I just told one of my brothers via skype how my gender has been mostly girl lately.
As I expected it doesn’t matter to him. He asked my why I had told my parents via mail - because it’s really really hard.. - and he acknowledged that. And that I might have to wait some time for my parents to accept it.
Then we wen’t on talking about other stuff.
I guess that’s good :)
As I maybe mentioned, I’ve been helping out at a Japan-oriented convention recently.
And there was this one - in my perspective - horribly transphobic lecture.
Consisting of statements like “but *really* they are women”.
I know that there might be other concepts of genders in Japan than there are in my country. But nevertheless this just sounded wrong.
So I’m currently doing research on “Japan & (Trans-)Gender”, as I’d like to clear up misconceptions and generelly get more knowledgeable on this topic. And also I’d like to give my own lecture at the next convention xP
If anyone knows some good sources, I’d be pleased if you sent them to me :)

I have that exact DW print! where did you get your necklace from?? X
Oh cool, I really liked this particular episode :)
The necklace is from F&F in Bratislava.

Wow, that coat is super cute. It’s definitely not cold enough for a coat, though.
Oh yeah, and it’s getting warmer by the hour. I’ll have to carry it home ^_^
