FACT OF THE DAY: we see colors based on various wavelengths of light that travel here from the sun. in other solar systems, all of their colors would be completely different, because they have a different sun

I was going to apologize for making “another one of those” posts; but then I remembered how many of those “feel sorry for cis people!!” comics there are and how they have SO MUCH MORE notes than informative and trans sympathetic posts so. I’m not apologizing for this.
- singular “they” is grammatically correct, no matter what your high school english teacher says
- don’t be afraid to question your own gender identity and don’t let people guilt trip you about it (additionally, being nb and not minding gendered pronouns is an acceptable comfort)
- why you should respect people’s pronouns and identities (and not be a rude asswipe about it)
- re: hate and social justice | re: generalizing oppressors and social justice
- the trans housing network !
- some good points if you’re cis
- "but none of my trans / queer / any other oppressed group is mean to me in real life, it’s just mean people on tumblr!"
- penises and vaginas and chromosomes have nothing to do with gender fyi
- there’s no such thing as being “trans enough”
- protect transwomen at all costs
- petition to legally recognized nonbinary genders

Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
this gets funnier every year

This is a serious problem. Don’t do it.
but what if you became a famous actor or actress and then you were asked to do a film and you accepted but then your costar was your celebrity crush that you used to blog about at 3am and you used to cry over their face and their general life decisions
Can you imagine someone casting their first successful corporeal Patronus, but it comes out enormous and unidentifiable and it just keeps emerging out of their wand… everyone turns to watch, confused and concerned, and the caster just stares blankly at the Patronus until some nerd recognizes the shape and shouts, “Good lord, it’s a Blue Whale!”
