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 […]

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: Letters

I’m sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. I’ve had a busy week — erg, well, mentally busy anyway.

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 […]
