Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Major shifts have been brewing in video games and trans women are at the forefront of them. And these shifts have happened concurrently with shifts in cultural trans narratives and literature.
The visibility and work of trans women like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox, the publication of books like Imogen Binnie’s Nevada and Casey Plett’s A Safe Girl to Love and the proliferation of nontraditional trans women’s communities online to me signals a loosening of the norms of transness. It’s increasingly taken for granted that you can be trans and be queer, that you can be trans and vocal about it, that you can be trans and not have known since you were a little kid. I don’t want to mischaracterize things here, because trans women’s bodies and lives are still overwhelmingly governed by material, structural oppressions. But also, there has been some real, significant change in community narratives around gender and transness, and that matters.
Like, last month I was at the Writing Trans Genres Conference in Winnipeg. Just the fact that that was a thing, that we had a whole conference of people discussing trans people’s literature and sharing their work, is a big deal. And it made me realize that there are a lot of parallels between trans people’s literature and trans games: in both cases trans authors are both rejecting traditional literary forms and appropriating them, using them to tell new kinds of stories. Importantly, both trans literature and trans games represent a breaking out of the genre of memoir, to which trans people have been mostly confined by traditional publishing. This is a big deal because memoir is fundamentally outsider-oriented: it’s about explaining how weird and gross and sexy it is to be a trans person to a cisgender audience. But more and more trans authors are forming our own publishers, or using the internet to get around gatekeepers entirely and release interactive works directly to our communities—Merrit Kopas, Transwomen and the New Hypertext (via dasunheimlichemaneuver)
Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.
