Here's a link to the movie's website. I totally cannot wait to see this!

http://www.boymeetsgirlmovie.com/

What's more is that I'm looking at this lovely lady, Michelle Hendley, (who is transgender, btw) and I'm seeing a young lady that I can finally identify with and relate to after all these years.

Also the website has trailers for the movie and some behind the scenes stuff, too.

Looks like a good Rom com. I hope all the good bits aren't just what's in the trailer though.

It's on Vimeo. Just watched last night. Overall it's the best trans movie I've ever seen. I highly recommend it. As much as I was dissatisfied with Transparent I loved this. It was so sweet.

I'm not much for romantic comedies, but I kind of want to see this just because they've actually cast a trans actor in a trans role! It's sad that alone makes me happy.

Ripely it really isn't a romantic comedy. Not in the sense that it's usually used. It's much more of a dramedy or just plain drama. There's plenty of funny lines but that's not the focus at all.

Just an fyi, this movie is now available to purchase and watch online or you can buy the dvd on amazon.

...and my copy is in the mail as we speak. I'm excited! I've heard really good things about this movie. Like, "it's a more positive depiction of us and our struggle than TransAmerica was" and "not just in the top 10 of must see movies with a transgender character, but the #1 movie of that list"

OMG! That was such a GREAT movie! It was so real and, by far, the best depiction of trans women and our struggles (and joys) that I've ever seen. On top of that, it was just a good movie all around.

Overall, a MUST WATCH!

I ordered the DVD yesterday, and it arrived in the mail today.

...too bad I'm not going to be home to watch it, but, mom is bringing it along for our get together in WI.

Speedy delivery at it's finest!

I watched it this weekend. It was great! Bring a box of tissues - you'll cry both happy and sad tears.

I just finished watching the movie and I have mixed reviews. I liked it in parts and I didn't like it in parts. The movie did a very good job at showing some of the struggles we face with acceptance. The cynic in me looked at a couple scenes in the movie and thought, "that wouldn't happen" but as a friend reminded me...it's a movie, so it's a bit of an exaggeration of the normal. Um, I wasn't expecting full-frontal in this movie so just be mindful of that. (I can't exactly have my mom watch it because she doesn't like that kind of thing) Then of course I cried at the end.

For the most part, though, the movie was definitely relate-able. Several times, Ricky said something that I would have said myself. :)

We watched it the other night with my father-in-law and sister-in-law visiting. We all enjoyed it and it speaks so many truths about being transgender.

I actually bought that movie (Boy meets Girl) because I loved it, and the cast and story. Another good movie to watch, I believe it's a made for TV movie, called Normal. Jessica Lange played the part amazingly.

While Boy meets Girl had a couple parts where I cried pretty hard, there were some parts in Normal where I fell completely apart. Both have happy endings and both are in my opinion, well made......

AWESOME Movie :)

 

FYI, if anyone didn't know, the trans star Michelle Hendley has her own Youtube channel.  I love it.  She posts sporadically, but it's always interesting and sometimes very funny.

Yes, I own the DVD.  I ordered it the minute it was available...

On a slightly funny note, I recommended the film to a cis-female co-worker.  She liked it, but her comment was,"Why didn't they cast a "real" transgender in the lead?"...  She thought Michelle was a cis-female made to look trans with "special effects" :)

      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. 
    • Kirsten
      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.

      @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
