Anonymous said: What's wrong with cis men playing trans women in film and TV?

femifeisty:

Cis men aren’t trans women, and trans women aren’t cis men playing dress-up-make-believe. 

Trans women are women with real narratives and voices that should be prioritized, not to mention they have actual experience with being trans. 

Cis men have enough media representation.

"people of color"

the term “people of color” in the american context is about a common struggle of those colonized by white imperialism, in and out of u.s. borders. 

but when it becomes a way for non Black POC to claim the struggles specific to Black folks it is counter productive! we gotta remember theres a difference between solidarity and co-option !

No More Deaths/No Más Muertes

"From March 16th-23rd, 9 members of F.R.E.E. will spend spring break making a trip to the US/Mexico border in Arizona to volunteer for No More Deaths Phoenix, an organization that provides humanitarian aid (food, water, medicine) to migrants attempting to cross the border.

We recognize the role of inhumane US immigration policies and trade policies in this ongoing human rights crisis, and that the survival of migrants can be an important way of resisting this.

HOWEVER, the main thing holding us back is funding. No More Deaths estimates that we will need $2575 (not including car rental) just to do this trip. We are camping outside in the desert, so this money will only be for gas, food, and the supplies we are leaving out.

PLEASE donate anything you can to our No More Deaths fund, any small amount will help. You can donate online through our Gofundme web page, or you can come by the F.R.E.E. table at the quad and donate in person!”

It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.

Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.

The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of  many children playing at the site instead of attending school.

When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.

Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.

Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.

There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.

Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.

Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.

One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.

10 examples of #AAPI’s rich history of resistance | from Reappropriate

In the wake of the #AsianPrivilege response hash-tag to #NotYourAsianSidekick and #BlackPowerYellowPeril, it appears as if (among other misguided ideas) there is a prevailing notion out there that, in contrast to other minorities, Asian Americans “lack a history of resistance” (or that we think we do), and that this invisibility and dearth of civil rights history actually confers upon the Asian American community a form of racial privilege.
Putting aside the second half of that assertion regarding privilege for a minute, there’s one other major problem: any argument that relies upon the assumption that Asian Americans lack a history of resistance is patently ahistorical.
Like really, really, really wrong. Like insultingly wrong.
After the jump, here are 10 examples of Asian American’s history of oppression and political resistance.
