    • Hi Anessa

      Welcome.

      You do sound in a bit of a way. I guess you haven't told your fiance?

      If you read around the experiences on TrannyWeb you'll find that most girls find that hiding it from loved ones is a recipe for disaster, even if it takes a long time. As you say
      I know the answers to these questions but refuse to face the issue.
      I think this post is your way of starting to face the issues.

      Whatever you do, take your time to think about it and how you are going to do it. Down at the bottom of this board is a forum for advice from Grace Noble. She may be able to help you.

      Best wishes

      Sarah

    • hi sam
      been a while since we talked last it freaks my mom and dad out to but after a while if they really love you they will accept you for who you really are. My wife and kids are what really worried me most but my wife has been so supportive and my kids love haveing two moms.It has really brought my family closer because i dont have to hide my feelings i can cry during movies and express who i really am im free to be my self and explore my woman hood like i have allways wanted to. You will eventally come out because its something you cant hide all your life i found that out the hard way by trying to be something im not a man. If you are truely transexual you cant keep it in you for ever it will tear you up inside and eat at you. The more you pretend to be male instead of female the more problems you will encounter in life. It feels so good to be free and i hope one day you will be able to be free.

                                 love kelly

    • well, despite fighting hard for financial recovery after various issues some of you are aware of, someone stole my post, and took a bank card.
      my account was emptied via swipe card transactions.

      i am currently still trying to get SOMETHING back from the bank, as i never recieved the card, but hey, they have their own rules dont they.(((brick wall)))

      just as i turned a positive corner, and was going to try to start dressing again more regularly, i find i have nothing to do that with after working like a lunatic during november and december.

      but hey, i still got a job....

      told you the posts would continue...

    • Hi Heather,

      Your website looks really good and it's so warming to share your good news. If you made it to Wayout, I'm sure you can make it over to Earl's Court. I used to go to Wayout and Stormes fairly regularly until I found the Philbeach.

    • If anyone is interested in my life and to see pictures of myself then feel free to visit my website( bearing in mind that it is my first attempt) at http://heather27essex.tripod.com ( i don't know how to put a direct link, sorry)
      The only things that have changed since doing my website are that both my parents have accepted Heather and let me be her when ever i want and have full roam of the house. And my new years resolution was to be more open about myself, and my first big step was to tell my sister Andrea on new years day, which she was absolutely fine with. The next step is my other sister who i think will be more of a challenge. I am definately lucky in the fact that my family will accept me for what i am, and really hope that everyone here on the board can in someway have some of my luck passed on to them. It has been 15yrs since anyone new about Heather and this is the happiest i think i have ever been.

      Thank you for listening

      Hugs to all

    • No thanks, Julie. I don't want to be a father or a mother! Kids drive me insane!  

      I really hope your 2003 brings you more of what you want in life.

      seriously though, with the prolifery of your postings, i'm sure you are dramatically understating yourself.

      merry xmas.

    • December 21, 2002 4:59 PM GMT
    • Hmm... maybe I should force myself to start writing something. It doesn't come easily for me, though. I labor over the least little things. I take too much time even with e-mails and message board posts.  

    • December 11, 2002 1:25 AM GMT

    • In Final Fantasy 7, the male lead had to dress as a woman for a little while, which is why I bought the game.

    • I want to see a tranny character star in a video game (PC, PS2, XBox, etc.). I wouldn't want the character to be some sex-crazed lunatic (as many websites portray us), though. I just want to see a feminine male in some sort of adventure.

    • December 11, 2002 1:52 PM GMT
    • I have done both the online chat and some online games en femme. I have Danielle as one of my "personalities" on some IRC chat rooms and have some friends that I can just chat with. I played Everquest and Dark Age of Camelot for a while with both male and female characters. I found it funny the way guys would come to the rescue or just give you stuff simply because you were female. Presently, I gave up the online games and trying to devote more of my time to my real life. Maybe I'll go back to playing when the next greatest game comes out.

    • Yes, we come here to AVOID annoyance factors.

      Katie, I second everything Valdrak said. I hope your new membership options will provide enough revenue to ease the financial burden of running Trannyweb.

    • December 17, 2002 10:18 AM GMT
    • Thanks Val.

      Perhaps the fact that we don't have popup ads is also because our software doesn't have that feature.  I really don't like them anyway.

      The new incarnation of Trannyweb will be able to do popups but I think we'll leave them switched off as the amount of revenue they generate would not be enough to offset the 'annoyance factor'.

      Hugs,

      Katie

    • Hi Lizzie

      The value of being over 60 is that the dieting can always start next Monday.

      The price of being over 50 is to be on a perpetual diet, but it never works. ;D

    • Sarah, I'm glad you liked it.

