Today's theme seems to be, rather hilariously, right-wing chuds getting upset that Easter's been stolen from them.

Eh, I'm not right wing but I'd get peeved seeing 'Easter eggs' get replaced by 'Gesture eggs' too ahaha.

Easter is just so much syncretic nonsense, anyway. A bunch of blokes on the 4thC AD decided to break from the Jewish tradition by reinventing the rules of the lunar/solar calendar, and then got their travelling salesmen in various other countries to rebrand the various rites of spring to fit into their own meme.

And associating a rabbit of indeterminate gender that lays multicoloured eggs (with sacharine shells) with trans issues..? It trivialises the latter, but doesn't seem any more ridiculous than any other else out there...


...we're gonna need a bigger calendar!

I admit it's been a while since I've poked my head into this thread, but I got curious. How is everyone?

Mostly decent. For the most part working on my book series and such.

Good, getting more confident in my body now. Which is to say I'm not hunching over to cover up when I'm at home.

Years of being fat and ashamed of my body gave me that as a natural response to moobs. Except I don't have moobs.

My hair's also returning, the minoxidil/low testosterone/both/Jesus-blessing-me-with-hair seems to be slowly working, the super fine and blonde hair on top of my head's darkened and the bald patch is slowly filling in from the sides. With luck I'll be able to grow my hair out by the end of summer with a barely-noticeable bald spot. I'll need to get bangs though, widow's peaks run through both sides of the family.

Please do not quote me

The straight married author's  book isn't about "whatever gay" things. It's banned here and basically in (much of) the state....

I'm exhausted; one of the reasons I hide.... Article from 2022 (because video on news); there are many more.

Against book bans. Want a book banned? You need at least a B+ book report citing it. Problem solved.

I finally got my ears pierced today!  I have a tiny metal sphere on each lobe.  Subtle but pretty, the kind I always imagined I would have "if I was a girl".

In fact I got the strangest sense of deja vu from the experience.  I had to honestly ask my mother whether I had piercings when I was young, somehow (my memory of being a teen is VERY spotty sometimes).  I guess I'm either remembering clip-ons which I left on too long, and/or a friend in high school who talked in detail about hers.  I was so fascinated...

I didn't realize until afterwards that the studs have to stay in for several months (the piercer thought I was joking, heh) but that's okay.  I like these.  I have a pair of pink triangular ones as a... statement, but I'm mostly excited to wear a pair of fairies lounging in crescent moons.  They remind me of my NB pendant.
The piercer complimented my pendant :)  After the piercing, even, so it wasn't just a distraction thing (I'm so cynical).  It was nice.  I was in my favorite tank top, too.  I look pretty great.
People were nasty to me yesterday but that doesn't matter anymore.  Most people don't care or are nice.  I'm not alone.  I'm fine :)

I might still be a little dazed from all the hot sun and endorphins, but just, I feel really good.  My ears feel so RIGHT, like they've been pierced since childhood and reality has just finally caught up.
(not that I'm poking them.  I wanna but I'm not)

I had my left ear pierced when I was a child, and then the butterfly part of the stud got stuck inside my earlobe, which was a touch of distress. Presumably because the butterfly was too small.

I remember sitting in class picking at what I thought was a scab on the back of my ear and then pulling out a piece of metal :o

I still have a teeny wee scar for my troubles.

I've... wanted to get it done for a while, but only if I could get a tiny pair of bone dice (several decades to over a century old, they've been in the family for a long while) turned into a pair of earrings (probably wrapped in copper or brass or bronze wire... whatever's in that general color direction but still easy on the ears), which never really fell through.

One of these days I'll both find wherever I squirreled those things away and actually go through with it, heh.

I was born already having an ideal number of through-holes in my body, tbh.

It would be an interesting funeral request, if all else fails.

That would be super cool to see, honestly.



In other news: I'm still a crumpled ball of confused dysphoria, but that's not new, so :-\ . Glad to see other people in this thread are dealing with it well, at least.
