With the music turned up really loudly because he’s a gentleman and he thought the noises were her having sex.

I have PMT and a cyst, am convinced nobody loves me, am really cold, was rejected for the job I really wanted, and am incredibly, INCREDIBLY stressed about my weekend jaunt to Sweden this weekend. Someone hug me.

unsurprisingly the claims that DNA which “proved” Aaron Kosminski was Jack the Ripper has been found to be unscientific

Happy Halloween from the Disney Princesses!

Feeling bad for my lovely friend at work. She had Friday off for her birthday weekend and was on the train to Manchester when she got a call saying her grandfather had died. Today’s her birthday and she’s spent it arranging funeral things and booking flights to Ireland, where he’s from, for the burial and mass. I’ve sent her a text but she was so lovely to me when my granny died and I hope I can be even a quarter as supportive as she was.

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

How do you do it?” I asked him. “Become all wonderful and lovely like you are out there?”
He turned and looked at me with shock, something dark and sad in his eyes. It slowly vanished.
“You are an odd one, aren’t you?” he asked from somewhere between his mot’s world and his cove’s. “You say little, but you make me want to talk about things that I don’t usually babble about, you know. Maybe it’s those eyes of yours. You don’t judge….”
I looked down. “Most folk find my eyes frightening.”
“My experiences with ‘most folk’ are not so good that I am inclined to follow their standard,” Okha said. His voice was very bitter. He turned back to his mirror. “I had very good teachers, people who took me in when my family cast me out. I worked and I studied, everywhere I went. But that isn’t what you’re asking.”
I shook my head. Since he wasn’t looking at me now, I added, “Not really. Your beauty comes from the inside. You don’t put that on with a brush and powder.”
“Inside I am a beautiful woman,” Okha said, fiddling with a perfect curl. “The Trickster tapped me in my mother’s womb and placed me in this man’s shell.”
I’d heard of many tricks done by the gods, but surely this was nearabout the cruelest. “I’m sorry,” I whispered.
“At least I understand what happened,” Okha said, getting to his feet and smoothing his dress. “How many like me live our lives without ever knowing? How many of us never feel right in the world where we live, and never realize that a god turned our lives all on end? Some of us even claim the Trickster is one of us, and makes us so She/He has company.”
“Have you asked the god?” I wanted to know.
Okha gave me a tiny, bitter smile. “The god touched me once, Beka. I’d as soon not get his attention again.

Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce

I love this quote. I’ve been known to read out parts of it to friends whenever I’m rereading Bloodhound. As a cis person with trans friends and a trans ex, there’s something about having an explanation for why transfolk are stuck with such a lot in life that’s comforting. Maybe I have no right to feel that way, but I do. I want Okha’s explanation to be true, somehow. And I love how Beka reacts to it. She isn’t weirded out; she has sympathy, and she still accepts Okha and turns to Okha for help. I wish she used female pronouns for Okha, but - how many people who just find out a friend is trans get the pronouns down right? I admit to having some trouble changing pronouns for a newly out trans person in college. It’s a switch in thinking that Beka wouldn’t do automatically.

I really want a short story about Okha’s realizing who he is, the training he went through, and the conversation with whoever first told him that the Trickster god tapped him.

I would LOVE to have a whole book about Okha learning to accept herself.
