Marsha P. Johnson

Pronouns: She/her

  1. This pioneer was a notable transgender rights activist and popular figure in New York City’s gay and art scene, as well as one of the city’s best known trans women of the times. She was a leader in clashes with the police amid the Stonewall Riots.
  2. She was a co-founder, along with Sylvia Rivera, of Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (S.T.A.R.) in the 1970s, and also the “mother” of S.T.A.R. House along with Sylvia, getting together food and clothing to help support the young trans women living in the house on the lower East Side of New York.
  3. Once, appearing in a court the judge asked Marsha, “What does the ‘P’ stand for?”, Johnson gave her customary response “Pay it No Mind.” This phrase became her trademark.
  4. In July 1992, her body was found floating in the Hudson River, shortly after the 1992 Pride March. Police ruled the death a suicide, but her friends and supporters denied this, and a people’s postering campaign later declared that Johnson had earlier been harassed near the spot where her body was found. Attempts to get the police to investigate the cause of death were unsuccessful.

What a gorgeous lady! I love her dress too<—I know NOT THE POINT but want to just honor that part of her.

Here it is! My RodeoH review! 
And this is the post with the full set of pictures! 
All of the photos were taken by my spouse Charlene

I am modeling the black and dark grey size XS briefs. 
Right out of the package they fit perfectly (per the sizing info on the website). I’m sure they will shrink in the dryer, but I couldn’t wait to use them! 
I immediately put my packer (a 6” Limpy) inside the underwear as my packer, and jumped around my apartment. Nothing happened. It moved a little bit, but didn’t flop out of the leg holes or anything. 

The entire time I wore the harness (even during sex) I packed. As a trans* man, this was astonishing for me. There wasn’t ANY dysphoria with this harness. Usually the process of putting on strappy instruction manual harnesses is so mechanical that all sexiness is taken out of the situation, and you’re forced to strip naked (which can be triggering for some people) in order to put it on. 
I had the inkling that my partner and I would be having sex, so I slipped it on ahead of time, and before bedtime when moves were made I could immediately insert her favorite toy and get going! It was miraculous! 
Throughout the sexual process, multiple positions were used, and there wasn’t any discomfort on either end for us. The base on the end of the toy is a little small, and I was worried it would slip, but it didn’t. I truthfully forgot that I wasn’t a biological male while having sex with my partner. How crazy is that. 

I give this harness 100%! It was versatile in that I could pack and play with it, which as a trans* man is essential, and it was the most comfortable thing that I’ve ever worn underwear or harness wise. If you don’t already own one of the RodeoH harnesses, you’re missing out on the best sex of your life. Guaranteed. 

To help you get your first RodeoH harness (or a new one!), here’s a coupon code for $10 off your entire order, plus free shipping. Just enter the name Riley at checkout, and go change your sex life forever. 

SPREAD THE WORD about this post! This is my first modeling gig. ;)

If you aren’t supporting trans women’s reproductive rights then you’re still a misogynist

snatching-fedoras:

Reproductive rights is not only about cis women having access to abortion and birth control.

It’s about trans women not being required to be sterilized in order to have legal gender recognition, too.

After bitching on twitter yesterday about how hard it is to find a decent source of trans news, like news about trans happenings, I decided to start my own twitter account to provide links to trans news, that was read by actual humans.

No Justice When Women Fight Back

Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00  By Victoria Law, Truthout | News Analysis

What do a nineteen-year-old lesbian from New Jersey, a 23-year-old trans woman in Minneapolis and a 31-year-old mother in Florida have in common? All three were attacked, all three fought back and all three were arrested. All three are currently in prison while their attackers remain free. Oh, yes, and all three are black women.

“The reason why trans* rights within the feminist fight are considered a ‘conundrum’ or a ‘debate’ is because there are some very loud people with some very strong misunderstandings about how gender based oppression works in real life. These people see a penis and think ‘rape,’ instead of ‘complicated.’ They see a uterus and think “universal experience.’”

Hello CeCe Supporters!

The Call-In campaign for CeCe to get her correct dosage of hormones was an incredible success!  The prison’s health administration were so “inconvenienced”, they were compelled to clear the issue immediately.

CeCe is doing fine and looking fabulous.  She is steadily devouring the books that everyone is sending - currently she is reading Angela Davis and is totally inspired.

She spoke a bit about the push from some supporters to launch large-scale campaigns to get Gov. Mark Dayton to pardon her, and/or to have her moved to a women’s facility.  She talked about how these campaigns would not only not benefit her, but how they exceptionalize her in a way that she doesn’t want.  

The pardoning process would not only be painful for her, but were she even to get considered, it wouldn’t be until after she served her sentence.  She thinks about people incarcerated for much longer terms than she, and for incredibly minor offenses (mostly drug related). Even if the emotional hardship of the process was something she felt up for, and even if the slim chance of it working actually succeeded, the outcome of her getting a pardon while others sat in prison is antithetical to her values and the whole reason she is struggling against this racist system in the first place. 

As for being transfered to a women’s facility, her thoughts are:  Prison sucks.  Period.  CeCe is not safe in any prison, women’s or men’s.  Prisons are not safe for anyone.  Period.  CeCe asserts (as do we) that incarcerated individuals should be able to decide for themselves where they would be safest within the system.  For now, CeCe is fine being in a men’s facility.  For supporters to push for her to be transferred from one hell to another only serves the purpose of misdirecting energy away from the real problems of incarceration in america, and the problem of the Prison Industrial Complex as a whole.  

To sum it up:  CeCe does not want supporters to launch long-term campaigns on her behalf that exceptionalize her situation..  Also importantly, these specific campaigns: a pardon from Gov. Dayton and getting transferred to a women’s facility, wouldn’t actually be beneficial to her at all.  Short term campaigns such as call-ins to administration, and media blasts, are targeted efforts that let the DOC know that CeCe has widespread support, and it sends a message that we are watching them and will respond to prisoner’s needs - CeCe’s today, and other incarcerated transpeople tomorrow.

CeCe sends her love and gratitude to everyone who called-in on her behalf.  She wishes that every wrongly incarcerated person had the same incredible support that she has, and prays for a world without bars, a world without cells.

Towards Justice,
CeCe Support Committee

Shit, CeCe is amazing.

kiriamaya:

This is your reminder that private insurance companies often refuse trans* people not only medically necessary transition care (which is seen by the insurance companies as “cosmetic” even though the medical community agrees it’s medically necessary), but also care which even the insurance companies consider medically necessary, on the grounds that transition is causing whatever the problem is and if you’d just stop transitioning, everything would be okay.

This is also your reminder that we have a feminist to thank for that.
