BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out
t's also kinda incorrect to group all those groups together like that. all genders outside of the traditional gender binary (i.e. agender, bigender, etc.) tend to fall under the separate umbrella of non-binary people, while trans people, trans men and women are just regular men and women like any other, except with slightly more complicated medical and social histories from being assigned the wrong sex at birth, and a rougher time of it for it.

Thank you for letting me know all this.  I’m definitely still learning the proper terms/phrasings and alike.  I’m also not that good with words at times as I’m a new mother to a teething 5 month old and I haven’t slept a solid night since she was born.

Speaking of my daughter, I’ve said a million times and my husband totally agrees with me that she’s our “daughter until she tells us otherwise.  I will embrace my child whatever she may chose to identify as in the future.”

non-binary people and trans men and women are born the gender that they are, it's a very intrinsic part of them, it's not a matter of 'one to another' (as implied by mtf/ftm) or just 'identifying with a different gender than the one they were born with'. a trans man, has always been a man and male, he was just medically assigned at birth a biological sex that was incorrect.

hey there friend, different anon, but just pointing out little like tidbits as politely as i can since you seem to genuinely care about trans issues, using transgender as a noun (i.e. 'the various transgenders') is considered to be pretty rude by most if not all, and is only really acceptable as an adjective (i.e. trans man / transgender woman), also 'mtf/ftm' and phrases like 'identifying as the gender i was born as' can be pretty off putting to a lot of trans and non-binary people.

Why do you try to be so aware? i mean like as in, idk, as a cis person what motivated you to care about it... idk... i'm not a good talker

I try to be aware of trans issues and rights because I feel everyone should be treated like a human being. To me, the various transgenders (agender, bigender, ftm/mtf) make as much sense as myself indentifying as the gender I was born as.  Who we are in our personalities, minds, souls, what-have-you… That’s what matters. I hate to see people being hurt and while I cannot do much in my day to day life as far as activism (I have to devote my time to working and caring for my daughter), I know I make a tiny difference being someone who cares and tries to help others understand when I can talk about it.
