By the 1980s, advertisers had created such a strong association between pink and femininity that pink was "toxic" for boys and men. The fact that the opposite was less true, and that it was not considered humiliating for women to wear light blue, is a remarkable reflection of societal misogyny. You may remember that it was a big deal when men started wearing pink button-ups in the late 2000s. And we're only now letting go of the pink/blue gendering of children's clothes.
All of the above information was from the work of historians Jo Paoletti and Hanne Blank, and was shamelessly regurgitated from the podcast "Every Little Thing."
#PrideMonth isn't about being proud of our sexuality or gender. It's about being proud of surviving & continuing to fight against the oppression we've faced our entire lives -- oppression we continue to face every day.
Meanwhile, #StraightPride is a deliberate attempt to change the narrative, to discount all our hard work, all our fighting and sacrifice, & reframe it into the "pride in our sexuality/gender" shit.
#Pride will never be for the ruling class. It will always be for the oppressed.

trans help needed, donations (mh mention) Show more
Hey, my enbyfriend @kiilas is trans and struggles intensely with dysphoria in certain ways.
I'm our only source of income. I'm able to afford HRT, but I'm unable to afford hair removal treatment for them and this is a really debilitating issue for them and severely impacts their daily functioning.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated. https://paypal.me/mutantstandard
I'm trying the official Firefox extension "Firefox Multi-Account containers", seems interesting :)
If you use it, when you open a website in a container, you can click on the extension icon to check "Always open in $container_name" or right click within the page and in the extension menu click on the "always open in $container_name" :)

EU LGBTI Survey II, exclusion [1/5] Show more
The EU's Fundamental Rights Agency is conducting a survey on LGBTI people following their 2012 instalment: https://lgbtisurvey.eu/
At the start you must reply what your sexual orientation is: "Gay"/"Lesbian", "Bisexual", "Straight" or "Other, please specify". If one is not Trans nor Intersex, and used the latter option to specify their orientation as Pansexual, Asexual, Grey-Ace, Demisexual, etc., they'll be excluded from the survey at that point.

Everybody's just making it up as they go.
It's normal to fake it until you make it.
As a matter of fact, in many cases, you may find that you are only motherfucker in the room that actually knows what they are talking about.
