trans-folx-fighting-eds:

T-FFED Team members encourage you to join our Visibility Project for trans and gender non-conforming/non-binary folx struggling with ED issues!

The ED treatment funding org Project Heal recently sponsored a photo exhibit entitled ‘The Many Faces of Eating Disorders,’ featuring the same archetype of mostly white, young, female, cis, able-bodied folx: http://www.refinery29.com/2014/06/70126/eating-disorder-recovery-photos#slide  We want to situate EDs firmly in a social justice context; demonstrating what eating disorders REALLY look like and who suffers (often in silence) when we look at the folx most likely to struggle and least likely to be able to afford/access culturally competent and relevant treatment.

Let’s interrupt the total lack of marginalized community representation in ED media portrayal and draw attention to the epidemic of EDs in our trans and gender-variant communities, esp. low-income communities of color who cannot afford boutique recovery programs. Lack of representative research and access to affordable, gender-literate treatment does NOT eclipse the fact that we struggle disproportionately! Come join us in increasing visibility of EDs in our communities and in mainstream ED spheres! Find out more information and learn about how we’re working to transform the face of eating disorder recovery at www.transfolxfightingeds.org!

Conversation Starters: It’s raining—got a condom?
Did you know that during WWII, condoms were distributed to British troops not only with the intent to stop STIs from spreading, but with specific suggestions for non-sexual uses? One handy way to use a rubber was to seal your rifle—preventing grit and water from entering the barrel.
This method was so popular that an urban legend has it that the Russian military, finding the condoms sent by U.S. suppliers too small for their rifles, requested larger sizes. According to legend, FDR promptly sent back a box of extra-large condoms stamped “Medium.”

The swinging pendulum of sexism arrives! Ladies, Men can get raped too. Remember that.

Just to put some perspective in this for those people who may be confused at how a guy can get a boner but not really be sexually charged, so to speak…Ladies, you know how your nipples get hard for seemingly no reason (sans stepping into a cold room anyway)? You go to put on a shirt and your nipples are poking out like they haven’t seen daylight in over 40 years? Or you brush them up against something and BAMMO, nipple town? Or someone slaps you in the tits and they’re standing full mister?
You get where I’m going with this? Your sexual organs are built to respond to stimulus, be it one you personally find sexually gratifying or not.  Saying a dude who gets a boner while he’s otherwise not consenting to sex is lying about the fact would be like saying any girl who gets wet while getting raped is actually enjoying it/wants it.
so… you know… dont be stupid about this people. guys can get raped too and girls can most definitely be the fuckin perps.

People who think men don’t get raped are just as bad as the people who think men can’t control their urges to rape women. It happens less often, but it still happens, and it’s just as traumatizing for the male victim. You can’t just disregard a victim based on their gender.

Can we also include that females can rape other females and males can rape other males too?Every.Single.Person.Can.Be.A.Victim.Or.An.Offender

All of the above.

Had to reblog this because it’s so important.

This sums up everything I’ve been trying to tell these sexist bitches all week.
