  1. tbirdgal added a post in a topic A Bad Idea   

    I have advocated we Trans people drop out of all GAY related events for years . First , too many Gay people see us as insecure nut jobs and unable to function in our own skin . Look, I have nothing against gay Folks , their life is their life . For me , I'm entering a life as a mature woman and Mom.

    Michael, I've been fired , yes , a couple of times for appearing "Too Female" looking . Once was a grocery store, the time before that a large Towing outfit . I guess that is why I got fed up and restarted my own company .

  3. tbirdgal added a post in a topic Were You a DES Baby? A CDC Tool May Help You Find the Answer   

    Emma , I already know I am a D E S child . I was to have been interviewed by CNN last August by a lady I am close to on Facebook. We became very close friends over my medical research as the doctors here in Virginia do not wish to address Trans gender issues as thoroughly as I do. In my years out , I have collected yards of medical documents on DES and on being Transgender. I'm very lucky to have friends at UCLA d NYU who have shared studies with me. Granted, I'll never afford Medical school . Still, I can HOME study and learn .

    I was handed divorce papers years back as a result of my being a trans woman . I like the idea of renewed vows though !

    I'm ALWAYS amused as to the Mindset of the Religious Right . . They should simply go to one of the Middle eastern countries and deprived of sexual fantasy there .

    Monica , I was invited back to a New York radio show today for another "Phone interview " . Point is , I could have done this in my Night gown . I told the Hostess, Jennifer Lopez I am a mature transwoman and I came up in the 1950's . In other words , I respect myself enough to look at least "Presentable " .

    When I go out for a business meeting , Hon, it's a DRESS , a suit and heels . Yeah, I'm June Cleaver .

    I'm in the middle of two magazine stories and some over zealous people on FB . The boot issue to me seems trivial . If someone is going to call ya out over a rather androgionous pair of boots , perhaps they need to reassess their own wardrobe choices !

  14. tbirdgal added a post in a topic Why Do I Crossdress?   

    For me at a VERY young age , it was because in my head , I was a Girl. As I aged , the desires NEVER went away, I was a Teenage woman . As I aged , I saw myself as a Woman, nothing more . Now , I'm old and guess what , I'm an older woman who has at least gotten on HRT .

    Thankfully, we're not Alabama . I'm in Virginia and while it's been a "Jailable " offense to use a restroom before SRS, we don't have Bath room gestapo either .

    Michael, you an I BOTH know the likelihood of signs posted in stores saying We refuse service to LGB and t people isn't going to stay long . I already see the ACLU pouncing all over this issue the minute the ink is dry on the Governor's signature .

For some unknown reason , there a "Core " bunch that basicly dictate to the entire community what is and what is not acceptable .

  22. tbirdgal added a post in a topic "The Art of Passing"   

    Monica , your comments are well taken. I stopped buying at a large Chain over my groceries being handed to another customer ahead of me and to further matters , BOTH the cashier and the bagger REFUSE to admit guilt . FURTHER , the manager blew me off as I don't always shall we say pass well when I'm in jeans and work shoes . There is a Kroger opening soon VERY nearby where this store is . I've been shopping out further at another company but I promise ya , I shall NEVER EVER return to the store where I was brushed off , EVER !

    Well, for me , I have my remaining side , all Girl. Sure , I do some guy things even as a "Butch " woman. I don't give it too much thought now , nor do I care that my trans sisters think I'm betraying them over my "Male" dominated activities .
