A word of advice to trans women




Go to your nearest target. Buy a two pack of pushup bras (24$ for 2), and target’s bra inserts (12$). Then go to your nearest Walmart and buy the Vasserette Control Shapewear Panties (2.50 each), they do wonders for helping your tuck. There you go! You just saved yourself a lot of money, you can afford to buy enough to wear every day, and best of all you look fabulous.

Five Ways Cis Feminists Can Help Build Trans Inclusivity and Intersectionality



1) Be willing to confront instances of transphobia, cissexism, cisnormativity, cis-centrism, cis privilege and other forms of destructive bias where you find them (especially when you find them within feminist, activist or queer spaces), not through “call outs” or other toxic, self-defeating or abusive strategies, but by taking the opportunity for genuine discourse.

2) Don’t take a purely passive, reactive approach. Rather than waiting for things like someone saying something overtly cissexist, or a trans person bringing up a particular concern, be willing to proactively introduce trans issues, or trans-relevant aspects of broader issues, to feminist discourse. Likewise, proactively treat possible consequences, perspectives and concerns relevant to trans people and trans experiences as being not only significant but essential to all feminist issues and conversations.

3) Don’t assume any given issue is strictly, or even primarily, relevant to cis women. All feminist concerns are also transgender concerns, and vice versa. There are no feminist dialogues in which trans voices “don’t belong”, or to which trans voices have “nothing to add”. There are nosocial issues related to gender that don’t have consequences for trans people.

4) Proactively seek out transgender voices, perspectives and input on all issues, not simply what you regard as “trans issues” or situations where the value of such perspectives is immediately obvious to you. Come to us, rather than waiting for us to come to you.

5) Don’t treat the larger social conflict of gender as being dialectic or binary in nature. Don’t assume a unidirectional model of gender-based oppression.

California restaurant kicks out trans women, eats humble pie


By Matt Wood

Transgender Law Center assisted two transgender women in Los Angeles who were wrongfully asked to leave a restaurant in Burbank in October. While eating dinner, the two women, Jennifer Reid and Victoria Rose were approached by the restaurant’s manager and asked to leave, allegedly because their clothing was not appropriate for a “family restaurant.” The women rightly believed that they were being targeted because of their gender identity and contacted TLC for information about the law and their rights.

Transgender Law Center explained to Jenny and Victoria that the Unruh Civil Rights Act, California’s public accommodations law, prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity in business establishments – including transgender and gender nonconforming folks alike.

(Any place that provides goods and services to the general public is considered a public accommodation – this includes restaurants, grocery stores, health clinics, hospitals, health clubs, homeless shelters and most social services).

Armed with this information, Jenny called the restaurant’s Regional Manager and demanded a public apology from the restaurant manager, a refund for the meal she and Victoria were unable to finish, and a promise that the restaurant would do remedial training with all of their managers and staff so that no transgender person would face this kind of discrimination.

Less than 24 hours after that conversation, Jenny was contacted by the Regional Manager who made a personal apology and arranged for the Burbank manager to apologize to Jenny and Victoria in the restaurant in front of the Burbank restaurant staff. Jenny and Victoria were also given a refund and extra gift coupons. Even more impressively, Jenny was then contacted by the restaurant’s Regional Human Resources Manager who was impressed with how informed Jenny was, and had decided to use some of the information from Jenny’s conversation with the Regional Manager to institute sensitivity training for all management and staff at the restaurant chain, effective immediately. As a result of Jenny and Victoria’s courageous self-advocacy, this restaurant chain is now on notice that transgender customers must be treated with the same dignity and respect afforded to all other customers.

Jenny and Victoria’s experience is an example of how transgender and gender nonconforming people often experience discrimination in their communities when accessing public accommodations, including being refused service, being treated differently than their non-transgender peers, or being victims to harmful verbal and physical violence when simply trying to carry out their daily activities.

Hey, does anyone know any resources that’re actually good for really young trans kids, preferably trans kids of color? I’m trying to find stuff for anon but can only find stuff that ends up being for teachers or for parents, which is… not helpful. Boost?

The only resource I know for trans kids is Gender Spectrum.  I volunteered at their Family Conference a couple summers ago and had a good experience with gender stuff there.  They welcomed kids of all ages.

I don’t know of any others, and trans kids of color specific, I don’t know either.  Signal boost!

When everyone holds their Trans* Day of Remembrance vigil this month, please don’t forget about CeCe McDonald. She’s in prison right now for fighting back & surviving a brutal attack that could have put her on this very list. We need to show support for our sister.

tammy baldwin: supported strategic removal of trans protections from ENDA

mary gonzalez: open pansexual WOC who acknowledged the existence of non-binary identities when she came out

let me tell you whose victory i’m celebrating

edit: tammy baldwin did not actually support removal of trans protections from ENDA. After Barney Frank stripped trans protections, she tried to introduce an amendment adding them back in; Democratic party leadership strongarmed her out, threatening to block her from being able to introduce the amendment unless she agreed to withdraw it before voting; so, introducing it, she got to speak in favor of trans protections. She stuck her neck out a LOT to make a case for us, even while Frank and the party were firmly against her.
but super-psyched for Mary Gonzalez, yes :D

Call me Imp.

She/her/hers or they/them/theirs.

I am, in no particular order: 23, white, anglo, USian citizen, middle-class, able-bodied, poly, intersex, somewhat debilitated w/ depression but largely neurotypical, allistic, fat, singlet, sighted, hearing, unemployed, college student, queer, trans, genderfluid (between woman and genderqueer).

I tend to follow VERY few people and often have to unfollow people briefly or permanently when I just can't handle my dash.

If you aren't comfortable with me being on your blog / contacting you / etc, you can tell me and I'll back off. If it's hard to actually say it, you can send an ask just saying "red".

Why'd you use Spivak pronouns for that person?
