I was reading the Rolling Stone 2006 article that was unbelievably invasive about Lana's transition and was basically wiped from the internet for some reason and I had to take a break when they literally tagged in Bailey for comment on "autogynephiles"
Like they've had the same people fuck with them in the same ways as so many of us, holy shit
Anyway I finished reading this and they were directly saying Reloaded was a bad movie and that it was probably because Lana might be transitioning and it's amazing the level of committed hostility that they were ready to direct at everything a possibly trans person had ever done
For just generally existing while trans! For making a movie that was actually pretty good! How dare she
This is an ugly world
The whole article was so *off* like the writer's credulousness was so apparent and he seemed to be ready to believe anything anyone fed him about how the BDSM community allegedly has some ironclad code about not having actual relationships and just what the fuck
*watches one of the best action movies of all time* Actually, it sucks because a trans person made it :| *strokes chin*
the cisheteros are patheteros
Reloaded was an incredible depiction of the trans experience

It's still weird to think about there being a time before I had pivoted to trans stuff
Probably because that entire time up until that moment feels like a bad flat movie reel memory from somewhere else
Like before I started transitioning I sort of just assumed I'd otherwise keep doing all the stuff I was already doing and it wouldn't make a great deal of difference to that, but it turned out I didn't know how significant this new thing would end up being

The thing about sports records and taking them from cis women is like

Since everyone knows who's trans then we already know which cis women placed first, second, third
Am I missing something here because this seems extraordinarily obvious
Every article that has been hostile toward trans women competing with cis women in any sport has always made a point to highlight exactly who the trans women were, and exactly who placed first, second, and third among cis women

I was in so much constant pain from the toothache for days that I feel like I'm still coming down from the extraordinary adrenaline irregularities. It hurt so bad I was barely able to think other than being confused about how someone in this much pain could still be alive
Like the way you just feel your blood pressure rise and your heart pounding harder and your nervous system amping up in its entirety and almost making some high-pitched noise you can practically hear, it's...
It's the kind of thing that does lead to scream-crying in a parking lot after they tell you they won't be able to see you for days, tbh

"Neo just spams force-push in Resurrections" Yeah and do you understand it's because he wants everyone to just leave him alone and get away from him
I mean if you were him wouldn't you also be so sick of the matrix's shit? I would absolutely be like NO and STOP IT and KNOCK IT OFF *push*
he force-pulled those sais off the wall in Reloaded
