Hi everyone! 

 

My name is Rory, I'm a 21 year old trans girl living in central Pennsylvania. I started my transition socially just over 3 years ago, and I've been on hormones since last October. Jackie Rabbit's YouTube channel brought me here, and I guess I'm looking for a community of other trans folks because since I can't be with my regular support network because of COVID. I have a wonderful group of people that I get to live with when I'm at college, and now that I'm back home there's still a few people outside my family that I still keep in touch with, but they don't always understand everything that's going on with me and my transition. I'll probably put together some other posts in the appropriate forums about my experiences with hrt, passing, and how my sexuality has changed in relation to my gender. This is getting long now, but I look forward to interacting more with the lovely people on this forum 💜

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❣️

Velkommen Rory

This is a great support to have in corner. You will find many ideas, informations and opinions here. Many of us are here by way of Jackie Rabbit's vids. I envy your age for transitioning. For many of us life got in our way and it was not possible to get here until later and late in our lives. So read, comment and post.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! From what I've seen so far on this forum you all seem like lovely people. As far as what Erikka said about my age, when I came out I really felt like I had no other choice if I wanted to keep moving forward in my life. I know not everyone has the same support network and resources to transition while they're younger, and I recognize the privilege I have in that sense. Sometimes I find myself wishing I had come out sooner, but doing so won't change the hand I was dealt. I look up to all of you no matter when you came out, because that takes courage no matter the age.

      Boston was Mother's Milk and Middle Earth are the two I remember.   Like Chicago was Chicago Transit Authority and before that The Next Big Thing.   Blue Oyster Cult originally used Soft White Underbelly   And I don't even want to tell you what Kiss considered using....oy...   2 other interesting things are what the names Steely Dan and 10cc actually mean. Not allowed by our rules to tell you here.
    • Jani
      I do know the City of Boston was called Tremontaine before being changed.  There is a major street named Tremont now that runs along Boston Common (city park).

      The younger crowd have this need to be a part of something or a group of people just like them. I have worked with some younger trans teens and its all about belonging. Me personally have always just done my own thing and never worried about what others think. Back in high school I never felt the need to align myself to any clique or group.
    • MaryMary
      They don't understand their rules neither, lolll that's very funny
    • Jani
      You're probably correct Mary.  Its all in the eyes of the beholder.  I admit I don't understand the rules either.
    • Jani
      Generally we're raised not thinking about gender, its just thrust upon us.  As we in the TG community think about it a lot while others not so much.  
    • MaryMary
      that's why passing is such a mystery to me. I don't think I have control over that. Others kind of use rules I don't always understand. The only key is to focus on knowing myself and being myself and not really care about the spectrum... or at least as little as possible. My point system is me clumsily trying to understand with an algorythm because I'm a programmer, lolllll

      Freehold I think it was

      Without cheating I do have to say I don't recall.  I guess the data bank does get clogged sometimes!    Thanks for the explanation of Half Speed Master Cyndee.  $20 was pricey back then.  
    • Teri Anne
      It is a very interesting subject indeed. So many feel they have to have fit a certain  slot along the gender spectrum and there are just so many slots that are different that it can be very confusing to new people dealing with gender issues. That spectrum is so vast you may never find that perfect place where you "fit" in.I think thats where many have so much trouble  dealing with gender issues.  
    • Shay
      I remember those half speed masters. Never had one though.Trivia question what band name or names did Boston use b4 Boston
    • Jani
      An interesting concept!  I am sure it is true in many situations as some women can pull off uber masculine looks and still be seen as feminine.
    • Cyndee
      Thanks for your question Jani, CBS records made a limited number of Boston's first album cut with half speed mastering, released in 1980, and sold them to collectors back then at a premium (~ $ 20). They were cut at half speed, just as google explains below. Last I checked on E bay they were fetching about a hundred dollars today. They were sought after for their superior dynamic range on a vinyl medium.......   What exactly is half-speed mastering? It's a vinyl cutting process whereby the disc-cutting lathe for an LP is run at half the speed – so for an album that would be 16 and two thirds, which is half of 33 and a third – and the master source is run at half the speed as well.

      Yes, I think I agree. The special thing to me is that I started thinking the 90% + was a question of physic and looks but with time it's crazy how you realize that self confidence and the energy you emit is so important. I swear sometimes I go to the local gaz pump and the other person sees me from the back... with a huge winter coat on and they say "madame". Why? lol It's not because I wear makeup or my clothes or even my voice or my hairs. I'm wearing a huge coat, still have broad shoulders and most of the time when that happen I'm even wearing the hoody part of the coat on my head lol And they say "madame" ? Why? it's a mysterious thing to me.    I often picture a point system in my head with everything that goes with it. I think that if I make a minimum amount of efforts I can reach the number of points to pass but I cannot have a buzz cut and still pass. Many cis woman can do that because they have enough points elsewhere (confidence, energy, looks, skeletal structure, etc)...   anyway, fascinating topic.

      This. My therapist's daughter tried doing the FTM transition but after maybe four years they (meaning therapist's daughter) decided they were never going to be masculine enough so they decided to do the non-binary approach and it has worked with much more success. Just be yourself and if you don't fall within the lines then there's not a place for you too. It is our duty to be ready to politely educate people.
