refugerestrooms:

REFUGE restrooms is now live on the web at http://www.refugerestrooms.org. It is viewable on any browser.

REFUGE seeks to provide safe bathroom access for transgender, intersex, and other gender nonconformist individuals. A few months back the valuable safe2pee database stopped working. We present Refuge as a replacement. Starting with the existing database of listings from Safe2Pee, refuge makes the database easily searchable and mappable to allow folks to find the nearest safe restroom.

This is very much in its alpha stage and had a lot of growing to do. I started learning how to code not that long ago so I’m still learning how I can make the app better and better. The app is open source so please contribute to the project on github @
http://www.github.com/tkwidmer/refugerestrooms
stay tuned both here and on twitter @refugerestrooms.
this is so cool. yay!

some new stuff I’m working on, I get tons of anonymous messages like this every day and while this isn’t unique to women, the content of the messages and the frequency in which I get them are definitely related to my gender. I almost exclusively get them after I post selfies. The authority people feel they have to share their opinion on my appearance is something myself and many other girls online deal with daily.

baby owl. this is a childhood memory bank. every other weekend when i was very young i would visit my father’s girlfriend. she lived in a small house with a massive sky light above her bed and a wisteria growing along the front deck. i was given a drawer to store my belongings. books, colored paper, beach glass and other little things. including a version of this owl. most weekends i would help her clean the house, washing all of the tiny windows  on the set of french doors that divided the hallway from the living room. the owl is avon lotion bottle. roses roses. the lotion had turned and had an extra sweet rancid quality. i would hide in the corner and put tiny drops of it on my arm, smelling of rotten roses. part of the sadness of not talking to my family is knowing that i can not get those little things back. cute old school work, tiny drawings. pictures of the good times in my childhood. some like this mass produced bottle can be replaced, somewhat. the smell is the same, so it’s close. the best i can get. it lives on my bedside table. sometimes i smell it and open one of the polly pockets that live in the drawer below and pretend my family is different. here is to all of us that will spend this huge holiday alone.
