Shipmates

Shipmates a family

together we fight our ship.

Separate and the ship fights us.

Shipmates a family

On the ship we may disagree

On liberty no family is tighter.

Shipmates a family

Brothers and sisters standing together.

Together we will stand tell Davy Jones takes us down.

Shipmates a family

From before Trafalgar and Nelson

Midway and Nimitz

Through today our shipmates bring us through.

Storm or battle it okay your shipmate has your back.

Shipmates a family.

So shipmate know this that intel we meet in Davy's locker

I will stand proud and tall beside you

I will call you my brother or sister and defend you as such.

Shipmates a family.

First of all, I am blushing! I am so red that cherries look pale, hehehe. Thanks so much sweetie! :wub: I am very honored and proud that you wrote this after being inspired by me.

Secondly, we come from all over the place and you accurately describe that. I wish I was in San Diego, lol, much nicer than Indiana. It doesn't matter what our origins are, we are bound together by our fate. Here at Laura's, we love and accept everyone. What a wonderful family we have!

:goodjob: Love the poem too!

Hugs a ton!

Thanks dear. While i was never in the navy my brother served through Vietnam and my father in law was a captain in the merchant marine. I have to think the poem includes all of us in this ship of fools. I'll stay below and cook up some grub as Jody swings aloft in the rigging looking for icebergs. Good thing Lilly and you have a clue about the ships workings. Hopefully we'll find a ship's poet. Oh yes i forgot ....we have. Thanks

Hugs,

Charlie

We reach through the ages, find commonality, band together and rise up. we are stronger as shipmates then we are apart, just know this continues to be true even after we find our liberation, together we succeed, divided we are conquered. :: hugs :: always good to have people who have your back, knowing they are out there just makes it a little easier knowing there are many people fighting your same battles, you are not alone.

      I didn't get misgendered at work today! I wore foundation in addition to my usual eye and lip makeup, and though (to me anyway) subtle, it seemed to make a difference! I waahed it off before bed, but I'll do it again and take a pic tomorrow so I can get your thoughts...

      Thank You both for the replies!    I haven't considered the downloadable pamphlets, because she doesn't speak english (there isn't too much information about this in our country) , and I thought it was enough what I was explaining to her, but I might be saying something wrong, or she might misunderstood me somehow. I don't know yet, so I'm gonna try again.  I'm gonna post an introduction soon, and I'd like to interact with the people here. I found transgender people are one of the most patient and nicest people out there, so thank you for blindly accepting me! :)    Heiko

      Thanks so much for the advice! I  just talked to my parents about cutting my hair, and they seem cool with the wig idea too!  ٩( ᐛ )و

      They’re all so cool! Keep up the amazing work!

      I got some makeup that was serviceable but pretty crappy from Amazon by just blindly guessing what would work for me, but later after I came out to some friends they went shopping with me at Macy's where a very friendly attendant matched with some makeup, did my whole face, and gave me some samples to keep using before I bought anything. Are you out to anyone who could take you yet? It's way less intimidating if you're not going by yourself.

      I do have comic ideas in mind. But for some friends I might start being their concept artist, they said they would pay me. That's the goal

      My current therapist (not specialized in gender identity issues) is the first and only person I've shared the daily struggle I face with my body .  She tried to understand me at first but dismissed it after only two sessions. Her reason: my posture wasn't "manly" enough to qualify as FTM. Many of my hobbies fit the "male" category though, that is the "geeky male" category not the all "macho" one. I don't like sports but I'm quite into gaming and comic books. However, like many, I also enjoy non "gender specific activities" of course. I don't act "manly" so it is easy for me to hide the fact that I'm not ok with my female body. The way I move and speak hide my male self. My posture is shy and awkward and my vocal cords only seem to produce girly sounds. I wish my voice was deeper but it isn't. I'm a bloody soprano leggero, which is rather high. With vocal lessons though, my voice has dropped but just slightly so, it's still very girl-like. I'm not into skirts or dresses, I attempted to be but ended up going back to pants. I like t-shirts with images from movies and games but I also like skinny trousers with prints.  What kills me ends up being the way I move and talk. My awkward, shy and geeky self makes people perceive me simply as a quirky girl.  I've been experience body dysphoria ever since I was 12 (I'm 24 now). Still, my therapist didn't believe I could be trans because I don't "act like a man" and the fact that I've never felt attraction towards a girl and like blokes instead didn't help me much.   I don't believe you have to fit the male stereotype to qualify. So what if your tastes aren't all considered "guy tastes"? If you feel miserable in a female body, no matter your interests, there's indeed a possibility you might be FTM.   I've scheduled an appointment with a therapist who specializes in this matters and I'm hoping to finally be properly heard. Maybe you could do the same. I think it could help you clarify your situation. I find it a bit scary though. I'm afraid it'll make me go into an even darker place. Still, I believe it must be done. Think about it. No rush.    I hope this helped a bit. I really wouldn't discard the possibility. I know cis guys who share many interests, no matter what gender this interests are normally associated with.

      Do you have plans as a book or comic illustrator? Writers and businesses pay illustrators well and I'm sure there are many venues that would appreciate your talents.
