2021: a look back

Thanks to Calie and the team over at T Central for being kind enough to feature my blog and continuing to showcase posts from across the trans community.



There was something in this post that spoke to me: "Feature it, Calie!"   It must have been the title, because whenever Lynn takes a look back, it generally involves photos (as is the case this time).  There's more, however, which really does make this one worth featuring.

Oh, and I can be doesn't hurt if you have a link to T-Central on your blog (and Lynn does)!

Happy New Year!

[Fashion] 2021’s Greatest Hits and Mrs……

......I find myself wittering; a week or so of excessive food and drink has made me itchy to be creative and this blog is one of my outlets......





Our Retro Girl has put together a 2021 set of retro fashion snaps for us.  It's all her and the pictures are gorgeous!

Haecceity or We Are What We Hide

“Man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides.” Little did he know how true that is for many of us. You probably see where I am going with this — what I hide is my femininity. That is my haecceity!




This is a guest post, from Lisa, on Kandi's blog, and it's a good one!  This girl really needs to start her own blog, and if she does, it surely will be featured on T-Central.

Lisa, a 60 year old transwoman, has finally accepted herself.  Many of you, whether transitioning or crossdressing, will relate to what she writes in this post.

I was feeling so bad I couldn't hide it and Liz kept asking why.  Unfortunately I have carried the male tendency with me to never show emotion. Of course hormone replacement therapy has helped me to cry and feel emotions, in some cases I am still a rock. 


Cyrsti found herself in somewhat of a funk on Christmas Eve.  It involved grief, but her Christmas ended up on a high note.  Read her blog post for the rest of the story.

A Christmas Wish

I know some who read here are not on a path for transition. Please use your imagination and empathy, and believe what you read. For those who are wrestling with transition and are worried about their future, I know how you feel. 




Last year I featured every holiday post I could find, and put them up every two hours on Christmas eve and on Christmas day.  This year, I decided to go with just one and it did register with me.

A Little Hint

I to-and-fro’d about whether I should get them, and another pair of leggings while I was at it.





This is another of Hannah's beautiful posts, with a Christmas theme.  Much of the post is about just sitting in a cafe in a book shop (been there, done that, LOVE it!). 

As far as Hannah's comment, above, well you will never guess what she was to'ing and fro'ing about but there is a Little Hint hidden in this T-Central post.

Menstrual Products and My Misunderstood Childhood

I had no idea that was what was going on. I really just thought I was a complete whacko. I thought there was something severely wrong with me. I knew for sure that I couldn’t tell anyone. I knew that nobody would understand me.


Kelly shares some thoughts about her childhood.   I do believe that there are many of you out there (myself included) who also could not understand yourself much less having anyone else understand your thoughts as a child.  An excellent post, from Kelly.

Ten Year Anniversary, but Still Not Brave Enough...Yet!

Since I started writing this blog, almost exactly ten years ago, so much has changed.




We haven't seen a blog post from Vivienne in nearly a year and a half.  Indeed, a lot has changed in her life.  In this interesting post, she brings us up to date.  The title is a tease.  Can you guess what the "brave-enough" issue is?  It's probably not what you're thinking.  Read the post, for the answer!

Baby Your Wig

......don’t go cheap when you buy a wig. Wear a cheap wig and it looks like you are wearing a cheap wig.

I have met hundreds of trans folks over the years and, by far, most have resorted to using wigs when presenting as female.  For many, it's due to male-pattern baldness.  For others, myself included, it's to keep the "corporate male" image, meaning short male-styled hair in the working world.  For the many who own wigs, Stana, the queen of Femulators and writes the Mega-T-Blog, Femulate, has some good suggestions on the subject..

Being liberated

This is who I am. This is what I want. No experience “made me like this”. No-one investigates what made someone heterosexual, and gay people strongly object to, mock and ridicule, and have managed to drive to the margins questions of what made them gay. Nevertheless there is widespread certainty on social media of what makes us trans, as if anyone who is not normal must explain themselves and find a cure.


I love a post where the author writes from the heart.  Such is the case with this one, from Clare.

The Scars of being a Crossdresser

Soon after I came out to my Wife about my crossdressing I started shaving my legs and body hair.  That was almost fourteen years ago and I can still remember how good it felt to finally have smooth legs. Likewise it felt good to be finally rid of my chest and body hair too, but soon afterwards I began to pay the price for being over ambitious with the razor on my chest. 


Charlotte did pay a price.  Go to The Scars of being a Crossdresser for the rest of the story.

Most assuredly?

If I were my daughter’s age and with what I know today would I transition fully? 


It's a good question.  My answer?  YES!  Read the post for Joanna's answer to the question.

Strange new worlds 3: get tae f…alkirk

Fortunately there was a number to call the canal control room in case something had gone wrong. I figured that a transvestite in a silver space suit unable to escape the canal car park counted as something going wrong, and eventually got to speak to a harassed guy with a ton of alarms blaring in the background.

If you've followed this blog for some time, you know that Miss Twist has done some amazing photo shoots.  Not everything went right with this one. If you feel like you need a smile, read this post!
