When people say “transgender is a term used to describe anyone who acts out of the gender norm” do they realize they are saying every single person on Earth is transgender? Why even have transgender as a word if that were the real meaning? No one acts within the gender norm 100% of the time.
Buy a t-shirt to support Aiden’s FTM Transition Fund. Please share!
This is my fundraiser to help me to afford to transition. That includes getting a gender therapist, buying more masculine clothing, getting a binder that will hide the mounds of flesh on my chest, and, eventually, testosterone. In return, you get this awesome T-Shirt! I’d really appreciate any and all help or support you guys could give me. If you can’t buy one, please reblog. This really means a lot to me. Thanks guys!
Hey there, everyone! I was asked to signal boost this transition fund, so here we are! Pass it along, and consider donating! :)
In a landmark statement, the reigning monarch of the UK and the Commonwealth has announced her support for a gay charity
A leading high street clothing retailer has put its staff discount policy “under review”, after a PinkNews investigation revealed that it was “indirectly discriminating” against gay and lesbian staff members.
A report from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey conducted by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality, found that transgender people faced double the rate of unemployment of the general population, with 63 percent of the transgender people surveyed reporting they experienced a serious act of discrimination that majorly affected their ability to sustain themselves. These numbers are even worse for trans people of color, especially trans women of color, the deaths of whom have been deemed a “state of emergency.”
Trans women have been saddled with the responsibility of taking on trans-exclusionary feminists for far too long—but it’s not their issue to deal with alone.
