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:
dysphoria
trans* objectification
the intersection of gender identity and sexuality
passing
puberty
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.

When it comes to objectification, this is a great example of why comparing male strip clubs to Hooters is a “false equivalent.”

i’m creating a kickstarter for cojones right now

Pardon the crummy mobile photography, but just to follow up on my earlier post, I’m selling a brand new Nikon D610 (top photo). It just came in from their facility in Melville, NY after turning in my D600, and I have decided to sell it to fund the purchase of the D750 (bottom photo). 

The 610 is the improved version of the original D600 and takes a pretty good picture, if you know what you’re doing. If you need examples, then you could pretty much look at my entire tumblr since May of last year, and just about all of my concert portfolio.

$1800 and it’s yours.

So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

A nondescript board meeting at Lionsgate
Exec 1: So Francis has made a fantastic blockbuster with a fantastic score from James Newton Howard which will be a hit across all the demos including these Nolan fans.
Fangirl advertising exec: But what about the sooounnddtrrracckk
Exec 1: Um...that's James Newton Howard's work. Besides none of these "soundtrack songs" would be in the film anyway.
Exec 3: I think she means something that will piss off all the more "serious" moviegoers. Something to tie back to the fact that HG is a YA franchise and we are first and foremost a YA and Horror studio
Exec 1: But that means we'll lose a lot of our non-fan audience - people like you aren't enough for us to do well!
Fangirl exec: But you'll gain more of us and we will be enough? *cheeky smile*
Exec 2: Oh and we can't get Coldplay because they're signed on to do that trailer for Ridley Scott
Exec 1: ahh screw it it's Part 1 anyway - get me Lorde on the phone

this is the start of how it all ends

In a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice.

not white people tho.. we believe it harder.. haha awkward..

In order to justify the horrors of this white supremacist society, we white folks will use the ideology of “colorblind” racism in order to justify our actions against anyone that threatens Whiteness. In the face of fascist terror, us white folks will only only hold onto this toxic ideology even harder. This is really fucked up and we need to call out and erase this bullshit narrative of “colorblind justice” whenever we see it from people we know.
