I see so many posts asking for money because people are kicked out, made homeless, etc, and it’s great that people are helping out, but I can’t help but think we’re like… barely scraping by financially while failing communally. How can we socially build on these thin strands of support via donation? Can we build support networks that stretch beyond PayPal? Shelters and other official orgs seem to be failing or not doing enough… I just worry we’ll have nothing left when the little bit of money going in this impoverished community dries up

What we need as a community is a way to generate our own resources and ways to keep the resources we already have *in* our community.

We work *for* cis people and most of our money goes *to* cis people. We have to find a way to break this cycle. 

That is VERY TRUE. And the trans community—or rather communities, because let’s face it, we do have plenty of divisions and are not one cohesive group—are not the first to encounter this very problem. Historically this is not a new thing. The question is… how do we make it work for us? Each community has its own quirks and dynamics. Look to the past, think of the future

Well lets start with basics.

We need one of two things.

Money, or the things money can buy.

In this we need food, clothing, shelter, water ect.

Other oppressed groups in the past used tactics where they only spent their money at places owned by the same oppressed group so the money stayed *in the community*. We might look into making organized lists of services and goods providers owned by trans women and encouraging our sisters to provide services to other trans women at a discount and to encourage other trans women to open new services.

One of my projects right now is an indoor growing project and eventually a seed bank for various food plants and fungi, though im starting with hot peppers because we all like spicy food :p

I know a lot of transwomen know how to knit and sew as well, we should be making clothing *within our own community*. It wont be name brand fashions but it will save money and help develop a sense of culture within our communities.

Housing is another big issue, if anyone had any ideas on this please chime in. 

In my sphere, games dev, there is some money flowing, but I have to fight this feeling that it’s frivolous. Even as I try to make games that have real meaning and social impact. But entertainment is good too. It seems like people are more willing to spend “in community” for entertainment than other things, which I find strange. I feel it sometimes myself, but it’s very strange.

How can we not just save, but create stability? I know some orgs exist that are helping, but I’m worried

"Bound and Gagged" is now for sale at  ELM and CV  

My boyfriend and I wanted to make a blowjob video, and we decided that I should be handcuffed and blindfolded for it. I have a horrible gag reflex and couldn’t stop choking and gagging on his cock! I suck and slurp as he grabs me by the back of the head and pushes me down until I finally convince him to take off my handcuffs so I can use my hands and mouth at the same time. Finally he cums all over my face and hair, and by the end I’m such a mess ;) 

HHHNNNNGGGG THE CONSENT IN THIS GIF SET ALMOST HAS ME IN TEARS SO PERFECT

Seriously, this gifset is full of hot and awesome.

It demonstrates how negotiation can be foreplay, and how porn can be educational in GOOD ways!! Yay!

Hot, respectful, consensual.

OMG NASA! YOU WIN! YOU WIN EDUCATION! FUCKING GLaDOS AT NASA

I once told a joke about a straight person.

They came after me in droves.

Each one singing the same:

Don’t fight fire with fire.

*

What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.

Do not fight fire with water.

Do not fight fire with foam.

Do not evacuate the people.

Do not sound the alarms.

Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.

Do not barricade the door with damp towels.

Do not wave a white flag out of the window.

Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.

Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.

Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.

Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.

*

When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.

What they mean is: Stand and burn.

#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

ILU JOHN BARROWMAN

yesssss

Good bros shut down other bros trying to be douchebros
