White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
I dearly wish that people would view their bodies as they view flowers…
Skin patches? Birthmarks?
Scars? Stretch marks?
Freckles? Moles? Acne scars?
Missing a few pieces?
handsome as ever~
Feel like you just look weird?
you’re fantastic looking~
This is quite possibly the most inspiring thing I have ever seen.
I love this, because it gets to one of the things I say a lot—bodies are diverse. And not in the “they’re slightly different shades of pink to tan and slightly different shapes of hourglass” Dove commercial sense. Bodies are all over the freakin’ place. Both in appearance and function. Judging them against a single standard—any single standard, even an unconventional one—is going to leave people out, not because they’re “wrong” but because they’re daisies instead of bluebells.
being the trans nonbinary non-monogamous bisexual cousin is a lot different from being the gay cousin
I do not need to justify eating. I do not get to decide if I have done anything to deserve it. There will never be a reason I don’t deserve it.
I am a human. I need to eat. It is a basic human need and there is no debating that. I need to eat.
wow i really like this song i think i’m gonna listen to it 1 maybe 60 more times
We’re pleased to make your acquaintance. Allow us to introduce ourselves.
One of us is a trans lady and the other is a cis dude. Both of us are Korean Americans and adoptees. We also happen to love each other quite a bit. So we decided to jot down our thoughts and experiences along the way as our relationship unfolds.
We felt it would be important to share a little bit about our relationship in hopes of raising more visibility for other couples like us. There is limited awareness for trans-affirming relationships and that means couples like us remain largely invisible and misunderstood. So we decided to share a little bit of what we’re all about.
We don’t know all there is to know about trans and cis people in love. And we’re far from being the “perfect couple.” But we created this space in an ever-hopeful attempt to highlight one possibility of what a trans-affirming relationship looks like between a trans lady and cis dude. Plus, we hope more people like us will come forward and share their own love stories.
We invite you to stick around and read our upcoming posts. Follow us. Like or repost something. Submit a question. We can’t wait to connect with you.
Thanks for stopping by. And remember, you are loveworthy.
an adoptee activist for LGBT rights that i greatly respect and admire (who also has the greatest FB photo/gif comments of anyone i know!) andy marra has finally joined tumblr~!
she also happened to write one of the most touching reunion stories i’ve ever read (definitely cried reading it) about how her korean mom gave her the courage to transition (if you haven’t read it yet, CLICK THE LINK AND READ IT!!) so i am looking forward to her new writing project with her love, whom she affectionately refers to as “the dude.” i love this idea and i can’t wait to read more from you, welcome to tumblr!

Probably not. There are folks I wish weren’t in the world, but generally they’re heads of multinational corporations, so taking them out wouldn’t actually stop the awful things their organizations do, and that seems like a waste.
But come to think of it, I would probably ask my best friend if she wanted any of the horrible creeps in her life permanently removed, and if she did then I’d use it for that. So provisionally yes - if it would make life better for someone personally close to me and they thought killing the person was the surest way to make things better.
find people with whom you can be angry and critical together,
but also, importantly, silly!
