Minnesota School Survey

Recommended Posts

I just listened to one of the survey takers on NPR and found the relative high percentage of gender questioning students interesting.  

It is worth a look. That also question thew amount of bullying students experience due to gender presentation.

 Sorry i couldn't get a proper link to post.

I read about this in my local newspaper. The article also noted that it was a signal for others in our society to catch up with young people. Young people will create future social norms and will send waves of change throughout our country. Very encouraging. I wish there was evidence of it today!

      Son and I had the talk tonight.He came up and told me that he wanted to talk to me about something.I said sure,it was in his room and was surprised what he asked me.Asked me if I thought he had an inner female side to him.I looked at him and said that is his decision.Since meeting Adrianna for the first time on Saturday for the first time,has thought he had an inner female side to him too.Told him this is his decision to make and knows I will support him no matter what.Plus he did take my advice very well knowing I was right.He is 15 years and is old enough to make the right decisions in his life,I don't have to make them for him.Then we discussed it more and asked him what would be his female name if he ever decided to dress as female part time,picked the name Stacy.Then he made his decision up after I asked what would be his decision.Looked at me and said he has one.I thought that was cool,wants to surprise his twin sister on their birthday in March.They are close,she has always wanted a sister in her life too.I am supportive of his decision,going to take him to where I get fitted for bras and get him fitted for the right breast forms including bras this weekend.Good thing is we don't have to buy a wig,he has long hair that he loves we can quickly style.I also have long hair too.I am proud of him and is glad I am being supportive.

      Devin townsends empath album,of all the albums hes made so far this is my favourite, some really emotional moments for me. My favourite track is here comes the sun,the last song on the album on the compendium track,then probably genesis.

      Also, when looking for what suits you, I would -now stay with me here - go to Goodwill. It is an easy, affordable way to figure out what looks good on you, and really lets you develop a personal style.

      I have a pretty good eye for fashion, and really enjoy it as an art form however, when it comes to how I dress, baggy tough jeans, a t-shirt and a hoodie is more than enough for me to look in the mirror and say "my man!" I am also far too messy to keep up a nice wardrobe; I keep all of my clothes in a pile on top of my bed. My cats like sleeping in it, and it is so cute. But seriously Spencer, if you are looking for young men's fashion, it starts and ends with the hoodie. There is only 1 guy I know who doesn't wear them daily, and that is because he wears sweatshirts instead. What type you wear can say a lot about you (as crazy as that sounds), and you can pair them with a winter coat, a jean jacket, whatever makes it feel more you.

      I suppose this is because she sees you as dead now?  Sad that she cannot see past the thin outer skin to the core of your life, which I can only imagine has been fine up until now.  Do your best to stay happy and healthy Donna.  This will be your reward.      Jani

      Hi megan,its nice to hear your story, when i think of someone transitioning i dont necessarilly think of them as wanting to become something, with the proper frame of mind youre only merely cultivating whats already there,i dont know, i have a lot to learn, i just thought it might help a little,be well.

      Thanks Jackie,  I think their logic is that God made you a male and you are going against His will and his intention.  My logic is that birth defects happen and He allows them as he allows an imperfect world. Life would be boring and we would not have a need for God if everything was perfect.  If you want perfect go for heaven.    So when you are TG, God, in my humble opinion accepts that and DOES NOT want you to worry about His judgment with that issue and He IS kind and loving and has been to me.  God is not the problem, Evangelical Christians are and they are in the minority among Christians.  More and more denominations are arriving at accepting LGBT as "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR" trumps all other issues.    So as to my wife, she was made that way too, believing what she does and she can't help it any more than we can.  She finds comfort in believing all the rules and that makes her feel safe, so I love her and don't hold it against her and I feel bad about how this is affecting the last years of life that she planned on.  I am 74 and she told me she is going to become a widow prematurely.    I am grateful that she is not trying to destroy me the way some women do when getting a divorce.  Hugs to you too.  Donna

      Eh, close enough. 😋   Makes me cold just thinking about it.   Hugs!

      haha I wear jeans sometimes but mostly shorts, my legs don't get cold and I have gym first period. Everyone calls me stereotypical heterosexual!! Clearly not the complete case haha
    • Jackie C.
      You really don't. Seriously, women dress for other women. As long as you look like you're clean and take a little pride in your appearance, you're good. It might be different now, but when I was your age peacocking just got you funny looks.   OK, the shorts are a little weird. It's freaking cold out. At least it is here.   Hugs!

      Yes, it can be intense, especially the lip.  Hopefully the clinic is giving you some soothing gel to use for afterwards.  It helps reduce the incidence of acne, which I developed during my treatments.  Unfortunately I can no longer recall the name of the product.   Carolyn Marie

      wo-  Maybe I should look into fashion myself! I am all hoodies and shorts! I also wear blacked out nike shoes so I need some fashion beat into me haha

      As a woman, how does she make ends meet?  I understand that some of these are in deed silly when you step back a bit.  But it does show the level of misunderstanding people have about transgender folks!  All of those questions would seem weird if asked to her, but I totally get her point.  I think it will be a nice visit where you can dispel any and all rumors  (and show off your dust free home!)   As to whether she missed something way back when; well they do say love is blind!     Jani
