It is oppression that creates sex and not the contrary.

( Monique Wittig, “The Category of Sex” (via baedd-lez) )

This photo always cheers me up a bit. It’s a front-page article from 1952 about Christine Jorgensen, one of the first women to have gender-affirming surgery.
Since the text is a bit small and I couldn’t find a larger copy, here’s what the small blurb says:
A World of a Difference

George W. Jorgensen, Jr., son of a Bronx carpenter, served in the Army for two years and was given honorable discharge in 1946. Now George is no more. After six operations, Jorgensen’s sex has been changed and today she is a striking woman, working as a photographer in Denmark. Parents were informed of the big change in a letter Christine (that’s her new name) sent to them recently.

This article is 61 years old, and it’s more respectful of Christine’s pronoun choices and name than some publications are today. While there are still some phrasing inaccuracies in this article, it makes me happy to see a newspaper be respectful of a trans person’s choice of name and pronouns like that

Isn’t that interesting.
Tumblr emailed me to tell me they deleted my post calling out the dude who sent me a rape threat.
But hasn’t banned the dude who sent me a rape threat, even though I reported him.
I guess Tumblr just wants to make their site safer for people who send rape threats than those who receive them.
I guess it’s not considered harassment to send rape threats, but if you name the person who sends you rape threats, you are harassing them.
INTERESTING

Signal boost the  fuck out of this. Let’s make tumblr’s moderation team feel fucking ashamed for letting this happen. Let’s fucking make them question their worth and ability and place in the world and make them feel like the utter sacks of fucking shit they are until they fucking fix this and every case like this.

Tumblr, you clearly seriously need better workshops on rape, consent and even how to understand harassment. I’m sure you all are great people but like would it hurt to ensure that your staff has proper training on how to deal with stuff like this?

Me uno a la tristeza y desesperanza generalizada de hoy, que horror!

La semana pasada cerré un ciclo de muchísimos aprendizajes. Y de manera inmediata comencé a transitar un nuevo camino, el camino de la conexión y la auto conciencia.  El fin de semana pasado recibí un maravilloso regalo que me dispongo a compartir: amor y sanación. Ana Maria Ortiz
