It's been a minute since I have written here about the differences I learned almost immediately in gender conflict. Or, the stamina it takes to be a transgender woman survivor.
Very quickly I found men would either head to the other side of the room, ignore me or lay down the occasional cheap shot. Women however were much different of course.
I learned many times a smiling feminine face was concealing a sharp knife behind her back. So I ended up being wounded more than once.
It will be interesting to see how many of the women tomorrow night (23) migrate at all towards me or away from me.
I have been to "girls only" events before and the big difference was family talk versus sports and job talk. Which I can still do equally as well.
The only thing I don't have is grandkid pics...a needed accessory.
The only woman I can see who would remotely find me offensive is a religious right winger and I don't want to be part of that! (She doesn't.)
So, my junior knife set is sharpened and I can't wait to have a good time.
