Silly Little Goal - Making Those Lists.

Recommended Posts

Guest Lacey Lynne

So, those of you transitioning, have you got any "silly little personal goals" with your transition?

Actually, we'd all be happy to hear what your goals may be. Really.

Finally, today, I've admitted to my self that I'd like to earn and deserve the right to take a place on:

Lynn Conway's website:


... and ...

Karen Serenity's website:


Know what? I can truly think of about half-a-dozen transpeople (girls AND guys) on THIS forum who I believe belong on the aforesaid websites (Lynn Conway's site has a transmen's section too, as it so should!). I won't name names, but I could. Many of us would agree that they deserve places on these wonderful websites.


Ha! It's gotta be providence! As I write this, Portland's own Radio Station KGON is wailing away with THE BEST version of "Midnight Rambler" by The Rolling Stones from back in The Day! YES!!!

Life is good! Life is VERY good! Yeah, sigh, alright, okay ..., so I'm vain ... I'd really like to earn a spot on those two lists. Personal little dream. Maybe that'll happen someday. If not, that's okay too.

Love :thumbsup: Lacey

My transition goal has always been to help those following in my footsteps. I had a REALLY rough time getting through my teen years and I wanna become a sort of role model (like Zachary Quinto did a couple days ago) for people in Jr High School and High School struggling because of LGBT or just general life issues

Silly little goals are never really that silly, are they?

Most people would call me silly, to want to be on the big screens of movie theaters, or the planks of stage of which a soul-wrenching monologue is performed. But, then again, they called everyone on those movies and stages silly, didn't they?

So, again, silly little goals are never really that silly. They really aren't.

Hi everyone,

Silly, yep. I don't know what it has to do with transition but I plan to learn the guitar and do whatever I can to perform on stage. Funny thing is, I'm delaying starting lessons until I'm comfortable with my presentation.

I've thought about how I can help others in their transition, and that's important to me, but I'm not sure I have the skills or confidence to be fully committed to anything formal or public. I'm a humble person, so I guess I'll quietly help in any small way that I can. That's my nature anyway.

Interesting, Lacey.....

My goal was always to jut arrive to where I am now... in one piece with my mind intact.....no other goals other than being happy...

But now, I find myself in a predicament...

Oddly enough I didn't just fade into the woodwork.....I've been a mod here on Laura's for over three years now...I'm in the New Orleans LGBTQ organization...I'm a member of New Orleans PFLAG.....I'm involved in LTA (Louisiana Trans Advocacy) a statewide group where I'm an officer....

Nope. Never planned on any of that. I was just gonna be Donna Jean and quietly fade away and be happy.....

Well, at least I got the "Happy" part right!

@Donna Jean - I am very glad, for you and for all of us, that you are staying active in the community. You're a wonderful representative, and I am very proud of you and what you and Lizzy and Sally are doing.

As for my own goals, I've reached some already, like being accepted by the world around me, but more importantly, accepting myself for who I am, and becoming comfortable in my own skin.

I wanted to make a difference in the Community, and I have a good start on that goal, too.

I wanted to keep my family together, and so far, so good.

I wanted to fit into the pencil skirt I bought last year. Meh, 3 out of 4 ain't bad. ;)

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie

      Sounds like you are doing very well.  Back when I started things out on the name change, I could not do the gender change until after GCS.  Several months after my GCS and all the changes for me made, they changed the laws -- for the better -- so I would not have had the long drawn out  program that I had to do.  Keep your head high and you will make it, and laugh about all of the hassle.
