I more fear being caught wearing a bra with folks who know me (family, friends, church members) ... I have no courage around the family most of the time, however. sad

Do you want to change that? Do you have plans in mind?  Have you tried?  I don't know, just curious to see what works. I have a family out there that someday may see me out there, if you know what I mean.

 

My wife and I had a discussion years and years ago in which I explained where I am at (in no major way has it changed) and I said I knew she wanted a manly husband and I would do that for her, BUT I also needed to wear feminine clothing that looked male, because it works.  She is actually more accepting of me where I am than I am.  She commented a while back that tights are historically a male clothing item.  I am not there yet.  I also said that I wanted this to not be a daily item of discussion, because I view that as unhealthy.  She found purple panties one day in our closet that I had accidentally dropped out of the laundry and said nothing.  She has said things twice when she thought what I was wearing was over the line.  She wants this to work for both of us, as I do, and recent said in general that if someone is transgender and needs to transition, she would not be opposed to it.  I did not press the point in my case.   She physically needs my masculine strength: I work out and I have adequate muscle to take care of her; if I did hormones and if they worked that would not help her.  TG is not the only thing in my life, even if I am currently posting like crazy here.  I don't think that will last.  At some point my posting rate will go way down.

 

I have no idea where my kids are on this.  I know where my church is officially on this which is that TGs are welcome as members but not in leadership, if I recall correctly from the denominational document on sexuality, which I find lacking in many ways.    Friends?  Some I think would be shocked and outraged maybe even to the point of breaking the friendship, others I expect would be supportive.  If I ever decided to transition, I would begin with each one by finding out where they are at before shocking them with the unexpected.  My parents are dead and siblings wouldn't care.

Yes. No. Not sure. Depends on the moment... 😉

 

I have always been a very cautious person, go with the flow, don't rock the boat, make sure not to make the wife mad, etc. This has not served me well. I know in my mind that assertive communication is the way to go and that my opinions matter, but I crumble around people like my wife, who is a lot like her father, who ruled the roost with an iron fist. I have always really feared what people think of me and hate it when people think ill of me...

 

As with clothing, I find myself testing the waters. I wear things that push the boundaries (ruffle socks, women's pastel shorts, a cami underneath a shirt that obviously is not a guy's tanktop). I live with my dad currently (my mom passed in December). The only time he has said anything is when I was wearing a pair of mary jane shoes. "What are those?" "Ummm..." Most of my clothes are women's items now (jeans, shorts, etc.) but most could pass either way unless you really were paying attention (which most folks are too into their phones and other things to really notice)... 

 

I wore a skirt in public after a couple of doctor's appointments last summer. Man, I felt like the whole world was looking on in disdain. And I was like, "why am I bringing this kind of trouble on myself?" Yet I have this unmistakable urge to present female anyways...

 

My wife and I are currently separated. It started for matters not related to all of this (a long-time porn addiction that finally got found out - blah, not proud of that). We started counseling. Then about this time last year I finally reached the point where I couldn't NOT tell her about all of this. Interestingly she has reacted more viciously toward me over the TG stuff than the porn. I guess it was the last straw? I haven't been a terrible husband to her over the years. The porn was more about my own personal demons but of course I hurt her dearly and take full responsibility. If anything, my worst trait has been my passivity and just general selfishness with time, energy, etc.

 

Interestingly, she was a tomboy growing up. Played baseball with the boys until she was 13, wore her hair short until well after college. I remember folks in college talking about her "boyish" ways (well before we started dating in our late 20s). She told me a few months ago that when she was little that she wanted to be a boy for awhile because she wanted to play sports and not play with dolls (and a lot of doors weren't open to girls in the 1980s with regards to sports, unlike today).

 

I freaked out when she told me that. "How can you not understand a little about what I am going through, only in reverse -- a lot of clothing items are out of bounds for men?" Her response was: "I don't think like that any more. It was just a phase of my life, mostly because I wanted to play sports..." In other words, not about sex, which is what she perceives it is about for me... 

 

Anyways, at some point I am going to have to choose a path and go ... that is the part that scares me... whichever path I choose there will be wreckage somewhere (and I really hate hurting people)...

@EasyE I can identify with a lot of what you wrote.

