#ok to interact
I've been uh. recognizing myself. like in the mirror. a lot more recently which is... nice. I guess it's a good sign. spent like 2 years only knowing my reflection was me because "well, I'm standing here, it's a mirror. its gotta be." and now like... I walk past a mirror and see my reflection. not something I assume must be my reflection, but the real thing. I know it's me. Its.... refreshing. to not be afraid to look in a mirror. to see myself and know it's me. I think need to go to bed

“Being trans masc is wanting long hair but knowing you’ll get misgendered daily” at a certain point it doesn’t matter. People will misgender you, on accident or on purpose, pretty much all the time. I get called ma’am in person when i have a beard just right there in plain sight.
But at a certain time in your transition, you’re sitting at ihop and you have a full beard and you’re with your friends, and the waiter stumbles and says “she ordered the pancakes right?” It is going to be so comical. It will be so hilarious to you, the idea of your long hair being so feminine that it overrides your beard, your voice, etc. If you want to have long hair, just do it. If you’re already going to be misgendered every day, why not grow your hair like you want to.

The amount of hate polyamorous people receive is beyond sad to see. Like?? Y’all harass, mock, and blatantly ignore these folks because...they have more than one partner they’re in a relationship with (all of them fully aware of each other and are fully consenting adults to this relationship) and that’s a bad thing...why??
You’re telling me three grown adults, all in love with each other and who are dedicated to having a fulfilling life together (even to the point of wanting marriage and children), are ‘cringey’ or ‘toxic’?
Nah... you wanna know what the problem really is: you grew up with Western, Christianized ideals of what ‘love’, ‘marriage’, and ‘romance’ should look like (the entire abomination that is the ‘nuclear family’ is a great example) and care more about assimilation into the greater cisheteronormative society to seem like the ‘normal’ or ‘acceptable’ lgbt people.
Like...that’s it. That’s literally what all this ‘discourse’ boils down to and it’s genuinely pathetic. Y’all purposely conflate the gross idea of polygamy (which is RELIGIOUSLY motivated and misogynistic as all hell) with being polyamorous (which is when grown adults are fully aware of each person in their polycule and have genuine bonds with each of their partners).
These are obviously two different things but anything to appease the cishets so y’all can look like the ‘normal’ lgbts, right? /s

I’ve created an ace spec podcast on YouTube called Hues of Ace… new episodes every Wednesday for now (about 10-20 minutes long for each)
I waited 3 days to post this as I’m really nervous about it 😬 😅
Here’s the first episode (posted on the 7th July 2021)

Bleach is good because Ichika and Kazui are like both, well raised children so far.
Bascially, Bleach has so far averted the trend of the original heroes becoming bad parents after the series ends.

Gooooosh😩😩😩 I’m so in LOVE with confident transmasc folks who do titty-out looks😍🖤🔥
Honestly, it gives me so many positive gender vibes whenever I see a transmasc person not wearing a bra or binder and like...either wears some pasties or just lets those puppies off the leash to roam lol 😂 Also, my gender euphoria SKYROCKETS when I see transmasc folks doing this while being SUPER hairy from being on T for a while??? LIKE??!? CONFIDENCE GOALS🙌🏼❤️😉

I had such a fucked up and vivid nightmare, I’m still reeling from it.
A man was naked and tied to a chair while someone was torching his stomach. I could smell the skin burning and listen to his gargled cries as the cloth gag in his mouth was wetting from his spit.
The people burning his skin were making an odd symbol, and laughing as the man struggled and begged.
I could feel the concrete ground beneath me, we were in a secluded area that reminded me of a mechanics shop. The air was humid and putrid with the smell of copper and burning flesh, and I remember the group asking me what we needed to do next.
They looked at me. ME. And asked what I wanted to do with the still very much alive and sobbing man. I don’t remember much about what I said but soon I see them pouring gasoline around a bunch of cars after slashing the mans chest open.
They light a match and escort me out of the place, and I remember hearing the caving in of the metal and bricks falling.
I don’t know WHY I had that dream. I don’t like it. The faces of the men were blurred but the man in the chair was visible. Older, maybe 45 or 50, stubble on his chin, a bit portly, tanned skin, and I remember seeing the marks and sun damage on his arms from the duct tape holding him to the chair.
It felt so real, like I had just witnessed an actual murder. I don’t know how to feel honestly.

My infographic about substitute beliefs is making the rounds in kin communities again. It has me thinking about some things.
Their tags are essentially reinforcing my theory that "kinning" is essentially a less-dissociative form of "introjects."
Both involve feeling intrinsically tied to a character/idea due to shared (or perceived-to-be-shared) ideology, history, trauma, etc.
The difference is that (as far as I can tell) even if you kin something, you still know that you're you. There's still that anchor to "who you are" outside of the kin. In other words, kinning is an aspect of an otherwise stable identity.
Introjects don't have that anchor--there's no solid "real self" to come back to. It's more dissociative, disorienting and potentially upsetting. The sense of identity is entirely shaped around the idea or character, with no feeling that they have ever been anyone/anything else.
It seems similar, stemming from the same concept. In much the same way having different "parts of self" is dialed up to an 11 in DID/OSDD.

I’ve gotten more followers so it’s about time I properly introduce myself! My name’s Ari! I’m a non-binary lesbian (my pronouns are she/they). I love all things theatre, and I created this blog just for some sapphic positivity :)
