    How many times have you been mistaken as a girl

    Today I was driving to the board of elections for election training. I was in boy mode and had my hair in a pony tail. I was not trying to look female at all and never during the entire five minute conservation did I try to disguise my voice. When I went into a parking structure near the meeting location to park and I asked the attendant if he knew if this was the right place to park for the election training. He called me "mam" and said he was not aware of the class. He then asked was I trying go to the meeting place for the "league of women voters." he said he could direct me there. I could tell now that he thought I was a woman. He finally directed me to the right location after calling me "Mam" twice more and asked me again if I really was looking for a meeting with the league of woman voters. When he gave me the directions he was really patronizing to me, asking me twice did I understand the directions. (After I left I was thinking he thought I was a woman and in his mind did not expect me to be good with directions)

    I believe my brows are not over done. Just well shaped. Maybe you can see them better in the three photos I recently took from a day when I went running in a local park.Thanks for your complements. Best to you both.

    How many times have you been mistaken as a girl

    Thanks for the complement - just last night my wife commented on that I really do look like a woman these days, even without makeup. She said my small body coupled with longer curly blond hair and my arched brows really made it difficult for people to see me as a male. Actually she was a bit niffed at this as she thinks I rival her in looks.

    Great story. Must have been some attraction going on when he started a conversation with a question. Even when I was in similar situations where I am fully dressed, and I knew I was very passable, I also get nervous and concerned about my voice giving me away. The neatest thing is when I am not dressed up female and still called mam - even my male sounding voice doesn't seem to make any difference, I am type cast as female.
  5. Longer shoulder length hair - let it all out last night - called mam twice last night at a restaurant we were going to.  I guess I cannot dress male eneough as my hair and face lead people to think of me as female.

     

  6. Just yesterday I was at a hotel getting ready for a swim meet the next day; arms and legs shaved, very tan, wearing sandels and very short denim shorts, wearing my now longer ponytail, and the desk clerk called me mam twice.  Was not trying to disquise my voice at all but did not seem to matter.  He even opened the door for and would have helped me with my bags if I had not told him I could do this without his help.  Boy this made me feel quite feminine.

  7. A new name this weekend - Called "Babe" by one of the life guards as I was heading for the pool.  My hair was in a pony tail and I was in red biking outfit.

    How many times have you been mistaken as a girl

    Not sure if this fits here - It does show some my mistaken gender ID, I Have been following all the Jenner news. This has stirred some of my recent thinking. What is the core of why we have our feelings and want so much to change. I think there is a certain desire to see ourselves as beautiful. Women express this better than almost all men. When I put on a dress I feel changed. When I see other men I see most of them as lazy/unkempt, fat/heavy and scuzzy. This is the excepted image of most men. I do not fit this image and I know I am stared at a lot by other men, usually in restrooms, who do not expect a beautiful looking man. When I look beautiful (Handsome) day-to-day, I am often mistaken for a girl, even when in unisex or masculine clothing. I usually do not go out of my way but I am well groomed, very tan, fit and now have longer styled blond hair. I think some of why I wish I could change is rooted in the concept of beauty - and if men could also be beautiful in what is currently a woman's norm early in life - I think fewer would be unhappy with their body image and fewer would want to change. Here is another thought. I think is more acceptable to be changed completely into a woman than it is to dress and adorn ones self in a similar fashion. Yes, I would love to wear a colorful attractive dress and show off my small waist and still not try to hide that I have a somewhat feminine looking male body. However, I feel less anxiety when I go through the complete effort of hiding any maleness as I look completely like a woman. Also, I actually feel safer in woman mode as I do not see myself as a homosexual; not wishing for men to lust for me in this fashion.

  10. Monica - Trying to figure out our new site. My voice is very male sounding so you might be surprised even though I can be quite feminine in appearance. I hope to join a telecom soon but must be on a day my wife is out. 

    My wife has become a bit jealous of time I spend with my transgender friends.  And I know she would not like to overhear my conversation as she now wants me to limit my time on this site.  She does understand, but we have been going to counseling with the goal of containing my transgender tendencies so we will remain married (And I do love her). 

