GENDERFUL Talks: Interview Series

I just wanted to share a new video/interview series on the YouTube channel for my latest project (GENDERFUL). The first three episodes are up, and I have several more interviews (AND a few solo vlogs) in the works for the coming weeks. So far, my conversations have been with other transmasculine folks, but I’m excited to include a wide spectrum of gender identities and […]

today is a good day

I’m afraid I’ve all but abandoned The Butchelor in favor of other pursuits (mostly related to my “second transition“) 😉 I’ve wondered a bit, lately, about the best course of action for this site… The Butchelor currently averages about 100 unique visitors everyday, and I definitely feel there’s some useful information here, for anyone facing similar […]

FYI: Top Surgery Information

I had double-incision mastectomy + free nipple-grafts with Dr. Raphael at the American Institute for Plastic Surgery in Plano, Texas on August, 18 2010, and I really couldn’t be happier with the results. You hear a LOT out in the trans-interwebs about Dr. Garramone in Sunrise, Florida, and his work certainly speaks for itself; he’s […]

an update…

I’ve seriously neglected this blog (and its followers), and for that I sincerely apologize. Lately, I’ve considered archiving this particular blog/URL and migrating over to Tumblr to continue documenting transition/trans* related stuff… (eh, to be determined). At any rate, there’s a LOT of updating I’ve wanted to do over the last several months, but to […]

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” ~Anatole France I haven’t blogged in an entire lifetime. No, seriously… SO much has happened, and it’s pretty daunting to even consider catching […]

Personal: Coming Out Woes and WHOAs!

I’m SO sorry that (once again) I kinda fell off the planet… it’s definitely been a stressful few weeks, and I just haven’t found the focus/energy to write — even though I really have wanted to. I guess I’m also a little frustrated with myself for not making more progress on the coming out front. […]

Personal: Growing Up Girl

When i was little I loved to climb trees and play in the dirt and ride my bike. My BLUE boy’s BMX bike. As I got a little older and my friends started having crushes on the boys in our class, I realized that MY crushes weren’t on those stupid boys that I played with in […]

Personal: Letters

I’m sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. I’ve had a busy week — erg, well, mentally busy anyway. I had my second appointment with Therapist 2.0 on Tuesday and now, as luck would have it, I ALSO have an appointment with a trans-friendly gynecologist (ugh, ugh, UGH!) this afternoon — BUT the good news is that […]

Personal: Gender as Color

Colors exist in a spectrum. Everyone knows this. In elementary school kids learn about “ROY G. BIV” and the fact that some colors are created from the combination of other colors, beginning with the three primaries:  Red, Blue and Yellow. Simple, right? You mix colors together; you get new, more complicated colors. By the same […]
