    Just some thoughts I've been having about the whole transition process after talking with quite a few girls.



    all TSs start off as a crossdresser at some stage in their life. typically its those CDs who have started dressing before puberty that become transexuals and undergo the final SRS. (sexual rassignment surgery). A vast majority of those that dress later on in life (read after puberty) do so as a way to escape their stressful life and take on the role of someone whom is quite their "normal" opposite. These late dressers usually don't take things beyond the dressing stage, and usually don't have homosexual tendencies, as dressing is merely a way for them to escape their reality and express their more femine side.

    Its those people who started dressing before they hit puberty that are my interest, because deep down they see themselves literally as a woman trapped in a man's body. when puberty hits them, it is typically VERY traumatic for them, as their body is changing to being the opposite of how they truly see themselves. Also, the high stress of peer pressure in their highschool years, and lack of acceptance amongst their peers really makes it hard for them to try and be who they truly think they are, which is why most TSs around my age (18-25) don't live full time as a woman yet- they have just gotten out of high school, or are in college, and they need to keep their male appearance for work or school.

    That being said, they still see themselves as a woman on the inside, and try to be that woman as often as possible. One TS girl (Jaimy) I met on campus is doing just that. She only retains her male appearance for school (and even then the appearance is very androgenous), and has started to undergo some of the transition treatments that she can afford and get away with while keep her male form for school. She's starting electroylsis come spring break, as the process requires you to let your hair grow out, and so she thinks that she could get away with being a bearded man for a few weeks while she's in school rather than being a bearded lady after she's transitioned. Jaimy's planning on undergoing HRT (Hormone replacement THerapy) after she graduates in 2005 mainly because of financial difficulties, but is also concerned about losing her functionality (I'll get to this later). She's also wanting to eventually have breast and hip augmentation, along with having her adam's apple (I never noticed it :shrug: ) shaved, but doesn't want to undergo SRS.

    It seems to me that most TSs don't want to undergo SRS because of 3 main reasons:

    1) Very expensive
    2) 50/50 chance of being numb in the groin area after surgery
    3) very long and painful recovery

    Jaimy doesn't wish to undergo SRS (and is delaying HRT) because she (like most other men) enjoys sex and the thought of losing that sexual functionality is like a nightmare to her. I'm finding that a lot of the escorts are like minded in their thoughts on SRS and HRT, though the 3 escorts I've associated with have said that all of the listed HRT side effects are mild to non-existant if you set yourself up on a low-dosage beginning and increase the amount of hormones you are taking over a period of 1 to 3 years.


    It's pretty amazing; the things you learn while just talking to someone in a casual setting.

    I suppose there will be. I'm heading off to see Jaimy perform at a drag show tonight, so I'll probably be coming back with LOTS of stories and whatnot :)

    those were going to be my exact responses :p


    though you can also find yahoo groups for Transexuals in your area, but it's hard to filter through all the porn lists.

    I found 3 groups for my area by searching through the yahoo profiles.

    honestly the best place I've found to go are gay bars/clubs (granted I never go to one unless I'm meeting a girl there as I seem to be a "hot" item for young gay guys :wtc: ).

    though one of the members in LA here told me of a T-bar he frequents which is where bob from Bobstgirls.com meets his models for photo shoots.

    This is NOT the place for your transexual blog. Go to reddit for that from now on, thank you!
