irb> "Here is your 1098 statement for the year, teeth frog."
This is also vanity.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS
"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"
that is amazing
Okay but other reports state that Alina identifies as androgyne but feels more comfortable as a woman, it definitely is trans excellence but the label she uses is not reported correctly here.
Thanks for the info! (This means it’s not only trans excellence but also NONBINARY EXCELLENCE YEAH!)
Very seldom do stairways in Cambridge lead to heaven, or even a reasonable facsimile thereof …

anything a non binary person does is not binary. showing of cleavage? non binary boobies. lots of make up? non binary beauty. dresses? non binary fancy. stop implying that people aren’t non binary because they won’t buy into the “androgynous masculine” bullshit. a non binary person who doesn’t hide their boobs isn’t mocking you. get over yourself.
Same goes for other body types and ASABs too. Beard and/or mustache? Nonbinary facial hair. Tons of body hair showing? Nonbinary fuzz. Showing off a very flat or concave chest? Nonbinary chest. Rockin’ a baggy t-shirt and cargo shorts? Nonbinary casual.
Nonbinary people don’t need either femmephobia or transmisogyny. Some nonbinary people get policed/erased in the ways detailed by the OP, and others (often AMAB) get their genders policed/erased because they “don’t look femme enough” to be “really nonbinary”.
Re-reblogging this because when I did it before, the mobile app posted it as a link, thereby cutting off the very important second part.
Let’s Ruin Video Games
My name is Arden, and after a few days of thinking I’ve decided that I’m going to ruin video games.
I’m going to be doing everything in my power to destroy them completely. Walking simulators about feelings and emotions as far as the eye can see! Guns that shoot kisses! Lady characters that aren’t designed to cater to the whims of straight men! I’m hiding loving queer couples in every treasure chest instead of new armor. Every game will now be required to have at least one section that can be described as “too” personal. Fuck, if I’m feeling really bold, I might even throw some non-white characters into a game or two! I’ll magically replace every copy of every big-budget first person shooter with either Gone Home or Dear Esther and listen to the agitated shrieks of gamers.
Non-men have been “ruining” games for a long time, of course, by virtue of existing and trying to make the medium and the spaces around it more inclusive and less festering garbage. I’m just owning up to it now, so there can be no doubt: I’m here to ruin games. The space gamers have carved out is broken and vile, and I’m done with it. This is not their hobby anymore, it is our art.
I’m ruining video games! Join me! Make a personal story in Twine, nothing pisses gamers off more than interactive fiction sharing experiences that don’t cater to them! Make something in RPG Maker! You don’t even need to put combat in it! Make a dating sim or a visual novel in Ren’Py! Ruining games is easy, I know you can do it too!
Anonymous said: As a nurse, what do you think of the Fat Acceptance movement? It sounds good to me as a fat girl but I admit I'm no health expert. Some medical people are for it, some against, you're a cool dude who knows medicine so I wondered what you thought.
It sounds good to me too. (Although I am biased, as I am a cool fat dude who knows medicine.)
Honestly, I don’t even want to bring medical science into it, because I feel like when you do that, you open yourself up to the belief that if anyone can prove that being fat has any negative health effects, then it’s okay to go “MOOOO” at fat people in the street.
When… no. The health effects of being fat are actually pretty mixed, but I don’t even care. Fat people’s right to peaceful existence should not depend on the data being in their favor. The whole thing is just a cover for enforcing standards of social status, beauty, and Correct Female Behavior that have nothing to do with health anyway.
Is being fat healthy? In some ways, but not in others, and anyway measuring people’s lives on a scale of “healthy” to “unhealthy” is terribly imprecise and unhelpful. Is being fat okay? Yes.
anything a non binary person does is not binary. showing of cleavage? non binary boobies. lots of make up? non binary beauty. dresses? non binary fancy. stop implying that people aren’t non binary because they won’t buy into the “androgynous masculine”…

Luisa Casati with a greyhound by Giovanni Boldini, 1908.
A classmate of mine based her final collection on the life of this lady. It turned out wonderful.
Wow, what a fascinating life she had — I’ve only skimmed her wiki page, but it looks like there is much more out there to read about her. This looks like a good biography.
From the link above, here are some photos of Valeria Marquisa’s millinery collection, The 5 Ages of La Marchesa Casati: Das Fest, Séance, all five hats together. They’re marvellous.
