    So my mom commented on my black dress and knee high converse. "So do you wear those to school?"

    Only on casual Fridays and I get teachers and students saying they love my outfit and are jealous.

    Also she's been telling me about a trans teacher who just came out at my Alma mater where she works now.

    And wants to know if I know any other Trans people.

    That... was a big step I think.

    I have a friend who doesn't even say Taysia anymore, and when she took A screenshot I saw I was saved as "Tate" and I felt so happy. Ironically, she was screenshotting a gay love comic and I texted her something. Also once at a Halloween party I found an excuse to cross dress (but it's not cross dressing anymore) and my friend's little brother asked me if I was a boy or a girl, and even though some would think it rude, and it was dark out, I felt oddly satisfied.

    do you think she's realizing that we're more wide spread than she ever thought?

    so i was at the store this afternoon with my son, and i tried on a 'ladies' cowboy hat. white sort of like lace material. i looked at him; 'how do i look' he's face was priceless, sort of shocked he said all he could see was woman. of course i bought the hat, haha. might have been partly due to my new glasses, they're a big switch from the 'manly' ones i had to a more androgynous style and from gun metal to blue frames.

    The upper lip hurt like hell, definitely the worst part for me. Tip: For those taking pills, AT LEAST three hours before to take it. I took mine an hour before one time and it was the most painful session ever. My tech said that was probably because of the estrogen spike, same reason most girls have issues on their period.

    I think the "shit kids say" moment about gender is SO FUNNY bc I can totally see myself doing that as a kid when I was doing nb things but had no concept of it. I can shake my head and laugh at how far I've come and be glad to open the eyes to kids now days.

    What was your Halloween costume?

    My small victory: probably I just found a way to buy and wear a binder without anyone questioning it.. I do martial arts and my boobs are often in the way: if I wore a binder they would be less troublesome, right? :grin:
    The only one who won't be fooled about my REAL motives is my husband, but if he doesn't say anything I'll take it as a sign that it doesn't bother him too much :slight_smile:

    Whoa, Austin, big congrats!!

    Today I was waiting in the office - Friday afternoon, the place already dead - when my coworker entered the room and said - "Hey, that´s you, I thought that´s some handsome boy standing there!"
    So, I accidentally passed not just only as boy, but as a handsome one? Win win today!!
