let the spirit die. It was EVERYONE all LGBTQ of all together — all races/ethnicities, genders/gender presentations — many of whose leaders were Transwomen of Color, NOT just a favoured few cis gay men.

In fact the respectable types, the A-Gays, the people in business suits, the precursor to Big Gay Inc. were horrified. They actually tried to stop the Queer Liberation Movement. Look at this picture here from that time, showing this:

Destroy the idea that in gay couples one has to be masculine and one has to be feminine to imitate heterosexuality

"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"

"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"

"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"

SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.

This is literally the best comparison I have ever seen

What if our larger cultural narrative was less like “People can’t help being the way they are so give them a break” and more like “Every person deserves respect, regardless of who they are or how they got that way“?

Trans Guys | Bind Kinder 
The use of ace bandages for binding is not only extremely uncomfortable, its dangerous. Ace bandages contract around the ribcage, not allowing your ribcage to expand as you breathe, furthermore, putting you at risk for deformed ribs from prolonged use, as well as broken rib bones. Always use a binder, which is specifically designed for binding and shaping the chest. Can’t afford a binder? contact Aydian Dowling at point5ccclothing@gmail.com and get a binder for nothing more than the cost of shipping.

Why dont u like cis people?

unbelievableundefeatable:

bidyke:

They are fundamentally unsafe for me. In 99% of the cases, their life experience has neither taught nor prepared them for respectful or meaningful interaction with trans* people (I’m leaving the 1% to cis bi, lesbian and gay people, who sometimes do have that knowledge). Instead, society has taught them to alienate us and treat us in a variety of oppressive ways.

I cannot have a conversation with a cis person (and ever moreso with a cishet person) without constantly having to deal with microaggression. This means that when interacting with cis people, I either have to constantly and consciously cede my own opinions and experiences just to be able to go on talking (the proverbial “nod and smile”); or constantly correct and explain things to them, which creates constant conflict. In either case, the interaction is harmful for me.

In the great majority of cases, cis people cannot understand my life, my thoughts, my feelings and my experiences, and cannot even maintain a simple conversation with me without putting me in a state of distress.

This is why I don’t like them.

this is a well articulated explanation to why ppl are tumblr need to stop being offended by “omg cishet” posts, and instead understand that life fucking sucks sometimes and people need to get it out.

Many in the trans community are fed up with L.G.B.T. organizations that continue to erase trans identity or just give lip service to trans issues. We need our cisgender allies – gay and straight – to treat transgender lives as if they matter, and trans people need multiple seats at the tables in the organizations that say they’re interested in L.G.B.T. equality; this absence has been painful since Stonewall.
