May the poor girl rest in peace. I had a 97 with low miles also. It sat in a garage for 3 years.  Gave it to my stepdaughter, She's still driving it.

Sorry girls, I still love cars.

Hey there @Bobbie Scott,

 

I've said this to @jae bear on several occasions. Girls can be MOTOR HEADS, Race Team Leaders, and even Girly Girls can be Motor Heads.

 

Have you hugged an engine today?

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Liquid motivation came in cold form today. (Mt Dew) a little nervous today because I’m heading with the family down to Illinois to surprise both of the boys grandpas for their birthday. This will be the first time I’ve fully presented to any family.

@KymmieL Sorry to hear about your wheels. Hopefully the salvage is good.

 

@JustineM Good luck, hope it goes well.

 

Got my hair done last week, first time with a traditionally fem style. Went with a chin length bob, that really works with my natural curls. What an awesome and amazingly affirming experience it was. My stylist was so chill and she took great of me. Can't wait until my next appointment already.

 

For me, work has no updated my contact details in all systems except payroll. My name change is off to the government. Probably a little more than a month before I hear back and can get my new birth certificate and name change form and complete the updates at work. With my contact details changed in most systems, word is starting to spread around a little faster. Still nothing but support from those who have reached out and those I have interacted with.

Trying to book an appointment for tomorrow to get my ear lobes pierced. Did some online retail therapy earlier in the week, now waiting for the first installments to my fall wardrobe to arrive.

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful day, stay safe! Hugs!

Is it weird that I pictured that as a Scooby-Doo style reveal? You rip the rubber mask off and, "Ah ha! It was Justine all along and she would have gotten away with it too if not for you meddling kids!"

 

Either way, best of luck. May you find only acceptance and love!

 

Hugs!

Yes, I used to race against some fierce women, many of whom knew their cars inside out.

wow, I knew my rabbit ears were burning! Yes indeed, I know plenty of women, both CIS gender and trans that love cars, motorcycles, mechanical things in general and are just gearheads galore! Nothing like the site of a Chrysler 400 in.³ block on your engine  stand stuffed with a forged 440 crank turned down to fit the mains with flat top Keith black pistons decked .005” below the top ready to stuff into your 1969 Dodge Charger... that’s 451 in.³ for all those boys out there who didn’t  know how to do the math! I love baffling them with that combo as they’ve never quite heard of it before...  But I usually get a marriage proposal right after baffling them!

@jae bear @Jani what what what.... Jae Bear plays guitar. Jani you should have said something. She needs to add some tracks to our stuff. GIRL POWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The funny thing is I used to love anything that was loud fast and had wheels or tracks. Now I can’t even stand them but, then doing it 7 days a week burns you out. Half of the time it’s not the piece of equipment it is the operator or the driver that I can’t stand especially when you hear that costs money and can you have it fixed in 5 minutes lol. Oh well such is life haha

Doing anything for a long time and we get subject to burn out.  Look at it this way, those bad operators provided work for you which you used to live and support yourself.

@KymmieL good luck!

 

thanks for the kind words. Actually big changes are under way for me. Interviewed for a new position in an ICU in Raleigh NC. They offered, so looks like end of November I’ll be moving. Now just to find people to pack 90% of my house!

Oh my goddess! This went so well! My biological family have all said I look so much happier. They even gave me a new real hair wig! Flying on cloud 9 3/4 right now.  Thank you ladies for all the kind words.

Why would you? Biker chicks... girl mechanics... just wow. Always been attracted to both groups.

 

If you look up "My Metal Family" on YouTube... watch the intro. I would have reacted exactly the same way.

Omergerd ... Jackie I love Mopar.

This made my morning thank you.

We didn't get any big block cars here so we had to make do with LAs, still a 318 done right makes 330hp 😉

I'm still wondering how or if my car friends will accept my changes.

Though I'm coming to the realisation that it shouldn't matter. I'll be me and that will be that.

Hugs

      Thanks Jackie C. I'll do a little research and check in with her about whether she can handle it.

      I came out last week at a thrift shop where I'm the assistant manager.  Saturdays are our busiest day.  This is what I wore today.  It felt so good to just be myself at work!

      Thank you @Vidanjali  You've just added fuel to the fire lol.  I will get there one day.

      Hesitating to be out & proud as nonbinary because it almost always requires so much explanation. Tempering dysphoria induced by being gendered binary requires energy expenditure, and having to explain myself does too. Individually being a conduit to challenge others to change the paradigm of their thinking about gender (let alone pronouns) seems an uncomfortable role for myself; I imagine myself a burden to others in that case. While I'm an ally and activist for the disenfranchised in general, I'm not comfortable being so for myself, personally.

