Knowing that this is not healthy but also knowing you’d rather die than to be alone and apart of them.






Jaclyn needs some loving comments.

Kind of Curiosity

“He’s over there?”
“Where?” his wife said.
“See the woman in the red jacket?”
“Next to her on the right.”
“I only see a woman.”
“Yeah, that’s him. That’s a man.”


I just love this girl's posts!  Enjoy it yourself, by going here.

All Good Things Come to an End

As recently mentioned, over an eighteen day stretch, I was dressed for fifteen of those days.




Nice post from our very active blogger, Kandi.   She has a few comments about her recent trip as well as a lot of fabulous photos.

Kate Collins: a tribute

I am heartbroken to have to write that my friend Kate Collins passed away the other evening. 



Sue has a tribute for her good friend, Kate, who recently passed away.  For those who may have known Kate, Sue has a few nice pictures to remember her by.  Even if you didn't know Kate, you're free to shed a few tears for her when reading Sue's post.

Exceeding Our Programming

Not so terribly long ago the boogeyman of polite society was the homosexual. A huge part of humanity lived in fear of discovery. They died rather than be castrated by the state. These were good people who would never have harmed anyone else. Quite the opposite, they desired only to be allowed to do what they would want for others; live as they were made and as they desired and leave others to do the same. 


This post, unfortunately, tells it like it is in today's society.  In reference to the paragraph, above, "yesterday's" boogeyman was the homosexual.  You probably know where Halle is going with this post...."Today's" boogeyman is.......  Be sure to read this one, and leave a comment on Halle's blog.

Very much a night to remember 💜




I just loved this very positive post, from Lynn.  Her line, above, says it all.  Among other things, it involves hair, which is always a popular subject with me!

I Go

Beyond your neighborhood, you might think that you are safe, but I always remember driving on I-90 in Boston, 125 miles from home, when a car passed me by blowing its horn and seeing my cousin waving as he passed by. (I was en homme at the time.)


 Some thoughts on driving "dressed" from Mega-T-Blogger, Stana.

In an interview, Ashely says he received the most criticism from the gay community.  That surprised him but he doesn’t let it get to him. 




This is a re-post, from Pretty Business World. Thanks to Rhonda, for sharing.

Are men hard wired to be sexist?

For years there has been laws and education to change people's mindset, and to a fair extent this has worked and continues to do so. But I still wonder why when young lads get into the pub they can't resist making sexist or lewd comments as a lady walks past.


Good post, from Andrea.  She has some comments regarding the question, above, and asks for your opinion.

Random Thoughts on Nine Years "Out"

Still, on a deeper level, am I better off than I was nine years ago?





Long time blogger and friend of T-Central, Sophie, shares some random thoughts after nine years of transition.  As for the answer to the question, above, you will just have to read her post .

city ​​and park

At the Rituals in the Rathausgalerien, I asked again about my favorite perfume, Poem d'Azar. Unfortunately, they obviously took that out of the repertoire. Incomprehensible to me - it was simply stunning.


Although Violetta is new to T-Central, she certainly is not a new blogger, since she's been blogging since 2017.

Violetta is from Austria, and you'll notice that her blog is not in English.  There is, however, a translate button near the top right of her home page.

Do enjoy her blog.  in the latest post, city ​​and park, you find plenty of photos of Violetta along with some beautiful scenery.

Let’s say 80% of the time I’m looked after. Then maybe 15% being awesome service: awesome, as in the assistant is chatty, funny, really helpful, etc. The other chunk? Ignored, blanked, shrugged at, ‘busy’ talking to a colleague, etc.



Lynn had a nice day of shopping.  Living the US, I'm not familiar with the shops she visited.  Read the post to see what she bought!  Also note her shoe size (about two sizes smaller than mine, translating US to UK women's sizes).

Blanchard debunked: Surveys show that all kinds of people experience "autogynephilia

Anyone who follows the intense anti-trans propaganda of the day, will have made note of the way the "autogynephilia" theory is used to invalidate transgender women and other gender variant people. "Gender critical" TERFs love the theory, as it allows them to present trans women as perverted predators. 

I do believe that most trans folks, especially those under 40 years of age, have never heard of Ray Blanchard.  In my earlier years, when I did lots of reading to try to figure myself out, I came across his writings and was appalled by much that he wrote.  In this post, which is well worth reading, most of his theories are thrown down the proverbial drain and, for that, I say amen.  

A nice assortment of links is included at the end of the post.

In the pink

A couple of times this winter (here and here) I've noticed a trend in designer shop windows for an all-over pink look, specifically cerise, which is the colour of this font. I said I'd comment in more detail one day and that day has arrived ...


It's a fashion post, from Sue.  She has even included a photo of her in pink!  Go here for an easy read, all in pink.

Coming to terms with the 'Female' brain

Today a very good lady friend of mine is celebrating her birthday, for various reasons I can't be with her or send a card, but we did have a video call this morning and I was able to show her the card I had bought for her and read the words I had written inside. After thanking me for the card and the words she said "How could you have ever thought you were not female?" and went on to say "a man would never write words like that".


I totally get this post and many of you will too.

A Bit Tied Up

I’ve not worked anywhere that required a shirt and tie as a minimum in many years but it always irritated me. For me the shirt and tie was the absolute opposite of what it was to be a transwoman, or a woman, even though I wasn’t open about the whole gender thing.





This is a nice post, from Emilia.  She ponders just how "we" should dress and how "we" may be perceived by others by what "we" wear.

Deciding how to get dressed can be hard for me

For most people, it's easy to figure out how to get dressed for the day.  For me, things are a little more complicated.


Can you guess why it's more complicated?  Go here for the answer.  It's short; it's sweet; it's from Marian!

An Observation

How is it that for so many of us, the very first time we tried on some item of feminine apparel we know. We know that our unknown path forward has changed, usually we do not know how the change will affect us or why, we just know it to be true. Time and age are constant, but the urges seem to grow stronger when we gain the age of understanding, normally in our teen age years.


This is a lovely guest post, on Rhonda's blog, from Janet Stickney.  It's short and sweet and well worth reading.

Bad apples

This week has seen two events that have sickened me. One was a person who was exposing themselves in a shop in Nottingham. The other was the conviction of a rapist. In both cases, the criminals in question identified as trans.



It just sickens me when I see someone identifying as trans committing crimes, as mentioned above.  I often wonder if a male, charged with rape or a male charged with indecent exposure can even be trans, at least by my definition.  To see the press use the word, "transgender", in conjunction with someone charged with a crime such as these just makes me sick.  We seem to be seeing more and more of this in our society, and while the crimes committed are dreadful and immoral, what they do to society's perception of those who are truly trans is just tragic.  If you haven't already read Bad Apples, please do.

Transgender Safe Spaces

......I had the police called on me when I tried to use the restroom. I easily explained my situation to the cops and was sent on my way.



I really enjoyed this post, from Cyrsti.  It speaks of real-life situations that, I'm sure, many of you can relate to.

Too many nots spoil the chance

If this is the time you want to do more about your trans nature – wherever you may be under that big ol’ Trans Umbrella  – try not to listen to the List of Nots. Feel the fear, perhaps, but do it anyway. Go as far as you need to and know you can always change direction.


It's the new year and, with that, comes resolutions.  Perhaps one of those might just be regarding your "trans nature"?  It's a good post, from our friend, Lynn Jones.
