We celebrate Thanksgiving Day on Thursday.

"Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general," according to Wikipedia.

No harvest here, so I guess I express “gratitude in general.”

Mother and Father are deceased, but I know that they are around in a spirit-in-the-sky kind of way, so I want to thank them for raising a beautiful daughter and not interfering with my feminine ways when I was growing up.

Maybe they could have been a little more encouraging by buying me some dresses to wear around the house (so I wouldn’t have to borrow my sister’s) and buying me some dolls of my very own (so I wouldn’t have to borrow my sister’s). It probably would have made my sister happy, too; I wouldn’t be borrowing her stuff and she would have had a sister to play with.

On the other hand, it could have been a lot worse and they could have forced me to be masculine!

So, thank you Mom and Pop for letting me be me.


  1. What wonderful parents. Truly something to be thankful for. Mine....well let's just say they were just the opposite.

    I'm so sorry to hear that both of them are gone.

  2. Calie --- They were very good to us and I miss them a lot.

    BTW, it is scary how much I resemble my Mother when I am en femme.

  3. There is nothing wrong with boys playing with dolls as well as girls playing with trucks. Dressses are for either gender, although boys need to be taught how to wear them properly so as not to exposed their undergarments. The same being for skirts.
