Queer Spaces

This past Saturday I had to deal with the unfortunate task of getting my car fixed. As someone new to my area, I did not know where to go so I trusted my overlord, Google. I found two shops that seemed compatible of price and quality, even equidistant from where I live. How did I … Continue reading Queer Spaces

Oh, Allies

Last Sunday, I had an interesting time at my church. I sat behind this woman, who after hearing her speak for the first time, I began to question whether or not she was trans, and by the end leaned more towards her being another trans person. I figured that she knew I was as well … Continue reading Oh, Allies

Was I ever a boy?

This is the question that’s been on my mind since a friend shared blog post with me from another transgender writer. I know what some of you will think to this question “Duh, Macie, that’s kind of the whole point of transitioning”, or “Of course Macie, you are and always were a girl.” While I … Continue reading Was I ever a boy?

Us v Them

Monday Night after my trans social group (since it's Spring Break and able to do something after) I was taken out to a drag show for the first and (probably) last time in my life.

Lenten Reflections 1

For those of us in the more traditional side of Western Christianity, we have reached roughly the halfway mark of Lent. As an Episcopalian and self-proclaimed amateur theologian, I could not maintain a blog without at least one post about this season of the liturgical calendar.

Coming Out

Hey y'all, I hope everyone is having a great day! So today, unless you're reading this in the future, is National Coming Out Day. A time, to, be honest I am not entirely sure. Anyway, as someone only out to their parents and an online community, I have already had a wide variety of responses … Continue reading Coming Out

The Power of Words

Hey y'all! I hope everyone is having a great day. I know it's been a minute since I made a post. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me". That is one of the first idioms that you learn as a child about how to deal with bullies and people … Continue reading The Power of Words

What Dysphoria Feels Like (to me)

Hey y'all, I hope everyone is having a great day! I was actually really going to write about something else, but started feeling dysphoric so I changed my mind. Dysphoria is ultimately what this whole thing is about, after all, it's called gender dysphoria. The actual definition of dysphoria, according to Merriam-Webster, is "a state … Continue reading What Dysphoria Feels Like (to me)
