“Eventually you can't help but figure out that, while gender is a construct, so is a traffic light, and if you ignore either of them, you get hit by cars. Which, also, are constructs.”
Imogen Binnie, Nevada

“...nobody really wants to be a trans woman, i.e. nobody wakes up and goes whoa, maybe my life would be better if I transitioned, alienating most of my friends and my family, I wonder what'll happen at work, I'd love to spend all my money on hormones and surgeries, buying a new wardrobe that I don't even understand right now, probably become unlovable and then ending my short life in a bloody murder.”
Imogen Binnie, Nevada

“Maybe convincing yourself that you could never transition is a defense mechanism that enabled you to survive high school, family, work—but like most defense mechanisms, it wasn’t conscious, and like most defense mechanisms, it became a pattern you weren’t aware of, and then, like most defense mechanisms, at some point it stopped making your life easier and started making your life harder.”
Imogen Binnie, Nevada

“Whoa dude. My belt came undone when you said that.”
Liz Prince

“Without a bellyful of liquor, all I am is a woman who cracks stupid jokes to make up for being shy.”
Katie Crouch, Girls in Trucks

“I do not mean to say that I viewed those desires of mine that deviated from accepted standards as normal and orthodox; nor do I mean that I labored under the mistaken impression that my friends possessed the same desires. Surprisingly enough, I was so engrossed in tales of romance that I devoted all my elegant dreams to thoughts of love between man and maid, and to marriage, exactly as though I were a young girl who knew nothing of the world. I tossed my love for Omi onto the rubbish heap of neglected riddles, never once searching deeply for its meaning. Now when I write the word love, when I write affection, my meaning is totally different from my understanding of the words at that time. I never even dreamed that such desires as I had felt toward Omi might have a significant connection with the realities of my "life.”
Yukio Mishima, Confessions of a Mask

“What pleases the public is lively and vivid delineation which makes no demands on the intellect; but passionate and absolutist youth can only be enthralled by a problem.”
Thomas Mann

“Dudes in suits and politicians didn't make sense to my 18-year-old brain. All I wanted to do was be awesome.”
Ronen Kauffman, New Brunswick, New Jersey, Goodbye: Bands, Dirty Basements, and the Search for Self

Ena Rusnjak Markovic Congratulations on your publication! I can't wait to read it. I will be ordering a number of copies from my local bookstore in order to pass out to my friends here in Sydney, Australia.

All the best :)


Shannon i like your face and the expression on it.


message 4: by Zara

Zara MAN, DID I MISS YOU. I sorta unlined myself by deleting my Facebook and Myspace and (yes I still had) my Friendster pages. I was going to delete my Livejournal because I started a new blog to house all my old Myspace blogs, but then I stopped using that, too.

Grad school and a baby have really fucked up my online life. CURSES!!!
