    yeah I imagine the luster of being catcalled will vanish after it gets old

    also probably the first time you have a guy get all transphobic after he's been hitting on you for a while and then he finds out or something

    There is nothing that will affirm your dominance like slapping the piss out of a dude.

    Trust me on that one.

    Guy being an abusive prick to this girl I knew in junior high, I grabbed him by his lapels and slapped him so hard my fucking hand swelled up a bit and he started spitting blood. Three or four more of those without a response, other than to apologize to the girl.

    Also I made him apologize to me for wasting my goddamn time.


    edit: i wanna get catcalled at.

    like, by a group of chicks.

    girls just hanging out in front of the fucking Bath and Body Works at the mall or something, leering at dudes over their sunglasses.

    "WOO, I LIKE THE CHUBBY ONES!"

    Okay I'm sorry, Pony, but that's pretty funny.

    seriously

    my psychiatrist basically is like "you're pretty much a tribal throwback to a time when the big alpha male asshole was sorta necessary for the survival of his tribe but it's a behavior that gets socialized out of most people, with you it hasn't because your brain is apparently hardwired for it"

    he put it a little more gently than that and tried to spin it in a positive way in the same way that psychiatrists try to tell aspies they're geniuses or something

    but really what it came down to is i'm basically as much of a merciless shit-heel as a sociopath or a narcissist but i'm obviously capable of some pretty deep empathy and compassion, especially for my "tribe" of friends and family that i am ruthlessly protective of

    so it means i don't really fit into the current DSM which basically defines all the big personality disorders as lacking in empathy, which i obviously don't but am capable of burying pretty deep when i have to as a defense mechanism

    i appear fully capable of just shutting my conscience off for periods of months or years at a time before eventually having a breakdown over it, and it's some kind of survivalist mindset thing

    whatever, man

    i don't take it too seriously

    i can't take a diagnosis that doesn't have medical community consensus behind it to be anything more than his elaborate theory as to why i don't fit into his little boxes.

    It sounds like you guys have all had to deal with some pretty shitty therapists.

    I've been seeing a guy who's easily the best I've ever known, and I've seen a bunch. The guy's christian, but it doesn't really come out much in the sessions. He occasionally comments about God, but rarely and never pressures me about being more strict in my faith or anything like that. It's more like a Fred Rogers thing where it's just a fact to him that comes up sometimes but he doesn't really broadcast it to those who have no interest in discussing it.

    He's very nice, but gives me shit when necessary without being too hard where he doesn't need to be. He's one of those guys who's not strictly into it for the money. Until I got medicare recently, which is gonna pay for weekly sessions, he was seeing me for free for some time now after my previous insurance ran out of coverage for our visits a year or so ago.

    He's a great guy, and I'm glad to know him. He's getting up there in years, though, and like me he's a type 1 Diabetic. It makes me sad to know he probably won't be around in another ten years. :(

    Probably the hardest shit I've ever had to do, honestly, was live in Africa. Getting used to that, what with all the starving kids and shit, was tough. Fortunately it was seventh grade year so I didn't really miss anything in school whatsoever.

    Also tough was having to call out my dad on something he did once that left me minorly depressed (it was something stupidly small he said that just kind of grew into a complex in my mind) and the conversation kinda turned into a general talk on life from there, which was nice. Just trying to spit it out was tough, though.

    Also trying to start longboarding again after crashing at twenty-odd miles an hour and getting road rash is... tough.

    But honestly compared to some of you guys I feel like I've had it fucking good, and I just want to give so many of you hugs. So many of you. Especially everyone.

    Also Arivia, I know a really tall transsexual (one s or two?) with a relatively flat chest (probably would be large on, say, a Japanese woman but she's 6'5") and she looks gorgeous. No idea what you look like, but a lot of women don't really need giant chesticular fortitude. If you want DDs go for it cos they're your tits, but hey a large C is always wonderful and good for your back.

    I think this is a pretty good thing to do, so long as it's applied realistically.

    I mean, not everyone with aspergers is gonna be amazingly good at math or have a perfect memory or something.

