I almost choked on my arizona tea, maybe it’s a sign I should really stop drinking it cause I just coughed for a good five minutes.
I am going to start carrying a razor with me in public so I can quickly shave off those weird moustaches belonging to teenage boys.
Finished my essay for English haha. Note to self for next time: save the citations as you go.
While you’re throwing dirt on him from left to right,he’s being the lovely person that he really is.
So You Still Think Homosexuality Is A Sin?
via my mother
I think more people object to homosexuality based on the “ick” factor than are willing to admit it. All that Bible stuff is just a front.
I don’t need to have pride of my genitals. I need people (cis people especially) to stop telling me how to feel about my body.
Just my two cents on Arielle’s video(s)
OMG ARIELLE SCARCELLA FROM GIRLFRIENDSTV YOU NEED TO STOP MAKING SHITTY VIDEOS ABOUT TRANS GUYS SERIOUSLY WTF
"YOU NEED TO HAVE VAGINA PRIDE" OMG WTF
The “Problem” with V-Pride
Several trans men, including myself, have been upset with Arielle’s videos about v-pride. I am not comfortable writing out the word because I know that many of my followers may find it triggering. I like to say “v” or “vahina”, as a way to differentiate it from the anatomical word I was taught in school. It’s the word I grew up with and associated with pre-transition, because I was taught to do so.
As we become more aware of the differences in sex and gender, we’ve also been stepping away from gendering genitals. People are more open to creating their own nicknames for their junk, and stepping away from the scientific word. So now we are teaching ourselves not to associate “v” with women and “p” with men.
The issue isn’t that trans men are gendering “v” as female. And if they were, the issue is not that they are misogynistic (as Arielle implied in a facebook comment). Many of us were socialized female. We were given “the talk” as women - we learned what most women learn about their anatomy including the term assigned to it. As we transition, we want to be seen as male. We ARE male. Hearing a cis woman, who was raised like most of us, using that word in reference to US - it’s almost like she’s reminding us that we have the same upbringing. We got the same talk, we took care of our anatomy the same way. It’s a painful reminder that, no matter how far we come, people will always associate “v” with female.
Listening to a woman tell us to collectively love our “v” (OUR - again implying we have similar anatomy) sucks. Watching her shut down our community over and over again sucks. It’s disrespectful, hurtful, and perpetuates the stereotype that we are not “real” men.
