Help needed- let’s change the Google results for ‘gay Muslims’

amillionexpectations:

At the moment, when searching for ‘gay Muslims’ on Google, the anti-gay website ‘gaymuslims.org’ is top of the search results. For a Muslim struggling with accepting their sexuality, coming across this website when searching the internet could be disastrous.

I want us to get the search result for ‘Imaan’ (a UK based LGBTQ Muslim support group) to the top of the list if we can.

To help, please do the following:

  • search for ‘gay Muslims’ on Google
  • Click on the result for ‘Imaan London’ (imaanlondon.wordpress.com) which is about 7 results down the list.
  • Ask your friends to do the same

Hopefully, this ‘googlebombing’ technique will raise the search result for ‘Imaan’ to get to the top of the list and hopefully help LGBTQ Muslims looking for support.

The Ten Binding Commandments 

  1. Never wear a binder so tight that you have a hard time breathing in it.
  2. Never wear a binder or binding device that doesn’t have a form of elastic within the fibers. Your binder must allow you to breathe in and out without any trouble.
  3. Never wear a binder for more than 12 hours in a single day. Optimum wearing time is between 8 to 10 hours, and less is always better. Bind as little as you can stand to.
  4. Never wear a binder when you sleep. Your breathing slows when you sleep and your muscles relax. The binder could become too tight and cause apnea symptoms (you could stop breathing in your sleep) and could cause fluid to build up, resulting in a form of pneumonia.
  5. If you hear a rattling or wheezing in your lungs when you breathe in or out, take off your binder NOW and cough hard a few times to loosen up fluid. This means you have been wearing your binder too long or too tight.
  6. If you continue to hear rattling of fluid in your lungs for more than 24 hours, see your doctor. Do not ignore this; you could be heading toward pneumonia.
  7. Always cough hard a few times when you take off your binder for the day. This will loosen any fluid that has built up in your lungs or the pleura of your lungs. Be sure to follow with a few deep breathing exercises to open the lungs.
  8. If your muscles under your binder twitch or spasm, take off your binder and give them a rest. Muscle spasms are likely due to a diet poor in magnesium. Many people using testosterone have reported muscle spasm problems, which are helped with a good magnesium supplement. Always consult your doctor before starting any supplement!
  9. In the long term (over months and years), binding can make the breast tissue less dense, which causes the breasts to sag/droop. This may or may not bother you, but it’s something to be aware of. It is permanent. The less dense the breast tissue is, though, the less it will resist and try to stick out when you bind.
  10. Buy a binder that compresses the breasts just enough to hide them, but does not compress your rib cage. 

Saw someone asking about sleeping while binding, so looked around for this, and figured I’d post it here also.

1419) I’m turning into an asshole. Because according to society men can’t be nice or treat women with respect and if they do then they’re probably gay.

gayxxboy:

if you’re really doing this just to be more ‘like a man’ then you’re an idiot. transitioning isn’t supposed to be about altering everything about yourself to live up to every stereotype to fit in to a gender role. it’s meant to be about being yourself. if you think you need to change yourself for the worse to be a man you need to grow up and think about what you’re actually doing with your life.

and what’s wrong with people thinking you’re gay anyway? why is that a problem?

I’ve never talked directly to my older sister about my trans status, but it’s things like this that tell me that she couldn’t care less about my gender.

WPATH announces new standards of care for transgender and gender nonconforming people

^ Please click-through to read in full!

Some key revisions:

• Psychotherapy is no longer a requirement to receive hormones and surgery, although it is suggested.

"It used to be a minimum amount of psychotherapy was needed. An assessment is still required but that can be done by the prescribing hormone provider," Bockting explained.

• A number of community health centers in the U.S. have developed protocols for providing hormone therapy based an approach known as the Informed Consent Model. These protocols are consistent with version 7 revisions of WPATH’s standards of care. 

"The SOC are flexible clinical guidelines; they allow for tailoring of interventions to the needs of the individual receiving services and for tailoring of protocols to the approach and setting in which these services are provided," Coleman explained.

"Access is more open and acknowledges transgender care is being provided in community health centers. This certainly makes it easier to access hormones," Bockting added.

• There are now different standards for surgery, as well. For example, a transgender man who wants a hysterectomy no longer has to live one year as a male in order to receive the surgery. Likewise, a transgender woman who wants her testicles removed does not have to live one year as a female. 

For people who want genital reconstructive surgery, however, the standards of care recommend living a year in the role of the gender they are transitioning. 

• Another major change, Bockting explained, is that the standards “allow for a broader spectrum of identities – they are no longer so binary.”

"There is no one way of being transgender and it doesn’t have to mirror the idea of a change of their sex," Bockting explained.

"These standards allow for a gender queer person to have breasts removed without ever taking hormones," he said.

