About Me

Transgender woman of color who wants to live in a world where schools and libraries have enough money and the Defense department requires yearly bake sales to update their missiles.

Thank You

I am glad to see the sheer awesomeness of the orange man child bigly hands and his munster toddlers make such a clusterf*** in their plans. Like George C. Scott once said in Patton,

"this is where you hold them by the nose, and kick them in the..."

Keep kicking, folks. Keep kicking.

As a Veteran, I am so sad

This hurts so much...I have two friends of mine who depend on Meals on Wheels...and are veterans. But, they are gay men. And I am a transgender woman with mental issues.

So, I guess I could get a gun and hurt others or myself but I don't get to EAT?!?!

A budget says much of our values. This one is really loud about what this orange zest tang man child and his minions feel about life.


I can only say wow...and I say with pride that he is my favorite president in my lifetime, and quite possibly our country. Sure beats the orange zest man child in the Oval Office now.


I have heard the hateful rhetoric from Milo especially against transgender people. I am transgender, and although acceptance has increased, there are so many people whose ignorance has made my day so much more challenging. Sometimes people call Ann a man due to her larynx and height. Milo suggests if a transwomen cannot pass, she should just give up, and has dead named individuals on various campuses to illustrate his point.

All hateful rhetoric is wrong, and please I am not blaming anyone here. I am passionate since when I came out and endured abuse from individuals like these two people and their followers.

Reading this week

I am reading Scaramouche (I hope I am spelling the name correctly) by Rafael Sabatini. The story is set during the initial phase of the French Revolution and shows through the eyes of the protagonist the shifting dichotomies between the noble and peasent classes. Some of the titles that are mentioned in this thread also seem to be rather interesting so I do hope to finish soon so I may enjoy some of the other works people are talking about!



As a transgender woman of color, I unfortunately see and hear too much of ignorant individuals who feel that their iota of gender and sexual science makes them experts of these disciplines. I am most certainly not a punchline, I am a veteran, an accountant, and hopefully soon a novelist. My family and I are muslims, and they support me in my transition.
