This is big news!
Also, if available in your state: Plume is a trans run healthcare service that arranges HRT and keeps track of when you need bloodwork etc. All it took was a few intake forms, a video call with a doctor, and then I was prescribed hormones. Very simple. There is a 99 membership fee, but it takes care of all of your stuff in one place that was usually be multiple doctors. I recommend it.
Word of advice: if possible find therapists who are trans themselves.
My therapist is a trans man and not only was he willing to give me the referral I needed after just one visit, he’ll do it for people who just ask.
I’m a busy man. Got two caution signs to remind me to slow down sometimes. Got a vibrating megaphone. Clocks. Radiation. Four goats. Got half a tank of simple columnar epithelial tissue. 60% through my day. Half a tank of gas. And it’s only 10:50.
concept: letting bisexuals who aren’t men talk about being attracted to men and having crushes on men without having to add some self-deprecating “oh, how unfortunate!” caveat to it because tumblr has made them internalize the idea that liking men “taints” them somehow and makes them feel like they should be apologetic if they ever mention it.
What are your thoughts on the Wayfair conspiracy theory? Personally I think it's horse shit and is hurting a company for no reason
I think it’s an interesting conspiracy theory given the current climate of this country. There’s this moral panic about child trafficking/pedophiles going around in this country (and the world). And that concern itself is not unfounded (epstein, hollywood, children disappearing etc). So, I completely understand why this theory gained the traction it did, and honestly I think its a good thing.
I also don’t give a fuck about a company that supplies furniture to migrant detention centers (SOURCE) so I’m not really sympathetic to their woes lol.
Snopes debunks this theory on the grounds that there is no hard evidence, which is true and also the proof I am personally waiting for. Personally I think all conspiracy theories should be contrasted against the climate in which they came up as well as facts/evidence. So, its important to understand WHY this unfounded conspiracy theory gained the traction it did.
if you see someone being interrupted in a conversation, acknowledge them, don’t let them be pushed to the side. if you see someone lagging behind, walk beside them. if someone is being ignored, take the step to include them. always remind people of their worth. it hurts when it feels like you’re being forgotten. that small gesture can mean a lot.
thinking about how good friendship is…..like two people just like each other….and choose over and over to spend time with each other……quite special how diverse human relationships are..every friendship is special and u cant be close friends with everybody…..for some unknown reason certain people just enjoy each other..and i think we take for granted how fantastic that is
