It is extremely important that cis people use their privilege to amplify protest against the bill because the government refuses to listen to trans people!
Meanwhile, here are some smaller but equally important things that allies can do!
1) Respect pronouns - It's more polite to ask which pronouns a person uses, rather than to assume and misgender a person
2) Language is key - There are many myths and misconceptions about what being transgender means.Take your time and do research
3) Be empathetic
4) Unless, a transperson explicitly says it's okay to tell others, don't out them.
5) Don't fetishize transgender people
6) Do not misgender and deadname (the act of using a transgender person's birth name instead of their chosen name)
7) Educate yourself—and others!

He whom treats a woman as a man should shall be the key to her heart. Two people can meet at the wrong time and be right for each other. Fate makes the decisions. People making a choice to not see the love between them are only fooling themselves. Stefani and Bradley not only fell in love but read each other like a novel. One thing after another led to them falling in love even more than either thought was possible. You can never love someone too much because when the heart isn't afraid to let love in, love is immortal. Take a careful look at this photo here. Bradley is holding on to Stefani with both hands. His left hand is gripping her leather jacket . The right palm of his hand is resting on her leather jacket. She is looking at him like a cupid struck her. Lets call that cupid Luck. Mr. Luck flew to where he was needed. He saw a scene in front of him. For a brief second, he gathered his thoughts. He questioned, should he or shouldn't he? Cupid Luck decided not to intervene because with or without him, Stefani and Bradley were a match made in heaven. Mr. Luck didn't need to do anything. They were ahead of him. Bradley's facial expression was warmhearted. He was taken by her. His world had Stefani in it. They were melting. Another detail I noticed is Stefani clutching on to her leather jacket. As a very observant person, I look at everything that shows they're in love. Body language is a big one here. Both were facing inwards and Stefani looked like she was ready to leap into his arms at any given second. I can't stress enough how in love they are. That's not subjective. Love isn't an acting tool. I don't see signs of make pretend. One of the things I love about them is their devotion to each other. You can't fake that (not even a little or a lot). They're beyond perfection. Take love while you can before it's too late. Don't let it slip away when the time is now. Stefani and Bradley had hope during the lost years. The impossible is possible. Bradga was always possible. They've come so far. Love is patient & kind.❤❤ #ladygaga#bradleycooper#astarisborn#oscars2019#grammys2019#bradga#hausofgaga#goldenglobes#metgala#enigma#lasvegas#ally#allymaine#LG6
This community that we are so proud to be apart of continues to be vile & disgustingly toxic to a point where I’m ashamed to be apart of it. -
People often ask why our community is so frowned upon, well this is one of the reasons. Imagine harassing a 15 year old girl just cuz she popped off on a pro player who she rightfully beat in a tournament to a point of driving her off social media & quitting pro smash?
The fact that other pro players insinuated on the drama and enabled the toxicity is at this point expected when it shouldn’t be. -
We wonder why newbies & rookie smash players are so hesitant to fit in, why? Because we praise these “Top Elitist Smashers” and refuse to open up to the casual base which leads to this border of toxicity that separates the smash community. They really made her quit bruh, I’m shocked. (If you wanna learn more, search it up) 🤕

💚We don’t have to meditate for an hour... a couple minutes of mindfulness can reset our whole day 💚
Happy Full Moon in Capricorn & Partial Solar Eclipse. We are cosmically closing cycles & we are so conditioned to avoid feeling, to avoid feelings of loss, failure, disappointment.... it is hard to see that we those also come, beginning.
💚Today allow yourself to feel, and to find ways to lift your spirit in knowing that you are your best ally. If you need some shaking medicine to release please go into my recent movement post and follow instructions for shaking medicine. .

Recently a female friend told me she was walking down the street holding her girlfriend’s hand and people were shouting horrible things at them. Not only was she upset, she was genuinely afraid. As a cisgendered, heterosexual woman, I can’t imagine this kind of discrimination or hatred directed at me or my relationship.
These stories make me so mad and after having a lot of conversations about it at acro training, I’ve realized that just because I’m not a jerk that doesn’t mean I’m a good ally. Here are some of the ways I am going to try to be a better ally. What are some more ways that I can help support the LGBTQ+ people in my life? Things that you do?
1. Educate. Gender is complex and not binary. Don’t expect people to fit into the meaningless categories we socially constructed.
2. Ask for, and use people’s pronouns. Also offering mine to normalize this practice: she/her/hers
3. Changing my language to be more inclusive: not using “guys”. 4. Supporting exclusionary spaces: Understanding the need to develop spaces where only LGBTQ+ people are welcome, and respecting the fact that these don’t include me.
5. Treating everyone with kindness and respect, and standing up for people when I see, or overhear them being mistreated. #assignment3 AcroAndSocialJustice #Ally#ActingAsAnAlly#AcroAndSocialJusticeTT2019#SuperHeroCircusAcademy#twohigh#taosnewmexico
