Silk'n

Recently I bought one of those HPL hair removal units called Silk’n Flash and Go. I saw it at the woman’s show and had also remembered seeing it at a pharmacy in Toronto and had made a mental note to consider purchasing one at some point.

I should mention here that I have had 6 treatments of facial hair removal over 10 years ago which all hurt like the devil but were worth the effort. What is left now is a mixture of dark and white hairs and I am told that this product could help with that. Even if it only helps a little on the face I know it works on the body based on the numerous testimonials on the net and the discussion I had with the couple that owns the shop where I purchased mine. Both had tried it on themselves to make sure they could sell it to their customers. It works with high intensity light much like a laser and kills the hair at the root.

My aim is to eliminate or reduce the frequency of shaving legs, underarms and chest with any reduction in the face as a bonus.

The unit is small and easy to use from the get-go. I have had it for about two weeks now and have tried several areas which will be zapped again in another two weeks as recommended by the company. I can attest that it is virtually painless compared to the laser I was exposed to proving technology just keeps getting better.

I will keep you posted on the results.

how times change

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...


indoctrination

As transgender people, organized religion hasn't really been our friend however on the other hand it has often had little to do with true spirituality. I needed to learn this over time and much of what I was taught growing up was steeped in the judgmental superstition of society instead of what some creator would demand of me.

Regardless of your belief system, you are a child of the universe and have been endowed with uniqueness and goodness of spirit. You have probably never wished anyone ill will and you have tried your best to live within the absurd coordinate system of humanity. Yet somehow belonging to the LGBT community was entirely your fault.

As I have grown older this inherent irrationality became increasingly evident to me. I knew I was a fundamentally good person and yet I was different in a way which was not of my choosing. Hence with this comprehension my self appreciation and esteem grew in proportion.

Religion for me today seems forever trapped in the misinterpretat…

more thoughts on cross gender arousal

I have been reflecting for many years on how cross gender arousal originates.

Firstly, the transgender child has already exhibited (or hidden) some gender variance for several years before they arrive at puberty (I wasn't older than 4 when scolded for wearing my mother's shoes). But when they hit puberty a dilemma occurs: the object of the sexual attraction is also someone whose gender they identify with either fully or partly. This contradiction affects the imprinting of the sexual identity but it is not well described as target location error but rather as a pull in two separate directions which leaves the gynephilic adolescent facing two distinct paths. I was keenly aware of this problem but wanted to be normal so I suppressed the dysphoric feelings as hard as I could. I wasn't attracted to my own image as a woman but rather to the idea of being a desirable woman as well as being with one. That juxtaposition fused to my gender core and I was left with a riddle to solve:…
