I’m a big fan of tattoos, but I would say that a good fifty percent of the tattoos I see make me ask, “Why in the world would you want that emblazoned upon your body forever and always?”
I won’t link to any because that would be mean, and because I’m sure there are people who would feel that way about the tattoos I’d like to get in the future.
However, if there’s a big horrible thing staring back at me from your arm, it is going to severely decrease our chances of ever having sex.
It’s a discussion that warrants more than the character count tumblr gives me, but suffice to say people have a habit of saying they want something, getting it, changing their mind, and suing, so everything medical is full of gauntlets. :C
Yeah, I just don’t know what it is that he wants to hear from me that will make him confident that I’m not one of those people.
I had my first appointment today with the therapist who will hopefully write me a letter to begin HRT. I chose him because my doctor recommended him, and because he is also trans so I figured he’d be a eh pretty cool guy who doesn’t afraid of anything.
I like him a lot but he said it’ll probably be three or four appointments before he can write me a letter, and my next appointment is two weeks from now. D:
Also he gave me this really long questionnaire to fill out, and most of it is like, “What stuff did you want to do as a kid that you couldn’t because of your assigned gender?” going through all the different stages of your childhood. It’s like, dude, I don’t fuckin’ know. I was a kid, I didn’t give a shit as long as I didn’t have to wear a dress. Now I’m paranoid that since I didn’t come out of the womb going, “HAY GUISE I’M A MAN” that he’ll view me as “not trans enough.”
And then there’s questions like, “With the many irreversible effects of HRT or of surgery, what indication can you give that you have considered these consequences and are fully aware of them?” I don’t know, what indication CAN I give? Is the fact that I am here requesting you write me a letter to begin HRT not indication enough?
Yeah, when you get to the end of Tali’s mission and they ask if you have any evidence, choose the paragon or renegade conversation option instead. :P
My renegade score wasn’t high enough. D: I guess I’ll go around doing some sidequests and being a jerk for a while.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
If I want to get Tali’s loyalty (and the achievement that comes with it) I have to redo my last three hours of gameplay. Because I guess a dead guy’s honor is more important than her being a member of society? I love you Tali, but sometimes you’re a retard.
I DID SO MUCH SCANNING ASDLFKJSLKDJFSD
Seriously. The scanning thing is terrible game design. HERE HAVE THIS INCREDIBLY REPETITIVE TASK THAT YOU HAVE TO DO IF YOU WANT TO NOT SUCK
I SURE DO LOVE HOLDING DOWN THE L TRIGGER AND PUSHING CONTROL STICKS IN ONE DIRECTION FOR HOURS ON END
I want to fucking murder people who honk at me for stopping before making a right on red. Yeah, I see that there are no cars coming. That still doesn’t mean you don’t have to stop! I’m not getting a ticket just because you’re too stupid to know what the law is!
