The Gender Construction Kit has come on a long way since the last time I visited. If you’re looking for info and resources on transitioning in the UK then it’s a good place to start:

“An authoritarian party, which aims at capturing power to impose its ideas, has an interest in the people remaining an amorphous mass, unable to act for themselves and therefore always easily dominated... But we anarchists do not want to emancipate the people; we want the people to emancipate themselves.”

trans feelings, hindsight, 1/n 

It’s true for some people, but I didn’t “always know” I was trans. With hindsight, though, there’s stuff I missed, or ignored, or explained away over the years that I can interpret as trans feelings now, and I think it might be helpful to write about that. There’ll be a little biography involved but I’ll try to keep it to a minimum.

trans, uk, private hrt cost 

(Private hrt cost me about £800 to set up, in two instalments, plus another £150 every six months for monitoring appointments. They have a shared care agreement with my GP so prescriptions and blood tests are on the NHS. That’s not a negligible amount of money, but it’s possibly more affordable - or crowdfundable - than you might think from hearing about American medical bills.)

I wrote a novel about a bunch of queer, neurodivergent TTRPG nerds and their portal fantasy adventure.

It's cosy and strange and I think you might like it!

Got a response to my complaint :transknife:

Still wishing for the 'Mea Culpa' option that someone came up with for social media systems whereby instead of deleting something or making a reply people might not read you can flag a post you made in the past as wrong in some way so people can clearly see that you made a mistake.

Today’s card is the Nine of Swords. Sometimes it’s just tough - fear, anxiety, feelings of doom. It can be overwhelming. But if you’re feeling that way then remember you’re not alone, and even just talking through your anxieties with someone you trust can help
