Now... if someone could think of a way to make pickle cookies... Ugh, I know... Spiro cravings. I would borrow my wife's 20-quart mixer and make a batch which will last me the final 100 days on Spiro.

Lovely cookies everyone! I would love nothing more than getting a taste of these delicious treats.

Hugs,

Sarah
Oh my God pickle cookies sound amazing I will work on a recipe I swear

If you can't accept yourself,  how can you expect others to accept you?

Male to female transsexual talk (MTF) / Re: Donica's She Shed

Thanks Dee! Thankfully they use a anesthetic. I'm thinking if I can do 2 hours of HNT with minimal squirming, I should be able to do this. The whole process takes 1 and a half hours. Half of that time is spent waiting for the anesthetic to take affect.

Significant Others talk / She broke up with me...
« Last post by anon1256 on Today at 02:30:08 pm »
Long story short, my girlfriend (trans, mtf) and the love of my life, ended our 2.5 year relationship recently.

We got together before her transition, before she had even really figured out she was trans. It's been a rocky road for both of us, but I thought things were turning around. For the last half of this year, she was finally coming out to everyone, just moved out of her mom's house and now lives alone, just started HRT and began learning to express her true self.

I thought things were looking up, and I never would have expected us to break up. Never. We made many promises to each other. I love her and she loves me and we've shared a bond unlike any other I've felt in my life before. I always felt like the relationship was secure, like I could count on us staying together. I never expected this and I was completely blindsided. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this woman.

But one November night, she broke the news to me that she wanted to split. Her reasons were: she was too depressed to the point of being suicidal, she felt she couldn't make sense out of a lot of things, her role in the relationship was becoming confusing, she felt guilt for being trans or being who she was, and basically she needed to leave me to heal from mental illness and also to go off and discover who she really is as a person.

I'm devastated that she lied to me about her mental health for so long (had me thinking things were still rough sometimes, but mostly looking up) and that she thinks she has to be away from me in order to discover herself.

We were best friends and closer than ever. We did everything together, worked together on a lot of things, spent a ton of time together, laughed together, had so much fun and such a great connection to one another. Some of the best memories of my life are from our relationship.

The past was confusing, and I did have a lot of questions, but I was willing to leave it all behind us. I was excited about our future. I was excited about her changes and her growth. I was excited to help her on this journey. I truly love her with everything in me.

I struggle with mental illness too. But I thought I had overcome the worst of me. I was just so excited for the future.

I'm just so devastated. Every day I'm just... lost. I really need to hear stories from others this has happened to because no matter what kind of "heartbreak" advice I try to find online, nothing is specific to the trans experience or my experience. If anyone understands this situation at all, please chime in.

I'm 27 and she's 25 if that matters.

Teacher fired for refusing to use transgender student's pronouns

WEST POINT, Va. — A Virginia high school teacher who refused to use a transgender student’s new pronouns has been fired.  News outlets report that the West Point School Board voted unanimously Thursday to dismiss Peter Vlaming after a four-hour hearing that drew an overflow crowd. The school system said in a statement that Vlaming was fired for insubordination.

Over the summer, the ninth-grade student’s family informed the school system of the student’s gender transition to male. The student wasn’t involved in Thursday’s hearing.

Witnesses described a “slip-up” when the student was about to run into a wall and Vlaming told others to stop “her.” When discussing the incident with administrators, Vlaming made it clear he would not use male pronouns, a stance that led to his suspension referral for disciplinary action.

“I can’t think of a worse way to treat a child than what was happening,” said West Point High Principal Jonathan Hochman, who testified that he told Vlaming to use male pronouns in accordance with the student’s wishes.

Vlaming told superiors that his Christian faith prevented him from using male pronouns for the student. Vlaming said he had the student in class the year before when the student identified as female.

* * *

Nondiscrimination policies were updated a year ago to include protections for gender identity, but didn’t include guidance on gender pronoun use, according to Vlaming’s lawyer, Voyles, who notes Vlaming has constitutional rights.

“One of those rights that is not curtailed is to be free from being compelled to speak something that violates your conscience,” Voyles said.

Vlaming said he loves and respects all his students but when a solution he tried to reach based on “mutual tolerance” was rejected, he was at risk of losing his job for having views held by “most of the world for most of human history.”

“That is not tolerance,” Vlaming said. “That is coercion.”

Vlaming is considering a legal appeal, but said he wants to consult with his attorney before announcing further steps.

“I have to research how we would do that, what that would entail,” Vlaming said. “I do think it’s a serious question of First Amendment rights.”
