Alive, Books, and Community: Well there's no history of trans people more than 30 years ago, maybe thats why there not in the history books lierdumoa: jenroses: leviathan-supersystem: epically-scottish-big-b: songofages: thetolerantleft: thetolerantleft: softtrade: What is a Christine Jorgensen Tfw nazis literally burnt Hirschfeld’s (sp?) papers so we wouldn’t be in the history books Like I wanna be really clear. Hirschfeld was literally moving to a depathologized explanation of trans women (inversion as variance not defect) and was advocating for providing trans women with HRT and surgery, all the while treat numerous trans women with hormones, in the early 1930s. Berlin had a thriving trans and gay community you have never heard of because the nazis destroyed it and the systematically erased evidence of it. It’s not that trans women have only existed the last thirty years, it’s that you have been intentionally denied knowledge of our history by reactionaries who want to see us dead. In 1946 renowned new zealander Harold Gilles preformed the first FtM sex reassignment surgeries.1946. A lot longer than 30 years ago.In 1951 he was able to preform the opposite, pioneering techniques for those who were transitioning from male to female.So anyone who says its only 30 years… should look to a local plastic surgeon and ask about Mr Gilles. 1812  – James Miranda Barry graduated from the Medical School of Edinburgh University as a doctor. Barry went on to serve as an army surgeon working overseas. Barry lived as a man but was found to be female-bodied upon his death in 1865. 1932  – The News of the World published a story, ‘Amazing Change of Sex’, about a trans man from Sussex who transitioned ‘from Margery to Maurice’. Colonel Sir Victor Barker DSO (1895 - 1960) married Elfrida Haward in Brighton. Barker’s birth sex (female) is later revealed and the marriage is consequently annulled…. 1936  – A 30-year-old British athletic champion, Mark Weston of Plymouth, transitioned from female to male. The story appeared in some national newspapers, including the News of the World (31 May 1936). The reportage was accurate and sensitive. In the words of L. R. Broster, the Harley Street surgeon who treated him, ‘Mark Weston, who has always been brought up as a female, is a male and should continue to live as such’. There is some debate on James Barry but I still think this is relevant. All of these taken from wikipedia timeline of LGBT history. (I had a look a few months ago out of curiosity.) also, the goddess Ishtar had trans priestesses known as the Assinnu (they castrated themselves, went by female pronouns, and wore female garb, and basically by any possible definition were trans women) and that’s WAY the fuck back in the BC’s  Like, I’m 45, and 1946 is before my parents were born. 71 years ago. That’s longer than the vast majority of the world’s population has been alive. Hirschfeld died 82 years ago. If you follow @yesterdaysprint they’ve posted scans of newspapers from the 1920s of so-called “boy flappers who call themselves girls.”  Pretty much all indigenous cultures have concepts of and language describing non-binarist gender identities and have had for eons prior to colonialism.  Elglabus, the 25th ruler of the Roman empire from the years 218-222 BCE, delighted to be called the mistress, the wife, the queen of Hierocles and “was reported to have offered vast sums of money to any physician who could equip him with female genitalia” – [wiki article w/ source links].

