Tumblr has made itself a safe space for trans women but not trans men. People on this site are like “feminism needs to make room for trans women! protect trans women at all costs!” but trans men are rarely discussed on feminist blogs. Laverne Cox is a great activist for trans women but I can think of zero trans men in mainstream media. And nobody on this site complains. And don’t tell me they have male privilege because that is some bullshit.
"Men aren’t being talked about enough in feminist spaces" is literally what you just said.
If you want some safe spaces for trans men, make safe spaces for trans men. There are tons of blogs on tumblr specifically for trans men and dfab trans people. If you want to talk about trans men, talk about trans men. Don’t ask for feminists to misgender you so you can inject men into spaces and discussions by and for women.
Anonymous asked: Yo, White Supremacists have killed more Americans domestically in the last 13 years than Islamic terrorists. Clearly this means airports are gonna start screening white people primarily right?
It doesn’t, our “national security” apparatus is a racist joke.
Have you seen a Toco Toucan hop down stairs lately? Or a Keel-billed Toucan bathe with a glass of restaurant water?

As they grow, young birds subsisting on white bread and other inappropriate food sources can develop issues preventing their bones from forming normally, resulting in angel wing. (via Feeding White Bread to Wild Birds is Killing Them | One Green Planet)
In general feeding wildlife is bad, and that includes birds, if you’re going to feed wildlife make sure what you’re doing is not hurting the animal, and be sure it is legal where you are located as many parks ban the feeding of waterfowl/pigeons to try to avoid negative human/bird interactions and keep the park cleaner.
The article has great suggestions for better alternatives:
“Nutritious waterfowl feed or duck pellets are inexpensive, easy to carry, and can be purchased at most feed stores. Seedless grapes cut in half, shredded kale, Swiss chard or romaine lettuce, and grains, including wheat, barley and oats, are all healthy food sources that will appeal to most waterfowl. Make sure anything you feed is bite-sized to avoid choking hazards.”

Mouse over text on the comic’s webpage: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”