      I enjoyed reading this poem, @Becoming Diana..   I was very lucky to be able to visit Paris in 2018. I was there for 2 1/2 days en route to Central Europe. Paris is all that. Believe the hype. The first day I was there, I thought I'd hyperventilate because everywhere I cast my gaze made me gasp. I had to deliberately slow my breathing because I felt so exhilarated to be there - I could easily see myself staying there indefinitely, and I am not usually a city person. It just felt so lovely and natural to be there. Now, I dream of returning some day. I hope your dream to visit Paris will come true for you.

      Loving all the autumn looks, friends! 😍☺️ Here in South Florida, autumn means it's in the mid to high 80s occasionally, lol. I love the heat, though.

      Hi @Xrystiana ! Nice to meet you 🤗 
    • Vidanjali
      Hi @MaybeImSkylar . As Jackie said, let what makes you comfortable guide you. While having a clearly defined label for your identity can be validating and comforting, don't beat yourself up if it's not currently clear to you. There are endless varieties of gender and sexual identity, and very often it's more nuanced than homo vs hetero, or male vs female. I, for one, salute you - whoever you are - you are valid, beautiful, and loveable.    The confusion you speak of is relatable, and you're not alone. I identify as asexual, panromantic, and trans nonbinary. It took many painful years to come to the clarity I have at present (and no one ever reaches a point where personal self-discovery is complete). To give you an idea, I neither identify as female nor male. My birth certificate says female. I feel my personality is some combination of the two plus something other than either, but it's a homogeneous mix. So, it's not like I can separate the two and say in this instance I'm more female and in another, I'm more male. I'm just me all the time, and whereas I used to feel frightened and disgusted with myself, I have become much more accepting. Before I became more accepting, I used to wear men's clothes and preferred them, but hated myself for it. Then, I began to present very femme, but it felt exhausting, like I was always being judged. I've never had sexual attraction for anyone in what most people would consider a natural manner. I've experienced romantic feelings for people of a variety of genders. I am married to a cis man, and although I don't desire him sexually, the attraction I feel for him seems to me more like how gay men enjoy men rather than how hetero women enjoy men. But, I'm not a man, nor am I sexual, so I could not say for sure - it's just an instinctual notion I have.    So, as you can see, you're not alone in not having a clearly defined experience of your gender and sexuality. Try your best to learn to love yourself in every instance. Be comfortable. Celebrate you. Overcome perceived expectations. Have fun. And keep writing to us here - there are great friends to be had. I wish you the best.

      I'm pretty sure that covers a lot of us on some level. We'd just like to get on with our lives, be recognized as our actual gender and have rights. I mean that's the whole "agenda."   As for the rest of it, in my opinion anyway, if you wait for the perfect moment you'll wait for the rest of your life. Bite the bullet. Tell who you need to tell and get on with it. They'll accept you or they won't. That is utterly out of your control. If they don't accept you, that's on them, not you.   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      There's nothing wrong with being a women who presents in a more masculine manner. My aunt did it and we all loved her. By the same token, there are some lovely non-binary people here and out in the world who don't especially feel like either binary gender. I would advise you to dress how you feel comfortable.   Now, I have no earthly idea what the environment in Cyprus is like for the LGBTQ+ community, (Though my quick internet search says the EU enforces a certain level of rights) but it seems like you should be OK presenting in a manner that doesn't fit the gender binary, which is fantastic. So... experiment. Find out what makes you feel the most like you. Maybe not your whole wardrobe at once, but pick out things and looks that make you feel the most like yourself. Like I said, masculine lesbians exist. Non-binary people exist. You exist. Try to become the very best you that you can be. You absolutely deserve to be comfortable in your own skin.   So, on to the sex talk: Toys exist. If you find you want to add something "extra" to please a woman, that's completely a thing you can buy at your local shop. Personally, I don't find it that appealing but I have friends who do. What makes you happy in the bedroom is a special part of you. Mechanically... my metaphorical hat is off to your heterosexual lovers if you consistently achieved simultaneous climax. My spouse and I generally take turns. You may find that in a more typical lesbian lovemaking session the foreplay goes on for longer than you might be used to with a male partner. Of course I don't know your male partners, but the average for lesbians is clocked at between one and two hours which lines up pretty neatly with my personal experience. Again, take your time with your partners and figure out what you're into. Communication is key. Presumably you know what you like so share that with your partner and have a blast getting to know each other's bodies.   Hugs!

