Although most boys figure out how to bring themselves to orgasm by age thirteen, half of girls do not have their first orgasms until their late teens, twenties, or beyond. Teenage girls widely agree that they get the message loud and clear that masturbation is something boys do, but girls do not, cannot, or should not. The cultural focus on intercourse tells young women to expect they will begin to experience sexual pleasure once they have sex with a man (whether or not they are even interested in sex with men). Nearly all teen boys, on the other hand, experience sexual pleasure long before they get their hands—or other body parts—into a partner’s pants. Despite the massive advances in women’s equality, young women’s sexuality is stuck in a surprising paradox. Young women are sold provocative clothes but are not taught where to find their own clitoris. Many girls give their boyfriends oral sex, but are too uncomfortable with their own bodies to allow the guys to return the favor. It is still a radical act to say that women need and deserve access to information about their own sexual pleasure—not just about the risks and negative consequences of sex. — (via compulsives)

5 months post op with dr. garramone
You look great! Congratulations!
Anyone remember that post I made however long ago about my younger cousins hitting puberty and thus me feeling very inadequate because they’re going to be taller/fitter than I am without even trying and despite being five years younger? No? Okay that’s fine because there are going to be more because they’re visiting soon. Don’t get me wrong I love them and I’m so proud of my family (give or take a few moments) for how they’ve handled my transition and I can’t wait to interact with them as myself ect. But ugh. Just ugh. I’m not looking forward to how much I’m going to wish I looked like a 15 year-old spoiled American boy.
1 year and a half post op
Tumblr Social Justice in a nutshell.
I fixed it
what makes me laugh is that the op probably spent more time drawing this in mspaint than it would have taken them to simply google whatever it was that upset them that prompted them to make this comic.
