cis ppl can have horns and swirls and spikes n shit surgically implanted under their skin any time they want if theyre rich enough but a trans woman wants boobs she has to wait at least 1-2 years for doctors to be convinced that she REALLY wants them
A cis woman who doesn’t have boobs or wants bigger ones can go and buy them any time if she has the money. A cis man with low testosterone can have T prescribed for him on the first doctor’s visit. Cis women take estrogen and progesterone routinely, for various reasons. A cis man with gynecomastia (breast growth) can have top surgery just because.
What I mean is it’s not just piercings and horns: Cis people can have actual gender-related medical interventions done any time, and they do have them, and it’s perfectly normal. But when trans people want the same interventions, often to literally save our lives, we have to wait years and jump through countless hoops to convince doctors that we really need it. The same things that cis people can have just like that.
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
Thank you this has always pissed me off so much!! What about single fathers?? What about children with two gay dads? What if the mother just doesn’t happen to be present for whatever reason and it’s an emergency? What if the mum is just sick and tired of getting up to change the nappy and it’s the dad’s turn to do it for once? It’s absolutely ridiculous that it hasn’t occurred to people yet to just add a nappy changer to the men’s bathroom. Aren’t men parents too? Don’t they have the right to take care of their kid without either having to sneak into the women’s bathroom and get called a pervert for it or having to stand outside awkwardly while the baby sits uncomfortably and cries because his or her father isn’t able to do anything about it?
Racially based dating preferences are not made in a vacuum and I’m really tired of hearing that excuse
Because I have yet to hear an explanation about why someone doesn’t date a poc group that didn’t involve an extremely racist ass stereotype embedded in white supremacy and fetishism
Dating preferences are influenced by the white supremacist society we live in. When you are exposed to light, bright and white all your damn life, that shit is internalized.
Let’s play a game: spot the person of color.
Jennifer Lawrence - English, German, Irish, and Scottish
Matt Damon - Scottish, English, Finnish and Swedish
Leonardo DiCaprio - mostly German and Italian
don’t feel like looking up anyone else.
whoever made this is as ignorant as they are “trying” to make this picture seem.
it’s more than just the color of skin.
get ya crusty ass self up off my post naming like 5 flavors of mayonnaise talmbout diversity, you stupit.
PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD.
Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is
boiling hot as well.
Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.
Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil.
Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.
Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this.
I’ve dealt with these before. If you find one:
- Do not touch it
- Do not touch it
- Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
- Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
- Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.
I’ve seen what these can do. The acidic liquid inside can strip the paint off a car.
when i visited vancouver these were everywhere. it’s not a fucking joke they’re actually scary
Just a reminder that there are awful shitty people out there doing awful shitty things to everyone else
there was a bunch of these at disneyland
i found one in my back yard, when i let my dogs out, i pulled them back inside, took my cousins bb shotgun and shot it from a safe distance (i was in my house and shot from the screen door. When it went off, my family and neighbors came running to see if everything was ok. I told them what happened and to watch out for them.
These things are not a joke! When we went to check the damage there was a fucking hole in the ground. The dirt in my yard is like CLAY.
This shit is bad news
PLEASE DON’T BE AN ASSHAT. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE BOMBS IN PEOPLE’S YARDS.
It’s funny because Americans wont get it
this is killing me. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
i was tempted to write what it means, but then i thought
no, let them suffer
Okay, I’m going to take a gander at this.
(I have no idea why I was compelled to use that expression.)
Is “auto class” the same thing as driver’s education?
Hmm. Is part of it a “the screen is fried” pun?
oh my fucking god
this is adorable
NO I UNDERSTAND NOW
THE GLASS IS “CHIPPED”
FRENCH FRIES ARE “CHIPS”
IT SAYS “CALL AUTO GLASS”
I JUST STARED AT THIS FOR SO LONG
Friendly reminder ԅ(≖‿≖ԅ) that if you don’t sleep with someone for the sole reason that they’re HIV positive then you ARE being discriminatory towards a human being with a disease and you’re scum of the earth ｡◕‿◕｡ It’s basically as bad as saying you couldn’t love somebody with cancer. Respect people’s feelings. (◕‿◕✿)
"give yourself HIV to make someone happy. do it just give yourself an std you ffucin g piece of shit"
WOW this whole post is a mess from beginning to start so I’d like to attempt to make it better???
1) As far as relationships go, you should treat anyone with any STD the same as you would if they did not have an STD. You can hug, kiss, etc. and you’re NOT going to contract their STD those ways.
2) You have a right to know if your partner has an STD, and your partner deserves the same. If you’re unsure of your status, please consider being tested, or get tested together. Don’t treat being tested as shameful or a mark of promiscuity— it’s for your safety.
3) You are NOT OBLIGATED TO HAVE SEX WITH ANYONE. EVER. STD or no. If you’re not comfortable, and an STD has something to do with it, then DON’T. Don’t EVER let ANYONE pressure you into sex. If this becomes an issue in the relationship, you can talk to almost any doctor or Planned Parenthood about these things, and come to a resolution.
4) On the flipside, an STD does not mean that you CAN’T have sex with that individual! You might have to redefine how you think of sex— a lot of people don’t consider the full possibilities.
- Not all sex has to be penetrative sex.
- Use safety barriers! Condoms, gloves, dental dams, etc.
- Ever heard of sex toys?
5) You should treat anyone with ANY disease, whether or not it is an STD, with respect and support. Treat them like you would anyone else. If they are out and about living their lives, you can’t catch what they have just by being with them, so don’t be afraid of them.
HIV/STD discrimination is a problem right now. Students with HIV have been denied access to schools because of their HIV. People with HIV are treated terribly all around and that needs to stop. We need to stop demonizing, mystifying, and discriminating against these people.
