Thank you. I had a couple tell me that over the day yesterday. Was still having a lot of anxiety for some reason, I’m not really sure why.

You girls all look terrific!  It's so pleasing to see people's confidence evolving over time.

@Bri2020Love that dress!  Kinda makes me want to play Twister on you.

Even though I've only been able to play once in each of the past 2 years, I do have a few golf outfits that I should put to good use in general. Hopefully on the course sometime this year. Looking good.

Top is from Amazon, shorts are a hand-me-up from my daughter. Sandals were never a thing for me during my pretending-I'm-a-guy phase, and I realized today why.  There are no cute sandals for guys.

I just love seeing everyone out there enjoying the clothes they are wearing. @miz miranda That dress was one of my first purchases! I got it in the white with yellow flowers I believe. (I donated it after losing some weight.

@Ann W love that look you're sporting......

@Sally Stoneblush is a good colour on your. I love the simple but femme look there.

 

@christinakristy2021That's a message people near to hear more often. Happy Pride!

 

I ran across this article about swimwear this morning. I think it's awesome that the fashion industry has taken notice of the uniqueness of trying to make a swimsuit that works for trans folks.  Now, it will be interesting to see how many are comfortable with  a "not tucking" look.  For me, that would be triggering as hell. I think it speaks to a trend through. I think younger people are becoming more comfortable with the spectrum of gender vs being binary in thought. They may be less worried or dysphoric about the parts they have vs it being their identity and social perception that is more triggering.  I don't know but if fashion is trying to respond to identity then maybe I'm onto something.  Now we all know that fashion often doesn't reflect the majority of people tastes frequently. They are often trying to push boundaries. This is certainly doing that. https://chromat.co/ 559239423_ScreenShot2022-06-15at8_02_27AM.thumb.png.385114bea6b739267b7d2e83721387ab.png

It's funny, clothes were always something I just tolerated (because y'know, cold weather and social requirements). A "yes" purchase was the rare occasion I'd find something I actually didn't outright hate. I never imagined clothes could be something I could actually like! I guess that's the difference when you finally start shopping in the right section!

I've come across those, too. And yes, I think the direction these things are going with the younger generations is fantastic.

You all look happy and amazing, I'm more than a touch jealous!

 

  So many things I want to wear but I'm jacked and have chicken legs.

 

I swear I'm not such a whiney thing in real life but this is the only place I have or feel safe to kavetch.  

 

much luv

The pink skirt I got a few weeks ago found it's way into my predominately black wardrobe. Aside from desperately needing more pentagrams I like the splash of color.

A "splash of color" is what sets off the black IMHO.

You always look good.

Beautiful top Bri. Love it. You may want to get yourself a nice black camisole to wear underneath if you decide to wear it with more formal slacks or skirts down the road. It must feel amazing!!😁

      Minneapolis becomes 'safe haven' for gender-affirming care. Mayor Jacob Frey signs order shielding city from the anti-trans movement.    https://www.startribune.com/minneapolis-trans-rights-guarantees-gender-affirming-care-safe-haven/600232351/

      I got off cigarettes after nine years, and it was another year before I stopped dreaming that I had gone back to smoking. Arguably the least dangerous addictive substance in terms of impact on lifestyle, nicotine is nonetheless a formidable opponent when you're trying to quit.

      Hi @Jamey, nice to meet you. I wonder how other people respond to you on those days when you dress in jeans and a t-shirt? Do they treat you as male? And if so, do you correct them? I know for myself that jeans and a t-shirt can cause people to think of me as male, and while this hurts, it also gives me a day of rest from time to time during which I don’t feel so watched. In my case, I am out to every significant person in my life including workmates, so I don’t feel inauthentic so much as slightly eroded somehow in my sense of myself. But when I was still working with clients who did not know I was trans, and wearing jeans and t-shirt while I did so, that felt inauthentic.    I guess what I’m saying is, yes, authenticity is about how we feel on the inside, but it’s also about how we communicate that feeling to others. Maybe, in jeans and t-shirt, you feel you’re hiding in plain sight?

      I'm not sure if this qualifies as a thought for the day, but I wish it could be advertised to the wider community (I avoid using female restrooms/showers/... because of the wrong that exists between my legs). The trans woman in the public restroom is not saying, "I’m here to invade your space!" - she’s saying, "please take me in, I have no other place to go." We’re not conquerors or invaders, we’re refugees.

      I never understood (tobacco) addiction, until I overheard a conversation my Dad had with a smoking friend of his.   Dad had gone cold turkey on cigarettes after a close friend died of lung cancer at 40yo.  About 25 years later, he told his friend that he craved a cigarette every time someone lit up near him - so scary.  Kudos to every person who managed to kick an addiction.

