  1. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    Thanks, everyone. I meant to make several posts a few weeks ago, but didn't like the way they sounded. Anyways, I've ingested the first of my lady pills. 2mg Estradiol and 25mg Spironolactone. Today also marks the institution of my half-liquid diet consisting of fruit smoothies and chicken sandwiches.

    The verdict is in! As soon as I can get an appointment with Endocrinology, I'll be on hormones! At a conservative estimate, I expect I'll look like Jennifer Lawrence by July.

    Rock on, sistah-girl. Do you not get your meds from the V.A. because you have a better option, or... something else? If you don't mind me asking. Otherwise, I'm curious to get your opinions on 'presentation' after I go full time. I'm very sarcastic and deadpan, and I generally say nothing in groups until the perfect joke opportunity arises. One of my biggest fears is that I won't be able to operate socially as I do now, I'm actually quite fond of my monotone snarkiness and I know I won't be able to pull that off as a woman. Meanwhile, I think I wanna do one of those over-the-years transition videos in 3 or 4 years but instead of setting it to an Abba song or whatever I want it to be to the theme of Jurassic Park or 48 Hours Mystery.
  4. Lies your mother told you

    "I'm your mother." I haven't proven it yet, but I've recently procured a lock of her hair for DNA testing.

    Re-reading my post it seems I worded it quite poorly. I know what transdermal is I just didn't know it was an option. As for the implant I was curious about whether they actually made an incision or injected the device with a large needle. You've answered that question, however. As for I.V. vs I.M., I assumed injections would be I.M., but in pretty much every video I've watched on the YouTube the girls refer to them as I.V. I'm sure that's just ignorance on their part, but I couldn't be sure. Am I just horrible at google, or is it kinda difficult to find reliable and clear information?

    Wow. I have seriously thought you were a well-informed Canadian for like literally 3 years (about the time I got banned and then started stalking the forums anonymously). That's an interesting link, and I don't know of any similar operations near where I am (the shit-heart of Tennessee). Mostly unrelated, but a line in that article made me irrationally angry (not for the first time). This is something that annoys me to no end. I was actually asked this by my therapist while I was in the Army, the 2nd person I ever told, and despite what I would call my generally cool and collected self I almost walked out of the room. I'm sure that factoid is true of some, but I didn't join the Army to 'prove I'm a man' or whatever. I joined the Army with the knowledge that having "Honorably Discharged Veteran" on my resume would make just about every facet of my life marginally easier in the long run and that I could afford to go to college afterwards without financially ruining myself. So, I feel insulted whenever it's implied that I joined in a display of machismo or to prove something to someone (especially myself). Sorry, little rant. Tuscon and Cleveland? One almost wonders if they're established in such places out of malicious intent. Money, honey. As long as the hormones are in the proper dosage and the 'scripts are refillable, I don't care who's writing them. It could be Ted Cruz or Rush Limbaugh for all I care. I can only reliably go on Saturdays for work reasons, and the money is too good for me to bother letting an outside influence... well, influence that. I've already established that the V.A. hospital here treats on Saturdays, they're just obviously harder appointments to get. But I'm willing/able to schedule well in advance. Money first, then I'll buy my happiness.
  7. What's it like where you live?

    So I'm confused about Australia now. I'd been given to understand your government had lent strongly conservative, to the point of censorship of movies and videogames. As a self-described artist, I find any form of censorship to be extremely disturbing, and I'd assumed that such conservatism would naturally extend to other civil liberties (of significant personal concern) to be 'censored' as well. I'm gathering that you guys are saying this isn't the case.

    I didn't even know there was a transdermal option... What's the implantation method? I'd been expecting to fight for intravenous, as I've heard good things about injection over oral, but transdermal has me quite interested. How do you know so much about stuff? Aren't you like Canadian? I know that the V.A. has to treat me, and I'm prepared to spout off regulations as/if needed to ensure my proper care, but what of these 'transgender programs' you speak of? Are you referring to their compulsion to treat me or something else? To be completely honest, I'm not much of the 'group' type, and that includes support groups. If that's what you're describing.
  9. What's it like where you live?

    England and Germany were already on the short list, glad to hear nice things about them so far.
  10. What's it like where you live?

    I haven't lived in Colorado in over a year, I got out last October. Admittedly I didn't mix at all with the civilian populace out there, and we both know the varying degrees of character that can be represented on an Army base. Anyway, I've spent the last year and change living back in Indiana, from which I've now moved to Tennessee (with no intention to ever return to Indiana). I know these are the shittiest parts of the country, and like I said I liked Colorado. But unfortunately moving to a new state doesn't change the fact that the retards in southern Alabama still get a say in my rights as a human being at the federal level. Furthermore, again, while legal weed is pretty dope there's nothing else in Colorado for me. I like weed, but I don't like it like that, and there's no colleges in the state that appeal to me. Also, no unique career opportunities that appeal to me.

