I will respect these posters forever because they put a genderfluid/genderqueer/whatever person. That is normally so overlooked.
This campaign has a lot of awesome stuff going for it.
1) Transgender PoC make up about half the face of the campaign.
2) There is a genderqueer person (!!) and their caption respectfully uses “person” instead of man or woman.
3) Plus-sized trans* people for the win!
4) Finally a campaign explicitly for trans* people that emphasizes our deserving respect and courtesy.
5) The transgender women and men are included in “any woman/man” which is huge because it emphasizes that trans* women and men are women and men too; it leaves no room for argument and doesn’t turn it into a debate about genitals.
6) Emphasis on our being a part of the communities we live in. We aren’t any different than anyone else.
I really love the DC Transgender Respect campaign and I wish more states and cities would launch stuff like this!
^^^ All very good and true. I saw this floating around months ago, and I’m glad it’s back, because it is a great example of how to do a visibility campaign in a way that is really inclusive and honest and respectful.
Way to go DC.
Thoughts upon seeing this picture:
- Hey look there’s boobies
- I didn’t know eyes that blue could be found in nature
- Why don’t I have lips like that
- Jesus those shoulders
- WHY DON’T I HAVE LIPS LIKE THAT

She looks a lot like one of my exes. Like, their face/hair/smile are exactly the same. This person has a more dapper sense of style, though.
Preppy yet masculine women are so attractive. They fall into the category of “attractive archetypes that I couldn’t actually date due to personality differences.” Along with butch rednecks and innocent straight girls.
