*makes heterophobic text post*
It’s a metaphor, see? You make a mean text post, but you don’t back it with thousands of years of violently-upheld institutional power, so it doesn’t have the power to actually hurt anyone.
best one yet
i unironically believe that the only thing you should need to do to access medical or legal transition is ask.
Yes. This. All of this!
(also probably show up to doctor’s appointments?)
everybody I know has used heterosexuality as a stepping stone to coming out of the closet as gay or bi, so I think we need to have a serious conversation about whether heterosexuality exists
So. The time has finally come to roll out the new feature at biyuti publishing!
What is this ‘subscription’ I speak of? Well, as an effort to make biyuti publishing a sustainable project (I want us to be around for a very long time), we’ve implemented a super cheap subscription. For $1/month, you get to read all of our catalogue online.
Yes. All of it.
- Trauma Queen by Lovemme Corazón
- The Womanist Musings Posts by b. binaohan
- what’s beyond logic by b. binaohan
- The forthcoming volume of poetry by Ryka Aoki, authoer of Seasonal Velocities
- Morgan Robyn Collado’s debut book of poetry.
- b. binaohan’s upcoming Decolonizing Trans/gender 101.
- And so many more (there are about three or four other works coming down the pipe).
Downloads for the ebooks (pdf, epub, kindle, nook, etc.) must be purchased separately, as well as any print copies.
Why? Well, because we have switched to a royalty model if 100%. 100% of all digital sales handled via biyuti publishing go directly to the writer. As do sales made by third parties like Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, etc.
The goal, here, is to try and get enough funding to keep biyuti publishing going via subscriptions while still putting as much money into the pockets of our writers.
So, please, if you can get a subscription to biyuti publishing help us provide a space for twoc and qtpoc to speak and share.
sidenote: we are also gearing up for another fundraiser to pay for the upgrades to our web services and publishing workflows. Keep an eye on May 1, 2014.
!!! Can I ask all you lovely ppl who follow me to please reblog this, a few months ago I promised biyuti I’d help out with funding in a major way and then whups I became homeless and so I had to bail on my promise so please please consider subscribing and spreading the word!! <3 <3 <3
i just want 2 let laverne cox know that she is important and she is loved. she probably already knows that. i just want 2 make sure. i luv her so much.
#and i never care abt celebs
Sammmme. I avoid celebrity culture at all costs usually.
But it’s about time trans women get a good visible role model. So naturally she’s much more important than those other celebrities. :P
Also a Tall trans woman who is living her life. We need those stories.
Please do not tell me that its really unfortunate that I am caught between lifesaving medical intervention and being able to pursue my career. i am acutely aware of how unfortunate it is much more so than you are.
