whatdoyoumeanihavetochoose: thetrashmouthclub: somethingmissingthiswaycomes: vision-rights: subject-to-my-fandoms: tehrogue: norsegays: astrolope: People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook. I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story. A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right? It is a big deal because i’m a transman.  It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview. Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews. At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple. At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person. TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life. people didnt know how Pro-LGBT Target is. I will always shop there Looks like I’m going to target. Real men shop at target All corporations are bad but now I’m considering applying to Target. “when you can give equal respects for all of your costumers, then maybe many of us will be back” ma'am………. that’s exactly what they’re doing At target you can order a special name tag from HR with your pronouns on it! Officially printed on there and everything!!!!! Target just got +1000000 respect: Karen Green Target 57 minutes ago I just saw your ad and I will never be able to spend money at your store again!! One man, one woman for life, thus saith the Lord!!! Like Comment Angela Concepcion about an hour ago Target I just saw your ad for gay couples marrying to register with you. I have also experienced an extraordinary wait in line when a Muslim cashier would not handle pork and someone had to cash her out, cash in and resume the order. However, you will not allow your customers to say Merry Christmas and you do not carry nativity creches. I will never shop in Target again and I will encourage friends and family to do the same. When you can give equal respects to all of your customers, then maybe many of us will be back. Till then, I will spend my money elsewhere. Like Comment Chet Stanger Target 3 hours ago With your advertisement for homosexual bridal registry, you've lost a card carrying shopper. It's one thing to expose adults to such debauchery, but it's quite another to expose children to it. Les Powell 3 hours ago X Target Well Target you lost all my business and I am sure alot more when my friends see this...

YAMAOG also noticed that in addition to the occasional ugly inbred mule child, you can also get really strange looking fruit if the tree gets sick, is malnourished, if any part of the flower is damaged, or if the weather just sucks that year.  In addition to being a Major Slut, Citrus is also a Fussy Bitch. Looking at the Demon Fruit, my best guesses are If you’ve had weird-shaped fruits off that tree before, you might have a very strange hybrid tree like the dachsund-pitbull one of my neighbors owns. If it’s only the one fruit, and your tree is producing otherwise normal lemons, that particular flower or branch took some kind of damage or had a viral infection, which fucked up all the hormones and hence your lemon has gone all Ending-Of-Akira on you.

Enjoy a nice glass of demonfruit juice! @motorizedduck relevant

Besides this, look into ways to lower cholesterol, like replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” such as Omegas 3 and 6 found in nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Also, since this area is chock-full of dilated pores, check that your makeup is not past its expiry date or is skin-clogging. 7 8: Kidneys — Again, drink up! And cut down on aerated drinks, coffee and alcohol as these will cause further dehydration. Zone 9 10: Respiratory system — Do you smoke? Have allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air.

Legend has it that one day while the two men were sleeping in the same bed, the emperor was roused from his sleep by pressing business. Dong Xian had fallen asleep across the emperor’s robe, but rather than awaken his peaceful lover, the Emperor cut his robe free at the sleeve. Thus “the passion of the cut sleeve” became a euphemism for same-sex love in China. — R.G.L. get you a dude who will fuck up his own clothing for you NO OKAY THIS IS REALLY COOL SO SHUT UP AND LISTEN KIDS. Ancient China was super chill about homosexuality okay. Like we have gay emperors and feudal lords, lesbian princesses who were girlfriends with their serving maids, gay ass poets who wrote lots of poems about that one courtesan who played the guzheng so well.In fact homosexuality was so okay that in Shiji, which is basically the Bible of Ancient Chinese history, there is an entire section dedicated to the gay lovers of emperors. What’s the best part? All the laws and criticism about homosexuality in Ancient China were all about shit like prostitution and rape. These laws were  outlawing homosexual stuff were all very specific. For example, there were laws banning male prostitution, but no laws against homosexuality. These laws were passed to stop the spread of prostitution and laws targeting prostitution in general were pretty common in Chinese history. There were also really strict laws about male rape. Rape was punishable by death, regardless of the gender of the victim. Rape a girl, you die. Rape a guy, you die. Have sex with a minor, you die regardless of whether it was consensual. The lightest sentence you could get was slavery where you were bound to the army.Also scholars wrote essays criticising the boyfriends of emperors, saying that they distracted the emperor from work blah blah blah but THEY ALSO DID THE SAME FOR THE CONCUBINES. That’s right - the issue wasn’t homosexuality but rather the hormones of the emperor. They didn’t care about the gender of the emperor’s favourite lover but rather the fact that the emperor was too horny to get shit done.“But WAIT, Modern China is a hardass about homosexuality!!!! How do you explain that!”Yes. That. That’s because of the late Qing years where Western influences entered the country and brought their gross ass homophobic attitudes with them. And the Qing government was so anxious to seem modern and be seen as equals to their Western counterparts. So they adopted Western ways and discarded their previous attitudes about homosexuality.

cygnaut: poesieplease: whistle-notes: coldasaslab: johnstamostimelessbeauty: Here’s something to chew on. about me.jpg honestly In case you wanna read the article this quote is from: http://rolereboot.org/culture-and-politics/details/2016-05-daughter-know-ok-angry/ Adaptable girls find socially acceptable ways to internalize or channel their discomfort and ire, sometimes at great personal cost. Passive aggressive behavior, anxiety, and depression are common effects. Sarcasm, apathy, and meanness have all been linked to suppressed rage. Troublesome behaviors, such as lying, skipping school, bullying other people, even being socially awkward are often signs that a teenager is dealing with anger that they are unable to name as anger. Girls, taught to ignore their anger, become disassociated from themselves. Anger is so successfully sublimated that girls lose the ability to understand what it feels and looks like. Is her heart racing? Does she feel flushed or shaky? Does she clench her jaws at night? Is she breaking out in hives? Does she cry for no reason? Laugh inappropriately during difficult conversations? Fly off the handle over something that seems inconsequential? You can see where I’m going here…those crazy girl hormones, right? Better to just think of it as a phase. For too many women, however, the phase never ends. It’s lives spent never expressing anger at all and believing that they don’t have the right or ability to do so without great risk. : Interestingly, the reasons men and women tend to get angry differ. A 15-year study of girls and women found that there are three primary causes of anger that are not the same in men: feelings of powerlessness, injustice, and other people's irresponsibility cygnaut: poesieplease: whistle-notes: coldasaslab: johnstamostimelessbeauty: Here’s something to chew on. about me.jpg honestly In case you wanna read the article this quote is from: http://rolereboot.org/culture-and-politics/details/2016-05-daughter-know-ok-angry/ Adaptable girls find socially acceptable ways to internalize or channel their discomfort and ire, sometimes at great personal cost. Passive aggressive behavior, anxiety, and depression are common effects. Sarcasm, apathy, and meanness have all been linked to suppressed rage. Troublesome behaviors, such as lying, skipping school, bullying other people, even being socially awkward are often signs that a teenager is dealing with anger that they are unable to name as anger. Girls, taught to ignore their anger, become disassociated from themselves. Anger is so successfully sublimated that girls lose the ability to understand what it feels and looks like. Is her heart racing? Does she feel flushed or shaky? Does she clench her jaws at night? Is she breaking out in hives? Does she cry for no reason? Laugh inappropriately during difficult conversations? Fly off the handle over something that seems inconsequential? You can see where I’m going here…those crazy girl hormones, right? Better to just think of it as a phase. For too many women, however, the phase never ends. It’s lives spent never expressing anger at all and believing that they don’t have the right or ability to do so without great risk.

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]. : 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.
