Crossposted to The Spectrum Cafe. Ever since I started transition, ever since I even started to explore my dissonance, people have walked all over me. People have hurt me, used me, fucked me over and said horrible things about me and the other women like me. When I started blogging, when I raised my voice […]


Crossposted to The Spectrum Cafe. There’s a funny thing in the United States (and in a few other places too). It’s called a right to privacy. It isn’t perfect. After all, any right will have some limitations to account for clashes of rights. But for the most part, we all have a right to not […]


Media is rough. I get that. It can be hard to make it in the art world, it’s part of the reason I went into the sciences despite my writing and artistic capabilities (I’d say talent, but fucked if I know if I have any or not, I’ve yet to get published. I seem to […]


Guest post from Staticnonsense: Why hello there! I am a being, having been born into existence. But since that is a very long way to address me, you can simply refer to me as Static Nonsense or SN. I like pandas, kitties, Pixy Sticks and Linux. On an actual serious note, I am a young […]


Quest post from Quinnae, for your viewing pleasure: I’m Quinnae Moongazer and I’ll be your bloggy type person for today.

Warning: Some of the material described in this post may contain triggering descriptions of an abusive relationship that involved a rape.

I get a lot of feminists, or really, a lot of cis people in general, who seem miffed about my dissonance as a trans woman. Or, in many other cases, confused. Apparently, a deep psychological or instinctual pain has to… make rational sense. Apparently. This is illustrated best by a statement made by a cis […]


Allies. Supporters. Helpers. People who work with you in alliance, to aid your interests. No doubt they’re important. Alliance is what gives us the numbers we need to fight back against systemic oppression. We can’t go it alone, obviously, so we recruit people to the cause. Alliance is not just giving lip service. In fact […]


Addendum: I’ve heard tell that that there were some assertions Chally was white on twitter, apparently in a convo with me (wtf?). I didn’t catch this (nor can I seem to find the damn tweets regarding it) so I really gotta wonder what the fuck people are smoking to think I was involved in that. […]


This post has been crossposted as a guest post at Questioning Transphobia here. There was an incident a few weeks ago. It didn’t happen to my face but it still was a direct invasion of my privacy. First, some background: If you don’t know me, I’m polyamorous. I date, love and am intimate with multiple […]
