    I was out to lunch with a friend the other day.

    We were catching up since we go to different colleges. Typical conversation, she talked about herself the whole time. When we were done and sitting in my car, she mentioned something about my hat. I always wear hats or beanies, it hides my hair. I told her I'm trans. She looked...

    I got called 'sir' at the McDonald's drive

    through. Surprised the hell out of me because I am not on T and my voice is not that masculine. I was also driving a pt cruiser- the ultimate chick mobile. It made my day, though. I am in my early 30s and worry that I'll never be able to transition. My family would not accept...

    I've been considering

    "This Is My Daughter."

    I can't stand hearing that. It embarrasses me and makes me feel so awkward. I'm told I don't look like a girl at all, so when my mom tells people she just meets "My daughter. . . *looks at me*", or "She's my 3rd child." or "This is my daughter.", its so... weird. I get weird...

    I've shared my transition with several very

    I'm at a weird point right now.

    If I had to summarize my feelings, it looks ironic - I need a talk. I'm in my early thirties. Post-transition for 7 years. On HRT, had one surgery and docs changed. Socialized as a man. I've spend 10 years in an active intercourse with transgender community (online and in vivo...
