Gender Rebels Podcast: Part Time


  1. This was extremely meaningful to me. I am part time, unfortunately will never go full time. The risks are too great. I would lose my job (I run a manufacturing division of a conservative corporation) and my family. I have been on hormones for decades and chose to take a couple vacations where I can experience full time. I live for those vacations. Sometimes this is very depressing, especially when you hear comments from the transgender community saying you really are not "trans" enough.
    That is not true. I just realize that it is only one aspect of my life. To give up all the other aspects of my life for this one need will not leave me in any better place. If I could I would live as a woman and have it all.

    I view my transness as a disability. If I were blind or had MS or some other disability I couldn't change it, I would just need to learn to live with it.

    Thank you so so much for this podcast, it was nice to finally hear from someone that it is o.k. to be me even if I can't fully transition.

    1. Hi Jodi- thank you for sharing. It's totally 100% okay to be you. :)