      As for 'life's own clock'. You are right, it's through that passage of time that we get to where we are to day. I guess my thought at the time, was of the regret of the waisted years in denial.

      As for the picture (there's a larger one on the web page). I sent Stevie a note confessing that it was really a posed photo. I had to many shots with very bad red-eye, so thought I would 'do something' rather than look direct at the camera. And with that rather goth girl top on, lighting candles seemed ideal. Not so much as a candlelit dinner, more of a nice evening in, with a bottle of wine.
      We are both of diets these days, the price of being over 30 I guess.

    • November 9, 2002 9:09 AM GMT
    • P.S.

      That is a lovely picture of you and you haven't answered Stevie's question about the romantic dinner. Do tell.

    • Hi Lizzie

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I too was moved by your poem but I do take issue (it must be my day for taking issue) with one of your sentiments.

      But none so cruel as life's own clock

      Cruel in one way but kind in another and better way. It's "life's own clock" that brings us self-knowledge, wisdom, and contentment; that brought you to where you are today, which seems to be better than where you were yesterday.

      Although I could do without some of life's baggage, mostly under the eyes and around the tummy. ;D ;D ;D

      Hugs

    • Thank you for letting us share your thoughts in such a moving way.

    • Well I've poured my heart out these last couple of weeks as part of my on-going re-birth.

      So to tell you a little more, I've tried my hand at poetry. I was a maths and science girl as a child, so this is something new to me.

      --------------------------------------------------------
                   
                 Elizabeth

      Loving infant, so warm so kind
      Is teased by others cruel of mind
      Although once pure, in innocence
      She learns the chilling difference
      A prayer now each and every night
      Tomorrow morn, to be put right.

      Now an act, a scene she'll play
      A suffocating masque each day
      Till in secret, while none about
      Her hidden self, can step on out
      And in the mirror she can see
      The girl she knows she's meant to be

      The teenage girl, knows she's been cursed
      As nature's poison does its worst
      The pain now she resolves to hide
      To bury deep, so deep inside
      And though she swears she will not cry
      The hurt will simply multiply

      Now an act, a scene she'll play
      A suffocating masque each day
      Till in secret, while none about
      Her hidden self, can step on out
      And in the mirror almost sees
      The girl she knows she ought to be

      The adult cover's now a cage
      Feminine ink, still on each page
      Seeking answers, of what to do
      She finds others, suffering too
      For some the pain becomes too great
      We mourn the souls the hurt will take

      No more acts, or scenes to play
      As new friends help to show the way
      A truth denied, an inner war
      But she won’t fight it any more
      The dam has burst, the tears shall flow
      The doors unlocked, she's free to grow

      Resolved now to a future bright
      She picks a path for her that's right
      Minds may hate and bigot's mock
      But none so cruel as life's own clock
      In honesty she takes her chance
      To finally, .... discard the masque.

      --------------------------------------------------------

      Luv to you all, Elizabeth Emily Tyler.

    • Hi Jenny, Welcome

      I'm new here myself too.

      Stuffed a sheet up your top....

      I remember stuffing all manner of things up my jumper so to speak, including one of my soft toys. I did start young, had my first bra at 5 or 6?, Mum found it my room after about a week, didn't fit too well.
      I also remember those Airwick ball shaped air freshners, that could be split in half.. to give two semi spherical objects (my younger sister caught me at that one though!)

      Of course I migrated to socks, but later cotton wool.
      As of a few weeks ago I bought some breast forms from Doreens Fashions in London (links to this and many other shopping facilities at wayout-publishing.com & trans.sister.org) Mine cost about 130 pounds sterling, and I simply love them.

      As for shoes, well I had some already, but recently bought some nice boots from Evans.
      As Evans specialise in larger ladies (I'm assuming you have Evans in Ireland too), their shoes tend go up to larger sizes also. I'm a 9, but they have many styles in 10's. But these were bought from their web site.

      Check out the sites, I'm sure many of the UK companies will send stuff to you.

      I still now trying to pluck up the courage to getting my ears pierced.... I'm 36, so I think I'm toying with an excuse like, well I had to do it before I was 40 - or you'd have said I was having a mid-life crisis. Presently, I'm only 'out' as far as my wife goes.

      Luv Liz.

      Where the heck have you been?
      Why are you a guest, T A R T.
      Please give me a scream, darling.
      Waiting to hear from you.

      i admire your continuing determination.

    • Phyliss,

      1) Halloween is coming up in a few weeks, so maybe you can use that as an excuse to get photographed in your "costume." It's just a thought, and it might get you around the attitudes of some photographers. Later, when you have time, you can search for one who doesn't mind doing business with trannies.

