Omg the Pon Farr comment made my night.

Anyway, you're welcome! Sometimes it's nice to find a term you're comfortable with.

Also frogs are awesome. (but princesses can be awesome too The idea is more 'provide options' than it is labeling any one thing 'bad'.)


I collected toys back in the day when KB was still around and I worked for them, so I have a fine collection of Barbies and/or Action Figures for her to get one day... of course I've taken to calling it Castle Pink Skull (I'm showing my age quite a bit) and I'm really need to find the dc/marvel little people even if they won't play nice in the talking castle (geek? me? NAH)

Hah, awesome. Like I said, options are the key. Not being a dick if she decides she likes non-girly things is also key. Sounds like that won't be a problem though.

This basically taps out my entire knowledge base of child-rearing though. My other advice includes "I think they need to eat pretty regularly." and "put sunscreen on them if they have to go in the sun. and little hats probably."

I've always liked this phrase

Like OH NO, IT'S THE TRANSLIPPERY SLOPE, WATCH OUT, FOR THIS WAY LIES SELF-DISCOVERY, AIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEE

All I'm saying is I bought a binder "for a cosplay" and then didn't take it off and now I have an appointment with a psychiatrist to possibly get hormones. CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP.

What about trans slippery waterslide? =) Slippery slope just seems to have negative connotations sometimes, while self discovery, while sometimes scary, can also be awesome?

Eh maybe that sounds to flippant...

... Huh. Nah, I was just thinking of "What are fun things that are slippery and people slide down".

Although now I am wondering how GENDERLAND-AN AMUSMENT PARK FOR ALL IDENTITIES *Subtitle* OR LACK THEROF would be laid out. Because god damnit, brain.

No, but it will fit my palate. For instanace, there'll be a frozen treat similar to ice cream, but made of very minced up chicken spread in a savory cone. All the actual ice cream will taste like fish. Potatoes will taste like grape jelly.

And we can't forget the ambience around the park. Everywhere you go, there will be flowers that smell like different varieties of fried chicken and fish.

Can I raise a question, particularly to the transsexuals here: How do you feel about the seemingly endless proliferation of gender identities and other similar labels?
