protests, memphis tn 

the local protests have been organized really well. there's been barely any violence/chaos despite police antagonism, and consistent demands have been called for. major roads have been shut down, and the demonstrations have been effective at sending a message.

i guess i could see it playing into the white liberal habit of co-opting black-power movements

birdsite, blm, question 

is this an actual thing? aren't there movements that encourage white allies to have BLM fist pfps like the black-out on tiktok? I couldn't find anything else on this, so I'm not sure if it's a thing at all. I can't think of how using their image is appropriation, I mean its a symbol of solidarity and at most cynical, advertising, right?

there's just a conversational cadence that i don't really get often or ever and was one of the main reasons that i wanted to transition, because being a girl meant to me i could exist in communities where we weren't all talking about what media we were consuming or trying to argue while agreeing or one-up each other, and figure out what people trying to support each other in a conversation talk about

I want to get some girl clothes, but I have no idea what to get to put together a wardrobe. Any good styles / outfits to look into that look good on a 5'10"ish trans girl early on HRT?

Boosts appreciated.

The worst part of American politics is that we can't treat Trump like they did Mussolini... right after he lost power. :black_bloc_blob:

when you are talking about web dev on discord with people you are not out to and you suddenly get messaged by three different trans girls at the same time. 😂

Body image 

I know I shouldn't feel ill will towards people who are lucky enough to pass and transition well, but I feel so overwhelmly envious that I feel consumed by it.

Body image 

It just hurts, and I don't know how to deal with it, and I feel so vulnerable and inadequate. And I cry over the life I could have had if only I was born a girl.

Just looking in the mirror triggers intense dysphoria sometimes, and whenever I interact with trans people who pass I can be sent into existential crises in which I think the only salvation for my life is to drop out of college and get a loan and get FFS.

anyone have experience with waxing or threading their own eyebrows? i want to get my done, but i cant stand the slow pain of plucking them one by one. im also concerned about getting it done at a salon because of a) transphobia, b) they might not listen if i ask them to do it only under the eyebrow
