    not many photos of that period...

    despite mostly keeping to the cooler flavors of the rainbow, i think that pale bubblegum pink really suited me
    but i'm lazy low maintenance/bad at self-care/prone to variety, so cultivating that color required more effort than i'd allocate

    i feel more myself when i have colored hair -- so i recommend dyeing when possible
    e: or wigs, but see above re: lazy

    On the same note Deadpool is pretty often portrayed as being willing to hook up with guys, though given how he's written, one wonders how legitimate versus "funny" that is

    Anyway, John Constantine.

    I'm pretty sure they've pushed bi Wonder Woman in the comics, but it keeps getting pushed away by the many difficulties DC has in messaging about Wonder Woman and keeping a strong characterization in public consciousness for her.

    Catwoman and Mystique have both been in relationships with women.

    Also, Sailor Moon is definitely bi.

    I'd have to go through my comics again, but I don't recall it was ever explicit.

    WELP email just went out to everyone at work about my transition (a planned thing). Here we go...

    Good luck good luck!

    At my new job I’ve been correcting people on pronouns as it comes up, and put male pronouns in my profile/resume so hopefully that’s been getting the point across. People have been totally cool with it and apologized for getting it wrong the first time (i’m always like...no worries, there’s no way you could know...)

    On the front page of the company intranet there was a transition narrative by an employee in another office, so there’s definitely a significant degree of corporate buy-in to the concept of being trans. It’s a megacorp that is really concerned about its reputation and terrified of lawsuits, and also recognizes that diversity/inclusion is actually useful in attracting talent/increasing performance/appealing to clients. Does this reflect people’s genuine beliefs? Honestly, who cares. I think it probably does reflect the beliefs of most of the young people, who are preppy af but overall liberal. And it certainly governs everyone’s behavior, which is what matters.
    Basically, I feel like i’ve acquired good megacorporate citizenship for the cyberpunk future...

    I'm the first time my company's had to deal with this and so they were kind of having to draw up policy as we went, which meant my HR rep was running stuff by me to make sure it aligned with what I expected. I've been really happy with their approach--a lot of focus on making sure I'm comfortable with how things are going and in control of the transition. I was a bit worried because the company has a pretty strong core of small town religious folk at its core but they've made it clear that they place a great deal of importance on all individual employees feeling welcome and respected and that's really encouraging.

    How big is your company? It is strange to me to read "all the trans people at the company" because that implies there are quite a few and it still feels to me like trans people are about as common as unicorn shit.

    Over 200,000 people...as I said, a megacorp. I don’t want to give the specific name in a post because I don’t want to break my personal firewall. The person I emailed told me that my office is the ‘trans capital’ of the firm, (in that there is more than one trans person here—and there are like throusands of people affiliated with this office; it’s not small), so hopefully i’ll meet them in this call!

    I don't know if this is helpful but I personally know 6 out non-binary folks in my corporate building of 400 people or so. I'm in NJ though. And obviously there could be many others I don't know about. And as someone who works in the mailroom I try to be very mindful of names showing up I don't recognize.

    Hah all right we got 6 people on the call but it was also just made from people who had happened to reach out, not a company-wise advertised thing or anything. I am sure there are more.
    Still, awesome! We’re trying to figure out what exactly we’re going for/whether or how to advertise/who to open it to, etc.
    Somehow in maybe a year I’ve gone from someone who wouldn’t really even say their identity out loud and would not disclose anything at work to looking for trans meetups and just telling people I meet that yes I’m male despite the whole voice thing. This is... pretty good!
    (Also the voice thing...well. It’s not getting much lower exactly, but that might be because I’m used to speaking in a certain register. It is having /issues/ with my usual upper range, so something is going on with my vocal cords for sure. I was singing some of my standbys on Rock Band and was like...oh wow oh no I cannot hit these high notes any more and my voice legit cracks when I try to do so; how completely mortifying!)(but also expected, good sign that hormones are doing their job).

    So, I think it's a thing people here might be keen on seeing.

    Matthew Shepard's ashes are being laid to rest at National Cathedral

    it makes me kind of reflect a bit on how far we seem to have come in such a relatively short time.

    And how much further we still need to go.

    I will admit that I cried a bit reading the article.
