All Things BEAUTIFUL, FREE...
FtM transgender man. I've carved my own pathway through learning life's teachings.
Nomadic spirit harboring the innocent heart of a lost child, my awareness is keen, humor ridiculous, and I marvel in the exquisite tenderness of the delicate balance in it all. Fluffy, cuddly, funny creatures and gentle humans melt me. I understand the meaning of true love, and these knowing arms posess a big, squishy hug for all who have suffered along the way.
Beauty affects me deepest within its raw, unfiltered state. I hunger to wrap my mind and heart around the vastness of the real world with my own hands, and to share my journey of discovery with an unsuspecting public.

Each morning, like clockwork, they board the subway, off to begin their daily routine amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.
But these aren’t just any daily commuters. These are stray dogs who live in the outskirts of Moscow Russia and commute on the underground trains to and from the city centre in search of food scraps.
Then after a hard day scavenging and begging on the streets, they hop back on the train and return to the suburbs where they spend the night.
Experts studying the dogs, who usually choose the quietest carriages at the front and back of the train, say they even work together to make sure they get off at the right stop – after learning to judge the length of time they need to spend on the train.
Scientists believe this phenomenon began after the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, and Russia’s new capitalists moved industrial complexes from the city centre to the suburbs.
Dr Andrei Poiarkov, of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, said: “These complexes were used by homeless dogs as shelters, so the dogs had to move together with their houses. Because the best scavenging for food is in the city centre, the dogs had to learn how to travel on the subway – to get to the centre in the morning, then back home in the evening, just like people.”
Dr Poiarkov told how the dogs like to play during their daily commute. He said: “They jump on the train seconds before the doors shut, risking their tails getting jammed. They do it for fun. And sometimes they fall asleep and get off at the wrong stop.”
The dogs have also amazingly learned to use traffic lights to cross the road safely, said Dr Poiarkov. And they use cunning tactics to obtain tasty morsels of shawarma, a kebab-like snack popular in Moscow.
With children the dogs “play cute” by putting their heads on youngsters’ knees and staring pleadingly into their eyes to win sympathy – and scraps.
Dr Poiarkov added: “Dogs are surprisingly good psychologists.”
This is just perfect
Joneka, a teen girl of color, had to go 78 pages into her copy of Teen Vogue to find a girl who looks like her.
Her message to the magazine: #keepitreal
I absolutely hate TeenVogue. For this reason, and for reasons that they pretty much promote fat hate and anorexia. They published where a teenage guy supposedly said “I think it’s sexy to see bones.” Um I’m sorry… that shit is dangerous.
But this definitely adds to why I refuse to have anything to do with this magazine. They should put pictures of ALL girls, to represent the fact that all girls look different. And it doesn’t matter what race you are, or what size you are. All girls are beautiful.
