Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused

Right? Lol - Rachel

Yes because fucking, and breeding with a non-white person is soooo racist of me!! You stupid fucks!

We aren’t saying that’s why you’re racist. We’re saying that it DOESNT EXCLUDE you from being racist. It’s like saying “I can’t be racist because my best friend is black!”

Dear Professor [name],

My name is [Preferred name], and I will be attending your course [blank] on [days] at [time] this [term]. I am transgender and have not yet legally changed my name. On your roster is my legal name, [Legal name]. I would greatly appreciate it if you refer to me as [Preferred name] and use [pronouns] when referring to me. Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to starting your course next week.

Sincerely,

~[Preferred name]

No.  Sorry, but in a formal academic setting, you get referred to by whatever YOUR formal, legal status entitles you to be called, not your made up title.  Grow up.

As a person who has had friends outed by their names in public places because they couldn’t yet afford to legally change them

FUCK YOU

As a person who had to spend a fair amount of money during a time in my life when I was really poor to get my name changed (much less my driver’s license, and later, my UNEXPIRED PASSPORT, so I could travel unmolested like any cis person)

FUCK YOU

As a person who has had trans students who would have been outed had I not pulled them aside and asked them about preferred names and pronouns

FUCK YOU

As a trans person who is a member of a group which is systematically and violently oppressed, especially trans women of color, so much so thatliterally hundreds of trans people turn up dead as a result of transphobic violence each year

FUCK YOU

As a person who lives in fear of transphobic violence, of being outed in a place where I do not have an escape route, or being injured and denied aid (such as medical care due to transphobia)

FUCK YOU.

I am shaking with rage right now. And I have never had to call anyone out in a fandom before. But fuck you. Fuck your insensitive, transphobic garbage. 

This is not a fucking game. This is people’s fucking lives. The fact you don’t have enough compassion to simply address people how they want to be addressed — without any consideration about the legal, social, and economic barriers that exist for trans people to change ANY DOCUMENTATION — and the arrogant, ignorant assumption we should “grow up” — tells me a lot about the kind of person you are.

One thing I hate about being married, and this is the only thing that really seems to bother me, is now everyone asks us when we’re having kids.

Like I’m 20, he’s 23. I’m in a certificate program and he’s about to get out of the marines. We’d like to have some fun together as a married couple for a while before we’re responsible for small humans for the rest of our lives.

I see people saying “How can this happen? Isn’t this America?”

Police action at peaceful UC Davis Occupy protest 

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.
