Still figuring out where things are and how they work on this site..Wondered why we need for a moderator, almost don’t need to ask. With that I already know of how bad the world could be. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. 

ps my given name at the bottom of these pieces , my chosen name I use ,and so will require others to use as well. fyi V. ✌️

Protection from the outside or from within?

  it seems to be on common ground that we share a more than what is external and a name, It is hard to explain to someone who never knew,,...but 

knowledge is the key to unfetter oppression and ignorance of sight

just my two cents for what that is worth , love as always

My favorite is the ship out on the water. ? Nice work. Posted some of my abstracts to the gallery, when I found out too many pictures posted to the forums isn't good.

Every body needs protection both outside and inside. Some places need more than others. Mods and Admins are the necessary for keeping the grounds together. Everybody is different and comes from different places. Claiming things "Common" still is an assumption and an ideal that generalizes too far from the reality that exists.

I do like your work Vickie and with your permission, can I save the "vase with the flowers"? I do like it a lot.

Dinaki by all means it is an honor for me , I will one up that with this, the heart on the vase is for you. But don’t look at this as if it is from me but as if it is from all of  in your life that you touch. I am just the messenger and the reasons I don’t need to know. love as always. V.

Mx.Drago my most recent piece 2’x3’ acrylic on canvas , I am working up the courage to start a 6’ x7’ peice. Not trying to distract anyone here, or myself really. I put everything on hold , hid all of my distractions out of sight. Deleted myself from every website till I get my life on track. That is why I came here. I am completely lost navigating  this site. Not unlike life, I get lost looking for my car keys. Seriously I am broken by the loss of my bbf and life partner of 30 years. I made a promiss to help myself in his absence, why IDK. It is kind of you to say and all the best to you, love as alwaysV.  as a note I am going to insist on my friends and family to use my chosen name and not my given name.

Why moderators exist?  We are hopefully acting as you servants.  This site like so many are often under attack by those who want to see trans folks return to the closet.  We now read and approve every post from new members but at one point we approved every post before it went up.  For the most part you will hopefully never be disturbed by folks who want a porn site(they are available elsewhere) or by posts filled with hate.

When i first found this site i was amazed.  All i had ever seen before  on the internet was the kind of porn that did little but make me feel dirty for simply being myself.  Being here to help each other find peace with themselves is a miracle.

Hopefully we as mods and admins can help with that.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

Thank you Charlize, I knew why and share the sentiment, I found myself shocked to say the least by comments made by close friends and family on social media sites. Often warning them that even in jest it is a double edged sword ,as well as hurtful and uncalled for to treat anyone with no respect. Now the same people are telling me they are in my corner and that I am loved. I find that hard to believe no matter how much I like too. I tell everyone , look I have been listening for years to you make these nasty and rude comments thinking you were hurting no one. While I sat right across from you. I am not trying to make anyone feel bad or guilty or anything other than “ hey if one person loses their rights then  everyone loses their rights. It maybe trans today the women tomorrow and so on where will it end.?  

 So coming here I hoped to move forward , just a note but I have been in counseling for like forever dealing with PTS and ever other issue before dealing with gender. It made no sense to put the cart before the horse, yes my gender is important but thinking oh if I change that everything will be great. It simply doesn’t work that way. I wish it did for everyones sake. I apologize for the long winded comment and thank you for taking the time to reply. V.

Hi Vickie

Loved the art. 

Perhaps those close friends and family will come around eventually. Yes it does hurt.

Many times it is just thoughtlessness before making a comment. Hopefully it will resolve itself in time.

Wish you all the best.

Carrie thank you dear I believe it will, sometimes we need to make a few mistakes before we learn. I have two rules  
Rule #1 sometimes people make a bad choice

Rule #2 you can’t change rule #1

      A few weeks into HRT and I just knew what I experienced and felt was a much MUCH better outcome than alternative. There is absolutely no way I would want or even consider going back of my own free will. Whatever future holds it will be another journey forward 🙂

      Although I have an MSW and was once an LGSW on track for LICSW, I abandoned that path. I still work at the same agency, just in a different role. I was placed at a community mental health clinic for my internship and they hired me after.

