Trans Inclusive: Mastercard’s New ‘True Name’

A lot of trans people have a rough time with their names, and no one seems to make it easier. Here’s something that’s going to help out a lot.

Mastercard is rolling out a “True Name” program in which cardholders can replace their debit, credit, and prepaid cards with ones bearing the name they actually use, and a legal name change isn’t even required.

More About ‘Summer Penis’

I’ve posted about the concept of summer penis before, but here’s something brand new. I don’t know if there’s any science to back this up…other than what’s in this piece right now.

Burger King’s Instagram and Penis Drawings

Someone’s been playing around with Burger King’s Instagram and they’ve uploaded a few questionable images. But there’s allegedly a reason for it. 

Since yesterday, the brand’s tags have been taken over by pranksters who have uploaded images in such an order that if you look at the brand’s photos as a grid, several pictures come together to make up one big penis.

Here’s the link. The story does get a little more involved, with respect to art, creativity, and trying to teach Burger King a lesson. It’s interesting. But frankly, this is why I never ever share images of any kind on this web site, unless of course I know they are in the public domain, I have written permission, or they are free to share. And I always give credit if they are free to share.
