"America, it’s land of choices, yes? Freedom to be me, freedom to be you. Mcdonald’s, Burger King on same block. You choose one, both. Shit maybe we go to Wendy’s instead."
Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”
””“”“why did you cut your hair?::”“”“” i cut my hair to piss you off. specifially you, i was thinking of you when i cut my hair. i was thinking that you, specifically, would be interested in what my newly short hair meant to you, specifically.
you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.
Thank YOU HOLY SHIT
I hate that this is going around again.
Especially because if the first line wasn’t there it would be completely relevant.
Saying that the sexualization of young girls is a problem is not slut shaming.
Saying that our society encourages young girls to have sex and that’s a problem is not slut shaming.
Saying that girls should be mature and educated about sex before having it is not slut shaming?!?
Slut shaming is blaming those 13 and 14 year olds for their own sexualization rather than the society responsible.
THAT IS A PROBLEM.
