Re: Yeah I'm your newest friend love it!

That's quite a welcoming committee! Befriendification? (Firefox tells me that's not a real word...) As far as escape goes... that depends on how you do here. As long as you can display intelligence, reasoning, and proper spelling and grammar (that is sooo the rage around here) you should be fine! Welcome to AS!
* If you are not to my liking, I always keep a spare escape pod just in case*

Since you started this, let's here a bit about yourself.

Re: Yeah I'm your newest friend love it!

Well, unfortunately I am stuck living in the Southern US. I'm a pre-op transgender slowly planning my daring escape from 'Hicksville,USA', but to my chagrin there is the little matter of being unemployed. I am also a an avid gamer, mainly roleplaying and fighting games, but I have some modest skills at shooting games. I do believe that i can for the most part meet the grammar and spelling trend here.

Also if anyone wants no hugging action then run very fast. I like hugging people, animals, some trees, and the mail person whenever they actually stop in to talk(very rare).

Re: Yeah I'm your newest friend love it!

Hugs? What's a hug?

Fighting games huh? Which do you play (or prefer): Soul Caliber, Tekken, Virtua Fighter, Smash Bros., etc.?)

Just to warn you, edit your post quickly (before the mob takes you away to burn you at the stake...)

You're okay in my book! When you do "escape", what part of the world will you escape to?

Re: Yeah I'm your newest friend love it!

I've spent a lot of the last few months writing formal letters, emails, applications, proposals, etc so it became a habit again I suppose.

(It's worked though - I got into law school and got a vacation placement with the firm I want to work for. Yay me!)

Pre-Op as in you're currently a woman, or you will become a woman, it's quite confusing because of your gender icon. Other than that ~WELCOME~

Like I said it confuses me, maybe "he" believes "he's" a "she" and the surgery just hasn't occurred yet.

Re: Yeah I'm your newest friend love it!

oh gosh guys. ok, what is transgender? or transexual?

transgender is you feel the opposite gender than you are physically.

transexual is you have changed your physical characterists to correlate to your internal gender.

she's pre-op. that's preoperational. postop is post operational. transexual is post op.

some trans females only have breast implants, while others go all the way and get vaginoplasty. some transmales have their female breasts removed and might go as far as to have penis reconstruction.

ok, so our new friend is pre-op transfemale. she might or might not be taking hormones or have breast implants.

no no no. it's not whether they believe or not. it's something they know. read up on the hormone studies and the correlation to those of the gender they feel they are and the sex that's observable.


it's not a mental disorder like they thought homosexuality was.

sex, gender, and all that aren't just black and white.

you've got gays, bis, polys, asexuals, pansexuals, transexuals, transgender, transbifem, translesfem, butch, twink, bear, transbimale, transfemmales, men who turn into women and like women, men who turn into women and date men.


it's all really interesting.

Gender ambiguities aside (not your orientation, I mean the way you stated it), welcome to AS!

*attack huggles* A good offense is the best defense, right?

A good example of this is Ivan E. Coyote.
I wrote my thread about her the way I did because of her gender orientation.
If you have ever read her books, you know that she is a female, but she's always had "A whole lot of boy in her". She dresses like a man, and even "packs", but she is actually a woman. She never fit into a specific gender group.

Re: Yeah I'm your newest friend love it!

Wow so many nice greetings! i'll clarify my gender status just to keep the confusion to a minimal. Genetically, I am male so I have penis and testes still, but mentally I have always felt and acted like a woman. So I am a male to female trans. My biggest two road blocks are money and family. Living in a Southern Christian home and being a transgender is so very much like Hell! I its bad enough that they don't like anything that I want to do social or career wise, but they have made it very clear that they want no part of anyone who is homosexual or in their minds worse trans-anything.

Also, I play just about any fighting game i can get my paws on. I'm pretty partial to SNK titles such as the King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, and Art of Fighting. I used to play Street Fighter a long time ago, but now I am stuck on Street Fight III 3rd Strike getting murdered by anyone who can parry.
