bi-trans-alliance: These Joyful Photos Celebrate The Beauty Of Trans Women “As we celebrate Pride, it’s important to remember that trans women of color including Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, and Miss Major Griffin-Gracy were at the forefront of the movement. As model and activist KhrystyAna puts it, “This is Pride month; a month we would not have without trans women of color.  Yet, despite half a century of progress, trans rights still fall behind those of others in the LGBTQ+ community, with trans women of color remaining the most vulnerable members of the queer community.“ KhrystyAna teamed up with photographer Amanda Picotte, model Seana Steele, and stylist Guvanch (all four of whom are part of the LGBTQ+ community) to create this photoshoot celebrating trans women. T he photos are part of the KhrystyAna’s Real Catwalk Project, dedicated to throwing out conventional beauty standards and championing inclusivity. Thirteen trans women, including Steele, posed for photos wearing high fashion pieces in pink, blue, and white to represent the Trans Pride Flag. The 13 women featured are Daniella Carter, Alexandra Lee, Daria Dee, Mojo Disco, Jasmine Infiniti, Alana Jessica, Jari Jones, Shay Neary, Jazmine Shepard, Seana Steele, Garnet Rubio, Angelica Torres, and Nicki Vrotsos. The photos are beautiful and joyous — very different from how the media typically portrays trans women.” (read more) TomboyX Essentials Soft Bra LC, $32 $21.99, available at TomboyX.com; TomboyX Boy Shorts, $25 $18.75, available at TomboyX.com : We just want to love, and be loved, just as everyone else does."

33313dcr: lilcochina: U come into a queer space n ask an incredibly offensive question n got sad bc people reacted like humans instead of coddling u?? Tf outta here!! Bye!! You’re all fucking idiots. People who have certain inherent privileges normally don’t even notice that they have them. When someone asks a silly question like that, you politely inform them and tell them why they shouldn’t think about it in such terms. You don’t attack them because they have no prior experience with the matter. I most vehemently hate that side of the gay community. Being vile does no good for anyone involved. I agree. This whole “you should do your research before even looking at me” is a nice ideal to have but IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Being self-righteous and nasty will only drive people away who could have been formidable allies had you not freaked out like an asshole. Don’t get me wrong, a lot about this article is stupid but I think the right thing to do is somewhere in the middle. We shouldn’t coddle and overly congratulate allies but we also shouldn’t treat them like dirt for having privilege and we also shouldn’t expect them to do things that most rational people just wouldn’t realistically do. The “ally” in this example doesn’t know that the question is a stupid question. So SJW will then resort to “do your research!!” as if this is a credible retort. That’s like telling climate deniers to do their research. Or telling someone who wants to learn more about different cultures but doesn’t know where to start. Even if he did do research what makes you think the sources were from people within the community? What makes you think the sources he’d encounter wouldn’t be problematic? Also if someone from outside of a community knows NOTHING about a community, most of them wouldn’t even know where to start PLUS let’s not forget the two roadblocks to research that i mentioned. The best thing to do is to discuss with people civilly why they are wrong with evidence and logic and reason and yes sometimes peruasion.

THE BLOG Is the Gay Community Scaring Away Our Straight Allies? Hearing straight men identify as allies to the LGBT community always makes my heart melt a little. So when one of my new straight-male friends asked if he could sit in on a QSA meeting, I immediately said yes and took him to a panel on LGBT dating, hoping to show him how cool the queer community is. The discussion was mostly civil, until my fledgling ally worked up the courage to ask one simple question on a topic he was genuinely interested in: "In gay dating, who's the girl?" This question did not go over well. Mason Hsieh Posted: 01/14/15 04:37 PMET Updated: 01/14/15 05:59 PM ET Within milliseconds the P.C. police had descended on him, vehemently demanding that he check his straight-cis-male privilege as well as his narrow-minded assumptions about dating and gender roles. He should be ashamed, they said. On our awkward walk home, my friend pointed out two things. First, he was surprised by how unwelcoming they were for such a supposedly inclusive community. Second, he had no intention of returning. While both these statements broke my heart, they made me think about the less convivial side of the LGBT community. For a group that prides itself in its inclusivity, continually adding letters to the alphabet soup of queer identities, we can be rather intimidating to newcomers. 10 Questions You Shouldn't Ever Ask A Gay Guy CCOMPLICE Accomplices Not Allies: NOT ALLIES Abolishing the Ally Industrial Complex RELATED LINKS AN INEN AROLISHING PEECTVEINOUSTRIAL BUZZFEED.COM INDIGENOUSACTION.ORG 33313dcr: lilcochina: U come into a queer space n ask an incredibly offensive question n got sad bc people reacted like humans instead of coddling u??
