[…] We sell this idea of what you’re life is going to be to young girls from the fucking get-go. To be fair, that’s advertising, right? Selling you the life you want, no matter the age? Well, unfortunately, little girls can’t see through the bullshit. We internalize all of it. […]
Germany To Allow Parents To Choose No Gender For Babies On Birth Certificates:
With babies reportedly born without clearly determinable genitalia at a rate of 1 in every 1,500 — and many intersex individuals not exhibiting characteristics until later in life — the legislation seeks “to take the pressure off parents to commit themselves to a gender immediately after birth.”
"This will be the first time that the law acknowledges that there are human beings who are neither male nor female, or are both," stated University of Bremen law professor Konstanze Plett. "People who do not fit into the traditional legal categories… We will have fellow human beings with no sex registered. They can’t be forced into either one of the traditional sexes in these other contexts."

In fairness, this comic is not about what people do, but what people *should* do. And that is remember that the behaviors of the afflicted aren’t done necessarily because of inconsideration, malice, or lack of love but the illness tends to make them appear to behave in those ways. It’s a very difficult thing but one should try their best to remember that it’s not personal, it’s an illness. This is easier said than done, I know, but it’s something that’s important to remember, not just for depression but for any illnesses that affect the mind and behavior.

November is American Indian Heritage month. Did you know that there are at least 562 federally recognized tribal nations in the U.S.?
Matika Wilbur is attempting to photograph every one. Wilbur, of the Swinomish and Tulalip in Washington State, sold everything she owns to travel the nation taking portraits of her people. She calls the series Project 562 and aims to debunk myths about American Indian culture. “I’m not a Halloween costume. I hope to encourage a new conversation of sharing and to help us move beyond the stereotypes.”
"We are still here," she says. "We remain."
