    Hi Kaylee.  My first time out was scary and exhilarating.  Lucky for me too I went out with a group of other more experienced CDs.  We went clubbing following our guide who took us to a few TG friendly gay clubs.   I haven't been out shopping en femme yet but have had to walk through a very busy three story shopping mall from top to bottom.  I came in through a parking garage meaning to get into another building where Sexapalozza was having an event.  I got a few looks but most did not pay attention.  I wasn't if the looks were because I was not passing or because I was wearing sunglasses and it was dark outside.  LOL  I did find my way to the event and was the only CD there as far as I could tell.  I enjoyed it all.  Except one part, when I was finding my way back to the parking garage I had to go down and long winding hallway to get there.  I was alone.  Even though I can take care of myself I began to feel quite vulnerable.  I realized how women feel when they are alone and vulnerable.  We do need to be careful.

    We have Long Tall Sally's here in Canada.  I am a member.  I went in male to buy a pair of ankle boots I saw online and they were very helpful and polite.  The prices were great.  The manager told me they get a few other CDs there and if I wanted to return sometime to try on clothes I could set up an after-hours appointment.   I appreciated the offer but at the same time it gave me something to think about.  I can understand the offer if they think I would come to try on clothes in male mode, however, if I came in female mode why would I need an after-hours appointment even if I don't pass?  I still like what they offer.  I have been to the store here in Ottawa and also one in Toronto.  I was treated well there too and was again in male mode, except for my finger nails which were painted.  Love the prices of the "on sale" items.

    That is sad to hear.  I didn't hear anything about it where I live.  I am sure there was a vigil somewhere here but I didn't read anything.  I mean to go sometime.

    I have yet to be to a vigil but my thoughts are with those who have passed.  I guess the higher rate of murders of transgenders is due to the increased numbers of those coming out.  The number of murders of anyone is way to high.  Suicides is another matter and is also way too high.

    I don't understand how the petition could be lasting so long?

    When I was still married I used to have several hiding places in the basement and eventually that got all full.  My wife didn't like the furnace area so that was a good place.  We had a dropped ceiling in the finished part of the basement and the space between the panels and the wood ceiling could be accessed from the laundry room.  I had to use a small step ladder to put stuff up there.  One other place was inside a panel that went around a sewer pipe.  It had a small door that was screwed in and I put a couple of shelves inside and stored magazines and lingerie there.
    I had a PO Box at UPS and then I got a Sears MasterCard using only my initials and surname (so when ordering anything they wouldn't know the gender) and the PO Box address,  When my MC bill came I would go to Sears and pay for it in cash.  The scary part was going in and out of the UPS store and hoping not to be seen by a neighbour or anyone who knew my wife.
    That was another issue, where do I get the money to pay for things without notice or questions from my wife.  When I would run errands or get money for this or that I would put $5, $10 or $20 away in one of my secret places.  It would add up quick enough then I would be out shopping or online shopping.
    I am happy I don't have to do any on that any more.  I still have to put $5, $10 or $20 away for shopping because living on your own is expensive.  I also still have a problem on where to put all my clothes.  My closet is taken up with mostly women's clothes and shoes and my women's dresser is full. My men's dresser is full.  I need another bedroom to use as closet.  Oh well!

    Wait!  I do see three dots but they are on my tool bar. They are consecutive and if I scroll over them it says, "Click here to change Settings".
    Not what you mean though right?

    I am afraid I don't see the 3 dots anywhere on the page.  I am on a desk top computer.  Are you referring to cell phones?  I don't have a cell phone.

    I am not sure how that works in the military.  I mean how segregated are the men and women?  I agree that TG men and women should be allowed in the military without fear from their own soldiers.  Since other countries are already doing it what is preventing the US from following suit?

  14. Bonnie added a post in a topic: Bruce Jenner is a basic Cross dresser   

    I am much like Caitlyn.  I am transsexual and so is Caitlyn.  I live privately as female and publicly as male.  Since I do I can't go on hormones nor go for anything transitional.  The public still gets confused regarding the difference between a crossdresser and a transsexual.  A crossdresser enjoys wearing clothes of the opposite gender but does not wish to be the opposite gender.  A transsexual wants to be the opposite gender, knows that they are inside, however, for various reasons may not go through any kind of transitioning.  That does not change how they feel inside.  That is all that matters, how one feels inside.
    I have been acting out a male character for all life but I know I am female inside.  I am used to living this way and have come to terms with it for now.  I do keep pushing the envelope now and then by going out in public dressed female.  Caitlyn came to a point where she needed to come out publicly plus she was being pushed out by the media.  She loves her family and wants to be accepted by them.  She struggles, who wouldn't?

    The Scottish kilts have nothing to do with crossdressing and all the men I have seen wearing them look quite manly.  Crossdressing has more to do with looking like someone of the opposite gender as much as possible.  The crossdresser does not want to be the opposite gender, which crosses into transsexualism, but simply enjoys it.
