I wouldn’t that you would have to… Usually asterisk means there’s a disclaimer, and that could be offensive.
not really a disclaimer, but a footnote.
it was explained to me that “trans*” with the asterisk, was a blanket term for all non binary folks, and by putting the asterisk then it means that they aren’t just ftm or mtf (although they are included) but that they could be genderfluid, agender, bigender, etc and that “trans” without the asterisk, was strictly ftm’s and mtf’s. @_@
but now people are telling me “nah don’t put the asterisk” and others are saying “yeah it’s kinda important to put the asterisk”
i found an old notebook and remembered two really great characters i designed!
asada, who is a toucan/thylacine named after meat/beef lol
and tallula, who is a dracavian (species by griffsnuff)
they both would make AMAZING fursuits, ahhhhhh
i’m getting mixed opinions on using an asterisk (*) after “trans”
am i supposed to put it or not?
i love how tumblr likes to act like it is a bunch of really intellectual activists who understand politics, religion, sexuality, and literature better than most of the human population
when it is mostly hormonal teenagers and incredibly pretentious uninformed college students
i have a ton of cute girly things i no longer want, and i’d love for them to find some happy homes with some girls who need them!
everything is in good condition, and some items are brand new. clothes are all of varying sizes, which i will specify under the cut.
***just have a look under the cut, and send me an ask specifying what you’d like, and we can sort out everything from there***
some additional notes:
- to reduce the cost and stress of shipping, it would really help if everyone picks at least 10-12 items
- if anyone has questions about measurements, shipping, ingredients in the makeup, special requests, etc. go right ahead and ask!
- i will keep this post constantly updated as i send out items.
- finally this should go without saying but: DO NOT contact me with the hopes of ordering if you are cis! the intention of this giveaway is to provide for trans girls only!
go on and have a look:
There is a petition right now that asks the US government to recognize non-binary genders on all legal documents, but it has just over 2 weeks left and only has nearly 27,000 signs, but we need to get to it 100,000 immediately for it to pass.
I know this is different from the usual blog content here, but I thought maybe you could help spread the word, since this petition applies to many people who follow or submit photos to this blog. here is a link to the petition, please please please sign/signal boost!
so the spring before last, i found these little things called “magic egg baby”
you take the lid off, but keep the egg in the bottom part, and fill the bottom with water. the egg soaks up the water and the top pops off reveling soil and seeds. as long as you keep water in the bottom part you will grow wheat grass!
they’re really fun and cute!
i was thinking these would be a cute way to do a little something for ostara if you have small living quarters or whatever.
the egg symbolizing fertility, the growing plant symbolizing spring/resurrection, they’re great!
anyway, i’m not sure where to buy these now. there are a couple of listings on ebay but they’re around $15 for one egg baby. i bought my four at walgreens (a pharmacy type store) for $4 each.
i emptied my egg babies and saved them after the grass had died, so i think i’ll go get some soil and new grass seeds at home depot tomorrow to fill them with again.
so yeah, thought i’d throw that out there.
I hate it when people say “egalitarianism just wants people to be all nice to eachother” as if it was a bad thing.
Like, yes? We want people to not discriminate, that’s the point.
Do you really need a movement that justifies hate? Do you really want to create more hate in this world?
