Hey!

Magdalene Visaggio here. I'm the writer and creator of Kim & Kim, Eternity Girl, and a bunch of other stuff. If you're here, odds are you're a fan of my work and/or follow me on twitter. I appreciate you taking the time to read this.

As you are probably horrifyingly aware, I'm trans. I talk about it a lot. It's actually pretty cool a lot of the time, but tbh a bunch of it really sucks? Like, it can get mad expensive, and I mean, I'm pretty over that. I transitioned relatively late, which means there's a lot of expensive-ass surgeries I need to get if I wanna get my transition to a point where my dysphoria has thoroughly fucked off. 

And surgery is pretty goddamn expensive.

The thing is that my insurance, Aetna, is very restrictive about trans care; it will fund precisely two things: hormones and bottom surgery, and even then the hormone coverage sucks. So, first, I am 100% not asking for help with bottom surgery. I can do that with insurance. But everything else?

I mean, FFS is gonna be $16k minimum. Breast augmentation? Another $5 grand at least. Hip augmentation? That's another few grand. Vocal surgery? Six thou down the drain.

As you can see, it gets expensive, and I can't begin to fund all that on my own, so I would really appreciate your help.

Here's my plan:

I am only going to use this money for things I cannot get with insurance. I will cover my insurance copays out of pocket. 

The $20k figure is a guesstimate of a rough ballpark figure of a number that would really help. 

And I'll post a ton of gross surgery photos here for you if you want. 

Anyway! Thanks for your time.
