Of course there are people in a gray area or borderline area between cis and trans. That’s true of social categories in general, particularly the dualist western way of social categories. There’s no fine line between cis and trans, queer and hetero, abled and disabled, POC and white, poor and rich, etc. and there never has been. It doesn’t mean that oppression isn’t real or that more clearly delineated identities and people aren’t real, it’s an inadequacy of categories not of people.
I would be more surprised if there weren’t hard to call cases or cases that could go either way.

I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been emotionally brittle lately or not but it seems to me like there’s been an increase in hate, misgendering, etc. in the nonbinary and genderqueer tags lately. The “fake trans” bullshit has been going around left and right and it’s emotionally exhausting. Bashing nonbinary people doesn’t make us into cis people or into any of the two dimensional stereotypes so few people bother to question. We’re still nonbinary, we’re still not cis, this rhetoric is only effective at making people feel like shit and feel unwanted. And I bet anything if nonbinary people or any subgroup of nonbinary people actually stopped claiming trans identity but didn’t pretend to be cis that we’d still be accused of shit like wanting attention and all of the other bullshit. I honestly don’t even fucking know what these people want from us other than us to stop existing and stop pointing out our genders are real and stop being a fucking complication for their neat little theories about how gender is supposed to look.
After much thought i have decided to replace both of my parents with wolves, wish me luck learning to kill deer with my teeth

This shouldn’t even be a discussion. Don’t reclaim the term feminazi. Why the fuck would you want it? Spend 5 seconds thinking about it and then give me a reason why you aren’t actual, living garbage.
At least three dead in two shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas. 15-year-old boy reported to be critically wounded; police report one person was in custody; man reportedly yelled ‘Heil Hitler’ when police arrested him.
Reblogging again to add:
Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug.
A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)
I’m very sorry to those of you who don’t come to my blog expecting to see news or other horrible real world stuff. I thought it was worth putting out there.
I know it’s sort of a stereotype joke that leftists call everything fascist, but I’d rather look silly than not be allowed to call fascist shit fascist shit.
Destroy fascism in all its forms.
And that includes the vast majority of school administrations in the US.
