The YouTube channel is very important to me. I mainly made it for my mental well being as despite having people on this site I struggle to find people to speak too IRL so at least here when I speak to myself other people can see too. 

 

I'll be posting more videos soon. :) I hope I don't run out of topics to discuss.

Hi Sophie,

 

The YouTube videos are a great idea.  Not only will they help you, but they provide other people with a realistic insight into what it means to be a trans person.

 

I look forward to future instalments.

 

Robin.

Thank you @Robin I'm going to try to keep up with weekly videos and updates regarding the process and more importantly my frame of mind through each section.

Sophie, when you do your videos, don't just think of it as speaking to yourself. I promise you people will be watching, some from within the TransCloset, some for pure curiosity, and others for HATE. The best tip I can give you about the HATERS is: Block them, don't take them to heart. You will need to develop thick skin for the HATERS. The sad thing about putting yourself out there for others to see, haters are more vocal and seem to out number your supporters. The truth is that you have more people supporting you than you know because they're afraid to speak up. I'm looking forward to watching you grow.

 

Best wishes, stay positive and safe.

@Mmindy I've not had any haters yet. 100% likes on everyday video so far which I'm very impressed by. However, I'm prepared for any hate. 

 

Internet hate I can handle, I've been on the internet beat for a long time. It's the IRL hate I'm concerned about but I'm sure as long as I have friends going through similar issues IRL then I'll get through it just with that support.

I uploaded a new video about what my biggest fears are about transitioning

Just caught up on your videos.  You're amazing, Sophie.  I could never do that on YouTube and I'm further along.  That first one had me in tears.  So proud!  Keep them coming.

Brilliant Sophie!

I know it took a lot of courage to get that out here but you did it!

@Tori M awh sorry. It's usually me crying in between the cuts, it's often times so hard to hold it all together whilst I make these videos. 

 

@Just Lee I'll need some more of that courage to tell the rest of the family but im all out right now.

You have the courage to endure, which is the strongest of all.

Thanks for sharing! I'm a bit late to the party here, but I love youtube trans blogs (even if sometimes they make me feel so unbearably envious I could just burst!) I'll definitely check it out!

      I generally go for the romantic and edgy styles, leather and lace, of clothes. The 50s style dress with a leather jacket. The make-up with the hair all done. I love all of that. But, you know it is? Ultra feminine. I love it, but its not all of me.    I want that, but adding in the more masculine parts. Unfortunately, I don't know how to add that part.   Most tutorials on dressing more androgynous talk about wearing a binder (cant hide that under the dresses I like) or cutting your hair short (just not me).   I have been underthinking this for years. Knowing I'm not really looking how I want cause I don't know how to. It is nice to hear that one day I'll look back and see the obvious solution, but hindsight is 20/20.

      I feel for you @Sydneyblue. That hurts and I can empathize with the situation. My oldest daughter said the exact same thing about me to the second oldest daughter. It got back to me and it really stung for awhile. She is  s l o w l y  coming around though. She came over and spent the day with my wife and I and we all had a wonderful time. Things can change if you can stay positive and continue to love her as you do. I think initially some of those who accept me now had a similar initial reaction as my oldest (I know of at least one other for sure) but they now understand what life was like before transitioning and now today and they can see the improvement and happiness in my life. Stick by your g/f in her doubt and indifference...it takes time and good communication. I hope things will get better for you in your relationship soon.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I wonder if the same thing will happen to me? Scratches head!

