Mills College becomes the first single-sex school in the U.S. with policy accepting trans students

gaywrites:

Mills College, a women’s school in Oakland, California, has just made history.

The college has adopted a written policy explicitly stating that trans women are welcome to attend the school, making it the first single-sex school in the country with such a policy.

According to school officials, between 3 and 5 of the school’s 1,000 applicants each year identify as trans or gender nonconforming; this policy will make it easier for these students to apply and attend, should they so choose. The first students for whom the new policy applies will begin their classes this coming spring semester. 

“When people can be authentically who they are — that’s who Mills is,” said Mills senior Tess Fillbeck-Bates.

“This is really just a codification of our practice for several years,” said Brian O’Rourke, vice president for enrollment management.

This is a HUGE deal for students of all gender identities. When colleges and universities are inclusive and affirming on paper as well as in practice, it sets a standard for other schools to follow. Well done, Mills. Well done.

It’s been interesting to find out how much of my self-loathing is tied to body dysphoria.  I didn’t actually expect that, I just thought I was at this “Don’t hate it, but it doesn’t feel like mine” state.  But nah, apparently when you peel back all the camo that I had rocking on the self-loathing for so long, there’s actually a lot more body dysphoria than I thought.  For instance, I did not expect to be sitting here drippily crying because “I just really wanna be a boy.”   I guess the signs have been there for a while.  I was always intensely jealous of guys as a kid and teen, because I wanted their body parts. (Wow, that sounds creepy that way.)  I remember I thought it was intensely unfair, and almost resented guys over it.  And this was just me reading med books as a kid. And I kind of reacted by both defying and trying to be the best girl I could be?   So as a teen I became ridiculously anxious about being girly enough.  I remember trying to make my hair perfect and sobbing as I repeated the same ponytail 60 times. I feels weird to say now, because between doing a fuckton of work on my own to accept my body, and becoming aware that trans was a thing, but at the time, the disgust for my body went way beyond weight.  Particularly a lot of focus on how disgusting my nook was.  It feels kind of stupid now to say that I had no idea, but I has no idea.

This is one sort of experience I am referring to when I say, body dysphoria is normalized for female-assigned people -

Patriarchy means, among other things, that hating one’s “female” body is “just normal”, that when it happens people just don’t question it.

This cultural belief is a part of transmasculine invisibility and a reason why transmasculine people often figure out their gender identities later in life. (And why it’s hard for many people especially in that spectrum to pick apart trans-ness and other stuff!)

The converse of that is the cultural lesson that hating one’s “male” body is WRONG!!!111eleventyone!!! which is a huge part of transmisogyny - the idea that trans women and transfeminine people should be somehow grateful, because they got the superior model: right? right?? 

this post came across my dash at a really good time

i want to start an all-positive conspiracy theory movement. chemtrails promote healthy bones. the moon landing was faked to give people something to believe in. the reptilians only wear skin suits to avoid startling people.

Finished piece for the Homestucks for Charity blog. This reward was for nutellabeard, who requested some Jake and Jade! I hope this is okay- I took it to a pretty complete piece rather than just a sketch. Sorry for the delay, school has been hellish.

ocd-type tip from someone who has Seen Some Shit:

you know that moment where you feel like Everything Went Wrong and you fucked up and you’ve changed from Good You to Sad You? the transition doesn’t actually happen immediately. you get a sort of grace period, because your brain is still used to acting like Good You. it’s only after a while that anyone notices you acting different (if they notice at all). so if you can convince yourself that you didn’t fuck up Everything (which you didn’t, because as far as anyone’s concerned you’re still just fine) you can carry on with your life as if you didn’t fuck up at all!

this is the sort of thing that might not even make any sense if you’ve never dealt with this particular kind of OCD-slash-unidentified-flying-brain-problem. but it’s something i’ve realized that might possibly help if you do!

Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible importance, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.
The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”
So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.
There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.

In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.

i’m making a list of my favorite x-files episodes! this is just for fun and i’ll probably add to it as i keep watching, but here we go.

off the top of my head, and in order of air date:

S01E05 | the jersey devil

"Keep it up, Mulder, and I’ll hurt you like that beast woman." — Scully

S01E08 | ice

What’s really scary: alien parasites, or the paranoia soup that brews out of human fear and distrust and close confinement? …Probably both.

S01E17 | E.B.E.

A twisty, turny, unpredictable chase for the truth, always two steps ahead of you.

S02E01 | little green men

In what feels like a spot-on metaphor for depression, Agent Mulder deals with the close of the X Files project by struggling with his own conviction in the existence of the paranormal—and searching for something that will give him hope again.

S02E07 | 3

The episode where Mulder finally gets to explore his vampire kink. No, really.

S03E04 | clyde bruckman’s final repose

The agents meet a clairvoyant old man who doesn’t think his gift is as cool as Mulder thinks it is.

S03E12 | war of the coprophages

There’s a cockroach plague. Mulder hates insects.

…augh, there are so many more, but this is what happened when i tried to pick one. this is a wip. whatever.
