Hi and welcome to the Trans Women’s Survivor Network! We are a project dedicated to creating space where trans women and all CAMAB trans people can discuss our experiences with violence and abuse together.
There’s a huge culture of denying this space to trans…
please recommend me non-fiction informative trans lit to give my mom for christmas. thanks tumblr.
Today I am officially two years on testosterone.
Needles are still scary shit but that’s manageable.
I get to live my life as who I want to be and I grow every day. My facial hair is still slowly growing which is nice to look froward to. I have a stunningly smart and witty partner who supports me in my genderfluidity. They are there for me when I feel weird in my own body or when I struggle with darker shit.
We spent the day together. I finally got them out of the house in the afternoon and we went to used bookstores. I bought Lirael by Garth Nix, Hangsaman by Shirley Jackson, and The Book of English Magic by Philip Carr-Grom and Richard Heygate. My partner bought me Inventory by Dionne Brand, which I am SUPER FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT.I devoured that book last year, read it five or six times in two weeks, and cried.
I remember being pre-everything and reading tumblr blogs by trans men. I was so wistful and envious.
This is a shout-out to that past self of me and to anyone pre-everything trans folks who are stewing in their own dysphoria. You can make it.

Mission Statement: MOTHA is dedicated to moving the hirstory and art of transgender people to the center of public life. The preeminent institution of its kind, the museum insists on an expansive and unstable definition of transgender, one that is able to encompass all transgender and gender non-conformed art and artists. MOTHA is committed to developing a robust exhibition and programming schedule that will enrich the transgender mythos both by exhibiting works by living artists and by honoring the hiroes and transcestors who have come before.
Pending the construction of MOTHA, the museum will function as a series of autonomous off-site experiences around the San Fransisco Bay Area and throughout the world.
I have no patience today for the shit people do to trans girls. I am not in the mood to educate or be the role model transsexual. I won’t also be the victim or the poor minority with no voice. If you don’t give us space to vocal our own narratives and desires, without subtitling with your queer theory or medical pathological labels, I will destroy you. I am going to take my space, I will be at your party and your protests screaming my own struggles until I am heard. I will not wait peacefully to discuss, amend or have your understanding. Fuck you. I will drink your blood and will carve my words into your flesh with my teeth. I will get what has been denied to us or I will destroy you.
I have been practicing walking around people while shirtless to practice getting stared at ‘cause I’ll be working with kids all summer. None of the staff has yet dared to ask about my scars.
I have no energy to get pissed off that I even need to do this. I feel like I’ve succumbed to the necessity that being stared at is the reality of my life.
No, you know what, that’s definitely me trying to ignore/deflect/deflate my angry feelings.
It makes me want to punch people in the face. I shall satisfy myself by giving really snarky answers and STARING RIGHT BACK.
