"We've moved beyond the idea that women wearing pants is a problem. Women wearing pants is powerful, it's strong, everybody accepts it, and it's associated with the patriarchy, it's associated with being male. The minute a man puts on a dress it's disgusting, so what are you saying? Men are strong, women are disgusting? I'm not doing that anymore. I'm done with that. I'm a man in a dress and if I feel like wearing a dress I'm gonna wear one." - Billy Porter

YO! PSA time!
I'm a psychiatric nurse practitioner, means I prescribe and manage psych meds, I'm a trans poly queer that likes helping out the folks who have less of a share of the pie than the rest. You got some medical questions? You got some psych question specifically? Feel free to hit me up for some free-ass informal advice! Consider it a perk of being not a white cishet! :heart_pride:

Capital-G Gamers: incredibly angry that game freak isn't allowing you to import all 800 old pokemon species into the new pokemon game

Capital-G Gamers: think adding a girl, a black person, or a queer person to a game is too much work and a waste of resources

I need to find a trans community in NW Florida. I feel like I'm slowly falling to pieces, unable to present as male. If you're in the area, especially the Bay County area, can you please get in touch with me?

If you're not, can you please boost this so that area residents can see this?

Darling! I was leisurely browsing YouTube, which I never do, and look what I came across!

Ahhhh, the lovely little joy of having a random conversation with someone who was randomly walking by the office of someone you were on a conference call with, and reigniting your lust over a specific mechanical keyboard...

And my coworker dropped what is likely the best # in my lap this morning, and totally applicable to this particular toot...

Tis the season when Sir Chubbs is determined to prove his love for me by draping himself over me even though the temperature is approximately eleventy billion degrees - he loves me for me and not just my body heat and status as bringer of the food...

Thoughts from an 'ally' to 'allies' 

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”

update: I didn't know, but a few years ago there was a contest to create music videos for three Elton John hits, and this is the one for "Rocket Man", by Iranian filmmaker Majid Adin. It draws on his experience as a refugee fleeing political persecution: youtu.be/DtVBCG6ThDk

Can anyone take this sweet dog?
My parents took him in temporarily so his owner wouldn’t kill him (ugh), and have taken care of him for a while now.

Unfortunately, they sold their house and are moving somewhere he cannot go.

He’s submissive around people and other dogs. When he met our 4 dogs, he just rolled over to show his belly.

If you can take him in and give him a permanent home, please let me know.

We are in the Dallas area, but will gladly drive a few hours to meet up with someone.

Rad patterns recently released an off shoulder unisex #sewing pattern and it's refreshing to see the diversity in the tester pictures + everyone looking fly!

The pattern is free with a code, but for everyone not using the code, 100% will go to translifeline.org
Pretty neat.
