Very good, I thank you for the thoughtful considerations expressed. I am there/here. Soon to be 65. I pestered my Mother for a new dress to start kindergarten @ the age of 4. “Little BOYS can’t be little GIRLS!” she told me sternly, still rings in my ears. About the same time, because for a while I was quite insistent, Mom bellowed “WHAT!!, do you want be like Christine Jorgensen??” I had NO idea what THAT was like, but I remembered the name, and learned why, sometime in my teens. And like many transfolk of my vintage have said, we soon learned to never say anything about it again.
Being transgender never goes away. We learn to live with it, or not.

Just found this part 1 video Dara, and thank you for this information. I’m a man in my 60s and knew in the 50s that I wished I were born a girl. I like the 2 sets of guidelines you expressed, and have pretty much done that all my life, and know at this point in life will take her quietly to my grave. I’m resigned to the fact I’ll never transition like so many young ones are doing these days and I’m so jealous! My femme side comes and goes, like rhythmic patterns of denial and total submersion into crossdressing. No one knows my femme side. It’s a struggle but I cope. Looking forward to part 2.
