This was inspired by a real-life experience I had last week at the drugstore, where some guy called me a cunt. My comeback was just what you see here.
I personally hate slurs it epithets involving genitalia. I can’t stand that at all, and was only too happy to reclaim that word from the pejorative. He was left speechless.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
No fucking kidding! It’s one of the most embarrassing and dysphoria-inducing experiences for me. I’d love to be able to cuddle with someone I love without experiencing this. Hell, just bring able to hug someone without this happening would be splendid. It’s a selfish biological/physiological response that I could spend the rest of my life never having to experience again.
Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.
Halle Berry won and then played a bunch of bit parts or had to produce her own movies to get meaty roles…eventually turning to tv on a show she’s producing.
Denzel won and then was either typecast, teamed up with mediocre action stars, or produced his own movies to get meaty roles.
Jennifer Hudson won and her reward was playing Sarah Jessica Parker’s assistant in Sex And The City.
Monique won and disappeared because she angered people by speaking up about the bs.
Viola Davis keeps getting the broken, disheveled mom or wise friend roles… and eventually had to turn to a Black female producer on tv.
like… you can’t tell me this is typical for white actors. we talk about how shameful it is that Leo hasn’t won, but Leo has no trouble getting good, challenging, interesting starring roles. Neither do Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr…. like… come on! and yeah, white women have it harder than white men, but let’s talk about how much harder it is for Viola Davis to get a decent role than Sandra Bullock.
My BS Hollywood Blockbuster Cliche Film About Nothing of Interest, but that is Self-Important, Filled with Stupid Filters Because I Believe the Audience is Color Blind, and that Has Uninspired Fade-To-Black and Seizure-Inducing Editing as well as Sped-Up and Slowed-Down Footage in a Desperate Vie for Your Attention: The Movie.
Yeah. Most of what I hate about the way most Hollywood Blockbusters are filmed and edited can be seen in this brief video.
Just some comics I’ve made to help stave off my growing depression.
Body Positivity #flipagram made with @flipagram ♫ Music: Life in Mono (Mono)
I’ve been feeling particularly disgusting, ugly and singularly undesirable for the past few months, especially after having been forced to de-transition. As I was cleaning out the photos on my phone, I ran across these 2-year old photos I’d taken as a body positivity exercise. Maybe someday, I’ll feel strong enough to try again. #trans #transgender #transwoman #mtf #m2f #bodypositivity
