Transgender woman arrested for wearing sheer top, jailed with men. →
Ashley Del Valle is a transgender woman from New York who was arrested in Georgia for indecent exposure after she allegedly showed her breasts, but then was housed in an all-male jail.
You arrest her because her top is too sheer and shows her nipples, something that is only a crime for women.
And then you jail her as a man.
it’s almost like there is a matrix of power relations that will insist on punishing her no matter what.
but that can’t be.

What the fuck is wrong with this world.
"I see when men love women. They give them but a little of their lives. But women when they love give everything."
"You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free."
"It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit."

Golden Tortoise Beetle.
In spring and summer, the beetles earn their name when they turn the colour of brilliant liquid gold. But capture one and the gold vanishes and the beetle becomes dirt brown. Here’s why: the colour is produced by an optical illusion; the outer cuticle is transparent and reflects light through a layer of liquid over the next layer of cuticle. The beetles change colour depending on the availability of the liquid layer. In the fall and winter, the beetles become less lustrous and are more orange and bronze with flashes of iridescent colour. If you try and collect the beetle for an insect collection, the beetle soon turns dark brown as is dries, loosing the golden colour.

This is obviously not my (white) experience to share. But the more I travel the more my eyes are opened to the absolute truth in everything that this girl is saying. She deserves shares and support because she’s speaking the silenced truth. LISTEN UP BITCHES. We’re all accountable.
If you can look at this and say the media is not controlled by people who want to keep you docile and ignorant, I don’t know what else to tell you.
Interesting that it was my fate to be born here in Warville Stupidtown.