 

I think my ex was always the dominant one in our relationship.  I was okay with that.

I think some of us are drawn to porn because it gives us an opportunity to see ourselves in the woman's position without realizing it at the time.  We don't want to be with the woman… we want to be the woman.

When I opened up to a psychologist about this, she told me it was quite common for trans women.  I was kinda surprised.  It helped explain some stuff.

One thing about guy mode is it always involves a lot of in-my-head porn in which the narrator becomes a woman.  I don't do ANY of that in girl mode.

 

I've stumbled across porn and read some but it does not do anything for me.  In girl mode, nothing. In guy mode the stuff in my head is way better.  This stumbling has usually occurred in trying to figure out what is going on with me, and porn usually leaves me cold if not disgusted.  People get off on this.  Years ago it could but not for a long time, and I never have had an addiction.  As I said, in girl mode it is not attractive, and in guy mode my head-porn is tailored to me and is much more satisfying.

While I am not trying to be a counselor, you will have to choose what wreckage you are willing to live with, and what wreckage you cannot stand.  It may take a long time to decide.  Marathon, not sprint.

My wife and I switch who is dominant all through the day.  She can be very much so, but I also have my limits.

 

Interesting about the 'wanting to be the woman'.  In girl mode (for me more of a mindset than clothing selection) I already am there.  In girl mode I could wear all guy stuff and still identify as f, although I would feel cross dressed and out of place and uncomfortable.  In girl mode I don't need to become the woman because I am already there.

I don't think I shift back and forth.  I am what I am.  

I always liked those "romance novels" although I would never admit it as a guy.

There were a lot of things I would never admit as a "guy" that I liked.  You have to keep up that macho image, even you know you're faking it.

The switching is not voluntary and is maddening.  It would be nice to be free of one or the other.  I tend to think that whatever mode I am in at the time is the "real me" - right now, girl.

I tend to not have a mode, per se, but I will code/context switch given a situation. On work calls or when hanging out with longtime guy friends, I operate as I have much of my life; using speech and thinking I have cultivated over the years as a socialized male. When I am meeting new people, I am much more feminine in my interactions. I don’t see this as having another “side” but more like operating on autopilot. Lately, autopilot makes me feel a bit like a liar.

 

Some of my affects have started to sneak into my normally autopilot interactions and it’s almost like a game of chicken if people will catch on, both worrying and exhilarating at the same time. I’m starting to understand why some people want to move and start completely over as their authentic selves, because the discordance created by straddling the known facsimile of you and the you that feels right really wears on a person.

In trying to understand this (I am not there yet) I once drew a shape, half-square, half-circle, and put straight lines perpendicular to each other in the square area and little circles at random in the other half, as if both modes are valid, which may be the case.  I can function well in guy mode, with some exceptions.

It all takes time. You are exploring who you truly are. It takes time for that. I'm still learning about myself and I have been out since April 17 2023.

Another model is the negotiating one: doing things acceptable to both the m and f parts.  We agree, for example, that I need to lose weight.  If each part if convinced the other is concerned about the good of both parts, it is well and good, and each should be willing to compromise.  Sounds like multipersonality disorder in which each is aware of and considerate of the other.

 

Still in girl mode, by the way.  Not expecting to change any time soon.  Girl mode is peace and happiness and rainbows and unicorns.

You reference yourself as "we", seems like you have two starkly different personas. I'm not a doctor, so I'm not going to say anything other than that's very interesting!

Interesting, amusing, provocative in the sense that I need to give this some thought.  I don't think I am really schizoid, it is just I am not sure how else to express the boy mode versus girl mode dynamic.  As I said, I need to give this some thought.  Thanks for the comment.

The sooner that you start with a therapist the sooner you'll find out what you have. I believe that it's going to take multiple sessions. multiple personalities are a possibility but I'm sure it isn't the only one. I have met with people who have multiple personalities and each personality experienced things differently. There are many possibilities that it could be. None of us are psychiatrists so we won't be able to diagnose you. We can give you opinions and that is it. Another possibility is two-spirit. Again just possibilities noting in stone.

