    "It is revolutionary for any trans person to choose to be seen and visible in a world that tells us we should not exist." - Laverne Cox

    it-used-to-be-fun:

    My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

    fauxcyborg:

    with my last dying breath, I’m going to gasp out that feminism doesn’t need to be sexy, and the idea of making feminism sexy most often entails catering to male fantasies and trying to reassure men that women will still be objects of fantasy even when we achieve liberation from patriarchal demands is inevitably doomed to fail because even broadening the categories of what we count as sexy still requires women derive worth from their sexual appeal.

    It’s going to be a long breath
