If I've helped to spark any one person's thought about not looking down on people who choose to play in a little more clothing than others, yay.
    Understood and hopefully we can all get over ourselves and take people for what they are not what we think they should be (for whatever reason) [/QUOTE]

Got my hormones checked and while I'm not high T, I was low in estrogen ... very low. It's interesting to ponder....snipped.
    I'll pass this and other posts along to the wife. It might help set her mind at ease.

    • What I've found as my hormones have gotten in order, and also as I've gotten to know more women who are feminine without the stereotypical downsides of being a woman (moodiness, shallowness, gossipy, obsessed with shopping & appearance, etc.), I see a lot of changes, both chosen and not chosen.
      I think you have to pull out shopping and appearance. I love doing my hair, make up, shopping- looking my best. I don't think that is a downside- for me (and a lot of women) its FUN. Just because I love finding a cute dress and heels and getting my blonde shade of hair just right doesn't mean I'm a slave to it... and doesn't mean I judge others who don't make that choice. I feel good about myself and that's one way I treat myself.

      I totally respect people who prefer not to spend their time and money on hair and makeup! We are all different people.

      I hate shallow gossips too.... but you know, some of the least appearance oriented women I know are some of the biggest unaccepting gossips. I went to grad school with a woman who was well... rough in appearance and she was so nasty about people who had kids, people who went to church, people who ate regular food (she was a vegan)..... she was worse than "Housewife of Beverly Hills".....

      • No, I didn't say "enjoy shopping and appearance," I said obsessed with it.

        So I totally agree with you.

          it didn't happen that way, my hormones and personality dictate otherwise
          I tried to be girly... for a long time.
          I managed tom-boy pretty well... girly always felt like a costume.
          I grew up in a very small town where feminine and hetero were the basic and culturally enforced expectation for every person bearing a vagina.
          Pffffftttttttttt.

          I stopped trying to be girly at all over the last 10 years...
          I am still a soft tom-boyish girl...
          Light makeup... always lip gloss (ADDICT) but not strong colors, and never lipstick.
          NO skirts, NO heels, and NO frilly feminine things or florals.
          I wear jeans/pants/slacks and t-shirts (button downs when necessary), occasionally a sweater but it's pretty gender neutral.
          And I've been known to shop in the mens dept.

          We should all do our own thing.
          What makes us happy and comfortable.
          And respect that in others.

          • In the Tragic CW Moments department, I just found out more on the father whose funeral I've been asked to sing at tomorrow. He was found dead on the treadmill.

            I imagine that low-fat, high-whole-grain, chronic cardio, & statins were all a part of the regimen his doctor gave him in the year preceding this tragedy.

            It's so heart-breaking.

            • One of my favorite book quotes: "If she likes it, then it's feminine." This "she" in question had a bad habit of stealing her father's shirts and wearing them with overalls. Far more practical for spell casting

              One of my friends was pushing me toward the makeup/hairdye/heels thing for a while. I'm rolling back towards jeans and T-shirts, but I am trying to limit the ones that I stole from my brothers When I dress up, I dress up. Otherwise, meh, whatever.

                • Well I seem to be in good company here - my son is uncircumsized (I figure if your born with it, you probably need it for something) but seems to be the only guy I've ever seen intact (Moms see a lot of little dude's too - they aren't shy about peeing on trees, etc outside - not to mention diapers). I hate florals and have also been known to shop the men's dept when the women's was just not what I was in the mood for. I too tried the weak girly thing when I was younger as it seemed to work so well for others. Nobody bought it and it really pissed my brothers off when I claimed to be "too weak" to do some work. I would much rather have a body and mind that can conquer anything!

                    Eat whole grains for breakfast.

                    • LOL, I always hated the overwhelming majority of flora prints, too. But I love long skirts. I'm very hippie at heart.

                      A lot of my friends' children are intact, too, but they're mostly in the same category as I am - hippie Catholic homeschoolers. My sisters both left their boys intact, without me pressuring them to at all, which was a pleasant surprise.


                      The end of my seriously "Funny CW" life was when I started to realize my body didn't love grains, and I went searching for info on what were the benefits of whole grains. I. could. not. find. any. Nowhere. Everything I found was talking about how superior whole grains are ... to refined grains.

                          I've gotten comments about my belly being too big, my boobs being too small and a number of other snide remarks aboout my body. I've never been turned down for The Bits not being up to par. I think most guys figure if it exists, it's good enough.

                          • I love long skirts too, but tend to only wear them to dress up. I have to admit that I'm definitely a hippie at heart, being a child of the 60's and all. I think I outed myself this week though since I put some very PURPLE streaks in my hair! We appear to be a very conservative family to most on the outside, but I gotta admit I've got quite a bit of crazy at heart.

                            • Lifecoach: Low blood sugar level symptoms - Telegraph
                              Someone writes to the expert:

                              "I have been through the diabetic checklist online and I don’t think I am diabetic. However, from time to time I get light-headed and shaky, and desperately need food. This often happens midmorning even if I have eaten a big bowl of bran flakes for breakfast. Any suggestions?"
                              Chorus from MDA forum: Wow, even after bran flakes for breakfast? Imagine that!

                              The 'expert':
                              "In cases of mild hypoglycaemia, the symptoms should stop as soon as you eat or drink – the best choice is something that is easily digested and high in simple sugars or carbohydrates such as a glass of fruit juice or a biscuit. In terms of prevention, try to eat small meals and snacks every three hours. A diet rich in fruit and vegetables, whole grain foods and legumes is recommended. Usually foods that are high in fibre, such as bran flakes, are a good choice as they are absorbed slowly and help maintain a constant blood glucose level. But if you’re experiencing symptoms midmorning, a lighter breakfast and midmorning snack (a banana or whole-grain crackers and cheese) might be better."
                              Suggestion to Mark: run adverts for new, extra-strong desks.

                                See, the only experience I can call upon is my friend from high school whose parents left him intact, then decided after he was about 9 or 10 to change their mind (consulted him or he consulted them or something, I didn't know about until jr. high or so)...so that's good that HE made that decision, but oh man, either way, stick with your decisions. He's still (mentally) scarred about it.
                                If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
