Cheers love.  And I feel as if I should welcome you to this society, but I think you're already welcome so...<3

So...where's the boob pixs?  Did I miss them?  :(

 

I've talked to you before on the WoT Forum and I had no inclination as to your gender then, and I much don't care what you are now.  IOW I accept you as a fellow WoT player and one that has given me great advice in the past.  I also accept you as a person and I know you didn't have to share this personal thing with the community, I am glad you did.

 

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Well, you know.  Boob pix will follow healing and after their installation date.  You know how these Boob Technicians are.  They say they'll be there between two and six and don't show up until eight and then track saline and stuff all over the carpet.  I appreciate the sentiment.  I shared this because it's..well..It's I guess terminal.  You don't go back from this point. It's unrepairable for me.  It's a terminal condition I'd never want to ever get rid of :)  My "gender" doesn't so much matter.  It's more the process of what goes into changing how I feel and am to other people.  It's incredible stuff.  Science, medicine and whatnot.

 

 

This is honestly one of the best responses a person like me could get.  It's just, normality.

I admit that in the past i haven't been the most accepting person when it came to transgender or even gay people, its all where i grew up and the people i was around living in a more rural area. 

Guess it took meeting a few good people in this community to almost 180 the way i saw things my whole life, and this is only in the last 3 or 4 years. So God bless and continue living the way you see fit and not the way others perceive you should.  

 

Also bewbs pls.

Such is the risk of the Internets where trolls lurk and people spout opinion as fact :P

 

Thank you Miros.

 

 

So, platoon?

 

When I come back to play tanks.  I've been taking a break.  I needed some time to get my head right.  Plus, playing tanks while my hormonal levels are imbalanced is a poor idea.  Personally I've been prone to a bit of mood swings.  Not..not so good when dealing with pubbies.  I, you know I don't really want to end up in tears and chat banned? XD

 

Was wondering when you'd come out.

 

Stay strong, Bun.

 

Thank you Shacky.  You know I always <3 you much.

Congrats on making the first step to becoming outwardly what you've always been on the inside, Erica! I hope you're surrounded by positive and supportive people IRL to keep you going strong. I know we can't pick our family, but we can pick our friends and the WoTLabs community is largely filled with nice folks. I, for one, am glad you monologued the shit outta this forum!

 

Welcome again, the new you! :​D

Wotlabs is my facebook because it's filled with 100% less stupid people than facebook.  So, it's pretty much Tankbook.

 

I am surrounded by that actually.  My wife stayed with me, she's all for it.  My friends, my family are with me.  My parents find out this weekend or the next, dunno if I'll chicken out.  I wanted to have hard things for them to have to accept.  The medication is..pretty solid, it requires letters of approval and diagnosis.

Also your spouse/significant other must be an incredible individual as well.  

 

I know you don't really know me save from being "yet another anonymous bleewb", but I've been down the the depression road before.

 

I'm thankful I managed to make it through to the otherside, likewise for yourself.

She's more incredible than I can ever express.  This kind of thing has the habit of destroying families.  A wise woman once told the very wise woman who does my hair. "We must be prepared to lose everything, our families, our friends, our jobs.  At this cost, we gain ourselves."  It's true.  Thankfully I'm one of the extremely lucky few who hasn't lost anyone (yet).

 

Getting through depression is hard.  Very hard.  It's the ones that don't make it that should give us reasons to keep going.  Beyond our own.

HAHA, I get a neg rep...WTF?

LOL, good stuff Bun.  Indeed...SCIENCE effing rules.  I am right there with you on that.

 

How amazing is it that you have a wife that is all for your happiness.  You are very lucky to have that.  If you ever decide to start you own personal blog (wordpress.com is a great free tool - I have one for my Sci-Fi stories) sharing your past experiences, pain, etc and also when the day comes for your journey to surgery...I would love to read that!  

 

I mean, what a great way to reach out to others that went (or are going) through the same things you did...the suffering, the suicidal thoughts.  I think you could really help a lot of hurting people out there.

This is freaking awesome. <3 you, Tuco!

 

Also: Bun's wife is amazing. Really. You picked her good, Bun!

I think someone missclicked XD.  I do try to reach out to anyone who may be suffering similarly to myself across the platforms I'm present on.  Furaffinity, Second life, now here.  It's my goal to take my grand fortune of having support and relay it on to others who may not be so fortunate.  To do anything less would be irresponsible in my eyes.  I may not be able to help people in other countries, as tolerances, centers, laws, everything's vastly different.  But, here in the states at least I can do Something.

 

This *IS* My first blog post.

Many ignorant people don't accept transgenders into the society because they see them as freaks. I have friends who are completely disgusted by them, and they piss me off so much. Seriously, ignorant much? 

They are humans, like us. They shouldn't be looked down upon. 

It takes courage to be able to write this, and no matter what, your friends and people who care about you will accept you in the society. The dumb people walking on this earth have different opinions, and it should never ever bother you, or care about them. 

I am a young woman, and I always had a soft side for people like you, and gays/lesbians. I couldn't see why people can't accept them. 

Stay strong, Bun. ^^

You're a brave woman, Bun. Most of the openly transgender people I know are incredibly brave too. It's not exactly something the rednecks and neo-cons here in VA are comfortable with.

 

Once I start performing again I'll send some invites your way. Should be hitting the Tidewater area in a couple months.

"One small step for a man, one giant leap for man kind..."

I have some similar feelings along the way, constantly confuse, angry and depress; don't know who or what.

My wife stayed with me, she's all for it.

 

Wow, she sounds incredible.  Do you guys have kids and if so, how did you handle that part?  Sorry if this is too personal, I'm just an intensely curious person.

 

And you better deliver on the boob pix.  I will have it as my desktop background and subtitle it "My Hero."

LOL...right on.  I was almost curious to the point of paranoia that someone from the other forum decided to follow and neg me.  Silly how the brain works, isn't it?  OIY.  Time to put the tin-foil hat away.

 

I think you are doing a great thing here Erica.  I hope you can help those in need, as well as help those who are ignorant to learn how to become enlightened by accepting of others...because we are all HUMAN.  You never know, there are a lot of people from all over that play World of Tanks.  You might be surprised at how many you might be able to reach and help, even if by proxy.  

 

All it takes is one.

 

Congratulations then on your first blog post!  I look forward to more. :)

As long as you aren't a clicker, I'm cool with it.

P.S. I can't decide if its a good thing that our resident neckbeards are treating you like any other woman (ie, boob requests) or if it shows how backwards they actually are. :O

Well. I can't reply to everyone yet. I'm on mobile but I will when I get home. As for this. It's not what it looks like Garbad. To me? The day I can be happy to wear a shirt that shows them a bit? I will. Why wouldn't I share something that worth celebrating.

That's boob day. Nobody can dislike boob day. They're not being awful. It's a bit of humor that everyone can chuckle at. They're not backwards in this case. In this case. Boob pix are a victory for all. Especially me.
