Transgender Warning: Transgender stuff to follow!

Transgender Warning: Transgender stuff to follow!
There are now hundreds of articles, neat pictures and videos here, that are mostly trans* related.

I found this during a search for the word 'transexual' in blogs.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

(Repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong.)

My first "ma'am" while dressed in drab.

I was shopping at Kroger on Friday, and the lady giving out free samples of Pizza Bits gave me my first "ma'am" while dressed as a guy. I did not say any thing but wanted to give her a hug. I am not sure how it happened. LOL Probably just did not look up, because the only real "clue" might have been my now shoulder length hair.

Any way, thank you "Ma'am!"

I found these cool clocks

Some one told me about Brini Maxwell Show

I am not sure what Brini Maxwell is but she sure is funny. One girl called her Martha Stewart in drag. "Why didn't you think of that?"

The show airs: Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on the Style Network. (The link doesn't seem to work in Foxfire.)

Did you see Donna Rose in TransGeneration?

I went to a workshop given by Donna Rose at Southern Comfort. Unfortunately I was having a blond morning that continued well into the afternoon, and got there very late and had to stand in the back. It looked just like this screen shot take from the show.

Donna Rose was giving a talk on:

Yin & Yang: Finding Balance in Your T-Ness by Donna Rose.
A key concept in finding fulfillment in life is balance. Finding it is difficult. Keeping it seems almost impossible. How can you prevent your “T-ness” from becoming an all-consuming poison pill in your life? In your relationships? In your career? This unique workshop will provide some healthy thoughts and strategies to consider. (This text was borrowed from the SSC web site.)

Since I was so late I am not too sure what she actually said, but my impression of Donna was that everyone really loved her. She had such a way about her that made people just drawn to her. It was pretty amazing. I felt bad being there so late.

Anyway, In TransGeneration she was giving a seminar that Gabbie, one of the M2F girls attended. I was pleasantly surprised to see her in the show.

I Googled "Donna Rose" and found her website and learned a lot about her. She is quite the activist. (I be Moressa knows her well. LOL)

She also has a collection of 2005 SCC pictures that you can see.
