And this is for all of those who waken up #early and thought “Today is gonna be a good day” and than took a kind of #scarry #moment like this #shark #shadow in a #barrel. #fake or #real?! // E essa é pra todos que acordaram cedo, acharam que o dia iria ser tranquilo e tomaram um susto parecido com o que esse cara deve ter tomado quando viu a sombra desse tubarão de dentro do #tubo.

egg mode #0: remember that weird shit you were into? 

egg mode is a new zine for trans women to anonymously share some of our pre-transition selves. the first issue focuses on pre-transition sexuality, especially the things that are harder to talk about because they overlap with transmisogynistic tropes, or because they challenge a narrative of unalloyed dysphoria, maybe there was some stuff that we liked. some of these things are weird, embarrassing, a little silly, plain slapstick. we’re interested in a lighthearted approach. this isn’t the best place to present very traumatic material, but will unavoidably go to some difficult places. cw in advance.

the editors hope that some suffering egg or babytrans will recognize themselves in these stories. you’re really trans, if you want to be.

what to write about:

  • dissociated sex
  • sex we secretly liked
  • cartoons (furry, anime, tentacles, steven universe)
  • fetishes (nullification, forced feminization, inferiority)
  • things you never went through with
  • things you wish you never went through with
  • i don’t know, whatever you want

who should submit:

trans women or people comfortable being identified as part of a group of trans women. anyone under the heel of transmisogyny. your self-identification will not be challenged or questioned.
