Trans men and non-binary people who can get pregnant: I SEE YOU.

I'm sorry for the erasure happening to you today. Your bodies, lives, dreams, safety, and health matters to me.

Hopefully I don't get paged tonight by my house. It did page me last night.

When a trans person posts a selfie, it is something to celebrate, because we get so many negative messages about our appearances, some even from ourselves. I definitely struggle with my own appearance, but it is important to have some self-love for ourselves too.

This is one way we can love ourselves.

Plus, it was a beautiful evening for a walk!

Do you think sometimes, "I don't know if I'm cis or not?"

It's okay to experiment with gender! Ask a trusted friend (or Starbucks barista!) to call you by another name or pronoun. Maybe it will fit. Maybe it won't.

Either way, you'll learn something about gender & yourself. And that's a win-win!

The word "binary" in reference to gender was used by trans people in writings in the 1980s.

Most DEI efforts don't meaningfully change anything. It's just PR for what they would do otherwise for profit.

Segmented marketing isn't DEI. It's profit-driven.

Need workers? You'll recruit women then! That's not DEI. Actual DEI shows up when you lay people off. Who is cut?

I'm still trying to figure out how anyone didn't realize that cryptocurrency would eventually trend towards zero.

I don't want abortion only for the people that "need" it.

I want abortion without it being anyone's business "why."

I found a use for Twitter. Shitting on brand accounts posting happy pride messages for companies that are actively harming queer people.

My pet peeve: assuming trans people transition physically for sex.

I am so sick of these allergies, adding to an already tough week.

I saw that a trans person posted a picture of her "before" picture next to her "after" today.

And it struck me again how much the eyes change with transition. There is life in trans peoples' eyes when they start living as themselves. And that is missing in the before pictures.

Trans peoples' eyes, when living as themselves, are beautiful.

So Comedy Asshole is in the news again for...yep, transphobic comedy.

Seriously, dude, I'm sorry you can't just own your attraction for trans women. But if you can't, maybe you should, I don't know, quit focusing on the subject?

Just saying.

To all the people who justify anti-choice positions with “my kids are the best thing in my life,” I say my gay marriage is that in mine. Yet I am not advocating eliminating straight marriage—because I realize my personal situation isn’t a universal truth. You should try that.

Being in neurotyipcal space most of my day, I forget how wonderful it can be to be in autistic space. Not needing to suppress my stims is amazing.
