People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
sweetexpressions15 asked: This is really random! But do you purposely not capitalize the first letter of all of your twitter/Instagram/tumblr sentences and captions? I've just noticed it. :)
capitalizing the first word means you have to keep capitalizing in the correct places and im just not up for that kind of commitment at this point in my life xo

Why not the desserts though. I’m down for desserts.
Anonymous asked: Can we see your shorter hair sometime?
I posted a picture last week. The nice lady took about 6 inches off.
these bags are cool as fuck (and tbh super fucking ideal) but how do you not get tackled by security or cops every five steps?
Anonymous asked: Why don't you post many selfies anymore?
I go through phases.
Like the moon.
I’m the moon.
Fact: blankets keep you safe at night. We dont know what from, but they are definitely an immunity against something.
