I have heard a story of a college professor giving his students a final essay where the question was why? One kid responded why not? And got an A. The answer to why for the majority of the peeps in this world is god or religion. Otherwise there would be no good reason to be alive. If there is no after life, then I assume that all of us will fade into nothing. All our hopes dreams friends familly houses cars dogs cats loves hates EVERYTHING! Will be gone in a matter of relatively short amount of time. If there is no religion or belief in ones life, the answer to why would USUALLY ( this is a key word for all the people without religion on this site) fear. Why else would someone resist death so ferociously to stay in this place where the majority will likely hate you for who u are. I believe that I will be reborn, therefore this gives me a reason to live well. If this were not the case, and all we do is fade into nothing then I would prefer to have never been born. Simply I would have never existed so I would have never suffered.

If I have offended anyone here then I am very sorry! This is just my answer to a question that has plagued every person on this earth at least once.

Hugz and luv, Charlotte

Why?

My usual response to any question is, "I'm sorry."

It usually works.

Why?

By Sally Michelle Jackson

The philosophers ask why

While looking at the sky

The scientists ask how

And want to know it now

The historians ask when

And keep that chapter open

The anthropologists ask who

And find old bones and call her Sue

But when all is said and done there comes a single clause

The answer to all above, simply stated is always just because.

Love ya,

Sally

Charlotte, that's a great story. Reminds me of this professor I had for a logic class a few semesters back.

Sally, great poem, as always.

I think I'm gonna wait and see where this thread is going before I decide whether post on the question. (This whole post is kind of meta, like Lizzy's thread about the thread on depression) (I'll stop now) ;)

WHY?

--Because there are so many delicious things we have yet to eat or sniff out down here!!

--Because they will ALWAYS make a new Gundam within 5 years time

--Because the interwebs beckons

--Because platypus are a weird and wonderful animal

--Because who else would clean the litter box?

--Because there are people out there who would do a lot for a Klondike Bar!

--Michael

Kia Ora Lizzy,

:rolleyes:W=twenty third letter of the alphabet H=eighth letter of the alphabet Y=twenty fifth letter of the alphabet...in total =WHY ;)

Or [i know you didn't want a possible philosophical answer but I just couldn't resist it ;) ] ...A one word Christian answer 'GOD' or from a Buddhist 'KARMA'... both are answers to your question WHY...

In a way, it is true. Most Christians that I have met believe in an absolute truth and therefore, the answer to all their why's are able t be answered with because's :rolleyes:

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, My Lung.  I think you may well be our first member from Vietnam, so that makes you extra special.  Please ask any questions you wish, and join in any of the conversations.  We will help as much as we can.  BTW, your English is excellent!   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
    • Carolyn Marie
      My goodness, that is one of the worst things I've heard @Laura76, and I've been here a long time.  So needlessly cruel and heartless.  Born-again Christian?  Christ would be appalled.  There is nothing Christian about what your family is doing to you.  I'm so sorry.  😢   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Thanks @Jani  I just received a reply email from my ex in response to mine thanking her for driving all the way up here from her home to see my wife and I, and of course, for the nice vase of flowers she brought us.  She wrote that since her visit she has come up with more questions and will be compiling them and will ask at a future date..lol  It looks like she is really trying to learn and understand me though.  That’s more than I expected out of it but it was part of my intention of having her over for dinner.   Susan R🌷

      This is terrible.  How can someone that is suppose to love you be so mean.  I’m sorry it is like that’s for you.  😢
    • Robin68
      ❤️ My Lung I was very timid here also and did not speak up for a time. I was like Shawnaleigh. I have learned this is a very safe place and you are very welcome here! Your English is excellent! I live in an area where many Vietnamese have settled in the United States. I look forward to reading more of your comments!   Hugs! ❤️   Robin

      Today was coming out more today and it was time.When I was 15,I questioned myself if I was really a woman from the inside and knew the answer was yes.So far good at work and even with my wife Nikki.My mom and 3 younger sisters,did take it good.I knew I wanted to go farther sometime later in my life.Did start seeing a therapist last month and decided to do this transition with no hormones,surgically.Even went to my first consultation today having a body contouring surgery,ffs and breast augmentation.Good news it's going to happen on March 2nd changing my life around in a good way.Nikki is going to be there for support,has always said she has liked me as Adrianna more.I turn 41 next month and want to see family and friends see me as male before I become Adrianna for good.

      I was involved in an attempt to get a trans meeting going in New Hope PA a few years ago.  Unfortunately there were not enough folks in our area, and while some drove a long distance to attend at times it was only one or two of us too often. You are certainly in an area with a larger population and bigger trans community so hopefully that won't be a problem.    The TGAA meetings on Zoom are basically the same as any other meeting.  For a great many people it is the only place they can share about issues they face as trans folks.  we have a literature study program, a Big Book Study, a speaker discussion and a topic discussion meeting.    I have found that the Hazeldon publication "Glad Day", which is covering issues the GLBTQ community faces,  often brings on good discussions.   Hugs,   Charlize

      When my grandchildren asked what name to call me, I asked them to suggest a nice name they could pick that wat they know it will always be unique to me.  They came up with "Maddie." Their born-again religious mother however told them immediately while I was present to never talk about me, or ask me about transitioning my gender.  When my older sisters were told about my new nickname they said my grandchildren should be calling me, "Grandpa sicko," "Confused Grandpa," "Idiot Grandpa," or "Maddie is the insane Grandpa." (so much for sibling support....)

      Another story from products from China... I ordered a hoodie for my sister, it was too small. So I reordered a larger size from the same company, the item they sent said it was two sizes larger than the original size I ordered, but when we compared the two hoodies side by side, the first smaller one was larger than the replacment XXL size that we just ordered.  The larger size was was the first "Large" size, and was larger than the XXL size. As previously stated be VERY cautious when ordering from China, especially vendors that do not refund, or replace.

      Thanks for the warm weIcome! While it's true that I aim to misbehave, I've read the rules and promise to keep my misbehaving elsewhere!

      Early in my transition whenever anyone says anything about me and shaving, I would ask them if they are willing to shave my face each morning for me. Of course they wouldn't so, I would always respond with,  "you can do whatever you want with your face, let me decide what do to with mine."
