A previous coworker still tries to keep in touch with a lot of people at my company by forwarding chain emails to us. Some are funny or heartwarming stories that everyone can relate to, some are…Read More
I once read a blog about explaining to genetic born women what it's like to be a cross dresser or transgender individual. It had the woman imagine that she wanted to hang out with other women and…Read More
This post is a few weeks late now, but I haven't had much time to just sit down and write for a bit. Anyway, April 2013 was a very eventful month for me.

My problem with telling my friends is that we only seem to see each other in group settings, and I would prefer to tell select people in a one-on-one setting instead. Aside from the group…Read More
