God’s Girls really impressed me today
So I applied to be a God’s Girl last night and honestly the reaction I have gotten from the owners of the site and other models has been so so great and have been beyond supportive. That being said I got called out for refusing to demand an aplology from them due to fatphobia and transphobia in forums and their treatment of a few applicants, I understand a few of people have issues with their decisions in the past but I am extremely blown away with God’s Girls reaction actually treating me like any other model. I completely understand the demand to hold companies accountable but we also need to give companies space to grow with positive casting and diversity. I think the fight for trans inclusion needs to be focusing on what these sites can do to improve their treatment rather hold them responsible for past wrongs. Simply its a lot easier to try to sell a company on doing a trial shoot with a trans person rather then explaining to them in depth why there practices are wrong and transphobic and why its a big of enough issue they as a company should release a statement that would shift their entire view this is made even harder via a 140 character limit. I guess that’s where the performer identity goes over my activism because my goal end of the day is to make queer trans women having sex and our bodies more visible for other queer trans women. Like truly I’m really not in the business to change everyone’s mind to why transphobia is woven into the fabric of this industry I just want to get trans dyke sex to a more visible place so more trans women don’t suffer sexual dysphoria through never seeing a depiction of your sexuality on screen. I completely understand why people want to hold companies and sites to that standard but after dealing with it for over 2 months after vicious attacks I don’t have the energy to keep fighting when at times there can be other useful actions for getting the inclusion of sexual minorities within porn.
Something Thelma said on twitter that just was kind of a mindfuck
So I guess Lily Cade did a lesbian porn shoot using all male pronouns and presented as male and that’s rad and all but If your argument against trans women in porn is that lesbians don’t want to see men in their porn I think a trans woman reads as way less male than someone presenting as male using male pronouns.
Fucking Mystic premiere in Berlin!!!!
I’m very excited to tell everyone the film I have been working on for the last 8 months that I starred in, co-wrote and co-directed is going to have its world premiere in Berlin, Germany at the Pornfilmfestival Berlin next month. I couldn’t have dreamt of having this opportunity at 22 as a queer trans woman and am extremely grateful to have two of my best friends Aja Pop and Courtney Trouble to work on this project with for the last 8 months.