      I was going to throw away my two pair of barely used "breasts".  I'm not aware of an LGBTQI center where I live but will take them with me on my ~1350km drive to Brisbane (nearest capital city) soon - should be something there.

      I think this is true for all mental aspects of HRT.  I've always been emotional so neither my wife or I expected much of a change on this front but there was - the emotions are stronger on both ends of the spectrum and I can swing fairly quickly.  The way I feel and sense interactions with other people has also changed.  I enjoy and desire conversations with women and I tend to get disinterested during conversations with men. On a slightly negative front, I have started experiencing a "loss of power" - I have been a team leader for many years and have recently started noticing that people (men) outside my team sort of ignore me and start decision making conversations with male team members who work under me.  My being less assertive since HRT may be one of the reasons for my perceived loss  of power.

      I'm sure that others have probably mentioned these before, but in my pre-HRT research I never saw taste/diet change or body odour change listed, so these both came as a pleasant surprise for me. The impossible to miss diet/taste change for me has been that I'm eating salads on a plate, with dressing, for the first time in my life.  It's not just that I'm eating them, I'm really enjoying them - having meals with plated salad at least 4 times a week now.

      It was many years before the shame of my addiction lessened.  I had heard the statement : "i'm grateful to be an alcoholic" and thought the speaker nuts!  Today i can echo those words as i accept my alcoholism and gender as well.   I have found that i when i share my journey it shows another there is a path.  It is always up to them wether they want to take it.   It took me time to fully understand " To thine own self be true" .  Yet another reason to be grateful.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I've been inspired to count clean and sober days.  I got a 24 hour coin and triangle necklace.  I've been listening to Elton John lately.  I started counting days from my 30 year Navy anniversary.  I like the idea of celebrating 50 years since joining the Navy and 20 years fully clean and sober on the same day.  It's good to have goals, right?   Whether I'm truly an addict is an issue I struggle with.  My lifelong best friend definitely is an addict.  I come from a long line of alcoholic gamblers on my father's side.  Thankfully, my father started recovery through AA before I was born and then gave me a good education in it while I was doing drugs in high school.  That definitely slowed down my alcohol and drug use.   My friend has struggled with AA for decades and he is still in active addiction.  I think it is critical to have a good home environment to get clean and sober.  I don't think the people he is living with are using much, but it certainly is not a functional household.  I've been very protective of my home environment.  I guess I'm writing you about all this because I might feel like a bit of an AA imposter being around him.  I do credit AA with the successes I've had over addiction and I'm starting to show a little pride in that.   OK, I've got a real question in this post...  Do you think there is value in hiding my AA pride from my friend?  I certainly don't want to cram it down his throat.  But after actively coming out as transgender, I have a clearer picture of what it is like to hide.  Hide/pride.  There is both a positive and negative side to pride.   When I got my 24 hour coin, I looked at it and said "spiritual progress, not spiritual perfection."  I love the To Thine Own Self Be True and the serenity prayer on them.  It really is a good token.   On a side note, my father stayed clean and sober for the rest of his life, but he continued his gambling addiction.  It was a real turn off for me, so I've stayed away from gambling.  In a few years here, I'll be in the position of having money to invest and I'm realizing that the gambling aspect of investing is a total turn off for me.  I think I'd rather work another year or two to cover the interest I might have gained by investing.   -Lydia

      Baseline audits are a normal thing for charities and the ones I was involved with as an auditor usually came up with nothing worse than that a former signatory for bank checks had not been removed from the account after the signatory had died in office or that bank receipts were not being turned into bookkeeper although the funds were showing on the bank statement, thus the statement showing too much money (the minutes of the organization were also quiet on the transactions because of that too.)  Nothing evil or felonious just carelessness corrected by a thorough review and admonishment.       A case where some POTENTIAL for harm exists, and a demand for ZERO potential for it by depriving ALL beneficiaries.  😵 😵  Even on these forums we know that some forms of binding carry the possibility of harm and we have done our best to recommend against those actions.  This is a matter between the Trans Man and their supportive medical team and NOT some busybody in the neighborhood who read The Daily Mail's scare piece on it.

      Hi y’all   Some time back my wife and I were in a fabric store together.  She is making a baby quilt for a friend of ours and was looking for backing fabric.  Any way I asked if she would help me pick a fabric and pattern and teach me to sew.  I thought it fell of death ears.  Then last night she shows me a pattern, what do you think of these?  Then we talked about the cost of making versing buying ready made.  The only savings would be a nicer fabric and multiple pairs off the same pattern.  Today she found where she could get the pattern.  Sounds like she is really making an effort for me.   😀willow

      Perhaps walking into the edge of the door will never be as painless as before but the sensitivity has its pleasant aspects as well.   Hugs,   Charlize
