Hello,

i’m a MtF pre-op university student, majoring in special education. I love kids so much but am aware I can’t have biological ones.

I will be moving to Canada to work in my career but what hit me like a brick wall was the fear of being fired or bullied by co-workers for changing to a woman. I’ll be dealing with young ones and I do not want to cause trouble. Is it risky for me to work before transitioning?

I can't say for certain, but Canada is gaining in its acceptance of Trans people so your transition may come off just fine. I suspect that like here in the U.S. that it varies by school district in the public sector. Special Education is a very needed field, and is rewarding for its members.

Congrats, Tara, on your choice of careers.  I admire you for choosing special ed.  I suggest researching the trans rights laws in whichever province you're thinking of moving to.  But from what I've read in recent years, most of the provinces seem pretty forward thinking and have put a lot of protections into law and regulations.  That doesn't guarantee you'll be treated fairly, but at least you'll have legal recourse if you're not.  I wish you all the best.

      Hi Rory! and Welcome! You definitely found a great community to join. We're all at different stages ... for me, a very late in life awakening and just getting out of the starting gate.  Definitely looking forward to whatever you have to share❣️

      Squire was a lead player and was amazing. One other underrated bass player I  think is John Entwhistle from the Who. If you really listen to, his was excellent.   A great young Australian girl,bass player i really love in the past 5-10 years is Tal Wilkenfeld. Shay

      I am totally with you on this.  What matters to me is that I can be myself without hiding, and that people accept me as I am.  If they don't guess that I am trans, that's great.  If they do guess but treat me well, that is fine, too.  If they are mean to me, that is not fine, but it hasn't happened yet in four years.   I don't pass on the telephone.  Someone on the phone will ask to speak to Kathy, and I'll say that's me.  There will be a pause as the person processes that information: "Deep voice.  Smoker, maybe?  Trans, maybe?  Oh well, we have business to do..."  It would be nice to pass on the phone, but you can't have it all.  I'm a woman with a deep voice.  So what?  If I join a choir, I'll sing baritone.  That is the only time it would be relevant.   The main reason that I transitioned was because I was tired of the effort it took to pass as a man.  What I like about the new me is that it is effortless.

      I didn't realize I had so much to say about this topic until I typed it all out! Hopefully it all makes sense though

      I use this and can average into the 220s with effort.  But I think the sweet spot for me is in the 190s with a soft breathy resonance.  Training muscle memory is slowly helping my voice during real interactions. Plus I now know more about Dorian Gray

      Good memories of a woman I lived with when I was 20-22.  I crossdressed with her from day one.  Everything was new to me, and she was the first other person I really trusted with this. She showed me how to put on stockings, bras, makeup, etc. She was wise and shared with me knowledge of about sex, trans, escorting, porn,  and LIFE....only some of which I could handle.  We shopped and walked about and wore alot of short skirts.  We got in some trouble together, usually her fault We were both size 4 and shared our clothes.  And envied each other's attributes at times. Sounds like heaven, but it wasn't.  But still a treasured memory.

      I had this friend about two years ago, very amazing girl with a really open mind, and she worked part time at this costume shop. So after having come clean with them and her boyfriend, her parents and the tenant in their back yard flat who is also her band member, they all started calling me Lynn (her sister's name is Caitlyn, and they call her Kate so I got Lynn) and referring to me by girl pronouns, which by itself was rather amazing. So one weekend she invites me over early the morning, asks me if I'd like to get out of the house to dress up a little and I assume it's at their house so I shave nice and clean and then head over. I got there and Kate is there, and I learn that she's actually a makeup artist and has unpacked all her stuff in preparation for me specifically. So she asks about my favourite colours and spends almost an hour on making me look spectacular and refusing that I look in the mirror until she's done, which already blew my mind when I saw it. I thought that was the ultimate.  Then my friend brought up all the outfits and costumes and fantasies I've discussed with her again while gathering her stuff as if they wanted to go out, and then drags me to the car, which made me nervous beyond measure.  She had arranged to do some spring cleaning after hours at the shop on that weekend so she could have the keys and we could all go try in different thins and take photos in costumes.  We spent majority of the day there.  That is my all time favourite memory. I also went to one of her shows as myself after that at a little bar, they had a ladies night special which I was granted to partake in. And I didn't get trouble, looks or lip when using the rest room which was a close second.  Life can be real good sometimes.  I miss my friend.

      Yes AND Parsons together from the 5th row?!!!   When Squire takes the lead position in The Fish is an old fav.  When I first heard that I'd never heard a bass played like that. 💥
