Just found myself writing "I'm an nb trans guy." I never call myself an "enby" - I meant I'm *a* non-binary trans guy but I'm still finding "an" more natural.

I'm interested if this is generally a function of acronyms (initialisms) when written out or if it's bc of enby?

Pls reply if you can think of any other acronyms we can test this with!
Poll: I would write (when I intend it to be read aloud as non-binary

Well I'm back! Phone died (for good) among other stresses but things are looking up.

My new passport arrived yesterday with my new legal name and gender!!! I feel so official 😅

I felt so good today I managed to submit 3 online forms, reply to 2 texts and send an email!

I often want to post more but at the same time I can't stop feeling like everything I have to say is worthless. Idk how I'm supposed to deal with the urge to apologize for existing and the feeling that I should make my presence as small as possible when the internet feels so hostile these days. Being a trans guy... doesn't exactly help.

I haven't been as active as usual but the last couple of times I was online I saw that a couple of the people I see around a lot haven't been here either. Personally I will forget this site exists for a month or two and then come back but I've noticed a lot of ppl are steadily active for a while and then just kinda abandon their accounts. Which is sad.

health, injury 

Not only am I sick, again, but I'm having my hand x rayed tomorrow bc I may actually have fractured it or something

self harm 

Was feeling ...bad... so I bashed my hand against the sofa expecting it to just hurt a bit but I got the frame with the side of my hand and it's swollen up a lot. Was supposed to be working tomorrow but I probably can't and the only person who can cover has been working all week already. I'm so upset I feel so guilty.

Me, on mastodon: "heaven is empty all the transgenders are here"

...is that anything?

Watching the Sarah zed fanfic vid and unfortunately it's making me seriously consider writing a multi-chapter spirk mermaid au fic.
This is gonna be so much work...

every so often i become filled with an inescapable urge to do a new self portrait. REALLY like this one so im making it my new avatar :)

the original version looks better i think - but the pink overlay layer makes it bi colours! :bisexual_flag: :transgender_flag:

It's a little messy in places but I like to think that adds charm 😅

Did this beginning of July it took me SO LONG! Hills in the background are a simplified version of a local view I took a picture of and the dragon is based on something I drew. All done on a sewing machine, various different fabrics, and then finished with various beads, sequins, and some mirrors from a broken mirror ball :blobcat:

There have now been almost 2,000 responses to this pronouns survey that is open to ANYONE of any gender: docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

I'm still hoping to get 200 responses from all the Big Gender Groups, so I've made a public spreadsheet for those figures: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

I've started a short and less official survey where you can rate how you feel about all the pronouns on a list.

It is open to EVERYONE regardless of gender or cis/trans status.

forms.gle/vrQWAigLiPgYTzsd8

Open until at least 12 noon UK time on Tuesday 26th July 2022.

The ninth annual international Gender Census 2022 is now open until 13th August 2022!

survey.gendercensus.com

It's for anyone whose gender (or lack thereof) isn't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

transphobia 

I'll be okay I can calm myself down but it's like.
Guess I just can't go there anymore.
Idk it's not as bad here bc there's content warnings I think? But this stuff is just so difficult to see all the time.

@ trans ppl I love you all so much <3

transphobia 

Checked birdsite looking for info about a podcast. First thing I see is a politician who wants to change UK law so trans ppl will no longer be protected from discrimination. Ended up getting distracted and coming across a rly transphobic article. It was pretty distressing. All the cis ppl talking about it just seemed happy that the writer was cancelled. I didn't even know going in that transphobia was involved. (Although I should've guessed by the title)
So. not feeling great.
