My parents were helping me move in to my apartment and I handed my mother my keys since I was going to be (trying, it didn't end up fitting through the door) moving a large heavy couch. The outside door locks automatically and she left the keys on my table. I had to buzz a neighbor I'd never even met and say I'd locked myself out. Never again shall I trust my mother with my keys!

I locked the keys in my mother on law's car immediately after passing my drivers licensing exam. Watching hubby (then fiancée) jimmy his way in in front of a licensing office was pretty funny.

CQ and Mars,
Thank you for being so open and generally informative about trans issues. I have learned so much from you two and the PPK at large in the last few years. You have opened my awareness in so many ways.
You are both amazing.
Puffy hearts and kitten kisses always,
<3 KK

Even though I know I won't hear anything until at least mid-March, I can't help but check my grad school application status every day. This can't be good for me.

I really hope she is an excellent read of personalities! It's great that it was ok with you, but if she reads someone wrong, that could really be disastrous.

I feel you. There are two separate groups of interviews for vet school - invitations go out in mid-March for one group, and mid-May for the other. And yet, I check my application every day.

The Mr's mother text him yesterday to say she thinks I'm "all round gorgeous", his eldest son feels he can identify with me (he's very artistic), his youngest son has decided he wants to makes vegan pancakes with me some day and his daughter has decided to search for vegan eggs to make this happen. I think I have successfully infiltrated the clan.

And the worst part of it is that they will surely be sending an email and letter, so it's not like I'm going to magically find an answer by incessantly checking!

I'm going to guess that the doctor read Mars' personality right or that they have the sort of relationship that allows for this sort of conversation. My OB/GYN makes hilarious jokes (often at the expense of the pharmaceutical industry). My first gyn was medical director of a Planned Parenthood. He used to tell me about some of the threats and protestors. He saw a population that include all sort of people including trans people. He was blunt and matter of fact. Someone who was soft and extra-sweet would have driven me insane.

What's appropriate depends on the people involved in the conversation.

Have fun doing something useful with your time :)

Fezza, that's great news. Must be a huge weight off your shoulders to be accepted by the clan.

*sigh* I really hate it when I feel the need to remind people on FB that just because they might not like the president or agree with him, it doesn't mean that it's okay to use racial slurs or to compare him to Hitler, since that's really offensive to a huge number of people, not just Obama. I really just need to de-friend some of these people that I used to go to high school with.

I haven't been on my desktop in so long - I forgot how much faster foruming is on an actual computer! I've gotten lazy, using my phone for everything.

Current conversation with my mom (yes, we're in the same house and talking on fb chat.):

Her (completely out of nowhere): you're the cream in my coffee, you're the salt in my soup. You will always be my necessity, I'ld be lost without you
Me: okay...
Her: WJDA played that song everyday. They also played a song before they did birth announcements but I can't remember it.
Me: okay, why are you telling me this?
Her: I don't know, just poipped into my head. I think I am being poisoned by gas down here. [She means my dad's dog has horrible farts today.]
poipped, i made a new word!
Me: omg. you're such a weirdo.
Her: say it, its fun! POIPPED, poipped, PoIpPeD!

I am telling you from my personal experience as a trangender person that health care professionals (and, just, people in general) feel free to say all kinds of outrageous things to transgender people that they would never think would be appropriate to say to cisgender people. I imagine it is possible that Mars's doctor just happens to be one of the ones who would normally never say something like that out of the context of correctly reading someone's personality or whatever, but frankly, that would be a pretty unlikely scenario. Not impossible, but unlikely. I would definitely not make the assumption that the doctor had some reason to believe it was appropriate to make such comments, other than that people just generally assume it's totally okay to say ridiculous things to transgender people.
