Thin privilege is being able to walk into Olympic Stadium in an outfit that makes you feel part of the team, instead of being forced to wear the only outfit that fits because Ralph Lauren won’t make the outfit you want to be wearing in your size.
“Before heading to NY for the P&G announcement, I had a photo shoot. We were supposed to wear white button up shirts. The woman’s shirts that were provided were too small in the back and the shoulders. My only option was wearing a man’s shirt. It was very ill fitting and I was feeling pretty self conscious about it. I hate not being able to wear a majority of woman’s clothing. When I got to NY they had a different man’s shirt for me to wear that was much better looking. I rolled the sleeves up and tried to look as feminine as possible. My mother was the only mother there who hadn’t a jacket like the other moms because there wasn’t one provided in her size.” - Sarah Robles, Team USA Olympian

I’m not sure if this is allowed, but can we get a signal boost for a graphic novel starring a kick ass Latina superhero? The pics are cool enough reason to donate to her kickstarter (ends July 28th) and they’re just shy of their goal.
I’ve just seen the trailer for The Bourne Legacy.
That movie is totally Hawkeye’s origin story.

Yay! I’m not the only one thinking this!
TRANS COUCHSURFING NETWORK - PLEASE REBLOG/SIGNAL BOOST!
Hi! I just started a tumblr called the Transgender Couchsurfing Network. After seeing dozens of posts come across my dash about displaced or homeless trans people needing places to crash, I decided that there had to be a way to organize these posts somehow, and to put those in need in contact with those willing to lend a hand. If you’re trans and need a place to stay, or if you have a couch or floor or spare bedroom available for someone in need, I urge you to reblog this post, follow the blog, and get the word out. Everything is still under heavy construction, but the more people that see and hear about this blog, the more people will be able to benefit from it! I know that there are so many people here on tumblr who are in need of a place to stay for a night or two, and I also know how many amazing, wonderful people would be willing to host someone and help out a trans person in need. We all know what a huge problem unemployment and homelessness are for trans people (especially TPOC and trans women) — even a place to stay for a night can make the biggest difference! So PLEASE, even if you can’t offer up your couch, REBLOG AND SIGNAL BOOST.