      2) I do my own manicures and pedicures. For me, that's a big part of the fun of being a woman. Because of my job, I can't keep my manicures for long (weekends and holidays, mainly), but I keep my pedicure 24/7/365/life. It would be great to be able to keep my manicure all the time, too, but I'm stll planning for that day.

      3) Most of my shoes are sandals, and most of those have heels of at least 3" (below that, they are usually just casual flat sandals). To me, most pumps aren't very comfortable, and they hide all of work I do on my pedicure. Why wear nail polish if you can't show it off?

    • October 6, 2002 9:17 AM BST
    • Hi Phyliss

      Have you thought of trying one of the dressing services? Quite often they will have associations with professional photographers. In fact I'm thinking of indulging myself with one this winter.

      There are plenty listed on the 'net. Of course I can't actually find one but you might start here

    • I am lucky to have a wife who is so supportave of me and comeing out to her has deffinatly made our marriage and frienship stronger but in a way she allways knew i was different than other males. If you are really transexual even tho you try to hide it they are still signs to who you really are as for me they were really a lot of signs that i was really female i like to cook redecorate the house i have allways rather shop for female cloths and shoes the way my body is shaped im a 145 pounds 5'5" and very curvey i have an older sister who is 34 and im 31 and when were together we could pass for twins.My wife said the first thing that attracted her was how feminine my body really was and how prissy i acted. So in reality me beiging a female instead of a male is what drew my wife to me to begin with she just never told me until i came out to her she said she didnt want to hurt my male ego what male ego ive never had one.

                                     love kelly

    • September 27, 2002 3:33 PM BST
    • :)I think it is great that a woman would acept her husband as her wife as well andhope she still feel the same way after hormone therapy & surgery, but the way you decribe you realaionship Kelly I think she will. I wish I could come right out and say I was a TS, but I'm just not shure. I took the online test, and it said that I'm both male & Female :( what is up with this. ??? Hopefuly grace can help me out some more. Rikki I wish you reationship with your wife was like Kellys, but some woman just can't aceppt another woman in the house besides the selves especialy a TG male, maybe you will find the right guy, or girl for you some day that is what I'm hoping for, the right girl too come along, and she must be very suportive of me real self and Samantha (who I wish could become real :'(.)
      Talk to you girls soon:

    • September 27, 2002 12:41 AM BST
    • I envy the relationship you have Kelly - I though when I came out to my wife that the same might happen - but it was not to be - not in front of the children - or the neighbours - or really infront or her eventually - so back in the closet I went and the secrecy and deciet in this area leads infects the relationship as a whole.  I am not surprised that you have only really discovered your relationship since you came out.

      I hope you are able to work out a way to develop your feinine side so that you are both able to cope with it - For me the end result is that I have been able to live almost entirely as a women - Messed up my income stream a bit - but I'm working on that - at least now I am happy in myself.

    • hi girls
      My name is kelly woodley i live in north carolina im married and have three wonderful children and the greatest wife in the world. I have known since a very early age about 5 or my earliest memories that i should have been female i tried to come out at an early age but like so many of us i was told that little boys dont do girly things. So i tried to express my feminity behind closed doors and in secerete. I done so many things trying to hide who i really am I grew a beard and mustache to make my face look more male I put on a few extra pounds they were so hard to take off. But i found out no matter what you look like on the out side or appear to look like my mind was still female and telling every cell in my body that it was female. The greatest day in my life besides getting married and haveing my kids was the day i came out to my wife and she accepeted me for who i really am It has made our relationship better we are closer than we ever have been before. we share share cloths makeup shaveing cream every thing even pms. We are best friends and she said i was the sister she never had. My wife and I have been together since high school and never really got to know each other until the last year because i was never truthful to her or my self it feels so good to be free. It only took 25 years for me. Thanks to this web sight i have learned so much about what i have been going thru for the last 25 years i thought i was alone in the world but found out i have many sisters and they are going thru the same thing as I am. God bless everyone of you and i love you all.
                                    love kelly

    • Thanks for the thought Stevie.

      I'm retiring from the tranny internet biz.

      You can still mail me if you want, but I won't be surfing or posting anymore.
      I'm just so tired of repeating myself, and dealing with people that I would never normally talk to.

      Thank you to the all the girls I have been posting with, Rikki, Stevie, Sarah and of course the fantastic Katie.
      Keep up the good work and please don't re-animate what I kill!
      Maybe oneday I'll be back, maybe not.....

      Do good things,

      Irene ( Just a girl)

    • Hiya Girls,

      Just thought I'd post a link to my main claim to fame:

      http://

      It has a little piece about my Marie Claire article and photo. That's right a national mag wanted to know all about me. Must have been a slow news day!
