Celebrating Butch: A Powerful Photo Collection on Female Masculinity by Meg Allen

“BUTCH is a celebration of those who choose to exist and identify outside of this binary that has never allowed any accepted crossover. BUTCH is inviting viewers into private lives of female masculinity and suggesting a resilience in nature’s insistence that there is more depth to masculinity and femininity than societal norms care to entertain.”

I just found THIS AMAZING WEBSITE called Trans Birth.  It is “a directory created to connect trans* and gender non-conforming people and their families to midwives, OBGYNs, and doulas who provide welcoming care to our communities.”
WHHHAAATTTT???  I’m sending them a blurb as we speak so that I can be listed on their directory.
Providers - sign up!!  It’s quick and easy.  Let’s make this an awesome resource for trans people!!

This is so cool and amazing!

Link for y’all.

I hate it when people politicize food consumption

Hate it

Like you never had only $20 in your bank account and could only afford to eat Kraft for a week man

Shut the fuck up. 

I understand that Monsanto is the devil and I hate them and I hate monoculture agriculture too

But don’t penalize the people who don’t have the means to make a ~*~ideological lifestyle~*~ out of their food choices

Feeling this so much lately. Recognize people’s economic realities.

I had no one to help me, but then T. S. Eliot helped me.

So when people say that poetry is a luxury, or an option, or for the educated middle classes, or that it shouldn’t be read at school because it is irrelevant, or any of the strange stupid things that are said about poetry and its place in our lives, I suspect that the people doing the saying have had things pretty easy. A tough life needs a tough language – and that is what poetry is. That is what literature offers – a language powerful enough to say how it is.

It isn’t a hiding place. It is a finding place.

fail splendidly. fail comfortably. use failure as a redirect. not a result of your worth or value. fail beautifully.
