i think i prefer xe/xem pronouns over he/him but i hang on to he/him out of convenience more than anything because there’s people i know that i wouldn’t be like super comfortable coming out to (like certain acquantances, people i’m not super close friends with, anyone involved with the shool, family, etc). plus when i change things legally unless something happens within the next couple years it’s gonna be an m on my ID

You're awesome. I like you. Stay awesome my friend.

hi everyone and welcome to sleepy-beast's 3rd transgender resource giveaway! (there’s a LOT of text but please keep all of the text when you reblog it. there’s a lot of really important information here)

so i’ve decided that every winter and summer, i’ll be hosting a transgender resource giveaway! this is the giveaway that i host where money is donated to a winner to go towards helping a transgender-identifying person with resources they might need to help them live the life they want to. money can go towards hormones, surgery, name change, clothing, anything essential to that person to help make their lives easier. and “transgender” is a loose term, it’s basically for anyone who does not identify as cisgender. if you don’t know what these things mean, look them up. you can identify as genderfluid, trans man, trans woman, genderqueer, transmasculine, transfeminine, bigender, agender, two-spirit, demi-girl, demi-boy, genderfuck, anything and everything that is not cisgender! (i do realize that there are some people who identify outside of cisgender/outside the binary who also do not identify as transgender. i am trying my best to include everyone so if you have questions, please direct them to me before doing anything else!)

the last two giveaways have had enormous success and support and i want to make this a bi-annual thing! BUT, for those of you who participated in the past (or those who are just joining), i’m changing this one up a bit. please read carefully.

in the past, i have had numerous people contact me about donating extra money to the amount i normally giveaway (100$) to the winner of the giveaway. i loved this idea so much that i decided to incorporate it into my giveaway! so this year and from here on out, i’ll be taking donations to create more chances to win during the giveaway! so here’s how this works. the winnings start out at 100$, given by me, to one winner. for every 100$ donated, i’ll add an extra winner to the giveaway! so let’s say that 500$ total was donated. that means there will be 5 total winners each receiving 100$. the more people donate, the more winners there will be! and you do NOT have to donate, there is nothing mandatory about donating, it is all on your own free will. but it gives everyone who has the means to help a chance to give to others!

~*~*~ THIS GIVEAWAY WILL END JULY 31st, 2014 at 9:00pm EST~*~*~

with all that said, here are the rules of the giveaway!

  • TO DONATE, ***GO TO THE GOFUNDME PAGE LINKED HERE*** (again it is not mandatory to donate)
  • one like + one reblog = 2 entries! if you follow me, you get +1 extra entry but it is not mandatory (it’s mostly so you can keep updated on the giveaway)
  • you have to identify as transgender/non-cisgender to be included in this giveaway. if you are cisgender, you can signal boost the post! just reblog it and add “signal boost” to the comments or tags so that way i know not to include you when choosing the winner.
  • please have an active account and ask box. i will give the winner(s) 3 days/72 hrs to respond. also, if you are under the age of 18 but are living in a situation where you cannot ask for your parent or guardian’s permission for me to send you mail, we will work something out. i know there’s plenty of transgender youth out there in abusive households and i do NOT want to exclude you.
  • if you do not want to reblog to your main account because you are not completely out/are afraid of people finding your blog, message me the URL of a different safer blog for you and reblog it on THAT account. not your main one. just let me know ahead of time. otherwise no sideblogs or giveaway blogs please
  • if you want to reblog it for a significant other/friend/someone else that does not have a tumblr, contact me first.
  • the currency will be in the US Dollar. it is up to you to do currency exchange if you live outside the country

if you have any other questions, please direct them to my ask box! don’t ask on anon unless you absolutely have to. i’d like to answer most questions privately.

happy reblogging!!

I AM UPDATING THE DATE THE GIVEAWAY IS GOING TO END. i have come to the realization that i am going to probably be broke by the end of july because of a possible convention and my tattoo that i’ve been saving up for. so!!! i’m going to have the giveaway end August 31st, 2014 to give myself a bit more time to earn some money to donate. that way we have the whole summer to raise more money and have more winners! please think about donating if you couldn’t before! thanks!

blows my mind that women are considered shrill and whiny when all i have to do is insinuate that male feelings are not my #1 priority at all times and every indignant male in a 500 mile radius comes out of the woodwork to let me know how they feel

in honor of the revival of early-2000s internet culture, i’d like to suggest

  • introducing “pwn” back into our collective vocabularies
  • posting old limewired songs that have inserts of bill clinton saying “i did not have sexual relations with that woman”
  • MIDI files for autoplay, featuring hit songs like Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life” and Linkin Park’s “In The End”
  • neopets forum wars
  • those e-cards with weird 3D gifs like this
  • image

posts like that moon goddess virgin bullshit make me so fucking annoyed but also so sad at the same time, bc they’re so clearly people searching desperately for some group, any group,no matter how blatantly unlikely it is, that wasn’t totally shit to women. so you end up with people being like ‘but in GREEK civilisation’ or ‘but in PERSIA’ or ‘but in the CELTIC TRIBES’ and its like no. none of these groups respected women. none of these groups treated women, as a group, well.  the number of civilisations that respected women - and i do mean ‘respected ALL women’, not ‘respected mothers’ or ‘respected virgins’ or ‘were afraid of their fathers’ or ‘respected able-bodied women who could fight like men’ or ‘respected these three mythological female figures and didn’t give a shit about real people’ or whatever - is vanishingly small, and you can’t explain that away by pointing to some magical noble savage moon goddess bullshit that some hippy made up in 1973 and act like that makes it all okay

The whole triple-moon-goddess nonsense was made up by Robert Graves, who wrote a stunningly badly researched book of Greek myths (and then poetry) which was lapped up by people. There have been societies with Great Goddesses, who were seen as mother figures, but they were an abstraction of the fertility of the entire world. Matrilineal succession may have existed because it was a more logical way of tracking descent of a family — a woman giving birth knows that a child came out of them — but the instances of polyandry were for the purpose of having stronger children to carry on the line if a man was unable to. The ruling female of a demesne may have been considered the high priestess of their religion but that did not mean they were in charge of anything. They would have been a figurehead, existing for special occasions and in particular confines, rather than being a supreme ruler, and in societies where there was constant warfare, they would have had even less. Girls were still married off at a young age (~12 - 14 in Ancient Rome).

As for the notion of ‘virgin’ as contained in that post, SOMEONE HAS NOTE DONE THEIR LATIN PROPERLY. Vir is a noun meaning male; virilis is an adjective meaning manly; virgin comes from virga, which itself has a general meaning of ‘young branch’. Just because the words look alike does not mean they have the same etymological descent.

The idea of prehistoric matriarchal societies has been around for a long time (and there’s a biiiig difference between matriarchal, matrilineal, and matrifocal); it exists primarily as a way for men to go ‘hurr hurr glad we got out of that isn’t our patriarchy so great and balanced and organised?’ and be glad that we’ve moved on from a past, primitive state. Prehistorical matriarchal societies were conceived to be insulting, that they were something that we had moved past, and such societies (hey look at Ancient Greek attitudes to the myth of Amazonian women) were seen as barbaric and something to be glad about being history rather than the present.

You can’t reclaim something if there is nothing there in the first place.
