If I Were The Last Person On Earth

Recommended Posts

Guest Opal

Hi!

Just a little 'What if' question I came up with while on a walk. Please assume the following:

Its the future, and HRT can be accomplished within a few days. A robotic surgeon can perform the surgery with high-quality results, but the power source to the surgeon may run down in a month, with no known way to recharge it.

The basic necessities of life are available, just no people.

At first, I thought my answer was a resounding 'Yes', but I want to think some more on it..... :(

Perhaps a couple of additional 'What ifs' :

What if there were a couple of small groups elsewhere on the planet, and someday you will meet up with them. One of the groups is very Trans-friendly, the other group Trans-phobic to the point of being a danger. Would this change your mind?

Answer to number one...yes, I'd do it right away...

Even if there are no other people...Because I need to transition for myself...not for others...

I'd still want to be me....

and number two....It would not change my mind one bit...

The group that is Trans friendly....Cool!

The other would never know that I was Trans in the past after my robotic facilitated surgery...

So, either way it wouldn't matter..

And I'd still be me!

Dearheart,

In this case, I would transition completely. After transitioning, being transgendered would not apply :)

I am woman!! No one would think anything else :)

Love

I would be sad because everyone I knew would be gone and wouldn't get a chance to see me as the woman I am. I am not transitioning for others (except in that a happier me is a better me to be around). I am doing this to be right with myself.

If there were going to be no people? Not only would I transition, I would get the biggest hoo-haa I could.

**poses like superman B)

......oh wait.....other people? small groups???? (sigh) hmmmm well, since one of the groups might have a cute girl, I'd think about her....I want my surgery to be so that I can be sure to be sensate lol. Thats whats slowin me up now :P

But you did say high quatlity.......

Ah, the one who didn't like transpeople. I'd hide from them till I charted their moves and then kill them all. Theres not exactly a jail to lock me up in. Pin it on wild creatures. Kill or be killed; I must do what I must do :mellow:

as for the group thing, well it could be in real life too really if you think about it. Groups of people that will accept, groups of people that are haters? Have the groups of people that hate us stopped us all so far?

Also I'd do what Evan would do if it was dangerous I'd somehow kill them. :P

Free, fast, and quality transition? You must be joking me. Where do I sign up?! I'd do this yesterday if I could, even if there were no one else left.

I'm with Donna Jean for the second:

Thanks Donna Jean!

This made me realize that I'm a bit concerned about 'Passing', even after HRT and SRS. Hadn't considered that the other group wouldn't be able to tell.

I appreciate your answers!

Hi Gin!

Yes, it would be extremely sad, the only hope would be if there was still at least one other person around to share life with.

Appreciate your comments!

Hi Evan,

Haha! I see you becoming the absolute leader of whoever is left! Great, confident answer. After seeing yours, I thought hmm, maybe if I could reprogram the robot AFTER surgery I could make a stand until the friendly group showed up....

Thanks!

Hi LeeAsher,

Well if the transphobes could somehow be educated, and their hate chased away, it might help for long-term survival for everyone.

Appreciate your comments!

I'm with Donna Jean for the second:

Hi Pol,

Forgive me for not correctly spelling your name. I hope that advances in medicine and science will allow for early detection and treatment. Your's and the other comments have sure helped me on aspects that I will need to discuss with a therapist, assuming I can find one in the area.

Thanks!

Yes! no matter the situation, i would transition, it's not a matter of worrying about what others think, even if everyone was trans-phobic... I'd still do it. I have lived my life for others way too long.

yup... no one would know... until they expected you to breed to repopulate the world. I suppose you could lie, but I'm sure there would be complete chaos and turmoil and there would probably be mandatory "inspections" to test ones fertility in a world such as this. One proper examination of ANY trans persons genitalia/sex organs would out you.

However I'd still transition even if it meant a life of being completely alone.

Never said it was "fair", said it was true lol. And something you should know: running from a thing only makes it want to chase you.

<-- can't help but wonder if you want a baby Ash.

And no its not a proposition :rolleyes: a ) I remember you're married. b ) Mary Ellen is never that far away LOL

But the quickness with which you went to that topic made it occur to me.

Suppose, just suppose, the "high quality" was that high. That you could reproduce as a woman. Yeah, you could discern some faint clue that the person transitioned so as to keep the anti group applicable, but trans people could repopulate the world. What would you do?

And why would you need to be alone even if you couldn't reproduce?

Yes actually, I'd love to have a baby. The absolute thought of it gives me such a wonderful feeling until the reality sets in and I remember that it will NEVER happen for me. It's probably why I have such a huge problem with my being trans.

Wait... am I just your 2nd choice behind Mary Ellen? lol

I could only dream for a time when our surgery was so good that we could reproduce the way we were meant to.

I was just saying that if in a world such as the one mentioned, there was a group of people who were not trans friendly, I'd still transition but stay away from that group.

