“if i step on your foot accidentally it shouldn’t hurt you and i won’t say i’m sorry because my intentions were good”
apparently i found a canon trans lady in the battle maison
don’t black belt women exist tho
black belts are an all-male trainer class within the game.
OH duh. right. i took this complete out of context. it’s pokemon.
This is just a mis-translation you fuck heads
I hate to break your bubble, but no, it’s not. In Japanese, she says
which literally means “To think I was a Black Belt just half a year ago. Modern medicine sure is amazing!”
as an extra bonus, Black Belts are referred to in Japanese as カラテおう, which means “karate king” and is explicitly male.
(extra extra bonus: she is a known thing in the Japanese fandom and there is (somewhat tasteless) fanart of her.)
tl;dr keep your stupid transphobic assumptions to yourself, moron
if you can learn to pronounce:

HUSSIE YOU BEAUTIFUL GENIUS YOU
So in the 16th century the Ottoman royal family kept fighting over the throne, so they made this decree that a ruler could legally kill off his brothers after taking the throne in order to stop them from trying to overtake him.
SO WHAT THEY DID WAS EXECUTE THEM BY STRANGLING THEM WITH A SILK BOW STRING
TO AVOID SHEDDING ROYAL BLOOD
C’mon guys reblog my gog-darned post it has historical relevance.
This practically made me cry. How could this ever be okay?
[Image: An illustration is labeled as a “partial birth abortion”. It shows a person performing an intact dilation and extraction, which is described at the bottom of the image: “The surgeon pulls the fetus into the breech position. He forced scissors into the skull, removes them and inserts a suction catheter through which he suctions out the skull contents.”]
I’m going to tell you a story that my tenth grade biology teacher told me.
So, my teacher had a friend. She was happily married, a Christian, and pregnant. She and her husband were extremely excited about the pregnancy and they couldn’t wait to be parents. She was pretty far along - probably about 7 month in. She went to get a check-up, and her doctor checked out the fetus. Well, it turns out her fetus had hydrochephalus. In this particular case, the fetus’s head had not and would not form enough to even hold the brain inside the skull. If the woman continued the pregnancy, she would give birth to a dead baby, and that’s if it didn’t die in utero and possibly cause sepsis before she had the opportunity to give birth.
So, and this was before the “partial birth abortion ban” was enacted (not when the story was told, but when it took place), the woman opted to get an intact dilation and extraction procedure (since that’s the proper medical term, “partial birth abortion” is a made up term and has no medical relevance).
Do you know what that allowed her to do? What that allows a lot of uterus-bearers in the same predicament to do?
She was able to hold her dead, intact fetus and mourn for it.
Now, she would have to get a procedure that literally rips the fetus apart, since apparently anti-choicers looking for a means to chip away at Roe v Wade think that this is a better alternative to the described procedure above. As the law currently stands, it is now impossible for people like the woman I described to have their fetuses aborted intact so that they can hold them like they wanted to. It is impossible for women like the one I described to have a body to mourn over.
So good job. Because you’re too ignorant to actually know why uterus-bearers get late-term abortion, specifically intact D & X procedures, you’ve essentially made it much harder for those that are experiencing the difficult choice to end a wanted pregnancy to mourn and move on.
But hey, go ahead and continue to consider yourself compassionate. I guess ignorance really is bliss, especially when you can hold up illustrations of medical procedures you don’t understand and hide behind them as if they have any meaning in the face of the reality that you refuse to acknowledge.
There is a petition right now that asks the US government to recognize non-binary genders on all legal documents, but it has just over 2 weeks left and only has nearly 27,000 signs, but we need to get to it 100,000 immediately for it to pass.
I know this is different from the usual blog content here, but I thought maybe you could help spread the word, since this petition applies to many people who follow or submit photos to this blog. here is a link to the petition, please please please sign/signal boost!
The promiscuity myth has roots in Southern slaveholding society, which operated by a gendered social and moral code. The Victorian ideal of true womanhood required strict adherence to a code of piety, purity, submissiveness, and domesticity—virtues believed to be inherent in feminine nature. Victorian social codes clearly divided public and private realms, made white men the sole authorities in their homes, and stripped married white women of their property and legal personhood. It also advanced beliefs in the essential chastity, innocence, and weakness of women. African American women’s lives and labors in the antebellum South contrasted sharply with this iconic womanhood. Black women were subjected to forced nudity during slave auctions. They often labored in fields with skirts hiked up. They were punished on plantations by being whipped in partial or total nudity. They were banned from legal marriage. The myth of black women as lascivious, seductive, and insatiable was a way of reconciling the forced public exposure and commoditization of black women’s bodies with the Victorian ideals of women’s modesty and fragility. The idea that black women were hypersexual beings created space for white moral superiority by justifying the brutality of Southern white men.
If This Bill Passes, It Would Close SeaWorld's Shamu Stadium
Five months since CNN first aired the SeaWorld documentary Blackfish, the Oscar-shortlisted film continues to make waves. After a series of high-profile protests against SeaWorld for alleged mistreatment of its orcas, a Blackfish-inspired California legislator is now taking the fight to the next level: to free the orcas that are in captivity for human entertainment.
On Friday, Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) introduced a draft of the Orca Welfare and Safety Act to the California legislature, which would ban orca performances as well as breeding or transporting the animal across state lines. Existing orcas would be retired to sea pens or displayed for educational reasons.
"There is no justification for the continued captive display of orcas for entertainment purposes," Bloom said in a public statement. "These beautiful creatures are much too large and far too intelligent to be confined in small, concrete tanks for their entire lives. It is time to end the practice of keeping orcas captive for human amusement."