Being Alone, Ass, and Batman: justplainsomething: nakedsasquatch: lanawhatever: nakedsasquatch it’s ya man Okay but seriously folks - as often as I joke about this movie stirs my loins and as weirdly popular as this text post got a while back, I wanna rap with you all about why the George of the Jungle remake is a pretty important piece of cinema. It’s literally the only movie I can think of that is based completely around the unheard of “FEMALE gaze.” Granted, while I’m a huge movie buff I’ve not seen every movie ever made. But even so, even if there’s another example of the “female gaze” in cinema that has escaped me it’s still damn impressive that a kids movie from 1997 based on a Jay Ward cartoon from the 60’s managed to turn gender representation in media on it’s fucking ass! First things first, let’s look at our leading lady and love interest - Ursula, played by Leslie Mann. Let me just say that while Leslie Mann is adorable and a talented actress, she does look a little less conventional and a little more plain compared to the bombshells that Hollywood likes to churn out. Leslie, in comparison, looks much more like a real women you’d meet on the street. She dresses pretty conservatively and plain throughout the film ; Wearing outfits that are more functional than fashionable for trekking through the jungle, pulling her hair back and so forth. Not that if she was dolled up and more scantily clad it would give her character any less integrity, but can we appreciate how RARE that is in the male dominated industry of film? Just think about all the roads a film about a woman in the jungle COULD have taken but didn’t - no scenes with her clothes strategically ripped or anything! You can say this is a kids movie, intended for children and that’s why the sensuality of the female lead is so downplayed but there are PLENTY of kids movies that handle women in a very objectifying and sexualized manner despite the target audience is pre-pubescent. Like, a disgusting amount. So I don’t think “it’s a kids movie” is why the film doesn’t take ANY, let alone EVERY, opportunity to showcase the main female character’s sex appeal… …especially considering the sex appeal of the film rests squarely on the well defined shoulders of our male lead, George of the Jungle played by Brendan Fraser in the best god damn shape of his life! *Homer Simpson Drooling Noises* Whenever members of the reddit community try to compare the sexualization of women in fiction to the design of characters such as Batman and Superman, I always want to just sit them down and show them this movie. Because THIS is what the female sexual fantasy looks like, and Batman and Superman are male power-fantasies. Look at him - his big blue eyes, his soft hair, his lean, chiseled physique built for dexterity rather than power. He’s wild and free, but gentle. It’s like he fell right out of that steamy romance novel your mom tried to hide from you growing up. Hell, the whole plot seems to be designed around how damn hot he is! First, for the majority of the film, he wears only a small strip of cloth to cover the dick balls and ass. Everything else is FAIR GAME to drool over for 40 minutes. Then, after he meets Ursula she takes him with her to San Francisco just so we can enjoy him in a well-tailored suit (as seen in the gif set), running around in an open and billowy shirt along side horses while Ursula and all of her friends literally crowd around and make sexual comments about him, and my personal favorite, ditch the loincloth entirely and have him walk around naked while covering his man-bits with various objects while one of Ursula’s very lucky friends oogles him and makes a joke along the lines of “So THAT’S why they call him the ‘KING of the Jungle’…” And yes, it’s also a very cute and funny little movie. Out of all the movies based on Jay Ward cartoons, it was the most faithful to the fast-paced humor and wit of the original source material (yes even the new Peabody and Sherman movie which honestly I thought was too cutesy-poo.) But that’s not why this movie is popular with the gay community or why we all became women in 1997. It’s just really cool that there’s a film out there where the sensuality of the female form takes a back seat for the oiled up, chiseled, physique of Brendan Fraser (in his prime that is) One thing to add: in the scene mentioned above where the ladies are watching him in the billowy shirt running with the horses, it pans back to about 50 feet away to two guys in suits at this party looking at the women and one of the guys says, “Man, what is it with women and horses?” So not only does this movie highlight the female gaze, but it blatantly points out that western male sensibilities don’t have a clue what actually appeals to women.

Totally 11:19 AM How is that racist to have a preference? 11:20 AM Because if you're excluding an entire group of people based on their skin color then you're racist 11:20 AM t's actually really not complicated 11:20 AM It's like putting a "whites only" sign in front of a restaurant 11:20 AM Except instead of a restaurant it's just your white mediocrity 11:20 AM Not the same bro 11:21 AM But it is 11:21 AM Nope 11:21 AM You just don't wanna acknowledge it because then you'd feel like a bad person 11:21 AM Why would i have to be attracted to everyone 11:21 AM You're a bad person regardless tho 11:21 AM Not everyone but not all black or Asians look the same so 11:22 AM You will never get it 11:22 AM Bye 11:22 AM Racism?

