Pieces of Bird

Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.

She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

Please reblog to raise awareness!

signal boost, please!

have you ever brought up a topic like ableism or misogyny or cissexism around people you love and trust and just seen the boredom and exasperation and ‘here we go again’ in their eyes and suddenly felt a little bit less safe

If Netflix gave food suggestions: Since you enjoyed tacos you might also like Swedish meatballs, dog food, or a bag of rocks.

You don’t have to be arrested to be a considered a real activist.

cosign. And fuck anyone who tries to diminish your activism because you haven’t been arrested and/or refuse to put yourself at risk of being arrested. Which, let’s be honest, Black folks are always at risk of being arrested when we’re just walking down the damn street. So, no, my activism, my movement work, is not predicated on the notion that I or anyone needs to interact with the police state any more than we already fucking have to. And if yours is, you need to stay way to fuck away from me.

just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out. 

these are fantastic!  i’m so excited to see femmepowered and open gates MHC create a similar campaign at mount holyoke.  i know both colleges are worried (to varying degrees) about reactions from alumnae, but this alumna supports you—and trans women’s inclusion—100%.

PRAISE BE

Wendy’s is doing the same thing.
Will wonders never cease.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.
Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.

Oh, ew.

How To Be Femmephobic While Liking Traditionally Feminine Things

I don’t want to take away from the fact that it’s being somewhat progressive - and that, hopefully, people will start to apply this to other areas.
But it’s adult privilege and male privilege that some McDonald’s restaurants were compelled to do this because of objection from adult men. They didn’t do it for little girls. They didn’t do it for little boys, either. And they didn’t even do it for adult women. It took a fandom comprised of adult men to make the move.
