    • Hi Lori-

      Welcome to TGS, girl. You are absolutely right, this is a great place to start and a great place to stay. You are very welcome here, please make yourself at home and if you have any questions about the site, please feel free to contact me or any of the other mods. Have a great day, hope it doesn's snow on you too much.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • Well Hello Girls, my name is Lori out of Kansas City and am new here. Looks like a wonderful place to be. Getting ready for another snow here about 7", so might be busy for the latter half of the week.
      I do have a profile up and please feel free to check it out. Life is getting much much better. Missed places like this.

    • Hi Heather-

      Or should I say, "Howdy, gal!" Don't worry, I'm not teasing you, I'm originally from San Antonio myself. In fact I was back there this summer for a couple of weeks. If only I had known we could have gone out for a cuppa or a drink.

      Hon, you are so welcome here. Please make yourself at home and just relax and know you're among friends. Speaking for myself, I think TGS is probably the best site on the web for girls like us, you'll be able to find help, resources, information and most especially friends and understanding.

      If there's anything I can help with, please let me know.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • Hi Heather,

      Hugs & kisses,

    • Hello Heather and welcome.
      Nice to hear from you.

    • January 18, 2011 6:07 AM GMT
    • Hi all you gorgeous ladies out there, I've been wanting to say HELLO and introduce myself to the Community. My name is Heather and my profile pretty much explains why I'm here. I'm kinda new at this social networking thing, so please bear with me. Anyway, I don,t get much time for socializing because I work alot, which is a bummer. I've been trying to find a new job, one where I can be myself full time, one day hopefully it will happen. Well enough of that, I like watching movies, Rock and Roll music (all kinds, anything from soft to heavy metal), WWE and TNA wrestling, and just love shopping especially clothes and shoes. Well I need to run, looking forward to meeting and chatting with some new friends soon. xoxo- Heather

    • I'm not currently here at the moment. However, if you would like to leave a message after the beep I will get back to you promptly, beeeeeeeep.....

    • Hi Suzzii-

      Good morning. Care for some coffee? Cups are in the cupboard to the right. I just got up, it's about 0630 here on the left coast. If there's anything I can do, let me know.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • January 11, 2011 1:38 PM GMT
    • Hi Suzie,
      If you mean on the site just now, well I'm here and you can always check via the "whose here" feature to check if any of the rest of the girls are logged in.
      If you mean are there any other intelligent life forms out-with our planet? Well given the size of the universe and the amount of potentially life bearing planets there has to be somebody out there.
      But given the vast distances involved I doubt we'll ever get to meet them face to face (if they have faces) but I do think radio communication would be possible.
      Anyway keep looking at the sky, you just never know.
      Meep! Meep!

    • January 11, 2011 1:19 PM GMT
    • Where, here? nearly always someone about in here.

    • January 11, 2011 12:52 PM GMT
    • Is there ?

    • January 12, 2011 8:18 PM GMT
    • I see Joni has been splicing the mainbrace again....and again....and again.....

      Welcome to TGS and ignore Joni. There is no cabin on a Soling.

    • Hi Janie, it's good to meet you. I'm glad you found us. I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for here amongst us.

    • Ahoy Janie!

      Welcome to TGS! You're going to make a lot of new friends here hon...you're really going to love this place! Looking forward to meeting you in the chat room!

      Hugs & kisses,

      Monika

    • January 11, 2011 7:00 PM GMT
    • Hi Janie,welcome to the site. I'm sure you will meet some great people here I know I have. I look forward to bumping into you from time to time. Take care. Love lillith x

    • January 11, 2011 6:50 PM GMT
    • Hi Janie and welcome sis.

    • January 11, 2011 6:50 PM GMT
    • Ahoy there, Janie. Mizzen the mainmast, keelhaul the bozen, serve out the grog.

      Pretty nautical, huh. Just fooling around, what I really wanted to do was make you welcome here, I hope you like it. I know I do, as you can see from how long I've been around. To me it's the best place on the web for girls like us, at least I think so. And as you said, it's not about sex and getting hooked up and stuff like that.

      Anyway, welcome aboard (more nautical stuff), please make yourself at home. Now if I can just find that lazy cabingirl, Wendy, to help you stow your gear. She's probably hiding out in hopes of another flogging.

