Captain of my own ship, I've lead my life to New York. Now I'm just working on leading myself to becoming the man I was meant to be.

Anonymous: why are you a feminist???

1480px:

because people are still asking that question

because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal

because of this:

image

because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)

because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult

because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky

because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations

because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’

because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end

beCAUSE OF ARTICLES LIKE THIS

because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.

because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

because how can you not be

Educating a Friend

Me: So, let's say that you're at school and you see a guy you know. I mean, you guys talk every once in a while and he's pretty cool, but you're not like friends or anything. You just talk to him every once in a while.
Guy Friend: What's his name?
Me: I don't know. Frank?
Guy Friend: No.
Me: Okay, fine. His name is Will. Okay?
Guy Friend: I don't think it really suits him, but okay.
Me: ...So anyway, you're at school during lunchtime and you see Will. So, you notice Will's not eating anything. That's when you realize that Will has no lunch, no money for lunch, and no way of getting either. He's just sitting there like he normally would. He's not acting any differently and he's not asking anyone for anything. Not money, not a fry, not even a salt packet, but you know he's gotta be hungry. So, what do you do?
Guy Friend: Do I have any money?
Me: Yeah. You have enough for you and another meal.
Guy Friend: Duh, I buy him lunch.
Me: Okay, cool. So, like you said, you buy him lunch. You buy your lunch and you buy his lunch and you go over and hand it to him. And, he says, "Wow. You know, that's really nice of you, but I wasn't gonna ask anyone for lunch. I was probably just gonna wait until I got home to eat." And, then you say--
Guy Friend: Nah, it's cool.
Me: Exactly. You say, "Nah, it's cool. I'm just being nice. It's a gift." And, Will says, "You know, that's awesome. You're really nice, bro." And, after that, you guys start hanging out. You guys are like really good buds. You are always hanging out and laughing and just having a good time. So, you guys are friends for a few months, and it's tons of fun. Then, one day, you go up to Will and you say, "Hey, Will, you know, I've been thinking, and I kinda want that five bucks."
Guy Friend: What five bucks?
Me: Hold on. I'm getting there. So, Will says, "What five bucks?" To which, you reply, "Well, we've been hanging out for a long time and it's been really fun, but like, I've done a lot of really nice things for you. Like, I'm always nice to you and I always listen and do things you wanna do, so I was thinking that because I've been so nice, you should pay me back that five bucks I spent to get your lunch right before we started really hanging out."
Guy Friend: What? Why would I--
Me: I'm not done yet. So, then Will looks kinda hurt and he says, "But I thought you were just being nice. I thought that was just a gift." So, you say, "Whether or not it was a gift, don't you think you kinda owe me that five bucks since I've been so nice to you?" And, Will says, "No. I don't think I owe you that!" And you get mad, so you say, "Well, I think that you do, so I think you're being really shitty and stuck up about this and I feel like I've been completely wronged."
Guy Friend: Oh, my God. That's so fucked up of me. I would never do that to Will. Will was nice. We were buds. That's way screwed.
Me: I know, right? Hey, just wondering, have you ever heard of this fictional place called "The Friendzone?"
Guy Friend: Well, yeah, but...
Guy Friend: ...
Guy Friend: ...
Guy Friend: oh

My flight was from Dallas to Charlotte, NC…

then from there to New York. 

I’m in Hartford, Connecticut.

WHAT!?
actually, our  flight couldn’t land the first two times it tried (which were scary as fuck ‘cause of the turbulence) and now we ended up stopping in Hartford ‘till the weather gets better in NY and while we refuel. 

I just wanna see my friends and get back.

Anonymous: And bc I'm a loser I was scrolling through your blog and aw you're a cute lil dude

Previous message 1: So wait are you truscum or not¿

Previous message 2: Bc if so right fuckin on

I don’t think you have to have dysphoria to define yourself as trans so I don’t believe I’m truscum, However, I do understand why there is a need for us to go to therapy first, because life changes are big when transitioning. However, I fully support non-binary people as well, and don’t think that they need to have the therapy as they aren’t going from one end of the spectrum to the other, therefore the physiological effects are lessened on both the mind and body. 

And thanks, I guess….I’m not great with compliments.

Start spreading the news, I am leaving today……….

…… I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.

But yeah, I’m going back! I’m really excited. My flight leaves tomorrow so I’m spending the night at Amy’s and leaving in the morning. I can’t believe it…I’m tremendously excited. But like, anxious too. I had surgery and I look different and while that’s all cool with me, it’s also like nerve wracking. Plus, now I have like, LEGIT responsibilities at the paper and I’m so scared of failing at that. 

But honestly, I’m super excited to see my friends and get to all my classes. They’re a bit daunting but still, EXCITING! So yeah, I’m quite back and forward on my feelings. 

Ah, but update: I had my last appointment yesterday and it all looks good apparently. I saw it all too and honestly, I’m crazy happy about the results. Just FYI, I did my surgery in Texas, so if someone is looking for a good doctor around the DFW area, I used Dr. Dulin at the American Institute for Plastic Surgery.  This center does both Male To Female procedures and Female to Male procedures though I can only truly vouch for the wonderful surgery I got, which was FTM top surgery. However, the staff is crazy nice, and they’re amazingly good at helping out and making one feel comfortable, which to me was a priority. 

But yeah….life and stuff is happening and all is great.

I’ll post an updated picture of my surgery and incisions post-op as well as one with like, a shirt, later.
