Three years later, my body looks exactly how I pictured it to look when I was younger. It has been a fun journey, so far. Here’s to many more years of growth as a human.
This is beautiful and perfect and EXACTLY as the world should be.
"99.9% of the violence is being perpetrated by men and somehow, men have had the luxury of being able to say, ‘It’s a women’s issue.’ And that’s a deeply mysterious thing, why that is." (x)
So. Fucking. True.
In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.
Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”
i wouldn’t even know half of these people weren’t dudes.

THE THIRD AND FOURTH ONE OH MY GOSH *heart eyes emoji*
This should be a book for kids.
in every language.
100,000 notes and I wonder how many people realise this line was improvised by a 7 year old
I think most of us guessed it when we saw the “people from liverpool” bit.
When did we start hating CIS people? And like….why? Doesn’t being trans mean that you’re working to fix yourself and not other people? Being trans is depressing as fuck sometimes, people hurt me for legit no reason except that I’m trans. So why would I hurt them back?
They’re comfortable, they’re happy with themselves. just like I’m working to be comfortable and happy with myself.
Two wrongs don’t make a right,
Love is love. Who cares what gender anyone is. We should care more about Pizza and love than rotten tomatoes and hate.
In the BDSM community it may be hard to tell where the line between kinky consensual play and abuse is crossed. Let this be a rule of thumb: trust your intuition. If you feel something is wrong, IT PROBABLY IS. If you feel you are being mistreated, SAY SOMETHING.

i have experienced every single one of these listed under “Abuser” All by the same person a few years back. It was hell and will tear one down completely. It took me a long time to heal and get past it. i was extremely close to giving up on exploring D/s altogether and had to take a long break. PLEASE if you experience any of these things, speak up, find someone to talk to. The Abuser will try to make you feel guilty or that you are disrespecting them and the relationship if you seek advice or help. That is all part of their abusive game as well. Discretion and privacy in a relationship is one thing. But a true and good Dom/Domme will not forbid you to reach out to others in the community or otherwise.
Please be safe.
If these things are happening to you then please come to me for help, or support. I promise I’ll help you in anyway I can.
