India’s Supreme Court has recognised transgender people as a third gender, in a landmark ruling.
"It is the right of every human being to choose their gender," it said in granting rights to those who identify themselves as neither male nor female. It ordered the government to provide transgender people with quotas in jobs and education in line with other minorities, as well as key amenities.
According to one estimate, India has about two million transgender people.
Campaigners say they live on the fringes of society, often in poverty, ostracised because of their gender identity. Most make a living by singing and dancing or by begging and prostitution. Rights groups say they often face huge discrimination and that sometimes hospitals refuse to admit them.
They have been forced to choose either male or female as their gender in most public spheres.
"Recognition of transgenders as a third gender is not a social or medical issue but a human rights issue," Justice KS Radhakrishnan, who headed the two-judge Supreme Court bench, said in his ruling on Tuesday.
In 2009, India’s Election Commission took a first step by allowing transgenders to choose their gender as “other” on ballot forms.
But India is not the first country to recognise a third gender. Nepal recognised a third gender as early as in 2007 when the Supreme Court ordered the government to scrap all laws that discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. And last year, Bangladesh also recognised a third gender.

Tuesday’s ruling comes after the Supreme Court’s decision in December which criminalised gay sex by reversing a landmark 2009 Delhi High Court order which had decriminalised homosexual acts.
According to a 153-year-old colonial-era law - Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code - a same-sex relationship is an “unnatural offence” and punishable by a 10-year jail term.
Legal experts say Tuesday’s judgement puts transgender people in a strange situation: on the one hand, they are now legally recognised and protected under the Constitution, but on the other hand they may be breaking the law if they have consensual gay sex. (x)

It’s Friday so time for a little bit of silly. I try to keep this blog for my art but occasionally we have to shake things up. Besides, what’s more artistic than Mikkelsen’s face? XD

This was a project I coordinated as a birthday gift to my sister, who happens to love sloths and coincidentally Mads Mikkelsen. I did the only logical thing and combined them with the help of many wonderful friends who pitched in. The result is hilarious and the most fun I’ve had making a gift in a long time. Some people even went on to draw SUPER CUTE illustrations of Mads with sloths, but I don’t feel comfortable posting their art so I’ll let them do that! However I had a hunch the internet would enjoy our photoshop delinquency. 

Tumblr doesn’t let me upload more than 10 images at a time but I implore you to also check out January, February, and March as well. They’re all so good. 

Thank you to bluealaris, lohkay, zimmay, finnichang, starthistle, lyndztanica, zetallis, lovemilkbun, pyawakit, akemi-k, darthbennett, and gneeworks for humoring me with this silly project.

Ke$ha is a perfect example of how the media loves to make intelligent girls seem dumb and bitchy even though they are actually smart and caring. Ke$ha isn’t far from being a feminist icon but the media continues to label her as a dumb drunk party girl.

and Ke$ha is all for loving yourself and equality but she continues to receive harassment from mainstream media. Enough harassment to the point that she developed an eating disorder because of it. She is an example of how horrible and sexist the music industry is.

Ke$ha stands in the category of “gifted genius”, she scored near perfect (1500) on her SAT’s and has an IQ of 140
