“I just wanted to say to him: If its ok for you to rape me because I was dressed like a ‘slut/skank/ho/whore’; then is it ok for me to shoot/stab/maim/kill you because you are a male who looks threatening? Aren’t you asking for it?”
Seriously you guys walking round in big drunken groups, wearing tshirts that show off your muscles that could potentially pin me to a wall, being rowdy at the back of the almost empty 10.20pm bus and making the space around you feel less safe for anyone who is not a white cis man - if I pull out a knife and stab every last one of you “I’m entitled to every inch of space around me” fuckers it’s fine because you were totally asking for it because the way you’re acting and looking fits right into my ideas of a man who could potentially damage me or other women. What do you expect walking around acting like you could hurt someone at the drop of a hat? It’s your fault, I can’t help myself when I see a potential threat, it’s just nature. If you don’t want to be stabbed for looking threatening then cover up, wear something baggy to hide your muscular body, walk around by yourself so you’re less intimidating and keep your head down when I walk past so I don’t think you’re going to target me.
I dislike it, think it’s a perversion of almost all that is fun kinky and free, and the way it’s come to permeate online discourse makes me laugh and cringe considering my experiences being black, an ACTUAL PERFORMER AND PERFORMANCE STUDIES PERSON, and a person who likes sense.
“We accept all girls in kindergarten through 12th grade as members. If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout. If a child is living as a girl, that’s good enough for us. We don’t require any proof of gender.”—
Rachelle Trujillo, vice president for communications of the Colorado Girl Scouts, responding to a story about a transgender girl who was allowed to join the Brownies.
Looks like I’ll be buying a ton of cookies this year.

No Doubt are hoping to finish recording their new album by March.
SWEET HOLY BABY JESUS. OH MY. I’M CRYING TEARS OF JOY. OH MY GOD. YES. I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG NOW. OH MY GOD.
ALL OF THE YAAAYS ^__^
I wanna be like yaaaay because Gwen Stefani was a childhood idol…but then I remember how betrayed I felt by that b-a-n-a-n-a-s shit, and her starting to drag around human beings like they were pets and/or accessories…and I am skeptical that I will actually like this album.
I want my partner to get off on fucking me. I want them to cum just by looking at my body. I want them to be hard when I need it, and soft when I want it. I want them to be able to last for hours and fuck me til it hurts their hand so much they need to ice it afterwards. I want them to work up a sweat on just foreplay.
And I want to give them what they want, but only because what they want is me.
Reblogging the whole damn thing because Femma knows what’s up when it comes to femme sex. She basically just described my ideal bedroom scenario.
now all I need is to find someone who can fulfill it!
is that there are and have been, for some time, a number of blogs on Tumblr that either included the word n****r in their title or form literal death threats toward Black people/People of Color in their titles, descriptions, and posts. There are also many directly…
on changing where you get your ideas of what's hot
You know, it is 100% true that in the 6 years I haven’t had a TV and haven’t read any mainstream media publications, and instead have looked at hot people mostly through feminist/queer internet spaces (queer porn, Tumblr, blogs), my gut-level inclinations to find someone hot have changed so much. It really does wonders for knocking the skinny white straight cis supermodel off her pedestal, so fuck everyone who thinks you just “can’t help what you’re attracted to”.
No More Apologies is a day-long sex talk, designed to name and address the exclusion of queer trans women from broader queer women’s sexual communities.
Social exclusion negatively impacts trans queer women’s sexual, emotional, and psychological health; meanwhile, by excluding trans women from our communities, cis queer women are missing out on a multitude of sexy, wonderful women to love, fuck, and connect with.
Join us for this long overdue conversation and call to action about how to transform our talk about trans inclusion into practice.
Because trans inclusion means more than including trans men in our communities.
Because trans inclusion means more than just saying “women and trans people” in our mission statements.
Because welcoming trans women into our spaces is not the same as welcoming them into our beds.
Because our actions are speaking louder than our words.
