Culturally, socially, and physically, we assign humans a gender based on appearance. Popular culture has very rigid definitions of ‘male’ and ‘female’ and imposes them on today’s youth at any costs. Seventeen, Teen Beat, the list goes on. How to make the cute boy in…
As someone else has mentioned, I’m uncomfortable with the language about ghettos and barrios and the reference to gender-variant people as sons and daughters, but apart from that, there are good points here.
I will make this point, and tag it, as many times as is needed. Because seriously, THAT IS NOT DEMISEXUALITY. That is the societally accepted version of female behavior. Does that explanation fit certain, if not many, demis? Yes. Does that explanation fit all demis? NO. Does…
Is there a general consensus on GPD spoilers now that the game’s out (as in, no spoilers at all, or is it fine as long as it’s under a ‘read more’)? I don’t want to end up spoiling anyone if I end up trying to make sense of stuff here.
… Not that I really understand things right now as it is. This game.

Anonymous asked: hi, i don’t know a lot about asexuality and i’m wondering: does asexual never feel the need to have sex? or they do but only when they’re very close to someone? or idk, in another circumstances? i hope i don’t sound rude or anything, i’m just curious and want…
A very interesting read about the very public opinion of transgender children and their bodies.
From the article: ”You guys, this is creepy. We are having a public conversation about whether children have the “right” or “wrong” genitals. We are allowed to do this, publicly, without any consequence–as long as those children are transgender. This is more than creepy. It is deeply unsettling. It frightens me.”
I’ve been pretty fucking unsettled by the responses that antivian received from some of y’all on twitter. I hear from other guys that they’re good guys who aren’t “like that” a pretty fair amount, and I see men tell women discussing sexism this all the time. This is really not an acceptable thing to do! I get it, your feelings are hurt. But I’m going to make a suggestion right now that I hope y’all are going to listen to if you really mean what you say about being a decent human being.
Next time you’re hanging out with your guy friends and someone says something sexist, address it. Stop bringing this issue to women who know that there are decent dudes out there. Stop telling the people who don’t need to hear it how special and wonderful you are and take your issue to the folks who need to hear it. Speak up. Whether you take your buddy aside and talk to him privately or do it right when it goes down, do something. Don’t just sit on your ass and whine about how you’re really great, do something about it. This is what actually being an “ally” is about. We have access to predominantly male spaces where some men say shit that ranges from questionable to downright awful, and instead of assuming that your friend is just kidding around because “he wouldn’t do something like that” when he jokes about sexual assault, talk to his ass about it.
If you don’t think that misogyny is a problem in the gaming community (like it is everywhere else, tbh) then you are being fed a big ol’ turd wrapped with a silver ribbon. I am going to break a couple of these down.
“Asexuals are very vulnerable to a certain kind of rape culture — the type where in a romantic relationship you owe sex to your partner, because refusing to have sex is bad and wrong and abusive. And in asexual communities, there’s a lot of talk about compromise — essentially, having sex with your partner even though you yourself don’t have an intrinsic desire for it. As you can imagine, this can go to very bad places. This is another discussion a lot of sex-positive spaces don’t manage very well, because there’s often very little empathy for the asexual partner (or, in related discussions, the partner with less sexual desire) in that situation. In fact, they are frequently demonised when this comes up.”—
How the fuck is not having sex with your partner abusive? Urgh I can’t even- Why would anyone even think that? If you don’t want to have sex with your partner then that is yoru choice and they should respect that. Relationships aren’t just about sex, y’know.
My mother told me that if one of the partners refuses sex in a relationship that partner is being abusive and just let it happen (translation: your partner is allowed to rape you) after I told her I was asexual. Then she was worried I might have been sexually assaulted/raped. Laughing bitterly over here right now. :|
Safe Place to Pee is compiling a directory of gender neutral/single occupancy bathrooms on college campuses across the states. Being able to locate a gender neutral restroom is a necessity that many trans* people unfortunately have to go without.With this blog, I hope to help those who may need to locate these facilities for whatever reason, whether it be: worrying about passing, feeling uncomfortable in the right or wrong bathroom, wanting to feel safe, or even if you’d rather have full privacy while using the restroom. Regardless, everyone deserves a safe place to pee!
Because I am only one person, on one campus I cannot simply do this alone. So if you’d like to have your campus represented feel free to submit your findings with their locations. The main page will feature campuses in Virginia; all other listings can me found on the state directory page.
