another word I think i like for myself
December 22, 2012
I think this might actually be my go to word for when i’m in white/anglo settings and am not feeling particularly confrontational (third gender is also good for this, i suppose…)
something about it sounds reasonably right to me and not as ‘blech’ as most white/anglo words.
obviously, as always, bakla is the best and, really, only word i truly like for myself.
i’m mostly writing about this because it makes me wonder why i like some words and don’t like others
(and, i’m not including things i’m reclaiming like third gender or ladyboy)
Like. I don’t think i’d call myself a trans filipina. shit. I don’t really like calling myself trans at all.
but transpinay is something that doesn’t jar or make me cringe
