Hi! I'm new here and to the LGBTQ+ community, and still not sure if I really belong here, so I'll post an #introduction.
Mid 30s, male, married. I often question myself and who I really am, and feel the need to talk about this. I'm not ready to talk to my few close friends or my wife - there's too much chaos and unanswered questions in head.
By joining this instance, I hope to find people I can freely talk to and who may be able to help find answers.
Thanks for reading!
Holy shit. OpenInsulin successfully formulated a non-proprietary version of insulin and they are ready to scale production! 👀
Good to see Mike Rugnetta back on youtube (the PBS idea channel guy if anyone remembers that!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lrwAhd27ng
I have a few reflections and advice on the 5-year anniversary of coming out as transgender:
1. The best piece of advice I got: "Your transition belongs to you." There are no true rules in this. You don't even have to transition, and you certainly don't have to transition to anything established, or understandable to anyone else.
There are no objective body schedules or social milestones. You are free to make up WHATEVER you want. And you are free to push for your standards to be respected and assisted. Transition belongs to you.
Outside of hard-and-fast medical numbers and safety guidelines (real physical safety, not gatekeeping bullshit), you'll encounter invisible rails attempting to direct your experience. It's alright to oppose this, and to call them out. But the core of your experience is your own, and that can't be taken away.
