I was asked a question by two Tenn. State Legislators about being T/S. "Why is there so many different catagories" my answer was this---I beleive that your referring to being ransgendered. Which has several diffinitions with in it.

We as being in the T/S community know where the train will end up at (the final destination). We can get off at any point along the way and visit and then return to the train ride to the next stop. We may choose to stay at any stop where we feel comfortable, and return to the train ride at any time to the next stop if we so desire.

There are may reasons that we or some of us can never reach the final destination of full transition. There can be many reasons such as financial, medical, ect. This does not mean that we are not real T/S. For some of my sisters we grow into the knowledge and the reality of being T/S. As for myself I have known that I was a girl from the age of 6 years old. This does not make me more T/S than one of my friends who was born intersexed (both sex organs) or nother girl friend who has come to the realization that she is T/S. For most of my sisters we have to have a congruency between our brains and our bodies and must have the congruency know matter what the cost. Would you be willing to lose everything that you hold dear to your heart's and lives to be a whole complete person? We must all come to that point within our own lives.

Several of the State Legislators told me that they had never had a T/S in their office before. They asked me to please stop in and talk with them any time that I was in Nashville. Two gentlemen offered to take me to lunch and discuss these issues more fully at any time.

Yes I am a activist and yes I am out there, I try to not be in anyones face about my life. I do really like to try to educate people about the fact that we are human beings who live real lives, and that we are not what is seen on the Jerry Springer show.

I beleive that I helped a couple of the Tennessee State Legislators to realize that we are real human beings, with real lives, who are productive members of society, that we hold a relationship with our creator, and that we also vote.
This past Tuesday with the Equality Day on the hill was very enriching for me as a woman.

Just thought I would pass this along.

Hugs and be well,

I wish I had been there!

Cheney Shooting

I put the following in a PS to a friend:

How did Cheney get 200 pellets in his friend at 30 yards? And inside him far enough to irritate his heart enough to cause something like a heart attack.

We won't even think about the beers and the long delay in talking to the police.

Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other lyrics.

Pansy Division and Willie Nelson sing:

There's many a strange impulse out on the plains of West Texas;

There's many a young boy who feels things he don't comprehend.

Well small town don't like it when somebody falls between sexes,

No, small town don't like it when a cowboy has feelings for men.

Well I believe in my soul that inside every man there's a feminine,

And inside every lady there's a deep manly voice loud and clear.

Well, a cowboy may brag about things that he does with his women,

But the ones who brag loudest are the ones that are most likely queer.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other —

What did you think those saddles and boots was about?

There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels towards his brother,

Inside every cowboy there's a lady who'd love to slip out.

Ten men for each woman was the rule way back when on the prairie,

And somehow those cowboys must have kept themselves warm late at night.

Cowboys are famous for getting riled up about fairies,

But I'll tell you the reason a big strong man gets so uptight:

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other —

That's why they wear leather, and Levi's and belts buckled tight.

There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels towards his brother;

There's many a cowboy who's more like a lady at night.

Well there's always somebody who says what the others just whisper,

And mostly that someone's the first one to get shot down dead:

When you talk to a cowboy don't treat him like he was a sister

Don't mess with the lady that's sleepin' in each cowboy's head.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other —

Even though they take speed and drive pickups and shoot their big guns;

There's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels towards his brother;

There's many a cowboy who keeps quiet about things he's done.

Hello girls,

I just got this in the mail today. Brini Maxwell is a "crossdresser" from New York City that has a TV show on the Style Network that is so funny.

She plays the host of a show giving advice on cooking and decorating etc. She outdoes most women in the femm department. Just amazing, and so low key and FUNNY. Too bad it is on hiatus right now.

There is a sample podcast. I can hardly wait for more.

Hugs, Vickie