    I appreciate the technical details very much, thank you. I have a very dark and thick beard (not half bad looking to be honest), so to be clear you're saying I should do the laser to clear up for electrolysis? As for other questions, I've got some specific inquiries about being post-op (you're about a year, right?), timeline for effects, and of course boobs. Of course there's a host of other questions from proper skin and hair care to things like disclosure, but those questions will come in due time. If you're willing to answer said questions but would prefer to have those conversations via PM, lemme know. And obviously thank you in advance. Thanks
  12. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    Thanks. I don't think I'll have time for a trans-specific counselor, as I will be out of town Monday through Friday every week and I'll need the Saturday for Dr.s appointments and electrolysis. I need to pick your brain on a number of things if you're willing to indulge, but let's start with the facial hair. I was given to understand that laser removal wasn't permanent? I will be able to afford electrolysis (scheduling will be the issue), and my research suggests that it takes as much as 400 hours of treatment to completely clear the facial hair. I intended to start on that as soon as humanly possible. What's the benefit of laser removal in this situation?
  13. What's it like where you live?

    I broke the quote function (WTF happened to this site?) Iskaral, I can assure you I'm not catfishing (that's something people do as a joke right?) However, there may be some merit to what you're saying. Unfortunately for me I seem to always be consigned to the shittiest parts of America, that's just where the money has been. Alas, with the giving up of my life's goal in pursuit of a life worth living I don't have much incentive to stay in a country that doesn't seem to like me back. Like I said earlier, I've lived as west as Colorado and I really liked it, but there's nothing for me out there. If I'm gonna abandon all the stuff I know and move 2,000 miles (which I'm cool with), I might as well at least consider a new country to call home if I think it might be a better fit. Lys, I don't dislike people. Quite the opposite, I'm a very social creature and I've actually always wanted to be an entertainer of some sorts or failing that a teacher. The problem I'm starting to have with people (and I hope this is an American thing, as every non-American seems to assure me) is the willful ignorance. Like I mentioned for those two important points, I don't like religion and I don't like idiotic preachers. Maybe this goes back to where I've been living in the U.S. but it seems like basically everyone I know is secretly one or the other and I keep hearing that not everyone is like that. I guess what I'm looking for is a place where the following things happen, in general, as I understand that Utopia does not exist: 1) I pay my taxes 2) My rights as a human being (and citizen) are respected by the law at least, regardless of sex, sexuality, race, religion, or preference in television 3) People aren't objectively horrible. There's bastards everywhere, I'd prefer to live in a place where they're generally regarded as the minority 4) There's a generally low chance that I'll get murdered walking to the store 5) Education is seen as a more important issue than making sure faggots don't have civil rights 6) If I'm good at my job, I will get to keep doing it Again, I know Utopia isn't a real thing, but I think those are the basic requirements (backed up by my own research, not just the word of someone on the internet, though your word is appreciated) I'd need to consider moving out of this country permanently. Someone mentioned studying abroad. That's an interesting idea, and I've never even thought about it before, but I'm pretty sure I don't have that kind of scratch. I'm gonna be making enough money over the next two years that I can afford to go to school full time even for 4 years easily and still have my G.I. Bill for my pursuit of a masters, but that's at American rates. I shudder to think of how quickly my account would be sucked dry by studying abroad.
  14. What's it like where you live?

    Well, the point of the exercise was to get an unclouded opinion of the living conditions of peoples' home countries without influencing the answers too much. Though I suppose a bit of background could be helpful. 1) I don't wanna live in a place where my rights as a citizen are seriously jeopardized by a bunch of morons' interpretation of a book that some dude reads to them once a week. 2) I don't want to sit down in a bar and get a filibuster type speech about the tyranny of ____________ and how ___________ needs MORE ____________ from some dumbass who's second-grade interpretation of U.S. Government apparently makes him qualified to run his stupid fucking mouth. So basically, I don't like the perverse saturation of religion in America, and I don't like Americans' tendency to try and convert everyone they see to their way of thinking unasked. As I grow a little older every year, I find America less and less diverse. It seems to be a 'us' vs 'them' country to me. Half are always nailing themselves to a cross while the other half bemoan their having been nailed to a cross. It's fucking annoying, and literally seeps into every part of life.
  15. What's it like where you live?

    Yeah, Colorado was a pretty nice place. I was stationed at Ft. Carson for about 2 years. Carson may have been a shithole, but I really liked the mountains and the weather and even the Springs was a decent enough town. Trouble is, there's nothing for me in CO, in any capacity. And I don't think I'd want to deal with being that close to a base. England seems fairly appealing except for that last bit. Are you saying those things exist, or that they're rampant? Kinda a big deal for me personally.
