Sometimes I think this world is a shithole and then I see those little good things that make me think maybe it's all worth it.

  • give myself fresh water
  • take myself for walks
  • let myself have time to play
  • tell myself how loved and cute i am

I like this

Quote reblogged from Puppies and Dinosaurs with 679 notes

Let me be very clear about something: Surgery is absolutely not a requirement for or condition of trans*ness. For some people gender-confirmation surgery is a personal necessity, a life-or-death need. For others it’s not. For some the medical risks aren’t worth it. For some it’s a financial impossibility. And, believe it or not, some trans* people simply don’t want any kind of surgery. Each person is different.

When people ask whether she’s going to do “the full transition,” I most often reply now by saying that she already has. The important thing to remember is that there isn’t some kind of finish line. There’s not a day in the future when my partner will finally and completely be a woman. She is a woman now. Today. She is not a halfling. She is not transitioning: She has transitioned. Focusing further on the specifics of her genitals is just kind of creepy. Genitals do not make a person. While surgeries can help some people feel more comfortable in their skin, those people were already wholly the gender by which they identified before surgical intervention. Some women have penises. Some men have vaginas. That’s that.

The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)

college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?

This Phone App Helps Transgender Users Change The Pitch And Tone Of Their Voices →

transquesting:

glsen:

buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:

The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:

As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”

At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!

!!!!!

And there’s an Android version for those of us who choose not to use the only phone Silicon Valley seems to care about! :)

How true is this post.

I can so relate to this big time! I refuse to live a realistic life to fit in with people. 

I believe in dreaming so big that even your dream scares you. But sadly so many of us have dreams but we let other peoples opinions get to us, our own doubts get to us and even the whole question of How is it going to happen though…


Just because you can’t see it happen in the physical doesn’t mean it can’t happen in the spiritual. Don’t limit yourself based on what you can see…
