Hi! I just started a tumblr, the Transgender Couchsurfing Network. After seeing dozens of posts come across my dash about displaced or homeless trans people needing places to crash, I decided that there had to be a way to organize these posts somehow, and to put those in need in contact with those willing to lend a hand. If you’re trans and need a place to stay, or if you have a couch or floor or spare bedroom available for someone in need, I urge you to reblog this post, follow the blog, and get the word out. Everything is still under heavy construction, but the more people that see and hear about this blog, the more people will be able to benefit from it! I know that there are so many people here on tumblr who are in need of a place to stay for a night or two, and I also know how many amazing, wonderful people would be willing to host someone and help out a trans person in need. We all know what a huge problem unemployment and homelessness are for trans people (especially TPOC and trans women) — even a place to stay for a night can make the biggest difference! So PLEASE, even if you can’t offer up your couch, REBLOG AND SIGNAL BOOST. I really, really think that this is something that could help a lot of people, and I would LOVE to see this spammed all over my dash and the dashes of all of my lovely followers!!
Forever reblogging this.
Hey folks, just more of this. I’ve said it a bajillion times but I’ll say it a bajillion more: I have room at my place in MA and I’m in the directory.

This spectre of rape that cis lesbian “radfems” habitually raise, centered around the supposed inherent threat of the phallus, minimizes the appalling rates of physical and sexual violence committed against trans women, particularly trans women of color and sex workers. It also twists the picture of systemic violence to make it look like trans women are a huge, systemic threat to cis lesbians when in fact trans women as a group face incredible systemic barriers in almost every aspect of life.

being a transgender person in the gender binary* means that you will be held to higher standards of femininity or masculinity than your cisgender counterparts.
*if you’re non-binary then people’s heads will just straight-up explode

This is what I aim to change in LGBTQ organizations. I want the focus to be on greater issues, more grave issues.
TW: CISSEXISM AND BRUTAL VIOLENCE
… imagine a 19-year-old girl being dropped off at an acquaintance’s home by a taxi on a Sunday night and finding three men on the lawn waiting for her. Imagine them kidnapping, torturing, decapitating, dismembering and burning her alive for sport, as young, raucous boys would to a Barbie doll. Imagine them chucking her torso on the side of a highway, with absolutely no regret or sense of immorality. Imagine being the mother called into the morgue to identify a defiled torso as your daughter. Swallow that bitter pill of reality and tell me that marriage is the most important issue for the LGBT community in 2011. For several in the transgender community, it might as well be 1969 all over again, because nothing has changed for them.
Fucking thank you. We’re getting beat the fuck up and murdered, and their biggest concern is gay marriage.
“I have nothing against marriage equality; I believe in it. But I also know that marriage means nothing if we aren’t alive or otherwise able to enjoy it.”
Yeah, the whole “we want gay marriage!” whilst I have to worry about myself or my friends getting killed all the time kinda sucks. This is why the gay community sucks balls and I don’t identify with them.
Hi, queer anarcho feminist scene! LOVE YOU!
I just want to repeat that Shelley Hillard was black.
Not just trans.
BLACK and trans. THAT MEANS SOMETHING.
We’ve been fucking saying this shit for the past 10+ years but everyone listens when a White Male blogger says it. Fuck. Dat. Noise. Honestly. People really need to start listening to Q/Trans*POCs when we talk about our oppression, we live it, WE KNOW WHAT THE FUCK WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.
I’m just mad because when white trans women get attacked, there usually is some massive ROAAAAAAAWRRRRRRRRRRRR
And I’m also tired of shit like “oh, violence against PoC queers will lead to violence against white ones”. And white queers seriously believe this. And I’m just like…
