YES. WE’RE DOING IT!

C’mon everybody, remember you can vote more than once!

Yes on Laverne Cox and Lupita Nyong’o!

No on David Russel, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jared Leto, and Ru Paul!

I just voted Yes on RuPaul because we’re allowed to have different opinions. Especially when it comes to people we’ve never met.

Drag Race and his Glamazon album are important to be BECAUSE I’m genderqueer. Not despite it.

His traditional Drag terminology and jokes conflict with other people’s modern Trans*-positive etiquette. And that’s a really sad and weird thing.
But he responded well, and is changing parts of the show because of it - the “least he could do” was nothing. Which many racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic film, tv, and media creatives choose to do all the time.

Just some food for thought. People can mess up, f*k up horribly even, but they can change, and just have other facets to them that are worthy of recognition.

Fight HIV stigma by knowing the facts. HIV can only be transmitted through blood, breast milk, semen (cum) or vaginal fluids. Reblog and raise awareness!

^ that includes precum & menstrual blood <3

People still honestly believe these things (in the posters). When I worked in sexual health, we had at least one person per day calling up, asking if [x casual contact] could have given them HIV.  Some were really bizarre.  One guy wanted to know if his dog, that had bitten someone, but then licked him, could have transmitted HIV to him.  Like… no.

There are the good days, though, where you can wear it like armor and love those things in spite of yourself; or even in spite of the world that tries to tell you that you’re less valuable. A friend of mine made lend of the word ‘amazon’ and sometimes I use that to feel beautiful.

It doesn’t work everyday, but it doesn’t always have to. All the girls who feel this way are beautiful, and the ability to feel that if only sometimes can be plenty.

Pain is fleeting, but it makes us so powerful. As trans women, we’re powerful and beautiful in so many unique ways that most people can never understand.

You are an amazon. Be sad when you need it, but never forget that you are amazing.

the distinction between feeling sad and feeling like less of a woman is very important

Urgh, you are not alone in this one *hugs*
