Just wondering...since she is one of my non-transitioning heroines (Okay, role models), how many of you follow Stana on her blog Femulate at Femulate.org? Currently, she is running a guest series on makeup that is very informative. She is a married transwoman who has decided not to transition — love her posts about fashion! Nancy

Just peeped into her site. For my taste, she is way overdoing the makeup stuff, I am not a drag queen who has to set her makeup. I am a believer in less is more. And the more of the stuff you put on, the more burden you putt onto you skin, and it cannot breathe anymore>

I have yet to use any foundation, or any of this stuff. Most cis women don't do this either, why should we look like a circus clown. I found this lot's of makeup thing mostly in trans newbie's or with trans women who are not sure about themself, and who want to express their femininity with a lot of paint on the face. My idea is that I want to look like the average cis women around, when my friends and I go out for a dance, i work a little more on my face, because they do, too. But day to day, never!

Hugs

@Linde not everyone is so lucky like you and the T worked on our faces for a much too long period. Especially in the early transition times it might be a very important thing to be skilled with make up to not get clocked so easily.

For me it's just fun to be creative and see what is possible. It's a way of expressing yourself even if your features are already rather female

Look on youtube for clips about contouring, there you can see what is possible.
A couple of years ago, Amber did this to my face. I was in my mid seventies already at that time.

I think you miss the point of the Femulate blog if all you looked at was her current guest posts about makeup — much more to the blog, and please note my intent in posting this in the section on Non-Transitioning. Our needs may be different given that many of us are not on HRT and most are not full-time. Nancy

BTW, please don’t hijack the thread into a debate about the merits (or lack thereof) of makeup. The post was about a non-transitioning transwoman who I admire.

They are doing it well on that site.

I also respect where she's coming from (married/not-transing). The guest writer is also I believe.

Sometimes wish that was me and we could be happy 😘 :giggle:
But I'm comfortable with a tighter budget towards clothes and cosmotics right now.

Sorry that's cosmatics.
Codmedics.

Femulate!

That’s good to know. I was wondering what percentage on this site were on HRT and how many were full time. It seems like a lot are on HRT. I don’t know if that’s the road I’ll take yet. Still learning. In my head and heart I’m full time and trying to be in the outside world. Dixie

Dixie, I think that you might be correct in your assessment that this forum is highly populated by our sisters who are on HRT, are transitioning, or who have completed transition— which is why I think this section for non-transitioners is particularly important. As a percentage of the overall transgender community, I believe there are more of us who do not transition — for a variety of reasons. We can learn a lot from each other, yet we have (obviously) sone very different needs and struggles.

I think of transgender as a continuum. It took me quite a while to come to terms with where I fit and wrestle with my decision. I knew that transitioning would mean not being married. Two very visible trans women (both married), who both have blogs that I follow are Stana and Femulate.org and Hannah McKnight at hannahmcknight.org.

I believe the founders and staff of this forum understand and entirely support those of us who choose not to transition (which is why they set aside this section) :) Nancy

We have attracted a number of crossdressers recently, and I'm hoping activity on this forum might encourage them to contribute. I know there is, in some parts of the community, a judgement that some trans people aren't trans enough, but that sentiment has no place here. We welcome and support all trans people and allies. As I've said elsewhere, if I had my choice, I would not have transitioned.

Hugs,

Allie

I agree with Allie, there is no trans police here, and there are no rules how trans one has to be to be trans, Everybody is different, and everybody has to go about being trans in their own pace.
For me, everybody is trans who feels that they were born in the wrong body, it is up to them to decide what they want to do bout it!

Happy transness (is that a word???)

Hugs
