Today I was talking to B’s 11 year old cousin and I mentioned something about not being a family member and she said “you’re part of the family now!” and I swear to god I almost cried
|Me (to B):||You look like a beach princess|
|B:||You mean beach prince.|
|Me:||Men can be princesses.|
|B:||I guess if your gender identity isn't male, then yes.|
Good to know I guess. And I mean he’s a good and mature enough person that it isn’t going to have a big effect on us, obviously. But idkkkkkk
Told b I was thinking of getting my septum pierced….he was very very un enthused about it. He wasn’t mean- just wary. And hesitant.
And idk what to do because I would really like to? But his opinion means a lot to me. Harrumph.
Twelve. I realized recently that I started actively thinking about/trying to lose weight when I was TWELVE. And my concern with my weight probably extended a year or two before that. That’s disgusting.
This is actually a huge reason I want it…because if I don’t like it or (god forbid) it gets infected it won’t leave a noticeable scar like my nostril piercing
Mmmmmmm I’m thinking about getting my septum pierced? Because gospel-stitch got his done at a place here for $20…..and I love love LOVE the jewelry for it
i’m crying oh gosh
TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom.
Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.
This is important.
All packed and ready to go. A whole weekend with B’s family…what could go wrong?
