Happy Trans Day of Visibility everyone. I spent over 6 months writing and rewriting this article that I just published. Most of that time was spent debating whether or not to publish it.

I'm finally coming out; I'm trans. I hope this article helps.

Ben Barres was a trailblazing transgender neurobiologist who promoted equity & diversity.

His pioneering research on glial cells changed science & he became the 1st #trans person admitted into the National Academies of Science.

Barres was a strong advocate for women, early career scientists & the #LGBTQ+ community at a time when few people openly discussed gender identity. #history #science

Excerpt from his autobiography:

PSA to everyone to not use brave browser, the CEO of Brave Software is bigoted (donated to anti-lgbtqia+ organizations trying to ban gay marriage in the past and still has never addressed it or apologized) and was also against the Covid Lockdowns and is anti-vax. Using brave browser contributes to oppression of LGBTQIA+ ppl and contributes to brave software financially through ads and other means.

I recommend anyone still using brave browser to switch to ungoogled-chromium as a non-bigoted degoogled chromium-based browser alternative. is a good browser extension to use on ungoogled-chromium to sync your bookmarks.

hi I’m Ginny! #introduction

I spent my first decades as a generic white boy in tech, then a year ago I signed up for my first mastodon account and discovered I am a girl!

I post about tech, trans life, post selfies, and openly talk about mental illness and pain (cw'ed)

I’m a single parent w/ a 9 yo daughter, working as a software engineer in Seattle. I also write fiction (ya and speculative) and am generally very dorky.

btw you can be a girl if you want to be, inquire within!

FUCK @dasharez0ne, if you have a scrap of dignity and give a fuck about trans people? Spread this far and wide.

Below is a Google Doc discussing how the trans person that was behind
it got chased out by the transphobic asshole running things now. Oh, and how she got cut out of getting almost any money from that highly successful Kickstarter campaign.

They don't deserve your time or dimes. Spread the word everybody, Da Sharez0ne is DONE.

Posting this amazing art ("pink in the night") by Eunnie, who has seemingly not yet joined the fediverse, so that you're not missing out :TransHeart:

I have added full alt text, which was sadly missing from the posts elsewhere.

Wishing everyone the best. #BegPost #trans #transcrowdfund

It's official: I have acquired blahaj.

My wife and I went to IKEA to get some things for the new house and this was my first time going to IKEA! So...I was required by law to secure everyone's favorite fish...and ended up getting a big one and a small one... because.

since the NY Times is doing it's thing again – quoting anti-trans groups to make gender-affirming care for trans youth seem dubious – I will re-up this essay, which includes over 100 peer-reviewed studies and reviews: #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #science

Whatever you do, do not use Soapbox for your #fediverse needs.

The creator and maintainer, Alex Gleason, of Soapbox (or Rebased as it was called) is anti-trans and was previously the head of engineering of the Trump-related social network (Truth Social).

He also worked on Poast, which was a social network for neo-nazis and a direct successor to Kiwi Farms.

Steer clear of it.

My sister lives in a small town in the lost countryside of Brazil

While there, her and my BIL met an older gentleman.

The older gentleman is from a Germanic family. Many people in that region of Brazil are. Thus, he has a Germanic surname.

Unfortunately for him. That surname is 'Porn'.

I don't know if that surname means anything somewhere in central #europe -- Doesn't matter for the intents of this silly little story.

Mr. Porn, see, owns a small business that drives people around in busses and vans. — A — Transportation business.

Sometimes. The #towerOfBabel bestows a gift upon humanity.

Hi y’all. Me and my wife are #queer and #trans with a trans dependent, and we have been fundraising since March. With your support, we escaped Ohio and have relocated to Illinois!

But we still need your help. We are really struggling with bills, and we need donations more than ever. Read our story here:

The State Duma of the Russian Federation passed a bill to "completely ban transgender transition".

