A valid point, and our apologies Anon. <3 We try to be fully inclusive here at WKA, but the icon hadn’t really occurred to us. We’ve had this icon for quite awhile now, so I’m sure the other mods wouldn’t mind changing things up a bit. :) Any suggestions for the next icon, friends?
Thank you! And it’s been corrected. Thank you for pointing it out.
You are absolutely right! I corrected them. We apologize :/
Either is fine, really. I mean, obviously it’s a lot easier on us if you submit the research too (and you’ll see it on the blog a lot sooner if you do that), but we’re willing to do the research if you only submit the name. It’s nice if you at least tell us what they’re known for though (“inventor”, “activist”, whatever), in case there’s more than one person with that name. :)

They have a “cis-ladies” only policy. Somehow Trans men also factor into that policy. It’s a whole tangled mess of Transmisogynic fun, and douchebaggery.
We sure have! She’s featured right here. We try to tag our posts with the name of the woman, so if you’re ever unsure if we’ve covered someone already, just put in “womenwhokickass.tumblr.com/tagged/firstname-lastname”. :)
A major part of our blog are people who are no longer alive. As long as they’re a woman, send them in!
Thank you so much! Being inclusive is our highest priority, so we’re pleased that we’re getting something right.
We encourage our followers to let us know if they feel like we’re lacking in any kind of kick ass women and we’ll do our best to correct it.
I’ll accept that friendship. ^_^
Any particular reason as to why I’ve earned this?
Of course not! Erasing such a huge chunk of kickass women? Absolutely not.
While I could only bring you folks 120 posts throughout September, I have dozens of Trans Ladies still needing to be featured on this blog.
But if you ever feel like the content we’re posting is ignoring Trans women- send us an ask!
Could you send us a link of which image you’re referring to?
Thanks! I think it’s fantastic that our posts are becoming widely circulated- all these wonderful women definitely deserve to be well known, especially since the work they do is fantastic and kickass.
Way ahead of ya!
This month is dedicated to acknowledging the achievements of kick ass trans* women, because we thought that they were under represented on the blog and they often don’t get the recognition they deserve in general.
We’ll return to posting all kinds of women, both trans* and cis, once the month is over. Or we might even start a new theme!
Why do you assume that all of us are cis?
