Colton Issac Seidman is a woman (previously Laura Ellyn Seidman, legally changed to the present name in 2014 -- Thanks @zedkissed60 for the info.) who identifies as trans man/non-binary (preferred pronoun: they/them). She was first discovered as a fling of Richard "Terra" "Buffalo Bill" Jones:
V.s. how she looks now:
These are some real bitch tits.
She doesn't wear binders (at least not in summer), citing severe back pain, but if you stare at her tits, you're "fetishizing" her!
Some early history (courtesy of @Short)
In mid-late 2013, before she transitioned, Laura had a pregnancy and an abortion (she claimed she didn't discover it until she was 6 months pregnant, but the ultrasound picture doesn't look like it). Originally she planned to have her roommate adopt the baby but then she discovered the roommate to be "super toxic".
Weeks after her abortion, she began identifying as male and started on Androgel.
Admittedly, trans men are a rarity among the Rat Kings, but Colt shares with her fellow Rats all the charactistic traits. She is unemployed, on tard bucks, and is resentful of other people's success:
She claims to have borderline personality disorder (who doesn't?), is chronically suicidal and checks in and out of the Illinois Masonic Medical Center (a trans-friendly place according to her) like a hostel.
Colt's Great Housing Adventure
Colt is perpetually in search for a place to live. She contacted the YMCA in Chicago and was promptly allocated a nice apartment:
But she balked at the idea of having to shower with the boys, so back on the street she went.
June 2018: California Dreaming
At long last, in late June 2018, Laura found a place. But of course fate dealt a rough hand on her. Just before that, Laura found money within her extremely tight budget to visit San Francisco, by plane, for her birthday. That vacation, lasting a mere 48 hours, changed her perspective. When she was back in Chicago, she found everything insufferable: people spat on her for no reason; the LGBT services have been transphobic, the works. If only she could live in that LGBT wonderland called San Francisco! Ever since, hardly a week goes by without her pining for California.
July 2018. A (cis?) lesbian couple in Fair Oaks, California promised to take her in. Laura booked the plane immediately -- only to chicken out on the very day before departure claiming that she had, out of the blue, seen "too many red flags", dragging her hosts' reputation through the mud. Anyone who plans to offer "Colt Seidman" help should keep this in mind.
After California, her next Shangri-La is Portland, Oregon, having been drawn to an on-line therapist who seems agreeable to her (for the moment at least). As of October 2018 she says she had the housing matter sorted out (very unlikely as subsidized housing in Portland have waiting lists measuring in years) and will be moving there "in a few months". Let's see how this would pan out.
Incidentally Laura's desire to move to another state is not new. As recently as November 2017 she had wished to move to and stay in Texas.
The Misadventure of a Borderline Case
(Special thanks to @Venus and @Crunchy Leaf for Laura's reviews of health services)
Laura claims to have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). True, self-diagnosis is de rigueur among Rat Kings and usually doesn't mean anything. But, judging from Laura's behavior, her case is likely genuine. She demands affection at odd moments, threatens suicide every few days, and has been taking advantage of youth psychological services. Now 25 and having aged out of youth services, she is in a difficult position because she sure isn't going to pay (or exchange volunteer service) for what she feels entitled for fee.
You'd think Laura must be very thankful for the free psychological services she received. You are only half right. A characteristic symptom of BPD is "splitting" -- an absolute, black-and-white, angel-and-demon way of seeing the world. Everything is either the best ever is, or is the work of Satan, and the opinions can flip at the drop of a hat. Laura's current concept of San Francisco is typical of the "angel" phase of thinking. Regarding health services, the same thinking pattern applies, with the "demons" outnumbering "angels". The only health service that (so far) had earned unadulterated praise is Illonis Masonic (which allowed her to check in freely during her frequent suicidal crises). The demons are too many to count, including
- Trilogy Behavioral Health Care, which through a "misunderstand" sent her to...
- St. Mary's Hospital of Chicago, a Catholic establishment that traumatized her so much that she ended up homeless (don't ask). Even her friends ended up "super traumatized".
Somewhat ambivalent but definitely on the Dark Side are Howard Brown and Halstead. One wonders why she missed free therapy sessions at Halstead if she finds them "extremely toxic and transphobic". In August 2018, Laura wished to visit Halstead one last time "to say goodbye". She was rebuffed by the staff who noted that she has aged out of their service. She vented her spleen on everyone who would listen, and ended up writing a long tract counting the way Halstead had "mistreated" her.
Laura in 2019: Mastectomy and Non-Binary Identity.
2019 was spent moving from one State to another. She seems unable to settle in one place for longer than 3 months, and in one instance she bailed out (or was kicked out) in 6 days. Equally amazing is her ability to have new homes lined up for her; it looks as if charitable organizations never compare notes. As of September she was back in Chicago, has been accepted by a housing assistance program for Jewish youths, and turned down said program in favor of getting $1000 rent money a month from some LGBT group.
In early July, she underwent double mastectomy as part of her gender transformation. But, typical of a borderline case and especially typical of Laura, the euphoria died soon. In late September she announced she was no longer a trans man, but a "non-binary" who prefer they/them pronouns. Her case should be a clarion call of those who advocate surgical gender transformations of the mentally ill. Many of these people, like Laura, has no concept of self whatsoever. They cannot talk meaningfully of "self-identity" and whatever they claim must not be taken at face value. Their "gender-identities" are unstable and easily reversible, but the result of surgery lasts for ever.
It surprises nobody that Laura had no success with school, having dropped out of high school without getting a GED. But it is totally not her fault you see: it is the education system's fault for not catering to "neurodivergent folx". She claims she couldn't thrive under traditional classes, perferring one-to-one tuition or on-line classes, but when asked why didn't she take on-line classes, she said they were more trouble than they were worth.
Laura fancies herself as an LGBT advocate; the only jobs she ever had were menial labors at the likes of Dollar Tree Stores and Hallmark Cards (archived as screenshot as both Wayback and archive.li fuck up), each job lasted mere months. (which makes her Twitter handle, selfmadecolt, ironic). Between 2017-18, she has short stints as a Postmate deliveryman and then as an Amazon packager. In mid-2018, she signs up on Rover to be a pet sitter. She liberally posts pictures and descriptions of the homes that hire her on social media. This is prohibited by Rover and can easily get her in trouble.
Some earlier employment info courtesy of @zedkissed60 (archive). The pattern of employment was even worse when she was younger -- multiple odd jobs each lasting no more than two months.
As she was pushing 25, she tried to enlist the help of Job Corps (25 is the upper age limit for applicants):
Even though she knows a cafe owner nearby who is hiring, working there is apparently beneath her -- she'd rather be someone's "reference":
Colt is addicted to mobile phone (c.f. Richard Jones, who posted on Twitter during his dad's funeral) and is very defensive of her phone habits:
So Colt claims her texting/browsing habits is literally essential to her survival. You see this type of rationalization very often among Rat Kings: they don't do things because they want to; it is always some mysterious outside force. Phil (ADF) claims he must keep getting tattoos to stave off suicidal thoughts; Zinnia Jones claims he has "medical reasons" to wear women clothes.
Like most Rats, Colt has been "traumatized" by religion, having been involuntarily incarcerated in a "transphobic" Catholic hospital -- a well-rehearsed story of these type of people.
Like a good SJW, she wields SJW lingo like a pro in her quest for ass pats:
She has a sweetheart (at least last August), apparently another FtM and suffers from addiction of some kind so may well be another lolcow.
Oh, if you don't realize already, she is a e-begger with accounts from at least 2 e-begging sites. (archive: 1,2.)
