Artwork, Boost, Support
So the photos from the first in a series of performative photography is complete!!!!!
I am using Afro-Indigenous spirituality and cultural markers from Puerto Rico to confront the unseen qualities and actions in monuments and sites in Barcelona that directly relate to Puerto Rico's early colonial history.

transphobia, medical industry
I keep seeing and meeting trans people who have a much easier experience of medically transitioning than me - I had to do the full year RLE before I was permitted to begin medical transitioning.
I think it’s awesome! Hell yeah! Fuck doctors! And fuck all the other people who had it rough and decide that it should be that way for everyone!
animal farm, politics in that vein, anticapitalism
But it sure does say a lot about the capitalists who fucking worship this book that they don’t realize that they’re meant to be the lazy, cruel, and eventually dead drunkard who starved his employee-analogues, and the vile local farmers who praise the pigs for their brutality and kill their own employee-analogues???
animal farm, politics in that vein
A lot of capitalists see Animal Farm as being super pro-capitalist, but the message is not “capitalism is good” more than “everything always sucks no matter what and it will never get any better no matter what” (in fact the cool and wise self insert character says pretty much exactly that...)
I don’t think that’s a good message either, but he was pretty clear he saw the “boss” figure in the “capitalist” system as an autocrat, too...
NSFW. Asking for info & resources about some of the lesser-known options for bottom surgery for FTM & MTF spectra, so that I can create a sex ed infographic about them all. (OK to RT)
I want to draw some sex ed infographics about bottom surgery options for trans folks on the FTM and MTF spectra that includes lesser-known surgical options that already exist in real life, like nullpatches, vagina-sparing metaiodoplasty, phallus-sparing vaginoplasty, and so on.
This isn't the sort of thing I normally draw (I'm a PG rated artist), and so I'm honestly not sure how comfortable I'll feel about completing this project, but I'm really concerned about how we trans-folk are all insufficiently informed about the full scope of our transition options. I haven't seen illustrations like this anywhere. I'll make the project public domain when it's done, so folks can translate it and put it in wikis and stuff. I'm figuring it could help make for happier trans folk in the future.
In order to draw that, I'll need a lot of the right kinds of resources. Would you folks please send me links-- with the links neatly labeled with type of surgery and CWs, so I've got a heads-up about what I'm getting into if I click-- that have descriptions and pictures about these other lower surgery options, which would be useful for making such diagrams?
changed insurance plans, which meant changing pharmacies.
the new pharmacy is better than the old one! the line is much shorter and the staff don’t look at me funny. and my medication is cheaper so far! I was able to get all my prescriptions transferred too and only one needs a prior auth!
so hopefully this can be an easy transition and not horrible...
unfortunately my therapist is still out of network, but she’s not too expensive
Today I got a 70$ pair of shoes in good condition for 4$ because the soles are cracked in one spot.
I’m amazed at how much people don’t fix things... some things are hard to fix, but given the material you’d be fine supergluing these with a gel superglue honestly. A little sanding to hide and even the seam, and they’re good as new.
Another lesson in don't believe white people's idea of history, b/c oh hey they're full of shit. Also, whites make up history for political reasons
internalized ableism, delusions
Working on my latest novel has made me realize how bad my internalized anti-psychotic ableism is, because I pretty much picked the character’s delusions from ones I’ve previously had and moved past, but I feel so ashamed to write it and even worse about the idea of sharing it...
I don’t really have a good answer, but I’m upset about it. :(
