Hey, y'all! We got some positive trans rights news in the US, so lets talk about it.
Tumblr media
HB384 was pre-filed in Missouri yesterday, 12/6. This is a positive bill which would add sexual orientation and gender identity as a protected class in reference to anti-discrimination statues.
An additional piece of good news: today's hearing on Ohio HB151 was canceled. Legislators could have pushed this bill through during the lame duck session, but so far have held off. We will keep an eye on this bill in the coming weeks heading into the 2023 legislative session.
You can go to http://transformationsproject.org to learn more and contact your representatives. #ProtectTransKids

Fatphobes try to tell me that fatphobia doesn’t exist.
A fat person (I don’t know their identity or pronouns) posted this thirty second video on YouTube of them simply dressed in a wrapping paper outfit lip-syncing to a song:
Tumblr media
Any thin woman posting this would receive hundreds or even thousands of comments giving them compliments and gushing over the video.
But if you’re fat, you receive comments like these:
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Fatphobia is so ingrained in every single person that even a fellow fat person commented on this video and was disgustingly fatphobic:
Tumblr media
One of the only two “positive” comments is this person shaming the fat person who created the video for daring to put their naked body out there where thin people post their naked bodies as well:
Tumblr media
And then this person who compares them to a “treat” (food) and, at least to me after years of running this fat positive blog and dealing with so many fat fetishists, sounds like they’re fetishizing them:
Tumblr media
The only other comment on their video besides mine that I wrote to deflect the hate was this person’s comment that could very easily also be written by a fatphobe but does not give enough information to make a for certain answer:
Tumblr media
So that’s six comments of pure bigotry, one comment shaming the YouTuber for having bodily autonomy as a fat person, one person fetishizing them, and one person who may or may not also be a fatphobe. Now magnify this by thousands of comments for a fat person who has a bigger audience since this is a small YouTuber.
Fatphobia exists, fatphobes just want to justify it (the fatphobe who told me fatphobia doesn’t exist while also saying fat people should be killed by literal genocide) and downplay it. I’m looking straight at you fellow oppressed people who constantly tell me that fatphobia isn’t “real” oppression (: And this is only scratching the surface of fat people’s oppression. I haven’t mentioned the wage gap, forced mutilation, televised abuse for entertainment, encouraged starvation and eating disorders, deaths from extreme medical negligence, and so much more. Please tell me how this does not constitute oppression when this would be talked about on any activist blog if these things were due to sexism or homophobia. I’m waiting.

“Many of my movies have strong female leads - brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a saviour. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.” -Hayao Miyazaki
Happy International Women’s Day!

In light of recent events, I would like to remind everyone that the correct pro choice talking point that will actually pull people to our side is NOT whether a fetus is human or not because you'll never win. The correct argument is how the state should never have the power to force you to give up physical autonomy for the sake of any other being.

Back in 2019 i found a guide to equipment used by protesters in Hong Kong. I think it's useful and a lot of it could be applied to protests happening in the us:
Tumblr media
+ goggles might be good against tear gas as well (NOT swimming goggles, they can pop your eyes out when hit)

Hi, guys!
As you may know, I am Ukrainian. I live in Kyiv. I have lived here since I was born and I love my country with my whole heart.
I see a lot of misinformation under the tag "Ukraine". Most of it comes from American people, who try to explain the conflict in their own words. They can't. It's impossible to explain if you haven't lived here. There are too many influences on this conflict. You keep looking from an american perspective, which is not crucial in understanding the conflict.
For example, have you ever had you language forbidden? Like straight up forbidden by the law? It happened to Ukrainian language a lot of times thought our history. And who did it? The Russian Empire. And it's not the end of it. The genocides, the assimilation, the deportation. Have you even researched Ukrainian history?
You do not uplift Ukrainian voices enough. And you should if you care about what's happening. If you don’t do it, you're just doing a performance of your support and activism.
Lucky for you, I am a Ukrainian person! And I am DYING TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. I scored 191/200 points on my graduation exam in history, so you can suppose I know something about Ukrainian history.
If you stand for Ukraine, uplift Ukrainian voices. Educate yourself. Learn Ukrainian history. Ask Ukrainian people
Update: it's been a long time since I first wrote this message. It feels like at least a lifetime ago, but today it's exactly 4 months since the war began. Since this post is one people reblog, I wanted to add the main charity link for people who want to donate. Also I post about Ukraine and news from Ukraine regularly on my blog, so stick around, if you'd like.
https://savelife.in.ua/en/donate-en/
I hang out and speak more freely in my discord server, so I invite you to hang out there! I explain the situation in depth and share Ukrainian experiences. It's also a way to make friends for me since I have bad social anxiety.

y'know what? fuck it! shout out to all my fellow "stereotypes!"
shoutout to my fellow autists who do feel like a kid in an adult’s body because their mind works differently. shoutout to my fellow systems who have alters that lash out, and/or alters of fictives from popular media. shoutout to my fellow bpd folks who get clingy and have abandonment issues. shoutout to the autists who act "robotic" and love trains or dinosaurs. shoutout to the people with OCD/OCPD who do get obsessions with cleanliness and orderliness, who do wash their hands over and over, who do lock and unlock the doors a specific number of times. shoutout to the people struggling with intrusive thoughts that do get the violent ones and the sexual ones, not just the self-injurious ones.
shoutout to my fellow flamboyant gays. shoutout to the lesbians who wear flannel and have buzzcuts. shoutout to the aces who like space and cake and dragons. shoutout to the aces who are stoic and don't have an interest in bonding with people even non-romantically. shoutout to the nbs with neopronouns and names like "star." shoutout to the queers(or otherwise lgbt+ folk if you don't use that term for yourself) who have dyed and cut hair, wear a shitload of pronoun pins, wear a rainbow binder that can be seen, and love talking about how much they love being part of the community.
shoutout to my fellow activists who yell and get mad. shoutout to my fellow activists who bring up the problems in things, even if it means "always making it political." shoutout to the feminists who don't wear bras or shave, and don't get along with men.
shoutout to the men who struggle with emotions. shoutout to the men who love blue and camo and trucks and fixing things and sports and hunting. shoutout to the women who cry easily. shoutout to the women who take hours getting ready. shoutout to the women who love pink and shopping and shoes and cooking and taking care of kids and cleaning.
i'm very white so i'll summarize the next one: shoutout to all the BIPOC fitting into "stereotypes" as well. if anyone who is BIPOC wants to give specific shout outs, go for it!
to anyone who fits these or any other "stereotypes":
You are not a stereotype. You are a person with traits and qualities. You are not doing anything wrong by being true to yourself, whether that means fitting expectations or not.
Anyone who hates whatever group you are in for these "stereotypes" would hate your group regardless; anyone who accuses you of "giving your group a bad name" is deflecting the hate onto you because it's easier to pretend that it's nothing they are doing that gets that hatred; the truth is, bigots are bigots and they will always find a "reason" to be hateful. You trying to avoid "stereotypes" will never change that.
(do not fucking clown on this post. you will not get a debate from me, you will get blocked.)

Spooky season is upon us! To celebrate I put together a few designs promoting books and libraries. If you like them, feel free to use them! These are four of my poster designs! Again, these posters are absolutely free for you to print and use!
Schools and public libraries are under attack and need your support. They are facing quiet defunding, book bans, and acts of hate. Please consider contacting your local representative to ask that these institutions remain funded and protected, and show your support by stopping by your local library.
For additional Halloween freebies celebrating libraries and reading, click the link here!
If you would like to see more of my library/activism designs or would like to get these designs on a T-shirt, book bag, or sticker, you can visit my shop here.
