[ - ] Is it time to call a doctor for 8 yo DS's nosebleeds?? Is there a treatment for nosebleeds?? He's been getting them consistently for years, sometimes huge clots, other times just a regular nosebleed. Always from the same nostril (not both).A small tap on the nose at recess starts the blood flowing. It often wakes him at night. After trying to stop last night's nosebleed for almost 45 minutes in the middle of the night, enough is enough. Advice? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Go to dr, but it's probably nothing. My ds has been having nosebleeds since he was 2 (he's 7 now). They're less frequent, but they still happen sometime. Dr said he just has really delicate blood vessels at the tip of this nose, so if he messes with them, they can easily bleed. We used to put Vaseline in his nose before bed, and he has a humidifier in his room, which seems to help. If you go to an ENT, they can cauterize it. We had that done on ds when he was little and it lasted for a while, but the procedure was somewhat painful, so I wouldn't do it again. [ Reply | More ]

Although autogynephiles report longtime cross-dressing, nearly all of them will DENY, totally and forever, until the cows come home, that sexual kinks & thrills have ANYTHING to do with their “transition” to their “true feminine selves.” NO WAY MAN! It’s all about “gender identity”! A woman trapped in a man’s body! You must disregard my apparently happy and successful male life, forget about all those kids I fathered and the women I got pregnant, forget about my male childhood and many decades of male socialization, forget about my normal male reproductive system and other normal male secondary sex characteristics, forget about my XY chromosomes, forget about my utter disregard throughout my life for women’s rights or health or safety or well-being (and of course forget my efforts to harm women), forget about all of that stuff! No!!1!!1!! In reality I have always actually been a woman! I like the color pink! I have always enjoyed shopping! Imagine how I have suffered since I was “assigned male at birth” by evil doctors. And don’t you DARE suggest there is anything abnormal or kinky or erotic about me being a woman! I will DESTROY you if you even suggest such a thing! I’m a completely normal woman, and quite a good-looking one at that! You had better not “mis-gender” me either, or I’ll kick your ass and then sue you! [ Reply | More ]

That's a small subset of male-to-female transgenders--those that exhibit feminine behaviors/mannerisms/desires since early childhood and they are typically homosexual. I'm talking about the Bruce Jenner types--heterosexual, straight-acting, with histories of marriage and children, in typically "male" type jobs. With these men, “female gender identity” only develops in these men after many years or decades of sexualized cross-dressing. [ Reply | More ]

I am 58 years old and a preoperative MtF transsexual. I began crossdressing when I was about age 7. I was especially sexually aroused wearing girdles and nylon stockings. By my mid-20s, I had very strong desires to dress as a female on a full-time basis and to attract attention as a sexy, feminine woman. I have worn sexy feminine fashions, especially bras, lingerie, pantyhose, short dresses, lace fashions, mini-skirts, high heels, etc., at home since my mid-20s. Wearing sexy lingerie, a bra, a girdle with nylon stockings or sensuous sheer pantyhose, and high heels, imagining myself as a female, still often sexually arouses me, leading to an erection, masturbation, and orgasm. I am a transgender woman currently undergoing estrogen treatment. The fact that my body is feminizing is both a source of arousal and joy. My earlier “closet” phase involved the ritual of dressing as a normal woman: lingerie, nylons, dresses, shoes, etc., and applying full makeup and perfume and becoming so turned-on by my femme image in the mirror that the ritual often terminated in masturbation. I began cross-dressing shortly after puberty in my older sister’s clothes. Later, I would occasionally borrow one of my wife’s dresses when she was out of town. I would always fantasize about women and assuming the role myself when dressed. And it was always an erotic experience. I have come to realize that for me, being a cross-dresser has not merely been the activity of a transvestite, but of a transsexual. The clothes themselves are but an adornment that allow me to take on the intended role. Just as “clothes make the man,” I feel they make the woman as well. A skirt or dress, because of its very construction, makes a woman vulnerable, which is a female attribute. Wearing women’s clothing and feminizing my body has always been sexually exciting for me. Also, it was and still is sexually exciting for me to have female body functions. Before my sex reassignment surgery, I would pretend to menstruate by urinating in sanitary pads. I particularly enjoyed wearing the old-fashioned belted pads with long tabs. [ Reply | More ]