I have a type that I prefer. Do you? Because with a face like that I assumed you’d just thank your lucky stars that someone’s standards sunk low enough to give you any kind of dick. That being said, stop embarrassing yourself by defending the racist culture within the gay community that perpetuates racial hierarchies that exclude men of color, specially Black, Asian, and Latinos. By the way I’m married to a black man. Send him my sincerest apologies. He could have done so much better. If i prefer carrots over cucumbers, am i racist against vegetables? Boy that makes sense. But you know, whatever. Someone actually thought these words, spelled them out, put them in a sentence, and hit post without their brain being like “WARNING: YOU’RE DUMB AS FUCK” White people are wild. @romanhomen No suggestion was made that he was white. You tagged the wrong person, really living up to your URL tho White people are wild. HDUDHEHEHDODODB @holyromanhomo Sorry for my bad english, not my first lenguage. Its FUCKING GRINDR, an app to talk to guys who has a photo and you like someones, and someones not. Every one has a preference and thats not racist, sorry but doesn’t work like that. @etselente   @holyromanhomo  well ill tell you in spanish: si tu dices que no te gustas una raza entera de humanos. es obvio que eres una persona racista. no hay una explicación científica ni lógica porque un humano va a preferir una raza entera en mi opinion la unica razon es el racismo. porque si tu dices “no me gusta los negros o no me gusta los ___” estás implicando que no hay variedad en esas razas. entre las razas hay muchas características y diversidad entonces es imposible decir que no te gustas TODOS  en una raza. Es imposible saber eso. Hay billiones de gente asiaticas y negra etc entonces como vas a saber que TODOS  son feos y que todos no te van a gustar?  para mi preferencias de comida, ropa, picante o no picante, arte, música, esos son preferencias legítimas  pero decir que no preferies sexualmente o romanticamente o esteticamente  millones o billones de gente, la única cosa que tienen en común es su color de piel o raza - eso para mi es obviamente racismo. si eso no es obvio para ti en el año 2016 , no se que decirte mijo.   el último punto que quiero escribir y quiero que tu entiendas es que si tu dices “no me gusta la gente negra” por ejemplo, estas básicamente sugiriendo que toda la gente negra se parecen igual y eso es una forma de racismo. “ if you say you dont like an entire race of humans .. its obvious that you are a racist person. there is no scientific or logical explanation why a human would prefer an entire race over another, in my opinion the only cause for this is racism. because if you say “ i dont like blacks or i dont like ____” you are implicating that there is no variety/diversity within those races/groups. Within the races there are many different characteristics and diversity so its impossible to say that you cant like ALL people in a race. It’s impossible to know this. There are billions of asian and black people etc. so how are you going to know that ALL are ugly and that you wont be attracted to all of them? in my view, preferences of food, clothes, spicy or not spicy, art, music, - these are legitimate preferences but to say that you dont prefer sexually  or romantically or aesthetically millions or billions of people - the only thing they have in common  is their color of skin and/or race - this to me is obviously racism. if this isnt obvious to you in the year 2016 i dont know what to tell you dude. the last point i want to make and that i want you to understand is that if you say “ i dont like black people” for example, you are basically implying that all black people look the same and that is a form of racism”

Community, Fucking, and Future: LGBT zephyrblue: dumbthingssocialjusticeblogssay: musicsoundslovelythanks: crashwasplayingbadeverything: swaggaraptor: diarrheaworldstarhiphop: chiefkeeffanfiction: amydentata: At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes. Go trigger warn some shit LolTurtleMaximumVelocity That’s not transphobic, though. He’s making a point that because the LGBT agenda is “barreling forward at full-speed” that the B and T of LGBT is being left behind. Everyone is focusing on the L and the G that there are people who have no idea what the B and T even stand for. He’s not being transphobic or making a slight meant to make fun of or harm the bi and trans* community. He’s making a point that no one is focusing on them because they’re focusing on the lesbian and gay community. Mother. Fucking. This. People really need to realize that EVERYTHING Colbert says while on camera is satire. Satire: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the cotext of a play, novel, fiilm or other works. He is not making a transphobic joke. He is not honestly saying that bi and trans people do not count/matter/exist. He is making humor in order to shed light on the fact that they are forgotten. He is doing this to raise fucking awareness that there is more to LGBT than LG. He is raising a big flag that says “Hey, don’t forget about these guys. They count. They matter. Why aren’t you doing anything about them? Why aren’t they discussed?” He is not trying to say “They don’t matter.” So please stop with the self righteous, self pity, “social justice” comments unless you know what you are talking about. I do appreciate that Bisexual is matched with bacon. I rather enjoy bacon.  The sad thing is, I can actually imagine someone putting a trigger warning for cissexism and transphobia if they saw this. Hi, yes… I’d like to order a Lettuce, Gay Bacon Tomato on a whole-wheat bagel. Toasted with a side of ableism, and a cissexist remark to drink.
