I’m Non-Binary!

It’s been been a very long journey. Before I knew what Non-Binary was, I tried calling myself male, later female. Neither felt right. Now I feel happy having figured out this part of myself, and to share it with the world!

I’m also using hormone therapy to shape my body to better match my gender. Specifically, I’m trying to grow breasts! It's something I've wanted my whole adult life! I've been wearing silicone prosthetics all year, and I gotta say, I really dig the way I look!

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only can do that.

Really confused why this is even here. Why do they need to know? If it's for statistics, why is this the only such field?

Yes, with Biden's inauguration we're going back to the status quo.

THE STATUS FUCKING QUO WAS THE PROBLEM THE GAVE US TRUMP!!!

We're still dropping like flies from a fucking plague, cops are still shooting people in the streets, people are still being evicted, white nationalists are still organizing openly ....

Biden being inaugurated hasn't changed a goddamn thing. Quit acting like a miracle has just occured.

Biden isn't the best. I would've preferred Bernie, whom I voted for in the primaries. Biden, however, at least seems to speak the right speeches, and has hired the right people, to foster a society which might treat me like a person, rather than the one Trump fostered which dehumanizes me and tries to wring out as much profit from me at it can before killing me. I have hope for the future once again.

Trump is out and Biden is in!! πŸŽ‰πŸ₯³πŸŽŠπŸ’ƒ

Now I can safely return to disliking Biden without seeming like a fascist.

Sadly departing PKWARE.

I'll always be thankful for what I learned, the amazing people I had the privilege to work alongside, and the perspective I gained working with products of such a legacy.

Best wishes to all! Here's hoping I can find somewhere just as as great next 😁

Nearly 30 years of self-discovery behind me, and God knows how many ahead.

Today marks a major milestone in my life - today, I got an official copy of my birth certificate, showing my sex as "X"

This is a huge moment for me! My legal status as a person finally reflects, in a crude way, how I feel about myself!

I'm going to celebrate today as X-Day, since I'm officially a certified X-Man! πŸ₯³
I hope y'all have a wonderful day too!

I'm filling out an Amazon interview assessment thing, and it's almost entirely these really reductive false-equivalences. Absolutely disgusting.

P.S. I have no plans to work for Amazon, just practicing my interview skills.

Oh my gosh y'all!!

I saw my reflection while doing laundry and I was like "feck!! I don't look masculine! I don't have to pretend to be masculine!!"

I’ve made a new post to my blog! This one’s about pronouns, and includes a new interactive control to help communicate my thoughts. Enjoy!
