America, Community, and Definitely: THE SEX BINARY IS A LIE inferior-mirage: antifakiddie: queerlection: [Image description - Image of the intersex pride flag with the text: THE SEX BINARY IS A LIE. End description.] If you disagree with this, you’re denying that intersex people exist/have a right to exist, just sayin. I disagree with this because my intersex disorder (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) is not a different sex. My diagnosis is specific to the presentation and symptoms expressed in a female body. Many intersex diagnoses - including Klinefelter’s, Turner’s, and hypospadias - continue to resemble our birth sex without confusion. If you disagree with this, you’re denying how variations on human sexual dimorphism cause significant problems to our health and fertility. Disorders of sex development reveal variation, not deliberate and distinct categories. If you read the archives of intersex advocacy organizations like OII or ISNA, we strongly reject being othered as fake males and females. Your ableist approach to erasing our chromosomal and phenotypic abnormalities to mark us separate but equal is not shared by the intersex community, medical professionals, or intersex activists.  Dr. Leonard Sax wrote, “This type of extreme social constructionism is confusing and is not helpful to clinicians, to their patients, or to their patients’ families. Diluting the term intersex to include “any deviation from the Platonic ideal of sexual dimorphism” (Blackless et al., 2000, p. 152), deprives the term of any clinically useful meaning. The available data support the conclusion that human sexuality is a dichotomy, not a continuum. More than 99.98% of humans are either male or female. If the term intersex is to retain any clinical meaning, the use of this term should be restricted to those conditions in which chromosomal sex is inconsistent with phenotypic sex, or in which the phenotype is not classifiable as either male or female. The birth of an intersex child, far from being ‘a fairly common phenomenon,’ is actually a rare event, occurring in fewer than 2 out of every 10,000 births.” The Intersex Society of North America rejected raising intersex babies as a third sex with this statement: “Sorry, gender warriors… We believe there are two problems with trying to raise kids in a ‘third gender.’ First, how would we decide who would count in the ‘third gender’? How would we decide where to cut off the category of male and begin the category of intersex, or, on the other side of the spectrum, where to cut off the category of intersex to begin the category of female? Second, and much more importantly, we are trying to make the world a safe place for intersexed kids, and we don’t think labeling them with a gender category that in essence doesn’t exist would help them.” Your flag is a lie. “Having two arms is a lie and if you disagree with this you’re saying that people with birth defects that give them additional limbs don’t have a right to exist!” What the fuck kind of logic is that? Intersex is by definition a defect that exists outside of the norm. Gender may be more up for debate but sex is definitely a binary.

Beautiful, Bitch, and Children: kalichnikov "Terf is a slur used to silence us" dang bitch wish it worked shut the fuck up Source: kalichnikov nermish-ish-blog asked: BORK! What the heck is a terf? Thought it was a trans slur but idk now. paper-mario-wiki answered: trans exclusive radical feminist. basically a shitty person, usually a really angry talk-to-your- manager type woman who believe trans women shouldnt have a say in feminist issues because they arent "real" women. paper-mario-wiki also they tend to reclaim the lesbian D*ke slur a LOT which is weird. criticalfrog| Transwomen are male.

They had activities after lunch and I proposed dancing and relaxation. They loved it. The especially cute thing was one day, I brought a few CDs of Roma music, I'm a big fan so I have quite a few from Django Reinhardt manouche jazz to Roma folk songs. There were Roma children from Kosovo, but I didn't know if the songs were in their language or not. Turned out they were and the kids were just happy! That's one of my fondest memories of that summer. They taught SO the lyrics to the other children (and to me ha!) and also how to dance. As for relaxation, one hyperactive boy came everyday and really appreciated it. Photos Videos Marketplace Pages Places - Fsuwr 22 points 2 days ago Wait for a paper bill then call your ins company.

College, Community, and Definitely: Congratulations to Luis A. Perez on being sworn in as an attorney today! Luis became the first undocumented student to graduate from UCLA School of Law! HOOLSNOTPRISO CHOOLSNOTPRISO SCHOOLSNOTPRISO SCHOOLSNOTPRIS SCHOOLSNOTPRI CHOOLSNOTPR HOOLSNOTP OLSNOT OLN COLS Rp @JustinoMora1: In 2010, Luis became the first undocumented student to graduate from UCLA School of Law (@uclalawschool) and paved the way for others to follow. Luis is a fellow Bruin, an activist and a fighter! Through his advocacy, Luis has helped thousands of young immigrants in California apply for DACA despite not being eligible to apply himself. Luis attended LA Mission College and began his activism in the early 2000s. He played an important role in the early fight for the CA Dream Act, the Federal DreamAct, DACA, and other pro-immigration legislation. Luis did not qualify for DACA because he aged out but that didn't discouraged him from continuing to fight for the immigrant community. I remember the first time I heard the story of an undocumented student studying law at @UCLA and thinking to myself "if we can learn the law, then we can definitely change the law, represent our people in court, and bring about greater change". Luis was one of the reasons why I decided to transfer to UCLA - I knew that it was the breeding ground of undocumented student leaders and organizers. Luis is an inspiration to so many of us and it was an honor to attend his swearing in ceremony! HereToStay Luis was ALSO a co-founder and the first co-chair of IDEAS at UCLA (@ucla_ideas), the first and the official immigrant youth-led organization for undocumented students at UCLA. For over a decade, IDEAS has provided a safe space for undocumented students to seek support, share their stories, and gain valuable leadership skills. cleandreamact dreamact dreamactnow NoDreamNoDeal dreamer immigration undocumentedandunafraid
