I was just wondering if you were going to wear shoes to the doctor.

Sh...oos? What are sh...oos? 😆

 

Of course, but they're going to have to be my snow runners. I'll take a last image before heading out the door tomorrow to prove it. lol.

 

Thanks for the compliment as well. 😊

Good morning and thank you for sharing your clothing options with us. I'm with @Vanessa Michelle on this thread, and can't wait until my closet is full of women's wear. @Teri Anne thank you for encouraging patience, it helps.

There is no reason to rush and when you feel the time is right then go for it. It's a decision that only you can make.

What I will say is the day you decide to venture out you will wonder what took you so long LOL

Going after some firewood today, so it will be bibs, boots, and lots of warm stuff.

Just so you all know, I did wear shoes today. Well, my snow boots. See image below. After my appointment I went grocery shopping, still dressed up, went to the lawyer's to sign a revision to the divorce agreement and then went to the new thrift shop in town where I was boring and only bought a fabric belt so I can get rid of my leather one.

 

I can't express how liberating and gratifying it was to just get out there as myself. I was so happy. But now I have to get ready for work and don the boy clothes, but this too shall eventually change.

So glad you had the opportunity to get out and be yourself.

The ladies in the thrift store I go to all the time know me by name and treat me like any other female.

Come to think of it I don't think any of them know I was born male.

Thats because I never felt the need to tell them otherwise.

Being trans is hard enough and I made a decision years ago not to mention it and demand they accept me like some trans people do.

One quick way to start trouble for yourself is demand things from people. Just walk in do your business and be friendly.

@Niamhooh those boots!!!!

Speaking of boots. I had some time to kill yesterday and just happened to be next to a DSW and found these on the clearance rack.  I promised my wife to hold off on more shoes until our finances catch up a bit and it was VERY hard to not walk on out with these for only $48.  Not often you find inexpensive size 12 boots that fit well and look good.  I was a good girl though ;'(

Oh hey @Drayse! I just bought a pair of waterproof boots for snow-stuff myself. Naturally they'll arrive well after the snow hits tonight.

 

@Bri2020, I like those boots too! That's a nice heel too. I want some. I guarantee they don't come in size Sasquatch, but I'd definitely wear those.

 

@Teri Anne, I completely agree. I don't feel the need to stuff being trans down anybody's throat. I'll wear my flag mask to the gym occasionally, but allies are allowed to wear the colors too. It honestly never occurred to me to be in anybody's face about it. I'm trans. I'm trying to live my best life. I am a skinny bitch (seriously, I'm built like a popsicle stick) and none of it involves spectators.

 

Hugs!

Bri I would jump on those boots they are too cute.The heel is perfect for me.

Jackie the way I look at it me being trans is my business and not some sort of  thing I have to tell anyone. Oh sure some people figure it out  but by that time its a moot point.

I understand some feel the need to tell everyone they know but sometimes that causes more problems.

Absolutely love them. I think I might have prayed for forgiveness and got them anyway!

Thanks.... Now I think I need another pair of boots. Actually, I know I do. I’m still hung up on high heel hiking boots. 


I just don’t understand why some people have such a strong need to make sure everyone knows they’re trans when they would probably pass if they kept their mouth shut about it. I just want to blend in and be treated the same as other women, not special. But that’s me.

Blending thats the key word in the whole thing IMO.

I think the younger crowd just wants to stand out or prove a point or something. I think they put too much emphasis on identity.

I was talking to a young trans girl at a PRIDE event and she commented on my attire being too plain and I told her I didn't know being trans was a competition and that I wasn't trying to impress anyone..

Whelp, the youngest trans-girl I know personally is 27 and she's not like that at all. She's like me; perfectly content to live her life as a woman. Well, and maybe a little, "And find some flattering clothes that fit." Cis-women deal with that too though.

 

Which brings us back to the boots. Why can't I find those in a 13? Why!?!?

 

Hugs!

I think non passing trans are great and probably normalize trans and even non passing cis people.

Teri Anne

I think just being you passing or non passing is fine.

As long as you are happy and living your life the way you want.

I just got my new water-proof winter slip-ons! Glee! Now I'm much less likely to break my neck while shoveling snow.

 

Hugs!

      @Kathy2020 same here. I love your suggestion about birthday, affirmation, confirmation. 
    • Shay
      The day before my court hearing to change my name I was a bit nervous and near 5 o'clock as my family came ashore from a trip to Put-In-Bay, Ohio , this sign appeared in the sky and especially being a rainbow I knew the folks above were giving me the thumbs up.    Did anything unusual occur just before you changed your name or if you haven't changed names - have there been any other special signs given to you that you are on the right path?

      Welcome Nikki. I graduated back in the '70s as well, and while my circumstances were a bit different, there are a lot of similarities we share. My heart weeps for what you had to go through and are experiencing now. As everyone has said, there is still hope you can be your true self. Have faith, be strong and keep in mind that everyone on this website is welcoming, accepting and supportive. You are loved. You are special. You will be in my prayers.   Hugs,   Marcie

      Hello Heather Michelle Shay, its so nice to meet you! 😊
    • Shay
      Good conversation - I like the birthday, affirmation and confirmation day concept - no reason we can't mark those days to be extra kind and special to yourself even if no one else is forced to give presents.
    • Kathy2020
      Never underestimate the power of a LBD to make you feel happy, secure, and sexy!!! Your shoes are a good match for it too! 😊
    • MelanieTamara
      Not me. Having adult children flips the table a bit. Not only do I get presents, I require them...kinda like tribute. In fact, I am so ruthless, I even implemented a 100 dollar buy in threshold.
    • Kathy2020
      I'm so glad we are working through the positive side of having multiple birthdays in this thread because I am a big supporter of it too!!! 😆 Presents don't have to come in a box either (except from my sister who thinks its a federal law); a nice dinner out, a spa or massage day, a mani-pedi with my bff, or just getting some positive support from my family & friends are all great gifts! 😊   Getting back to the original topic though... I've been thinking a bit lately about this very topic because I am less than two days away from beginning HRT and starting to get the paperwork sorted out for my name change. I think its all up to the individual, but I'm leaning toward my name change day being my "new" birthday, HRT being my affirmation day, and SRS being my confirmation day. If I can plan things right and have my court hearing for name change on my current birthday though, that would be ideal! I definitely see name change day being super important because that's when you become you legally to everyone no matter what, just like the moment someone put a name to paper when we were fresh out of the box! 😊

      I hope you waited, oh, four weeks in between. You wouldn't want them to catch you double-dipping.   Hugs!
    • Shay
      @AmberM I understand not getting presents - I usually buy things I want - but back rubs - that's another kettle of fish entirely. My daughter is a certified massage therapist but she ain't cheap and being half Polish I go for cheap. Heck when I go for a flu shot, they say it's free so I get back in line and get a second one.
    • Vini
      Also @Jandi not to belabor the hair topic, but I have heard that older mtf trans have an advantage in hrt transition, since they don't have as far to go compare to cis women of the same age.  Since Menopausal women experience hair growth and hair loss, and other hormonal changes.  So there may be many women out there who are balding on top, and their hairdresssers take care of them with wigs, extensions and or styling.  So you may be just be one of the older girls who are attractive in scarfs, berets and wigs.  My one experimental wig length was very enjoyable flowing around my neck and shoulders as you commented once.

      Oh, color me jealous. I am definitely talking to my therapist about perks. ❤️   Hugs!
