I read this on someone's facebook feed this morning. <sputter...> {clean up coffee spill...}

 

"Get some roosters for eggs and raise some bulls for milk. Then you'll see that gender matters. Especially at milking time."
 

So should one of the manliest men be selected to impregnate all the women? Should we castrate the rest?

 

Umm...wow, yea some people are weird simpletons. Yea, gender matters, that's why it matters that I'm not gendered my birth sex of male. Duh. I'll be sure to conveniently align my gender with my birth sex if I ever find myself living as some farmer's poultry/beef livestock.

 

This is why (speaking as a former programmer highly trained in connecting basic processes with their emergent results) I don't go anywhere near "social media". Both the whole business model, and the algorithms, are all fundamentally rooted around deliberately "maximizing user 'engagement'" by deliberately facilitating the emergence of armchair quarterback-led "information silos" and the moderm equivalant of kangaroo-court "voting".

@ElizabethStar can I have your wife talk to mine?

 

I think she'll be more supportive out in the world then she is at home, along that same line of being openly supportive and progressive.

 

So happy for you!

Congratulations @ElizabethStar! That sounds like it went really well! Next up: Clothes shopping with the spouse! Great fun and you can share a dressing room. I mean how ELSE are you going to get that cute dress.

 

Also a little jealous, I'm tall so finding a dress that hits me right can be a little challenging.

 

Hugs!

Morning everyone,

 

I'm out of coffee and drinking hot tea again.

 

My shoulder is killing me from the vaccination this morning. I'm also having some trouble believing what I was told yesterday really happened. As of right now I don't believe she'd share a dressing room with me but who know at this point. I can only hope.

 

So what happens when a chicken can't lay anymore eggs? Is it now less of a chicken? Oh wait, that's usually when it's put down and used for food. I see where they're going with this. It's starting to sound like Logan's Run to me.

@WillowCongrats!  How liberated you must feel.  Keep us posted on the journey.

@ElizabethStarThat's wonderful.  Once you get your wife using proper pronouns/name etc, she's gonna be on a tear when she hears others misgender you!  I can see her shifting from her resentful state in the past to full on vocal ally soon.

 

Kimmy, enjoy your time alone. I would opine that your shouldn't put the burden of explaining your actions/feelings to your family on your wife. Take control of the narrative if you want your side to be told.

Elizabeth it is amazing that so many do not realize this!  From my time attending support groups I believe there are more trans-men than trans-women.  Because of our male centric society, the focus is on us.  I'm glad things are going better at home.

My wife and I finally had our talk. It started this morning, finally and it was calm and rational. It went really good. 

We now have a lot more understanding of each other so for now at least we're good and I really do have her support and she does understand that I am doing this for me.

OMG! she is all for it. She is really pushing to show my family how accepting and supportive she is. Kinda sucks it's not until the end of July.

 

This is wonderful news Liz. I'm really happy for you!

Nah, they just terminated them in Logan's Run. You're thinking Soylent Green.

I think it has more to do with how hard they are to spot. MtF's make much easier targets. Honestly, trans-men are just short, and not always that. I know plenty of short men who aren't trans too.

 

@ElizabethStar, if you're looking for a trans-man for your wife to watch, I subscribe to Jammidodger. He's very wholesome, non-threatening and occasionally records with his partner. He could be a good place for your wife to start if she wants to learn about trans-men.

 

Hugs!

Hey Elizabeth, that's great news about your wife.  I'm so happy for you.

 

On a different subject: Okay, so the rain is just pounding against the side of the house.  I'm thinking I picked an ugly day to go shopping.  On the other hand, any day when I can express my inner woman is a great day.  So, with umbrella in hand, I'm going out in spite of the rain.

Rainy here, but no tornado yet.

Got home this morning from a babysitting gig with my granddaughter.  My daughter is a teacher there and their schedules are crazy massed up with the "in person/remote learning" switch ups.  So I spent a couple of nights in the big city.

I should be getting my 2nd shot next week.  After that I hope I can get out a bit more.  I've been holed up at the house for over a year now.  It's getting old, really old.

@ElizabethStar Great news hearing that your wife is coming around.

