How do you translate “transition” into german? I haven’t found anything that would fit :C
I’m trying to translate the GLAAD trans 101, as there are nearly no german resources - apart from some crappy old stuff… the german-speaking world is about 20 years in the past regarding trans stuff. And also some of the vocabulary (especially from older genereations), makes me want to vomit…
I came out as trans to 3 more friends this day.
They all were accepting and with one I wrote about an hour long and he was really happy for me. That I’ve found and accepted myself and that I trust him :)
With another one it was a very short conversation but he also was very accepting.
The last one was my brothers wife. I also talked very long with here. And she said I have to come over (as a girl) soon, and I don’t have to hide it from them :3 Gonna visit them tomorrow :)
So I’ve had laser on my full face today :)
I was told that I could shave - so I did about 2 hours before (really close).
The doctor also asked if I wanted my gender marker and name changed in their client-database, as I wouldn’t be able to hand in the bills for anything anyway (I think you can get some “minutes” payed for but that’s not worth it). I got it changed :)
I also got a pretty good discount because I don’t have much hair and the area from the test-shoot also had about no hairs.
It did really hurt on some (softer) areas, the upper lip part wasn’t as bad as I imagined.
And there were also some hairs popping out right after being zapped - which was a bit weird and the technician said she’d never seen that before. But I shouldn’t worry.
This time I applied two layers of SPF 50 sun blocker. When I got home (about 40minutes) the redness had vanished.
And right now it doesn’t even hurt, maybe just a tingling :)
Can’t wait for plucking out the loose hairs in about 14 days :D
