FAQ

I’m doing a bit of work to the web design and I want to include a FAQ page.
I’ve got a few basic ones like “what are my preferable pronouns” or “where do you get your shoes?” but I need a few more! Feel free to ask me anything, I might include it in my FAQ!

When I say this music video is important, THAT, is simply all I can say.
This song & the video, had me in full blown tears.
DO NOT, let this video slip past your eyes.

HAVE YOU HEARD THE LATEST FROM NON-BINARY, TRANS SINGER/SONGWRITER CHASE?

Some of you have heard me talk about Chase before, but today they released a new EP and I’m pleasantly surprised. I say that because compared to their first album, “Magdalene Me”, where though each song was great in its own way, the songs all seemed to have their own genre. Unapologetic seems to be more mastered with a much better flow between the songs. Though Unapologetic only has six tracks + a short prelude, the album shows a lot of growth for Chase.

I think it is very important to love and support individuals who creatively express a gender variant identity. Chase is a trans singer/songwriter with a great deal of potential! These days you don’t find many gender variant, non-binary or trans individuals who openly express their identities through their craft. Even if you can’t buy their music, listen & share! Even if its not your taste of music, share it with others who might like it. I think the important part here is that a non-binary, trans individual is putting a valid effort into music that represents their lifestyle, which is something that you rarely see, ever.

I will be buying their new EP for $5.99 on their official bandcamp page and I encourage anyone else who likes a few of their songs to do the same.
Be sure to like their Facebook page, Chase Official FB &
listen to more of their music on their YouTube Channel, Chase Official YT
Buy Unapologetic for $5.99 today!

From my broad shoulders, all the way down to the tip of my size 11 feet.
Every detail about my body implies something.
From my square chin to my lengthy legs.
Every inch of my body implies something.
From my flat chest to the occasional stubble upon the edge of my cheek.
Every part of my body implies something.

Or at least… it was supposed to.

But time and time again, I have proven otherwise.

One can not choose the body in which they are born.
But one can choose to take care of and style their body in a way that expresses who they are. The unfortunate part is that the mass majority is to busy chasing after beauty standards.
Beauty standards that are constructed upon a gendered norm, of course.

Some tell me that I need to stop whining about it. They say that I’m just the odd ball and that the industry can’t recognize all the weird ones. They say I’m just the 1 out of 1,000,000. They say that clothes need to be gendered so that the people of society can understand the difference between the two genders. And to those of you who agree, I say that you’re missing the point.

Having two binary genders, complete with a separate social standard for each of the two binary genders, has lead our society to believe that there is a difference between the two, and there is not.

The broadness of your shoulder or the size of your feet does not determine your gender.
Your gender identity does not determine your place or role in society.
The shape of your chin or the length of your legs does not determine your gender.
Your gender identity does not determine your place or role in society.
The size of the breast on your chest or the amount of hair on your face does not determine your gender.
Your gender identity does not determine your place or role in society.
Am I being clear?

Be who you are.
Be yourself.
Be you.

I don’t know how else to put it.

Can I sincerely ask what is wrong with gender roles ? I was raised a woman needs to b e scene and not heard, a good person, quiet, submissive, and a man will handle everything. I am not lost in a society obsessed with sex mostly but I do not want to be independent and without a man (as I am now) and it feels wrong, What is so wrong with one person dominant and one being a homemaker?

The notion that a woman is supposed to be seen, and not
heard, is in my opinion, very wrong.

Everyone has an opinion, including women. And in my own opinion, one mans opinion is just as important as one womans opinion. Every human being has a right to their own opinion, every human being has the choice to share it or not. Again, in my opinion, men, women & every human being in between should not be judged or discrimimated on, simply for sharing their opinion.

Second, the notion that women are supposed to be seen, over being heard, is again in my opinion very wrong. It is also my opinion that this notion is sadly the reason why many individuals, especially women, suffer from body issues. Mind you when i say body issues, I’m talking about a list ranging from anorexia to anxiety and everyrthing in between. I’m not saying this notion is the main factor for people with body issues, but a cause for them no less.

There is nothing wrong with being quiet or submissive or both. But it is wrong to assume women are the only individuals who should be as such.

The notion that a “man” will handle everything is scary. What it means to “be a man” is different for most, and sometimes leads so called “men” to do irrational things such as beat his wife, because he thinks its neccesary for maintaining his “manhood.” Not speaking about all men, but giving an example of how the notion of “being a man” can become bent and twisted, leading to disaster.

What’s wrong with a relationship consisting of one dominate figure and one submissive figure?
Nothing.

However, in my opinion, it is wrong to assume that the dominate figure is always male, and the submissive figure is always female. Its also wrong to assume that all realtionships have to function this way.

I hope I answered your questions, whoever you are. I send you good vibes and hope that you can enlighten yourself to a deeper way of thought, beyond those of your upbringing.

alloutorg:

When Maria, a trans student in Brazil, was fined by her school for wearing a skirt, her classmates took matters into their own hands. They picked a day where EVERYONE wore skirts in protest. 
After the demonstration, the school’s discussing changes to the dress code. So inspiring, right?

Absolutely inspirational! Let clothing define your personality, you’re style! Never let it dictate your gender identity, and stand up for those who’s lives are negatively effected by discriminatory social standards!!!

That awkward moment when…

I’m at work with a client and a customers child points and says loud and clear “are you a girl or a boy?”

My mom asked me to go to church.
And I did,
in a beautiful dress. 
Sunday best of course.

I’m at the doctor and the nurse asks me what my gender is and I laugh out loud and say “you tell me!”

I am mistaken for a lesbian.

The person I’m on the phone with goes “yes ma’am, umm… I mean. Umm.”

I go to H&M and use the guys dressing room to try on girls clothes.

I’m hit on by a guy, in the guys H&M dressing room, while trying on girls clothes.

I’m slightly drunk at Applebee’s Restaurant and find myself lost in between the men’s & women’s bathroom.

I’m at the shoe store and I ask the clerk for a size 11 and she looks at me and says “10 is the highest size we carry, umm, but our shoes run big if you want to try some on!”

My mom buys me a birthday card and has to cross out the words “son” & “man” and writes out to the side “child” & “human being.”

My best friend and I run into the gas station frantically yelling at each other,  “WHERE ARE MY BOOBS! OH MY GOD I’VE LOST MY BOOBS!” “I DON’T KNOW ELLIOTT! WHER DID YOU SET THEM DOWN!!” And then the clerk runs over to us and says “can I help you find something?” At the same time we go, “Where are his boobies!!!”

Just a few of my awkward moments as an openly gender variant individual. Xoxo.

Trigger Warning.
I don’t agree with everything spoken.
Do not confront someone cat calling at you, if you can not protect yourself or be protected.
That is my opinion, I know some will disagree.
However this video, is still very important.
