Today she asked if there were any transgender perspectives which may have changed with me recently, or long term.
Over time though, I have experienced many changes. Most I have written about here in
Cyrsti's Condo before.
The biggest one is how I perceive what I wear and the importance I attach to it. When I look back on all my earliest blog posts, often I am amazed how attached I was to every small detail of what I was wearing. Indeed, every trip out in the trans feminine world I made, success or failure was determined about how well I "passed".
Now I realize, over the years, it took awhile to settle into my own style. Then I took extra time to mesh it with the real world of cis women. Learning (often the hard way) confidence not passing did equal privilege.
So, I did learn and change. I guess you can teach an old girl new tricks!
