Crossposted at The Spectrum Cafe Identity. It’s deeply personal and for the most part we go way out of our way to protect it. Not just our own but others as well. At least when identity policing and erasure isn’t going on. It’s one of those sacrosanct inviolable rules of the Alphabet Soup community (GLBTQQIAsomethingsomethingetc) […]


Quest post from Quinnae, for your viewing pleasure: I’m Quinnae Moongazer and I’ll be your bloggy type person for today. My identity is, like most people’s, ever a work in progress and I’ll be pretty damn awesome if I’d only finish it. But I’m a trans woman trying to make her dreams come true and […]


This post has been guest posted at Harlot’s Parlour Chasers. Admirers. Fetishists. Words that often create a very emotional response from trans folk and many other groups for whom such things apply to. If you’re not in the know (and you probably aren’t, considering my audience) there’s a bit of explaining to do here. Let’s […]


Most of you may know by now. I have Attention Deficit Disorder. Technically Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Inattentive Type, as the new DSM edits have revealed. I was diagnosed a while back, even medicated. I’m not currently as the stimulants trigger my IBS and I need a new diagnosis to get back on any med, […]


Mild Clarification: Some people were a bit confused and thought that conceptual sexuality and physical sexuality are invariably separate. Actually, it’s quite possible to have both. So say if you were attracted to breasts and vagina only, but also could only find folks who are women attractive (so say, you’d not find a pre op/pre […]


In tradition of my previous post of building trans women up and decentering cis folk’s oppression of us for a while (as well as avoiding the stress inducing shitstorm of anger toxicity that I get when I let rage consume the fuck out of me, as I have been doing lately), I’ve been working on […]


I’m going to start this post with one statement to all of my sisters out there: You are beautiful. No exceptions. No dismissals. You. Are. Beautiful. What brought this on? Well besides the obvious (that more of us need to be built up instead of being torn down) I recently spotted a search term that […]


This post was originally published August 21, 2009 here. In case you didn’t know (and you probably do) I am a MtF transsexual (by official definitions). By less official (my own) definitions I am a badass awesome genderfuckery factory who was born with a certain body and figured out that oh shit, that body fucking […]


This post was originally published August 15, 2009 here. For those that remember the last post about people finding cisgendered offensive based on some of the most fallacious and stupid reasoning applicable, don’t forget, trans people are just as capable of fallacious silliness. When in comes to fallacious arguments and pseudoscience, no one does it […]


This post was originally published August 06, 2009 here. There seems to be some serious misunderstandings going on about gender as a concept. It happens in the feminist community, it happens in the genderqueer community and the trans community and really, it happens everywhere. Some of these misunderstandings and misconceptions are simply an attempt to […]
