When I started transition, almost 14 years ago, I imagined, I had this fantasy, that I would start taking hormones and in a few years, I was gonna blend in and no one would ever know that I was trans. I could just live my life undetected. And I knew a lot of trans folks like that, it was presented as the goal of transitioning. 

When I realized that I wasn’t blending in effortlessly, I had to sort of to reevaluate things for myself. I had to begin to think about and I’ve begin to own this transgender thing. It became something that I had to say, "Well, this is who I am." (x)

This woman… Right here.

Changing the world by being herself!

So just saying… Laverne Cox is fabulous!

Last night Amy Poehler read the final chapter of her new book to us and she is a true queen. It was inspiring, hilarious, poignant, silly, smart and perfect. I know we all are like AMY POEHLER IS QUEEN, but she actually is. She is empowering women of all ages, encouraging humans continually, and legitimately making the world a better place. I tried to tell her all this with a single glance from the fourth row but I think I just looked like a had a really bad/scary eye twitch.

:)

Yes.

Common Cause and more than 50 other advocacy groups this week called on Google to end its affiliation with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group that has pushed state laws limiting the rights of cities and towns to create community-owned broadband networks. ALEC also opposes network neutrality rules that Google used to be a staunch supporter of and last month urged the FCC to quickly approve Comcast’s purchase of Time Warner Cable without imposing any regulatory conditions on the merger.

Google silent on support for group opposing net neutrality and muni broadband

ALEC is so profoundly evil, and so profoundly anti-consumer, it’s so disappointing that Google supports the organization. What ever happened to Don’t Be Evil?
