I’m kinda nervous about starting hormones. First because I’m going to have to do shots. I wasn’t anticipating that. I imagined I’d go on a patch. But my doctor basically said he didn’t think any prescription less than 100mg was worth it. He wanted to give me 200, but agreed to 100 when I said I don’t mind if it takes longer, and I want to make sure I won’t get any emotional side effects. I didn’t mention there’s also the problem that my family doesn’t know I’m going on hormones.

I guess that’s what else I’m nervous about. That my family will be able to tell, and will give me shit for it.

My sister is getting married in November. We went to try on bridesmaid dresses, and my mom said to me, “you’re going to have to shave for this one,” and I said, “it’s not happening” and she said, “you need to” and my sister said “I don’t care” and I said, “see? She doesn’t care” and my mom said, “I care,” and I said, “well it’s not your body” and closed the dressing room door. My mom looked like I had slapped her face. But when I opened the door again she gave me a hug and said, “oh my beautiful daughter” and I had to restrain myself from rolling my eyes into the back of my head.

I’ve come out to them. They know I’m genderqueer. They know I prefer they/them pronouns. But they still refer to me with female-identifiers and pronouns.

I know I’m allowed to do what I want with my body. But it is hard when you don’t have the support of your family. But I do kinda have a chosen family now. I have two really great friends who are there for me no matter what. And they can help me with my shots. And with my side effects. And with the natural changes of transitioning.


I got a prescription for t! I’ll start hrt soon!!

Posts about heterophobia and cisphobia: 100,000 notes

Posts about rising antisemitism worldwide and about Jews being 62% of all religiously motivated hate crimes: 5 notes, 4 of which complaining about Palestine.

If I hadn’t have put the part about hetero/cisphobia, none of you would have reblogged this. Because no one gives a fuck about Antisemitism.

trans women being worse off (partly due to trans men) 

So … people who are biologically female oppress biological males? They also literally say the paragraph above, “Women can not wield institutionalised power over men”. Like? What?

Yes it’s true I hate trans men.

YOU ARE LITERALLY HATING FEMALES AND THEN SAYING THAT SAID FEMALES ARE “MISOGYNISTIC”

They like to misgender themselves in order to invade women’s spaces and deny trans women entry

It’s wrong for a female to go into a woman’s space and deny males entry? I can’t fucking deal with this person this might actually be peak Tumblr I

holy shit someone misgendering people in order to prove transmisandry exists.  UMM THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS PLEASE STOP MISGENDERING PEOPLE.  TRANS MEN ARE MEN.  TRANS WOMEN ARE WOMEN. HATING ON TRANS MEN IS NOT HATING ON FEMALES.SAYING TRANS MEN ARE MISOGYNISTIC IS NOT SAYING FEMALES ARE MISOGYNISTIC.I can’t with transphobes.

I saw this nautical dress over on Modcloth last week, and knew I just had to have it.. I’m really crushing on a-line dresses, and I absolutely love blue and beige together, I decided to keep this outfit simple and just let the dress shine, and felt inspired to try a new locale for the photoshoot. I’m feeling super cute and really loving how this set turned out. What do you think, Tumblr?
