Happy moments for the gender-wise

Hi community,

I'm new here and thought I would share my small victory, I finally decided on a name, Elias Dylan.

...today some post came, in my old name, and it didn't hurt to read it.

That's the first time that's happened.

Today, while doing a little jig step in the kitchen, I noticed my arse hurt. Further examination determined the cause - it was bouncing up and down rather more than I was used to, because there are now fat deposits forming on the sides.

So, my arse is now getting girlier! Yay!

I got to my parents' place just after everyone left for church. There are hand-painted glasses with everyone's names on them. Mine has the right name. I am so happy.

Today I learned that there are people out there trying to create an online marketplace dedicated primarily to the unique clothing needs of trans or genderqueer people. They call the project the Genderplayful Marketplace, and if they can raise some money by January 15th they can start making it a reality. Wouldn't that be amazing? More info at the link below.


(If this is spam, I'm sorry, but the community is so slow lately and this is really relevant to our interests, so I figured no one would mind.)

 I cut my hair short last week and bought myself both some men's and some women's dress clothes on black Friday. Being ok with, or at least aware of who I am has helped me find peace when I get dressed every morning. I don't have to look like all the other girls and I don't have to look like the guys either. I also don't have to look like shit because I've given up trying to fit into some group. I feel good mixing it up. Who made the rules about what boys/girls wear anyways? Make-up with a boy's outfit, leggings and heels with a man's dress shirt...this is fun! I can be me and look good too!! :)

This just made my day. Talking to a 'straight' guy on OkCupid, who messaged me because he's interested in the fact that i'm transmasculine, and who is -respectfully- asking me about what that means, and who is really concerned about being tactful and sensitive. :D
oh, and the fact that he's quite good-looking is also nice :P

New Birth Certificate [Aug. 12th, 2010|07:50 pm]
Happy moments for the gender-wise

I got my new birth certificate in the mail today, with both my name and gender updated! I was worried they were going to send it back with some issue, but it was hassle-free.

Last night I also began building my case to get my insurance company to pay for top surgery. Wish me luck!

I am FTM and have been on T for about..twenty-seven weeks and have been binding for a good year and a halfish, give or take. No surgeries yet.
Just got out of a shower and decided to look at myself naked in the mirror. I've been taking baby steps to try to cut down the depression that I have whenever I look at myself not with fifty layers of clothing. Looked at myself in just my boxers and even though it's sad that the body I have isn't the one I'm supposed to have...all I could really see is the man I am going to become in two years. I also can walk around my apartment (I live by myself, so it's all good) in just my binder, a muscle shirt and my boxers without freaking out about it.
It's a good feeling. :D

This weekend, for the first time in my life, I got introduced to a girlfriend's parents as just her girlfriend, rather than her "tranny lover." It was interesting. I didn't have to hear anyone conjecture about the possibility that she's just with me because I'm nonthreatening. I didn't have to hear anyone say that they "just don't understand" why anyone would want to get involved with someone like me.

The most awkward comment made was that, when I wasn't around, girlfriend's mom apparently asked girlfriend something along the lines of "If you met a nice boy at some point, would there still be a possibility of you dating said boy?"

Girlfriend felt it was an inappropriate question and declined to answer.
