California’s School Success and Opportunity Act (AB1266) Will Save Lives

Apparently, what used to be called, "providing basic human decency," is now, "political correctness run amok!" Apparently, it's more important to indulge ridiculous hypotheticals like, "what if a boy just says he's a girl one day so he can go in the girl's bathroom?!"

Vacation, bathing suit, anxiety

I traveled to Michigan this past weekend with my girlfriend and one of our other friends. We stayed at our friend’s family’s lakeside cottage. We had a lot of fun. I wore a bathing suit (top) in public for the first time ever. That was… that was an intense feeling. There were certain very familiar […]

The Part is Not the Sum: Being More Than My Label

I’ve recently cut down on the amount of trans-specific content I’ve posted to my other social media accounts.

[HRT update: Day 48]

I really want to write a book. Fiction, non-fiction, or total garbage. Ever since starting hormones, I’ve just had such a rush of emotions coursing through my mind, begging for a true outlet.

This is certainly a change from the pre-HRT days of either no emotions or only negative emotions (frustration, anger).

I just want to get […]

This is the first day of my life

As of yesterday morning, I am officially in possession of a prescription for HRT.

I am psyched.

This puts me on a path that I’m just so very sure of. This puts me on a path towards being a person, and not just a shell […]

[superhero secret identities]

Earlier this week, I was at work, sitting in our morning meeting. I had torn a contact lens that morning, so I was wearing my glasses. I tend not to wear my glasses all that often (staring at a computer for 8 hours in my glasses is no fun), and I guess this was the […]
