polerin: My shadow on a wall (shadow portrait)
I've had these conversations many a time.

I'm not a self narrating zoo exhibit. If you want to ask me a question, that's cool, I am not to the point where I hate talking trans stuff with people. Just.. Go do the damn research yourself first if it's about the effects of hormones on your body, or any of the other basic stuff that is out there. It's actually not all that hard to find, you just need to Google a bit. Trust me.

Don't think I speak for all transpeople though, because trust me, I don't. I don't even have a normative story, all I've got is myself. If you're curious about *my* experience, and how it deviates from the norm, I'm OK with that. Just... know the "norm" first.

What kills me is that everyone thinks they have the right to ask, in the most belligerent ways, at random fucking times. And I'm the type of person that jumps on it.

And yes. I'm perfectly aware of the hypocrisy of my grumping at this... I know I've been guilty of it in the past, and will likely be guilty of it in the future. Privilege does that... It's something that I have to work on just as much as anyone else does.
