All my paperwork is in so I can get the consult for bottom surgery! There are about 150 people in front of me and he only does consults on Fridays. He's a professor of urology and does these surgeries. It's estimated that I can get an appointment for August. I'm excited!

That's awesome!

Congrats! I turned in my second letter this week and am just waiting on insurance and a surgery date.

Yeah, I set up a dedicated and specifically queer-only Discord for Pathfinder/Starfinder players. It came about after realizing just how many queer folks were having 'issues' in the local Pathfinder scene, and realizing that creating a dedicated for-us space. There are games being run, and the community is coming along very nicely! It's over at

Alison-Cybe, if you see this soon enough, I'd suggest you put the discord information behind a spoiler. (You have an hour after you first make the post to make edits).

These are public, Google-searchable boards.


As long as it's a temporary link, it shouldn't be too bad, but yeah, no harm in being extra-careful. I doubt spoilers obstruct anything for bots, but you never know.

Alison, I think you should say >Focused< rather than "only". Just my 2cents.

I have two games in this! Feathers is a slice-of-life game about fallen angels as a metaphor for being dysphoric and trans, while 199X: SHUTDOWN is a cyberpunk microgame about being trapped in a city-skyscraper with an evil AI! You get both and several hundred other games for $5 while helping out trans folks in need.

There's two days left on it as I write this - act fast!

I just want to flag up, if anyone is looking to run any org play games online, we are specifically looking for any now.

I don't have pictures yet, but last week I did a boudoir shoot. It was amazing! I highly recommend it! The photographer was wonderful. She kept me at ease the whole time. I brought my own oitfits, and she had several that she wanted me to try as well. I can't tell you how euphoric I felt!

Wow. Lots of women visible today. I can't help but feel they are normally invisible. But now I can see them.

I got my pictures back from my boudoir shoot and I'm in tears seeing myself. I feel so incredible! If you haven't done one and have been wondering if you should, the answer is yes, you should.

I was in a 2019 closed playtest for Girl by Moonlight, and the wait since has made me rabid - it's truly a next step forward in FitD design. My campaign (tweaking the On a Sea of Stars playset to fit my group's homebrew setting and tie a bow on four years of inter-linked campaigns within it of other systems) starts the first week of June. I can't wait!

If you want a preview of the game, the Roll20 sheets are up for free - just create a new game session of it and you can view them all! We have a Guardian, an Outsider, a Stranger, and a Time Traveler in our squad, and I can't wait to meet them.

If you're on Facebook, can you please report a page called Men Follower and Men Follower 2.0. They are a hate group that shares profile pictures of trans women in hopes to dox us and intimidate us. I was targeted today. I know that it won't stop them, but it will get their pages shut down and they will have to start over so it will slow them down.

I'm not worried about my safety. I encourage them to find me and find out what infantry veterans are capable and willing to do (I have many combat veteran friends plus myself as well trained). We have some really nice hospitals up here and I don't mind introducing them to our health care system. I'm more worried about the younger trans girls and women and their families and friends. I don't know how they will handle the hate.

Reporting both was two seconds; I don't have a lot of faith in Facebook, but here's hoping they take action.

Some years back, a gaggle of 4chan weirdos spent a few months hounding me, while my early tabletop work got a KiwiFarms on my butt for a little bit. Both were scary... until the lowlives involved got bored, and in several cases were permanently banned from communities they'd quite liked before their bad behavior. I'm so sorry it's happened to you today <3

At first I was like "FINALLY! I can get people to follow me around and sing my praises or what have you! What will they think of next?!"

And then I kept reading.

I will report them at work today.

You ever see a really strange statement and wonder "is this person just a stupid a$~%&&$ or is this a dogwhistle"?

FTFY

Betting that they meant the dogwhistle, but didn't realize how stupid the statement was.

If you want the link to the exact page and the profile picture they chose, here it is. There are a bunch of trans women there who have been targeted. I only ask that you report. Do not engage. That's what they want. There are far too many trans women and girls who don't have the coping skills in place to protect themselves from this and I fear that they will harm themselves. Hopefully we can save a few along the way.

If I can make a personal request, could we spoiler conversations like this in the future? Obviously, no obligations, but it's rough to find myself suddenly reading about self-harm, transphobic abuse and child endangerment without warning.

Anyways, I'm not on Facebook, but I hope you get them taken down!

On a happier note: My confidence level has risen to the point that I'm extremely happy with who I am. I'm going on dates (and having to actually schedule them so that I don't forget when they are). I've had to turn down dates because I'm getting so many guys wanting to meet me. I've been going to the pool more often, and using the women's locker room, without incident. I'm so incredibly happy with my life now. I'm still waiting for the consultation for my bottom surgery, but I'm trying to be patient.

Missed Queens Pride last weekend. Going to Brooklyn Pride this weekend and likely Bronx Pride the next.

I'd go to Pride (either in Chicago or Pittsburgh) but I'm super crowd-adverse after a certain recent health crisis that spikes when a lot of folks are crowded in close proximity to each other.

Even while wearing masks and vaccinated
