Hello y’all from the southern states

Recommended Posts

I hope everyone is doing well. Little ole me jut wanted to say hi to you all and introduce myself. So here it goes y’all,  first off my story Sounds a lot like everybody else’s. Growing up in the deep south here can be kind of difficult. I mean I grew up in the country y’all. I remember around the age of 5 years old. I would watch action movies, and acting them out I always wanted to be the damsel in distress. She was the one that I wanted to mimic and then of course, all through my childhood years I had my sister and my mother who I would secretly swipe their clothes and try to find some alone  time. So for the most part around here, I acted my role, but I had to hide myself, and it affected me pretty much, my whole life through all my relationships, some understanding, and some not so much, but it’s finally good to find a place to where I can share my self a little bit without being scared of somebody judging me. all I wanted from life is to be happy that’s what all of us want and thank you all that have taken the time to read my small bio. 
 

Sincerely

Hi Jamie Lynn! Welcome to the forums! I am hopeful you will find the wealth of support and resources here helpful to you.... this is indeed a safe and judgment-free space for self-expression and sharing. I am sure many relate to the themes you talk about, myself included. Like you, I spent was countless years pretending to be a cisgender man and honestly being pretty bad at it. Know why? Actually a woman! I hope you have supportive people around you as you start out on your transition journey.

 

See you around! ❤️

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Welcome to TransPulseForums Jamielynn,

 

I grew up in rural Missouri Southwest of St. Louis. Like you I knew at a young age that I was different. I didn’t come out until very late in life and when I did it’s an understatement to say it went horribly. That was several years ago and things have settled way down, my marriage is moving forward. (47 years)

 

Best wishes, stay positive and motivated,

I love the outdoors but lately I have enjoyed staying inside learning to cook and keep house and have taken up soap making. I really enjoy that.

Is it easy to make soap? I have heard of people making it but I never did the research for it. I was originally from Harmontown, MS near Oxford. Which has maybe 120 people. It's way out in the country. It takes 30-40 minutes to get to town.

I do cold process. You have to combine all your oils at around 100 degrees and then add your lye at the same temperature together and mix well and fast to a light trace. I love adding the colors and fragrance and then making the designs in it. FUN FUN

Interesting. Sounds like a challenge.

      "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt". Almonds are a member of the peach family. Maine is the only state that has a one-syllable name. There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. Los Angeles' full name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula"

      Phew, well we can agree on the "be yourself" bit! And yes, chatting to others as yourself; in my experience that is so crucial. My sense is that, on the whole, people warm to me far more now that I am out of the closet than they ever did before when I was hiding.

      The trans people I was stating were the commonly quoted. In effect I am in one of those other categories but my thoughts still stand.   In my view it's not really a case of blending in though. I tend to think about things. One of my thoughts has been to look throught the eyes of a woman. Getting up every morning. Putting my clothes on (female) and going out. Am I seen as trans? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I don't really know. I just dress in the morning and live out my day. Yes I can be nervous. I'm that sort of person. When I think about it may cis women are self conscious too. Maybe not the same things but to the same effect. If I had been born female would it really have changed my world as regards being accepted as a person or would it have just brought other worries of equal magnitude?   There will always be  haters and agressive activism will only be fuel to their fire. In my experience the key is not to just blend in but to be yourself and chat to others as youself. Yes, that probably means you blend into your position in society but the only other option is to be outside.   Locally I look around me and hear what people say about different minorities. They are upset and even, at times, afraid of even speaking anything negative at times for fear of ending up in court. It is possible to get a prison sentence for anti trans speech and there are those who would attempt to achieve this end in the name of activism. The same is true with other minority groups. I suppose a worry I see, which luckily or otherwise I don't really have the option of locally, is that trans groups banding together in activism will be seen as a dangerous faction whereas an individual getting along (openly) with their life will not.   In my view many of the comments being made actually almost admit defeat as soon as they are made. Legeslation does not change the people. Only the people will do that. A big stick will only prompt an even bigger one.   Tracy

      I wore long skirts for years before going fulltime. Now I never wear long pants. I mostly wear skirts, skorts, or rompers. Occasionally, I wear shorts, usually over tights. I just hate long pants,

      I have two saxeT (they are backward) friends who have already changed their medical care down into Mexico although I don't think it was this specific reason, but this could spark an inverse border crisis pretty easily. This may be related to the Planned Parenthood record dust-up since PP would be getting a goodly chunk of the saxeT medicaid money since they are a good provider of services to the Trans community too.

      He does seem to have an unhealthy and fetishistic interest in Trans people.  It is almost like he is living vicariously as part of the Trans communities with all of this to the point of the DSM describing his actions in the Transvestic Disorders section.  His state is having disastrous range fires burning out of control and his mind is not on what his office can do for those victims.

      https://www.advocate.com/news/texas-gender-affirming-care-medicaid     No warning, no hearings, no expert testimony; for all anyone knows, this was done without any medical input at all.  The Texas war on trans people has gone farther than just about any other state.  You have to wonder if the people of Texas really approve of this aggression against a tiny population of people who have harmed no one.  There are a whole bunch of profanities I would spew forth at this moment, but my wife would not approve.   Carolyn Marie

      @awkward-yet-sweet  You folks are all doing very much alright.  Keep it going.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @VickySGV You've got an interesting, very broad definition of activism.  Seems to encompass almost any sort of positive activity, even perhaps reaching to things that aren't directly LGBTQ.  I suppose under that umbrella even I might be an activist of a sort (unusual thought).    I'm certainly involved in my community's food program, and I've been part of finding jobs for my two trans friends (and I doubt they'll be the last.)  To me, those things just seem like everyday human stuff.  And I suppose my presence could even have a mild influence in government.  My husband is a member of the Defense Board, our sheriff is a close family friend, and my sister (she's lesbian) is running for Constable of our township.  Husband's mother is the coroner and head of the county medical clinic, and her office is decidedly respectful and inclusive after hiring my friend as a nurse - complete with nondiscrimination signage on the wall.  If these sorts of things are aspects of activism, it is certainly quieter than what's often associated with the word.

      I'm with you, @Timi!  Happy I could share this with those that haven't seen it before (as somebody else did for me).     And ... I am totally with you too, @Vidanjali!  I couldn't have said it better myself 🙏😊

      "The bill also would force health plans that cover gender-affirming care to cover “detransition” procedures."   I don't think they're going to get many 'takers' on this part ...
    • Betty K
      That is so great to hear, Vicky. Much respect to you and Carolyn Marie.     Awesome! Again, so great to hear. And thanks for giving me some ideas.
