littlemisslucifer asked: I feel like if the * got put after gender instead of trans it'd seem like it was saying that it was also referring to transracial and transabled and that shit which is obviously just ewwww
Yeah and that’s just no.
Yeah and that’s just no.
Well, the * just sort of makes it more of an umbrella term.
Trans* includes binary and nonbinary folks, androgynes, agender, neutrois, demigirls and -guys, genderfluid folks, and other genders that I haven’t covered. :3
I usually put the asterisk after trans* (trans*folk, trans*people, trans*gender) because it covers more than just the implied binary of transmen and -women that simply “transgender” does.
(God I hope that made sense. XD)
Lesbians have it so good! All the straight men LOVE them!

This also goes for trans*folk, especially trans*women.
CALL FOR WORK:
I am working on a follow-up to The Black Female Body: A Photographic History, which I co-authored with Deborah Willis and which was published almost 11 years ago (and is long out of print). The follow-up volume will focus solely on the representation of black women by black women artists.
I am seeking work by contemporary African diaspora women photographic artists that addresses the black female body. This can include representational work, the absence of the body (eg., landscapes), etc.—however you’re conceptualizing black women’s bodies.
Please send your information/links to bodies of work/queries, etc., firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30, 2013.
I hope it’s okay if I reblog this for my POC followers?
I like my butt. :D
I feel like I’m doing some good with this blog, and I like that.
(I am gonna send this to the first ten people who show up in notifications on this blog.)
it makes me really uncomfortable when queer people call straight people “breeders” because
1. it’s almost always gay men whom I see using it and the way they reduce women to their reproductive capabilities is a little skin-crawling
2. it totally erases the fact that some queer people do have heterosexual relationships oh wait I forgot bisexuals don’t count as queer or whatever that bullshit story is
3. it also erases the fact that “breeding” is completely possible in some same-gender relationships; trans* people exist, you’ll recall
4. black women were assessed on their breeding capabilities and called “breeders” as a measure of their worth as slaves so how about we just don’t
FUCKING THANK YOU
“Breeder” is NOT a slur against straight people but it is problematic and can we please not use it.
