I thought I should introduce myself to some extent, so here we go. Bare with me because I’m awful at introductions.
I’m a 16 year old trans man from Suffolk, England (that’s part of the bump on the east coast if you didn’t know). I used to use tumblr a lot but some of the things I want to put out there or just write about are things that would potentially start a riot, it’s just not a very realistic environment. No where else in life could you re-label “political correctness” and have a whole army of “social justice bloggers” back you up. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for equality, and can’t stand homophobia, transphobia, racism, or anything else of the kind, but there’s a point where it just all goes a little too far, and quite often I see that happening on tumblr. I can’t imagine the amount of anonymous hate I would get if I was open about all my thoughts on there, and often they’re not rational in forming an argument against you. I’m hoping that this is a more reasoned outlet.
I can get quite opinionated — but not to the point that I can’t be reasonable and see a different viewpoint I hope — about things, and I like to write about it. I love to write, but unfortunately I don’t do enough of that anymore. Blame the weather, blame my messed up hand, blame the fact that I made a mistake and landed myself on an engineering course and don’t have to write anymore. Most accurately, I don’t because there’s no point, there’s no one there to read it. I miss writing about things though, so here I am.
I don’t have many interests per se, I love history, and do a bit of photography, but that’s about it. For the first 15 years of my life I lived in a pub with my parents, and I think that caused some of my problems, but not all. Those problems being depression. At the moment I’m a few days shy of my last suicide attempt (23rd January 2012) that landed me in hospital. I can fairly confidently say that I am clear of my depression now, but I wouldn’t willingly admit it if I wasn’t okay. I’m transgender, lived a couple of years identifying as a gay female before then, and have a sort of gay girlfriend. I say “sort of gay” because she is sort of into the gay scene and has only been with girls in the past, but has always been okay with the thought that she might one day end up with a man.
I can’t really think of anything else to say, and anything else I’ll just write about anyway, but that’s a little bit about me.