[TW FOR ANTI-TRANS AND RACIST VIOLENCE AND HATE SPEECH]
SUPPORT CECE MCDONALD! 
CeCe McDonald is a young African American transgender woman charged with “second degree murder” after an incident that began when she was violently attacked because of her gender and race.
DROP the charges and FREE CeCe!
CeCe is a creative and energetic person who, before her life was so unjustly interrupted, was studying fashion at MCTC. She had a stable home where she lived with and helped support four other African American youth, her family. CeCe’s family describes her as a leader, a role model, and a loyal friend. She is known as a wise, out-spoken, and welcoming person, with a cheerful disposition and a history of handling prejudice with amazing grace.
Around 12:30 am on June 5, CeCe and four of her friends (all of them black) were on their way to Cub Foods to get some food. As they walked past Schooner’s Bar in South Minneapolis, a man and two women (all of them white) began to yell epithets at them. They called CeCe and her friends ‘faggots,’ ‘niggers,’ and ‘chicks with dicks,’ amongst other things.
As they were shouting, one of the women smashed her drink into the side of CeCe’s face, slicing her cheek open, lacerating her salivary gland, and stinging her eyes with liquor. A fight ensued, with more people joining in. What happened during the fight is unclear, but within a few minutes Dean Schmitz–one of the attackers–had been stabbed.
CeCe was later arrested, and is now falsely accused of murder
For a month, CeCe was kept in solitary confinement “for her own protection”; she had no say in this matter. Finally, she was transferred to a psychiatric unit in the Public Safety Facility. It was nearly two months before she was taken back to a doctor to check up on the wound on her face, which by then had turned into a painful, golf ball-sized lump.
Later on, CeCe’s friends were harassed on the street by people they recognized from the scene of the fight. Individuals circled the block that CeCe’s friends were walking on and called them ‘niggers’ and ‘faggots’ and told them to ‘go back to Africa.’ When they attempted to wave down a passing squad car for assistance, the officer driving the car said he would not help them.
Help us fight for CeCe, and for an end to racist, transphobic violence in our communities! Visit our What You Can Do page and find out how to get involved.


REBLOG THIS NOW.

Please help free her or signal boost if you can


So wait a minute. White trans* person gets beat up for being trans by black people, and her attackers get 30 years in prison. Black trans* woman gets beat up for being BOTH BLACK AND TRANS, and SHE ENDS UP IN JAIL? AND her friends get racially harassed with no recourse? Fuck the system. Burn it to the ground.

Trails End Farmers Market: Stop Discriminating Against Transgender People

livelaughawesome:

“On September 10th, 2011 three transgender individuals were running a booth at the Trails End Farmers Market in London, Ontario, Canada. These individuals were working for another non-LGBT business owner selling incense and candles. Business was running smoothly throughout the busy day. Later that evening the owner of the booth received a call from the manager at the farmers market telling her that she needed to remove the transgender individuals from her booth or she could take her booth elsewhere. Their justification was that this was a family-friendly business and they didn’t want that sort of ‘population’ in their establishment and that they made people uncomfortable (the manager did not provide proof of these claims when asked repeatedly). Sign this petition to tell the Trails End Farmers Market that we live in a diverse society and that it is discriminatory to forbid certain individuals from running booths in their establishment. Transgender individuals are not ‘unfamily-friendly’ and they were merely selling candles. Feel free to also give them a call or send them mail and tell them you disagree with their practices!

I just wrote a whole ranty post about asexuals and using the word “queer” but then my internet decided to fuck with me and refreshed and I lost everything

summary of argument:

  • denying aces access to the community [I guess I can’t call it “queer community” if we aren’t allowed to be queer] on the basis that we have different experiences is shitty because otherwise it would just be the LGB community with no trans* people or intersex people or polyamorous people [etc].
  • usually sexual queers who make the “asexuals can’t be queer/aren’t oppressed” argument generally ignore the existence of any asexuals except hetero-romantic aces, who obviously benefit from straight privilege. [sarcasm]
  • denying aces the ability to use the word “queer” is also kinda shitty. sexual queers can’t know aces’ experiences, whether the word “queer” has been used against them, and if only people who have been called “queer” maliciously can reclaim the word then that excludes the transgender community [at least in my experience, “queer” isn’t a trans-specific slur; correct me if I’m wrong] so it’s all around a complex/problematic argument.

@ “denying aces access to the community [I guess I can’t call it “queer community” if we aren’t allowed to be queer] on the basis that we have different experiences is shitty because otherwise it would just be the LGB community with no trans* people or intersex people or polyamorous people [etc].”

Actually, much of the LGBT community only acknowledges the LG part as it is. Bis are “indecisive sluts” trans* are “eww gross!” Pans “don’t exist because “there are only two genders” and of course, aces “can’t exist” because “everyone wants sex”. Therefore we (anyone who isn’t LG) must be either lying or mentally/physically ill.

… God, it’s ridiculous.

I’m just a regular guy. All these ideas that children shouldn’t watch me…it’s crazy. For all of those kids and teens out there with gender dysphoria i think it’s going to have a really positive impact. I know that when I was growing up if I had seen someone like me on a show like this it would have made all the difference in the world. People who don’t have gender dysphoria are not going to catch it from watching me dance on television.

Chaz Bono’s response to Dr. Keith Ablow, a psychiatrist and Fox News commentator,  who recently wrote that watching Chaz compete on the ABC serie Dancing With The Stars as the first transgender, would be ‘toxic’ for children.

It shouldn’t be allowed for a medical professional to say things like that in the media without pointing out that it is his personal opinion and not based on anything he was ever taught in med school! And he just told all the kids out there who feels they were born in the wrong body that they are toxic!

Fire his ass!
