A Monday Mix

Diverse Dress Code

The image below accompanied a recent Wall Street Journal report about the diverse dress codes of various airlines that now permit flight crews to wear male or female uniforms without regard to birth gender. 

“I used to be one of those people that would walk through work with my head down, just keeping to myself, and when I wear the dress, it makes me feel more confident.”
Tyler Curry, a JetBlue in-flight crew member

No Longer a Civilian

A week ago, I wrote here, “Womanless events bring out the curious among us (including myself) who wonder if any of the participants belong to our team.”

Simon wrote back about a student who participated in a womanless pageant about ten years ago. On Facebook, the student says she had a wonderful time as a pageant contestant and admits now that she should have realized then who she really was. Better late than never – last year, she announced that she was transgender.

I do not want to out her, so I will not mention her name, but her image dressed en femme for the pageant appeared on many trans-related websites and you may have seen it. By the way, she is very pretty – then and now.

My Health

I went to my primary doctor for my annual checkup last week. He gave me a “clean bill of health” and my blood work results showed no abnormalities.

Five months after total knee replacement surgery, my knee is nearly 100% back to normal. There is no pain, the dead spots are shrinking and the long red scar is being replaced with normal flesh tone skin.

I am a happy 72-year-old camper, although I have never gone camping.

I welcome all Femulate readers to submit Before and After photos for publication on the blog.
Just send your photos to stana-stana at-sign


  1. So pleased to hear about your recovery, Sweetie.

  2. Growing up I was so jealous that women had a choice in their uniform to wear the pant suit or skirt suit and I only could wear pants. In my mind, I thought to myself, if I had a choice I would always choose the skirt suit. Skirt suit just fits my personality much better.

  3. Wonderful to hear about your good health news. My sister is recovering from similar surgery. I love the before and after photos, so inspiring!

  4. Sadly, Virgin Atlantic has limited it's gender neutral uniform policy :

  5. If you don’t mind, I’d like to take a look at There are four sections:

    1- A Wikipedia section which features LGBT people of note. When possible, transgender folks are featured. On Sundays Leeja Miller takes over, with legal blogs.

    2- “Livin’ in Connecticut” is here, with various towns and cities featured. If you live in Connecticut, or know someone who does, please sign the petition.

    3- Transgender news is here. Various newspapers are featured, among others.

    4- Ed Trevors is here. He is an Anglican priest, with a liberal bent. I appreciate him more and more each day. I hope you will too.

    Please leave comments in the blog. Thanks.

  6. When the weather is hot in the Dallas story Worth area I wear dresses virtually all the time, including when I go shopping and to church. On Sunday mornings I add makeup and heels.
    In the Skirt Cafe forum there was was a mention of a stupid article of how short men's trousers may be. Someone wrote expressing dismay of how the freedom for men to dress gets more and more restricted.
    I say to hell with the restrictions, and damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.
