Living as an out and visible trans woman isn’t easy, but it’s one of the most rewarding choices I’ve ever made.
“We’re not freaks, we’re not perverts, we’re just people. I’m worried about my bathroom safety more than anyone else.”
I’m organizing a meet-up during this year’s NYFLC for the Autostraddle readers who are attending the conference!
The campaigns to get women on American and Canadian currency got me thinking: who are the women who have been on the money? What are their stories? Do they have great hair?
Really, I’m not sure why we feel like we have to keep on amplifying this fight. A solid two-thirds of trans women are on both sides of this so-called divide. We’re a part of both communities.
Not content with co-writing a book, being in Time Magazine and meeting people like Bill Clinton and Jennifer Lawrence, all by age 14, Jazz Jennings is now set to take over TV.
I want us to embark on some serious herstorical journeys through time, but I simply cannot condense herstory into one post, so I’m gonna condense everyone else’s pieces, books, movies, and projects about women’s history into one instead!

Proud was only 21 when she was murdered.
Autostraddle readers are cordially invited to the young feminist event of the year — and y’all have the luck to save big on registration.
These women changed feminism forever with their scholarship. Let’s vow to never forget their names.
From girl power to domestic violence, these are the ads screening during today’s big organized athletic event between two teams from I think the United States that have something in them for the rest of us. Mindy Kaling’s in one!
These shouldn’t be revelations. These should be the frameworks of our revolution.
Let’s talk about what it means to be an ally to the transgender community, and for trans people to be allies to one another.
Was I so far from the idea of trans in her head, that there was no way I could be “one of them”? Or did she refuse to make the association because there was something so wrong with being a trans woman that she could never be attracted to one?
This post/essay/etc will be an exploration into what justice for Leelah Alcorn might actually look like and some of what is needed to ‘fix society.’
SPOILER ALERT: Gender is (sort of) a myth.
In one way, it is incredible that something like this didn’t exist before. In another way, it is all too regrettable that something like this is so dearly needed.
I come bearing every ounce of truth I could muster about “false rape accusations” and the pitiful rape culture the myth of them exemplifies.
