Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.
You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!
Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU GUYYYYSSSSSSSSSSSS
reblogging this again with a link to their Kickstarter here
I WANT THIS SO MUCH
This looks pretty cool:
Q:I've been in a relationship with a man and I've told him i feel more comfortable as a man but he views it as silly dress up thing it doesn't help i dress him up as a girl because i think he looks better like that don't mind being a girl but i don't feel like myself my breast my hair my cloths they don't feel like me it's hard to try to tell people i'm trans and strait because they see them as too different things so everyone say's i'm just a tomboy but it's more then that i'm a boy inside help?
Ok. There’s a lot here and I’m going to try and dissect it as much as possible.
First, often trans people find it difficult to date the vast majority of cis people. It’s clearly not impossible or unheardable of, but generally you take on some extra responsibility in educating them on what it’s like to be transgender and how the world perceives and treats trans people. With that being said, in my experience, cis men tend to be the most difficult to enlighten on these issues - generally due to their own hangups on what masculinity is and how their partner fits into that.
DRESSING HIM UP
I see where you’re going with the dressing him up kind of thing, but honestly it’s different. The fact of the matter is you should have to go to such drastic means to help him understand. Also, it’s highly problematic to push for him to do so because you think he looks better. It’s just as wrong as him pushing your assigned sex/gender on you because you look better to him. I’d stop that behavior and mindset in its tracks ASAP.
GENDER + SEXUALITY
Many people don’t understand the vast complexities of gender and sex and how they fit together. That being said, if you’re in a relationship with a cis man and you identify has straight - how is that supposed to work? Unless maybe your sexuality is a little queerer than that. But also, you insistence on flip flopping both of your genders seems to include a lot of internalized transphobia and homophobia. There are different relationship structures out their besides the heteronormative, cisnormative standard.
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK?
It’s hard work, but I feel like you would benefit from working on your self-esteem and not worrying about what others think. Such is the life of many a queer to have people who don’t understand exactly what their identity is, but again that’s not your problem. The most important thing right now is for you to do the introspective work of figuring out your own identity and experimenting with what makes you comfortable If you find you can’t do that in the confines of your current relationship, then that may spell the end of that situation. All you can do is talk openly with your partner and refrain from letting him paint your experience for you. It’s up to you to find your own voice and use it! <3
Trans/gender nonconforming Questionnaire :)
I am looking for (18-24) year old trans and gender non-conforming people that will be willing to take part in a brief questionnaire about their high school experiences.
Please click the link below:
I’ll also be going back and answering our backlog of questions as much as possible. <3
Alrighty everyone. Kai has relinquished his duties on here, but I still want to be a resource here as much as necessary! We still get questions everyday and the importance of a positive space on here is important!
I’ll be brainstorming ways to make this place livelier and even more supportive over the next few weeks.
So be on the look out and bear with me during this… *ahem* transition period! <3
P.S. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
Dear Fabulous Community Members, We are writing you today to ask for your support for one of our amazing community members, Tanya Walker. On October 1st, shortly after her 50th birthday, Tanya Walker was diagnosed with lung cancer. She is our community comra…
I am blessed to know Tanya Walker. Her work over the past 20 years in New York City has been vital. We must give to care after our own. This is how we care for each other.
We asked the Transgender Law Center whether new health care regulations help, hurt. or ignore trans people and their families.