      Your doctor's approach is fine. They start low, do blood tests and repeat until your daughter's bloodwork shows estrogen and testosterone levels in the proper range. This is very much a slow and steady sort of thing. Think of it like having puberty again. That wasn't over in a day and your doctor doesn't want to accidentally hurt her with too high of a dose. The basic pattern is two months. Test. Adjust dose. Repeat until she hits her targets. There's no one-size-fits-all dosage so your daughter's doctor has to be careful to feel out what's right for her.   As for electrolysis. If she wants it, I'd say go for it. You need to have hairs of a certain length which might cause her dysphoria while she's letting it grow out, but in the long run it's the only truly permanent solution.   Hugs!

      Hi all, so sorry I haven't replied sooner. Just got busy and forgot to check back. @Kelly2509, she was started on a very low patch dose, though it has been increased. I'm still wondering if we should maybe find a more proactive doctor, though of course the present circumstances make everything more complicated.   I didn't know facial hair wasn't affected by HRT!  I'm not sure she knows either. Would it make sense to take her for electrolysis? (Ironically, I think she got hairiness from me, my husband didn't have any real facial hair til he was in his thirties, lol.)

      Hello,  (Excuse my English, is not my first language ) I am someone who is still in the questioning situation about my sexuality and gender identity. And I sort of need help and quidance. Its a bit of a big story but I will try to keep it brief.    I was born as a female and only twice in my life have question my gender identity and right now is that second time. I happend before,during and after my first girlfriend.  She is a transwoman pre-op and she is my first sexual expirience with the same sex. I have had sex with her as the switch position and the times I was the top I enjoyed it but there was something missing. This is a fear I had before I started exploring with women or at least the homosexual side of me; meaning sleeping with the same sex and I dont get actually stimulated by being the giver or climax at the same time as it is with heterosexual sex. Which I feel is the same case I have rn, I enjoyed it and it was exciting being with a woman but there was something missing. I know there are other ways but what if it doesnt work? On some point I felt like I wanted a man's reprotactive system so i can enjoy sleeping with women.    There is this urge that I want this to work and I am scared what is I am poser after all. BUT here is the thing, I dont only feel like I want to be "masculine" only in sex. I recently found myself being keen on more baggy clothes and androgynous eventho in the past I hated it and made me feel ugly. I felt is a girl trying so hard to look like a man even I behaved,dressed, acted more "feminen" for the opposite sex to be accepted , it felt too much. It was exhausting, like who am I?   I am attaching a file that my friend send me this year about heterosexuality and the steryotypes within it and help understand about being a lesbian.    Right now I feel like I am lost, thinking of trasitioning into a man doesn't seem appealing in the sense of having a male reproductive system, I still want to own what I have but be masculine but I dont feel feminen, this is so confusing.  Also thinking about men naked seem even more unattractive than before, but I feel like a man with nothing down there seem more appealing? I don't know if this makes sense, but I feel like I am mad or I am a Karen at the end of the day which makes me so sad and upset.   I hope you enjoy my ted talk and the attached file    https://www.docdroid.net/N46Ea3o/copy-of-am-i-a-lesbian-masterdoc-pdf#page=2

      I haven't logged in in quite a while, but I've been having some nice highs and feeling confident in my transition, to having low lows, and I don't know if this has to do with dysphoria fluctuating. As an update, I moved to the city from my small town and I'm completely stealth in college aside from a couple instructors. When I go out, I'd say I pass nearly 99% of the time, though there are times when I get 'imposter syndrome' and I'm "not really trans", or "not a real man". I do have an appointment with my therapist in a couple weeks and a new appointment with a gender clinic to help me with the legal and medical process which was cancelled and then re-booked.    Regarding my transition process, I'm at the point where I'd like to get my legal documents changed first, but I'm also on a time limit because I'd like to get them changed before I start looking for a job. The thing that makes me stop and hesitate is in regards to my family. I came out to my family October 2020 (aside from my brother and sister-in-law). Last time I went to visit my parents, it seemed like they took a step backwards and wouldn't refer to me as 'Ryan' or he/him for the couple days while I was there (they've been supportive of me since I came out and my mom had even baked pride cupcakes during Trans Day of Visibility last year). When I came out to them I didn't mention too much about past childhood thoughts or desires of wanting to be a boy, which I'm considering sending them a 'timeline' of what I remember from my childhood and when I had each thought, or what I wanted to do at that age. All that being said, I'm not 'out and proud' about my trans identity and I would prefer to live as a cis-passing man telling people about my trans identity on a need-to-know basis (doctors, etc).    I feel that my hesitation comes from family and because I'm not out to my brother and sister-in-law, I should tell them before starting anything and make sure my parents are supportive of my decision to transition. I also don't know how my brother and sister-in-law will react, I don't think my sister-in-law will be too surprised honestly, I'm more so worried about my brother.
