Transition

Sugar And Spice

Once I decided to transition, I was a little disappointed that you aren’t handed a manual. Becoming A Woman For Dummies would be particularly useful.  But in the real world, it’s observation and application that’s required to make any headway. I’ve a long way to go but anything I have learned has been from watching female friends, or even strangers, and then appropriating the things that I like about them. That has helped me get comfortable with the outside part that the world sees first. The harder part is what does being a woman even mean anyway? I can work on clothes, hair, makeup and voice. I can modify mannerisms and try to change behaviours but that’s still not it. Mostly it’s a steep learning curve and all you can do is keep trying your best. Now, does anyone have a copy of that bloody book lying around?
