A report from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey conducted by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality, found that transgender people faced double the rate of unemployment of the general population, with 63 percent of the transgender people surveyed reporting they experienced a serious act of discrimination that majorly affected their ability to sustain themselves. These numbers are even worse for trans people of color, especially trans women of color, the deaths of whom have been deemed a “state of emergency.”
Trans women have been saddled with the responsibility of taking on trans-exclusionary feminists for far too long—but it’s not their issue to deal with alone.

You literally did this to yourself.
White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
Last week, Mumbai hosted its largest ever pride march. The Queer Azaadi March was an act of defiance in the face of the Indian Supreme Court upholding Section 377, which outlaws sexual acts that are “non-procreative,” a holdover from India’s years as a colony of the British empire.

Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”
Stacey: “Why not?”
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”
i said this before and ill say it again. THIS GUY IS AN ACTOR
HE IS NOT ACTUALLY A CREEP
hes playing a creepy character
I said this before and I’ll say it again: it doesn’t matter if this guy labels himself a “YouTube actor.” Comedy does not justify sexual harassment. He doesn’t tell women that it’s a (poor) joke beforehand and purposely makes lewd remarks/asks uncomfortable sexual questions. Here’s your proof, especially for marianneuk. And no, he doesn’t do this to men at conventions; the sexual undertones are reserved almost exclusively for those of the female persuasion.
If he’s playing a character it’s a horrible one, and he’s still being creepy in doing so.
