"can i ask you something?" my immediate reply says “go for it" but my mind has already gone through the seven stages of grief
How fucked up is the entire concept of The Parent Trap? These parents have twins but want a divorce so they decide their best course of action is to just each take one and never speak to each other again.
"offended? i don’t care."
"i’m not going to tag your fake ‘triggers’ so don’t ask."
"i’m not going to call you by your made-up cutesy ‘pronouns’ :)"
bare minimum? i thought you meant bear minimum. as in the smallest amount of bears possible. which is why i brought one bear. there’s one bear. aka. the smallest amount of bears possible. i mean this is a problem but at least it’s not like. bear maximum
back to school season

The President of Mount Holyoke College, the oldest women’s school in the USA, just announced at this convocation that it will be accepting college applications from trans women.
Welcome to the community!
But Open Gates/MHC is obviously still working on dismantling transphobia/transmisogyny here— be ready to be a little :| when you read the official page. I’m going to post more on fb about this but yeah!
If anyone wants to read the official policy you can find it here. It still uses trans women as one word and as mentioned by a friend on Facebook who knows way more about this than I do, there’s still some not particularly accurate wording // considerations regarding biological sex that need to be expanded on. And as Shapes said, this is not a cure all. We still have to keep working as our Mount Holyoke community to ensure that MHC is a place that is actually safe and welcoming for all trans people by dismantling it’s own transphobia. But huzzah for a first step that we thought would be a huge uphill battle!!
I’m going to reblog this with their commentary because they are wonderful and informed people. I agree that there is some tweaking to wording that needs to be done! It’s the first step towards something really great though!
What Happened To Jennifer Lawrence Was Sexual Assault -
You’ve probably heard about the nude photographs of Jennifer Lawrence that were leaked online yesterday. The leak also included nude pictures of Kirsten Dunst, Ariana Grande, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and several other women, but, naturally, it’s Lawrence who’s drawing most of the heat because she’s super-famous right now. She’s also known for being charmingly awkward and honestly if I had to place any bets I would guess that most people were hoping that she would respond to this with some kind of hilariously crass Real Talk about sex and her body and being naked. I keep seeing comments by people who want her to provide the punchline to this joke; what they don’t seem to understand is that this is not a joke, this is a form of sexual assault.
