Hey! Congrats on the coming out. I know how tough it is. I've helped a handful of friends through it and I'm SO glad your family took it so well and are more concerned about your happiness than your genitalia. You're awesome and brave and I'm glad your life is coming together for you <3
Thank you my friend!! That’s really freakin’ awesome of you to help others out with this kind of thing. Yours & everyone else’s messages are giving me so much confidence and I’m beyond grateful for all of it.
I am proud of you, you adorable little thing. I wish you all the luck in the world on getting what you truly want from your life. I'm also really proud of your parents for being that supportive because I know a lot of people that would flip their shit over something like this. You all get big hugs and lots and lots of love. <3 I also demand periodic updates about this because I wanna know how you're doing. k,loveyou,bye. ^_^
Thank you, darlin’. I seriously appreciate you always being here to cheer me up & brighten my day. My parental unit appreciates it too! Love & hugs right back, always.
Just wanted to say, I remember you were one of the first people I followed on here and you're always so nice and while I don't see you on my dashboard for awhile sometimes, I really like your blog and you and yeah :) (I have no idea where that was supposed to go but hope you smiled :) )
I certainly smiled, thanks so much - I appreciate your message & liking my blog enough to stick around! You rock :}
I think you're so brave coming out and saying what you want. I wish I was sometimes. You've grasped what you wanted and you've told the world, you're brave and you're beautiful and I wish you every single piece of luck on your journey to go exactly where you want to go! Keep us all updated because we love you. lj ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you so unbelievably much - the amount of encouragement & support I’ve received from everybody is staggering, I’ve never felt so uplifted in my life. I will certainly update periodically while going through my transition. I hope that someday soon you can muster the courage speak your mind, as well - I know it’s easier said than done, but I have faith that you can do it!
June 7th, 1942: Edward Hopper completes his best known painting, the seminal Nighthawks. When asked by a Chicago Tribute reporter about the philosophical meaning behind the diner having no clearly visible exits Hopper responded, “Shit. Fuck. I did it again. Goddamnit. Fuck. Not again. I did it again. Shit.” and slammed his hat on his leg.
how does this only have 150 notes
I fucking laughed so hard at this all artists are hilarious
this is very important
even great artists run into them.
Congrats on the coming out. We still love you the same ❤❤❤
Thank you so much, my friend!! :)
ok, i'm so sorry if i sound like a dumbass, but would you like to be refered to as he or she? like, when i comment on stuff when people have used your art without permission, i've used "they" when i would be talking about your art. like, "it's rude to use their art without their permission." i know this is an eye roll dumb question, but i just want to do what you prefer. :)
Hey don’t worry about it! If you’ve been using “they/their” I’m completely fine with it. I really have no preference, some use “he” and others use “she,” I am 100% flexible. Thanks for asking though. :)
dear danny, i know we don't talk much, but i just wanted to say I've always really admired the way you're so chill about gender and sexuality, in a very "floating the boat" kind of way, if that makes sense. and just as a general person you always seem so relaxed about so many things in life, and you're also an avenged sevenfold fan and mostly i just think you're really awesome and i just wanted to say I'm really happy for you, esp that things worked out w/ your folks so well. congrats/yay! :]
Thank you so much, that means so fucking much to me especially right now! I don’t even know how to express it, I’m at such a terrible loss for words today (that post took me three hours to summarize, no joke). But I truly appreciate it and I’m so stoked to be surrounded by great people like you :)
I’ve come out, I guess, officially
As some of you may have caught on, I’ve never been one to talk about my gender or sexuality unless asked, and even then, I’m never much more descriptive than simply saying that I am an androgynous person with a male partner and no pronoun preference. “But what DO you prefer?” is still a common question; consequently, my lack of a straight answer has made some people frustrated.
In the past 24 hours, I came out to both of my parents about my gender identity and my plans to take on hormone replacement therapy. Now, my mother - who I told first - was shocked, upset and disapproving of the procedure, and was terrified of the side effects. My father, on the other hand, was just like:
And I was pretty taken aback. He explained to me - my mother listening - that my happiness is the most important thing in the world, and that I will be loved by them both whether I am their son or daughter or anything in between. I’d be loved even if I were to make any decisions that they strongly disagree with (and this was not one of them). They cannot support the procedure financially at the moment due to barely having enough as is, but will stand behind me 100% as long as I promise to give one last stretch of deep thinking before jumping into it, and putting college at the top of my priorities in line with the therapy. My mother is still very apprehensive, but told me that she will always love me and be there for me through it all.
Now, I’ve made near-future plans to move to SoCal once saving $20,000, but I’m so ecstatic that my parents approve of my transsexualism that I don’t mind putting that goal off, no matter how ambitious & dedicated I was to making it happen. The idea that I can truly be who I want to be, in a body I’m comfortable in, and my loved ones approve of it - it’s unreal. I never realized how much I’d given up hope of overcoming others’ judgement, but now feel like I have a future to look forward to without compromise. It never dawned on me that I CAN be successful and truly happy with myself. The way I’m feeling right now, I believe it’s more than possible, and I finally have the motivation to go to college which I’d put off for the longest time. My fiancee has been there for me from the very beginning, and I believe him when he says he will love me unconditionally no matter what I look like or how I identify myself. My friends have also been nothing but supportive and encouraging.
Nothing is different as of yet, but it will be. Thanks for listening.
