Recommendation: I enjoy the writings of Daniel M Lavery (previously Daniel Mallory Ortberg of The Toast). He writes fun but thought-provoking things about his white, queer, American, academic/writerly transmasculine experience.

He has a memoir out called "Something That May Shock and Discredit You", which I haven't read yet, as well as a blog. The blog has some "paid subscribers only" posts, but many posts are free. Sometime when I'm less socially anxious I may take Lavery up on his offer to share individual paid posts for free with people in financial hardship.

One subject Lavery likes to cover on his blog is transmasculine readings of literature and pop culture.

This post, "Cis Men (As Far As We, Like, *Know*) With Inexplicably Transmasculine Energy", is an example. I love queercoded readings in general, including transfem discussions of "we all know Samus is trans, right?" But "transmasc egg" subjectivity isn't discussed as much.