A huge amount of evidence shows that most male transgenderists get a sexual thrill out of dressing up, out of being “perceived as a woman,” out of using women’s toilet facilities, out of replicating every kind of “feminine” stereotype and then insisting that everyone else play along. But they are deadly embarrassed to admit it! Only in RARE cases will they ever admit it. [ Reply | More ]

The “natural history” (if I may call it that) of autogynephilia’s course bears strong similarities to that of drug addiction, from “just once” to the eventual ravaged body. At first, it is relaxing and feels good. Soon, simply cross-dressing + masturbation secretly at home is no longer enough, he must now go shopping while cross-dressed. He must now try to get his wife or girlfriend involved with his fantasies. He must leave his family behind to follow his transgender destiny. He must keep experimenting and pushing limits and finally decide he is a transsexual and needs unnecessary and dangerous major surgery, and absolutely must must must obtain a fake vagina and fake breasts and maybe even “facial feminization surgery” through massive medical manipulations. He must now viciously and violently attack any woman who suggests that he is not actually a woman, in addition to any other vicious and violent attacks he may be making on women. Over time, the simple pleasures no longer suffice. Everything must be taken past limits that previously seemed extreme. [ Reply | More ]

I would cut her out of my life and my children's lives without a second thought, and let my DH explain why. Literally - I would make plans to leave the house with my dcs whenever she came over, and would not agree to go anywhere she was planning to be. I find her behavior completely, 100% unacceptable and would not tolerate someone like that in my life. [ Reply | More ]

If she has all her faculties, the "she's old" excuse doesn't fly. Nobody is allowed to make my children feel badly about who they are, especially their grandmother. Fuck that bitch. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Really interesting article on one of the ideas for SHSAT. Admitting top 10% from every middle school. I think it could work if you tesrved seats for the top 5% from all middle schools who score in a certain range.... Something like that. Here is link to what happened when UT did something similar. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/05/18/magazine/who-gets-to-graduate.html?referrer= 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

How would this work for Nest and Anderson kids? For those schools, the top 30-40% might be equivalent to the top 10% at a general ed middle school. [ Reply | More ]

Nooooo. Defeats the purpose. This would not be used to fill ALL the SHS seats. Just some. They used to have a program where if you were close to cutoff and disadvantaged, you could take a summer course, test again and get a seat. I like that. [ Reply | More ]

I think as long as you don't look inappropriate, it's fine. i have a pair of nicer bermuda length shorts that i wear around the city with a nice top and sandals and i'm 45. not sure what you consider average, i'm tall and slim, but not super skinny or anything. [ Reply | More ]

If you're just lounging around the park or at the playground or going for a walk with your husband, I am completely on your side. But if you're trying to put together an "outfit" for the day, then wear a skirt if it's too hot to manage pants or capri-length/ bermuda-length [ Reply | More ]

Is the cellulite visible when you sit down and cross your legs? If not, you're fine. Think about "older" movie stars and the like and whether you would think any of them should stop wearing shorts. Demi Moore, for example, will be wearing shorts until she is 60 [ Reply | More ]

OK. Demi Moore was a poor example but I was trying to ask what you mean by "regular". Coming up with an appropriate public figure to compare to is tricky. Hence the cellulite question. In any event, I suppose that's my answer. Visible puckering is a don't. Not looking like Kelly Rippa is completely fine. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My theory is that for MC and UMC, the SAH decision breaks down along age levels. If you have your first in late twenties - mid thirties, you probably didn't make enough to make it feasible. But for those who had DC later, by choice or not, may have been pulling down good money at not so stressful jobs. Exclude biglaw and finance here. How much $ were you earning and how old were you when you made this choice? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm a SAHM (maybe not technically since I am a doctoral student, but it's a 6-year clinical program with a 2-year post-doc, so I'm not making any money for a long time) and I was 25yo when #1 was born, 27yo with #2 and 30yo with #3. Income was $150K with #1, $250K with #2 and $600K with #3. I will start working in one year. I have always felt that we were UMC. We live in Seattle, but we lived in NYC when #1 and #2 were born. Left when #2 was 3yo. [ Reply | More ]