    But some problems, ones that set people apart from the norm, also have strengths that come from that, and I see no reason why people shouldn't be encouraged to take some small pride in that strength, so long as they also understand the drawbacks that need to be dealt with.

    years ago a psychiatrist diagnosed me with anti-social personality disorder

    i was medically defined as a sociopath

    rather than being upset by this, i went "IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW" as if it made the way i'd been an absolute shit human being excusable because i have a condition okay

    so much like some people with Asperger's (or more accurately, nerds on the internet who claimed to have Asperger's) rather than acknowledge my condition as a problem to be worked with I wore it as some kind of excuse-badge to try to absolve myself of responsibility for my behavior

    and to squelch the burgeoning voices of my repressed conscience and guilt, which i did for years and years

    i allowed that diagnosis to partially define me as a person, which was terrible

    that changed only a few years ago, and it took some pretty awful things to happen to me (and obv. a new psychiatrist) for things to change and for me to accept that not was that psychiatrist wrong in the first place

    i had used that diagnosis as a defense mechanism to shield myself from dealing with my real problems

    I don't know if there's any way to state this without coming off as melodramatic.

    But actually accepting your own death, not learning to ignore or downplay it, but to genuinely come to terms with the human condition, has pretty much made every other problem in life feel like cake to deal with.

    in fact it just makes him feel shitty for having the issues in the first place and adds guilt to his existing neuroses

    People who constantly ask, nay, demand to know about relationship statuses are tactless buttholes who need slapped upside the head

    Yes Great Aunt M, that means you too

    Every once in a while I honestly wonder if I'm bicurious. I can't really say sexual on that one because I've never, you know, had bi sex. I would fuck 1970s era David Bowie, at the very least.

    Who wouldn't though?

    I used to have a really good pile of trans self-deprecating jokes. Like "gay people have pride parades. we have funeral processions."

    Metz, in kindergarten my mom used to get calls from my school because I would fight bullies in my classes.

    It is one of my favorite stories concerning myself because I like that, even at the age of five (a year after overcoming being born deaf & remaining so till four), I knew what had to be done.

    My mom, when talking about some of our shitty neighbors and their shitty children, used to tell me about how one of their kids, some sort of down's syndrome case named Chris, who was twice my size once upon a time, used to pick on me a lot ,sometimes mildly violently.

    His mother did nothing to stop this, of course. In fact, she threw out another neighbor's back by roughly grabbing the woman's arm after said woman grabbed her son's arm to stop him from bashing me over the head with some plastic doodad as an impromptu club.

    Well, one day I come flying into the house, like I'm trying to outrun a stampede. Moments later, Chris and his mother come hurrying up to our door.

    Chris has a bloody nose.

    Teehee.

    there are things i discuss on the internet

    my sexual orientation, my religious beliefs, my political viewpoints, personal philosophies on life n shit

    bad experiences and awful stories about my life, bitching about my family, etc.

    that i'd pretty much never do in person

    it's not even because of anonymity, really, i make zero effort to hide my identity and i hang out with a bunch of forumers outside the internet on a regular basis!

    so, i dunno

    i guess it's easier in text for me to just blah blah blah about whatever

    I read the other day that different forms of expression come on a spectrum of most protected to most vulnerable, with writing being one side for most people and something like dancing on the other.

    Also hard has just been dealing with my parents in general after my brother's death. (Which, as an aside, I've only actually been able to reference as his "death" for about a week. Before it was more just, "oh, yeah I was planning to do that and then my bro... and I just haven't gotten around to it yet.")

    My mom has "coped" with it by completely burying herself in work, which means she has barely coped at all and on days without much to do she basically gets into the state that I was at the day after it happened.

    My dad on the other hand has just stirred up more shit than usual except now everyone's vulnerable enough to where some of it really makes me want to just beat the shit out of him. A week after my brother died he mentions to my mom that he doesn't see their marriage going anywhere and wants a divorce. The next day he decides that she was too sad-looking about it and now they're going to stay together. His extreme sexism has only seemed to ramp up since it all happened as well, which is just great to listen to when I'm at home nowadays.
