buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:

The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:

As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”

At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!

A housemate asked me about identities in the queer community, and we got to a point where she asked me about when does the cisfemale identity get erased, since I was saying how not every woman has a vagina/etc and not every man has a penis/etc, it came to the feminist theory point “What is a woman?”. Will there be a woman/man/intersex sex existence with our queer identities? W hat would happen if we erased sex; would gender be enough in our world? But then again we need the binary identities in sex and gender to build on our queer identities.

Just some thoughts in my brain. Thoughts from y’all? Resource suggestions?

This pioneering collection of previously unpublished articles on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender language combines queer theory and feminist theory with the latest thinking on language and gender. The book expands the field well beyond the study of “gay slang” to consider gay dialects (such as Polari in England), early modern discourse on gay practices, and late twentieth-century descriptions of homosexuality. These essays examine the conversational patterns of queer speakers in a wide variety of settings, from women’s friendship groups to university rap groups and electronic mail postings.Taking a global—rather than regional—approach, the contributors herein study the language usage of sexually liminal communities in a variety of linguistic and cultural contexts, such as lesbian speakers of American Sign Language, Japanese gay male couples, Hindi-speaking hijras (eunuchs) in North India, Hausa-speaking 'yan daudu (feminine men) in Nigeria, and French and Yiddish gay groups. The most accessible and diverse collection of its kind, Queerly Phrased: Language, Gender, and Sexuality sets a new standard in the study of language’s impact on the construction of sexuality.

what I really don’t understand is the argument that SJWs “look for problems” that “aren’t there” on purpose it’s like?? ah yes, I enjoy feeling angry seeing misrepresentation and bigotry in my favourite tv shows, I am clearly doing this on purpose because there’s nothing I like more than a heavy laden sense of frustration whilst watching my tv shows
