Strange Epiphany

...and just like that, I have remembered the how, the where, and the approximate when of the time and place that I first realised what I was. I must have been about eleven, or certainly no older than my early teens. Prior to then there had been awareness, confusion, and anxiety that "boyishness" was not... Continue Reading →

Official Entity

Well it's only a small victory, but I had to resist the urge not to go SQUEEEEEE!!! quite loudly when something dropped through the post today. Especially as I examined all of the small print... No doubt some will be horrified at the apparent ease with which one can earn that little "F" in this... Continue Reading →

A Very Feminine Flood…

Today we returned from visiting our family in France again, and just to give some idea of the degree of effort my in-laws are putting into coming to terms with their unexpected acquisition of a trans-daughter-in-law, I will give a quick inventory of the presents I have had from them over the last two visits......

Prodigal Daughter?

In last week's news, another old cliché took a battering...

One can thus imagine my surprise when I attended a mindfulness and meditation session at... Continue Reading →

That is to say, although they cannot actually diagnose me with gender dypshoria prior to the... Continue Reading →

However, it has been so long that I might as well take stock at ths point and ask how far things have come in four(ish) months. Modelling is going well. Having built a portfolio from...

Letting the Side Down

[Previous post redacted, due to having become stupidly redundant...] Originally on this blog, I posted some questions to the deep ecology group Deep Green Resistance, just in case tags and keywords actually work and they felt like dropping by... which, unamazingly, they didn't. I have since followed the rational, nay obvious course and just taken... Continue Reading →

Beige Utopia

A while back (and in this post) I confessed to an anxiety that my desire to become, in some measure, a "lady" meant that my gender dysphoria had a morbid and regressive side to it: a desire to enact an outmoded, antifeminist gender model... which immediately drew some fire from the Radical Feminist trenches. Though... Continue Reading →