      The Trans group that was suppose to happen today didn't happen.  I'm not sure what happen i tried email the contact person. I think its because it my only outlet other then here. Why do i need so much support ?   I went over my resume today and fixed some errors i had on it and reposted it. I have alot of time on my hands and i want to get back to work. I think that might give me some goals to start saving for more surgeries. I took a more current pic of me for me Profile pic. I finally felt like i could do that post ffs surgery.    I dont know what to do about my girlfriend. She doesnt like me as a girl/women. She says its weird. It really hurts me. She is all i have right now and with this pandemic you cant really go anywhere and there is nothing to do. Im glad i dont live with her.  We have sex anymore more me. She gets mad at me because we dont anymore.   I just need to reach out today. Hopefully i get feedback

      I just got my ballots the other day. Yes. Ballots...plural. Despite talking to several people in Everett headquarters for our county, they still keep sending me one ballot with my birth name and one with my correct name. This nonsense has continued since June 2019 when I officially changed it with the county headquarters. Susan R🌷

      What do you like to wear ? I like Computer games and such so i have gaming shirts that i like. I think you are over thinking it. i use to hate hearing this from people when they told me to be myself. I didnt know who i was but honestly i did and didnt know it. How do you want to feel ?

      @RhondaS I loved going topless around the house but now that I'm out as a trans woman  I'm forbidden from not wearing a top. I keep getting told women don't go around topless. I keep insisting that it's 2020 and we woman are at the point where we should be able to go around top and braless now days if a man can. Still no go. I also try the if women can dance topless for tips that I can too. But nope.. Lol

      So I have always been so confused with how to look androgynous the way that I want to. I'm non-binary/gender fluid. While I'd say that my gender identity has a more male leaning, I also know that my gender expression is more feminine. As such I am constantly trying to figure out how to make that into a look, I can't figure it out. I need something that makes the more feminine side happy at the same time as the more masculine side.    If I could ask a genie to make me look exactly how I want, I'd say long hair with a full beard and romantic edgy clothes. However, I have not been able to find a genie yet and have to look at what is actually possible 🙃. Due to chronic migraines I can't do heavy long hair. I was AFAB and even if I did go on hormone therapy, none of the cis-males in my family can even grow a beard in the first place so its unlikely I would. At least I have my clothes.   With a beard and a flat chest out of reach, still needing to find a masculine element to balance my look, I have tried cutting my hair to a more typical 'man' haircut. However, with no beard and little hair I was almost the exact opposite of how I want to look and I hated it.    I've tried to go the obvious route of looking at how people typically do androgynous looks, but I can only find ones that lean so heavily masculine.    Have any of you had similar experiences? Any chance you've found helpful solutions?    -Rae

      I had my first session of genital electrolysis today. Today I had the hair around the base of the penis treated and on Thursday I will have the perineum treated. I actually found the pain much milder than on my face. My electrologist said most clients find genitals more painful. It was difficult to apply the numbing cream (today I put it on both the perineum and penis because I didn't know how much the electrologist could get done during the appointment). On the perineum I can't see where I'm applying it while I'm applying it. I have to go back and forth between applying and looking in a mirror. Also, walking and sitting cause the cream and plastic wrap to move around so I had to reapply it. In another thread I talked about the possibility of getting erect https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/81268-electrolysis-while-erect/ . Unfortunately, I did get fully erect at the beginning of my appointment. However, the electrologist didn't react to it or seem offended. Around the beginning, she told me not to get embarrassed and that she's done this many times before. She probably said this before noticing that I was erect. It was while I was on the table without pants but while she was preparing. The erection was the part I found embarrassing. Hopefully being noticeably embarrassed made my electrologist realize that I didn't want the erection. She also found the diagram unclear. It said to clear a strip 2.5 inches wide starting 1 inch above the anus but didn't say how long of an area to clear. I e-mailed my surgeon and hopefully will get a response in time. It's 3 1/2 hours after the end of the appointment and I still feel numb in part of my genitals. It doesn't last nearly that long on my face. I hope it's not a problem. I have the least feeling in the glans of the penis but didn't put any numbing cream on that area. Strange.

      @QuestioningAmber glad you look cute in the outfit.   Sadly that's a feeling I will never experience but I sure am glad for you. 👍 thank you for your kind words about my brother. I wasn't that close but mortality is something that hits closer when one losses a sibling.
