Hey friends, I just got a text from a friend asking for advice for her friend, a gay trans woman who was told today at her workplace that she is no longer permitted to use the women’s restroom and must either use the mens room or set up “scheduled quarantined bathroom breaks.” She’s located in the state of Oregon, for reference if anyone has legal advice. She’s planning on taking legal action but my friend was looking for suggestions for her in the meantime. Does anyone have any advice I can pass along?
if anyone has any information, please let C know!
i don’t know these people, but my friend linked me to this gofundme account, which i’ll quote from:
My name is Matt Jones and I am a transgendered (FTM - female to male), disabled individual from North Wales, UK. Myself and my fiancé Charlie are in desperate need of moving expenses so we can move to a safer place.
I currently live in a small town in North Wales, and as nice as the countryside is, this is no place for transpeople. Over the past three years of living here we have received transphobic and homophobic comments, had rotting trash posted into our mail box and even had our shared bike set on fire. Needless to say, we do not feel safe living here and we have been searching for somewhere to go.
It is also important for us to move to England for our transgender treatment. It took the Welsh NHS over 6 years to prescribe me with hormones, even though I met all the conditions needed. I am now on a waiting list for top surgery, but that has also been a very long time. The NHS in England is much better structured and so will be able to help us with our medical problems much better.
they’re not asking for that much, for a gofundme account, for £2500, and have only received £150 so far. they’re offering various rewards, from postcards, sketches, illustrations and commissions. i feel like it’s genuinely possible that we as a community could help our comrades change their lives for the better.
casual racism includes:
the way people trivialize black women so much to the point where fat black women are constantly the subject of gifs and nobody will admit that it’s because they enjoy the stereotype of the “big black ghetto woman” doing something like “ahh praise da lawd” or “ohh babe” or some shit like that
the fact that this got no notes speaks volumes about how in denial you people are
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)
And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover
The Pokemon Center site announced the up-coming Little Tails Part 2 promo, including the first merch shot.
More information coming soon.
