I’m going back to university in one week
[TW: trans-hate, racism, TERFs]
And I don’t know how I’m going to survive being around all those cis people.
I have my dorm room assignment and it’s with a cisgirl. I’m going to ask if I can change to a single since I don’t feel safe around cissies. She might as well be a TERF. And I KNOW she will misgender me at some point esp. if I’m feeling non-binary rather than female or male that day. I also have a lingering fear that someone will steal my hormones and I do not want another scenario like last month when I went an entire WEEK without my E. THAT WAS TORTURE. I’m also worried the profs at this school will not only ignore my gender identity but also my racial identity as well. They will tell me I have white privilege when I don’t, and that in itself is extremely racist and problematic all over. At least I’m not taking a ciswomen’s studies class with that awful TERF professor.
If he/she/it is so bothered, maybe he/she/it ought not be wasting his/her/its money on university? He/she/it obviously doesn’t want to learn anything.
How to find out your gender:
1. Look down
who was the asshole that decided tattoos looked unprofessional
the generation that did is dying out so don’t worry
Possibly because willingly marring/defacing your own skin, and puncturing holes to stick jewelry in your body, are horrifying practices. Furthermore, piercings and tattoos belong to other cultures, and nobody belonging to a Western society has ever tried to explain the reasoning behind doing so besides “it’s cool”, which is no sort of an explanation at all.
So I wrote a short story and my mom is asking “when’s the next one coming out?” And then I explain to her the concept of “plot bunnies” that they’re bunnies because you can’t go grab one, you have to wait for an idea to come to you, like a bunny.
And then she asks, “so when are you getting your next plot bunny”
I get the feeling she wasn’t listening at all.
