"Kinks Shirt" by Matt Nathanson
What I really appreciate about this video is that the song makes no mention of the woman’s trans* status; they could have easily done something different with this video, and had Matt’s love interest be cis.
But no, she’s trans*, and most importantly, Character!Matt doesn’t care. They meet, they flirt, they sleep together, they talk over breakfast and clearly have a connection. That’s what matters, not the fact that this woman wasn’t born with a vagina.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL YOU GUYS
God, I didn’t think I needed more reasons to love Matt Nathanson but apparently now I have some.
okay wow this is super cute
Feminine doesn’t equal female. Gender presentation is a completely separate identity from gender identity. I don’t identify as a woman or female or a girl, but I do identify as a grrl or a lady or a prince or a sir. I’m a strong person, not a strong woman. I’m feminine by choice, not by obligation. Whether I have my beard grown out and I’m wearing a dress or I’m wearing a pushup bra while packing, I’m still me. No less me whether I’m perceived as male, female, neither, or both. I’m not without gender but I’m not defined by gender either. I just am.
Fallon Fox is the world’s first trans MMA fighter. Deal with it.
SO MUCH AWESOME :D
yo, they uh, changed their mind
yeah sure they changed their mind about chelsea manning specifically but they still don’t have, as far as any of us can tell, any internal policies on how to respectfully treat trans people in the news and in discussion, so it’s not like the petition’s null and void now, you can still sign it

Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday for leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks.

friendly reminder that gender neutral folks can wear traditionally feminine clothes and still be gender neutral (◡‿◡✿)
