Mod Note#2: a few new rules and clarification of old ones [Feb. 9th, 2008|08:04 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it


I put up a few rule changes (3.5, 6, 7, 8) and clarified rule 4 a little. This is due to some stuff hitting the fans in other communities I am a part of (not just LJ ones) that I hope to prevent from happening here.

hope all those are clear, if you have any questions, please just ask :D

OH! and I also updated the community email, it is to a gmail account that forwards to my personal account (so even if it gets spammed up I can easily delete and make a new one).

Male to Female, however you choose to say it
Okay well last weekend I came out ot the world and was able to tell my parents that I wanted a sex change (MTF) I'm all new to this and so I would like ot introduce myself. My journal has much more about me going to female but as for now I have no lead on anything becuase I just came out so I know its going to take a very long time before I even go to see someone. Yea I'm lost and need help with all this since I'm new. So here is my introduction.

so two things [Feb. 3rd, 2008|08:53 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it
The first being that after being assessed by the higher ups, MSP(medical services plan) of Vancouver has opted to cover my SRS. Which is sooooooooo dang awesome I wet myself periodically thinking about it(not really).

The conundrum as it were is as follows: My family while being totally supportive of my decision to transition has had some apprehension regarding the big snip snip as it were. While they want me to be happy and myself and all that jazz they still feel that i need to grow more in order to actually undergo the op. However, this was all expressed awhile back when it was thought that I would be paying for the op out of my own pocket. I'm somewhat hesitant to tell them the good news though as I don't know if i will be confronted with the same reaction or not. They've always said that they would rather i go forth, live on my own, have a steady boyfriend etc. before really taking the plunge. I really feel confused and overly anxious over the whole subject. I really just want some opinions, perhaps some advice, as to how i should handle the matter. Should i break the news and take the impending earful good or bad? Should i strike out on my own and live alone first before breaking the news? i mean the whole idea of being able to live under their roof was a big blessing so that i wouldn't have to recover on my own but should i just suck it up and take that risk? Seriously any suggestions?

Exercise for Chrissy [Feb. 1st, 2008|10:39 pm]

I went to the local health club this evening with Stacy. I did a HARD Walk for 10 minutes. Then it was off to the pool for the first time. First to the woman's locker room to get changed, then off to the pool. I received some strange looks, but nobody challenged me. I am very blessed by my breast development. But I find that the oriental women gave me the harshest looks. But fortunately I didn't let them daunt my ability to use the facilities with out too much discomfort. But I think that the more I go there and assert myself as the woman I am, then those looks will start to subside.

For those wondering, I am pre-op. As I said earlier, I am well developed up top.

Numerous rejections; The list does seem to be growing. [Feb. 1st, 2008|01:56 am]

[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

1) Most of my family has shunned me.

2) I was recently forced out of my congregation, sinful bitch that I am, being born with an incongruity between body and mind.

3) I have lost most of my friends.

Yet, I am positive about my future, as a fulfilled woman.

One of my New Year's resolutions for 2008, is to remain unfailingly POSITIVE and my life is so much better, now.

I have hope, in my future.

Now a 38DD [Feb. 1st, 2008|01:30 am]

I had gotten a BA really too early in my transition, as the opportunity to have it executed was somewhat  "handed to me upon a silver platter", but especially after switching from oral estradiol to Delestrogen IM [i had a mini-stroke whilst on the oral variant], breast growth has been quite aggressive.

If this keeps up, I'll be carrying these things in a wheelbarrow, in a couple of years.

G L B T Find Out What It Means To Me [Jan. 29th, 2008|09:14 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it

Ok just about no one here likely knows me but I feel I have to get this post out so am posting it in a lot of places as well as my own LJ.

Alright boys and girls this one has been a little bit coming but I've been reading too many blogs where it's mentioned and I want to weigh in even if I've got next to no audience...

GLBT four letters those of us in the community hear a lot and probably think about too.  I'm a transsexual part of the T in those four little letters which in some places become many more letter with many more meanings.  The question I want to ask you is are we a letter or a community?  I am no more just a transsexual than I am many of the other things that make up who I am.  As far as I consider the larger community that that one aspect of myself makes me I call myself and those others in that group Queer.  It's one word it means something and it helps to bring us all together into one group not four or more individual groups fighting for a common cause but ONE single group that stands up for one another and fights as one.  A great person once said "United we stand divided we fall."  Right now if you ask me We are not standing united and therefore we fall to the attacks of those who stand united against us.

I know there are people who do not like the word queer because of the way it has been used against them as a slur.  You know there are communities out there who have taken slurs and taken the power back of those words and used them for themselves.  In the 90's the slogan "We're Queer! We're here! Get used to it!" was used rather effectively we need to continue that, we need to take our word back and use it.  If you don't like it then give me another better SINGLE word to use instead.  I hope others will join me in rejecting being a letter and instead being a community.

There's my two cents take it or leave it.

First Day [Jan. 29th, 2008|06:26 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it

I just wanted to share the good news.

Yesterday was my first day at work as Crystal. I was super freaking nervous going in but everything went swimmingly. Today was Day 2 and it went even better. Everyone I work with is very cool with everything and weren't too shy about approaching me with questions and such. I'm kind of busy so this post is short, I just wanted to let everyone know that there is a silver lining.
