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 […]


This post has been guest posted at Harlot’s Parlour Chasers. Admirers. Fetishists. Words that often create a very emotional response from trans folk and many other groups for whom such things apply to. If you’re not in the know (and you probably aren’t, considering my audience) there’s a bit of explaining to do here. Let’s […]


Update: Going over the comments and other suggestions, I’m finding that Currently Abled (CA) is so far the best one out of all (including better than CAB/M/S). Further comments should discuss CA as I’m no longer in favor of CAB/M or CAB/M/S over just CA. There’s something that twigs me out a bit about the […]


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 […]


Mild Clarification: Some people were a bit confused and thought that conceptual sexuality and physical sexuality are invariably separate. Actually, it’s quite possible to have both. So say if you were attracted to breasts and vagina only, but also could only find folks who are women attractive (so say, you’d not find a pre op/pre […]


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, […]


Addendum: Replaced the ableist word stupid with fucked in the title. Oh look, another post about Roman Polanski. *sighs* Rape apologists are sort of like the really out-of-touch-with-reality conspiracy theorists. Only, they go in the opposite direction. Instead of making up ridiculous bullshit, stringing together barely coherent arguments based on a complete and utter disavowal […]


Crossposted at The Transadvocate This post has been added to the Activist Modus Operandi Series as a precursor meta activism post. ~KH The Internet is a wild place. It also provides one of the most remarkable resources to any social movement: the capacity to integrate resources and efforts and share narrative and information rapidly. But […]