      If you have any questions or anything, please let me or any of the other mods know and we'll be glad to help out.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • Hi everyone, my name is Janie and I thought I'd say hello!
      I'm a crossdressing sailor girl living in Plymouth (UK) and I've just joined as this site looks really nice (and not just about sex, unlike some others)
      I've been dressing since my teens (39 now), just because it always felt right. I've gone through the usual denial phases and wardrobe purges, but I'm feeling kinda good about myself and my 'passions' at the moment, which is really great!
      Hopeing to meet and make some new friends,
      See you around,
      Janie xx

    • Hi Suzzii-

      Welcome, hon, and Happy New Year to you. You have certainly come to the right place to make friends and find help, resources, and information. Most especially, you won't be hit on here, TGS is not a dating site and rude, crude, lewd and otherwise impolite behavior is strictly not tolerated.

      Other than that, anything goes. Please feel free to speak your mind on any of the forums or chats, though you may find some contradiction and argumentation. There are a lot of very strong minded and opinionated girls here who aren't afraid to say what they think. But you will also find help and support and understanding and a shoulder to cry on if you need it. We all know what it's like, and though, perhaps, our destinations may be different, we are all on the same journey.

      If you should need some help with the site, feel free to ask me or any of the other mods and we will do all we can to help out. May the Goddess bless you and hold you close in the coming year.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • Hi, I`m Suzzii and have just discovered and joined this site in last couple of days. I`ve been dressing since I was 20 and as time goes on seem to keep loving it ever more and just wanting to get as girly and feminised as I possibly can! And would so love some t-girl friends to love it all with,chat etc etc. It`s only in the last few months that I`ve come across the whole internet transgender scene, realised the extent of it and how many of us are out there! Have tried a couple of other sites and am already sick to death of men, their c**k pics and monosalavik and lewd messages ( = I wanna f*** u behind my wife`s back - asap!).
      Really hoping The Gender Society is what I`ve been looking for and somewhere to meet genuine, likeminded girls.....I`ve got plenty of mates and a full social diary ordinarily,but time really has come for new special friends just like me, new experiences, new places..... One of these days I might even get to 1 of the tranny nightclubs - that would be amazing!!

    • Hi Audrey,welcome to the community. I'm sure you will find plenty of friends,advice and support here. Feel free to drop me a line anytime. Take care love Lillith x

    • December 10, 2010 4:03 AM GMT
    • Hi Audrey-

      You are so very welcome here. As you can see from the greetings you've already gotten, TGS is a very friendly place and the best site online to make friends and find support, advice and resources. Please make yourself comfortable and feel free to join in on the various chats and forums. If you should need any help with getting around on the site, please let me or any of the other mods know and we'll be glad to help. A bit of warning though, you don't need to spend a lot of time getting familiar because soon, real soon, we are going to be moving lock, stock and wardrobe to our new site which will be not only different, but way cooler.

      And to Marsha: here's best wishes for a speedy and safe recovery. Congratulations, girl.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • Hi Audrey.
      Welcome sister.

    • December 10, 2010 12:29 AM GMT
    • Hi Audrey!! Nice to meet you, hon. Everyone on this site is pretty supportive, so don't think twice, dive in.

      Wishing I was in Arizona instead of ice cold Iowa,

      Zoey

    • December 10, 2010 12:13 AM GMT
    • My name is Audrey, and I'm a 24 MTF girl in Arizona. I'm new to the internet community thing, so I'm just looking to make friends and meet some interesting people :). I'm just starting my transition in earnest this year, hoping to be full-time by this time in 2011. Feel free to message me, I like to talk :).

    • December 5, 2010 4:43 PM GMT
    • I'm ~normally~ super shy anyways...well, the "boy" me is, I'm not ~lol~ what happened was that something scared the boy part back to the top really badly, but we're past that now, I hope ;-) ~crosses legs for good luck and grinz~

      Anyways, thank you so much ~beams~ that was the first time dressing for a camera, ever, and it was just a quicky because I couldn't hold it in anymore after all that shopping ;-) That sweater is a little too tight, but when I eyed it and bought it, i was intending to wear it open anyways, just forgot in my rush... but now I can slow down a little and get down to business... making my hips and thighs and breastforms... I remember now, doing this when I was a kid, only then i used to have to ~steal~ my clothes, usually from my mother, which i sometimes felt kinda gross about... making it harder... but Now, unlike then, I bought the right materials to make my shape curvy the way I want it... I hope =D

      We'll see by next weekend, when I can get some ~good~ pics of me =)

    • December 5, 2010 2:27 PM GMT
    • Hi V-

      It really is nice to see you again. I always wonder what has happened when girls post a few times and then just disappear. Are they super shy? Did something about TGS put them off? Where did they go? I've even followed up with some and gotten no reply. Hopefully they're well and happy and their journey us foilowing a good path.

