A podcast about gender, identity, orientation, and all the life that happens around them! George is an FtM transgender man, Jess is his pansexual genderqueer wife; they talk parenting, work, and such.

That new dick we mentioned a couple weeks back? Yeah, George tried it. Medical adhesive mishaps and prosthetic penis shenanigans ensued. Fun was had. And by fun, we mean awkwardness and discomfort.

TPT#209 - Old Man Swears

Child#2's other mom has asked for him to move with her out of state, and we have no good reason to refuse. But the adventures of raising our most challenging child don't stop just because he's a couple hundred miles away. George went to visit him back before we went to Gallifrey One, and we recap the challenges up to the time he returned, from dealing with controlling ex-in-laws, to informing the kids of the recent death in our chosen family.

Various versions of the Family Circle comic "map" George refers to can be found at http://familycircus.com/comic_tag/billys-map/.

George's old-guy problems haven't quit, although we get more gendery observations on them. He observes the self-segregation of people by gender, considering his place in one of the two groups that folks tend to segregate themselves into. People who've known George for a long time, but haven't seen him in a while, react to the "effectiveness" of his transition. We consider the struggles of dressing formally by gender. 

Oh, and did we mention that George got a new dick? Sooner or later we'll figure out how to attach it!

In case you missed it on our social media, we attended Gallifrey One again this year. After the usual three-ring-circus known as "the logistics of leaving our responsibilities behind", we brought pronoun ribbons (pronounribbons.org) and were lucky enough to find some folks to pass them out on our behalf. Then we went on about our merry con-going, to encounter various awkward situations, and as most transfolk have occasion to do, George overthinks the difference between gendery awkwardness and regular awkwardness.

At the time of recording, George was supposed to be preparing to visit Child#2 at his mother's house, out of state. But emergency rooms kept happening. Thankfully, not for him this time. We consider, for a moment, the oddities of being treated as male in these situations, how it is different from his prior treatment, and then return to managing the situations.

TPT#205 - Old Guy Problems

George's body has seemed to age a little more rapidly in the past few years, and while we're not sure whether that's a result of HRT, or stress, or environment, or a little of each, the result is the same. He weighs less, but his pants are tighter. His back and neck pain have increased. And the process of finding a mattress that will better support his aging back has been a long one.

We attended the women's march solidarity event for our region, and it was pretty cool. George is a feminist, a TransDad, and a man who was perceived as female for decades, all of which make him a heck of a feminist father. But how to act on that feminism? How does one act as an ally and accomplice in movements for the rights of the oppressed, when one is a member of the dominant (and historically oppressive) culture?

George's insurance plan rolled over at the new year, and he needed to re-authorize a prescription. Child#2's prescriptions may not be covered for some time until his new insurance is effective in his new state. And Republicans in congress don't care who gets insurance or not, so long as they get to enforce their expectations and worldview. But no matter what is wrong, we know that some woman, somewhere, will be competent to take care of it.

We continue our conversation with the Gender Rebels this week, Kath and Faith discuss their experiences travelling before and after transition, and we observe the nature of the transition workload. So many things to do, and it's great that they all get to happen, but damn, it's a lot of work!

♪♫ On the adjusted date of Christmas, the universe gave to me: twelve-hour workdays, eight forgotten presents, five diabetic crashes, two cases of norovirus, and a sex toy infomercial at the hospital! ♪♫  

As usual, we celebrated Christmas on a day that was not 25 December, but as not-usual it went fairly smoothly. The fun didn't start until later, but when it did, George's status as male made his mother's care easier to manage, and his trans status made his own hospital visit slightly more confusing.

TPT#199 - Chosen Family

When Child#2 was adopted by George and his ex-wife, they had no clue just how uniquely challenging he would become. We are now preparing for him to move out of state with her, with hope for his improved wellbeing as well as for our sanity. Recordkeeping and other issues could arise, however, when George is still listed on the kid's birth certificate as his mother, and his actual mother isn't listed at all!

TPT#198 - Shoes To Throw

Can we find a home for the surprise dogs? Will George's birthday combine with Child#3's birthday well? Will Child#0 come to live with us? Is George irritable because of decreased testosterone? Holiday JOY for the whole freaking family abounds, but we don't get to have our holidays yet.

Christmas giraffes and flamingoes and dinosaurs are a perfect wrap-up for this bizarre year.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we have birthdays and other to-do's that are unavoidable. The holiday dinner was nice, and comparatively quiet, but the string of gatherings started to pinch George's introvert sensibilities beyond managing, bringing us back to the questions about the effects of HRT on his emotional restraint.

