    If You Can't Take HRT

    If You Can't Take HRT

    If there's a medical reason (or any other reason) that makes HRT impossible for you, are you screwed? Thanks to a great question sent in by listener N.R. whose pulmonary embolism makes HRT too risky for her, Faith and Kath discuss what other options exist. They also think up terrible metaphors.  
    You can have an excellent stew without meat.  Seriously, try it.  We're not even vegan and we love this recipe.

    Faith's New Dirtypillows

    Faith's New Dirtypillows

     
    BREASTS! Faith discusses her recent breast augmentation surgery: the ordeal itself (not bad), the immediate followup (kind of bad), and the weeks since then (not great, but getting better every day). Next time they tell you to grow a pair, just say "no thanks. I'll BUY a pair!"  No, wait, don't say that.  That's weird.

    Supporting A Gender-Questioning Partner

    Supporting A Gender-Questioning Partner

    Awesome partner Jenny asked us "I was wondering if you could discuss the gender spectrum a bit and what it means to be gender questioning. My partner doesn't really know how they feel but they know that they don't feel entirely their assigned gender. As a straight cis woman, I am having a really hard time understanding these feelings and what to do, if anything, to support them in helping them figure out what makes them most comfortable." We discuss how labels can be both helpful and unhelpful, the kinds of questions necessary, what societal strictures should be ignored, and the frustrations Jenny's partner may encounter.
    There's a great guide to figuring out a non-binary identity from Micah at Everyday Feminism.

    Faith Gets Triggered

    Faith Gets Triggered

    Sorry about the dog noises. They think they deserve peanut butter to keep them quiet whenever the microphone is out.  We're trying to break that habit.
    Scarlett Johanssen has said some regrettable things.
    Faith loves the movie Gattaca and if you haven't seen it, or it's been a while, you should at least watch the preview.

    Wearing The Trans Flag 101

    Wearing The Trans Flag 101

     
     
    Gaysper is an adorable gay ghost with his own twitter account. Faith made Kath a trans flag Gaysper tshirt. What are the rules for cis allies wearing trans gear? Or even for trans people wearing trans gear? Is it safe?  Does it spread awareness? Or is it basically invisible to most people?
    Faith's favorite band is Garbage. We have an episode about chasers, if you want to hear how they steal transwomen's photos to attract other transwomen online.

Quintessence of Dust ,

Great podcast!

Faith & Kath present wonderful insights into Faith’s journey as a trans woman, Katy’s experiences S a cis woman trans ally. The topics are very informative but I really enjoy the living and witty interaction between them. They also have great guests from time to time, that provide experience and insights from other perspectives.

A fantastic exploration of the trans experience!

So much fun to listen.

I love listening to these ladies. They are so fun and have so much energy, even on serious topics and despite the news they manage to be relentlessly upbeat. I also really like that they are not afraid to use language and just assume their audience is inteligent enough to know things like what a venn diagram is. They are my weekly ration of happy Gender Rebelion that isn't wrapped up in political correctness but in speaking directly about and to other people regardless of gender.
