homeless trans girl seeking living arrangements in Columbus, OH area
I’m all out of money (apart from a small transition fund, but spending that on anything but transition-related expenses is absolutely wrong), and I recently left my previous residence under less-than-ideal circumstances, leaving the vast majority of my possessions there
I’m currently temporarily living with a friend in Indianapolis, and can’t afford the gas money to move my junk from there (plus I have an awful lot of it, and it wouldn’t all fit here), and living here is very damaging to my emotional state
Is there anyone in the Columbus area who has room in an apartment or house, and would be willing to put me up? I’m looking for fairly long-term accommodations, and once I get my things in order, I can cover rent and expenses and such that I had missed at any point- I’m unemployed at the moment, but can make an alright amount from turning instruments and
I have an agreeable cat and don’t need much space. He sings (read: yowls and screams) at night sometimes, but he gets better
alternately, if you’re interested in helping me financially, donating to my paypal is an option, though I’m hesitant to accept money at the moment and would much prefer assistance with finding a place to live
please consider asking around or signal boosting- I’d like to meet someone before I live with them, but beggars can’t be choosers
thank you very much <3

Anonymous said: Heyo, I just wanted some advice, lately my bestfriend has been talking a lot about trans people and asking questions about it, but in a way to try and get to know how I feel about it better. But sometimes the questions or comments come off as rude/disrespectful to me and they make me uncomfortable/upset. I was just wondering how I should tell them without offending them or coming off as rude.

If a friend of yours is asking questions and making comments about trans issues that are disrespectful and/or rude then you shouldn’t be worried about offending them if you want to call them out and let them know that they’re being shitty. Straight up tell them “hey, when you talk about this stuff you do it in a really disrespectful and ignorant way and it makes me uncomfortable, can you not do that?”

Uh. Hi everyone. I’m Lynn and I’ve finally decided to uh.. well, ask tumblr for help. I’m moving out of a very abusive environment, but I think I’ve got most of that covered - however, doing so is going to leave me without enough money to pay for my HRT, at least for the first few months and probably longer.If you’re trans, you might already know what kind of hell it is to see yourself finally become something you’re physically proud of - whether or not other people thought you already were beautiful, being able to finally see and feel it in the mirror is possibly one of the most joyous experiences someone can have. It just feels right, after decades of feeling wrong. And then, if you have to stop taking them, you can see and feel all the changes revert. Its horrible, depressing beyond belief, and I actually end up covering my mirrors most of the time now that I’m off of it again.I’ve been on and off of HRT for 3 years now, only on it steadily for maybe half of that time.. and thats a generous estimate.Someone was nice enough to get me spiro about a month ago, but its nearly gone now. No insurance means I have to self medicate, and while dangerous, I have zero other options. It also means its expensive as hell. (45-50$ for 100 tabs of spiro 100, and most of us take 1 or 2 a day. I take 2, which means one bottle lasts about a month and a half)if you’d like to help with this, 100% of any donations will be spent on hormone meds immediately. Hopefully I’ll actually be able to stock up on bottles and then won’t have to worry about the bi-monthly fear of needing to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery.you can contact my inbox if you want, or you can donate directly here!just be aware that my anonymous is currently off. and if you can’t help, just signal boost maybe??
(also i build computers and after the move, would be glad to create one for cost of parts + the price of one bottle of spiro! but for the moment, commissions are closed due to stress and home stability)

Thank you so much, I love you all!

