Counter-intuitive: Go Bulky to be Girly

Never too many or too bulky when it comes to bracelets!

Never too many or too bulky when it comes to bracelets and rings!

Young would-be Tgirls ask my advice all the time.  I’m happy to help.  It makes me feel good…except it also makes me feel old!

Often the questions are all about “passing.”  These questioners generally look like drag queens.  What gives them away, paradoxically, are their attempts to be ultra-femme.

But the sad fact is that dainty jewelry and long hair, for example, just accentuate the masculine.  The contrast is too sharp — drawing attention to rugged hands, thick neck, or whatever the very traits you’re trying so hard (too hard!) to disguise.

Only now, after countless facial feminization procedures, do I even dare to wear my hair long.  But there’s nothing I can do, alas, about my unfortunate hands, so lots of clunky bracelets and rings remain my preferred adornment.

    THE HANDS ARE A LITTLE THING. MY GRANDMOTHER AND GREAT AUNT HAD HANDS BIGGER THAN THERE HUSBANDS. THEY TOLD ME IT HELPED HOLD THINGS BETTER- THEN LAUGHED. IN THE 1930’S AND 40’S COUNTRY WOMEN HAD LARGE HANDS, PROBABLY DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF WORK THEY WERE EXPECTED TO DO. AS THE FEMALE RACE GOT MORE REFINED OVER THE YEARS, I GUESS THINGS EVOLVED SMALLER. PERSONALLY I PREFER A WOMAN WITH LARGE HANDS. TO ME THEY ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL.
