Hi. I’m Amber. This is my blog to write about my own take on various issues based around gender, sexuality, identity, and feminism.
I’m in my twenties, and I’m a trans woman. I’m basically bisexual but it can vary depending on situation. I’m white, which is one area I do have massive privilege in. I have PTSD and anxiety from experiences I have been through, many related to being a young trans woman, but I try to carry on. I consider myself an intersectional feminist. And that’s all I’m going to say about myself for now.
I want to use this space to say things that might differ slightly from the mainstream trans voices out there. Well, we’re no hive mind, and we do not all speak for one another. I certainly know ‘my own side’ screw up on occasions, but I am often afraid to call them out on it. Well, whatever, I will stand by what I say here (unless I publish a retraction).
I don’t pretend to be anything other than subjective, but I try to consider other opinions. I’ve never been a fan of big online debates that end up getting very personal and very nasty.
I expect some people reading this will very quickly be able to work out who I am. It’s not a secret, but I’m not going to mention it here. Makes things easier that way.
Feel free to comment, but I reserve the right to moderate where I see fit.
See you around!
