hi all, and thanks for having me. my username (and indeed my title of this post) is a reffrence to the ancient underwater city- I have a big interest in any type of mythology, but mainly greek. 


well, you can all call me emily if you like. I am from the UK, and I joined this forum because.. well,, I don't have anyone. I was abused growing up, and the abuse has left a lasting impact on me both physically and emotionally. due to issues with pain, and with daily tasks, what I wanted for my life, and what I have in my life now, well they are 2 diferent things. I saw you have a health section on here, so I'll be using that.


I don't really know what else to say.. I'm quite shy about talking to people and creating threads. I said I like mythology, I also like listening to music, romance novels, comedy shows, soap operas..


I am hoping in time I will share more about myself and my questions, (I have loads of questions)


for now I think the best thing for me to do is brouze around and join in where I feel it appropriate

Welcome to Trans Pulse, Atlantis/Emily.  Sorry to take so long for a reply.  First, let me say that it's nice to meet you, and you are welcome to look around the forums and post wherever you like.


Second, I am sorry for the abuse you endured growing up; that is a common thing among many of us, unfortunately.  But we are survivors, and a resilient bunch, and we rarely give up trying to survive and thrive.  We will do our very best to help you do just that.

Hi Emily, It’s a pleasure to meet you. Many of us here are shy but once you get a few more posts under your proverbial belt, it may become second nature. This forum is probably one of the most open and nonjudgmental forums in our community. Thank you for taking that first step by introducing yourself and sharing some of your interests with us. I’m also fascinated by mythology, hidden, lost or unknown archaeology and technology, and really anything related to those topics. I hope to learn more about you and your journey thus far as you become more acclimated and if you’re willing to share. Glad you found us!


Warmest Regards,

Susan R🌷

Hey Emily, I too am in the UK.  Not such a bad place eh.  I think of myself as pretty sorted but have earned so much from the lovely community here in the short time since I joined.  I hope you are able to reach out and find friendship.

sure the UK isn't bad is it?

it's been nice weather for this time of year. I liked it at first, but a bit relieved it is cooling down now.

      Them's fighting words, but I intend to discuss this respectfully, calmly and so forth, in accordance with the forum rules.   Considering the one issue below in isolation:   There is a political calculus that trans folk may be better off under Trump than under Biden.  The argument goes that Biden has created such a backlash by moving so far to the left that red states, in particular, are reacting with a swarm of laws that negatively impact trans folk.  Some of his actions strike many people as clumsily forcing unwanted regulation on people, and some of his appointments, such as the luggage stealing bigender individual, have not helped advance trans folk but rather the reverse.  In a second term Biden would make things worse for trans folk because of the backlash and resentment his policies would create.    Trump likely would have negative impacts to trans folk, as he did in his first term with respect to the military, so it is a set of tradeoffs as to which is worse.   Thoughts?

      Can you dress androgynously?

      There are trans folk who pass better than some cis people.  People usually aren't on the lookout for those who are cross dressed.  As long as there are no multiple screaming signals and you don't draw attention to yourself you can probably pass better than you think. For example, if you walk into a bank in heels, however, and you DON'T know how to walk in heels, you will attract the attention of a security guard, especially if you are acting nervous. If you wear flats and just go to the bank and do your business like anyone else, it is likely no one will notice, except that there was a customer who was taller than most women are, but then there are tall women, and tall, broad shouldered woman.  I made the mistake years ago of thinking I had outed such, and knew she was a he.  Later I learned she had five kids, and her husband was bigger than she was.  Ooops.

      I don't know much about CNAs.  They report to an RN, right?  Can you somehow bring this up to the RN in a way that does not get your CNA mad at you? I'm not saying you should, but maybe that is a good course of action.

      This is the thing.  A month ago tomorrow is when I stopped wearing m clothing.  Today I feel great.  I do not have dysphoria when I am dressed as and I move as a woman.  I was just thinking about that because I was wondering if I would or will get hit with a wave of "you don't have dysphoria so you might as well dress like a guy. Less hassle with your wife."  Not that she is aware, to my knowledge, that these androgynous clothes are women's.  No desire to "flip", no feeling of need to, just happy identifying as female.  Speaking, in my deep guy voice, with female voice patterns, doing the feminine gestures that come naturally and without exaggeration and at peace.

      Yes, my brother was born lactating due to absorbing hormones from my mum.    Of course she isn't a nurse, she is a CNA. She should however still have general medical knowledge.
    • Abigail Genevieve
      I agree.  But sometimes unethical conduct must still be legal, because the cure would be worse than the disease.  One problem we have today with the internet is the trolls can gang up on someone and destroy them - we see the with school bullying as well.   He was in the Southern Baptist Convention, and maybe he should have moved his church over to say the American Baptists, who might have been able to help him. A Southern Baptist pastor is king in his church, peerless, which means he could not have gone for help in his church.  And he could not have gone for help from any other pastor in the SBC because they likely affirm the SBC statements on these matters.  I think he was stuck.    I read this when it came out in the news.  Very sad situation.

      One organization that I know of that is dedicated to assisting LGBT seniors is SAGE.  They advocate for, and have services for, all LGBT folks, not just trans folk.  You can find their website Here.  I am not sure what, if anything, they have in terms of financial assistance.  I'll let you know if I find anything else.   Carolyn Marie

      This was an angle that I was very suspicious of as well, and may be the hook on which the settlement was hung.      Not at all strange especially if they had former patients who moved there that still owed money on their bills or they were buying hospital supplies from a Texas corporation. They may have business licenses in other states as well.  Small loss, but saxeT shot itself in the foot there since the license was a source of income to the state.

      Nah it's fine, I'm past the point of really blaming them most of the time. I've gotten used to it, and they could be a whole lot worse.   I'm glad you have a good place, though <3

      I wonder about the professional knowledge level here.  Men have milk ducts.  She, as a nurse, should know this.  This is interesting  https://www.livescience.com/45732-can-men-lactate.html  Yes, men can lactate and have lactated, trans or cis.  The idea that Birdie does not have milk ducts or tissue is just plain wrong.  Her statement indicates that she has not looked at the medical record, which she should be familiar with to treat the patient.

      Trans women can lactate under the right conditions. But that's not even the case in your situation.  It's so stupid how they simply refuse to accept your reality.
