Today was an eventful day. I taught a member of the Chinese elite to pronounce Wal-Mart. On the drive home, I was feeling rather dehydrated and considered raiding the dumpster of the CVS I was passing for something to drink. My life has changed in unanticipated ways since I began college two years ago.
Done! I turned in three papers tonight! Collectively, over 7,000 shoddily-researched words have left my brain and entered the inboxes of two of my favorite professors ever. Now I have only my pesky stats final to take before I am a free man (for all of three days - then I leave to begin my semester in Madagascar). I can’t wait to finish the semester that all of my peers completed back in...
This is what my paper-writing research looks like
http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/enamored.html If you’re crazy about ferrets, you’re enamored of them. It is less common but still acceptable to say “enamored with”; but if you say you are enamored by ferrets, you’re saying that ferrets are crazy about you. I can grammar with the best of them, but stuff like this gets me every time. In a week, I am headed off to a semester of French...
The only childhood scars were on my shins.– http://nifty.guiltygroups.com/nifty/gay/college/joe-college/joe-college-2 I love this line, and so desperately wish it could be true for more people.
Schmattim and Zebu
Two of the three bathrooms in my house have books about Jewish jokes. Two of the three books in the bathrooms of my house are about Jewish jokes. My family is religious in the oddest ways. T-minus 12 days until Madagascar. I am going to start a tumblr about my experiences studying abroad. It will be mostly pretty pictures and meta-analyses of culture. There will probably be some personal...
Fuck Yeah FTMs!: Scared as Sh!yte, please help? →
fuckyeahftms: hello lads, it’s me again. I have made my mind up, about half an hour ago, that it is time to come out. I have to, but I’m pretty scared. To be honest I’m scared as fudge. Anyway I have come to realise each time I read something good about coming out on here my confidence goes through the roof,… I’ve come out about gender/sexuality so many times in my life (I think...

boygirlboigrrrl: delisubthefemmecub: I wish you luck on your journey. And also, I warn you that many trans people (including myself) have found women’s colleges to be far less supportive than we expected. I would encourage you to look beyond women’s colleges for safe space. If a women’s college feels right… I attend a women’s school as a transmale, and I don’t think that...
Two posts in one night!? Tumbln' just got Real.
Things I have learned about myself tonight: I have the capacity to write great, semi-incomprehensible improv poetry about myself as a transguy while looking in the mirror. I could write opinion pieces on minority rights until my fingers bled and still have thoughts left to put down. I am breezing through my Peace Studies final like an active wind turbine right now. And it’s going to be...
Hormone Levels and I am still depressed, the...
Just got an email from my doctor, my T levels (I’m not on HRT) are high but within the normal range for a -female- my age. Part of me is doing a happy little [GIF: Frank from the Rocky Horror Picture show, wearing a corset and fishnets, dancing in place.] while another part of me is reasoning that my hormone levels don’t have a thing to do with my gender and that celebrating this...
If I had all of the time, I would rewrite David Levithan poems with gender-neutral pronouns. Those are the love stories that I really, really want to read. If I didn’t have music, I don’t know if I could ever be truly happy. Happiness is music to me. Like when I am in Caleb’s room, playing my guitar for hir, watching hir close hir eyes to listen and knowing ze understands what...

sexgenderbody: acrosstheborderofmyheart: You are human. You are worthy of respect. You deserve to be treated with the same dignity as anyone else. There is nothing inherently wrong with your gender. You are not broken, you are not disgusting, you do not deserve to be hurt. You’ve been brought up and live in a world that’s designed to erase and demonize your existence, you’ve probably...
