This blog will no longer be active.

Nor you will be able to find me on Tumblr. You are all encouraged to contact me via e-mail (gomezdelasorna@gmail.com) or Facebook (among my sidebar links). Whether we’ve ever interacted or not, don’t hesitate to reach me out in the unlikely event of missing me or my blog.

No dramas, no need to provide significant reasons. I’ve been growing out of Tumblr for a long time, but I’m extremely thankful for all it’s brought me ever since I became part of it. Every single one of you has somehow made me a better, happier and more self-confident man. But also a man who knows when it’s time to move on. And the time is now.

So long,

Darío.

[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can mobilize an entire society in violent hate against me.

ah that’s so cool :) And I really admire that you’re trying to change it with the university- I’m apprehensive to do that even if there’s laws that’d help me here in California, i just get all nervous abt it..

Well, here it’s kinda AGAINST the law to do it, at least officially. But still they usually change as many documents as possible so that our lives are not a living hell. However, I’m the first case in my 5 centuries old, tiny university and they pretty much don’t have any idea of what to do and are also being REALLY FUCKING SLOW about it. So I’m hopeful it will turn out alright but not until midterm or next semester, which is extremely inconvenient because I’m starting T probably before that happens.

And please, don’t admire me, it took me MANY years to make any actual decision regarding my identity, and also to speak it out… it takes time, or at least it took time with me. And you should do it only once you feel it is the right time, in my opinion. Wait till it becomes easier or you need it to move on with your life, there’s no rush at all :)

The Associated Press Style Guide states that when referring to a transgender person, to “Use the pronoun preferred by the individuals.” GLAAD’s full Media Reference Guide on reporting on transgender people may be found here.

The following are commonly accepted guidelines for covering a transgender person:

  • Always use a transgender person’s preferred name.
  • Whenever possible, ask transgender people which pronoun they would like used.  
  • Do not put quotation marks around either a transgender person’s preferred name or the pronoun that reflects that person’s gender identity.
  • Avoid pronoun confusion when examining the stories and backgrounds of transgender people prior to their transition. In Private Manning’s case, she may simply be referred to as Private Manning.

It SUCKS, yeah. But hey, I’ve got my best friend writing my actual name down in our homework whenever I’m not brave or assertive enough to do so. That, among many other gestures, makes it -everything, to be honest- way, way easier.
