first review I’ve seen of the 4.5 Prosthetic.
if I had the money, I would SOOOOO impulse buy :)
Good god, someone buy me this.
shit just got real…
On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.
Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.
People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.
Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.
she deserves to be re-blogged.
Has anyone already had a gender neutral name and chosen NOT to change it. Thoughts? Curious.
I actually changed my name to a gender-neutral one. I think it fits me better anyways.
I was fine with my gender neutral birth name for nearly two years and it started to drive me crazy for some reason. I guess I just felt a short simple masculine name suited me better.
I’m in the same boat as trucum4lyfe. I know a girl with my name, and it’s no problem. I like the name I changed to. My birth name was female only though. I really like my birth name, it’s a lovely name, but it’s not mine, and it bothers me when it’s applied to me because it’s so obviously a female name. When I came out it would have been so much easier if my birth name was not female only. I cringe when I hear it applied to me because of that reason.
I do know a few people who have unisex birth names and they decided to keep it. I don’t have an issue with that at all and nor do they. If they are happy, so am I, which they appear to be.
Same feels as theotheropinion. If only it were a lot easier to change names in our country, things would go so well for us.
cause we got into a topic wherein an FTM transgender falls in love/is attracted to an MTF transgender and someone used the word "tranny chaser" to describe the situation.
i called them out for it saying it’s really offensive to some people. i told them to be more careful with the words/terms they want to use cause it’s not okay to use them without any caution. am i wrong for calling them out? i’m bothered.
from my relatives abroad.
it was a short one but it felt really good. know why? even if i didn’t actually come out to them officially, they used my preferred name which is awesome considering we’re a very conservative family. gives me hope, really. can’t wait to see them soon.
