You might think I look Like “Just A Girl,” but you should be very, very afraid of me.” subtext= this message brought to you by The Riot http://theriotmag.tumblr.com]
finally a woman oriented mini manifesto that doesn’t confuse femininity with womanhood or pussy with woman or any of that. <3333
The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. Day of Remembrance gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence. (http://www.transgenderdor.org/)

"To tell a pansexual that bisexuality should “cover” them, “be enough”, or “do for” them is to deny the true way in which their sexuality manifests."

I had a self-described bisexual get all up on me on twitter a few weeks ago because I said that I reject bisexual in favour of pansexual as a descriptor as it implies a gender binary that places limits on what I’m attracted to and is disrespectful to partners past and future that fall outside their binary.
They advised me that since genderqueer people still have the male or female sexual organs, regardless of how they gender identify, bisexual still covered them!!!
So much fail. Not least of which is the total lack of acknowledgement of intersex folks!
