Some β€˜Personal’ Developments

29 January 2021 at 03:02
Hi Everyone, So I have some β€˜personal’ news I would like to share… I am thinking of dropping the wigs (sorry to disappoint you all, those hairstyles weren’t my β€˜natural’ hair… SHOCK! HORROR). So I am growing my hair. This is still very much a β€˜work in progress’ and I need to overcome something of […]

How to Tackle Transphobic β€˜Humour’?

29 January 2021 at 02:29
So someone who I generally like and respect retweeted a β€˜funny’ meme the other day that β€˜triggered’ me. It was something that might have been β€˜funny’ to someone not faced with occasional societal hostility based purely on who they are, but to those of us who experience that random, unpredictable, unwarranted and often unexpected hostility […]

Twitter can expose our true selves to our selves. We should listen when people speak to us.

Transgender Women and Sport

2 September 2020 at 03:52
So, this issue is quite a hot potato… Anyways a fellow blogger (Transacola) recently wrote about this very issue. I really enjoyed their well researched and well written post and I thought some of my readers would too, so here it is, if you wish to read it: Should Trans Woman Athletes be Allowed to […]

Transgender Women and Rugby

27 August 2020 at 11:10
The day started petty much like any other, then I saw a seemingly random Tweet from a person I follow saying that he would not discuss the subject of trans women playing rugby with anyone who had not read a thread that he then referenced. Now I have virtually no interest in rugby and certainly […]

Lockdown is hard. In the absence of acceptance it is what #transgender people live every day. #transrightsarehumanrights

Diary of a Locked-Down T-Girl 8: Thoughts on Penises

12 June 2020 at 10:28
Yeah yeah, I know… I said I would be writing more now that we are in lockdown and the next thing you know, it has been six weeks since my last post. Sorry, life got interesting. We have moved from level five, to level four and now to level three in South Africa. This has […]

Diary of a Locked-Down T-Girl 7: (More) Thoughts on Toilets

27 April 2020 at 07:34
Yes, I know this topic? Again? Really? But you see it is relevant. It keeps on coming back and people really do care about toilets. They matter. Here is what I mean and why. The use of β€˜women only’ facilities by transgender people, and trans women in particular is an β€˜issue’ for many in society. […]

Diary of a Locked-Down T-Girl 6

I have been censored! Dramatic isn’t it. I am not sure when exactly, but sometime between mid-December 2019 and 17 January 2020 Facebook deemed Daniella’s Ramblings far too seditious for the good people of Facebook to read. I received no notification. I received no complaint and I received no warning. Facebook unilaterally blocked http://www.daniellaargento.com from […]

Diary of a Locked-Down T-Girl 5

21 April 2020 at 05:34
Ho-hum… We remain locked-down… So not much news to report I am afraid, no adventures, no brushes with excitement, nothing. But life does continue. For now the infections as a percentage of tests remains fairly constant, so whilst the number of cases of Covid-19 continues to grow, it is not exactly β€˜exploding’, yet. I think […]

Well, well, well… The lockdown continues. Things at work are starting to slow down. I want to get a few proposals out and we still have some admin to do but most of the really big stuff seems to be behind us so now we are kind of in a holding pattern. This has meant […]

Well, here we are… Week two of the lockdown has come and gone. The good news is that the lockdown seems to be working. South Africa is, for now, seeing a manageable number of cases, relatively few deaths, the vast majority of which have significant co-morbidity factors and a declining number of infections as a […]

Well, it has been a week. That means we are one third of the way into this lockdown. Assuming that there is no extension… So far so good. β€˜How have you been coping?’ I hear you ask. Surprisingly well, is the answer. I have been incredibly busy at work. The first day (last Friday was […]

Diary of a Locked-down T-Girl 1

29 March 2020 at 11:44
Well, a lot has happened since I last posted. In January only a select few if us had heard of the dreaded Coronavirus Covid-19 and those of us who had heard the stories coming out of Wuhan had little idea of the storm that would soon engulf us. It seemed a distant problem that would […]

A Response to Stephen Woodford and Carl Benjamin’s Discussion of β€˜Transwoman’ vs β€˜Woman’

17 January 2020 at 05:18
Content Warnings: transhpobia, sexism, general ignorance. Β  Β  I follow a number of YouTube channels for a variety of reasons. One channel I follow is Stephen Woodford’s β€˜Rationality Rulesβ€˜ channel. I don’t often agree with his politics, but I can seldom fault his reasoning. I find his content to usually be well researched, well argued […]
