    Dear Christy,
    If you get makeup on clothes, always have some liquid Tide on hand, put some liquid Tide on the spot for at least a half an hour, and then wash. Often that solves the problem.

    Dear Emma,
    Every woman should be professionally fitted for a bra every six months. 
    Make sure you bend over and DROP your breasts into the cups every time you put on your bra.
    By the way, it is best to wash your bras and other "delicates," that you mentioned here BY HAND and in gentle liquid soap made for this purpose, the brand which is the most common, called Woolite, in lukewarm water. Also my mother, may God rest her soul, stored her delicates in their own drawer in her dresser, separated by sheets of white tissue paper.

    Dear Mero,
    Just as in the cisgender male community, there is a SPECTRUM of degrees of masculinity.
    Men and women, both trans and cisgender, should learn to celebrate diversity and respect one another. Unfortunately, it takes longer for some than others! 😉
    Yours truly,
    Monica

    Dear Christy,
    Try not to compare yourself with others. You are beautiful inside and out.

    Dear MichelleLea,
    You'll find you will get out of the Chamber of Commerce what you put into it. Joining the Chamber of Commerce is one of the greatest investments you can make in your business career. They also offer programs such as SCORE, which are retired business owners and executives who offer free advice. Also they offer free or inexpensive classes on how to run a business. There are free pamphlets about various aspects on running a business. Best of all, they have a program pairing up women business owners (also people of color and disabled). 
    Love hearing about your progress!
    Yours truly,
    Monica

    Dear Karen,
    When someone is loud and unkempt, trans or cisgender, male or female, Straight or Gay, this could mean low self-esteem, under the influence, or mental illness, especially if you recall them in times past as "well put together." You are wise to back off graciously in public, as this person could create an unpleasant scene.
    The time to give such a person support is in private, but I would not go into their home or invite them into yours. Your personal safety is paramount.
    This really brings home the point that a person can change dramatically, even in a short period of time.
    Your friend,
    Monica

    Dear Christy,
    As I said in the Forums (in response to your post), good looking people in one gender tend to be good looking in the other gender when they transition.
    Also recall my mother loved that my second brother had beautiful hair when he was an infant, and she allowed it to grow long until he entered Kindergarten. He was often mistaken for being a girl. Think this happens a lot, and when driven by the parent, does not affect gender or sexual orientation. 
    Yours truly,
    Monica

    Dear Kitrah, Emma and Karen,
    There is a wonderful FREE nonprofit educational website called Khan Academy (www.Khan Academy.org), "You Tube University," and many outstanding universities that offer free no credit online courses. You may have to Google "free online courses" or "free university online courses." Some are taped and some of them are live with a professor and other students taking the course with you online. Have studied both at Khan Academy and taken Finance at NYU this way and got a lot out of it. Also, I got a lot out of You Tube.
    Worth looking into . . .

    Friends,
    Feel VERY UNSAFE on social media, no matter what they say. Seek out trusted websites such as TGGuide instead. Have been betrayed on social media many times.

  12. MonicaPz added a comment on a blog entry: How many times have you been mistaken as a girl   

    Dear Dawn,
    In my opinion, people are responding to people's ENERGY, rather than their looks. This is why women disguised as men, and vice versa, rarely get away with it.

    Dear Kitrah,
    TGGuide is VERY SAFE, because it is tightly moderated by kind, sensitive and caring moderators, EVERY DAY.
    Agree with Emma about therapy, but make sure you are comfortable with your therapist, and that they are TRUSTWORTHY. You may want to give him or her a heads up that there are people trying to get into your business by calling your doctors and therapists. My brothers tried to do this to me, and my doctors and therapists had to tell them if they continued to call them, they would call the police. Upon hearing that, they stopped!
    Your friend,

    Dear Michelle Lea,
    Thank you for your concern. You, and my other friends here at TGGuide, keep me going.
    This Spring, I am visiting Burlington, VT. 
    Next, I will visit Seattle, WA, where I am also on the waitlist for public housing.
    Again, thank you for your support.
    Yours truly,
    Monica

    Dear Michelle Lea and Emma,
    When I lived in Tampa Bay, Florida, I had a wide variety of choices, both T/LGB and non-T/LGB, of activities.
    Now I live in a narrow-minded place, in upstate NY, even when they claim to be seeking members and volunteers, (this includes CHURCHES!), which never call you back, where the disabled and elderly stay in their homes for weeks and months at a time. 
    Presently I reach out on a one to one basis, and we have 2 social workers in my building who are trying to combat this.
    Am on the waitlist for Burlington VT and Seattle WA public housing. Am 60, and I am praying my health does not give out before I move.
    Yours truly,
    Monica
