Sophie Can't Dance

Well, I *can*, but it is spastic, uncoordinated, and dangerous to those in proximity.

I've been a lurker for a while, but decided it was time to make an account. I am terrible at introductions, but here goes:

My name is Sophie, I live in Montréal. Still presenting male in public (at least until the gender clinic gives me an appointment). I started coming out to people about five months ago now, though only to a very small group of people.

I suppose I just wanted to say hello to everyone, and how great everyone here seems to be.

Much love!

Oh Sophie!

I can dance, oh yes, but just keep me off the wine if I'm anywhere near the dance floor else I would rival your arms and legs going everywhere.... btw welcome to the boards! Oh and I'm told I run funnily, but of course I don't think so, just glad I can run, play golf, dance and still steal the occasional glance from men at 57. Celia xx

Sophie, welcome to the board. Since we don't use Skype, dancing ability is not a requirement.

YOU ARE NOT 57. Why do you continue to try to fool us. We have our eyes (such as they are) on you as you continue with your dis-information about your age.

Sheeeesh!

Oh Miki, I know you are being kind.... If only I were NOT 57!

It was a surprise to see that was you age, I thought around 40ish. But then again I thought the lady next door to me was late 50, turns out I was 20 years out but not in a good ! Hate the guess my age some people play. It's abit like offering your train seat, to a pregent person, then find out that there not and the embarrassing silence afterwards.

doubt it's as bad as your textualization paints

SophieCantDance wrote:I am terrible at introductions

no you weren't. if you covered even a normal introduction-y point or 2, one can't honestly label that terrible. you covered more, and were more than adequate in your delivery as well

SophieCantDance wrote:Still presenting male in public (at least until the gender clinic gives me an appointment)

this is a limitation you place on yourself. i am intimately familiar with this limitation, which still largely exists in my experience to this day

SophieCantDance wrote:...and how great everyone here seems to be

you flatter us. well, me indirectly at least. it's simply not true, and i'm sure others could attest to it should they see this and were honest with themselves. we've MUCH chaos to show you in our hallowed halls of gut-wrenching pain & anguish...

...too

@dreamin

I know it is a self imposed limitation. It is one designed to avoid the inevitable question of "have you seen a medical professional" when I come out to my family. Personally, I know that I don't need an hour long conversation with a stranger to validate what I have felt for my whole life. However my family is very closed-minded, and having check the box (as it were) will at least allow me to avoid being told that I don't know what I am talking about, and that if I see a psychiatrist they will "set me straight".

yeah family can certainly throw a kink into an otherwise straightforward thing

my condolences..

Celia looks so young because she’s full of joy and gratitude. I try and remember what wonderful elixirs they are and C is a helpful reminder :)
