TRANS*cend!

Recommended Posts

Guest LilyRose

Today was a BIG day for me. My therapist had OFFICIALLY diagnosed that "there is no doubt in my mind that you have gender dysphoria and you truly are a woman in a man's body. The strongest case I ever worked with!" She will be transferring me from her to a real gender therapist in December who will guide me as I make my way through womanhood. Here's a poem laying my man self to rest and embracing my future!

TRANS*cend

At this point, it is not enough for me to

simply transition into the being that has

eluded me for all of my life. At age 27,

the shell of a man will depart from me
to join heroes who died at the same age.

Jim Morrison, the playboy poet, whose

gaze can melt icy hearts. Jimi Hendrix,

silky smooth guitarist breathed freedom.

Janis Joplin, guttural vocal cords blasting.

Kurt Cobain, articulate grunge pioneer.

May that sad side of me find peace after

trying his best to hide Lily from the world,

but now it is my time to emerge as I find

myself with the help of wonderful people

who accept and love me for who I am.

Being a woman is a spiritual act that is

calling me from within. I will never be a

supermodel but I will be cute regardless.

I will always be pure and true to my mother,

to my sisters, to future family, and to myself!

"Transitioning" is not powerful enough to

describe what is running inside my mind.

Every day of my life will bring me highs

and lows. In my lowest hours, I always

must remember that I will TRANS*cend!

How about you?

Lily Rose

I hope you like it! *hugs for my readers*

Just a hint hon-- you will not really kill "him" off, the rest you will give "him" is in a hammock on a spring day sipping lemonade for the rest of your lives!! Its time he quit doing what you were meant to, but there is room for you to have a brotherly / sisterly love affair with each other, and you can be best friends of a sort. From here on out though "he" will not hold you back and will take his ease. Others may think you have killed him, but we know better. "He" will have a grin on from horizon to horizon as "he" watches you.

Hey Vicky

I guess that's what I mean when I said, "put him to rest". Like Jim, Jimi, Janis, Kurt, and so many others, they all live on despite their change in form. Seems like "he" will live on too, but in a much different way! *hugs* Thanks for reminding me that "he" will not die, just be far far away from me! Watching and truly being happy for me! :)

Congratulations on the great news, Girl. :friends:

Thank you for sharing your writing.

VickySGV has said it extremely well.

He will still be with you and you will still draw from his experiences.

However she will now be front and center.

The Peace and Happiness, I am experiencing, is truly priceless.

I wish the same for you on your Journey, Lily Rose.

Huggs, :wub:

      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

      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.
