The new Netflix documentary headed by Laverne Cox on trans representation in media (good and bad) is out today.

It's called Disclosure.

You likely wont get it recommended to you unless you search for it.

Dealing with transphobic behavior in the wake of Rowling's comments 

Also since he's one of my coworkers, I have to get along with him, and if he couldn't reach the conclusion he did, I know I would end up resenting him and it would be difficult to work with him. Like this, I appreciate he saw he was wrong (not everyone can do that) and i can continue treating him like I have until now. So in the long run, all good. Thanks for reading, I needed to get this off my chest.

Because you see, I identify as non-binary. I even told that to him once I saw he finally understood my point. He said nothing to that - no "sorry you're making shit up" or anything. Just nodded. I'm used to being the only queer all round, but it's nice to be the respected queer for once. That doesn't happen as often as it should.
So yeah, it was bloody personal. And I'm sick and tired of keeping my mouth shut.

It fucking drained me. it's so hard speaking of this when everybody in the room is against you. And it's even harder to keep your mouth shut, even if it may have been wiser (less stress, less nerves, less feeling like a freak). But I'm so glad it led to something, that if nothing else I can at least form a solid argumentation that may with some luck convince.

So I say, "an Italian who tells you he feels like an Italian, speaks Italian, identifies with being an Italian but has a German surname and lives in the south slopes of the Alps is, in your eyes, an Austrian? Will you tell him that to his face - 'sorry you're from Austria?' Will you not respect his identity?"
He paused. Then he apologized to me and admitted he was wrong.

It was like this, he said "men who dont have the right genitals are not in my eyes men, no matter what they tell me", I said "so their identity is meaningless?", He said " I don't recognize it, but I treat them with respect as I would any woman", I say "they are not women, they're men. If they tell you who they are, will you disregard that and not respect who they are?" He said "I pay them respects but not as men". DUDE.

he just drilled on and nobody cared bc his opinion was the opinion is the opinion of the majority), the debate ended with him saying: "you are right. I'm sorry I made you so angry, my way of thinking was disrespectful".
I was angry to the point there were tears of rage in my eyes mind you. It took all my strength to show him that identity is a right regardless of what's in your bloody birth certificate

Dealing with transphobic behavior in the wake of Rowling's comments 

I got into a debate today, at work with a cis man, him saying "men who don't have penises aren't men", and while I knew it would be wiser if I just let it be and stew my anger in silence, I spoke up against it. After a half hour of heated arguing, all the co-workers telling me off (not the man who started it, even when I said several times I don't wish to discuss it any further,

Mmhmhmhmhhnhn i finished trespasser again....I want 4 so bad ;--; is there anyone on here in this hell too it's just so much emotions to work through on my own 🙈🔪🥚

the covid situation in CZ 

So uh...my country's on lockdown and everything :'') I still have to go to work but I can't imagine we can keep going there for long since we handle shipping of goods amongst other things and that's gonna get affected sooner or later. Not to mention some of my less intelligent colleagues returning from countries like Italy and ignoring the self isolation measures :''''''')

IDK if anybody might be into it here but I published Chapter 1 of a (Inquisitor/Cullen, AU in which Cullen becomes the rumored mage huner from DA:Origind), link below, also this is a REPOST bc of the PUBLISH DATE! AO3 why this headache with the drafts!!
👀 ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️

I forgot about that dumb thing ao3 does that if I save work as draft and post it later, it will appear chronologically with the date when the draft was created and not first in the tag with the publish date. Because my dumb ass took a week to post said draft (resp. come up with a title)...it plummeted into the void of oblivion :'''D ah well.

I could mention it's fem mage Inquisitor/Cullen 😂 and a wildly canon-divergent AU in which Cullen becomes the rumored mage hunter from DA:Origins.

Maybe you remember the chestnut jar photo I posted wayyy back in October?? So there they are - after months if germination in the fridge I finally pulled them out to enjoy sunlight. One chestnut and one acorn had sprouts already so I planted those but in just a couple days most of these sprouted too and SO FAST ;a; I'm humbled by this show of nature's growth and awakening.

"There is nothing more beautiful nor more mysterious than the stars in the sky. And look at us, we are dancing amongst them." - James Glaisher, Aeronauts

This is an interesting image for me, my first attempt at a composite (blend of 2 different exposures). The Milky Way was a standard 25-second shot. The foreground was an ultra-long 10 minute exposure to get some details in the landscape. Shot in Tso Kar, Ladakh in September.

body hair talk (and a pic) 

I found out is a thing. I didn't know there was a name for my laziness/not giving a fuck about shaving 😂 anyway! It took me a long time to accept the fact that I'm hairy in all the typically male places (a solid treasure trail as well as, you guessed it, black and coarse nipple hair). I haven't shaved my legs for 1,5year and my armpits for several months. Maybe I'll shave again someday...but having the "I can't go out like that" block missing is AMAZING.
