That awkward moment when….
A truck full of rednecks mistake me for a cis gendered female.
I live fairly close to a gas station that I like to go to now and then for a slushy drink. Well, today as I am walking into the station parking lot there is one of those crazy looking jacked up trucks covered in mud, accompanied with three shirtless boys in the back and another at the gas pump, pumping gas into the truck.
I was wearing this exact outfit above and as I walked through the parking lot they whistled at me and one boy said something to the effect of “hey beautiful lady, wanna go for a ride in my truck!” I pretended to not hear a thing and the boy pumping gas turned at the other boy who called me beautiful and said “Your truck! I don’t think so!” then turned back to me and said “don’t listen to him sunshine, this hot rod is all mine and your welcome in it anytime!” ….
At this point I wanted to vomit over the poor ass attempt at getting me to hang out with them, but at the same time I was laughing on the inside at the fact that they really thought I was a cis gendered female. However, I said nothing and continued to pretend I didn’t hear them.
I walked into the store, got my slushy and walked back out into the parking lot.
At this point, the boys had moved the truck from the gas pump and into one of the parking spaces, basically they were waiting for me to walk back out of the store.
Again, I pretended to not even notice them, until the same boy in the back of the truck who called me beautiful said “Hey purple hair! I didn’t want to take you out anyways, you’ve got the smallest titts I’ve ever seen!” of course all the boys start laughing.
Naturally, I stopped, turned around and shouted “Hey ass hole!” Then as there laughter turned into silence, I lifted my shirt all the way up past my nipples and shouted “My tits are so small because I don’t have any! Yeah, that’s right! I don’t have a vagina either in case you were wondering. Try explaining that to your little fuck buddies! You have the hots for a guy! Gerk face!”
All the guys in the back of the truck started laughing at their friend and there were also a few people in the parking lot I could hear laughing about the situation.
I put my shirt down, turned back around and decided to stroll into the fast food place next door to the gas station. I didn’t want to walk home just yet because I didn’t want these guys to follow me. I ordered some fries and by the time I got my fries they had already left, so I went back home.
Not only was the situation quite hilarious, but I hope the boys in that crappy truck lay in their beds tonight wide awake wondering what the hell happened. I know every one of them mistook me for a cis gendered female, and that’s fine by me. Maybe the next time they see a cute little thing walking across the parking lot, they will think twice before harassing them with rude gestures and dangerous offers to go for a ride in their dumb truck.

This Baby Is The First In British Columbia To Have 3 Parents Listed On Her Birth Certificate
A Vancouver newborn has become the first child in British Columbia, Canada, to have three parents listed on an official birth certificate.
Della Wolf Kangro Wiley Richards is the 3-month-old daughter of a married lesbian couple and their male friend. British Columbia’s Family Law Act,which went into effect in March 2013, makes their unique situation possible. The measure allows a child to have three or more legal parents, as long as such a situation is in the best interest of the child.
The three parents finalized baby Della’s birth certificate last week, making them the first family to go through the process required by the new law.
Danielle Wiley and her wife, Anna Richards, told media outlets that they wanted to get pregnant butdidn’t want to have an anonymous donor act as their child’s father.
“We wanted our kids to know where they came from biologically and actually liked the idea of having an extended family,” Richards told Canada’s National Post. “It didn’t threaten us to have another person’s involvement so long as it was the right person.”
The couple approached Richards’ longtime friend, Shawn Kangro, who agreed to not only be their donor but also a father figure to the child.
Before Della was conceived, the three drafted a contract outlining how they wanted their family to work. (According to the Family Law Act,such written contracts must be drawn up before conception.) They agreed that Wiley and Richards would have custody of the child and would be financially responsible for him or her. Kangro would be a legal guardian with rights to access.
After they had hammered out all the finer details, Wiley became pregnant. Speaking to the CBC, she said they used the “homestyle” method of conception.
The Family Law Act is meant to place the safety and needs of a child above all else.For those who wish to conceive via assisted reproduction, the law offers legal means to give the child the best family environment possible.
"The really big shift in the Family Law Act in terms of parents, is how you decide who’s a parent," writes self-proclaimed "queer feminist" lawyer barbara findlay, who spells her name without capital letters. “In old days, we looked at biology and genetic connections. And that’s no longer true. We now look at the intention of the parties who are contributing to the creation of the child, and intend to raise the child. And that’s a really, really big shift.”
This could be great news for so many people, including polyamorous people! I knew they were changing the laws but I had no idea it was already put into effect. <3

Why don’t most superheroines look like this?
Because most comic books are drawn by men.
Reblogging for artistic reference.
Yes. Artistic reference is why I am reblogging this.
This is why I hate it when people draw the likes of Wonder Woman or Power Girl or She-Hulk without making them muscular because ‘that’s not feminine’. Because clearly, you know, it bloody well is.
Totally reblogging for the artistic reference. Definitely.
We had too… Happy Kissing Day! From PolySpider, Glowbug and Enigma
