CN: Transphobia, violence, violence against a BIPOC Trans person 

This is so messed up. A trans woman was attacked by a co-worker who said "Let me kill you," as he attempted to murder her with a knife

This woman only survived because she GRABBED ONTO THE KNIFE!

Oh, and by the way, the attacker was released on bail!

Update: I ended up going with the VivoSmart 5. I am digging it so far, except it is very rude in telling me that I suck at sleeping...I mean I KNEW that. But there's something different about a device that tells me how abysmally bad my sleep is.

Most of the time, I'm ok with being a Tranny who doesn't pass (and probably never will), but sometimes, just for a bit, I really would do anything to have been born a cisgender girl.

there is a point where signage goes from “informative” to “am i in the looney tunes universe now and what does the coyote want from me”

Content Notes: The effects of Capitalism, global warming, cannibalism 

This means that eventually (like in the original theory) there will be no resources left and we will have no choice but to switch to cannibalism and the rich will be the first to go, because they contribute the least.

Unpopular Opinion:

Eat the rich and Capitalism includes your favorite mega-stars. ie, Tay-Tay, Beyonce, and Brendan Fraser are all included in this, are contributing more to global warming and the eventual heat death of our planet than entire towns/cities/countries.

Transphobia and Australian politics 

This is what "support" looks like from Labor. An active rollback of inclusive wording to wording specifically designed to exclude trans people

Adblocking, the necessity of 

People are like 'without advertising, how do you know about new things' and I'm like 'if their product isn't good enough for me to hear of it through recommendation/word of mouth/credible reviews, it's not good enough for me to buy'.

@justice_dazzle The United States explicitly does not forbid or endorse any religion in the First Amendment of the Constitution. Rejecting the proposed changes demonstrates that the US government no longer follows its own rules in order to allow a group of people to further persecute others in the name of religion and bigotry. Should these changes not be adopted, I expect a train of lawsuits to follow."

Feel free to copy-paste this comment:

The rights of trans people are under attack. The LIVES of trans people are under attack. This is a necessary first step to protect both. I strongly support this proposal and hope to see it implemented.

Now I'm more than 40.

I've found the love of my life just before starting HRT on my own ( very bad idea, but I felt like I could start the proper process in an easier manner in my country, at the time) more than 10 years ago.

Since my 40s birthday, I feel bad, and don't look forward to have gift... it got worse recently, as I've started having some kind of panic attacks or similar. I've realized why.

Hey everyone! If you have ever asked "what can I do to help trans rights," I have something for you.

Biden's title IX change protecting trans people in schools is open comment.

It is getting FLOODED by TERF comments.


On day 67 of his hunger strike, a Greek court has once again rejected Giannis Michailidis' appeal for release from his indefinite limbo of preventative detention. If Michailidis' dies, you can be sure that his death will not go unanswered. Anarchists in Greece are calling for international comrades to target Greek embassies and Greek capital. Solidarity is urgently needed.


Hey there y'all! I'm looking at ditching my smartwatch and just getting a fitness tracker.

Thoughts on the Garmin Vivosmart 5 vs the Fitbit Charge 5?

Or another one?

Thank you to the hivemind in advance!

Hey real shit, if you’re an anarchist with a dog and not critical of your classic training methods, huge overlooked blind spot. Absolutely wild to me that more anarchists are not Positive Reinforcement (R+) training nerds and double wild to me that there are anarchists actually rolling or hitting their dogs.

No gods no masters means you too.
