I was sitting on a picnic table in a wine grape orchard talking to my darling about life when I noticed this perfect om sign growing on one of the vines. I still can’t fully believe my eyes looking at this picture. It was such a beautiful sight to see, the universe is a trickster!
This is so fucking cool
whats the craziest thing youve ever done?
omg okay so one time (i think it was sophomore year) i was sitting in class and my teacher, out of no where, says “i can see your bra strap through your shirt hanna” and i looked down and you literally couldn’t see it unless you were blatantly staring at my chest so i said, “well i can’t” and he says “you need to go change your shirt” and i said i didnt have another shirt so hes like then go home and i had a burning hatred for this teacher
i still do because it was like he went out of his way everyday to piss me off so i stood up and took off my bra under my shirt, dropped it on the floor next to my desk and sat down.
i was suspended for a week.
this is the most amazing thing I have ever read. I swear to god this gives me life.

We’ve made sure to instill pride in all of our nieces and nephews. It’s hard however when you have other Black kids who feel otherwise.
Make sure you tell a Black girl and/or boy that they are beautiful today. Tell them their hair is beautiful and their skin is gorgeous. We have to rebuild the esteems of the kids in our community.

This photo always cheers me up a bit. It’s a front-page article from 1955 about Christine Jorgensen, one of the first women to have sex-reassignment surgery.
Since the text is a bit small and I couldn’t find a larger copy, here’s what the small blurb says:
A World of a Difference
George W. Jorgensen, Jr., son of a Bronx carpenter, served in the Army for two years and was given honorable discharge in 1946. Now George is no more. After six operations, Jorgensen’s sex has been changed and today she is a striking woman, working as a photographer in Denmark. Parents were informed of the big change in a letter Christine (that’s her new name) sent to them recently.
This article is 58 years old, and it’s more respectful of Christine’s pronoun choices and name than some publications are today. It makes me happy to see a newspaper be respectful of a trans person’s choice of name and pronouns like that :3
If someone from literally one of the most intolerant decades in recent history can respectfully write about trans women current journalists have no excuse.
