Please counter spam any tags that you know of with nice, fluffy, or relevant images. Channers can be pretty fugly and persistent, and they have probably been planning this shit for up to a year, if not longer. The tactics to discredit Black Feminist and Women of Color on Twitter (paticulary the reporting IP disinfo) is downright striking, if not almost a carbon-copy.
Avoid the /pol trolls at all costs and stay safe, okay?
one of the weirdest beliefs anti sj types seem to have is that people cannot be part of more than one marginalized group at once
trans AND black? nope.
disabled AND bisexual?? never.
asian AND intersex AND disabled? now youre just weaving tapestries of fantasy.
it’s like we’re spending “character points” or something to be what we are
male/white/abled/cis/straight is the ~default~ character setting and for every step away from that, we have to spend points. if you spend your points on being black and bi, you can’t ALSO be trans! that’s just not REALISTIC
I’m reblogging this because yesterday Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the anti-gay bill I talked about in this comic into law.
This bill includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for gay sex. It includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for being in a gay marriage. The directors of any NGOs (including Sexual Minorities Uganda) found guilty of “promotion of homosexuality” face SEVEN YEARS IN JAIL.
This is the real stuff, people. Many of the folks I drew in this comic were just named directly by a tabloid newspaper and are fearing an imminent witch hunt.
A lot of the blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders of one man, Scott Lively, and his global campaign of homophobia. Please go read the full comic I did last month for the Center for Constitutional Rights that explains their legal case against him.
REFUGE restrooms is now live on the web at http://www.refugerestrooms.org. It is viewable on any browser.
REFUGE seeks to provide safe bathroom access for transgender, intersex, and other gender nonconformist individuals. A few months back the valuable safe2pee database stopped working. We present Refuge as a replacement. Starting with the existing database of listings from Safe2Pee, refuge makes the database easily searchable and mappable to allow folks to find the nearest safe restroom.This is very much in its alpha stage and had a lot of growing to do. I started learning how to code not that long ago so I’m still learning how I can make the app better and better. The app is open source so please contribute to the project on github @http://www.github.com/tkwidmer/refugerestroomsstay tuned both here and on twitter @refugerestrooms.
I want lgbt book stores, lgbt coffee houses, and lgbt theaters to replace lgbt bars as centers of community, places to meet people, and lgbt rights of passage.
YES. i am so fucking TIRED of every queer event being at a bar or another 21+ venue, especially when alcoholism is a thing for so many, esp. queer youth, and community isolation is such a major factor in so many suicides.
Cafe Southside is an example, if anyone wants one!
