|trans women:||*describes how the category of sex can't be separated from gender when applied to people, how it has been historically used to justify colonialism, how it developed out of a need to naturalize women's subjugation, how it is not even scientifically accurate*
|non trans women:||ah but did you know you have a y chromosome? and your doctor needs to know you are a male so they can give you the male medicine for your male organs, which are male. i'm only calling you a male for your health.
As promised, here are some pictures of Lyalya’s first walk outside! Look at the bushy little squirrel tail :D the sandpit was her favorite spot! She was extremely excited and threw sand all over the place
"I was on the cover of Time magazine in June, and that same month, four trans women of color were murdered in the United States. So just because I got an Emmy nomination doesn’t mean the lives of trans people aren’t in peril every day.” - Laverne Cox
"Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself."

which effectively shuts out of professional careers the very people who are most likely to be in dire need of income
I see your bullshit
