July 1st:
It even sounds weird to me, but I've been living as a woman now for one whole entire year. I think I've mentioned some other anniversaries recently, but this truly is the big one. Despite the fact that one year ago I only owned 2 women's shirts and a skirt, I somehow found the courage to make the decision to box up all my 'boy' stuff and switch teams for good. Owning only two shirts isn't very convenient, so as a result I started off my new life as a woman very appropriately - with a whole lot of shopping.

With all that shopping came a whole lot of clothes, and it is these clothes that have put me in a real tough spot.

Having now spent a year in this role, I am in a rather unique position to determine once and for all which gender is better. I am a lot happier living as a woman, and I feel more free to be myself, but I can't really count that because it is only due to my transgenderism. A normal man wouldn't need to go to the lengths I have to just to feel happy, so I looked elsewhere to determine which gender wins. As it turns out, I am sorry ladies, but it aint us. The reason is simple: laundry. A man can put all of his clothes into the washer, then later move them all in the dryer and not even glance at any of the settings. If a woman were to do this she'd ruin all of her clothes. I've been doing laundry all night long tonight - and I really miss the old days of no-fuss washing. I am actually considering switching back to spend the next year of my life as a guy again.

P.S. (just kidding)
