Since I've got time I thought I'd start by answering a few questions that were posted:
>Which direction are you transgender? Male-Female or Female-Male? Keep up the blog, i'm sure it can be tough to talk about it.
I am male to female. I officially started on hormone therapy one year ago, and now live every day as a female, though I am still officially male.
>Has it been rough being transgender in the midwest, sorry for stereotyping though.
>does the midwest really tolerate it?
Heh, thought that might come up. The few religious people I've spoken with on the matter didn't really seem to like it, but I've never encountered outright resentment or hatred of any kind. The worst I've gotten is had a guy change his mind at the bar when he finds out(though they don't always. ^_^).
I attribute a lot of this to simply blending in. I'm 5 foot even and weigh 100 pounds. I've been mistaken for a girl all my life. 98% of the people I meet don't have the slightest clue.
I may consider posting some pictures(tastful of course) in the future but I really want this to be more informative and less "Small tits or GTFO!".
