These pages are meant to inform and to express opinions that are strictly my own. There is a disturbing trend that many people tend to think that Transgender Transsexuals are something straight out of the Jerry Springer Show. Mention the “T” word and images of raging men in fishnets and miniskirts shouting obscenities in anything but a ladylike fashion spring to mind. As a woman would you want any of these characters in the Lady’s Room?
The disturbing fallout from these images naturally line up people to oppose any laws designed to protect Transsexual crossdressers from prejudice and bad behavior caused by other’s misinformation. Disturbing Images are often more powerful than volumes of truth.
The little angel to the left represents my new beginning. As a male to female transsexual I have long ago gone through the formative years that prepared me to blend into the male role, whether I wanted to or not (I didn’t). Nevertheless it helped me blend in to avoid suspicion. No-one knew what my innermost secrets and desires were or my pain. Now, as a Male to Female (MtF) PRE-OP transsexual, I am about to go through childhood and yes, puberty all over again, but this time, as a girl. Hopefully at the end of that (along with some physical changes) I will be able to blend in with the rest of those of the female gender. That’s a far cry from other transsexuals who seem determined to create as much turmoil and dissension as they can. Personally I think you can serve your own purposes with sugar & spice rather then with vinegar and lighter fluid. Besides, children aren’t supposed to play with matches.
To get a second chance at life, at starting over and still have the wisdom of all ones mistakes would be a dream come true for many. So I’m 57 years of age going on 13. Hopefully as I regrow, I’ll become the best woman I can possibly be and an asset to society. What a great thrill to be able to see life through the innocent eyes of a child again.
So come into the playground and swing on the swings with me jump the rope, play a little hopscotch and throw a few jacks. Hopefully you’ll leave this site with a few more smiles than what you came in with and a little more understanding. More importantly you realize that you are not alone.
The site will grow as I do through my transsexual transition. Of course this site would not be possible without the support and caring from three dear friends. a loving partner and an excellent caring staff of 89. I want to thank them all from the bottom of my heart. Thank You all.

Our moderators and supervisors are a fine group of volunteer folks dedicated to keeping the peace, providing support and lowering our high Transgender suicide rate which has been estimated at 31%.

This is the same course taken by Suicide hot line operators. A moderator can usually be found in our chat rooms.
