    I apologize if it seems like I'm arguing semantics, but there's much more involved than "lopping off" man parts. ;)
    But yeah, not to toot my own horn, but the vast majority of trans people I've met seem to be gifted in creativity of some sort. Must be those extra large androgen receptors. :lol:

    No apologies nessisary! I can imagine that there's much more to it, I just like the word "lop". But to be correct she said she couldn't wait to "get rid of this junk".

    I wasn't even talking about her musical abilities :lol: (even though they were strongly present), but in attitude and personality compared to the rest of the bunch.

    I'm 29 this Thursday and the rest of the group is around 22 so when I broke the ice about, for example, having kids or being on my second marriage, she was the first to break an awkward silence with compliments and valid discussion.

    I get you. I try to make jokes about it myself. I decided to rename all the pairs of scissors in my house "wiener whackers" as a way to help me laugh and get over the fear of such procedures. It's the little things that seem to help the most. :lol:

    And I'm glad that you found a great bass player and a good person. Not all of us are nice people, but thankfully she is. :)

    Some great replies from Doritos. Not trying to be all nice and accommodating to every idiot spewing their garbage all over the web so they won't loose a "customer". I honestly was never a big fan of Doritos but due to supporting a good cause and sticking up for it I'll be buying a lot more of their products as a capitalist consumer in a capitalist world, like the "good" pastor suggested.

    The replies aren't from Doritos but from a fake account pretending to be official.

    Damn I got hoaxed. Maybe because I wish a company would have the balls to reply to people like these appropriately.

    So I'm presenting as female fully in public for the first time on Friday. I'm equal parts nervous and excited. <3

    This is from one of my friends.
    I'll leave it here.
    https://www.gofundme.com/tyxw7s

    This is what he posted publically some times ago, it was still 2014.
    I can say I understand him, but I'll be an hypocrite, I can just see his sadness and am not able to get it fully.
    I hope you guys can be of support in any way possible, even speaking with him and eventually share your experience.
    You can contact him if you want at http://twitter.com/wesfun if you want.
    I took the decision to talk about him here by my free will, then told him and he was very happy I shared, that's why I've edited the post with more info.
    Thanks peeps :)

    One of the best ways to show support for your friend is to address them by their preferred pronouns. Nothing will drive a transperson more batsh*t insane than when people they regard as friends simply refuse to make such a simple change in their vocabulary out of respect for them.

    Since your friend posted that they are a transwoman, I'd venture a guess that they'd want to be known by she/her. Not picking on you or anything, just speaking up since it's a big deal to trans people to be known by the right pronouns.

    About pronouns, I have been reading about the "they epicene" and how it is more suitable for some situations(not this case where she is a transwoman.

    In other languages it may be hard to address this issue.

    Hey y'all, just checking in and stuff ^.&#8364;. Came out as trans this past year, so just wanted to see how many other trans folks are on the forum.
