When I clicked on that link it showed me an ad first about an "innovative bra" that looked like nothing more than pieces of rubber placed over the nipples.

 

I have two pairs of those. They're sticky rubber under cloth. I wouldn't wear them to go jogging or anything, but they do OK for keeping the girls "up and forward."

 

Hugs!

The link works for me, it goes directly to Boy George's video titled Yes We Can

 

I swear, I did  not sent any "funny" pictures

I know. The ad was inserted by YouTube. I was just commenting because I thought the bra was a bit strange.

Thank you for letting know that, for a moment I got very much displeased with the link I said. I shall need to be more cautious next time sending music links. Again, I apologize Dana!

I bought bras online recently so I guess that's where the cookies came from.

Years ago, when I was coming to terms with who I am, i would describe that moment in the mirror ... that moment when you are dressed as your true self and you look deep into the eyes reflected back at you ... and your heart booms inside your chest as if it will break in two ...and, instead of seeing the man looking back, there was someone else ... someone you kept hidden for so long.... and i would describe that feeling, that moment as ...

 

... "home" ...

 

My heart was beating and I was finally "home".

 

In Peter Gabriel's Solsbury Hill an eagle (transition) offers to comes to take him "home". And if listen to the song as a song about wrestling with the idea of transition, I dare you to try and not to cry.

 

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing, stretching every nerve
Had to listen, had no choice
I did not believe the information
Just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Son", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"
To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
'Til I thought of what I'll say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Hey", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"
(Hey, back home)
When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Hey", I said, "you can keep my things, they've come to take me home"

one of my favorite artists and one of my favorite songs.  wow! you are right-i did cry. the song has new meaning for me now.  didn't Peter use facial paint and odd costumes when he first started performing?  can i just add that when my heart was going boom boom boom-i was so happy at what i saw in the mirror.

Yes Peter Gabriel did wear costumes when he performed.  I believe I read his wife made many of them.  

 

This is a wonderful song.  Interestingly only in the first chorus "grab your things, I've come to take you home" does he say "Son."  After that its "Hey" leaving one to figure out who is he is now.

Wow, when you're right, you're right!

Maybe a little bit of a stretch to say it can be "about" trans, but I still think this one is very fitting here:

 

 

I have trouble not tearing up whenever I listen to that, no matter what it is I'm going through. (It's also one of my absolute favorites to play in Rock Band on both voice and guitar.) That "grab your things, I've come to take you home" line in Solsbury Hill with its comforting "being watched over" theme is what reminded me of this one. Oh man, now my waterworks are really going!

 

And, of course, I've mentioned it probably too many times already, but Bon Jovi's It's My Life.

Here's something I bet no one expected to come across here!

 

But it's totes soups adorbs, and gosh darn it, it has a good underlying message that's appropriate for us all!

have you heard this one; "Jim the Jinn" from The Truth about Charlie  music from the motion picture. It has some interesting lyrics.  My favorite is-"Daddy was just a girl in disguise."  It applies for MtF or FtM.

@Ann W I agree with you Joni Mitchell comments - I love her voice and talent - abosultely love Ladies of the Canyon and Blue - and listen a lot when I am wanting to find comfort.....

      @VidanjaliWhen it comes to employment, follow your inner guidance. You know when it is is time to move on and it can be such a rewarding time when choose to move on.   I would get some legal advice about your grievances and how to document them. The HR department is there to protect the organization more so than the employee. A sympathetic HR employee may support you but HR is NOT your advocate. Whether you intend it or not, leaving an organization may burn bridges. That is part of life. You have succeeded in your employment because of your efforts and what you bring much more so than anything the employer provides. When it comes to jobs, the only thing I regret was not leaving as soon as I knew it was time.

      @VidanjaliI'm not certain what changed from what I was originally told. My new employer is contracted to providing security services for a wide range of companies. My first few days last week were with the HR manager at the local branch office. She originally said she wasn't sure if I could have Hannah on my badge. She subsequently informed me that I could. When I got my ID photo taken yesterday on site, I was told I had to wait until legal name change. I don't know if it's an internal company about face, a policy of the host company, or what. I am going to try to find out what.

      Way to go, @Vidanjali. I support your choice. When I quit my last full-time job long ago, it was very scary. But looking back, it was the best thing I ever did. I stood up for myself and left what people said was a secure job. It also was toxic and abusive (not for your reasons) and it took the right few friends to support my change and to work towards a creative direction for my life. I know you're a fine writer and we have a lot of support here on TgP. Good luck. Believe in yourself. God's speed. —  Davie

      Ooh, I love this one, too!     Thanks for saying so! And for the advice!

      Coming out is a cathartic experience. For me, it really reduced a lot of built-up stress and worry. May you find clarity in expressing all the things you wish to say. This is an important milestone, but it's also a point that you are soon past, and then other important things will be there for the two of you to work on, hopefully together.   As @Susan R mentioned, may you have a distraction-free evening to begin this new chapter in your lives.   Hugs and reassurance,   Astrid

      Luck sweetie! May he be understanding and happy to come on this journey with you, no matter where it may lead.   Hugs!

      Update to everyone:    I'll be coming out to my husband once he gets home from work. I cant hide from him anymore, i feel too guilty. I've had the worst anxiety I've ever felt today. I keep crying and shaking and it just feels awful. I've never felt more afraid in my life. Wish me luck.

      It is sad to hear of  Alan Price's death. His death made me think about one of my best friends from college who has also passed. She was a huge fan of Yes and Rick Wakeman. I'm listening to a few song with my happiest memories, I miss her.        
    • Mx.Drago
      I don't feel like I'm watching, more getting carried away by the tide that is life. Wish I could enjoy it more. Sadly there was never a guarantee things would work out nicely.

      @Heather Shaymy heart hurts reading this. I hope good news and blessings head your way. ❤️

      Can you do some sort of harm reduction if you bind for years , the reason am I asking i am unsure if i can have Surgery due to the fact ill not  get approved for it?
    • Kelly2509
      @WillbeAlice that's great news!  Glad it has been going well!  Sounds like they did a good job of helping you come up with a plan of attack as well and that's nice to hear!  Kudos!   I've been back to the office a few times and generally everyone has been fine over the last month.  Some people have a hard time remembering my correct name (which is now legal BTW) and once in a while I'll get misgendered but they have been honest mistakes so I haven't pushed back too hard.  There are still the couple people who seem to really avoid me now, but honestly that's OK.

      Thanks to Jeanette West's Electrolysis Report.  I just started reading through it and I'm learning a lot.  Almost even feeling a lot.  The mind is a terrible thing : )

      Hi Everyone, I apologize if I'm repeating a topic.  I will work my way through the topic posts.  But I was wondering if anyone has advice on Pre op electrolysis for vaginoplasty?  Pain management ?  Would it be less painful after an orchiectomy ?  How many sessions did it take ?  I heard about numbing cream.  And it could take a year to be ready for surgery ?  Thank you, Vini
    • Vini
      Lots of good music ideas, girls!  I may be repeating myself, but classic rock was my escape in my previous life form, so its hard to listen to without bad memories.  Then I heard that Diane Keeton doesn't listen to much music either because of the memories.  But some how, I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys grabbed me today, then the Theme from Out of Africa, Go figure. Thanks, Vini
