This documentary is dear to my heart for several reasons, and not only because I am featured as 1 of 6 public de-transitioners speaking out about medical harm. This film features beautiful and amazing men and women vulnerably sharing their darkest life experiences, leading……
In full disclosure, this film is hard for me to watch. It features self-portraits taken during some of my most confused and suicidal times before and after the medical process of testosterone and having a double mastectomy, when I was only 20 years old. Although I speak often on……
Early on in my de-transition, when I was 22, a kind friend asked me a rhetorical question when I was deliberating on if I should try to be public about my de-transition, as I was seeing a few others doing. She said, “would you rather be known for your art, or your trauma? Because……
Gratefully, this documentary allows my ambition be realized, as the producers appreciated both my personal trauma narrative, AND my artistic creations. What I am most proud of in this film, besides that all my friends and mentors were able to come together to blow the whistle on……
In a brilliant move, the producers paired this ode to the overstimulated with clips of young people online seeking meaning through abstract gender identity exploration and labels. Perhaps my favorite part is when I say “that’s supposed to be a symptom of autism” as the song……
My wounded younger self would be proud so know that someone cares not only for her story, but also her idiosyncratic and dry-witted copings with the trauma and grief. Not only will my inner child’s cries be seen and heard by thousands, but also her quirky silliness and bemused……
Yet… I do have friends, mentors, allies, supporters, and self-acceptance. I do have purpose, paths, joy, spirituality, and meaning. My goal with Affirmation Generation is to promote all of these, along with their shadows, to as many open-minds as possible, for me, my inner……
Please watch this, and share with all open-hearted people in your life. You can also directly support my voice and work by sharing my music, and art, and shopping for funky goods in my new Etsy shop, including my De-trans Awareness collection.

You know how weird it is to be used for an emotional affair then the person admits to it, manipulates you, says he wishes he could love you but doesn’t, and literally plays the song Addicted to Love off his phone to act like “this happens to everybody” to cover up his fault?……
And literally saying “you’re welcome for sticking around and teaching you a lesson from the universe about not being attached to people.” I wish I was making this up. He played Addicted to Love off his phone to manipulate me that it was my fault and not that he knowingly lied to……
You know how you do lsd with a girl on her birthday, flirt with her, then admit your domestic partner was in the room listening to your couples counseling session over zoom a month ago, and tell her you don’t love her, and how the universe is cruel that you came into her life but……

It’s the 2 year anniversary of being discarded by the sociopath. From which I still have ptsd symptoms every day. Evil is getting me down, especially remembering how I lost that battle with evil and still have a war to a fight. I survived it, but it really damaged me. ❤️‍🩹
That was my rock bottom, also. It was the culmination of everything previously traumatic and actually I’ve had the 2 best years of my life since then, due to getting my shit together. But it broke my heart, mind, and spirit as well, and I haven’t recovered.
I broke the cycle, took personal responsibility, and all I can say is that it’s a heavy burden to carry. It’s a weird thing, the anniversary of the trauma that shocked you into radical awakening. It’s like returning from war at long last only to fight the inner battle.

CPTSD and Friendship 🧵

I don’t think I’ve talked about this recently, but it’s really moving to me to have new friends who care about me, who I have mostly met on here. I was severely depressed and anxious in adolescence, and the ASD just went crazy in combo with the PCOS…
And I didn’t have friends for 4 years from 11-14. Like eating lunch in the bathroom type of loneliness. Throwing up before school. Not talking all day in school, only writing. My dog was my best friend type loneliness. This is also when I started experiencing abuse from family.
I wrote 2 novels about wolves that filled the void, along with began my parasocial infatuations for celebrities that I’d get obsessed with as my attachment figures. 90% of the trauma groundwork was laid during this time, and I had nobody, just my own imagination.

I am capable of love cherishing the soul in all synchronicity. If you aren’t bringing that energy to me in a romantic capacity, we have no business together. Anything less than what I can offer is unattractive to me. I am no longer available for the scraps I once tolerated. ❤️‍🔥
I love being in my own power knowing that I don’t need anyone’s bullshit in my life. I don’t play games, I don’t read rule books to people trying to play with me, to teach them. I just decline them and continue aligning with beautiful true loving energy in all forms.
I know the love letters I’ve written. Manifestos of the timeless spirit of a lover. I’ve never received anything in return but abuse and neglect. There are people out there who would write those letters too. I need those people, they need me. Looking to find them soon. 🙏
