So now I want to be unequivocal in my words: I believe that transgender people, including those who have transitioned, are living out real, authentic lives. Those lives should be celebrated, not questioned. Their health care decisions should be theirs and theirs alone to make. And what I wrote decades ago does not reflect what we know today as we move away from only the binary boxes of “masculine” or “feminine” and begin to live along the full human continuum of identity and expression.
I’m grateful for this opportunity to say that I’m sorry and sad if any words floating out there from the past seem to suggest anything other than support, past and present. As feminists know, power over our own minds and bodies comes first.
Gloria Steinem, apologizing on October 2nd, 2013 for her role in trans-exclusionary feminism in the 1970’s and 80’s, which included writing that trans people “surgically mutilate their own bodies” to confirm to patriarchal standards.
It’s a step in the right direction. (via socialistexan)

"Bruh I just went to sephora and got the sickest shade of eyeshadow"
