au naturel

I continue to be very pleased with the Silk'n hair removal apparatus and have zero regrets about having purchased it. It is doing the job prompting me to think that technology certainly has come a long way.

There are spots where the hair growth has almost come to a standstill and I can see how a few more months of use could deliver amazing results which includes the face which I have treating in selected spots that didn't have a chance to respond to laser all those years ago.

My daughter has now begun to use it based on my testimonial.

The picture below is of me using the least amount of makeup ever: light foundation, loose powder and a light fleshy coloured lipstick. Everything took all of 5 minutes to apply.


NB: Dr Morris responded to me after I emailed him the article on blood clots:

"Of course. The real question is the long-term risk of estrogen. The study is complicated by the use of anti-androgens which also increase the risk of thrombosis. But the alternative....?"

  1. I'm waiting to hear from my endocrinologist friend about HRT and blood clots. Thankfully if all goes as planned I'll no longer need anti-androgens late in 1Q19!

    And as he wrote: "But the alternative...?" This is exactly what my therapist said when I vacillated about starting hormone therapy. To each her own of course but for me the benefits outweigh the risks. Easy to say now of course...

    1. The alternative is of course to live without HRT which many of us are not willing to do.

One transgender woman's take on AGP

This entry from the transhealth website dates back to 2001 and it offers a very nice dissection of the now mostly debunked but still controversial AGP theory and how this transgender woman could care two cents about it. People who have been trying to marginalize the experience of gynephilic transwomen have pushed for the stigmatizing idea that they are actually perverted men. Well this soul, who couldn't give a hoot either way, isn't buying any of it and her frankness at times had me chuckling to myself as I read her posting. If we ever met I would give her a hug for seeing through the BS but mostly for being herself: "About a year ago I was reading on Dr. Anne Lawrence’s site about a new theory of the origin of trans called “autogynephilia.” This theory asserts that many trans women—and transsexual women in particular—desire reassignment surgery because they are eroticizing the feminization of their bodies. The first thing that struck me about it, of course, was t

Never Say Never....

 I was certain that I would never post here again and yet, here I am. It’s been several years, and life has changed me yet again. I have burrowed further into my psyche to discover more internal truths about myself all in the silence of a life lived with more periods of reflective solitude than ever before. After attempting for many years to be a problem solver for others, I needed to dig deeply to discover who I was, which should be a necessity for all people and an absolute imperative for those of us who dare rub against the grain of conventional society. The most important thing we can do for ourselves is honor the internal voice which has driven us since childhood. That whisper which we were compelled to ignore through our initial indoctrination must be listened to again for guidance. I knew I had spent too long heeding messaging that wasn’t working for me as a trans person, and it was time to stop. For the world gleefully basks in a level ignorance and hypocrisy we are not abl

my last post

This will be my last blog post. When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion. With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in. Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We
