Quote from: Zetetic on September 18, 2023, 05:04:38 PMThe service I actually want to access doesn't seem to have actually received the request, whilst my practice is insisting that they can see it's in a prioritisation queue with a consultant. I have some idea of what's happening here but right now the idea of explaining it to two, or possibly three, different people in a way that actually unblocks anything makes me want to tear my face off.
Quote from: Zetetic on September 21, 2023, 01:56:17 PMI appreciate that your point is about how old the other demonstrators were, but this is also often because protests and marches are grossly inaccessible to people with mobility needs. Given how frequently people with physical disabilities are disproportionately at the sharp-end of cuts to public services, cost-of-living increases, etc. you'd expect them to be frequently visible at protests, all else being equal.
QuoteI've started therapy for the first time in my life, thanks to various Terfs stirring up shit that I've been trying to put behind me since I reluctantly decided it wasn't practical to transition, back in the early 2000s. I found a therapist who specialises in LGBTQ stuff, to make life slightly easier, and even though she knows full well what gender dysphoria is, when she asked me to put it into words, I found myself saying 'it's not so much that I "want to be a woman", it's that a sizeable chunk of my nervous system already thinks I am one and is constantly freaking out at the negative feedback it's been getting for (Christ) fifty years now.'I've never found a way of describing it before that really worked, so that was quite satisfying.EDIT: changed 'brain' to 'nervous system' which I think is better, but still not perfect.

Quote from: Jack Shaftoe on November 06, 2023, 07:08:51 AMI know I wouldn't be happy with any outcome other than one where I had a realistic chance of passing and even with FFS I can't afford, I'm over six foot, so that's not going to happen. Yes, I know there are tall cis women, but the one I know who's my height (and stunning) is now too scared to used public toilets because of Terf-based hassle.
Quote from: Zetetic on November 15, 2023, 09:58:07 AMGot challenged on whether "he/him is fine" was really true on Saturday. (And by someone who I'd already developed a horrific and inappropriate friend-crush, or something like that, on a few minutes earlier.) I guess I might be in the vicinity of some sort of tipping point.
Quote from: Zetetic on November 17, 2023, 11:56:46 PMI don't really know what to do about work. A bunch of close colleagues know I'm DIYing HRT. That's not really the same as a having a framework to hand strangers for a bunch of other stuff.
Quote from: Jack Shaftoe on November 30, 2023, 09:13:46 AMSo I'd have to get a new diagnosis, and I'm not sure I can be arsed, I'm so tired with it all.
