Crossposted to The Spectrum Cafe. There’s a funny thing in the United States (and in a few other places too). It’s called a right to privacy. It isn’t perfect. After all, any right will have some limitations to account for clashes of rights. But for the most part, we all have a right to not […]


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 […]


Let’s face facts. We are all human and we have limited levels of effort and energy to put into things. Activists are no different. An activist will be unable to address every issue in the world, no matter how worthy, due to these energy constraints. Feminism is, in and of itself, a specialization of egalitarianism […]


As a warning, some parts of this post are a bit appropriative of the lives of trans women of color, who face significantly more violence and danger than white trans women. For that, I deeply apologize. Like all posts of mine where I have made serious mistakes, I will not edit or remove it but […]


This has all been said before. But I might as well offer some repetition because people aren’t getting it. There’s been a whole lot of talk about marriage lately. I’m sure you’ve all noticed the flurry of activity on the part of the GLB…(t) community to get legal marriage extended to gay couples all over […]


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 August 28, 2009 here. The “R” Word Series on Rape is a series of posts wherein individuals (not just me) describe their situations, challenging common views on healing and victim mentalities and challenging common conventions among society at large on rape. These posts may be immensely triggering. I would advise […]


This post was originally published August 17, 2009 here. I also guest posted this one on Deeply Problematic. Much thanks to RMJ for letting me rant in her space. XD I thought I was going to wait on this one till tomorrow, but then I read through one of the most clear, beautifully written posts […]


This post was originally published August 15, 2009 here. For those that remember the last post about people finding cisgendered offensive based on some of the most fallacious and stupid reasoning applicable, don’t forget, trans people are just as capable of fallacious silliness. When in comes to fallacious arguments and pseudoscience, no one does it […]
