Important Trans News, Episode 38 https://redd.it/cy9ag2
I'm 16 years old.
my stepmother recently threatened me that some day she will take all my electronics and cut off the access to my bank account for me (father can as a guardian, he has full access to it). admittedly, she has never really done anything out of what she threatened me with before, but it made me feel insecure enough to think about it - how to keep the money safe in case of such a situation? to be honest, I don't know where to hide cash safely at home so that nobody would find it.
I'm starting to think about things in my mind in English. I'm not a native speaker, I always lived and am living in a nation that speaks a Slavic language. it's all only because I hate using gendered words when thinking about myself. I mean, when you speak English, you use a verb, append an "s" or not and that's all. but when you speak my language, you need to use its appropriate variant, which often depends on gender.
just imagine how often you refer to "I" in a past tense in a simple talk.
