Hi Ladies,

I watched the documentary narrated by Katie Couric the other day, Gender Revolution, and found it very informative.  There seemed to be one thing missing in the discussion and that was there was no mention, unless I missed it, of cross dressing.

I have been doing a lot of thinking since I viewed the presentation about who I am and where I fall on the transgender spectrum.  I dress all the time but am not going to choose surgery.

Anyone else see the program?

Lots of love❤️

Sandra

Yes, I watched it, and thought it was very well done.  More in depth than many such programs, and I liked the way they focused on many different people with different backgrounds, and didn't just focus on a couple of celebrities (although there were a few of those - de rigeur in a show like this.

Unless I missed it, Couric didn't mention her disastrous interview with Carmen Carrera and so missed a chance to publicly apologize, but I guess the show in total served the same purpose.

Yes, she didn't include a segment on cross dressers, but bypassed a few other aspects of the trans community as well.  I even learned a lot myself, especially about the intersexed condition.

Same here, I enjoyed the show and learned more about gender identities.

Another show I enjoy watching that I find can be eye-opener (for me at least) is Gaycation with Ellen Paige (sorry for maybe misspelling her name).

Couric has already made public apologies to Carrera in other places, and this project was indeed part of  her penance for the earlier disaster. 

I have heard from a couple of friends who were involved in the program production, that Cross Dressing was deliberately left out so that attention would be on the emerging young childhood recognition of Trans* gender and emerging non-binary issues and not derailed by the pre-conceptions that cis people had about CDing.

I watched it and enjoyed it. I thought that it was very well done. Her inclusion of the intersex condition was a welcome addition to the program.

I've seen portions of it. I was most pleased that it appeared respectful and did not attempt to fetishize the subjects.

      Listened to my friend's interview with Bill Payne at the time of The Last Record Album and I forgot about this one...

      Yeah, funny that. I got real camera-shy about the same time puberty hit. Now? Yeah, take a picture. I look amazing.   Hugs!

      I think mine will still grow more. My nipples are still tender, and seem to get hard quite often. I have nice firm "A" breasts now.

      Hi Robyn I came out to my sons three months ago. They are 14 and 19. The eldest took it in stride, we jocked a bit about it and he's been trying different ways to call me since then. Seems like pops is sticking (I was mama before and his dad is papa). My youngest is another story. First he said he didn't want to know. I gave him time and I told him a couple of weeks later. He was ok with it, but he was more clingy for a few weeks, but he is totally back to normal now. I embraced his need and just showed him that I'm still here for him exactly the same as ever. He is ok and he is aware of it, but he still calls me mama. That is ok, every kid has their process and their timing and that is perfect. I'm not pushing anything. Also, I'm not on HRT yet so there are not physical changes that makes it easier to see things changing.   Love, understanding and time make a good recipe. Seeing what they need, giving them the space to process it and not pushing more information that what they ask for - sharing what you feel is your gender identity and then let them lead with questions (if there is any, thay can be pretty blasé). They will show you how much information is right for them in the questions they ask.   It's only been 15 weeks and my relationship with my eldest already got closer and it is just as good as always with my youngest.   For what you describe your kids will probably be perfectly ok with it.

      @Willow I didn’t think about the fuel. I think it just celebrated its 2nd year in the tank. We didn’t get much snow last year.    @Bri2020 I’m holding off on another fashion show for a bit. My friend said she has more clothes for me.    it’s very interesting how I’ve changed. I used to disappear like a ghost at picture time.

      This is one I personally have trouble with.     My therapist likes to remind me that I don't have to be fighting all the time.   Hugs!

      Been there! I had larger breasts when I was just heavy. They're the right shape now though. Tragically, my weight-loss routine is not conductive to huge breasts. Well, maybe not huge. I was hoping for a B. C tops. Still, I'm only about halfway to the point where breast growth generally stops in older gals so hopes remain high.   Hugs!

      That's funny. Everyone in my house has at least "B" breasts, even the guys. The women all have at least "D" cups. Both the guys were overweight. The 17 yr old thinned down to normal. The 23 yr old was almost 600 lbs. He's around 300 now. Working hard to get down to 280. He's really strong, but has a lot of extra skin. My 2 older sisters and mom are and were "B" gals. I'm hoping I will be too.

      You talking about wedding ring losing stones brought back a memory. I got married at 18, and unemployed, and my gal 3 months pregnant. I had to buy engagement/wedding ring set from pawn shop. The night before our wedding I decided to clean the rings. I didn't even notice I lost a couple small stones down the sink drain. When putting the ring on my wife's finger at the alter, she noticed. She's a Virgo. They notice everything. She was really good about it. The pawn shop replaced them for a small fee. Lesson learned, NEVER clean rings with drain open. We've been married 50 yrs now.   On another subject, I'm really excited. Just got off of phone with my insurance company. I found an LGBTQ doctor in network. Adam Houghton, in Bloomington, Illinois. Only 30 miles from my house. My insur. co. set him up as my primary care physician while I was on the phone. I can go to him after 3rd of nxt. month. I'm jumping for joy!

      Yes I want a B as well.  But I’m barely moving at this point.  When I take my measurements and look at a size chart I am a D. Ha hai couldn't fill an A   bones    willow  
    • KathyLauren
      I hear you.  Mine are only "A"s.  Almost.  "B"s would be so much better.  At least they would be bigger than my stomach. 🙃  After four years, I guess they are all I am going to get.

      Never played a lot of that. I own a copy, but my group didn't really gel with White Wolf rules. Except maybe Street Fighter. White Wolf writes (or at least wrote, I haven't checked out their products in years) pretty good flavor text.   Hugs!

      That would drive me nuts. The first place I feel the cold is my breasts. Cold air hits my skin and I'm all, "Ahh! My boobs!" I forget how early you are into the process, but every little thing bothered them in the beginning. I used hot compresses to get them to relax. They're better now (at, what? 36 months?), but they're still really sensitive.   You're probably OK, but I'd ask my Endo or my PCP (if they're in the loop) just to be sure. You don't want to take chances with your breasts.   Hugs!
