“The GENDER book is a fun, colorful, community-based resource, which illustrates the beautiful diversity of gender - a sort of gender 101 for anyone and everyone.”

This is a poem from Brave New Voices, a national spoken word competition for high school students. It’s called “Hir” and it made me cry. As you can infer from the title, it’s about being trans*. You should watch it. I know you’re likely going to scroll past it, but this is something that’s really worth watching.
Attention all SOFFAs of transmen and -women and genderqueer individuals! If you have a story to tell, a picture you took, art to share, poem to read, video to show, PLEASE SUBMIT TO ME!
As has been noted to me recently, this blog is skewed toward the ftm side of things because I am a partner of an ftm (and it is easier to find things on those relationships). I highly encourage anyone to submit—I won’t turn anything relevant away, but especially those partners/friends/family/other allies of transwomen and genderqueer individuals.
Relationships video for the collab channel OurCommunity11 (lgbt). Filling in for my homie brandi. It may be laggalicious but it’ll be okay.

ok. i have numerous transgender friends, but to me they arent transmen/women. they are MALE or FEMALE. not ftm or mtf. let me explain.
ok, i know a few people who are trans men. some openly say they are trans men, rather than calling themselves just men and some call themselves just men…
I found out recently that one of my friends is gender queer/questioning zir gender identity, and because of gender queer/trans members of tumblr offering so many resources, I was able to be an ally as well as a friend. Hearts in all of your general directions. <3333
Yay for Tumblr! And yay for ronithebear’s friend! And ronithebear! And exclamation marks! <3
A few weeks ago I made this post about being irked when genderqueer folks use they/their/them in reference to themselves as singular beings.
Then I found this blog entry that really helped me understand how there are many ways this can be correct. I am a humble human being who is not afraid to admit when I am wrong, so I’m passing this along.
While I am a huge advocate for the singular “they” and encourage my students to use it rather than the bulky “he or she,” I know I am not the authority on it… so here’s a link to someone talking about this.
Berkeley, Calif., officials are working with the city’s providers to offer transgender health…
Transgender Basics is a 20 minute educational film on the concepts of gender and transgender people. It’s pretty good in-a-nutshell!
