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:

      Not sure if I’m in the right section or not, but it’s hair-relayed, so I’m hoping do.   Has anyone noticed hair loss after starting spiro? I’ve been on the spiro/estradiol train for almost a month and I’ve noticed an increase in hairs making an “exit” from my head area.   I have debilitating OCD, and sometimes I tend to use a wet wipe, well, almost every where. After a quick couple of passes on my head (OCD sucks, I assure you) I’ve noticed there are hairs in the wet wipe afterward.    I don’t recall seeing this before I started HRT...and my OCD has been at its present level for 3 years.

      Well today...... did not help matters. Minor fender bender at the end of my route and a day full of people making “jokes”.  The really funny ones that involve walking up behind armed security and screaming “give me the f’n money” and lets “pretend like we are going g to grab the money bag and run away”.    To try and look on the bright side, I managed to maneuver to where the other car hit the front of my truck instead of the drivers door. And no one was hurt.    Im going to bed now, hopefully tomorrow will be better.

      Recently I've been following a YouTuber who detransitioned after about a year and a half.  I wonder if anyone knows what was the longest a person had been transitioned for before realizing that they were better off as their birth gender? I imagine it would only take a year or two to come to this conclusion. But has anyone ever been transitioned for, say, 5 or even 10 years or more, before deciding to go back?

      I am in no way a tech person. I had several diff personalities website for my previous occupation, but once i quit that business I deleted all those acc. Frankly don't care if they re appear via some kind off black mail scam either. I have and always had only one FB acc filled only with the people that close to me. Thus when I was ready to tell everyone I just pull the band-aid off and came out on FB. I most say, I had 200 hundred close family and friend before i can out and now its down to like 150. I got some message saying how ungodly it was and a few older relatives that said they did not understand and a couple of what i thought where friend calling me a -awesome person-. But hey it would of taken me weeks and half of my sanity to call or em everyone. So i am happy with my choice.'  Good luck and as always, be safe, BE Proud and KICK ASS

      I came out as non-binary six months after retiring as a senior software engineer, but I can say that at my last company, for whom I worked 11 years, there were two MtF trans engineers.  They held their heads high, were proud but not loud (at least in the workplace), kept their private life private (as was/is entirely appropriate), worked hard, and were treated as equals by co-workers. So, yay!   With all the stress of deadlines, the need to continually keep learning in a fast-changing field, and constant peer review of your code, software engineers are generally very busy, smart cookies, but still are quite varied in their personalities and character.  It was kind of a bell curve, with a few who I wanted nothing to do with, most competent, and a few who were outstanding in many traits (not just coding).   A vital topic is:  how supportive is your company of trans and gender non-conforming people?  Do they quickly put a stop to discriminatory behavior by employees?  Do they provide gender-neutral restrooms?  Do they practice what HR preaches?   If the answers to the above questions are all Yes, then you've found a good place to work and an environment where you'll most likely be allowed to grow in your career.  However, I'll acknowledge that it can be hard to know the actual situation for some of these, as individual issues and cases usually remain private and are not discussed openly.   Regarding inclusivity, you're quite right -- females often must work harder to be heard at meetings, have their ideas championed by a manager, and so on.  It can be lonely!  Not long before I retired, I worked with a (brilliant, junior-grade) female engineer for several years who was based in India, and we developed a good working relationship and talked about our personal lives. She cried during one conversation, saying that I was one of the few engineers who was actually kind to her.  I was saddened to learn that that was the case.  I've certainly known plenty of engineers both male and female who, after years of internalizing the stresses, cash out and find a different career.  For me, it was a very interesting career, but one not without plenty of bumps along the way...and that's outside of gender issues.   Best of luck, Amber!   Hugs,   Astrid

      My general doctor refused to see me since this is related to a surgery and could be considered a complication of it. Got ahold of the nurse of my surgeon and she said it looks like an allergic reaction to the bio oil. It's been 7 days since I used the oil originally and started having the reaction, stopped having fluid drainage the other day and now am left with the worst hives I have ever had. From my shoulder, along the sides of my chest, and down to right above my belly button itches like hell. There is no infection but my body sure as hell did not like something in the bio oil.

      I kept my old accounts and came out publicly on Instagram. I lost access to my facebook account a few years ago so that one won't be changed, but I feel like that'd be the most dangerous one to transition on because it's a lot more conservative than other platforms. Maybe it just seems that way because a lot of my family are vocal bigots, but I also feel like with how you can see what friends like you are more likely to be exposed to transphobes. I don't plan on making a new account because I was so tired of how gross my family is and never got on before they got political anyways. However, my experience with other platforms is generally support. A few people unfollowed me, but I'll take that over trolls any day. It's probably also different based on age group. I may make a coming out video for my parents to post on facebook for family, but I don't if it's even worth it.   The good thing about social media is you can block people. You may have a lot of people to block on facebook keeping your old account, but I feel like that could happen with a new account too. Facebook is just scary to me.
