A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.
So I put this bunch of photos together to give folk an idea of my face over the past few years. I figured that it’d be nice to see the person that this post is for.
Story time: Once upon a time, Little Briar never ever thought that the day would come that he would get to be called anything other than birthname and the pronouns assigned to him. That made him very sad. But then he grew bigger and discovered that he could actually get these things called a binder to help him present in a more masculine way! And that he could ask for people to use male pronouns. A lot of folk didn’t bother to use them, but people started to. Then he got on hormones to allow him to look more like the guy he felt like. But he still had issues with his chest. And the way clothes hugged it even when he was so tightly bound that he was risking health issues. That caused him to be anxious about going out places, but none the less he went out and got a job. And decided that this job was going to allow him to finally save up money to get an operation to finally help him be comfortable with himself, whether clothed or in the shower. Then reality set in and the now grown up Briar realized that he can’t possibly save up funds all on his own.
Thus why he (me, that is) is asking for everyone who can possibly help him (me) get to the goal of getting his GRS operation done. I wish to get it done here in Wisconsin, over in Madison, with Dr. King. While the operation itself might seem like it’s un-needed to other folk, for me it’s becoming more and more pressing to get done.If anyone can give anything, I’d greatly appreciate it. If you can’t, but still just want to reblog this; thank you. Anything and everything is amazingly helpful.

Even though I have a headache, this song was so necessary for today. Screaming and all — actually, especially screaming.

While studying the work of László Moholy-Nagy, it’s impossible to not be inspired.
He made significant artwork in many different medias and also crossed over into many fields of design. He made magazine covers and sculptures, set design and photograms, paintings and collages.
It’s just so impressive. How do I achieve one fortieth of what he achieved during his tragically short lifetime?
