Very Good!

And one more thing to worry about more than transphobia.......no paper towels to pull the bathroom door handle after you've washed your hands! eww!

Brings back a few memories :D - the most irritating to me being the tedium of checking from stall to stall until finding one that has not run out of paper!

Thank you Marcie :)

This thread is a bit old, but I just happened to open it and watch the video. Yes, very funny. I can certainly relate to the toilet paper issue (or absence, thereof :)), an issue which has become more greatly paramount to my life.

While I don't care to dwell on things past, the video and the thread title elicited a past memory. True story....

I had just arrived at work and the ladies room was closed for cleaning. I had to go really, really bad...'twas a great emergency , so I ran into the men's restroom, and into the first stall. [Going in wasn't really that big of a deal, after all I've been going into men's rooms most of my life. Plus myi outfit was a trench coat over my usual work dress (Eddie Bauer slacks & a tailored button-front top). I lowered all the necessary garments and sat down to an unpleasantly damp experience. Reflexively, I cried out in my shock, "Who left the d*****d seat up!" Immediately, after my outcry, I remembered my location. Fortunately for my state of embarrassment, at that moment I was the sole occupant of the men's room.

BUT....The really funny part is when I came out of the restroom. A very agitated Hispanic housekeeper, who obviously spoke little to no English, was practically jumping up and down scolding me with the words, "Mujeres! Mujeres!", while gesticulating furiously at the Ladies room that she had just finished cleaning. [i assume the belted trench-coat and long blonde hair persuaded her that I had lost my way. :blush:]

Anyway, I I apologized, "Perdoneme senora, que era una emergencia.", and quickly took an elevator up to my office.

      Are there any original bits 😂 I would expect that it would be difficult to find original style parts now. That said my yardbrush, which I don't use that often, is probably that old and does still look very good. It further reminds me of the lawnmower which is now getting well toward 40 years old. I have had to repair it a couple of times and it looks and sounds like an old man (lol) but as long as I don't stress it too much it should go on a bit. I dread to think how the bushes in the motor look.   I am the type of person who loves old things as long as they work well enough. New technology is often a turn off!   Tracy

      There’s no requirement to disclose that you will be transitioning. It’s not your hiring manager’s business, nor the lady at the front desk, nor the owner. When you are ready to transition you may do so in states with protections for trans people. There’s a misconception that you’re doing your employer or future employer or hopeful employer wrong by “hiding” your trans status and future transition plans. It doesn’t matter legally or morally. You don’t owe any corporate or private or public institution of alerting them to your plans. Your transition is irrelevant and distracting to the point of the interview. You are consuming the company’s time during an interview. Keep the focus on your qualifications, personality and technical abilities and general competency to fill a need and turn that company a profit.

      It depends on what you’ll present as. Since you’ll be presenting as male then there’s no need to inform them of your trans status at any point of the hiring/interview process. If you plan on transitioning in a year or six months or even 2 months then just be prepared to contact HR once you’re ready to come out to your coworkers and require people call you your chosen name. This way you can avoid unlawful discrimination pre employment as its nearly impossible to prove discrimination on the basis of anything in hiring without a consistent proven track record of certain well qualified minority applicants otherwise denied employment. Usually you can begin presenting as your gender identity without documentation. Another woman here said her job required legal paperwork for them to honor the name change at all. Most people will find their company will honor a name change in email, verbal address, and memos without documentation. Mind you alot of forum members come from all across the globe, so check your laws and company policy.

      I had a lot of bad once, but i had one fun one I was cleaning one of long time customer house. She is a wonderful woman. I been fully out to all my clients for well over 2yrs. She was on the phone with her daughter and  the conversation want like this "Alex is here." she look over at me "I mean Lexi is here. He such a great guy."  Again she looks over at me " I mean she sucha great guy, NOT a GUY.. a Girl. He is such a great Girl." She look over at me again her face a little red " Jesus f chirst!!! SHE IS A SHE  not he, and I love how hard and special he make me feel." she look at me again her face was all red. I could not stop laughing., I yell out " Veronica just hang up the phone before we both  have a heart attack." Love that woman. and when i get  down that moment always make me laugh

      The reference I found was for injectable.

      “I found this in the Pinned thread on the Transgender Forum, titled “Problematic Language.”   “I think one of the big issues comes from within the community itself.  "Boy mode"  "Girl mode"  "boy brain" "girl brain"  "Target Gender" "Preferred Pronouns" and so on. We are not becoming our gender.  We ARE our gender.  We're (some of us) just trying to be cuter versions of our gender “   At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how much you pass and to who. It’s about finding people who acknowledge your competency as a human being to analyze yourself and conclude your gender, even if that means you are one of the other 65.

      Thank you @Jani, after some consideration I came to the same conclusion. I have been on this journey much longer and need to remember that others are still acclimating to the “new normal” 😏

      Mine is injectable.

      I was just about to post this when I saw that @Jani just did, but I'll say it again anyway: Call the GIC now!  The wait lists in the UK are so insane that it will be a couple of years before you get in.  If you call now, you'll have your foot in the door.  That way, if you decide that you are indeed trans, you're on your way and will have less time to wait.  If you decide in the meantime that you are not trans, you can always withdraw from the wait list.

      I bumped into a coworker while opening the door for the restroom. I was going in and he was coming out. He backed up against the door and said “woh I thought you were going to grab my crotch.” I know he thinks I like guys. I was taking back by that comment. My male ego almost kicked in because I felt like telling him to F off. But I kept it cool and just laughed it off. I don’t know how much longer I can ignore his ignorant comments.   Next time I will be ready with a arsonal of comebacks. There is only so much I can take before I snap. I treat people with respect and kindnesses and expect the same in return. No one else at work has a issue with me and I am grateful. He better watch it , these hormones make me fiery...lol

      What I wrote wasn't earth shattering news.  You've written a bit here and it seems obvious to me which direction you need to move.  Call you GIC, the wait list is long I've heard.  It may be a year, and you can always cancel  if things change.  In the meantime talking with others is good but be aware of those who have their own agenda.  You make all the decisions in this.  Its about you and no one else.     Jani
