Continuing a post I wrote yesterday here in Cyrsti's Condo which I compared my MtF gender transition to climbing into the "girl's sandbox" . I break it down further in my book "Stiletto's on Thin Ice" but for simplicity (like my mind), here are a couple of thoughts.
For the record, I have nursed my biggest scratches over the years, from two groups-"A-list" genetic and TS women. I leaned quickly from both, who sought me out for my comeuppance (as they say in my part of the world.) My first lesson came years ago at one of the transvestite "mixers" I used to attend. I was always fascinated by the diversity of the group and loved to go out with a certain few after the "meeting" and party. The problem was, this group made up most attractive cross dressers in the room.(Not the most feminine though.) They knew it and were very similar to the socialite/cheerleader types I encountered in high school. To "tag along" was OK by them, as long as we all knew I didn't really belong. Lesson learned. Maybe I didn't fit it with those girls in the sandbox, but there were others I was finding who indeed I did!
As most cat scratches do, I heeled and found more acceptance in the box than I ever thought possible.As we have discussed here in the "Condo" most genetic women are curious why you would even want to play in the sandbox at all and move on. My problems occurred when I wanted to use the "litter box" and I got scratched big time. Through it all, I learned to watch my back because there could be a woman coming after me with a patented "passive aggressive" feminine attack.
Finally, I learned the worst attacks in the box came from those I couldn't even see, transsexual and transgender women who sit safe behind their computers and blast away. I used to get mad (still do) and hurt (still do) but for the most part understand I put myself out here and with it comes abuse.
So now, I happy with my little spot of sand in the girl's sandbox and I have playmates too. Plus on the positive side, I have interacted with sooooo many good hearted peeps like all of you.
Thanks for playing in our sandbox!!!
