    while I was at work last night, in uniform*, 2 little girls started saying "that guy looks like a girl" in a normal little kid conversation tone, not bully tone, which made me feel a bit better because i was having a sucky day emotionally. At one point one of them said "that guy is a girl" which really made me smile.

    * - my uniform is a black polo, black apron, and bluejeans, because we can wear blue jeans where I work.

    Skateboarded down to town today and picked up some guy's cologne, men's boxers with a nice wide branded band to stick out ma jeans and a big thick belt. Wearing it all, skateboarding around, I feel like I've finally let free my childhood self who just wanted to be one of the boys, that I let be stifled. (and the boxers were totally randomly chosen and super cheap but fit nice and don't have loads of penis-pocket fabric - bonus!!!)

    Hair finally cut short! Although the style can be quite feminine at times, I only need to sort out the fringe to make it look masculine, but I'll only be doing that in private, since I'm still on the closet. My when I look in the mirror, I see a boy now, not a girl.

    I came out to two girls in my year at school and two girls who live in England and I see once a year, maximum. I'm feeling comfortable with who I am and I didn't worry at all - serious improvement!

    Also, I'm really glad for all you above me who have amazing victories!

    My fiancee is seeing her mom without me this weekend and plans to discuss my "transness" with her as she put it lol. (His royal transness.) All my immediate family knows now and haven't had any problems with it but I am close with hers as well so they are still quite an important hurdle. I certainly don't anticipate any problems from her mother who is very sweet. Her stepdad on the other hand is an ex army Trump supporter but whatever. He is at least pretty gay friendly.

    Her mom is especially guilty of constant feminine endearments and buying me gifts that are clearly for women even though I've never worn a shred of women's clothing around her or anyone, so hopefully she will at least try to stop now.

    Went to a back-to-school type event that my mom also happened to be volunteering at. She and I were talking to another parent and then the lady made a comment along the lines of "Oh, well is your SON in *insert school activity*?"

    My mom was totally mortified but I was thrilled to accidentally pass a little bit lol

    In an attempt to gain a phantom phallus, I stuck two rolled-up pairs of socks down my trousers and left them there overnight and for most of the morning. I don't wanna risk doing that in public because have no idea how dicks work and I think I accidentally made mine too large, but holy crap it was comfortable. It just felt so right. It's weird how whenever I feel like I'm 'not trans enough' or super unsure about all this, something happens to reaffirm that I'd be much happier as a man.

    I was away on a caravan holiday without WiFi for a week, so I can only post this now...

    I went to Liverpool Pride last week and it was so amazing. I got a trans t-shirt ("some people are trans. Get over it") and a bracelet with the trans pride colors and my initials (T.A.S.H.) and I spent the entire day (and the night out) with one of my closest friends and two of hers that I'd only met a couple of times, so hadn't come out to. My friend said he once and they both followed along like it was natural to look at me and think "boy".

    There was also semi-awkward dancing with a girl in a bar (because I can't and don't dance). But it was still nice to know that can happen to me.

    had to take my step sons girlfriend and him to his girlfriends house tonight, and we had to stop for gas. my stepson decided to pump the gas to learn how to do it, so some guy walked by us and did a double take, when he heard my voice which is still to deep for my liking.

    my stepsons girlfriend just smiled and laughed at the guy, because i was still in girl clothes and i dont think he was sure what to think

    LOL
