First of all, thank you to everyone for their kind words. It's been great to hear from so many people :-) I've
decided that I'll probably survive and of course my hair will grow back eventually (see July 21st post). I wanted to address a question
that some of the younger girls have asked me. Who I found to be a role model (among the trans community) when I
was deciding what to do with my life. Well the truth is, I've talked with a lot of other girls over the years
who were in various stages of transition and they were all an inspiration. Unfotunately, once a t-girl ultimately
becomes a full-time girl if she is lucky, talented, and works hard enough at it she is no longer seen as a t-girl
but as any other natural girl. This of course is very desirable and once you get used to it, being identified as a
t-girl becomes rather undesireable. So, as much as I'd like to point out all the girls that I looked up to over
the years going through these same things, I feel as though I would be doing them a disservice. Many of them are no
longer on the web, and those that are have different websites now, where they identify as girls. I guess this
was one of the main reasons that I decided to start my website (that and because I'm a complete narcissist, lol).
How else do young aspiring t-girls know what to expect except by examples set before them? Now, of course, I don't
pretend to have all the answers, actually mostly all I have is questions, but maybe my experiences will help others
on the same path. So, if you're looking for role models, where should you start? There are still lots of girls out
on the web to learn from. If you think that you qualify as ts, check out Kathryn's site.
She's been through it all and took notes on the way. Plus her site is totally kickin'. If you're cd/tv/etc. Aubrey's is
always a good read. Just take a look around the web. It may take some time, but I guarantee there are others out
there with information who were standing right where you are at one time.
