Robin Williams R.I.P.

Recommended Posts

I am saddened to report that Robin Williams died today, apparently at his own hand. He was such a tremendous talent, and I've been watching and enjoying him perform since his television days in the 70's. He was as gifted a dramatic actor as he was a comedian, IMO, and his loss is devastating.

May he rest in peace.

This was very very sad news for me as well. He's always been one of my favorites. I've loved almost every thing he's done (shy of toys and Cadillac Man). I remember standing outside the Local Theatre (3 theaters back then) the line all the way around the back of the building for the Opening of "Popeye". I still have a poster for that.

An amazing actor, and a great loss!

This is yet again a reminder of our major work on this site. Robin was not Trans* to my knowledge, in spite of Mrs. Doubtfire, but his death is affecting our community, and yes my personal church community as well since Robin was one of my coreligionists of note. We never really know the weight on another person's mind and heart, and darkness that keeps us from seeing what we mean to others and what we have actually done in life is the worst of all.

Not only did he do Mrs. Doubtfire, but he and Gene Hackman also starred in The Birdcage along with I can't think pf his name. I also enjoyed RV, it was just a silly comedy but still funny as all get out.

RIP Robin and fly with the Angels,my brother

I think my favorite roles of his was as Dr. Sayer in "Awakenings," Dr. Maguire in "Good Will Hunting", and of course, Alladin.

I have the memory of all the laughter and all the tears.

Robin was a great comedian and actor. My wife, son and myself had the honor to meet him one time while he was filming RV in southern Alberta. Having lived in an area for a while that had lots of actors and actresses vacationing I treated him like another human of his statue; with a simple nod of the head. I had also just got off of work and hadn't been given a chance to wash first either.

May he rest in peace now after suffering from depression.

Yes his loss is devastating, it just goes to show you how the mind works, it is very powerful. Thats why we as cross dresser's and transgender, and men and women who want to be different,(can't think of a better way to say it), have to be very careful. I remember when I was an active alcoholic, I would come home drunk and sit in the basement and cry. And ask god why he didn't take me, as I didn't have the courage to do it myself. Slowly as a I started to get sober, I realized my mind and the alcohol were playing tricks on m, so the mind is very powerful. To those who might be contemplating this action, remember there's a lot of help out there, just waiting, and of course Laura's playground is also here to hel. In this fellowship or group, there are a lot of very smart people, who might have been through this. To all, have a great day and love and hugs Sweet Charlene

This was very sad news indeed. May his soul and spirit be at peace. And may his demons be gone.

He gave us so many wonderful things. While I loved all of his work I think his more serious ones were his best. "Dead Poet Society" had a great effect on me.

I posted this on my Facebook, quoting someone else, because he said it so well. And no, I do not know Michael Evans nor is he a public person, just someone else out there who feels this loss.

"I know a lot of people are dismissing another celebrity death; that their life meant nothing to you. For some, Robin was our first true role model. A blue cartoon genie that taught us the difference between right and wrong, and that being yourself was all you needed to be. A father should and would do anything to be with his children, including dressing in drag, or even going back to Neverland to rescue them from pirates. An English teacher can be more than just a giver of grades. A blunt therapist can teach you how to love your wife for a lifetime. A doctor that shows us that laughter is what we all truly need in life.


This has crossed the line as just another celebrity death. This man made us laugh when we thought we couldn't. He made us learn when we thought we knew enough. He has inspired in most to be better than we already were. Peter Pan has now passed, but we can't forget to find our happy thought and hold on to it." --- Michael Evans

      If you have insurance, they might have options, and or your doctor, to get a referral for some type of Nutritionist that could help you. Possibly a councilor  could recommend group meetings, perhaps even a trans group that you could join. I know it helps to have a support system in line. Substitute fast food with veggies and fruit. Drink water with all of your meals, good or fast food, drink water. That helps me filling up and it's just plain healthy. Try and eat salad with your meals too, they can be rather tasty. Dont go cold turkey, ease into it, find a comfortable balance. Walk when you can, and ease into that too. Start bringing small weights with your walls after a while. Maybe find people that are willing to walk with you.  During my research of HRT and what would help me see changes, boobie growth, losing weight was one of them. That inspired me, cause I noticed the changes after i lost weight and maintained keeping weight off. The weight distribution has really been shoing this past week.  Other than eating healthy foods, going to a therapist might help you with what is driving you to eat when you are not hungry.  I wish you the best!

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more.

      Thank you. 💛💛

      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.

      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      The right wingers will go crazy over this (I think they already have), but I think its appropriate and a nice touch.   Carolyn Marie

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn

      In an effort to make Berkeley more inclusive for its non-binary residents, the city council voted Tuesday night to make the language more gender neutral, following a city clerk review that found that the municipal code primarily contained masculine pronouns.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/07/18/berkeley-plans-remove-gendered-pronouns-its-municipal-code/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.8248f991c2e8
