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 […]


Addendum: I’ve heard tell that that there were some assertions Chally was white on twitter, apparently in a convo with me (wtf?). I didn’t catch this (nor can I seem to find the damn tweets regarding it) so I really gotta wonder what the fuck people are smoking to think I was involved in that. […]


Updated at the bottom (twice), considering the updates only further drive home the point that Shakesville is an enemy to trans women and Melissa can’t handle a privilege call out without crying cis privileged tears. One of the worst transphobic haters in feminist history died in 2010. Mary Daly. I’m not one that gets pleasure […]


So I did something kind of foolish. I asked for advice on how to deal with my depression on twitter. I was a bit desperate really, I’ve been reeling and I don’t have a whole lot of help here. So I asked. I got a good chunk of good advice from other folks with depression. […]


MORE update! Turns out that Bil never really learned the meaning of too little, too late. Seriously? It took massive fisking and your own contributors threatening to leave for you to realize that trans hate language wasn’t okay? Really? It took your fauxpology being rejected blogosphere-wide? I really can’t see much sincerity here. It looks […]

I’m sure we all have a pretty good idea of the cardinal elements […]


This post was originally published August 31, 2009 here. In a discussion that originally was built around Kennedy’s pragmatic (but sucky) dropping of the trans community in the ENDA during the Bush era (on the post about Kennedy on Alas, A Blog), the topic eventually turned to the visibility of nonbinary folk as a part […]


This post was originally published August 13, 2009 here. Welcome to clusterfuck city. In order to give you folks a little bit of background here, there was a bit of an incident involving Pam’s House Blend and a wonderful concept known as privilege enabling (or as I like to call it “oppression collaboration”. More poetic […]


This post was originally published August 10, 2009 here. I finally found my niche. Angry trans girl. After all, I am pretty fucking pissed off when I write in here. I’m not always pissed off though, it’s just that blogging reminds me of all the stupid awful shit people do to trans women, among ten […]
