Sneaker Romance: A Fetish Love Story – Otter Lieffe

The whole world seems to have come together without my consent and arrived at the grand decision that in this life I will be a gay guy. Again and again people who don’t know me assume that I’m both male and gay. Être intersexué, qu’est-ce que ça veut dire ? L’intersexuation, on en parle bien peu, et pourtant elle concerne de nombreux individus dans le monde.

Être intersexué, qu’est-ce que ça veut dire ?

BuzzFeed a invité quatre personnes intersexuées à témoigner en vidéo. C’est triste à dire, mais l’intersexuation est encore moins connue du « grand public » que la transidentité. Et encore : dans le meilleur des cas, quand on connaît la différence entre les deux ! Mais pourquoi cette ignorance générale, en réalité, lorsque plus d’une personne sur 2000 naît intersexuée (ou intersexe : les terminologies varient) ?

"Do You Think You're Beautiful?": Navigating A Bearded, Black, Disable – Philadelphia Printworks

Lopez ***It is important and necessary for me to point out several things before you read this essay. The first thing is my privilege: I can sometimes physically pass as a cisgender woman or a cisgender man, I am relatively lighter skinned than other Black people, and I am on the smaller side of plus-sized. The second thing is that even though the actions of those who seek to harm me are transmisogynist, I, as a person who was assigned female, cannot experience transmisogyny as trans women and trans femmes who were assigned male. It is absolutely necessary that my experiences and the experiences of other hairy nonbinary people who were assigned female not be used to promote transmisogyny and the invalidation of the lived experiences of trans women and trans femmes who were assigned male at birth As though it were an inside joke between myself and the universe, people send me photos and interviews of Harnaam Kaur all the time.

Black, queer, feminist, erased from history: Meet the most important legal scholar you’ve likely never heard of. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has emerged as the liberal hero of a hopelessly right-wing Supreme Court, a ram in the bush for those of us who look on in horror as the court presides over the dismantling of key pieces of legislation like the Voting Rights Act, anti-discrimination law and affirmative action policy, which have been so critical to African-American advancement since the 1960s.

Black, queer, feminist, erased from history: Meet the most important legal scholar you’ve likely never heard of

In a recent interview at Georgetown University, Ginsburg reflected on the history behind one of her key legal accomplishments, the 1971 case of Reed v. Reed. After an estranged couple lost their son, his mother, Sally Reed, petitioned to administer his estate. But Idaho law maintained that “males must be preferred to females,” in such matters. Ginsburg authored the plaintiff’s brief for the case when it reached the Supreme Court, arguing that the 14th amendment protected against discrimination based upon sex. But much of the legal groundwork for that argument can be attributed to Dr.

Gold save the Gouine. “It’s better to be a cute boy than an ugly butch... The Myth of the Queer Arab Life. For most people in the West life in the Arab world for gay people is hard to fathom.

The Myth of the Queer Arab Life

It is, like many other parts of life in this region, complicated. One of my favorite television shows growing up was a Ramadan special featuring an Egyptian performer called Sherihan. One year she had a Ramadan special called ‘Sherihan Around the World’, a twenty-minute singing and dancing extravaganza, which had her dressing in exquisite costumes from around the world and performing elaborate song and dance routines. Agender, une série photo de personnes ni homme ni femme. Avec sa série Agender, la photographe américaine Chloe Aftel a voulu mettre en lumière les personnes qui se considèrent ni homme ni femme, afin de les soutenir. Sasha (Crédit Image : Chloe Aftel) Pour Chloe Aftel, tout commence en novembre 2013 lorsque Sasha Fleischman, 18 ans, endormi(e) dans le bus pour rentrer chez il/elle, se réveille en sursaut à cause des flammes qui commencent à lui brûler les jambes.

Non pas un accident, mais une “blague” d’un camarade de classe qui n’appréciait visiblement pas que Sasha se considère d’un genre neutre. Avec des brûlures au deuxième et troisième degré, il/elle est hospitalisé(e) pendant plusieurs semaines et dévient un symbole de lutte pour le genre neutre. A l’époque, Sasha avait déclaré : Je pense que vous devriez être en mesure de réaliser que ce n’est pas juste une farce… Je ne veux pas être trop sévère parce que les gens font des choses stupides. 19 Photographs Of Hipsters Taking It Way Too Far. Our friends at Urban Dictionary define hipsters as: A subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.

19 Photographs Of Hipsters Taking It Way Too Far

Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. The "effortless cool" urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic. A pretty fair and balanced (if slightly tongue in cheek) description don't you think? ⚢ (@h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y)

L’art et la plasticité des genres. 1Au début du 19e siècle Hegel soutient que l’art est mort comme activité absolue et qu’il n’est par conséquent qu’une représentation déceptive de l’esprit.

Á la fin du siècle Nietzsche affirme que l’art crée des possibilités de vie et est la présence d’une surhumanité en devenir. Je ne suis pas un Efferalgan. Gender & feminism. Singing the Lesbian Blues in 1920s Harlem. When Gertrude “Ma” Rainey—known as “The Mother of Blues”—sang, “It’s true I wear a collar and a tie, … Talk to the gals just like any old man,” in 1928’s “Prove It on Me,” she was flirting with scandal, challenging the listener to catch her in a lesbian affair.

It might not seem like a big deal to us now, but back then, pursuing same-sex relations could get you thrown in jail. “It was under the cover of night, because they could be prosecuted for same-sex activity.” The good news for women-loving chanteuses like Rainey, Bessie Smith, and Gladys Bentley is that blues music in the 1920s was so far under the radar of mainstream America, female blues singers could get away with occasionally expressing their unconventional desires. That said, they all felt obligated to produce song after song about loving and losing men.
