Possible job change.

Recommended Posts

When I started to consider transition one of my biggest fears was transition in my current company. It is not exactly the most open and friendly environment to undergo transition in. I quietly started looking around for one that has a better culture for its employees and I think I found it!

 

Just wrapped up my final interview and one of the questions they asked was how will you handle having a transgender woman as one of your direct reports? This question warmed my heart and come to find out I will indeed have just that. The company has very progressive policies around gender and sexuality. Especially when you consider our Midwest location. 

 

I figure that making the switch now then slowly starting my transition at work down the road will be much more comfortable there. The best part is I get to stick with Frontline leadership! I love helping to impact the careers of others and the position is perfect. 

 

Feeling better today than I have in a while!

 

Hugs!🤗

The concept that you managed to find a company that not only has an openly trans woman in a position of power, but also puts the thought and time in to make sure that potential hires aren't going to cause trouble over it, is probably one of the most inspiring things a person can start their day to. I hope you get to have a lot of chipper mornings with these people.

Today marks the end of my time with my current employer and I will be starting on Monday with the new one. It's an exciting change to say the least! I'm so thankful that I was able to find a company that is open minded to our community. Wish me luck!!!

 

Great benefits too!

I transitioned in retirement but certainly can understand how great it must feel to be with an employer who will offer acceptance and hopefully support.  That is certainly good news.

Thank you for the warm thoughts Charlize! This is so important to me. I've been living life full time every where except work and family get togethers. I'll be taking my time with coming out at work as I feel it is important to show my value as an employee first. 

 

I'll be starting HRT in the next couple of months as well so this should help me move things along. 

 

Big hugs!

Congratulations Jennylynn!  It sounds like you found a good place.  Fining a place like that can be difficult.  Before I left my last company, I had a total of 5 trans employees.  Must have been something if the water.  LOL

Thank you Briana! I know it has become more common for both mtf and ftm to come out but to be honest since coming out with my wife I have met so many trans people! It was a bit of a shock.

Yesterday I filled out an application for part time employment for a company that is trans friendly. I talked to the HR manager about being trans and was told that not only is she fine with that, but they already have two trans employees working there.

      Ugh I hate that. I can’t tell you how many times I hear Michael at work and I turn my head. There’s like 5 michaels in our garage too. So it happens a good bit. And it’s never me. Lol
    • VickySGV
      I can see an application of this theory at work in the murder rates of Trans women in non-white racial and ethnic communities where masculinity is given special status and narrow definition.  The same is true even in geographic regions where general "male privilege" is held higher than female status.  It is that male privilege that is currently on display and excuses allegations of sexual force against women.  
    • Jani
      Great.  Yes soon your old name will be unfamiliar and you won't become alert every time you hear it.     Jani
    • SugarMagnolia
      Yes, it gets easier and easier every day which is what I'd hoped for. I'm still getting used to people calling me Julie at work, though. It seems completely normal in the rest of my life, but I didn't realize how surprising it would sound coming from my co-workers. Its such great blend of being surprised to hear it and being relieved/happy to not have to hide. ❤️

      There are two forms for obtaining passports, the original and renewal.  For some changes you need to use the original form even though you have a current valid passport.  The lady at the office who took mine said I had the wrong form until she realized I needed the gender marker changed.  So read the instructions carefully.  Best of luck.   Jani

      I would always prefer they err on the side of caution.  Years ago a guy I worked with had shoulder surgery and never came out of the anesthesia.  He was young and healthy.  it was so sad.  We never know how our bodies will react to it.   You'll be fine and your day will come.    Jani

      Thank you very much.  I need to get my passport or update my BC cause I found out that the state of AZ when flying, the TSA will no longer accept our licenses next year and we will we need to use our passports for TSA or get a second special federal ID card to fly out of AZ.
    • Briana
      Hi Mickey,   I can certainly understand your frustration.   That has to be a total let-down.   Hopefully you can get things rescheduled quickly.    While you may have thought the swelling was "not that bad" in your legs, any swelling would be something to note and consider preop/pre-anesthesia.  While the anesthesiologist may have been overly cautious, he's also keeping your safety in mind.  Anesthesia can take a left turn very quickly.  People tend to think that surgery is very exciting as it's portrayed on TV - constant motion and drama.  Generally it's hours of routine boredom punctuated occasionally by a few moments of sheer terror.  That "terror" is generally when people have an unexpected bad reaction to the anesthesia.    Best of luck!

      The problem is mostly re-enforced with those suffering from conservatosis. Conservatosis is very hard to cure, steady doses of truth can help. Unfortunately we have a society that feeds on a conservative propaganda machine, and that helps keep the hate machine rolling.   It's a terrible condition of the mind, it starts when your always afraid, step out of line, the man comes and takes you away.
    • MaryMary
      that's a great article I think. That's good to have a fresh perspective (for me at least). It will maybe help me better deal with those people
    • CyndiRae
      Yes that sounds like it would work, there are certain words required on the letter from Dr, same requirements as SSA, stating you have completed the transition from M to F for example. I did mine 5 years ago, and since my previous passport was still valid in my old name/gender, I did not need to present a birth certificate to prove citizenship (that's what they really care about these days !).   C -
    • Amy LeBlanc
      Thank You CyndiRae.  Would my original Endocrinologist letter that I needed for the DMV and SS office work?     Lots of Love   Amy
    • CyndiRae
      This info sounds correct Amy for name change, there is a 2nd part of this and that is the gender change on the passport, I am assuming you want the "F" for "Federally Female 😃". That part requires a physician's letter.   Good luck   C -
