First of all, I understand that things can be confusing when you meet someone as a man and then find out that she is a woman, but you must remember to use the right pronouns for people. Most trans women want to be called “she”, not “they”. If that person wants to be called “they” then I apologize, but if not, then please remember to use “she”.
Secondly, if you love a trans woman, then you love a woman. Period. Trans women are no different from other women when it comes to your orientation. Maybe she was the one exception to your usual orientation of being interested in men (people can have exceptions, that’s okay) but it’s important not to lump her in with the men you have dated just because you thought at first that she was a man.
Third, I can’t tell you what your orientation is, but if you have loved men and women, I would say that something non-monoromantic, like biromantic, panromantic, polyromantic, or queer (for example) might work for you. :)
…would someone please explain to me why buying a single pair, of average, everyday undies is $10 (and only when on sale)?
I practically need to start a charity just to get new knickers… literally who the hell can afford more than one pair at those prices?
‘Best’n’Less' my ass… 'Charge You So Much For Your Knickers They’re All You Can Afford To Wear’n’Less Money For You' more like…
Frustratingly, I literally saved money to do the thing, but after the engine in Voyager started smoking the other day, and the people we took it to fixed it (temporarily) but made us leave the air-con at all times while driving (to keep the engine cool until Monday when it goes for a service/fix)… I used all the savings on petrol (because she’s an old car, and uses twice as much petrol whenever we turn the air-con on, but I still love my dinged baby).
Like, undergarmets shouldn’t cost so much… a good bra will set you back $70-$150 AU, if you want something average (and are D-cup and up; I can only imagine what the H-cup and ups are paying for theirs, as I’ve never seen a store stock over a GG).
Knickers are apparently 10-25 each…
I saw a lacy G-string in the same aisle so damn tiny it almost non-existent… $40 price tag… like… you serious?
You need something like that so damn desperately I’ll make it for you out of goddamn dental floss for 2 bucks if you provide the dental floss… same quality…?
…not actually sure why I am even talking about this… it’s procrastination short and simple… but still relevant.
As an H cup, I tend to usually wear leisure bras (my breast tissue weighs in at 16.8lbs/7.6kg and underwires fucking hurt) so I shell out a nice $25USD/$27AUD every 3 months or so. Still a lot cheaper than my $160USD/$171AUD bras I wore back when I was still an F (and before I wised up to the fact I was getting nerve damage on the underside of my breast due to weight pushing my breasts into the wires)
It’s one of those “you get what you paid for” type of deals that is complete bullshit!
I just bought several packs of cheapo period panties for $24USD/#26AUD that are the saddest excuse for underwear I have ever seen. Wear them once in the night and the band’s elastic unravels and hogties you while you’re sleeping. Getting my money back, sure, but that still means shelling out even MORE money on top of my initial purchase to have some panties that are a size bigger than I wear so I don’t have to be uncomfortable in a pad and weren’t created by Lucifer’s toilet.
Probably TMI, but fuck! I’ve bought entire outfits that cost less than what I spent on the underwear that no one would even see underneath it!
For the money women shell out of covering our bits, we should be allowed to walk around in public in just our skivvies to show them off!
Sorry, but this has been weighing on my mind the past few weeks and I had to jump on your rant to vent and rant along.