      I'd be happy to explain more later. I just need to sleep now. Forgot that I had classes today and stayed up programming a Discord bot lmao
    • DeeDee
      Okay, I can sort of see what you are trying to say but would have to look into it more to understand more. Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. 😊 I don't want to hijack the thread, so I hope you find the answers you are looking for regarding pronouns.
    • Tetris
      Yes, I identify very strongly with databases. The concept of them, particularly the plaintext .csv database. So I don't necessarily identify as like... a literal table, ya know. More like the *concept* of a database. What a database stands for, what it's used in, the structure of the database. All of these... resonate with me in a way I can't describe. When I see a well formatted data file, in a way I can't help but to see myself in it. It's really hard to describe. I wish I could.  MOGAI (I forget what it stands for) genders are the spectrum of genders that are the ones 4-chan typically tries to troll. The ones that people say are "made up" and are "Tumblr genders."  For example if you search digigender on Deviant Art, you'll get a flag and a description as part of a network of other MOGAI genders. Digigender is best described to be a digital gender, one where your identity resonates deeply (or you are kin with) something digital like a file format (in my case, a .csv), email, software, or anything else digital-related. 
    • DeeDee
      I'm sorry Tetris I understand enjoying computers and programming and even being able to be more of yourself online than in real life, but I do not understand, your gender is comma separated values?  What are MOGAI-type genders? Genuinely curious as I have never heard of them. 
    • Tetris
      Hi so I made an account on here when I first came out as trans but didn't really care to continuously check this forum. I'm bigger on discords than I am forums (I think I'm on the discord too).  So I know that MOGAI-type genders are controversial but I identify as digigender. My gender is actually the .csv filetype (really, more generally, a database, as I find solace in collecting and indexing data, and find extreme peace in processing data, all the way down to my core--I really resonate with data structures). I've decided to use my own set of pronouns, file/file/files/files/fileself (File is a database. Data collection means a lot to file. It is files wishes to be seen as a data structure. One of files interest is programming. File has taken it up to fileself to learn as much about programming as file possibly could).    For others that use their own made up pronoun set, how do you get others to start using it? I'm really scared to tell people to use these pronouns else nobody would take me seriously.

      Thanks for making me notice what i left out   I forgot to mention how its a very Emotional ,Psychological and  Physical process that lasts a long period of time. They do not prepare you for that. Thats for you to understand and accept. They just give you the tools to assist in the process. You are gonna have some emotional and stressful times during your transition. The treatment will help. But not completly. You need to not only be emotionally strong but to also be very prepared for sacrifices you may have to make. Do not be fooled if its painted as all puppies and fluffy kittens. There are rough times to. Forums like this are here to help you understand all the options and what to expect. Preperation is always the best way to move forwald. However always remember the desion is ultimatly yours. The doctors will help but it is yours life to control.

      Wait a while We’ll figure out our lives  Hold your breath The wolves are in disguise  Don’t need your dirty hands  Don’t need to take a chance  Go stand in behind the fence  Can you feel that bleeding neck  Can you feel that now    Close the door  Take a walk around  Hold your breath  In these rivers you might drown  All alone you live inside  It’s alone you came and went  In the shadows the bounty rides A love that makes no sense  It makes no sense...   You could beat a cat in the rain  Losing all that you gain Working hard but you know  All things will change    The world it’ll spin and stand trial  While they spit and draw blood  from your smile  We’ll all make it back to the stars  But it’s ours for a little while    Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo   Brace your heart  In this rich and colored plinth  Hold your breath  It’s a key and a killer in your hands All I want is bells and whistles  All I want is fancy dreams  And you live and learn  And soon discern Nothing’s ever what it seems  Never what it seems    Beat a cat in the rain  Losing all that you gain Working hard but you know  All things will change    The world it’ll spin and stand trial  While they spit and draw blood  from your smile  We’ll all make it back to the stars  But it’s ours for a little while    Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo

      Belated good morning. The fall weather has been simply delightful all day. No rain in sight, but plenty of nice weather. I’ve been extra busy helping the parents lately. My dad is being more foolish than usual, turning down help after asking for help, I can only do so much. My mom can be even worse at times, but I guess that goes with being old. The problem is, they have been this way their entire life, and now it’s reared it’s ugly head. They didn’t make plans and didn’t listen to me decades ago, and now they are paying the price.   my kids are doing well, we played a good round of D&D Sunday, and hopefully we can play more really soon. My son is becoming a really good DM, and it’s fun playing with them and their girlfriends.

      WThe trick or treating part of Halloween will be enjoyed with two 5 year olds and their mommie. There is a neighborhood across the way that is a goo area for kids to enjoy the celebration.    I dont know what’s going on in my apartment building. I’m hoping the neighbors have something cool planned. There are a lot of parties going on in Hillcrest of course. There is always Balboa Park and downtown, and the haunted houses.    Since i I haven’t presented in public yet, I’m excited, cause I might finally have enough courage to muster to venture out in the neighborhood.

      Lots of good information here and I appreciate all of you sharing your journey. Right now I think I'm at that questioning stage and perhaps trying to find ways to show myself I'm not ttans. I do agree that I'm not cis gender but just exploring and reading all your journies to ultimately find out where I fall on the gender scale. Thanks everyone:)

      Hello Gabby!  (is that a new name?)  As you have read the recent thread concerning porn, etc. you can see that it is a diversion and "red herring" related to gender issues.   Also don't be drawn in by the "I like women or I like men" thing.  Gender and Sexuality are two different things.  Flip flopping is normal.  Our feelings on any given issue will change regularly given enough time involved in it.      Ok you know self medicating is bad.  Even getting regular check ups is not enough as I don't imagine you know what to look for, and there can be complications from certain levels in your body that you don't understand.  Start to get clean!  See your doctor and tell them what is happening.  They won't bite.  Ask them to legally prescribe and monitor your lab work.     As to not seeing the woman in the mirror?  This takes time.  I was two years into this journey before I consistently saw her.  There is certainly a mental element to this.  Once I started thinking like a woman it was easier to see me.  You are still on the outside looking in.  Faceapp and the like are fun but can drive you crazy.    Jani
