"A German law takes effect today that establishes a third gender option for parents filling out birth certificates for newborn babies. They can choose ‘indeterminate’ if the child shows both male and female characteristics. The parents will make that choice by leaving the boxes for male and female genders blank. The new law is meant to avoid the need to label an intersex baby as male or female before the child is old enough to decide.
The child could also opt to remain classified as intersex. German passports ‘will soon be allowed to have an ‘X’ in the gender field…”

There is truth to stereotypes, but this does not mean that somebody should feel pressured to follow one because it’s what society says they should do. A christian gay does not have to become agnostic. A femme does not have to become butch just to be seen as a lesbian (an issue known as Femme Invisibility). A masculine straight girl should not have to prove that she is straight by becoming feminine!

Stereotypes are not a tool for you to find out somebody’s sexuality or gender identity.

We have 4 days left. 
4 days to generate as much funding and resources for this project as possible.
This plea for funds comes from a very important place. You may have seen many of these posts, we have certainly been posting a lot! But this is just because of how passionate we are for this project.
Out of the trans* people running it, we have all experienced abuse, discrimination, some of us violence, some have been abandoned by our families, some had abusive relationships, and much more. This project does not come out of just a quest to make a difference.. this project comes from an utter desire to make sure no young trans* people suffer the things we have lived through! 
We cannot ask you enough, and we cannot emphasise our passion enough, all we can say is:
Please.. Just please, help us. 
Don’t ignore this – don’t think this is not your responsibility, or your problem: 
Please,  Just help.

Did you know? Prom is coming up! And you have a right to express your gender identity. Your school may be violating the law if it doesn’t allow a female student to wear a tuxedo or a male student to wear a dress.

A proposed new (non-binary inclusive) trans* symbol.
Not gonna lie, I got a little giddy when I saw it.

I really like it. Aw man.

OH MAN HOW COOL IS THIS

Every time I see this post on my dash, I am just blown away with the levels of meaning it has. Because the asterisk has often been used as an inclusive signifier for the suffix “trans,” and the symbol is obviously referencing that.
But if you look closely, the asterisk attached to the circle contains both the female and male (Venus and Mars) symbols.


And if you know much about the meanings of astrology symbols, you could even argue that there’s a third glyph in there. Because male/Mars is drive (arrow) over spirit (circle), and female/Venus is spirit (circle) over matter (cross). And when you’ve used those, you’re left with what could be interpreted as mind (crescent) over spirit (circle). And I really think it would be quite useful for anyone who doesn’t fit in the gender binary.

So yes. All the awards to the creator!

That is beyond cool!

This is a fantastic and excellent bit of design. Good on the creators.

This is just really beautiful, goodness!
