I still know a number of women who get crap for dressing "too manly" or looking "butch" if their style isn't considered feminine enough. That's to say nothing of full on crossdressing.

So I have a membership with one of those sites that runs sales on different brands; this one happens to focus on clothes and toys for children but sells items for mothers, too. I was browsing their current sales, and they've got Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl shapewear and something called Cowgirls/Cowboys of Faith.

I have 20 minutes to kill before class. I need the class before mine to finish so I can go in and move the only lefty desk towards the front. I can't hear from the back and there's only 9 of us, so I'd look really anti social.

I should have brought my kindle

They where clearly meant to be.

Even doing generic google searches I end up with results tagged "hot inuit girls" and shit like that. Almost all the pictures I am finding are either sepia toned historical photographs of traditional clothing, or white women in Halloween costumes. I've managed to find a total of 7 suitable images to use as better reference then what I had prior.


HEY GUYS. Let's the play the game "Things people on dA label as 'Inuit' that aren't*":

'Sitka Surfboards.

Halloween costumes with the words 'Eskimo', 'Cutie', or 'Sexy' in them

The notches of a tree: The artist claimed they took this closeup shot of the notches in a tree because 'It looked like an Inuit'.
*This does not mean the photographs are bad, the people who took them are bad, or the people in them are bad.

What I do find are lots of white American girls (with no Inuit heritage, don't even bro)who are posing with their camo-patterned winter coats and pulling the hoods up so the fur is in the way and they make 'angry' or 'powerful' looking faces at the camera.Sometimes they throw on some green 'army paint' under their eyes and scowl at the camera.

The fuck is going on here. What is with all the white American girls posing in Fair Isle (WHICH IS SCOTTISH IN ORIGIN) and tagging it as 'Inuit'. Stop that. Stop that right now.

CLEARLY.


My bet was Sheamus ending up involved with something less shitty. But uh. Yeah. Let's go with more of John Cena's stupid face.

I will say this, the look on their face when the table just crumbled beneath them was priceless. That had to hurt..

Also;
A for effort 'Goldust'. I liked your brothers mustache.


Cody Rhodes' reasons for growing a musache is GREAT. He's engaged, and him growing one out is his personal 1-man bachelor party b/c he's straight edge (not unlike Punk). I admire that.

As for Rock Vs Cena 2. UGH. Does this mean 3 months of terrible promos. The WWE had to STOP Rock/Punk exchanges after the first one, where Punk tore him a new one and Rock could only come back you "LOL UR GAY, COOKIE PUSS" and the crowd turned on him.

Now we have 3 months of basically what comes down to Xbox live shit-talking. While the guys with the legit talent are pushed to the side. UGHHHHHHH.

So that's what was up with the cookie-puss signs!? None of us could figure out what the heck everyone was going on about.

And then that random dude with the 'Grumpy-Cat Hates Jobbers' sign. Wat.

Yeah, the Rock mark's (ugh) got behind "Cookie-puss", because they're the type of people who are willing to drop $30 on a tee-shirt that say "Boots 2 asses", because FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.

<-- Will still see GI Joe 2, because RZA.

As for Grumpy-Cat....IDK Emmers. IDK. Can't help you there.

My grandmothers 85th birthday was yesterday, left a message for her and talked to her earlier today. She really wants to see me. My mom said that she's lost tons of weight and is really sick, my mom thinks this is the last Christmas for my grandmother.

Even though I've been told that, and knew it, it didn't really hit me until hearing this kind of desperate tone in her voice today that I realized fully my grandmother is dying.

For a long time I thought I wouldn't care, because of how horrible she had been to me and my mother, and I would say nasty stuff about her and that I wouldn't care if she died. But when it comes down to it I find myself feeling incredibly sad and lonely, and hearing that little tone of desperation in her voice as she talked about wanting to see me again just sent me over the edge.

Sometimes people do bad things and it's really not something you can easily forgive . Sometimes they say awful terrible things that hurt you again and again, and you just know you can't forget them.
Sometimes they're scared, and alone, and hurt, and you still don't forgive them or forget what happened but you love them anyway. Even if it's not in a Disney-Film kind of picturesque way, you still care about them.

I understand why my mother had to forgive my grandmother, because at the end of all things part of her will die with her mother and she can't let this happen on a bad note with them arguing and hating one another.

True. I figure I could actually get away with it because I already dress pretty boyish. I guess the main problem is that the reason I feel a need to start crossdressing is because I've been having gender issues.... and that's what my parents would flip out about/disown me for.

I am not trying to presume what you may identify as, or will in the future, but this links to good resources for young people and could be worth looking into if you feel unable to speak with your family.

This blog is run with support for people who identify outside of what may be considered 'typical' and the woman who runs it is currently in a relationship with a man who is Female-to-Male transgendered (which I am not claiming you are, or will be). If you ask to speak with her and her boyfriend they may be able to find you some resources and advice on exploring what your feeling.

Also, you might have heard or been told that 'dressing like a boy' means your gay or that you want to be a boy. That isn't true. Simply dressing in clothing that is typically considered 'male' or 'female' does not make you gay, transgender, or anything else like that. If you are in a comfortable place with a doctor you feel open to speak with, you may want to discuss this with them as well. A good doctor can help you come to understand what it is your feeling and how your looking to express that, as well as giving you a place to discuss these feelings and changes with someone you trust since your family is very clearly not a supportive resource for you.

Thank you for these resources, I will definitely look into them. I've been feeling confused for several years now, and it wasn't until a few months ago that I finally came to terms with both my sexually and gender. Just to clarify, the label I find I identify with most would be bigender, as I don't feel I'm in the wrong body, per se, but I don't always identify with the female gender, and in crossdressing I want to be able to express the "other me", or rather, the masculine me, outside of just crossplaying. For a long time I struggled, wondering if I was homosexual or transgender, but neither of those really seemed right in describing how I felt.

Thank you again for both of these resources, I will look into both of them. With the exception of my best friend, I am alone in support on this sort of topic. I was raised in a Christian, closed-minded household. To my parents, there is straight, gay, male, and female, and that's it. Anything else is deemed a phase or a mental illness in their minds, which is why I can't talk to them about it. I'm already being treated for depression-- my mom would likely claim it's a phase or just a side effect of sorts.

I am sorry you don't have many supportive resources..that's a very tough place to be in and certainly not fun at all. I do suggest that blog as a place for nothing but positivity in all it's forms. Many of the people who speak on there have struggled with mental health, and identify differently than 'boy' and 'girl'.

Unfortunately I don't really know of many other resources that don't specify in specifically with homosexual or transgender individuals. But you could always send that blog an 'ask' and see if anyone knows of some resources for you.

I really love this blog. Being someone of my size, self-love does not come easily, at all. It wasn't until just a few months ago that I could even feel somewhat okay with my body, and the mental health issues I've been having haven't helped. This is a really great blog. ^_^

"Depression is not selfish. Anxiety is not rude. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Mental illness isnít self-centered, any more than a broken leg or the flu is self-centered. If your mental illness makes you feel guilty, review the definition of ďillnessĒ and try to treat yourself with the same respect and concern you would show to a cancer patient or a person with pneumonia. "

I needed this. <3

Fish - I'm sorry you're in that situation.

Are you seeing a therapist for your depression? If you are and you feel comfortable you can always talk to them. They usually don't tell your parents what you talk about unless you're in danger of hurting yourself or another person.
The might be able to help you sort out anything you're confused about.

And you know we're here if you need to vent.
