      As I keep reading all of the news articles chronicling the attempts to eradicate our very existence, I do wish that the Biden administration would let us do something to reduce the trail for those who want to out us, denigrate us, humiliate us, and eliminate us. If they would allow us to change our social security number, then erase the record of doing so, it would prevent people like Paxton from zeroing in on us. I read an article this morning that there are 13 Red states that are planning to initiate legislation based on birth gender. This could mean they try to reverse our licenses, and public records. Imagine the damage. Unfortunately, in so many of these states, there is an R super-majority, and reasoning with these (expletive deleted) individuals will not happen. These super-majority politicians ignore every medical professional and their associated professional organization with glee in their eyes. Even if the courts try to intervene, it is like playing bingo. Sooner or later, these proposed laws will go to the super-majority R-led/appointed Supreme Court, and we know where that will lead.   I plan on enjoying my last year or so of having a license and social security records that reflect the brain I was born with (female), rather than my male genitalia at birth. I wish I could get a rosier vision in my head. Even if we get out to vote in the national election in November, these super-majority R-led states will still make our lives hell.

      These folks sure have an unhealthy fascination and irrational hatred for those both giving and receiving medical help for established medical help.   Unfortunately it is hurting so many who need help.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good morning all! I have my BA scheduled in May (yay!) and as the date gets closer, I wanted to get some opinions on what questions I should be asking during my pre-op appointment. I've already had a consult, and I got good vibes and my questions at the time were all answered, but I suppose I'm in that mindset of "you don't know what you don't know." First question I have are what questions should I be asking at the pre-op appointment?   Secondly-what was recovery like? TImeframes for going back to work, pain levels, tips and tricks, all are welcome. Thank you all!

      "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt". Almonds are a member of the peach family. Maine is the only state that has a one-syllable name. There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. Los Angeles' full name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula"

      Phew, well we can agree on the "be yourself" bit! And yes, chatting to others as yourself; in my experience that is so crucial. My sense is that, on the whole, people warm to me far more now that I am out of the closet than they ever did before when I was hiding.

      The trans people I was stating were the commonly quoted. In effect I am in one of those other categories but my thoughts still stand.   In my view it's not really a case of blending in though. I tend to think about things. One of my thoughts has been to look throught the eyes of a woman. Getting up every morning. Putting my clothes on (female) and going out. Am I seen as trans? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I don't really know. I just dress in the morning and live out my day. Yes I can be nervous. I'm that sort of person. When I think about it may cis women are self conscious too. Maybe not the same things but to the same effect. If I had been born female would it really have changed my world as regards being accepted as a person or would it have just brought other worries of equal magnitude?   There will always be  haters and agressive activism will only be fuel to their fire. In my experience the key is not to just blend in but to be yourself and chat to others as youself. Yes, that probably means you blend into your position in society but the only other option is to be outside.   Locally I look around me and hear what people say about different minorities. They are upset and even, at times, afraid of even speaking anything negative at times for fear of ending up in court. It is possible to get a prison sentence for anti trans speech and there are those who would attempt to achieve this end in the name of activism. The same is true with other minority groups. I suppose a worry I see, which luckily or otherwise I don't really have the option of locally, is that trans groups banding together in activism will be seen as a dangerous faction whereas an individual getting along (openly) with their life will not.   In my view many of the comments being made actually almost admit defeat as soon as they are made. Legeslation does not change the people. Only the people will do that. A big stick will only prompt an even bigger one.   Tracy

      I wore long skirts for years before going fulltime. Now I never wear long pants. I mostly wear skirts, skorts, or rompers. Occasionally, I wear shorts, usually over tights. I just hate long pants,
