People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
I have a panic disorder. While having an attack one day, I called my boyfirend because I was scared. He hung up the phone as soon as I said that and was over in no time to comfort me.
He doesn’t have a car.
He lives 10 miles away.
DING DONG THOSE ARE FUCKING WEDDING BELLS IN THE DISTANCE

men at large think they are being robbed of something when an attractive woman with a 90% chance of developing breast cancer gets a double mastectomy
what better illustration of the male sense of sexual entitlement do you need
yet another unrealistic expectation for women
ive literally been playing this game for like 10 minutes and theres already a dog with its eyes not inside its head
what an eye popping experience
Though its visuals appear a bit dated.
clearly you have an eye for detail
I have had the benefit of seeing game design from the inside out. The experience garnered for this industry not only allows me to view things straight forward but also sideways at the competition.
spoken like a true PUPIL of game industry

AIDS. It’s a waking nightmare for thousands of intravenous drug users.
Because the fact is that one of the fastest ways to transmit AIDS is by sharing a needle or works with an infected person. And here’s the scary part: There’s no easy way of telling if the person you’re sharing with is infected.
So do yourself a favor. Don’t shoot drugs. Or, at least, don’t share needles or other shooting equipment.
Because, today, a dirty needle, works, or spoon can be a straight shot to AIDS.
And AIDS is a nightmare no one needs.
you know its possible to use iv w/o getting it if you can access a needle exchange n clean works. i can and do. i have been shooting for a decade, never caught a thing n get tested quarterly. this issue is utterly utterly political. the reason ppl are so at risk places like the us is the complete refusal to protect ppl by engaging in harm minimisation.
oh i forgot. junkies arent ppl. excuse me for assuming for a second that just maybe we were.
obvious tw is obvious.
My city is AWESOME irt this, we’ve got an exchange in the city and a couple of mobile ones. The exchange is great, Hirudoid is half the price and condoms are 20c unless they’re giving them away. The staff are so nice as well, except for one particularly grumpy woman.
Also I this whole “straight shot to AIDS” thing has to go.
For one thing, get your goddamn medical facts straight. YOU DO NOT “TRANSMIT AIDS”. AIDS is Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. you cannot CATCH, CONTRACT, BE INFECTED BY OR TRANSMIT A SYNDROME.
HIV is Human Immunodeficiency Virus. HIV is the virus that is transmitted from person to person. AIDS is a condition that comes about after a long period of HIV infection - these days, in the west, generally around ten years. It’s not until your T cell count reaches below 200 that’s you’re clinically classified as having AIDS, and with treatment many people don’t reach that stage.
This does not just annoy me because it’s a medical inaccuracy; it annoys me because it’s 2013 not and there is no excuse for a group trying to provide HIV/AIDS education to not understand that contracting HIV does not mean you will develop AIDS. We’ve seen incredible medical advances since the ’80s, but HIV/AIDS scare campaigning hasn’t progressed nearly as far.
I don’t deny that people should be warned of the dangers of HIV/AIDS, but telling people that HIV is a death sentence is just not true anymore. Not only is it false information that’s being provided, but it pushes the commonly held mentality that once you’re HIV+ your life is over. Telling someone that they have no chance of survival means they’re more likely to engage in risk taking behaviour, anything from unhealthy eating to failing to continue medical appointments to more drug use and, more importantly, unsafe sex or using practices - because “I’m positive anyway, why bother being safe”. Unsafe practices put people at a higher risk of STIs and other BBVs like hepatitis, and the stress from treating your body badly and not seeking treatment after finding out you’re HIV+ is what’s most likely to further the disease.
Obviously we shouldn’t talk about HIV/AIDS like it’s a walk in the park, because it isn’t. It’s still a serious condition and the medical advances we’ve made are treatment; they’re not a cure. But this constant misrepresentation of “AIDS” as a disease that you catch and then die from seriously has to stop. It stigmatises HIV+ people, it stigmatises IV drug users, and it stigmatises all other high risk groups (from body modification fans to sex workers to the LGBT+ community.)
HIV is not AIDS. AIDS might be a death sentence, but HIV doesn’t have to be. And the two are very, very different afflictions.
Not actual high heel shoes, but I thought this was something that Tony would do so I wanted to draw it… ;w;
ok also like I am imagining a dick reveal after this
school doesnt even test your intelligence it tests your memory
it tests my patience
it tests my ability to hold my pee
it tests my ability to keep calm and not slap a bitch
There are four types of people at school.
First you have your Ravenclaws
then your Hufflepuffs
then your Gryffindors
and lastly, your Slytherins.
