Hasbro Toys To Kids: Girls Cook, Boys Work (They're Really Saying That!)

Someone update Hasbro’s calendar. It’s 2012, not 1950.

Sign the petition to ask Hasbro to feature males on the packaging and in promotional materials for the Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven, as well as offering the product in different, non gender specific colors, i.e. primary colors. Please, sign this petition, help me in creating gender equality, and help the children of today become what they’re destined to be tomorrow.

A real OkCupid conversation

Ignorant Offender:
you are very interesting. id like to get to know more about your views. so would you call yourself a sex addict?
The Offended (Me):
No.
Ignorant Offender:
So you're curious about it?
The Offended:
About being a sex addict? I am fully aware of sex addiction - and I'm not addicted. I'm rather insulted that you mentioned it. What were you thinking?
Ignorant Offender:
Well I didn't mean to offend you. I was reading your profile and I thought...I thought wrong. Sorry for the confusion.
The Offended:
What about my profile made you think I might be addicted to sex? Because I enjoy physical pleasure and intimacy?
Ignorant Offender:
Hmmm yea. You talk more about it then then the average profile. But like I said my mistake. I guess when I messaged you I was hoping you would explain it to me more.
The Offended:
Just because a person (a woman) enjoys sex, is educated about it, and willing to talk about it, doesn't mean they are addicted. Society has put these unfair expectations on us to behave in certain ways (ie, not enjoy sex) and stigmatizes anyone who chooses to behave differently, regardless of whether there's any harm done. I choose to counteract such societal restrictions and judgments by being open and honest about who I am, what I like, and educating others on sexuality, discrimination, and privilege.

I made a coming out comic for facebook. Have a happy coming out day, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Great way to come out

i <3 this. a lot.

My favorite part is the request to never use the word “tranny” - I hate that word and the connotation it always carries. I want to be better about asking people not to use that word. I want to be a better advocate of my transgender peers.

LGBTQ* Intersex Documentaries You Should Keep On Your Radar

INTERSEXION

(Following text from the documentary’s website:)

The first question any new parent asks… “Is it a boy or a girl?”

What if it’s neither?

1 in 2,000 babies is born with genitalia so ambiguous that the doctors cannot easily answer this question.

In this groundbreaking documentary, intersex individuals reveal the secrets of their unconventional lives – and how they have navigated their way through this strictly male/female world, when they fit somewhere in between.
