This is probably the best way I could answer you, Ari, it isn't something I know how to qualify, I've known for as far back as I can remember, so it's hard for me to explain. I'll give it some more thought and get back to you on that though.

No need to explain. You should rephrase "outted" cuz that usually refers to something derogatory. In this day and age nothing surprises anyone anymore. At least one of my old co-workers is definitely a gay another most likely. They're actually quite normal and very hard working. Before I may have been uncomfortable due to lack of maturity, but now it's just the way the world is. I'll tell you what confuses me more is why there are flotation devices under plane seats instead of parachutes?

So if that's who you are good then it is what it is. I don't think anybody is going to treat you any differently here.

btw: What dj program do you use. Ableton live and Serato...
Duly noted, I'll change the wording

That's a great question about the airplane seats, given that hitting the water from that altitude is like hitting a wall of concrete anyways.

I use Serato for my gigs and I bounce between VDJ and Serato for mixing new tunes now, I changed it up recently.

I was going to wait until tomorrow but hell I have some questions I'll post right away.

Where you particularly feminine as a man? I ask since in your picture, albeit a small one, It's hard to imagine that you where a male.

Since men or women are built different all the way in to the skeleton, doesn't that make it hard for a successful convertion to look 100% female. I mean most men have big hands, feet etc. Compared to women. IRL could one tell such features on you or were you built petite as a man from the start?

You ever miss jerking off the man way, or having sex the old way? wich way do you find is better, physically. Do you fully function as a woman down there now?

have you tried having sex with a dude as a woman?
if yes, did he know lol...sorry had to ask :P
I was going to ask if you're into men or women, but I saw in Ari's post that it's women so that spawned the question above instead.


Pretty interesting stuff, never met or talked to a transsexual IRL or on the net before ...atleast that I know.

Maybe these questions are a bit to personal for an internet forum, but you said you where hard to offend so I just fired away.

I was definitely more feminine than masculine, but that was by choice.

I wouldn't say I have overly large hands or anything, certainly above the average female's size but also well within the 'acceptable norm' for a female. My feet very well would be a giveaway though of my birth self as my feet are fairly large comparatively speaking.

I can't really say I miss the old way of either, neither one really brought me any pleasure to begin with. The downside to this whole thing though is loss of sensation after the fact, so to say I overly enjoy it now would be a fallacy as well.

Yeah, it's like I said, I'm pretty open about things as long as it's approached in a respectful way Hope that answered your questions as well as you had hoped.

i'll ask a question i have my own opinion about; maybe it will open up an interesting dialog.



Sex vs Gender: to me there is a vast difference in these words, however close they may be in the english language.

sex is completely physical based (XX, XY, and all the various combinations).

as far as i'm concerned, there are 8 billion people on the planet therefore there are 8 billion genders.

your thoughts?

Carley Simon, thanks for writing that song about me!

My thoughts are that I agree completely with that statement. Sex is rather rigid as a term whereas gender is probably the most subjective word out there in the world today.

I'm not really sure how to answer that.
I know I'm a woman, and I like being a woman. I could never fathom the idea of getting SRS or anything like that. But other than keeping up with my appearance to an extent I wouldn't describe myself as being feminine. I like video games, sports, outdoors, and stuff like that.
But then again feminity is a relative term. There are certain parts about my personality that are feminine, I guess.

thank you... people get all huffy when i tell them this and they cannot get off of their high horse.

i don't care what you identify as, you are [Cowgirl, in this example] and that's all that matters.

There's a fair amount of variation in between the two generally recognized sexes, as well. Intersex/ambiguously gendered people are born all the time... even chromosomally speaking there are people who do not fit within XX and XY. Doctors and parents in the past have tried to force these children into one sex (and often gender role) or the other and it can have disastrous consequences.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

That's why I chose to word it as 'rather rigid.' Comparatively speaking, that's exactly what it is. I certainly wasn't trying to disregard people with sexual differences at birth either
