Fun fact! Trans and nonbinary people who choose not to go on hormones, get surgery, etc. are still totally valid! Nonbinary people who choose not to present as “androgynous” are still totally valid! Binary trans people who choose not to present traditionally feminine or masculine based on their gender are still totally valid!

Stop policing everyone’s identity. It isn’t difficult.

this is so refreshing to hear from a public figure, let alone a 37 year old amab male-presenting celebrity; there is such a difference between the way our generation and gerard’s own approach perceptions/conceptions of gender and it is so unbelievably nice to have him validate and empathise with those questioning their gender identity in this way

Andii Viveros, then 17, said she was in “total shock” to hear her name called as prom queen when she stood alongside 14 other contenstants for McFatter Technical High School’s 2011 crown. While not exactly homecoming, the prom crown meant just as much to the young woman.
Viveros told reporters she couldn’t have done it without the support of her parents, who bought her prom gown and who made sure, according to her father, Oscar, that “in our house [she’s] free to act and do whatever makes [her] comfortable.” Viveros also thanked her principal, who encouraged her to enter the running and told her, “Stay in the running. Don’t back down for anything.”

The biggest newspaper in Minnesota ran this ad in its Sunday edition.
It was placed by the anti-LGBT Minnesota Child Protection League in response to a proposed policy that would allow trans high school athletes to play on teams that correspond with their gender identity.
It reads: “A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are YOU ok with that?” In a full-page ad.

Marriage inequality isn’t just a social injustice?— it’s a financial one, too.

Just ask 67-year-old Arlene Goldberg. The South Florida resident was kicked out of her home after her wife of 47 years died because she wasn’t entitled to her wife’s Social Security benefits. Without that extra money, she couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage.

“I’m trying to figure out how I am going to get through this time,” she told NBC News. “I really can’t even pay my bills.”

PSA: Coming out day

bidyke:

A few of these have been making the rounds on tumblr, but I haven’t seen one that says this yet:

  • You don’t have to come out
  • You don’t have to feel pressured to come out
  • Being in the closet is not shameful
  • It’s about protecting yourself
  • If coming out will make you exposed to discrimination, rejection, harassment or violence, you are perfectly justified in staying closeted
  • If coming out day makes you feel like being closeted makes you a lesser person, don’t
  • It’s about survival and self-preservation
  • And you are awesome and fabulous no matter how few or how many people in your life know about your identity

I think, at this point in our world, we’ve got a really confused idea of the way that gender and sexuality work and we’ve created this really superfluous binary in the way we think about gender. I guess I identify as queer because I don’t identify with that. [x]
