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].

Beautiful, Clothes, and Family: f every pork chop were perfect we wouldnit hayelhotdogs preludeinz: jasminekor: I think one of my favourite things about “Steven Universe”, and one of the things I find most touching and personally affirming, is the relationship between Rose Quartz and Greg. I mean, here’s Rose, who’s represented as this powerful, intelligent, charismatic, beautiful woman, respected as both a warrior and a leader.  She travels to Earth and decides to spend her life there, and in 6000 years, the human she decides is most interesting, most engaging, most beautiful…is Greg.   Greg is a doofus.  He’s bald.  He’s fat.  He’s a slob with no sense of style or grooming.  He’s practically homeless.  He’s a failed rock and roll star whose dreams of fame and fortune ended with him running a small town car wash and living in the back of an ancient van. In any other show, he would be the loser of the cast, the fuck-up, the somewhat lovable, helpless goofball who can’t be counted on for anything. But Rose thought he was beautiful. It’s something of a sitcom parody; the dimwitted, ugly, slovenly husband with the beautiful, intelligent wife.  Fred and Wilma, Archie and Edith, Peter and Lois, Homer and Marge.  But Rose and Greg’s relationship isn’t like that.  Even in my favourite of those relationships, that of Marge and Homer, Homer is presented as more than a bit of a jerk.  Oh, he’s a fundamentally decent man who genuinely loves his family and treasures his wife, but he’s also selfish, thoughtless, more than occasionally neglectful, lazy, and self-centered.  And more than that, in those shows, the husband is really the main character.  Most of the wife’s role is reacting to his antics.  But that’s not Rose and Greg’s story. Greg is a good man.  Not just a decent guy under the jerky exterior, but a truly and fundamentally good man.  He stands up to his misogynist buddy.  He adores and encourages his son in every way.  He is kind and giving to everyone he meets.  He works hard, even though it’s a job that he never wanted and that has taken the place of his dream.  Speaking of that, even though he’s never seen even a lick of the stardom he dreamed of, Greg has never lost sight of his ambitions.  He still plays music, still sings, still performs, still writes albums.  Greg may never make it as a rock star, but he will never stop trying.  This is what Rose saw.  This is what Rose, one of the most powerful and respected warriors and generals of her people, came to love. In a world where success and worth are measured primarily in material gains and career-based achievements, Greg is a reminder of what’s truly important.  In the show, his failed music career, his chubby build, his sloppy clothes, his poverty…they don’t matter.  What’s emphasised is the true, human beauty of Greg; the warmth, the kindness, the courage, the imagination, the dedication to art and devotion to family.  It’s a reminder to all of us who have been pushed to be “successful”, been hassled about when we were “going to get serious”…that even if we are living in poverty, even if we have no real career, even if we’re not conventionally attractive or haven’t achieved all we’ve wanted to…we still have value.  We still have beauty.  And we are still loved. oh man I have been wanting to ramble about greg for a while now. because my favourite thing about Steven is that his stereotypically feminine traits—the fact that he’s empathetic and caring, the fact that he’s a bit of a diva, the fact that he’s creative and musical and sensitive—none of that comes from Rose. Rose is a towering pink goddess who is shaped like a woman and named after a flower, but what she passes on to Steven is righteousness and conviction and a desire to protect humanity. Visually, Rose is this towering icon of femininity, but she’s also a goddamn War Queen. Demonstrably she’s more than a little out of touch with human emotions, she’s occasionally a bit crass and distant and superior. Emphatically not human, but also the more stereotypically masculine, compared to Greg. As far as the softer parts of Steven’s personality, that’s all Greg. And as noted above, Greg is just a beautiful human being. I adore him and I love this post 3 3 3

Dogs, Head, and Marriage: My wife and lowned two dogs that we had owned before we met and brought into the marriage. Her dog was a pit bull/Labrador cross named Zack, and he hated me. When our daughter was born,/ said to the wife, if he so much as nips at the baby, he's gone. We brought our daughter home in a car seat, and both dogs sniffed and licked her, tails wagging. Ihad to pull Zack away from her because he wouldn't stop licking her. Zack immediately became my daughter's protector, and when she was lying on a blanket on the floor, he always had to have one foot on the blanket. Zack loved my daughter immensely, and when she became a little older always walked her to bed, and then slept on the bed with her. He somehow knew whenever it was time to go upstairs, and he would wait at the foot of the stairs for her, and then follow her up to bed. Zack was poisoned by some dirtbag neighbor kids, and we had one of the worst days of our lives. Watching my daughter say goodbye to him as he laid still on the kitchen floor, my wife and / were both sobbing. At 8:00 that night, my daughter walked to the stairs to go to bed. At that moment, all three of us realized what was about to happen. After five years, she didn't have Zack to accompany her upstairs. She looked at her mother and me with a look of horror and panic. It was at that moment that my dog, who loved my daughter dearly, but was not in Zack's league, stood up, walked over to her, and nudged her with his head. He put his foot on the stairs, and looked up at her. They walked up to bed, with my daughter holding tightly to his neck. For the next six years, until he died. Sam waited for her by the stairs each night. mickeyjperez: michaeldirnt: Why…. Why would you do this to my heart
