deviantfemme:

femme is welcoming and non-exclusionary for all queer and trans people.

femme is not about policing relationships, gender, body hair, or how much make up you choose to wear.

femmes are often marginalized, made to feel that their interests are frivolous or unnecessary,…

THAT IS RAPE


We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.

Just laughed so hard.

If you don’t get this, ur straight

Literally just clipped my nails.

hah! Just so everyone knows, before you get handsy with anyone (especially sensitive places like the vulva, vagina, and anus) clip those finger nails! So many people end up with little tears from manual sex that can become infected and really not fun. Plus, a lot of bacteria likes to live under our finger nails which again can cause infection. Make sure your nails stay clean! If you have a nice manicure, put on latex or latex-free gloves with a little cotton in the tips of the fingers to keep your partner safe and your nails perfect.

Support Trans Women of Color Collective

TWOCC was established almost one year ago after the brutal murder of Islan Nettles, a black trans woman in New York City. Since then we have brought visibility to this case and uplifted the narratives of struggle and resilience from our communities. From our multiple appearances at conferences, to our various talks, and our numerous accountability sessions we have created a new space for trans women of color leadership in the movement.We are an organizing collective, NOT a registered non-profit. We rely on grassroots fundraising to sustain the work. Trans women of color have historically — and continue to — put our bodies on the line for justice. The amount of unpaid emotional, physical, and psychological labor we do for our movements is astronomical. We are tired of the lip service that our allies give to trans women of color issues. We believe that the role of allies in our movement is to fund us so that we can do the work for ourselves! This is a fundraising campaign lead by allies to support our work. We need YOUR change, to make our own!

Product Review & Recommendation: Lunette Menstrual Cup

Product recommendations are always products I have found that have helped me reclaim back the areas my life that eczema controls or affects immensely. This product is obviously only for those who experience the lovely thing that is the menstrual cycle. It is…

Okay, you have to rinse the cup. I have two issues with this:

1. What is stopping me from bleeding all over the place while I stand, rinsing out this cup?

2. How is it even possible to change a cup in a public restroom? Not only would you bleed on yourself while rinsing, but you’re in public. And yummy… Rinsing vag blood out in a public sink.

This just doesn’t sound like a solid idea unless you have two cups, and/or you don’t bleed a shit ton like I do and therefore can wait until you’re back home to empty the cup.

I’m all for eco-friendliness and saving money, but that’s a huge problem I’m already seeing for this that wasn’t even covered in such a long review.

Because the cup lasts a lot longer than a tampon or pad, you can usually schedule so you don’t have to rinse it in public (like rinsing it out right before you leave and right after you get home). If you do have to rinse in public what is really helpful is keeping a bottle of water with you. While you’re on the toilet  just scootch back or stand up and rinse it out over the toilet. Then pop it back in and bam, good to go. 

That seems kind of inconvenient, having to keep a bottle of water in my purse. And for a person who goes through a super plus tampon and over night pad, worn at the same time, that would normally last 16 hours, in literally just 15 minutes? I’m not sure the cup can handle all that.

Thanks for answering but it just seems annoying having to keep bottled water in my little purse the whole time, at home and while out, just to rinse it off. And what to do when you forget the bottle?

I guess I shouldn’t really care though, lunette isn’t sold in my country anyway, it seems. If it works for other people, cool, but the problem of rinsing it out is kind of a deal breaker for me. At least it has a lot of cool benefits for the trouble and isn’t so bad if you don’t have an inhumanly heavy flow?

(side note: the name is weird to me because I keep reading it as the French word for glasses.)

Kind of off topic, but if you’re bleeding that much (especially if you feel any dizziness, pain, or sick feeling when you’re on your period) you may want to talk to your doctor. Bleeding that much can be caused by a health problem. 

However, Lunette can hold twice as much as a super absorbency tampon. There are also a lot of menstrual cups available, you may want to see if one is available in your area.

Of course the menstrual cup isn’t for everyone, I’m a cloth pad person myself. I do suggest trying it out if you have difficult periods though. It can decrease cramping and you have to change it less. 

I guess it’s worth a shot. How’re the reusables going? I contemplated using those as well. My fiance said gross, but I don’t give a flying mouse fart. It’s cheaper and helps lower our trash weight.

Side note: I’m thinking with eczema, bottled water availability is a much easier thing to worry about than skin irritation.

Side side note: I’m going to be put on the pill once I’m able, which might assist blood loss and prevent anemia. Til then, it’s going to be a hassle. Especially concerning laundry. So lame.

I love cloth pads. I have really sensitive skin and switching made me a lot more comfortable. Also, less cramping. With a lot of them you can add and take away padding for heavier days or lighter days. I used to always have leaking, but not anymore. You can also wear thin ones with cups if you’re worried about leaking. 

A few people have commented on these posts saying that they had heavier periods and the cups worked fine and a few said they didn’t rinse them out while they were out, just dumped them and wiped with toilet paper, and would rinse them out in the shower when they were home. That’s definitely an option! Hope you’re able to get on the pill soon, it helped a lot with my period symptoms.

“I was looking for a vibrator in the app store and I came across this gem! It’s just a vibrator on your phone but it allows you to connect with other people and they can control the vibrator for you and you can connect with either people you know or complete strangers. The only problem is that not many people know about this app so there aren’t many strangers you can connect with if any at all. But you can use this app with your long distance lover anyway ;) I just wanted to let everyone know about it!”
