a set of screencaps from ‘dys4ia’ an amazing flash game by anna anthropy, based on her experiences with hormone replacement therapy. you can play dys4ia here this is a link.

the gameplay of dys4ia is incredibly simple, but dys4ia tells a really really really personal story, particularly for a flash game. obviously i’m biased, but anna anthropy touches on things with dys4ia that i would struggle to discuss, even with close friends.

at one point, i stopped playing right in the middle of one of the final ‘mini-games’ of dys4ia to watch the sun set and reflect on what some of it meant to me personally. imo, it’s probably some of the most strangely “honest” media depicting transition i have personally experienced.

that said, the game isn’t like, a perfect masterpiece. but it’s VERY COOL IMO idk i am extremely biased just ignore me k wutever. here is what anna had to say on the night she released dys4ia

dys4ia is the story of the last six months of my life: when i made the decision to start hormone replacement therapy and began taking estrogen. i wanted to catalog all the frustrations of the experience and maybe create an “it gets better” for other trans women. when i started working on the game, though, i didn’t know whether it did get better. i was in the middle of the shit detailed in level 3 of the game, and at the time i had no idea what the ending would be; it was hard to envision a happy ending.

this was amazing. there’s also a great interview with anna anthropy at prettyqueer.com at the moment

1. Don’t play this if you’re not ready to cry for about 10 minutes afterwards.
1.5 stuck on level 1 for five months ugh I hate doctors, I hate them, I HATE them. 

omg playing this right now. This is amazing

AHHHH everyone play Anna’s game.

My friend Dan showed me this a few months ago. Super amazing.

It’s a sad irony that we promote self-defense classes as a way of combating violence against women, yet many of the women of color, trans and cis alike, are currently imprisoned precisely because they fought back against violence in their homes and in the streets.
Too often trans and queer women of color survive violence in their homes and on the streets only to have the police, courts and prison-industrial complex come after them for having the audacity to survive in a world where, as Audre Lorde said in her poem “A Litany For Survival,” they “were never meant to survive.”

Violence is more than just assault. Political violence exists in institutional discrimination. People being denied housing, a source of income, medical care, etc, that’s all violence.

Update: 11 year old trans girl lost appeal

bookwormfemme:

kerriheartsyou:

transawareness:

The above article is an update.  Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost.  She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender.  She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her.

Please, if you haven’t signed the petition, sign it, reblog it, ask your friends to sign it. We’ve managed to get 40K signatures for a pageant model, we’ve only gotten 11K for a little girl about to have her life ruined.  Lets get on the ball and spread the word.

Sign It.

I literally just repeated the f-word until I ran out of breath.

Let me catch my breath. I may go on a cursing spree again as soon as I get it back.

Seriously people…

WHY THE FUCK AREN’T PEOPLE REBLOGGING THIS??

Sign this and pass it to whoever you can. No exceptions.

Something in my heart just broke.

Sign it.  This is really important.

Argentina JUST PASSED a groundbreaking gender identity bill!!!
From now on, people will be able to change the name and gender on their ID without needing psychiatric permission or any body modifications. Furthermore, anyone who does want hormones or surgery will be able to access them for free through the public and private health system.
It was passed unanimously today by the Senate :-D
