Transgender Day of Remembrance Writings: Memorializing, Listening, Taking Action

0

by Kate M.

trans flag

It’s Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day set aside to memorialize the people who have been killed over the last year because of anti-trans hatred and prejudice. If you’re interested in participating in a vigil, you can find one here.

In the meantime, we wanted to point you in the direction of a few of the best things we’ve read recently about Transgender Day of Remembrance, about people’s personal experiences, and/or about action you can take.

“TDOR 2014 Musings” from TransGriot
“…It is an opportunity for the trans community to raise awareness that we exist and these murders are happening. It gives an opportunity to partner with our allies, community build, grieve for our dead, and steel ourselves for the ongoing task to ensure that we do the necessary work to make the TDOR’s unnecessary.”

“Invisibility: Craving for Representation as a Trans Person of Color” from Black Girl Dangerous
“[My aunt] doesn’t know much about trans people – what she knows, she has learned from the media. First, she remembered that genital reconstruction surgery is expensive, and a privilege reserved for the upper classes. And second, she remembered that poor trans women of color are often assaulted and murdered, and that nobody seems to care. She was worried about me.”

 “Remembering Us When We’re Gone, Ignoring Us While We’re Here: Trans Women Deserve More” from Autostraddle
“Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to honor those women who came before us, those women murdered by colonial patriarchy. But it seems like more often than not, the queer community at large is content with just remembering. We only hear about trans women after their deaths.”  

The author of this piece also provides a great list of places to give your money if you want it to benefit trans women, as opposed to queer/LGBT causes at large.

“Transgender Day of Remembrance: Critique is Resistance; Resistance is Revolution” from Autostraddle
“I implore you to sit back and ask yourself how you contribute to the violence and injustice against trans women of color. How do you reinforce the marginalization and ostracism of myself and my sisters? It’s all fine that we become aware of our lives but we need more than for you to finally see that we are walking this Earth. We need you to hear us. We need you to sit quietly, take notes, and begin to conceptualize what a restructured system that is void of misogynist, racist, ableist, etc oppression would look like.”

Disappointingly Realistic Erotica:
Role Play Rendezvous

0

by Kate M.

Twirling his mustache – but not too hard, in case the spirit gum holding it in place gave out – Alan whirled on his boyfriend. He knew that he made an intimidating picture: the jacket he’d bought at the army surplus store was freshly pressed and fit him like a glove, showing off his broad, muscled chest.

“Tell me,” he rumbled, “Where you have hidden the microfilm.”

He glanced down at Isaac. He had tied the smaller man to a kitchen chair, deftly restraining each of his lanky limbs.

“Okay!” Isaac chirped.

Alan hesitated for a moment and then recovered.

“You seem to think that this will go easy for you,” he continued. “but unless you tell me where to find the microfilm, I will torture you, starting with this terrifying device!”

He brandished his Violet Wand menacingly, flicking it on so that Isaac could see the electricity running through it in the dim light. Sweet, submissive-to-the-core Isaac smiled up at him.

“I’ll tell you anything you want to know,” he insisted, beaming. “I just want to make you happy.”

***

“You said you were from Italy.”

“But I am, my beauteeful laydee!”

“You sound French.”

“Non. I am Eetalian!”

“You sound like Pepe le Pew.”

***

Yes, her gorgeous, creative partner had screen printed a t-shirt with the logo of a local pizzeria, had rung the doorbell, had stammered as though dumbstruck by Kim’s beauty when she had opened the door. Rhonda had been paying attention all those weeks ago, when Kim confided in her that she still fantasized about the goofy pizza-boy-meets-lonely-housewife scenarios from the VHS tapes she used to steal from under her brother’s bed. Rhonda had even made an effort to replicate the hokey dialogue: “You’re hungry? I have something you’ll want to eat,” she had declared, lifting her skirt to reveal a lacy pair of crotchless panties. Still, as they lay together, spent from an evening of passionate and athletic fantasy fulfillment, Kim had to admit something to herself: she kind of resented Rhonda for showing up with an empty pizza box.

***

Alice had worked all afternoon on her Damsel in Distress costume. She couldn’t believe how readily Lamar had agreed to role play with her. He’d  nodded along eagerly as she detailed her fantasy: a princess in a tower, a handsome prince who rescues her, kisses her sweetly, and then fucks her ass until she screams with delight. When she heard the door to Lamar’s studio open, she practically skipped into the living room to meet him, unable to wait to see her husband transformed into a fairy tale prince.

Lamar wore a long, elegant gown, opera gloves, and a dainty tiara.

After they’d laughed, gasped for breath, laughed harder, gotten themselves under control, lost control again when Lamar turned to Alice and murmured, “Milady,” howled with laughter until Alice had a coughing fit and had to get a glass of water, and settled finally into a comfortable silence punctuated only by the occasional giggle, Alice turned to her husband.

“Rock paper scissors for who gets to go first?”

***

“What I really want is to role play that I’m going to a sex store and you’re my hot salesperson.”

“I have a friend who works at The Pleasure Chest! I’ll talk to her and get some ideas.”

Later that day:

“I’m interested in that vibrator… but I’m hoping that you’ll show me how to use it.”

“Sure! Here’s a schedule for our free workshop series!”

Fisting: a Testimonial

0

by Kate M.

fisting magic

There is absolutely nothing in the world that is as shockingly intimate as having your hand enclosed in someone’s body. The time it takes to work it in – finger by finger, slowly stretching, cajoling their body into opening up for you – it moves in an almost alternate reality. Hours become minutes, become hours. Your focus tightens in on just your hand – the tissue tight around your knuckles, the impossible heat of their body like a small sun around your fist. Your world is their breath, their heartbeat pounding against the tip of your fingers. They breathe at that one ripe, right moment, and your hand finds its way a millimeter further into them. And the tiny movements of your hand feel like earthquakes to your lover; the flex of your thumb rocks against their spots and tremors shake through their body. Their hand reaches towards you, trying to close the circuit, wrapping around your wrist. And then you’re there – your hand trapped by every shudder and convulsion, your ears ringing with their screams and moans, your heart racing with theirs, and what started out as a slow exploration becomes a watershed moment between two people who are open and intimate and bound together by nothing more than a single hand.
