I have a few reflections and advice on the 5-year anniversary of coming out as transgender:

1. The best piece of advice I got: "Your transition belongs to you." There are no true rules in this. You don't even have to transition, and you certainly don't have to transition to anything established, or understandable to anyone else.

There are no objective body schedules or social milestones. You are free to make up WHATEVER you want. And you are free to push for your standards to be respected and assisted. Transition belongs to you.

Outside of hard-and-fast medical numbers and safety guidelines (real physical safety, not gatekeeping bullshit), you'll encounter invisible rails attempting to direct your experience. It's alright to oppose this, and to call them out. But the core of your experience is your own, and that can't be taken away.

it's obvious that my living situation is extremely unhealthy and my roommates are the primary source.

my paypal is /@whiskwallet, i'll try to set up other stuff if anyone wants to help chip in with me paying for personal health expenses and moving the hell away from these people

i literally moved across the country with them and they're treating me horribly without even realizing it. it's unbearable, ngl

the push to re-instate Queer as a slur is TERF agenda because its easier for them to figure out who the "wrong" sorts are by neat little labels. Queer is too inclusive and too covert and they HATE it.

so using Queer is a real schrodinger problem. you're either the right or wrong type but they can't know which until they look in the box and it drives them up the wall.

good. die mad about it. i'll die queer.

Apparently 250 Seattle cops have quit in the past 17 months. Keep bullying cops y'all :acab:

if you boil a funny bone, you make a laughing stock

hoo boy.. with the ADL and Paypal partnering up to "combat terrorism and extremism", here's a reminder to NEVER EVER SPECIFY a political cause in your donations/ direct aid. If you have to, be vague: diapers, groceries, tire repair, just send i love yous and happy birthdays. don't fucking rat yourself and others out.

and remember, this goes for Venmo as well, because Paypal owns them.

why are colonizer countries loudest about foods they stole? tea in england, chocolate in belgium. fucking tomatoes in italy and spain.

"Cis women dont have facial hair!"
Yes they do
"Cis women dont have body hair!"

"Cis women dont produce testosterone!"

"Cis women dont have XY chromosomes"

Transphobes, I know you wanna use cis women to shit on us transes but transphobic rhetoric hurts all women so... stop that

People always say DuckDuckGo is worse than Google but I have the opposite experience completely. Google is only good when it's something local, or something very very well-known. Anything obscure or technical is MUCH easier to find with DDG. For example, I just searched for a Star Trek landline phone from the 90s that I remember from childhood. Google gives random facts about Star Trek. DDG's top result is an eBay listing selling the exact phone. Google ignores keywords waaaay too much

The notion that the state should protect and serve anything but itself is just as silly as the idea that the police should. It has never been the case and never will be. The role of the state is to perpetuate the state.
