22) Do you feel being trans holds you back from your career choice?
Career choice? I have a degree in Philosophy; my career choice is “do whatever it takes not to starve”.
23) What stereotypes are put on trans people?
That we’re perverts, confused and/or just really, really gay. That we’re brave, rebellious and inspiring. That we’re not “really” women/men because CHROMOSOMES, MAN. That we’ll sleep with anybody because we have no self esteem and we should be thankful that anybody finds us attractive. That we’re fair game for all kinds of rude and invasive questions because we’re oddities and freaks, and thus the usual rules of respect and politeness don’t apply to us. That we’re drama queens. That we don’t have feelings.

Pics, musings and adventures of a 30-something Spanish trans woman living in the amazing city of Berlin, Germany! My favourite things are fashion, music, ranting, puppies and Satan; I hate jeans with sneakers, Glasgow, gun nuts, Tumblr Social Justice and Lou Reed.
Reborn on the 13th of September, 2012. You can click on the HRT tab above for a chronicle of sorts of the physical/biological aspects of my transition.
Since most of my posts are pics of me, ramblings or answers to submissions, whenever I see something that I like on Tumblr I usually add it to my "likes" instead of reblogging it, so in a way it's like having two blogs in one :) You can see the whole list if you scroll down a bit and click on "see more stuff I like".
PSA: chasers, creeps, sh*m*le porn collectors and "tr*nny lovers", stay the fuck away from my blog!
