Let’s make a trans zine! 

Now accepting submissions for
*TransMission(s)*, a collaborative zine by and for the transgender community. Our first issue will be under the theme of “Reclaiming our Narrative.” Our stories have been told by others for so long and consistently manipulated and warped to fit agendas and spread misinformation. When we speak with our own voice we back against these decades of gaslighting and lift each other up.

We’re looking for:
-essays
-short fiction
-poetry
-art
-comics
-photography

Any proceeds of sales will go to paying printing costs first, contributors second, and editors last.

Being generally positive and thankful for being trans without being Pollyanaish and erasing the struggle so many of us face.

That’s the space I try to occupy and maintain.

This is an excellent primer on voice feminization. It has a useful glossary and covers some key exercises.

I am often more enamored with the idea of a thing than the material reality of it.

Living as a woman is probably the most notable exception to this. The reality has actually surpassed my meager expectations.

Every day I am like “goddamn, I am so glad I did this,” as I find small details to enjoy.

But honestly, the biggest thing is just looking in the mirror, and seeing myself. I mean seeing the *actual* person I am, and not the person everyone else wanted to be.

Nothing could be better.

One of the best parts about putting “queer” in your bio is that people know what they are signing up for when they follow you.

Sometimes I wonder if liking my kink posts makes people feel like they are telling on themselves by doing so.

the idea of living with a partner comes with a host of challenges i can imagine having to navigate, for example, what if they walk in on me doing an image search for energy drinks anthropomorphized as hot girls as a source of style inspiration

One thing I love about impact play are the marks, bruising and soreness that continues for days afterwards.

Every glance in the mirror and every twinge of pain is a reminder of the experience—and for me it’s a reminder that someone loves me enough to hurt me in the ways I find pleasurable.

if there is one thing i have learnt. its never half ass your aesthetic. don't be like 'oh i need to tone it down so people don't think im weird' i guarantee you will look less weird if you just fucking go for it

Get you a girl who understands that dirty talk can be her telling you all the ways she would embarrass and torture you at your next birthday party.

Me, afterwards: “That was a really great story.”

Her: “Aw, it’s really sweet that you took that as a ‘story’ and not a ‘plan.’ It’s super adorable.”

an app where i can text all my friends and i dont have to cajole them one by one into using it only to have to install another app anyways the next time i make a new friend

you can't reform the police because the system isn't broken, its actually working at peak efficiency. you're just now realizing its intended purpose.

it really doesn't matter what the cops are or are not allowed to do. the entire system is a direct descendant of the thugs employed by slavers to keep their property in line in whatever gruesome way tickled them that day.

after the american civil war, these thugs were ""reformed"", put in uniforms, and allowed to continue their terrorizing of free citizens.

what we are witnessing is not a parallel to the past, it is exactly the same as it ever was albeit highly sanitized, glamorized, and deified.

slavery never ended

plantations never went away

overseers never found other employment

✨ the prison industrial complex is slavery in plain sight ✨

Drug war

Johann Hari's book Chasing The Scream is all about this.

Drug war 

@AudreyJune
It just forces people to try more desperately to conceal their addictions.

This is what this puritanical neoliberal society is always saying, "We already know you do (or are) the thing, but it is your job to keep it obscured."

People are arrested/imprisoned/killed for what the state deems "excess". Blackness, of course, is always already excess. Poverty is often already excess.

Whiteness is collective willful ignorance that supports a narrative of innocence.

Drug war 

From a Seattle Times article detailing the legislative debate over drug possession criminalization:

“Much of the debate on either side has focused on how to compel people with drug problems to get treatment, with some believing criminal penalties are necessary to force that to happen.”

It’s amazing to me that people really believe you can simply *compel* a person to solve their addictions...like, it has never ever worked that way.

Went on a hike today, which is really just code for “went out into the woods and took an embarrassing and painful spanking.”

Her, tugging at her crew neck t-shirt: I am just not used to this kind of collar.

Me: well, we can get you a different collar. 😏

Umm if anyone in Western Washington is having trouble getting a vaccine appointment, and has reliable auto transportation available, I *highly* recommend searching in Red Counties that are a bit of a drive away.

I just found a ton of appointments available in such an area.

I hate cleaning my own space. It often feels overwhelming, and while I generally enjoy being in a minimalistic room, modern organization usually means that my brain—which lacks object permanence—forgets that I own the things that aren’t in front of my own face.

This tends to mean that I live in clutter, and that clutter will build and make cleaning (vacuuming, dusting etc) difficult to accomplish. When I actually do clean it often means that the entire experience is both physically and emotionally exhausting. I have been known to be unpleasant afterwards.

Yesterday we rearranged about 75% of the furniture in our living room *and* I *didn’t* have a meltdown.

Was it being dommed into it? Was it having a lot of help? Was it having her frequently check-in on my emotional state? Was it knowing that support was available if I did have emotional trouble?

Yes.
