I didn’t get the child hood I wanted, instead I got stuck with two miserable parents. Parents who said that they want to see society change but had no clue how to be pro active in seeing change. I wanted a mom to teach me how to do make up. I wanted a dad to walk me down the Isle. I wanted a mom that was willing to allow me to express myself. I wanted a dad that was sober long enough to tell me he loved me and genuinely mean it.

Your kids deserve to be treated like humans and that means letting them tap into autonomy with out holding them back or down. You aren’t showing love sending them to time out or even spanking instead you are teaching neglect and abuse. Spanking gives the idea it’s OK to hit anyone anytime if they do something wrong. That is fucking awful.

One thing I have been trying so hard to articulate lately has been if God is so big and told us to love the least of these why the hell are the Christians the ones expressing the most bigotry and hate? It makes no sense what so ever unless… No one listens in church which that is sure what the fuck it seems like. We are all trying to go through life the best we know how too and not one of us consented to being born. Boomer parents stop acting like we owe you everything and stop being so entitled. The millennials are so far from entitled and the boomers are too blind to the massive fuck up to see their own entitlement. Most boomers anyway.

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
