I have watched The Lego Movie every day over the last week and I’m not even a little bit embarrassed

"

Those who claim that sex is determined by chromosomes must not realize that sex is assigned at birth not by chromosomes, not even by gonads, but by genitals. In fact, the vast majority of us never learn what our sex chromosomes are. Sex isn’t something we’re actually born with, it’s something that doctors or our parents assign us at birth. So if sex is determined by genitals, they must be clearly binary and unchangeable, right? Wrong. Genitals can be ambiguous at birth and many trans people get gender confirmation surgery to change them. Neither chromosomes nor genitals are binary in the way that “biological sex” defenders claim they are, and the vast majority of measures by which we judge sex are very much changeable.

While it is true that gender and sex are different things, and that gender is indeed a social construct, sex isn’t the Ultimate Biological Reality that transphobes make it out to be. There’s nothing intrinsically male about XY chromosomes, testosterone, body hair, muscle mass or penises. If an alien civilization found earth, they wouldn’t look at a person with a penis and say “Oh, that must be a male, sex based on genitalia is the One Universal Constant.” Sex, like gender, is indeed socially constructed and can be changed.

the texture on this nail polish is so cool. I just want everyone to touch my fingernails

i feel like being privy to a trans person’s birth name, seeing it displayed so boldly (literally in a bold font), even if they had work published under that name in the past, is such a horrific violation of privacy. i feel dirty for knowing the birth names of trans idols. i feel gross for seeing our abandoned names highlighted for all to gawk at. i feel sick that they’re engraved seemingly permanently on articles only the most elite wikipedian arbitrators can alter.

wikipedia is awful.

I’m sooo glad me using the bathroom wasn’t weird for you until the last moment. Thanks for letting me know

I hate how all it takes is an improperly fit work shirt to turn me in to a quivering ball of dysphoria

TRANS LIFE SIMULATOR

This is a simple text based game where you play as a young trans person trying to buy some underwear. I made it with the intention of showing cis people what it’s like to be trans. You can play as a trans girl, trans boy, or a nonbinary person. It’s short, so you can play it multiple times for different paths. There are several paths, some better, some worse; if you’re easily triggered by dysphoria or transphobia, you may want to avoid this game. Some paths are safer than others, depending on how well you pass (surprise, surprise). TW for homophobic/transphobic slurs, transphobia/transmisogyny, slurs, misgendering, and possible violence.

I did this just to see how relatable it was, and holy shit it was like someone put me back in the spots i was in only a year ago.  My heart is racing shit. 

ow… my everything hurts…

Hey all my cis followers: this is instructive. Go play it.
