I want to make a queer cafe. A safe zone with cute things like identifying braclets and name tags that come with drink and food orders. Menu items named things like “The Non-binary Bean” or “The Aceflux Cocoa”. Like queer poetry and book reading sessions meant to uplift and encourage the customers.

can you call it the gender beanery please

Welcome to TransClothesTrade!

transclothestrade:

Hello! Welcome to the blog, transclothestrade. If you can’t already tell what it’s for based on the URL, I’ll explain further.

Transclothestrade is a safespace for all trans people and gender variants to get clothes that fit their gender identity and help them feel more comfortable being them. We run mainly on people donating their old clothes, but sometimes when we (the mods) have extra cash, we’ll pitch in to help.

We’re still developing right now, but we’ll have our blog up and running smoothly before you know it! But we need a few things first, maybe you can help us.

What we need

1. Donations! We really need some people to submit to us with clothes to donate. We’ll have a guide for how to do your submission posts on the submissions page.

2. People to take the donations and make seeking posts! Are you a non-CIS gender variant who needs clothes? Come to us! We’ll have a guideline for making seeking posts on our submissions page.

3.Signal Boosts! We really need to get the word out about this thing we’re doing, so we’d really appreciate if you’d let people know about us! Reblog this post, share a link to our tumblr on your tumblr, or facebook, or other sites. Shout it from the roof tops!

4. A little patience. Things may not run the smoothest at first, we’re only two people. So please be patient with us when we inevitably goof a little.

We hope we’ll be hooking some people up with sweet new clothes very shortly!

How do I cope with misgendering in school? I'm nb and my pronouns are neutral and I have a preferred name but I can't bring myself go ask the teachers and staff to call me by them. I'm presenting as masculine but I don't want to be identified as a lesbian, as I am aro/ace. My anxiety gets in the way of everything and I don't know if I'll be able to cope. Any suggestions?

  • send your teachers e-mails rather than saying it face-to-face*
  • if your teachers call you a name p much everyone else will call you that name so that’ll make things a lot easier
  • ignore anyone who assumes you’re a lesbian because that’s gross and ridiculous ugh

*Dear [teacher],

I am going to be in your class [hour/period/module/etc. #] come this [semester/etc.] and would like to inform you in advance that my name on your roster will appear as [given name], however, I am transgender and my preferred name is [preferred name]. It would be indubitably beneficial to my comfort and safety in your class to be addressed in this way.

My gender pronouns are [gender pronouns].

When referring to me, you would say:

[Preferred name] went to the store. [He/she/they/etc.] bought bread, which is [his/her/their/etc.] favourite food. It now belongs to [him/her/them/etc.].

If you feel you will have a difficult time remembering my gender pronouns, you may refer to me by [alternate set of pronouns / avoiding the use of pronouns altogether].

Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

Crystals can form at the bottom of your vial of testosterone if it becomes too cold. Here are some tips for storing your T vials.
Store at 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) ex; bedroom, bathroom
Store out of direct sunlight. I store all my HRT paraphernalia in a cigar box. 
If crystals occur, warming and shaking the vial should redissolve any crystals.

Don’t hate former versions of yourself

So, I see this kind of thing a lot:

  • Wow, I can’t believe I used to like that
  • I was such a loser when I was 13
  • What was WRONG with me
  • I just found some of my writing from the 90s. How embarrassing. 

And here’s what I always want to say when people say things like that: You didn’t suck then. Your old writing is nothing to be ashamed of. Your youth is nothing to be ashamed of.

You were a person, and you were younger and knew less than you do now. That’s a good thing. It means you’re still learning.

But your younger self was worthy. Good. Deserves respect. And so do other young people who are similarly young and inexperienced, and who similarly have a lot to learn.

Can trans girls lactate?

Yes, actually, they can! AMAB people have the same mammary tissue that AFAB people do, it’s just far less developed - with the right kind of hormone therapy, it’s very possible. Here’s an interview with a trans woman who’s done it.

(I actually wasn’t aware of this before you asked, so I’m glad you did!)
