welcome to mandatainstalling.tumblr.com! as some of your know, i’ve started testosterone hormone therapy this week. i wont go into all the details now (although i may later). the reason i’m starting a blog for this occasion is as follows - at least once a week i will be taking a new portrait of myself, and uploading it here (i like externalizing goals, it keeps me honest). my partner and i think its hysterically funny to consider each shot as 1% man (this works out to the 2 year mark being 100%, which is not the worst guess every made about the effects of testosterone). Now, just to be clear, I in no have intentions of identifying as 100% man (cause, wwwwhyy???), but for the purpose of a sometimes comical exploration through the world of self creation and body modification, this suits me just fine. also, i’m a big geek and thinking about injections as data installation is fun!
