Thank you very much.
Yeah, Ellen Page came out. Great. But while we’re at it, let’s not assume anything about someone’s sexuality just because you think you know. Stop saying, “It’s about time,” or “Took you long enough.” You didn’t know she was a lesbian. You assumed, and let’s be honest here. You don’t like when people assume things about you. So stop assuming things about other people. Practice what you preach. Thank you. That is all.
Hey guys my name is Alex and Im a Pansexual FTM if anyone wants to add//follow me feel free :D <3
don't listen to that last anon. you're doing a great job running this blog with your trans partner. keep up the good work
What makes you think it's okay to be a cis person running a trans blog? It's complete bullshit, and quite offensive.
I ran this blog for a year and a half without anyone knowing that I’m a cisgender male. With the exception of a few people. And I did that on purpose because of messages like this. I ran the blog for A YEAR AND A HALF, pretty well, I might add, and no one said anything. As soon as I revealed my identity, I had tons of support, and very few negative messages. I have never once claimed to be a good ally. In fact, I know there is tons of room for improvement. I’m a privileged person. White. Male. Cisgender. Tall. I’ll admit to all of that. But, I will never claim to be a good ally, because that’s not what being an ally is about. I figure being a privileged person, I owe it to those who aren’t so privileged to give then a fucking voice in the world. Give them a space where they can show off their pride, without fear of retribution or backlash from people. And I will continue to do that, because it’s the right thing to do.
And besides, if you actually pay attention. This blog is co run by myself and a trans person.
Help Aiden raise money for top surgery! Aiden is a 21 year old trans* man who is in great need of top surgery. He is a psychology major in his last year of undergraduate school. He is working on getting his degree in gender therapy in order to help other trans* individuals. On top of college pressures, he’s also helping to raise his niece and is unable to support himself on the small salary he earns by working a retail job. He’s on his own journey to fully transition into the man he knew he was. It is extremely expensive and he’s a college student wanting to get a doctorate so, in other words, he’s looking forward to a future full of debt! It won’t be in vain— he will get top surgery (hopefully with help from you wonderful people) and return by helping gender confused individuals with therapy.
Signal boosting a friend!
Signal boosting again.
Me: Mom there’s this concert-
Okay, so I know I made a huge announcement about having a friend of mine help me run this blog, well… Plans have changed.
I wanted you all to welcome Blake, the new co moderator of FuckYeahTransPride.
Soon, he’ll be making his introduction post so you can all get to know him, and then we’ll hopefully get this blog up and running the way it used to be, which is something I look forward to.
Thanks for reading, and thank you all for following!
I’m a male. I was born a male. I like the idea of masculinity, but I don’t want that to be what being a male is about. I hate that it is. That expression, ‘makes you a man’, and ‘it’ll put some hair on your chest’. I don’t like those. I don’t want hair on my chest, or anywhere else but my face and on the top of my head for that matter. You can keep that other body hair, I don’t want it. Masculinity is not about body hair.
I’m sick of the comparison of body hair and masculinity.
This poem was written and performed by Erin Upchurch in 2011 as a part of the Columbus, OH Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year, we wanted to bring it back. With the recent murder of Cemia “Cece” Dove from Cleveland, OH and many other members of the trans community, this poem really hits home for us.
Please support the Ohio Transgender community by attending one of the local TDOR events:
11/20 Cincinnati-7pm at Fountain Square (Fifth and Vine Street)
11/20 Columbus-7pm at King Ave United Methodist
11/20 Toledo-7pm at Sylvania United Church of Christ
11/22 Cleveland-5:30 pm at Huntington Park (Lakeside Avenue and West Third Street)
Thank you to all of the Trans*, Gender Non-Conforming and Allied people who took part in this video and thank you to Erin Upchurch for creating this amazing piece and allowing us to adapt it into video.
