    A friend I haven't seen in a while didn't recognize me and referred to me as 'he.'

    I saw an old friend today and she referred to me as male (we had had a falling out when I came out as trans). I also had some girls,ask for my number at work today while I was running the cash register... I politely declined and explained that it was agaimst company policy...lol

    I had one of those recently did I didn't talk to her.

    In fact I think according to my conversation last night with another friend, that this person knows that I'm trans.

    I got a packer today (Mr Limpy) and am wearing it. I got the smallest size but I'd rather a size up - still, despite being short it's quite bulky. Luckily they're very reasonably priced!

    Just home from a week of being misgendered by the family! I survived!

    Apparently I've actually been passing lately. At the DMV the lady there kept calling me he, and today some guy referred to me and my mom as ladies then did a double take when he saw me. Also I'm going to get a 2nd binder soon.

    Got gendered correctly at the piercing shop today. Said "young man" and refered to me with male pronouns the whole time I was there!

    But then when I went to the pharmacy afterwards, the cashier misgendered me...
    But I was so happy about before, I didn't even care that much~

    I guess the piercing people are used to seeing alternative boys with long hair etc.

    I'm bad with my words, but with the help of Nik, we explained to our 9 year old sister that I'm going to Philadelphia to start hormone therapy soon and she took it really well. It makes me wonder why my mom was so anal about me coming out to her since kids are so much better with stuff than they're given credit for.

    Found my previous biology teacher on a Taiwanese transgender BBS board I frequent. Turns out he's FtM like me, and I mustered up my courage, PM'd him, and came out.
    He gave me some great advice.

    My parents didn't give me any like collared shirts or anything.

    And I did get money for a girl to go shopping.

    Lot o miss and hun'd today.

    Especially after a lot of shopping. Even with people who know I'm trans they were like wow you've changed a lot since I last saw you.

    Also with a transgender friend who I met through EC right now but she's sleeping.
