jennifer38 : (25 November 2014 - 10:49 AM) I've been trying, all day, to start a blog.  I created it, but I can't find where to type the main text of my entries.  For now, I seem to have the easiest time with the shoutbox.  I know I'm heard, here, for sure, and I can easily find other stuff I've already typed, here.
CharityLynnC... : (25 November 2014 - 10:23 AM) transgender suicide hotline has arrived for those in need. http://www.translifeline.org/
EmmaSweet : (25 November 2014 - 07:21 AM) Hi Jennifer, I suggest you start a blog on this topic and any others that you have now or later. I'm sure there are people here, like me, who would be happy to help however we can.
pushkal : (25 November 2014 - 05:34 AM) Hello to all
jennifer38 : (25 November 2014 - 04:36 AM) Good morning all.  Its after 7 AM Eastern.  Cold weather's coming back to PA.  Yuck.  Anyway, in response to someone I read, I would like to start a thread on my unique issues.  I wonder if this is what intersexed is.  When setting up my account, I wasn't sure which gender option to choose.  All I know is, I want to honestly state my true physical makeup as a man, but just as honestly confess my internal female feelings.  I've always wanted to meet other people in my exact situation.  I trust I am not alone in this, and this forum is a great way to vent these feelings I cannot just tell anyone.  At least I shouldn't be criticized or judged for this.  I'd certainly get it if I told family and church members.  I've hinted at it to my family, but I definitely did not go into all the vivid detail like I'm doing here.

pushkal : (24 November 2014 - 11:25 PM) I want to appear in public as transgender
UsernameOpti... : (24 November 2014 - 10:39 PM) Hello jennifer38, and welcome.  Perhaps you would consider starting a thread on this topic - there may be others who encounter the same issues.
jennifer38 : (24 November 2014 - 07:57 PM) Here's where things get tricky.  I like my short hair and men's clothes, but my inner self feels feminine, and it is for that reason I crave the right to use ladies' bathrooms.  My inner and outer selves are constantly at war.  I've been deathly afraid to openly tell anybody outside the TG community.  I'm glad I can open up, here.  Please, any ladies on here, talk to me when you can.  I'd like that.

:lol: ... I don't think he's gonna have a whole heck of a lot to say unless he's haunting the Arizona state capitol building and has found a way to channel his thoughts to someone or something!  Otherwise...he's just gonna have to suck it up.

Now... he may be squirmin'.  Or more appropriately, turning in his grave.  But from what I've read about him, I don't think anyone is going to care.  Seems that even the conservatives couldn't deal with that fool.  Tha's pretty bad.

As for the school...I have mixed feelings.  In some ways, I am beginning to understand that special concessions are not always the answer.  My heart wants to say it's a good thing.  A safe and accepting place where kids can be themselves AND learn without fear.  But on the other hand...is "segregation" really the answer?  It's been proven in many situations that most aspects of segregation are inferior - usually to the group considered 'less than' by the rest of society.

I think I could feel totally good about such places if they are used only until such time that the mainstream institutions adjust their settings to accomodate all people of all persuasions - with built-in deadlines, of course.  Otherwise, they could drag their feet under the guise of making improvements just to keep certain groups out.

I also see this as a form of being outted.  If a child has been being bullied, but really wasn't out in that setting, but then his parents (who know he's gay) agree to let him go to "Q High," this will eventually get out.  The child is outted as being GLBT in some form.  The parents are outted as being the parents of a GLBT child.  Being outted is one of the problems that parents and other family and friends have with someone they know being GLBT.
