Streaming tonight (Wed 07/19/2017), but then I will be on vacation for a while! I am going to start streaming some PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds in just a few minutes. Tonight will be my last opportunity to stream before heading to Seattle to visit my sister for a week long vacation (leaving early Saturday). If you live out that way, who knows I just might bump into you 😉 

This stream is important to me because if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits an average of 8 viewers per hour.. you are going see some serious &#%^! 😉 But seriously, this should be the night that puts me into qualification to be a Twitch affiliate. That means I may eventually start to pull in just a little bit of monetary support from my streaming, which should allow for me to stream even more often and be able to accomplish some of the bigger things I have planned for my stream – so please join me if you can at: http://twitch.tv/maidenariana

 Trans representation matters and there is a growing community of trans gamers on Twitch. As stated earlier, I do plan to do more than gaming on this platform (referring to positive transgender representation).

Take care everyone!

Had a dental cleaning to go to during lunch today. The weather is totally perfect!

Also, don’t judge me for wearing the same dress as from a stream earlier this weekend – the weather was too perfect for it and it of course has been washed 😉

Recently I was in another trans gamer girl’s chat room on Twitch and I was defending her from someone who was spouting the typical alt-right and Southern Baptist fueled Hate Groups (i.e. Alliance Defending Freedom, and the Family Research Council take your pick) lies about trans people. I can’t believe she didn’t ban him, but it was almost a good thing. I countered every “argument” he posted and who knows maybe he will think twice before doing that to someone else. Hopefully the others in the chat will do the same if they see his ilk again.

I have not been openly attacked on my Twitch channel yet, but I know it is only a matter of time. I am not sure if I will just instantly ban the trolls or try to teach them something about transgender people. I guess it depends if I think they are worthy of my time or not. Nothing will ever change if we always silo ourselves.

After my afternoon stream today, I made a quick outfit change then headed out to my parents’ house for a surf and turf dinner. My parents still slip up on the pronouns and use my old name once in a while. They do correct themselves usually though. It is not malicious when they make these mistakes, but it is still hard to hear. I explained it to a friend once that as soon as someone refers to me with the wrong pronoun, I do not hear the next few words they say. Even if I try to go back and think about what they said it is as if my brain just stops hearing their words for a moment. It sucks :-/ 

It was a nice visit today though and on the way home, I got to chase the sun a bit. It turned very red as it hit the horizon. All I could think of while watching it was.. wait would Supergirl’s powers stop working during a ‘red’ sunset? 😉

I want to thank everyone that has come by to support my Twitch stream. You helped make this weekend a fun one for me 🙂 I am very close to qualifying to be a Twitch Affiliate so that is really cool 🙂

I plan to stream again Wednesday night starting about 8:30 central time.

Take care!

-Ari
