Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?

That quote sounds like something out of an onion article oh my god I can’t believe people are this awful
You should help and spread the word too

zeromorph:

if you ever, ever, ever, ever decide to ignore the pronouns that a trans* person has clearly specified and instead refer to them as “it”

  • stop
  • stop
  • stop
  • punch yourself in the face
  • STOP
  • isolate yourself
  • reevaluate your decisions
  • punch yourself in the face again
  • get a clue
  • return
  • one more punch for good measure!
  • say something else

if this process does not appeal to you there is an alternate option:

  • stop
  • walk away
  • keep walking
  • no that’s not far enough
  • keep going
  • walk into the ocean please
  • there you go
  • no you need to keep walking
  • okay good now stay right there
  • thanks

thank you GOODBYE

Attention: Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, pansexuals, trisexuals, asexuals, transgender, transsexuals, genderqueer, cisgenders and the rest of the human spectrum.


This is Rad. Rad identifies as a lesbian, and she is 100% female. Recently she has taken the leap into telling one of the biggest secrets of her life.

She was a male to female transgender.

Yes, she was born male and identifies now as female and has recently completed ALL the surgeries in becoming who she is now: Rad, the woman we all know today.

Since Rad has come out as mtf on tumblr, with the love and support of her (not yet, but more than likely soon) girlfriend, Chelsea Skye, she as well as her girlfriend have received nothing but hate and threats from the anons of tumblr.

She is being told how she isn’t a woman, and how she is confused and needs help and being disrespected just for being who she is.

Her girlfriend on the other hand has been getting messages calling Rad horrible names, and telling Chelsea how she is a fake lesbian for dating a mtf.

THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

If someone identifies as female. They are female. If someone identifies as male, they are male. If you don’t understand it, ask.

DO NOT ATTACK SOMEONE FOR BEING WHO THEY ARE. IT IS THEIR LIFE NOT YOURS.

On tumblr in the trans* community we’ve seen too many good people fall in fear of being who they are. Nobody deserves to hear these things, and nobody deserves to be told they are something they are not, and absolutely nobody deserves to be attacked by grey faces with nothing but ignorance and negativity to say.

Rad, you are an absolutely beautiful woman, and you and Chelsea are absolutely the most beautiful couple I’ve ever seen. Don’t ever think you aren’t woman enough, don’t ever think that you will never be enough; because you are. I sincerely apologize for the ignorance of tumblr users and the way that they are treating you and Chelsea.

Please do not let the anons of tumblr get to you or make you feel down, scared or alone. We as the tumblr trans* community and allies have your back.

We promise.

November 20th: Transgender Day of Remembrance. 

It is a day to remember and pay tribute those who have been killed as a result of transphobia, or the hatred and fear of trans* people, and aims to help to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.

When everyone holds their Trans* Day of Remembrance vigil this month, please don’t forget about CeCe McDonald. She’s in prison right now for fighting back & surviving a brutal attack that could have put her on this very list. We need to show support for our sister.

By assuming that my desire to be female is merely some sort of femininity fetish or sexual perversion, [the media] are essentially making the case that women have no worth beyond the extent to which they can be sexualized.

“The Office of Human Rights transgender and gender identity non-discrimination campaign will appear throughout DC in Fall and Winter of 2012. The campaign will feature five transgender or gender non-conforming people in a series of five ads. The campaign aims to increase understanding of the community, reduce discriminatory incidents in DC and increase reporting of discrimination when it happens.”

The District of Columbia Office of Human Rights (OHR) has launched a groundbreaking Transgender and Gender Identity Respect Campaign that advocates are calling the first government-funded campaign focused exclusively on the betterment of transgender and gender non-conforming people.
The five campaign ads feature actual community members, and will appear citywide on bus shelters in the fall and winter of 2012.
D.C. residents and visitors who see an ad are encouraged to photograph it and post to social media using the hashtag #TransRespect, in hopes the campaign’s mission expands beyond D.C.
