my old best friends neighbor illegally owned pet ostriches once and theyd always escape and one day me and my friend were walking down her street and saw a pair of ostriches walking behind us in the distance and we started walking faster and they started CHASING us and followed us to her doorstep like we were literally shutting the door right in their faces and then we ran upstairs with our hearts beating out of our chests and i glance out the window AND THEY WERE ON THE ROOF SO DONT FUCKING REBLOG PHOTOS OF OSTRICHES THEYRE SCARY AS HELL
theres this place near the grocery store and i thought it was like a tanning salon bc theres a huge picture of a tan blonde in a bikini on their door with a really tiny dog pulling her bottoms off and then i read the sign and it was actually a dog grooming place and i was confused on why the blonde in a bikini was even relevant OR necessary to display since it has literally nothing to do with dog washing lmao
hi everyone!! i work in a thrift shop and last month we got something in i never expected to see: an amoena breast form and bra. i scoured ebay to find a nearly-matching mate and make a pair so that they could make a difference in someone’s life!!
amoena make medical-grade silicone prosthetics that are very durable (and very expensive!). they’re accessible to breast cancer survivors and cis women who have had masectomies thanks to insurance, but often impossible to afford for transgender women. one lucky reblogger will get them absolutely free of charge! these are perfect for daily wear, stay put easily (especially in the included bra) and would be great for presenting as a woman full-time, even in physically demanding settings like retail or trade work.
i see a ton of giveaways for ftm-related things like binders and i figured i’d give this a try for the other lovely trans ppl of tumblr! make sure to read below for details before reblogging, and feel free to message me with questions related to the giveaway (i won’t publish unless you give me permission).
***i want these to go to a trans woman***. i’m not going to police if you’re genderqueer/fluid/agender/etc and switch between ‘she/woman’ and gender neutral language for this reason throughout this post. you should want to have breasts in your daily life, though, find them useful and be in need of them if you’re reblogging this. these are very well-made, expensive breast forms and it’s not fair if some people who need breasts and would really be helped by them physically and emotionally are reblogging this while others are just reblogging it just to get some padding for a busty cosplay.
i will send these amoena breast forms and bra to a winner who will be randomly selected through randompicker on may 21, 2014.
TO WIN, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS REBLOG.likes don’t count. you don’t have to be following me/liking other posts of mine/etc etc. if you don’t need these for yourself and are just reblogging to promote this post/show it to your friends who might be interested tag it as #signal boost and you’ll be removed from the giveaway winning pool.
i will provide shipping at my own expense, regardless of if you live in the US like i do or across the world from me. all you have to do is be comfortable giving me an address to ship these to. i can package them as discreetly as needed.
IMPORTANT SIZING DETAILS:
these are an a/b. they stick out 1-3 inches in most spots when worn. one is slightly smaller than the other but their thickness in the main part of each breast is the same, as pictures of me modeling them for y’all will show. these will have the most noticeable effect on you if you have a smaller frame, but if you’re chubby i’m sure they could also work to enhance your natural chest. they look weird in-box and are obviously pale and white looking, but have an extremely lifelike appearance + feel when worn in a bra. they aren’t really supposed to ‘show’ outside of a bra or shirt.
i didn’t seek these out to buy for a giveaway, again, i happened upon 2/3 of this giveaway package at my work, so sadly the included bra only goes up to a 34” band.
these will also ‘work’ if placed into any store-bought bra, though, they’re not really dependent on the one i’m giving them away with (even though it was made to go along with breast forms and is thus pretty dang convenient if it happens to fit you).
Now for the fun part!
Effect when worn:
(+two slightly nsfw views of them worn shirtless 12)
i was iffy about going through with giving these away because their size really limits who they can benefit, but at the same time, these were made for someone and if that someone is you, hopefully they’ll find their way to you and make your life a bit easier!
if this giveaway goes well i’m hoping to make a more thoughtfully planned out one in the future. i’d like to give away a realistic variety of colors/cup sizes/bra sizes and choose companies geared towards trans women so that they can be more universally useful than breast forms that, well, just happened into my life at random. i want to do this way more than just once, and ideally i’ll be able to find the means+resources once i’m out of college to do this sort of giveaway 1-3 times a year. if you wanna check upon that in the future, i’ll be sure to put any giveaway posts under my #my giveaways tag, and any breast form (etc) giveaways under a #trans giveaway tag as well.
good luck to everyone who reblogs this, and again, if you’re not reblogging these to win please tag as #signal boost! thank you!!
hey! i was (and still am) having the exact same period problems as you. i was eventually diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (of course, only after several burst and everyone thought i had appendicitis, but besides that), and just so you know, plenty of teenage girls have the same thing. you basically juts end up going on birth control and metformin--it's no big deal at all. if you want to talk about it i'll come off anon, i know it was a huge pain for me
yeah ive already considered that i might have that and please do come off anon so i can ask u some things about it if u dont mind!!!
