since i already reblogged a post about mel gonzales (pictured right), i didnt want to pass by mentioning scarlett lenh (pictured left), a trans girl who won homecoming queen at her high school in colorado
Being trans doesn’t or at least shouldn’t entitle you to something, you can still be trans and a shitty person or an asshole. This isn’t equal treatment, this is special treatment and quite frankly I think it’s condescending.
Transgender people are, surprise, people — and we are entitled to the same things that cisgender people are entitled to. We are entitled to feel normal, which includes the ability to run in a meaningless popularity contest such as being homecoming king, queen, or gender-neutral royalty. We are entitled to not suffer, as trans students have in the past during homecoming when schools have purposefully misgendered students by having trans boys be put under “queen” on the voting slip et cetera. We are entitled to the same treatment that cisgender individuals receive, with the only difference that we are thankful for it — which I hope we are not someday, and I hope we are not thankful for it because it has become commonplace and something to be taken for granted. But right now? It is not common place, and it is not condescending to celebrate that trans students were (for once) not raped in a bathroom or treated like complete shit today.
tl;dr: its messed up that you think that trans students not being treated like shit is somehow “special treatment”.
i love how satanswaitin6669 (btw nice url champ, VERY edgy) just assumed that scarlett lenh and mel gonzalez both won exclusively because they’re trans as opposed to maybe because they’re, i don’t know, well liked enough to win homecoming queen and king?
and here it is.
my 24 hour comic
took 22 hours. and then a little longer for some edits but. I’ve still got another hour till my 24 is officially up, and I’m definitely gonna be snoozing.
For having no planning except a selkie design and a rough concept of the girl, I think I did alright. I definitely pushed my self to try new things and, I’m happy about that. there are some things I’d like to tweak but… NOPE! IM DONE!
I also learned how much I can get done when I don’t distract myself so much. have to figure out how to rein that in haha.
also, if you’re curious about the title! fun fact time thanks to wikipedia (so it may or may not be true)
Selkies (also known as silkies or selchies) are mythological creatures found in Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, and Scottish folklore. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal)
okay. sleep time.
logic at its finest
This is stupid though ‘cuz she’s headed for the door. He’s going further into the elevator. Even if the door isn’t open, there’s still a bit of a ledge near the door that you could stand on while bracing yourself against the railing. Once the door opens, you’d be in a good spot to exit via the door as well. What she’s going for is smarter than what he’s doing.
Also she clings to the rail, he throws his hands up. If he were to fall, he’d have nothing to hang on to, she’d at least be able to hold herself up by the rail
That guy does a sweet slide though
