I write a lot
Some of it's really short
Some of it very long
Some of it kinda in between.
My soul bursting with words. Something always needing to be said.
Sometimes I can get these words out, pages without even a breath.
Sometimes they get Stuck in my gut.
Blocked by insecurity and doubt.
But let me tell you,
When I write.
I am free.
And that's enough to keep me going
I bought some “unicorn wings” from the children’s Halloween section of Target, and then (based on a suggestion from a friend) braided my hair into a unicorn horn. The result: I.Am.FABULOUS
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee ☕️
In this hell heat I am worried my head will get burned. It’s got 4 layers of sunscreen on it but still.
The news these past two days has been terrifying. I don’t even have words to explain how angry and scared I am. But I will never change who I am. I am trans. I am non-binary. We are human. We deserve our rights. WE WONT BE ERASED!
Liveblogging from the end of the world. We got each other and that will be enough #enby #wontbeerased
I seriously have no more room or patience for cis people in my life who won't do the work to unpack their privilege and binary bullshit. This includes my biological family. Not with what is happening to us. It wasn't safe before (especially for my multi-marginalized trans/enby siblings), but this is terrifying. I'm so afraid for my trans/enby friends and family. I feel totally beat down and continuously erased. I am too tired. We need to do better. #wewontbeerased #transgender #enby #transisbeautiful #nonbinary
Fait qu’aujourd’hui, j’ai lu un post de quelqu’un qui vivait la même chose que moi, quand on parle de binder Underworks. Le binder ne cachait presque pas sa poitrine, ça avait coûté chère, piiiis ça ne faisait pas du bien.
Pis làaaa la personne avec qui celle-ci partage une relation lui a commandé un binder GC2B. Pis pouf- euphorie de genre, poitrine plate ou presque, pis respire bien, pis toute pis toute!
Vous me l’avez dit et redit: je m’en commande un! #gc2b
here I come!
Je vous tiendrai au courant de ma quête au binder magique!
So today I read this thing about some folk having the same issue that I’m having with the Underworks binder. Being that they bought their first binder, Underworks, and they thought their chest was too big to hide it with any binder- until they had top surgery. And then... their partner ordered them a #gc2b
binder- their chest was or almost flat and they could breathe.
So that’s it folks! You told me to order one- I am doing it.
I’ll keep you updated on my next binderventures! #dysphoria #dysphorie #dysphoriedegenre #genderdysphoria #enby #nonbinary #nonbinaire #lgbt #lgbtq

the sweater and the pants cancel each other out.
Alright, so I figured I may as well go ahead and take another stab at this group account thing, so Imma try and post as often as I can and hopefully get some other folks to help out with this account. Here's my lil intro; my name is Daemon, I'm 17, turning 18 next April, I'm nonbinary trans masc and I'm hella queer. I'm a huge Voltron fan, a band nerd, and I low key have a passion for ballet. I'm also a furry, so I guess if that makes anyone uncomfortable, then don't follow?? But, ehh, ye. You can also find me on my main acc @drunken_giggles
or my art acc @artfaun
If you venture on over to the link in my bio you can find a link to a poem I'm really proud of on my YouTube channel.
If you don't that's okay.
You can just keep catching my obscure posts and bad captions.
I love that we threaten you. We threaten your patriarchal rule. You fear us because you are so tiny that you need to control the lives of others to feel as though you have any power over your own. You don't. When you choose to use your power to undermine and dehumanize others you reveal your own true character of being substanceless. You are nothing on the inside but hate and rot. Your motives are so clearly corrupt that this time you dare not even breath religion as an excuse. Religion is not behind this. Only tiny men in power who are terrified of losing it.
I bear scars across my chest, and they tell part of my story. They only reveal a small aspect; history of chest dysphoroia. But that is all. Nothing more is learned. By the scars across my chest you cannot determine my gender. By the genitals between my legs you cannot define my gender. By the looks across the faces of millions live, and millions more already gone, you cannot determine anyone's gender. The doctors cannot determine nor define the gender of any of the hundreds of intersex humans born each day. Just becuase we don't fit in to your two boxes doesn't mean that we don't fit in on this planet. We are non-binary. We are intersex. We are trans and binary. We are agender. We are bigender. We are what we say we are and no one can ever take that away from us. Certainly not politicians who's only job is truly supposed to be to respect the will of the people. We exist and we are not going anywhere. #WeWontBeErased #fuckTrump #youcantdeleteus #transgender #intersex #nonbinary #genderneutral #GenderQueer #enby #thisiswhattranslookslike #breakthebinary #vitaminT #testosterone #queer #lgbtqia #LetsGetByTogether #transmasculine #Vermont #boyslikeus #ftm #ftx #mtf #alltransbodies
The last time I wore this shirt in public, just a few weeks ago, a well meaning person asked: “What does your shirt mean? Because it isn’t illegal to be transgender, is it?” It caught me by surprise because I sometimes forget that it isn’t everyone’s everyday struggle to navigate a world that wasn’t built for and constantly tries to erase them.
Trans people have never been fully legally recognized. We can and should critique the fact that legal recognition only goes so far—we also need to change hearts and minds...and oppressive systems. But trans people often struggle for the bare minimum of legal recognition that so many cisgender people often take for granted. Birth certificates, passports, drivers licenses, student ID cards, really any form of identification that has our true names and genders is often out of reach, expensive, or literally impossible to obtain. Lack of basic legal recognition of who we know ourselves to be is a daily injustice many of us face.
The presidential administration’s newest proposed policy would further encode and worsen these already existing injustices that trans people already have to navigate. Now is the time to fight, to be loud, to refuse to be silenced. #WeWillNotBeErased
To my trans fam: you are valid. You are worthy. You are real. You are strong. You are needed. You are loved. No government or policy or hateful person can take that away from you. Let’s fight like hell until they stop even trying.
We love some late-night confidence 👌 ~ 🐀
How strange it is to think I once had so much hair.

