Here are a couple of mine...

The transitionals page is a very interesting read, and I have to applaud your bravery, both for sharing of yourself so openly and also for your going out in female dress.  Even if my current living situation didn't make that all but impossible for me, I'm not sure I'd be brave enough yet to leave the house in female dress.  So, bravo to you.  

There are a great many problems that can be circumvented by players and DMs having a mature discussion about what the game is going to be like before they ever sit down together to play.

 

The answer really does lie in more options, not in confining and segregating certain options.

 

You really shouldn't speak for others.  You can't hear what someone else is saying when you try to put your words in their mouth.

Thanks.  :D

 

Its not always easy, though.  Today and tomorrow, I am dressing in my old "guy" clothes to register the kids for school.  A mix of anxiety on my part and not wanting the kids to have to deal with any bullying because their dad is transgender.  :P

I can certainly understand that.  What with cyberbullying and everything, which wasn't a thing when I was a kid, kids have a hard enough time these days without their families being brought into the mix.

It is scary, but it gets less scary after a while. I mean, I'm not saying the fear goes away. More that you start to feel other things - confidence, a light free kind of joy, serenity - that make the fear and the looks and the friction of being transgender in the world easier to bear. At least, that's been my experience and the experience of the people I know who've been through it.

 

And, in fairness, I've been on hormones long enough that I'd look even stranger in 'guy' clothes than I do in women's clothes and be miserable besides. So there's a practical side to it, as well.

I was set to start gender therapy and hormones back in March and then...I was laid off and everything stalled.

Very.  I have been job hunting since March and have not gotten beyond the interview stage for anything, yet.  Also frustrating.  :P

Fortunately, it sounds like you've got a loving and supportive family to help keep your spirits up.  I hope you manage to find something sooner than later.

OH boy, if you're welcoming shameless self promotion here, there's always my chainmail jewelry Etsy page:

I'll be using this page soon to help fund my transition-related expenses. Here's its Facebook page:

For my own transition (I started HRT a month ago), I've been taking weekly pictures of my face and full torso. The thought is, once I get up the courage, to start putting the pictures up on a social media site that will block breasts; then I can triumphantly say that X-site has declared that I have breasts.

 

You know, once I have the courage to put my face out there more.

 

Kiraya, the transitionals are a great read.

Thanks, Xeviat!  I gave your Facebook page a "like."  :D

I'm not on Facebook (or Twitter or any of that stuff), but I wanted to say thanks for bringing that upworthy.com video to my attention.Not only was it quite touching, but as a transgendered Catholic I really appreciate a religious perspective that is based more on love and acceptance for the way people are as human beings than it is on appearnce.

 

Because I currently live a closeted life, I've never had to say it to anyone before, but this has been my religious perspective about my gender (and transgenderism in general): If a person is born physically or mentally disabled does that mean they are also disabled in their soul as well; or, are they whole persons who are merely trapped in or hindered by an accident of biology.

Upworthy has some good stuff.  Ironically, so far, the only person who has tried to use a religious argument against me, personally, has been here (the D&D community site).
