Hello Jude and welcome to Transgenderpulse!

 

We can certainly direct message you, but you don't have direct message privileges yourself until you clear the five-post mark on the forums.

 

So as the mood strikes you, please feel free to join the discussion, ask questions or whatever strikes your fancy. We're glad you're here!

Hey Jude! Welcome to the forums and hello from your neighbor here in NYC. It's nice to meet you and I'm hopeful you'll find the community here warm and friendly.

(Now I have a certain Beatles song stuck in my head...)

 

Love,

Hi Jude, Nice to meet you. If you have a minute and are open to the idea, why not tell us alittle more about your journey thus far? I’m sure like many others here, you have much to share. I’m sure your story might be of help to others who have had similar backgrounds and experiences.

 

Warmest Regards,

Susan R🌷

Nice to meet you all too. Here's a little of my background: I found out that trans people existed in college and thought that was really cool. The first transgender person I met was a transman who passed very well. I thought he was cis before he explained that he was trans and even showed me a picture of what he looked like pre-physical transition (unprompted).  I was very out as a pansexual polyamorous person and even lived in the first gender inclusive housing on campus at my school for my last 2 years of undergrad. I helped to keep this housing open and available to students on campus since my 2 out transgender roommates didn't have any spoons for advocacy in addition to simply being out and trans at the same time (in addition to dealing with 2 different kinds of mental illnesses respectively). This housing has expanded since I've been there and now includes 2 suites in freshman housing in addition to 2 suites in upperclassmen housing (although I imagine this may fluctuate on the need for gender-inclusive housing based on the amount of people interested per semester). I went to many gender discussion groups hosted by a nonbinary person in my area after undergrad and came out as nonbinary around 2017-2018. I use They/Them pronouns exclusively and have issues with gendered restrooms whenever I am in a building that doesn't have a gender neutral option. If I have to choose I will typically use the women's but I hate it. I wish all buildings had gender neutral restrooms available. I lived in San Francisco for about a year and was able to get an "X" on my drivers license, which was awesome! Then I moved to NYC and got my name changed with the help of some lawyers who took on my case pro bono (in connection with the NYC LGBT Center). Then I moved back to CT and had to choose between "M" or "F" on my new license and was sad, but at least the name was right this time! Last January (2020) Connecticut updated their requirements for changing a gender marker on licenses and I was able to change mine to "X" again so I'm pretty psyched about that. :) Currently I'm taking classes to get my masters at a local state school and working full time from home with my girlfriend (she's trans too). I've had to advocate for myself a lot this past semester since Connecticut's state schools haven't updated their systems to allow "X" as an option yet. It's slow going but my estimated graduation date is Spring of 2022 so I've got time to make some noise before I graduate.

      For me, cleavage is a no.  My boobs do the family women's thing and hide under my arm pits on the sides.  You can see boobs but hey do not meet in the middle without bras that leave me gasping for air. (C-cups too.)  I am glad you are happy.

      Hi folks ! my name is Myles. I’ve made a few other posts on the forums before, but I am starting this thread to continuously update my coming out process. I would really appreciate some feedback/advice too if anyone has any. I came out to my partner and therapist officially back in November 2020. Both have been 100% supportive in every way possible. I have also discussed with my doctor and have my prescription for HRT. I finally told one of my closest friends today (3/3). It was terrifying to work up the courage to tell her. But she was so sweet and affirming. She said she already did know, and was glad I was comfortable to tell her. She’s keeping my secret for me until I can come out to our other friends and at our work. I appreciate her a lot, and her response was everything people hope for. But I am not feeling relieved. I thought maybe it would make me feel happier, more relieved, or something. But I just feel kinda spaced out right now. This has many in an entire tizzy of self doubt. I don’t know really how to process this. I am planning to come out to my mom and sister tomorrow night. I’m not sure that they are going to take it well though. I just don’t really know where to go from here. I was hoping the “high” of coming out to my friend tonight would empower me to face my family tomorrow, but so far it hasn’t. I also have an important project due tomorrow morning, so maybe that’s clouding my feelings. Idk. Anyways, hopefully future posts from me on this thread are more positive. But for now I’d really appreciate some sort of feedback. Did anyone else feel like this? How do you battle the self doubt ?

