Permission to go shopping

Her suggestion was to keep putting out small changes – to start wearing more of my colourful clothes, and deliberately investing in one or two pastel feminine colours and start co-ordinating. Not necessarily out and female tee’s, but move away from the dark green and blues that make up 99% of my male wardrobe.


 

It was a good therapy session for Dee.  It involved clothes!  How can that not be good?!!

This procedure is typically done by transgender men or non-binary individuals who need a more traditionally masculine appearance to match their gender identity.


Trans Express links to a good article on the subject of top surgery.

Purging

The number one reason most of us purge is because, as they say, going on the wagon.  We are stopping all this crossdressing thing and going “straight”.  “No more dressing, just going to appreciate my boring male clothes for the rest of my life.”       


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a topic that is, sadly, probably familiar to most of you who are reading this.  No matter where you are in the spectrum, I'm betting that you have purged at least once.  As for me?  Been there, done that, bought the [fill in the blank] more than once.....  Nice guest post, By Stephanie Julianna, on Kandi's blog.

The Convenient Women: A Response to a Dismissive Transsexual

Get over it girls.  We’re not better nor worse than you.  We’re just different.  Let us be.  Celebrate us, as we celebrate you.


 

 

Ah, the "I'm more trans than you" subject has risen it's ugly head yet again.  A very solid response indeed....

When it all goes well

A number of weeks ago, I was talking with the Ever Lovely Mrs J about the (now long passed) birthday situation and my lovely partner asked – with a cheecky smile – if there was anything I wanted in the fancy department.

 

 

Ah, the Ever Lovely Mrs J.....   Lynn is so lucky to have her!  As is often the case with Lynn's posts, this one comes with photos.   Guess who's showing us a new look?

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE YOUR INFLUENCE

Some folks may believe that their lives aren't important or don't matter. You may be influencing someone and may not know it. Another person may be on the cusp of living authentically because you are actually doing it.

 

 

 

 

Short post.  Quality content!

Saying Hello

Have you ever encountered another person in public whom you considered to be transgender or a cross dresser? Have you tried to strike up a conversation or just walked the other way?


Good question, from Cyrsti.  Here's my answer:

Yes, many times I have encountered, in public, someone I believed to be trans.  No, I never said hello.  Why?  Well, for two reasons.  1 - I didn't want to make the trans woman (in this case, not referring to trans guys) know that I read her and, 2 - I really didn't want to out myself.

Cyrsti has a different take on this, thanks to a comment on her blog from Emma.  Go here to read more.

Trans person who manages a sexual abuse helpline for women explains what trans and cis women have in common

Carter underlines that the endless debate about trans women’s access to such services is in itself  invalidating and damaging. When cis women fight to exclude trans women from our services, she adds, they are essentially saying that trans women’s lives aren’t as important as their own.  

What a great post, from The Independent, a UK website.  You can find the link at Trans Express.

Two Steps Forward...

Maybe I am hesitant because I know people I actually know outside the interwebs might read this now. I have packed 30-plus years into the 2-plus years of this blog, and so for someone who's known me for the longer period, I worry about it being too much, too shocking, too bizarre.

Shannyn has opened herself to family now and it's two steps forward.....
