FYI: “Female to Male Sex Change Explained”

I thought these videos by Warren (posts as sillyyetsuccinct on YouTube) were preeetty great and very well-thought-out… “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

Personal: I wish…

Sometimes I wish I’d just been born male… or female – or “straight”… non-queer… WHATEVER. As long as it was at least, like, 90% “something” and without question.
