ChaosLife: Trans* Trip-Up

It needed to be said, since I’m tired of every conversation about our comic (on other sites) devolving into discussion of my crotch giblets.

Of course, that comes with the huge caveat that I am personally an open book, but that’s only when asked directly and within context (i.e., the subject of my crotch has been brought up, by us). Otherwise, it’s needlessly invasive, objectifying, and rarely comes from a place of genuine understanding. And that’s my liberal take on the subject. Imagine a trans* person who is as private as any other person or isn’t “out” or experiences dysphoria with their bodies.

This is a lesson lots of people need to learn: don’t be a Katie Couric.

such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.

It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.

I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.

MTV And Logo To Premiere 'Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word'

transitiontransmission:

MTV and Logo will premiere Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word, a documentary following seven transgender youths and the issues they face.

On October 17, MTV and Logo will simultaneously premiere “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word,” a documentary produced by “Orange Is the New Black” cast member Laverne Cox. The hour-long documentary follows the lives of seven transgender youths. They hail from New York, New Orleans and Baltimore and range in age from 12 to 24 years old, but they share common obstacles and joys.

Cox, an activist for transgender issues as well as an actress, also acts as host for the documentary, walking viewers through the difficulties of coming out, how race plays into the equation, bullying, violence and familial and social support.

Viewers will meet Kye, a Brooklyn man who was the first transgender Division I basketball player ever, as well as college freshman Ari, an 18-year-old man taking his first steps into campus life. Zoey, a 12-year-old navigating life at her new school in California after school administrators refused to acknowledge her as a girl, is also featured, among other true life stories.

After the documentary’s premiere, Logo and MTV.com will host an hour-long “Trans Forum,” hosted by Cox and SuChin Pak. Alongside the subjects of the documentary, Cox will field questions from audience members and those tuning in via social media.

The documentary was produced as part of MTV’s Look Different campaign, a multi-year initiative to identify and fight biases, whether they be based in gender, sexual orientation or race.

“Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word” will air on October 17 and 7 p.m. ET.

I’m gonna fucking go postal on 4chan I s2g

A woman can’t even think or talk about wanting equal rights/treatment without consequences, and they wonder why we still need feminism smfh

”In a textbook example of why feminism isn’t just a women’s issue”

What a weird take on it. More like ”in a textbook example of males reacting violently and threateningly to put a woman back in her place.”

  • Me: Did you find everything ok today Sir?
  • Male Customer: Yeah everything was fine, but prices on the cat food just keep going up! I remember when it was only .30 a can! But I bet you don't, you're like what...20?
  • Me: 21, but yes.
  • Male Customer: God you're young, I bet you'd never go out with someone my age, unless you have some Daddy issues
  • Me: ...........
  • Male Customer: so do you like working here? Are you in school?
  • Me: Your total today is 21.38 Sir.
  • Male Customer: Are you seeing anyone?
  • Me: ......Cash or Credit Sir?
  • Male Customer: When do you get off work?
  • Male co-worker comes up next to me: Everything ok?
  • Male Customer: Yeah we're fine
  • Male Co-worker: Actually I think you're being really rude
  • Male Customer: What are you her boyfriend?
  • Male co-worker: No I'm not. And even if I was, why would it matter? Her job is to ring up your items, make sure your shopping experience was pleasant and give you change. You're making really creepy comments to a young woman you don't even know at a cash register, it's not ok.
  • Male Customer: You can't talk to me that way! I want to speak to your manager.
  • Me: It's really ok, everything is Ok
  • Male Co-worker: No no, I'll go ahead and call our FEMALE boss up here to address any grievances you might have *Sir*
  • Male Customer: slams down 25 dollars grabs his bags and leave*
  • Male Co-worker: You don't even have to take anyone's shit here. If anyone even looks at you funny, pick up that phone, call a manager, call me, call another co-worker and it will be handled. You are a valued employee and you deserve to feel safe and respected at work by *everyone*
