So, Friday night I tell my step-mom I’m genderfluid, right? Well, Saturday morning she gives me a ride to work, and in the car she’s like “so, you measured yourself for the binder right? It wasn’t guess work?” And I told her yes, I measured myself. Then she asks “okay and you know the limitations on binders? Like how long to wear it and stuff?” Again I say yes, and I even have stretching tips and stuff to help out and stuff like that. She goes “okay, well also, I looked into this last night so I could know how to help, that a common side effect is fluid backing up into your lungs, so they say that when you take it off, you should cough deeply, even raise your arms above your head to help, so you can get it out.”
The entire car ride was her telling me everything she looked up and different tips, and honestly I couldn’t stop smiling at work that day
In case you didn’t know, so far this year USA Hockey has won:
Women’s world championship
The only loss in all of these tournaments was to Canada in the preliminary rounds of the women’s U-18s, where we ended up beating them in the finals. In every other tournament the US was undefeated. Try and tell me how the US isn’t a hockey country again?
i love when a photo is Happy Blurry. like, the people were so overcome with joy and caught up in the moment that a camera can’t capture it clearly. i’d like to think it’s because nothing can quite encapsulate true love.
