Guess who’s not wearing all black today? Maybe the world’s ending. I’m trying to look innocent but, well, you know. It’s so hard to keep a straight face. 

 

I don't know... not all black... it's a little... disturbing. Kind of like a little kid with a bloody knife and a manic grin...

 

Glad you like my shirt though. I'm basically half-dressed for the gym. I just traded my (lavender) leggings for shorts and sandals. 😉

 

Tomorrow though... back to looking like a lesbian on laundry day.

 

Hugs!

Just seen some more of what you are all wearing and there are some lovely outfits again. 

I bought this new skirt a few days ago at a local independent shopIMG_20210610_230625398.thumb.jpg.fff29e645bad05aa0cbc06513db224aa.jpg to wear out to a meal with some other trans friends. I love this skirt. It feels wonderful and the colours are appropriate for the month. It's the most expensive individual item of clothing I've ever bought but couldn't resist it when I saw it.

 It it’s supposed to be really hot today. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 
At times I can’t believe we can dress like this at work.  But then again, we are like a box of broken toys.

I have a green cami I could’ve worn but it might have unbalanced my color scheme.

Depends on the shade of green to be honest. I like black with some greens.

After I got home I was on an ice cream run, by myself 🙁 Took my naked Jeep. Ya know what, just assume if I'm out by myself, I'm in my jeep.  The skirt wouldn't fly. Well it would, that's the problem. I changed into some jeans. ❤️ I love these jeans. Also changed the shirt under the fishnet. When I got back she told me the top was too much. The jeans were good but the top was too much. I'm starting to think I'm the only one in this house with any fashion sense.

♥️Aww, thank you. Believe it or not, I crocheted the fishnet top and the skirt was made from a t-shirt. So it's like a $12 outfit.

Pffft the top is OK to go Jeeping in.

I had my doors off today but not the front tops. A pleasant drive out in the country.

Stopped to get a drink at a little market and the counter guy said Jeep girls are supposed to wear crop tops.

I said maybe next time I will.

Kinds doubt it but maybe I will and go back out there.

It's funny and sad. I have a hard top, soft top, and an emergency top, they all get left behind in the garage. At least my doors are locked. They're hanging on a wall but they're locked.

 

Crop tops? I'm in. I have a gray, cropped, cami top (that's a lot to say).

On Saturdays I often go into town for a beer or two and just be around actual people.

I stopped by a bookstore where we used  to (pre-covid) have open mic nights.  The proprietor said they would try to get them going again soon.  I used to go and listen to folks, and read some poetry or short stories.  It was fun.  

I started presenting as a guy (with nail polish) and by the time things closed down I was full-time Jandi.   Never had any problems there.

I was sent out on yet a 3rd run to get stuff. Part of my mission was to stop at a thrift store to look for a chair for our makeup table. Instead I found this gorgeous little dress. I really shouldn't be allowed in stores unattended. I almost passed on it until I convinced myself to try it on. It's like it was made for me. I'll take another picture when I can get all done-up to wear it. Not sure what occasion it's for but at $6 I'll make up one. Maybe work on Monday.

Love thrift stores and you never know what you will find.

I collect military jackets and BDUs and I found a slant pocket insect repellent combat shirt.

The pattern is more a woodland camo style.

Need to do a bit of research into what branch wore the style of shirt.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you in that - I expect it will be gorgeous.

Had to go out to the Dollar Tree for some cheep reading glasses.  I can't quit breaking them.

Same skirt, different topping.

I wore my new dress today. I also did my nails last night to match it, found a necklace I made last year. It just all came together and I’m really happy with how I look today.

      I don't think you're overly sensitive.   I find this kind of thing offensive myself.  But I do realize the people that post it have no concept of actually being transgender.  Of course this doesn't make it less offensive, esspecially when it's done vindictively.   I am not personally a fan of the drag scene.  But whatever.  That's probably because I don't like the idea of drawing attention to myself.     As for "crossdressing"…     It was when I finally got up the nerve to try fem clothes that I busted my egg.  But I don't consider it cross dressing.  To me it's just dressing. But I do realize there are plenty of people who are content with occasional crossdressing.  I'm not offended by that.  Sometimes it's just the situation they are in, or they may be NB.

      For ladies only "Tenderness"   sooo sweet....

