Ghost Guise

Hey, Ariscestocrats! I'm back with another odd chronicle from the roller coaster that is my dating life as an out trans woman. I've been getting some interesting questions lately about "ghosts". Don't know what a "ghost" is? Sure you do, silly! 
To put it plainly, a "ghost" is that piece of shit human waste bin that you had a great time with, felt a real connection with, and looked forward to seeing again only to find that they've completely vanished! Think "piece of shit waste bin" is an unfair label for these frosted-flake Houdini's? That just shows it probably hasn't happened to you yet or you most likely are one, so check yourself. Moving on...

Sex Dreams – And What?

Salutations Ariscestocrats! It's been quite a while since I've over-shared hasn't it? Well let's jump right into the details then, shall we? Today's subject is as the title reads; Sex Dreams. Why do we have them? What do they mean? What triggers us to have them? I'm no dream expert, but my sex dreams definitely follow a formula.
For one, it's always someone I know pretty well, never a blank face or a stranger. I've talked to quite a few people about their night vision's sexual encounters and found that many couldn't remember who the other person, or people in some cases, even were. Do our sex dreams directly relate to how we view ourselves or sexual acts independently? It seems so from the individual stories I've heard so far. What are your sex dreams like? Do you have reoccurring subjects?

Being trans, sadly I know that suicide is nothing new in our community.

Out of the hundreds of LGBT deaths each year, transgender teens are consistently the highest in number. These deaths always spark talks of “suicide prevention” or “depression,” but they always miss the mark, they always miss the actual problem.

Leelah Alcorn, 17, aptly called out the root cause in her suicide note — which published hours after she walked in front of a tractor-trailer on Interstate 71 in Ohio and was killed — targeting society and the horrible way people treat each other every day. She brought up a conversation that should have come up long, long ago.

People need to stop telling other people how to live their lives, how to feel, who to be, so I’m penning an open letter to Leelah’s parents, to every parent.

How To Be A Serial Dater: An Ongoing Series

Hello Ariscestocrats! I'm feeling generous right now, I'm ready to reveal some of my trade secrets in getting a date! I know what you're thinking, "I don't need any help, I'm just in a rut." Well, news flash boo, "rut"s don't last for two years, there's an app for that! Let's begin, shall we?
First, do NOT let your ego or your inner fears get in the way of you having a good time! I myself used to think, "Meeting people online is dangerous!," or "I'm pretty enough to where I shouldn't have to do that." Wrong, bitch! The World Wide Web is the gateway into circles beyond what you could ever imagine, your comfort zone is the enemy! Tinder's tied me to investment bankers at The Ace Hotel, OkCupid couples me with music producers in Los Feliz, and Instagram aired in my first Saudi Prince! Are you above dating up? Didn't think so. Moving on!