Another model is that of the male persona that I use to cloak the female one from the world.  I'm leaning that way right now. Not two different personalities or spirits.  And the male persona is not quite successful, the thinking goes, and the female is being more assertive and is actually, when tried, better at dealing with the world than the male persona.  On the internet here and there over the last ten years or more I have presented as female after disliking what I was doing as a male, which seemed flatter, less expressive, dull.  As a female I feel I can let the real me out, which may be the case. 

 

As a male I am forever losing my man card.   There may be a good reason I have trouble holding onto it.

Things don't have to be decided quickly. Take the time and feel around. Is it something that you are comfortable with and does it make you truly happy? Are you comfortable discussing the reasons on holding onto it? If you want I'll help you with what I can and if that is a message so it's not where everyone can read it. We are here to help each other. Take care.

I am 67.  One of my earliest memories was Mom catching me at the age of 3-4 (I don't remember clearly) wearing my older sister's tutu.  I have been dealing with this for a long time.  For around the last 16 years or so it has really grown as an issue; before then it was background for decades.  Today I would probably be diagnosed and gender changed early on.  Not an easy path.  But I have survived, I survive, and I will survive this.

Simply wearing female's clothes doesn't automatically make you transgender. This is the criteria that determines if you are trans or not. DSM is used by many medical professionals. Table 2. [DSM-5 Criteria for Gender Dysphoria ()]. - Endotext - NCBI Bookshelf (nih.gov)

There is a LOT I have not said.   And I have consistently affirmed A-F since I first read this, years and years ago. I still affirm A-F as descriptive of me. Not one or two points, but the whole shooting match.

 

When I was 12 I used to pray before bed that God would make me a girl, and when I woke in the morning I was still a boy.  I read Abby Stein's story and she said the exact same thing.

Ok maybe. Like I said before I can't diagnose anything I can only give my opinion and nothing else. I hope you are able to find a gender therapist and you can get closure and look forward to more of your posts! Take care!

Sort of logging in where I am at.  Girl mode.  Do I even have a guy mode?  I put on a razorback sports bra in front of the mirror and shook my head and took it off, but that changed nothing.  I like them except the straps will peek out from under a t-shirt. They are great for exercise (I have other sports bras that are not razorback) and if I wear a bra I do not want it showing..  Braless but fine.  Many women would prefer not to have those scratchy itchy bindy sweaty things to deal with it they could help it.  I don't need it physically and it doesn't do anything one way or the other regarding feeling feminine or more feminine, to me an alien concept.  I just am this way regardless of what I am wearing.  Okay, if I am cross dressed in guy clothes I feel dysphoria.  Like this, no. It would be kind of fun to doll up but there is no need to.

Actually sportsing in sports bras, yeah. I have sensitive skin and those suckers need to come off as soon as possible so I don't break out in a rash. But they're great for keeping things from bouncing around...and back in the day, from presenting my (then) gynecomastia to the world. Now, let's show some straps! ;)

I have no problem with sports bras because they seem to keep things more secure than a regular bra. I'm glad I don't have that much of a problem with sensitive skin. The only skin problem I have is that is very dry and have to constantly apply lotion.

This is a new phenomenon for me. It used to be, as long as I had on women's underwear I was fine. Now, I feel like a bra is a must-have when I get dressed (and I love the Y-back or racer-back varieties).

 

I probably wear one 70 percent of the time (though it is more difficult now that it is warmer and I can't layer to hide them from folks) ... I'm a sports nut and I have noticed male football players wearing what looks a lot like sports bras in some of their workout photos. Interesting... 

 

I have moobs and will use this as my excuse if folks ask about what I have on under my shirt (and, ironically, my wife remarked a long time ago I needed to at least wear a tanktop under my shirts because of, well, protruding n's... ;-)

      It's awesome that you have had such a great friend in your life! I could only imagine what losing felt like to you. It's neat that you worked for the airlines. Did you take advantage of the space availability fights? My dad worked for Northwest and always flew every single summer except one where we drove from north Mississippi to Phoenix, AZ. My parents agreed to never do that again lol.

