      Well, Shawna and I had some crazy things happen today. The Good news is she's not coming to Oregon to visit. The other good news is it sounds like she was offered a job today about 15 minutes away from our house. It's a government contract and they want her to start yesterday. So, needless to say, things are moving along really really rapidly. It's looking more like I'm going to fly to Vermont and we'll both drive back with a truck loaded with her things. She was talking about driving alone, but there's NO WAY I'm letting her drive X/C by herself. We'll drive together, Thelma and Louise style.   So, as things firm up, we'll repost with progress notes.   Update: She just texted me and she's definitely been hired! They want her here on 6/29!    PA and SL

      I didn't get all the way through.  It was useful to me, but coming to this site was more useful.  It's really useful to read the sections about feeling alienated from the boys and wanting to be with the girls, but that appears in so many stories.  The piece that I was trying to figure out for myself is why don't I care so much about presenting as a girl IRL.  Here, I present as a girl because it's my inner self and I feel very girly inside most of the time.  But I just don't need to present that way for casual interactions in the grocery store.  I think.  I guess I won't know until I try it.  Still figuring it out, but I don't feel the aching need which so many here express.  I feel the aching need to communicate as we do here, that's where I feel most girly.  I want to interact IRL that way with my friends and that's the biggest mystery for me, how to get those interactions with close friends.  I think I understand it now, I was always holding back because I didn't want to be seen as being flirting.  Now I can just say what I want honestly and I think it will turn out better.  After quarantine, right?   All of that leads me to the most important thing, which it is all very individual.   I read and I read and I read.  I find authors who have a voice who seem similar to my inner voice, but no one is the same.  I'd say my closest match is Adrienne Nash.  I like her because she resonates so much with me.  We're all different sparkly snowflakes, that makes it hard for us to figure out what we are.  But it is all valid.   Hugs --Grace

      Yes, a minor can change their name. A minor has to fill out this form https://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/nc500.pdf. It requires either getting the parents' signatures or issuing a notice to allow the parents to object.

      Thanks for all the replies. I’ve just kept playing on the humor. It just gets frustrating at times. the funny thing was there was another mechanic that had long hair too and they never said much about it. I can only imagine what will happen when I get my ears pierced haha. I don’t want to involve hr yet because I’m not ready to come out at work yet. Susan I wish my hair was like that unfortunately that is a wig. My hair is at the bottom of my ears now so it’s progressing.

      Thanks Jackie!

      Thanks Em! It's definitely more updated.   Things are moving at the speed of light with Shawna and I! We've had some HUGE things happen this morning. We'll update as they firm up!

      I am also from California and I discussed some of the issues I had with name change on this thread: My advice is: bring three copies of each form; bring change, cash, check book and credit card; bring envelopes.
    • Dana Michelle
      I've grown my hair long and still present as male because I am not passable yet. I've had a lot of job interviews where they wrap things up in a couple minutes. Since there are attitudes that long hair on men (or those who appear as men) is not a "business look", I wonder if once they see my long hair they decide they don't want to hire me. Nobody has said a word about it so I can't take legal action for discrimination.     I would recommend against that. It seems disrespectful to people with Down's Syndrome.    
    • VickySGV
      As another Californian,  my suggestion is to go to Transgender Law Center's website.    https://transgenderlawcenter.org/   They have comments on the process written by their staff of lawyers, and have fillable legal forms you can download for starts.  If you are brave enough, you can fill out the forms on your own and take them to the court yourself, but if you have an LGBT Community Center near you, they have law student and lawyers who will help you do it for free.  I do have legal training and did it myself successfully but believe me I was an emotional wreck for part of the time.

      I know I could just look this up on google, but I would rather get first-hand accounts from others on how to go about this. So, how do you get your name changed in California? Will you need to get a lawyer? What are all the obstacles in doing so? Can you do it as a minor? If so, how?
    • michelle_kitten
      Another approach might be confrontational.  It might be appropriate to say, "What if i were gay?  What difference does it make?  It really isn't any of your business."  Or, "I am not gay, but if i were it would be none of your business."  I might add "Even if i was, you'd have nothing to worry about."  Taking on the issue entirely on the level of the length of hair might be a way to deal with it as well.  "Does the length of my hair in anyway have anything to do with my job performance?  Am I breaking any kind of written company grooming policy?  If not, then my appearance choices are mine to make and if they have nothing to do with my ability to function as an employee then commenting on them borders on harassment."  Likewise, "I really don't like you commenting on my hair or the choices of clothes i wear, or anything else not related to my job performance.  Can you please, just give it a rest?"  You could be snarky and confrontational. "Huh.  I didn't know looking a certain way was a job qualification here."   If you can get away with being obnoxious, you can out do him with the implied insult.  Pick something about his appearance and imply a negative connotation about it.  "You  know, i've always wondered when i look at you if you have a mild case of Down's Syndrome."  There are a lot of possibilities.   You have to choose the method that works best for you, and is most effective.  If laughing it off doesn't work, then maybe confrontational methods might.   Of course, there is always HR and the threat of lawsuits for harassment, but that tends to create a hostile workspace, and i would only go there as a last resort.  Usually slamming someone, especially if it is clearly a joke and you can get others to laugh, is a sure way to get most people off your back.

      Ok. Good morning/afternoon all! I just had the absolute most amazing experience EVER!!!!   As I was walking back into work from lunch, I saw one of the front office people and called them by the name I knew them by. Ashley. They proceeded to let me know it was just Ash from now on and they are getting legal name change an all. To which brought on my conversation about me being trans the other way around. And it felt AMAZING to know I work with such an amazing variety of people!   Our HR manager is gay, one of my very good friends is lesbian, and now us trans on either side of the coin... All under the same roof!!! I love it!!!   Hugs ❤️ Kali
