ADVENTURES OF A
Hi! I am a PhD student in Physical Oceanography, as well as an avid runner, and a non binary trans masculine person. I started this blog because I struggle to find deep, insightful interrogations of gender from trans people, with the exception of a few superstars (Dean Spade, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Thomas Page McBee, Andrea Long Chu). And while those superstars are great, they are mostly writers who transitioned years or decades ago. It is also worth noting that everyone I listed is white and lives somewhere that is known for being trans friendly. Our trans stories need more diversity.
Maybe the world doesn't want to hear a trans story beyond: I was born in the wrong body, but I had surgery and now I am Fixed. I am writing this blog for every trans person whose story does not fit that arc, and especially for my fellow trans scientists.