      So....it is very good to see you again. I like the outfit, it's very cute and feminine and not over the top. Not that I have anything against over the top, I go there fairly often myself. Hope you're having a great weekend. Happy Holidays, girl.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • December 5, 2010 9:03 AM GMT
    • Hi V,great to have you aboard. I love the sound of that machine and if you can remember any of the major components I'll have a go at making one. I have a free afternoon and hope to have it done by dinner time lol. I came out to my therapist just a few weeks ago. I'm sure you will find plenty of friends and support here. I know I have. Take care love Lillith x

    • December 5, 2010 2:20 AM GMT
    • Hi again ~lol~

      Shortly after my first post, a buncha blech happened IRL, so i dissapeared before I even got started =P

      But now I'm back, and things are better than ever...

      Over a year ago, I first came out to my therapist (whom I was seeing for DID) about ~this~ stuff, and shortly after that, my mother, and a few close friends (majority online)... I only just this past week talked a bit with my brother about it... I'm 39 years old this year, and I've been hiding all this since I was 10... and I've never felt so free.

      Last week I "allowed myself" to go shopping at a few thrift stores, and put together a coupla outfits, the week before having done my eyes for the first time in my life (a pic of one of them should be visible in my profile shortly)... and now I have this one pic of me, fully dressed for the first time... except I didn't have time to do my face, so I cut that part out ~lol~



      but, before I try on anymore clothes and such, I'm determine to completely clean out my bedroom and make it more suitable for ~me~, along with space for my new clothes, etc...

      So hello again =) Hopefully I can start hanging around here a lot more this time ;-)

    • December 5, 2010 4:36 AM GMT
    • Hi Jakie. I''ve read your post a few times, but didn't realy feel a need to post other than to say hi.
      I'm prewtty much a strong willed person, who says what needs to be said. This othen gets me in trouble with the weak minded.
      Luckly I can pretty much speak my mind here, unlike on another site which wll remain nameless.
      Anyways, I just wanted to say. If you listen to all the negativity from closed minded souls, you'll never be free, and most importantly, you'll never accept yourself.
      This is the most important thing in all your life. It doesn't matter what others say. It doesan't matter if others accept you, for who you are. If you don't accept who you are you'll never be free.

    • December 5, 2010 4:01 AM GMT
    • ^ wise words, and thanks.

    • December 5, 2010 12:04 AM GMT
    • Jakkie,

      Only you yourself can decide what you are. Me personally I never fit any labels and when someone thinks they have me worked out and neatly labeled I go and change again.

      I'm a big bold, shy, introspective, smart , dumb, butch and femme woman and thats just on mondays. You should see the rest of the week. The thing is I decided to be this way. I could have worked really hard to fit into people's perceived ideas of who I am and what I'm about but that wouldnt be fair to me or the world at large.

      On the "wannabe" factor. Look up "trans". From Dictionary.com :

      trans- 
      1.
      a prefix occurring in loanwords from Latin ( transcend; transfix ); on this model, used with the meanings “across,” “beyond,” “through,” “changing thoroughly,” “transverse,” in combination with elements of any origin: transisthmian; trans-Siberian; transempirical; transvalue.

      If you switch between one and another you can use the prefix "trans" to pretty much anything. You just struck someones idea of what they believe trans to be.

      Personally, I dont think of myself as trans at all in the transsexual meaning that is. I made that voyage, the boat docked in January 2006. There was still some lessons to learn but for the most part that finished. Now my journey is with other parts of life. I believe I will always have a little trans in my life as I am Trans-life now. Traveling through my life, changing thoroughly with time and enjoying the ride.

      Remember the only opinion that truly matters is your own. You're the one that has to look at yourself every morning when you look in the mirror.





    • December 4, 2010 9:10 AM GMT
    • Seriously, I didn't expect this kind of overwhelming support especially after being told several times that I'm a "wannabe" and not a "real MTF".

