  1. I got my second shot. I have not yet developed superpowers, but I can hug my friends soon, and that's good enough for me.
  2. Kris Statlander is back! That's all I needed.
  3. My mood changes every day so I don't really know if I should rank, but here's who I enjoy most at the moment. - Tsukasa Fujimoto - Syuri - Maki Itoh - Kris Statlander - Rina Yamashita - Risa Sera - Meiko Satomura - Mochi Miyagi - Jungle Kyona - ASUKA (aka Veny) With honorable mentions to Chihiro Hashimoto, Totoro Satsuki, Suzu Suzuki, Trish Adora, Allie Kat, Tsukushi Haruka, Ram Kaichow, Maya Yukihi, Kimber Lee, Hiroyo Matsumoto, and Konami. Anna Jay, Tay Conti, and Britt Baker have all been growing on me as well. Actually, you could probably just put the entir
  4. The reason I chimed in is because I felt I could provide perspective from how a lot of this content resonated with me, regarding WWE's incredibly poor record when it comes to LGBTQ presentation (and especially with trans matters). I no longer watch, because their content has hurt me enough. Does that mean they should get a free pass to continue hurting others like me? Should that hurt continue on because of "historical context"? Can I ask why people feel the need to vehemently defend the "historical context" of trash? Frankly, I don't care what they do with said trash. Cut it ou
  5. The line will get drawn somewhere, obviously. The question is, how much bigotry are you willing to tolerate in what you watch, knowing it might harm others?
  6. Hi! I'm guessing you were referring to this? Because yeah, that made me extremely uncomfortable to go back and watch. There were a lot of moments that Goldust was specifically intended to trigger transphobic reactions from, like when he was stripped down to lingerie at the end of his match with Roddy Piper at WrestleMania XII, or pretty much his entire TAFKA Goldust run. Or when the Headbangers started wearing dresses and cone bras in the ring aside from the skirts they had been wearing after they turned heel. That was solely to trigger transphobic reactions too. Or... h
  7. So I think that tiredness comes from a few factors: 1) I'm in a bit of a trans bubble. I mean, obviously. 2) The conversation rarely, if ever changes, outside of when you hit upon a troll who just wants to argue with you and starts shifting the goalposts about why you're not allowed to be yourself. Because first it's hormone levels, then it's surgical procedures, then it's bone density, then it's chromosomes, then it's "WELL IT'S JUST HOW YOU WERE BORN AND YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT NO MATTER WHAT!" and by that point I wonder if time machine technology has been invented yet so I can get the
  8. I believe I've mentioned this before, but that's pretty much what will happen. Look at the comments section on practically any article about the anti-trans in sports bills being bandied about in 20+ states. (I mean... I don't actively recommend it. It gives me a migraine.) A lot of people have a phenomenally low understanding of what trans people are, and an unwillingness to stray from a fourth-grade understanding of science to try and improve that understanding. And maybe that sounds bitter, but I've also been having these conversations for a decade-plus, and I'm just... really tire
  9. I had downloaded a handful of old magazines on a lark a couple of years ago, and that was one of them. It's the December 2000 issue of Wrestling Superstars. It's also the only one I kept because the indie guide has some genuinely strange stuff in there, such as one promotion that lists themselves as having cards that are half-wrestling and half-shootfights, then proceeding to explain that one of the shootfighters got his tooth chipped on a bowling ball after winning a tournament. Also, a tag team listed as the "4:20 Express". 2000 was a different time.
  10. I'm assuming this is what you're looking for, because it's possibly the worst belt I've ever seen.
  11. I haven't served in a long while, but this never bothered me. My job was to serve you, no matter what you ordered. And really, tables turned quicker without alcohol involved in my experience, so chances are that unless I was working in a system with strict reservations and no walk-ins, I'd get another table in as a result to make up for whatever extra percentage would've come off the wine or cocktails you didn't order. It all balanced out in the end. A server that focuses more on trying to maximize their tip on a single visit by upselling on things like alcohol, instead of trying to give the c
  12. I mean, the better solution whether than knowing your mic is hot is not to be a bigot, but what do I know.
  13. I think the last time we did a headcount of women, we came up with only four or five. I've been around here in some form for two decades, by the way. I've had long stretches of being a lurker, though.
  14. Does that count those who would be perfectly fine if previous versions of themselves that weren't presenting as their actual gender were presumed dead? Because that seems like a different circumstance. ... asking for a friend. (that friend is me.)
  15. I have to admit, I wasn't expecting Nick Gage to bring such a genuine smile to my face, but heck yeah.
  16. Considering Ron Rivera said that the name honors the military as well, maybe Washington Generals would be appropriate since they lose all the time.
  17. People who are elitist about chains don't factor in things like food allergies either. And if you have food allergies AND you travel all the time for work, you don't really have the capability to read Yelp reviews of every local spot that might have conceivably better food. Also, I wish the folks that got the snobbier elements of Food Network had also paid attention to the earlier years of the channel when Rachael Ray was out there cooking most of her meals using canned goods. Like... back before I was working from home (even pre-pandemic), I'd work my normal eight hours, then go work out
  18. I don't make pancakes myself, because chances are if I'm eating pancakes, it's either far too early (like 6am) or it's far too late (like 2am), and I should probably be asleep and not cooking. That's practically the only time I eat pancakes. Either I have to be somewhere and I need to eat something before I go, or I'm coming back from somewhere and I need to eat before I go to bed. The exception is the Galaxy Diner here in Richmond, because I am silly enough to eat a pancake with an Oreo in the center once a year.
  19. Prior to my transition, I did occasional ring announcing and commentary. At one show, a promoter must have been expecting to pay everyone based off the house because when it came time to pay everyone, there wasn't enough money to go around for everyone. And as the ring announcer, naturally, I was the first one to end up with no pay. The biggest name on the show was Adam Pearce. He pulls me aside and asks me if I was getting paid. I said no. He then asked me I was going to have enough to get home and get something to eat on the way back. I said yeah. He said "are you sure?", and offers me
  20. You're right about J-Sinn's length of time on Virginia indies. He and Lance Lude were the Set for something like three years in the late-2000s. Before then, he was part of a tag team called the Street Sweepers with Greg Vercetti.
  21. Secret Little Haven is in the bundle too, which is a game I've mentioned on here before. The best way I can describe it is a desktop simulator game set in 1999, and it has a significant trans-heavy theme. I strongly recommend it if you want to see what it was like to be a trans woman discovering who she was in 1999. (It also made me cry. Like a lot. For obvious reasons.)
  22. Hand to hand swings, two-handed swings, various squats, bent over rows, windmills, that sort of stuff. Swings take some getting used to. I do a lot of Jen Sinkler exercise programs, and she has a lot of good instruction videos. Here's her video on kettlebell swings that might help out: https://www.liftweightsfaster.com/lwf-member/exercise-video-library/kettlebell-swing/
  23. Note to self: if anything goes down, go to Broad with a brick to lend a hand.
  24. My Apple TV HBO Now app also turned into HBO Max too, but it didn't retain my list so I had to rebuild it. Oh well, not much of a gripe if that's the worst that could happen. The amount of content available at launch, like @Raziel said, is really impressive. I was already happy to spend the $15 for HBO Now, but the added content makes it even better.
