just trans kids fuckin living their lives pls
this is actually why I haven’t participated in any of the Trans Awareness Discourse because like ... idk a lot of it seems very good hearted and also I don’t really understand what good Awareness does
there’s Awareness (we ... exist?) and then there’s actually taking steps to rectify social systems so they don’t exclude us, which necessitates, to me, larger revolutionary projects and not being sort of glommed onto/absorbed into a deeply shitty and inequitable system
like, that is how you get trans MasterCard and “trans people can do war crimes too” and shit and like, no thx, leave me out of it

a reminder I just had to give myself, maybe helpful for you too: even with better resources than I’ve had in years, having done a shitton of hard work, mental health is a difficult thing to maintain when you have a bad brain to start with & then there is the stress of this year
I’m in a Very Large Depression right now, am maintaining and trying to keep things up but the weight of this year, especially losing seven whole people I cared about over the course of the year, just flattened me
it’s ok to fucking let yrself feel this shit and recognize it for what it is and work with it instead of run away from it. this is what I keep telling myself