      The trans community won't be good under Trump at all. Biden is the one who has done more for the trans community than any other presidents. Last time Trump was in office he was at an LGBTQ rally and his support went quickly away from us because the majority of the voters are anti trans. He is going to get rid of our rights and also come after the rest of LGBTQ.  I don't know where you heard we would be better under Trump.    Trump unveils sweeping attack on trans rights ahead of 2024 (axios.com)   Trump Promises to Go After Trans People if Re-Elected (vice.com)   Trump promises to ban transgender women from sports if re-elected (nbcnews.com)

      Post 7 “The Pittsburgh Years” When I retired from the Army, we moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania because I had been hired by US Airways to work in their flight training department.  The transition to civilian life was a bit of an adjustment, but I never really looked back.  At the same time, I was excited at the prospect of having more Sally time. But with work and two teenage boys in the house, getting to be Sally was a challenge.    The biggest issue in this regard were my sons, as they didn’t know about my feminine side.  My wife and I discussed, in great detail, whether or not to tell them.  If they had known about Sally, it would have been much easier to actually be Sally when I wanted to.  But I still didn’t know exactly where my transgender journey was going to take me, and this uncertainty was the primary reason my wife and I decided it wasn’t the right time to tell them about Sally.  Except for the convenience it would afford me, we didn’t think it was fair to burdened them with such a sensitive family secret if it wasn’t absolutely necessary.  If at some point things changed and it looked like I might be heading towards transition, my wife and I agreed we would revisit our decision.   Despite having to tiptoe around the boys I was able, with my wife often running interference for me, to significantly increase my girl time.  The nature of my variable work schedule meant that often days off occurred during the week when the boys were in school, and on those days, I took full advantage of the time.  Additionally, I had discovered a new trans friend through a local support group, and my wife, ever and always accommodating, ensured I had time for outings with my new friend.    Willa, my new friend, quickly became my best friend, and after only a short time, she and my wife became quite close as well.  With Willa’s help, I would soon discover that Pittsburgh was a very trans friendly city.  Together, she and I made the town our own.  We attended the theater, the symphony, we went out to dinner regularly, and I think we visited every museum in the city.  With Willa’s support and friendship, I was actually becoming quite the girl about town.    Willa and I had a lot in common.  We loved to shop, we had similar feminine styles, and we had similar views and feelings about being trans.  In fact, our frequent and deep discussions about transgender issues helped me begin to understand my transgender nature.  Having Willa as a springboard for all topics transgender, was probably as effective as regularly visiting a therapist.  I would never discount anyone’s desire to seek professional help, but having an unbiased confidant, can also be an effective method for self-discovery.    Exploring the city as Sally and spending time with Willa was instrumental in helping me understand my transgender nature, and would begin shaping my transgender objective.  My feelings about the kind of girl I was and where I wanted to go began to solidify.  Being out and socializing as Sally in a big city like Pittsburgh, taught me I could express my femininity without issue.  I honestly felt confident I could live my life as a woman; however, remaining completely objective, I just couldn’t see giving up the life I’d built as a man.   At that time, I was being heavily influenced by the concept of the gender binary, which had me thinking I had to choose between being a man or being a woman.  It was Willa who reminded me there were no rules requiring gender identity to be binary.  During one of our deep discussions, she posited the idea of enjoying both genders, something she was doing, and a concept that made a lot of sense to me.  I was already living the life of a part-time woman, so I simply started paying more attention to how that was making me feel.    One characteristic that was dominating my feminine self-expression (and it continues to this day) was that when I was Sally, I was “all in.”  When I became Sally, it was such a complete transformation that I truly felt like a woman.  The feeling was powerful, and if I had to describe it another way, I’d say it was akin to an actor, so into the part, they actually become the character they are portraying.  That was me, and I discovered that this level of depth was extremely fulfilling, and that feeling tended to last long after transitioning back to my male persona.  Part-time womanhood it seemed, was actually working for me.    Eventually, a job change forced me to move away from Pittsburgh, but the enlightenment I experienced while living there has shaped the nature of my bi-gender personality to this day.  Even after leaving, Willa and I remained the best of friends.  We had many more adventures, some of which I will detail in later posts.  Sadly, Willa passed away two-years ago after contracting a prolonged illness.  Her loss was hard to take and I miss her dearly.  However, I have so many fond memories of our times together, and because her support helped shape me, she lives on in my heart.   Hugs,   Sally

      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.

      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.
