Hi, my name is Tyler and I’m trying to raise money for a surgery that I’m going to be getting in the nearish future. I’m a transguy and I bind my chest every day,which takes a toll on my back, ribs, lungs, etc. I found a surgeon that’s close by, but I don’t have the funds to pay for it myself. An…
Guys, one of my close friends Tyler is raising money for top surgery. Unfortunately, insurance doesn’t cover any trans-related surgeries because they usually consider it “cosmetic” (which is complete bullshit and a whole other fight to fight). Anyways, the sooner he can get this money raised, the better. It’s both painful and unhealthy to bind your chest every day. I love this guy and he really deserves the healthcare that *should* be insured, but isn’t.
It would mean the world to me if you could contribute even a dollar or two to his fund. This is important to me and obviously incredibly important to him.▲14 | reblog
"White feminism" does not mean every white woman, everywhere, who happens to identify as feminist. It also doesn’t mean that every "white feminist" identifies as white. I see "white feminism" as a specific set of single-issue, non-intersectional, superficial feminist practices. It is the feminism we understand as mainstream; the feminism obsessed with body hair, and high heels and makeup, and changing your married name. It is the feminism you probably first learned. "White feminism" is the feminism that doesn’t understand western privilege, or cultural context. It is the feminism that doesn’t consider race as a factor in the struggle for equality.
White feminism is a set of beliefs that allows for the exclusion of issues that specifically affect women of colour. It is “one size-fits all” feminism, where middle class white women are the mould that others must fit. It is a method of practicing feminism, not an indictment of every individual white feminist, everywhere, always.
Please, everybody: read this article!
