wanna know what a cow looks like washed and blow dried?
that is what a cow looks like washed and blow dried
I’d buy a coat made of this cow.
"Female-assigned intersex kids’ vaginal canal size is also assessed by doctors, to ensure that it’s long enough to fit a penis inside of it. Doctors might surgically construct or re-construct vaginas, which can result in a host of health problems and necessitate multiple, multiple surgeries. This is especially the case since most intersex kids have these surgeries very young, and when their bodies grow into their adult forms, more surgeries are necessary to keep their vagina size in proportion. Non-surgical methods are also used to increase or maintain vaginal length by regularly using medical dildos to stretch the vagina over months and years. (It’s kind of like braces for your vagina, but much, much worse.) Just like there are no standards for how long a clitoris “can” be before it’s classified as a penis, there aren’t absolute standards as to how long a vagina is for it to be of “normal” length.
I had a dilation procedure performed for almost every exam I had with intersex doctors from the time I was 8 until I was 16, so that they could check how long my vagina was as I grew. I absolutely hated these procedures. I mean, imagine a man as old as your father or your grandfather, who you don’t know, inserting a medical dildo into you each time you saw him, knowing that you can’t question the doctor’s orders and just accept that you have to undergo these uncomfortable procedures for your health. Imagine a decade or so later, realizing that these procedures did nothing to track your health, and had everything to do with grown men feeling good about the fact that you could fuck some dude someday like a “normal girl”. That all those traumatizing procedures weren’t actually medically relevant at all, and it actually was within my right to refuse those examinations.
I didn’t know any of that at the time.
I also had no idea that I wouldn’t want to ultimately have the kind of sex they assumed I’d be having, adding yet another layer of this-was-totally-unnecessary/messed-up to my history.
Other kids shouldn’t have to go through this. Other adults shouldn’t have revelations some day far into the future that what was happening to them WASN’T okay, and their traumatic feelings ARE valid, and the whole system of how intersex people are conceptualized and “treated” IS entirely fucked.
And it’s gotta change. We’ve gotta change it.

I just read this article and was reminded once again how invisible the intersex community often is… we need to signal boost this shit to let people know that this kind of “medical treatment” is NOT okay.
Intersex oppression is patriarchy, it is heterosexism, it is misogyny; it is simultaneously violent and invisible.
I dunno I never got wrapped up in theories about True Detective. I wasn’t expecting any kind of twist? I knew they were gonna catch the guy and possibly one would die or definitely be maimed. I’ve been off tumblr for a few weeks and maybe that had something to do with it. Had no idea ppl were really delving into conspiracies. I just watched the show to enjoy it (especially Rust’s soliloquies) and it was nicer that way.
People couldn’t accept it as a flawlessly made character piece. They wanted twists and turns when really it was a classic storyline, expertly executed, and entertaining as fuck.
Kevin Spacey is having trouble adjusting to not having any power when he’s not Frank Underwood.

If Rust saying he could feel his daughter’s love in the darkness didn’t have you in fits of hysterical crying, you are a monster not unlike Errol Childress.
honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
Fuck off. This isn’t respectful. Ugh.
The author could have dispensed of the faux nasty shit, but I guess then it wouldn’t have gotten so much attention. She’s sensationalised a Facebook post. She could have just been nice instead of criticising how the woman’s body looks. The only reason the author has “respect” for this woman is because she is exercising and perhaps trying to lose weight instead of having respect for her because she is a fucking human being, regardless of her appearance. This post suggests that if the author had seen her off the track, she would have looked at her as a ‘fatty’, with no evidence suggesting she deserved respect. You know what is better than reading a message like this about yourself, reading nothing about yourself. Because perhaps her body is not this bitch’s to comment on, perhaps it would be easier to get out in public and exercise if you knew no one was judging you, for the “better” or for the worse. Maybe people should mind their own fucking business.

Trying to find a movie to watch..
Me:What about The Art of The Steal? It’s a Kurt Russell movie.. A comedy heist movie..
Hayden: (Looking it up) It’s from 2013, why haven’t I heard of it?
Me: I don’t know, it’s got Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel…
Hayden: That’s why…
I’m so sick of (screen)writers writing about writers who are struggling but are brilliant. Fucking narcissists.
My uncle died last year, suddenly. He was 45. My granddad is going through his posts on Facebook and liking them. Technology can be a wonderful thing.
Nicoles (or to be exact, Nickys) always play netball. Find one Nicky that has never played netball, I dare you, you won’t, because it is impossible. All Nickys play netball. All of them.
