This is probably going to be the last post on here for a very long time.
As you are aware, I haven’t posted since April and it has been for very good reason. I had complications after my surgery and it became very exhausting to exist both physically and emotionally. I made a fuck ton of mistakes, I fucked up a chunk of my life and ended up with a huge infection that hasn’t even been spotted by doctors for a good 6 weeks or so.
Then a lot of trans peoples sites started to get doxxed – mainly by TERFs and I found out that my twitter was listed on a thing that TERFs use – so I did what was best and shut down for a very long time. Kids, don’t get involved in protests and politics unless you prepare yourself for the worst case.
I started panicking and loosing my love of doing this. I hated looking at what I had created and I hated myself. This became a reminder of the one thing I thought I was over but it wasn’t. It was a stark reminder of my rage, my frustration, and I no longer felt good about it.
I will be keeping this up – because one day I would like to come back to this. I also know that lots of people use this as a source of information and I appreciate that.
In other news, Kai, myself and a good friend of ours (who has guest posted several times here) are starting a new website. We have a name and once the final bits are sorted I will be posting a link to it, and I hope as many of you as possible come and join us for this new adventure. It is something we are looking forward to starting and we finally have zero constraints on what we can and cannot write anymore which is a bonus.
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank every one for their love and support over the what, four years this ran?! And who knows. I might come back to this.
Much love and support to all of you

PS – For all those haters who are so happy that this is over – the new project is 200% more content with some of our best posts thrown in, with a support network that’s amazing, backing from a group with 7500 members and a fuck ton of friends willing to help – so no, this isn’t the end of me.. Yet.
