jirafaardiente-deactivated20120 asked: I'm not sure if you you accept FAAB people on this tumblr, but I thought I would submit anyways! :)
I haven’t before, because I tend to write about women who self-identify as female, and I don’t want to disrespect anyone by identifying them as female, if that is not something they personally identify as. Like maybe someone is FAAB, but identifies as male or genderqueer, and I don’t want to put the “WOMAN” label on them if that’s not what they want to be…
However, I really love your submission, so I am gonna put it up anyways. Because regardless, I love having more trans visibility <3
The stress of finals and my current internship have been driving me bonkers, so I took a little hiatus from blogging but… I’m BACK! New inspirational ladies coming to your dashboard soon <3
