I’m disgusted.

I was picking up a few items to make my grandma some pumpkin cookies and I was just walking through the store trying to figure out which aisle things were in and there was an elderly lady who was using a cane who was hardly over five feet tall, going around shopping, I was turning to go into the candy section to get some chocolate chips and I heard this man, who is much taller then me, I’d say around 6’4-5? (I’m 6 foot) tell this lady to get out of his way and move, and I look over to see her trying to move out of this man’s way, though it was obviously hard with her purse and cart and cane all at once.

Before she had a CHANCE to move this man PUSHED her into another aisle, where she fell over and hit the shelves, then he just walked away like nothing happened. I went over to her and helped her up and found her a bench she could sit on, she hit her head pretty badly and was obviously in pain, so I asked her if I could take her list and go get the items she needed. She gave it to me then I did, then I helped her check out and took her to her car. I was really worried about her driving though, not because she was older but due to her hitting her head so she called her son and he came and picked her up, I waited with her.

Once she was safe and left, she said thank you and all that, she called me miss but that didn’t matter, I’m not on T yet, I don’t look like a man, but you know I didn’t go off on her. I didn’t go off at the store manager when he called me miss when I reported what the guy looked like to him. 

Sometimes you don’t need to correct people, sometimes things are more important then your pronouns or gender, I’m never going to see these people again, and I was far more concerned with the safety of this lady then I was my fucking ‘preferred pronouns”

and to think, people on this site would go off on this lady who just hurt herself, and would call her cis scum just because she used the wrong pronouns. Seriously if you would do that, you disgust me almost the same as the guy who pushed that lady down.

The San Francisco Health commission struck down existing trans exclusions from the city’s own “Healthy SF” medical plan (a plan available to citizens of SF but only gives coverage within city limits).

What would you guys like to see on a T-shirt?

I’m raising money for my transitioning funds by making/selling shirts, Iphone cases, ect. not just trans related either. I’m doing a general “pride” series, but I’m also making my own logos and designs to go on them. Are there any trans ‘symbols” or just designs in general you’d like to see on a shirt? Even like animals, or something, I’ll draw them and vector them and put them up for whoever wants to buy them, I’m going to keep the prices around 16 dollars, so yeah. (:

http://neosymmetrical.spreadshirt.com/ <- Link to the shop, right now I have requests from my friend and an ‘asexy’ series in there but ideas are welcomed all around.

Sooo..What would you like to see?

Well..this is different.

I came out to my family, my sister my nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, everyone mass email. So far I got three replies all were posative basically all “We love you and accept you, we’ll work on retraining ourselves to say your new name” They didn’t mention pronouns..but hopefully they got that too, uhm it feels weird after years of shuttning out my family to allow them back into my life, but my sister is going to help me get into therapy so well everything can start.

For months..I was in a way ‘forcing’ myself to handle my situation, distracting myself, locking myself away so that I wouldn’t have to deal with dysphoria or anything but..after coming out, I feel..open like dysphoria could sneak up and really hit me, being more open with myself and who I am..feels like a good thing, but also a horrible thing..but I think the good outweighs the bad. My brother in law is a pharmacist and has been for the past twenty or so years and was talking about how I should go to my doctor and ask about rearranging my kidney and heart meds, trying to put me on some medicine..I have written down but I can’t spell off the top of my head, and overall seeing if they book my on that medicine that it would also allow me to be on T, I also am going to go in for a possible thyroid problem, do any other FtM’s here have any sort of thyroid problem? Does it effect you taking T? or anything?

Overall..things are really great right now, great but..not..its strange, I’m happy, and In a way I hate dysphoria (now seeing how I feel more open now, and before I was mostly open when I was out in places where I couldn’t ‘hide’ so I was dysphoric when I went out but now..its also when I’m home)  but I’m happy that I have it and that I have people to go to? And that I no longer have to hide.

Its strange and I’m rambling.

What I don’t understand

neruka:

Is how Cis people who don’t KNOW anything about trans community get bitched at by Trans people for acting like how typically a person would. I’ll be honest, when I see a commercial for tampons the first thing that comes to my mind is NOT “THEY SHOULD ADVERTISE IT FOR TRANSMEN TOO CIS SCUM EVERYWHEREEE AHHHH” its “Why the fuck are they running and dancing, I would be curled up on my couch with some fucking Doritos.”

Like, seriously, are you really gonna scream and bitch at a 9 year old on the street who said that tampons are for “Mommy and her woman friends” 

You expect these people to make every little thing trans friendly, but so many of you guys think they have no right to ask you about the trans community (I don’t mean inappropriate questions, I mean like “So whats a binder?”) Make up your mind, or stop. 

Re-blogging this, been experiencing more issues with this sort of situation.

I really can’t handle this

My family, everyone who I’ve told offline about me being trans (Minus a handful of my really awesome open-minded friends, you know who you are <3) has not..really been negative but IMO they did something worse, they ignored the situation completely. At least the people who I’ve told and don’t agree refer to me as male <.<

But with everyone else who knows.its like.. they ignore it, I bring it up and they avoid the conversation..I get that they need time to adjust but this isn’t adjusting, this is..well ignoring the whole thing 

Suggestions anyone?
