The absurdity of life as a trans person 

Today I had to write a warrant for Mr. Deadname again. This person, who basically only exists as an ID card I happen to carry around with me, was thus empowered to pick up a mailing to Juni, who very much exists, but does not have an ID card, because when you are a german administration issuing said card, you can never be sure, right? You can not trust anyone! People make up all sorts of things, even their own existence!

@FirstProgenitor I believe in you’re ability to convince people of that!

After getting to know each other a bit better I tried to approach my new friend 💕

I have a friend who grades/reviews at the same transcription site I do and we've both noticed a pretty gross form of racism. Whenever a speaker in an audio file is either clearly a PoC from a video, or sounds like a PoC, very often the transcriptionist will alter the person's dialogue. They might be speaking perfectly clearly, but the TCer will 'start droppin' letters an' addin' their own interpretation of the speech, ya know' and 'that's somethin' I do' and not 'that's something I'd do'.

@Juju @stelepami @welshpixie coming from a country that can’t pronounce the word aluminium, this doesn’t surprise me.
