  • Re: Gender Studies I

    Today was a better day; she got it and she understood.

    Also, I've had to explain to a few kids that "some women have a low voice and some women have a high voice. I have a low voice." They're like "oh. okay." My coworkers have been really quick to help me, because I think they KNOW.

        And if they know without me saying anything, the better. That being said, reinforcement is better for teaching new behavior than punishment. Good job, thank you, that was awesome, sprinkled in with a few double chocolate crunchy peanut butter mini-muffins... saying the correct pronouns can be learned.

          That's great!

          One of the things you'll have to try and remember is that most people have never worked with an out trans person before. Not everyone is automatically being malicious if they mis-gender you, and gentle reminders work best for new people making occasional mistakes.

            Iíve never worked with a transgender person either. I know itís a monumental ask, but grace and patience are needed. Most of us just donít know things or weíre so afraid of screwing up or even asking whatís proper. Most of us donít mean malice, weíre just dumb.

              Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                I've worked with two trans people to date, so I had my slip-ups early on with the first one since he did the hormonal transition after he'd been working there for a couple of years.

                  One thing I'm going to do is get a pronoun pin and wear it to work. And I'm learning too.

                  • I'm in a really supportive environment at my job. Told the Center Coordinator about my stepfather, and she gave me huge hug.

                    Also, dating is difficult when trans. Once they find out, they ghost you, or turn you into a fetish. Took myself off Grindr because no one wanted a relationship, they wanted to F me and leave.

                      Thankfully I got happily married before tinder, grindr, etc. became a thing, but isn't grindr the app for one night stands?

                        Some people have used it to find romance and a steady relationship. I did not find that. I found a whole bunch of males wanting to treat me as a fetish.

                          To be fair this probably has nothing to do with being trans. From what I have heard, Tinder and Grinder are about f-cking tonight, not finding anything lasting except maybe a venereal disease.

                              I do know of one person who ended up meeting his wife on Tinder.

                              I do know of a couple people who are in serious relationships because of Bumble (?).

                              Anecdotal, but it could happen.

                                And yet, 75% of the profiles I come across say "Not here for a one night stand"
