Another nail for my heart

Its been a funny sort of week, in truth, in more ways than one.

Earlier this week, the orange, bewigged Russian one threw enough of a temper tantrum that he got his way on one issue that has annoyed him. Seems the rule to stop Transgender people from serving in the American Military forces has been finally passed after numerous efforts. Even more amusing of course, in the week it was announced that one of the General’s who helped to fight for the independence of his country (assuming it isnt Russia?) was either a woman, or even more horrible for him, intersex.

The more amusing side of that is that at least 2 states (maybe more?) have already told him that they wont be getting rid of any transgender people already serving in their state military command groups, and will still accept applications from anyone desiring to do so. I’m sure if he hasnt already Tweeted (high security method, not) on the matter, he soon will be.

The other LGBT news I’ve heard today comes care of Australia, Sydney, to be exact

I must admit, there would have been a few cities that if you’d told me would be candidates to do it, Sydney would have been one of them. Thank you for the gesture. Not that I guess I would ever have seen it, even if my body hadnt totally given up on me, thats far too far away, but at least I know its there, which is something. Somehow I cant see the guy mentioned previously will be rushing to use that crossing somehow. I’d love to, but now especially, I think I might have to pass on that.

Why, you ask? Well, a couple of days ago, I had to post a letter to work, re my health issues, and I thought that as the post box was only about 200 yards away, and no one else was readily available to post it, I’d give it a go, and see how it went. Well, going down the hill was ‘interesting’ but I survived, just. Snag is, I then had to come back up the hill, and that was a whole different game! I did make it, but it hurt! I’ve also noticed that the stairs at home, when I’m carrying anything (especially full cups), are distinctly becoming a challenge, coming up. So yes, the old girl is definitely busted, for sure. I suspect unless something dramatic can be done to me, I wont be walking far in future. 😦

Oh, and talking of busts… As some already know, and others will now know, I look like I’ve got a decent cleavage. No, its not some magical hormone, or the fact I have a friendly fairy godmother who provided me with a decent pair of boobs. Believe me, if the latter was the case, I’d have got her to remove something else at the same time! Many women are unfortunate enough to have mastectomies due to breast cancer, a charity whose cause I used to support when I had any money. For those women, prosthetics are provided that give the image that they still have breasts. I’m not the only Transgender women that uses them, I’m sure, but we arent strictly the main market for them. These silicon breasts are fantastic, give a great look, are designed to be about the right weight, and are great, providing you dont put too much weight on them. I dont, I have a foam pair I use at night (vanity, I know), which can take just about anything. Of course, when I was in hospital, the pair I was using were the silicon ones, and they didnt take kindly to being slept in, especially the one on the side I slept on. So yes, its a bit damaged, and I’ve had to buy a new pair which arrived this week. More expense, ah well… Mind, if anyone knows of a similar vagina I could wear 24/7, without toilet issues, please let me know. Hiding ‘that thing’ would be heaven, and far less painful than surgery!

Right, video time. Bit of a clue in the blog title, how original!

Various Transgender matters

I know, its been a while, sorry about that, but work is just an issue that gets in the way when my days off work like they have the last 2 weeks. Monday/Tuesday last week, today and tomorrow this, you get the gist? Which means that there is probably plenty to catch up on with me, but here are 3 interesting issues that have come up since I last posted.

Firstly, care of the RSS feed at work, I discovered that the US armed forces are reconsidering their stance towards transgender people serving with them…for the better! Currently, if you are trans, you’re not serving the country, but maybe soon…Mind, over there, until recently in the forces, gay folk either didnt join, or didnt admit it. Given I’m not American, too old to serve, and everything else, it doesnt actually affect me, but I thought it worth mentioning.

Next, to a subject matter that is rarely seen for me, football, aka soccer, discovered by one of my Facebook friends. Let me take you to one of the weaker (alright, currently the weakest) football nations in the whole world, American Samoa. It seems that in a number of the Pacific Islands, that third gender exists legally. No, I’m not going to tell you what it is, google the story if you must know! But what has happened, one of those ‘ladies’ is now playing for the national men’s football team!

Oh, and lastly, but not least, I take you to another subject matter that I have no interest in, the Eurovision song contest! Now, to be honest, I have no details on whether this guy is actually transgender, or just dresses as a woman to evoke hate in some? It certainly worked with many Russian folk at the weekend, but given the Ukraine situation at present, isnt it good to annoy them? Despite that, he/she ran away with victory at the song contest.

This is the song, if its painful to your ears, dont blame me!
