Update: 11 year old trans girl lost appeal







The above article is an update.  Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost.  She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender.  She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her.

Please, if you haven’t signed the petition, sign it, reblog it, ask your friends to sign it. We’ve managed to get 40K signatures for a pageant model, we’ve only gotten 11K for a little girl about to have her life ruined.  Lets get on the ball and spread the word.

Sign It.

I literally just repeated the f-word until I ran out of breath.

Let me catch my breath. I may go on a cursing spree again as soon as I get it back.

Seriously people…



Please read, please sign.

Still alive post-graduation, if a little dazed. Portland tomorrow. Then, more.

Kavinsky’s “Nightcall,” from the “Drive” soundtrack, set to the opening scene of “Risky Business.” All kinds of hell yes.

I just wrong a long rambling post

and then realized that I’m a crazy sick person and deleted it. I have strep throat, yes, but also I’m pretty sure my head is full of, like, horchata or something. I know. It doesn’t even make sense. Haven’t even taken my sleeping pills.

Anyway, I’m about to be off tumblr for a moment, graduating from college and recovering from le sickness, but I just wanted to write a couple things first. To remind myself, mostly:

I am grateful.
I am reflecting.
I am proud of all that I’ve done in college.
I am humble, and I have a lot to learn.
I am still striving and changing.
I am still growing.
I am lucky and surrounded by love.
I am giving love to those around me.

This just made me so happy. I am now going to have a good day.

"But most of all, stop thinking that what people so loathingly refer to as the “friendzone” is some sort of purgatory women put “nice guys” into. My friendship is not a crappy consolation prize that you’re left with if I deny you a sexual relationship– and my body is not your reward for good behavior."

"Advice for young feminists? Do something else besides feminism. I’m serious. The feminist blogosphere is oversaturated in my opinion. Please, find something else you love and take feminist theory there. It gets lonely over here in tech and video games – I have a great crew of other feminists but we are a little island in a vast sea. We need more feminist minded business bloggers, feminist theory wielding finance bloggers. Labor organizers with a feminist lens blogging. Can you imagine what Deadspin (the sports blog) would look like with a feminist on staff? Restructure writes about science, tech and feminism – join her! Publish a blog doing literary criticism with a feminist lens! Take on the NYT! Talk about class issues and feminism. Whatever it is, apply your feminism in a different space."

this is the quote I mentioned in my earlier work-thoughts dump. at least i think it is.
