“It’s a girl,” the nurse said, softly. My mother smiled big, then nodded in silence. That was the first sentence of a book that describes my undoing. That was the first story someone else told for me. https://www.texasobserver.org/memoir-pretty-kb-brookins-excerpt/

"Help, community, support, connection: it IS out there for us. And the more we fight to access it, the more empowered we will become to make the changes necessary for trans joy – which means trans health – to become the rule, and not the exception." Fred

Jester's Free Cheatsheet for your Essay

Title: Antisemetism vs transphobia

  • Pre-existing bigotry that was politicized and radicalized

  • Part of a broader hate agenda including racism and persecution of the left

  • Bioessentialism, pseudoscience, "scientific" realism

  • Obsession with anatomical features

  • Demand that the targeted group is demarcated and identifiable in public

  • Target group perceived as being against Christians endangering core family values

  • Segragation of public facilities

  • Scores of laws passed against the targeted group

  • Jewish billionaires accused of being behind devious plot to destroy western civilization

  • World leaders turn blind eye due to upholding prejudice themselves

  • Messianic leader with a persecution fetish promises will gas them all, no one pays attention or thinks they mean it literally

  • Institutional takeover with bigoted fanatics placed in key positions in political and medical instritutions

  • Mainstream news outlet spreading inflammatory misinformation, propaganda and hate towards the targeted group

  • Well funded AstroTurf grassroots groups operate on country, neighborhood, school level

  • Mobs of angry young men harass targeted group in everyday life, plus the left for being traitors in supporting the group

There are two kinds of people. Those unconvinced , who sit on the fence until they see mass murder being added to this horrible list, in order to be convinced.

And those who get that end stage capitalism leverages transphobia as a convenient gateway to fascism.

The time to take action is now.

I am a long time #poetry fan. I'm catching up on Poetry Magazine podcasts while I'm traveling. Really enjoyed this interview with #trans poet, torrin a greathouse. They read their poems and describe their creative process in such a visceral way. It was well worth an hour of my life to listen in.

I guess I should get a filter word list for my youtube BEFORE being trans becomes an issue, anyone got a good list?

I'd like semi-conservative set since I believe youtube's filter just obliterates any message in the filter, rather than putting it up for moderation. So it should be like, "no reason to use this full phrase". I could use a more aggro one for Discord since I think it at least shows you what gets moderated

It's Pride month, and now that we're 55 years after Stonewall, it can be awfully easy to forget why it's all such a big deal--and what Pride exists to do.

This week on , we're diving into the lifesaving importance of Pride and the Prejudice that makes it so necessary. Grab a rainbow flag, show yourself a little love, and join us as we talk about internalized self-stigma and shame.

So what's like the least absolutely awful dating app if you're

I was planning to finally look at one if only to find some local gamer/fuckbuddy friends (moreso than a relationship tbh) but that whole thing has...made it pretty awkward and it was never going to be fun

Feeling like I should have/should make a new YouTube channel to start over with using only my new voice (not that it'll stay the same either) vs "it literally shouldn't matter either way"

mostly just feeling bad about my voice I guess

It's weird to both crave validity yet also wish absolutely everything were like my cats, they don't treat me any different except being scared of loud heels and sniffing any new makeup/etc I wear

How Anti-Trans Efforts Misuse and Distort Science

Three types of misinformation are being used against transgender people: oversimplifying scientific knowledge, fabricating and misinterpreting research and promoting false equivalences

Got a chance to work a fifth granny square. I picked up this cotton yarn remnant stash at a garage sale seemingly a lifetime ago - one-off balls in a whole bunch of rainbow-friendly colors perfect for Pride Month and Earth Day and other opportunities to have color joy.

Being #trans has never meant that you become a woman. It means that you have to accept the reality that you are a woman born into a different body.

We do not choose any of this. It is a painful experience to realize and when you realize that a lot of the society will shun you for who you are it is not something we wish on others.

This is why we celebrate #Pridemonth because society does not see us as equals.

But the good news is because I have accepted who I am I can surround myself with people that care.
