so bc my mom was sick a couple nights ago i drove to el paso to make her fideo and ginger tea and take care of her

and the next morning after i took my littlest sister to school i was just hanging out in bed with my mom talking. she asked me what my housemate was studying and i told her they are examining trans* erotica esp. in regards to how we internalize oppression in desire. and she was like oh, is ______ trans? and i said ya, and also me too. we got real real. i talked to her about my gender shit and about how im kind of glad i never had access to/was too broke to start T when i was a teenager bc i was drawn to it for fucked up reasons 

AND THEN SHE TOLD ME ABOUT HER GENDER SHIT

about how when she first got her period she was hella depressed and heartbroken because she didn’t want to be a woman and wanted to just keep running around with her brothers and how she really struggled with it

and omg that’s never how i imagined coming out to my mom or how she’d recieve it but pretty much im so blessed huh? ty virgencita 5eva
