    God is my Strength

    I am happy for you that God gave you the strength for that and I hope your dad is well. I think, if one believes in God, then, no problem. Pray and one feels His strength. And if someone does not believe, then God gives the strength anyway. So, one may not need to belong to a church; God is still there even if they don't acknowledge Him.
  2. ​Yeah, parts of the city are rough. I stick to NW and the Dupont area (and Freddies in Crystal City) as best I can.
  3. Thanks for your efforts! I am soooo glad to have moved to DC...
  4. Try and remember that most screeners really are just trying to do their job, as hard as is to believe that. And, those that encounter a Trans* traveler have probably never met one on (or off) the job, and really have no idea how to react...and this under the pressure of an active screening point, which means move 'em, move 'em, move 'em. So while I agree that all travelers have a right to a dignified travel experience, and should immediately call for a supervisor if treated otherwise, keep in mind that the screener you find at the checkpoint just might want to get you through his or her station just as fast as you want to go through it.

    Everyone Transgender Is a Gay Man

    With apologies for making light: I can assure the forums, and the fda, that I am quite disease free. But thanks for asking. Let me know if you need some blood or anything, I'm always here to help.
  6. This is not really a tech question, but: How do I thank a member who 'liked' a post? And, How do i PM a member? thanks, Christine
  7. This is a late response, but you might try: compressional.com and the product is: It stays body adhesive The web site specializes in medical adhesive needs.

    Patrons Praise Gender-Neutral Bathroom

    Well, I suppose I won't get praise for this, but if the schools stuck to bathrooms and leave locker rooms to another day, I think they'd find it easier to navigate through this issue. Also- what is wrong with a separate bathroom designated for trans kids? I don't think that makes them 'lose their rights' or something. Just a thought.
  9. I missed the post before. It;s great that she was a groundbreaker on the clairol box. Does anyone know where she is today?
  10. Hiya! It sounds like you are on your way, so here is quote for you to keep in mind: "Our time here is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." --Steve Jobs Cheers!
  11. Brynn is a good writer, and the study she writes of is of course pseudo-science gobbledy-gook...Unfortunately, "reports" like the one she writes of will be used repeatedly by the haters, just as the climate change denial reports similar in scientific strength to her cited work will be held up by congresspersons as fact. Congrats to Brynn on a well-supported expose,' but I believe it won't make that much of a scratch in the real world.

    The Importance of Body Language in Passing

    I've found that RELAXING when I walk helps a lot, especially in public and crowds (like at our DC Metro).
  14. Great news! Let's hope for a jail term spent there, instead of being transferred home. On a different note- I can't see the word, Olongapo, without an automatic smile...such memories of that wonderful place (at least, as it was in the mid 80s and the early 90's (Pinatubo really fucked that place six ways to Sunday. Nice to see they have turned it around...
  15. And if you in or visiting the Washington, DC area: http://www.thedccenter.org/events.html The Center is a safe and friendly place to go. They also have contact info for every specialist under the sun. Smooches Christine

    Petition Says, "Drop the T"

    On second thought, an idea- let's start a petition to drop the LGB from our T universe. After all, what have they really done for use?
  17. Sorry all, I have a taker for my earrings. cheers, Christine Cheers, Christine (soon to be my legal name)...

    Everyone Transgender Is a Gay Man

    I think this is a case of the agency still catching up with reality. I think the wheels of federal justice, or sense, simply move more slowly that we'd like. I know of no authoritative treatise that explains the gender identity - gender expression - sexuality - queer range of reality. Maybe we should start with that...

    TDOR Richmond Virginia

    We had a beautiful service in DC at the MCC church. The place was packed. Lovely readings and service elements. Very nice.

    The Danish Girl

    Yes indeed- Eddie Redmayne is an up-and-coming actor of the highest quality...

    Petition Says, "Drop the T"

    Personally, I think the best way here is to ignore this ultimately meaningless "petition." Just because they have it on change.org or something similar, it does not mean that the owner puts any value- I could start a petition tonight to change the LGBT flag colors to be orange, blue, and brown. Doesn't mean it will garner any numbers (and a thousand or so signing the 'drop the t' isn't going to get anyone's attention.
  22. Yay! The more exposure of us to the general public, the better. We all know that despite the down sides in our lives, there is plenty of laughing as well. I'm really looking forward to this program.
  23. Let's note that the 'IGWT' thing was added our paper money in...'54 or maybe '56. In other words, it was certainly not dumped on us by the founding fathers. On a different note, you might like to listen to XTC's "Dear God" for a different spin...here's the lyrics : "Dear God" , hope you got the letter, and...I pray you can make it better down here.I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beerbut all the people that you made in your image, seethem starving on their feet 'cause they don't getenough to eat from God, I can't believe in youDear God, sorry to disturb you, but... I feel that I should be heardloud and clear. We all need a big reduction in amount of tearsand all the people that you made in your image, see them fightingin the street 'cause they can't make opinions meet about God,I can't believe in youDid you make disease, and the diamond blue? Did you makemankind after we made you? And the devil too!, don't know if you noticed, but... your name is ona lot of quotes in this book, and us crazy humans wrote it, youshould take a look, and all the people that you made in yourimage still believing that junk is true. Well I know it ain't, andso do you, dear God, I can't believe in I don't believe inI won't believe in heaven and hell. No saints, no sinners, nodevil as well. No pearly gates, no thorny crown. You're alwaysletting us humans down. The wars you bring, the babes youdrown. Those lost at sea and never found, and it's the same thewhole world 'round. The hurt I see helps to compound thatFather, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody's unholy hoax,and if you're up there you'd perceive that my heart's here uponmy sleeve. If there's one thing I don't believe init's you.... Submit Corrections
