I am happy to announce that I just got my letter for top surgery!! I have spent years working on this goal and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m in the process of contacting a potential surgeon and evaluating my payment options. I have called my insurance company several times and I am hopeful that they will cover 80% of the cost (I am prepared to appeal when the time comes), but I still need to cover the remaining cost as well as travel expenses.
If you have anything to spare, please consider helping me reach my goal of $5000. I know times are tough, so if you don’t have anything to give, please help spread the word by sharing this on your blog. Thanks for your help, you’re an awesome human being!

I just launched the official GoFundMe page to raise money for my top surgery! After years of living as male, I am mentally, emotionally, and physically ready to complete my transition. I just submitted all of my paperwork to the surgeon and I will know if my insurance will cover any of the procedure in about six to eight weeks.  If my insurance does agree to help, they will cover 80% of in-network expenses, so I am raising money to help cover the remaining costs.

If you have anything to spare, please consider helping me reach my goal of $5000. I know times are tough, so if you don’t have anything to give, please help spread the word by sharing this on your blog. Thanks for your help, you’re an awesome human being!

Cis people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:

  • Redheads
  • The entire state of Rhode Island
  • Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
  • Pacific Islanders
  • Celiac Disease
  • Jewish people
  • Australia

Nope!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.
