The internet has been shitstorming lately. It’s a familiar sort of shitstorm, the kind that arises over and over again in response to a far worse thing. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. If you’re not familiar with the feminism and the GL…b…. (t?) communities then you probably don’t know that, despite talking a great deal about […]


It’s difficult to write this. Many of us push ourselves. Hard. The things we fight for are precious and denied us so easily, so effortlessly. The pain and suffering we face is awful. Oppression is no joke. It shatters lives. So we fight, battle, educate, speak out and work to fix society or even break […]


Crossposted to The Spectrum Cafe. Ever since I started transition, ever since I even started to explore my dissonance, people have walked all over me. People have hurt me, used me, fucked me over and said horrible things about me and the other women like me. When I started blogging, when I raised my voice […]


We don’t like seeing those we love hurt. It’s a completely natural response. We’re tied to these people, be they family, friends, partners, whatever. Our happiness and theirs are linked. Closely and tightly. When they hurt, we hurt for them. When they smile, we feel happy too. When they cry, we want to cry. When […]


One Day A boy met a girl. She seemed very familiar, not to the point of being strange or creepy. She did like to stare at him, Which he found a bit odd. But it wasn’t a serious problem.


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) […]


I Hate Eating

21Jun10

That title’s a little rough isn’t it? Food isn’t bad in and of itself. I love tastes and I enjoy feeling full. I get hungry like lots of people do and I still eat (although I forget to sometimes). What I hate about food is the pain. Some people might ask, “what’s painful about food?” […]


Warning: Some of the material described in this post may contain triggering descriptions of an abusive relationship that involved a rape. I tried to keep the description abstract but it may still be a problem for some. Some of the material in here may not be appropriate for younger readers as it describes in detail […]


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 […]


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 […]
