Hello friends and possible new friends too! I have something awesome and cool and also extremely important (to me) here for you. Please take a look.
Yo. I am Kye. :P Okay. So if you weren’t yet aware, I am transgender, FtM. I’m pretty open about it, since I don’t really feel it’s something to hide or be ashamed of, although that doesn’t mean it’s not extremely difficult for me. It has been becoming exceedingly difficult for me to deal with, and my dysphoric panic attacks, insecurity about my body and voice, and other related issues are becoming worse and worse by the week. I was almost able to start hormones before, however my attempts were sabotaged by my parents. Due to current situations and other fairly serious issues, I am unable to work, I applied for disability but was denied, and thus am unable to get any income. However my transition is still something that is extremely important for me, more so than anything else, as is getting out of the current situation I am in. Not only do I have my transition to save up for, I also have a fair number of pets to take care of, that I really adore and honestly and seriously cannot live without. However my current and main focus right now, is earning enough money to start hormones, since that is the first step, and I have a goal and a timeline planned for when I hope to have at least started this process. (I hope to have at least started this process by October 2014). I don’t even have a binder. x.x I’ve been using ace bandages and sports bras whenever I have to.
My family is extremely unsupportive of my gender identity and pretty much everything about me (not to mention abusive and psycho-controlling), and have made it so that I am unable to drive by never allowing me to learn, keeping me almost totally reliant on them for transportation, which has also made it so that I am unable to move out of their house as well, without outside help. Despite this, I tend to do my best to be as self reliant and independent as possible, getting things done myself as much as possible. Unfortunately, with today’s economy (in the USA especially where I am), there are severe limitations on what you can do and how you can earn money for anything, and for most things, you have to HAVE money to be able gain the necessary skills to better EARN money. It’s a lose/lose situation in my case.
So this is where you come in, tumblr community. I have something to offer you, in exchange for you helping me. I have opened a shop with specially designed t-shirts that hopefully you all will like, which for each sale of the shirts in my shop, I get a percentage of it. I will be adding more as time goes on, so be sure to check back every so often to see what new items have been added. I will also take requests of shirts you may want made or created, so feel free to send me an ask.
Here is the link to my shop (depending on when items were submitted, they may not show up for a day or so after they are submitted so please keep that in mind.) http://www.zazzle.com/transgenderation
A few of my favorites so far:
And please please please. Even if you can’t buy one at the moment, or if they are not your taste, please signal boost / reblog this, because this is really not a small issue. I have great faith in you, tumblr community, so please help me make at least part of my dream come true?
