RECOMMENDATION: Trans Girl Diaries
Trans Girl Diaries is a webcomic that started off as a series of gag strips related to being trans, or trans issues. It evolved into following a consistent storyline, the main focus being Adrian Stone, an MtF transsexual. It also follows Namor Alpha and Michael Williams, two other trans characters as they live life in a world where strange things, not explainable by logic or science has begun to take effect.
I created this one because I sometimes feel the urge to reblog and comment posts but I don't want to spam my main blog.

I love how this makes more sense than doing 15 minutes of argumentative Trans 101 with an adult.

Love Tim soooo much.. White wine in the sun makes me tear up every time I hear it
When I started transition, almost 14 years ago, I imagined, I had this fantasy, that I would start taking hormones and in a few years, I was gonna blend in and no one would ever know that I was trans. I could just live my life undetected. And I knew a lot of trans folks like that, it was presented as the goal of transitioning.
When I realized that I wasn’t blending in effortlessly, I had to sort of to reevaluate things for myself. I had to begin to think about and I’ve begin to own this transgender thing. It became something that I had to say, "Well, this is who I am." (x)
The child I babysit sometimes is 5 years old. Last time I went to take care of him I noticed he has this awesome painting of the moon in his bedroom. He told me his mothers friend painted it. After he told me the artists name he then explained to me “She used to be a boy but she didn’t feel good so now she just takes medicine and it helps her to be a girl. She feels better”
It’s literally that easy to explain it to kids.
What Would You Do?: A transgender woman is insulted by a man at a diner. This is a really great segment they did where a trans woman, played by a real trans woman, is insulted and ridiculed by a man (played by an actor, of course) while she serves him at a diner. You’d be surprised at how many people butted in to defend her.
So much faith in humanity restored.
Fucking great how they supported her.
I may need to watch this show more often.
well, this is beautiful
That last guy though. He was going to sit there for as long as it took to make sure Kevin didn’t attack Carmen. He even said he had a good catholic upbringing. Catholics aren’t really known for their acceptance, and for him to not only defend her, but protect her, is just…wow.
Wow, crying when watching these. Strangers actually stood up for Carmen and protected her?
I’ve experienced being afraid that someone will attack or harass me, and if it would happen I would be totally dependent on strangers will to protect me. I keep out of people’s ways so there’s not much confrontation in my life though.
