    Because Imgur decided to block their images from being hosted on giantitp.com.

    Hi, all! I've just recently realized my non-cis-ness.
    Every day, society tries to tell me I don't exist, because it believes in only two genders. Every day, I quietly give society the finger, simply by continuing to exist.

    And now, a word from our sponsor.

    A crafty young bard named McMahon,
    whose poetry never would scan,
    once said, with a pause,
    It's probably because z
    I'm always trying to cram as many extra syllables into the last line as I possibly can.

    Make sure to rub in their face all of the cute clothes and bras you can wear that they can't. Oh, don't want bras in white, black or nude? TOO BAD.

    As of New Years, I am unemployed.
    I'm going to try to become an author, since I am afraid of working for someone else again. It seems like it ends horribly when I do.

    I came out to almost everyone who knows me today My dad writes a "family newsletter" every year before Christmas, about what we've done and what happened this year, and sends it to all our relatives and friends, and this year I wrote a short coming out letter and asked him to please send it along with the family newsletter. So once it reaches everyone (most people get it per email, but a bunch of mostly older relatives get it per snail mail) I'll officially be out to everyone.

    So...

    My mother passed away suddenly the day after Thanksgiving. (Nov 23 for those not in the US.) A friend of my father wrote the obituary for the newspaper where they lived and the newspaper where they spent most of their adult lives and where I grew up. (My parents moved a few years after they retired.)

    The orbit has me listed as their son, under my new name. While I was staying with Dad for the first memorial service, I got a friend request on Facebook from someone I knew in high school, M. She told me her mom (who was a teacher at that high school) had figured out how to find me (probably through the orbit) and told the person messaging me. M went on to say she understood if I didn't want to accept the friend request because I wanted to stay hidden. Given how supportive she was, I accepted. Within a few days, I had about 10 more friend requests from high school classmates.

    I had been debating going to the memorial in the town where I grew up because I wasn't sure how it would go over. After the support I got, I decided to go. (It is this weekend.)

    In addition, my 25th high school reunion is next year. I skipped my 20th because my parents still lived in the town where I grew up, and I didn't want to put them in an awkward position. I was not sure if I would go to my 25th because I didn't want to deal with drama. Now it seems likely I will go.

    Thanks! Tbh, I'm not too concerned about how everyone will take it I've already been out to all the important people for much longer, so this is really just for extended family and friends. The only reason I haven't done this sooner is that my grandma was still alive last year (I don't think she would have reacted badly, but she was really old and not that well mentally, so I didn't want to confuse her with this). But of course I still hope nobody's going to be a **** about it, even if I rarely see any of them, it would suck to know that my family is full of transphobes (but I don't think it is). In any case, I've already gotten two positive replies (from my nephews mother and an old friend of my father; not directly though, the wrote to my dad and dad told me what they wrote).

    I just watched Incredibles 2, and holy hell they are not subtle about their queer allegories.

    And then I read a series of unbelievably wholesome fan comics about the blatantly queer character, and I'm actually crying from the adorable.

    <3 casual representation - even though it's never explicitly said that she's queer, its so very blatant that no queer person looking for representation could possibly miss it.

    Kindle and Smashwords (ergo, 'most everywhere else' - Smashwords and its competitor Draft2Digital distribute to various non-Amazon retailers). I don't know how much information about title/author I can give out here, given that it's under a pen name so I wouldn't be giving personal information.

    Well, you should give some thoughts about how you will advertise and how you will drive sales. The usual problem is that successful sales will drive further sales because your product (and yourself) will gain more visibility (rankings, recommendations and such). Ex: Spam your facebook profile and twitter account, get into WhatsApp groups of like-minded people and announce it there, anything to get this all-important initial boost.

    That...sounds bad. Is are they directing their homophobia towards you or just towards other people?
