Talk About Passable!

I'm transitioning at work and I don't start living full time until January, but my hair has grown out to shoulder length.

Anyway, I'm a housekeeper in a hospital and 2 of the male patients have crushes on me. One said he almost asked me to marry him and the other offered to give me his heart.

When I go out to eat....not even "enfemme" so to speak...men stare at me and check me out.

I'm not wearing any shirts cut for women or sporting purse or even makeup.

Anyone else have this before they went full time?

It's a good feeling and tells me that I'm physically ready and I'm more passable than I think. Still, can't wait to go at in January.

Heck yeah, marriage proposals?, live organs donated?, you pass :P Your therapist might not be clockin you yet but sounds like "full time" is any time at this point and thats really what you want :) Congratulations.

From your picture, I'd say congratulations you're already there! When I had my hair longer, I had taken my mother to lunch and the waitress approached from the back and asked, "What would you ladies like?" I was still wearing a mustache at the time (trying my best to look male) so when she got to the front she looked startled. I went to my first therapy session with the mustache and looking like I always did and the first thing she asked me was, "How have you managed to pass as masculine?" I have been 'ma'ammed' at restaraunts a lot.

I guess we are just lucky now. When I was determined to be a boy like everyone thought I was looking like I do was a curse - now having embraced me as myself a female, my baby face and lack of secondary male indicators is a blessing.

Good luck,

Sally

Totaly passable, Congrats.

I have been full time for about 1.5 years, maybe a little more. But I have been ma-amed alot. I think that I get sired a lot more now after starting HRT and going full time witch is a bummer big time, I have to correct them.

I was with my mother one day walking out of a 7 11 one day I was driving my mother around, before going full time, There was a cashier standing out side taking a smoke break. as we were gitting in my car the gal turned and looked at us and said "You ladies have a good day."

Got in the car my mother looked at me and said "Only your friends would call you a ladie," My only replie was "I do not know that Girl, I dont come in here maybe once a year maybe, and I get that in a lot of places."

To say the least she was not happy at all.

I also have a fear of going in to the womens restroom, (self confidince) but early this morning I was in Palisades about 20 miles east of Grand Junction. I have been working alot this past week with my work and also helping a friend lay concrete at here Grannys house. Did not have time for a shower. I walked in to the truck stop and I asked for a shower. With out saying a word she handed me the key and said that the shower is in the ladies restroom. Did not even realize that they only had 2 showers, 1 in the mens room and 1 in the ladies.

Im sorry I talk to much,

but totaly Congrats.

I get "Can I get you ladies something to drink?" when my wife and I go out to eat. It's really, REALLY cool. Feels good.

      Funny.  I always thought this referred to a macho-type guy.   But I can see how it could be understood this way.

      While drinking my first cup of coffee, and watching the bird feeders. There were two woodpeckers on the suet block, the smaller one is very regular here. It’s a female Red-Bellied Woodpecker, the larger one is a rare visitor called a Common Flicker also female. I find that funny because she’s not been that common at my feeders.    Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      You are worthy, valued, and loved.

      I have had a history of thinking gay folks would understand issues only to find they didn't.  Perhaps that shows how different sexual preference is from gender.  I don't know if my gay friends can truly understand gender issues just as i don't fully understand differences in the attractions that exist between people.  Perhaps supporting others regardless of attraction or gender is the best we can do.     Maybe a non-binary member can explain.  I know that my life is filled with both male and female aspects.   I choose to express and follow the feminine as I'm comfortable and at home here but for some a middle place may suit.   Hugs,   Charlize

      @Mmindy I love the cartoon! It's the perfect meme foe a cold winter day.

      Coffee has brewed. Come get a cup.

      Good morning everyone,   It's 11°F clear, and the sun is just rising. The coffee is brewing, and I've started a fire in the shop wood stove. It's going to take a lot longer to be comfortable out there. My business partner is up from The Villages in Florida, he's under dressed for this weather. Fortunately for him he'll be spending the day with our CPA doing the business taxes. Yesterday he sat and watched me weld pipe hangers together, then assemble pipe sections for one of our training props. He was supersized when I passed him a hand held welding shield. He had never watched the welding process, and said it was like using a glue gun with sparks and molten metal. We discussed the future direction, and activity of the company as we're both getting older.   Hugs for you all,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      @Willow even if it doesn't work, how cool to have an antique clock that belonged to your grandfather!!!!!! And, the memories it must evoke. How awesome!

      I don't hear many taking about messaging the scalp which is what I have been doing for my m2f daughter who is 15 now.  Along with her taking biotin, blockers and  now estrogen, her hair is among the fullest of any girl is her class adn she has been able to grow it to her lower back.  Best of luck to all of you, you can only try your best and make sure you can do all you can.

      I identify with a lot of what you say.  My parents just weren't affectionate with me.  They were affectionate with my older brothers, and to some extent with my sister because she is the youngest, but I was mostly left out.  My sister and I are very close, and we were each other's sources of physical contact and warmth.     I didn't really have an idea of what normal parental affection looks like until joining my forever family and watching my husband and my female partners with their kids.     As an adult (sort of....as I dislike adulting), I'm probably needy and codependent.  When nervous, I immediately seek a partner to cling to and a lap to curl up on.  I can't imagine the pain of a breakup...that kind of loss would not be something I could survive.

      That got me thinking. I don't believe I had my parents tell me I Love you. When my mom started about 3 years ago. It seemed strange but nice. It seems that the love was there, just not open.  My grandfather was the smartest man I have ever known. Showed me a lot. Being I was the only grandson. (I was back then, I guess.)   I guess that my life has been screwed up for a while now. I just want to know where the rewind button is?? Anyone?     Hugs to my friends,   Kymmie

      First off, good on you to speak up and speak out, especially to folks who may or may not be allies or supportive of those under the trans umbrella.  Doing so takes courage.   I've spoken before audiences of primarily Gay & Lesbian folks, sometimes in a training setting, but sometimes in more casual situations.  It really has depended on the setting and the kinds of questions I and other trans speakers receive.  I try to explain about that "umbrella" business, and how that's much different than being either Gay or Lesbian; more amorphous, more controversial in some ways, and much less easier to define.  Even trans folk can't agree on definitions.   The important thing, for me, is stressing what we all have in common, and what our common goals are, and have always been; educating the general public, creating understanding, creating allies, reducing the hate.  That's common ground, and that we should all be able to agree on.   Carolyn Marie
