For those of you in New England that have disabilities there is an exhibition expo in Boston September 5-7. I have never gone, but am hoping/planning on going this time. If I do I am sure I will inform you all of the things I have learned and found! <3

This morning I woke up to a TIME cover story about the trans movement being at a tipping point and seeing my dear friend and sister Laverne Cox on the cover. Such a major media moment for a trans woman of color to be visible and vocal in this way, helping spark multiple conversations about identity, about the intersection of race, class, gender and so much more. 
The cover story is not available online (you must purchase the magazine or get a digital subscription) but a behind-the-scenes video and Q&amp;A with Laverne is.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WERK

It seems like the title of an onion article, but it’s actually very serious. A study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that hurricanes with feminine names killed significantly more people than hurricanes with masculine names.  The authors looked at several decades of hurricane deaths (excluding extreme outliers like Katrina and Audrey) and posed a question: 

Do people judge hurricane risks in the context of gender-based expectations?

 According to their study, the answer is a big yes.

Laboratory experiments indicate that this is because hurricane names lead to gender-based expectations about severity and this, in turn, guides respondents’ preparedness to take protective action.

In other words, because of some deep-seated perceptions of gender, people are less afraid of hurricanes with feminine names. And that means they are less likely to evacuate.

damn.  looks like mother nature is coming for your sexist ass.

Mila Kunis Against Men Saying “We Are Pregnant” - Video

didn’t “we’re pregnant” start as a way to express solidarity?  that’s how i always thought of it.  it puts the non-pregnant person in a supportive role and i think that’s kind of sweet.  but it’s also true that the non pregnant person is um…..not pregnant….and prolly shouldn’t act like they know the struggle  :P
