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.
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:
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 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

im so angry
!!!!! Or to a black child “why is your hair like that?”
My flight was from Dallas to Charlotte, NC…
then from there to New York.
I’m in Hartford, Connecticut.
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.
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.
FINALLY SOMEONE DISMISSES THESE AWFUL GAY STEREOTYPES
My respect level for T-Pain is out the roof right now.
UR STILL FUGLY
being an unattractive horny teenager is actually so hard i want to cry
So top is me looking good now with a t-shit cause no awkward lumps (except for my tummy) and then the Mepitav is what my doctor gave me to go.over my incisions to heal scarring. Then selfie….because I’m happy. And last, that’s what it looks like ATM. So yeah, all in all not bad.
…… 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.