      @ElizabethStar @KymmieL @Lexa83   Liz I think that is great the progress made at your wife’s birthday.  I thought my wife and I were moving in that direction too.  Signs and conversations were seeming to go in that direction.  Then this weekend hit.  First, she got upset because I changed for bed in front of her.  Then Saturday more SHTF.  I’ll never be ok, I’ve told you that!  I can’t look at you anymore.  And more.  This continued Sunday when I told her I wasn’t going to church.  We talked a lot on Sunday and today.  Things are better but this was my worst weekend in a long time.  Depression. Crying, fighting...  the whole gambit.   She did apologize.  I said it would be better for me if she didn’t suggest she was doing better about me and then explode.  She said sometimes she thought it be easier if I was full time but I pointed out I wasn’t because she didn’t want me out full time.   very difficult time.   Willow

      I have to drive 5hrs for everything trans---but I have found this gal locally who does fantastic electrolysis and she is fast!  She knows all the trans people, which she is quite protective of and that means I am also safe.   I have this grey-white beard hair too.   She is just a local gal that got a degree and understands how the world turns here.   She also is serving as my therapist, ha ha! My real one is 5+ hrs away and doesn't understand rural people that well.     Maybe you can talk the laser person into getting certified for electrolysis.   It is good money.      ---WILLOW---

      Hi Susan,    thank you so much for you kind words. My older daughter recently helped Shannon do her makeup and dressed her up in some of her cloths and they took pictures. She tried to get her to come show me but maybe in time and with her support.  I will take your advise and see if Chloe will talk with a councillor with me and try and give her some support.  Shannon has always been.... I don’t know how to describe it.... down and out? Chloe showed me a pic of her with her makeup and she was just beaming. I have never seen him like.  Thanks  Pumela

      @Shay no I have the Years of T damage 😂 that is a FaceApp feminized picture of me, I am 61 years old and have had the nickname of Lurch for years. I am just happy to be on the correct path now.
    • Shay
      Even one step better than none.
    • Shay
      And luckily you are young enough to not have to years of T damage. You are going to be lovely - mark my words.

      Even though not an MSW, I have many friends in the Trans community who are MSW and MFT counselors.  To some degree it depends on where your are and where you are applying.  Places like California  have requirements that they must consider you if you are Trans. Thus I do know people getting the jobs.  Call your local LGBTQ Center and see if they know of Trans Accepting places you can get a job, some have clinics that do take on interns, who are snapped up by other places.  it may not be the highest paid, but it will take care of licensing requirements. Location Location Location!!  Planned Parenthood who has family counseling services and is now having clinics for Trans people, and other Service Organizations would also be possibilities where I know people are getting jobs, especially as this pandemic thing is rolling.

      @HollyNoel hang in there - I have been doing electrolysis for about 7 months locally (thank god) but I understand that laser doesn't work (I'm gray as well) and I really am horrible at shaving and it is driving me crazy - BUT - you will find someway, somehow to get it done - I have faith - GROUPON (to get deals) and if you have to drive - you can practice Voice Feminization exercises during the trip or emotion expansion or podcasts about LGBTQ+ topics.
    • BillieB
      Thank you @Shay I am feeling so happy right now! Virtual hugs until real ones can be given.      
    • Shay
      Congratulations - it's a big step and I am proud of you. HUGS

      Have you tried therapists in your area to see if there is available space with them? My therapist has had to turn away patients. I figure Psychology Today listings might also help and networking via LinkedIn perhaps? You've probably tried those routes but it's the best I can come up with for you to try.

      @Willow Farmer - hurray Christians who actually are living by the example of Jesus.
