Pinned post


Hiya! Twitter refugee working in government tech as a developer of end user systems.
Recently hatched as non-binary so expect a lot of self discovery posts interspersed with tech talk.

anti-oppressive violence 

Huh, yesterday existential comics was just like "beat capitalists and rob back their lethal accumulation of wealth" lol: existentialcomics.com/comic/44

I have made a weird musical instrument. It is some kind of electronic just intonation kalimba I guess? With stars?

Doctors, bloodwork 

Update: GP was the most understanding, professional person ever. Even went as far as to congratulate me on the realization and recognize that this had to have been difficult but I was very brave. Took baseline hormone levels and wrote up a good recommendation. I can't state how relieved I am that this show is finally on the road.

Doctors 

Currently waiting at the GPs office, today I'll find out whether I will be referred to the regional Gender clinic or not. 🤞

Transition goals 

Tits. That's it.

Good music, dead singers and suicide 

My daily reading (Daily Stoic) reminded me of Chris Cornell and now I think I'll spend all day listening to his stuff. I mean, the list of musicians that I really admire and that one way or another checked out earlier is immense, but today I think it will be an Audioslave and whatnot day.

As an AMAB queer person, suicide statistics scare the shit out of me, even though I'd consider myself fairly "low risk". Please look after yourselves and those around you. 🙇

Ever see a picture that attacks you personally?

We're on the left lately. It'll flip soon.

Eye contact, beards, extremely bad makeup, selfies 

I definitely need to up my makeup - game but that's nothing that cannot be improved over time. First ever try using bits and pieces from the store and from what was already in the house.
Oh, and a "how it started / how it's going" before and after.

One month out and proud and what a ride it has been!

trans life, the eternal struggle 

the transfeminine urge to get rid of all body hair

vs

the feminist urge to not give a fuck about body hair

Personal worries 

I found out what I'll be wearing, mostly at least, and I feel relieved but also a bit disappointed in my reflection, but it also felt much more natural and ok than I had feared. Still, none of this would have been even imaginable just a short month ago.
Throwing it all on the wall and seeing what sticks, right? 😉 :heart_nb:

leftists, are liberals your allies? :boost_ok:

What do you mean, "I should have more personality traits than just being queer"?

Når er det egentlig man kan/skal/bør flagge regnbueflagget? Spør for en alliert cishet husstand. #xp

Personal worries 

Come Monday, I am going on a "date" with a long lost friend of mine that has been a very good support online in the time after I admitted to myself that being Cis was no longer an option, and this is the first time in like 10-15 years we will meet IRL, and I am nervous as hell and feel like an imposter and could really do with some tips on how to, like, come as myself.

Today's gender: Lumberjack

I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay
I sleep all night and I work all day

I cut down trees, I wear high heels
Suspendies, and a bra
I wish I'd been a girlie
Just like my dear Papa
