What My Life is Like Beyond the Curtain

Lady Withsass is the pseudonym this blogger goes by.  In this post, our blogger takes you through a point in time when she made her first appointment with a gender therapist and brings you up to date as to what's going on today.  

She ponders:

So it leaves me wondering, is this as good as it gets?  Will I ever get to enjoy the simple pleasures of doing the little things that I have always wanted to do as a woman?

It's not a perfect world for Lady Withsass or her honey.

I feel for her.

I feel for her honey

And, I feel for the woman who left the anonymous comment on this post.

It's just not a perfect world for many of us.

This is an interesting, well written, post to read.  What My Life is Like Beyond the Curtain, is from the blog, Ordinary, Average Woman.

When I discover a new blog, I always go back to the first post.  This one is worth reading.  Go here for that post.

Spending Life Among Women

I often drop by Kathleen's GenderBlog.  Most of her posts can leave the reader deep in thought, but make for quick reads.

Her latest post, Spending Life Among Women, is a good example.  In her post, Kathleen comments:

Some of us adapt to spending time with women very easily; others of us haven’t yet let go of male behavior patterns, and speak to women the way they spoke when they lived as men.

Interesting comment and a good example of the kind of thoughts she offers in nearly every post.  Stop by and take a look.  

GenderBlog is not the only site Kathleen maintains.  There's also Gendersong, which has a wealth of material in it including information of interest to transsexuals, transvestites, and crossdressers.

For those who have had prostrate cancer and intend to transition, there's a very good section here, that you won't find anywhere else.

If you find either of these sites of interest, be sure to let Kathleen know.

Meg has had an interesting series of posts discussing her views of the "endpoints" for trans folks.  Specifically:

  • Occasional crossdressing
  • Full-Time crossdressing
  • Full Gender reassignment
  • Gender fluid
Meg has a post up titled Endgame, discussing her thoughts on just how far a transgender person goes before reaching the "Endgame".  It's the first in a series of posts.  So far, Meg has posts up on three of the four categories.

Go here for the first post in the series, Endgame.

Meg follows up with: 

Endpoint: Full Time

Endpoint: Gender Fluid

Endpoint: Gender Reassignment Surgery

Endpoint: Occasional Crossdressing

Meg is a prolific blogger, always with something to write about.  Drop by her site and leave a comment if you wish.

Thanks to Halle for pointing out this series of posts from Meg's blog, Call Me Meg.

This Broke My Heart Tonight

Before I get to the featured post, I wanted to point out a comment that was left on our previous post.  The comment involves Father's Day which, in the USA, was yesterday, June 15th.  I looked for a Father's Day themed post, but couldn't find the one I wanted.  If this commenter had turned that comment into a post, I would have loved to have featured it.

Today's featured blog post, This Broke My Heart Tonight, is from Joel's REtransition blog.  Joel wanted to remember Zoraida, another recent victim of a hate crime.  

In Joel's words:

It absolutely breaks my heart that this young and promising life was extinguished and left for garbage behind a Dairy Queen. There are far too many stories like this and this is why you will NEVER hear me use the term “trannies” as a blanket epithet to refer to transwomen.

It has been our policy to feature a broad spectrum of blogs on T-Central.  Joel's blog is about his re-transition, from male, to female, and back to male.  I very much admire his courage to write about a subject that is seldom discussed.

Go here, to read about Joel, and go here to check out some interesting links on his well thought out website and blog.

If you do nothing else, however, please remember Zoraida "Ale" Reyes in your thoughts and prayers.

The feminine allure

I recall since the time of puberty looking at women and being drawn to them physically but also desiring to emulate and dress like them. I would admire their feminine beauty all the while wanting to possess it for myself.

I'm sure many of you reading this might nod your head and say, "I could have written this!"

You know, that's what I love about many of the trans-related blogs out there.  The author shares his or her thoughts and it's that sharing of thoughts that helps many of us to better understand ourselves.  These words come from Joanna's recent post, The feminine allure.

Joanna's post deals with the burden placed on the partners of those who are gender dysphoric and her admiration of those who attempt to better understand their partners.

The blog is titled Musings of my everyday life...  Please take a few minutes to go over there and read her current post.  While you're there, take a look at some of her past writings.

We Want to Divorce LGB

Cyndi and Sevan are speaking from a perspective of their part of the world, but I must admit that I have had similar thoughts.

Cyndi writes:

Currently there is a toxic atmosphere in the halls of the LGBT. Gay men who have long held the reigns of power have recently en mass let transsexual women know just exactly what they think of us. We have been ridiculed and attacked numerous times over simple issues of respect. Where we have asked for the dignity to designate for ourselves what we find to denigrate us, we have been ridiculed, shamed and told to grow thicker skin. The problem is that most TS women I have known do not have thick skin enough to take betrayal. We can handle the slurs and bigotry of the outside world. We have been fighting it since the beginning of patriarchy. But to have ones supposed allies turn on you in the midst of battle is an untenable situation.

I've seen it to, and I'd add some in the lesbian community to that list.

Take a look at this post and a couple of the more recent posts from this married couple.  Leave comments here or, preferably, on their blog, Candiussel Corner
