controversial leftist take 

I mean why are you a leftist? Because you envision a better way to organize society, right? You wanna improve material conditions. And you honestly can't see that mechanisms of authoritarian power such as several years of compulsory military service, closed borders, mass surveillance, supression of freedom of information and political protests, and all that other stupid bullshit directly infringes on your material quality of life?

mh ~, food, prescription meds, trans related 

I felt consistently awful for the past week and then I drank some pickle juice and had so much energy that I cleaned up the desk in my room that's been a trash heap since I moved in over a year ago.

spironolactone really screws up your electrolyte balance, huh. I keep asking for bicalutamide, but the doc says it's too dangerous. I'm angery. I would gladly trade the ability to drink alcohol for not having to deal with sodium deficiency.

musings on trans healthcare 

I wonder why I have never met nor heard of a medical professional who is themselves trans in the field of transgender health

rant about lesbianism 

so to wrap up: I'm not a lesbian because the lesbian community isn't for people like me, even if I did want to join. but, while the bi and pan communities are dramatically more inclusive of trans gender deviance, and I fit the technical requirements, I don't vibe entirely with bi or pan. maybe I'll come around one day

btw, this also circles back around to how lesbians and gay men don't want to date bi people. but that's a discussion for another time.

rant about lesbianism 

though I'm certainly one to talk. I have a cis (albeit gender-non-conforming) partner. but she's pan.

which brings me to: the one exception I see with any regularity is that bi and pan cis folks are willing to date trans people

rant about lesbianism 

as I'm out longer I keep seeing more and more reasons why T4T is so prevalent. cis people just refuse to date trans people

I'm not going to say it's *impossible* for cis lesbians to be trans allies or nonbinary allies, but it sure fucking feels that way

rant about lesbianism 

secondly, while I have a preference for women (and enbies!) there are some men out there I find attractive (moreover, gender is bullshit in the first place, there's hot people of all genders). this disqualifies me from being a lesbian by most counts. I did feel attracted to the "bi lesbian" identity to signify that I vibe with lesbian culture and history, but it has largely been torn apart by the lesbian community for the implication that a lesbian could date a man.

a good thread by @stella which I largely agree with on why genital preference is bullshit

rant about lesbianism 

I'm nonbinary and don't think of myself as a woman. Because I'm also AMAB, as a consequence I feel entirely unwelcome in lesbian spaces. I'm not a woman, so by elimination I must be a man. Neither do I intend to get bottom surgery, giving cis lesbians the excuse to refuse to date me or other folks like me (or even pre/non-op binary trans women, for that matter) by hiding behind "genital preference"
