Back in the day

OK, I will shut up at some point but for now, I have this.
Calling all those people who remember what it was like growing up in the seventies.
When I was going through puberty, I realised that inside I had all these feminine thoughts.All I knew was that I wanted to be a girl. I was at senior school and felt slightly envious of the girls wearing skirts.
But who could I talk to about it?
Just remember,there was no such thing as social media, you couldn't go online to find out if there was other people like you.
Talking to my parents was out of the question and any mates i had ,well no way
You have to remember that being gay had only been legal for a few years.
Sitting in the bathroom with the door locked wearing my mum's panties bra and tights felt so good but so wrong.
That's what I remember from those days.

Yes it was a different time, also through the 80s.

Re: Back in the day

In the 60's and 70's - I remember reading and hearing about a few Transgendered or Transsexual people.  Such a forbidden subject and I wished to be one of those people.  I believed if I just used my mind I could grow breasts.  But I did not.  The science of change is so much better now.  If I had just known and was able back then; I would be a woman today. Now just too much baggage - but I am fairly passable, still a male, but most think I am a woman.  I like this place. sad  smile

Re: Back in the day

I know this is a response to an old, old thread, but I feel I can contribute in case someone comes along and wants to relate.

In any instance, the power of numbers is very important. It's a confidence and informational boost. If you are one going against 50, the chances are you could get in some serious trouble. You would be made to feel guilty about what you were doing, but on a social level. With social media and the internet, we now can find those numbers on our side easily. PoC and LGBTQ are now more outspoken than ever before because they have more numbers on their side. With that, we then help educate others about what it's all about. However, on the flip side, other groups are just as outspoken. With so much civil unrest and outspoken opinions, we're in what I call a Civil Cold War. Anytime I hear people complain that social media and the internet are "ruining" things, I chalk it up to that person having their secure bubble burst and they don't like how their world is different now than it used to be.

Let's face facts. We (being trans people) are not a very large group of people. With those numbers, you gain that confidence and feel better about who you are. Representation is important. We're finally breaking the chains that social constructs have sought to regulate.