      Perhaps simply knowing i'm not alone has been as important in finding self acceptance as anything else.  My feelings about gender and how i express it have certainly changed over time.  Some of that was societal pressure while some was simply due to life's pressing needs.  For much too long i felt shame and guilt for being myself.  Acceptance, whether of a distinct straight path or a winding trail, can take away self condemnation.      My life seems to wind and vary in many ways including my gender.  I've been hyper male, quite female and perhaps today i'm a "tomboy".  Truck and tractor driving farmer who puts on a skirt to go grocery shopping.  I just enjoy being me even if that is in flux.     Hugs,   Charlize

      @Willow, I definitely thik the dog thing is offensive.  Not only does it show blatant disrepct for transfolk, there's an unhealthy dose of fat-shaming there as well.   As for female impersonators, drag queens have a disproportionate share of gays and transwomen compared to society, and are more "like us" than you may realize.  Also, I think Ru Paul is a treasure who has shown me how beautiful a man can be feminine even without transitioning.  He gives me hope.  He also has some pretty inspirational music!

      Sounds like a wise man. I'm sorry for you and your family.   It's never easy, even when you are expecting it.

      Solly, I'm glad you found the forum. I've found it to be a wonderful place full of caring people who share their experience, give advice & support, & accept me just as I am. I think you will find it so as well. This gender journey isn't a race, so you can take all the time you need, relax & breathe. Where we fit on the gender spectrum is where we find we feel comfortable, some are fluid & don't fix themselves with a specific label. It's all up to you.   Welcome! Delcina

      @Willow those are legitimate gripes and I concur. Wish people would respect others differences and not try to find humor where it's not.

      Good morning everyone.  Rain predicted for here in the top of Virginia today and tomorrow.   I have a question for ya’ll.  I get offended by some things which I feel are taking a shot at us.  For example, a joke on Facebook showed a fat dog and the caption was “I identify as trans slim”.  Or I don’t like female impersonators.  They are nothing like us yet they were allowed to advertise their show on on a transgender only secret website.  Am I overly sensitive?  Is it wrong to feel these sorts of things are offensive to me?  Let me know what you think.   @Elizabeth Star I was a Jack! Now Jill of all trades.  Made furniture, repaired the house and car, replaced a roof, you name it ive probably done it.  But I’m getting older and muscle mass is lessened.  My last project was definitely not up to my standard so I’m done.  Giving my stationery power tools to my son.  Gave away or sold a lot of stuff during our move out.  And will likely have more to deal with after we move in to our new place.  And my eyesight, very frustrating and upsetting when I can’t see clearly.  Nothing is ever at the correct focal distance.     let me know if I’m being overly sensitive with things I think are slaps at us.   Willow

      @Elizabeth Star now that you have experience how about doing my and Cyndee's doors ?

      I would be so mad if I broke a nail working on this stuff. I could hire someone to do the work but since I know what's involved I have trouble trusting other people's quality.

      Thank you all of course. I will get over it.  It's just that it's still a pain when it happens. That sounds kinda heartless but well....   to be brutally  honest.... that wasn't my dad anymore the last few years. It's his body of course.  But not him.. It was that, with every visit, he was a little bit more gone... So we already kinda said goodbye to him during the last 5 years or so. He could't recognize anyone anymore and couldn't do anything anymore..  For him it's sort of a good thing i guess....  He wouldn't want to be kept alive like this... Most things are already arranged by now... Cards have been picked and texts have been chosen. Dad is brought home in a coffin and ... what is the English term?...  laid out? (that sounds weird google translate) Just he's now presentable for anyone who wants to say goodbye. But it will be a week before he will get cremated. Mom still has her ankle operation going on tomorrow. So i have to get up early to bring her to the hospital.   Today i remembered something my dad thought me while i was a kid... Forgotten it for the longest time but .... He once told me:   "i don't care what you do with your life, be a president or a garbage collector. Just be happy with what you do" Not sure how old i was... somewhere between 10~12 years or something? I should keep that teaching in my life...  I know he mend it for my work career but i should apply it to my whole life...   Anyways,  for now i'm going to chill a bit. Woke up at 04am and with everything that happend i got a bit tired.

      Just a link.  But being informed is best and real sources .  Its not an easy read ,for most . I was a  science major .   nejm.org   The New England Journal of Medicine: Research & Review Articles on Disease & Clinical Practice (nejm.org)

      Liz you're a jill of all trades it seems! I'm done with that kinda stuff.  I know how to fix most things, but I started pawning tht out to contractors about 7 years ago.  I used my back issues as the excuse but in reality, I just don't want to do all the "fix it up" stuff anymore. (especially after a manicure haha).  I think people have also started changing their expectations of me as well.  People use to come to me for help with all the "manly trades" but no one in the last year has except to borrow a tool or something.  My neighbor didn't even ask for my help building his deck (I've built 20 by now) even though I offered to help back before my transition.  We used to help each other with things like that. It's not like he isn't comfortable with my transition, he and his wife have been amazingly supportive and his Oklahoma courtesies of "Yes Ma'am" never fail to tickle me but he is definitely not going to ask a woman for help with carpentry. haha I find myself slipping into my feminine stereotypes more and more and I like it .
