Aww. c: This is so sweet. Jocelyn, did you get any cards like this?
Jocelyn 19th Sep 2013, 11:53 PM edit delete reply

I did not. Not for transition anyway. For one birthday though (when I turned 22), a friend got me birthday card for a little girl's second birthday (with an extra 2 written in where necessary).

She did so because for one, it's funny. And two, I don't remember the exact wording, but it used a lot of cutesy, girly terms ("For the birthday girl", "for our princess on her birthday", etc). It was really sweet, and honestly, kind of the inspiration for Maria's card here.

I love your new profile pic. Especially the outfit your wearing >w< wish I had it. Though, I don't think I would be able to fill it out , chest wise ^^; I'm a cross dresser now. My bf introduced me to it and I liked it, so I went with it. I'm now officially a femboy ^^

Birthday cards from my dad's side of the family are the worst. I came out as atheist, so all of their cards included God in them, "God loves you!" and junk. I even got a terrible faux scientific book called "The Case For a Creator" once. It was really insensitive...

And then after coming out as trans, living full time, and moving into a new place and going stealth, they started sending "God bless you, grandson," cards, with all sorts of gender references. It was the most insensitive thing I had ever gotten. I'm glad I don't get cards from them anymore. I don't talk to that whole side of my family.

At least it made the good cards feel so much better.

What's in that box.... WHAT'S IN THE BOX!?

Hopefully this box is filled with something better. Maybe chocolate. Or a silly outfit for Puddle.

Also, new avatar pic. You look great :)

I wish I had that many close friends who "know" and supported me

Most of the support I got was in the form of Facebook likes and comments on statuses and photos about my transition. I got a remark from a random peep at the college that I was really brave and amazing for doing it, which seemed odd o_o But then about a year later someone asked me if I could give advice to a friend, who turned out to be that random peep from before. She was actually a transwoman very much trapped in the closet and unsure how to start transition. It's remarkable what an impact being out can have on other people :)

Inside the box is a box. And inside that box is another box. And another box inside of that. And in the last box is a toy from ages ago Gavin never returned.

I knew something was bothering me about this page.

All their signatures are identical! Although that could just be catholic school whipping their handwriting into shape.

If you find something
in a box
just wait patiently
and think carefully
and you just might figure out
what the darn thing is (what's the darn thing)

Years later, and (at target at least) you can buy a “congrats on coming out to me as trans” card,
