  1. I havent worn nylons in decades. Even under my wedding dress i had bare legs, that damn dress was uncomfortable enough already.
  2. I agree the sick part is the abuse and murder, I hate that they focus on the panties and stuff, just trying to sell papers. This has nothing to do with gender identity and everything to do with being a killer. Media is constantly ticking me off.
  3. I do agree with that Michael but I am thinking of it in terms of skeletal structure, not muscle. Like how females by birth throw overhand differently than a male due not to muscle strength but how the arm actually is attached to the frame. Our skeletons are different and that's alot of the reasons why men and women, by birth, have different strengths and weaknesses from each other. If skeleton was affected during transition that would be different.
  4. I understand her complaint but I actually think she is going too far. This is a sport where bone structure means something I think. Not sure but that's what I've heard. There are pros and cons to every decision and excluding yourself from competing in a physical sport where skeletal structure impacts performance is her tradeoff. the world doesn't need to change all its rules to suit this lady because she made the decision to change her life. if skeletal structure didn't matter, like say chess or poker i'd be right behind her. ***running and hiding***

    Hey i just got a weird one too. it wasnt really what you would call 'inappropriate' like no cussing or filth, just from someone wanting to be emailed privately. whatever.
  6. I think this person needed more counseling before embarking on their grs.

      Recently complimented my brother, that his rescue Boxer, never had gas, and as if on cue, Dobie proved me wrong! It almost knocked me over!!

  8. Oh Bonnie I am so sorry you are all having to go through this, it's got to be horrible. I really think that as hard as it is, it is the best thing. Hard to believe i'm sure because of all the pain. To be honest, i didn't understand what benefit there was really to her with you coming back home. does she really want a husband there who is just 'acting' the part? As a wife myself, I can't imagine wanting my husband to stick around if i knew that he was only playing a part, what's the point. As far as your kids are concerned, I think they will come around. they will understand that what happened here was no ones fault, intent is what matters, and you never wanted in any way to hurt anyone. They are just kinda in shock, and reacting protectively with their mother. No human being can be happy unless they can be their true selves, especially with their loved ones, and you never had that. I'm sure the rest of the month is going to be stressful on you and your family until you move, i wish the best for you. Love Kim
  9. Oh Bonnie I was worried that this would happen. I was worried that you were going back because of the cancer diagnoses, and who could blame you for wanting to be surrounded by a safety net of people who love you when you are facing something scary. I wondered if after you settled in there and were finishing up with your treatment and getting back to your life, that you would be less afraid, and maybe feel even more that you need to be true to yourself. There is no easy answer, I am thinking about you though.
  10. Dawn congratulations on your ongoing weight loss! I am hell-bent to lose some weight before summer as I want to wear short sleeves and tank tops and not see my sausage like arms. thank the lord I am tall so i dont look completely beach ball like, but i could sure lose 20 pounds and look much better. less jimmy dean like. so cough up the secret!
  11. Lizeth it's a real cute picture! Love the glasses and hair. Welcome! ~Kim
  12. That's a bummer Janey, you had some cool outfits. Did you actually have to throw all the stuff out? The boots too? You did not throw those boots out! That had to be tough. Do you wear the clothes with your wife around, or does she not want you to dress period? I'm not sure quitting is likely being you enjoy it so much, just may have to keep a little more quiet about it. ~Kim

    This has been a very interesting thread to read. I think all parties have been very thoughtful in their posts. I can only give perspective from a non tg person, but I believe that for the greater good of the ts/tg community, I have to lean towards GirlInside's view. I think if there had already been much progress made in the acceptance of tg folks by the general public, it may be great to begin showing the lifestyles of folks like Thomas Beattie, but I know that from what I see in my day to day life, and from working in a predominantly male office of all sorts of guys, blue collar, white collar and everything in between, stories like this do not further the acceptance of tg folks in their mind, it is the opposite. Pretty much a story like this is viewed by the general public as something pretty freakish. If the tg people do gain general acceptance down the road, it won't be through hearing stories like this, or by seeing the media go ape over over-the-,top drag queens, but by a slow assimilation of transgendered folks into their spaces, ie: work, school, TV and community in a non threatening and non-sensationalized way. I personally would love for that to happen. I'm not saying I like that this is the way it is, quite the contrary. But this is the way I see it.

    Beatie again...

    The dude will be on Larry King tonight 9pm Eastern. I've seen enough of him myself. Why can't he just go away and have have the kid and shut up? I don't mind him having the kid, I mind him being on my TV.

    Why does he have to be so public about it. I mean I know it shows and everything, but why go on Oprah, and Barbara Walters, why not just have the baby like everyone else does, just family and friends and stuff. Why broadcast it to the world. I'm not saying he should 'hide' it, I'm just asking him to get on with his life however he wants to do it and get off of my tv.

    That does make sense and I was wondering the exact same thing. When you want something badly it can be hard to understand why someone else wouldn't want it also. I can't think of one man I know that I think would actually even consider carrying a child. My husband who is sweet, sensitive and kind would run to the nearest adoption center instead. I think it's so cool hearing everyone's opinion on this topic.

    I agree, but I do think it is goona make it harder for this guy to be seen as a guy by most people. I mean even harder than it probably already was. I was a gg who was not able to give birth to my own children (eggs to old), but if it was offered to my husband to carry the kid, he would have chosen to adopt I'm sure. But I don't feel any different about this guy, I just think the general public does not think it's cool.

    A male giving birth is pretty unnatural on this planet. I'm not criticizing the guy, but the general public ain't goona get it. They believe that childbirth=female, period.

    I was at work today listening to WJR talk radio, and the morning host, a very well liked and popular guy named Frank Beckman, brought up this particular story. I was interested of course, the topic wasnt discussed very long but in it he said "why on earth would a man ever want to carry a child". He could not believe that a ftm transsexual would actually get pregnant and carry a child, toward the end of the piece when he read some of the story over the air, he stopped and said "and let's stop calling this person a he, this is not a he. He's don't have babies. This is not a shock jock by any means, just an AM morning show. He usually has politicians on and talks about those issues, like our own Detroit's idiotic loser of a mayor. So I was thinking about what he said, and I must admit that if i knew a ftm and they were pregnant, I would have a very difficult time thinking about them as being male. Not that it makes him wrong for carrying a baby, but not male. I don't know, i will keep pondering it. Just thinking out loud as usual.
