I never tell people off the bat that I’m gay. I wait. I wait until they say some homophobic shit and then I laugh and am like “you know I’m gay right?” And watch the look of terror on their face.
i like you
"stop making your sexuality/gender/etc the defining part of your personality" - someone who has never felt the intense relief and joy that comes with discovering that there’s a word for these feelings you have had all these years. someone who has never had to learn how to embrace something that society has told them was unnatural or sinful.
She looks like Cleopatra or something brought into the future. Powerful stare like, “All the Ceasar’s be fallin’ for me.”
look at her face. look how confident she is. fierce af. this btch already knows shes about to tear shit up with her new album and she’s fucking ready to prove everyone that doubted her wrong. this aint Harajuku barbie Nicki, this is Southside Jamaica Queens Nicki and she about to slay the music industry. watch.
this is Hourou Musuko, an anime/manga about a young trans girl and her friends, all figuring out their gender identity and sexual orientations
yo yo i just double-checked and it is a real thing and also available on crunchyroll for free!
It’s also on KissAnime for free which is a website I recommend 1000 times more since they provide HQ anime without having to pay anything, and they have a wider selection than Crunchyroll
I watched the first episode. I can’t vouch for the rest of it but the first episode made my heart swell a bit. A lot of it is about finding those people that you can make your guides and role models, and that’s not something I feel like we get to see a lot, we see the kids just left to forge through on their own in the big and scary.
Wavedash why did you do this to me.
The anime seems to grab just a slice of the full manga’s story (obviously) but despite Horou Musuko being one of my favorite manga of all time, I never did finish the anime. I didn’t think it was all that interesting an adaptation, and it’s so good as a comic.
The Horou Musuko manga is not only good, it’s really important. It follow a transgendered girl and a transgendered boy and it follows them encountering and stuggling with:
- trans* objectification
- the intersection of gender identity and sexuality
- what adult life will be like as a trans* person
- experimenting with (“trying on”) gender signifiers
- evolving identities
- binary questioning
- being a partner to a tans* person
All while mired in Japanese society and expectations.
Luckily for EVERYONE, Fantagraphics press is translating and publishing the comic is BEAUTIFUL hardbound volumes.
But if you don’t have the money, I know you can easily find scanlations online, which are translated all the way to the end (Fantagraphics is about half way.)
That comic about trans* youth you were always looking for?
Here it is.
"If they raise the subway fare one more time, I’m going to explode. I’m making nine dollars an hour. I walk home three hours from work every day to save that $2.50, because that’s a half gallon of milk for me and my daughter. And every time they raise the fare, they have a ‘hearing.’ But they aren’t hearing anything. It’s a fucking joke. If you go to one of those ‘hearings,’ every single person stands up and says: ‘Don’t raise the fare.’ Then they raise it anyway. Oh man, it burns me up. ‘We need the money,’ they say, ‘America is hurting.’ That’s bullshit! If I see one more TV program bragging about multimillion dollar homes I’m gonna scream. How about a fucking TV program that shows me if there is anywhere in this city that I can fucking afford to live anymore. I’m sorry, but it’s burning me up."

South park is making fun of trans minors, meanwhile around 60% of trans kids are homless, over 70% of trans kids experience harrasment in school, trans kids make up 10% of the homeless population (despite only making up an estimated 1-3% of youth in general), and 41% of all trans people attempt #suicide . It’s interesting how they focus on how we act online, instead of what’s actually happening to us
And by interesting, i mean totally fucking disgusting and transparent
