Drag Race

Had a friend who works at a store I shop at ask me if I watch RuPaul's Drag Race. She assumed that because I'm trans that of course I do.

I told her no. That I hated the show, that I would turn it to the worst Z-movie in the world before I'd watch it. She laughed and asked me why.

Another Letter to My Mother

This is a follow up letter that I sent to my mother. I know that many people have read my "A Letter to my Mother" and expressed happiness about her reaction, and how I said what I said to her.

This is me cutting her off.

I was assaulted by a transphobe while living with someone as a roommate. My mother thought it was more important to attend a dinner with her sister instead of coming to the hospital to see me after this incident. Then it came out that my mother and her new husband had been running down me to my daughter the entire time she was living with them, which was a period of six months (and pure torture for her).

Update on my situation

Well, the hormones I'm still on are apparently doing better. Instead of one patch every three and a half days, I'm wearing two patches for a week. That plus the Spiro actually has my breasts growing now. I mean, I wake up in the night finding myself rubbing them going "these aren't a bra or padding, they are really attached to me" and then drifting back into a contented sleep.

I've also noticed that my skin is getting softer and my limbs are getting thinner. My bicep was well developed and I had thick forearms, now they are noticeably thinner.

Okay, on the front page of the site, on the right hand side, normally I have a control panel that says "Joy Phillip" and has links to my messages, places like my account settings, my stories and more. I check there daily to see if there is anything new.

Yesterday it disappeared.

I came back today and it's still not there. It is present if I go to a story, a blog post or some other page, but not on the front page.

Gina's New Beginning (A Sissy Story)

Maid to be a Man? Chapter 5

New Stories coming

Author: 

Well, I've been able to write more. I have more chapters of the stories I have been writing coming.

Sgt. Greg of the Sissy Series has a new chapter coming. I got about 35% of it written and just have to keep going.
More Catwoman. I have about 15% of the next Catwoman story coming.
I have more Maid to be a Man with Maid Mia done, it just has to be edited now. It's 100% of Chapter 5, about 15% of Chapter 6.

Other than that, working and doing what I need to.

More than a little pissed

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

Well, I'm upset, and it's upset occasionally when I think about it.

Why? Look at my signature. I've been on HRT for 22 months. You would think that I'd have tits, hips, SubCu fat, thinner face hair, and so on, right?

I don't. I still look like a boy in drag, and when my beard pokes through my makeup, I want to die of embarrassment.

I've been on 1.25 mg of Premarin the whole time. When asked to increase the dose, I was told "this is a marathon, not a sprint."

I had hoped that time would make the damned changes I want, and it hasn't.

My Mother's Response

This is my mothers response to the letter I sent her.

Well! Reading your last e-mail was a shock to say the least. Here is my answer---I don’t care if you are a man or woman or stick or rock or barbarian!!! I just care if you are a good person!!! That’s the bottom line–the kind of living human being you are. Love, Mom

I started crying. I don't normally cry, but I did.

A letter to my mother

Dear Mom,

This is probably the hardest letter I have ever written.

First, I love you very much. I love you and I honor you for everything you have done for the family I have now and the family I had when I was young. I’m so very sorry that I made all that so much harder for you. I hope recent years have made up for all the hard times I put you through during my teen years.

Name change

Author: 

Well, as of Wednesday Morning at about 10AM CT, my name is officially Joy Anne Phillip.

The judge signed the order, and now the only things I have left to do in this journey is the SRS (which I may not get) and to tell my mother that she has four daughters now. All my boy clothes (with the exception of about 6 shirts totsl) are gone. Not having to keep two warddrobes certainly helped.

Need to get my voice higher, but I can't seem to find good voice coach stuff on the Web.

Well, on Oct 12, I came into my workplace in full femme. Essentially, I've started my real life test, even though I have no intention of getting SRS.

This actual process was this:

I told my immediate supervisor about my TG status on teh first day. I told him that he could share it with those who HAD to know, HR, his manger, the team lead that I was with, but that if he didn't pass it around it would be good.
At the same time, I started wearing more makeup, wearing girl's jeans and sometimes tops, sports bras which couldn't hide the budding breasts.

Eneimes are everywhere. She can't swing a cat without hitting one or more, and that's a good thing since they will have been well and truly hit at that point.

Long time no update....

Well, I haven't updated this in so long, you must all be thinking I died or something....

I haven't died, in fact things are going a lot better than they have had in a long time. A Long time....

First, the job: I'm in the routine now. And I'm actually enjoying it. There is a lot of crap that goes along with it, like stupid users, but that's actually minor. I've been able to get 99.9% of the people I interact with to leave a call with me happier and more satisfied than when they came on. I actually TRY to fix their problem. Which is the actual point of the Level 1 Helpdesk.

Trigger Warning: I thought you all should know about this.

Okay, this is something that I don't want to post, but I am because awareness needs to be raised.

There is this video: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ec0_1303444048
There's a LOT of comments on it too.

More news from me

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

First: The job is legitimately delayed. There's some sort of problem and they can't get the scheduling right. I was told by the guy who recruited me that my TS status has no bearing on anything, and that as long as I am the best rep for Dell I can be, things are fine.

Second: My Lady, MaryMeet is putting up a new story for Lilith's Retcon Uni. Go take a look if you want to.

Third: If anyone wants a DreamWidth invite code, I have a bunch. Send me a PM with your email in it and I'll get one out to you quick.

News and a problem?

Author: 

Well, I have good news.

I have a job.

It's only 33 weeks, working as a temp for Dell, but it's better than nothing.

Now the problem....

I asked the recruiter about what I needed to do as a transitioning woman, and the NEXT DAY they called me and said that the job wasn't going to be starting on the start date.

Sandy Claws

Catwoman acts as protector of children and finds some disturbing realities. Things only get worse the deeper into the investigation she goes. A simple thief, not any more. A Mercenary? Maybe if someone were paying her bill. Story threads start weaving together.

Some decisions made mean that irreparable harm may happen to humanity, but will that stop Catwoman from actually doing it? And how much trouble will she be in with Jade?

Catching Up

Catching Up

 

Just a word of note. Lilith and I co-wrote this one. She took care of the parts involving Jon, I took care of Catwoman. The ideas didn't gel just right, but I couldn't pull all the Jon stuff and still have some of the story make sense. So, consider this a look into one character who can have an impact later. There is more, but it is the section I pulled out. At some future time I or Lilith will finish it out and then you can see Batgirl. Until then, enjoy.

And yes, I'm going to continue with the "Cat" puns for titles.

Well, I'm going on a story that Lilith and I were co-writing. But she can't think of anything to do to it, so I'm finishing the story. It's coming, Batgirl/Catwoman retcon. But it going to take me a bit to finish it up. It's at 20 pages and growing now.

Don't despair, things will come.

Don't know if I'm going to be finishing the other series though. I have to just to wrap them up, but other than just tying up the hanging threads, I don't think I'll do much more. My Ninja Muse just isn't talking to me much anymore.
