So, this morning (9/23/22) I mailed off to Social Security all the necessary paperwork and documents for them to change my sex marker. This change will eventually go to my Medicare and Medicaid accounts, and so future providers need not know of the difference between feminine name and male sex marker. This should lead to […]Read More Mailed

This post looks back to my thoughts when I first began to transition. Before that when I first recognized my womanhood I was quite unsure of myself. What do I do? It took about five months to come out to my partner, Bette. Even then I didn’t know whether I would transition or be a […]Read More Possible?
Since I recognized my womanhood, there are things about my life I didn’t expect, either to change or develop for the first time. Here I have thought of nine: how much more I am into clothes; the development of mommy hands; that hormone treatment would work so well; explore my sexuality so keenly; become emotionally […]Read More Things I Didn’t Expect
[Note – what I describe of myself should not be taken as prescriptive. It does not seek to defend femininity as necessarily being an aspect of having a female gender as I am aware that not all who have a female gender have any necessary connection to femininity as such.
