Reminder than “trans” and “man”/”woman” are separate words.
✗ - Transwoman
✗ - Transman
✓ - Trans woman
✓ - Trans man
You don’t say “blackwomen” or “tallmen.” Adjectives shouldn’t be attached to their nouns. Trans women and trans men are still women and men and by attaching the adjective to try and make a new word, you are othering them and making it appear as though they are “not really men/women.”
Some modern dryads I did between commissions ! Tree ladies are so much fun to draw.
Here are Oak, Willow, Birch tree, Pine and Cherry tree.
While I was humoring that anon I did a Interpals scum roundup
Never forget fellow Asians, we are nothing but an accessory to these fucks
I think we should make a game of using stock photo titles as drawing prompts

A Texas school district just became one of the safest in the nation as teachers are now armed and trained to handle school shootings.
I think it’s pretty certain that a potential shooter would not pick this school
You assume shooters go around picking schools based on rational criteria. Perhaps some do. But others seem to pick the school they attend based on no logical criteria such as risk or reward, they’re suicidal and intend to die killing as many acquaintances as possible. In that case, armed staff will be little deterrent. Hopefully the armed staff will put a quicker end to their rampage. Hopefully in addition to being armed they’re being trained (The article lists training but doesn’t say if that goes beyond mere gun use) in what to do with an active shooter.
But this reeks of a publicity stunt with political motives. It reads, in part thanks to its sources, as a gun nut fantasy designed to show those liberal idjits how good and safe guns are and how they make the world a safer place. Little different from those scum walking around Target with rifles just to remind people it’s their right. The quality of people who pull such stunts is more likely to get a student threatened or shot than to aid in an actual emergency.
I don’t think that will happen. I think nothing will happen. Gun fanatics will get to cheer and brag, anti-gun fanatics will lament the state of the world, and nothing will change. The people on both extremes of the issue seem to forget that there’s a middle ground at all, and that the middle ground is inevitably uneventful.

I rendered Milo Manara’s Spider-Woman pose in 3D.
And does that suck?
But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.
And that’s not the same for fat folk.
When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.
And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.
That’s thin privilege."
the thing that always comes to me about the concept of Transtrending is … who even Cares? so what if someone turns out to be happier being cis after trying out different pronouns, different ways of thinking about them selfs or their genders? so what? who did they hurt? if…
“The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not true. A lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.”- Laverne Cox
I’m grossed out by the kind of stuff tumblr does to its users over an extended period of time
Grammar and punctuation is completely lost on some people, to the point where their posts are unreadable and irritating
And tumblr fosters and feeds this incredible narcissism and need to impress people- people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
