Pressure Mounts To Curtail Intersex Surgery

I'm glad that awareness seems to be picking up. Such surgeries seem like flipping a coin and hoping it comes up right, when you consider that gender isn't even determined down there.

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

I have IS friends, and seem to have only the ones who are unhappy with what happened to them as children.  Needless to say they are strong advocates for not doing surgery until the child themselves can take part in the decision and has had time to find which of three directions to go.  One direction they strongly advocate is the direction of staying IS, and being accepted as they are.  I for one am glad they want that option.

      I have watched Rose and Blair.  I am subscribed to Blair, although I seldom watch her now.  What I have seen lately seems more like a tabloid.  She seems to want to stir up controversy to get hits.  But still, she is kinda cute, if young.  I do follow Natalie though.  I began my transition around the same time, so there was that.  And her content is pretty good if lengthly.  And yes, she is gorgeous as well.

      I don't always agree with Blair White, I'm fact I don't agree with most of what she says. I just think she is so beautiful and would love to look even half as good as she does.

      Oh, you know what you need to do sweetie.

      Oh, wow, those are awesome! I only do clear on my fingers, but I like to go loud and pretty on my toenails because I can just cover them with socks when I need to. But shoot, I already have so much polish as it is...Oh, what to do...

      The article raises perhaps the most important part. Just because you're trans, doesn't mean you're a gender binary. I think more people could benefit from that brain nugget.   Hugs!

      A good article on the issues facing the parents of transgender kids.    https://news.yahoo.com/parents-of-transgender-kids-take-issue-with-simplistic-portrayal-of-issue-100002879.html

      I used to watch Blair and Rose and agree with Maid in Bedlam. It's also kinda annoying when they throw a political angle into everything. I love Contrapoints (she drinks too much, but is georgeous!) and her exploration of ideas, but when she gets political and start's telling people how to vote. I think that's an abuse of power.   I have never really followed the same political party between elections (here in the UK). I may not agree with all the policies from one particular party, but make an educated decision to pick the best bits of policy that best suits my lifestyle and opinions. And all opinions are an evoloution of ideas that need exploring. My wife votes differently to me, and opinion with respect is the spice of life and what debates and conversation are made for xx.

      Wow! Thank you. Your progress is much further than mine. I'm just over 12 months into social transition and expect to start Hormones in around eight months if all goes to plan, its not easy here in the UK. The thing that always held me back the most was believing I was a freak or a "Shouldn't have been" a mistake. It took me three years of counselling to admit, that maybe I'm not such a bad person and I do deserve and have a right to live and be the person I want to be. The only reason I opened up in the end was when my own counsellor admitted that our stories were so very similar and she completely understood my thought processes and decision making. There are more of us out there, and I hope the world is changing for the better. Children, shouldn't go through what we did.

      My new voice therapist is about an hour away and they do telemed appts. It's not ideal but better than nothing. Sorry your insurance won't help with it. Have you found anything useful on YouTube? I tried that first and it was too confusing and not very comprehensive, just a mash up of random tricks to try and that isn't very helpful for me.   That's really interesting, I too always thought my voice wasn't masculine enough when I was trying to be that way. I know a lot of it has to do with the words I use and how I say things.
