The song that I am listening to while writing this post:

Listen by Sent By Ravens

Write a haiku about being trans

I am confined inside

Not as a girl, or a boy

Just a bit of both

Hello Time Bomb by Matthew Good Band

Write out something positive about yourself using the letters of your name. Ex. Your name is Bob so B-Beautiful O-Outstanding B-Boy.

I have a few preferred names thta I go by, but I’ll use the name that I’ve been going by for a while.

Joker

Aware

Self-Expressor

Pleaser

Expressive

Revived

I had to look up some words because I had thought of more negative words than positive.

Day 28 – 30 Day Transgender Challenge

Song that I am listening to while writing this post:

Cigarettes by Noah Gundersen

What is something you have to do everyday or else you feel like your whole day is off if you don’t do it?

As many people will say, Music. If I don’t listen to music for atleast an hour or two before I sleep at night, I feel thrown off. It’s something I do to release emotional tension. I don’t know why, but it’s something I’ve been doing for the majority of my life and it’s a routine for me and whenever it’s broken and or thrown off, I get agitated and angry.

What goals do you have?

Goals:

1. Therapy.

I am currently unemployed and have been for the past short while and I want to start finding a therapist that I will want to stick with and battle some demons that I’ve been struggling with throughout the years.

2. Job.

I have recently signed up with a company to help people with learning disabilities find and keep employment. I feel as though I can benefit from this program and I actually really want to work right now, whether it be part-time or full-time.

3. Move out.

I have never moved out of my parents house. I’ve lived in the same house my entire life and the only time I’ve lived anywhere else was on and off in past relationships, but it was more so just visiting. I want to save enough money to move out.

4. Gender.

I  have been using this time to figure out what I want to do transitioning wise. I really don’t know what I want to do anymore, but I’ve been taking Zinc and Magnesium to help boost my Testosterone levels.

Day 23 – 30 Day Transgender Challenge

Song that I am listening to while writing this post:

We Don’t Eat ( Adventure Club Remix ) by James Vincent McMorrow

What stereotypes are put on trans people?

Personally, being a Transman, I’ve been asked ” If you’re dating a girl, doesn’t that still make you a lesbian?”

Or, “You’re too feminine to be masculine, why do you wear dresses and paint your nails?”. 

I think that people who aren’t educated or just simply don’t understand what being Transgender means, they may still think that we have to be solidly one gender, that we can’t be fluid, or still embrace our femininity or masculinity of our biological sex.

You Call That A Knife? This Is A Knife! by Capture The Clown

Your views on the cis-gendered community?

Cis people are cis people. I don’t like that cis people are known as ” normal ” and Transgender people and non-binary identifying individuals are seen as otherwise. 

I don’t have much to say about this.

If you’re religious how do your views effect being trans? If you’re not religious what about your family religions?

I used to believe that I was religious because at one point I was, I just started to become lost. 

I personally didn’t enjoy being told, not straight to my face by the people at church, but infront of me that being gay is wrong.

I stopped going to Church a few years ago. My parents still go and believe in God. They don’t except me being Transgender and will not support me in transitioning although I practically have been transitioning, more so emotionally.
