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.

      Sheena, you are one of the sanest people I know. You've managed to keep your sanity and positive outlook despite the many challenges you've faced. To me, that takes courage, strength of character and a lot more. God bless you, girl.
    • Marcie Jensen
      I agree about the affirmation. And, listen to your inner voice Michelle.

      I'm sorry you went through that. The people--and I use the term "people" loosely--who said that clearly have no understanding of Justification or of Salvation.  It also appears they have forgotten the teachings of judge not, lest you be judged and parable of the beam in your own eye. (Both found in Matthew 7 as part of the Sermon on the Mount.)    One of the reasons I became a Calvinist is because he points out that humanity is inherently depraved in how they/we view others. It's a difficult thing to accept, but when I see stuff like this, I begin to understand why it is that Jesus wept.   And good for you for not going back to that particular place.

      You nailed it. I don’t care so much that I pass for other people as much myself. I can’t tell you the amount of times family asked me why I stare at the mirror. It’s because I have no clue who that guy in the mirror is.

      I'm making an attempt to keep this PG, but it's a difficult subject to scratch with out discussing a Few sexual education items.   I'm getting close to when I make my decision to go on HRT or not, but one of my main concerns is weather or not I'll be able to remain intimate with my wife, we started to experiment with "toys" and I've increased the frequency I perform oral on her to prepare for potential non functioning male parts.   For those who have went through it, are you still able to use your male parts? Achieve orgasm through the old ways? Or have you moved on to butt stuff and prostate Satisfaction to compensate? My wife isn't too into the butt stuff aspect, so it could potentially be an issue down the road if that becomes the main way I can get off. Getting her off is a non issue, but in terms of weather or not I'll still be able to enjoy intimacy with her I was hoping some of you could share your expirience.

      You didn't realize that there were only 10 facts . You didn't notice that commas were used in place of apostrophe's.

      As with most people here I also fell in love with panties at an early age, I remember looking at the old sears catalog, or a victoria secret catalog that would get sent to the house and adoring the beautiful lingerie on the models. Eventually I got curious and checked if my mom owned any of these items, found some satin panties, tried them on and unlocked an inner battle I could never shake off from there.   Long story short after many years of stealing and hiding the shame, getting caught a few times and being bullied by my siblings, I moved out and I started buying my own once I figured out the correct size, still sadly purging some of the cutest lingerie I've ever owned out of shame and embarassment. currently I'm about a Male 38embarrassment. Translated to a womens 16 for most brands, theres still some weird stuff going on with those though. and I wear XL panties, sadly I'm "endowed" which can be a blessing but in terms of what I can wear in women's clothes limits me a bit, lace is fantastic, can't wear it though because I push up against it for a cheese grater type effect. Some Satin lacks stretch so I usually have to size up for that, nylon is awesome. Cotton varies.   My favorite panties for stretch and coverage currently are victoria secrets seemless line, the thong and bikini cuts are amazing, the hipsters work sometimes and I love the way they hug my cheeks but when I fall asleep in them I tend to fall out the sides. I actually was able to go in and try on some pairs on a slower weekday, you have to try them on over your current panties. But it allows you to try all the different cuts and styles avaliable.   I love nylon and satin for fabrics, and although I don't have breasts I have started to incorporate bras into my wardrobe to get used to them for when my breast might develop. The website shein.com has been great for allowing me to explore different styles without breaking the bank. I'm still pretty masculine V shaped so they carry alot of extended sized tops that I've been trying out with much success.

      Meeting with the mediator went well. All should be done by the end of July🤞. And it's filed in the one county (where my wife lives) that has the option of not having to show up in court in person, or even Zoom. Now for the name change.

      Sheena I’m right there with you.   You’re right it is comforting to have someone you feel completely safe with that affirms what you’re feeling inside.   I started buying a few articles of clothing this week and wearing them in private during the day when e regime is gone.  Now I’m researching how to do simple make up.  Yesterday I had a moment when I was in Target buying my first bra where I was so happy to find a cute one that fit me.  For a second this voice said inside of me…..don’t look now but you’re embracing being a woman.