TPT#194 - Libra Moon

The election results and the changing dynamic among the bigot class have made the world a scarier place, but life keeps chugging along. George is sick, but that doesn't keep him from being responsible for his elderly relatives, who have new adventures with recurring themes.

It's okay to like things, to dislike things, to like or dislike people, even to have opinions on things or people. But to paraphrase a recent viral tweet, "Opinions are for things like 'I dislike coffee', not 'I dislike black people'." It is generally frowned frowned upon, and for good reason, to dislike people, for certain traits that have been historically used to justify their disenfranchisement. One would break Wheaton's Law to do so. So when we happen to dislike the company of some transgender persons, for reasons not directly related, but possibly tangentially related, to their trans-ness, how does one avoid dickishness? 

To even identify traits related to mental health, education, or childlessness, seems judgemental because of the cultural connotations of these characteristics. George has professional skill in how to distance oneself from judgement regarding these concepts, but Jess can't shake the feeling of being the bigger or more advantaged sibling, pointing a finger at their smaller sibling, obnoxiously in their personal space, almost-but-not-quite-touching, saying "I'm not judging you! I'm not judging you! I'm not judging you!"

TPT#191 - Incredulous

We continue discussing ALL THE THINGS that are kicking George's butt lately, between finding out who ate the cake, and taking the elders to vote, and continuing his game of "which doctor does mom think we're visiting today", he still feels more than a bit overwhelmed. Which has made him more than a bit irritable. And we still haven't settled on why he is more irritable lately, but there's likely some relation to HRT.

It is a common experience among those experiencing medical transition, that HRT can reorient one's emotions and expression of them. George has felt overwhelmed lately, and as many trans guys have mentioned many times before, "I can't cry about it." There's nothing particular to cry about, though, just a lot of little busy things that are each, on their own, only somewhat bothersome. When we put them all together, though, ALL THE THINGS become a bit much.

Why do men and women give Jess different change when they are sent to retrieve Jess' lunch from the taco truck? And why on earth would Jess plagiarize a failing term paper?

Our kids' lives are hard. Admittedly they don't have to deal with a lot of problems that children in poverty or trauma survivors experience, but they have their own unique challenges, and it's our job to help them find the adaptability and resiliency to manage themselves before becoming adults. Occasionally, though, we just feel like our Child#2 when he says "I don't wanna!"

After decades of living in a female presentation, there are a lot of ways in which George identifies with feminism and feels solidarity with women's causes. We discuss the understanding that many FtMs have of the struggles of female existence, the privilege men have, and the ways in which these causes should be championed in social and political venues.

TPT#184 - The Man In The Room

As one ages, one generally develops various health problems. George's mother and aunt are both suffering from age-related ailments, which both of them will alternately bemoan or deny. George helps them nonetheless, as he is a total sucker, um, we mean, he is just that good of a person. As they deal with doctors and other medical professionals, how the medics deal with him is very different from the way they deal with the old ladies. How much of that is because of the "old" part, and how much is because of the "ladies" part? George has some male privilege thoughts on that, and on being the random white guy in the convenience store at 2AM.

When George was a baby dyke getting catcalled or even occasionally hollering at girls, it was a completely different experience than anything that would ever happen now. There are some behaviours that are really only acceptable in a homosocial context. An interaction between members of similar genders or gender experiences can contain a subtext of common experience, but cross-gender interactions often exist in an expansive context of patriarchy, historical oppression, and cultural expectations that can make otherwise innocuous comments seem inappropriate.

When an old (pre-transition) picture of George resurfaces at work, what will his new intern think? Will she even notice? Will she recognize him? And what on earth were his bosses thinking in even bringing it to the intern's attention?!

As we finish the discussion of our trip to Yosemite, we have a discussion with Jess' aunt, the one who asked which child George birthed, about Child#2's adoption and her own adoption of one of her four kids. Then continuing with our challenging children through a poopy train ride, repeated swim breaks, and George's discomfort over using an STP in the most crowded bathroom in the middle of nowhere with the dick patrol in tow.

In the first half of our discussion of our family's trip to Yosemite, we discuss George's adaptations to a lower dose of T and how that's affected his emotions as he deals with the stresses of a family vacation. Our children's challenges didn't get left behind, and managing them in places that aren't "home" present a completely unique set of challenges, in addition to the challenges of meeting up with family when wireless coverage is spotty in a national park.

George recently got a male privilege upgrade. Gender discrepancies in pay and treatment at work are well documented, but transgender folks often have unique insights after experiencing cultural expectations in different gender presentations. We discuss how George's colleagues, including some who have known him for over a decade, treat him differently now. Jess is jealous, but gets to rib him about his moustache, or lack thereof, so life is okay. 

