T Update: Three Weeks (already!)

I’ve been trying to post for the last week and a half – in fact, I think this post makes a grand total of FIVE attempts. Yeeeeeah, I’ve started and subsequently BAILED on five different topics (don’t worry, they’re saved as Drafts, so maybe they’ll get finished… Eventually.). I really want to write SOMETHING to […]

Kyle, from over at Butchtastic, created an Ah-MAY-Zing list of “Butch, Genderqueer, Genderfluid, Genderfuck and Trans Blogs to watch out for“ Seriously. It’s the most comprehensive, detailed list that I’ve seen — complete with blog AND Twitter links. Check it out… seriously. Go. Now. It’s an impressive resource to be sure. I’ve already added at […]

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 […]

I was expecting to be months away from anything… I was expecting that she […]

Personal: Progress (part 1)

My poor ADD brain is so overloaded right now; I’m not really sure where to start… (Hmm… Perhaaaps I should start with an appointment to get back on some sorta meds for that damn ADD. Heh.) At any rate, I had my first appointment with my new** therapist yesterday Tuesday afternoon, and I’m still reeling […]

Personal: Visibility Among Lesbians

So, I hung out a couple of nights this week at a popular lesbian(ish) bar here in town, and wow… it really made me FEEL like a lesbian —err, rather, it’s reminded me that I LOOK like a lesbian (duh, right? I know… I mean, up until fairly recently** I’d been living my life as […]

You Tell Me: Gym + Binders = Suck

I really, really, really, REALLY need to get my ass back in the gym… and for the most part – I’m READY. Like, really, really READY. But when the time comes, and I think about what it’s like to workout in a binder – I inevitably find an excuse not to go. I get hung up […]

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. Of course, then I remind myself that SURELY there’s a reason that *this* is my journey. That this fucked-up mess of gender and sexuality is all part of […]
