[Here are links to the first two – Trying to look back through the gender fog (part 1) and Trying to look back through the gender fog (part 2)] Part 3 of gender fog basically gives my best shot at this time in answering have I been a female all my life. I say “best shot” because […]Read More Trying to look back through the gender fog (part 3)
On Saturday (July 10, 2021) I celebrated two years of transitioning. Yay! Like my one year transitioning transversary I did it at Bonefish Grill. For awhile I was thinking about not celebrating it. Like the waiter at the one year one celebration said “you never get a second first year.” But, then I said, ‘hey, […]Read More Celebrating Two Years of Transitioning
I will start and say this was the third transversary I have celebrated. All of them at Bone Fish Grill. The first two were My One Year Mark of Transitioning Celebration and Stephie’s Two Year Birthday Celebration. One year of transitioning was the first. My two years as Stephie was the second, and perhaps the most important […]Read More My Transversary Celebration of One Year on HRT

Although, he did point blank ask if I was on hormones, and what I was going to do about my hair. My mother […]Read More A Daughter and Her Father
I got the idea to write a post about saying “fuck” to passing from reading Rachel Ann Williams’ chapter: “Learning to say ‘fuck’ to passing” in her book Transgressive (for my review of this book see – A Review of a Transgender Book). As I now remember little about the specifics of this chapter or […]Read More Saying “Fuck” to Passing
After initiating a legal name change this summer I am legally Stephie Iris. I posted about what had transpired so far towards this destination in One More Step to My Legal Name Change. I left off there at the publication of the legal notice of the petition. Thursday I decided to check the progress of my […]Read More It’s Legal, Yay!
I recently received a free 3 month trial of Amazon Prime’s Kindle Unlimited when I purchase a new Kindle. Since, then (mid-September) I have read a number of transgender and gender diverse books.1 The quality and substance fell into a range of very good to horrendous. But, that is not the point of this post. […]Read More Don’t Define Me
Actually, it began before I started to live my life as a woman. Even before I fully identified as a woman. I remember during the four years of exploring my femininity before identifying as a woman how I look forward to every chance I could get to get dressed up and explore my body sexually.† […]Read More How Transitioning Has Taken Over My Life
