Three Things

Dear Stana , It's really not appropriate to post pictures of Real Beautiful Women Models , I would recommend Only pictures of femulators . The real pictures of real femulators help me to question and resist my long term transfeminine wishes , like when I go to large crossdressing online sites it Greatly helps me to run from crossdressing .

I have been sitting on the above comment for a couple of weeks, undecided whether to approve it or delete it. Unsure what to do with it, I decided to post it here for your interest.

👠 👠 👠 

I am visiting my doctor today. I think my problem is arthritis. Whatever it is has put the kibosh on wearing high heels out among the civilians. I hope my doctor can help me.

Funny thing: in the previous paragraph, I mistyped “high heels” and it came out “high hells.” (Ain’t that the truth!)

👠 👠 👠 

Last Femulate reader whose photo I posted in the Femulator slot, worried that she was too late submitting her photo (as if there was a deadline). There was no deadline and I continue to welcome photos of Femulate readers, whose photos have not appeared here recently.

Just a couple of rules: 

1. Make sure your photo is ladylike, so nothing pornographic and nothing with too much skin showing.

2. Send me one photo – the photo you consider your best. If you send more than one photo, I will have to choose which one to publish and you may not like my choice.

3. Indicate how you want your name to appear in the caption: first and last name, just your first name, no name, whatever. 

4. If you are out and about in the photo, indicate what you are doing (e.g., “shopping at Macy’s,” “dining at the White House,” etc.). 

5. If you have a blog or website, include its URL and I will mention it in the caption.

  1. In response to the comment about not posting models,

    I have enjoyed reading Femulate for years, it has grown, and become one of the best and most popular transgender blogs on the web.

    This has been due to oversight of Stana in choosing content and editing.

    I have had the honor of writing and contributing to Femulate.

    I trust her judgement

    So whenever I do submit content I include the following


    "Respectfully Submitted for your review"

  2. Of COURSE it is appropriate to post pictures of beautiful cis women. You can't hit the target if you can't see it. Look, beautiful women are amazing. If you look on the cover of a men's magazine, what do you see? Beautiful women. If you look on the cover of a women's magazine, what do you see? Beautiful women.

    As for the commenter, it sounds like they're saying, "I need pictures of ugly, non-passing femulators to help me resist my urge to transition." Sorry, toots. sounds like you have some stuff to work out.

  3. 1) Rather interesting comment -- not sure how to respond to it either. If the person wants to avoid cross dressing, then why are they reading your blog?
    2) Recent outings in heels (even KITTEN heels) usually end with leg and foot cramps after I change back into flats. Does this mean no more heels for this gal? Heaven Forbid! (giggle)
    3) Thank you for posting Reader Photos. Especially thanks for posting the link to my blog - reader numbers have gone up since you shared my pic.

  4. Hmmm. As to your first point ... I am a cis-gender female who is not model-beautiful. I still like looking at pictures of pretty people, even if I do not fit that category.
    Each of us has his/her own preference for what we choose to look at, or read, or listen to. I do not always agree with what I see or hear. If I find myself violently opposed to the content, I turn it off, or close the book (or tear it up into little bits and burn it).
    No matter your gender, or your preference for wearing clothing most closely associated with one gender or another, it is helpful to study images of all sorts of human beings wearing all sorts of clothing, in many "normal" situations. If I find someone whose fashion sense and body shape are similar to my own, I'll emulate them, in the hope that I appear acceptable to people who look at me in MY daily life. I don't care what lurks inside their underwear.

    Good Lord, that was wordy. My apologies.

  5. It is most certainly appropriate to post pictures of beautiful cis women - if only as an example. After all, you can't hit a target you can't see. Women are beautiful. If you look at a men's magazine, what do you see on the cover? A beautiful woman. If you look at a women's magazine, what do you see on the cover? A beautiful woman.

    I think the original poster seems to think that femulators are ugly, not convincing, etc. and that "helps" them keep running from the truth. Sorry, girl. You can run, but you can't hide. :)

  7. I can see why you sat on that comment because this poster is nothing but a troll trying to stir up the proverbial you-know-what. Trolls are not empowered when they are ignored.

  9. When my right foot "fell apart" and required major surgery, I knew my days in heels were officially doomed. The foot problem had already pushed me out of my heels but I held out hope for a miracle fix. After all, I was in the hands of the best foot orthopod on the east coast. Well, that didn't pan out and after 19 pieces of metal in my foot I had to say goodbye to wearing heels.

    I went into a grieving period, seriously! I loved trooping around in my 3-4" heels. I really felt so feminine. I didn't go out for a good while, but Mikki couldn't stand being cooped up so I went shopping for nice flats. I found some nice sandals and a few very nice flats from Clark's. With some experimenting I found I could elevate my foot about 1 1/2 inches -- but only with those humongous big heels. But I managed to exhume Mikki and now I'm back in the CD business again, even if I have to clump around in those monster heels!

    I feel for all you ladies who have run into problems that could make wearing heels too painful or give you other reasons to not wear them, Let me assure you there's life after heels -- just from a little lower vantage point. And don't throw all those heels away. When I have the opportunity to sit for a photo, my heels can still be used as props! Ha!

  10. I can see why you sat on that comment for a while, I can also see why you let it go without comment.

    All of us who blog are different people, that is reflected in our blogs, https://paula-paulasplace.blogspot.com/ is very different to Femulate, I write about a number of subjects with illustrations that (I hope) match or illuminate the text. When I visit Femulate I have a good idea of what I am going to see, the core is fashion, the concept is about helping men (who so wish) to emulate females. In my cross dressing days I had no inclination to emulate ugly unfashionable women! Now I have transitioned I do not want the world to experience me as an ugly unfashionable woman! I suspect there is more behind this comment than meets the eye.
