This article is interesting and the reactions/ratings on the comments, as to which are positively scored and which not - well that is encouraging. Some of the comments themselves are well reasoned and the whole got me thinking. This was a good thing at the time, given I was in a bit of a funk ... or sliding toward one.

So here I'll add a few of my own thoughts on the matter, given it's an issue that has always interested me and one that seems to be constantly revisited.

The messy stuff ... )

Today is exactly 18 months since I started Hormones - yay boobies! :P

That is all .. other than to note, with hindsight, things happen faster than you expect - so when looking ahead, waiting, one should always remember that and make sure the message hits the patience gene :)

Today I received the official letter from the Office of the Registrar General. I am now officially "Kate Sylvia Elizabeth <lastname>"


That is all atm.

Something feels like it has shifted. I'm not going to get over-excited or ahead of myself - I'm just going to let it settle and see. Perhaps talking to people other than a Head Doctor about details (and that detail I hadn't even told a Head Doc) was part of it. Perhaps my Silent Time has also helped - seeing things move by without me and noticing nothing changes, well ... except there are more periods of silence. Heh. I think also that this busy day has helped. Very tired now but satisfied.

Woke up late so couldn't get public transport. I knew I had a full day and could stay on schedule as long a I reached the first appointment on time - so I fronted up for a taxi (eeps - $55 of taxiness ... a little more than the $3.20 PT woulda cost).

But - worth it, because I got there. Had a Head Doc session; another IPL session on the face;more work on eyebrows AND added an eyelash tint. Hehe - it is noticeable, given the 'quick glance and look away' ratio I go for the rest of the day. Hehehe. Then I hit the offices of the Registrar General.

I have my name change docs all submitted and should get the result in mail by Tuesday - Wednesday at the latest. My new full name? - Kate Sylvia Elizabeth <last name> (Hey, gotta suppress the last since this is a public to all post).

So yays for full days and the gentle foreboding of emotional calm.

This article, despite the thoughts of many right-wing commentators, is generally well-written and thoughtful. The author manages to show all the angles without revealing any serious prejudices. Made me smile.


As for the parents - how amazing are they? As to the child - my namesake - I wish I'd been brave enough to speak out at that age.

This is an essay I've been working on for a while. It's had a few readings and suggestions (from friends) and many edits. It is long, but please read with an honest heart and let me know what you think :)

It is intended as the first of seven - depending upon how well it goes ;)

So enjoy.
