[sighs and looks at camera like it’s the office]
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS
"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"
that is amazing
This is fucking beautiful. I love the history and culture of Russia, but they are severely out of line on a lot of things. This is the most prevalent of them.

This, literally, is dead on exactly how I feel, and probably a lot of you guys too.
if you ever wonder why I’m surprised when you call me your friend or when you say you want to hang out or when you say you miss me
It’s sad some people think like this I want to give them a hug
This happens to me all the time…
Same. And I always feel bad cuz it’s not their fault
I can’t begin to say how much trouble this feeling has caused me. As a kid I had trouble keeping people around me. Someone new would come along and suddenly I was yesterday’s news. Only a small handful of people actually stayed with me, and to them I am grateful, but even they couldn’t keep this away.
I eventually became so accustomed to people just dropping me when someone new came along that I began to believe that that was how things were supposed to go. I was only meant to be people’s temporary entertainment until they found the person they really wanted to be friends with. I thought that going from one person to another when the last one ditched me in order to fulfill my need for attention, a basic human need, was alright, no matter how much it hurt me. After all, they were happy, and what kind of friend would I be to distract them from it?
I thought that this was how things were meant to be, and so I learned to bottle it all in, to never speak up about it. I was the extra. They deserved their happiness. I could manage by scavenging for it. They were my friends. Why would I interfere with their happiness with my own, insignificant little problems?
I managed to get over it eventually. Slowly, painfully, through an event that cost me several friends (?) and took over a year to get over completely, but I manged to make it through.

Dragon Ball is a national treasure.
imagine if bronies had a huge say in the cartoon industry and like, shows like my little pony but with openly sexual ponies were being produced. thats what miyazaki is talking about when he says the anime industry is full of otaku. miyazaki dedicated his life to making heartwarming anime films for little kids, the anime industry is full of lolicons, do u expect him to be happy about that
Why I love Miyazaki tbh