The monkey with a moustache that we found looked something like [this], and the human monkeytail moustache looks something like [this].

TPT#176 - Donut Holes

Health care and insurance can be troubling. Thankfully we have good coverage, as does George's mom, but that doesn't mean it's always easy to access that coverage, or that they won't get confused when some guy needs to visit the gynecologist. Even better, when George is managing insurance troubles for himself and his mother, he is stuck making calls during the work day so his cubicle-neighbor gets to hear the very specific details about which antidepressant he takes.

As we did the survey from last week's episode, it made us think about the balance of chores and household labor in our home and how that is different from more typically heteronormative couples. Jess also learned, and was mildly concerned by, the fact that George's happiness dial only has one click above average. George has embraced his inner Eeyore, however, and is more content with his life now, than he has ever been, even with the dick patrol running around.

George never learned how to fish as a kid. Maybe because he didn't like fish, maybe because the elder males didn't want to teach a little girl how, maybe because he was a little kid and didn't like the whole sitting-and-waiting-for-a-bite thing. Either way, taking our kids fishing has been a gender-enlightening experience, as random guys are just cool interacting with another random guy, and as we reflect on how parenting and transition affect one another.

The kids were driving George batty. Child#1 is sneaky, Child#2 is angry, and Child#3 is whiny. Jess gets preachy, Bob-the-dog is smelly, we just need one more dwarf for a full set... Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the bothered-est of them all?

TPT#172 - Skirt PTSD

George is mostly-stealth at work. And by mostly-stealth, we mean about half the office remembers his transition, but everyone's fairly insular, so nobody talks much, and new colleagues generally have no clue that he is trans. Gender is, nonetheless, an integral part of one's professional presentation at work, for both of us.

Only in the trans community do we verb our pronouns... "They 'she'd me!" George has gotten 'she'd at least four times in the past month. But overall, in most settings, George is just a guy. Which is kind of awesome.

We do our best to be responsible. Lots of people we interact with either never learned how be responsible, forgot how to be responsible, or just choose not to be responsible. We want the world to be a better place, so we do our best to help those we care for, whether it's raising children or supporting elders. But can SuperTransDad save the world and his own sanity?

TPT#168 - FacePalm

The family and friends we visited during the funeral and surrounding weekend were quite enjoyable company. The folks we left behind, however, insisted on continuing to cause us trouble while we were gone. We back up to last week's story and tie up some loose ends, and continue the tale of the trip to Michigan.

As we've been discussing preparations for, we finally got to Michigan for the funeral. Regardless of over-planning everything, Murphy's Law takes over when it can. From difficulties with overnight flights and hotels that weren't really ready to be open yet, to all the responsibilities that we *tried* to leave behind, to Jess' caffeine addiction and driving past the graveyard, nothing can ever be easy... Except maybe Jess' conservative family?

As we prepare to visit Jess' family, some of whom are rather conservative, we have a discussion about conversational frameworks in which he would prefer Jess discuss or answer questions regarding his transition. He has also felt increased social and physical dysphoria lately, comparing his own physical presence to that of other (presumably cisgender) males.

We have a funeral to attend halfway across the country, mostly to see Jess' family but also because there's a dead guy. Which means making arrangements for our responsibilities to be managed in our absence. But when Kid#2 just had his meds changed, Jess is staring teacher-transfer season in the face, and our pre-arranged childcare falls through, it's never easy. Ever.

Spring break happened. Child#2's teachers wanted to schedule a meeting ASAP before it did, and we were mildly concerned that it might be a problem, but it turned out to be mostly mundane. Which is good, because things are rarely, if ever, mundane with this kid. George took him on a vacation to visit family while Jess caught up on school work, and hijinks followed as usual. 

(And the song is "Smooth Criminal".)

Last week we heard the beginning of a really difficult story, about how our friend became a homeless transgender spoonie. This week we discuss her continuing struggles, and how to maintain hope in the midst of a struggle for rights, for support, and often even for survival. 

Tasteless and occasionally very adult-oriented coping humour abounds, especially in the outtakes after, so be forewarned, we are horrible people who laugh at horrible things.

We've mentioned our tall friend a few times over the run of this show. We finally got to sit down and talk with her at a microphone, which we've been trying to schedule for a while. But scheduling is tough when you're homeless, which is often a result of transitioning. Not only is she homeless, she also struggles with chronic pain resulting from a hit-and-run. This week we'll hear the start of her narrative, and you'll have to tune in next week to hear the rest of the homeless transgender spoonie story.
