introduction (selfie ec)
I guess it's finally #introduction time. I'm Sig! I'm a 32-year-old trans guy (he/him) from the Boston area, currently living in North Ostrobothnia, Finland, with my spouse @Jonas, two cats, a boa and a bunch of plants.
Right now I spend most of my time learning Finnish, taking care of my pets, gardening, baking, bicycling, and enjoying nature. I also draw, but that's been kinda on and off lately. I've also been known to play a vidja game but don't tell anyone.
top surgery +++
aesthetically, I'm thrilled with the results. the nipple placement and overall shape of things are pretty much perfect. my pecs look amazing from all angles. I keep finding myself gazing down at them.
my incisions are a little asymmetrical because they follow (what used to be) my natural underboob folds, one being a little lower than the other. I kinda like it tbh? nothing else on my body is symmetrical and it makes it feel more organic and personal.
oh yeah and top surgery +++
I'm 10 days post-op now and I'm not sure why I haven't been posting about it. I figured I'd be yammering excitedly about every detail, but instead I think the healing process has felt pretty personal in a way I didn't expect. I haven't even shown my best friend my results yet.
I think my instinct has been to crawl in my cave, rest, and get to know my new body, and basically it's going great. Even better than I expected in a lot of ways.
selfie ec-ish, medical setting, bandages
you can tell I was high as a bird in this photo because I went ahead and posted it right after @Jonas took it, despite looking all lumpy and my balding being VERY obvious because I hadn't been able to shave my head in a while
it's Pride! hello, I'm a 32-year-old queer (bi/pan/all-gender-attracted/whatever) trans man. I've been out as trans for about 7 years, on testosterone for 6, and out as queer for uhhhh more than half my life I guess!
I'm married to a nonbinary cutie in a relationship we're comfortable describing as gay despite our genders being different - we're certainly perceived as a gay couple and it affects our lives.
also I'm getting top surgery in 6 days, so this is an especially exciting pride for me!!
medical, mammogram, awkward but funny
just got my first and hopefully last ever mammogram, which was awkward but surprisingly not painful even though they panini pressed the shit out of my flapjacks
my finnish continues to improve; I went by myself, checked in, and managed to communicate alright with the technician while she wrangled my chest danglers into a variety of positions
