      I, like most of you have known since I was quite young that I LOVE being feminine. That being said I have hid, felt shame, and not acted on impulses because I was afraid of being "abnormal". I had very few positive role models, unlike today. There are many famous, popular, beautiful, and successful trans folk now days and I love it!

      I am now 40y/o and I honestly believe that if I were just now 15 y/o or there abouts, I would make the decision to live full time as a woman. I would not have SRS, but hormones and plastic surgery would be a certainty.

      I feel like these new model folks have it just a wee bit easier than us older gals lol


      Do any of you agree? What are your thoughts?

      yes they have got it a lot more easy but making choices still takes guts. But on the flip side, seeing as society is so much more accepting than it ever was, why does that not mean that regardless of age anyone can take advantage and live fulltime as whatever they want to be?

      The world is such a different place and it's still changing, there are some winners and there will be some losers, and likely some sore losers, and we need to make it so that we are all winners... We need to show compassion, compassion will be our greatest strength. Support for all is more important, regardless of wether we agree on all the pedantic nit picking areas.

      I totally agree that it takes guts, but it also takes understanding one's self. I knew I was different than other boys for a fact, I always hung out with girls and felt so "right" when I presented myself as feminine. The age part comes into play with me because I "forced" myself to live the "normal" hetero male lifestyle. So I made choices that now make it a million times more difficult to become Emily, even for short periods. As a matter of fact I am going to go into withdrawals if I don't get to shave smooth and slip into something sexy! lol

      I admit to being envious of the youngsters with accepting parents who come out to our youth groups. Many of them started living the gender of their choice in early teens. Some have had hormone treatments.
      I was rejected by a male lover when I tried to dress in the mid 70's. I went off and married and raised a son and buried my femme identity. I don't regret doing that, family times were wonderful and happy times and. though I am not yet out to my son we have a good relationship. I did in later life become more and more interested in being femme and less in my masculine life. Being single and getting sober at 62 I started coming out and am more and more comfortable being dressed and out. This week is Pride in my city and I will be working the shifts at the trans table Fri. Sat. and Sun. and riding in the parade with our trans community on Sun. I am envious of the young people and the acceptance they have today but I've had a good life and I'm still enjoying it

      Well, for me it must kind of happened at the right time. The first incling I had to my feminine side came just before my longest term relationship, I realise and acknowledge that now. Such desires were put to one side and ultimately disposed with for many years, the urge just went. Then, at a festival it was suggested I dress as a woman for fancy dress. I enjoyed it so much it hadvto be done again. Around where I live people are very accepting. I've never had any bad reactions. If anything at all it's people expressing their admiration at someone 'going for it' and usually involves high fives and congratulations. I don't think it would have been the same twenty odd, ok thirty ( and I'm taking it no further back than that) years ago as back then I looked so much like a girl without wanting to that lads would whistle at me in the street, then realise I wasn't a girl and get annoyed at their own mistake. That element of feeling like they've been somehow caught out is gone. The macho stance of 'I thought it was a woman but it's a man' so that means I've been ogling a man! Is gone, for one, Beyond that, it seems most are just too busy to be bothered or have successfully been fed media messages that constitute trans people of any kind as being cool. Not everyone's experience, but a set of situations more often experienced these days than in the past that's for sure. Around here the local police are great, as are the gangs of youths, more fascinated than anything else and never abusive in any way. Here's hoping it stays that way.

      I found being 15 first time round a realy difficult time and glad I never have to go back to that time again.
      Having said that, knowing what I know now, I think I would have made a lovely girlie, while my skin was still smooth and flawless and the whites of my eyes still whiter than white.
      Didn't get to dressing up untill late 50's, crikey, mummy would have s*"t herself !! Daddy would have taken to drink...um..daddy would have taken to drink EVEN MORE !
      Crumbs the amount of cock I would have consumed by now would be measurable in yards! Nay, I lie...parts of a mile! (Ooouh, came over a bit giddy.)
      Yes the more readily open mindedness would be refreshing. Even now I am still learning about myself like, I could, have, kissed a fem
      girlie and would like to do it again. I have no interest at all in kissing your average man though? Peculier it certainly is but there you go?
      (I wish you could see more of what you've just written, it's tricky keeping the context going.) Definetly 'horses for courses.'
