you are NOT special because “you’re not shocked about how john mulaney turned out to be a horrible person” or “i already knew because of [insert prior joke or incident here]” or “he made that clear from [insert certain joke line here (moral backbone of chocolate eclair, etc)]
people, especially trans fans, are genuinely upset because they just had a piece of media/person that they gave them enjoyment and happiness in this reality that is a shithole taken away from them forcefully. not just by any other incident but transphobia.
what do you get out of making yourself look more morally and intellectually superior than people who are upset and angry and in distress and mocking them?
if you can understand that some people's gender changes from day to day, you should be able to understand that other people can go their life being one gender and then have that change - and thus not feel like they were "born this way." there's absolutely zero reason fluid gender experiences should be limited to people whose gender changes multiple times or more often.
and if you dont understand either, that's a you problem. not an us problem.
Happy pride to one and all! These lions are proud of who they are and the community they represent, and so you too should be proud of who you are and the journey you have taken to this point. That's me in the bottom right 😺

ForThem Binder Review
i just received my forthem binder. i haven't seen any reviews for the brand on here, and only about 3 total on the rest of the internet, so i thought i'd post my own. this shit isn't sponsored or anything.
if you didn't know, forthem is a new brand. their binders are meant to be a happy medium between traditional binders and sports bras. that's exactly what i've always wanted, so i bought one pretty much right away.
super soft and comfortable material. like i cannot overstate how comfortable it is. its some kind of nylon blend, so it stretches and isn't stiff, while still offering some compression. and it's recycled material
definitely binds better than my sports bras. in my particular case, it's more comfortable too. i barely notice it's on
no breathing issues, rib pain, or back pain to speak of
it's front-back reversible. one side is scoop neck and the other is v neck. the v neck side comes up a little higher, so i find it binds a little better
fun & unique colors
doesn't bind as well as a gc2b or underworks binder. those are the only two i've tried before, so i can't speak for other brands
i can see it not working out as well for larger chested people, due to the overall length being shorter than your average binder. however, some reviews on their actual website mention the binder working well for bigger chests, so do with that what you will
your color options are limited depending on what size you need, because they use recycled material. also only one skin color option is available (beige)
they say they'll text you at every update, but i only ever got one text that confirmed my order, and that was after i texted them first to check in a few days after placing it. no shipment tracking.
i love this thing. if you're disabled, have sensory issues, are just starting to bind, or have anything else going on that makes traditional binders a not great option, i definitely recommend trying forthem.

This survey's closing date is currently uknown
Tatiana Maslany wearing a shirt that says ‘SUPPORT TRANS FUTURES’ on it to promote She-Hulk for Marvel Studios and Disney, and therefore forcing them to have that on their social medias for the world to see, including who knows how many queer kids and their guardians, is fucking awesome and I thank her for that.
Yasmin Finney, a transgender playing the perfect role of a young trans woman in Heartstopper, is joining the Doctor Who crew.
The Guardian writes:
Finney’s character is called Rose, which was also the name of the companion famously played by Billie Piper in the mid-00s. The relevance of this is currently unknown. What we do know is that Finney was recently spotted filming scenes alongside David Tennant, AKA the Tenth Doctor, and Catherine Tate, AKA the Tenth Doctor’s companion, Donna Noble. In other words, there are more than enough cryptic developments to keep Whoniverse obsessives in a tizzy until the end product finally airs in 2023.
Ncuti Gatwa (left below) will play the Fourteenth Doctor. The Black gay actor stars in another queer-friendly TV series: Sex Education.
(And yes, you should take a look at both Heartstopper and Sex Education, if you have not already!)
