Yep, love it! It's the most famous example of language experiments of this kind.

voice resources for trans people on T 

This article was just published a few months ago. It has a detailed timeline of voice changes.

I just decided my weirder.earth should be my art account, while my dragon.style should be my personal account.

It would be cool if more of us therians and otherkin started making our careers in developing technologies for the morphological freedoms that we want.

@Taylor

hehehe

I look forward to any scientific progress that folks might work toward in that subject!

Just posted today, "Cast, page 1" is the newest page of Theri There, my comic about therians and otherkin. You can read it (with accessible transcript) and write comments at:

oh wow, that is exactly how I feel about hand-knit socks that I've been given.

Gender hormone therapy question 

I’m considering microdosing T with the gel but I have no idea where to start. Does anyone know if there’s a guide, a text hotline, an organization for Black trans people, or resources on Tik Tok of Black or Blasian trans people talking about microdosing T?

I’m curious about permanent changes as well as good things to know, I’m just wanting to affirm my enby identity a bit more

Folks who are considering transition and unsure how to start or what options exist: you can DM me questions about your transition. I'm no doctor or lawyer, so I can't give medical or legal advice, but I can help you develop more useful questions you can ask your doctors and other professionals, and guide you to relevant reading.

"Stop!! Hibari-Kun" is a romantic comedy anime series with a trans woman protagonist who is written well, as this fan describes; your friend might check out some other anime this fan writes about too: comicsbyxan.com/comic/hibari/

If your friend is interested in documentaries too, "TransGeneration" is a documentary series that follows several real trans women and trans men during a year of college. It's generally a positive experience that ends on a happy note. The most depressing/triggering things I recall about it is that it mentions that one person attempted suicide at one point, but they don't go into further detail about it, and she recovers from it okay. There are occasional encounters with transphobia from family and institutions, but iirc none of it takes the form of violence.

I'd also recommend the following two romantic comedy movies about gay drag queens, which have no characters who are specifically described as trans, but they're not depressing, and nothing really bad happens to any queer characters. They're *really* feel-good movies with queer protagonists, where everybody lives happily ever after.

"The Birdcage," about a gay couple (one of whom is a drag queen) who own a gay nightclub, who get asked by their son to temporarily pass as straight. It has a few scenes using morbid humor, but they don't come off as being genuinely disturbing.

"To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar," about drag queens who get stuck in a rural town in the middle of a road trip. It has several serious not-supposed-to-be-funny scenes about domestic violence, bad cops, family disownment, threats of sexual assault, and homophobia! But the bad guys who perpetrate those things generally get comeuppance, and the good guys are completely victorious.
