“In my early twenties, I was dating a trans woman
who in some ways still had a male bodywhose body I projected maleness and masculinity onto because of my own prejudice. I was very attracted to her, and she was absolutely a woman, but part of me was like if I’m attracted to this anatomically male body, does that mean that I could be interested in men?using her in a really creepy way as an avatar of maleness and masculinity, completely contradicting what I just said. I don’t want this to be interpreted as I dated a trans woman so I could be into men, but I feel that there’s a blurriness that happens with trans peoplethat’s exactly what I’m saying and it’s fucked up. For some people that blurtheir prejudice opens things upbutts up against reality and calls thingsthe tip of the iceberg regarding their own gender issues into question, things that could otherwise be rigid identitiesthey should talk to a therapist about instead of using trans people as an objectified representation of their own internalized binarist gender issues.”
I FUCKING HATE ARIEL SCHRAG.
to talk about how trans people open things up and call things into question and to simultaneously talk about people being “anatomically male”?!?!
There, I fixed that for you, Ariel.
MCALC the first Gender Neutral Menstruation Calculator.
Mcalc started off as an idea to create a menstruation calculator app that could be used by anyone regardless of their gender, this way our app keeps the trans* and genderqueer community in mind so they can enjoy the features without being constantly misgendered (as with other apps).
Our new app is still in BETA so we appreciate any feedback you can give us at email@example.com, we try to solve as many bugs as possible in as little time as we can so please, let us know if anything is not working properly.
What is Mcalc?
Mcalc is a new menstruation calculator app, it tracks your period and keeps you updated on your current status and any upcoming important events of your menstrual cycle
How does it work?
Simple! just provide the app with some basic information about you and your cycle, Mcalc will calculate the rest, taking your personal context into consideration. Afterwards you can set alarms and even log relevant events.
What features does it have?
-Neutrality Guaranteed: We understand that sex and gender identity are not the same, because of this, we designed our app so it can be used by almost everyone. Mcalc is 100% gender neutral and it won’t assume anything from you while using it.
-Notifications: Mcalc will keep you updated on the important dates of your menstrual cycle, it’s built in alarm system will allow you to set notifications you care about.
-Adaptation: We all have different needs, and Mcalc can suit them accordingly, it will only display the information relevant to your purposes and won’t nag you with irrelevant data. Using Mcalc on “sex mode” will help you reduce your risks of getting pregnant when having sex for fun, while setting it on “baby mode” will help you increase your chances of getting pregnant when planning one.
-Tracking: Mcalc lets you keep a log of your activity for later reference, it’s as simple as tapping a date in our calendar and tick the events that happened that day to save them for further reference.
-Information: Discover new things about menstrual cycles by using Mcalc’s informative pages.

Guys we worked like hell to get this to be a thing, we are just a bunch of 20 something year old nerdy gay guys who want to do something cool for the LGBT community tech-wise, so please even if you are not gonna download it at least reblog it, we don’t have any investors on this so we rely on mere tumblr and social media support.
Please share! all the earnings will go to fund new sexpedia articles and pay our collaborators in this project.
And in that moment, everybody in the theater let out a huge sigh of relief as they realized what had just happened; for the first time in forever there was no forced romance between the protagonists in an action movie.
The heavens finally answered the prayers of the people.
You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”
As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.
As a feminist ally*
