Just received my size 50 knitting needles in the mail, and I’m pretty sure these are weapons, not craft making tools

Ravelry contributor Anke Klempner used her creative knitting skills to realize something that we’ve long suspected: teapots look a lot like snails.

Anke designed an adorable teapot cozy that accentuates the teapot’s resemblance to a snail’s shell and adds a pair of eye stalks to complete the transformation. They really do look like cute snails, but with the added bonus that these charming mollusks won’t eat your garden plants.

I am having a terrible night because of my transitional dysphoria so naturally the only thing I can do to cheer myself up is laugh about the situation.

Smile through the struggle.

Cis people this is a post for trans people, notice the trans flag in the kid’s wings. Please please please keep this in mind when reblogging.


Edit: please note that since writing this post, which is by far my most popular, I have come out as a transgender woman. That doesn’t, however, change any of the points I make.

I’m a guy, and I need feminism. Not “men’s rights.” Feminism. Here is why.

Everything that MRAs talk about that men can’t do or are socially punished for arise directly and immediately from misogyny and transmisogyny. Not “misandry.” Misogyny.

Whether a man is expressing his emotions, playing with children, baking, having sex wherein he is penetrated in any way, wearing the wrong color, talking the wrong way, moving the wrong way, being sexually harassed/assaulted, or paying too little attention to looking like he’s not paying attention to how he looks, when society punishes him or derides him or marginalizes him for these things, it is happening because they are things associated with women, and our society at large fucking hates women.

Has that sunk in yet?

Men, can you even think of a single goddamn way you have ever been mocked that wasn’t somehow related to something that a misogynist society sees as feminizing? Even when large men are mocked for their bodies, they are referred to as having “man-boobs,” for fucks sake.

How do you expect to improve those things with “men’s rights?” What right are you fighting for? I can tell you what I think you’re fighting for. I think you’re fighting for the right to contain and control misogyny, and direct it back at women, where you think it belongs. You want to maintain your privilege but erase its consequences, and that’s why your movement is farcical; it’s a big fucking feedback loop. How do you expect men to be free from the peripheral effects of misogyny and transmisogyny when you refuse to even fucking believe it’s real?

queer as in...: misandry isn't real, dudez

Regarding the linked article:

"It had long been tradition that operating calculating machines was “women’s work”; it was thought to be just keypunching, like typing."

This is probably the best description of why programming is regarded with disgust by any higher hierarchy person in the working hierarchy.

So originally that well treated disgust came from
disrespecting women's work. And now the most
people who cry the loudest about that are normally male, oh the irony...

As our culture progressed and became more and more willing to study racism and misogyny, and how they both operate systemically within our culture, ... the definition of “good guy” changed.

It was no longer just a public declaration that you weren’t bigoted and a lack of active oppression of women and people of color. Being a “good guy” now meant engaging in a difficult and complex process of understanding privilege, including your own privilege, acknowledging that, and understanding how racism and misogyny are created and disseminated, how much of that we’ve internalized, and how we work to end that.... Most of us are still struggling with these issues and our place within them every day.

But some people are LIVID... [They] cannot comprehend ... the idea that someone else’s narrative could be just as important, or, possibly, for even just a moment, more urgent and important, as anything but a MASSIVE injustice against them. They’ve been first in line for so long THEY NEVER EVEN KNEW THE LINE EXISTED, and they believe that being asked to wait in line like everyone else is bigotry against them. ...

They BELIEVE they’re the victims of a culture that changed behind their backs and deprived them of being the well-liked “good guy” without meeting new qualifications; ... the victims of a culture that suddenly “doesn’t care” about their issues because the issues of other groups are starting to be seen as equally important; the victims of a culture that no longer posits “white guy” as the one human in constant possession of the benefit of the doubt.

I confront [white guilt] every year, about a month into my course on racism, among [white] students who come to me in tears because they cannot deal with the racism that goes on in their families or their home towns or their student residences. Their tears are the result of genuine anguish, care, and a desire to learn and to change. I confront similar attitudes among my colleagues, and I am similarly gratified by their concern. But those who experience white guilt need to learn three things:

1) People of colour are generally not moved by their tears, and may even see those tears as a self-indulgent expression of white privilege. It is after all a great privilege to be able to express one’s emotion openly and to be confident that one is in a cultural context where one’s feelings will be understood.

2) Guilt is paralysing. It serves no purposes; it does no good. It is not a substitute for activism.

3) White guilt is often patronizing if it leads to pity for those of colour. Pity gets in the way of sincere and meaningful human relationships, and it forestalls the frankness that meaningful relationships demand. White guilt will not change the racialized environment; it will only make the guilty feel better.
