Hey I’m going to loose WiFi for the next 2 weeks. I will try to upload as many Gladys pictures as possible but you will probably have to wait. Sorry.

What powers do Transgender Pansexuals have?

Answer:

pansexualfacts:

Pansexuals who are trans women have the power to call upon an army of pansexuals anywhere they go. They can use this in battle should they so desire, or to just throw a rocking party.
Pansexuals who are trans men can play any instrument they want. They can use this power in a variety of ways, such as controlling animals in a Pied Piper style, playing at concerts, or reaching into the void.
Pansexuals who are nonbinary can control their wings from birth- while most pansexuals have to earn their wings, nonbinary pansexuals are born with them and can impress other pansexuals with- in one pan’s words- the coolest flying tricks, like, ever.

humansofnewyork:

“My grandmother always told me: ‘It doesn’t matter if you’re crippled, blind, or crazy. All this world cares about is how you survive. As long as you don’t do drugs or go to jail, you’re gonna be fine.’”“What do you mean by: ‘The world only cares about how you survive?’”“The only thing people care about is if you’re working, and if you’re paying your taxes. I worked for the city for six years. During the time that I was working, I was Mr. Matthew Phillips. The moment that I wasn’t able to work anymore, I became a social security number.’”

Still Not a Joke — Good Awareness Campaign From Just Detention International

What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?
Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in general, is everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke. 

The idea that prisoners “deserve” to be raped is part of rape culture. Rape is not a punishment. It can not be earned. It is a crime every single time, no matter what, no matter who the victim is.

No one deserves to be sexually assaulted in any way. NO ONE.

hi, I'm in the planning stages of writing a historical novel set in 1930's/1940's Europe and one of my MC's is a bi man. I just read your excellent post on the history of lesbian and bisexual identities and I was wondering if you could offer me any reading suggestions about queer culture and identity in that time and especially about the identity of bi men? Because if the word bi wasn't in use, I don't want to pull a "he's gay who happens to like women too" and erase bisexuality in the story.

Answer:

bisexual-books:

Hm hm hm… that’s tricky because honestly I don’t know a ton about European male bisexuality at that time, and frankly queer identities in Europe really varied by what country and exactly what year we’re talking about.  For example, the early 1930’s in Germany was one of the most tolerant places to be a queer man.  By the end of that decade, it was one of the worst as queer men and women were rounded up by the Nazis and shipped off to concentration camps.   By that point the word bisexual was starting to grow in prominence here in the US by the 40’s, so maybe if your characters are highly educated or interested in psychology they would know it.  But also Europeans were kinda busy with the whole World War II thing so I’m really not sure if the word bisexual would have been around.

I’d start with Christopher Isherwood’s Goodbye to Berlin (which is sometimes reprinted as part of The Berlin Stories) since that will give you Germany in the early 1930’s.   

The Two Hotel Francforts by David Leavitt is a historical fiction set in that same time period and place.  Maybe give it a read for a POV or see if he has a list of resources in the back of the book.  Hell, email him and see if he can point you in the right direction.   

You might also want to talk to the folks over at the Bi History Group on facebook.  Some of them are that old so they may remember and others have great brains for historical books, archives, and stories.  

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Good luck!

Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xx 

Please signal boost this everybody!
