    I wish I could follow this thread and post here in a more regular fashion.

    Anyway, hi all.

    Notice I need to change my tumblr address... but at least it isn't linking to my *ahem* "nusswuff" blog...

    Which my mum would just ask me if I have a girlfriend so I would be "forced" to spill the proverbial beans and thus "out" myself...

    You did (or at least the main index page) - I scanned it briefly but thought it was all technical medical stuff, and didn't scroll down enough to see the Consumer Information section

    For everyone else, have the link. There's some amazingly useful stuff starting about half way down the page.

    EDIT: BIRCHGROVE! You're back! Where have you been?

    ...I think I've managed to convince myself that my fluctuations are in fact real, and not being a special snowflake. Reading the booklet from the above site about SRS, I was thinking that it actually sounded quite appealing. Last time I thought about it, I was just heading back to male, and completely and totally freaked out about the idea. Such a wide gulf in my visceral reaction can't just be me making things up.

    Shoes aren't the greatest (they're growing on me as my first girl shoes though, lol), but they were only a tenner and confirmed that I am, in fact, a size 10 - I was looking through the kmart for something I could buy cheaply to test out when someone asked if I needed help finding anything. I replied that I knew the style "but just eneded to find it in my size..."
    Cue awkward pause and them thnakfully assuming it was just a slip of the tongue on my part
    (well it was technically)

    Was going to do some more shopping today but I saw someone in the store who I'm not out to so made a quick strategic withdrawl before they saw me.
    I have to admit, I did a double take when I saw the picture, then had to look at who's post I was look at to figure out who it was, and was very surprised to see it was you!(in a good way!!!)
    I have to say, I am a heels man, and that revved my engine a little.......then got myself a little confused

    My parents just read the e-mail I sent them, and they are reacting exactly as I predicted: my mom is freaking out and demanding to know more information that I feel comfortable giving, and my dad is being stand-offish and saying he's not convinced it's important enough to warrant his time.

    This is going to be a long 9 days...

    @ Asta - That is good news! However, we have to keep it in context: the transplant was between two female bodies that are genetically related. How that would work from a female body to a male body with no genetic similarity, I'm not so convinced it would go quite as well.

    I don't think male or female body would matter that much, honestly. Remember, one of these ladies were born without a uterus, and once you're on HRT that's basically the situation trans women are in as well. The abdominal cavity is pretty accomodating and a non-pregnant uterus isn't very large. And there's no reason to suspect that the immune response would be greater for trans women than it is for cis women. Of course, if the trans woman could get a uterus from their biological mother that would make things much easier.

    Well, the bone structure of naturally born women accommodate a little better the bearing of children. That isn't to say that one day we will be able to change everything in there and completely rework things. But genetically female to female is much different from female to male, esp if they aren't a genetic match, due to blood types conflicting, organs not liking the environment of someone else's body....etc etc. There are just so many factors that go into transplants that need to be as close as possible for the best possible outcome, i.e. the body accepting the part that was transplanted.

    All that being said, that is a wonderful step in the right direction, and I hope they are able to go even further with this step/technology.

    Here I am again... first of all, I have to confess, I feel a bit guilty only posting here when I have problems. I'm sorry for that, I really don't intend to be so self-centered or selfish and I do constantly lurk around the thread and read your stories with interest and you all have my sympathies. I just don't feel I have anything useful to add.

    Now, I did start writing my "coming out" letter, to my dad. It was fully written, but I chickened out and then a few days later we got in some fight over something quite irrelevant, but it was an excuse for me to postpone it. I'll try finding the letter again and just confronting him with it when the time is right (knowing the time will never be really perfect).

    Ive been confused lately though. I've been having strong feelings for a girl and we had lunch together. We had such a great time and I felt great about it. Although I have to admit, it wasn't a real date and there wasn't much romance or flirting, so maybe it was nothing, but I felt really good about myself. It confuses me something, since it made me feel very "manly" and in charge.

    I'm also thinking about ways I could experiment with feminine clothing, make-up etc, but since I'm still living at home, that would be difficult. Guess, it would be easier to just come out already.

    Best wishes regarding the parents.

    I'm sure it would work from a mother to a male-bodied daughter. The next step is simply cloning uteruses. The male body contains an X chromosome, so there should be enough data to grow your own once we figure that out. Barring faulty and recessive genes, anyway.

    Eh, I'm waiting for them to just be able to grow new bodies and just transplant the consciousness over. That or insert genes to backup memories directly to DNA--possible introducing a new chromosome just for data storage and recovery--so I can clone myself and live forever or at least long enough to domesticate bears.

    They've already developed methods to encode arbitrary data in DNA. The problem isn't storing stuff in DNA, it's figuring out how memories work and how to transfer them back to knowledge/memories after being stored as DNA, since currently we can only work with them vaguely and indirectly.

    But hey, we have the building blocks, all we have to do is put it together, right? We'll probably have that done in 20 years.

    Yeah, I know. I don't keep entirely up to date with everything but I've read up on this. The main issues are figuring out how memory works and figuring out how to make the body back that up in quaternary on its own.

    I just found out about no homophobes dot com today from a facebook friend. A bit sobering, and those with common triggers and those who are easily discouraged would probably do better to avoid it. Still, fairly interesting.

    Some of the ones I saw weren't so bad. Any software that just does pattern recognition for 1 or 2 words is going to miscategorize it as hate speech when, for example, a fellow posts "Yes, cute guy at work. I'm so gay I cry rainbows. We SHOULD go out sometime."

    True. But most of the ones it picks up are negative uses, based on sitting watching incoming posts for a few minutes.

    Wait, is that actually possible? Crying rainbows seems to be a contradiction in terms. Maybe smiling a rainbow but crying? Noes.

    Some quick Googling suggests that it is possible.

    Anyway, hi all.

    Notice I need to change my tumblr address... but at least it isn't linking to my *ahem* "nusswuff" blog...
    Hey Birch~ *Glomps* ^_^

    Which my mum would just ask me if I have a girlfriend so I would be "forced" to spill the proverbial beans and thus "out" myself...

    All that being said, that is a wonderful step in the right direction, and I hope they are able to go even further with this step/technology.
    Earlier on, c-sections would be the thing to do. A hysterectomy may or may not be necessary as far as I know... Hopefully it'll eventually be possible to fully incorporate everything~

    Not fond of my face in that pic - looks too male. Best I could do with the lighting and such though.

    I'm waiting for 'em to figure out how to use whatever it is they're trying to use to clean up "junk DNA" - at that point, we'll have pretty much cured old age. After that we can tackle making work-arounds like brain extensions and the aforementioned genetic memory.
