hi, my name is anthromorph and I am a transfeminine performance artist, I am making this gofund in hopes to alleviate my dysphoria. It is really sad that trans people need to expose so much of their pain to survive.
Feeling like a spectacle is very intrusive, but I really need to molt as soon as possible. I’ve been struggling with s*icidal thoughts for a long time, which I mask with heavy dissociation. Being dissociative has shielded me from facing the pain but it has poisoned my social/professional/family life. You cannot exist normally when you are this empty, everything crumbles. I feel very alone and my mind can not afford to live like this anymore.
Trans/Queer people are put at a big financial disadvantage. Heternormative society treats you horribly when you are visibly queer yet no material support is given to someone trying to re-align with society's perceptions of a gender. The money raised here will be covering surgeries (FFS) that erase bones of the face that grow on testosterone based puberty, and act as "gender signifiers" due to cultural conditioning, simulating an estrogen-based puberty face. Transitioning is expensive and for some is the only way to stay alive.
In a more educated/supportive world, I would have been able to select if I wanted estrogen or testosterone-based puberty before puberty started. Having the choice would have meant I could prevent years of mental illness and having to spend all this money now to hide unwanted puberty effects. In this society, it is so important for people (cis people especially) to support trans funds and give people the material resources they need to faction. Trans people have incredible insights on the world and we deserve the feel self-realized and empowered.
Transitioning was the only thing that has bridged my gap with reality. Please help me access this asap. I hope putting this out would help me materialize it sooner, and finally finish off a huge cycle of dissociation and pain in my life.
The resilience and strength trans people need to show daily just to exist, u could never imagine. I am always so inspired by my siblings and feel so proud and beautiful to be queer. So much gratitude for any suppprt.