On June 14, 2023, during the first reading of the bill on the "total ban on transgender transition," the Minister of Health noted that in addition to the legislative initiative under discussion, he was conducting research work for conversion therapy. This issue was raised by Anatoly Wasserman, who was concerned that people with a "different idea" of their gender role need to be psychologically and psychiatrically "brought to reality." The Minister replied that work is already being done in this direction on the instructions of the President, and a corresponding institute is being created where other "behavioral disorders" and forms of antisocial behavior will also be addressed.

Welcome to #TransTuesday! I’ve talked so many times about how trans people and cis people really aren’t all that different, but there’s one way most cis people never realize that may just blow your mind. Strap in for CIS PEOPLE GET GENDER AFFIRMING HEALTHCARE TOO.

This one is VITAL for cis people to see. Cis friends, please boost this thread! We REALLY need cis folks to understand what's going on here.

I feel a connection here with #trans people taking endless selfies.

It's an act of self-love in a life until then filled with self-loathing.

I loathed being in photos until I transitioned I hated it and wanted to destroy every image taken by someone. They wanted to appreciate me on their terms, I wanted to die.

Now, I don't doll up and take photos for the appreciation of anyone but myself. I get to appreciate myself on my terms.

I don't think it's vain to take pride in yourself. Our transition is 100% for us and no one else. Even if they always try to make it about them.

I so love The Onion 🤣

"can 1% of the population be a threat to women's rights?"
"depends on the context"

Welcome to #TransTuesday!

This week’s topic is vital to trans people being seen and treated equally by society, and it’s just as important for cis people to understand.

Time to root out the darkness within as we combat INTERNALIZED TRANSPHOBIA.

This involves discussing ways we may not be kind to ourselves or others. Please read the whole thing before getting angry about it. This is important and we need to talk about it.

Gender-affirming care—for ADULTS—is now predictably under attack in #Texas. This is part of a Republican plan of genocide underway against #trans people. We need cis allies to be loud and angry on our behalf. Pay attention, this doesn't end here or with us: via @texastribune

”Employees are expected to comply with this dress code in a manner consistent with their biological #gender.”—#Texas Department of #Agriculture memorandum

Ag Dept employees received an unwelcome surprise in a new dress code issued last week that seems aimed at oppressing #transgender and #nonbinary workers, reports Digital Editor Kit @oconnell based on a document leaked to us:

Help wanted! So the anti-transgender reporting form on the Missouri AG’s website only allows one submission per IP address. But the site is also available via IPv6. I’ve written a bot to submit ChatGPT-generated garbage to the form, but I need someone with some IPv6 infrastructure to help me launch it. Any hackers want to help? Boosts appreciated.

Have you reached out to your elected official yet about the ongoing war on #trans people?

If not, it's time you did.

Here's a link to the Congress, where you can find out your local congressperson's contact details.

And here's the same for the Senate:

Even if you didn't vote for them, WRITE TO THEM. CALL THEM.

Even if you're not #trans, #nonbinary or #Genderqueer, go ahead and #BeAnAlly.


#USPol requires EVERYONE to play their part.

I think it's relevant to re-post an important blog post I've written, in the past.

An Important Reminder

Hello, I thought it didn’t need to be said, but here’s something I’ve come to have to repeat recently:

just because you don’t like a trans person, for whatever reason, does NOT mean that the way you should be aggro towards them is by misgendering/deadnaming them, purposefully doubting their identity, or otherwise being transphobic towards them. that just undermines the rights and efforts of others, too, for no reason.

if you dislike someone, that’s fine, dislike them, but don’t show that in a way that would cause needless harm to others who did nothing wrong.

Don’t spread hatred and harm at or about a group of people, just because one person who happens to be a part of that group has caused you upset for completely otherwise (non-gender/transness/identity) related reasons.

the fascist attorney general of Missouri has set up a tip site for complaints about gender transition, hope it doesn't get spammed by long, fake complaints over and over until he takes it down!

Would suggest "the 1st [known] #trans person admitted"

Ben Barres was a trailblazing transgender neurobiologist who promoted equity & diversity.

His pioneering research on glial cells changed science & he became the 1st #trans person admitted into the National Academies of Science.

Barres was also a strong advocate for women, early career scientists & the #LGBTQ+ community at a time when few people openly discussed gender identity.
