    Patty Keene — From Boy to Girl to. . . ?

    | Dec 15, 2014 | Comments (0)

    A 12 year old boy, small for his age, learned he gets more respect by posing and looking like a 16-17 year old girl. He did so well at it that he was able to pass as a girl to enter a co-ed boarding school. (See parts I and II of Patty’s Story) That is, he was able to pass until nature caught up with him. Forced to leave the school he didn’t know what would be coming next.

    You can always count on The Artist D to provide a counter viewpoint to almost anything in life. Today she lines up opposite the cheery, happy and bright universe to praise rainy days and dreary nights. But don’t assume it’s just doom and gloom.

    Recent changes in the military have given some hope that the estimated 15,000 plus trans soldiers will be able to serve openly in the near future. Is it reasonable to assume that since a few signs of progress have been seen that the services will quickly change their transgender policy? Babs Casbar Siperstein takes a look at the progress made.

    Dawn Benedict — CD Private Eye: Sherry Pops a Fuse

    | Dec 15, 2014 | Comments (0)

    Crossdressing detective Dawn Benedict was hired to investigate the murder of a woman in the restroom of a popular lesbian bar. The murder victim’s girlfriend hired Benedict since, as a crossdresser, she has a better chance of blending in with the bar’s clientele. In Chapter 2 Benedict started the investigation. Things didn’t go well. There was another murder — and Dawn was outed as a CD. In Chapter 3 Benedict found a suspect, of sorts. Will she survive Chapter 4 and catch the killer?

As a trans woman coming to femininity later in life there are plenty of things that Cate O’Malley is finding frustrating about her new femme lifestyle. Shoe shopping for male feet was simple.
