Yesterday I shaved my head. I’ve been thinking about doing it for a long time but never had the guts. I’ve had various scalp problems in the past 2 years. I’ve suffered from seborrheic dermatitis and hair loss due to my high levels of stress. My hair and scalp skin felt like a burden to me. I would always hide my problems by putting my hair in a bun. I was so afraid of losing my hair that I didn’t brush them anymore because each time I did, my hair would fall out in chunks. Shaving my head made me feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel free. I feel liberated. I feel better. I feel brave. I don’t need to have hair to feel beautiful. I don’t need to have hair to be a woman. I’m the same person I was but now I have a big smile on my face. It’s the best decision I’ve made. After all, shaving my head was on my bucket list. Now I’ve done it and I’m proud.
Sometimes humanity needs a reality check.
Happiness is found in the people you love…

I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