      Believe me I was surprised. I can't wait to show the picture to my friends. As I don't want to show them my breast unless they ask. As for the rules I understand it. Most forums i have ever gone to. Seem to have at least a pg13 rating for the most part. Also I don't think I have any thing with a v neck. As  before the hormones I didn't like my chest region.  So I kept it pretty covered, or v necks never looked good on me. Ill see if I can find some thing with a lower or v neck some where deep in my closet.     Me too. Im only 2.5 months in to hormones, and genetics aren't on my side.

      Pretty.   I was always jealous of my sisters' hair.   We boys always got the buzzy treatment. I was a bit of a hippy myself once I was not so much under my parents.  After some military madness I went to California where I met my wife.  They weren't crazy about her either.  Oh well.  I was kinda the black sheep. My mother once said that "hippies" should be put in a concentration camp. But when she was old she had Alzheimers.  We helped keep her in our home, in fact she died there. But like I have mentioned, both my folks were gone before I came out.  I suspect they wouldn't have been thrilled.  I guess we were spared that one.

      I was fully out and living as a woman a few months before HRT.

      Given that this doctor is at the VA, I am not exactly filled with confidence.

      Welcome Rei! Love the look! So happy your family supports you.   Hugs! Delcina

      I should point out that you CAN display your cleavage in an appropriate bra and shirt combo. I know I have more than one acceptable for the public top that would display cleavage if I had any. You may peacock, just not in your underwear. Underwear and naughty bits must be covered.   I should also say that recommended practice is to post your pics in a gallery with a link in the forum post. This restricts eyeballs to site members and stymies fanciers, fetishists and other creepers. This has been today's public service announcement. Brought to you by the letters T, A and the number 69.   Hugs!

      Imagined, looking great! Just starting journey, so I can only imagine how wonderful it feels.   Hugs!  Delcina

      Show off. 😉   I'm happy for you, but not gonna lie, I'm a bit envious. My girls are severely cleavage impaired.   Sadly, no underwear pics. Even if you promise not to be sexy. We can't risk it. Young brains (or more importantly, the brains who look after the owners of young brains) could explode. Can't have that. The cleaning bills would be horrendous.   Hugs!

      Thank you Charlize for the kind words.   I came back from college a Hippie, and my Mother told me she must of been a beat-nik, just didn't know it at the time.     Thank you Jani for allowing me to hog your thread.   I need to start my own but all the questions I come up with have already been addressed quite well in past threads.      ---WILLOW---

      Hurry for the bold and brave!☺️

      I noticed last week I definitely was getting to the point of probably needing a bra. As im fluffy all ready, but today I put on one of my wonderful pushup bras, and literally cried. I have cleft that I didn't have a few months ago in the same bra. I just want go out and buy v neck tops now, and get rid of the rest. I did take a picture capturing how happy I was. I'm not sure if I can post a picture from the waist up here in a bra. So unless a mod says yes. Just your imagination sorry.

      Jane, Yes the VA Does perform early pre-GCS orchiectomies but, from my reading of the manual, this would be available in the case of two or three HRT chemical fails. Contact your Endocrinologist or PCP for more detailed intel. I will try to find the manual for citation. Hope all goes well for you.   Kjiersten,   <Kj>

      In California there is a law that requires extended/senior living and assisted living places to not discriminate on the basis of sexual preference or gender expression.  The law is fine, but as Vicky points out (above), that doesn't mean that individuals within those facilities will be as voluntarily tolerant as the management & staff are mandated to be.  I guess it would be up to the facility managers what to do about transphobic or homophobic residents.  Any way you look at it, it would be an uncomfortable situation.   That said, I still would not wish to be segregated that way.  Such segregation wouldn't guarantee piece of mind, either.  I know some trans folk whom I would not enjoy living next to.  Ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances.      Carolyn Marie
