I’m off to Trans Pride Brighton.  Traveling really stresses me out so I only do on super special, super queer occasions.

I feel like a 14-year-old kid who hasn’t done their homework, except I’m 24, I have job applications to complete and a trip to Brighton this weekend to prepare for.  All I’m doing is binge-watching Avatar.

CASTING CALL: POC GENDERQUEER / NON-BINARY FEMME

This is a casting call for a paid role. Check below the “Read More” line for the actual casting call. Please help us spread the word!

Watching our own pilot, something became apparent. While our show has POC actors, all were of lighter complexion, and we hadn’t created space for actors with darker skin tones. That meant we weren’t creating a show that our whole audience could see themselves in. That didn’t sit right.

Addie is a new role that we’ve added to the show. They’re a genderqueer POC (of darker complexion). At the start of the show, Addie and Su work together. Su moves on, but their lives intersect every once in a while.

Addie has a scene early on where they’re still presenting as a man, but in subsequent scenes are living out as a genderqueer / non-binary femme. Their role in the first season is limited, but their story stretches into future seasons.

Our casting call is below the “Read More” line. Please help us spread the word! This is an important opportunity for QTPOC actors!

Maybe I’m not down, maybe I’m just allergic to emotions and that’s why my eyes are watering.

that´s the way I like it baby - I don´t want that cops live forever

Did the cop trying to help him hit him with his baton to try to put the fire out?

I think the reflexive instinct of a cop seeing a person in distress on the ground is start hitting them with their baton.

Thats probably it.

Cool firebending.

My mom showed me this when I was a kid and I was so impressed

Ace, I’m gonna use this now.  It’s way better than that song that goes “30 days has Octember, April, June and Necember” or something…

the best way i have found to deal with dysphoria is not trying not to want what i want and can’t have - that doesn’t work - but trying to also want things i can have, including finding new things to want

This is a way I’d never thought of it before. Thank you.

What do intersex activists want?
One of the main concerns of intersex activists is to transition from concealment-based treatments of intersex infants to one that is patient-centered. Often, intersex children are subjected to medically unnecessary procedures and surgeries in order to make their genitals appear normal. The child is then often raised without any idea of their intersex condition. Some of these surgeries create children with genitals different than their eventual gender, prompting sexual reassignment surgery which could otherwise have been avoided. Many surgeries and procedures are also experienced as sexually and/or psychologically abusive by intersex children, especially those used for research purposes or requiring sexually invasive treatments. Intersex activists now advocate that only medically necessary treatments be performed on intersex children, and that support and education should prevail instead of shame and concealment.
Some other demands of intersex activists include:
Not being fetishized or over sexualized
To be treated as real, diverse people rather than convenient examples for sex and gender theorists
Some wish to be allowed to legally identify as intersex instead of, or in addition to, male or female
To end stigma against intersex persons
Better education among medical professionals
Appropriate and knowledgeable health care
More psychological and social support for intersex children and their families
To consider medical necessity and sexual function as important factors in intersex care, as opposed to ‘normalcy’

I’ve loved you my whole life, Terry Jones

So what? what about all the other london businesses that don’t pay london living wage? Don’t just single one out, either support everyone or support no one!

Eh, all the others aren’t out on strike, the Ritzy Staff are -  that’s why

Oh my fucking god I CANNOT DEAL with this sort of attitude! Like, when teachers etc. strike people are like ‘ugh, they get paid better than xyz people/me so fuck them’. What is this ridiculous race to the bottom? You going to wait until everyone is homeless and starving before you support worker’s rights?