Since finding the therian/otherkin community in 2010, I have learned so many new things about myself. I have grown so much as a person and I’ve met some amazing people that have helped me find my way along this crazy journey to self discovery.
But with growth comes change and with change comes letting go.
By definition, I am otherkin and otherhearted. Theres no changing or denying that. But I’ve realized that my experiences and identity go far beyond those labels and there are many other things in my life that are not defined so simply; let alone at all. It’s with that that I officially renounce the otherkin and otherhearted labels and instead adopt Alterhuman to describe the parts of my being that are not what you would consider typically human. So much was off-limits to me before. I couldn’t share my whole truth without fearing others would come down hard on me for not living up to the otherkin standard. Now, I have no restrictions what-so-ever and it truly is the definition of freedom. I thought I was free when I started using otherkind instead of otherkin, but I never even scratched the surface until now.
I’ve always compared myself and others to trees. Because we have more in common than many realize. But until now, I never understood just how literal to comparison is. I am tree. Just when I think I’ve fully grown, that I can’t possibly grow anymore, I do. And it’s the most marvelous thing in the entire world to look back at the tiny sprout I was just a few years ago, barely enough roots to keep me from falling over in the breeze, and now I’m an entire forest. My network of roots traveling so far and deep, my branches extending and intertwining together so securely, that not even the most disastrous of storms could break me.
It is that comparison that I will keep with me along my alterhuman journey. Even when I want to be otherkin again, even when things become so confusing and messy that I want to go back to the simple time when I only had one animal-self and the otherhearted term wasnt even invented yet.

Twilight vibes 🏡
I had a strange bi-location shift as my werewolf-self recently while trying to fall asleep and I thought, since its been a little while since I really talked about many experiences and shifts, that I would share it with you guys now.
I was laying in my bed, trying to sleep, as I said, and out of no where, it was like my body split into two - one half the human one laying in bed, the other half my werewolf form standing outside of my bedroom window. I could see through both sets of eyes and felt sensations from both bodies. My werewolf-self started to trot toward the part of my territory closest to my house, a little patch of woods in the middle of a field, and I could smell the night air, feel the wind in my fur, hear the birds above me. The ground was cold but dry, which made me feel a little disappointment because I wanted to feel the mud between my claws. I got to the trees and started sniffing around this small area of grass and weeds that’s basically the entrance to the woods and I just kept looking around and trying to understand everything. Eventually I guess I just fell asleep because I don’t really remember anything else. But the vivid reality of this shift is something I’m honestly still in shock over. It was pretty cool. Usually my bi-location shifts happen in the car and I’ll see and feel myself in non-human form running along side us as we drive. So to have this kind of shift was a bit of a change.

Sometimes I throw stupid words at you in hopes that maybe you feel something.
Sometimes I throw stupid words at you just because if I don't my soul feels like it's burning with things unspoken.
Sometimes I throw stupid words at you because I have some silly idea that my words will live longer than I ever can.
I don't feel comfortable being femme in a school or work place. Plus I don't want to add to their confusion of me being a transguy. If I get hired after my internship I'll be their first transgender employee!! Guy at work, non-binary at home and chilling. I wonder if I'll ever be comfortable mixing it up. Who knows 🤗
Good luck trying to define me out of existence, I’m gonna keep making myself pretty fucking obvious in the meantime by, you know. Existing. 💗💙 the irony is that I just finished the background music for a song that directly relates to this concept. Whether it’s been from personal experience or through comments left on my comic, what’s really obvious is that trans people are unfortunately used to our existence being questioned on a daily, sometimes minute to minute basis. The difference now is that by potentially opening more national floodgates — normalizing more bullshit excuses, rationalizing more HATRED from the people supposed to lead our country — it could lead to more uneducated beliefs that ultimately can harm or end more trans lives. We will not take any part in that. We’re going to fight this, and if you’re feeling alone, if you’re already afraid to come out, if you’ve been out but this scares the crap out of you, even if you’re feeling a sense of empowering injustice, I HAVE YOUR BACK. We will never be separated. No government can UNdefine our existence. No group of people can tear us apart based on illogical fears. I’m here, I’ll always be here, no matter what happens. The lgbtq+ community was founded by black trans women, never forget that. Thanks to them, we have a voice, and those of us who are safe enough and willing to use it are going to keep using it. .
