Transapathy, it stops here

Too much apathy in the trannysphere just now, not enough flouncing about in girls clothes, it has to stop, now or as soon after now as is trannily possible. (ok I'm stretching the use of 'tranny' there a bit).

I had some horrible trannying the other night, I was sitting at home, veging 'wish I was being a girl tonight' I thought, but between me and the me I wanted to see in the mirror was a couple of hours of plastering and making good with my good friends Rimmel and MAC. So the solution was easy, go to it with the brushes and the lip gloss orrrr (and heres the clever bit) just avoid mirrors (taps side of nose with finger to indicate extreme cleverness). So it started easy enough, I just slipped a skirt on, my legs were shaved anyway so I didn't have to catch sight of non girly legs. Skirt led half an hour later to a top, a top didn't feel right without boobs, so on went a bra and boobies, then intoxicated by this feeling of feminine grace and beauty on went a wig and then it all went wrong. Concerned that my faux hair was sitting like a patient but rather scruffy cat atop my noggin I stole a glance at a mirror - Oh You Stupid Tranny!!!! I looked ridiculous, the fragile mental image that I had managed to construct came crashing down, from Sandra Bullock to Sundry Bollox in one short look.

I got really really embarassed and couldn't get everything off quickly enough, I think thats what a 'normal' (for values of normal) bloke would feel wearing girls clothes, silly, very very silly. Lesson learned.

However, like the song, the malaise remains the same sooooo I propse Flickr Tranny Day, I Gillian Stuart, being a transvestite of sound mind and sexy body (I made that bit up) do hereby commit to posting a picture on flickr of me wearing girls clothes on 29th March 2008, said pic to be taken anytime in the preceeding two weeks.

There! I've said it, now who else is up for it? get up off your arses and be men, get that slap on and get into that dress! are we trannies or are we err normal people. No excuses, no 'too busy' no 'too tired' no 'but I'm in prison'. Just do it!

"Do, or do not. There is no try!" as a famous muppet once said.

I'm up for this. I need the impetus. And I've got an outfit or two I haven't worn yet.

I find that I can never shake off the "Oh You Stupid Tranny!!!! I looked ridiculous, the fragile mental image that I had managed to construct came crashing down, from Sandra Bullock to Sundry Bollox in one short look.

I got really really embarassed and couldn't get everything off quickly enough, I think thats what a 'normal' (for values of normal) bloke would feel wearing girls clothes, silly, very very silly." feeling and so although I would love with all my heart to join in this fun I feel that my pre-misconceptions always haunt me...

I have plenty of outfits but no wigs or make up. Hmmmm, makes me wonder what sort of tranny I actually am? Not a very good one me thinks...

Now I am sad.

Fi.

Fiona. The only person who can tell you what kind of tranny you are, is you.

If you don't want to do hair and makeup, do a neck-down shot, or take your picture in the mirror and hide your face behind the camera. Do whatever you are comfortable with, and dont feel pressured to do more if you dont want to.

On the grounds that I should be dressing at least twice between now and the 29th, I'll be up for this.

(Goes away to write blog post promoting it)

Great idea
But I haven't dressed as a woman for over a year now and I don't think it's going to change.
Good luck though!

Damn! Posted last week and forgot to hold back a decent one to post on Saturday. I *will* be dressing on Saturday, but probably won't be in a position to post the inevitable pics until Sunday. Does that count?

I read your post about the Flickr Tranny Day last week, and was inspired to take advantage of the opportunity last Saturday to spend a few hours dressed, trying on some newly purchased outfits, and of course getting some photos. I will load the best couple tomorrow.

I have been fortunate enough to have had a few opportunities recently where Rosi has been able to be herself and have already loaded some photos to my Flickr page and still have a few more to go. I'm fairly sure that life will revert to a more male dominated place for some time to come so your day and these other opportunities will give me plenty of good memories to look back on for a while.

Love and best wishes,
Rosi. XXX
