What’s It Like?

Okay, what is what like? What is it like being a transgender woman? I am not talking about what’s it like to live as a woman who’s sex assigned at birth doesn’t match her gender identity, but that internal sense or feeling of my being a woman. It is possible that it is no different […]

I am not a Guy

Everyone got that. This is my response to being included in the phrase “you guys” or it’s use at all in mixed company. “Oh, don’t be so sensitive Stephie, it’s not meant to misgender anyone, it is just a common phrase you use to address a group.” Well, I will, hopefully, explain way I am […]

I Have A New Provider

I had a most wonderful visit with a new provider—A psych provider. She is a psychiatric nurse practitioner. The reason why I am seeing her is specifically to get a letter of recommendation from a competent mental health provider for vaginoplasty surgery. WPATH’s Standard of Care (SOC) recommendations for this surgery includes two letters from […]
