The bearded lady

Wow, if you ask me Hayek still looks hot, and feminine. Bearded ladies are supossed to be horny, lusty. passionate women. Or at least according to freak folklore. Hayek will play the bearded lady in a upcoming vampire can read about it here.

During the winter I often sport a beard and for many weeks on hand I too am the bearded lady, a look that isn't as bad as it could be. Still it's jarring. I prefer shaved and powdered to rough and painted.

Random ramblings

I'm wearing the top and wanting the brush...grr..ahh

So I'm with the misses on a school supply hunt and, amid the crass masses, a knotted family is scolding a small boy for choosing a pink football over a regular pig skin. This is Wal Mart, mind you, and here I am with some purple nail polish for myself amid the pencils and glue. I meant to pick up that new Maybelline vibrating mascara brush, my new crush, but plumb forgot. Incidentally the boy got his pink football, sorta, thanks to his sister who insisted on one of her own. They were in front of me in the checkout line. Little kid still stared at it, as my boys did too, for I was cheap mom-dad and did not allow the kids a toy purchase (they got candy instead).

Pink can change your sexuality. Mahawwah. It's a conspiracy.


Anyhoo. The misses and me exchange more meaningful dialogue about my crossdressing and my trans-ness. She doesn't call it anything, but alludes to it, at least until today when she recommended a Shakespeare book. "It's all about crossdressing," she whispered....I was shocked she said it aloud. And thrilled. Will keep you updated on the book and other...

Since we've shared a bit of the experience it has become less scary for her. I think for couples for which the gender card is played late, it is important for both parties to be at ease with it. When I came out I suspected she thought I was suddenly going to go to work in make-up with a scarf around my neck and platform shoes (not that I haven't thought about it mind you). Life is great.

Boxers no more!

Recently MSN "broke" this story of a boxer, Rob Newbiggin," or "Mercedes," who wants a sex change, among other things, to fight women...

As usual the tone is trans people are novelties...and I'm afraid to report...we are. Most of the world is made up of stones and we are Anyway worth checking out...
