This is exciting news! Glad that you have such a supportive management team at your workplace. I'm hopeful your wife will be as well, I know she has shared strong feelings about the idea of you wearing skirts or dresses. I suggest wearing leggings underneath in cold weather. p.s. Black is the official wardrobe color for New York City.

 

Since we're on the topic of breast growth, I feel like I'm experiencing modest changes at the four month mark. My doctor emphasized that everyone's bodies will react differently to HRT, and it can take years for full effects to be realized. While I would love for it to be faster, it's wonderful to see them slowly awaken from a lifetime slumber thanks to the estrogen goddess.

 

Also - nice to meet you @nympheanelumbo, hello from your neighbor in NYC!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

And also, welcome.

 

aaaaa!! this made me really happy, thank you! it's a nice change of pace from a  conversation I had with my school counselor. Did you know that parents needed to be notified before changing deadnames off of school websites? It's gonna be rough talk with my mom, but I'll figure something out. Reason why I'm here, actually! ^^ There's a lot of talk about needing a support system, so I joined!

I didn't... but it doesn't surprise me. In most of the states your parents basically own you until you turn 18. It varies by school district though and how they handle trans students. Some will keep it from your parents and use your proper name in school to make you comfortable. Others... not so much.

 

Then again, their hands are probably tied in some places because your LEGAL name is still your legal name and that's attached to all sorts of official stuff until you change it. That's a court procedure and we're back to your parents owning your butt until you turn 18. It's a vicious cycle.

 

Hugs!

yeah! i have to either convince my transphobic mom to approve of the school database name change, or deal with it until I'm 18, which honestly I'm not too sure if I'm capable of doing. She's kind of oblivious to the whole gender thing, so to save myself from feeling miserable, I just stopped trying to get her to understand, since all she knows is yelling and verbal abuse. But, regardless. Toughing it out is my only option, I'm turning eighteen soon in a while, so I'll be fine all things considered. :3

Two (ish) years isn't terrible, true. Just try to make sure you have a plan and a place to stay if she goes full transphobe and kicks you into the street. We don't need any more homeless trans kids (or adults for that matter).

 

Hugs!

I haven't actually thought of my plan, or a place to stay if she actually does. The best I have at the moment is just finishing school, going to a community college, and getting a job as a camgirl, because harassment in an unaccepting conventional workplace scares the living hell out of me, and I'd just rather be fetishized for my identity than harassed for it. Lesser of two evils, I guess.

Just because you turn 18 doesn't mean your Mom will change or make live easier for you if you live under her roof.

Getting your own place then you are really free to be who you are.

In the year 2000 I was driving through Hollywood and saw this skirt in a boutique window on Melrose.  It's the only piece that survived my last purge.  I enjoyed wearing it for group therapy tonight.

Love the outfit and you are looking great in it.

Oof, seeing all of you looking so good is making my head swim. It also makes me realize how far I have to go in my development. Sure, I wear women's clothes around the house, outside, and even occasionally to work.
But you all look so nice doing it!

Bri your  rocking that Black and Orange look.  Lv the haul

 

I use don't give rip about dressing room. I am a woman, buying wn clothing, if a Karen wants to make a fuzz then she can go to men room or RV or behind an ally to try her stuff. 

Sometimes we need to be proud for not just us but for the other TG ( Male or Female) that to afraid and look to us to shown the way

Looking good!

 

Though it's 19F here with a wind chill that's bringing it down to 10F. I got a chill just looking at you. Brr.

 

Hugs!

Yeah Lexi!

Nice legs girl.

 

I know that place a little. 

Was so covered up last time walking through there, looking at all the bodies showing themselves off.

Damn you Cali girls are rockin!  You all are looking great.  Lexi I'm so jealous of your beach access right now (and your confidence).

Ann I love the skirt.  Actually, I love everything about your outfit.

You just have to find your style and be confident. If an outfit makes you feel good, let it show.  I haven't been on HRT for long and it has barely changed my physical appearance. Ann can correct me but I believe the same with her.  Since starting my transition, my mental health has been so good it has made me feel so much more positive about myself and I let that show.  I also care about myself more which has led to better lifestyle and health choices which also helps the confidence.

Between covid and the lack of clothing options in my area, it's hard to develop a style. There's little selection for women 6' or more even though I only weigh in with a body mass of 78 kg.😅

 

But maybe I'll throw something together after work today.

We are only an 1.5" different and same weight. 5' 10.5" There's plenty out there for us. I have two cis women working for me who are taller than me but same build. They have helped me find stuff and I've observed their styles to see what looks good on them ;). Biggest challenge honestly is shoes.  I'ma size 12 US women and finding truly cute shoes is difficult. Poor Jackie is a 13.

Oh wow, well i I'm approximately 12 1/2 - 13 US woman's shoe size myself. 😔

 

Tops are also hard for me. Monkey arms and broad shoulders. And I'm so sick of leopard print. lol.

 

But thanks for the encouragement, your tips are noted. 😊

Today is a pivotal moment in my life. This is the outfit I chose to wear to work today and I didn’t backup clothes.

@ElizabethStarthe pic didn't post 😢  Regardless, proud of you for going for it without a backup! 💪🏻 #yougogirl ❤️

Elizabeth that's a nice outfit!

Like the boots, and the stars!

 

An idea....I would hike that skirt up higher, almost to the ribs.  But that's just my preference...classic women's waist opposed to a highlander kilt look. 

Please don't listen to me if I'm wrong...

 

Most important is how comfortable you feel in it.

 

Good luck with your pivotal point hun.  I'm crossing fingers for your luck and acceptance for who you really are :)

      It's interesting to read this. Apart from the stuffed animals I have the only thing I can think of is my deliberate cultivation of a childlike attitude to learning such that I can learn and accept new ideas more readily; ie I try to avoid blinkered views and similar restrictions which often come with age. In that I have no age bias and fear of appearing childish (in the keeping up appearances sense).   Your last comments on baby talk do remind me of an advert for sweets / candy over here currently which has two policemen in a police car dubbed with childrens voices. People tend to love or hate it. I tend to mimic them and similar but more my sense of humour though.   Tracy

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      This is a one of your colors Linda Marie. Your dress really looks nice with the shoes too. Hard to match outfits that close without a large collection. You can NEVER have too many pairs.😉

      I don’t wanna go back to a mental hospital. That place still terrifies me. Even more bad memories.

      Mostly just the erotic variety that involved a boy being forcibly feminized then diapered and treated like a baby girl lmao. I'm a freak lol. =P

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.
