Returning to a Void
I can’t help myself avoiding this urge to weep tonight. Although it’s the first day of my senior year, I still feel frightened. Will I be able to sleep tonight? Will I feel good tomorrow?
Just filled out my health insurance forms!
yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!
I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.
Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.
No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.
To those whose gender identities aren’t male or female, please remind yourself, especially in medical situations, that when this question is present, it’s asking for your biological makeup, not gender identity; specifically about whether you have XX or XY chromosomes. Remember that sex is biological and gender is cultural.

Sometimes I get really fucking self-conscious about how I don’t fit in well with the gay culture. Sometimes when I go out to the gay bars and clubs, I get extremely down about how I don’t look like how everyone expects me to.
I don’t wear the “hip” clothes, the boat shoes or Toms, I don’t wear snap-backs or those floral print Supremes, those overly tight tanks, the short cut off jeans, or that slightly over-sized Lana Del Rey shirt with the sleeves rolled up. I know absolutely nothing about fashion, I’ve never read more than one article in Vogue, I put my make-up wrong, and I love it when my black nail polish is cracked and worn. I think Beyonce is over-hyped and not good, at all. I think Lady Gaga is a tool. I think Niki Minaj is an absolutely horrid role model.
But then I realize I would far unhappier if I tried to follow these trends. I’d be immensely more self conscious without my death metal cut-off tanks. I’d feel naked without my leather jacket. And god knows how grumpy I’d be without my mohawk and death-chops. I found my artistic inspiration in death metal. I found solitude and bless in black metal. And I found the need to dance with EBM.
Even though it gets to me sometimes, I’m glad I don’t fit in. Anywhere, really.
I know that I won’t fit in the mainstream gay culture and scene with me being hard of hearing and bisexual, but I don’t intend to lie about myself; I hope I’ll find people in the LGBTQIA community who have common taste in music, find linguistics fascinating and are eccentric in their own manners.
