I couldn't open a checking account with Chase. I tried online, got flagged, then went in person with my social security card, non-driver's ID, and name change documentation, and still got turned down.
I couldn't buy my current cell phone through the usual channels at my phone company. I got flagged, even though I was trying to outright buy it instead of getting it on lease. I had to argue with people all day and go to two different stores to buy it.
Just now, I couldn't create an online account for a new bank account I went in person to open. I couldn't be verified and now I have to call customer service.

imo pride celebrations should be refocused on small, intimate gatherings and i like muted colors more than rainbow so everyone could wear all black (and don't forget covid, wear a face mask!) and we could do bonfires or something. or something

I made the #qtbipoc pride flag some years ago, on my playvicious account. I've had very few people actually ask to use it, but it has beenused in many many places. The latest is the Blue's Clues Pride video (it's about 30 seconds in)

The license for this image is pretty simple, all queer or trans BIPOC can plaster it all over their accounts as desired. Queer trans BIPOC-led org can use it as well with just attribution. Everyone else has to ask and probably pay me. Blue's Clues of course did not ask me or even bother to attribute it to me.

Is #pride really for #BIPOC, even though we started it? Corporate pride obviously doesn't think so, which pride definitely doesn't think so.

(1/?)

gender snark 

love how for trans people you need multiple studies to conclude "turns out the best way to find out what people want is to ask them what they want and listen to them telling you what they want"

reminder that the former chief deputy public defender for my county specifically said "don't talk to cops"

even casually. even if they're investigating something nearby and looking for witnesses. don't talk to cops.
