getting spoken to as if i’m straight by straight people who assume everyone is straight, subsequently feeling like the world’s most useless and irritated secret agent
I initially wanted to have just a book giveaway BECAUSE OMG WTF in Gone Girl and needed someone to commiserate/panic with me. Two of my best friends got the Chris Colfer books for me…and I just want the winner to be somebody who enjoyed them as much as I did.
FYI - this giveaway is limited only to US citizens.
What you will get:
- a flower wreath (made be me!)
- unworn black and white striped leggings (size M)
- a cute ass journal
- a pair of fake eyelashes
- a pair of glasses
- various bracelets and a ring (from FOREVER21)
- a skull made of out of coal (?)
- various lip stuffs (I want to stress that although they might be open, they are unused)
- new red Chinese Mary-Janes (size 7.5-8)
- The Feminine Mistake, Gone Girl, Struck by Lightning, and the Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell.
I will pick the winner on AUGUST 22!
You do NOT have to be following me and ONLY reblogs count.
Good luck - if you have any questions/comments, don’t hesitate to ask.
today I honoured my deluxe fatassery by not hiding and showing lots of stretch marks and #VBO
Not all women are the owners of a uterus, and not all owners of a uterus are women. A transgender man—that is, a man who was assigned female at birth—may very well have a uterus, may become pregnant, and may very well need the same access to reproductive health options as your average cisgender woman. The same can be said for non-binary individuals who were assigned female at birth. As people who don’t identify as a woman or a man (though they may identify themselves as both, neither, or a combination of the two), some may feel that this language erases their identity or leaves them out. Yes, these people may have a uterus—but it’s not a “lady part.”
While there’s little doubt that women make up the largest segment of uterus-owning individuals, this name further ostracizes oft-overlooked members of society like trans men and non-binary individuals who were assigned female at birth. To exclude them in this, an organization aimed at educating the public on the issue of reproductive health, would seem to negate the organization’s stated goals by erasing identities and perpetuating the already stressful and exclusionary culture these individuals are forced to inhabit.
