50th post!

12 11 2008

I know most “milestone” posts happen at the 100th post but . . . I go through long periods of inactivity so that might take a whole other year. So here’s to 50 posts! (and two drafts!!! and a list of at least 5-6 posts-to-be!)

I have to say that I’ve enjoyed blogging here. I feel like starting a WP blog connected me to a really cool and supportive trans and queer community, something that I never found on LJ when I first started over there about a year ago. Instead of hurtful comments and silly, immature arguments about who has the right to call themselves FTM (like on LJ), I found a diverse group of trans and queer folk of all stripes who support each other and discover new ideas through dialogue.

So, here are some stats to mark the 50th:

Yay for milestones! Boo for inactivity! You’re forgiven though ’cause you’re going to have a PhD. πŸ˜‰

happy 50th. Hey I have a question. Is your facial hair for real and if it is what the hell am I doing wrong????

Hey Cristopher;

Yes, it’s for real! But I had a lot of chin hair before even starting T. I spent most of my life desperately getting rid of it with Veet (YUK!) on an almost daily basis out of embarrassment when I was trying to be a girl. No longer! And now T has made it thicker. At 4 1/2 months, sideburns started to come in quite dark and it’s growing thicker every week. I think I’m just blessed with genetic predisposition. My dad was a very hairy man. Like him, I’ve also got hair on my back and it’s coming in on my chest and belly. Existing leg and arm hair is getting nice and thick and frizzy.
