A Look Back at My Boston Years

I grew up surrounded by Boston accents. Today, a person with that infamous identifier has died: Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

He was the only mayor in my Boston “lifetime.” When I became an official resident of the city in 2002, Menino had already been mayor for almost a decade. 504 more words

New Narratives

George Davis reblogged this on TRANS RESEARCH and commented:

This is an amazing article from a trans woman about healing and becoming connected to your body. She discusses dissociation, embodiment, walking meditation, doing a body scan, and dance. One of my deep convictions is that we need more research on multiple therapies for gender dysphoria. We lack studies, but we do have personal research from trans people's lives. From the article:

This is Not About Detransition

This is about helping you feel embodied.  Maybe that was your initial hope in transition?  I have transitioned, and it didn’t fix these dissociated symptoms.  Anecdotally most trans women I know still struggle with these issues after transition.  It’s important to remember that dissociation is a coping mechanism that we learn.  It makes sense that learned behavior would carry through transition.  I don’t care if you detransition or don’t.   I care that you heal.  Do what you want to do, with open eyes.
