  1. It's a true testament to my current state of mind/being/life that I saw the title for this video and thought, "Oh, I wonder if this'll give me tips on potty training Donovan..."

    It's incredible how much we take for granted, until you realize that others don't have even the simplest freedoms.

  2. Exactly.

    We complain about (cis) women making less than (cis) men, but don't even think about trans people being fired, or never hired in the first place, because they don't "mesh" with some [insert expletive here]'s idea of what a "man" or "woman" is.

    We make such a fuss about having a right to control our bodies when it comes to pregnancy and abortion, but don't realize that so many people are denied the right to control how they identify their body.
