We’ve all heard the spiel. Some have given it during more failtastic times. And even if you haven’t had it directed at you and haven’t said it, chances are you’ve witnessed it. The Nice Guy™ spiel. Most of us have known at least one. Some of us are one or were one. Many of us (women) […]


Activists work together. Very rarely is there a lone wolf thing going on with activists. We can be pretty social (mostly by necessity, trying to do this shit alone is hard). Quite often a community forms around bloggers, lobbyists, small organizations and non profits. This community coordinates the efforts of individual activists, aids them, supports […]


Quest post from Quinnae, for your viewing pleasure: I’m Quinnae Moongazer and I’ll be your bloggy type person for today. My identity is, like most people’s, ever a work in progress and I’ll be pretty damn awesome if I’d only finish it. But I’m a trans woman trying to make her dreams come true and […]


This post has been crossposted as a guest post at Questioning Transphobia here. There was an incident a few weeks ago. It didn’t happen to my face but it still was a direct invasion of my privacy. First, some background: If you don’t know me, I’m polyamorous. I date, love and am intimate with multiple […]

In tradition of my previous post of building trans women up and decentering cis folk’s oppression of us for a while (as well as avoiding the stress inducing shitstorm of anger toxicity that I get when I let rage consume the fuck out of me, as I have been doing lately), I’ve been working on […]


I’m going to start this post with one statement to all of my sisters out there: You are beautiful. No exceptions. No dismissals. You. Are. Beautiful. What brought this on? Well besides the obvious (that more of us need to be built up instead of being torn down) I recently spotted a search term that […]


As a note, this is a general statement for folks with privilege in a given area. Which means it probably applies to you even if the specific examples given below don’t because you lack those privileges. Don’t get hung up on the details, think of the message. I consider this a For The Uninformed post, […]


This post was originally published Sept 03, 2009 here. (As a note: This applies to womanism too, as womanism only fully expands the women’s rights lens to issues of race but still leaves trans women in the dust more often than not.) I’m sure we all have a pretty good idea of the cardinal elements […]


This post was originally published August 21, 2009 here. In case you didn’t know (and you probably do) I am a MtF transsexual (by official definitions). By less official (my own) definitions I am a badass awesome genderfuckery factory who was born with a certain body and figured out that oh shit, that body fucking […]
