My advice is this: the world is ready to accept you. You are the only one holding yourself back. If I had understood this, 28 years or so ago, today I would not be lonely.

Steal? By the gods man! Just quote him! I quote Hardy and Chorcer and Wilde all the time. We all stand on the shoulders of giants. To leave their words fallow is to do them, a most heinous disservice.

I'm flattered, I don't have any objections, Mr.  Ratchet and Mr.  Angus, , but this is just the process of finding myself. For me, being able to open myself to someone else has always been a challenge. But revealing my pacifier in this forum falls short from that goal.

Being successful in my case is more akin to bungee jumping for the first time when you're afraid of heights. The real test will come when I fully reveal myself in person to the candidate who will earn my trust, and possibly share my life, as my disorder exclusively operates on those to whom I'm attracted, and thus by reaching my heart that candidate would be in a position to hurt me. Until I have the courage to expose myself like that, any praise is unwarranted!

EDIT:  Now, praiseworthy courage, is taping a live music video in this getup  Cheesy

Perhaps "Mr. Ring/Open-ended" or "Mr. Adjustable"...?    Grin

Sorry, I couldn't avoid the spanner-related humour, although a ratchet usually swings both direction anyways.
The 'awful confusion' is relatively commonplace here on BG.
There are transpersons who who have solidly named themselves one way or another, and there are persons of all gender/types who have completely non-gendered names and who are thus randomly assumed to be one gender or another, depending on the topic or the viewer.
I look forward to your attempt to clarify your personal position in a simple handy-to-use name.

I believe Ms. Lesong is correct in stating that resistance efforts will take the form of "Freedom of Religion" arguments (another of the basic articles in the "American Magna Carta").

but this is just the process of finding myself. For me, being able to open myself to someone else has always been a challenge.

It is easy to get screwed over. By gum I have been by a few! It is difficult finding yourself. I myself have been many things. Then I realized that I was trying to define myself by the labels that other people wished to give me. I am this, I like that, I like this I am that. While humanity aches for simplicity it's possible, as Einstein so adequately put it; a theory should be as simple as possible but no simpler.  Maybe the attempt of others to over simplify belies the beautiful complexity of the equation.

Maybe we are all many things. Maybe most of us would like to be more. Or just have moments, stifled by our good and proper frontal lobes that strangles momentary passions.

I like joy. As such I am outing myself as a Bon viveur. I fear it will kill me, but the journey, will be long and nothing short of rapture! We must all face ourselves eventually and some of our paths have the risk of not ending well as a result. Good thing is although we should be at peace with ourselves. It is our right to hide.

I mean Bon viveur, really?

I'm certainly not going to put it on my CV.  Cheesy

now, not to skip the singular best holiday of the year, but I need help D:

December is my girlfriend I's nine month anniversary, and then Christmas is happening-- she's also a fellow steampunk, but I just don't know what to get her! This is the first time i've ever had a relationship last into birthdays and holidays, and while I would love to be grossly sentimental and get her something actually useful, i'd like to get her something for her first complete costume we'll be debuting in May. or something grossly sentimental and also vintage that we can work in.
I'd start later and actually celebrate halloween but my budgeting is in a crunch until holiday hours kick in .__.

Engraved pocket watch? If you could source one with a flip-open front the engraving could be on the inside -  a little more private and intimate. Or a vintage locket, relplete with pictures?

Through the magic of Photoshop...

 *snip*
...instead of green or brown corduroy we have genuine lederhosen suede shorts. The shirt/blouse is long sleeve, but for Texas, I'm planning a short sleeve shirt with either bubble or cap shoulders.  The colour of the harness may be too dark and red in this picture; on the other hand I could incorporate burgundy in a black-burgundy-khaki-white colour pattern. 

*snip*

This time I actually borrowed the thigh high socks, boots and spats directly from Kato's romper. This gives you a better idea of what I *think* I'm going.  Definitely looks better.

Thank you for your comments, Mr. Angus. I definitely need to continue working on photos, and still have to finish the Luftshiffengel project, but somehow the Chinese thing got in the way, at the spur of the moment. Seamless, unforced, natural adrogyny, as the fictional character Dio inspired on me, remains a focus of mine.

Dear Admiral Wilhlem,
In just over months time we have one of the year's major festivals - is that not an auspicious time to debut the Luftshiffengel?

Yours,
Miranda.


Eureka! How about woolen shorts?  Seems that people in Korea and China have a penchant for thick woolen shorts and skorts...

Much like any other lady I have ever known, I'm quite sure she has been dropping subtle hints. Think back to the times she has said she liked something. Go with the things she liked. Not because they were the best present ever. Simply because it will mean so much more that you were paying attention to her and remembered.

There is a subtle yet pit trapped beauty in the feminine mind. But I don't need to tell you this do I? Cheesy

It seems the City of Austin is significantly more progressive than the City of Houston....

While not entirely a surprise ("Keep Austin Weird" remember?), Houston once used to be a bastion of LGBQT rights.  It doesn't seem so relevant nowadays, I'm afraid.

Is this really an issue worthy of a state-wide plebiscite?
I had always assumed that not peering at the individual standing at the next urinal or using a cubicle was simply common courtesy* even in completely-straight traditional non-unisex establishments, so one wouldn't particularly notice who/what/which was utilising the facilities.