To the girls with the period questions: while it's embarrassing to talk to your doctor, those few moments of embarrassment are totally worth it. Your reproductive health isn't something to mess with because even at young ages like 16+ your body could be trying to tell you things! So don't be afraid to speak up! Doctors are your friends! Also if you can't talk bc of parents planned parenthood can even address things for you that your regular physician could! :)
I'm having the same problem with my period! I'm kinda freaked out too, but I'm too nervous to see a doctor. What did yours say?
theyve been running a lot of blood tests and they found some unrelated issues that didnt cause me to miss my period but they want me to come back in to test again for those and then they made me go to a gynecologist and theyre running blood tests and the results should be back in less than a week
I'm so jealous of you. My period comes every 28 days and my cramps are always bad. They make me puke and I can't sleep because of them.
my period usually is the same way as yours and has been consistently like that for like over 6 years so im actually pretty worried lol please dont be jealous its not fun to be worried about your health
It's not abnormal for me to go four months without getting my period. Like, that really worries me?? But I can't afford/am not comfortable going to a doctor? Like... Do I need to worry about that? Like, less periods is great, but I want kids someday and ??????????
well honestly some womens cycles are just more spread out than others and it doesnt mean that theres anything wrong with you, it just means you have longer cycles. i do not think that it affects fertility. but im not a gynecologist so i dont really have an expert opinion, i just know a lot of women that have had constant irregular periods and were still able to have kids. but if youre still worried later down the line and are able to go to a gynecologist id recommend that you did
I'm not 100% if it was you who posted this, but I think you said you were on tretitnion (retin a) and HOLY SHIT I've been on the .01% gel version for like a month and a half and my skin wasnt even that bad and it literally is doing nothing but making me flakey and I want to cry. Which one are you on and how long have you been on it? IM SOBBING RN TBH
i think u are supposed to be flakey for a lil bit bc its peeling layers of ur skin!!! it was reaLLY bad for me the first week but my skin adapted pretty fast, maybe you need to go to a lower concentration of it though if your skin hasnt adapted by now?? i would consult your dermatologist or whoever prescribed it to you. i think im on like 0.025%
Simone how did the situation end, with the guy threatening to post your nudes if you don't mind me asking?
i just unfollowed him like 5 minutes ago bc i just remembered that were still in a mutual
i just concluded that i dont care if he gets mad and does it bc a. thats child porn that he would be distributing lol and b. i would know exactly who did it and i would tell people that he did it and he has like over 100k followers im pretty sure so i know that would probably not look good on him
that felt good posting about all of that shit and theres a lot more i could post about but i dont feel the need. its just that ive had my blog since i was 15 and i was a very different person back then, i also didnt like myself and i tolerated a lot of shitty behavior bc i wanted to be accepted. i dont feel the need to have everybody love me or pretend to love me anymore. i could really care less, and that feels so good
and also fuck you to the guy who found naked photos of me from when i was 15 and threatened to leak them if i wasnt his friend. thats not true fucking friendship thats blackmail and to do that to somebody that has told you about her personal anxiety and depression is even more fucked up
ive just come to the conclusion that i could care less about what anybody on this website thinks of me anymore or if im annoying and im not going to apologize for being a human being or having feelings anymore. i dont need to apologize to people who have treated me like shit for no reason other than they felt like it. fuck everybody that allowed themselves to walk all over me just bc i wouldnt stand up for myself, fuck anybody that justified treating me poorly bc they didnt care about what strangers on the internet thought of them and therefore projected their feelings onto me bc clearly everybody thinks and feels the same way lol… im just so angry and i know my anger set in really late but im furious
also a lot of people on here used to give me shit about how i looked and ganged up on me and made fun of me and id always get visibly upset and have a meltdown on my blog and later forgive them or try to insult them back bc i had super low self esteem and sometimes i just wish i hadnt have reacted like that, that i wouldve called them out on their clear insecurities that they had to nitpick how i looked and how i was
i even remember this dude on here once (probably accidentally) added me to this creepy skype chat (these bloggers all had a lot of followers and i thought some of them were my friends so it was especially horrifying) where they had changed their names on skype to other bloggers urls on tumblr that werent there to make fun of them and somebody changed their skype name to “simone theyellowbrickroad” and were making comments about eating a whole tub of ice cream and everybody was having a good time making fun of me
ive still neVER confronted any of those people that were in that skype chat about it bc it was really embarrassing for me i felt ashamed of my weight at that point and i honestly wanted to die all the time i was super depressed and suicidal and a lot of them would take advantage of that and i think im finally out of mutuals with all of those people bc they never liked me and they were never my friends
and then this other guy made a video reading a story that him and his friends wrote that had a lot of fat jokes about me in it and basically it was about me eating another blogger and just shit like that was the kind of shit i always felt like was MY fault and i just wanted to forgive all of them right away so we never had to talk about it bc it was my fault for being fat and my fault for being ugly and that was just a really dark mind frame for me
im really glad i dont think that way anymore but if you read this and you identified yourself as one of the people ive mentioned or can think of a time you targeted me for how i look that i didnt mention (bc trust me theres plenty of stories that i didnt) then i want you to think about how shitty you are. and fuck you, seriously
yeah cooking is like hugely important. things seem less gross when you make them yourself. or more gross if they’re actually bad. it just takes a little bit of planning, but once you do get the hang of it, you benefit from it forever. and it gets fun
if u ever have any good healthy recipes let me know ok !!!
i feel you, i’m at the stage where healthy food isn’t horrible anymore but it’s still hard to want to eat it when bad food is available. it just takes patience with yourself. and feeling guilty won’t help, so just do your best. :)
i also need to make more of an effort to cook. thats the biggest problem, ive never been that into cooking and whenever i did cook it was really unhealthy shit. i dont know how to make healthy stuff and make it taste good lol its always so bland but maybe ill figure out ways to make it more tasteful and also acquire a taste for healthier things again
like i wish healthy food tasted as good as unhealthy food did.. last year i was eating healthy for like a minute and got past that horrible stage where everything is awful and i started enjoying healthy food but that was so long ago and now im off track and now its horrible bc im literally having health problems bc of my poor eating habits
im havin some health problems so i cant eat junk food like ever ever ever again but im a serious food addict like not even saying it as a joke i have no self control so this is such a struggle for me its embarrassing
