The absence of no does not mean yes. The best way to get enthusiastic consent is to ask!

Click here for sexual assault resources in Massachusetts.

This is cute, but I wish these said “all people” because sex isn’t only between two people!

Oh, and by the way, today marks the first day of sexual assault awareness month. Keep an eye out for events in your area!

report from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey conducted by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality, found that transgender people faced double the rate of unemployment of the general population, with 63 percent of the transgender people surveyed reporting they experienced a serious act of discrimination that majorly affected their ability to sustain themselves. These numbers are even worse for trans people of color, especially trans women of color, the deaths of whom have been deemed a “state of emergency.” 

Trans women have been saddled with the responsibility of taking on trans-exclusionary feminists for far too long—but it’s not their issue to deal with alone.

Damn right

(via sexedquestions)

I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn’t vote for the President. And I’m here to tell you that Obamacare works. I’m living proof.

I’m a chemotherapy patient, and was previously paying $428 a month for my health coverage. I was not thrilled when it was cancelled.

Then I submitted an application at HealthCare.gov. I looked at my options. And I signed up for a plan for $62 a month.

It’s the best health care I have ever had.

So right now, here’s what I want to tell anyone who still needs health insurance, or knows someone who does:

Sign up. Follow the instructions on the website. Apply, and look at your options. You still have time, and take it from me: This is something you want to do.

I wrote a letter to President Obama this past February to tell him about my experience with the Health Insurance Marketplace. I hoped he’d read it, and he did.

I may not be a supporter of the President. But now, I get mad when I see Obamacare dragged through the mud on television.

And even though I regularly tune in to conservative pundits, I’d like to tell them they’re getting it wrong. Obamacare works.

So one more time: If you still need health insurance, you have just three days to get it. Do what I did. Go to HealthCare.gov, submit an application, and pick a plan that works for you.

It just might change your life.

Did you know today is officially Back Up Your Birth Control Day?! This year is one that will go down in history because Emergency Contraceptive is now even easier to get in a drug store!
And we’ve got all the details for you in today’s Fact Friday!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently decided that 3 kinds of Emergency Contraceptive Pills can be sold on store shelves without any age restrictions. These include Plan B One-Step® and the generic versions Next Choice and My Way.
Just to refresh your memory, emergency contraceptive is a back-up method of birth control that can prevent pregnancy, even after someone has had unprotected vaginal sex. Someone might need to use it if their condom broke, they didn’t use a condom, or they didn’t use their birth control method correctly. Emergency contraception works within 5 days of unprotected sex, but is more effective the sooner you take it.
Labels for the generic pills will still say that the product is for use only by women ages 17 and older, but people will not need to show proof of age in order to buy any of the brands. And both men and women can purchase emergency contraceptive in stores!
The cost for emergency contraception pills can still run about $40-$50. Experts say that the new rules should reduce the price by about $7.
When women go to their health care provider, like Planned Parenthood, they can also ask to get emergency contraceptive for future use, that way they have it if they ever need it.

This is good news for any AFAB person! Now, let’s cross our fingers that one day the age restriction will be removed. Note that not all emergency contraception options work the same for all bodies. In particular, Plan B becomes less effective for people with a BMI (we know, BMI is not great) of 26 or higher. Ella is effective up to a BMI of 35, and the Copper T IUD is effective for people of all weights.
