OKAY NO EVERYONE HOLD YOUR HORSES HAVE I GOT SOME GREAT SHIT FOR YOU!!

you see these binders? They may not look much, but these fucking things bind like the CHAINS OF HELL THEMSELVES. I’ve got HUGE tits, up in the DD range, but this simple little binder works some goddamn MAGIC on them. It’s comfortable, it binds, it provides perfect support and whatever the hell else. 

These are perfect for both trans* and crossplay-related purposes! What’s the catch though, right? They’re probably super expensive?

HOW DOES $8.28 WITH FREE SHIPPING SOUND???

i use this binder and as a trans boy i can say first hand that they work really well and i would highly recommend them if you are short on cash and need a good binder. i’m about a D cup and these make me look virtually flat.

Signal boost!

MADDIE BLAUSTEIN IS SO IMPORTANT YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA

She was inspired to come out as transexual after working on the episode “Go West Young Meowth.” She said she saw Meowth as a human trapped in a pokemon’s body, just as she saw herself as a woman trapped in a man’s body.

I didn’t know this!! 

Oh she’s done a buncha stuff.  The first time I looked into them was when I saw the credits to ‘Valkyrie Profile’.  I was curious if it was a mistake with how one person could do the softest and highest voice as well as the deepest manliest voice in that game.  Turns out they really were just that good!  Besides voice acting, they also worked on stuff in Second Life an’ helped put together transgender support groups too.  Looking over their wikipedia, I feel it’s too short…I swear there was WAY more stuff they were involved with…

she also wrote the DC/Milestone comic series Deathwish, and did some stuff on Hardware and Static. :)

Okay but hang on a minute with the screenshot, you’re missing some important context here!

Blaustein was born intersex. She was assigned male at birth and lived as male for many years before transitioning to female. Her experience as an activist in the transgender community helped her to organize and support groups of people in Second Life.

Maddie’s success is tremendous for a number of reasons, but I think it’s pretty important to recognize that she was born intersex as well, as there aren’t nearly enough intersex individuals who are properly recognized for their successes.

Oh

Fucking
God

Study finds "no compelling medical reason" to ban trans people from military →

gaywrites:

A study released this week confirmed something we’ve known all along — there is "no compelling medical reason" to ban transgender people from serving in the military. 

The report came from the Palm Center, a research center for gender, sexuality and military issues at San Francisco State University, and it was funded by trans veteran Jennifer Pritzker. Trans people are still banned from serving, even though the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell made it legal for openly LGBT people to serve.

Some details that I could never summarize accurately: 

"Arguments based on mental health are not convincing rationales for prohibiting transgender military service, and [the ban] is not consistent with modern medical understanding," the report argues. "Scientists have abandoned psychopathological understandings of transgender identity, and no longer classify gender non-conformity as a mental illness."

The report goes on to explain that the diagnosis “transsexualism” — which is one of the specific conditions listed in the regulations banning trans service members — was replaced in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual by the term “gender identity disorder” in 1994, and once again changed to the diagnosis gender dysphoria in 2013. “While gender identity disorder was pathologized as an all-encompassing mental illness, gender dysphoria is understood as a condition that is amenable to treatment,” the report adds.

The commission also dispelled arguments that suggest that the military providing hormone replacement therapy treatments and gender-confirming surgeries would disrupt deployment plans, and come at too high a cost to the federal government. Outlined in the report, the commission points to the expensive medical treatment non-military personnel often receive, comparing that to the relatively inexpensive and sparingly used treatment of trans service members.

This is SO important. President Obama could theoretically end this ban without Congressional action; I really hope he’s paying attention to this.

destroy the belief that ‘gender neutral’ or ‘androgynous’ means dressing like a boy

destroy the belief that masculine is the default

From The Little Girl from the 1981 Lego Ad Is All Grown Up, and She’s Got Something To Say.
“Toys are supposed to foster creativity. But nowadays, it seems that a lot more toys already have messages built into them before a child even opens the pink or blue package. In 1981, LEGOs were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message. In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender.”
