trans* symbol

This scene probably doesn’t mean a whole lot to everyone but the struggle of deciding whether or not to use one or another restroom sticks with trans people. Yes, she’s struggling with which alien bathroom to use, it’s heavily hinted trans symbolism as well. At some point in time every trans person will consider which one they should use. While this is an alien bathroom the symbolism still sticks, especially after season 1 depicting Pidge as a trans girl through the words she uses. It’s all subtext, yes, it’s not “canon,” no, but I see Pidge as a trans girl new into her identity, surrounded by loving and caring friends who support her. Pidge is important and could really help normalize transness, there’s other characters with the same kinda symbolism that can help normalize transness, it’s whether or not that the writers want to give us canon proof or not.

@queergraffiti I was fucking fed up with the homophobia and transphobia at my school, so of course I turned to good old-fashioned bathroom vandalism to spread some positivity :)

Ok I was rewatching gravity falls and realized that during Love God that A. Mabel was wearing a rainbow sweater (not really significant but still) and B. That Love God’s necklace was a gender symbol, not sure whether it was a trans symbol or agender but it was one of those. Ok yes the rainbow sweater notice was pointless but the necklace was not. It shows that Disney can be progress enough to do stuff like that (So hope for trans marco)

Day 25 - 31DaysOfTransVisibility

Talk about symbols. Do you ever fly the colors of any LGBT+ or gender identity flag in a symbolic way? Do you wear jewelry, buttons, patches, or other accessories that telegraph your being trans? Do you have any LGBT or gender identity related tattoos? Are they usually visible or hidden under clothing?

I don’t own any pride flags however i do have two pronoun pins . One is just basic white text on a pink background , the other incorperates the pansexual flag … that one is my favourite. I also have my trans symbol tattoo on my wrist that i had done in october 2015 . The date on the side is when i first started hormones, which was an important step for me in discovering and being happy with my identity . This year i want to have it modified by adding a strike through the centre of the circle , to awknowledge the absence of the gender binary .

For Manuary, I decided to help out my fellow trans guys who happen to be pre t with their voices. There is this app made for training your voice if you are trans, but it’s expensive (4.99) and you need to download the different lessons… and since I’m poor I’m not spending 5 bucks on an app.

HOWEVER there is this free app called Voice Pitch Analyzer! It has the trans symbol, and how it works is it has you read a passage that talked about a minute depending on how quick of a reader you are. While you read it monitors your pitch and give you your voice range and how you sound to most people on a scale of female to male with androgynous in the middle. It’s a great way to test how your vocal training is working and how close you are too the voice you want!

Carla Lewis, a 44-year-old trans woman in Tennessee who served in the U.S. military, shared this photo on her Facebook recently. The photo says it all. (via the Huffington Post)

I felt like drawing the transgender symbol, only to go a little overboard with it. Hey, the symbol by itself was kinda plain. Anyways, for any non-Italians, the necklace dangling from the trans* symbol is an Italian Horn Amulet(AKA The Corno or Cornicello.) This Horn is an amulet of good luck used for protection against the evil eye. We all need some good luck and protection while we move forward through our lives, especially us trans folks.
