I’m aware of the 60s ad campaign. And yeah, I know the Cub family tree is a bit convoluted. Read more

I had a pretty supposedly typical (if very boring) suburban high school experience. Koguma is an extreme example, but even with my interests and my friends, there wasn’t a lot to do. It was mostly just housing divisions. Walking or biking was possible only to one of my friend’s houses, because, you know, sprawl. You Read more

My understanding, it is very much a third hand kind of understanding, even as someone lives in Japan, is that it is possible to quasi-emancipate from the foster care system at 16, if you either go to work or continue school.

I can answer this now. I pay about $1000/mo for a studio in the city. At the time of this article, I had a two bedroom townhouse with internet and parking for $600/mo.

Now I live in Tokyo and commute OUT of the city. MUCH BETTER. Empty trains are best trains.

You are not alone. Many trans women, especially later transitioners with more restrictive childhoods have this experience. The issue is when the objectors try to make it seem as though all trans women have this experience of obvious male socialisation. It doesn’t undermine your transness or your womanhood, but it is Read more

Eh... I believe it. Precisely because it would be classic Apple. If Apple thinks USB-C is the way to go, they’ll go all in.
