This Probably Exists

Some things are here. I thought you'd enjoy them

Privacy is a privilege. It is rarely enjoyed by women or transgender men and women, queer people or people of color. When you are an Other, you are always in danger of having your body or some other intimate part of yourself exposed in one way or another. A stranger reaches out and touches a pregnant woman’s belly. A man walking down the street offers an opinion on a woman’s appearance or implores her to smile. A group of teenagers driving by as a person of color walks on a sidewalk shout racial slurs, interrupting their quiet.

For most people, privacy is little more than an illusion, one we create so we can feel less vulnerable as we move through the world, so we can believe some parts of ourselves are sacred and free from uninvited scrutiny. The further away you are from living as a white, heterosexual, middle-class man, the less privacy you enjoy – the more likely your illusions of privacy will be shattered when you least expect it.

Gender wage gap stalls in 2013

The average woman working full time, year round made 78 percent of what a man with similar employment made in 2013, according to the latest data from the Census Bureau, a slight but not statistically different increase from 77 percent in 2012. There hasn’t been a significant increase since 2007.

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.

The True Trayvon Martin

  • He didn’t eat pork bc his father didn’t. Once his uncle fixed pork chops; they smelled so good,he called them “beef chops” & ate 1.
  • He was passionate about aviation.
  • When he volunteered at a soup kitchen for. The first time, he was astounded by the US hunger crisis.
  • He loved his little cousins birthday parties. Even as a teen, he wasn’t too cool for Chuck E. Cheese.
  • He was modest about saving his father from dying in a house fire. His father called him his best friend bc of it.
  • Hoodies made *him* feel safe. Like so many teens (and adults), he wore them as a protective shell, a security garment.
  • He called his dad, “My ol’ boy.” Lord, how he loved his dad.
  • When folks wanted to tease him, they said, “Boy, you too skinny to take a breath.” And he’d just smile.
  • If he wanted to hang out with his cousins and they had chores, he helped so they could finish faster.
  • His uncle said they never had to ask him to do something twice.
  • At 17, he was still into BMX bikes. He could cat-walk wheelie.
  • The tattoo on his wrist read, “Sybrina.”
  • The tattoo on his chest read, “Cora” — his grandmother’s name.
  • I’m going to stop here. But just claim one of these memories I tweeted. Carry part of this boy with you, write him on your heart.
  • Write the beautiful details of all the black children you meet on your heart. That’s where they’ll be safest.
  • I feel like this stuff is important.

All facts about Trayvon are from this Esquire article.

I will never forget Trayvon. Never.

Cheap $15 binding. This is a power core compression bra by C9 at target. I am a B cup but my roomie who is a D cup uses is too and it works ok for him

UPDATED My name is Alexander O’Brien. I am the OP [source] in this post. If everyone who reblogged the original post donated just 1 dollar I could afford my top surgery. Over 7 thousand people reblogged that post… my surgery only costs $6000 plus travel/medicine/cost of living.

I am trying to save up money for surgery on my own to get my chest reconstructed to reflect a male chest but it is slow going.. I do work full time at Lowe’s and put away all the money that I can. In addition I plan to save most if not all of next year’s tax returns so that should add close to $1000. I just could use a little help.

I do want to get surgery sooner rather then later for one big reason, otherwise I could wait. My fiancee and I want to get married. For our own protection we would like to get married once I am legally male so we can get a marriage that is legally recognized in all 50 states and by the federal government. And to become legally male I need an “irreversible” surgery. So please, if you could, consider donating to help support my savings goal! :) We would be eternally grateful to any and all contributions to our goal.

**NOTE: Should I happen to exceed my goal for top surgery I promise to donate the surplus to another guy (or guys) in need of surgery. Regardless of if I exceed my goal, I plan to pay it forward and donate to guys once I am post op. **

This is the lovely couple you will be supporting. We have been together a total of 4 years and have know each other for 10+ years. She makes me incredibly happy and I can not wait to hold her hand as we pledge to each other and to our families that we will do right be each other for the rest of our lives.
