I'm sick of transphobia

I guess I just need to vent, and the title says a lot of that. CW - violence against trans people, including murder. It's insane, I can't get an accurate number, but I'm seeing 19 transgender murders in the US this year, apparently 9 in just the last 10 days. Dustin Parker, Monika Diamond, Neulisa L...

Re: Several months into Covid and social distancing, how is everyone doing?

I didn't think being around people could more stressful is the biggest thing. With that though, I'm pretty used to this as the new normal. Part of my province is opening up, one of the other major cities are still not allowed to because they still have quite a large number of cases, whereas my city,...

Re: Needing advice

I believe I've said this before around binding but --- You don't need to be trans in order to take birth control. I have multiple cis friends who use birth control in order to suppress or stop their periods. If it's something that makes you uncomfortable, you have every right to find ways to allevia...

Re: How do you like to receive love/affection?

When I think of what I want in a relationship, and how I want to receive love and affection I really look at my parents' relationship. I love all the little jokes they leave for each other, the cute notes, or even the way when my mom comes home after a long day at work the first person she looks for...

Re: I don't want to acknowledge it.

I love what Amanda is saying here, I know you don’t want to report this assault so I would be sure to ask that if you call, or talk to anyone - ask for their confidentiality rules first before disclosing any information. There are a few other places you can talk about this with - for example because...

Yeah, I think a lot of what's on that first one is just basic respect for each other, boundaries will continue to be set but really, I don't think I'm throwing a whole lot of expectations in.

Yeah, taking it slow really helps. I always try to take relationships of any kind really slow and building trust that way, with evaluations and reflections of how it all feels. Honestly she seems really chill, and things feel pretty natural in that sense. If anything, even if things don't work out, ...

It would have been unethical if she didn't, so instead of just saying "I can't help you" she phrased it as "I don't know how much I'm going to be able to support you through this, so we should find the services that would be a better option for you." which is chill. It did really...

She still came upstairs and at first she thought I was just bored and she does think that plays a role into it - but not just boredom, she explained that some more.

Thank you, Heather.

I just really wish I could have a break from feeling this way honestly. Everything hurts at this point and although I don't know what my mom will be able to do, maybe just talking to her will help. I really need to get out of this rut though.

So, I know with periods some pain is pretty normal but as I look more into those things and talk a little more with my friends and also like as time goes on I'm feeling a little more concerned I guess, and thinking it couldn't hurt to ask.

It's strange how eas...
