Don’t even lie: we were all anxiously waiting to see if Monty was enough of a troll to include Enabler on that scene

Transgender people whose voice doesn't match their looks turn to new app →

So, this report was on the local NPR station while I was driving home with my son tonight. 

I asked him after the fact, “Did that make sense, what the app does?”

"Kinda?" He’s 11, you may recall, and has just started middle school. The age when children really start to learn what cruelty means.

"Do you know what transgender means?"

"No …"

"So it’s like … here’s an example. When a baby’s born, the doctor looks and sees that the baby’s got a penis. Doctor says, ‘It’s a boy,’ right?"

"Yeah?"

"And all throughout that kid’s life, parents and doctors and teachers call him by a boy’s name, and everyone treats him like a boy, and his parents buy him clothes for a boy. But every once in awhile you’ll get someone who doesn’t believe it. Like, way down deep, in their heart of hearts, they know they’re a little girl.." I’m tripping over my words a little here, desperate to explain this to him right, because I know what I say might stick with him for a long time, or maybe forever. “And when they get older, like a teenager or an adult or so, they might decide to start expressing themselves as a girl or a woman instead. It goes the other way too - someone raised all their life as a little girl knows down deep he’s a boy. Sometimes these folks will go so far as surgery to really seal the deal. That make sense?”

"Yeah?" he says, and I believe him. I believe that he can imagine such a person, even if he’s never met one.

"So like, this app, it helps them train their voice, so that the voice that comes out of their mouth matches the voice that speaks inside their head. It can help them be more confident in who they really are. Make sense?"

"Yeah. That’s really cool."

"You think so?"

"Yeah," he says, and I think he’s really warming up to the idea. What he may lack in vocabulary to express endorsement, he makes up for in tone and enthusiasm, like a pre-teen boy does. "That’s really cool."

"Cool, I’m glad you think so. Because out of a group of a hundred random people … well, I don’t know how many might be transgender, but it’s a pretty small number. And like anyone who’s a minority in a group, they get picked on a lot. Bullied. Beaten. Killed, sometimes. So it’s super brave for someone to really own who they are if they’re transgendered, you know?"

"Yeah," he says, in that way that I know he wants to say how it sucks, but he doesn’t really know how.

"So I mean, an app like this can help them with their confidence. And you may never know if someone is transgendered unless they tell you. But just like anyone else who’s getting picked on for some bullshit, you show compassion for them, right? Be good to them if someone is being bad."

"I will."

I hadn’t planned on having this chat with him, but frankly I’m glad this report came on the radio. I hope I did right by him, explaining things as best as I understand them. There was no way to touch on all the nuances, and I can’t even pretend I totally get it, either. But … I hope it’s a good start for him to have some understanding and compassion for the first time he meets a transgendered person. 

Love your approach.  LOVE.

Adult women are now the largest demographic in gaming →

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

I cannot wait for men to cry about this

The first picture is me and my twinbrother when we were 3 years old. The second picture is me on my brother’s funeral. He was 18 years old and killed himself. I don’t care if this ruins your blog. I want you to reblog this and make a statement.

The first picture is worldfamous. Even Kendall Jenner posted it on her instagram account.We were on the news because no one knew that the picture was 15 years old. But people need to realize that life isn’t as pretty as the picture tells us. Life is cruel. Just like our society. And I’ve lost my best friend because of it. Teenagers are suppose to have fun, instead of thinking about killing themselves. 

I hope this will get to Kendall Jenner and she’ll defend my statement. Because no one will probably listen to me…
