Special Friends

January 4, 2009
Rashel is the perfect example of the power of femininity and how femininity is superior to the male ego. When I see her life displayed in her Tribe pages and the beauty of her dancing through pictures, and her feminine mystique, my desires to be a woman are uncontrollable. She is the perfect example of why 21 years ago, I began to live a daily life of humiliation by coming out of the closet and announcing to the whole world, "I am a man who wants to be a woman, so for the rest of my life, I am going to live, dress, and act as a woman."

Despite being sexually attracted to women, I can't help but want to be a woman. Women are so cool, so beautiful, so confident in the superiority, so feminine, who would not want to be a woman. Rashel, seems to be an exmaple of all these qualities.

I live, dress, and act as a woman, despite wanting to be with women. I totally pass as a woman until I open my mouth and speak and everybody knows I am man living as a woman at that point. Once women realize I am a man, the general reaction is laughter at the delight of my humiliation and their supriority. They know that they are so superiou, that men like myself are willing to humiliate themselves daily just to be like them.

The humiliation is ten fold when I am sexually attracted to a woman and she laughs at me once she realizes I am a man. She will even scorn me if the realization that I am a man comes out while I am hitting on her. There is nothing more humiliating than to o have a woman you are sexually attracted to reject you by telling you, "No chance in hell, would I go out with you. I prefer men, not sissie who live as a women."

Despite being humiliated like this daily, I would not change a thing about my life as I would much rather have the world view me a sissy striving to achieve the femininity that Rashel has perfected, than to live as a man. It doesn't make sense, but that is just the power that women have over men.

I adore Shelly. She is smart, sassy, sexy, athletic, graceful, goofy and dorky. Not many people combine all those talents. I always learn something new from her. I love watching her dance and watching her teach the into class. That s the bestest intro class to Hot Pot.. they do shimmy overlay drills for like 10 min!... and only cause Shelly's teaching it. Plus have you seen their cute choreographies... yeah Shelly did those too. Shelly is so bad ass, and yet such a good soul. :)

About Me

about me
I work for the USDA at the Western Human Nutrition Reaserch Center on the UC Davis campus as a Project Coordiantor and a Support Scientist. It not only uses all my lab skills, but also uses my overly anal organization skills, lol!!!! The true joy in my life though is dance. I dance fulltime with Amy Sigil at Hot Pot studio. I am a member of Unmata, a professional troup that travels the world...check us out at or I also teach the intro to bellydance classes Wednesday and Monday evenings. Between those two things I am extremly busy, but still manage to find time to hang and party with my freinds =)