"A brief summary: I&#8217;m a 20 year old nonbinary transgirl, currently pre any kind of transition. I live with my parents who are NOT supportive about this and to cut a long story short I need to get away from their influence as soon as possible. I have no money, in fact I am heavily in debt from an attempt at university that I failed due to depression, dysphoria and bereavement, and the area I currently live in has very little work available. I&#8217;ve managed to get a temporary job, but it is minimum wages and most of that goes straight to my parents for &#8216;earning your keep&#8217;, they are essentially keeping me under close watch until I am deemed to have been &#8216;forgiven&#8217; for being trans and queer. They are draining me dry and I don&#8217;t know how much longer I can survive like this.
In short, I am asking for donations to help towards:
Paying off my debts
Saving up enough to move away from my parents
Being able to afford clothing more suitable to my identity
Laser hair removal
Speech therapy
Hormone treatment
Possible eventual surgery, not sure at this point.
Basically if you can spare anything, even if it&#8217;s just a couple of pounds, it would be hugely appreciated.
The total to work towards will vary depending on how much I feel is realistic for me to need, which varies.&#8221;Finn&#8217;s GoFundMe Page

I don’t know your dad and I don’t know the overall situation but maybe just tell him you appreciate the sentiment but how it also makes you uncomfortable?

Anonymous said: Hello, a few days ago one of my best friends told me and his closest friends that he was transgender and had picked a new name. I love my friend to death and I am doing my best to be supportive but I keep slipping up and using his old name. When this happens I either correct myself or he will correct me but I keep messing up and feeling like a terrible friend. Do you have any advice on how I can improve upon my tendencies and also any advice for how to be there for my friend. Thank you so much.

Let them know you’re trying and apologise for using the incorrect pronouns, don’t make the situation about you, and actually try to use the correct pronouns. There aren’t any “tips & tricks” I can give you on how to use/remember the correct pronouns. That’s all on you.

Anonymous said: I'm a trans man and have been on T for two years. I had unprotected sex with a trans woman three months ago. She has been on hormones for two years as well. What are the chances that I could be pregnant? I don't want to buy a test and feel dysphoric if it's not likely.

I think it depends on the dosage and other variables like that. Most trans women will become sterile (let me know if this is the wrong term) in about 3 months? For trans men it’s more up in the air I think? I don’t have much knowledge in this stuff. But what I honestly think you should do is talk to a healthcare professional that you trust and then go from there. 

If anyone has more information on this topic, please let me know.

Anonymous said: I'm getting into a relationship with a male (I am a female) who considers himself trans. I think this is amazing and I love the chance to be with him, but he wants me to get a strap-on so we can have sex this way, because he prefers it. The thing is, I am not comfortable with this. How do I tell him this without seeming judgmental or bitchy?

I don’t know your partner and I don’t know you so it’s hard for me to give advice like this but to put it simply, talk to him. Explain how you feel uncomfortable about it, talk it out. That’s all you really can do. I hope this helps.

Anonymous said: One of my closest friends is a pre-op trans male, using the pronoun "they." When I'm referring to them in the past - when they identified as a girl - am I supposed to use "she" or "they?"

If their preferred pronoun is they/them, then you use they. Never use a pronoun that someone does not prefer. Even if you’re talking about them in the past, it’s disrespectful.

A message I got from @daavenrey

(Since your ask isn’t working)

I just wanted to say Thank You, especially as a colored pre-op transgender woman in her teens, this blog offers so much support, as well as focus on transgender issues in the media and around the world.  It means a lot to have representation, as well as a blog dedicated to the struggle of a minority within a minority, facing/challenging stigmas towards us in our “modern” society, specifically America.  It’s rare to find an educated stance and prospective and informational blog amongst the countless white cis male run blogs exploiting us as freaks and creatures in the porn industry here in Tumblr.  It doesn’t help at all, regarding the fact that I am a Southeast Asian transgender woman (Filipino), and at least half of this “shemale porn”, is marginalized towards “asian ladyboys”.  It is disgusting how many cross dressers, transvestites, and cis-men, (heterosexual), treat/see me because I’m another “pretty face”, further more because I am Asian.
 ”



I actually disabled my ask box because I was getting inappropriate and irrelevant messages from trans men/cis men. But I just opened it up again because I realize regardless of that, it would make it easier for people with actual relevant comments and/or questions (like you) to contact me. So, yeah, sorry about it being closed. But I fixed it now.

Thank you for sending me this, I try my hardest to run this blog as best as I can. It means a lot to me to hear you say that. :)