    This is all good and I do appreciate your friendship.  I know I will talk to you someday.  I still try to grasp with who I am in a world that makes it hard to allow me to be me.  Love and Kisses - Dawn :)

    clothing/shopping experiences

    I have posted a portion of the photos of the outfits I found in the dressing room in our Galley. These were the items that had been in the dressing room before I went in. If you look, tell me if you think I made good decision? I was jazzed. Dawn

  16. Here is another dream I had - 19 July Dream about sleeping. My wife and I were in a group sleep clinic. Everyone there had to put some kind of Jell-O like mouth wash in their mouths. Mine was some king of green stuff that I finally washed out of my mouth. Then there were various sets of sleepwear on hangers and we could pick out the sleepwear we were wearing. My wfe had some kind of soft lounge wear sleepwear with long sleeves and long bottoms. I noticed I was wearing a white teddy and a white wrap around top. When I looked down at myself and I had breasts inside of my sleepwear. Then My wife and I looked at some of the beds and saw one that was a crib, we were going to sleep in the crib. Then the dream shifted to being on a train with many cars heading for a tunnel in the side of a mountain. It seemed like we were getting stuck behind many cars. All of a sudden I got very large and started to knock train cars (Like box cars and coal cars) into a valley below (We were on a train bridge). It was like the cars belonged to a toy train. Then I was flying over some place with green grass and some kind of place where there was a lot of equipment an supplies. On the way there were several people laying down in the grassy fields with mud over them (Mud baths) I think this was a continuation of the dream clinic. END of DREAM Please share a dream or two. Dawn :)
  17. I was actually dreaming when I first thought about this topic. I have found that when I dream I believe that I am being very honest with myself. I have dreamed I was a woman experiencing womanhood. Even having a baby in my dreams. When we dream we are beyond male and female. We can fly in ways beyond imagination. Please share with me your thoughts and dreams. I will be looking back over my dream diary and sharing some of my real dreams with you. Dawn
  18. Stories of your life or dreams - We all have them - please share a few if you can afford the time. Dawn :)

    clothing/shopping experiences

    Repeated Item from my Blog. Wow! Today. I was at Dicks Sporting Goods looking for some tennis panties and a superman shirt. I started looking first for the Under Armor, pink for best cancer superman shirts and a male sales representative said "Mam can I help you." Because I was really trying to look male today, I corrected him. Then he told me he saw my "long blond hair," under my ball cap and thought I was a girl. I explained to him that I was retired and felt free to wear my hair long. He then helped me find the right size. Ended up being a boys XL. Then I went over to the women's section looking for a short that would work well under my NIKE tennis dress. Looking at the clearance rack I also found a couple of unisex looking sport T's. I was just a bit concerned that I was now being read as a male. But the store was quite large and I had really only talked with a couple of the dozen or so sales reps that were there. As I was shopping the female store manager who was doing some restocking, asked me if I needed help. I said no, but after I had made my selections I asked her if she could help me into a dressing room. (Apparently my male voice did not turn the tide as she read me as female) Without batting an eye she took me directly to the woman's dressing room. This time I did not correct her and I went right in. This is when I had a really pleasant surprise. The room was full of women's sportswear right there for me to try on. (Capris and winter outerwear.) Whoever was in the room before me must have been close to my size as almost everything fit. I actually bought two of these outfits and I may post photos of me wearing them. I am sure after I left they sales staff may be having a chuckle as I expect they will trade notes and figure out I was a guy. Still this was a truly interesting adventure for me today. Dawn :)

    Anyone watch this one yet?

    Thanks for bringing this video to my attention. I relate very well with it. At first I saw it as a repersentation of being a crossdresser which is also what I used to think I was. The reality of actually being transgender I understand in a real way. I especially liked the stage performance. So sexy and lovely. This speaks of freedom to be yourself. I was touched Dawn :)

    The Importance of Body Language in Passing

    Thanks for this insight. I think I patterned my after after my mom. (There is quite a stoy behind this) I do most of these and I don't even think about it. So when I cross my legs or cross my ankles I am doing something unusual? I am also a talker and love to smile. I am not sure about my walk but I have been told on multiple occasions I do have a natural side to side hip motion. (Not normal to a male) The only gentleman things I really do are when I am in a unpleasent discussion or a location, where I am concerned how I may be perceved, I dont speak much. Also, I have always tried to give a firm handshake. I guess once patterened it can be very difficult to change. But really learning some of these sounds a bit like brainwashing and maybe couner produtive to a person bcoming the real person they were meant to be. Dawn

    My Story (Part 1)

    Hello Dawn, I too love women most and to a small extent men. I also like to see what beautiful women wear or look like and try to match them. Dawn
