Transitioning. I changed from a repressed “male” who was merely existing with no social life, to an outgoing woman who is living, happy, helps others (LGBTQIA groups, women’s groups, et al), and is motivated and involved socially and politically. Before I transitioned, I only had ID photos; now I have too many photos…
Money. Also, you’d be amazed how often the LGB part of the community is ok with a little fudging when it comes to the T part of the community.
That’s not fair. Many of them are good with as many as 14 words.
The Sumerian Book entered a Hobby Lobby and folded itself out of existence after seeing the horrors within.
Another case of Asimov’s Cult of Ignorance - “My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
My wife gave me an easter basket that contained among other things Reese’s Eggs. They are small so tend to get lost in the fake grass. Each day I would root around to see if I could find one I missed. I did this for about two weeks before I found out my wife kept putting a new one in the basket at night.
A bit off topic, but when I saw this Labo review, my first thought was, as a toy guy, Fahey would be doing the review. Then I realized we haven’t had any Fahey articles in a while - even his Twitter has gone silent for the past month when prior it was getting multiple posts a day.

So, I did the super cliche thing on the Day of Visibility and came out as trans today to my friends and family who did not already know (all but about 6 people). It honestly went great. Tons of support, including from some family members I had feared might not be on board, no warnings that my soul would be condemned…
My trans kid <3 he’s not mine per se, but I love him so much! He transitioned (the guy on the right) from female to male a few years ago. He’s my heart. ♥️ He moved to London a few years ago and I miss him so. I honestly don’t understand people that don’t understand.
So I guess this is my chance to rant.
I wish whenever people wrote frenzied pieces about “the opoid epidemic,” they also took into consideration how hard it is for chronic sufferers to actually get pain medication, largely because doctors are too scared or apathetic to prescribe it.
And people wonder why BLM protested police presence at the Pride parade, and why Pride Toronto banned cops from marching in uniform.
I live now in a very nice blue state now, with people who for the most part treat me with kindness or at least a modicum of respect while I am in their presence. But even still the very first PCP I tried contacting when i moved here which i got from a old trans-friendly resources list shuttled me off to some third…
While this is upsetting, it’s not exactly unaccustomed for trans folks. We’re used to being treated as untouchables when it comes to medical stuff-a lot of the time it boils down to whether medical professionals will at least be courteous enough to pretend that they can’t treat us due to “unfamiliarity” with the…
If your religious or “moral” views prevent you from providing service to a patient who doesn’t fit within your moral framework, you (1) have really shitty religious/“moral” beliefs and (2) should find a line of work that doesn’t require you to come into contact with people you find morally objectionable.
I dunno, I cosplayed as a clueless moderate white guy for ~15 years and it’s pretty shitty. You spend a lot of time being angry and alienated having no idea why.
Ye gods, the only saving grace about this administration is their overpowering incompetence. I’m sure given time they’ll manage to do plenty of damage, but the real nightmare is, think how bad things would be if they were effective?
