New Kicks!


So Adidas has these super cute Transgender Pride sneakers that I just had to get...

The sneakers are called Carrera Low Pride Shoes (link to Canadian site) and they are as adorable in real life as they look in the photos. The accents and trim are pretty and even the laces have pride messages on them.

Not sure if this is a one-time thing, but I couldn't pass them up and I'm glad I didn't. They arrived today and I am super pleased with them. It's also not lost on me that today is Transgender Pride in Toronto, so talk about timing!

Sometimes the stove is hotter than you expected

So, I recently decided that I would dip my toe back into a Q&A site, Stack Exchange's Photography site, where I was once a moderator... turns out, the stove was hot and I got burned by it. Content warning: transphobic slurs in an image.

Isn't that a shame? Well, anyways...

It seems like a neverending stream of hate is directed towards us in the LGBTQ+ community and time and again we're told that it's just a fringe, that the majority supports us. Where is that majority? They feel very absent to me. 

Gender Questing

I want to talk about gender questing as a bit of a follow-on from my recent post about using "identifies as" with respect to gender.