@Willow So glad to hear that your wife is supporting you.

 

I am so happy for the good news from you both. I have been feeling down and confused the past two weeks and this news has helped lift my spirits more then I thought it would.

@ElizabethStarI love this passage from your wife, I'm so happy you're working things out with her.

👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

"She out-right told me that I am going to wear cute dress and high heels. So she wants me to be hyper-feminine for a couple days? Try to stop me. She also told me a few things she wants to tell my mother but was using "son" when refering to me, I had to stop her and suggested she uses daughter instead. OMG! she is all for it. She is really pushing to show my family how accepting and supportive she is. Kinda sucks it's not until the end of July.

 

Good morning everyone,

 

My coffee was Hot, black, and strong. Breakfast was scrambled eggs with sausage crumbles.

Today I went to the Dentist

Yeah Jandi,

 

My wife and I bought a small camper so we could take the Grandchildren around to experience National Parks and simple camping life. None of it has taken place because of the COVID Pandemic, our older grandkids are in their middle to late teens and will be to busy with college and new jobs to spend a couple of weeks with us. Our younger grandsons are not able to leave their house until my daughter is comfortable with the national vaccine levels. I really do miss getting out of town and teaching my grandchildren about the wonders of our National Parks.

 

Stay positive, and safe,

Hi,  basically waiting for the severe storms to get here. The longer it takes the worse it may be.  Warm, windy and humid now.  All things that contribute to bad storms around here.

 

@ElizabethStar that’s really good news about your talk with your wife and how it went.  Have fun this summer at the family get together.

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes.  I am looking forward to all the freedom.  I’ve been packing clothes into vacuum bags in between working on bathroom tiles.

Great to hear, Liz. Cute dress and heels.

 

Why can't my wife ask that. Oh, that is right she doesn't understand my need to be female.

 

Finally let my therapist know about the issue I had with the family lately. She called and we talked a little about it. Had my video appointment with my GYN. Everything is going good. Will be doing labs when I go over to my speech appointment tomorrow. She wants to check my E and T levels. Hopefully E is up and T is way down.

Well actually feeling good right now. Even though I haven't heard anything from my wife or son in 24 hours.

Tracker in my new truck has them at our oldest sons.

 

Jackie, just remember, "Soylent  Green is people"

 

LOL.

Well, need to present as female. You're already a woman. Always have been. There was just a mix-up at the factory while you were being assembled.

I understand people taste like pork. I like pork. So, yummy, yummy people.

My wife and I finally had our talk. It started this morning, finally and it was calm and rational. It went really good. Apparently the root cause of our conflict is that I didn't trust her enough to tell her what I was going through. She paralleled my inner struggle to her life-long fight with her weight. We now have a lot more understanding of each other so for now at least we're good and I really do have her support and she does understand that I am doing this for me.

 

We also got our first round of covid shots today. While we we were there the staff used she/her with me without any prompting and my wife didn't argue with them although she used he/him. On the way home she asked me if I had used the ladies or men's room while getting our shots. I replied honestly that I had. I think maybe she didn't understand why until I asked how she thought things would have gone for me if I used the men's room. This lead into me trying to explain all the different genders and what they mean. She had no idea that there are trans-guys too. I'm going to direct her to Jackie's YouTube videos so she can learn more.

 

A couple days ago I told my wife about a conversation I had with my mother. I had asked my mother if I was going to have any problems with her family when I go up there this summer. She said if I tone down my clothing I "should be" OK. Just jeans and a t-shirt like the other girls. I had to explain that I wasn't going to show up in a pair of booty shorts and bikini top. Today my wife decided to give me her opinion on it. She out-right told me that I am going to wear cute dress and high heels. So she wants me to be hyper-feminine for a couple days? Try to stop me. She also told me a few things she wants to tell my mother but was using "son" when refering to me, I had to stop her and suggested she uses daughter instead. OMG! she is all for it. She is really pushing to show my family how accepting and supportive she is. Kinda sucks it's not until the end of July.

 

 

I think that was the biggest problem with my wife. I didn't let her know what I was going through. I'm glad that it's going well for you now.
