Trans Woman Symbol Idea

Recommended Posts

Ellora

While thinking about the upcoming San Diego Pride 2019 coming up in Three Weeks, the "Trans Woman Symbol" is a combination of a male and female symbol(s). I guess thats what it is, thats what I have seen. There are many different variations, and I was looking for a simple one, cause I would also like to adapt the idea so I could use it with my Paracord hobby.

 

I wanted to ask what anyone might think, maybe offer suggestions from past or present experiences, and just thoughts. 

The "Anchor" has the Circle, the short bar across the longer bar, capped off with a pair of barbed flukes. 

If this is already a symbol for a trans woman, then great! If not I was going to start using it as one. Maybe even paint them pink and or purple. 

I really dont care to add the male symbol attached to the symbol i would like to use for myself, but until then, I am searching for one that I am truly happy with.  This might be the one, it is still in the planning stages.

Thanks for any and all suggestions and comments!

I was just reading about the Anchor and Rudder. 

 

 

"What Is the Meaning of Rudder Symbol?

Rudder symbol symbolizes the people who keep the flow of life and control of fate in their hands. 

"Meaning of Using Anchor and Rudder Symbols Together

When anchor and rudder symbols are used together, they represent to be happy due to the strong bound you have and happy bounds are preferred with free will. It symbolizes the fact that the purpose is achieved consciously and freely. It refers to be determined in order to continue the happiness."

I don't know why, but my stupid comedian wanna be mind went right to thinking something like this would go great on a t-shirt that says "Sexy Boat Time!"

Before she died two years ago I knew Holly Boswell who created the Trans symbol which was intended for all Trans people across the spectrum.  Her partner still has the original drawing which was made for a conference involving Trans people 25+ years ago.  Holly  drew it really in a bit of exasperation  during a planning meeting of the board of the convention to get some other people to calm down and come together to get the conference (which continues yearly) to be inclusive and focused on the details that concerned ALL Trans people wherever they fell on the spectrum.  The drawing did the job but still with some grumbling which is typical of the Trans community even today.  She would not be objecting to symbols for the separate identities, but that was not her intention at the time.

I thought of the idea after I saw her work. I was looking for a charm to make some paracord bracelets for Pride and in general, and got the idea to use the anchor. The anchor is already used for other paracord bracelet projects, so it will work perfectly. 

Thank you for the history behind this wonderful symbol! 

I found the symbol on Amazon, along with some different styles of anchors. I also like the anchor with the rudder, cause of the extra meaning. I probably will try something with all of the symbols, and post them here when I make them.

      I tear up at just about anything even remotely sad. Even some sad music can get the water works going. I’m okay with it though. Feels good to be stretching my emotional range.

      I cry at the ending scene in LOTR-Return of the King.  When he sees Arwin.  And it continues when he kneels before the four hobits and tells them “you kneel for no one”.   I lost it before now I’m a wreck.  Lol

      The other I watched a documentary on elementary particules and physics and I cried loll

      I freakin cry over commercials!   Movies and TV series with sad or tear jerking scenes plow me right under.  My wife laughs at me so much over this.   I admit I like the freedom to do so now.  I don’t have to hold it in or hide it anymore.   😭😢😉

      I think you are doing great with your makeup.  I’m very inexperienced but it looks really good to be.   It amazes me that there are still places that still are homophobic.   It’s a bit out of your way but the University of Vermont is extremely tolerant and supportive toward LBGTQ and the pay well too.  Vermont is a wonderful place to transition so we will take you!!!

      I always used to tear up watching emotional movies.  Now I do so even more.  The nice thing is that I no longer have to feel self-conscious about it.

      Well that sucks. Hopefully you can find another way forward. I don't know what the situation is in Arkansas, but here it's legal to discriminate against trans people. Our colleges are pretty tolerant though. May you find an employer that doesn't suffer from recto-cranial inversion.   Hugs!

      Well, I finally got the talk by my principal due to two calls from unidentified females voicing concerns about me wearing makeup while giving GED tests. He said he personally doesn't care how I choose to express myself. But with attendance being as low as it is, he really doesn't want to create any more variables that might threaten the school's budgetary futures by pushing away new or current students.    I knew it was coming, but I let myself think it'd be much further down the line. Yeah, it hurts, and yes, I'm doing what I've taught myself not to ruminate and spiral back into depression. But dang it...I was finally feeling happy about myself. Oh, well....just keep repeating "progress isn't always linear".

      I always tear up at the end of the movie, “Far and Away”.  The ending pulls on my heartstrings in a happy way.  But recently my wife and I watched “Boy Meets Girl” and for whatever the reason...it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had a good cry even though it was probably not the most realistic plot line for a movie.   Susan R🌷   LOL, I noticed I had already mentioned “Far and Away” in a previous post on this same thread back in Oct.  oh well!  It’s hard to keep track of all the posts I make.

      Well, I've bathed and applied a generous amount of baby powder to prevent chaffing....now it's time to put the rest of me on. Weight gain to me is putting all that silicon back on. Weight loss is taking it off at the end of the day. What HELL we girls put ourselves through just to look nice. Go figure?   Be safe. Be Smart. You've gotta be STRONG to carry ON. (An extra 20 pounds? Thank god I didn't opt for a ridiculously  bigger cup size, or butt size.)

      so far no movies has made me cry at least not fully cry but some has made some tears come out
    • Donnie_1961
      Work with what you've got. And if you don't GOT then go out and BUY IT!   Be safe. Be Smart.

      That's one of the government's reasons for not putting an X marker on passports, but mostly "it'll cost too much to implement those changes" which is demonstrably incorrect. But personally, I would assume that's just one of the many considerations the individual should make when planning international travel. Some places are hostile, others (like Saudi Arabia) reportedly refuse entry to anyone with an X marker on their passport. So, that's kinda convenient, I guess? Incidentally, I've done some investigating since reading and posting this, and it seems that if your state's drivers license permits an X marker, then your Real ID will, too.  But I know that there are some people with a severe enough level of dysphoria or emotional triggers that having a gender marker on an ID that's different from how they identify/present will cause distress or out them as trans. So, as it stands, it's probably just a trade-off that the individual will have to make for themselves.
