"Please report as if trans people are people too: A portrait of Mayang Prasetyo" Last week in Australia a woman was murdered, and because she was a transgender sex worker most of the news stories chose to sensationalize the story, and use insulting language to talk about her. The articles rarely mentioned the very horrible statistics of violence against trans people. This is infuriating. Its bigotry, and its perpetuated on a mass scale through media outlets. I usually try to focus on positive things, but with this paste I wanted to put a little information out there, that any of the articles could have covered.

some helpful reminders about sex workers ♥

If sex workers aren’t selling their bodies, what are they selling?

their time, the sexual experience that they’re having/creating, and the products that they create.

sex workers sell a service. Unless they’re selling their own kidneys on the black market, saying that sex workers sell their bodies makes no sense at all.

But…aren’t ppl paying sex workers for…sex..? I don’t understand your logic

if you think having sex with someone automatically means you own their body, i feel so bad for anyone you’ve ever slept with.

AND then south park goes back to being transmisogynistic the very next episode… good job guys. wow. 
A scene with a trans woman “tricking” and raping a disabled boy, wonderful. 
#sarcasm. 
So fucking disappointing.. 
Plus whatever the fuck they were trying to satirize in this episode was completely lost on me. That might be my fault, but idk.

"The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century."

Never forget that the Ferguson police left Mike Brown’s body out in the hot summer sun, uncovered for more than 5 hours. Sound familiar? #staywoke #farfromover
