a cynicism has been writing itself into my skin and i am sick to death of it
well transness isnt an innate state of being n ppl arent Born Trans…its not biological. gender & sex are culturally relative an so are non-normative gender identities. no transness is the same n that kinda lends to the point that the process of transness (and cisness) is a personal decision ppl have the ability to make. u pick ur pronouns yknow u pick ur name and presentation and the whole thing is essentially a performance to socially code yrself as the sex/gender that u are comfortable being positioned as. the idea that transness is a fixed or innate biological/neurological quality is an invention of western heteropatriarchal power structures like the medical-science industry, which perpetuates state ideologies & status quos (like whiteness & cisness & hetness & neurotypicality) and stigmatizes ppls that the state does not care abt. to say that you can choose to be trans is saying that someone would WANT to be trans, or rather, NOT be cis, which is NOT institutionally cis-het approved OR approved by your doctor.
but its just ideology.

Israel puts on a show for the world’s media by reminding them over and over again how they tell Palestinian civilians to “evacuate” (which is an insult in itself since they’re not allowed to leave Gaza due to the illegal blockade), but the reality on the ground is that they tell Palestinians ‘we will kill you no matter where you go - you are our targets’ by bombing all the places they’re taking shelter in - ambulances, hospitals and UN schools.

i have a really hard time making fun of things that only women do or are heavily associated with women, even if i personally think its silly or uncool. it just makes me uncomfortable to add to the shame women feel for having interests (especially those that are not validated by men)
TWOCC was established almost one year ago after the brutal murder of Islan Nettles, a black trans woman in New York City. Since then we have brought visibility to this case and uplifted the narratives of struggle and resilience from our communities. From our multiple appearances at conferences, to our various talks, and our numerous accountability sessions we have created a new space for trans women of color leadership in the movement.
We are an organizing collective, NOT a registered non-profit. We rely on grassroots fundraising to sustain the work. Trans women of color have historically — and continue to — put our bodies on the line for justice. The amount of unpaid emotional, physical, and psychological labor we do for our movements is astronomical. We are tired of the lip service that our allies give to trans women of color issues. We believe that the role of allies in our movement is to fund us so that we can do the work for ourselves! This is a fundraising campaign lead by allies to support our work. We need YOUR change, to make our own!
my friend marlowe is a trans woman and wants to get surgery. her insurance will cover it, but she still has to pay $1k out of pocket. her job doesn’t pay that well but she’s doing her best to save up. if anyone can donate, it’d be really helpful! if you’re unable to donate, at least reblogging this would be fantastic.
