Things that TERFs are mad about
"We're losing our butches to The Trans Movement 😔" is such a fucking stupid terf brainworm
1) butches aren't "yours"
2) you don't get to claim certain kinds of gender nonconformity while hating trans people. Bye
3) I promise you that butch lesbians (and nb butches, and trans butches, and bi butches, and all other kinds of butches) still exist, idiots!
4) your violent crusade against gender expressions you disagree with is hurting "your butches"!
5) die mad
the #ASL word for "trans" is the same morpheme as "beautiful" but signed over your heart, where you'd sign self 😭

Parenting, coming out
So the thing that finally made me come out to kiddo was he was saying he thinks he likes boys too but he feels judged by people who think he's just making it up or being a "poser" or something. I said listen kid I'm bi myself and other people don't make you who you are. If you date a guy, that doesn't make you bi or pan. Of you date a woman, that doesn't make you straight. You are who you are and people will either get that or choose not to, but it's nothing to with you.
so some musings on building a better masculinity while not falling into gender essentialism
It's International Men's Day!
Hello, fellow men!!
Things that are good about teh menz:
* Trans men
* Showing emotional vulnerability
* When we stand up for others with less gender privilege
* Being good role models for boys
Things that we need to work on:
* Toxic masculinity
All toughness all the time isn't sustainable!

"Our attack alarms are a pebble-sized device which attaches to your keys or bag. The alarm is meant to startle or warn off potential attackers and alert passers-by that an incident could be taking place. The alarm itself comes with a strong light for when travelling in the dark and a trigger that when pulled, releases an extremely loud alarm.
We will send them out to any trans+ person in the UK completely free of charge, just send us your address via the form below."
