Friends Only

June 20th, 2010 (11:02 am)

This journal is here for me to keep track of my thoughts and feelings as I transition emotionally, mentally, socially and physically. Originally, I actually made this journal just for myself and to keep my therapist up to date with my gender thoughts.

Since this journal contains some very personal thoughts, I'd rather keep it friends-locked. It's pretty much going to be like an online diary, and I'd be fine if nobody else read it at all, really. I don't expect or need comments on my entries, though they are welcome!

Everything I update will be related to my gender identity and the process of discovery, coming out, transitioning, etc. I may often post obscenely long entries since I'm not censoring myself in terms of length. Oh, and I get repetitive sometimes when I dwell on certain thoughts, ha.

With this in mind, please feel free to add me if you're still interested. If we haven't had some previous correspondence, comment below to introduce yourself and I'll friend you. :)

Yo. I saw your comment here, and I don't know about the OP, but I'd love to take you up on that offer. XD

I don't know what the fuck I identify as anymore, but it's leaning toward something fairy-ish. Hurr hurr.

ah I have those what-the-fuck-am-I moments too. But I always know I'm a fairy ;)

Hi hi! I saw your posts over at queer_rage and transgender. I'm a lurker, not really a poster, though. XD Sorry about the parents of the children you baby sit. D= contrats on the T, though!!

Interested in being friends? =D FtM, gay, and most days pretty femme, other days not. XD You seem like a pretty cool person, and your layout is so CUTE!

My name is Dren, I'm just a tiny bit obsessed with The Who and Def Leppard. I pretty much use my journal for rants, ramblings, and to post fanfics! ^^ I don't censor myself either. O_O <3

Hi! I was reading through the archives of genderqueer_ftw and saw some of your posts. I'm using my journal for pretty much the same purpose (although I haven't been updating as much as I should) and I'm always really interested in reading other people's experiences.

I just saw this! You sent this message on a day when I was traveling and in and out of airports so I must have missed it. Hm, I don't remember what I've posted in genderqueer_ftw...could you link me? haha.

You've seen me in ftmvanity and I loved your recent post there. We should be friends.

Your picture looks familiar but I don't remember exactly where I saw you. Do you have a link?

Added you regardless. :) I'm glad you liked my post!

Hi :) I saw you over the ftm community, and I liked your username, peeked at your profile and it seems like I'll enjoy reading your journal. I, too, have gender identity issues — in my case, it's really issues, since I've found out about the whole lot of gendery labels very recently. Add?

I'm reading through some of your recent posts and just like ... yes. Thank you for existing, you articulate a lot of things I feel. Haha. If that doesn't sound too creepy.

Aw no that's not creepy at all! It's awesome to hear that you relate to some of the stuff I write about :)

Would love to be friends. I have always felt like a boy growing up and was born with way more T then any girl should have. I can grow a beard and mustach with no problem giggles.

Hey. I'm jealous! Still working on my mustache. :)

I'll add you so you can see my entries, but: it looks like you post a lot of memes and things like that. I don't know of a way for you to add me without you showing up on my friends page. So, if I just go ahead and add you, can you -not- add me back? Weird request I know....tell me if that doesn't make sense!

Posted at: December 6th, 2010 03:59 am (UTC)

hahah. yay, added! my journal is very confused and angsty, it's all good. I wouldn't say very many people's journals are UBER EXCITING TO READ ALL THE TIME.

Just so you know though, I'm not gay nor an FTM haha. I'm trans, but not female-to-male. And I'm super duper gay but interested in ladyfolk too. xD

Added :) I don't really update very often anymore, or post things that are nearly as interesting as the stuff I used to post. I did, however, by some fluke, post today. Hah.

Impersonation

I realize that having a complete stranger request access to your private journal might seem creepy, especially when said stranger has never interacted with you before or been on any of your LJ communities. However, I'm willing to be that creepy stranger because:
1) I've recently realized that I am genderqueer and might, in the far distant future when I'm no longer chickensh*t, become a trans man; and
2) I desperately need to surround myself with people who have gone through this experience. Ideally I would have done this 'in real life', but that's not an option because where I live trans people simply do not exist. Anywhere that's visible, at any rate.

And so this creepy but harmless stranger humbly requests an add, but would completely understand if you're too creeped out to accept the request :)
