    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 :)

      Dawn,

      Thank you for your patience with the upgrades on TGGuide.  Most of all, there will be an increase in security.

      Many of our married members are dealing with the same issues as you.

      Yours truly,

      Monica

      No. It doesn't make me think. I'm pretty sure God and Satan DO NOT need our help. Angry Monkey has wholesale butchering down to a fine art.

    On Monday, when the nurse from the county health department stopped in to evaluate me for a home attendant, she asked me if I was transgender. I said no, I am a cisgender Lesbian.

      What an odd question for her to ask. I suppose in one sense it was respectful since she at least recognized that one might be transgender, perhaps might want appropriate pronouns. So I suppose that overall it's an okay question. How did it make you feel?

      Am ok with ANY respectful question. This has not been the first time. Rejoiced I was asked respectfully in a very homo and trans phobic county!

      I would had asked "what makes you think that?"

    Last night, while watching Charlie Rose on PBS, interviewing a panel of professors of psychiatry, that in an upcoming episode, they will be discussing GENDER!

    1. EmmaSweet

      That sounds like something to look forward to. We need to determine when and let everyone know.

    According to the Pew Research Center, the average Black income is $11,000, Latino income is $13,700 and White income is $141,900. Check out their website, www.pewresearch.org. It's very interesting!

    1. EmmaSweet

      Monica, while I intuitively believe that White income is higher than Black or Latino, I cannot imagine that the "average" White income is almost $142K. I looked at the website and cannot find the data you're referring to!

      It was quoted in an article (can't remember where) and the information on Pew Research changes constantly. Couldn't find it either on the website. If I find it, I will let you know.

    Even neuro- and trans-typical individuals are on the transgender spectrum.
