figuring-out-the-other-side:

I could see transethnicity in an adoption sense or a reincarnation sense (I.e. parents adopt a child of another ethnicity and they feel dysphoria, or a person of one ethnicity is reincarnated into that of a different ethnicity) but I only ever see it used by people (usually white to be honest I’m sorry but it’s true) to try and say they are a different more opressed race just so they can do the whole ‘no I’M the most oppressed’ shtick that tumblr loves to pull.

But if someone TRULY feels the dysphoria if transethnicity, I think that it is a very plausible that they may be a reincarnate of someone of that ethnicity. Sort of like otherkin, but strictly human.

hey let’s all take a moment to remember that the vast, vast majority of all violent crimes throughout the last ten thousand years have been committed by males, from rape and murder to slavery and colonialism and war and ecological devastation and genocide, and that that’s not a coincidence, and that we should remember this when we say anything about men ever

Leading Men Age, Leading Women Don’t | Vulture

There are more charts if you click through.

I’m so glad this info graphic is going around, because so many people don’t realize how ageism and misogyny play hand in hand and how the sexualization of young girls play into this.

"People speak sometimes about the ‘bestial’ cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel."

tarsussfour asked: Yo, I don't mean to disrespect your views or change your mind. Just pointing out that hating the opposite gender is what brought along sexism in the first place.

piscula:

If you aren’t trying to change my mind then why are you even talking to me about this?  Stop lying about your motives both to yourself and to me.

My hatred is reactionary, my anger is reactionary, my grief for my female sisters is reactionary.  I am reacting  to thousands of years of abuse and subjugation.  

My hatred and my anger will not stop until men stop raping, murdering, and abusing us.  My hatred will stop when there is no longer a widespread need for crisis centers for women because our boyfriends, fathers, husbands, and even strangers feel like our body is their property to rape or knock around.  My anger will stop when little girls aren’t being groomed for motherhood and  for dating men before we are old enough to tie our own shoes.  My hatred will stop when teenage girls no longer have to fend off the gaze and touch of middle aged men.  My anger will stop when women are no longer forced to sell their bodies for food, their sense of selves for a place to sleep.  My hatred will stop when men stop trying to force their way into our spaces, when men recognize that they have been enforcing and maintaining a system that knocks women to their knees so that they can feel tall.

My hatred, my anger, it is reactionary.  Male hatred, that is unfounded.

Spend your time telling them to not “fight fire with fire” or telling them that “hate breeds hate”.  

I am fighting fire with the only thing available to me, go tell men to stop fucking lighting the fires, then we can talk.

"If we’re still conflating harassment with attraction, then the point has not been made clear enough: harassment is about power, not about sex. When making lewd comments to a woman he doesn’t know on the street, a man is not flirting. He’s asserting his dominance. He’s reminding that woman of her “place.” He’s performing a masculinity based on control. This isn’t sexual liberation."

"When they’re babies, people will come up and say to you ‘Are they a boy or a girl?’ when the kid’s in the pram and you can’t tell. And immediately when you tell them which gender it is they will behave differently according to what you tell them. It got to the point where we didn’t want people to know what gender the baby was. Just treat it as you’d treat someone you wanted to be nice to! Why is it so important to you to know? And then you hear people saying ‘Oh, look at him, he’s a little flirt isn’t he’, or ‘Oooh, she’s gonna wrap you around her little finger’ and all this. What are you on about? She’s two months old, she’s just shat herself."

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

This place does amazing, important work, and they are well worth supporting.  Sex ed in this country is a sick joke, and sites like this are having to take up the slack, run on donations from people like us who actually want the next generation to have happy, fulfilling, safe lives full of as much or as little sex as they want.

I just made a donation, and you should too!  Help support an org providing comprehensive, inclusive sex, gender, and health information to youth.

SIGNAL BOOST!
