    Hi Emily It was probably a shock to them and you mum sounds really good and that your dad was there means he cares as well even if he did not talk. It's a start and in time it may well get better. Take care Carrie

    Good morning All. Coffees on.

    My wife and ate out with four friends on the socially-distanced patio at a local restaurant, last night. We haven't seen them since last year. I got an interesting comment: "Your face looks thinner." Well, I guarantee that I haven't lost weight. If my face is different, it must be because it is more feminine! I didn't think my face was still changing that much. It has been three and a half years since I started HRT. But our friend noticed a difference in the last year. That made my weekend! 😄

    My parents

    Well my wife and I had lunch with my parents today and it was the first time I had seen them since March according to her I have changed a lot. So as we were were getting ready to leave my mom asked me point blank if I am getting a sex change. I just responded yes and I have been on hormones for 2 months now. Then I was asked well why and how long have you known this. I said because I was tired of being miserable and I didn’t want to kill myself over it I just wanted to be happy. I said I have felt different my entire life and that I’m finally doing something thing about it. I was then asked about my work and if they knew I said no I’m not ready for that yet. She replied That I don’t ever have to. I said that I do because I will be going full time and I will be getting a name change along with everything else. Then it was asked why didn’t I tell her sooner I said the only people that knew was my wife and sister no one else it’s not a subject I am comfortable with the world knowing. All in all I think it went ok she did hug me before we left there wasn’t really anything negative said. My dad on the other hand never said a word and barely looked up from his phone

    A re-introduction

    So, after about four years and my mind changed on a good many things in absentia from the site: Hello again! I'm Lunitaria - a name I crafted for myself that I have been using for a few years now. I'ma non-binary person that is leaning very much towards an actual gender affirmation, or transition (not being sure of the proper term to use). I was raised in a predominantly religious family and spent many years living with them and the... birth name that was given to me. I've been working in or at a computer for longer years than I can fully remember. I am taking the now-delayed and complicated steps towards fully revealing the self that has been hidden for most of my lifetime, because I find that I do have a family that supports me now, and live somewhere that allows somewhat better access to the needed resources for proper care.

    Greetings and stuff

    Hi Susan - thanks! It's been an interesting ride. Back when I transitioned I would never have guessed that trans*folk would be anywhere near as visible as is now the case, let alone a common subject in the media. There was a lot less info back then and finding therapists, access to HRT, and surgical options was sparse. When I first started feeling the waters with transitioning, it was in the mid 90s. At that time it seemed near impossible, but got a little better closer to 2000 as the internet was really starting to populate and access to information increased, which was an immense help. I will forever be grateful for and admire those who transitioned earlier than that. The world was so much less accepting prior to the 90s. Thanks Sara! Thanks KayC!

    Makeup Advice?

    Hammertime, All of the recommendations made by everyone that has commented previously are terrific, however, makeup usage and application is such a personal science. Therefore, to offer you advice, it would help to know a little more about you and your objectives. To offer recommendations, I'd like to know if you are trying to hide masculine flaws, or, are you blessed with androgynous features that don't require any camouflage? Makeup tips that "transform" are quite a bit more involved and require specialized products and techniques that really aren't suitable for genetic women, or those in our sisterhood who possess flawless skin and feminine features. I'm one of those women who uses makeup to help transform and camouflage my masculine features. To achieve such ends, I apply makeup a little more heavily than a genetic woman might. Still, with careful techniques and the right products, I have learned to create a very natural appearance. I can't say that people don't notice I'm wearing makeup, but the way I apply it makes it look natural. So, let us all know what you are trying to achieve, and our advice can be more focused and specific.

    I found a man? Or did I?

    It could be that he is reading apprehension in your attempt to not seem pushy. I totally get why you might worry about being too pushy though. Like others have suggested, maybe shoot him a text when you feel up to it. Maybe you can arrange a skype 'date; or something!

    Thank you for the thumbs up dear Carolyn. I do a lot fancy films of the old period.

    Downton Abbey

    I saw it and yes, I thought it was well done. I was not a huge fan of the series as my wife was, but this was a very well made, well acted story that stands on its own. That said, it does help if you're at least familiar with the characters and their back stories. Carolyn Marie

    Downton Abbey

    Has any one watched the film (not the episodes)? I want to buy it today and I don't want to give 20 dollars if it not good to Apple. I am so bored today, in fact all Sundays I feel that way. Unfortunately, they don't have it for rent on Apple TV, I see it only as Buy It, so is it worth it?
  15. Hey Sara! I’m pretty new to this whole shebang too and just wanted to say that you couldn’t have picked a more lovely or open community forum! it already sounds like you’re being an amazing supportive partner and really a transition isn’t something that should come between you. I have benefit immensely from therapy, just having a third party to discuss my feelings with and who can offer profession insights is great. I would say not to downplay how you feel, she’s going through a lot but so are you x love xx

    Good morning All. Coffees on.

    Hello everybody! Hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth with all fingers still attached. 😁 I had to work and it was a REALLY bad day. Relaxing today and thinking about going to the store for some retail therapy.

    Hi Daniki. Mr. Trump has no incentive to help us. We're not a particular large voting block, we don't represent a significant financial subpopulation. So unfortunately, why bother? I don't want to be crass, but in Washington DC, the unspoken mantra is: Follow the money!
  23. Hey Madeline! @Dinaki is right in that the first step is nearly always a gender therapist. They hold the keys if you will. You're on the right track otherwise. Dress, speak, walk and generally present as your real gender. At fifteen, you should notify your school system so they can make sure you get the correct name and pronouns in class. Maybe get a pocket bra and some breast forms. I know it's tempting, but don't go overboard. You don't need HH cup breasts. 😋 Presentation is key. You want to be on the girly side in your presentation. The other girls have genetics and the weight of a three and a half billion other women behind them. You're going to need to try a little harder than they do. That's OK, it's fun! You might consider puberty blockers. Testosterone does a lot of damage at your age that you might feel more comfortable without. That's something to discuss with your therapist though. HRT and surgery are largely out of the picture at your age anyway. Until you hit eighteen, most doctors won't even consider you as a candidate. Hugs!

    Well, it's a kind of virus. Just spread through hate and fear. That's the theory, but they're applied unevenly. They can be enforced to punish "those folks," to "protect" the "right people." The right people are white, cis, straight, christian and rich if you were curious. Some of the other bits can be overlooked if you're rich enough. This absolutely needs to end though. You're right about that. Hugs!

    Introduction

    Thank you so much for all your kind welcomes!! I hope to get to know at least some of you better, if not all of you. Well there’s not really much to say... I like music and drama? That’s about it. As for my journey here, I guess it started with both a weird desire to be and dress as the opposite gender as my AGAB, and euphoric feelings I get when dressing in female clothes. Eventually I started looking more into the transgender identity. I really wanted to interact with a community of trans-accepting people, which led me to this forum.

    seriously? In America? The trans hate in US is getting even worse than the third countries. Dont you have laws in US that protects us all. Mister Trump has no wake up and do something about it and he needs to stop his daily solariums.
  27. Hello dear Madeline Your mom is accepting you and that is a plus for you dear. Second, you mommy along with you, should both go and talk to a gender therapist. You are very young Madline, that's why a doctor needs by your side. I am certain, a better answer will come up to you as I do not know the steps taken as I am foreigner and we do completely different in Europe than USA. Good luck to you Madeline and when I transitioned, I was at your age dear.
