I’m writing a piece on trans* discrimination and I’m looking for some interested people to help out! I’ve worked extensively on issues of trans* healthcare which is one big mess of discrimination in itself but I was super interested in hearing from some people who are dealing with this directly (not just healthcare discrimination, all areas and all types). If you’re comfortable discussing any discrimination you’ve experienced with me that would be incredible and I’d appreciate it greatly. Of course your privacy and comfort level come first so all disclosure is up to you and anything that I write on your comments would not have your name attached.
If anyone would like to signal boost this too that’d be excellent! An added bonus if you’re trans* and living/have lived in Boston!

Anonymous asked: The whole topic of societal pressures on young virgin males(early20's) who aren't saving it for marriage to lose their virginity. With chivalry sadly not as strong as it should be today's modern young male finds himself in an awkward spot. Namely between lacking the confidence to fully "sell the idea of oneself" to another sexually, and the fact that society's ridicule isn't lifted or confidence given until he has had sex. Sorry if thats too rambly. does the inexperience really matter?
I’m trying to get this straight. Are you asking if inexperience matters when one has intercourse for the first time? As to the comment about “selling the idea of oneself”…. you’re not a commodity. You don’t have to “sell yourself” or the idea of you to anyone. In any case, please elaborate on this?

Anonymous asked: tw: sexual assault: i eventually did cut those two "friends" out of my life but now i'm worried that my psyche has been damaged, and that i am finding my kinks now in the ashes of the abuse i suffered. i feel very wrong about it even though i know that if i consented to sleep play beforehand in my present relationship, it would be okay. i'm feeling the urge to repress this kink all together.
So this is pretty complicated. I recommend trying to talk to someone about your experience… like you said, you’re worried your “psyche has been damaged.” In addition, consent always comes first and if you and your partner choose to extensively discuss exploring this kink, then make sure consent is clear. Honestly, I’m very unfamiliar with this type of situation, if anyone has something to add please do!
