Sisters, Sisters, There Were Never Such Important Sisters

As we approach the 1 year Anniversary of the Pandemic Lockdown, I find myself missing many things.


Like all of us, Julie misses those days when we could all gather and enjoy each other's company.  Read her thoughts here.

I Miss 2012

I think it was the year where I finally grew into myself as a person, in the sense that I don't feel very different from who I was back then, save for the hope for the future.



It's been a while since our lovely blogger, from Brazil posted, so why not take a look?

Parents who love and support their transgender children are saints! I can't imagine having such supportive parents when I was growing up.


Cyrsti has a short post on a subject that's near and dear to my heart.

Two-Year HRT Anniversary: Time Flies

It's still the second anniversary of getting approved for estrogen (Estradiol) and the T-blocker Spironolactone. If you follow the blog, you know the Spiro is long gone now (three months post-orchiectomy) and I am just taking Estrogen now.

I love updates, and this one is short and sweet.

Thanks, Shannyn, for including a link to T-Central on your blog!

A Daughter and Her Father (and her mother too)

So, here I am. Torn between a supportive father by his actions, and a non-supportive father by his emotional responses. Will this situation ever be resolved? I think about asking him point blank about what his feelings towards me are as his daughter. Stay tune, if I ever do broach the topic with him. For now I will know in my heart that he loves me as he always has, no matter what my successes or failures. 

This really well thought out post, from Stephie, will take a few minutes to read, so grab a cup and enjoy.  It's primarily about her relationship with her father who would appear to be a typical guy.  I think she and her Dad are going to be just fine, but read her post and come to your own conclusions. 

Stephie also mentions her Mom and brothers.  I feel for her, regarding her current relationship she has with her Mom, and it has nothing to do with being trans.  Been there, done that Stephie.  I get it.

Thoughts of the Day

I’ve been pondering a career change. “But Beth, during a pandemic, as a trans woman, in your 50s?” I know, great idea, right?! It’s just wearing, especially considering the “career” I have is one that was thrust upon me and not one I was intending to do.



Beth is thinking about life again.  She's sharing her thoughts with us, which include HRT, privilege, mammograms, career, the movie, Soul, and even more!  Lots of thoughts and an interesting blog post.

More steps in trans living 4: coming out to lovers

......nature can be cruel because often in our early twenties we want to suppress our transness, marry, raise families, only to find that our gender variance bursts out again with a vengeance twenty years later, leaving us to square the re-emergence of a status we thought we'd overcome with our startled spouse and children. It can be a shock to them after all that time to find that dad is really a lady, that the man or woman you married is anything but.


Wow, Sue!  Quite a few similarities in my own life.   I'm sure many others also can relate to your comments on coming out to lovers.

A look back – February

In 20 and 14 that’s what I call my Compliment Dress. I’ve had it for a fair few years and whatever I wear it, someone usually says something nice about it. It’s length is such that I keep it for when opaques are called for.


To use the title of a song, by Roxette, She's Got the Look!  So, why not show it off?  Lynn shows us some of her February outfits over the years.  Which one is your fav?  I love that dress, from 2019, and it does show off "the look", along with some attitude! 

Trans People Are The Same As Everyone Else

'People think we wake up and decide to be trans' 





Don't you just love that comment?  It's from an article in The Guardian.  Go to Rhonda's blog for the link.

Another excellent day…

After the usual “do you have one of our cards, Ma’am?” and “do you want to apply for one?” questions, the elderly female clerk commented on my name, how it used to be a man’s name, but in the last 25 years, only young women are given the name.


I love "feel-good" blog posts!  This one's from Mandy.

Changing the T’s and C’s

I genuinely don’t believe that most people are educated to the sheer level of fear and worry that has to be overcome to openly transition, it impacts every facet of our lives, quite often the whole idea of coming out to people is terrifying simply because we are changing the T’s and C’s of the relationship and can never know if folk will continue merrily on or just walk away and leave.


DeeDee wants to break out of her "homemade prison".  This can mean ending some relationships but also making new relationships.  Read more here.

Asked about HRT

As anyone can tell you, it's a slow process.  First, the drugs have to build up in your system, then they take effect.  Like a cisgender girl, the effect is then gradual.  I didn't just wake up one day with big boobs!  (That would've been hard to explain!)




What a nice post, from Sophie!  Sharing her experiences with HRT is what trans-blogging is all about.

In this blog post, following a question from a reader, Sophie looks back on her eight years of hormone replacement therapy.


Why Ladyboys Have It Harder In Finding A Serious Relationship ?

If you are curious to know why ladyboys find it harder or if you’re a ladyboy yourself, please keep reading.


Here's a topic you rarely see on T-Central.  The author, Amanda, is a transwoman.  The subject matter is clean and it's worth a read.

Trans widows

“Trans Widows Voices” is a particularly poisonous site. It encourages women to stew in their hatred, and foments the myth of autogynephilia. The self-righteous victimhood damages the relationship with the former partner, and harms both the divorcing wife and the trans woman.


A very interesting post, from Clare, with a message to the wives of trans women at the end. 

Thanks, Clare, for providing a link to T-Central on your blog!

As I nodded off, I found myself thinking on what might it be like to have had my nails done.



So, I'm sure you're all wondering: Does Lynn want her talons or toes done?  If the suspense is killing you, you're just going to have to go here for the answer.

Yet another post-surgical complication

I’m so tired of having to worry about my new vagina and whether something is wrong. I really wish I had just been born with the right hardware in the first place so I didn’t have to think about it all the time and I had something I could rely on to work properly. 


Just giving Haven an opportunity to vent......
