TPT#238 - Having A Voice Conversation Thing

11/18/2017
More
George’s health has been a challenge for some months now, but things are looking up. Which is good, because his insurance is changing, and it’d be a real challenge to adapt to new providers while still trying to manage that crisis. We are here to share our entire intersectional experience with anyone who finds it beneficial, but we want to know what you connect with the most.

TPT#237 - Manning

11/4/2017
More
No, not that Manning. We’re verbing nouns, like “adulting” and “friending”, and Ms. Manning is decidedly and intentionally not manning. George, on the other hand, totally is, and has reached that point of passing where everyone acknowledges that he is male, without consciously acknowledging anything at all. From children at a fair to colleagues at work, nobody bats an eye at treating him like “just some guy”. Which is kind of awesome. We are here to share our entire intersectional...

TPT#236 - After The Police Time, But The Next Time, Before The Last Time

10/21/2017
More
George has been responsible for ALL the people for some time now, elderly and juvenile alike, but Child#2 has really made extra cause for responsibility lately, and every Friday is have-a-fit day. Will he try to accuse us of abuse again? Will we be able to maintain our sanity while we help him grow out of this habit? Will he actually pull his processing out of his brainstem long enough to pull his head out of his ass? Your guess is as good as ours. We are here to share our entire...

TPT#235 - If You Want It, You Find A Way (Unlikely Activist Z, Pt. 2)

10/7/2017
More
In the second part of our conversation with our friend Z, he shares his experiences discovering more about his indigenous heritage, living in a multi-racial relationship, and coming to a broader understanding of faith. We discussed various topics related to racial justice, supporting oppressed minorities, colonialism and capitalism, and all sorts of other ways in which he, and we all, can be overcomers. Z recommends finding out more about, and if possible supporting, the following...

TPT#234 - A Private Journey (Unlikely Activist Z, Pt. 1)

9/23/2017
More
Our long-time friend Z is an FtM activist and long-time advocate for the trans community, the LGBTQIA+ faith community, and communities of color. He appears in the series America In Transition, currently in development. (You should go support this amazing project at americaintransition.org!) In our recent discussion, he recounts his path toward becoming an unlikely activist. Childhood trauma, military service, DADT, living with PTSD, and learning to trust his Spirit, all led him to become...

TPT#233 - Is It Because I’m Queer?

9/9/2017
More
Jess’ new job is amazing, so long as they don’t check their email. Entitled parents of entitled children are entitled, and it’s driving Jess a little bonkers. George is back to working full time too, and some of the ladies have noticed that he’s lost weight. But being sick for four months solid will do that to a person. We are here to share our entire intersectional experience with anyone who finds it beneficial, but we want to know what you connect with the most. You can let us know by...

TPT#232 - Standards Of Care

George has a respiratory infection, the kids are getting ready for back-to-school, and Child#2 decided he’d try to get out of trouble by getting Jess in trouble.

TPT#230 - The Lights Are On But Nobody’s Home

8/5/2017
More
George’s elderly aunt (who insists that she doesn’t have memory problems) has been claiming for months that “they’ll send me to the funny farm” for her behaviour. Eventually it became self-fulfilling prophecy. Add his neurotic sister, his elderly mother, and Child#2 into the mix, and George’s recovery and attempts to return to work aren’t going as smoothly as we’d hoped. But we should know better, by now, than to expect anything to ever go smoothly around here. Thankfully, passing as male...

TPT#229 - My P*nis Makes Me Smarter Than You

7/29/2017
More
We’ve annually chronicled Jess’ struggles to find a job that will get them out of elementary and back into working with older students. This year was another trip on the merry-go-round, with popcorn and dominoes thrown in for good measure. Will they escape kindergarten this year?

TPT#228 - Eight Dollar Man-Girdle

7/22/2017
More
George is still recovering from surgery, but the world doesn’t quit relying on him while he’s down. Child#2 is supposed to be visiting with his other mom, but we’re noticing a pattern in the failure rate of those visits. When it comes time to rescue the kid, everyone else is experiencing their own increased failure to function, so it’s on us to save the day again. We are here to share our entire intersectional experience with anyone who finds it beneficial, but we want to know what you...

TPT#227 - Little Plaid Dress

7/15/2017
More
There are many aspects of our relationship that are heterogenous. We are a mixed-faith couple, mixed-orientation, and we also come from different generations. Being raised in distinctly different times caused us distinctly different experiences with regards to technology, culture, and gender. Dysphoria was more distinctly gendered for George, in a time when everything was much more gendered, while Jess’ more flexible “modern” upbringing didn’t highlight the genderedness of their...

TPT#226 - Insect Carcasses

7/8/2017
More
George’s recovery is going as well as can be expected, when everyone still expects him to manage them. Child#2 is having an especially difficult time managing himself, and the other adults who have charge of him are getting a run for their money. From being suspended the last week of school, to breaking furniture, to pestering his other caregivers for his video game, he just can’t give any of us a break! We are here to share our entire intersectional experience with anyone who finds it...

TPT#224 - Go In There And Be Me (Cousin Vinnie Returns, Pt. 2)

6/24/2017
More
The intersection of lesbian parenting and multi-cultural family life, highlights Vinnie’s experiences with gender and discrimination, and we discuss how George’s transition has affected his parenting interactions. Returning to their experiences as a non-transitioning female-assigned person in a male-dominated field, Vinnie clarifies a few points and we all discuss our experiences of gender in the workplace. Rambly trans conversation continues! We are here to share our entire...

6/17/2017

Our first ever guest, from Ep#95 and Ep#96, has come back to visit! We mentioned, then, how their new car affected their frequency of traffic stops, but they have since observed the effect of various other drivers in their old truck. Following up on George and Jess’ discussion of health care challenges, Vinnie contribues their doctor experiences to our discussion. Then we return to a frequent discussion topic, sexism in the workplace. Long rambly conversation commence! We are here to...

TPT#222 - Awareness Of My Vulnerability

6/10/2017
More
As George recovers from his last hospital stay and prepares for his upcoming surgery, he recalls his concerns about his gender and how others will be affected by it. He also expresses a sense of “nakedness” from the lack of bodily self-determination. Then he realizes, all those types of discomfort are part of dysphoria! Jess also recalls experiencing dysphoria that they didn’t realize was dysphoria, although their dysphoria is often more social, while George’s was more physical. How do we...

TPT#221 - Flip-Off Dance

6/3/2017
More
When George’s intestines try to kill him, when Child#3 is a stinky hoarder, when Child#2 has bizarrely unrealistic expectations of us, it’s good to be able to use some coping humor. George’s ability to cope with strong emotion has increased over his time on HRT, although he still finds his patience has a tendency to disappear abruptly. We are here to share our entire intersectional experience with anyone who finds it beneficial, but we want to know what you connect with the most. You can...

In our final installment of George’s fourth manniversary reminiscings, we discuss some of the things that are better for George, now that he’s regularly percieved as the man he is. From men’s rooms and STPs, to clothes and how they fit, to the way he’s treated in our culture, life is better for him now than it’s ever been.

TPT#219 - The Royal “We” (4-Year Transition Retrospective, Pt. 2)

5/20/2017
More
Continuing our fourth manniversary trans-in-review, once George finally got HRT started, his body began changing. Once the changes became noticable, it was time to start coming out as male. Coming out to our kids and family was no problem. Working for the government, however, and especially in a small town, meant that nothing could be easy and especially not coming out.
