Back From Alaska
Hi! I'm back! Oh..... you didn't know that I was gone? Well yeah, I decided to not announce my trip here as that is unfortunately not a good idea to do on the internet. So.... anywho..... my wife and I got to take a cruise to Alaska! Exciting, huh? The above photo is from when Jules and I were in Ketchikan Alaska.
We had an exciting time, but it was also a bit stressful. Unfortunately Jules' father is not doing very well as he is aging but he does not really want to accept it. Instead he decided to take all his kids on a cruise to Alaska. It probably was not in his and his wife's best interest to go on an Alaskan cruise, but he would not be talked out of it. So.... we all pitched in to make this thing happen. And it was some work, but we also figured out how to have fun as well.
I chose to not fully dress at any point while on the trip, but I did dress in a mixed gender fashion the entire time. What was my real big breakthrough? Stretch pants! Yup stretch pants while presenting as a male. As a male you might ask? Yes as a male. Although I was dressed in women's clothes from head to toe, except for most dinners, carried a purse, had my nails painted, and wore visible breasts, yup I was presenting as a male.
How so? The beard. It really is a dead giveaway. I don't mind. I find it amusing. Frequently I ponder how others are perceiving me and what is going on in their head. I mean they have got to know that I am transgender. I don't make any efforts at all to hide it. Really all I do is to not make the effort to wear makeup and a wig. So, it's like lazy cross dressing? Maybe.... I like to think of it as being gender non-conforming.... well, but now, even when I say that, I think, nope, I think of it as simply being transgender.
Okay. Just a quick thought.
Oh.... my blog has kind of been on autopilot since I have been gone. Comments have been published but I have not had a chance to reply back to any of them. I thank you for your contributions to my blog and I will get to replying to you all soon!
