I would've married you in Vegas, had you given me the chance to say, "I do."

If we're all made just a little bit broken,
tell me who is to blame?



THIS IS A BODY POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT

If you have just a moment to read and share this, it would mean the absolute world to both myself and my best friend, korysweet. No amount is too small and we are absolutely humbled by your incredible generosity. If you are unable to donate, please reblog this and signal boost to spread the word. 

We have absolutely no expectations so thank you in advance for any help that you are able to provide.

My best friend Kory is a nineteen year old transwoman from Saint Louis, Missouri. We met in 2007 at middle school and quickly became close. I have seen her flourish over these past seven years from someone who was never quite comfortable in their own skin to a new person - someone she has always been, finally being embraced and given the ability to be free and fly. 

However, Kory needs your help. 

For the past four years since she became public with her transition, she has grown as a person immensely. Most people are unable to see that in her heart, she feels very dysphoric and heavily depressed because the hormones she was born with are producing body hair that she should not have. She spends hours per day trying to eliminate evidence of facial and chest hair, money on different razors and hair removers that don’t give her the results she craves, and makeup that is quite costly due to the amount of coverup it provides. Despite all of these attempts, she still feels ugly. 


Every day, Kory points out transwomen who are further along in their transition, and in all of those examples, she tells me how much she wishes she never had to deal with hair again. As a transwoman, she automatically feels distant from her body, and although there are several factors in seeing her happy and confident in herself, laser hair removal is absolutely the most important at this time.

This disphoria is taking away her ability to feel comfortable and thus creates a fear in her when she is in public. The slightest glance or stare sparks an self conciousness that no person should have to fight. Due to the depression and anxiety cause by this, she is unable to seek employment and has lost motivation to live the life she so greatly craves. 

Laser hair removal is not the answer to 100% of the dysphoria she currently battles, but it is a start. This would eliminate a massive chunk of stress weighing on her shoulders, and she deserves to have this dream become a miracle. Kory does not believe that this will ever be a reality for her, and it would be such a blessing to see this happen.

41% of trans*people attempt suicide. I refuse to allow my best friend become part of that statistic. Daily, she grows increasingly sad because of her dysphoria. I want to do anything in my power to lessen the pain she has to feel. Kory is a devout animal lover who volunteers often to help animals in need. She is a fantastic friend who stands by you regardless of the quality of her mind at the time of need. This woman deserves to have this authentic, stress free happiness and freedom to be herself, and I will do whatever I possibly can to see her interior sunshine, the hope and wonder and thirst for life that I know lays within her come to life.

Thank you so much for your time.

I hope you all find someone who gives you cute names and tells you it’s adorable when you do embarrassing things and hugs you when it’s early in the morning and makes you feel like you have a whole disneyland fireworks show going off inside your body and never ever lets you go

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.
