Flesh & bone

All of this has happened before, and all of this will happen again

All this has happened before, and all this will happen again

Abandoned to adoption at 7mths old. I didn’t have a bad adoption – my afamily are the best I could ever have chosen… but if I’d been able to choose, I’d’ve chosen to be aborted instead. At least then the lifetime of agony would’ve been over in minutes/hours/days, instead of the decades that I’ve been suffering for now.

Abandoned early 1973. Reunited late 2009.

Adoption – because “legalised child abandonment” just doesn’t bring in the punters.

If I could’ve @ 6 like I wanted @patienceinbee @cisnormativity it’d’ve worked cuz the #socialisation would’ve been included. 2 late 4 me now

It’s the same as being an adoptee – I’m both and neither.

The great revelation of 2011: not every child is cisgender, and not every child has a cissexual body.

Stop the presses. Or something.

It should be qualified somewhat: this was the biggest revelation of 2011 to a cisnormative audience and to cis people individually. For trans people who have (with gruelling patience) watched all of this cis fascination over trans children suddenly entering the cisnormative consciousness, one superlative of all superlatives emerged: this was the biggest non-story of our trans lives.

As trans people, we’ve been shrewdly aware of this knowledge for generations. For many, that knowledge is pretty clear throughout our entire conscious lives. For others, it lingers, nudges, and prods in the background until something — a particular event or an epiphany — forces us to confront and affirm it.