      I seriously needed that, so thanks all.

      Marsha:

      Two-Spirited fits pretty well, although there tend to be two types of bigendered folks. Some strictly two-spirited, as in two seperate gendered aspects of the same self and those who are fluid. I'm of the latter. But hey, where I stand is if your trans your trans details aside.

      Love the scripture quote by the by.

    • December 3, 2010 2:17 AM GMT
    • Jackie, welcome to GS. I think you will find that your understanding of your "gender" is something that will change and become clearer as time goes on. Maybe not in days or weeks, but in years and decades. A wonderful gal here named Wendy loves to use the term "two spirited" and that sounds very much like you. But specific titles don't really mean a great deal here. Don't listen to anyone who says there is only one way to do it right, which usually means their way is right. We are all different and what is right for me is not necessarily right for you. There are lots of wonderful people here at GS and I hope you take the opportunity to communicate and develop new friendships with the others here.
      Best wishes,
      Marsha

    • December 3, 2010 1:29 AM GMT
    • Hi Jakie-

      If anybody on this forum, or any other, makes you feel unwelcome about who you are and how you feel yourself to be and especially about how you choose to self-designate, you let me know. We may have our little spats here and all, just like any family, but everyone is welcome. So...welcome.

      Seriously, TGS is the best place on the web to find help, support, resources, information and friendship. Especially the friendship part. You are very, very welcome here. There isn't much I can add to what the other girls have said, except to say that if you need any help regarding this forum or the site in general, please feel free to let me or any of the other mods know.

      BTW, nice weather...more or less...today, wasn't it?

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • December 3, 2010 12:49 AM GMT
    • ^ well being bigendered is a form of being trasns but all the same thank you for the kind welcome.

    • December 3, 2010 12:38 AM GMT
    • Hello Jakie and welcome to TGS.
      Whether you are transgender, bigender, or cisgender, or somewhere in between, you are equally welcome.
      I am sure you will meet others here who are in similar places on the gender spectrum.
      xx

    • December 4, 2010 6:40 PM GMT
    • There's also an "Add to Friends" button right under each of these forum posts. Don't get too familiar with the layout though because in just a few days from now, we'll be moving to our new site which is all different again.

      Anyway, welcome - hope you find what you want here.

      Hugs, Katie x

    • December 4, 2010 9:14 AM GMT
    • Hey, I've been here for like 5 seconds but welcome. The girls here seem nice so hey glad you're here.

    • December 3, 2010 4:53 PM GMT
    • Hello Amanda-

      Please forgive me for taking so long to say hi and welcome you to TGS. I could plead the stress and busyness of the Holidays, but really, I have no excuse for neglecting my moderatoress duties. Don't worry, though, you weren't the only one. Hmm, maybe I need a spanking...I'll add that to my Christmas list.<g>

      Seriously, dear, (btw, I love your name, it's so pretty) you are very welcome here. TGS is a great place to make friends and find help, resources and information about this journey we're on. Oh, and in case you haven't already figured it out, you can friend someone by clicking on their name, which will take you to their profile. Once you're there just scroll down a bit to the message box and right next to it you'll find a link to add them as a friend. If you have any problems, please let me or one of the other mods know and we will help you out.

      Once again, welcome and Happy Holidays.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • December 3, 2010 4:37 PM GMT
    • Hi Sophie-

      Please forgive me for taking so long to get around to making you welcome to TGS. This really is an excellent place to make friends and find information, help, and resources. There are even forums and resources for spouses, perhaps you might encourage your spouse to have a look or even become a member herself. There are many here who have spouses whose attitudes range from wholehearted acceptance and encouragement to complete rejection, so we all understand to one degree or another what you are going through.

      Please feel free to join in on any of the forums and chats, as I mentioned, we all know what it's like and while our individual stories may vary, we are all on the same journey to find ourselves. If you need any help getting around on the site, please let me or any of the other mods know, and we will be glad to help out. Once again, I hope you'll accept my apology for taking so long to welcome you here. My best to you and yours for the Holidays.

      Hugs...Joni Mari

    • December 3, 2010 1:58 PM GMT
    • Hi Alex-

      Please accept my apology for my tardy response to your post. Welcome to TGS and best of luck on your SRS.

      Hugs...Joni Mari
